Good morning everyone! There have been some fantastic postings on this thread! I'm still trying to catch up. Richard, we must have posted about the same time.

Piano Joy, when is dinner? I like my filet mignon cooked medium. LOL I gave you a little trumpet music to start dinner with. You can't go wrong with this second course for music. Here is Yo-Yo Ma performing the second movement of the Cello Concerto No.2 in D by Franz J. Haydn.

Enjoy! I'll be back shortly with my other Sunday Classical music postings.

This describes today here in Maine perfectly. Sorry about the background but it's a pretty setting.

OMG, I saw Hawkwind in the mid-70s at Friars Aylesbury! I think I was 15.

Edit: It must have been the Space Ritual tour.

Rossy, you should check out the fan site for Friars. Lots of old stuff there about Mott and Ian Hunter etc. It was the most excellent venue(s). (They moved in the 70s, but it was great both places, the management remained the same.)

I've decided to go ahead with my original plan and share another selection by Michael Haydn. Here is the Divertimento in G Major performed by the Slovak Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Bohdan Warchal.

I forgot to name-check Phil Mazanera in that Roxy clip. Sorry Phil. But hey, there was a whole world of musicians-who-would-influence-the-world in that clip.

I'm feeling the filet mignon. But having overdosed on Welsh lamb on Friday night, I am still in recovery...

Eglantine and Piano Joy, all of this talk about food is making me hungry again. How's a guy supposed to do his classical postings when he can only think of mouth watering filet mignon, Welsh lamb, perhaps with some asparagus or artichoke hearts ... Argggh!!! I must cook now. I've posted enough classical music to hold you until it's time for desert!

Later!

We did post simultaneously, Griffin, but don't worry, I regularly look back and did indeed catch the trumpet concerto (and the other place for dinner).

Sandy, what's with boats in Maine? I saw one crabbing at 1:48 and thought it was odd. Then at 3:58 there's another doing the very same thing! Great Sunday morning mood, though!

Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay were at my sisters wedding, Eglantine. Alas, on the groom's side. I didn't really get to meet them.

Such a range of styles and moods; it's quite exhausting.

Here's another emotional offering to mark the start of Passion Week, made more poignant by the accompanying scenes. Humanity thrives on the twin towers of experiencing and of sharing such emotion.
It cleanses and purifies the soul and is itself uplifting.

I dare say, this too will soon be followed by something light and lively. Isn't this a great thread? The whole gamut of emotions, times of day and seasons of the year in one place!

Half of Roxy Music were at your sister's wedding? Oh, but, missing the all-important important Mr Eno!

Just now, I'm mainly listening to Mr Nyman's - ahem - 'reinterpretations' of Purcell and Croft. Nyman basically lifted a whole lot of 'grounds' from Purcell (and Croft too, after a re-attribution) to make his soundtracks for the movies.... The Draughtsman's Contact, A Zed and...

I say, fair play, he took it all and made it his own, after a fashion. And that's what 'grounds' were about.

I loved those movies (back in the 70s/80s): the sound was given the weight it deserved. Visually stunning, but audio fantastic too.

Now that I've had a chance to eat, here is another Sunday offering. The Fugue in G minor BWV 578 by J.S. Bach. The organist is Ton Koopman.

I think they were just pleasure boats hoping to cash in on a free concert! Looks like they didn't stay long, I'd guess the acoustics weren't great!

The Adagio was beautiful. When I lived in Portland (Maine) I used to go to the Easter sunrise concert that takes place on a bluff with a stunning view of the bay. Usually put on by members of the Portland String Quartet, I think.

Cool. I almost responded with In Every Dream Home a Heartache - another good one for seducing the girls - at least the inflatable ones. smile

But it is April 1st, a.k.a. April Fools day. A couple of old SNL clips seems appropriate:

Hi Griffin, curious that the intro to the piece says BWV 574 (not 578)... but it does appear to be 578.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_compositions_by_Johann_Sebastian_Bach

Different key.

Bach is,of course, the 8th wonder of the world!

Ton Koopman is a fantastic organist, harpischordist, conductor and all round top bloke ! He has also worked tirelessly to revive the reptuation of Dietrich Buxtehude, who Bach himself regarded as the master. He has been working on a project to record the complete works of Buxtehude, which will no doubt be the definitive edition. This may already be complete.

Gosh, yes, Eglantine, what a noise in the world Eno made with Bowie and Hunter!
(Did you change the link for the Draughtsman's Contract?)

Thank you, Griffin. I'd only heard TK on the harpsichord until now.

Cheechako, I did calligraphy with Frank Zappa's sister-in-law, Joyce Teta.
I was directed to You Tube to catch your Cocker & Belushi video, great fun! In the sidebar I caught this clip from Joe Bonnamassa.

"Woke up dreaming I was gonna die", my goodness, the man exudes Blues. With ambassadors like this the Blues will never die!

On a better note... Eno and Another Green World. Famous also, as the theme tune for Arena on the BBC.

But my preferred Eno is the collaborator. For example, his work with Slowdive. A much under-rated band that has stood the test of time.
