Turning pages for a pianist isn't easy even when you can read music.Urbain wrote: ↑Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:45 pmWelcome back indeed! I hope the world domination through music is working for you. We could all use a little of that kind of benevolent dictatorial leadership.
rijackson, like you I was introduced to classical music and learned that I liked some of it. A roommate of mine from way back is a timpanist whose regular listening piqued my curiosity. I was sold when I got to be her page turner for Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony at a gala event. Existing among the entire symphony for an evening while those instruments were brought to life was one of the most moving, numinous experiences of my life. By the way, I don't read music. She had to nod every time she wanted me to turn the pagerijackson741 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:02 pmIn my younger years I ignored classical music, but after someone (my wife ) introduced me to it I found that like many genres of music, there's stuff I like and stuff I don't like. Some of it I like a lot. It's hard to pick a favorite, but perhaps Rachmaninov piano concerto 2.
I was doing this for some practices and the rehearsals until it struck me that I wasn't allowed to be on stage because of my state of health after the pneumonia embolism.
So I was in the OFF singing and conducting the choir for 4 days. It was extremely exhausting and painful.
I like any music that is good to sing or play (piano), mainly classical or musicals, but also pop and rock.
Not my thing is hard rock, metal and techno - there are exeptions but I have to consider my hearing.
