Steinway. There's an app for that!

Check out the free iPhone app from Steinway. It's a very clever metronome for your smart phone. And it's skinable - from Bubinga to Ebony. Added plus, you can tap out a tricky bit of rhythm on your phone and it'll play it back for you. Brilliant! 

Check it out!

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet

And speaking of Paris... Here's something really lovely to start your week out right. Bavouzet  does Debussy like nobody else. Enjoy.

Love the "Hipstamatic" app for the iPhone.. Does it ever take a bad picture? This photo was actually "accidentally" taken while fumbling about with the phone.. But, hey, I'm not complaining .

Q & A: Awadagin Pratt

Interesting bit with Pratt.. And extra bonus for anyone attending the concert: he'll be playing surprise treasure Schumann's "“Variations and Etudes on a theme of Beethoven”, a work  first published in 1976! Read it all here.
