Friedrich Kuhlau and his William Shakespeare Overture

These gifts only FM can give! I am sitting home, do not bother anybody, turning up the tuner and suddenly discover absolutely amassing piece of music about which I never ever heard.  I so felt in love with the piece that I listened it already 6 times – such a little smart beauty! It is very simple and perhaps not so "loaded" but listen how elegant and wit it is! Sure, you will see the Beethoven’s touch all over but still….

It was written by Friedrich Kuhlau, the Beethoven’s vodka partner.  It is Op. 74 and was composed in presumably1826.  Where the hell this music was before!

Nice discovery
Enjoyable piece of music indeed. Elegant,smart, with some emotivity and also some of Beethoven's "brio". It didn't sound as if Mr "dissection" Herrewhegge was conducting it hehehe. Thanks for sharing Romy. Enjoyable in spite of the 128 Kbps mp3.

Rgrds.
