Like Norbert, just dropping in to say hi and to bump the thread up to the top! grin Been so busy that I almost can't believe it's already March of the new year.

I just discovered there is more to piano music than my beloved Bach – there is a whole new world in repertoire from late 19thC and beyond. Looks like I can skip the Classical and Romantic periods laugh

Well, you can't if you were going to take an exam or something. Anyway, I told my teacher since I am middle-aged, it is time I do what I really want! I think appreciating different music might be one of those seasons of life things; perhaps I will suddenly like the Romantics when I am in my dotage... wink

You hardly look middle aged! smile I do agree with doing what your heart desires; life's too short in any case.

Bach and early 20th century are often a little too intellectual for me. smile But perhaps I will grow to love them in time to come. smile

Given that our projected life expectancy is 100 years ...

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/1977733.stm

You do mean she is middle aged i.e. 50 years old? So if she looked younger than her actual age ... you mean she looked 49?

Middle-aged is sometimes quite vague – depends on your hoped-for life expectancy, BUT... age tends to show earlier on women, and later for men, because men have thicker skin, mah (I am not making this up)! whome

A friend of mine wants to die by 50 because by then her kids would be mostly grown-up and she doesn't want to become slow and wrinkly. According to her, Michael Jackson stole her perfect death-age! Anyway, middle-age for her would be 25, lor. Btw, she is only in her early 30s so 50 might feel like a long way away...

50 is the new 25. Plus the two people who are complaining about their age really look approximately 10+ years younger than they actually are. smile

A popular verse from medieval Japanese Noh theatre roughly translates (and somehow ties back to the original exchange):

"A man's life of 50 years under the sky is nothing
compared to the age of this world. Life is but a fleeting dream, an
illusion -- Is there anything that lasts forever?"

Haha! When I was 12, I thought I was really old (like being the most senior in primary school) ... so I was middle aged while in Pri 3. wink

And you would be right. We are about as old as we think we are. Hence I'm always 25. smile

I was 29 for many years. Then last year I decided that it was time to turn 30. So I did. Not sure how long I'll be at this age though. Hurhurhur.

I am curious as to why there are 84 pages to a thread about buying a piano in Singapore?

Does someone care to tell me a summary of what happened in this thread? ha

Greetings to All!!

First and foremost, thanks to all the generous sharing posted in this forum.

Can someone please advise me why Wilhelm Tell pianos are not mentioned or listed in Larry Fine's book? (Pardon me if I'm wrong...) Also, any comments on the action or performance of Wilhelm Tell's 125 Bern Silver would be appreciated too.
I've seen and heard the Wilhelm Tell's 132 Zurich and from a novice point of view & aural skills, it seems to be quite a 'beauty' too. So, how would one rate the 132 Zurich compared to say..Yamaha U3 or the equivalent?

Thank you.
