The Moments of the Beauty and Expressivity

The Moments of the Beauty and Expressivity1961. Claudio Arrau's hands. Photo by Arnold Newman.


Claudio Arrau  (1903 – 1991) one of the greatest pianists of all time, plays Schumann Carnaval (1961). A great person deserves no less:

We need to honor those moments of the beauty and expressivity. They are rare. They are becoming pretty rare as we get older. 

The syndrome of the longest and final goodbye known as the fear of becoming irrelevant.

It's so human, even for the great minds and artists, and it should be tolerated (particularly in the case of older people).

I like very much imperfect people, even you.


Herbert von Karajan (1908 – 1989) an Austrian conductor. A great person deserves no less:

"If I have so many things to think, to do, and to meditate upon, and my body refuses to follow me, then nature must give me another one. Must give me another. Not maybe." - Heribert Ritter von Karajan (1908 – 1989) to a biographer some time (in 1986) before the great conductor's death (in 1989).

Heribert Ritter von Karajan


Artur Schnabel (1882 - 1951) an Austrian classical pianist. A great person deserves no less:

"As I pointed out, his most important recordings are his Beethoven. He recorded most of the Piano Concerti twice. The first time was from 1932 to 1935, recording all 5 concerti with Sir Malcolm Sargent conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. He recorded Nos. 4 and 5 with Frederick Stock/Chicago Sym in 1942, and Nos.2 to 5 with Issay Dobrowen/Philharmonia Orchestra in 1946 to 1947. I have heard all of these but analyzed only the Dobrowen recordings and the No.1 with Sargent.

It is obvious that his technique was much more intact in the 1932 No.1 than it would become more than a decade later. His technique apparently declined a great deal in his late years. According to Horowitz’s theory, Schnabel played only Beethoven in his late years, and that caused him to lose all of his technique. (From Harold Schonberg's Horowitz: His Life and Music). The 1946/7 performances are just average.

Although there are occasional moments of beautiful expressive passages, many other pianists can do that just as well."

History does tend to lose a lot of talent in public consciousness, but history also has a way of reviving that memory sometimes years or centuries after the great talent that was lost to history is found again. It is this reminder (as this buzz serves) that brings those talents back into our consciousness. We should not take for granted the excellence we can observe especially in an age where information is a constant thunder storm where we see less flashes of brilliance.

A good reminder Milos to appreciate the moments we have, when our body is cooperating. The outside ages, while the inside can stay young.

Kudos Joyce \ud83d\udc1d Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee, yes very true.

Losing skills as years pass due to disease or age is a plodding thing. To mourn what one can no longer do is a mistake. It is necessary to relish what was done.

A man is at his greatest when his gentleness and compassion can be seen for the outside, and that is you Milos Djukic! Thank you!

There are many places where the fear of irrelevance takes hold in our lives. A simple thing to tell people that they matter. Try it and see how it feels to say and hear. You matter to me Milos Djukic
