#128 The Smell of Diamond

A very gentle melody, fragile and innocent. But the piano keys are hurting, the strokes are sharp. Many angles, different lights.

What Gieseking is achieving here is marvelous. He is the music he's playing, he himself is a gentle diamond.

Composer: Claude Debussy
Work: Préludes, VIII. ...La fille aux cheveux de lin
Recording: Walter Gieseking
