    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.

  10. Recorded Music and Publications I just downloaded the PC app and it's awesome. It is based off JRiver but like iTunes it has an online store to get high resolution files like iTunes.

    I was disappointed the other thread wasn't about instrumental trios, so I'm making this one. A trio of horn trios. (No disrespect intended toward Pyotr, in whose poll I voted.)

    Just curious, do you consider your life to be actively simple? This probably means different things to different people. But may I ask if you at least prefer to have a simple way of life? And then if you do prefer to have a simple way of life, do you actively live it that way?
