Olga Scheps embodies Chopin's Piano Concerto No 1, e-minor

Olga Scheps embodies Chopin's Piano Concerto n° 1

           For a pianist who ponders her prey

The taming arms-length erect posture
The torso and pulsating violin back encased in red-rich ornate coarse wrap
Nape muscles strung by swaying grace-groomed arms branched aloft
Pursed lips part for allegro romp
Tensile gushed groin screaming on seat-edge flailing fingers
Averse to sleek chord whale case under knee-cap check

Who is the Master of the indomptable Mistress
Does the script express and extend the actress's role
Or trundled chords liberate hidden Polish voices yearning

Cabriole on prairie pastures
The yearling kicking high on the keyboard
Startling the chevron-sinewed munching herd
Light lambs and kids throwing frolicking fits 
Round and round the heifer humping high down the meadow
Stung to the quick half-recurring bars of the theme
The feline fauve now appeased by soft churning cuddles

Pages of screwed signals hung on lined sign-posts
Roused by nut-cracker knuckles
Flush out repartee collective timbre strings
Doused by the sweet-sweating triumphal orgiastic release
The wilful eyes of the hungry panther
Turn soft and pander to the prey

Is this when the poised moment of the composed kill
Misses the mark         just once
The sleek black whale bears its twinkling teeth
                                                       in hollow rage

Hi ! Robertina ! Greetings from Gaie Paree ! You are far too kind. I'd rather - I insist - you deal out such hyperboles to Chopin and, here, Olga Scheps. Just curious, did you take a listen to her performance of the piece? Wasn't that really way out? Only a masterpiece and a masterful performance could give such overwhelming pleasure. Thanks a million. Every good wish. Wignesan
