  1. Thank you for your post. I find Boccioni’s work, especially his awesome futuristic oeuvre fascinating. His ‘Unique Forms of Continuity in Space’ remains one of my favourite pieces. Just wanted to add that this wonderful Beethoven String Quartet was used by the Dutch choreographer Hans van Manen in his magnificently daring ballet Grosse Fuge. It was created in 1984 and is to this very day, as innovative as the day of its premier.

  2. The Cavatina is such a melodic Beethoven piece. I wasn’t familiar with it so I’m glad you featured it.

    Northern Elm in Sept of 2022

    following a loud thunder

    the stars begin to gather before

    they set off like a storm

    lightning –

    the conducting hand

    gives the islands the refuge

    the arms of the guy who’s

    still swimming outside the windshield

    are the wipers scraping

    the vast formed water

    is an open chest –

    a transparent deck of the

    survived vessel – the new horizon

    The more I listen to Beethoven the more I love his music. I kind of liked his music before, but it’s very recently that I’ve become fond of his music in a special way, such as never before. His adagios are something out of this world. And this one’s been a beautiful discovery for me. Thank you! 🙂 Interesting painting.
