On Saturday I had the opportunity to play probably my favorite symphony of all, and as long as we're talking about our inspirations I thought I should post a great performance of it here.

This symphony is just fun. There are memorable melodies in every movement, and plenty of drama without getting bombastic or long-winded. Borodin composed it while he was also working on his opera Prince Igor, which takes place in Central Asia, so not surprisingly it takes a lot of inspiration from the music of that region.

Very nice listening during breakfast this morning !  [ Makes a change from Brexit news.... 🙂 ]   If I had to make a choice, I'd say my favourite was the 2nd movement, but really enjoyed it all the way through!

Thanks for sharing that !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
