Hi!

I've been always fascinated by old recordings, especially with those made with piano rolls. This technique doesn’t mean strictly a recording, but at least we can get an idea about how some composers played their own works. Listening to piano rolls is like a time travel.


Here we can listen to a piano roll recorded by Granados on his Spanish Dance No 2.

I'm just drafting a response to the UK government consultation on the 2010 drug strategy, and the Losing My Edge (spoken word, Gil Scott Heron stylee)) and the drugs thing caused me to remember this, Noah's Toilet by Coldcut, which has some pretty funny lyrics:



"He's a member,
Wearing nothing but a peanut in the middle of December"

etc.

Becca, I've obtained music from "the artist/the composer" by dropping a quick line on twitter too. Especially productive when there is no commercial availability.

And then Noah's Toilet reminded me of Music 4 No Musicians, on the same album (which I haven't played in years). A reference to Steve Reich perhaps?



Thanks goodness almost all the music is now on the shelves!

Wow, one of my favourite Spanish pieces. I'd always listened to Alicia de Larrocha's interpretation, since childhood. And she's fabulous. But I never realised there were any actual Granados recordings. This is I suppose what we are missing with many composers: the composer's interpretation of his/her own piece, how to turn the inevitably simplified symbolism of the sheet into the living experience.

I love the mechanics involved in the piano roll, I will hazard a guess That Recaredo finds the mechanics fascinating too, he loves seeing how things work!!!

Exact-a-ment, Rossy. I do encourage *everyone* with an interest to file a response, as only hearing from peeps will we have a hope of anyone listening. The good thing is that many more pseudo-official peeps - eg Transform - and famous peeps - Mr Branson and his international committee - are now on the same side. Make your voice heard!

Spain Village Wins $950M Lottery - $130,000 Prize to All in Town (Except One Resident)
By Marty Cox
Feb 3, 2012

An entire Spain village is celebrating a lottery win, with the exception of one man who did not enter with the rest of the town residents.

The village of farmers and construction workers is now enjoying a minimum payout of $130,000 per resident except for Costis Mitsotakis, a Greek filmmaker "who moved to the village for a woman," a report has revealed.

The way the village enters the lottery is though a group pool and somehow Mitsotakis was overlooked.

He appears to hold no ill will.

The Lottery Post reveals:

"Mr. Mitsotakis said it would have been nice to win. But he has benefited nonetheless. He had been trying to sell some land without much success. The day after the lottery a neighbor called to say he would buy it. The next day another neighbor called. But Mr. Mitsotakis refused to get into a bidding war."

"This is a small village," he said. "You don't want bad feelings."

More details.

The report explains what a major event the drawing is in the European country.

The lottery, first established in 1812, is a huge event in Spain. Many people take the morning off to watch the televised coverage of the numbers being drawn from a gilded spinning cage. Spain's lottery works differently from those in the United States. This year there were 1,800 first-prize-winning tickets with the same number, 58268, each paying $520,000. As the tickets cost $26 each, they are often broken down into $6.50 "participations.'"

Spain's national lottery, known as "El Gordo."

My wife plays that lottery every year, called “Christmas lottery”, but she always wins nothing.


Well, I think this year she got 120 euros. This changed our lives.

Coming back to old recordings, this is the oldest one that I know about musicians. Here we can listen to Brahms speaking and playing the piano!

Obviously the sound quality is poor, but I find this recording very interesting.

Yes. He is saying he's not sure whom he'd like to meet first- Professor Stephen Hawkings or Rossy, it's a toss-up !
Also, he wishes You Tube and copy-righted material existed when he lived as his descendants would now be ridiculously rich.

Hey, Rossy, David Attenborough asked for a piano this week on DID! He mentioned he might be able to chop it up to make a boat. And his favourite turned out to be Goldberg No. 3. Kirsty allowed him to take all the Goldbergs as a special concession.

DUDES AND DUDETTES.... ALERT. ALERT: we will be posting Griffins Desert Island Discs Tommorrow, thats SUNDAY ...

SUNDAY at 5.PM LONDON time!!!

This promises to be extremely informative, some great musical choices ( as you may suspect) and very entertaining...

And also, there will be a "Surpise" without giving the surprise away, I will just say "Happenstance" crept in , in a big way.

Kudos to Griffin for agreeing to be the first "castaway"

I'm looking forward to it Rossy and Griffin!

Good morning everyone. smile My pick for today is the Gryphon Trio! James (Jamie) Parker is coming here in April, and my boyfriend graciously said he would accompany me to go and see him! It'll be my first live performance. (It's Jamie Parker only not the Trio.)

OMG, we've got snow in London. Quite a bit but not too much.

Here's some Saturday night music, I Talk to the Wind by King Crimson. What a pity there's no footage of Greg Lake singing... but then this is 1969!

Some friends in London just posted pictures of the snow from their window, its pretty. I'm actually a bit jealous because here near Cleveland, where it should be snowing, we've got nothing. In early January we got one bunch of snow good enough to take the kids sledding in and since then there has just been a few bits here and there that don't stick around. Its convenient to not be shovelling and to run out to put trash in the big bin without putting your coat on first but it feels so...unnatural. Plus, I work for a school so if we don't get at least one "snow day" I will feel cheated.
