And now a little something for those who've just recently fallen out of the scratcher, bleary eyed and not yet pumped up with their morning joe.

Arvo Pärt's Spiegel Im Spiegel is just the job. Written in 1978 before Pärt left his native Estonia it became very popular in TV and film after first appearing in Mike Nichol's TV film, Wit, in 2001.

It takes nine minutes, feels like two, and can last in your head the whole day without that irritating can't-turn-it-off-jingle feeling.

Continuing in gentle mood here's a little something from Glinka that'll keep you going until the switch over to Minneapolis later today. In keeping with my normal practise this is a vocal selection for piece number three but today I've no idea whether we're midway through or have barely started the programme!

The Cherubim Song.



As the planet spins dizzyingly around, the sun stoops lower over Ireland (actually haven't seen it today, it's overcast), but in Minneapolis is about to stir. May it fill your day with brightness in mood as well as light. Keep safe until next week.

That's okay Richard! I love your enthusiasm! grin I'm so pleased we will now be doing our Sunday Classical postings on a regular basis from both Ireland and Minneapolis. Of course, anyone can contribute anytime they want to!

I'll be right back with my postings from this side of the Atlantic...or the "Big Pond", as Rossy often says. smile

I like the fact that Richard gave us a choice of what music post we want to start with. The Arvo Part selection was a good choice for many of us on this side of the Big Pond who were just waking up at that time.

For those who are still late risers I offer you this performance of J.S. Bach's Chorale, 'Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme' BWV 645. Ton Koopman is the organist.

I had not heard of French composer Claude Balbastre (1724-1799) until recently while I was doing some research. I really enjoyed these harpsichord selections performed by Elisabeth Farr.

"2 Sonatas in F Major"

We're not getting to see the sun in Minneapolis today! It's snowing, and it's beautiful!

My final choice for today is this lovely performance by soprano Barbara Hendricks with the Oslo Philharmonc Orchestra.

Solvejg's Song, Peer Gynt, Op. 23 by Edvard Grieg





This is my final posting today! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and be well! smile

Very nice team work on Sunday postings. I’ll listen to your selection along the week. Thanks Griffin and Richard for taking your time.

Wayne, sorry Jahmene Douglas didn’t win smile.

The Satie Recital really has some magical effect - we now have two channels for Sunday Classical programs laugh Double the music, double the varieties and consequently double the enjoyments!! smile

Thanks so much Richard and Griffin for giving us a marvelous Sunday Classical gift this week. I thoroughly enjoyed 'em all.

Greetings everyone! Glad you enjoyed the Sunday Classical extravaganza Recaredo and Rupak! Wayne, I really liked Jahmene Douglas's performance! He is very talented.

It seems our snowfall in Minneapolis was too much of a good thing. We're still digging out from a 16-inch storm, and I'm singing the blues! Well, I'm not doing the singing, however. I'll leave that to Jr. Wells and Buddy Guy performing "Hoodoo Man"




That's all I have time for. Off to work I go! Enjoy the rest of your day!

I'm still catching up with last week's postings.

It's a long time since I heard anything by Frankie Lymon that WASN'T Why Do Fools Fall In Love. But it was an important record. It was one of five singles that on May 2, 1956 topped both the Pop and R&B charts with Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins also topping the Country charts at the same time. The three charts were finally united musically and Rock 'n' Roll was established.

It's not often you get to hear them all together again. Enjoy.

Shhh! I'm supposed to be working right now. However, I enjoyed listening to this on my short break. Lovely!

How are things in Florida, PJ. I don't think you want to be in Minneapolis today, unless you like skiing! laugh


Back to work of me! It's over the hump day, and I'll have more time to post and listen on Thursday. Enjoy your day.

PJ,

I was saddened to learn of the death Tuesday of Ravi Shankar, Indian classical music virtuoso. What a loss to the world of music. His contributions were immense.

I came across this short clip of 91 year old Ravi Shankar performing live in Escondido, California on October 2011, according to my notes from You Tube. This is all I'll have time for today. Peace!

So much true, Griffin! His death has left an irreplaceable emptiness in the world of music! Besides his unparalleled virtuosity in music, his humanity, affection and support for young talented musicians will never be forgotten. He was the creator - the 'father' of most of the modern Indian classical artists who got lessons from him and became famous because of his huge supports. May his soul reach the ultimate source of music!

BTW, thanks Griffin for these posts! It's really overwhelming for me to see your feelings about Raviji's death and your appreciations for his music! Your interest in ICM is highly appreciated!

Thanks Rupak! I first heard Ravi Shankar when I was a college student and I was mesmerized. However, you should know that you have deepened our understanding of ICM with your postings. I've learned so much because of your postings here on RST.

Good morning! I guess I'll be the first to post some music today. I have time for a few before I head to work. I never paid a lot of attention to Tango music until a few years ago when I first heard the Gotan Project, an ensemble based in Paris. Here is their live performance at Casino de Paris.

El Mensajero

While Gotan's music involves tango, it also uses elements such as samples, beats, and breaks, according to my Wikapedia notes. Here is an example from their performance of "Mi Confesion"



That's it for me. I must be off. I'll check in later. Have a great day! smile

PJ, the La Vie en Rose was gorgeous. Thanks! We do, however, need to drop you off on top of a snow-covered mountain somewhere where you can ski down it wink I'm perfectly fine with the warm weather, but I've never really lived anywhere else. I think snow is cute for about an hour and then I get bored with it. I like sun and green plants!
Which reminds me, I need to plunk some petunias and snapdragons in the ground so I don't get depressed when everything else turns brown.

I was sad to hear about Ravi Shankar's passing also. His influence on music was immense, and he has had an amazing life. I was suprised to learn Norah Jones was his daughter. Didn't know that one.

Thanks for the Gotan Project postings Griffin! They were a lot of fun!

I caught part of the 1212 benefit for Hurricane Sandy the other night.. I found Adam Sandler's rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah rather entertaining grin

Griffin, thanks for introducing me to Grotan Project- I love their rather unique sound!

AimeeO, that Adam Sandler ALWAYS makes me laugh- I saw the benefit concert, too. Well, on TV. I was a bit saddened to see Billy Joel look...older and a bit subdued....was privileged to see him at a local university GYM in the late '80's and, honestly, that man had energy and fire in him, bouncing all over the stage!
Or, was that Garth Brooks? It's all a big blur now....

I still love BJ, but...a bit nostalgic, I guess.
