Wild Card Saturday - Chopin "Revolutionary" Etude
I'm going to post a little Romantic music today, but done in a new, one could say "revolutionary" way. This video features Frederick Chopin's awesome "Revolutionary Etude in C minor Opus 10 No. 12" for piano - featuring California Guitar Trio member Bert Lams playing the left hand part on acoustic steel-string guitar, and Tom Griesgraber playing the right-hand part on Chapman Stick - a new instrument invented in California in the 1980's. The performance comes from the Shoal Creek House Concert in Austin, Texas on August 19, 2009.
