A Recital



Every once in a while, I get up the gumption (or is it chutzpah?) to put on a recital. The purpose is to inflict my playing on others, mainly so they can see just how hard it is to get good at piano. After all, I've taken lessons for ten years, and look where it's gotten me! Don't forget the Ambrose Bierce definition (from Devil's Dictionary) of a piano:

PIANO, n. A parlor utensil for subduing the impenitent visitor. It is operated by pressing the keys of the machine and the spirits of the audience.

Anyway, if anyone in the blogging world is interested in seeing it (a long shot, perhaps), here's the info:

To utter our tired old cliche, "As Calvin would say, good luck!"

I like that definition of the piano :). Quite amusing. Is it possible that you will be recording (sound or video) your recital? I would very much like to hear it.

That is a funny definition for the piano. I've made my family listen to my bangings for the last 8 years!

Hope your concert goes well.

Thank you, all, for your encouragement. I'll definitely let you know how it goes.

And Susan, I'll try to record it if I can. Perhaps you could give me your address in order to mail you the CD. Eh?

In Christ.

Thank you for looking into recording it! I'd really like to hear it if you can work it out sometime. I'll e-mail you my address. I'd prefer not to publish it online. Call me paranoid ;).

I meant work it out somehow. . .

Oh, I was rather expecting that if you did send me your address, it would be private. You're not being paranoid in the slightest. Thanks for it, by the way. If I can manage to get it recorded, then, Lord willing, you shall have a copy.

In Christ.

I appreciate the effort :). Shall we TIOC here?

Sure.

In Christ.

Very impressive recital, Adrian. (Are you sure there weren't more than two hands on that piano at times??)
