The Real Chopin Shines in Warsaw
Following the success of the first International Chopin Competition on Period Instruments launched in Warsaw in 2018, the Chopin Institute invited the world to its second edition on 5 - 15 October 2023. Piano Street’s Patrick Jovell was present at the finals in Warsaw and had a chance to ask Chopin Institute’s Aleksander Laskowski a couple of questions in the grand hall of the National Philharmonic.

Well, neither of them is Bruno Canino, for sure (think about that - and specifically about his duo partnership with his compatriot Antonia Ballista that at one time encouraged some to dub the duo "Cannon and Ball"); give me "kitten on the keys" (said to be a literal English translation of Sorabji's title Opus Clavicembalisticum - think about it for a moment) any day and, while so doing, do please also bear in mind the fact that, as the cliché has it, "dogs have masters: cats have servants".

Best,

Yes she looked especially good when she made those videos playing Chopin for a film about him.  Recently, after her marriage, she did not look as good.

Returning to Lola Astanova, I thought I'd post a link to an interview with her, so people can have a better idea of what she's like in a more natural environment.

At the end of the interview, she played Chopin's "Ocean" Etude.  Note her heavy panting throughout.

lol she does have a way with theatrics, especialy in her scriabin etude and about 2 minutes into on her of rachmaninoff moments musiceaux.  i need to see if i can find a review of how her carnegie hall recital debut went.your link is recent so it may be it but i can't understand russian to save my life.

while we're on interviews, relatively recent one with little yuja. q and a starts afer a brief intro w her playing at a min or so in...

i love the glen gould-esque aspect to her playing where she's almost mouthing and singing along what she's playing (or about to play as i think glen tended to be about a beat or so ahead of his hands.)

No, I think Astanova's Carnegie Hall debut is on 12 January.  I heard she recently played some kind of warm-up concert in a bar/nightclub.

I'd like to be with another artist because when you are as serious an artist as I am, artists are the only people that can stand you, and the only people you can stand are artists. Sure, there are exceptions, but this has been the case in many of my experiences. I strive to find attractive pianists, with all that said.

Essentially this.

As for attractive musicians... Valentina Lisitsa isn't bad looking at all, looking on the female side. That she appears to be a cool person to hang out with judging from interviews and such also adds to this. And as Birba mentioned earlier, on the male side, Boris Berezovsky has a certain charm.

EDIT: Oh, and if we aren't looking at just classical pianists, I'd also like to throw AMANDA PALMER in there.
My current to-do list:
* Yann Tiersen
~ La Valse d'Amélie
* Beethoven
~ "Pathétique" II. Adagio
* Petzold
Menuet in G minor (BWV 115)
* Satie
- Gymnopédie No. 3

no worries.  i can't find the original thread on here but someone put up a score many years ago on pianostreet (i tried looking again but couldn't find it, but it was old like maybe 2003? or so) so i'll post the score since it is already on here but if i am asked to I will remove it.

yeah my understanding is he trascribed it as a musical commentary/voicing his irritation at the recurring malady. see and hear the performance today excerpt below:


brilliant little work (note the seven tones at the end mimmick/sound like phone tones when you dial a phone number, seven of them since in the US that is the standard number without the area code) also i don't know if you can buy this score outside of the US right now and i'd hate for you to not be able to enjoy reading it, note this sub board wont' allow attachement, just respond to this when you download the pdf file and mp3 i am posting for you from my mediafire account and i'll deactivate the links asap so we don't get in trouble.

mp3 recording, unfortunately I don't know the performer, this was a reall bugger for me to find
