INDULGE ME




Indulge Me will eventually be a series of pages that I have been wanting to add to this site almost from the beginning.  While my passion, and the raison d'ĂȘtre of this site, is the piano, music composed for the piano is by no means the only type of music I love.  My favorite activity, the comparison and enjoyment of numerous interpretations of a work, is not limited to the piano. 

In particular, music for the voice, songs and arias, are particularly suited to this form of entertainment because of the added elements offered by the actual quality - by which I do not mean good or bad - of the voices, and by the words and a singers ability to communicate on a verbal level in addition to the musical.

Of course, I have already begged you to indulge me with regard to song, but in the context of showcasing accompanists.  In these pages, I will cast any and all pianistic requirements to the wind.  I will offer music simply because I love it.

My plan is to begin with some of my favorite operatic arias and see where that takes me.  I intend to wallow in the delights penned by the likes of Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Puccini, Mascagni, Bizet, and countless others, each of whom has touched my heart in a particular way.  I will celebrate singers, Corelli, Tagliavini, di Stefano, Tebaldi, de los Angeles, and Netrebko, and others.

So, let's have some fun.  Please indulge me, and enjoy what I have to offer.


Below you will find a number of items representing intended pages.  As the pages are created, the links will be made live.  If you have favorites that you would like to see here, please contact me and let me know.



Bizet "Je crois entendre encore" from the Les pĂȘcheurs de perles (The Pearl Fishers)

Mascagni Siciliana (O Lola) from  Cavalleria rusticana









For those of you who enjoy murder mysteries, here is my first with a strong musical polemic as background

Murder in the House of the Muse

which is also available as an audiobook.



And this is the more recently published second mystery in the series:

Murder Follows the Muse
