A bit of a mix in today’s music, some very different styles. I’m wondering about whether to start adding some Spotify links into these posts, let me know if you think that would be useful.
- Domenico Cimarosa arr. Arthur Benjamin, Oboe Concerto in C minor. Arranged by Arthur Benjamin from four of Cimarosa’s keyboard sonatas (23, 24, 29, 31), a great piece, and not very hard. I conducted this in Trinity Term of first year with Hertford Orchestra.
- Steve Reich, New York Counterpoint.
- Gustav Mahler, Das Lied von der Erde.
- John Coltrane, Mr. P. C.
- The White Stripes, You Don’t Know What Love Is (You Just Do What You’re Told)
