Still waiting for Pete. In the meantime, Where in the world?

Clues:

There is one of these in Pennsylvania, but they are not the same.
It has to do with "dwellings and loaves" in its local language.
A significant event has occured here, to which millions if not billions were affected.

Can you guess this place?

(Answers to be given Wednedsay 10th)

The answer to my Where In the World is Bethlehem, West Bank.

There is a town in Pennsylvania that shares the same name but, obviously, one is in the US and the other in the middle east.

The etymology of the name means "House of Bread" or in Arabic "House of Meat"

And you can figure out the last clue :idea:

sorry, J - I didn't see this earlier. Doesn't matter though because this looks like a piece of crinkled brown paper bag.

This will perhaps be the greatest game in this history of this thread! (Based on the time it is taking you to assemble it!!!)

OK, I'm back. Sorry for the absence. I was in blinding pain for two months. Searing, mind-numbing, so-bad-you-want-to-die kind of pain. I had a running/repetitive-motion injury to my piriformis muscle, which caused muscle spasms around the sciatic nerve. It felt like my leg was being flayed over and over again. Thank God for pain-killers!

Anyway, I'm better, mostly. Down to treating the injury with physical therapy, ibuprofen and just the odd Tylox. The prognosis is good, as long as I don't re-injure it.

Ugh.

Where was I? Right; a game...

I'll have to work on it later, my leg hurts from sitting.

Pete

Bit of a wimp, aren't you Pete !

Seriously though... that sounds real bad. You should not overdo that running thing.

Anyone who can run till something breaks is not a wimp. Stupid, maybe, but definitely not a wimp. :lol:

Although this may have been just as much a piano playing injury. For the last year or so, I've been healing from a shoulder injury, so I have spent almost none of that time sitting at the piano. Since October 2008, as the shoulder had healed, I resumed practice with gusto; my time on the bench increased too quickly, bruising the sciatic nerve, causing otherwise minor muscle spasms, which were acutely exacerbated by running.

Anyhoo, I'm getting less wimpy every day! :wink:

Ok, Pete. According to my clock, you have about two more hours. I get a little cranky if I am made to wait. :x :wink: :)

guess someone doesn't like a little tease? I suppose you don't watch James Bond films because of the redundant "1 second left on the clock; Bond makes the escape or stops the bomb from going out, then procedes to make passionate love to a bombshell [pardon the pun] whilst waiting for the Royal Navy to rescue them" scene :P

What do you mean? I am a tease! Or haven't you noticed. :lol: And I love James Bond movies too. Especially Sean Connery. (ugh - now I've got that song "Gold Finger" running through my head)

Pete is late! :evil:

If you haven't figured it out by now, I can't be trusted.

No, seriously; I'm working on it right now.

Pretty straight forward. Name the pieces. Some are just fragments. "I can name that tune in"....just one chord?

Hopefully, after I'd made many nervous with my pianistic slash-and-burnery, the first one will elicit feelings of relaxation.

Go ahead, giggle at my note errors, I deserve it. :roll:

3. Beethoven, Sonata Op.27/1 (Adagio con espressione)
(beautiful, you should record the whole sonata and submit it in AR!)

5. Don't know, I smell a scriabinesque aroma.

7. Mozart, Sonata K.570 (Allegretto)



I'm afraid I cannot go further than that. :x

Well, looks like I won't be winning this round. I don't know any of these for sure. :x

No. 1 is so familiar, though. I know I've played it in some random book that I have around here. Now it's driving me nuts.

No. 4 sounds like something Italian.

No. 7 sounds like Mozart.

#2 is either Clementi or Scarlatti, I think it is the latter but to name the exact sonata would be impossible considering how many there are.

#4 is Tchaikovsky's Neopolitan Dance from the AftY (I tried to play this piece but the left hand was a b*** when I tried to add the right hand to it)

For #2, I just need the composer, the name of the piece (not the specific number, just the generic title, such as "prelude" or "sonata") and the key in which it is written. (Hint, the recording stops not at the end, hence the last note is not the tonic.)

Number 4 is right.

You're right on all 5! :lol:

Number 5: I'll post the next few notes and I bet you'll get it right away. This is just one chord from a very long piece for piano and orchestra. (Hint)

Number 3 is right; btw I think I should record it, too. I know the whole sonata but it had many technical errors. I haven't revisited it in about 10 years, so I may give it a go. Thanks.

Number 7 is of course, correct.

The score is:

Monica 5...okay, 0
JG......................1
Alf......................2

Anyone have an idea on #6? It's the opening bars on a composition for Piano and three other instruments.

I think I should get a half a point for getting 'something Italian' for No. 4. :P

No one guessed No. 1 yet? I just know I've heard this and even played it sometime. Sounds like an elegy or consolation. hmmmm....

Is #1 a Schubert composition? ...wait nevermind, it's too short to be composed by Schubert, if it was 20 minutes long, then I would bet it to be.

I give up...

Ok, I saw your hint on the other forum. No. 1 is a Romance, but still can't remember by whom. I looked through every book I have and can't find it.

Pete, if you don't want to reveal all the answers yet, can you please pm me the answer to this one? It's really driving me crazy now.

Well, all you stated was that it is a Romance. And it is by Faure. Does that not count?

Ok. FYI the title is Romance sans Paroles, Opus 17 Number 3.

So far it's a tie between JG and Alf, tomorrow, I'll post the next few notes of that "Scriabinesque" fragment. You'l recognize it right away, I think. Hint, it's a 20th century American quasi-jazz composition.

I really don't have any idea about #5. It could well be Gershwin, Pete's hint seems to point in that direction.

OMG! Yes! Rhapsody in Blue! You are good lady!!! :shock: I never thought anyone could get that one.

(See what happens when we don't rush? :wink: )

Number 6 hint: the composition is for flute, piano, bass and percussion. The fragment is the opening line of the first movement.

Scores
MA-1
JG-2
ALF-2

Go on Monica, give us a three way. (Tie, that is.) Nathan's rubbin' off on me. (That sounds even worse! :lol:)

Correction:

JG-3
Alf-2
MA-1

Aw, now my double-entendres don't work. :cry: :lol:

The only one unanswered is #6.

It's Alf and Juuf! (Pianolady deserves special credit for #5, though. Go girl!)


PS, I went back to the ER night before last with pain (quite an understatement) in my sacrum. The MRI shows a partial tear in my piriformis muscle. Looks like surgery is probable. The outpatient procedure is pretty straightforward; a 3 inch incision is made in the buttock near the lumbar spine and the piriformis muscle is removed, relieving the pressure on the sciatic nerve. Luckily, it's not cancer as I was dreading. Cancer is our family curse. (That and asthma.)

I may never again run distances over 3 miles. :x Oh well, I'll just take up weightlifting again. I used to be pretty buff! :lol:

FYI, this is piriformis syndrome:

Funny - Too bad Nathan doesn't come around more often to see how he's rubbed off on all of us.

So, ok - we may have a two-way tie if Alfonso gets no. 6.

I can see where running would be painful in that area. I've been jogging almost daily - still trying to work off the holidays, but I have pain in my neck and shoulders. Weight training is good.

Nerve pain is far worse than a toothache, or an ice cream headache. Pain strains the heart, too. At the ER, my blood pressure was 170/120!

How do you like running? Learn from this fool; steady wins the race.

These days I hate it! There is too much snow on the path so I either go to the health club, or use my own treadmill at home and try to find something on TV to take my mind off of how bored I am. Outside is better because I run with my ipod, so music and nature keeps me happy.

Just as long as nothing hurts, keep at it. :wink: How long have you been running?

PS: 72hrs remain for Alf to tie it up, then all shall be revealed.

Where do you usually go (I mean, which spa)?

Well, nothing like the one in Baden Baden or any other world-class spa. I just go to some places in my town – Mario Tricoci’s or Coldwater Creek Spa. I get facials, pedicures, and of course massages – all kinds. Why, do you want to come with me? :lol:

And Alfonso, I think you are not that keen on jazz, but I have attached a track of the Claude Bolling/Jean Pierre Rampal CD for you to hear. I had it up on the site once before when I was chatting to another member about flute playing.
