  2. How about one of the Prokofiev or Faure sonatas? (I prefer all of them to the Elgar) What about the Janacek Sonata? How about Ruralia Hungarica by Dohnanyi? More ideas: One of the Bartok or Shostakovich Sonatas Szymanowski Sonata ...I prefer the Stravinsky Divertimento to the Suite Italianne
  3. some people i know like to goof around with cakewalk
  4. I suspect it may be time for a new piano player, tape record your next rehearsal if you want to be sure cheers scott
  5. How about a book of chopin waltzes or maybe preludes? ...or maybe the video the art of piano? ...also the move "shine", a move about a virtuoso pianist whose career when sour - but it was a great movie with lots of rachmaninoff in it ...what I would recommend the most is a documentary called "the cliburn" about people who competed in the van cliburn competition (including olga kern) - I think watching this will maybe build the hunger to practice.
  6. that piece gives me a headache ..but .I do like the composition he wrote Der Erlkonig, very cool
  7. How about "autumn leaves"? ...this is what I started with when I was trying to learn jazz for more ideas try this: "http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/syltguides/fullview/B8E85MZTZ14Z/ref=cm_bg_cf_full1/102-4844786-4287307"> http://www.amazon.com/gp/richpub/syltguide...4844786-4287307
  8. I've hear people on this list talk favorably about the Gliga Gems 2 series
  9. The way I heard it was sevick lost his eye when changing a string for a student
  10. What a coincidence, Im studying the lalo right now also. Are you familiar with the music minus one series? "http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1596151390/sr=8-1/qid=1147445116/ref=sr_1_1/103-2463804-5401460?%5Fencoding=UTF8 "> http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/159615139...5Fencoding=UTF8 cheers Scott
  11. Check out the cd Salvatore Accardo Plays Paganini's Guarneri Violin. I also saw something in here a long time ago about a young girl recording the beethoven conerto on paganini's violin, i think it was on the italian label dynamic if i'm not mistaken
  12. I remember reading something in here a long time ago that said he teaches kung fu now
  13. Question: I was wondering if anyone thinks Mr. Heifetz plays some pieces "too fast" or "with rushed tempos" ? It all started at a different forum, I was telling someone that the reason I like Szeryng so much is because he does not interfere with the music. For example when I hear Szeryng play Mendelssohn all I hear is Mendelssohn but when I hear Heifetz play Mendelssohn all I hear is Heifetz. Someone disagreed with me and said that it iwas Heifetz that was plying the concerto at the right tempo.To support this I would like to offer a few notes, consider the following times of recordings I found of the Mendelssohn Concerto:24.15 Heifetz recording 1 24.26 Milstein24.32 Heifetz recording 225.16 Francescatti25.40 Kyung Wha Chung25.55 Grumiaux26.28 Szeryng26.42 Kreisler26.59 Oistrakh 27.18 Kogan27.47 Perlman28.06 Zukerman30.78 Mutter(I didn't list Hahn, Campoli, and many others - could someone post how long Hahn's recording was - I thought her recording was too fast also)-Now that you know my opinion, I would like to ask for you opinions: when YOU listen to Heifetz do you ever feel the tempo is being rushed?Respectfully,Scott
