SCHUBERT'S FANTASIE F MOLL: MUSIC IN THE DARK PART 2
Another piece of music whose theme first appeared to me in a movie theater and went on to become a major staple of "ear food" was Schubert's Fantasie f-moll for two pianos in the film Madame Sousatzka. Shirley MacLaine gave a virtuoso performance of a grand diva immediately recognizable to anyone who's worked in the world of music and dance. Thanks to Maready whose original blog "The High Ponytail" was a great source of out of print rare performances. The mp3 of this performance comes from his flac upload. He continues now with "Avant cue j'oublie".
The mp3, well worth repeated listenings, is here
