dannylux - Sergei Bortkiewicz Prelude in F# Major 33/7: Message Board

dannylux's Comments

Listening to the music of Sergei Bortkiewicz (1877-1952), so filled with Romanticism and love, one would assume he had an easy life. The truth is he had many difficulties, including being in the middle of a Revolution in Russia, World War I in Berlin, and World War II in Vienna. We are lucky any of his music survived the wars.

Of his "playable" pieces, the Op.33 No.7 Prelude in F# Major is my favorite. (By playable, I mean playable by a person of average talent.)

Meant to post my last response for the Prelude No. 8, the waltz, down with your recording of it rather than here. Sorry for the confusion.

Rachfan 2010-08-21 16:13:51 Hi Mel,

This piece is an ultra-romantic waltz, and you play it stylishly. I've also recorded it, so know the challenges. This is a fine performance!

Rachfan 2010-08-21 16:11:56 Hi Mel,

You played a very thoughtful and beautiful rendition of this prelude. I've recorded most of Op. 33, so know this music well. I always think of No. 7 as an operatic aria. Very nice!

Carey 2010-08-20 22:22:21 Well done, Mel !!
Mike 2010-08-20 09:27:35 Simply gorgeous!
