A couple of years ago, I celebrated my birthday by sending family and friends a YouTube link to a performance that had given me very great pleasure during the year.
Now, at 95, I’d like to do it again. This time I couldn’t decide between two choices, so you have them both:
Mozart’s 24thpiano concerto, performed by Murray Perahia
Bach’s Golberg Variations, performed by András Schiff.
You may or may not share my musical likes. These selections may not bring tears of wonder and joy to your eyes, as they do for me. But whatever lifts you up in communion with the marvels and beauty of human potential, this is the time to keep the faith, to rise to the challenge of our times with solidarity and love.
I'd love it if you would send back to me a favorite of yours, whatever the musical genre!
