Zo for Sep 30

Tonight’s group skipped out on the presidential debate tonight to come hear the piano. Oh brave audience, forsaking the national dialogue for a little music! Here’s a recording of the debate in case you missed it. (I listened to about half the debate later on, and was impressed with Kerry, who was very articulate and clear-headed.)

  • Cantrell – Cradle Waltz
  • Chopin – Nocturne Op 15 No 2
  • Chopin – Nocturne Op 15 No 3
  • Brahms – Ballade Op 10 No 4

  • Cantrell – Entropic Waltz
  • Brahms – Intermezzo Op 116 No 4
  • Brahms – Intermezzo Op 117 No 2
  • Chopin – Ballade No 3

I like this program — it’s pleasingly symmetric. I now have a dilemma: do I repeat it on Saturday, and give up my claim to never repeat the same program twice?
