Concerto Caledonia gave several lovely performances of pieces by Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre including this as a wee encore on Thursday....
And on Friday L'ENSEMBLE MAGNÉTIS put on a cracking show. They like to bob and weave about while playing and lead violin/conductor Sébastien BOUVEYRON's introduction to they encore of this Kurt Weill tango, written in exile in France, was as good an argument for voting Remain - in terms of cross-cultural co-operation - as anything else I've heard recently:
(Here's an articulate economic argument for voting Remain too, btw.)
When I listen to classical music I like to figure out what I can borrow as a composer *adjusts cravat*. Meanwhile I've been making music for a new TV quiz show. How would a 17th century composer approach the perfect Buzzer sound?
On Tuesday I saw "Love And Friendship". Fun, well-cast, nice locations, good music. (Watch out, Barry Norman).
Over 2k plays for this. Hooray.
Oh and look at this. I'm could have sworn my email said something about us all dressing like The Pogues...
