So far this week, with swell style and amidst a crazy-busy world that has gone ADD, I have:
Two days remain in the week, and as we all know, much can happen in a short while, especially in downtown San Francisco. The French composer Poulenc, very popular in the 1930s, saw it coming, this hyped-up society of ours. Oh, you must listen to his epic double piano concerto, and tell me if he didn't forecast our crazy age of cellphones and Crackberries!
- Launched a new website: www.marketsquare.com
- Returned to my four day per week fitness schedule that I abandoned years ago
- Solved my 7-year tax mess with the help of two tax attorneys and wound up with the largest IRS refund I've ever seen.
- Finally got to meet my favorite Noogler over dinner at Old Krakow
- Chose another digital piano which will replace my old broken Roland
- Finished writing a formal complaint that I will file with the State Bar of California
- Volunteered for a neighborhood safety watch program
Francis Poulenc: Concerto in D minor for Two Pianos and Orchestra:
I. Allegro ma non troppo
P.S.: Extra bonus points if you can name the two pianists whom I saw perform this concerto live.
