Oh wait I thought you played in the main library, you played in the west branch (never been)?  There are no lions there, are there? :'(

No, no lions there.

But my music is unafraid of the lions, if I were to play at Copley Square!  8)

Sounds like a great title for a new work:

UNAFRAID OF LIONS!   :o

One or two borderline quackly moments in the performance of the Studies . . . but overall, I am very pleasantly surprised at how well I managed to play the piece. (Yes, that means that I shall need to try again to better it, but still . . . .)

One thing is, I didn't feel that I was 'lagging' at all through the course of the piece; nor that any pause was 'trending pregnant'.  Pace felt good, and I felt that the audience was 'with' me.  Bottom line, though, is that the performance ran just over 24 minutes.

The Tropes on Parasha's Aria from White Nights, though, got to a strangely deliberate start.  It works, but it feels a little dirge-ey.

I haven't decided if each instrument is a bird, or each interval . . . .

Not sure how long the mails will take, Cato;  hoping a disc may land by you today.

I did ask Kathy how much rehearsal she thought the Carter would require.  She said she's still learning her part, and (what is not a surprise) it's hard.

Where were you playing, Karl?  It sounds like a house concert?

Yes, a fellow who has 15 pianos in his house.

15 pianos.  I have to take that in.  It took a lot of figuring and rearranging to fit our one Steinway Model M into our house.  A house with 15 pianos. . . .   Was the host of the party Jay Gatsby, by any chance?  Did you see a green light at the end of the pier across the water?  Be careful about these parties, Karl, a nice boy like you could get hurt/disillusioned/disenchanted. . . I'd hate to see that happen!
