BACK HOME... TO BACH
“A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.” - Benjamin Franklin
It’s good to be home again. Perth is such a long away! Flying there really drives home the point what a big country Australia is…
For Music Saturday something restful and beautiful. Voices from the past, reinterpreting Bach’s music vocally. The purists may be offended, but I think Bach would have approved, being the genius that he was and not afraid of innovation and variation (think of of how many arrangements of other composers’ music he made, and how many rearrangements of his own works for varying ensembles).
Here are the Swingle Singers performing the wonderful Sinfonia in G Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach.
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
