Good morning, all! One from me before I head off to work today.
Too bad, 'cause it's sunny, warm and wonderful out there.
Maybe I do feel a cough coming on, after all.....(clears throat).

looked hot back then, too!)

I performed Rhapsody a few weeks ago at an Open Mic onstage. With the exception of me, the other artists were students who were performing Rap, and Spoken Word. Needless to say, I was not sure how well my 20th Century classical piano would go. It went well, and I got a standing ovation!

Feel free to share any constructive feedback on a thread I am creating elsewhere on ABF. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy it!


I also want to thank you for sharing this. I love hearing new piano music like this. Beautifully played - listening to it a number of times now. It's one of the those pieces that can make a piano really sing.

I haven't ventured into this thread yet. Looks like I have been missing out on some great music. Wow...156 pages....how am i going to get any work done?


Thanks for your kind words about my piano performance. Also, welcome to this thread. Just listen, and enjoy when you have some time. Also feel free to share some of the music you enjoy, are learning about, or whatever. It's a relaxed group of folks here. Rossy should jump in at some point when he's available to give a bit more of the background.

Right now, I'm off to work. Welcome again! Enjoy your day!

Hya dudes and dudettes, well right on cue, here comes Rossy to explain to the most welcome newcomers a little about the thread:

Allthough the thread is entitled RST ( Rostoskys serious thread) it is, in effect,about as far removed from "serious" as its possible to get away with, except for when we are discussing a serious issue, in which case it is usually announced in a post that seriousness is required, so usually at all other times, seriousness is actively discouraged.

Early on in the thread ( around page three or something like that that no one can exactly remember, or even wants to much (what with being busy with "other stuf") the thread "Morphed" into what it is today, which is...:::


A place where folk can feel free and relaxed to hang out and share as much diversity of music, musicall styles, and different genres of music that they wish to, possibly with the hope that another member may enjoy hearing something new to themselves, and indeed maybe learn from.


We do not argue, we do not b i t c h , we do not ctiticise each other, and we are a very very friendly group, and take care of each other. We are interested in each others trials and tribulations in the big field of musical learning, but more importantly,also in our daily lives.

We feel and support each other through hopefully occassional illness or lifes dissapointments, and miss each other when work or domestic demands make posting scarce..

We are also not sure where Wayne33yrs is, so please dont ask, unless you are a private detective that is helping to find him and possibly the lady ga ga lookalike that may have abducted him.

BeccaBb has got a sore bottom, with some bits missing so no teasing her till around 8.30 pm on the 22nd April ..
I believe her sphincter lost some of its elasticity and she has had it re-tightened with rubber band implants from walmart, because of the dire poverty that everyone in canada lives in.

One thing of utmost importance is to not try and correct any ones grammer or punctuation, as some of us are still on big blue book three in the english department.

And thats about it, except, dont mention german ebayers to eglantine as it brings back stressfull non successfull harpsichord purchasing issues.

you may post pictures of your favourite halibut.

Usually allthough we like the idea of a "healthy diet" it is best kept as an idea , and not put into daily life practice, personally I like chips cooked in lard and eat pies and believe bacon to be life affirming.

Thank you, Eglantine, for the Gram Parsons. It' a huge improvement on our Keith and I do appreciate the effort but I must confess I still prefer Mick's version.

BeccaBb, how do you do! If I understand correctly from Rossy your post contains something of a paradox ('LMAO') or at least a sense of danger. Perhaps Rossy has it, er, a*** about face!

I understand D**** D**** are not posted here without some form of retribution. I'll have to go back and check.

Bacon is good if the animal is pasture reared and hasn't been pumped full of water, nitrates and nitrites. Lard is healthy, of course, as it's saturated fat and won't turn rancid under high heat. It was all very healthy when I was a boy until the government decided in the early eighties that two and a half million years of evolution was wrong and low fat diets became all the rage (along with a huge increase in obesity and degenerative diseases).
<gets off hobby horse>

In the lull between the two giants of the high baroque, Bach and Handel, and the two giants of high classicism, Haydn and Mozart, the Mannheim school gave a new voice to wind instruments (this is not another reference to BeccaBb) and new orchestral dynamics. The Mannheim rocket is a sudden orchestral crescendo. Here, one of the leading lights, Carl Stamitz, shows the sort of thing that was to impress Mozart on his early visit.

Hya there dudes and dudettes, Rostosky is pleased to welcome to piano world and in particular RST a good friend of mine who is currently studying for her grade eight..

