Reply This really messed with my feels Reply beautiful piece by the amazing Gottschalk! Reply Too bad Rollin Wilber didn't die before mister Gotschalk. Reply Right now, I'm playing this piece in my piano lessons. Among all the classical pieces out there, this is the most ancient-sounding and most classical piece. Reply I picked this piece out for a solo I have to do for school and I love it. Reply Questo brano testimonia il valore di Gottsshalk, musicista colto e popolare, originale ed eclettico. Reply this reminds me of being at some small, European town by the sea Reply It is wonderful to see so many performers taking on the music of Gottschalk. What a treat for the ears. Reply Pure passion Reply I'm a closet homosexual, I know that me saying this means that I'm technically not a closet homosexual but whatever. Reply I wanted to applaud. Beautiful. Reply The poor man's Chopin Nocturne. Reply I am just learning it on the violin. I was doing well but those fast 'clusters' are proving quite tricky 🙂 Reply this is the kind of piece I could listen to forever. the scene constructed in my head, accompanied by the music and the title, for effect… it's so beautiful. each note tugs at my very soul. amazing work.
