These are all great. I wanted to post a song my school's band played called Arabesque, but I can't find any decent recordings of it. I also played it at an all-county band and got a recording of that, but it sounded awful(it wasn't a very talented group of people) plus I lost the CD

Default PS to Schubert ( no music )

letter from 31st March 1824:

"In a word, I feel that I am the unhappiest, most miserable person in the entire world. Imagine someone whose health will never improve, and who, in despair over this, makes things worse instead of better, whose brightest hopes have come to naught, to whom the joy of love and friendship can offer nothing but pain at the most, who is in danger of losing his enthusiasm (at least the sort that inspires) for beauty, and ask yourself if that is not a miserable unhappy wretch? I spend my days joyless and friendless, and only Schwind visits me sometimes and brings a ray of those sweet days long gone..."

and his last letter,November 1828,two months after composing the String Quintet ( see link for its slow mvt. at previous post ):

"Dear Schober,
I am ill. I have eaten nothing for eleven days and drunk nothing, and I totter feebly and shakily from my chair to bed and back again. Rinna is treating me. If ever I take anything, I bring it up again.
Be so kind, then, as to assist me in this desperate situation by means of literature. Of Cooper’s I have read The Last of the Mohicans, The Spy, The Pilot and The Pioneers. If by any chance you have anything else of his, I implore you to deposit it with Frau von Bogner at the coffee-house for me. My brother, who is conscientiousness itself, will most faithfully pass it on to me. Or anything else.

Your friend,
Schubert "

Default Once upon a time....

Johannes Ockeghem (1410/1425 – February 6, 1497) was the most famous composer of the Franco-Flemish School in the last half of the 15th century, and is often considered the most influential composer between Dufay and Josquin des Prez. In addition to being a renowned composer, he was also an honored singer, choirmaster, and teacher.

Just finished listening to the Mahler, Schubert, and Ockeghem works. All amazing. Here's some Shosty Shostakovich - Piano Concerto No. 1: Allegro moderato - YouTube

Default Gabriel faure

One of the composers dearest to my heart always was and will be Gabriel Faure. His refined and subtle music is unique,quite different from any other French composer in flavor and style.
Amongst his many substantial chamber music works the 1st piano Quartet is one of the crown jewels. Here is the last movement in an exquisite recording from 1935.
