Welcome to IWETHEY!

New "Now Hear This [Admin] Haydn: The King of Strings"
Most likely you knew already. PBS natch.

This group of travelling musicians, vituosi all, are simply Charming--the Music and especially the illuminating words about each gem.

(Bonus, history of his/The Anthem of Austria) crafted by Papa H.--thence forever shredded by Nazi corrupt-adoption, forever: the Kaiserlied.
So Sad that such should befall a melody as would survive almost Anything derogatory.
Except 'Murican or German defilement by either's barbarian hordes.

If THIS doesn't tickle the fancy of someone just ~first-exploring the universe beyond transistorized 'instruments' at ƒƒƒ mostly,
then never mind proselytizing.



These sorta limn the patter as occurred with my Lucky-encounters with a family whose childres (well, one of them)
were tutored by, themselves. A singer + instrumentalist raised them. Their mentoring filled in my nascent
enthusiasm--possessed of many ignorance-holes, such that I learned to LIsten, thus experience much
more of the Composer's intent (and realization) ..even in genres I thought I failed to grok at all.
Before their encounter I thought I'd not encountered 'Perfection in any category. Now, I've heard it.

Carrion ..could that be music-by-algorithm as arrives in a one's emotioanl center, D.O.A.?
New Thanks, passed it on
Speaking of Haydn, Aidan is playing a Haydn for his college auditions.

Here's a folder with his prescreening videos - not finished yet but pretty solid. He needs to have them perfected by the end of January for his auditions.

Also, a bonus Rachmaninov in there too!

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Yet another in this Series--this time with students ..all Schubert. But first, Haydn
From fingers through flawless grace-notes (sent via a decent mic + gear): your Lad is playing beyond his years,
doubtless via parental nonpareil, non-hovering (!) assists at certain times.
Thanks for the treats. As to the Rach- a ƒearless young Man, fershure. But is anyone ever Ready-for
Rach-2-Cto? [rhetorical] :-)



All these under PBS's Now Hear this: The Schubert Generation, a series.
Several of these already-viruosi are ~25-27 yo; Schubert died just under 32.
He wrote half of his 500+ Songs before age 25 ... thence: the massive other works.

(Anyone hooked on The Songs could learn a lot seeing/hearing Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's magnificent voice
record, but also observe/hear maybe the most-famous accompanist (ever?) to all of those:
Gerald Moore--author too of, Am I Too Loud? ..a hilarious bunch of skits ..related. It's all Music.

I can't begin to comprehend that Schubert was even Possible. Having heard that which He (or some company of genii?) wrought.

How fortunate that you and offspring are on the same wavelength.. Lucky. lucky.
Bonus here: Listening cancels-flat anything with COVID- or Menace- re some sordid topic.
New Personally I'd rather he didn't follow Schubert's path :-)
I'll pass the compliments on.

The audio setup is based partially on advice from Jack Troughton.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New (Franz and I concur re your wise assessment :-þ
..the Silly! ..unfortunately: he was.

..but for us liederabend fans, he's still a God of Song(s) and as memorable in the not-songs panoply.
(We weep that the trans-Time PayPal can't send him a couple bucks at age ~24--with a stern,
Shape-Up or Ship-Out! appended note).
