...I just LOVE this work.  When performed it is the custom for Veterans in the audience to stand as their Anthem is played.  We even had musicians stand, and I was so proud of them...Such a work that brings us all together.

...Just love this piece...it was so much fun to play.  Also, Holst composed music for an Abbey where orphaned girls were raised, and the Nuns taught them to play violins and other string instruments.  So it makes sense that all of the performers are women.  *S*  Holst also wrote a 'bitch kitty'...the 'Planets'...my teacher worked hard with me to play it...I almost had it down...but at times during the performance I just lifted my bow and pretended to play...I did get better, later.  *S*

...My favorite male duet.  I would probably let the handsome blond Torvie claim me, as long as He promised to sing to me every night... although that cute fluitist is also very attractive...*S*

...Just love this!  Obviously the same performer...that is why they are both wearing headphones. Still, a wonderful performance...it is a very difficult piece to play...*S*

...Two great performers...*S*...surprised that they sat in the sun.  Cellos and violins and violas are very tempermental, and can't handle direct sunshine...it affects the laquer...and the strings.  When doing wedding gigs we would always find the shade.  Once we couldn't find shade near the Altar, and sat away under an Oak tree.  It dropped an acorn on the second violinist violin, and we moved, and set up in the sun...we figured that an hour in the sun would not hurt our instruments too bad...The Couples wedding vows included the phase..."You make me happier than 'Extansy"  A really hard drug.

They did pay us well, and we got fed...They were in the banquet room of Yosemite Lodge, after we played more, we sat outside and were given nice fillets with baked potatoes, fixings, and a couple glasses of wine

...I just had to post this.  I cry every time I hear it...and when I played it.  Elgar was in deep depression when he wrote this.  The War to end all Wars had happened, and Europe was in tatters.  Elgar was a Nationalist Composer before..."Pomp and Circumstance"...but like many in Europe were horrified over what had happened.  It was one of His last compositions.

...Just found this one...I never heard of lyrics to this piece.  They fit very well...it is about family and loved ones...we have to stand together.

...Love this piece...some have said that it is sad...but they are wrong.  Barber was setting to music the most intimate experience that a Man and a Woman can have.  At Conservatory, we hosted some high school kids during the summer recess, and we performed this.  I looked over at the young man sitting beside me as we rehearsed, and asked him what the music meant to him.  He replied..."It is Sunrise"...I just nodded at him...((And I was still a virgin at the time...but I knew what it was about.))

...We performed this with our Orchestra, with a full chorus.  The Commander of the local Naval Air Station was present...and I saw Him wipe away a few tears...certainly not of weakness...but of sorrow for those who were lost.

...Debussy at his best!  It is based on a French tale of a Cathedral at the bottom of the ocean that arises every 100 years for a day.  You hear the bells chime, and then it begins to rise as the ocean swirls around it.  Then it breaks to the surface, and after it has fully emerged, the organ plays.  After the organ has finished, the Monks come out and chant, and then retire.  It slowly sinks back down, the ocean gently welcomes it, and it settles back onto the sea floor.  The bells chime a few more times...and then go to sleep for another 100 years.
