About John

Classical, rock, blues, jazz...what interests me. I listen to many hours of music a week and sift out what I consider of particular interest for this site. [My personal background is rooted in classical and the "San Francisco Sound"; but, of course it's just the center. Everyone has a center, no matter how much exploration and elaboration throughout life.] If you are interested in more than is posted here, you can check my Facebook page where I publicly post much more music most days. https://www.facebook.com/john.mcdonald.334 ------------------------------------------------------------------------- https://twitter.com/nvsierra

Tina S Metalizes Beethoven (Moonlight Sonata, Third Movement)

Young virtuosa Tina S lays down a wonderful cover of the Dr. Viossy guitar arrangement of the third movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata (Piano Sonata No. 14, Op. 27, No.2).

This is, of course, the “presto agitato” third movement of the Moonlight Sonata. (Beethoven called the sonata “Sonata quasi una fantasia” – sonata, almost a fantasyThe term “Moonlight” wasn’t applied until after Beethoven’s death and referred to the first movement.)

I have been hoping that Tina would tackle this piece, and I’m glad she did!
