Tribute - Mezzo Soprano Elena Obraztsova


Through my various work projects with Maestro Francesco Siciliani-former Head of Italian Radio & Television, the Festivale di Sacra Umbra in Perugia, and also Milan’s opera house, Teatro alla Scala-I remember a comment that Mo. Siciliani’emphatically made to me that I and Mezzo Soprano Elena Obraztsova should meet and sing Verdi together. I did meet Elena at some point later, and, true to Siciliani’s prediction, we hit it off like two compatible souls. She was her own person, artist and singer, and she set her own precedent. This, God knows, is surely my devout credo as well! Happily, life has a way of serving us people who are harmonious in goal orientation and zest, Maestro Siciliani no exception, and these people gratefully coax our spirits to mambo and tango! And so it was with Elena Obraztsova, who has left an indelible thumbprint on all she pursued and touched through the arts. She was a great value to the world in her lifetime, personally and artistically, and will continue to thrive in memory

Summer Message for Gerd





“Now Summer is hot,
Whether you like it or not,
And Summer means beaches
And that means tight breeches,
With bodies all trim,
Toned up and quite slim.
Full of smiles of esteem,
In the Sun’s happy gleam,
Each flaunts his own stuff,
Sometimes showing the buff,
But relaxed and quite free,
As it really should be,
Because less is a bummer, 
Than enjoying this hummer, 
And the days and the plays
Of a most beautiful Summer.”  JM

New Year's Zest

“The entrance of a NEW YEAR
Chimes with the greatest cheer.
It’s all about that which conquers,

And quite less about that which falters…
There’s encouragement of unfilled dreams
And visions of that esteemed.                          
Nothing wants to be easy peasy,
But looks toward vast and quantum leapings.
There’s an ending to the old,
With hints of things untold,
A slate of resolutions,
And devoutly new solutions,
A diet here, a promise there,
And a time for passions felt with new found flare.
It's not a time to settle for less,
So look forward with a ZEST for BEST!"


Tuesday, December 24, 2013

Christmas Time

That once a child on earth did reign,
Christmas comes every year again.
Coming from highest tent in the stars,
Santa brings gifts to all the world.
Santa does celebrate happy the day,
That Christ child in the crib did lay.
The Christmas lights are all around,
Wake ringing bells and organ sound.
Santa will come to rich and poor,
All people are HIM ever so pure.
Thank HIM then fine and praise HIM above,
For you, HE offers so very much love.” JM

Obituary - The Legacy of Van Cliburn Lives

The death of pianist Van Cliburn today underscores a legacy that will set example and live on in pianistic grandeur.
The INTERNATIONAL TCHAIKOVSKY COMPETITION in Russia brought Van Cliburn's path and my path together, as first pianist and first vocalist in history to win the GOLD MEDAL in piano and in voice, in that historical competition, even though we did not win the same year.
The importance of winning the GOLD MEDAL in this enormously prestigious competition, during the Cold War between the US and the USSR, not only added spectacular importance our individual professional abilities and paths, but made history between the US and RUSSIA.
Van Cliburn's predestined DNA and talent for the great Russian Repertoire celebrated a towering insight and passionately sovereign technical ability and sensitivity, which cannot help but continue to live in splendor!
