Maksim is מקסים

While y'all are going on trips and doing fun things this Chol Hamoed Sukkos, poor old Lost and Found is stuck at home working all day. My breaks have consisted of being on the receiving end of disappointed motherly looks and blogging. Oh, and putting together a belated anniversary gift for my parents :-)

Many of you may know this song from the movie Somewhere in Time, and if you do, then I hope you enjoy this rendition of it even more than someone who hasn't seen the movie.

Maksim Mrvica is a Croatian pianist who does a cover of the theme music from the movie.

What I love in particular about this song is that it's a perfect example of a song that isn't over-played. Maksim is a pianist, so it wouldn't come as a surprise if there was a lot of piano and the rest of the orchestra is laid by the wayside. Here, Maksim not only shows his talent as a pianist, but his ability to arrange a song that plays to its strengths as well as his own. The song is beautiful by itself. He takes a beautiful song and makes it unearthly.
