Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
I know you thought that I wasn't really listening whilst you tried to inculcate a love of "proper" music in me. And I know you thought I would stay stupidly stubborn for ever. Ha! Just shows what the passing of years can achieve. Drip drip is not only a form of water torture you know. And now look, only 40 something years later and I do actually love much of it ... my top ten are below. So ... I'm all ready for Desert Island Discs should they ever make that call (ha ha).
Sibelius - The Tempest
Elgar - Cello Concerto in E minor
Camille Saint-Saëns - Carnival of the Animals (The Swan)
J S Bach - Goldberg Variations (Glenn Gould)
Chopin - Nocturne in E flat major Op 9 No. 2
Handel - Messiah (Amen)
Dvorak - Moravian Duets
Bach - Brandenburgh Concerto (No. 5 i:Allegro)
Vivaldi - Harp Concerto in D
Tomás Luis de Victoria - Obra: Motete Magnum Mysterium
I could go on Mum ... and on and on. Such a wealth of music out there for us still to enjoy. Not long now until we're off to see Il Travatore!!! See you friday.
Much love, Jocelyn xx
