Frédéric Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 2. II Larghetto | Arthur Rubinstein

I read a quote that shall be a good reminder for me; it says “The secret of life is to know who you are and where you are going.”

I hope that year 2016 is a year of peace for me, and of more focus on the classic music listening, ballet performance viewing and yoga practice.  I thus like to start with this piece “Frédéric Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 2. II Larghetto | Arthur Rubinstein”.

I like to start my first Monday in 2016 with a quote I read today, and one of my favorite Violin concertos – Beethoven Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61 – Itzhak Perlman, violin; Daniel Barenboim, conductor; Berlin Philharmonic.

. The quote:

Make the mistakes of yesterday your lessons for today.
