music -- peter arnstein on youtube

Peter Arnstein, a composer and pianist from Minneapolis-St. Paul, now has a clip on YouTube. In it, he's playing his "Brazilian Dance #5" -- a delightful, lighthearted piece. One of the things I like about his music is that there is an underlying sense of humor showing through in many of his works. (Also, the guy's just doggone good!)

I also really like his "Scottish Fantasy" and "Trio Jazzico Nostalgico," both of which are for piano, violin, and cello, and recorded by the Trio di Vita.

If any of you music-lovers out there are curious, there's more information on his website.
