In concert: Pavel Kolesnikov plays Schubert D899

Since earlier in the pandemic, one cheering lifeline has been provided by filmed concerts. Here’s a plan. At least until the sunnier days of spring are here, I’m going to post a weekly link to share some performances, ones that you too might find really worth pausing over for a reflective moment one evening. They might be old or new, probably in fact just part of a concert, perhaps just half an hour more or less — and available online at least for the next couple of weeks, so you can find a chance to stop to watch and listen. Let’s see how it goes.

I’m starting with the opening of Pavel Kolesnikov’s Wigmore Hall concert just before Christmas. He began with a deeply felt, mesmeric, performance of Schubert’s D899 set of Impromptus. Kolesnikov astonished in the great G major sonata recently too; I find him a quite wonderful Schubert pianist. Enjoy!

(The impromptus last just over 30 mins: the rest of the concert — Bach, Adès, Schumann — is predictably excellent too!)

  1. I’m a noobie to logic and am very grateful for your self study guide for picking out what books I might want to read in my logic journey. In addition to those I had come across Hans Halvorson – How Logic Works and read it along side a couple from your guide. As a beginner I liked Halvorsons book a lot, I was curious what you might think of it.

    Thanks for the work you do to share logic with the general public, I look forward to seeing your future Category Theory book completed.

    1. Thanks for the kind remarks. As to Halvorson’s book, I don’t know it (so thanks for the pointer), and it is always interesting to hear what readers recommend as helpful. It looks like something I should take a look at when starting work thinking about a third edition of my IFL. A
