Nice to see this thread, Richard. Figured you'd been busy with something so great to hear it's all good with house and garden projects. Which reminds me, I'm behind on that front.

On another front, I've adopted a feral black cat just this past Wednesday. He is young adult 3.5 yrs, 5.8kg. There were other cats more adapted to humans. Most seem to have some issue or another. For this one it was anxiety. He hadn't adjusted very well at the shelter. It came from SPCA so not sure of the exact history. Not likely that good. Anyway, I decided I'd take a chance on him and now it is like the coolest thing. Like taming a wild animal. We've made quite a few breakthroughs already this week and I expect I may pet him for the first time today or soon anyway. Barring any setbacks. Meanwhile he has the window perch at the front of the house and is spending the majority of his time there and seems to really like it. His name will be Winston. This isn't dedicated to him, but I liked it anyway. Yes, is beautiful Spring Day here too. Maybe I should do some yard work. For sure, some practice. Happy Sunday.

Hi everyone! It's a real pleasure to see this thread again. Thanks Richard and Greener for getting us restarted.

I'm finally getting around to checking in with PWF after a few years away from it. I'm still at it with the piano and still working on Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C Sharp Minor, Richard. We'll chat privately later.

This is a perfect way to restart our music sharing again. It's been a long time since I've done links to our music contributions. Hopefully, I'll be able to share what we're listening to at home today.

Happy Sunday everyone!

Good morning, all. Nice to see some responses last week.

Great to hear from you, Carl, and I wait to hear what you've been doing as well as the Rach! I enjoyed the Prokofiev though I had to find an alternative video before I was able to finish it a couple of days later.

Here's my selection for the week. A couple of gentle introductions to wakefulness then something rousing to give you the energy for a productive day.







Have a happy Sunday, everyone.

Thank you Richard, happy Easter to you, as well.

By the way, has Rostosky left the forums? Haven't seen a post from him here for years.

Happy Easter to of all of my RST friends! Thanks for the beautiful music Richard. I particularly love the Russian Eastern Overture. I'll be listening to the other pieces a bit later today. I'll also be back a bit later to share a couple of Music pieces.

Richard, I'm still working on the Rachmaninoff piece. Up until now it's the only thing I've been working on. Consequently, I haven't had much to report and haven't been posting for some time. Perhaps it might be better for me to post on the old Rachmaninoff thread. We can talk a bit more in detail on that thread. You might find it interesting to learn how my teacher took me off of learning everything else that was working on, and focus strictly on the Rachmaninoff piece.

I'll be back here shortly to share a little music. Have a nice day everyone!

Carl

Good morning, folks.





Theodor, Rossy's initial absence wasn't completely voluntary but life has a way of filling in the holes.

Have a peaceful Sunday!

I'm enjoying the JC Bach now, Carl, so at least the link is working smile

Great to see you!

Thanks Richard! I've missed being here. (Look for a PM from me shortly.)

I'm glad the link is working. I've finally gotten to the bottom of the improper display problem. It was the device I was using. Anyways, to celebrate getting this resolved, here's a piece I had the pleasure of listening to live a few weeks ago at a piano recital.

Bonjour, mes amis.

Just dipping the toes into Bach's Double Violin Concerto today. The gentle second movement, Largo. Schubert's Miller and the Book here as piano solo and a very moving interpretation. Don Juan from Richard Strauss to finish.







Have a good day.

Thank you, Richard. Lovely Bach and all nice. Schubert stood out for me. Happy Sunday.

Greetings RST Friends!

Thanks for the music Richard and Greener. I'm eager to listen to them. I really enjoyed the postings last Sunday. Me and the other half particularly enjoyed listening to the Haydn symphony.

Lately, we've been listening to several compositions by Dmitri Shostakovich. I've been listening to the Waltz #2 from his Jazz Suite #2.

Today I'm going to post both the Waltz #2 which piqued my curiosity to learn more about his Jazz Suite and listen to the entire composition. I enjoy both Jazz and classical music. I'm very interested in how Shostakovich treats this style of music.

I'm interested in your thoughts. Have a peaceful Sunday!







Carl

A little late starting today. Loved the Rick Wakeman, Jeff. I've been a fan of his playing for so many years. Yours Is No Disgrace was a favourite with the band and slaved over for months!

The Shostakovich waltz I already knew, Carl, the rest of the album was largely unfamiliar music but a familiar style. Outside his Ninth Symphony there's little of his music I could actually name but I enjoyed working through the album in sections - too much all at once for me, I'm afraid.







Have a good Sunday, everyone.



Richard

Greetings RST friends! I'm afraid my Sunday posting will be Monday. Richard, I'm looking forward to hearing your postings this evening. Stay tuned!
