Music Appreciation Monday: Ravel

Posted in Uncategorized by Laura on February 16, 2009

This video being in black-and-white, its opening really reminds me of an old horror flick. I keep expecting to hear shrill screams as the camera pans out to show Frankenstein’s monster attacking a beautiful blonde as our hero (obviously, the violinist) rushes to her side to defend her.

But I can assure you that none of this happens. I hope enjoy this monster-free performance of Ravel’s Tzigane by Polish violinist Henryk Szeryng.

    So, were you inspired to take out your violin?

    The Professor has been getting out his violin fairly often in the last couple weeks (he’s working on learning some music from a video game he likes), and *that* has inspired me to get my violin out a lot more. Why, I must’ve played three times in the last two weeks! (That’s more than I did all year in 2008…)

    It would be a shame to give up the violin, as much as I’ve always loved playing it. Having a baby around has almost made it easier to want to play, because she seems to enjoy listening.

    I enjoyed this piece and especially liked the piano accompaniment!

    I am also glad you and [the Professor] are getting out your violin. I am SURE Savannah enjoys it!
