Recaredo, you lie.. the south of spain is not like wales at all, ever, not for a single second.

it has rained in wales since aprill there was three days when it allmost didnt rain, but then it did.

one day it looked like it wasnt raining but it was just waiting to rain after all.

it is raining now as it did in the begining and so shall it in the end.

If the meek inherit wales then they will be the wet and cold meek.

Nice curved air Richard!

I love Crystal's hair PJ. Wasn't it longer though? My memory seems to think it was longer than that!

Oh and we have our first snow that stayed on the ground this morning. It's actually late for these parts.. time to put the bike away!

Hellooooooooooooooo campers!

My, my, what an active week we've having! Plonkers being pulled, strangers cruising by, points being sought, people unable to play because of damaged equipment (so sorry, Becca), others because of missing equipment (so sorry, Recaredo), antipodean's not quite getting the jAke, Shostakovich, Purcell, Soul, Blues, Vivaldi (of whom there's more to come) and a short-haired Crystal Gayle.

And isn't it wonderful to have piano joy back! smile

Ragdoll, thank you for joining in. You have the spirit but there's still something that's not quite there. I couldn't decide between the pieces though, so I imagined both, thank you.

I am in awe of everyone who has posted their recordings in the ABF recitals and here in RST. I have updated my ABF submission and am still unsatisfied with it but I've decided that it's the best I can get right now. It's been overplayed and I need to rest from it. I made a recording on Friday when my new cables came and I have eliminated the electical noise, interference and the bagpipes but, alas, I have not overcome my penchant for clumsiness at the keyboard. Heigh ho!

Let us begin the classical selection with Tchaikovsky's collation of Italian folk and street songs that he picked up during a visit there and rehashed somewhat when he got home.

This is a very measured but thoughtful performance that's really growing on me. The Capriccio Italien, Opus 45.



Don't close your eyes at the end. smile

Salieri has had a rough time getting heard. His music became more popular after the film 'Amadeus' but it seems to have died down again.

Here is the overture to his acclaimed ballet, Les Danaides.



I see that embedding is disabled but the music is worth the trip to YT.

Wayne, you crack me up! smile

Today's vocal offering is a song I first learnt of as a young boy as "Catari, Catari" and performed by former Goon, Harry Secombe.

I've known and loved it for half a century, I hope it lasts as long for you. This is a performance to die for. That last phrase has me in tears.

A few weeks ago I posted a video of Ana Vidovic on classical guitar and mentioned my party piece, Bach's Prelude from the solo 'Cello sonata.

Here it is on the 'cello and guitar. It's written in G but the guitar transcription is usually to D major to suit the instrument's tuning. It doesn't say who the solist is here but I'm pretty sure it's Yo-Yo Ma. The guitar player, Tor Inge, I haven't heard of before.

The sharp eyed and quick witted among you, not those for whom getting out of bed on a Sunday morning and reaching for a coffee is an adventure, will have noticed two things; my posting during the week of Darryl Way's (Curved Air) "Vivaldi" and my mention earlier this morning of more Vivaldi to come!

Well, here it is! My final selection for the day and a bit of a stonker, if I may say so. The soloist here, Julia Fischer, has excelled herself and in the company of the Academy of St Martin's in the Field's has produced an absolutely rivetting performance of Winter.

As ever, look after yourselves and have a peaceful week till next week when perhaps Satie will have served his turn, all the dancers have dressed, the recitalists recorded and Sundays will go back to normal without you having to turn your bleary eyes to unravelling my drivel to see what delights have been picked for Sunday Classical!

Greetings everyone! I'm just dropping by briefly. I've been occupied with a work project we're nearly finished with. Two more days and I'll have a bit more time. Off to work I go. Have a great day everyone!

Hi everyone!

Finally my piano is back and fixed. So I can start practicing my Mendelssohn’s song! I have a lot of work to do with this piece.

Speaking of Mendelssohn, here’s my favourite overture composed by him, “Les Hebrides”

I apologise for my tardy start this morning. Mass was extended a little and I had trouble finding the thread!

My goodness, a dozen entries since last week! And some missing entrants in the ABF recital. I'm having doubts about the total benefit of the RST recitals on the shared spirit.

But it has been a busy week at work and I've been rushin' around a bit, which inspired my theme for today's choices.

Here's Balakirev's gloriously picturesque symphonic poem, Russia.

Time for a troika ride through the winter snows now.

Prokofiev's Lt. Kijé soundtrack has proved immensely popluar over the years and a source of much inspiration among artists

Time for the vocal entry. This is German born, but of Russian ancestry, Ivan Rebroff, he of the four and a half octave compass. Tom Jones eat your heart out. He was often on UK TV during my youth. This is gorgeous.

Nearly there!

Borodin, the non-professional "musician" and expert chemist came up with this concoction of themes for his opera, Prince Igor. The Polovtsian Dances are nicer, I think, with the addition of vocals.
