    Really Good Day!

    Well, a really good day for me! I cleared some serious vision problems with baby shampoo! I discovered what I had expected, or hoped, that the problem hearing the top note of my piano did not indicate hearing problem, but a piano problem..I also discovered (again) why I was having such problem focusing my eyes on the music. I have monocular vision, and my eyes focus clearly, but each eye has a different length for good focus. So now I can do more with my piano playing.

    But the big thrill was the penultimate rehearsal of my short piano piece that is to be played in recital in Santa Rosa next month. The pianist has really found the heart and soul of the music, and his performance was a tremendous thrill for me. Hardly any alterations required, and those due to my errors in dynamics. The pianist has a PBS program showing here this month, but I am not sure of the date. He has recently received plugs from Byron Janis, who will probably hear the piece soon, and from Marc Andre Hamelin, who won't hear the piece.

    I am pleased beyond words (well, not quite) with the performance. It proves once again that a live pianist can do so much more than a simulation!

    I am also pleased to learn that most of my piano pieces will be recorded this month, and I expect to have the cd's late next month. The previous recording of the pianist were good, and I expect these to be great. It does provide proof that although difficult, the music is playable (by someone who is not me)!

    Well, that is a rattling on! But I was so pleased that I had to say it.

    Congratulations! Having a good day like that is a rare thing. I'm glad you are taking the time to savor it. Here's to more in the future!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    Good idea, but it will be a few cd's, and I will probably have to convert to mp3. I think that is what I did last time, for the first dozen or so pieces.
