  • The Philadelphia Fans of Classical Music

     My interest in classical music exploration has increased as a result of attending about 5 meetings. I frequently feel invigorated by exposure to the group. I admire the knowledge of the members.

     The MEETUP of Nov. 20th/2015-PIANO HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEASON-was quite an edifying, insightful gathering. Ms. Ruth Craxton mentioned how short Alicia Della Rocca Was (Only 4'9"), when I described her performance of the Beethoven 4th PC at an AOM concert from the mid 70's (I had a commanding view from a great seat , and raptly observed her extraordinary technique: She sat contentedly poised on the edge of the piano bench, leaning ambidirectionally while playing, to extend her reach , balancing herself by nearly standing on her right foot to do so. Her touch and timbre (Even her facial expressions) were reminiscent of Artur Rubenstein's, with that same sense of calm, intuitive control, and, like Rubenstein and all great virtuosi, she was possessed of a nearly "Promethean" dynamics sense). Kudos to Jim Bondelid for his erudite analysis of the Brahms B-Flat PC, and the adept insights he shared with us on Rachmaninoff & his Preludes,Schumann's "Karnival" & his Berg bio. & keyboard playing

  • The Philadelphia Fans of Classical Music

     A thoroughly enjoyable group. I'm sorry I couldn't stay for the potluck & to socialize more, but the evening of Shakespeare readings for which I left, was well worth it, too. My best to all, see you in the fall.
