Tommy from Toledo ... Toiletto

Maybe you guys could trade in the tuxedos for a FUBU sweatshirt, play sports, pick up girls, and then you'd might be cool enough to educate someone on what's hip and beautiful? ... just a thought. As for the "musicality" thing - bravo, keep up the good work. Now go wash your hands!

uh, i probably know more about wine than you!

the problem is even greater. not only perceived as elevator music, in this case used as a deterrent like Raid for loiterers. maybe they'll use it at guantanamo next.....


I'm with you on the Shell station thing. Societal norms do not perceive classical music as anything less than monotone elevator music. No one evaluates it for its musicality. Sad indeed...

Wine Snob

What do you know about wine?

  • Brahms 1 in Winston-Salem
    This week brings a return to one of my favorite homes away from home. I've played with this orchestra a number of times, and conducted them once. Last year I played my first Rhapsody in Blue with them, and now return for what is pretty much my favorite concerto, the titanic, volcanic Brahms 1st Piano Concerto. This piece demands the greatest level of physical, psychological, emotional resources, and stamina of any concerto. Yeah......
  • Beethoven 5th Concerto
    For the last several years, this university has hosted the Next Generation Festival, of which I'm the artistic director. They not only are renovating their music building, but have just made a purchase of a very lovely hall in Lancaster, former home of the Pennsylvania Academy of Music. I'm looking forward to seeing and playing in this space.
  • Beethoven 4th Piano Concerto
    Haven't been back in over 15 yrs. Should be nice. I did my first Beethoven 1 there, now my umpteenth Beethoven 4. I've heard they've come a long way since then..... So have I!
