I don’t know what’s different about today’s music. But it grabbed me by the lapels, shook me out of my slumber, and made me want to know who’s singing. Regina coeli in B flat, K.127, especially Movements 2-4, amazed me. The soprano was doing a lot of vocal gymnastics, which I don’t normally like in [...]

Today, we drove nearly 100 miles round trip to buy soap. Not just any soap, mind you. For that would be foolish. The local grocery store sells soap by the box full. No end to the varieties. No, the soap we bought was lavender and nettle, or lemongrass and nettle, or honey and oat. We [...]

Of Happy Oboes and Clever Reconstructionists (Violin & Wind Concertos, Box 5)

February 4th, 2010 · No Comments · Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Aurèle Nicolet, Heinz Holliger, Hermann Baumann, K(314)/K271k, KApp. 9/K297B, Klaus Thunemann, Mozart at 21, Mozart at 22, Paris (Spring 1778), Reconstructed From Concerto K314/K285d, Salzburg (1777), Sinfonia Concertante in E flat, Sir Neville Marriner

More oboe, bassoon, and flute. Terrific music. Oboe is another instrument I enjoy a lot. Whereas French horns, to me, often sound melancholy, oboes sound happy. So do flutes. Also making an appearance today is another “reconstruction” of Mozart’s work. In this case, it’s Sinfonia Concertante in E flat, KApp 9/297B, reconstructed by American pianist [...]

It’s official. The adorable, exceptionally talented Audrey Tautou, who stars in Amélie, the 2001 Academy Award-nominated French film I’ve watched two nights in a row, has knocked Amy Adams off The Pedestal. Audrey is now my favorite actress. But don’t be sad, Amy. You’re still a very close second. By the way, the soundtrack to [...]
