Goodmorning sirs,

today I would like to share a little recording done at 2 AM o'clock, in a pianobar of my dear piano teacher, M.o Ernesto "Tino "Cazzulani.

He left us in this winter at 87 y.o. , but his remembrance is still alive in me.

".... tired hands full of poetry"

I enjoyed hearing him play....years ago I had the occasion to play a piece during lunch hour in Australia.....I have to tell you I was dumbfounded that everyone was so appreciative that all talking stopped and you could hear a pin drop.....I was so moved I couldn't bring myself to play another piece.....I was hoping the same respect would be shown for your teacher.

eh eh... smile

Thankyou guys.

Rada I don't think so. Our aims (mine and my teacher's) is play and mix up between folks tattles.

Do you kwnow what I'm talking about?

It's not a concert hall but a Dining Room or a conference room and people isn't there for listen you.

M.o Tino worked in Argentina, America Italy and Switzerland for at least years...

Hi foster,

Yes, I know what you are talking about. I have played in many restaurants over the years and the piano is not meant to be the focal point......but my hope was that because it was being posted on you-tube the listeners would have been more focused on the experienced pianist. In any case, I enjoyed it. With my experience in Australia it made me feel the people, in general, had a high regard for music and for hearing a pianist play live.

ciao,
rada

Hello Rada,

is there the possibility to listen any recording of you?

I like very much Don Ross, of Pianoworks Atlanta too.

Very nice Foster, I especially like your 3rd chorus when you go into tempo. Maybe use less rubato and ritardandos in the first two passes?

Hi Rerun, I begane at 5 smile with civic school Music but I didn't like much piano and after 7 years I stopped to play piano.

At 16 years old after viewing "Legend of 1900" I began again to play piano, but with M.o Tino (that was mi Father's piano teacher).

M.o Tino used to say "often people go to School music for years and years without learning nothing. Contrarily could be enought "guidances" or "advices" (like m.o. Tino love to say) of some hours to learn music "

Have you catch the idea? He studied for years classic music with Maurizio Pollini's teacher... M.O Tino's brother was a piano player at Scala Theater of Milan.

Tino must be a very good teacher, you have some serious technique/talent working in your corner!!

Yep, watching 1900 light a cigarette off a hot piano string during the smackdown got a grin out of me. Wish I hadn't waited 55 years longer than you to get a good start at this discipline.

I hope you'll like it!



Cheers smile

Hey Foster,

That was beautiful in its simplicity. He's welcome to come play that first selection for one of our grand kids anytime, my playing doesn't make him drowsy yet.

He sounds/looks like he's playing by ear rather than memory ... what do you think?

Thanks for throwing it out here ...

Hi Rerun,

He didn't like very much the expression "play by ear".

In his opinion playing music come from heart and soul. Not from ear ( example beethoven smile ).

Yep, I think that better expresses what he is doing too. Is that the method he teaches students from the start or does he first teach sight reading, etc. as a means to get to that level?

Let me give you an example.

Maestro Tino learned Piano with his Father Giuseppe (Order of Merit of the Italian Republic).

While his brother studied Classic music, he dedicated his studies in accordion and vibraphone.

(Maestro Tino met L.Hampton, Oscar Peterson)

Then M. Tino continued his studies whit Maesto Carlo Lonati (the same of Maurizio Pollini, another friend of M. Cazzulani).

His Passions were Chopin etudes, J.B Cramer Etudes, Czerny and Berens.

For introduce to playing piano he written many simplified pieces. For example new-york new york (even with fingering).

Then he taught me to understand what I was playing.

His approach was: what do you want to play? Chopin Etude op10 n.1? Ok

Play it very VERY slowly and tell me every single chord that you are playing...

Thanks for sharing! Stranger in Paradise is a favorite of mine.
It's always a sad day when someone special moves on,
but I'll bet he's making music in a much better place.
