Bartok 'Mikrocosmos' Book 6.   I have had a score for a couple of years but not attempted any of it yet.  F#Major is going out shortly so I might have a go at a couple of them.

Weird things: Schubert's sonata for Arpeggione and piano - I'd never come across the Arpeggione, which is a bit like a cello with frets, or could be viewed as a bowed guitar. And Alois Haba's suite for quarter-tone clarinet and quarter-toned piano, which doesn't sound half so modern or weird as I expected. In fact it sounds quite classical and almost normal - nothing weirder than many cartoon sound-tracks, and quite in the same line as the micro-tonal electric guitar people do. I've heard modern music without quarter tones that's a lot stranger to my ears, and a lot less attractive.

That's what I love about music as a hobby: you never get to the end of it, there are always surprises and new experiences waiting round the corner, new things to learn, new things I'd never thought of, or knew nothing about.

Villa Lobos, Bachianas brasileiras.  I haven't played it for a long time and I'd forgotten how much I liked it :wub:

I read that Reinhardt preferred Warlop to Grappelli, so I ordered this CD.

Nothing right now, but Radio 3 played this this morning, so I bought the CD.

In these difficult times, we need cheering up. How's about this, beautiful, beautiful celebratory light and airy Purcell knowing how to make even the angels in heaven and nymphs in the woods skip to his rhythm, sung here by a beautiful colourful Portuguese choir, and just the right orchestra for the job. This has made me cry with happiness several times already, which just at the moment is quite an achievement.

A friend of mine in the US has just made this a cappella video as tribute to healthcare workers around the world.

 

I find the photos quite emotional to view.

Really love this, by an a cappella vocal group I've just been introduced to (by my friend Chris, in the above post - one of the basses in Cantus used to sing in his a cappella group many moons ago).

 

The first of their 'socially-distanced' Covid-19 videos - the beautiful Finlandia :wub:

MeatLoaf, Bat Out of H*ll II (thanks NannyBot!)

Bear with me!

Not listened to or played music much recently, as sometimes happens.  This morning, 'Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through' was inexplicably going through my head.  So, as the good song says, I put on the 'phones and let the drummer tell my heart what to do.

I think the 'music switch' has just been flipped back to on in my head :D
