    Bruch Scottish Fantasy Op. 46 Mazur, Gewandhausorchestre Leipzig, Accardo (violin)

    I must be in a string kind of mood. So enchanting and wistful... Preceded by Dvorak String Quartet No. 12 (‘American’) Keller Quartet. I know I will get back to Rachmaninov or Liszt or Prokofiev on the piano soon enough : )

    This is popular a title of a 1979 live recording. Surprised no video (YouTube or otherwise) exists. Maybe never videographed??

    Anyway, a decent performance marred by poor recording quality.

    Listening tonight to all of Beethoven’s late sonatas played by Peter Serkin on a Graf fortepiano. A bit of a different experience! Now wrapping up with the Hammerklavier, in the slow movement currently. Beethoven is in no hurry here.

    Added: Serkin's final fugue is a real barn burner.
