« on: October 31, 2020, 02:56:18 PM »
One of the oddest pieces within the oeuvre of a notoriously eccentric composer!

Home recording from yesterday.

Glad you both liked it, I think it's pretty appropriate for the day in question!

Very interesting piece! Thanks for sharing.
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

Thanks. This entire set of 49 (!) miniatures, the Esquisses, is well worth looking at.
