I met someone today who reminded me so much of Joyce DiDonato I had a hard time concentrating. So here is Joyce for your Octavian Tuesday.
In honor of glorious the full moon.
Seriously, there are lots of red beds in Rosenkavalier productions.
I guess some people don’t like chocolate? I cannot imagine why.
I heard this piece, “Longing,” the 2nd movement of Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova’s Concerto for Cello and Strings on the radio the other day, and wow is it gorgeous. In fact it left me speechless and near tears, and if I hadn’t been driving I might have broken down completely.
You can read the composer’s thoughts on the piece here. I am going to have to get that album. She is a new composer to me and I will be checking out more of her work. Wow.
A new feature perhaps? Mostly I just love this photo.
