I am pretty sure I have just committed forum-suicide. So on the off chance this is my last post I figured I better make it a good one.

How so PPP? where? do tell.lol.

Strike that, just found it..
Personally I think thats fair comment and should not be seen as anything else.
The dude in question makes a continual and energetic effort to just argue and be offensive in his arguments on just about every subject that crops up.

How many folk are on his Ignore list I do not know, but I personally asked him to put me on his list.

My guess is its probably the biggest ignore list on PW.

This actually should tell the mods something, ie: He is Not open or receptive to other viewpoints?

There is just no reasoning with him about anything at all.

Somene had to say it PPP, well done indeed.

Ah, my most favorite composer...thanks!
(NOT my most favorite pianist).

PPP, I hate to burst your bubble...however, I am quite certain you are neither the first -nor will be the last- to have made such a comment. It's possible you will be in time-out for a while, however, so see you later , should that occur! smile

Well, I was able to login this morning . . . so that's a good sign.

More Gould (MY most favourite pianist wink ). . . and why not? It is Sunday after all; a good day to be a bit self-indulgent.



Do you know. It just occurred to me that I don't think I have ever posted any pianist other than Gould on this thread. Lets fix that. Here is Anton Kuerti playing the Scherzo from Beethoven's piano sonata No.18. . . Or perhaps its Anton Qwerty. I am not sure. Maybe someone can clarify.

Greetings everyone! PPP, my iPad prevents me from seeing your earlier post. That will have to wait until I get to my PC. I enjoyed your piano postings, however. Lovely!!

I am now done with our big event at the theater, and it was successful. Now I will have a bit more time to post here during the week. I do have some classical postings for today. My first selection is "Concerto for Trumpet" by Austrian composer and contrabassist, Johannes M. Sperger.

I seem to be in the mood for trumpets today. My final post for today will be "Suite in D Major for Trumpet and Orchestra (Vivace)" by George F. Handel. Enjoy the rest of your day!

PPP, I’m glad to see you are still able to login in this forum smile. I also love Glenn Gould, that recording on the Italian Concerto is simply legendary.


Griffin, it’s good when you are “in the mood for trumpets”, since you pick so amazing music. I loved those posts on Sperger and Handel. Btw, that was a superlative version on Faure’s Pavana, with beautiful paintings. I always feel moved when I listen to this work, the orchestal version is fantastic as well.


Edited by Recaredo (07/01/12 08:20 PM)
Edit Reason: I wrote Telemann instead of Sperger. What was I thinking?

HaHa, i thought it was because of the Buck65 post . Guessing it's somewhere else. There seem to be a few egos on PW that would fit that description - thankfully they stay out of here.

Hi fellow Rostoskians. Back from the pagan weekend and all in one piece. Funny the talk on here turned to drums at the time. Lots of drumming at the festival (any festival really) and the other night i re-watched Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (for the 100th time) and re-watched this scene a few times. Great soundtrack BTW.



Love getting my baroque and raga fixes here and not sure where else I'm going to find a Cult classic followed shortly by a Antony and the Johnsons beauty. PPP, that bagatelle performance is amazing. Also, that Duck song is now a favorite at our house. It still gets at least between 10 and 20 viewings a day as requested by my 2yo. Sure made a welcome change from the funny cat vids he would ask for.

The whole of OZ is a-buzz with excitement as the Sydney Piano Comp starts this week - everyone is going crazy. So being Paino World, my post today has nothing to do with the Piano Comp.

This is Muse - new song for the Olympics. I have become a fan of Muse over the last 10 years or so, but while good, i feel this song is one battle drumbeat away from being a Eurovision loser.

Fellow Rostokians! love it or Rostoskites or Rostoskyites!

Anyw ays, Love Muse Vegas, allways have since first listen, interestingly There is a utube vid of Bellamy playing a chopin nocturne on Acoustic piano, they are no pretenders at all.

