I am attempting the impossumble - that is, posting a photo (it's my first time ever, and I don't even have my son here to help me...). Anyway, this is Gerald. Or is it Ralph?

Yes, it's expensive in SF, but still...hey, the public library is one of the rare ones that has that Russian edition of complete works of Medtner that Sofronitsky worked on (and they used to have the oh-so-posh original edition of Leon Dudley's Opus Clav., but someone seems to have borrowed it permanently (not I, I hasten to add, even tho' I checked it out and read through it)). And next season the SFS has Ax playing the Szymanowski Sinfonia Concertante, Ohlsson doing the Prokofiev 5th, Argerich playing the Ravel G major, Zimerman in the Lutoslawski, and Wang in the Prokofiev 2nd. I mean, piano paradise or what?

Currawong, I can tell he has been watching you play lots of Schubert - it looks like he's mastered the key of C major!

Now we know how you could afford to put the replica of the Musikverein in your house!

My dog always asks to be let out as soon as I start practicing. Either he's commenting on the playing or the sound of the piano is some sort of canine diuretic.

My neighbor once mentioned that when I first moved in she thought I was playing the classical music radio station and tried to tune into what I was playing because it was so nice.

I assure you the opposite is true: because I live in SF I can't afford too much of anything! shocked

After playing you should announce in a very loud radio voice: That was pianist Gabe Racz, performing Béla Bartok's 'Sonata for piano, Sz.80 - BB.88'...

OT: Have you heard of Xiayin Wang, Mr Kitty? she came from Shanghai conservatory. I think she is working on DMA at MSM. If you have heard her playing, I'd like to hear your opinion on her playing.