I just know you guys will make her very welcome and at home, I have given her an RST badge allready for helping me in a practical way with piano study!! ( yes in "real" life!)

Her username is "Dipsy" and before you ask, yes she is quite dipsy and should fit in here just perfectly because of it!

What say you all?


Richard, as you are a regular and avid poster here now, would you like a RST badge too?

Piano Joy, that brings back some great memories - when it was released back at school, but more recently, when my daughter was born.

Driving back to the hospital the day after. Sun was shining, feeling great, car radio was blasting GnR, and those lyrics....

She's got a smile it seems to me reminds me of childhood memories where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky

Yeah...5 years on, it still gives me goosebummps thinking about it.

So where is our dipsical friend? Has she had a change of heart? Has she had an accident pinning on her badge?

Rossy, it would be an honour to wear the RST badge!

Recaredo, glad to have enlightened you. History has glossed over so much of interest. I just did it myself when I introduced the Mannheim school by announcing them as a lull between the giants.

There was no lull at the time of course. There was the development away from Bach's polyphony towards a more homophonic style, (Bach was already well past his sell-by date in his own lifetime - is it not strange?), the Galant style was gaining ground with Stamitz, the empfindsamkeit with CPE Bach and the Sturm und Drang movement was underway with Haydn himself, probably the first true Romantic. There were other styles afoot, too, but they all became wrapped up in this wizard thing called the sonata principle that dominated pretty much everything but the concerto. But that's for another day!

We just seem to have a penchant for what we think is best and it seriously devalues everything else.

So, here's something more contemporary but not the best of the girl groups doing not the best of a song that isn't their best.

The Roches are accompanied by a certain Robert Fripp doing what he does best on his Les Paul Custom. And if the Les Paul Custom isn't the best guitar, I don't know what is. I've been playing one since 1975.

Raining and windy here. I'm down with an early stage bug today, and my plumber's about to show up... groan....

CaptainKawai's ""I call my woman hinges cause she's something to adore" is a pretty nifty title that I'd never come across before.

Some of my favourites titles over time have been:

"Music For A Tong Funeral" (album, Carla Bley). I mean, who the heck are the Tong... Do they even exist?

"Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass" (electro-pop). An interesting juxtaposition. A lot of the original electro music - early 80s Bronx - was very much inspired by ideas around 'space' and the future. I'm sure if the invaders landed in the Bronx, they probably would hang out around one of the early electro sound systems and smoke some grass.

Hello everyone - its great to feel part of such a nice bunch of people!

Rossy suggested I post some music I like - so I've chosen the Shostakovich because I go all gooey when its playing. I've had a stab at playing it and hope to be able to do it justice some day.

You're most heartily welcome Dipsy!

I've just come across this beautiful piece by Pink Floyd and its wonderful execution by a talented pianist:

Rupak, Thanks for posting that, I do have a comment ( or three) and hope you understand what I mean.

First off I have been a lifelong fan of floyd, from long before they were even popular, in fact when I first got into Pink floyd everyone called me weird, as in those days floyd had only a cult following.
So, I am very very familiar with their music and all its nuances.

I would also like to say I am a big fan of VK, I think she is wonderfull and puts her heart and soul into everything, I have a lot of respect and admiration for her.

On the whole she does a good job with this particular floyd piece which is never going to translate too well into a solo piano piece.

The only bone of contention I have, is her intepretation of the vocal line within the song, she is adding extra feeling of a type that does not fit to well with what this great song normally expresses in the vocal line.

All the rest is excellent..its just that vocal line isnt sitting to well with me, probably personal preference for what the original expressed?

Good morning everyone!

Awesome tunes to wake up to! Welcome Dipsy and great song! I see why it makes you gooey!

Rupak, I would have never imgained Floyd as a solo on piano! That was very neat. (Huge Floyd fan also) I do agree with Rossy though that it feels off. I would have never know why that was though! laugh

I'll leave you all with a little U2..

Thanks Rossy. Yes, VK really has extraordinary talent! I just came to know about her while searching for moonlight sonata. I'm absolutely amazed by her capability of playing different genres of music equally well!
It's a shame for me to confess that I've hardly listened to Floyd's works though I'm well acquainted with its popularity. Rossy, can you please suggest me some best works by Floyd?

Good day, folks, and welcome, Dipsy. What a lovely introduction to the day the Shostakovich made!

How elegant Vika looks in her delicate and filigree footwear!

Rupak, the guitar solo on Time is to die for!



