Beethoven “Tempest” Sonata Op 31 #2. Lisitsa Canon Camera View

For those who claim to feel “motion sickness” while watching what I see from the performer’s vantage point 🙂 a single side shot with Canon camera – this and GoPro were used to mix the complete sonata. See my comments in the description of GoPro version – in this playlist .


This video just proves that playing piano is just as exciting as mountain biking, paragliding – or just doing silly stuff with GoPro camera as a companion 🙂 Fortunately no helmet is required for piano playing…unfortunately, no good place to conceal it. Ah yes, one more thing – I got unusually large share of “hate mail” for using GoPro for Bach Chaconne. While I never use an argument ” if you are so smart, why don’t you do it better?” for music-related negative comments ( after all it is unfair to couch “musicologists’ who are mostly frustrated amateurs or students, in case of video it’s a different story. I am just as amateur as any , if you don’t like the way the video is done – be my guest :-)))
I post here GoPro view , and in another video in the same playlist – the other , normal camera view. An open invitation to all would-be-critics : instead of unloading your disdain here ,download the camera angles , mix your own , ideal, version and post it on YT. I will be more than happy to see your masterpiece :-))) Good luck!

Great Compositions/Performances: Schumann Kinderszenen Op 15 – Valentina Lisitsa


Schumann Kinderszenen Op 15 – Valentina Lisitsa Haskil Argerich Horowitz Bosendorfer


First edition title page

Kinderszenen (German pronunciation: [ˈkɪndɐˌst͡seːnən]; original spelling Kinderscenen, “Scenes from Childhood“), Opus 15, by Robert Schumann, is a set of thirteen pieces of music for piano written in 1838. In this work, Schumann provides us with his adult reminiscences of childhood. Schumann had originally written 30 movements for this work, but chose 13 for the final version.[1] Robert Polansky has discussed the unused movements.[2]

Nr. 7, Träumerei, is one of Schumann’s best known pieces; it was the title of a 1944 German biographical film on Robert Schumann.[3] Träumerei is also the opening and closing musical theme in the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, starring Katharine Hepburn as Clara Wieck Schumann.[4]

Schumann had originally labeled this work Leichte Stücke (Easy Pieces). Likewise, the section titles were only added after the completion of the music, and Schumann described the titles as “nothing more than delicate hints for execution and interpretation”.[5] Timothy Taylor has discussed Schumann’s choice of titles for this work in the context of the changing situation of music in 19th century culture and economics.[6]

In 1974, Eric Sams noted that there was no known complete manuscript of Kinderszenen
