Visitations

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, but This Masquerade. Talk about a lame hello, one of the downsides of liberal democracy in America. The way things are, the so-called status quo, is bittersweet. It’s great that people care, but only if it’s for the right reasons. Nothing less should be allowed to practice (or to be allowed to be active). I’m the “bright white baby.” The office of the POTUS since the wall came down is the dirty bathwater. It’s been capitalizing on me big time.
