More of Nahre Sol's "In the style of" creations. I may have posted this lot some time ago, but it is worth another listen.

Yeah. I particularly like her Debussy.

I don't have his recording, here is the concerto.

So there he works, still at large
Behind his smiles and his camouflage
Of nice white coats and college grades that
Hide blue suits with golden braids
And though I hope the smell just fades
It does not go but leads to raids on
Bamboo huts in country glades
Where the people use the grass for blades, ain't that something

Dominus vo-bisque'em Et cum spear a tu-tu, oh!

More jazz but OK, it can go here.

These were actually vocal pieces, but hard to find the originals. Maybe I can find it.

Martha Argerich is a living legend. She gave her first public piano recital when she was eight years old, playing both the Mozart No. 20 and the Beethoven No.1 piano concertos.

Last June she turned 81, and she is still touring. Her current program includes Prokofiev's third piano concert. Here she is playing it in 2018.



Her repertoire is vast, and she plays all of it without looking at the score.

Have you seen the documentary her youngest daughter made about her?

More piano porn à la Argerich. Snippets from some of her performances between 1965 and 2017. If we're lucky she'll still be at it at 90, like Arthur Rubinstein.



People who complain about all the crap Youtube dishes out only have themselves to blame. They search it using the wrong keywords, and then they are surprised when the site's algorithm offers them more of the same. If they entered "Martha Argerich" instead, they'd be rewarded with a cornucopia of treasures. Instead of Steven Crowder, The Young Turks or worse, Youtube suggests great music and cute kittens to me. OK, so sometimes it sneaks a John Oliver segment or something like that in, but that is digestible in small doses.

rare arrangement for violin, cello and organ. Quite a number of Bach works have been done like this

Performance starts at 08:30.

I'm sure the musicians' hearts are in the right place, but listening to three minutes of the enthusiastic amateurs' attempt was enough for me.
