He was one of my early piano heroes, and I continue to envy his powerful hands. Take five, Dave, take a break. You were Resurrection and Life to me, and you have earned eternal life now.

Here is the song that always fascinated me, Blue Rondo a la Turk. I was delighted to take the AP music exam in high school (1974!) and realize that this very song was on the exam that year -- something about its time signature (9/8). Since I knew the song so well, I did well on the exam. Thanks again!
