Episode 85: Franz Schubert and the Impromptu in Gb Major

Sunday, October 20th, 2019 classical, Romantic, Piano | Comments

"I like playing in F major, but I like singing in F#!" ~Tim Minchin

Appropriate this week as our piece is in Gb! Schubert's lovely, if challenging, music had a lasting impact!

Episode 84: Sir Edward Elgar and the Imperial March

Sunday, October 6th, 2019 Romantic, March, Turn of the Century, Piano, English | Comments

A lack of good native composers had been the phantom menace to the English people until Sir Edward Elgar came on the scene! He brought about the return of "good" English music and provided a new hope for the composers who came after him! Be sure to subscribe and share with a friend!