Saying that I prefer early muse ( as is much the case with most bands the early stuff is usually better as it is not as refined and manipulated.

The thing with me is if I hear a musical phrase no matter how long ago, It goes into my memory bank and stays there forever, my brain just works like that, maybe a blessing in some respects but a burden in others......

such was the case here with the new muse olympic thing....( which I hate beyond measure)

The oopening phrase.. where had I heard that before?

20 seconds later on utube my brain spat out the phrase from years ago... Nielson and or Eric carman and the song "all by myself"

Its where the lyrics say "I never needed anyone" in the very first line of the song.
This is what muse have used in the first eleven seconds of their olympic song, whether intentionally or otherwise.


check it out yourself...

Hey everybody!
The piano is fine... I am not worthy!
Rossy, I have deposited the money into your Milla Jovovich fund to help get that restraining order lifted.

All by Myself is one of my guilty pleasures. Billy O knows I've had too much to drink when I put that song on the jukebox, and my friend Mickey and I start dancing and singing it at the top of our lungs. I cannot sing, and neither can Mickey, which makes it even better.
However, as much as I love that song, we all know that Eric Carmen lifted that from Rachmaninov's second concerto (second movement).

Or Rosians for those times when fewer keystrokes is better (or just feeling lazy). In any case, here in Oz you would probably be known as Rosso.

Yeah, its plain to see the links with Eric "Hungry Eyes" Carmen and Rach. But i feel Muse/Bellamy probably bypassed Eric Carmen and went straight to Rach. There are other Rach/Chopin inspired tracks in their catalog. It's fine by me, as they pull it off very convincingly, though my only gripe is they didnt reference it which leaves the boofhead Muse fanbois unaware of where the music comes from.

I agree they are no pretenders....and were probably really Born That Way wink And they can create some pretty intense noise....one of my faves

Greetings everyone! Finally, I'm on vacation this week and am catching up on all of these wonderful postings! Rupak, I'm missing your Indian Classical Music. I assume you've been as occupied as I have the past few weeks! I'll look forward to the next ICM postings whenever you are ready. smile

Now that I have a little more time than just my Sunday classical postings, I am turning my attention to the blues this morning. Here is Taj Mahal with "Bright Lights, Big City."

I must admit I only half listened to Paul Butterfield when I was younger. However, the more I listen to him now, the more I love what I hear! Here is "Driftin' Blues" performed by the Paul Butterfield Blues Band at the 1967 Monterey Festival.

Greetings everyone! I've been reminiscing today. About what, you may ask! Hasn't anyone noticed that this thread is now a year old and is approaching 2 million views? To mark this occasion I've decided to post just a few of my first postings that got me involved with RST.

My very first post was in July 6, 2011 when I posted Stevie Wonder's very first recording I heard as a teenager in the early 1960s. Here is "Fingertips"

WAYNE!!!! We sure have been missing you around here! How fitting that you have returned on the first anniversary of RST!! I had planned to do some additional postings. However, I'm at home on vacation and got lost in some home projects and catching up on piano practice. I'll listen to your posts a bit later. I do hope you're doing well. I'll send you a PM later on after I've had a chance to these postings!

Ciao!

Hi Richard! It's good to see you show up and post today! Thanks. I'll be doing my listening later. Right now, I'll be getting back to piano practice. BTW, I've incorporated several of your suggestions from other threads regarding piano practice. I've found them very helpful!

Speaking of practice...off I go for some more! I'll check in later.

Welcome back to one of the cherished "founding fathers " of RST and a respected elder indeed... excellent dude, excellent.

I am now actually a dedicated gaga fan after seeing her do a jazz number followed by three numbers with just her and her piano,....

So Wayne , you were correct, she is a talented lady indeed, And I was wrong to mock her you will be glad to know....

ANYWAYS WAyne is back wow Loved the Glass wayne have you got the sheet? I hope so, so I can get to look at it and have a go too!!
