LOL. Coming from the investment banking world, when I think of Boris Berezovsky, I'm thinking of this fellow, and not him. So I started a moment when I thought you were referring to some deceased person!

Tonight - Peter Serkin playing the Goldberg Variations (plus two Mozart works). If I feel inspired, I'll post a report here.

For those interested, I just posted a review.

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

So, Tyrone, FMMC in an unprecedented move has rescheduled our Brahms quintet for Feb. 3, Super Bowl Sunday. But don't worry, it's only an hour long recital and there'll be plenty of time to get back to where you need to be for the kickoff.

Same time and venue--3:00 PM at the Lyceum in Alexandria. Unfortunately the wind band were not available to perform on the new date, so I will have to fill out the program with some Brahms solo piano music.

Here's the program:

• Brahms: Two Rhapsodies, op. 79. Simon Finlow, piano.
• Brahms: Piano Quintet in F Minor, op. 34. Simon Finlow, piano; Robyn Tessin and Carolyn Esko Carlson, violins; Julia Moline, viola; Valerie Matthews, cello.

And here's the link with all the info (just ignore the picture--that's not us!): http://www.fmmc.org/event/lyceum-concert-series-22/

Would love to see you and all your friends there! I'll be the bloke playing the piano (I think it's a Boston 7 foot, or maybe bigger).

I would love it if someone could do video! We'll probably have a professional quality audio recording, at least for the quintet. I don't think any of the string players are union members, so feel free to record at will.

For those in Northeast Ohio, Garrick Ohlsson will be performing Busoni's Piano Concerto with the Cleveland Orchestra under the direction of Alan Gilbert February 7-9 at Severance Hall. I saw Ohlsson play the Busoni back around 1990 and, well, I still have to pick up my jaw from the floor when hearing the recording.

In case anyone is interested, in the Washington DC area, there will be a program called "Extreme Chopin" at the Strathmore in Bethesda, Maryland on Saturday (2/2) evening at 8pm. The Washington Post has a review here of the pianist and the program.

Interesting, especially about that mazurka for unaccompanied singer.

But, it this thing in there means what it seems to mean:

"As far as we know, Brian’s the first pianist to attempt this,” says National Philharmonic music director Piotr Gajewski, who pitched the idea to Ganz in 2009.

.....it's wrong, at least sort of wrong.

Alexander Brailowsky pretty famously did a series of concerts, I think in the 1920's, of Chopin's complete works, which of course would have been only the works known at that time to exist. I think that series was put forth as the first time this was being done.
I'd be surprised if others since then haven't done it too.

Trying to arrange to go to Zurich next Sunday to see Beatrice Rana play Beethoven's third concerto (anyone?:)).

I agree:( I moved here (southwest Germany) a few months ago, to a music school in a tiny town that you need to zoom in hard on the map to find, and the connections from and to this place are usually difficult and end up being long and expensive for a student- definitely not something you can do regularly if you don't have a car. When I was in the US for two years I had it so much better, all in one city (Cincinnati), which had so much to offer I didn't then realize how lucky I was- I saw Grimaud, Lupu, Uchida, Mutter, Tetzlaff, Shaham, Fliter, Tokyo Quartet, Pavo Jaarvi, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Mahler symphonies, Verdi and Britten requiems, and so much more. Here I am much more concert-deprived and still can't make peace with the fact that I've managed to see just one outside of school in the last four months (Ebene Quartet in Beethoven and Brahms). But winter break is coming up and I will be arranging all my travels around concerts- I can't wait! (Bachtrack.com is a website I use often- you can search by city, by performer, or by piece).

I've never heard of Rondeau, but his performance promises to be hair-raising.

I’ve just booked tickets to see comedian turned pianist Alistair McGowan in Leeds in April.

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/alistair-mcgowan-introductions-to-classical-piano-tickets-55627832344

It promises to be an entertaining evening and a useful insight as to what can be achieved by a late starter who now has an album and piano tour to his name.
