90 today.

I enjoy his Schubert interpretations.
Today on radio they mentioned that he also writes poetry, related to piano. They read two of his poems. I didn't find them online.

Anyway: Here's some Schubert.


My grand piano is a Yamaha C2 SG.
My other Yamaha is an XMAX 300.

I've always loved his Beethoven, but in the last few years I've come to love his Schubert. His Mozart is fantastic too. I think he's one of the greatest of the great.

Alfred Brendel makes me want to put band-aids on my fingers. His Beethoven is legendary, and I love his Liszt. Even his late Mozart is unparalleled, and he deserves his comfy little place in our world - he earned it.
