I'm not playing with you at Leeds if you play everything con fuoco
What sorta language is that to say to a young lady such as meself, Gerry?
Oh Liddy, Liddy, how can I put this politely? Well, you are not, errm, not very... ermm, well not very well educated are you? Not like that upper crust May Ponsonby Smythe. I bet she knows what it means, she probably went to a proper school.
Now if you ask that very nice lady Daisy, (who has promised to sellotape my copy of the Sicilienne together again so that she can play it for me soooo nicely at Leeds) what con fuoco means, she will tell you without hesitation that it means with fire. It's Italian, you know. See, it's a joke about the piano being on fire. There, now you can remember that and when next you meet a musician you can astound them with your knowledge.
Oh never mind
If there's anything left of the piano, Norma I'll have a steak and a spud please. Not too well done for the steak. [Thinks that is a forlorn hope!]
