Beethoven: Sonata op. 110. I. Moderato cantabile

Since most Beethoven is served overcooked, I thought I’d offer some raw. I wish I could take back a few moments, but I think it’s in good shape. (I’m dipping my toes back into performing in the coming months.) In any case, I haven’t posted any rep in years, and doing so was always part of the plan. Enjoy!

“Idea for a Barcarolle”

I’d say it’s beginning to look like spring, but the ‘leaves keep falling.

“Winter’s Idyll”

Don’t worry: it’s EZ listening, Salvage style. (Maybe the first ‘leaf without an accidental or modulation.)
