Thank You for Moonlight Sonata! I’m playing it on the piano for you now.
With the first touching octave do sharp# in left hand and the wave sol sharp#-do sharp#-mi for right hand the gravitation law is overcame. I am in Beethoven Cosmos – under my fingers is the dance of whirling universes illuminating in the paintings by Ann Weirich.
Adagio sostenuto is at the beginning.
I am an astronaut, aspiring and brave,
In Sol-Do-Mi Sol-Do-Mi waves
The melody of other Galaxy I feel:
Allegretto Movement leads, of course, to the Planet of Immortal Beloved. Beethoven invites us to this planet he created by his love. His Music under my fingers tells the story, I am reading in his letter:
“…my ideas yearn towards you, my Immortal Beloved, here and there joyfully, then again sadly, awaiting from Fate, whether it will listen to us. I can only live, either altogether with you or not at all. …Your love made me the happiest and unhappiest at the same time. …
My everything, you – you – my life – my everything: see “you – you – my everything, my happiness … my solace – my everything”
The planet under my fingers is incredibly light and beautiful.
There are no thoughts,
only heart thinking.
There is no speech,
only heart speaking…
Presto agitato demands virtuosic playing. The 3 movement is technical and emotionally expressive. Playing it is incredibly difficult.
I touch a million tiny stars, planets, comets, meteorites.
They crash and burst –
I am in endless joy and endless pain,
I am in infinitive laughs and infinitive tears.
It almost unbearable, but I can not stop.
I am in Cosmos of millions breathings…
Beethoven opens the door to infinitive Cosmos.
We are all an astronauts there. It is our gift and we are a gift to it.
Please enjoy Beethoven Cosmos! Thank you for this blessing to share it with you!
