I don't have much of a writeup for this one. I picked music that I felt was reflective and beautiful, and we listened to some of the tracks more than once.
The First track - the road to Aviles is a song from the Spanish Civl War.
A beautiful rendition of I'll be seeing you, sung by Billie Holiday, in 1944.
Benny Goodman & Peggy Lee - We'll Meet Again
Eric Whitacre, the master of beautiful dissonance.
What do we do?
Join us to be inspired by music from around the world, no preparation, prerequisites, or practicing required. I’ll read a short composer bio, highlight some historically relevant material or interesting context, we’ll listen to a piece of music, and then take the time to reflect on what we heard, ask questions, and explore.
