I’ve been listening obsessively to Schubert’s “Impromptus” lately, so it was perfect that the cartoonist used Opus 142, the great impromptu in B flat with theme and variations. The following video is sometimes dippy, sometimes touching, but Simone Dinnerstein’s recording of the impromptu in G flat is heartfelt and lovely.

    Sendak & Schubert — what a perfect pair. Thanks for sharing such truly lovely pieces. And so truly true as well: Live Your Life, Live Your Life, Live Your Life. Words to remember.
