I'm thinking of going too, I am not too far away in Las Vegas. But the most reasonable ticket is $130ish, and from that seat she's a tiny speck in the horizon.
Listening to some John Adams now to see if he's my cup of tea..

Martha Argerich will be playing Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Lahav Shani tomorrow, 21 Dec 2018, broadcast live in HD on Medici.TV. Unfortunately, it is only accessible to those with a premium subscription, but if you love Argerich and Prokofiev's 3rd, then it might be worth the $18 to sign up for a month. Sadly, I'm going to be busy during that time so I will have to catch the recorded version later, but if someone absolutely wants to see it live when broadcast, you can PM me. First come, first serve wink

Get ready for a thrilling end to a thrilling year! Martha Argerich and Lahav Shani take on Prokofiev, live from Rotterdam. Yuja Wang in recital, streaming from Berlin.

Join us as we bid adieu to 2018 in style!

LIVE SOON PREMIUM Friday, Dec. 21st at 12:15pm (EST)/ 5:15pm (GMT)

You’re in luck, guys. It’s a rematch between him and Thalberg. Pay-per-view, or live in Atlantic City.


If you don't talk to your children about equal temperment, who will?

Managed to avoid gun fire around my house on this Christmas evening as it turned out to be just a few "pops" from leftover 4th of July fireworks that some neighbors have been fooling around with. grin

IMO:

It depends.

For example:

Yours, yes.
Mine, no. ha

Mine probably not either, but I'll be performing the Brahms Quintet with some fabulous string players on Sunday January 13th at the Lyceum in Alexandria, VA. There will also be a performance of a wind quintet by Ewazen, which I am very keen to hear.

I'm in DC, so this is just across the river. If I come, I'll be sure to come up and say hi.

I completely lost track of time and but I was in the first PW online gathering and Sibylle asked about piano recitals we are each attending and I remember all of a sudden that I am going to attend your quintet performance. So definitely will be attending tomorrow afternoon at 3pm. I will come up afterwards and say hi. And no, I will not be the person in the audience following along with the score. (cmb13 dissuaded me from that notion wink )

SiFi: Well, don't think I didn't give it the ole college try. smile I came, tried all the doors and the place was locked up tight as a button on account of the heavy snowfall. So I went a few doors down to the La Trattoria where I had a wonderful pasta dinner, the chef made off-menu specialties just for me as the only customer, and I chatted up a voluble waitress on topics ranging from bitcoins to politics to Asians in America to piano recitals to opera. So not an evening lost. When is the the make-up day for your performance?

Well, I don't want it to be said I hadn't come prepared to ask SiFi's permission to film it - with my tripod and everything - on the behest of our merry piano party group yesterday smile

In fact, SiFi, do let me know if filming it would be ok when your performance does finally end up being rescheduled smile

OT:

@Mark_C:

Did manage to get through this holiday season relatively unscathed (so-to-speak) and there are no other pressing issues going on other than waiting on getting the new Generac generator installed at my house (as a date of Feb. 5th has been set) and this has been a priority for now over buying the Baldwin SF-10 grand.

Will only be going forward with digital pianos only as I intend to eventually trade in the Clavinova CLP-585 for a new AvantGrand N2X should that upgraded model eventually become available.

Otherwise, everything else is a moot point! grin ha

OMG, I'm so sorry! I should have posted something about the cancellation here like I did on Facebook. Thank you Tyrone for being so wonderfully sanguine about the whole thing.

Obviously this was a huge disappointment for all of us, especially since we had a really good dress rehearsal on Saturday. The annoying thing is that FMMC doesn't postpone, they just cancel because their calendar is pretty much set in stone for the entire season. I'm brainstorming possible alternative venues--have a potentially promising one in mind. After 8 months of work, it would be awful not to be able to perform this incredible piece live in recital. I'll keep you in the loop this time. You're obviously a good bloke! So glad there was a voluble waitress on hand to assuage what must have been your considerable frustration. smile smile

@Mark_C:

Please note this will be my last post in the forums as "pv88" (i.e., original member) as I am giving my formal apologies to everyone here for now and the reason for having been banned was due to a post in the following thread:

http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/2529867/Physis_Piano.html

Being banned as "pv88" in no way reflects as to who I am (i.e., Richard) outside of these forums since I am now a retired person that will be turning 60 in May. I intend to move forward with trading in a Clavinova CLP-585 towards a new AvantGrand "N2X" digital piano should Yamaha eventually release the new model.

Have decided that an acoustic piano is not going to work out in my old house due to very wide humidity swings and therefore will be playing on digital pianos, only. Getting a Generac generator installed soon (in February) has been a priority as I have had several power outages.

This will be one of my last posts in the forums -- have a good day! grin

"agn2x" means:
