  1. Vasily Kalinnikov (1866-1901) is a minor figure in the late Russian Romantic, dying very early of tuberculosis just shy of 35 years old. I first learned this Nocturne from a set of four pieces for solo piano at the end of my high school days and have treasured it since.
  2. Malaise deep in my heart for the world right now...

      It does seem like we've hit another new low...

      :hug:  But for now take a deep breath and decide what you can do with mayonnaise.

  3. My partner turned 40 yesterday. He had a good day, but I feel kind of like a let down that I couldn't host some sort of gathering for him. I know, impossible right now, but the feelings are still there. Maybe I can plan something for when times are better.

      I know it seems a platitude but really in this case it is the thought that counts. You chose to wait until a later time, what better gift than keeping him and your family and friends safe.

      What @dughlas said, Lux. We have to adapt on a daily basis, but it's for the good of all of us. :hug: 

  4. Just a short excerpt from one of Nicolas Clerambault's cantatas.
  5. Claude Vivier was a Canadian composer and world traveler who came from a poor background. He studied with Gilles Tremblay and Karlheinz Stockhausen. His music is very interesting, but modernist in approach.
  6. On the recommendation of an aikido sensei who I respect highly, I started working on bokken sword swings on my balcony today, since I actually have enough space out there. Felt a bit like an idiot. Good training, or martial masturbation?

      No. I just feel out of place, like I'm probably doing it wrong so why should I bother in the first place? I dunno. At least it's a good workout for the arms/shoulders/core.

      Good body? Ha ha ha. My body needs some work. But thanks.

  7. A set of pieces for one and two harpsichords from the mysterious Gaspard le Roux, published around 1705.
  8. Welp, looks like I might have a lot more time on my hands starting now. Maybe I can get back to finishing Running for Home? Sigh.

      The like is for the prospect of more Running for Home. Hope the reason isn't anything bad. :hug:

      Probably laid off from my job. There was some confusion because my boss is new and may have messed up a seniority based process that should have given someone else the work I was assigned at the college for the summer semester. Will find out soon. Supposed to be getting a call from my boss's boss to explain what's going on. I am okay and can adapt, it just came about in a somewhat unsavoury way with an HR person contacting me to tell me there had been a mistake and I shouldn't be working because I'd been laid off 2 week ago (and I wasn't) then telling me there had been a 'malfunction' in the email that I was supposed to receive (bullshit), even though I'd been assigned work by my boss. Whatever. Life moves on, and as soon as things start to get back to normal I will have my job back. So... September? At least in Canada we have some government supports for the situation at hand.

      I totally can relate to that... Inexperience people doing top jobs can create a lot of "misunderstanding" causing unnecessary laid offs....  But that's the way the world functions, and we don't want to commit the sin of invidia, so usually we just move on rather than incur some melodrama... (like the world politics nowadays).  Hoping it's not too hard on you.  If I were rich, I'd... nevermind, I don't want to be a sugar daddy.  LOL

  9. Some Mozart for a Monday.
  10. I can't believe it's snowing again! I thought shitty late April weather would go away with last year. We had such a nice March this year, by comparison.

      Hey, Lux.   :hug:  We're in the same boat, you and I. It's almost May, but there's still snow on the ground!   :(

      Hey Lux, sorry for my laughing like :unsure:. I can relate as we have 2 or 3 nice days of warmer weather and then a day of rain that turns into snow. So what can you do? Laugh :gikkle:
