This entity has been a favorite of mine for years, and it finally has a record! The YouTube videos are mind blowing too. If you love people who believe they died long ago and have been reanimated solely to preserve the blues tradition through virtuoso piano skills, then join me. #professorbones#blues#piano#neworleans
Tive o privilégio de conceder o Colar de Honra ao Mérito Legislativo do Estado de São Paulo ao Maestro João Carlos Martins, um dos maiores pianistas de todo século XX. Um momento único, histórico e especial. Obrigado, Maestro! O senhor que tanto honrou e continua honrando o nome do nosso país nos quatros cantos do mundo é, sem dúvidas, uma grande inspiração para todos os brasileiros. Destaco também a participação do talentosíssimo @davicampolongo, de apenas 11 anos. Você tem um futuro incrível! #alesp#homenagem#maestrojoãocarlosmartins#davicampolongo#piano#musicaclassica#sp#nossomandato
Our impressive friends over at the @sphinxorg have launched a brand-new blog celebrating composers of color. #Blackhistorymonth may be one month long, but there are countless composers, musicians, and works to celebrate year-round!
Today, let us begin by flying into a distant star, blissfully crashing into it whilst engulfed by ecstatic light ☄️💥💫✨
(Thanks #Scriabin 😌💜)
As promised, here’s more clips from the Monument concert!
To perform for you inspires me to keep pushing, to keep growing as a musician, to take everything to the next level... 💯💯🚀 So, thank you for being here, whether in person or via IG— thank you for being part of my 🎹 journey and listening 🎼🎶💕
As a token of my gratitude, this time you get a 2-for-1! Clip of Scriabin, as well as some Liszt (continuing the Mephisto from before... wait for it 😁)
For the curious, here was everything else I played on the program:
Bach - F minor P&F (WTC I)
Liszt - B minor Sonata
Liszt - Mephisto Waltz
(someone gave me those lovely flowers at this point! 💐💐💐)
Ravel - Jeux d'eau
Liszt - Rhapsodie Espagnole
Rachmaninoff - Etude Tableaux Op 39 No. 8
Ligeti - BkII Étude No. 13 "L'escalier du Diable"
Scriabin - Sonata No. 4
Such a fun couple hours 🎵
Thanks @groupmuse for making all this possible! Seems I may play another soon, stay tuned.
Now to go back to practice...
