Beautiful ...thank you

Reposting this...

My favorite piece of classical music!

L. van Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 1 in C major Op. 15 - YouTube

This piece always lifts my spirit and gives me energy. Great for mornings or whenever you need a lift.

Default Opus 15

That is indeed a wonderfully charming piece . But with the size of lift I need it would have to be performed by Beethoven himself...
There is a pretty fresh and cool performance by a young Glenn Gould of this--here is a rare old film. Not for the faint hearted...

Default Richard Wagner

Finally: one of the giants of opera composing,here comes good old Richard Wagner. His most famous excerpt from the opera : Die Walkuere ( part of the Tetralogy : The Ring of the Nibelungs ) is the Ryde of the Valkyries.

Default Mozart Coronation

Mozart's so called "Coronation' concerto,KV 537 ( its a late style work so Medames et Messieurs we bow our heads here ) played by the great Friedrich Gulda.
In my view this comes as close to perfection as possible. The tongue and cheek attitude by Gulda would have matched Mozart's own.It is btw hard as hell to play. But Gulda ,wearing his magical hat, pulls it off. Much more relaxed and cool than ANY competitiors. His conducting was infamous,but see for yourself....Mozart concerto 26 (Coronation) - 3. Allegretto (Gulda) - YouTube...and ignore the idiotic comments of some you tube users,none of them I am sure ever went near the piece, I have performed it many times myself,so trust me....

Default Claudio Arrau Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 3

Here is a lovely Beethoven sonata played by Claudio Arrau that I found on youtube. I'm no expert in identifying fantastic musicians by any skill other then if I like the music. I like this one. I hope all the rest of you do, too! (It's about half an hour long so listen when you have time.)

What do you think, Mozart?

Arrau is fully approved by Mozart, a grand master he was, heard him many times live. That recital also had a remarkable Opus 111 in the program,Beethovens last sonata . Opus 2/3 is also performed well by Schroeder in Charlie Brown,its one of his favorite pieces...

"The Diver's wife" : she is welcome here,this is an open Forum as long as there is no Pop chart stuff appearing here.
