On my last recital, I performed the first two movements of Mozart's Piano Sonata in F Major K533. Coming to a close in the second movement, I forgot the chord I was supposed to play and started to improvise through a variety of keys until arriving back home to B Flat Major for the final remaining bars of the piece. If you look closely, you can see me smiling all the way through the ending.

Skip to 5:30 if you don't want to listen to the whole thing––but it is a good Mozart movement smile

Currently have checked out of my local library two recently released biographies:
Schumann "The Faces and the Masks" by Judith Chernaik
Fryderyk Chopin "A Life and Times" by Alan Walker

I'm into the first part of the Schumann, which is a great read, as Schumann kept extensive diaries. His early stage pre-Clara is fascinating, with his broken engagement to Ernestine von Fricken, which was the genesis for "Carnaval" and "Etude Symphoniques". The author does brief commentary on all the major piano and orchestral works by Robert. and incorporates all the biographical background into the music.

Haven't started the Walker book yet, but it had great reviews in the "Guardian". Alan Walker is famous for his definitive 3 volume bio of Franz Liszt.

If anyone has read, or is reading these books, please share your thoughts!

I haven’t posted here in a while, so I thought I would share these recordings I made of 5 Brazilian Tangos by Ernesto Nazareth. Other than some flubs, and a low audio, I hope they came out OK. I’m experimenting with video recording (or, I don’t have a clue on what I’m doing) and also having fun with the tropical setting and my outfit, even thought it might be ridiculous but who cares? Not me! This music is a lot of fun to play, and it feels very satisfying to the fingers.
The pieces are:
Here is the You Tube link to the playlist, hope it works!:

A peaceful and blessed holiday season to you all. Thanks for being here!

This holiday recording (the holiday arrives at 2:40) was made on an iPad Pro2 using Cubasis to record the Shigeru 11se piano patch. Orchestral strings from iSymphonic app and horns and choir from BeatHawk. The piano part was improvised.

Kali Audio is a relatively new (a year old ) company run by ex JBL employees. They released the LP-6 (6.5" woofer) earlier this year and just released the LP-8 (8" woofer) studio monitors. The LP-6 goes for $150USD and the LP-8 $250USD. They have decent power output, and balanced/unbalanced inputs. They also have different Boundary EQ settings that optimize the speaker output relative to its placement. Unfortunately they're only sold by US distributors which means extra shipping and no possibility of returns if importing them from Canada, but they seem to be pretty decent studio monitors at an excellent price.

Specs can be found here: https://www.kaliaudio.com/lone-pine-detail

Anyone has experiences with these studio monitors? I wonder how they compare to the similarly sized Yamaha HS7s and HS8s.

I am about to buy this one. But with extensive googling, it is not found differences bet/ NX 40. I guess there will not be of significance, though, if anyone knows about it, please help me to be informed of.

Thank in advance for inputs.

If you're interested in this piano you can check out the album Bluelle at www.lawrencelougheed.com (also available on all of the usual music sites, such as Spotify, Apple Music etc.)

I used a mix of six mic perspectives and EQ to shape and warm up the sound. Ambience was added using Seventh Heaven Professional.
