Here is the incomparable Julia Fischer playing Vivaldi’s Winter from the Four Seasons (with bonus encore at the end).

One thought on “Selection of the week

  1. pretty fast and nice tho i rarely listen to that kind of music. i’ve heard bluegrass bands that also play fast, and also rock. i play both somewhat fast and slow but my stuff is so minor and fairly dissonant and primitive i usually get told to stop playing. people want to hear something positive, pleasent with major chords and nice melodies like elevator music or TV ads. i usually start out with something like that (summertime, peter paul and mary “leaving on a jet plane’, blue skies (willie nelson) , etc.) but then it switches into something more like Sid Vicious’s version of the Sinatra tune ‘my way’. (i combine my ‘jet plane’ version with 911 mythology —and i remember that day—i was going on my morning walk up the mountain (about 1600 ft straight up) and stayed to hear the news; i noticed that day there were no planes in the sky, so i guess there’s a silver lining to every cloud or something). (Sid was out of control apparenlty ). Stravinsky also had some dissonance and non-traditional harmonies, etc.
