[Please note that I like to perform, and I’m not expensive!]

There will be a section on Rudiments of Music of interest to students and teachers.

We will always post information on performances by yours truly:

• In Albany, New York, and the greater Capital District

• At Conn Ranch, St. Helena, California, in our own outdoor Music Amphitheater (capacity over 100), where I have my 6-foot Chickering and the new 7-foot Hamburg Steinway. [Yes, for six months every May through October no rain falls—outdoors is OK!] and

And there will always be information on the available CDs. So far:

(FC-01) All-Grieg: Sonata, Holberg Suite, selected Lyric Pieces
(FC-02) The Well-tempered Steinway—J.S. Bach: the 24 Preludes from the Well-Tempered Clavier Book I, the four Duets, eight of the two-part inventions, and the three-voice ricercar from the Musical Offering. All on a modern piano, tuned in an unequal temperament of the sort used by Bach
(FC-03) Three American Gs (Gottschalk, Gershwin, Gould)
(FC-04) Introduction to the 19th Century: Seven Pieces or Collections by Weber, Beethoven, and Schubert
