  1. Recorded Music and Publications
    I've been listening to openings, and issues with voicing and balance seem to be common for pianists. So far my favorite is Charles Rosen for the first couple of minutes. Who do you prefer for this last movement of opus 111? And why? - if you can put it into words.
  2. Opera
    So I am a self professed Verdi fanatic. I am wishing to not be a completist due to expense and time to listen to it all. That said I don't want to miss anything worthwhile.

I started with the Hannon exercises to get my left hand back up to where my right still is, my hand is still swollen a bit in...
