Pyotr Tchaikovsky — June: Barcarolle

26 10 2011

In preparation for my next short film, a part of the film features a ghost playing this piece (or at least trying to).  When I wrote the script, I specifically had this piece in mind for the part in the story as I thought it fit perfectly.  It’s a piece that I’ve heard many times in the past but never learned to play myself, and when I had the revelation of having it in my script (and soon to be film), I took to learning it, which was quite easy, I admit (though the middle section took a bit more time to get right).

I like the Seasons. I learned one when I was in college and when I got critiques back from the piano jury one of the faculty members thought the piece was by Chopin! I think Tchaikovsky is sometimes looked down on by academics, but he is a wonderful composer!
