I've just listened to this short section of video, elderpiano - it's interesting, and also thought-provoking.

While I accept that Schubert showed an amazing maturity in his final works, and that he had shown that it was possible to move music in new directions after Beethoven, I still don't see how it was a 'myth' that Schubert hadn't achieved his maturity (or peak). After all, if you die at the age of 31 and are a genius like Schubert who knows what you might not have gone on to achieve.

It does make me want to find out more about Schubert, though. Thanks for sharing. :)

Two briliant pianists in duet (or is it a battle?)

Yesterday, 22nd November, was St Cecilia's Day - St Cecilia being the patron saint of music. Someone on another forum posted this 'grand motet' by Charpentier in honour of the saint & I am listening to it now. It's lovely.

I'm listening to Diego Ortiz at the moment - this YouTube video by Jordi Savall.
I love this renaissance Spanish composer and have played one or two fo his gorgeous pieces on my violin.

Have just come back from my fiddle lesson where we played some gorgeous Playford tunes together - including this first one, Lady Catherine Ogle, by the Broadside Band. We have this cd and often play it in the car when we're driving up north.
