String Trio , Op 9, No. 3 by Ludwig van Beethoven

From wiki:

The three String Trios, Op. 9 were composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1797–98. He published them in Vienna in 1799, with a dedication to his patron Count Johann Georg von Browne 

Although this opus does not contain the most played works by Beethoven it was a significant milestone in his development as a composer. At the time of publication the 28-year-old Beethoven regarded the trios as his best compositions. The trios can be seen as a part of the preparation for the upcoming string quartets, which became the leading genre among his chamber music. The musicologist Gerald Abraham has remarked that in terms of their style and aesthetic value the string trios of Op. 9 rank with Beethoven’s first string quartets which ousted the trios from the concert halls. Beethoven composed no further trios after the first quartets (Op. 18) were published in 1801

The woman who is playing the violin with such enthusiasm is Ye Wu . It is a pleasure to watch her work.

Trump Says Blacks Identify With His Indictments

Trump at the Black Conservative Federation Gala last night in South Carolina:

“I got indicted and lot of people said that’s why the Black people like me”
Watch the Video

He was just getting started.

Trump: “Unlike racist Joe Biden, I spent my entire life working with Black Americans to build buildings”

(He forgot to mention the part about the DOJ suing him for refusing to let blacks rent apartments in his buildings.)

No idea what to make of this — same event.

Trump: “These lights are so bright in my eyes I can’t see people… I can only see the Black ones. I can’t see any white ones. That’s how far I’ve come. That’s a long way isn’t it?” — Video

Or this.

Trump at the Black Conservative Federation Gala: “You know Cary Grant? He was this very handsome guy… Sidney Poitier, I thought he was very handsome right?” — Video

“I’m being indicted for the Black population” — Video
