Before I go to work I've made a pledge to practice on the piano before going to work, even if it's only for 10 minutes. Off I go! Have a great day everyone!

Hi!

Lovely songs Griffin! Rossy, I liked to read that anecdote of your mom.


Farmgirl, I’m glad to see you over here. I’d also like to hear about your favourite music.


Today I’m going to post about other unfairly unknown composer. Vicente Martín y Soler was a musician from Valencia (Spain), who lived in the XVIII century. He composed several operas which got great successes at the biggest European theatres of that age. Even Lorenzo da Ponte, the famous librettist, worked for him.

Listening to his music, it’s difficult to understand why this composer has been forgotten.

Here we can listen to the overture of the opera called “Il burbero di buon cuore” (The Good-Hearted Curmudgeon).

Everyone posted at the same time!

This evening I've been at a harpsichord recital at Handel House, where Handel lived for almost three decades... and where Hendrix lived much later. grin

The programme included
PC Foucquet (mind how you pronounce that!) - Le Carillon de Cythere
J Duphly - La Forqueray
C Balbestre - La Lugeac
Scarlatti - K 132 and K 133
Mozart - variations on 'twinkle twinkle..' (you know the one)
and finally a Mozart piece originally written for glass harmonica
all expertly played by an incredibly young Nathaniel Mander.

Here's Claire Williams playing K 132 only a couple of hundred metres away:




I have spent the evening with two Canadians, one from London Ontario. It's a small world!

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in awhile, but I've been enjoying reading everyone's posts and music selections while I'm supposed to be working.

I heard this song on the way to work today. It became a big hit for an unknown singer when it was featured in an episode of "So You Think you can Dance." I just love the delicious sadness of it.

If your at work and worried about getting caught, I think you are meant to have a seperate tab open on a porn site.
I may be wrong, but i think they expect you to be watching porn at work and make allowences for it.
So, just flick from piano world to porn and you should be okay.

Well as everyone is in sad song mode, here is a cracking little number originally done by MTH, here is Ian Hunter and the late Micky Ronson . with "I wish I was your mother"
Micky here on some sort of mandolin rather than his usual blue gibson, showing just what a multi faceted talented guy he was.

And such an unassuming guy too.

Enjoy...

Good morning everyone. Great posts yesterday! It's going to be another busy day for me. However, I have a post today that stirs a range of feelings (mostly good) for me. I've been listening to several recordings of the Soweto Gospel Choir.

"Swing Down" is an old African American spiritual which I loved and sang in high school as part a quartet I was in. When I first heard the Soweto Choir sing it I was choked up with emotions of joy and pride in their performance. They seamlessly blended the African American style with a distinctively South African style, thereby taking it to a whole new level. it felt like Swing Down had gone from it's home in America to it's roots in Africa!

Enjoy!
