Last night I listened to the Minnesota Orchestra play Brahms' Piano Concerto 1 (with Garrick Ohlsson at the piano) and Beethoven's 7th Symphony. Remarkable concert.

Not so "piano" focused, but certainly a treat for anyone interested in music history.

This Aint No Mouse Music Who better to provide Americans with an intro to the roots music of their nation than a German-born count who fled Europe in the wake of World War II?

"...a great film about American roots music and a great "song catcher" named Chris Strachwitz who has recorded so much of our heritage which would have been lost. Many of our favorite musicians idolize Chris and have been influenced in their own careers...I'm thinking of Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt, The Rolling Stones, and many more. Do not miss this movie!"

I picked up a remastered 1971 recording, now on cd, of Bob Milne playing ragtime, so that's my in-car accompaniment right now. God bless the thrift stores!

I listened to Daniel Barenboim playing Beethoven's Appasionata, Moonlight, and Pathetique sonatas. I had never listened to Barenboim before. I like his interpretation of these pieces. I also listened to Glenn Gould playing Bach's keyboard concerto No.4. Awesome.

Fandango by Soler. What would it be nice to have a harpsichord just for this piece alone.
Thinking of playing it on the piano. Not sure how it would sound though!

How interesting, chopinoholic! As I am not a musician, I didn't even know that composer. He lived long ago…so a Fandango from that time, so cute!!!

I've heard now a harpsichord version and a piano version, and like the piano more. Again, I don't really think this has to be very fast. Let's have in mind that people dance Fandangos, and you'd usually get your legs a bit up…impossible if it's that fast.

Often nowadays, Fadango is associated with a style of Flamenco, but Fandango is the name of one of the folk dances throughout Spain beyond flamenco. Here is an example of "legs a bit up" laugh This is a Fandango of Ciudad Real, which is not far from the place where the composer died.

Ok, this one is funny…they didn't want their popular fandango to get lost, and started dancing their village fandango in the 60s and continued. smile

Hi Albunea!
Thank you for the link. It's really nice folkloristic dance. I like it.

I know the piece a long time and it always captivates me somehow. I must say that it suits the harpsichord best. Piano versions seem imitations to the harpsichord. It's a piece written for that instrument.
But not having one I would have to make do with the piano. What shame!

Not really harpsichord…I can understand you like it because that is the instrument or similar where he composed it in? But fandangos are really played with more basic instruments. So this is something else, no matter if harpsichord or piano! smile

There are fandangos in America too, but it is all folklore traditional music, only best kept in villages, so not easy to find good videos of America fandangos now. I am trying!

I've seen now he is known as Padre Soler, and that sounds familiar, probably because he has some street names. laugh He must be very famous for some people.

Hey, I've found a California Fandango! I thought of it because when I said America I was thinking of Latin America, but then I thought…well there could be some in USA too!:

That's something else. My whole family gathered around when I put that one on the screen!

phacke, one for today for the family. It is the opposite side of the coin: very professional folk dance, Irish. The music has a different air, but I see some resemblance with our folk dance in movement of legs, and the stepping of heels.
