Grazie! Corrected. Glad you're watching. Typing too fast. Must slow down so everything "registers" more properly!

Lance,

It seems a lot of major pianists died on January 26th - Friedman, Hungerford, Darre and Browning.

I only wish that Friedman had indeed lived, and played for the 114 years you gave him! (I believe he actually died in 1948.)

Yes, there must've been something in the stars or planet arrangements to take all these great pianists.

And you are, of course, quite correct, in the passing date of Ignaz Friedman. What would I do without you folks to keep me on my toes. Maybe I better start checking my fingers. It's a good thing I'm not performing Liszt's St. Francis of Paola Walking on the Water these days! :D
