Beginning again.

January 22, 2016 Leave a comment

Thursday, January 21, 2016. Hard to believe that I’m still here in the world! The plan: to sketch out the lives of me and my family. Not trying to be sophisticated about it or I’ll stop again. Just piece-meal bits and pieces.

(But first I have to stop and go off to the Barbican Library to return the CDs I borrowed last week.) So A bientôt!

Came back with:

Richard Goode playing Brahms: Eight Piano Pieces, Op.76; Seven Fantasies, Op.116; Four Piano Pieces, Op. 119.

Mozart Mass in C minor (Harry Christophers et al.)

Messiaen, Turangalîla-Symphonie (Esa-Pekka Salonen, Philharmonia Orchestra)

Handel, As steals the morn. Arias and scenes for tenor. Mark Padmore with Andrew Manze and The English Concert.

Handel, L’Allegro, il Pensaroso et il Moderato. PaulMcCreesh, Gabrieli Consort & Players.

Wagner, Tristan under Isolde. Wilhelm Furtwängler, Kirsten Flagstad, Ludwig Suthaus and Philharmonia Orchesta. (1952)

Hope none of these is faulty (as the Barbican CDs sometimes are).
