Talking Bach with Pianist Ramin Bahrami
Iranian pianist Ramin Bahrami is considered one of today's most interesting interpreters of Johann Sebastian Bach's music. A regular performer at Cremona Musica, Bahrami and flutist Massimo Mercelli presented works from their latest CD, "Bach Sanssouci", on the Decca label. Piano Street's Patrick Jovell was happy to get the chance to talk to the inspirational performer. Read more >>

Well, at least I'm well and truly let out of this one, never having been a pianist in the first place.

And please don't anyone use that admission as an excuse to start a new thread on attractive composers...

Best,

New rule: you can't nominate someone without a picture being posted, so birba is disqualified without a picture.
I'll second that!

Speaking of attractive composers AND pianists, no one, and I mean NO ONE, can top this.

Hmmm maybe I could make a picture from one of Birba's videos.  :P  :P
And what do you mean Birba that you doubt that you're a pianist?!  :o Just ask people here who saw your videos and heard your recordings!  ::)

Birba is too modest, that's all. He's one of the best and most entertaining pianists I've ever known.

adelina de lara-she studied under clara schumann and while studying became a freind of our dear j. brahms., she's most interesting, escpecially since she made it into 'modern times' as a concert artist (70+ year performance career) so we have first person accounts of clara via this great pianist.
ca1896, i don't think she was super cute later on but early i could see our romantic brothers taking a second look or two

What an interesting photo! Is that you in the shadow? The piano looks like your Yamaha C3. The rug under it looks familiar. You're not wearing your usual black long sleeved shirt so it's probably summer. Yes, I think it's you! Thanks!! I enjoyed the photo very much! So now there's a photo of you, I'll nominate you as an attractive pianist again!

Possibly my seniority? I don't know. I have almost 3000 posts on this account, and I have another account that I used to have that has almost 2000 posts. Not sure if that's worth anything, but hey, clearly people have been heeding my so called rule.

Well if you're not a pianist then I'm not either... and I'm sure not attractive and I'm just a kid... and there's too many pictures of girls in this thread anyway.  :P but maybe I'll post anyway...cause I'm saying people should post pictures of themselves but I'm not posting mine... so that kinda doesn't seem right...  :P

Well if Littletune is just a kid I can perfectly understand her reluctance.  When you watch TV nowadays, most images of kids are pixellated.  We live in a dangerous world indeed.

Actually, images of kids are only pixelated in the United States if there is a crime scene, as far as I know. I see kids with their faces visible all the time on the news.
