Yes, sorry, get on with the ears!
OK, in the car on the way to work this morning:
Nirvana - Nirvana (a perennial fave)
At work on the iPlayer, from the Proms:
Berlioz - Overture Benvenuto Cellini, La Mort de Cleopatre
Mendelssohn - "Hymn of Praise"
(ah, Mendelssohn. My relationship with Mendelssohn is slightly complicated. At one stage in my life I was going to become the world's Mendelssohn expert. Hmmm! My relationship with this piece is even more complicated - I had to sing the soprano solo part in it in a concert one night for my ex-boyfriend, who had subsequently become my music teacher. I REALLY didn't want to be there because I wanted to be at a dinner in Oxford getting very drunk. Ho hum, such is life.)
So, I set off on my constitutional without Mendelssohn, but with:
Pendulum - In Silico
(just wonderful. VERY happy walk. Memories of a fabulous gig last November).
Then back to the iPlayer and, following a link from a tweep:
Ravel - Serenade Grotesque (from Composer of the Week)
Then checking out my facebook inbox, a message led me to:
which was the most disturbing thing I've heard in a long time. Much stranger than Mendelssohn by FAR!
In the car on the way home:
The Kills - Midnight Boom (playing this leads to an extremely happy Wonderspouse)
Reverend & The Makers - The State of Things
At home, my newly arrived, signed by Rev, CD had arrived:
Reverend & The Makers - French Kiss in the Chaos.
So there you are! Today's ears.
