Patterico's Pontifications

Sunday Evening Music

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 6:57 pm

Mozart, Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major, K. 503.

As I continue a weekend filled with work, I am listening to this, and thought you should too.

P.S. The state of being preoccupied by work is expected to last several weeks. I am not abandoning the blog, but though the rest of this month and all of May I expect to leave it primarily in the capable hands of JVW and Dana. Please join me in extending heartfelt thanks to them for all they do.

  1. If you run through this one and are looking for more, let me suggest number 24, which I listened to before this one.

  2. JVW & Dana, thank you. Here’s your opportunity to point us all in directions that are both interesting and involve sincere differences of opinion. Best regards to both of you.

  5. In light of today’s election, might I recommend some solo piano composed by Maurice Ravel.

  6. Gershwin asked Ravel to tutor him in classical composition techniques. Ravel’s answer was to ask Gershwin to teach him how to make money.

  11. Greetings:

    Mozart, he was that Austrian-speaking piano player from old Vienna, and Salzburg, and a couple of more unmentionable places, too, no ???

  14. This wouldn’t work as on-hold music when calling an 800 number. It is too interesting, nd you pay too much attention. And it’s too long for mood music in a movie.
