Zoltan Kodály+West Hungary

A photo I took last summer of the Balaton lake and the Badacsony from one of the kilátós - viewpoints with wooden towers - in the area...
Just yesterday I posted another music-and-slideshow video on YouTube, with my own live recording of "Marosszeker Tänze" by Zoltan Kodály (1882-1967) and pictures that I took last summer in Keszthely, Sümeg, Sopron, on Badacsony and in the area west of the Balaton lake.

Bravo Eric!

You're in a great shape on piano! And you prepared a wonderful compilation of photo scenes. I like the presentation very much! That's a great way how to accompany music with travel shots - and vice versa.

Cheers!
Vid

It is the best way of advertising my home country. Thank you and I'm glad you like Hungary. Nature+people+culture these all showing in a perfect composition. Köszönöm szépen!

Re: Eric, you are really great!

Szívesen, István! And also nagyon köszönöm!! :-)
I enjoyed my stay in Hungary a lot; I had a very warm and thankful audience when I played my piano recital in the Festitics palace in Keszthely, and afterwards my girl-friend and I spent three more days exploring the area. I find that part of Hungary really beautiful! Very sort of Mediterranean - it was also very hot on those days in mid-August...
Cheers,
Eric

Very beautiful...

... photo and video! I like so much the colour of the lake and the shadow of the clouds on the water! And wonderful piano playing and a compilation of pictures which let you start dreaming or putting you in a sort of pleasant trance together with the music! :-)

How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?

Re: Very beautiful...

Hihi, Larry, it is so funny!
But do you know the YouTube clip with Victor Borge and Dean Martin? They are singing "Maria, Maria" in a very special way, and then also "Doe, a deer, a female deer" :D
I'm sure you'll like it!
