yeah, every so often when i go for an exam or go to a music shop, people will ask what my name is. When I tell them, they always go aww...that's such a sweet name. My aunt/ grandaunt etc. has the same name.

:lol: I believe it - some names just get generational implications, and Amelia is one of those. It goes in the same category as Gertrude, Mildred, Henrietta, and quite a few others.

I think Amelia is prettier than the others, though - the camellia is a very common flower where I live, and one of my favorites. ;)

Well, the original topic ranges from depressing to annoying, so the diversion was enjoyable. ;)

I bet he has, cause there's a violin under the piano. :lol: Or maybe it's a viola....

She is so young but plays with so much expression etc. http://www.youtube.com/user/klingsor93


Holy crap!!!

She's one in a billion.

My God! I used to play that one and not even close with the same technical and musical quality. Makes me look like a fool ;).

Amelia, if you want your quote tags to work properly, you have to disable HTML, either in your profile or in the check boxes at the bottom of each post.


Yes, I couldn't see the forest through the trees! :lol:

I think we all (to varying degrees) look the fool near the likes of her! Oh well, I don't let it get to me...much.

Thread resurrection!

I'm too lazy to go through the thread and see if this girl has been posted before, but I have seen musicblau commenting on her videos (I didn't look at many of them, because I didn't find anything quickly that made me as happy as the first one). I love that etude.

Very nice, I love this "heavy" intonation towards Chopin music ( see A. Rubinstein version of op. 27 no. 1 Nocturne, for instance )
