Sounds from the 18th Century  

Before you start wondering, yes, it's that day of the year again, and as I just learned from cavendish's mum, I do not only share the date with the much admired late Douglas Adams but also with German actor and quiz master Blacky Fuchsberger *g* Lots of thanks to everyone who congratulated and wished me a good time! So far, I've been having the most wonderful day, even the weather is playing along. Bright, cheerful skies, temperatures made for crocuses and the first blooming trees.

After an exquisite breakfast and the obligatory unwrapping of a few, carefully selected, well-chosen items, cavendish and I headed off to attend a Baroque chamber music concert. Various composers. Historical instruments, ranging from violin over a wooden transverse flute to harpsichord. I wished I possessed the musical knowledge write anything detailed and sufficiently coherent about the composers and individual pieces. But as I unfortunately don't, you'll have to live with the short version.

Absolutely wonderful music, very harmonious and even-paced. There were an awful lot of pleased, happy faces and even a moment of laughter, caused by a cello with stage fright, whose A string kept sliding off the bridge *g*

really glad you like the concert idea (I thought it quite enjoyable myself, despite my occasional nagging remark about chamber music ;-). I do like Baroque music, but don't tell anybody :-)

I do like birthdays, too :-)

Thanks for that nice entry :-))

Enjoy the "well chosen" ;-)) DVDs

Again thanks
