AA on iOTWreportFM
OoOoh 1 and 2! 😍
I learned everything I know about classical music from Frank Zappa and cartoons….I’m just a “common man”.
Thank you AA. I’ve loved Mozart and others since I was a toddler. Mussorgsky’s Bilder einer Ausstellung is a particular favorite.
I think my Mom had a crush on Leonard.
Excellent selections. I never even thought of classical music. I could not think of anything before, but might just come up with some selections now.
I love Copeland’s music. He wrote the score for the 1940 film Our Town.
I heard classical, standards, top 40, country, and probably kinds of music growing up. I think I was fortunate in that regard.
A nice departure from the norm…. whatever that is..
Thank you, Dear Lady!
Lazarium worthy, even.
I’m pretty sure sure #1 was Mozart’s last before kaput! Nice choice.
#2, much like Tchaikovsky. Like it.
#3, Should have started at the 5:00 mark. Then it picks up!
Nice choices, Abigail, but I wouldn’t want to ride cross country with you! 🙂
I think my favorites are Bach in harpsichord. But I’m weird….
The clarinet solo starting at the 12:30 mark is maybe my favorite in all of classical music.
Who else here read about Baba Yaga as a child but didn’t know Mussorsgsky? I loved that story about the spinning hut on chicken legs.
What a national treasure, Aaron Copeland.
So glad you all approve of my choices tonight.
Meerkat: Oh, I’ve got traveling music, too. Nothing like good ol’ (old) western music for those long, empty stretches of hi-way. 😉
Great way to spend an hour AA. The problem is that I see related music on the sidebar and that hour stretches into two or three. Excellent choices none the less.
Carpeye D’um — Sounds like a nice problem to have, huh? I know what you mean. But it does beat falling down the YT rabbit hole of looking at funny cat compilations. 🙂
Nice! Love Pictures, so powerful. The 12:30 part is one of my favorite too, and the finale, Great Gates of Kiev.
