A lovely favourite :  Schubert (1797- 1828)  - Impromptu Op 90 No 3 D 899 played by Alfred Brendel

Thank you so much for this link, Kristina.  I found out last night that my favorite aunt had died of covid, and this music made me feel better.

Dear MooseMom, I feel very sad for your terrible loss during this difficult time and I am thinking of you and send you my deepest condolences from Kristina.  :cuddle;

Alexander Malofeev (15 years old) on the piano playing:  Sergei Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No.2
Totally breathtaking !
(Hopefully without commercials!)

Kristina, I was conditioned by Van Cliburn's impeccable performance of the Rach 2, one of the saddest of all concertos, but that this kid, at age 15, would have the emotional maturity to pull it off with apparent ease is, as you say, remarkable.

Hello enginist
and many thanks for your kind thoughts. I do remember Van Cliburn as well

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeA8pMGQJ7g

and, of course John Ogdon:

Like yourself I was very surprised when I first heard Alexander Molofeev playing ...  but there again, he plays so many years ahead of his actual age and he also seems to understand fully the great mystifying Russian Soul of Sergei Rachmaninoff ... and I do hope to be able and come to one of his recitals whenever he is performing in London ...  :grouphug;

Here's one for you, Kristina, a little boogie-woogie from a Brit and an American.  I love blues piano.

My favorite song ever.

Hello enginist and thanks for this cheerful piano-boogie-woogie and many thanks burford for sharing this song with us. I listened to it many years ago and remember wondering what was meant with "... Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain" ? (... ... still don't know the answer ...looked it up in the dictionary without success ...)
Many thanks again for sharing ... and this song reminds me about the time when I was walking through the hospital-grounds, passing by the nurse's quarters, where a window was open and this song and "San Francisco" were played on the radio and these songs impressed me very much because they represented to me the free spirit of America and I was sure that one day I would come to visit. Mind you, it has not happened yet, but there is hope that one day ...  and many thanks again for sharing this beautiful song ... :grouphug;

J.S.Bach (1685-1750) - The Well Tempered Clavier: Book I: Prelude and Fugue No.1 in C Major - Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997). The wonderful way he plays the piano is just inspiration at its very best !

Well hello crew!  :)

Not logged in for a while.  Music you want Music we Have.

During lockdown I went to a couple of gigs! :) Streamed. The first the wonderful Nick Cave did a live stream from my hometown of London from Alexandra Palace. A place I used to see every day while dialysing! When I lived in London that is!

Idiot Prayer https://youtu.be/SqySRG_y_l4

Staying in Australia another of my favourite bands The Cat Empire also did a gig. But here's a couple of their best songs.

Brighter than Gold: https://youtu.be/QM_rIaUm7ac

No Longer there:
https://youtu.be/gaROrDZE19k

Also discovered some new music! Gregorian! https://youtu.be/ZK6rpbxth9w
They do a lot of covers!

My husband has always liked old school metal bands (I have, too, but he's more knowledgeable), and he is always on the lookout for new music in this genre.  He has discovered many new metal bands all over the world.  You haven't lived until you heard some Mongolian metal!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM8dCGIm6yc

My personal favorite at the moment is Wagakki from Japan.  Apparently they are incredibly popular in that country and had just finished a US tour before covid struck.  Anyway, what's interesting about them is that they incorporate traditional Japanese instruments in their stage performances, and the lead singer also writes all of their music.  She's very talented and is a lovely pianist.  They have performed many times accompanied by a full symphony orchestra, but this link is to a video of their opening to a 2015 concert.  I was entertained!

During my studies I often met other artists, also one of the best pianists who often played wonderful Bach-pieces for all of us but unfortunately, playing in public Concert-Halls and "laying his feelings publicly bare" was not quite his "thing" and so he rather chose to work professionally as a Tone-Master... Unfortunately though ... he is no longer with us ...
