"All In The Family!" Looks like we're ALL related: Me, Chris, Eddy, Monica, Terez!
Very interesting backgrounds everyone.
Now, only if we could live up to playing as good as the teachers in our musical lineages.
(I speak for myself)
Monica, how many years have you studied with Djordjevic?... He's a great Liszt interpreter; I am surprised that you don't play more Liszt?... I studied with mine for 9 years until 2nd year in college, then reality set in...
I said it before...we are like a little family here. Guess I'm the mom.
Anyway, I studied with Alexander for about 3 years. It was recently - my taking lessons again after a long break. You're right about him being a great Liszt interpreter. His last CD was the 2010 recipient of the Hungarian Liszt Society’s 35th Annual Franz Liszt International Grand Prix du Disque. I went with him when he recorded it. Very interesting experience! And I did play a few Liszt pieces while studying with him. But he introduced me to lots of other pieces that I never knew about, plus I was constantly bringing in my own pieces that I wanted him to teach me and so we just never had enough time to play everything....
I've stopped the lessons currently, but now that I'm comfortable in my new routine, maybe I can start up again. I'd love that! There is still plenty he can teach me!!
