You have probably noticed the new look of the site! I am experimenting with a new theme that is wider and gives me a bit more flexibility with my layout. There were a lot of things I liked about the Freshy theme, but I was just a little bit restricted by the narrow form and only one column for widgets. I have been looking for an acceptable three-column theme for a while now, but nothing gave me the features and look that I liked about Freshy. Though it is not perfect, Mystique does have a lot of what I was looking for, so I will be giving it a try for a while. Let me know what you think.
Also, check out the new Featured Video: Creston’s Fantasy is kind of my arch-nemesis in the solo literature. I love this piece, but only when the soloist is accompanied by an orchestra as it was originally written. The piano version loses the interplay of timbre that makes the bi-tonality work. Instead, it just ends up sounding like bad atonal music. Robert Kaip does a very fine job in front of the Hungarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.
