I'll work on Respighi after the weekend. I'm playing for our high school production of "Oklahoma!" which will be over tomorrow so after a Sunday of Valium and Jim Beam, I'll have time.

Ooooklahoma where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain...(great, now that's in my head and I'm about to go to bed. :roll: :) )

Have fun playing the show, Curly, I mean Scott. :lol: I'll be be looking for the Respighi bio soon. (fun for me, because I'm learning things from you and Sarah about certain composers)

Thanks for this bio Sarah, good work. I've added the last name (but no link as you don't have a page on PS).

Good, I'm glad I put that in your head. Maybe it can drive you crazy (or crazier) like it has me. I can't get rid of "It's a Scandal" and "Many a New Day" (not necessarily my favorite songs but ones that we had to work on most with the kids).

I am now working on Waughan Williams. If, by the time I finish no one has claimed them, I will do Bowen and Warlock.

Ahem, here also.... Scott???

In addition, there is our little rule: he who puts up a new composer, has to write the bio". Hmm...Mayerl is still in need...guess who.... :wink:

If these bios get written, that leaves only Lutoslawski and Martinu. Any takers?

Rats, Vaughan Williams, Bowen, Warlock, and Respighi are mine too..... I vote that admins be exempted from this rule. Or else I'll have to stick to playing iron repertoire like so many others.

Thank you Scott Pitmann for your entry on Camile S-S, as I have been carrying the guilt of having volunteered to provide that bio but had not done it yet (when I get a Round Tuit) and just saw that you have done it. Whew! I feel so much better. Nice write-up too.

techneut said "Or else I'll have to stick to playing iron repertoire like so many others."

Do you mean like: Honegger's "Pacific 231", or Verdi's "Anvil Chorus" from "Il Trovatore", or Beethoven's "Rage over a Lost Penny," or ... <fill in the blank>

PS: For some reason none of the chrome seems to be working right now: emoticons, font type, etc.

"Iron Man" ala Black Sabbath. :lol:

Eddy, the editing tools and smiles only work for the admins here in this forum. Sorry...

I see no reason why this would not work for you. Smilies and BBcode are all enabled in your profile. Could be because this particular forum was never meant for non-admins to post in (not sure why this is still possible but I can't be bothered to find out).

Yeah, my short term memory got shorter during that time. <That's my story and I'm sticking with it.> I'll get going with it. I did start looking for info when I say Chris' message to Richard.

@Eddy - Thanx. I did the Saint-Saens bio a year or so ago.
