Interesting interpretation of Bach's Toccata, however, I think I prefer the more traditional. Cameron Carpenter's skill however is noteworthy. I've seen him play (videos etc.) and he is a madman on that organ.

Rudolph Serkin & Seiji Ozawa with LvB's "Choral Fantasy". I have just acquired this in Alfred Brendel's recording of the 5 concertos with James Levine & Bernard Haitink. (6 really). Although the recording is by no means as clear as this one, I prefer Brendel & Haitink's interpretation. They make it positively addictive listening.

Liking the orchestra version of The Doors People are Strange - kinda singing along... I think Jim Morrison would be amazed that it transfers so well ....

Bolero! What a nice note to end the work day.

I had the full brass band marching around my cubicle, this time. No musicians, just the brass...

Do you, by any chance, work for Disney studios, Selma? I thought instantly of "Fantasia". :lol:

Naah. Disneyland is an hour and twenty minutes north of here. The commute just wouldn't work.

Then again, w so much of the family points north, you could move to Temecula, be closer to the offspring, and cut the commute in half.

I am thinking I have Janacek's Sinfionetta in my collection. I haven't heard this complete in a long time.

Do you HAVE to play Beethoven's 9th when I'm trying to leave??? Now I don't want to leave...but for the first time in a while I can pick up Bella at daycare on a Wednesday (I've been taking a class - had the final today, so out early - but was generally out too late to get her), and now I don't want to leave...

Ah, it's over...BYE!!!

Toccata and Fugue in D minor played on an organ! Yay! Nicely, too, though a bit briskly I think.

strange day today...

I asked for the Boccherini a little while ago.... H.R.H. played it.....
Right when it started... I received a call from a contractor....

I will be subbing the 1st trumpet with the Amore Opera Company part in Mozart's - Marriage of Figaro this sunday....

Oh boy.... Revenge Aria... :-)

I'll have to ask for the Boccherini again... :-)
