Inspiring words are a good match for Bach's Aria from the Goldberg Variations

http://arioso7.wordpress.com/2011/12/25/when-do-i-play-my-best-an-inspiring-message-from-seymour-bernstein/

 

Seymour's playing in this tableau is divinely beautiful. And having sampled the pianist's artistry through many of his posted You Tubes, I wonder why he didn't get the recognition he deserved during his formative years, playing in public.

At least now, at 85, he's enjoying a renaissance of interest in his teaching, music-making, and musical/life philosophy.

Words fail to describe this inspired outpouring of poetry to the music of Bach. It arrives as we approach the New Year with renewed hope for Peace and goodwill.

Be sure to sample Seymour's many performances on You Tube:
