Good morning, all.

Well, here we are again. Another week on and still little sign of life. One of you, I gather, has been hot enough to wrap up the recital recording and remit it to Rossy already. I guess the rest have not been blessed with sufficient practise time.

This used to accompany a coffee advertisement on the UK with the words "I'm going to make you a lovely cup of coffee", Grieg's Morning Mood deserves better. Consider this a gentle tincture to rouse you gently from slumber or from Satie.

Handel's Trio Sonata in F continues the peaceful mood. This comes on a wonderful little CD collection of recorder sonatas that is now available on YouTube. I encourage you to sample it further if you like gentle baroque music. You won't be disappointed.

Fauré's Pavanne is one of those pieces that most people know yet few are aware of the composer or title. This was not a serious composition for Fauré. It was originally written for piano and he played it more quickly - not uncommon with Fauré - I'm half considering submitting his popuar Romance Sans Paroles in the next ABF recital as a recording experiment before the Mendelssohn Affair - but the orchestral version has drawn many admirers. It inspired Ravel's Pavane Pour une Infante Défunte and the final Passepied in Debussy's Suite Bergamasque following the famous Clair de Lune.

This version includes the optional choral addition.

Time for some drama now. It took Balakirev ten years to wrench rather than draw the Romeo and Juliet overture-fantasia out of Tchaikovsky and he was still unhappy with the final version though the rest of the big five appreciated it.

As with the Mozart from last week I hope, even if you don't listen to all of this, that you at least get the time to.

We finish today's selection with Gluck's Dance of the Blessed Spirits to restore the tranquility we started with and set you up for a restful day ahead.

Enjoy the last remnants of your weekend and look after yourselves until next Sunday.

Richard, you did it again, marvellous selection!


The performance of Romeo and Juliet is outstanding. What a great conductor Gergiev is.

I also enjoyed the Handel selections in particular because I am interested in recorder music. What a great way to start the day. Thanks again Richard!

Hi all, nice thread. It's about 3 AM in Brighton UK. I am wide awake due to jet lag. I am also very very down. No piano to practice here at Hilton Brighton Metropole. Also it's friggin' cold compared with Phoenix AZ. I had a good Italian icecream though (the best remedy for frustration). I appreciate good music here to entertain my music-less life here. Thank you

Hi Farm Girl! It's nice to hear from you and your kind words of appreciation for this thread. I wish I could have checked in a bit earlier to provide with some music. I'm sure you'll be hearing from others. In the meantime, I do have a few things to share today. I just discovered some more music by my favorite performers of Andean music, Rumillajta. This Bolivian ensemble captivated me when I first saw their performance in the late 1990s in St. Paul.

Wiracocha is the God of Creation, the supreme being of the Incas: a storm god and a sun god, according to my notes from You Tube.. Of great importance in Peru even before the rise of the Inca Empire, Wiracocha was represented with the sun for a crown, thunderbolts in his hands, and tears descending from his eyes as rain. He was Illa, light; Tici, the beginning of things; while Wiracocha itself may have meant the lake of creation. Lake Titicaca, according to one tradition, was the site of the creation of the sun, moon, and stars. Yet in his legendary wanderings on earth, he assumed the form of a beggar.

This beautiful tune is written and performed by Rumillajta. Enjoy!

I do not have any notes or information about the song, "K'arallanta". I do not have much time for the research these days. However, I enjoyed listening to this performance by Rumillajta. I hope you find it enjoyable too!

A note to jazz lovers and jazz detractors; I'm going there Baby! cool

I loved this performance of "Loving You" by vocalist Dianne Reeves. I remember first hearing the performance of Minnie Ripperton (R.I.P.) in the 1970s. This more recent recording of Reeves is gorgeous! Check it out!

Wow! I was just going to check in before heading home to practice. I guess I'm not the only one with a busy time in October!

Anyways, I hope things are going better for you Farm Girl in the UK. I will post one more piece a friend of mine shared earlier today. Then I must be off to home and piano practice.

Here is soul singer Gloria Jones with this 1964 hit, "Tainted Love." Enjoy!

Later folks! smile

Greetings everyone! My annual publication is done, and I'm pleased with the results yippie I'm also taking the day off to catch up on other things like some quality practice time with my Satie piece for November's themed recital! I also have a bit more time to post some music today.

My friend just introduced me to the music of blues harp artist, Corky Siegel. I'll post a few of those. Here is a younger Corky Siegel in 1984 performing "Hey Billie Jean"

Hey Becca! Glad to hear from you. We must have posted about the same time. Yeah, I've got a lot of work to do on my piece. I'm really just getting started with some long blocks of practice time. I have been looking forward to it. Hope you're doing well. smile

What happens when a group of classical musicians get together with a group of blues musicians?

More music happens wink.

This will be my last post before I'm off to practice and home chores. Here is a performance of Corky Siegel's Chamber Blues Opus 17 performed in 2005 at Columbia College in Chicago. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!

laugh I knew most of my October schedule would be jammed with getting the publication done. I was not willing to do the themed recital initially because of the short period of time to practice and rehearse. However, Richard kindly helped me out (immensely) by taking care of the Sunday postings.

Let's check in later on the Themed Recital thread to see how everyone else is doing.

Hi everyone!I hope you all are doing well.

Here is a beautiful song by Paco de Lucía, the great flamenco guitarist. The song is named “Entre dos aguas” (Between two waters), probably one of his most famous tunes.

Evening all,

Hope alls well, smile Wonder if we'll hear from Sir Rossy soon, I know he's been really busy! anyways.........

Musicnotes on "FB" posted this article;

http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/25/3553264/audio-recording-restoration-edison

interseting smile

Someone on FB commented "I was just thinking last year why they couldn't use microscopic mapping to replicate the old wax and aluminum cylinders of the old bluesmen? The early Lomax recordings are sitting in the LOC and need to be heard!"

Which got me nipping over to YT............eh voila....

Wayne, thanks for that post. I've been exploring some of the other related music on YouTube thanks to your post. I will have to stop for now, or I'll never get to practicing my Satie piece today. laugh And I have lots of work to do on that since I got a late start.

Sorry that I don't have any time right now to share some music. I must get a little practice time in this morning before I go to work. Off I go to the piano! Have a great day everyone!
