If I could get to Denver on February 1 I would go hear Peter Cooper play Strauss.

Just so you know. (I do have a Rigoletto rehearsal from 1:00-4:00 that day. I guess that could also be a problem.

Oh … but he plays it on February 2 as well. Anyone want to donate to the travel fund? 😉


  1. Only if the travel fund includes money for me to go too! Have you heard him play this on his CD? My favourite performance of the Strauss…of course I’m a little partial to my former teacher. 🙂

  2. I have that recording. He’s wonderful! I wish I could say he was my former teacher too. Ah well. I wish I could say he is my current teacher too. Double ah well. 🙂

  3. Didn’t he play that only a couple years ago? How often does he play it???

  4. I see no problem with playing the same piece in different locations, Cooper. I’m not sure why that’s an issue.

    If he came here, I would hope that would be the piece he would play, so I could hear it live.
