An desultory blog aimed at passing on some of the wonderful free classical music that has come my way. These range from restorations of vintage recordings to concerts from the internet.

Takahashi Aki plays Feldman's Triadic Memories
If all you know of Takahashi Aki's playing is the astonishing recording of Feldman's "Piano and String Quartet" you will already know what to expect here. Yes, she recorded more – but it's almost impossible to find the recordings. I am indebted to a fellow enthusiast in Japan who originally uploaded this disc. The links are now defunct, so I feel obliged to upload it myself to make sure that it's still somehow available.
The playing has the stillness you would expect from Feldman, but it has something more, something like rapture.
