Wow. Hamelin seems to have figured out the whole octaves thing.

And Czifra too. I love the camera angle in his video.

Here's the original organ version:

Watch the footwork. And imagine hearing this on the organ in Orchestra Hall. It was something I'll remember for a long time.

I was going to comment that Ax looks pretty young on that CD cover.

It was released in 1987.

My favorite Lady Gaga song is Judas, as song that's obscure and was only on the radio in America for a short time back in 2011.

And yes, that's the song I'm listening to right now.

Tzimon Barto!

Saw him at Ravinia about 10 years ago. He played the Prokofiev #3. Nice performance, but he was a little too "Lang Lang" if you know what I mean.

He's a weirdo for sure - I saw him play the Rachmaninov 3 with Christophe Eschenbach conducting at Ravinia. Barto looked like a body builder, as if he could pick up the piano and carry it under his arm. Eschenbach looked like a munchkin standing next to him. I think his Rach 3 is one of the best out there - top 5 for me.

I'm hot and cold on him. He can be a bit too luxurious with tempos at times. I hated a performance of the Brahms 1 he did up in Milwaukee a long while back. He used to have a big following in Europe - popular with younger folks. I'm not sure if that is still the case. He was a student of Adele Marcus - as were a few decent pianists. I worked with Marcus on a couple of her Master Classes when she came to Chicago. She was the one who suggested he change his name to Tzimon Barto, somewhat in jest. He took it to heart.

That's sort of my point. I can't comment on his pianism with the authority that you have, but when I saw him at Ravinia, he was wearing a Seinfeld-esque "poofy" shirt.

Remember, if you can't blind 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit.

And there was a lot of BS at Ravinia that night.

ETA: Listening to #1 right now. The first movement is AMAZING. Such rhythm, such drive, very dance-y.

My relation to Bartok is similar to GKs relation to Scriabin.

Let's Talk Dirty in Hawaiian



Well, I packed my bags and bought myself a ticket
For the land of the tall palm tree
Aloha Old Milwaukee, Hello Waikiki
I just stepped down from the airplane
When I heard her say,
"Waka waka nuka licka, waka waka nuka licka
Would you like a lei? Eh?"

[Chorus:]
Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Whisper in my ear
Kicka pooka mok a wa wahini
Are the words I long to hear
Lay your coconut on my tiki
What the hecka mooka mooka dear
Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear

It's a ukulele Honolulu sunset
Listen to the grass skirts sway
Drinking rum from a pineapple
Out on Honolulu Bay
The steel guitars all playing
While she's talking with her hands
Gimme gimme oka doka make a wish and wanta polka
Words I understand Hey!

[Chorus]

Well, I boughta lota junka with my moolah
And sent it to the folks back home
I never had the chance to dance the hula
Well, I guess I should have known
When you start talking to the sweet wahini
Walking in the pale moonlight
Ohka noka whatta setta knocka-rocka-sis-boom-boccas
Hope I said it right Oh!

[Chorus]

Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear
[Spoken:] Aloha

It's June!



June
Came upon us much too soon
Then was gone
Gone
Like the mountains of the moon
At dawn

Then the sun came up on a sleepy day
And never went down at night
And the crowd kept on singin' Waste Away
But it just didn't feel right
And the prince and the drummer and the fire girls
Couldn't get our guitars in tune
And I knew it was over when the sound man said
"I wish we were still in June"

June
Telephones in private rooms
Hot bath
Bathe
In the smell of the buzz's perfume
Man, I want to go back

Then the sun came up on a sleepy day
It never went down at night
And the crowd kept on singin' Waste Away
But it just didn't feel right
And the prince and the drummer and the fire girls
Couldn't get our guitars in tune
And I knew it was over when the sound man said
"I wish we were still in June"

And we knew
It couldn't be true
It wasn't free
It wasn't for me
