Unusually, for when listening to Beethoven, the ears did find the eyes were competing for attention.
That seems to do the trick, because latest when the eyes are shut the ears can hear what the lady still has to learn.
To slow down a bit, perhaps?
At least my ears say: Yes.And to treat the keys a tiny bit more tenderly. ;-)
I'm deeply grateful that I have lived long enough to hear and to see Anastasia's fiery and soulful interpretation of Beethoven's 3rd movement of the Moonlight Sonata. God is good! And the friend who put the video on his blog, knowing I would come and listen. MERCI!
Oh! I am surprised, Claude. I thought my ears had detected some flaws.The more I am glad to read you enjoyed.
You're probably right! I don't know that much.I admire anyone who can play it. But I prefer Anastasia to Valentina and Kissin. Maybe Horowitz is the best. But I would like to see him, not just hear him. I've been told that Beethoven said, "To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable." I used that so often at my music lessons. My teacher (a nun) would laugh and say, "I just hear the wrong notes, Claude. Where is the passion?" :)
