It is becoming my summer tradition to learn something fun at the piano. Last summer, it was the Chopin Barcarolle; this summer, it was Debussy’s L’isle joyeuse.
For years I fantasized about playing the Chopin Barcarolle. Now I have and am ridiculously pleased with myself. (video)
Another video, this time dedicated to Edie Windsor & Thea Spyer and their big, romantic love.
I haven’t posted a piano video on YouTube in awhile, but I’ve started doing that again. There are a number of reasons for the delay, mainly because I was trying to sort out my thoughts and feelings about doing these kinds of performances.
My brother asked me to send him a picture of the piano after it was delivered. I did one better: I made a video of me playing a Chopin etude that I learned years ago . . .
