    Despite the doom and gloom,I couldn’t help but feel happy this morning when the brightness drew me out to the garden.It was wonderful to feel the heat and admire the spring flowers and I was delighted to see and hear a beautiful bumble bee working his way through the blue of my grape hyacinth.
    My musical hours,today, have been dominated by Haydn’s splendid harpsichord concertos.

    Very pleasant if unusual Haydn trios which he had to compose for his patron Prince Nicholas Esterházy.The
    baryton was the Prince’s instrument of choice.It had seven bowed strings and ten other strings which could be plucked sympathetically. The Prince was a very competent player but not a master of his instrument as Haydn very rarely composed passages for simultaneous bowing and plucking.

    Bach, BWV 249: Easter Oratorio by JE Gardiner from a BBC Prom.

    Somehow, the Easter Oratorio usually passes me by without making a huge impact, but this year it's really made me sit up and take notice, for some reason. There's some wonderful music and this Gardiner performance is really rather good, even though I don't usually warm much to his slick style. Who knows if we'll even have the Proms, this year. :(

    Must try this one next:

    It looks smaller in scale than the JEG/Proms performance

    At the moment listening to the Building a Library archive through LMS with particular focus on Schubert’s Trout survey. Not sat and listened to this for a while but has always been a wonderful learning tool.
