Slightly surprised by her dress.  I'd thought it would be too revealing for the current Iranian regime.

Not only that, it's no small matter of surprise not only that the orchestra has returned to its long chequered existence but that a woman might conduct it there; the attitudes of the current Iranian régime (that's to say the one since the 1979 Islamic revolution) towards the study and performance of what one might loosely term "Western classical music" in Iran, whilst having been harsher at some times than at others, has hardly ever been what members here would think to regard as any kind of proud record...

valerie stern is pretty.

 plays pretty well (at least as well as the score allows, not Mr Shaw's best work but still interesting what he does with it)




i gave her a few bonus points becuase her japanese is so good (which has nothing to do w piano but i have an affinity for all things land of the rising sun)!

"Because when I asked her, she just ignored me.  So, I took it upon myself to open the door and let in the little chipmunk.  The chipmunk smelled pretty horribly, like he had been sipping on that old bottle of whiskey and threw up all day long, and then laid in it while he ate acorns into oblivion.  He somehow dragged himself in, though -- got to hand it to him.

Finally she couldn't resist and took my hat off, seeing the two pieces of cheese I had stored in my hair for my snack later on.  The chipmunk snapped out of oblivion and jumped onto my head, digging madly through my hair to find the cheese.  He just yanked hair out as though it were threads on an old jacket, where once you start to pull, the whole thing comes unravelled.

-- that is the reason I have balding spots on my head."

so nice to hear  great Babajanian performance. The music is so lovely


alternate video. i think people sometimes forget that one of the best ways to measure an effective performance of a piece with a 'dance' - like character/quality is to see if you can do just that. dance to it, or parts of it. well, there you go.

Nice Khataturian-have always freakin loved this piece. the girls gets it. yep.

1. Why would anyone who gives a twopenny damn about the piano want/agree to be photographed sitting on top of one?
2. I have neither the ability nor the desire to "dance" to anything and, since I don't doubt that I am far from alone in this why would what you suggest be "one of the best ways to measure an effective performance of a piece" which has any kind of dance-like quality? - especially given that it's not just humans who dance - music itself can and does that!
