Sunday Music

It looks as if my weekends are even busy-ier than working days through the week. I want to believe that somewhere is still a little “Sunday” left on the planet when I bring this post – but I have absolutely no clue about celestial mechanics and hence the measuring of time. I can read the clock, and that has to be enough.
This Sunday Music is the overture of the dramma giocosa “Le Nozze (di Dorina)” (1755), composed by Baldassare GALUPPI (1706-1785) (Ger., Eng.), performed by the Kammerakademie Potsdam under Sergio AZZOLINI (Ger., Eng.) in 2006.
I hope you like the music. This is a short working week, so I’ll see you soon – may it be a peaceful week for all of us !

Sunday Music, Monday Edition

GAAAAAAAAAAA !

Actually I am in the scream phase, not like saying something just a bit louder than usual, but scream bloody murder. Next will be the fist on keyboard phase. I envy Alice (Eng.), Dilbert’s coworker, for her “fist of death”, I think she can put this one through a flat screen. Not that my poor, dusty screen would be to blame. Nor the computer, the web, or even me. I just do not want to talk about it. But after the revolution, the rupture or what the hell may put an end to this idiotic age we have to live through, all structural engineers (“Statiker”) and medical specialists (“Fachärzte”) will be shot. All. And I mean it. I have a list !
So, there, some music. Something strange by Bruno NICOLAI (Eng., Ger.), very aptly named Realtà, realness, Wirklichkeit.
I hope you enjoy the music and don’t have to listen to “specialists” – AAARRRGGG

Sunday Music

“Geschichte wird gemacht – es geht voran !”
Band Fehlfarben, song Ein Jahr

 

And history was made in Wembley when Mr JOSHUA knocked out Mr KLITSCHKO, a clean fight, a clear victory, a generational change. Let’s hope that Vladimir understands the message written on the ring floor, and quits. Enough of this.
Yesterday was the only sunny day in a row, and for the week to come, so I took a stroll on the banks of the river Main. Here is some photographic evidence.
To give a general impression, this is a view from the right river bank towards the left one, lot of mistletoes growing there in the trees.

Der MAIN, FRANKENS Stolz

Nice and sunny, and no, our rivers are not flowing uphill. Of course they could, if they’d decide to.

Communities are generously providing health facilities for free, everyone is invited to a round of Wassertreten, also called Kneippen.

Stepping through cold water is a bit exhausting, so it is time to try the local street furniture.

It is actually more comfortable than it looks.

Franconians, at least many of them, like to decorate their environment. There is always place for some flowers, or stuff. So on your way back to the car you may spot something like this :

There’s always space for a flower.

And your reward for following me up to here : A short bourée by Christoph GRAUPNER (1683-1760) (Ger., Eng.).
I hope you like the music. May we all have a peaceful week !

Sunday Music, Tuesday

Apologies, I’m late – things, stuff, but mostly life … Someone once remarked that “life” would be what happens while one waits for something else to happen (or at least along this line), who ever it was, I think this person had understood something.
Musicwise I was looking for thundering guitars, but could not decide. I found that someone put out HENDRIX’ first Fillmore East show from 31.XII.69 in a really well remastered version some months ago (tidbit), good GOD what could this man do with a guitar. But finally I chose the Harlem Nocturne in a 1946 version by the Randy BROOKS (Ger., Eng.) Orchestra, the solo sax played by Eddie CAINE, about whom I could find no entry nowhere, despite the fact that he later played with MINGUS.
Here all is back to nearly normal, at least I am tired as usual. I hope you enjoy the music, and that we have an uneventful & peaceful week ahead.
