Nah, I've always seen OSK as male and very attractive to young ladies. He will be the most loving dad.

But... if I may be so bold... I've never encountered in person -or in cyberspace- any female who likes Alkan, at least the solo piano works. If I am not mistaken, none of the comments re Alkan on a recent thread were from females here.

And what female has recorded Alkan?


Stephanie McCallum. (Different spelling than my last name, by the way.) Etudes Op. 35 and Op. 39, some Chants, and maybe other works.

I know girls that like Alkan, but it's more just like they've heard of him, they've heard some of his pieces, and they think it's kind of cool.

Do you think both of us could convince dolce sfogato to post it here on Piano World? wink It would be nice to have someone in addition to Hamelin (who does it beautifully and masterfully, of course). Mr. sfogato knows the Trois Morceaux, as well as a slew of other Alkan pieces (as well as a slew of other pieces in general. His repertoire is so large). I Skyped with him today, and like every other time, I begged him to post recordings of his playing (heck, ANYTHING, not just Alkan). Since he's been giving SO many concerts this summer, hopefully SOMETHING turns up! smile

What, I do the right hand and you do the left? smile

I actually learned a better fingering for chromatic scales today, maybe I could do Le Vent... NAH I'll do Morte! Seems a bit easier than Le Vent, or at least less technically concentrated. Plus I get to play a bit of Aime-Moi at the end. :P

Le Vent seems like a backwards Chasse-neige to me, chromatic scales then tremolos. Thankfully no octave jumps.

Morte is so cool!!! Though it takes Beethoven-esque technical figures to the extreme..

Thought you might like to know, Orange, that we worked things out. I think we both will have a good laugh when she's here in October.

Maybe you could share the reason you have that feeling. Then maybe your repeated fawning over him will seem less meretricious.


In all of his postings, stores' has proven one thing over and over again - the music is always at the top of his priority list and his respect for the music drives everything he says. (The moderator in me sometimes wishes it didn't make him so tenacious in his arguments, but the musician in me finds himself agreeing with stores 99% of the time.)


Thank you.

That's great. I wish one of my former good friends would be willing to work things out with me, but alas, she cannot deal with her immature problems... Ahh, I shouldn't be using PW as my personal outlet! Sorry.

Wait, the C Major theme in the final movement of Brahms' 1st symphony just came on. I'm in a good mood again. laugh

For the most part I think Argerich, like most of the great players, has gotten better with age.

One of the downfalls of living for a long time is that sooner or later we hear one amazing technical feat after another, and it starts to sound boring.

Yuja Wang does have an incredible technique, but the one thing I listened to tonight be her that I truly enjoyed was this:

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1724194/4.html

It's a version of the Vocalise I have not heard before (so nothing to compare it to), but it seems to me that she is totally in it, and if this is where she is heading in the future, musically, I'll be paying very careful attention. And I think she is going to increasingly show a huge connection to the great Russian composers.

What I will never understand, what continually makes me shake my head in sadness, is the necessity to declare just one human being "king" or "queen" of the piano, as if we are watching for who is going to emerge as number one in golf or tennis. frown

One thing thatreally struck me as unacceptable from MA i just watched on medici tv.

She kind of jokes about cancelling a gig in empoli , de cades ago. She didn t want to play there and faked a cut in his finger (she actually put a blade to it and cut it) to avoid the performance. And then she says that the following week she had a nother gig in Italy and wantedto play that. I don t thnk that s very sensible considering how many people she lets down with her too frequent cancellations
