...and another moment of rest...

Another vacation period commences. Blogging will be discontinued here for a little over a week.

OK, how about some recommended reading offsite? Here you go:

Jason Heath on This Crazy Business (3 parts, all about musicians and our mindsets).
Chris Foley's posts on piano practice (quite a few under this path).
Alex Ross on music education (July 2006).
An interview with Randall Scott Faber (1999), co-author of the famous "Piano Adventures" piano method.

Why not learn something about musical acoustics? Or maybe the Baroque Suite?

If you're tired of reading, watch something instead. Below is a video of Vladimir Horowitz playing some rather bizarre and thunderous Scriabin ("Poem Vers La Flamme").
