I accidentally deleted my original post and I'm in no mood to attempt reconstructing it. The problems I've been having with Blogger lately are enough to turn me into a homicidal maniac. Or a reasonable facsimile.
here are two of my old piano recordings that I made in Los Angeles when I was in my early 20's.
The first is a 1907 ragtime composition entitled The Shovel Fish, by Harry Levi Cook (1878-1953).
(I'm assuming a shovel fish is the same as a shovelnose catfish).
The second is the Piano Sonata in D minor op.31 no.2 by Beethoven - nicknamed The Tempest.
(this is the first movement)
Note: it's not very pleasant to see a smiling fish hovering above Beethoven's head, but that's the only way I was able to download these music files from Soundcloud.
