Johnny in OKC What was your first tune? (57* d) RE: What was your first tune? 20 Mar 04

At my first piano recital, age 8, I graced those present
with the following selections from my vast repertoire:

   Edvard Grieg ... The Sailors' Song

   Ludwig van Beethoven ... Für Elise

   Robert Schumann ... The Wild Horseman

Note the exquisite balance between the virile and the
more sensitive, combined with a thrilling dénouement.

I was received (as I recall) with a thundering Standing
Ovation, and three curtain calls.

At the same recital, my sister, age 6, played
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, all three movements.
She doesn't play any more.

Love, Johnny
