My piano teacher, whom I hope you will meet in July, came from a very ordinary family. When she was a girl there was no question of her family buying a piano, but they did have a piano accordion. Apparently her father would lay on his back and hold the accordion, her mother would work the bellows and Genka, now my teacher, would practice on the keyboard.

Brewer is presently booking the last of our travel logistics which I will PM when complete.

Finding a suitable sitter for the cats will present a significant challenge.

As per usual, I REALLY wish I could make it, but it's not going to happen this year either! frown I'm so sorry to be missing these parties (plus one of my favourite teachers and awesome person overall is Borislava Taneva (Bulgarian herself))...

Oh well... there's always next year...

I have been working on the acoustics and appearance of the ballroom. It is improving every day as I get more ceiling in.

I am working on the duet I will play with Cathryn999. Right now, it could be called the "Slow Motion Polka of Death."

I know it well. I shall dance to it. It is the one that goes 10 bars and then stops dead?

As I type this the tuner is working on the last of the pianos. They will all be tuned a day or two before the actual party.

@malkin, on the slow motion polka of death are you doing the left hand or the right hand? I have been doing the right but the left looks a tad easier and I would be happy to take this option if you haven't already nabbed it for yourself :-)

Sounds more like a brass band.

Trying desperately to get the ceiling fan in the ballroom fixed before the party....

Fancy bringing along a few capacitors anybody?

Little ones?
I guess a better question might be "How much mass?"

Send the specs.

We routinely bring turmeric to my step-mum as she can't seem to find it in her little village. We were ready to bring buffered aspirin to my dad 5 years ago, but we forgot to pack it. He passed away, but we are still working through the aspirin.

I don't guess you'd like any out of date aspirin?

I take enteric coated aspirin as a prophylactic almost every day. (I don't take it if I am going to do anything that might cause me to bruise or cut myself that day).

I have, now, heard from Veneta regarding the recital. The easiest thing is simply to paste her message to me:

Dear Philip,

I can now confirm the programme for the recital in your house. It will be the same as my new CD's:

Johann Sebastian Bach – Prelude and Fugue in f-sharp minor, WTK II, BWV 883
Felix Mendelssohn – Song without Words, op. 30, No. 6
Franz Schubert – Impromptus op. 142, No. 1 and op. 90, No. 3
Sergei Rachmaninoff – Preludes op. 33, Nos. 4, 5, Musical Moment No. 4
Rachmaninoff-Tchaikovsky – Nursery Song
Schubert-Liszt – Ständchen and Gretchen am Spinnrade
Ferenz Liszt – Concert Etude “La Campanella”
Sergei Prokofiev – Sonata No. 3

These are twelve pieces, approximately 60 minutes in length. If you have some other ideas or suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.

Here you can follow the progress of the CD's making: http://neynska.com/new-cd

I think we have squeezed all the juice out of this one. So I am just posting to say we are, now, full up, if you expect accomodation.
