mozart's sonata #14 in c minor, as performed by andras schiff.
i love this piece, but i found andras way too rushed in the first few minutes, while his overall dynamics throughout and feeling in the slower/softer middle section nice. eventually he relaxed, and nailed the end passages. maybe his fingers just slowed down after a workout, giving it that somethin somethin.
it bugged me tho, to listen to wolfie's piece given a rush job; i could hear (in a self-aggrandizing way) what mozart meant, each phrase needed that "just fractionally off the downbeat" touch, to make the measure stand up.
andras needs to listen to a little jazz, and chug a pitcher before he does this again. wolfie was all about technical excellence, but never forgot his emotions. that's what made him better than salieri, and every other breathing human. (btw, the movie is grossly innacurate, tho f. murray abraham and the guy from animal house were great in it)
gb, or anyone else into mozart (cara?) whaddya think? and if you could, pass it on to your grandpa for evaluation.
A true lover of nature does not despair now that his mistress has turned a colder cheek.
