A very popular piece by Johannes Brahms but I’ve never heard it like this before; it’s like someone took it apart and put back together again and with some bits in different order. This successful yet awkward operation has been conducted by 3 Croatians and they take full responsibility for it :-); Matej MeštrovićPiano / Kristina Bjelopavlović CesarPiano / Borna ŠercarDrums. Hope you enjoy as I most certainly did and here’s a brief history about these short/wonderful compositions taken from the indispensable Wikipedia.

Brief History

In 1850 Brahms met the Hungarian violinist Ede Reményi and accompanied him in a number of recitals over the next few years. This was his introduction to “gypsy-style” music such as the csardas, which was later to prove the foundation of his most lucrative and popular compositions, the two sets of Hungarian Dances (published 1869 and 1880).

Only numbers 11, 14 and 16 are entirely original compositions. The better-known Hungarian Dances include Nos. 1 and 5, the latter of which was based on the csárdás “Bártfai emlék” (Memories of Bártfa) by Hungarian composer Béla Kéler, which Brahms mistakenly thought was a traditional folksong.

Boy, won’t it be nice to finally get out of that bubble and interact with each other like normal again – even my pets are getting confused of who’s the real me when returning home with a mask
