Smoking Monkberry Moon Delight
Happy easter, fellow Christ cucks!
For sunrises, I think of the Lever du Jour from Daphnis and Chloe, and although it's not explicitly a sunrise, the end of Gurrelieder (Sieht die Sonne)."Sunrise". You think Richard Strauss, Grieg and Beethoven, perhaps Nielsen (Helios Overture), Britten (Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes), and D'Indy (Jour d'été à la montagne) too.
Hamelin might be a Canuck, but no greater interpreter of the (Australian) Percy Grainger exists. I'm not a big piano person, but I go back to his Grainger time and time again: he just "gets" the idiom of the music, and also manages maximalism without becoming grotesque (very difficult!).I don't realize Marc-Andre Hamelin has a Fazioli at home. Truly an instrument for the royalty.
Boyce's symphonies are frequently recorded, but his non-symphonic music, such as the anthems, deserve more attention:These are my favorite movements from different symphonies in Boyce's "8 Symphonies," all of which are among the most beautiful pieces I've ever heard. William Boyce is not well known for some reason.
