So few pianists are also archaeologists. Coincidence?

I was wondering when you'd show up.

Archeology is a field of study and a career path that takes time and devotion to pursue. Your insinuation that this is somehow analogous to sexuality is moronic.

Scrabbling in the dirt is hard enough on the hands and fingers, without subjecting them to the further trauma of playing a piano, or indeed, any musical instrument that uses the hands.

And getting to grips with people who lived 200 years must seem boring when you're already doing the same with people who lived 20000 years ago.... wink

Wouldn't the exercise of one endeavor supplement the physical needs of the other? I think the two would be an unbeatable combination, and yet I can find no examples....yet.

I wanted to be an archeologist but I'm not.
I wanted to be a pianist but I'm not.
I was not born in the Ukraine.
Is there a correlation there? Can we get a grant to study it? wink

Mountaineering and long distance runner! This is a busy guy. Mountain climbing is kind of rough on the fingers too.

Okay, but only 1 alive.

It's a heck of a list though, isn't it? Good piano blood in the Ukraine.
