Liszt La Lugubre Gondola II (1882)

This piece is the 2nd gondola. I think the #1 is better known, but I like this one.
People who make music together cannot be enemies,at least while the music last.

Beautiful piece - and playing, as well.  Maybe a hair slower?  It's less austere then the first one, isn't it.  More accessible to the ear, in a way.  Liked it very much.

Hi fbt,

You played this piece very well capturing the funereal and at times eerie mood.

Interpreting music means exploring the promise of the potential of possibilities.
