Schubert: Serenade via 78 RPMs & Cylinder Recordings collection by Bob Varney.

A visitation is just a step beyond a lucid dream.
This page is still under development, but while you’re here, check out a few of the performances. If you clicked on Serenade ("Ständchen" in German) at the top of the page, you heard the very old-fashioned Rachmaninoff (b. 1873 – d. 1943) performing a piece composed by Schubert (b. 1797 – d. 1828) for one voice with piano accompaniment, called an art song. What was the song’s intent?

The singer exhorts his lover to make him happy.

Now you’re not hearing Serenade.
