Alan at the Yellow Door

The Yellow Door Coffe House is a fixture in Montreal culture, a landmark where generations of folk musicians have first been exposed to an appreciative public. In the early days Alan Fraser performed there with a guitar or with the Yellow Door Tabernacle Choir, but later he came back from Yugoslavia to show his old friends the new “skill set” he had been acquiring in the Balkans.

This performance is on a beat-up old Heintzman upright, barely in tune, but it speaks. It’s personal, it has atmosphere, it has that indefinable something present when true communication takes place – and that’s why we include it here.

Scarlatti: 3 Sonatas

Mozart: Sonata in G major K 283

Rachmaninoff: Preludes in E flat major, B minor, C minor

Encore – Chopin: Nocturne in F major Op. 15 #2
