Music Monday : Gonzales

When I want to mix it up in the music department I often turn to beautiful piano arrangements and this one by Gonzales knocks my socks off (this one too). Are you a piano fan, and do you have any favorites you would like to share? I hope you enjoy and I wish you a fantastic Monday.



If you can't get enough and want to hear more from his piano fingers, I actually just bought Gonzales' Solo Piano album to listen to and enjoy on the road trip up to Alt (are you going?) Can't wait to listen to it all the way through.

*P.S. Do you like watching the music video clips I share or would you prefer music play lists? Hit up the comments to tell me what you like best.

MUSIC PLAYLIST WOULD BE A WONDERFUL IDEA! THE VIDEOS ARE OK TOO. DO WHAT YOU WANT! I LOVE YOUR BLOG.

I love the playlists, too, especially since I'm not always able to listen to audio when I am able to read your great blog. Thanks!

Love the videos as much as the playlists! I'm a visual person so I love seeing what the artists create visually as well as audibly.

I listen to Rhapsody in Blue a couple time of year and each time it's just as amazing. I love the videos - it's nice to have a visual!

Thanks for posting Gonzales. He's great, I'll defintely be checking out his music.
A fantastic pianist is Dustin O'Halloran. Found his music from the movie Marie Antoinette.

Love the videos. I never know what to listen to from the playlist, but with the video, you make the choice for me.

Love your music posts and I check out all your recommendations! Videos, playlists... I enjoy them all

Love the clips. This guy is so interesting, love how he sits to the side, and still peddles. I can just hear my classically trained piano teacher from 1984 yelling at him to sit straight and to uncross his legs.

Becky said...

oh, and I can never get enough of the piano arrangements from the most recent Pride and Prejudice movie. While I'm partial to the BBC mini series, the music by Dario Marianelli in the more recent movie is fantastic. I'm slowly learning them one by one.

Love the clips. You have great taste in music, by the way.

Gonzales was my neighbour in Paris for two years. I felt super priviledged living in the same building and having "private" piano concerts every week. I know he says it but it's true: he's a musical genius!

I really have enjoyed your music video posts!! I'm terrible about discovering new music, so I appreciate that you share your finds! Love it! Rock on -literally!

I love your Music Monday posts (I prefer videos because I love seeing the artists) and Gonzales is yet another fantastic find! My all time favorite piano piece is "Comtine D'un Autre Ete: L'apres Midi" from the movie "Amelie". I could listen to it over and over again!

Amy said...

I love Gonzales. It's surprising to me that he is not better known.....my vote is continue with the videos, please!!!

I ADORE your Music Mondays. Love the videos.

Denise Laborde said...

Yes! I love Michel Camilo's Caribe. We listen to it on loop. It's latin jazz piano at it's best :)
