Any other opera queens here? I miss Luciano. Technically Placido is great
but Luciano just worked my heart more.

And will we ever see the likes of Maria again? Yes, a lot of great singers
since her but, again, nobody could emote like her. I suppose it helped that
she lived her life like a tragic heroine. The modern greats like Fleming
are just too mentally healthy.

When I was growing up in Poland, we had just one radio station. They played ONLY clasical music. After listening to it for some 20 years I developed a fobia. That's right, I can't stand Chopin and just hate Mozart.

There are some pieces by Bach and Czajkowski I like, but that's pretty much it.

I remember the day I heard Blues for the first time. I was 17 or 18. It was on on Radio Luxemburg. I loved it and I still do.

this morning the wind, outside is howling
through the sugarpines.

so i donned an el cap knitted by mrs. crawford (paul's mom)
and an old puffy jacket that i scored at the thrift store,
and took a walk thru the forest.

the damn moon, pretty as she ever was, totalled my vision,
though it impeded my sight,
thus i had to navigate the cluttered forest
via memory, and i cheated a little
by following the dog.

it was cool and when i got back to the yard
i began yarding up my 1" line, just to see
where my muscle mass added up and
i made it about 2/3 height, the rope is
a wee bit damp from the recent precip,
and for some reason it was spinning me
madly so i down-yarded and then summed up
the experience with a bach piece,

classical music is a vibrating mirror
just shy of shattering
as it welcomes the inquisitive
glance of those befuddled scuttlers
whimming about.

Rich,

That was wonderful!!! Bravo.

You must be so proud of her. She is just a chip off the old block. When you climbed, you looked always in such control--your daughter didn't even looked stressed, and played in such control.
I have loved classical music since the age of five.

Check out this piece, which has become my favorite piece of music:

Thanks for the post, Richie! I think the Haydn Sonatas don't get nearly the attention they deserve. Although Horowitz included them in his repertoire, there weren't too many "name" pianists playing them for way too many years.

That Sonata was my introduction as a pianist to Haydn's music, though I don't think I played it with the verve Sarah showed.

Well done, Daddy and daughter!
