The Playful Virtuosity of Pianist Meral Guneyman – Come Sunday, at the 92nd St Y

But after a glowing introduction from the shows artistic director Dick Hyman, she launched into a powerful solo version of The Clothed Woman, one of several Ellington classics she played that evening with strong emotion and arresting dexterity. Later Hyman sat at another piano and they reprised his challenging arrangement of Solitude, skillfully filling in each others spaces and ending with a touching flourish. http://blog.92y.org/index.php/weblog/item/playful_virtuosity/

Christopher Buckley in Conversation with Tina Brown at the 92nd Street Y

0 Christopher Buckley in Conversation with Tina Brown at the 92nd Street Yhttp://www.92Y.org/lectures

Christopher Buckley, the author of 14 books including Supreme Courtship, Boomsday, Thank You For Smoking and his latest Losing Mum and Pup, joined the The Daily Beasts Tina Brown in conversation on May 7 at the 92nd Street Y.

We dont know what was going on in the dressing room, (http://is.gd/xOkH) but we do know what happened on stage. The talk focused on Buckleys new book, which created quite a stir when advance copies were reviewed. (http://is.gd/xOlm) In the video clip here, Tina asks him about the impetus for writing his latest book, his experiences with his father —whom Tina asked of: He was pretty difficult frankly to have as a father, was he not? …There were times when you pretty much felt you had to kind of fight for your life in that setup, as you described. Well…Im the Park Avenue Frank McCourt, Christopher joked. Of course there was also some small talk about politics.

Tina: Are there any Republican candidates you feel optimistic about for in 2012?
Christopher: No.
