*cough* – sorry.
It gets better inch by inch. Walking in the sunshine helps a lot, since we still have sunshine, because next week will be blown & washed away. The sun has tremendous power already, while the air is still crisp.
I do not want to dwell on the news of the last days, it only would make me angry, yell and use too many exclamation marks. Instead we should listen to the overture of PERGOLESIs (1710-1736) (Ger., Eng.) opera L’Olympiade (Ger., Eng.) conducted by Ottavio DANTONE (*1960) (Eng.).
Giovanni Battista PERGOLESI died very young from tuberculosis, so the time he composed secular & religious music was limited to five years only – but his posthumous reputation grew & grew, and some smart publishers foisted fake works on the dead composer. As mentioned in the German wikipedia article, gossip has it that L’Olympiade was no initial success, and a disgruntled member of the audience is said to have thrown an orange at the composer’s head. I do not think that the music is bad enough to throw fruit, eggs or rotten tomatoes at anyone.
Better listen for yourself :
Let’s hope for better times, a peaceful week without the all too usual madness would be a good start.
