as you have never heard it before!!!
On googling Mario Lorenzi I came across this astonishing bit of footage (1:48) from 1947 of his playing of Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers. He makes the chromatic sections sound complete effortless!
It's a British Pathe film and the sound doesn't always sync with the recording, the close up of pedal work is quite funny considering the speed his feet must have been going at. However the sound recording is very good.
All that sound from an Erard.
Mario Lorenzi (1894–1967)
Well, I'm a bit of a harp nerd, and it's the quirky more unusual side of harping that usually catches my eye and ear!
