I think I have 5 or 6 of her Schumann Concerto recordings lying around, including one made when she was 11 years old (on medias like LP, cd, dvd and blu-rays).
I had thought that everyone would just ignore that post, but I'm happy to meet another Martha fan here.

Yes, her Rachmaninov 3 and Prokofiev 3 are out of this world, there is no other way of putting it. I have a few of her Schumann concerto recordings as well (not six though).

Re: Music Thread

Not that anyone will care (except for angrilu perhaps ), but here's some more Martha Argerich. Take it from me folks, this is legendary stuff....

The complete third Rachmaninov concerto. It's been recorded countless times and by many great pianists, but many consider Argerich's version the best ever. For years this was only available as a bootleg, but it got an official release by public demand as it were. Listen and worship.




The complete first Tchaikovsky piano concerto. Charles Dutoit who was Martha's husband at the time conducts.




And the first Prokofiev piano concerto. Her interpretation of the third is truly legendary, but this one is pretty awesome as well.

Cutest bass player in bass player history? I nominate the following:

Paz Lenchantin


Rhonda Smith


Katy Goodman


Lyn-Z


Tal Wilkenfeld


Sadly, none of these ladies, nor Tina Weymouth, can honestly be called "the cutest bass player in bass player history." That honour belongs to this guy. Remember, he was the "cute Beatle."

Re: Music Thread

Time for listening to the newest British invasion LITTLE MIX who won X-Factor UK 2011 - now in the US for the 2nd time this year. Here are a couple of their hits in the UK. Even if I'm an old guy I think they are great - well because they can sing like in this Change your life one of their own songs:



And their #1 hitt from last summer coming later in US - Wings also their own creation



But what they are most admired for is their acapella songs - here is one We are young:



Well in my humble opinion the new Spice girls or even greater

"Wings" is a song by British girl group Little Mix. It was co-written by the group in collaboration with Iain James, Erika Nuri, Michelle Lewis, Mischke Butler, Heidi Rojas and the song's producers, TMS. "

Well, there's enough co-writers in there for a whole football team. That's usually the way Simon Cowell gives 'co-credits' to his reality groups, which doesn't write their own songs (see One Direction).

Just saying

Thanks for the correction - I must admit that I haven't been so deep into the songwriting part, but heard that they had made it together. Well I just like them singing and I think they do that quite well

Re: Music Thread

Speaking about music, Simon Cowell and X Factor and Little Minx, as their 'mentor' was just in The SUN.

Tulisa exposed as a drugs fixer ... now wanted for questioning by the police .. ( can't say I'm the slightest bit surprised, but the undercover journo's tapes are hilarious ) .. At one point Tulisa says 'You can't tell this to anyone' ... and she's being taped for the world to listen in ... then goes on to brag about, how she was running drugs as a teen.

Re: Music Thread

Simon Cowell egged at Britain Got Talent



Is there a phone-in vote, so I can vote for the woman who threw eggs at Cowell as the winner?

She egged him as a protest against his influence in the music (she should have used something heavier than just eggs, if you ask me).

(This being the music thread and the clip is about Simon Cowell and from one of his 'talent' shows, am I now in violation of thread topic?)

Well,hopefully MY endorsement won't discourage you, but I think the post above was superb.A friend told me that her daughter wanted to learn English so that the youngster could follow what was spewed by Cowell's creation,Numb Erection...and my response was that mi amiga should tell her daughter that English was extremely difficult to learn and caused painful mouth and throat maladies for foreigners due to the oral contortions necessary for pronunciation.I also suggested that lots of people lead happy,healthy lives w/o learning English

To continue with your theme that egging was TOO delicate and humane,I've often said that,if you're going to apply the death penalty(the moral issue is a separate question entirely),then the gringo method of lethal injection is totally asinine.La pena muerte should be a brutal deterrent...as one can see in the Old Testament and as the Romans did,to great effect, with techniques such as public crucifixion.Would leaden ball bearings satisfy your requirements for Cowell projectiles?

Re: Music Thread

^ You're in luck, Bruce. I believe his dancing clowns are in Mexico City now. (at least that's what a British tabloid said).

(Yes, I know my name calling is pathetic and behaviour well below my age, but I ReAlLy hate Simon Cowell, everything he stands for and anyone and everyone affiliated with him - so I cannot help myself).

As you'll see from a glance at the map, our nation is a bit larger in physical size than Jolly Olde England is, and Ciudad Mexico is about 20 hours south of here by car...far enough away that the mindless din known as Numb Erection won't audibly carry all the way up here. My guess is that the concertgoers will break down something like: 98.8% horny adolescent girls(ages 12-15);1.2% everyone else.

If I can offer you a ray of joy as you use your imagination, try to picture Numb Erection(N.E.) trashing one of OUR hotel rooms.As you might guess, justice moves slowly here so their handlers might have to wait an hour while bonding the spoiled lads out from jail.....just long enough for them to have a 'meet and greet' with some of our convicts who haven't seen their gfs for a while.Most of the thugs aren't bilingual, so that would give N.E. a chance to work on their Spanish skills. Perhaps they could even "sing" while some cholos press them face first against the side of the jail cell.......just a little something to ponder

I would like to send this one out to a certain Danish lass after her sterling and commendable effort today:
