torquenale - Wow, very good and thanks! Now we know that you are a great photographer too. thumb

AimeeO - Thanks, AimeeO! Maybe you can join us in the next EPP2015; I'm sure sooner or later, the next party will have a special thread in PW forum.

UKIkarus - Yes. I have some videos, but I've to do a selection and some editing working before posting them... Do you know any free and easy to use video-editing software?

Fantastic! Place no 39 of 2229! I'm truely amazed what they can make in that tiny little kitchen.

After the trip to Lissabon, I realised that my iD card was expired in februari. Nobody said anything. Guess I was lucky. Next time I should check my things a little better. whistle

I saw on the internet that if I would rent a room for a month from an house living by a family and if I would buy the cheapiest airplane ticket, the costs would be as expensive as my two days trip. cry

I do agree with PatH that the first week of july is a good week to schedule the party. I already look forward to the next party.

Remembering a question from patH, the first quattre mains I played with casinitaly was China Fireworks by Lee Evans from: China, Suite for Piano. It should be played at a much higher tempo than we did though.

The videos are great... it's a taste of being there.

Carlos--is Joana a relative? Very sensitive touch at the piano like yours.

Yes, she's my daughter.
She learned to play just seeing me; she never had lessons and she doesn't like being corrected by me... She is a very determined person in everything she does.
Thank you.

Well, I've never recorded anything I've ever done.... mainly through lack of confidence heh.

But I'm there now on multiple videos (eek!) so I guess it won't hurt if I should start recording my progress smile

wimpiano- Yes I had already noticed that... I think we have to wait sometime to see a piano instead of a horse - continents are moving, right? smile

That's why I love my teachers lessons so much. She has such a fine grand. There's no feeling better than feeling a key resonating after key press relaxing the finger. The sound is so full, same with violins and cello's.

PaperClip, nothing like a real piano to fell all the power of the sound. Unfortunately, I don't have regular access to a grand piano, unless I go play in a hotel, which I do from time to time.

Thanks earlofmar, it was a great party, yes. thumb

Hi Carlos,

Thanks for uploading the videos! smile

Information for all interested: The piece I am playing in my first two videos is the "Impromptu op.1/2" by P.I.Tchaikovsky, in the 3rd video it is "Un petit train de plaisir" by G.Rossini.

Any news on future EPP's? I know it was discussed a few times while we were out and about... would just like to query it as the sooner we have any info the sooner I (and any others interested) can confirm whether or not they can turn up to any potential future events smile
