December 4 - inspired by Isabel Mendes Ferreira's "PIANO", today seems like a good excuse for four pianos among other things.. // 4 pianos, e mais algumas coisas para este dia 4 de Dezembro, em que mais uma vez leio o PIANO de Isabel Mendes Ferreira

Martha Argerich, Kissin, Levine, Pletnev Bach Concerto For 4 Pianos Bwv 1065 Verbier, July 22 2002 




information quoted from Youtube - J.S.Bach Concerto for 4 Pianos and String Orchestra in a minor Rehearsal, Rafael Kubelik (piano and conductor), Wolfgang Sawallisch, Rudolf Kempe & Fritz Rieger (pianos) with the Bayerischen Rundfunks Symphony Orchestra, film from 1972.. (video in 4 parts)



Bach - Concerto for 4 Harpsichords in A Minor BWV 1065 ( video in three parts ) - Trevor Pinnock & The English consort


(next... and away from bach) - The Gershwin Piano Quartet - "An American in Paris" by Gershwin

 The Gershwin Piano Quartet - Wirth's Tango-Fugue based on a work by Piazzolla

The Gerswhin Piano Quartet is comprised of the following Pianists: Mischa Cheung; André Desponds; Benjamin Engeli; Stefan Wirth

 - Now that I'm on the subject of pianos...

.. another keyboard comes to mind, one I thoroughly enjoy - Isabel Mendes Ferreira's Blog - PIANO

 imbued with a strength that seems to have Rafael's touch

 (The Archangel Raphael leaving Tobias-s Family - by Rembrant)

 But of course - in order to fully comprehend the depth of her talent you must learn Portuguese. 

Believe me, it's definitely a worthwhile task


This post I dedicate to the instrument and those of whom I associate it with, with tender care.
