Murray Perahia - Felix Mendelssohn, Fantasy in F#- ("Scottish Sonat
Murray Perahia - Felix Mendelssohn, Fantasy in F#- ("Scottish Sonat Murray (Moshe) Perahia was born in the Bronx borough of New York City to a family of Sephardi Jewish origin. According to the biography on his Mozart piano sonatas CD, his first language was Ladino. The family came from Thessaloniki. His father moved to the United States in 1935; many family members perished in the Holocaust a few years later. Perahia began studying the piano at age four with a teacher he says was "very limiting" because she made him play a single piece until it was perfect. He says his musical interests blossomed at age fifteen for reasons he can't explain, and he began to practice seriously. At seventeen, Perahia attended Mannes College, where he studied keyboard, conducting, and composition with his teacher and mentor Mieczysław Horszowski. During the summer, he also attended Marlboro, where he studied with musicians Rudolf Serkin, Alexander Schneider, and Pablo Casals, among others. He played duets for piano four hands with Serkin, who later made Perahia his assistant at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, a position he held for over a year. In 1965 Perahia won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions. In 1972, he was the first North American to win first prize at the Leeds Piano Competition, helping to cement its reputation for advancing the careers of young pianistic talent. Dr. Fanny Waterman recalls anecdotally (in Wendy Thompson's book Piano Competition: The Story of the Leeds) that Horszowski had phoned her prior to the competition ...

Felix Mendelssohn Venetian Gondola Boat Song Op 30 No. 6
Felix Mendelssohn Venetian Gondola Boat Song Op 30 No. 6 May 2008 recital. I began piano almost 4 years ago, and can't imagine a day without it! My desire is to inspire others to discover their passions.......it's never too late, and no one is perfect! Music teaches us so much more than the obvious...It teaches us about ourselves, and about life.. Please excuse the audio quality...This is taken by a camcorder..Your comments are welcome.....be nice! This is only my 3rd performance, and I chose for the first time, to play 4 pieces instead of 1....a bit much for my level of musical maturity....and nerve threshold!
