During the last 20 days the italian pianist Emanuele Delucchi played in two occasions the entire set in Milano (first public performance as far as I know). The videos of the performance has been put on youtube by Delucchi : (1-12) (13-24)

The other two sets (25-36) and (37-48) will be posted in the next days, stay tuned !
It was a huge and outstanding task and you succeeded! I will start to listen the performance

Congratulations to you and the italian pianist Emanuele Delucchi

For those having trouble playing videos that are blocked in your country, try Unblock Video Sites - Free Video Web Proxy

Copy the youtube video url and paste it in the box at unblockvideos, choose the New York City server and click on 'Unblock'. It should start playing in a minute or so. People in Asian countries might want to use the San Francisco server, since it's closer to you.

Please let me know if this works in your country. Thanks.

Having used the search button on Pianophilia, I was amazed to find
that the name of Franz Danzi has never been mentioned until now.

He was a contemporary of Beethoven and an advocate of Mozart. Despite
being a cellist, his name seems to be mainly associated with wind music.

But his cello knowledge wasn't wasted, as this excellent E minor Cello Concerto

Reinhold Glière Romance Op.16 No.2

"Why it has never been properly recorded baffles me it is a glorious piece of music." HullandHellandHalifax viewtopic.php?f=11&t=570&p=23595&hilit= ... nce#p23595

Thanks to Brilliant Classics and pianist Gianluca Imperato, here is that glorious piece:

The disk "Glière: Piano Music" also includes the 25 Op.30 Preludes, which are a nice supplement to Anthony Goldstone's wonderful recording. ... ano-music/

And for those who don't know the gorgeous Op.30 No.9 Prelude in E Major:

and the No.10 in e minor:

This web proxy provides a flawless support for all YouTube videos including those with ads such as Vevo (with ads being blocked of course)."

If videos are restricted to the U.S., choose the San Francisco server if you are outside the U.S. (I think that's how it works.)

Jeremy, thanks for the info on unblocking videos. I'm not too sure whether
it's entirely legal, so with the UK's recent clamp down on Kodi users, this
is something I'd be rather dubious about trying out, personally. The thought
of having to eat porridge for the next ten years isn't terribly appealing!

When you watch a youtube video through an anonymous server like unblockvideos, youtube records that the video has been accessed and pays the agreed-upon fee to the copyright holder, in this case, I assume Brilliant Classics. Every time the video is played, the copyright owner gets paid. (This is unlike downloading a youtube video, since the copyright owner gets paid only once, in that case.)

Also, my post could possibly generate some sales of this extremely obscure CD, "Glière: Piano Music". The link to Brilliant Classics webpage has links to purchase from Amazon ($11.99 with free Prime shipping!!!) and others. We are a group of quite knowledgeable piano lovers here; many of us are crazy about Russian Late Romantics and this CD is a must-have.

Anyway, if Malcolm has any concern about possible legal problems for pianophilia because of my link to unblockvideos, then certainly the link and the last three lines of my post should be edited out.

I notice that the Gliere Piano Music CD is available from Amazon UK for £8.50
for the CD and £5.09 for the MP3 file, so it can't be all that obscure.

Maybe the YT recording is blocked in the UK because it was only released last
month, and Brilliant Classics would rather like us here in Britain to either pay
for the CD or the MP3 file. I've just ordered a copy of the CD for my collection.

Regards, Tim.

judging from the very low views on each 'video' piece track for this album upload, seems either people don't search or now know much about him but the music is delightful to listen to. Has a Piazzollian flair int he first album, and the 'easy works' have charming children's pieces quality to them

Tsitsaros: Easier Piano Works ... PvdEDwZVHn
Christos Tsitsaros
Professor of Piano Pedagogy
Chair of Piano Pedagogy Division
Piano Pedagogy

Diplôme Supérieur d'Exécution (École Normale de Musique de Paris, distinction); Artist Diploma, M.M., Indiana University; D.M.A. (piano performance), University of Illinois

Christos Tsitsaros began his musical studies at the Greek Academy of Music in his native country, Cyprus. At the age of 13, he won first prize in the "Keti Papaioannou" National Piano Competition for young musicians of the Conservatory of Athens. Upon completing his secondary education, he moved to Poland, where he studied at the Musical Academy of Lózd and later at the Frédéric Chopin Academy of Warsaw. There, he was admitted in the class of the world-known Chopinologist Jan Ekier. In 1981, he won first prize at the Gina Bachauer Institution Competition in Athens, which enabled him to continue his musical journey in Paris. While in Paris, he apprenticed with renown pianist Aldo Ciccolin and graduated from the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, obtaining the Dimplôme Supérieur d' Exécution unanimously. In 1986, after being granted a scholarship from the A. G. Leventis Foundation, he moved the the United States, where he pursued further artistic development at the coveted Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. There, he had the chance to study with the legendary György Sebök, and received an Artist Diploma and a Masters in Music degree (1989.) Subsequently, he entered the School of Music of the University of Illinois where he attained a Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance (1993.)

Dr. Tsitsaros is equally active as a composer, having won the composition competition at the 1992 National Conference on Piano Pedagogy, which launched an ongoing relationship with Hal Leonard Corporation. Several of his piano compositions have been selected by prestigious examination systems, including the National Federation of Music Clubs, the RCM examinations of the Royal Conservatory fo Music (Toronto), and the Gina Bachauer International Junior Piano Competition. Some of his more recent publications under Hal Leonard include Poetic Moments, Songs Without Words, Dances from Around the World, Sonatina Humoresque, and Lyric Ballads. His pedagogical reserach led him to conceive a technical system geared toward a safe and effective neuromuscular warm up. His Symmetrical Warm-Ups (Hal Leonard 2011), a set of short, transposable exercises, has received numerous accolades in well respected journals and has been showcased in workshops accross the United States and abroad.

In 2001, he was artist-in-residence at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, New Mexico; the same year, he gave his New York debut recital at Weill Carnegie Hall. He regularly appears in workshops and conferences as a performer and lecturer in Europe, the United States, Russia, and Canada. Some of those events include the National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy, the Music Teachers National Association Conference, and the International Conference on European Music Education (St. Petersburg, Russia.) In May of 2013, he was the invited artist/clinician for the prestigious Korean Association of Piano Pedagogy Symposium in Seoul, South Korea. During his Korean visit, he lectured and gave masterclasses in major universities in the Seoul area.

Dr. Tsitsaros is also an editor and recording artist for the G. Schirmer Performance Edtions, specializing in the educational works of Joann Sebastian Bach. Four albums of his original compositions appear under the Centaur Record label (1998, 2007, 2011.) The latest of these recordings, featuring his "Cahier Tango", a series of twelve character tangos for piano, reflects his interest in the Argentinian tango. All albums have elicited enthusiastic reviews in various international music magazines.

More recently, he was honored as 2014 Distinguished Composer of the Year by the MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) for his piano composition Three Preludes for Solo Piano: A Mythical Triptych (Hal Leonard, 2014.) Dr. Tsitsaros presented the winning composition at the 2015 MTNA National Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
