Hungarian Rhapsody

In a Liszt sort of phase right now.
Can't stop listening to this especially: Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 in C Sharp Minor

And really, Romantic composers + Old Hungarian Melody = Dynamite. Across the board.

Brahms' Hungarian Dance No. 4

Or even
Berlioz's Hungarian March

  1. So glad to see you posting again! Keep it up- I really enjoy your posts! :)

    I love, love, love this first piece. While listening to it, I can't help but feel like I must run off and do something full of passion. Something dark and tragic.

    The second is truly a pity because of the quality of the recording. What I would give to see these performances in person! Though the interpretation is way too fast for my taste, it truly is brilliant.

    It's difficult to have an objective view of the last piece since I've performed it, but it's interesting how every time I hear something I've performed before, I still take breaths in certain places, as if I am sitting in the orchestra, performing. My heart races.

    Now I have to procrastinate on youtube. I'm being a music nerd! ah!

    Thanks for posting these videos! It reminds me how much genius music is out there. Beautiful and inspiring.

    Recently, I've been listening to the Lalo Cello Concerto .
    Most people are more familiar with his violin concerto, but there is something so deep and personal about the cello that I can't tear myself away. Very french :)

    Hope to see a new post soon!


The exchange of ideas is a key part of the human experience, don't you think? I would love to hear from you.
