I enjoyed the heck out of this performance of the
Partita #2 by Argerich from a recent, post Covid
performance. Played in a somewhat overly reverberant
space, there’s something masterful and colorful about
this playing. Inner voices swell from within the
textures only to submerge back into the overall texture
again. Brilliant spontaneity!
It reminds me that I more often prefer all-around
players to specialists.
Post Covid. Who is post covid? Argerich? You?
You have inspired me to check the definition of
Thanks so much!
It was a simple, honest question. I don't know what you
mean by post Covid. If you think that's persnickety, too
I think it's clear that he means 'in the era ov Covid', that
is, after it has struck and we are no longer permitted to
gather to listen to music (or do much of anything else, for
that matter--(though by the grace of Andrew 'Emmy' Cuomo,
6700 people were allowed to attend a football game yesterday
in a stadium designed to hold 72,000).
Well, I guess post-covid could be used to refer to the "era
of covid" or the era after covid has passed. I think most
people would think it should be used for the latter. That's
why I misunderstood. I thought maybe Germany had conquered
Covid. Then I looked at the data. Hardly.
As to why John decided to be persnickety about my question,
I can't guess.
