I agree absolutely. That sounds awfull, when such a great person is called in this way. First I wanted not to pay attention on it. But it's impossible!!!

What festival do you mean exactly? 'Cause there are so many of them... "The Stars of White Nights", "Musical Olimp" and so on. Nevertheless it's great that you're coming! 've never been to USA though enjoy travelling. In the beginning of June I'm leaving for the trip to Scandinavian countries.

By the way - I always wanted to know - are there lot's of abilities to hear the pieces of prominent russian composes in the concert halls of USA, Canada, European States etc. ?

Pianist, do you still practise speaking russian?

Yes, Russian music is performed a lot here... I actually went to a concert just the other week that was all Russian repertoire, it was really amazing.

I also agree about that Rach name. I think most people use it because of the movie Shine where his 3 Piano Concerto is always called the Rach-3. Why don't we call Mussorgsky 'Musso' or Prokofieff 'Prok'?

I disagree! Who says that Rachmaninoff wasn´t some sort of a pop star back in 1900?

Lol, this reminds me of a time about a year ago, when I performed the Allegro Scherzando from the Sonata for Cello and Piano with my sister (me on the cello, her on the piano). A few days later, one of the guests remarked to me, "I really liked that song you played. Who was the composer again - Rock Martin or something like that?" :shock: :D Wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry on that one. Rock Martin indeed... :lol:
