The Gift of Music

One of my friends is constantly berating me for not knowing the words to popular R&B and rock tunes. What can I say? Here are some of the ways I spend my listening time…

Awesome video of Horowitz playing Rachmaninoff.

Oh my! Only 7 years old! I was gazing at the piano longingly at that age, wondering how to play “Doe a Dear.”

And this is certainly masterful. What can I say, I’m a fan.
