    I would think that all you Europeans would be flocking over to Poland pretty soon for Chopin's big birthday. It's not that far, is it?

    JG - can I come and stay at your Grandmas at around March 1st? :D

    Here we're pinching pennies as well.

    Every time I listen to Chopin, I get the urge to invade Poland! (That was Woody Allen slightly adapted). Monica, I definitely should widen my Chopin repertoire (consisting of a single one Nocturne) the next year, shouldn't I?

    Of course, everybody should expand his or her Chopin repertoire! :D

    And speaking of traveling - here is my latest idea :idea:. Let's start a new fund-raising program, whereby the funds raised will enable me to go to Poland next Feb/March. It'll be like a business trip - I'll take lots of notes and photos for Piano Society. So everybody should just forget about donating to Piano Society - donate to me, instead. Sounds good, huh? :lol:

    Sure you can stay here for a night or two. But we live in a small commie block apartment and the living quarters are quite tight. Though I am quite far from Żelazowa Wola AND Paris

    Yes, you should. And you should play something you like. :p

    @Juuf - you anywhere near Warsaw? Most of the interesting things in Chopin's Polish life happened there anyway...

    I've just seen that no recordings of Waltzes Opp.34/3 and 42 exist on the site... :wink:

    I'd like very much to learn the 2nd sonata, but it's way too advanced for me now.

    And incidentally I like them. :p

    Aging, of course, but pianistically I've yet to come of age. :lol:
