The Complete Piano Music by Franz Schubert

Unlike Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt or Chopin, Schubert was not a keyboard virtuoso. He played the piano only in the intimate gatherings known as Schubertiads. Nevertheless, he is certainly one of the greatest composers for piano, exploring the expressive potential of the keyboard in a succession of masterpieces for solo piano, piano duet, chamber music and song accompaniment. Therefore, it’s an event worth celebrating when Piano Street now publish his dances as well as his complete piano sonatas, which in addition to the previously available selection of Impromptus, Moments Musicaux and many other pieces give you the complete picture of Schubert as a composer for the piano.

Is there anything more useless for people to do with their time? I hate watching it because it's stupid and I hate doing it because it's boring and unpleasant!

Sports are great, especially team sports. The adrenaline rush, exhausting your body, and teamwork makes sports an awesome activity.

There's some merit to exercise I guess, but the rest of it is just stupid. Who cares if the other guy runs faster than me unless he's chasing me with an ax...

Sports are fun, the "keeps you fit" is just an extra. That way I don't have to gym or weight lift to keep my body toned.

We are just different spirits then. For me competition isn't about validation, it's about the thrill of fighting against someone else. It's JUST FUN!!!
Dribbling and scoring goals against people is way better than doing it by yourself.

I used to really enjoy my twenty-five years or so of hard, competitive tennis. Admittedly though, it was the physical activity itself which drove me, not diehard competitive spirit, and when I improved and was placed in serious teams I found all the analysis and arguments unpleasant and stopped. Nonetheless, at seventy, it seems to me that those among my contemporaries who played no sport are now the poorer for it in several ways. There is the obvious quality of residual fitness, which I have come to believe does actually exist, but there is also the mental aspect of sportsmanship, which is difficult to define but instantly recognisable in someone. Not all sportspeople possess sportsmanship, especially these days, but those who do have a valuable mental attribute in all fields of endeavour. It is the ability to have an intense battle with somebody within a harmless, controlled framework and emerge the best of mates afterwards regardless of who wins.

Luckily, I never had the right build to participate in those sports which are clearly dangerous to health. For example, there is growing realisation that concussion from the contact varieties of football is producing dementia in alarming frequency among older, ex-footballers. Other examples of harm exist in other popular sports. The sentiments of the previous paragraph, therefore, do not apply to those sports having a high probability of serious injury.

So part of me agrees with outin, as sports are certainly neither necessary nor sufficient, (exercise might be necessary for health though) but another part agrees with mjames.

Renowned jazz pianist Art Tatum was said to have listened (couldn't see) to basketball games while improvising.

I think we all have our own reasons for being into piano anyway.

When I listened to the "master" pianists there's a world always in my head about it. There are Two Towers devoted to learning two different kinds of virtuosity - the first was the Angel Tower and the other was called the Devil Tower.

These Towers were made as a result of a schism long ago. On the aftermath of Franz Liszt, there was a joint effort by the piano community to study and replicate the master's legendary technique. Unfortunately, a rift soon started known as the Great Schism over what "virtuoisty" truly is about; disciplined, perfectionistic art, or thrilling, explosive showmanship? Thus, the movement was split into two factions and they decided to build their own Tower schools.

In the latter Tower, you first had to endure countless taunting of the abusive guards in the first floor before the Master called you in. Then after a few grueling tests to prove your worth as you ascended the tower floors there came a test 95% of students quit afterwards humiliatingly. Basically it involved you being forced to watch a short performance by either Volodos or Berezovsky and it would be miraculous if you still decided to continue the course.

Of course in the first tower the staff are more professional, first you got to present your credentials to the doorman and then they'd let you in based on their assessment. These guys don't believe in egotistical demonstration unlike the other tower, they're more scientific and research-based. Hamelin is their primary researcher and there even have been a few decent non-classical pupils who partially studied there, notably Art Tatum who took a few disciplined courses there to refine his technique.

This is the Tale of the Two Towers.
