This isn't a piece that needs a lot of experience to play on guitar, it doesn't use a lot of chords, it doesn't need a wide vocal compass and you don't really need to carry a tune but I wish I'd written it. It always gets a good reception when I play it.

This is one of the very best covers of it, perhaps of any song...

Hi everyone! Thanks for all of the great postings this week. I'm looking forward to posting some classical music on Sunday. Here is something by Joni Mitchell that I've enjoyed listening to. Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Getting off to a slow start today as I've been attentively following the Singapore Grand Prix.

Vivaldi's L'Estro Armonico is not as well known as his Four Seasons but it was quite significant in its day and Bach reworked half of the twelve himself.

This, the eighth, became a concerto for Organ, BWV593. It was Vivaldi's concerto format, rather than Corelli's, that influenced the Brandenburgs and then all the major concertos of the classical period.

Leopold Kozeluch is one of the composers overlooked by history because of the beacon that was Mozart. Kozeluch was once offered a position as successor to Mozart - though he turned it down - showing the regard he was held in at the time.

How wonderful to see these lovely classical music postings. Richard, we must be on the same wave length. I was also planning to post a few Vivaldi pieces. KeysAngler, I love that selection by Albinoni. So beautiful.

Here is my first offering.

Concerto No.1 C Major by Joseph Haydn
Performance by Mtsilav Rostropovich with members of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.

Hi KeysAngler and Carl, it's good to see you both here!

My eldest is back to university this evening so life officially goes back to normal tomorrow smile and my piano practice will only be interrupted by one lot of homework.

I'm finishing today with Bruch and his Scottish Fantasy.



Have a great Sunday, everyone.

Richard, I'm looking forward to listening to the Scottish Fantasy later today when there won't be any interruptions.

In the meantime my next three selections will bring us to this side of the Atlantic and the 20th century music of Aaron Copland. I've never listened to any piano compositions of Copland. However, the Passacaglia caught my attention. Copeland's "Hoedown" from his "Rodeo" composition and "Fanfare for the Common Man" continue to be favorites of mine. Enjoy!

My final selection is something I've wanted to present for some time. However, I was never satisfied with the performances I was hearing until I came across this performance by the National Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Choir of Armenia. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Gloria in excelsis Deo in D major (RV 589) by Antonio Vivaldi
