Plan my weekend in Manhattan - Page 10

post #136 of 183
Pollini is the best (at everything, IMO), but he tends to play fast.

The ultimate Chopiny Chopin is Artur Rubenstein.

When is MoMA ever not crowded? The restaurant there is VERY good but VERY expensive. The little side cafe is a good deal, though.

Mark, go see the revival of A Little Night Music. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury. Can't be beat! Manton, -1 on Rubinstein. Horowitz does it bettar.

I was recently at MOMA with two friends and the coatcheck line alone was Soviet-like.

Horowitz is a much more talented pianist, but uneven and undisciplined and (I think) whose bombastic style is not really suited to Chopin. Plus, he recorded very little of it, whereas R recored all of it, and some more than once.

They are propping her corpse up in the show, no one can tell the difference.

Do you think that I should change the location for Manton's 25K Party from the Rubinacci Flagship at the Carlyle to MoMA?

I can almost hear the tinkle-tinkle of the fake ivories of Manton's Chopin encircled by the Water Lillies, Julia Bonk lying captivatingly on the piano, long slim cigarette holder in her hand with a doobie at the end.

We can close with several rotating shoe circles in honor of Monet.

You weren't in the member's line?

Arriving with coats is kinda plebian anyway.

I assume it was for the 33 pieces of luggage, 12 servants and the elephant.

I find the idea of getting out of that place at $275/head a wonderful fantasy.

Indeed. I was somewhat set back by the price. I would figure one of the top establishments in the US, in NYC, to cost far more.

I've visited MoMA in the spring on a Thursday afternoon, and it wasn't too crowded --- there weren't really any lines anywhere.

Mark, if you like Asian fusion, be sure to put one of the Momofuku restaurants on your list.

I regret to say I haven't tried any.

Do you think that the bloom is off?
