  1. Gandalf waved me in! Amédée-Ernest Chausson kept me hee.
    Thank you, Marina, this is most enjoyable music!
    Have a fab weekend!
    WOOF! xoxoxoxo

  2. Oh, Marina – what a tragedy. He had such a gift. I read that he began composing his String Quartet in C-minor in 1898. He had started writing the last moment on the very day of his fatal bicycle accident on June 10, 1899. Thank you for remembering. I am unable to connect with videos on my side of the world,but I am familiar with his music.

    • Imagine how much more work he would’ve produced. I will try to find another version with Heifetz to add that will hopefully be accessible.
      Many hugs, my dearest Rebecca!
