Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

I'm conducting an experiment with a penny right now. Last Monday morning before I left for work I stood a penny on its edge on the counter in the bathroom. Its still standing on its edge.

Do not go gently without good and plenty
Any age should burn and rave at reduced pay;
Rage, rage against a lost penny.

You must mean this:





Nice piece, but I'm a double-bass & flute player, so my piano chops aren't up to much. Check out this one on youtube though; pretty good (looks like the Royal Albert Hall, could be at a promenade concert)...

Great performance and awesome video! Kissin is one of my favorite pianists. When I was living in Boston I got to see him do Rach 3 with Ozawa and the BSO. I went 3 times!!! Open rehersal (had from row seats) then I went to both the opening and closing nights. incredible stuff.

It was amazing how fast that guy's fingers are going. Amazed also that it took 9 or 10 posts before people realize what was up here.

It was actually a serious question, but I left out the piano details - curious what people might do with it on BF. Anyhoo i was hoping to find someone on here who had maybe played it. I'm working on it, but my left hand gets kind of tired after a while so I was wondering how others have dealt with it.

I saw your first post, but didn't have time to answer it fully as I was on my way out to a gig this evening. By the time I got back, there had already been a number of posts. I agree that Kissin's encore is brilliant; check out here for another performance of the same piece by an 11-year old Chinese girl; talk about pearls before swine (note the members of the audience walking out! (morons!)) (she also plays violin); keep her name in mind, she's certainly going places.

I played a seriously dumbed-down version of that when I was in about 6th grade.