I just saw Laurie commenting on Peter Gabriel's 'So' in the Classic Albums series so I thought I'd post something from her to rekindle the memory.

Which one is Pink?

The first time I saw PF was when they opened for The Guess Who ... circa 1970 in Atlanta Georgia ... the auditorium was packed for the concert ... after PF played most folk left ... I felt kinda bad for The Guess Who because there was only one row of listeners who stayed to hear them ... the people who stayed were enthusiastic and the band put on their show with a lot of energy ...

Good morning everyone! Welcome to Dipsy and VegasE! Becca, it's so nice to see you back. You were missed! Fabulous postings everyone! I only have time for one posting. I've been missing the sweet sounds of Sweet Honey in the Rock. The all female a cappella vocal ensemble is highly acclaimed for their performances of African American spirituals, folk music, and social protest music. Here is "Sylvie."



Off to work I go! Enjoy the rest of your day!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

Looking forward to listening to Sweet Honey in the Rock and Shostakovich today.

We have been gripped here in Aussie-land by Prince fever (at least i have smile ) as a number of shows have just gone on sale for next month. I would like to share a live version of one of his classics. Prince is an amazing artist and performer and has breathed new life into this classic. WHat makes this special is the crowd interation with Prince's performance - expecially at the end of the piece. Enjoy it while you can, as this sort of Prince thing doesnt last very long on the web.

This was recorded live at the Montreaux Jazz festival a few years back. I only found this vid recently. It's interesting to hear a proper recording as i have only heard a boot of this performance and you do not get the overall sense of the crowd interaction and participation from this recording. Of course, his performance is much clearer on this.

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xa1jip_prince-montreux-2009-little-red-cor_music

Appologies it's not youtube embedded vid.

That was a good video of Little Red Corvette ... the slower tempo sounded so mellow ... here's one of my favorite guitar solos by Prince ... it starts at 3:30 ... I remember watching this when it aired ... a friend who was not familiar with Prince was flabbergasted by his mastery of the guitar

KeysAngler, it's a shame that Prince's guitar skills aren't better known. You have to see him in concert. When I first saw him at Wembley I was amazed and yet there's so little on his recordings to suggest it. It's as if he's a songwriter one day and a guitarist another and never the twain shall meet.

Is it indicative of a contempt for his own ability that he casts away a gorgeous butterscotch tele at the end of this?

PPP, what was the point of this video? I'm sorry I didn't have time to read the commentary. smile

Was it intended as a Lady Gaga song or a showcase for the drummer? If it was the former I'll pass it by. There's no accounting for taste and I refuse to criticise you for that. I enjoy my own fair share of musical garbage.

Edit: Note the crafty way I dismiss Lady Gaga as garbage! smile

But, if it was the latter, I suggest you check out some 'real' drummers and then take a second look at this post. Here's a chance, perhaps, for you to increase you appreciation. The guy 'hits' the drums when they need to be 'struck', it's very difficult to put into words. There's no finesse, no control over the quality of the attack at the end of the sticks. His paradiddles aren't sharp and his timing is a little off at the end of his cadences. He's more like a whacker than a drummer. Possibly well suited to the music he's targetting but not really for isolated solos.

The piano is also a percussion instrument but compare Horowitz to the latest six year old Beethoven-wannabe bashing out Bach on YouTube. There's a quality of touch. Dean Minerva is missing a quality of touch.

Check this out and see if you can see (or rather, hear) the difference. Listen to the articulation in the paradiddles (try around 2:19 - 2:21, for example) where every single strike has a different quality and accents the beat. Peter Jablonski is not a formally trained drummer, at least I very much doubt it - and I can usually tell - and he doesn't have that much experience in this video (in terms of years) but he is (now) a gifted musician (concert pianist studying conducting).

If you can't tell the difference in a couple of listens, and you're still interested, I'll try and find another example, otherwise, please excuse an old man's unnecessary interference; it was well intended if not well met. smile

Good morning everyone! I won't have time for posting or much listening today. I'm having to manage my time very carefully. In addition to the busy workload, I have to make sure I give plenty of time to piano work. I've been asked to play two selections at a neighborhood event next week at the theater.

And just to keep life even more interesting, I have a cough that is damned annoying. cursing Okay, now that I've had the opportunity to whine a little I think I can get through this by carefully pacing myself.

BTW, loved the discussion about Prince. He is from Minneapolis, which is where he launched his career. I also work at the theater where he was discovered by some talent agents. I have some interesting stories to share about the theater and Prince. It will have to wait until later, however. Off to work I go. Have a great day everyone!
