Patterico's Pontifications


Wednesday Evening Music: Brahms

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:26 pm

I am currently obsessed with this song. And in particular this performance. Listen to it and then listen to it again. Wash, rinse, repeat.

All hail the genius of Johannes Brahms.

  4. Joking aside, it is a very pretty song. I like the piano accompaniment a bit more than I like the signing, but I recognize the virtuosity of both. I especially like the piano bit at the end that starts at about 2:08.

  5. It’s amazing how you can get hooked on a piece and replay it over and over.

    Two vocal performances I always find myself going back to.

    One Catalani by Renata Tibaldi,

    and one G&S by Valerie Masterson.

  6. This is a lovely melody, but hearing it over the Internet connection (at least my less-than-outstanding connection) has the piano overpowering the voice. Still, it’s easy to hear why you would be drawn to it.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.
