“What he knew, he knew from books, and books lied,
they made things prettier.”

My new melody called “You’re For Me, I’m For You” that I wrote for my dear friend @da.ria.k to her wedding day.

Robert Schumann - Album per la gioventù op. 68
*RAGE OVER A LOST PENNY INTENSIFIES*
It’s actually warming up here again. I do like the snow; it’s pretty. It’s the biting cold and icy roads I detest.
The most CURSÉD video that my sweet, virgin ears have ever beheld.
This is extremely necessary for all of you to see.
Lyapunov - Transcendental Etude no. 6, “Tempête” (1905)
“Tempest”. It is not surprising to hear that the Russians loved Liszt’s music. While conservative German voices insisted on maintaining traditional forms, Liszt wanted to go beyond said forms to allow for more expressiveness and spontaneity, in a way rebelling against the German tradition that was promoted as “the best” or the “ideal” way to write music. Lyapunov’s 12 Transcendental Etudes were written to be complimentary to Liszt’s own etudes of the same name, and act as a homage to his pianism. Liszt had originally planned on writing 24 etudes in all major and minor keys, which would have been a nod to both Chopin and Bach, but he only wrote 12. So Lyapunov wrote 12 in the keys that Liszt did not get to. When I hear the phrase “Transcendental Etude” I’m always taken in. The idea of a work written to challenge the performer, to convey a poetic idea, and to flow out in a way that comes off as effortless, always amazes me. This etude is the most popular of the set, and it opens with a dramatic flourish with heavy growling in the bass and whirlwinds up high. A lot of emphasis goes toward heavy handed octaves and polyrhythmic decoration under the lovely right hand melody, exactly what you’d want from an expressive and passionate Russian pianist.
