So remember I mentioned Haydn the other day? My piano teacher has me sight reading one of his pieces?
Well, this is NOT the piece.
I think this piece is so beautifully played! I really love it. So tonight I looked through the two Haydn books currently in my house and low and behold... I don't have the one up above, of course. That always happens, doesn't it?
And of course I couldn't find the sonata I'm playing on youtube... And I figured out why! I thought it was in F Major until I realized that FM has one flat... I was confusing it with DM, which is the key that the song really is in. So I looked up the song and there is a really famous Sonata in D by Haydn so I couldn't find the one I'm playing... Until now. Mwahahaha.
Here it is:
So far I'm only two pages in (until about 1 minute 20 seconds)... It's fun to play. I like Haydn.
I forgot to mention classical music in that music post for the 30 day challenge.... I listen to classical music while I'm writing and lots of other times as well. I love classical music, especially if it's classical piano. Sooo gorgeous. My favorites are "Rustle of Spring" by Sinding and "Prelude in C Sharp Minor" by Rachmaninoff. Oh! Oh! And the "Sonata in D Minor k. 517" by Scarlatti.
My dream is to play it on the harpsichord like this lady:
Ohhhh it's so pretty!! Sadly I can't find the music anywhere....
In saxophone lessons today I got my new Astor Piazzolla book. It's so fun! The first song is very easy but it's all a tease because almost all the other songs are SUPER difficult! 6 flats! I haven't even played in 6 flats on piano yet - let alone sax!
Anyway, I should go. I have a tendandy to ramble on about things and people stop listening after awhile. Music is one of the things I could go on and on and on about. So I'll stop before I get too carried away. =)
Live long and prosper.
