I haven’t posted in a couple of months. Here’s an update on what I’ve been playing over the last few weeks.
Me & my piano
Posts about my personal relationship to the piano
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.
We went to a tango show on Saturday. I found my attention moving from the dancers to the musicians and especially the pianist, thinking “I’d love to play some of that!”
I guess I’ve been good, since Samantha Claus left some new music under the tree this year. So, of course, I’ve been having fun playing through various new scores, and learning more about what playing really means to me.
Today’s playlist was one of my all-time favorite operas: Mozart’s “The magic flute.” All in all, it was a bright and cheery way to start the Sunday before Christmas.
When I was sixteen, I was a Gershwin fanatic. I revisited some of that music today after a thirty-year-plus hiatus.
This Sunday’s playlist starts with one of my favorite horror movie piano scores: the Bach-Brahms chaconne.
This week’s all-dance freestyle playlist is inspired by Fred & Ginger.
Another Sunday morning of sightreading. This week: Feldman, Debussy, Schumann, and Chopin.
