NYC May 15th Party - Pictures - 05/16/05 05:08 AM

We had a good turn out and everyone seemed to have a good time. Fortunately, there was always someone playing the piano which prevented Grotriman from taking apart my action right there! ;\)

CJQ played some great Scriabin, he really nailed it.

Bernard played some wonderful Brahms and one of my favorite Rachmaninoff preludes.

Rachel-the-miraculous-piano-teacher played Chopin's F-minor ballade, a Chopin Prelude, and after some prodding, the 3rd movement of the moonlight sonata. She has some amazing chops. No one wanted to play after her!

Fingers played some great Jazz, but once again was shown up by his son Ben, who was everyone's favorite! ;\)

LJC impressed us all with some Jazz pieces, and as if that wasn't enough he literally pulled something out of his back pocket to sight read. I can't wait to play his Hamburg D, by the way. Its worth the trip out to Lon-Gisland.

I talked Grotriman into playing Jeax d'eau, which he plays so well. I will learn that some day soon. He also did some pieces from Tombeau de Couperin, a great Scarlatti sonata and some interesting Poulenc. The man has so much right on his fingertips, ready to play.

Jeff did a couple of Bach pieces. He's the most recent starter in the group, but you can tell he's worked hard at it. He really sounded good.

Bootsy played 10m or so of the Liszt Sonata. Fantastic! He also read through some Debussy, Schubert, and LvB Op 109 1st movement. I wish I could read (and play) like him!

Realplayer came late so many attendees missed him. He had just returned from a performance he had uptown. He played about 8-9m of a piece by Michael Sahl that was just phenomenal. Its a really great piece of music and Joe's playing is off the charts. He's recording the piece in June, I implore everyone to by the CD.

La Pianista played some Beethoven but I missed it! I think I was up on the roof servicing my nicotine habit. Darn!

Finally, rachel-nyc was a fantastic hostess, and very politely handled everyone's questioning as to why she doesn't play the piano!

Here are some photos. By the way, the best image of all was Ben playing, Grotriman took that and promised to post it. Make sure you come back and see it.

I played Ravel's Sonatine, all three movements.

I didn't get a picture of me (its not like I'm CJQ or anything ;\) ). Grotriman took some photos, maybe I'll turn up in one of them.

Reposting here before I knew any better....
-------------------------------------------

What a beautiful piano too! This Bosie makes all other pianos look like they came out of a high school woodshop.

Sigh.

The Bosie had a very luscious sound but much more polite than the Grotrian. I can only wonder what my piano would sound like with that much space to play it in.

Great party Jon! Thanks for inviting all of us. What Jon didn't say is he's almost nailed the third movement of the Ravel Sonata in the month since the last party... awesome.

We also got to meet Christopher Quinn, who contrary to rumors at PW is really a nice guy.

I have some pix of Fingers and his son doing an improv together, I'll try to post tonight.

One thing for sure - After seeing the accessories that came with Jon's Bosie, I want to accessorize too. I want those cool brass cups under my casters too.

BTW - interesting finish detail - the Bosie pedal lyre base has enclosed the rear of the pedal mechanism so that you only see the push rods coming out of an elegant wooden base. I was at my kids recital last night where they have this magnificent Steinway B, serial number in the 78K range, and it was constructed that way too back then. I guess they've cheapened it since.

Well - if you had your father in a nursing home for Alzheimer's - you'd be doing as much as you can to keep that grey matter supple too!!!

My plan is to memorize everything I learn (that I like - but I usually give up on pieces I decide I don't like). We'll see.

When I find I can no longer memorize, I'll know its time to walk in front of a high speed piano moving truck.

Great pix! Great piano-- looks like the weather has improved from when it was delivered.

Interesting phrase, declaring the Bosie as more "polite" than your Grotrian. I'd love to hear that piano--the only Bosie I've encountered wasn't exactly genteel. It was a big monster with a bass that practically rattled your fillings. Waaaay cool.

I still don't buy the thing about CJQ being a nice guy, though. ;\)

I had the special and was throwing up all night from food posining.

Jon- I wish I could have been there but I don't think that would have went well with me sick and all.

decibel, pete, sorry we missed you! i hope you're feeling better, db.

thanks everyone for the compliments on the flat. its a fun entertaining space. its very 'live' and the piano does fill the room. grotriman thinks i need some rugs. maybe.

apple - thanks for the photoediting. i should have used the flash!

btw - when grotriman say my piano is more polite, its because when i finished playing his piano in april it turned around and told me i needed more lessons, but my piano holds its tongue \:D

Good pictures jon. I recognized the apartment from the thread you posted about craning the piano through those magnificent windows.

I almost felt like I was there , since, thanks to the videos taken of the moving-day by CJQ-Limited Productions,I am familiar with the surrounding buildings (and some of their soffits ), trees, traffic, and sidewalk and/or curb-and-gutter work of that neighborhood. :p

I had a great time, btw!

