some prefer the earlier, more precocious performance in Daruvar (possibly because of more reverb in the recording)

Yes--and that can't be said often enough.

You think that's brave, but this will be my first advanced-balalaika workshop coached by someone other than Andrei.

Also, first workshop with a female. Embarassed

I wonder what she'll say when she sees the broken finger?

Andrei Saveliev told me to "dig my finger into the strings".

Khomenko doesn't really look any older than her picture--just more well-fed.
I taught her new English word "strum," so she doesn't keep saying "bratsaniye" to students.

Right now there is a swirling controversy comparable to the old Clapton-vs-Hendrix dispute--who is better, Andrey or Tetiana Khomenko?

In any case, Khomenko would like to leave Kiev and join Svetlana in America (now is not a good time to be playing a Russian instrument in Ukraine Neutral ).

But if she moves here, who will be first chair--Andrey or Khomenko?

Aaron just performed on open-mic night. Very Happy

He's going to be the next great one--unless on this 13th birthday he suddenly turns into a different person (this has been known to happen).

"Pavlovna" is not a surname, it is a patronymic. "Pavlova" is a surname.

Either "Pavlovna" is Sofiya's middle name, or it's her last name spelled wrong. bounce

The concert was so splendiferous that Svetlana blurted out BRAVISSIMO!

Svetlana never says bravissimo. Shocked

I'm afraid to open Svetlana's emails; she's probably demanding to know my whereabouts.

Svetlana just became a US citizen, which means she is now fair game for fraternization. silent

The architectural theme continues throughout the interior of the palace. The first floor, being the piano nobile, is distinguished by windows taller than those of the floors above and below. Each window is divided from its neighbour by a pilaster. The repetitive monotony of the long elevations is broken only by symmetrically placed slightly projecting bays, many with their own small portico. This theme has been constant during all subsequent rebuilding and alterations to the palace. The only external changes have been in colour: at various times in its history the palace has been painted different shades. In the eighteenth century, the palace was painted straw yellow with white and gilded ornament. Under Nicholas I in 1837, it was painted a dull red, which it remained through the revolution and early Soviet period. Following the restoration work after World War II, it was painted green with the ornament depicted in white, the standard Soviet color scheme for Baroque buildings. (The Stroganov Palace, for example, was also green and white in this period.)

Internally, the palace appears as a combination of the Baroque and the Neoclassical. Little of Rastrelli's rococo interior design has survived; only the Jordan Staircase and the Grand Church remain in their original style. The changes to the interior were largely due to the influences of the architects employed by Catherine the Great in the last years of her life, Starov and Quarenghi, who began to alter much of the interior of the palace as designed by Rastrelli. Catherine always wanted the latest fashions, and during her reign the more severe neoclassical architectural influences, fashionable in Western Europe from the late 1760s, slowly crept towards Saint Petersburg. The neoclassical interiors were further emphasised and extended during the reign of Catherine's grandson, Nicholas I.

Quarenghi is credited with introducing the Neoclassical style to Saint Petersburg. His work, together with that of Karl Ivanovich Rossi and Auguste de Montferrand, gradually transformed Saint Petersburg into an "Empire Town". Montferrand not only created some of the palace's greatest neoclassical interiors, but also was responsible for the erection of the Column of Alexander during the reign of Nicholas I in Rossi's newly designed Palace Square.

For a long time the Winter Palace was the tallest edifice in the city. In 1844, Nicholas I gave the orders to the effect that private houses should be at least 1 sazhen (2.13 m) lower than the Winter Palace. This rule was effective until 1905.
