Haha yes, but not after you've done the complete Hanon first to loosen up these lazy fingers
No, I'm only used to Chopin and Brahms etudes.

But seriously, you should try find a piano partner via Internet. With your PS recordings as calling-card, it should not be so hard.

I've just bought a new car, taking advantage of government eco-bonus, replacing my old VW Golf. And it's a Hyundai! It's bifuelled lpg, so I'm more inclined to do longer travels by car now.
By the way, I've recently had to replace the fridge, a ten-year GE, and I took a Samsung. So, as you can see, I'm going all the way South Korean!
Can you bring your stage piano to here with your new car? I'm still searching a digital and maybe buy one within the foreseeable future. Otherwise I could reserve the room where I can play sometimes, but the piano is not in a good condition Anyway, after your positive reaction the Schubert doesn't go away out of my head!
I don't know much about cars, but I can say the Korean fridges are quite good. They must be very good to satisfy the pricky Korean housewives I just ordered an Italian product via internet. It's like a Ferari in the field about children: a baby buggy of Peg Perego
Yes, Peg Perego is quite a good brand.

It was like a Jeep, rather large so they could both sit side-by-side next to each other while one of them drives. It ran on a huge battery almost the size of a real car battery, and they had a lot of fun with it. Lasted quite a long time too (through two boys and all their little friends. Except, one of my kids drove right through a bush and tore off the rear-view mirrors, but the car still kept running), so Peg Perego must indeed be a good brand.
and btw - my boys Jeep was red, but I think they make a pink "Barbie" car too, so get ready....
hyenal wrote:Ah, I once saw a car of Peg Perego in a supermarket, but I've never seen someone driving something like that. Anyway it's interesting to hear that a children car lasted so long and ran so well!
BTW how old are your sons, Monica? Are they in a high school?

Is that cute boy in the second photo the 3-years-old son of Andreas?

Victor: "That's against the law"
Victor is alluding to that when driving a car it is illegal to go through an intersection when your lane has a red light and is signalled to stop. When a car goes through an intersection illegally, that is called "running (through) the lights"; hence Victor's reaction "That's against the law!"

Indeed this thread includes apart from the original topic (a meeting for piano duet of Andreas and Chris):
Planning a meeting of Alfonso and me,
Grolsch vs Heineken
