Jenkins definitely was a fab symphony to sing in the Royal Albert Hall. Impressive tones in an impressive place.

And Rutter. Also amazing.

I will put them on.

It's been a good 26ish years since I played in the Albert Hall but yes, the acoustics are incredible. Sung a lot of Rutter in my time. And madrigals. A lot of madrigals.

Unfortunately, the acoustics at Sandringham Palace weren't up to much, but Her Majesty seemed to enjoy her private recital nevertheless.

So private that Her Maj was actually at a Pizza Express in Cromer.

Re: What are you currently listening to?

Music from the 80s as I'm going to an 80s theme party on Saturday night. I dip in and out of music, but when I'm ironing it has to be classical Spanish guitar.

When I'm feeling fed up I put on Rock Lobster by the B52s and dance like crazy to it, works at cheering me up every time

Waldstein by Beethoven. Got the partitions, gotta memorize it.

It is amazing and so was Waldstein.

Rothko, earlier today.

Re: What are you currently listening to?

In my case this thread should be called 'What are you still listening to?'

If you know, you know...



Andras Schiff will be performing Clavier Book II on 9 Feb @ Tonhalle in ZH.

Sometimes I feel though, that this is where my mind will end up
