Tomorrow is Mother's Day. Tomorrow is also the annual Spring Recital for all of my music students. I chose to hold the recital on Mother's Day many years ago for several reasons. One being that fewer activities are typically scheduled on that day; and two, it is a nice treat on a family-oriented day.
Each year I will normally play something at the end of the piano recital. Nothing big or fancy, but just a pleasant way to end the event before we move onto the reception. Yum...chocolate cake!
Since a couple of folks asked about videos of the recital (hi Cheryl and Connie), I thought that a short video of my song might be nice. I wasn't sure how the sound quality would come out but it seems to be acceptable. My hands are hurting today (darn RA) so I hope that Brahms doesn't mind too much any notes which get dropped.
So here it is. Intermezzo in A minor, Op. 76, No. 7 by Johannes Brahms.
