You've all been patiently reading my thoughts on various political issues. Just to show that this is a multi-purpose blog, I've created my first YouTube video and have embedded it here. This is a Beethoven sonata that I'm particularly fond of, and I hope to perform it in a few months on a joint recital with my son Jeremy, who will also play the piano and sing. We'll be raising money to help fund his trip to the UK this summer as a People to People Student Ambassador.
In the meantime, though, I just like this music, and I thought some of you might enjoy it as well. If you're curious, the passage from about 3:14 to 3:28 is the one I described recently on Facebook as "one of the strangest passages of tonal music ever written."
Enjoy, and happy spring break!
