“You know, I love the sunset when I am very sad…” – Antoine de St Exupéry
Even though the day in Perth today started out with rain and wind, the afternoon was simply beautiful. I walked along the banks of the Swan River and enjoyed the serenity of it. As the afternoon wore on into the evening, the sun set and the air became cool again. I then felt quite far away and a little lonely…
Here is the perfect piece for that wistful feeling as the orange fire of the sunset gives way to the blues and mauves of twilight: The second movement of Marcello’s concerto for oboe and strings.

  1. I lived in Perth for a few years (for work) and loved the beaches, the outdoor lifestyle, Fremantle etc. But mostly I loved the Swan River and King's Park.
