opus109:

Hello again!  In case you were wondering what I named this blog after, this is it!  

I still remember the first time I ever heard this piece - its really burned into my memory.  I walked into the piano department to find my professor and an older student watching a performance of Claudio Arrau playing op. 109 on a vhs.  The performance was absolutely arresting.  I was changed forever.

HELLO FAVORITE I get so happy when someone else is also obsessed with this

This is music that just fucking falls out of thin air like it was always there and then, like, floats away as if it never was. I am a huge fan of the way Arrau executes that, at the beginning and very end of this performance.

I am not sure how I feel about his tempi in the third movement though. Much slower overall than I am used to… I think I liked that for some of the variations better than others but also a couple of times I felt too much space between variations? But I am unqualified to decide how much space is too much, obviously.

Hi neuroimagining , I am happy you enjoy this piece too.  I actually really enjoy the tempi he decided on, but I am happy to have discussion on the matter!  What is your favorite recording?  Maybe I can compare artists and come to agree with you?

Oh yes let’s discuss! I think that my favorite is András Shiff’s, but I also think that’s very likely just because it’s the first one I heard. But he’s a bit more moderate in the last movement and not quite so… resolute? I feel like that lets the piece sort of wash over my mind the way I want it to. But maybe if I let my mind slow down a bit then Arrau’s would have the same effect. …Maybe he’s just telling me I need to chill out a bit :)

Just one of those things that I always wondered about. Stags and otters are all very well, but what if you end up with a tiny chameleon or giant blue whale? I mean, it could be a giant tub of nutella…

Anyway, so glad I got around to doing this pic -drawing the less attractive animals was awesome.

Popped it up on Redbubble because they have tote bags and cushions now which is just wow - can grab it also on cards or posters - check it out here!

magikarp tho

lol omg she looks so disappointed with her dumb magikarp patronus

you splash those dementors, magikarp. show ‘em who’s boss

i said to the sun, tell me about the big bang. the sun said, it hurts to become.

andrea gibson, i sing the body electric, especially when my power’s out (via vaerity)

I mean OKAY but the sun is only like 4.6 billiion years old? and the big bang was like 13.7 bya? I mean it took like half a million years for things to cool down enough just to form hydrogen atoms? 

Like we’d be just as well off asking our grandparents about the Mayflower.

Science Side of Tumblr needing the Poetry Side of Tumblr to get its act together please and thanksss
