Longtime Friend & Reader JC_in_PA suggested that I give this one a listen. I did, and so should you. The intro (i.e. the part before Khatia Buniatishvili gets going on the piano) is one of the best live interpretations I’ve ever heard.
Some pics of Khatia:
Damn it, Fred: leave me alone, willya?
At some point over the past weekend, all the songs from White Mansions have run through my mind.
I last heard the album in the mid-1970s, yet I remember every song. Poignant, yet kinda chilling.
A little touch of Grieg in the night… played by the incredible Khatia Buniatishvili.
Yes, you may thank me now.
