Murph: Am quite surprised anyone would have looked into it.
Remember, he died in 1804 (?), so his writings are 18thC German.
The translations can often be gooey, but he reamains, arguably, the cornerstone of critical though and writing.
For a quickie zoom-in, get right to the "disinterested response."
It's where our self-assessment of 'I like/I don't like' thoughts can and do get ambushed by, well everything. Not "uninterseted" in hearing your take on it.

Sweet Jeezus, now we're reading Kant.

So, I guess we're saving Descartes for next quarter, then?

LOVE having you here, Bob!

I tried her out since Marina liked her. I could see listening to more of her stuff, whenever she has more.

At the risk of appearing less refined, I still fit a bit into your original category. Solo piano continues to be me least favorite, but not necessarily disliked, instrument. I can appreciate amazing piano talent from poor, in multiple genres, but if given the choice between a solo piano CD and any other solo instrument, I'll almost always go with the other.

Piano mixed into a orchestra, jazz group, rock band etc. is a whole other matter. I generally enjoy what it adds as a piece of the bigger puzzle so I'm not sure why it's my least favorite solo item. No need to analyze it I guess, one likes what they like.


To be honest, I am enjoying the Art Tatum solo piano a bit less than the Oscar Peterson Trio. I can listen to Keith Jarrett and enjoy his solo piano playing, but I usually only listen to a few songs at a time before moving on. With classical music, I prefer a piano backed by an orchestra. I enjoy the talent of Alfred Brendel. I have gained a deeper appreciation for the instrument since my daughter has learned to play the piano and I have one in the house.

I like it, too. Definitely has an 80s vibe to her sound.

But you would do just about anything that Marina asked you to.

Except perhaps to kill Regina Spektor.

I would be concerned how ever if Regina asked you to knock off Marina. \:\(
