I cannot thank him enough
I had run out toilet paper
And didnt know what I was going to do
Lucky for me Bobbie to the rescue
Found a suitable a substitute and more appropriate to purpose for this

Funny... I was listening to that on the radio earlier this afternoon.

I sadly enough like it better than the Grieg.

lol it's ok , Gieg at least has an interesting third movement. I was probably too hard on the Schumann , it's more liked a most flushable wipe that could be used to wipe up a variety of things, could also line a cat litter box in a pinch I suppose

Alkan would have handled this well, seeing as he self-isolated for about half his life  ;D

Thal must be otherwise occupied right now, perhaps scoring at his local emporium or maybe scanning scores of other much lesser known early 19th century Romantic piano concertos elsewhere; in his absence, I can only say that, whilst I would not go as far as some of the sentiments expressed above, this concerto strikes me in the main as one of its composer's dullest works and I've never understood why so many pianists continue to perform it so frequently - for example, I yield to no one in my admiration for Martha Argerich but if she ever plays it yet again I will want to scream!...

Best,
