A favorite ...

... in many respects. Valentina Lisitsa is one of my favorite pianists. It was wonderful to meet her at a party in Alexandria, VA 5 or 6 years ago, and most thrilling to watch her and her husband play Rachmaninoff duets.

This is also a favorite arrangement of a favorite Schubert melody (I have a lot of favorite Schubert melodies) and a wonderful piece for the season.

Doesn't it sound like she must have a third hand here? ;)

  1. This is absolutely marvelous. We listened to (and watched) this piece as well as the Hungarian Rhapsody. Tomorrow we'll check out more!

    1. I'm glad you all liked it, crafty1. I have a DVD of hers (autographed) that I can lend you. I'll bring it next time I'm your way.
