  1. This guy’s mastery of dynamics (not just Beethoven’s markings, but his own as well) on the piano is fabulous; make me marvel.

    It’s almost as if you could see the wheels in his head turning,
    Pleasure-a-plenty!

            1. Yeah Baby…. my words, really. In my youth I used to speak very less…one day a friend of my older brother, who was known to speak a lot of bullshit, asked me, why I would not speak too much. I was about 12-13 years old, my answer came instinctively and fast: “The one who speaks less also says less bullshit”.

              He turned to red in the face and he wasn’t seen in hour house for a long time 😉
