In keeping with the times, and at the urging of friends and musicians – here in the US and abroad – I spent time this weekend creating a 15-minute movie to include the entire sonata, so that a visitor to my blog wouldn’t, in future, have to wade through each of the movements separately, as in my earlier blog.
Of course, the flip side may be the distraction of my photos on view while the music is playing. Unfortunately, I’m no longer able to perform the work myself, due to an accident on September 13, 2014 that caused a fracture of my right thumb. My orthopedist made it clear that it would take at least six months to mend – where after I could, indeed, even think of tackling Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto!
Enough of that, and let’s cut to the chase. Here’s the hotlink for you to access the video: http://youtu.be/5vCRMIkGy08 – and do let me know if it cuts the mustard!
