  • Hi All,

    I was going to volunteer the Op 118 in A major as well…I guess you don’t need two the same?

    • Hi Dominic,

      I have come down with some bug today - have completely lost my voice - so if I could just see how I am tomorrow. 
      Fingers crossed!

    I feel more comfortable with op. 118 nº 2; but just in case... here another video of Brahms: Intermezzo op. 117 nº 2.

      Juan Carlos Olite Absolutely lovely, Juan Carlos! I hope I can learn to play with the sensitivity, warmth, and color that you express each time I hear you play.

      Dominic Cheli If it is possible, I would like to play live one of the two pieces. Maybe it is better I play op. 117 nº 2, so there will be more variety in the session. Thanks, Dominic!

    Thank you to Jarred Dunn who is one of the most thoughtful, knowledgeable teachers. I always learn so much from his insightful, sensitive understanding. It was intriguing to learn the background and meaning of the title "A Lullaby for my Sorrows". I also took note of the book he mentioned: Johannes Brahms: Life and Letters edited by Styra Avins. Jarred's deep and intense approach to music is always evident.

     

    The way Jarred articulated in the piece Juan Carlos played, the anguish or profound emotional state that Brahms was expressing was extremely interesting and how it differs from others in the way Brahms chose to end it.

     

    And his love of Brahms's music, in particular, shines throughout. I enjoyed this quote that I'd like to highlight:

     

    "That's why I love Brahms so much is that on all his recaps, the second parts of the pieces, you can show a new voicing...and in Brahms, counterpoint for me, God, that's everything. That's why I love everything he wrote." Jarred Dunn

     

    I am glad Jarred was open in sharing his private thoughts about why he chooses to play Brahms (the secret melody) as he does with our community. Yes, we are all quite friends in this community, as Jarred said. Thank you!

     

    As always, Juan Carlos, I enjoyed your playing. I also enjoyed your playing, too, Yuchao. Thank you both!

     

    Thank you, Dominic! You are always an enthusiastic, skilled, and appreciative presenter.
