Mick sent me videos of his band from Cologne playing good time music. I circulated the link to the IGS crew and a couple of people mailed back. I have been posting fotos of both London and Bucks on my FB page and have had a few positive comments. I am quite impressed with the performance of the BB camera.
Last week I bought Charles Rosen's book on music and sentiment and this led me to an article about the harmonic progression in Debussy's famous faun prelude and as a result I downloaded a version for four hands where it is easier to read the harmony. This has led to a piece which I mailed to Gilbert today. Gilbert has posted on FB a picture of him jamming with a hurdy gurdy player.
On R3 tonite is a concert with pianist and SQ. First of all Haydn's Emperor SQ and then Ravel's Tombeau which is always a delight esp the Menuet. The 2nd half is Ravel: Minuet on the name of Haydn, Satie: Gnossienne Nos. 2 & 3, Albéniz: 2 Pieces from Iberia: Evocación (Book I) and Triana (Book 2)and finally Debussy: String Quartet in G minor Op. 10. My idea of fun.
