Well I have figured an empirical way to determine whether you have become old. Are the photographs from your christening in black and white? Unfortunately mine are. And I would bet yours are in colour (never mind, don't reply to this :D ).
It's always nice to see that you keep playing and recording. By the way, your Schumann on another post was fabulous. Of course I still play but I've been busy with jazz repertoire until fairly recently. I hope soon I'll get some time to record for PS. Anyway, I enjoy listening to your pieces and I keep visiting PS to hear others play even if I don't submit my music or comments.


You're sweet, Pantelis. :) And that's good news about you hoping to get some time to record soon! Do you still have those two fabulous pianos?

The pianos are ok since you ask, but I am extremely frustrated for another reason. I had prepared some demo recordings with different microphones and placements as well as some photos to give an idea of how these things affect the final result. Alas, I relied on a USB stick and saved them there instead of the laptop's drive. The stick died and all the audio is gone! Tragic.
I promise you though I'll redo the whole project and submit it in the resources section. I am left with only the photos, here are two of them as an example.

Oh, I'm sorry about what happened! Darn technology sometimes!
But thanks for the photos - I'm glad to see both pianos! May I please come over and play them? Or better yet, may I come over and play some four-hand music with you? :)

Monica, I'm sure we had this discussion in the past. The invitation is open. If you happen to visit Athens, I would be more than glad to see you.

I'm really 90 years old--my memory is slipping. :wink:

And likewise if you ever come to Chicago. :)
