Bach Project Takes Off from the Street: "Recording the 48"

Each of the two volumes of Bach’s Well-tempered Clavier contains one prelude and one fugue in every major and minor key. Often called “the 48”, or the “Old Testament” of piano music, it is perhaps the most important keyboard work of all time. The first stage of a new recording of the complete set by pianist Martin Sturfält is now available from Piano Street for listening and downloading; seven of the Preludes & Fugues from Book 1 as well as two from Book 2. Whatever you are doing at the moment, take a three minute break and refresh your mind with the free sample we offer of the Prelude and Fugue in E-flat from Book 2. Read more >>

I have my own studio where I teach.  The piano is black, and I have some black bookshelves and a black couch.  The walls are white.  I have this picture of Beethoven hanging up:

http://www.allposters.com/gallery.asp?startat=/getposter.asp&APNum=382980&CID=4BAFE5948ED343599A0511652CED4718&PPID=1&search=beethoven&f=t&FindID=0&P=1&PP=8&sortby=PD&cname=&SearchID=

Now I have another wall that needs a painting or something.  I'm thinking something from the abstract art section:

http://www.allposters.com/gallery.asp?startat=/getthumb.asp&cid=4BAFE5948ED343599A0511652CED4718&sortby=&c=c&page=1&Search=956&parentpath=0-1013-956

Would anyone here be willing to offer me some suggestions for posters where the colors would coordinate with the Beethoven poster?  They will be on opposite ends of the room, but the colors should coordinate because it is a very small room!  Thanks in advance for your help.

The Man Who Died on Stage at Carnegie Hall

“Barere is an Anton Rubinstein in one hand and a Liszt in the other” said the famous composer Alexander Glazunov. But if you mention Simon Barere (1896-1951) to most people today, their response is “Simon Who”? Read more >>

Me too.

I have Liszt on one side of my piano and Thalberg on the other.

I keep them at least 3 feet apart.

The Four Ballades by Chopin – New Urtext Edition

The Ballade or Ballad was originally a sung poem, recounting a myth or an historical event. The form, with its connotations of simple folkloric authenticity, became popular in literature with the rise of Romanticism; Chopin is usually credited with originating the genre for the piano. Piano Street has published a new urtext edition of the four Ballades by Frédéric Chopin. Read more >>

In the Dillard's department store at the mall here they have a bust of Liszt, and Beethoven too, I believe.  They are quite large and have a copper-like finish.  Stately.  Someday I want to have busts like that in my sumptuous piano room. Smiley
