Polyphasicpianist... lol well, I hope everyone took "note" of PPP's posting.

Microsoft seems to have re-invented the Bontempi organ that actually went out of fashion in the seventies on the same day as it didnt come into fashion.

This is really hideous considering what is allready on the market for kids and adults in terms of music programs.

If microsoft intended it for "young christians" / no sex before marriage/ apple pie/ the alcohol free brandy drinkers group , the deaf, mentally impaired, or the musically lame...

They nailed it.

Havent they heard of pro tools, Reason, Abelton?

Obviously not..

Thanks, for clarifying this Rossy! I was just about to leave for work when I saw your post. Frankly I was quite confused and thought it was some kind of joke, and I was (still?) feeling clueless because I didn't understand the joke.

Now I understand. It's Microsoft who is clueless! laugh

When I listened to the nocturne No 10 by John Field for the first time, I fell in love with it. I thought I could give it a try on the piano, but when I saw the sheet music, I realized that my level is clearly below this piece. It’s a pity, but this music is not as easy as it looks.

In any case, it’s a wonderful nocturne, and at least, I can enjoy listening to it.

I hope you also enjoy it.

I like that a lot, Recaredo.
I have a piece by Field I want to play but there is a run of thirds and my hands don't like to do that (yet!).
It's Nocturne 5.


Hah when I was looking it up I saw there was a Nocturne 5 with Gaga's Bad Romance.. I would post it for Wayne but it's not good, and not in a fun way.

Aimee, the nocturne No 5 is a beauty too! I’m sure your hands will like to play it soon.


Richard, loved the Schumann, very expressive performance by Lang Lang.

Thanks Wayne for posting the other metamorphosis pieces in the series - they seem just as haunting and I think our neighbours will be subjected to the sound of attempts to play this music for a considerable time yet as we work through these pieces. Having said that with M no 2, it always seems to slow/grind to a halt in the same tricky spot each time and some disciplined and methodical practice is called for.

Aimee and Recaredo - as you both like the Field Nocturnes a lot, maybe its worth trying to learn them even if they do seem too difficult in places.

Richard, I liked the Lang Lang, too. It surprised me. Too often when I click on a Lang Lang video on YouTube, he's doing too much visually and I can't pay attention to it! So I was pleasantly surprised to hear such a calm, pretty piece.

Dipsy, oh, I try! I can get through the first part well enough, but that running part (not thirds! sorry I realized my error when I just fooled around with it a few minutes ago!) is a bear. I actually asked my teacher if we could start that a month a go, and she wants to wait on it. She has given me plenty of other work that works my hands, so hopefully I will build to it soon.

I was thinking of buying this music anthology of American composers from Amazon yesterday, so I decided to YouTube some of the pieces. (I have a horrible addiction to acquiring music I can't play.) Lots of good stuff, but I am nowhere near worthy.

I'm glad the Lang Lang was liked. I do understand the remarks about his penchant for telling the whole story and some with his facial expressions and histrionic head movement.

AimeeO, the 12th Street Rag takes me back to childhood listening to my Dad filling the house with this and similar when we first got our piano. Love it! I think I'll start adding a few rags to my repertoire smile

Here's a delightful little piece with a famous ending. I just love the little three note motif that comes in at 3:17. What I wouldn't give to be able to conjure up so much with so little! And the gorgeous melody at 6:10 that evokes the Swiss contryside...Bliss!

Dipsy, I'm also working through all 5, in for a penny, in for a pound wink

AimeeO, I will look the "Nocturne 5 with Gaga's Bad Romance" up when my home internet is back on, it's been down for a few days, my ISP is blaming all this rain we've been having lately (continuous since April). An engineer is comming out tomorow, so fingers crossed. I've had to pinch 5mins at work to post, see you all soon. smile

Hi!

I just wanted to post this beautiful ballad, from the “Concertino” for guitar and orchestra by Salvador Bacarisse.

There are many versions on Youtube of this piece, but I’ve chosen this one because of it shows paintings by Julio Romero de Torres (an interesting painter from Córdoba), and images of the Alhambra (Granada).

I saw that reference in another thread too. I didn't know what they were referring to. Perhaps Rossy can clue us in.

In the meantime, back to newsletter editing for me! That's what has been keeping me busy.

Hiya Boys and Girls!

smile I'm not dead honestly! It's been crazy around here. My boyfreind moved in, we moved his daughter into her own place, I started a new job (I was working 14 hour days between both jobs for a bit) and now I'm just getting settled into a routine.

I haven't been playing. My house is just a disaster from the move. My acoustic piano bit the dust and I refuse to put any more money into it! So I just put a Roland rd300nx on layaway! I should have it payed off and home by end of september! WOOT!

Hows life in the Rossy thread? How you all been? I missed you guys!

Becca (still stinky and kicking)

I'm really glad you're working up to this Aimee. When I play music, I often don't work on it to iron out any little problems, since I'm already enjoying playing it. (particularly true of the metamorphosis series)
However, I do recognise that with some focussed practice, I would not only be able to play that piece through with more satisfaction and accuracy, but also improve my technique for the future perhaps.

Hi Becca,
How good to hear from you. I had wondered what became of you. You've had a lot of stuff happening. I don't blame you for the decision to go to the DP. You are wiser than me, however. I waited way too many years before I replaced my acoustic piano -- 35 years!!! LOL!

Right now, I'm buried in work putting out a newsletter. I just had to take a break to say hi to you and everyone else! Back to my work.

Greetings everyone! My time is extremely limited today, and this is the first time today I've been able to take a break and do some classical music postings. My first selection is the "Concerto for Oboe in A minor" by Antonio Vivaldi.

I really enjoyed listening to this performance by Julian Lloyd Webber who plays "Elegy" by Gabriel Fauré with Peter Pettinger at the piano.

Wayne - so we're not the only ones who are grappling with issues (like timing) in this piece then! At least now that I know Metamorphosis one and five are the same, its now 'three down, two to have a go at'!

Its still raining, and now I am getting very very bored of just rain.

( Its not strictly speaking "Just" rain, its actually unjust rain as its rained now almost every day non stop since april.)

I dont like rain, in fact this is one reason why I never watched the film " rain man", as I presumed it was abought a guy who either got rained on a lot OR someone who could make it rain on others at will say, which would be a very bad thing indeed. I would not like someone who was as vertically chalenged as dustin hoffman to have that sort of potential watersport power over the rest of us.

"And rightly so" I hear you all cry, dwarves having the power to hose us down at random, whatever next?

Well as it happens, what is actually next is much more rain, did I mention I hate Wales UK, because of the sheeer quantity of different types of rain that it has every day for months and months and forever and ever, continuously and without a break?

I feel your pain Rossy! We flooded because we got a record dump for the entire month in one day. Now.. boiling boiling hot for two weeks. Everytime it rains, it just makes it hotter (which is about twice a day.) Global warming bites frog toes. frown GRRRRR
