San Francisco Salon Shindig

  • This location is shown only to members

Please join us for a salon-style conversation cornucopia.  Meet other salon-istas for spirited discussion of the arts, philosophy, history, social trends, travel, current events, high- mid- and low-brow culture, and more.  Talk about religion and politics strictly unforbidden.

Bring your wit, your wisdom, and food or drink to share -- because no one can be talking all the time and you might want to have something  else to do with your mouth during pauses.

    Unexpectedly I had to work on Sunday and had to cancel many hour before the Salon as much as I hated to have to do that. I'm happy to see it was still a great success. I do look forward to the next one. Wish it was twice a month instead of once a month.
    Cheers!

    @Raj Here are two Youtube recordings for your appreciation. A mazurka by Ysayë, for violin and piano. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5KHMZBfHXM
    This piece, performed by an incomparable virtuoso, displays almost the full spectrum of violin's expressivity.

    A piano study by Scriabin:

    The sound quality is quite bad in this recording, but this is a live recording and the best interpretation of this piece found on Youtube so far.

    I'm just leaving a memorial for the father of a close friend. I'm in Rhonert Park!! I'm not going to make it with my champagne for you. So sorry! Perhaps next time. Never guessed that a 3:30 gathering would go three hours!!!

    Seems that Muni cancelled the bus I was going to take, so I'll be 15 min. late. See you soon!
