The Inspirational Peach

A peach and two tomatoes that need ripening are the focus of Maxim's practice.  Since it is his theory that a  musician's energy goes somewhere, not just into space, Max entertains the fruits for several hours with a practice routine that includes fragments of his concert program, Pink Panther and Mozart.  He does not sit, but paces the room like a lion.  Instead of an audience that might feel better following a concert, a peach and two tomatoes will taste better.  We'll test this hypothesis at dinner.


  1. so how were the tomatoes?

    I'm trying to contact Andrey Rubtsov as I am interested in getting sheet music for his Marbella Fantasy but the contact links and email address are not working. Could you please help me in contacting him?

    Thank you!

  2. It worked! Ripe tomatoes and ripe music. I hope you heard from Andrey by now. If not let me know.
