One last post about teaching/learning:

Today one of the youthful four-hand pair volunteered that the Stravinsky piece they were playing was like a pelican.

I expect I will be smiling at this for quite a while. I suspect that both she and her partner will develop a special feel for this piece and probably for whatever music of Stravinsky they will hear in the future.

From now on I will shift the focus of this blog to performance, mostly of contemporary music.
