Rachmaninov plays Rachmaninov - Prelude in C Sharp Minor Op. 3 No.2

from a comment on youtube : "Have any of you heard the story that was written about this piece? After it was written, someone gave it an accompanying story. A man being buried alive. Can't you hear the church bells at the beginning? The somber mood is so well portrayed I can almost picture people standing around a casket all dressed in black. The middle part: waking up underground. Frantic. Clawing your way through earth attempting to reach the surface. All to die just before you reach the top and escape"...

Enjoy !

Love,

Jenny

P.S. my father was playing it when I was young... I was a little melancholic and remembered...

I do not know why... It' s gone Gabe... Maybe because I did put an extract form a text... from a forbidden source...

Anyway...

So I going to tel the story myself... This songs depicts a funeral, imagine in autumn... And then in the middle of the piece, the persons wake-up in his coffin... and realize that he has been burried alive... and it goes until his last breath...

I'ts from Rachmaninov

(Rachmaninoff Prelude in c# minor Op. 3, No.2 )

... My father told me that story when I was young as he was playing it... I remembered today, thinking of himmm

So here is another one... he played... Another souvenir...

Chopin Nocturne Op.9 No.2

Enjoy !

Love to you,

Jenny

Chopin Polonaise Op.53 or Chopin's Raindrops or Tristesse - Chopin or Prelude Op.28 No.4 or Smile by Charles Chaplin or...

I cannot tell you how much I love Chopin! ^_^ When one of my teacher first introduced me to his compositions back in high school, they told me "Hundreds of pianists can play Chopin pieces ; a handful of them can actually play them right." (He REALLY loved Chopin.) I still get a kick out of the Muppets version of Polonaise. Haha

Common Reaction and Nocturnes by Uh Huh Her. Nocturnes is their latest and a great second effort. Their sound is bigger, splashier more confident and assertive. They're also a couple do that's nice as well.

The hard to find, Red Tape by the Atlanta Rhythm Section. Beatles, Past Masters II.

Still strolling through the past -Queen still seems to cover most of my moods and figures large in my playlist.

Which is kind of eclectic including The Highwaymen, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles through Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, The Men They Couldn't Hang, Bon Jovi and Queen with some Ozzy and Theory of A Deadman thrown in for seasoning :D. A newer Ozzy at that. I play them all every day. And more. I kind of like everything except a lot of heavy metal. My Ozzy stuff is his ballads.

Freddy Mercury's death was a huge blow to rock music. He was a pure genius. How Paul Rodgers could ever front Queen is beyond me but Paul was Freddy's first rock idol, or rather Free. Not an Adam Lambert fan but he was a good fit for Queen. Shame the deal fell through. Brian May is a guitar god.

I used to listen to Yes and particularly to the piano work of Rick Wakeman, pure genius. My favorite Yes album was Tales from Topographic Oceans. I've still got a vinyl album of that. I should get it on disk now.

I was listening Deliberately Limited Preliminary Prelude Period In Z when I started typing this, but the theme is now over so I'm re-writing my post to be more accurate.

To simplify, my media player has been shuffling through my entire collection of Helloween albums for a few days. I normally put my entire power metal collection in there, but lately I dunno why I just want to listen Helloween.

I guess that's a bit weird. But I just don't care :P

      Hi Adrianna, This is wonderful news about your coming out to family and work.  as you are finding out, it gets easier as time goes on.  You start to care even less what others think of it, so much so, that you end up telling people you hadn’t even planned on coming out to in the course of your journey.  I had a question about your upcoming Breast Augmentation surgery.  I’m not sure how far along you are regarding the BA but is your surgeon concerned about you not having been on HRT prior to the surgery?  Once you've had the BA surgery and then down the road decide to start on HRT, your breasts can get so much larger than you had planned or possibly wanted (depending on your genetic disposition). My internal medicine doctor said that she wanted me on HRT at least a year if I wanted BA surgery.  I realize that other IM docs or endocrinologists may not be that conservative in their approach.   I am just curious if you’ve had this discussion yet.  In my case as it turns out, I’m not going to have any BA because I am almost where I want to be at 16 months HRT.   Congratulations on your coming out, Susan R🌷

      Thank you very much for your warm welcomes and the compliment. I still have a lot to learn and am trying to be more open, so I will appreciate your advices and guidance and share my stories when I can.  By the way, we are preparing for Lunar New Year holiday (we call it Tet holiday) here in Vietnam as well as some other asian countries and I am so excited.

