Thanks Rijko but I'm pretty much unable to play any videos with my setup. Anyway it wouldn't be quite like seeing it live. I would be very interested in what her repertoire was though.

Happy September! Anyone in the U. S. who hasn't heard of our Vanessa probably hasn't heard of any contemporary classical artists. Earlier in this decade, one could scarcely go into a major record store and not see an imposing V-M display. At least the record company was doing a somewhat proper job o...

BTW, Lucia (rhymes with Maria) is 10 minutes older than her kid sister.

I first heard of the trio when they were on the cover of the Sunday newspaper magazine around five years ago. I hung on to it for a while but it got tossed when I moved to Florida. I think the article probably would have mentioned their ages. Have to give them credit for being able to keep it such a...

Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with the Ahns' music to make a list but I know they did Tremors and I know they didn't do the Doors number. Come to think of it, they told me to go to the website about the new CD, and that it's only been released in Korea. And I forgot to tell them I'm an insom...

It seems not many of us have had the chance to attend a current tour appearance of the Ahn trio, so I will add my experience to the list of posts. On Sunday night in Largo, Florida, I got to not only hear but meet the Ahns. Their material consisted mainly of new compositions that were first introduc...

Hmm... how to see Vanessa-Mae videos cheap. You could go to Netflix and get a free trial offer. They have Arabian Nights but not the Red Hot DVD. Does anyone know if that's available anywhere else, like Blockbuster online?

Shineon from one Bond fan to another, to become a V-M addict fast you need to see the Red Hot video, recorded at the RAH (or as I like to call it, the Roy) about 5 years before Bond did likewise. It shows Vanessa is as great a showman as a musician, and undoubtedly influenced the Live Bond. Or for s...

Shineon, let us know what Storm songs really grab you the first listen. And Rijko is right about the addictiveness. BTW, judging from the Bond forum these days, it looks like the quartet's current lack of activity is becoming a catalyst for making the bored and curious into new V-M fans.

Joe_ Mate you are a wizard! You have made my day. As I suspected, I just needed to change colors and everything else was easy. The audio interview is fine too. Rijko, you need to click on Interview and then click each of the numbers for the answers to the text questions. I hope everyone else has a c...

Thank you Joe for your effort. Once again I can't even do the simple 1st step, open Quick Time. All I get is an advertisement from them. I think if I could just get my monitor into 256 colors I'd be fine, but I don't have the slightest clue how to do that.

Thank you MSam but I'm still at square one. I always get lost when they say, simply do such and such, in this case, changing my colors. Like they say, a leopard can't change his spots. :roll:

Doesn't it seem ironic that Vanessa has been recording for more than twice as long as bond yet she is younger than any of them
