Rhapsody in Blue like you've never heard it before

If you like George Gershwin music, Don came across this link in which the conductor Leonard Slatkin is conducting the French Orchestre National de Lyon in "Rhapsody in Blue." A pianist by the name of Khatia Buniatishvili absolutely nails this famously difficult piece of music. It's jaw-droppingly good.



  1. Nailed it, she sure is a strong pianist.

  2. With the non-stop news coverage this morning of the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, this is exactly what I needed. Thank you.

  3. She is phenomenal!! with such great strength and power. Makes me want to get back to practicing again.

    I love all that you write and plan on getting your new Amish-related books. I've been reading you online for several years and you mentioned once about writing an article regarding starting a crafts business in a magazine years ago, searched for my copy and happily found it. Little did I know that one day I could read your writing almost everyday which I enjoy very much. Praying that you and your husband will be blessed with good health and blessings at your new home.

  4. Sure hate to be off topic but I need some help from you ladies that pressure can.
    Have stored large amount chicken breast in freezer. The potential of electric power curtailment is worrying me so would like to pressure can some of the chicken. All I can find on Google is dealing with instant pot thawing and cooking.
    Would one of you experienced ladies advise me how to pressure can in this situation. Am experienced canning raw chicken.
    Thank you for your advice.

  5. Bravissimo! Wow, that was phenomenal!

  6. I can not remember the last time I heard this, and it is Fantastic. But now I will date myself. I believe the first time I heard this it was the music for a cartoon! Yes back in the day the old time cartoons used music such as this, and many other Classics, as the sound tracks for cartoons. And I have enjoyed all sorts of Classical Music since then. Exquisite.

  7. She is amazing, thank you for posting this.
