An interlude

Pianos tend to get better as they age, the more you play them. They grow into their sound.
~Alicia Witt

For Music Monday, Saint-Saëns's Aquarium from The Carnival of the Animals performed by The Kanneh-Masons and the last movement of Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 11 performed by Glenn Gould.

A bit of The Carnival of the Animals trivia: The theme of the 1991 Disney film Beauty and the Beast prologue is based on the 'Aquarium' movement, composer Alan Menken said, as a means of promoting French music in a French original fairy tale.

I love Carnival of the Animals and these artists did a great job.

Glenn Gould was a fantastic pianist...nice to hear him again.
