That may be the very first post on RST that ends like an actual real life letter to my Mum.

Like this... "Thanks for the Christmas present Mum, I have allways wanted a very high neck polo neck jumper that makes my neck and chin itch. Dont worry about the spots, I got some cream off the doctor, it was only an alergic reaction to that particular pink dye that was used in the polyester/wool mix.

Do you think pink will go with my green wellies that you got me for my birthday? I guess now that summer is nearly here in Wales we will soon find out.

Lots of love, Rossy. XXX "

We are celebrating the anniversary of this thread and speaking of anniversaries, I've thought we could also celebrate another one. Twenty years ago, José Monge Cruz died in Badalona (Barcelona), he was only forty one years old.

Here’s a little tribute to Camarón de la Isla.

I think I am still struggling with showing my masculine side, this may be due to hating football, most other so called "sports" ( apart from the sunday sport which is a different type of sport entirely) Also I hate wars and macho posturing and am not impresssed with most boy toys.
Actually thats not exactly true about all sports, I do enjoy watching the womens beach volleyball, because its pleasing to my eyes and there is much bouncing around.

I havent a clue how they score points though, and before anyone spoils it for me with inane sport related drivel, I dont want to know how they score points, thats not why I watch it.

Thanks for the info wayne, am now working on metamorphosis.

Hi, Wayne, nice to meet you! Heard a lot about you, especially anytime Gaga gets mentioned..

I just can't get into her taste for clothing, however.... smile

Welcome back Wayne!! omg when you posted that Glass piece that you were working on, I thought you meant you were playing it in the video and wondered how you got so hairy.

Recaredo, I love when you play Flamenco music!

I think Gaga's toned it down a little with her clothes.. lately some of it looks even wearable. Except for the shoes(which may be my general aversion to thick clunky wedges and platforms).

Then again, maybe I'm not seeing much of Gaga since Katie Holmes jumped out of Tom Cruise's DC-8, in order to save Suri from going on that cruise ship.

Hi Wayne, nice to finally meet you. You should have read the stuff everyone wrote about you. I thought you were more myth than man really, but don't worry I didn't believe one word of it.
I liked the Glass BTW.

Indeed, I thought a "false Wayne" or "pseudo - wayne" was staring in the video too at first till I realised that this was not waynes haunted piano at all.

AimeeO o O O O O O woW Milla singing,, and not an easy song either, another string to her bow, thanks for posting, I knew nothing of this at all, excellent.

Greetings everyone! I've been enjoying all of these wonderful postings. Wayne, I enjoyed the Glass piece as well. Recaredo, you know how much I love flamenco. Thanks!

We've had some awfully hot days this week in Minneapolis. It was up to 39 degrees Celsius most of the week, ruining my plans for long bike rides during my vacation. Today is much better, however, and this song by Bill Withers expresses my good feelings. Enjoy!


"Lovely Day"

It's important to get in touch with your feminine side.



Okay, enough of that.

Apparently Milla has several albums.

We just watched A Good Year.. for the millionth time. I really love the music in the movie.

Hi Wayne - thanks for introducing me to metamorphosis no 2 which has been going round and round in my head ever since. We've now got the sheet music and are busy trying it for ourselves!

Wayne - thanks for the antidote - though I think I prefer the 'ailment'. 'The Temptations' was just too extended for me and lost me during the long intro, but I'm happy to stick with the metamorphosis 'bug'! smile

PPP -What a phenomenal guitarist?!- the skill and expressiveness seem effortless wow
It looks so unpretentious and he's clearly just enjoying himself. thumb

Today, I'm going to be a bit lazy with my Sunday classical postings. I'm going to do a couple of reruns of the very first Sunday classical postings I did a year ago when we got this thread started. Besides, I'm on vacation and I can be lazy if I want! laugh

For some, it was also the first time they became aware of the rich classical music history of trumpet virtuoso, Wynton Marsalis. Yes, he now feels more at home performing the jazz he is most known for today. However, here is a sample of his rich contributions to the world of Classical music performances. Here, he performs "Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 III in F major BWV 1047- Allegro Assai," by Johann Sebastian Bach with the English Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Anthony Newman. This performance took place in 1995.

Here is one more I posted last July that I still enjoy listening to. Here are guitarists Christopher Parkening and David Brandon performing "Spanish Dance No. 1," by Manual de Falla.

The Marsalis family is very talented. Wynton's brother, Branford, opened a community music center with with Harry Connick Jr. about a year ago. It offers support for the local musicians, and gives free music lessons to the kids, along with training in things like audio and lighting. They give back so much.

PPP, I get tired watching that. Too much bouncing!

Here's some Glazunov.

Glad you like it, Griffin. I like this one a lot... I wish I could give my music half of the emotion he does when performing!


Anyway, here's some Chabrier.


Off to get some stuff done! See ya later!

Greetings! It's hard to believe my vacation is just about over. At least I got plenty of rest and time at the piano. It was way too hot for bike riding, however!

Aimee, thanks for those postings yesterday. I enjoyed them all. I've been exploring some of my favorite Andean music and have found some new things by Rumillajta. Though this Bolivian group disbanded more than 10 years ago, they left behind a tresure trove of wonderful Andean music.

Here they perform "Takiririllasu." Sorry for the abrupt cutoff at the end!

Greetings! It's back to work today after a very pleasant staycation. Here's a little music popular when I was a teen. Down memory lane with "It's the Same Old Song" by The Four Tops.
