Day One Hundred and Seventy-Four

I was planning on just recording two songs today but when I played through them, they sounded really nice together. So I put them together! This is “Valse Triste” and “Sicilienne” from the same book as yesterday.

Day One Hundred and Sixty-Six

Happy Fourth of July! I am not a huge fan of our national anthem (sorry) and if you’re from the USA you’ve probably heard it 1000 times by now, perhaps just today. So, here’s a little Civil War tune you’ll probably know.

Day One Hundred and Sixty-Five

Today’s upload is giving me issues (hence the posting at 12:15am with no video), so this post is a placeholder until the video is up on Youtube.

Tonight’s selection is “Rigaudon” from Handel’s Water Music. Please stay tuned!!

EDIT: Video is up now!

Days One Hundred and Sixty-Three & One Hundred and Sixty-Four

Double post today. I played a movement from a Marcello sonata the other day and it got me curious, so I found the rest of the sonatas from his first opus and I’m going to try them out over the next few weeks. These are the first movements of the first two sonatas.

“Adagio” from Sonata #2 in e minor

“Largo” from Sonata #1 in F major (“1st repeat good, 2nd repeat not so good”)

Day One Hundred and Fifty-Nine

Just a quickie tonight: a minuet adapted from Harpsichord Sonata #8 by Thomas Augustine Arne. I might explore the variations at a later date! (Also when I have a violin…)

Edited to add: I know this is posted on the 28th but the video went up a few minutes before midnight so I’m counting it as the 27th!!

Day One Hundred and Fifty-Eight

A little over a year ago, I made this post on my other WordPress blog. It’s about how a good story helped me work through something that happened in my past. Today’s selection (recorded last week, since I was traveling today) is a followup to that post. I was inspired to do so after meeting the creative team behind the podcast I talk about in that original post. This is the third theme from “Jupiter,” a movement in Gustav Holst’s The Planets, and it’s not perfect, but it’s a tiny thank you to them. I hope you enjoy.
