Hi Schmonz,
You remind me of Peter Frampton. Just watched him on Soundstage last night. Do you know what I'm talking about? It's the hair thing.


Heh, I guess it was rockstar-style hair. (More often I heard "you look like Jesus.") Ah, but it had to go. It was a lot of work, and annoying when playing sports, and it got really, really hot under there in the summer.

Nice to see the people behind the postings here. So this is me :)
We recorded the Mozart piano+violin sonata (-> audition room) as a Christmas present and with the cover (1st photo) we made fun of the recent Mutter/Orkis recording (and, of ourselves, obviously -- which is why my violin partner would probably kill me if she knew that I posted this here, so shhhh don't tell anybody).
Since I own a "portable" (35kg...) piano, I almost never travel without one. I think in the second photo I was practicing either Courante or Gigue from French Suite No. 5 and my girlfriend took the photo to document how much she had to suffer by helping me to carry the "monster" and then listening to the key action without hearing any music all the time. I like animals, and in the third picture I'm becoming friends with a llama...

:D Nice pictures. You never travel without your portable piano? You mean really never? I should force that into my company policy :P .

Hehehe, I tried that once (in a zoo, though) and the bloody thing spit me in the eye. The smell was horrible... My wife still sniggers about that.
Nice photos BTW. You got the portable in that backpack ? :wink:

Luckily this llama did not spit... When we saw it first we tried to be very silent so that we could get close without having him run away. But then it turned out that this guy was not at all frightened. In fact, he kept sitting in the middle of the trail and we had to climb around him to pass by. But at least he posed (and smiled) nicely for the camera :)
Indeed, Robert, I think travel expenses for pianos should be covered by any good company's reimbursement policy :)

Hey juufa, funny enough that this was in Austria, about half an hour from Salzburg (Mozart's birthplace). The last place where we expected to see a llama. But an owner of a "chalet" bought two of them with the idea that they could help him carry heavy stuff. Apparently they were too stubborn to be used for work, so now they seem to have a happy life up there hanging out and doing nothing... :)

Hm, bit of an anticlimax there.... I really thought you was climbing the Andes there. Ah well, the Salzkammergut is nice too :wink:

Yeah, maybe I should be less honest, but I had cropped already the village down in the valley so that it looks more adventurous... :wink:

Ah, the mysterious Julius finally revealed. You look pretty much as I had imagined. Very contemplative, as well. Nice to see you, Julius.
