arabesque-art

Some French classical music for you tonight! I’m revisiting Debussy’s 1st Arabesque that I played some years ago. A lovely piece! I’m dedicating this piece to Eleanor and Luc in Cambridge/Oxford, fellow musicians. The piece has some flute and harp like melodies ;). Hope you like it!

Time for a Bond theme, not any!

“sightreading” (I’ve played it a few times before ;)).

Dedicating this pianathon entry to my friend Liz and her husband Anthony. Hope I’ve picked one of your favourite Bond themes. See you soon!

 

Pages 62-66: Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata -1st Mvt

First Beethoven piece of the pianathon 2016!

I remember first sightreading this piece during a visit to our good family friends in Dijon (in the early 2000s I think ;)). Dedication goes to the Auberts: Martine, Ivy and Anouk as well as the extended families. J’espere que le morceau vous plaira. Une pensee forte pour Philippe.

Hi everyone,

It’s winter in the north hemisphere, time for some winter classics and a first Disney song for you: Let It Go from Frozen! The song was the 5th best selling song of 2014 with the very famous piano solo bars :).
