"Chopin is the greatest" Schiff says "I played much Chopin when I was younger But it's played too often and very very badly I seldom hear Chopin well-played and I wasn't happy with my own playing of Chopin I'm waiting to reach that phase" Pianist Andras Schiff Today: 2 pm at Ed Landreth Auditorium University Drive at West Cantey Street Texas Christian University Fort Worth Tickets: $10-$32 at the door Also: There is a free pre-concert "Cliburn Conversation" featuring author-pianist David Dubai at 1 pm at the Moudy Building Lecture Hall Room 141N across the street from Landreth Auditorium EBo rzamDs 13001tS1r0a DIRECTO:1v ilit as To sell volir 00111AIS iiiitusle To Us HERE'S HOW TO SELL TO US: 1Clem oil your shelves dean out your closet 2Pack up any unwanted boob CDs cassettes :Ps or videos a Bring Them to the buying area of your frialf Ptice Books 510(9 any 11010 we're 0090 4 Receive cash for your books and music FORTWORTIMIULEN 5264 S Wen St W11 FORT WOMB Warr Town Squwe wipeRIC ARLINGTON Spur 303 at S Coopor BOO BEDFORD BIOM Trail at Hamad Al stores open 9-10 Mon-Sat 114 Sun Vocations in Deltas Montgomery St Antique Mail BOOK RACK Over 1600 ef of Used Books First Edition Books Sell 12 Price The Sheriff's Books Trade 2 For 1 Equal Value SiSti Booksellers EST 1975 Audio Book Rentals Treehouse Antiques & Books 2304 W Park Row Art 274-1717 WO Montgomery St Ft W Mon-Sat 10-6 Sun 12-6 5210 Rule Snow NRI-1 656-5S6S To Advertise Ask For Robin Watkins 390-7926 seenseerneremeeneseessenenateeressometsEMEIJ : ::: u::: :: : ' — : ' r:- : :—' '' ' 410004K " 4V Nittiei' '- ' :: 11 07 '' : : : ' : "- '' : : : ' '' 110' p : i i : 04 VI ' ' V 1144 de ':: 11!)
