Surprising nuggets from r/classicalmusic

Realistic render of Frédéric Chopin by Hadi Karimi. (Also, Chopin’s cartooning on his manuscript) “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music… I get most joy in life out of my violin.” Shostakovich Posing with a cat and a kitten. Also, a pig. Shostakovich working on Symphony 8 Saint-Saens in his amazing pajamas. Early 1900s Colorized Stravinsky and Rachmaninoff. Also, Listz 4 months before he died. Extra, My great great Grandfather chilling with Rachmaninoff Alfred Schnittke’s gravestone. (And Stockhausen’s) posted by growabrain (0 comments total) 3 users marked this as a favorite
