Gramophone! And look who's guest editor? Nicola Benedetti!
Interview with Claudio Abbado. Article on Yuja Wang. Yayyy.
And my fav: PIANIST. Paul Lewis on Beethoven! *diiies* and Fanny Waterman on musicianship - interpretation and phrasing.
Seriously, what more can I ask for? *happy sigh*
I'm looking forward to BBC's August 2010 issue: The 20 greatest pianists, playing fast, a review of the best Shumann's piano concerto recording by Jessica Duchen.
Now. How in the world am I'm gonna get my hands on that issue?
People in KL! *hint hint*
Btw, I also got this for a wicked RM 49.35:
Hal Leonard. Mozart Piano Concerto in D minor K. 466. Comes with orchestration accompaniment CD, so you can virtually play with an orchestra! Awesome stuff.
I also bought my bro A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. Publication by Collins Classics featuring:
1. Life & Times - fascinating insight into the author, their work and the time of publication.
2. Glossary of Classic Literature - useful words and phrases at your fingertips.
And it was so cheap! RM 9.90.
Haha. It will be useful when he prepares for his SATs, and really, just for the sake of literary enjoyment and appreciation.
I love you Midvalley MPH and KLCC Kinokuniya.
