It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
Welcome back, Becca! The bike looks great. I know you're excited!
I had the weirdest dream last night. I wish I remembered the details. It was something about me about to go into English jail for something dumb. But Rossy apparently spoke to the queen and I was let go,and it was some sort of national event.
I watched Rum Diaries before going to bed,so that accounted for the jail part, but I have no idea where the rest came from.
Hey everybody, wherever you might be... I heard this today. Never heard of her, but I really liked it. Apparently Ray Davies wrote it originally; Cher, Chrissie Hynde, and a couple of others recorded it. Will have to look up Chrissie's.
This chick's got a great voice. Will have to see what else she's done.
Timmy, that was an interesting piece of music; I wonder how the bird singing was made, sounds musical and realistic at the same time.
As far as I know Ronnie Ronalde just has a gift for imitating bird song. I first got to know this recording when it was featured in the BBC series "The Singing Detective". I was browsing through my mother's sheet music the other day and found Ketelbey's own piano arrangement which is worth checking out.It's out of copyright and is available online.

Greetings everyone! It's really great to see RST back to its flow I don't get much time or chance to post here often but I try to at least check regularly what's happening in RST. A big thanks and salute to Recaredo, AimeeO and freshers who, in spite of the pressure of their daily works, find time to keep RST alive! Seriously guys, kudos to you all!
I randomly listened to some of the music posted in this page and got really interested. For example, Ronnie Ronalde is one of most amazing artists I've been introduced so far! Thanks a lot Timmy I searched for a while to find more about him and found this website containing a big collection of his other recordings (all are freely available in mp3): http://archive.org/details/RonnieRonalde-01-88
I also loved the Victor Borge Recaredo, thanks Looks like I've to collect more of his videos too
AimeeO, I got familiar with Sia through this song:
She has an "interesting" voice indeed. But to me, sometimes she distorts her voice too much.
I'm quite excited today to find about Josef Hofmann who is often considered to be one of the greatest virtuoso pianists of 20th century. Here is one example of his majestic performance of Chopin's Berceuse Op. 57:
Wow timmy! I thought the whistle was someone's voice at first.
I like the Nina, Valencia!
Rupak, I agree with you on Sia. I liked the first thing I heard, but she does seem to wander off a bit. She reminds me of Tori Amos - she started doing the same thing.
Oh I think Recaredo has a crush! She does have an awesome voice, so you are justified. I wish I could be around more to keep up with posting with you, since Wayne and Rossy are treating us like red-headed stepchildren , and griffin's off being retired and everything.
This awful semester of classes will be done August 8. Can. Not. Wait. Nothing makes you want to play more piano than not having time!
I've always loved this soundtrack. Here's the Cincinnati Pops doing the Hymn to Red October.
I guess I should look up what they're singing about.
