Schubert and links

In between classes yesterday, I decided to perform two Schubert piano sonata movements for Sunday’s prelude and postlude.

For the prelude, I decided to perform this lovely movement. It is one I quite like and have been playing on and off for my own enjoyment for years.

Then I decided it might be nice to play a quick Schubert movement on piano for postlude. Postludes are listened to very much by my congregation. A few people seem to be sitting around and listening. It’s hard for me to tell, because I’m deliberately trying to concentrate on just my playing while the chaos of 200 people leisurely chatting and leaving a room ensues.

This guy plays it faster than I do. I put both of these movements up yesterday. I discovered that the YouTube version of the fast one would not allow embedding. So I just deleted it. I will put this one up instead.

I just tried and it doesn’t seem to want to embed this morning either. Screw it.


My daughter Elizabeth linked me in to this video. I’m very proud of it and her! She’s the good looking narrator.
