A cutecomer [otherwise known as "costumer"]
just called me relating to this conversation
which he was only too eager to read, less
eager to comment or post himself.....
To burst the bubble, he said: Jerry Lee Lewis
would've socked it to both of'em!!!
What kind of death penalty would this high
audience recommend in this case? I couldn't!
Remember: he is a "cutecomer" !

Well, it seems like a good time to join in.
I have just heard for the first time (forgive the spelling; but the CD is in the car) the Georges Czuiff....?? recording for the Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies. They sure are not lacking in excitement! \:\) I've heard him mentioned many times here. His other playing, and I've not heard much, is VERY erratic, even strange.

I visited Charleston, SC last week. I went to a music store there; and playing 2 new Yamahas....both 9-footers. One was out of tune, and not fun to play. The other had just gotten tuned, and playing almost effortlessly. But talk about being bright! Yikes! I'm sure it has been a full 10 yrs since I played the larger models. The action on both were good, and very even. But I just couldn't get past the brightness. How much of this can a tech change??? They were not priced; and I could just kick myself for not asking. The Steinway L, in the same room, sure sounded different in comparison.

BTW, if you're ever in Charleston, visit Millennium Music in Mt. Pleasant. It's a CD store with a great selection.

Mushy, MUSHY! I meant they're human beings (i.e. fallible) and I love them both (as composers!). Guess that could have been put better \:D

But why would appreciation of them be mutually exclusive? And why this visceral loathing of Liszt? You go after him like he was some kind of Nazi!

Dan the "Consolations" are very nice and not too difficult. Also some of the late pieces are hauntingly beautiful and not technically difficult.

A huge field, two spots in the center of the screen. The camera is panning to show the desert state of the place.
Camera is zooming in fast.
The spots where Pianos, two of them. Chopin is on the right while Liszt(Sorry i'm french : ) is on the left. The pianos are in poor shape. All cover with muds, wooden pieces have explosed. The musical fight has been bloody. Liszt is beeing amputated of his left arm by a doctor. He said "sorry Lil, can't save it !! You'll have to keep your jaws tight while I'll axe it off".
But Lil is coarse, and strong.
Chopin, the vilain, thinks of using this interlude to send in his final vilain attack the allegro of the Prelude In C Sharp Minor, Op.45. And sharp it is i'm telling you. Everyone knows not to stay in the battlefield but our friend lil does not fear any frog eater. So he opens up his umbrella and prepare to offers his counter attack ..........................................................................................................
We now know that liszt is in very bad shape, Chopin who is just tired and vile has the advantage. What will happen ??? Will Lyl able to survive the Prelude after the Interlude?? Chopin Knows the figth is not over and will his Prelude after the interlude work although his Grand Piano has no more than 5 White keys still working !!!!

See us in the next improbable episode of
Lil vs ChopChop.

Oh by the way bruce. I like Humor(which might not be exactly shown in the above ; ), because it brings life and emulation in a forum.

Brendan, both Hillary and I felt your pain as soon as we saw the announcment. I took the liberty of sending said announcement directly to Jaw Leno's Tonite Show Headlines address and hope that the larger audience seeing it there will be reminded to pay more respect to our bridges to the past.
Reminded me of my boyhood in Hope, where among my Saturday chores, visiting the woodshed to finish the chopin was high on the liszt.
