Default Schubert again

I won't let go, I am like a dog with the bone....
Schubert wrote already at an early age symphonies...one after another...as if he would know he had only until 31 to compose.
One of my favorites is that jewel of his 3rd symphony,written when he had just turned 18. Not played often....enjoy !!!
It is like sunshine breaking into one's life once that clarinet plays that main theme...

The conductor of this orchestra made the piece memorable. He was so immersed in the melody... the way It should be. What I would do to have that musical ear .

Chopin remains to be one of my favorite composers of the romantic era. This is one of my phone ring tones: Chopin Waltz Op 18 No 1 - YouTube

Another piece making headway in my Ipod today:Berlioz ?Symphonie fantastique - YouTube AMAZING STUFF!

I`m sure Mozart can enlighten us with his technical knowledge for I am but a humble listener,enraptured in the melodic beauty of this masterpieces.

Thank you Mozart for all the musical knowledge you impart upon us.

SB.

ps: In honor of Berlioz and Chopin, let`s have a toast with a Grand Cru,Cote de Nuits wine. A la votre! Cheers.

That wine will do
I'll bring the cheeseboard out, raw milk Roquefort, Manchego, Wensleydale and --the king of cheese--Reggiano Parmigiano.

Default Krystian Zimerman

The young Krystian Zimerman was one of the most stupendous Chopin interpreters ever. Here is a rare version of the Waltz in A flat Opus 34/1,performed at the International Chopin competition in !975.
Glorious sound and crystal clear approach. Probably never been surpassed.Chopin / Krystian Zimerman, 1975: Waltz in A flat major, Op. 34, No. 1 - Live Recording, Warsaw - YouTube

Default Moritz Rosenthal ( 1862-1946 )

Here is a glimpse into what Chopin playing used to be: pure poetry and a velvety sound . Rosenthal was born only 13 years after Chopin's death and a student of Mikuli, a student of Chopin.
Recorded in 1934 this recording is magical as it creates the illusion of turning the piano into a singing instrument,overcoming the fact that it is--technically--a percussion instrument ( Hammers hitting strings ). Rosenthal was a grandmaster in that art of that illusion . A Houdini of the piano.This is one of the greatest documents of the so called Golden Era of piano playing.

Im having a laugh here, thinking of Mozart uttering "thank you, Strawberry Bitch" haha quite the contrast, eh?

It sounds like a wonderful occasion to partake with the finest food, excellent company and savory food. Well, sans the cheese or animal products (vegan), but we will improvise for sure.

The Gardel piece stroke a deep cord in my heart as I grew up listening to tangos and milongas; my grandparents love tango and taught me how to dance when I was kid. Here is one of my favorites by him :Adiós Muchachos - Tango - Carlos Gardel - YouTube . Did you know that to this day, tango music plays at Gardel`s tombstone-- great way to be remembered, right?

As always, the Chopin selection was great.

Thank you for sharing!

How thoughtful of you. Thank you for the vegan add-on`s

If you want, you can tell me which songs you would like translated; I can do it . :)


ps: Which musical period are you more partial to? I have a slight suspicion that it may be the classical,hence the username, but musical minded people are known to be capricious in their preferences. Just curious ;)

Lets make a toast in honor of maestro Gardel with an Almaviva Chilean wine (quite good, I`ve tried it myself) Salud!
