Variations on a Schumann Theme op. 23 - Brahms - Sharon Gunderson, Jo Ann Smith
Appropriate for polite company - only enough Sturm und Drang to peg its time period.
Quartet in E minor op. 30 - Tchaikovsky - Copenhagen String Quartet
The episodes allow their own existence to mature before allowing movement away. Nested doors open to new episodes. Concert Music Form at the height of ossification.

Graduale 'Locus iste'  - Bruckner - Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Eugen Jochum
Of the vertical extension of soul and its fleshly contingency.
Carnival - Dvorak - Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Vaclav Neumann
By the book - for use at the beginning of a generic symphony concert.
5 Preludes op. 15 - Scriabin - Michael Ponti
Ornamented impassioned immobility.

Suite #2 - Rachmaninoff - John Ogdon, Brenda Lucas
A bit of a yawn despite some valiant playing.
In Session at the Tintinabulary

Crestline 140914 - Keith Eisenbrey
Continuing my improvisation project, and folding the second half of the session over the first. The Crestline is a tenor banjo that found its way to me about 25 years ago.

Banned Rehearsal 869 - Pete Comley, Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Anna K, Steve Kennedy, Aaron Keyt, Neal Meyer
The whole gang came over to wish Aaron a happy journey. Pete brought a box of toys.

  1. Music is one of the most beautiful things we have in life. The ambiance can be set in any room by simply adding soft music in a restaurant or upbeat sounds at a worship service.