      Ok, so, I've talked about this on PM some, but for everyone else, my relationship with this friend is totally kaput now. I waited a couple weeks of no contact and then called her to talk, she started things off by saying that she forgave me because she assumed my hormone medication was making me unreasonable (which I do not believe is a fair assessment of the situation). Not really a great thing to say to a trans person, it's kind of like telling a cis woman with a personal grievance "you're being totally crazy, but it's ok because I assume you're on your period." She tried to claim some kind of enlightened, insider knowledge on gender transition and how crazy it makes people because she had been friends with another trans person in the past. This really threw me for a loop and I wasn't very collected the rest of the call, it was obvious I was getting choked up or crying and trying to power through it. She refused to talk about anything and just wanted to "move forward" and make plans for the immediate future without actually addressing anything. I forced the issue and she eventually apologized but was obviously very irritated and really didn't want to.   I called her the next day when I had regained my composure and told her in no uncertain terms that we can forgive and forget and agree to disagree on all the past stuff, but she cannot blame either my past behavior or any future behavior on these nonsense hormone issues she's making up. She got so mad when I said this that she was literally yelling at me over the phone within minutes, shouting about how I wasn't in my right mind because I was hormonal. So that's over!   Jesus Christ, what a nutcase. I am not wasting any more time with someone who thinks I'm a mental invalid who can't advocate for myself. I mean, HRT can cause mood swings in the early stages, but it's usually relatively minor. I doesn't cause people to lose their mind and do and say things that are entirely out of character that they don't mean, which is basically what she wanted me to admit to, to say "yeah, I was crazy 'cuz of the hormones, you were right about everything." My god, I've never been more insulted and talked down to in my life. Good riddance.

      https://www.jta.org/quick-reads/transgender-woman-gives-up-legal-fight-to-see-her-haredi-orthodox-children   This is a real shame, but I understand why the trans woman made her decision.  Shunning in such a close community would have ruined the lives of the children.  I think she made the right choice.   Carolyn Marie

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Michaela.  I love your spirit, and being mischievous is something I'm into, too.  I wish that all spouses were as supportive as yours, so give her a hug for us.  Please look around and have something to say, because we'll be here to read and listen.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, My Lung.  I think you may well be our first member from Vietnam, so that makes you extra special.  Please ask any questions you wish, and join in any of the conversations.  We will help as much as we can.  BTW, your English is excellent!   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      My goodness, that is one of the worst things I've heard @Laura76, and I've been here a long time.  So needlessly cruel and heartless.  Born-again Christian?  Christ would be appalled.  There is nothing Christian about what your family is doing to you.  I'm so sorry.  😢   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Thanks @Jani  I just received a reply email from my ex in response to mine thanking her for driving all the way up here from her home to see my wife and I, and of course, for the nice vase of flowers she brought us.  She wrote that since her visit she has come up with more questions and will be compiling them and will ask at a future date..lol  It looks like she is really trying to learn and understand me though.  That’s more than I expected out of it but it was part of my intention of having her over for dinner.   Update: This just in....as soon as she unpacks she is now having us over to her new place.  So in probably a month, I’ll be back for more..lol   Susan R🌷

      ❤️ My Lung I was very timid here also and did not speak up for a time. I was like Shawnaleigh. I have learned this is a very safe place and you are very welcome here! Your English is excellent! I live in an area where many Vietnamese have settled in the United States. I look forward to reading more of your comments!   Hugs! ❤️   Robin

      I was involved in an attempt to get a trans meeting going in New Hope PA a few years ago.  Unfortunately there were not enough folks in our area, and while some drove a long distance to attend at times it was only one or two of us too often. You are certainly in an area with a larger population and bigger trans community so hopefully that won't be a problem.    The TGAA meetings on Zoom are basically the same as any other meeting.  For a great many people it is the only place they can share about issues they face as trans folks.  we have a literature study program, a Big Book Study, a speaker discussion and a topic discussion meeting.    I have found that the Hazeldon publication "Glad Day", which is covering issues the GLBTQ community faces,  often brings on good discussions.   Hugs,   Charlize