Just some kudos to jon and rachel, who were great hosts. A fantastic piano in a fantastic space. The quality of piano playing was very high, and gives me something to work towards.

Any volunteers for the next one? Perhaps in late June??
Posted by: Bernard

Re: NYC May 15th Party - Pictures - 05/16/05 04:27 PM

(Hey, Grotriman, didn't you take a bunch of pictures?)

It was indeed a great party. Thanks jon and rachel. Your home is gorgeous -- I love the huge skylight, and the piano is beautiful -- both touch and tone. Thanks for the wonderful spread, the asparagus and dip was my favorite, and the aged gouda came in a close second.

So nice that the "G" travels almost door-to-door from my place to yours!

Everyone's playing was beautiful. jon-nyc, you've made noticable progress since the last party on the Sonatine--I'd better get to work on that 3rd movement!

There's a special quality that comes through CJQ's Scriabin; I could listen to his Scriabin all afternoon.

I'm totally awed by the amount of material Grotriman has committed to memory. Golly! Very impressive.

Bootsy, your sight-reading skills are unbelievable, not to mention your technical ability. Wow!

It was a special treat to hear Chopin's 4th Ballade performed live by jon's and CJQ's teacher. Very beautiful.

Another great afternoon amongst wonderful people, great food and great music.

Thanks all.

Sorry I had only enough time to say hi to RealPlayer. Maybe next time (especially since he may host!), we'll have more time for visiting.

Jeffrey,
RealPlayer showed some interest in hosting the next get-together. Like I said, if he is not able to make it happen, I'm willing.

Re: NYC May 15th Party - Pictures - 05/16/05 07:41 PM

Hey, Jon and Rachel,

Sorry I could not make the critical-mass part of the party, but it was great fun anyway! Certainly some of the fun-loving people I knew were still around.

Your (and Rachel's) hospitality was awesome, as was your living space. I wish I had your good taste in furnishings.

The Boesendorfer is fabulous, and I only scratched the surface of exploriong it. A rematch is in order! \:D

I really enjoyed hearing Bernard, Jeffey and Bootsy play. You all did great, and it's such a pleasure to hear live playing. I wish I could have heard the rest of you.

Yes, maybe the next one can be at my place. A suggestion that was made by CJQ with, well, some measure of subtlety. :p But seriously, I'd like that. I must check with the rest of the family. I may need some help with refreshments too. Above all, I'd have to arrange it so that I can have a tuning just before. We'll all stay in touch about this.

What can I say that hasn't already been said?

I consider myself most fortunate to be part of PW and the piano parties.

The wonderful music that was played was unequaled... well, then again, that dip was very good.

Truly an inspirational home and piano.(my son wants to move in)

BTW, Ben says your home has good Feng - Shui I hope he's not using that kind of language around school. \:D

jon and rachel- nyc, thank you very much for providing us with a special day.

Re: NYC May 15th Party - Pictures - 05/16/05 09:23 PM

Dear Jon and Rachel,

Thank you so much for hosting this party in your beautiful home. From the food and the booze to the company and the piano (not to mention the setting) -- what an excellent NYC event, attended by so many talented people, getting in line over and over for another turn at the Bosie. And such music was played and heard!

Anyway, just for those who weren't there -- I'd say that a friendlier, nicer, or more fearless group would be hard to imagine. So many terrific pianists, too, some mind-bogglingly fluent amateurs, some very powerful jazz guys, some serious pros, some adult beginners. Yet this was a place where anyone would feel comfortable attempting anything, with or without the assistance of several glasses of wine. In spite of all the talent, there was nothing intimidating about the gathering: good vibes for all, from all, which is truly a beautiful thing.

I heard: jon-nyc himself rock the house with Ravel; Grotriman likewise, with an inexhaustible repertory from memory, great technical fluency, and also some really interesting and exciting pieces (e.g. Poulenc Perpetual Movements); wonderfully expressive Scriabin from CJQ; marvellous Brahms (Intermezzi in E and A) from Bernard, as well as the Rachmaninoff g-minor Prelude -- everything Bernard plays joins my list of favorite pieces, and makes me wish that I played it; thrilling Chopin and Beethoven from Rachel the piano teacher / real concert pianist (an honor to turn her pages, and very exciting to watch her really dig in to the piano, leaving the bench repeatedly -- I absolutely LOVE that); scarily wonderful and truly huge playing from RealPlayer (buy his forthcoming CD of the Sahl everyone); great jazz playing from LJC and from Fingers, each of whom can make an epic from a lead sheet in his sleep; superb playing by Ben, Fingers' son, both improvised and Classical (highly idiomatic, and of course he has learned a lot from his Dad -- I'd hope that my own son might grow up to be like him); much advancement by Jeffrey, a fearless adult beginner, was also in evidence, playing plenty of Bach. I did somehow miss La Pianista's playing, while smoking on the roof with jon-nyc no doubt.

As at Grotriman's event, such a collection of kind, fun people came together to play for one another as to restore ones faith in humanity. Thanks so much to so many new friends (not sure who I may have left out), this really was a blast.

And thanks to all for not mentioning my wretched attempt at WTC I (Bb major), which I think I'll blame on jon's edition.

Thanks again to jon/rachel/everyone else,

Bootsy

He really did make the feng-shui comment.
I had better clean my clutter.

Regarding Ben, Rachel-the-miraculous loved him and his playing. She was dying to be his teacher - and was disappointed to hear you live so far from park slope! Rachel-nyc thought he was fantastic, she said he told her he wants to be a landscape architect when he grows up (who knew what a landscape architect was at 8 years old?!?)

Funny story here... when people arrived, most everyone started with a soft drink not wanting to have wine or beer until after they played. Except Bootsy. He said, 'on the contrary, I won't play until I've had a drink.'

Glad you (and everyone) could make it! I'll host again after a few others have had a turn.

Re: NYC May 15th Party - Pictures - 05/17/05 12:19 AM

What a stupendous place, jon! It makes your Bosie look like a Steinway M. I especially love the bright blue staircase arching up amid all those clean white lines.. Looks like the Guggenheim. Say - what a great place for a gallery. You need a whole bunch of Kandinskis on the walls and some Brancusi and Henri Moore lounging here and there...And a great galumphing puppy slobbering on everything would surely do wonders for even your Feng Shui!

Remind me never to offer to host a Piano party! My dear little house could fit right in your living room, second story and all...And as for our Feng Shui. It's more like Feng Fooey. Once I get all the storage I'm hoping to add this summer, should be better.

Well, if I get to one, I'll at least be sure to bring baklava to ingratiate myself. My specialty. It looks like a real blast. I like the apparent informality of the dress too. You all look more like Californians except for more brunettes. If Ms. Miraculous plays as good as she looks...Wow! If not, I don't know how jon and Chris could concentrate.
Congrats all, and thanks to jon and Rachel. I think you should make CD of every party, with a smattering of chitchat too.

Ariel

PS. Jeffrey, you don't look at all like the Samurai in your avatar! Somehow I felt let down :-).

I am curious, I saw a staircase and heard about a skylight.
How can this be?

I think we are overdue for a So. California Piano Party.
I think Joy and Rick may be considering one for the summer.

Horace - it wasn't all that long, maybe 2-7 or so. Most people left around 6.

Ariel - rachel-nyc is shopping for art as we speak. She has a lot of her own stuff hanging upstairs including photogrpahs, paintings, and sketches (she has an MFA from the Museum school).

And Kenny:

THis picture gives a clue. Note the big cutout between the first and second floor. Directly above that is a huge (maybe 9' x 12') skylight. It really makes the place. But note also there's a second set of stairs directly above the first - that one goes to a door that opens out onto the roof deck.

When Realplayer's Sahl CD comes out we should do what we can to give it some word of mouth. I heard it on the Bosie: a really amazing piece. It really brought out the range and tone of the piano, too. (Or maybe that was Realplayer, or the combination.) Anyway, I look forward to the CD.

Re: NYC May 15th Party - Pictures - 05/17/05 05:03 PM

Tom - I imagine your house is bigger.

This apartment is about 2100 sq ft, which is nothing in the burbs, but a decent size in the city.

The downstairs is essentially a open loft about 25' x 40' and the upstairs is chopped up into bedrooms plus the gallery space.

And its not like you weren't expressly invited!

i still haven't posted my photos from grotriman's party, and y'all have already had ANOTHER one!

it is an extraordinary group of people, one i wish i could be a part of on a regular basis. seeing these pictures, reading the accounts, and reminiscing about the last one in april are enough to get me thinking i have to make more trips to new york and time them appropriately!

Re: NYC May 15th Party - Pictures - 05/19/05 12:29 PM

Here is a picture of the inside of the Bosie. Notice how white those bridges and soundboard are! Whiter than a Westchester Country Club....




Why do you think those holes are there in the bass bridge? I think they are reducing mass to increase vibration in the soundboard. Does it decouple low frequencies though?

Here is a picture of my Grotrian for comparison. Notice the use of laminated wood at the base of the bridge. Wood on the soundboard appears much darker.

Hi,

I believe the bridges are partially hollowed to allow for flexibility.

People! If I don't sign on, someone pvt. me with specifics because that at least gets to my email! I am so glad everyone had a great time. I am beyond amazed at this apartment, though. Where in NYC does this exist? I thought my apartment was big -- but jeez! -- no where near in comparison. I need your realtor!

Oh well. Next time. Keep me posted!

Sorry I am a little late in adding my compliments and I am glad someone informed you I did get to play your beautiful Bosie. I can always play that Beethoven again at the next party, where ever it is. Just waiting to find out who is next. What a wonderful experience these parties are. Thank you so much for having us. You have a gorgeous apt.
