Hello! Here are today's ears.
In the car, for a couple of short trips to the bus stop and back:
Kasabian - West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum (first few tracks).
Other than that, all listening has been at my desk, in my study. It has been a day devoted to music for the piano. Just the piano.
Chopin - Ballades 1-4, Scherzi Opp.20 & 31 (Rubinstein)
Beethoven - Sonatas 2, 26, 32 (Garrick Ohlsson)
Bach, Beethoven, Chopin etc. - razor blades, little pills, big pianos as previously described (James Rhodes)
Brahms - Opp.116, 117, 118, 119, 79, 76, 24, 35 (Fantasias, Intermezzi, Rhapsodies, Variations on Handel & Paganini etc) (Kovacevich etc on Philips)
Schubert - Sonatas D959, 784, 157 (Lupu)
Last movement of Beethoven Op.111
Bach Chaconne from razor blades...
Brahms Pieces Op.119
Schubert - slow mvmt from D959
For some reason it has been that sort of day. The sort of day where I want to comment about it all, but words are woefully inadequate. The slow movement of the Schubert is a particular favourite of mine. I love that sonata SO SO much. That is all for tonight. If I listen to anything more it will be the Schubert disc again - it's still playing now in any case.
