Why? Have you and Irina Lankova progressed from mutual admiration to FFF (fast facebook friends) ?

Stephen Hough, piano
J. Wolfe: Fountain of Youth
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3
Brahms: Symphony No. 1

With its grand orchestration and stormy, romantic movements, Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto is a vital precursor to the composer’s “heroic” middle-period style, which the NSO explores later this season in Beethoven at 250. Stephen Hough effortlessly conquers the concerto, which demands remarkable mastery and range of color from the soloist. Brahms’s radiant First Symphony and Julia Wolfe’s Fountain of Youth complete the program, making a thrilling NSO debut for conductor Louis Langrée, Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.



Lucky you 2!!

And par for the course for people who live in D.C., it's the visitor from away who first finds out about this concert while the D.C. resident was clueless blush

It’s only a week before I’ll be off to Vienna again, but I can’t miss this. Haven’t heard my favourite sonata live in literally decades

Just letting ye know... get your tickets if you were planning to.

Thankfully, I have my tickets for Kissin's Philadelphia recital in May. And good seats as well!

I'm thinking about getting tickets for his Chicago recital, also in May. Might be too late, though. It's just hard to plan that far in advance...

Dooooo eeeeet! You won't possibly regret this. And the way it looks, even if something completely unavoidable comes up, you'll have no trouble reselling the ticket(s).

Is anyone from or in Budapest and has experience with the Bela Bartok hall? I am here for a couple of days and want to attend a concert tomorrow, "Three Works by Bartok" (Two Portraits, op. 5, 3rd piano concerto with Dezső Ránki, and Bluebeard's Castle). It is sold out, but I read that the hall includes a designated standing area. I wrote the hall and got no response- has anyone done standing tickets there? If yes, how early does one need to be there?

@Mark_C:

Off topic note:

Wanted to follow up to my previous posts so you would know that I do now own the AvantGrand N2 (best hybrid digital piano currently available) and also the Yamaha P-515 (just recently acquired and is the reason for the new member name) along with the older Yamaha Clavinova CLP-990 that dates from 2001 and received it from a New York, NY seller, here -- in this thread:

Yamaha Clavinova CLP-990M

The other Baldwin SF-10 grand piano purchased from Greg Kottmann (at Piano Pros in West Chester, OH) had to be sold after encountering issues with legs that had a stability problem (as the piano wobbled when played) and required replacement and there were old bass strings that were quite "tubby" sounding -- this turned out to be quite enough disappointment to sell the piano and move on.

All current digital(s) play and sound better than that Baldwin SF-10 grand piano!

How many different threads do you need to post the same OT message about the pianos you now own? I’m sure Mark has seen your personal OT message by now or will soon since you have posted this three times.

I wish there was a thread for upcoming UNimportant concerts! In any event, if you live or work in DC and want to take a break from said life/work, I’ll be performing some Liszt in a lunchtime recital at Calvary Baptist Church in Chinatown this coming Friday, October 11, at noon. Program to include the mighty Vallee d’Obermann. Admission is free, but with a suggested (i.e. mandatory) donation. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

I think it may be time to catch up on your piano progress. I will likely come since it is 0.5 miles from me - a 10 mins walk.

You obvious didn’t get memo:
Performances by PW members are ALWAYS important 😊
