I used that phrase in a little poem that I wrote following a DVERSE POETS PUB prompt. I thank the friends who liked that phrase, and of course, all of you who visited and commented. 🙂 However, I would not have conceived of it had I not seen something that closely resembled butterflies dancing on piano keys.
Several months ago, I watched a Valentina Lisitsa performance on Youtube. I am not as much a fan of the piano as the violin. But I was mesmerized by her virtuosity. Her hands deftly navigated the keys, flitted across the board so quickly, so gently. At some points in the performance, her hands were simply a blur. They brought to mind butterfly wings flitting from one flower to the next in a graceful frenzy.
Here are some videos of Valentina’s performances. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 🙂
I think that this was the video that introduced me to Ms. Lisitsa.
I think that this is one of the best versions of this beloved music.
This is a very popular piece and my favorite Chopin etude. Well, that I can hum the music is a big reason for it. 🙂 And, it is truly beautiful.
