Friday musical interlude: a brilliant pianist plays Mozart

November 6th, 2015 at 8:54 pm

I’ve been remiss re musical interludes of late but I’ll make it up to you many times over with this post of the pianist Yeol Eum Son in a breathtakingly beautiful performance of Mozart’s piano concerto #21.

I love the crystal clarity of her touch, the depth she draws from the famous slow movement, and the way her flawless technique is always evident but never distracts from the music.

And what music! It’s like the orchestra and piano are great friends going for a romp in the Austrian woods. The orchestra introduces the theme, the piano picks it up, has great fun with it, throws it back to the strings, and they’re off and running.

Hat tip to AG for introducing me to this gifted pianist.

    I cannot put into words my feelings about this. My brain started firing signals from end to end and side to side. Then I want into a daze of not euphoria but elation.

    My brain goes crazy for this stuff. How has this munition not won more? This is astounding!

    Light my brain! Make it go all wild from end to end and side to side!

    Am I drooling?

      Exactly the response I was looking for…and very much like me own, though I think I levitated a bit…
