An evening pause What good musicians do in their spare time, play Pachelbel’s Canon in D at 3 am in the morning, without rehearsal. Or as they themselves describe it, “The Most Juicy Canon On YouTube!!!”
The violin players (r to l): Marie Samuelsen, Andrey Rozendent, and Alexander Gilman.
An evening pause: Though this took place last week, on the fiftieth anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s flight, I can’t let it go by, especially because it is so nicely done. Trust me, for two flute players to play a duet with one several hundred miles up in space and traveling more than 17,500 miles per hour while the other is safely on Earth is not easy.
An evening pause: Chorus by Robert Burns c1795, verses by Eddi Reader and Boo Hewerdine.
Oh the lights in this city are like diamonds
The street lamps, the signs and the cars
Though it’s bright in the city what are diamonds?
When they’re turning out all of our stars.
