Lowell Liebermann - Gargoyles op. 29, no. 3
I like the dreamy feeling of this piece by Liebermann.

I had never heard any of Liebermann's compositions before tonight. An acquaintance recommended I listen to his Concerto for Piccolo and Orchestra, which made me curious about the composer since the piccolo isn't often featured as a solo instrument. This led me to his piano music in addition to compositions for solo cello and solo flute. I like that Liebermann's work "combines elements of traditional tonality and structure with more adventurous harmonies." Lowell Liebermann - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That was what my ex-wife walked down the aisle to when she married me and believe it or not, I actually picked it out. It's one of my favorite piano pieces ever.


Not to keep your Chopin Fest going, but I nothing in the world is more beautiful than Chopin's Nocturn in B-flat Minor Op. 9, No.1:

Now, Alicia de Larrocha, one of the best pianists of the last decades, plays Joaquín Turina: Gypsy Dances op.55 no.5 (Sacromonte) and Fantastic Dances III.

Frank Martin - Ballade for Piano and Orchestra



A massively underrated composer who offers a more conservative approach to techniques used by the second Viennese school.
