    I'm trying to resucitate my piano playing as I've been invited to resume playing the organ in chapel after a near quarter of a century break. It's not pretty, but I'm improving.

    Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata. This has always so mesmerized me.

    I was listening to some Beethoven sonatas earlier today, and then this one (played by Richter, he's my guy).

    I can see (hear) why. He exudes a special power in his music . . .

    For me, he's the best to touch the keys, better even than Horowitz or Rubinstein.

    Sound quality is poor, but video gives an interesting snapshot into Soviet culture.

    I guess this might fall into at least a peripheral niche of the classical genre. It is "Kol Nidrei,"
    a Jewish hymn sung just before the opening of the ceremony on Yom Kippur (Day of
    Atonement). It has a stunning history, which I won't go into here.

    The beautiful voice is that of Neil Diamond. I originally heard him sing it during the movie
    "The Jazz Singer." I have never gotten tired of hearing it.
