I whish.. to gather in my house in Rome my friends of Piano Street, organizing a musical happening/recital: many of you live far away, I know, and it's an impossible dream: but it would be such a great thing to have you here, playing whatever you like....

Let me know if any of you is planning a holiday in Italy  ;)

Marg:  If everything goes well, I should be in London in Oct/ Nov on my way to and from Malaysia.  I'm going to spend a few days before heading to Malaysia and a few days on my way back to Canada.  But London is a good distance from Rome so I don't think I'll be able to meet you, only in spirit.

Littletune: You seem quite confident in your recitals.  You'll do well!  Don't worry!

I wish my right hand and arm would heal quickly so I can get back to playing my favorite pieces again.   :'(

Or I could magically grow older and marry her!

It seems that some people on this forum simply cannot leave Valentina Lisitsa alone, for some reason; we already have one thread devoted to being in love with her (which has little to do with piano playing or repertoire) and now this thread's become infected with some more of the same; I seem to remember that she's also featured in the "attractive pianists" thread AND she keeps appearing at London's Royal Albert Hall at the head of the thread lists page. Yawn...

What are you talking about?  That's the only reason why I made that thread.  

And like I said before, it was a joke.  I'm not seriously in love with her.  People say love/hate with things/other people all the time!



kid:  hey let me copy your homework!  If I miss another assignment, then I'll be failing!

Some other kid:  yeah sure, just make sure the teacher doesn't find out.

kid:  omg I love you!

Imaginary troll spray for every thread for that little peace of mind.

Cause I just got back and felt the forum to be a bit "clean". Then started participating again, suddenly my "troll sense" seem to trigger quite more often than I expected. Maybe it's because I lost faith in the moderators and community members to weed out the trolls. I wish something would happen to change my sentiment.

Not sure it's the original (perhaps someone could enlighten me). My understanding is that the one Chopin used was thrown out the window by some Russian soldiers in 1863.

Poland really should have picked a better place to be a country! Nicer neighbours at least.

But maybe drinking that close to a urinal isn't very pleasant...

10ths don't occur very much in well known classical music do they, Chopin2015 ? Do you play a lot of stride and swing ? Those styles are full of them. However, bear in mind that a straight tenth in those idioms isn't nearly as rhythmically interesting as broken tenths, either up or down, anyway. What you do in those styles, isn't really rolling but rapid jumping with the first note played prior to the beat, not on it as many people try. This creates a very exciting rhythmic counterpoint impossible to achieve by playing straight. I can actually stretch all tenths but for that reason hardly ever do. So I wouldn't bother worrying that you're missing out on a lot.

It's in ballade no 2, I know most people just roll it anyways. That particular 10th is not indicated as arpeggiated, and the following one is. So I am pretty sure it has something to do with the texture and harmony in that bar.
