The first comment cracked me up, "I like it fast". I do too. My understanding is that this is how it was originally written. Blows my mind that people are capable of this sort of thing. I want to see her type. Always impressive to see people who have devoted their lives to perfecting their craft.



(See my post a few down). My Mom schooled me. She got this email about the same time I posted it.

Those wonderful long fingers! I have short tiny fingers, I wanted to play guitar and piano and...bah! useless.

K so my Mom just schooled me.


Well, a sonata is a multi-movement work. The Moonlight Sonata is in three movements...the famous "Adagio" (which means "slow") is the first movement. This youtube is the third movement, a Presto (very fast).



I am, of course, utterly delighted that you are considering classical music. Your father made a similar discovery. Oddly enough, the composer who most captivated him was Beethoven.

You might also take a listen to the Bach Brandenburg Concertos, and Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. I used to play them for you when you were a baby.


Source is my email. She threw THIS in for good measure.

My Dad called him Beath Hoe Ven. There was also Batch. I don't know what he would have done with Vivaldi. This was done to irritate my mother. I'm still amused even though I know now she just pretended to get irritated.

ROLL OVER BEATLES!

I stopped breathing for 6 minutes and 47 seconds... and was in musical heaven all along. Wow.

Very impressive, thanks for posting!

It's just magical what humans can do when they put all of their heart into it.

This has always been my absolute favorite classical piece and I am not a fan of classical music.

Utterly transcendent. Will the future ever bring us another composer able to master the art of controlled chaos so beautifully?

Ha, my point precisely. While present day is not void of musical ingenuity and grace, it is definitely not a characteristic of mainstream music. I admit I find some radio hits catchy, but they never reach the precipice of musical genius. I guess that merely is my humble opinion though, and it is all in the ear of the beholder.

Hmm.

I don't like it. I mean, it's technically BRILLIANT, of course, but I don't like it. It feels like all the emotion has been sapped out of it.

...but then, this is my favourite piece of classical music (and I feel like even this rendition is too fast):

Many people including myself believe that Beethoven was the first true rocker and this proves it.


Peace

You can still play both guitar and piano with short fingers.



Anyone can play with enough practice. The only thing is, most people aren't willing to invest the time to become skilled.

I used to be able to play a portion of this and would play it slow and fast for fun. It's amazing how the tempo can completely change the mood... I preferred it slow because it was more haunting, but this is pretty awesome as well.

Beautiful!

A few missed keys...ok maybe 2, but gee wiz, she's good.

Makes me want to break out the keyboard and play again.

How does three blind mice go again?

Lol

Thanks for sharing

Piano was the rock music of the 1700s…



No way those stuffy versions are how it's meant to be played.
