Apparently if it wasn't for Mendelsohn, he would lay forgotten.

My father was born in 1903. His first (beloved) wife died in 1945.
He met my mother playing in a local orchestra in about 1948.

He commuted 150 miles to have lessons on playing Bach
from James Tring.

With my brother, we traditionally played the Bach Double
each time I returned from boarding school.

More anon.

David

PS you might diagnose some reason why I connected
so strongly with Jack Nicolson in Five Easy Pieces:)

Default Auspicious beginnings(qoute from five easy piece?)

Suspect that the Bach I just posted might have been edited as well.
Still, the way Tchaichovsky goes from normality to despair
as his intrroduction takes some beating.
Although IMO you can't beat the intro to the Beethoven.
(A Henryk Szering recording was my baptism).

If you would like to know how tedious "In Terra Pax" can get.

Default Beethoven Op 130 "cavatina"

Don't know who is playing this, but I first heard
it in Oxford Town Hall by the Amadeus Quartet.
I feel no shame in saying this movement moved me to tears.

That's interesting. The first chamber music concert I went to was in Hobart just after we were married & was given by the Amadeus Quartet. I can remember it vividly. Works by Haydn, Britten and Beethoven were on the program. A while ago now :-(.

I can tell you exactly the group playing here. It is unmistakably the Quatuor Végh led by the great Sandor Végh. I have checked it against my CD. If you want to try to track it down, it is volume 7 of their cycle of the complete Beethoven quartets on Valois Auvidis V 4407. Should be mid-price or cheaper.

THX again for the response.
My mother was at thr RCM with the the Amadeus.
Reputation has it that she once sat in for the cellist.
Wartime. Wouldn't like to say anything futher.

BTW they (the Amadeus) notably retired on the death of Peter Shidlov.
