A Classical Interlude
The Swan from Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns.

Turn up the sound, tune out all of that trivial bullshit you were fretting about, and just fuckin' listen. Smile

Link to original video:

The pianist says 'Bak-jo', which means 'Swan' in Korean. (From the comments section, my Korean isn't up to speed.)

Beautiful, thanks.

Absolutely awesome!
Although I lived in S.Korea for 6 years (on business) and learned the language, I didn't quite catch the pianist's comment first time around. Caught it on the second listen.
Thanks for posting.

Loved it, Jim.
"Where'd that come from?" asks Mrs. Till, violinist
"Oh where all you knuckle-draggers go to get your fix of highbrow music?"
Actually I made that last part up. We did enjoy a good laugh.
BTW Jim, in searching for your previous classical interludes, I did finally find the one of Glenn Gould playing with Bernstein. Thanks for the 'tip of the hat'. Cool
