Re: One of Rachmaninoff's pupils

HiIMarianne, Actually I talked to her last night. She was thrilled to see part of the concert on You Tube. I only found out last night that I had the only copy. I will be getting some copies made up.

Re: One of Rachmaninoff's pupils

My friend/piano tech Kong Ju Lee and I posted some of Ruth's 2003 concert in Japan on You Tube. There is only 8 minutes of the concert on there. The entire concert is all 24 Chopin Preludes. This DVD is not commercially available. Ruth gave me her only copy.

Re: One of Rachmaninoff's pupils

I had lunch with Ruth yesterday. I don't have the time to give more than a little outline right now but first off Ruth is indeed retired from concert work. She speaks softly so that at times I miss a word or two but she has two trips coming up. The first is a trip to Korea to teach some master class...

Re: One of Rachmaninoff's pupils

Marianne, Yes this DVD is still being sold today. You can order it from Amazon.com, so I don't know if it should be posted on You Tube. I know that one of the places she is going is Korea. One of her stops she will teach a master class. I will ask Ruth what she will play, I was going to ask anyway. ...
