    that's great news. I've been having this pain in my elbow...what's that? A piano doctor? Well, I never.

    That is wonderful, Koji... Congratulations. Few people are able to do what you do; you should be very proud.

    Congrats again.

    Congratulations, Dr. Atwood. Just one step closer to that major label record contract, and then the tour, and the groupies... Give me a shout when you hit Seattle, we'll party at the Edgewater.

    Ummm. Are you the doctor we call for piano tuning?

    My sincerest congratulations. If anyone deserved it, your music certainly did.

    Congrats.  Well done.

    I defend mine in about a week but I am going with a Carlo Franco tie.  So the competition is on Carlo Franco v. FIH.  If I don't pass I'm sure it will be the tie...

    I was told that in about 2-3 years you can stomach to look at your disseration again - just put it on a shelf until then - for me it will be at least that long.  Style Forum has proven to be a great diversion...

    Again congrats.

    Congratulations. (And don't put it on the shelf for too long--you'd be surprised how quickly things change--with the possible exception of certain historical topics and dead languages...) [​IMG]

    That is great news - enjoy - celebrate - have a great time - and we already know you'll look great while doing so.

    My profound congratulations too.  My theory:  Defend while 9 months pregnant; who can beat down a glowing pregnant women.  Not an option for us gents, so a 7 fold tie is the penultimate method for easing a defense.

    (88keys/7fold tie)*sqrt (bulchers size)=p(h|d)=success*1000

    weighted, of course, by the number of Goldberg variations--How many Dr Koji?

    Kudos.

    If only it were as easy as buying a tie... Congratulations Koji.. It's not the defense that matters, it's all the hard work that led up to it. The defense is supposed to be just a celebration of your achievement. And quite an achievement it is..

    Thanks so much for all the sentiments; wish I could enjoy this more, but I'm stuck out in Indiana doing gigs (I'm broke [​IMG] ). My dissertation was on the life and recordings of the American pianist William Kapell, who was killed in an airplane crash at age 31 in 1953. He was the first big-time american pianist to hit the world concert-scene, and his death was a huge loss to music lovers all over the world (he's often referred to as the piano equivalent of James Dean). He was also a Juilliard grad, and my teacher at Juilliard was one of his few pupils, so it was a rewarding topic all around. As for being a "doctor" (a pretty much useless appelation in the music world, I"m afraid), I suppose I can ponder and contemplate deep thoughts on being unemployed. koji

    I've always been partial to the Richter / Sofia "Pictures": do you think it's worthwhile for me to get the Frick Collection Kapell too?
    Maybe just for the Copland (I have John Browning and like that version)

    Interesting article on Kappell in the NY Review of Books issue of March 24, 2005.

    you never know - I knew somebody who made a nice living teaching music history and writting books about it, while allowing himself and his family the time to enjoy their music. good luck to you.
