    World Music can be so much more then location or time …
    it can also be about a universal soul

    Long ago and far away in Germany there was a little ditty for violin, written by someone named Herr Bach.

    Flying fingers is an understatement:

    • PatsyT says:

      Ahhh Kes, that Bach is one of pieces my daughter has played.
      I believe that is Hillary Hahn playing
      Check out Hillary Hahn playing the only Concerto that
      Finnish Composer Jean Sibelius ever wrote.
      Premiered in 1904

      • kesmarn says:

        Patsy, your daughter must be amazingly skilled! (Does she have anything on You Tube? I’d love to listen to her.)

        That is indeed Hillary Hahn. Is it fair that one person can be so beautiful and so talented at the same time?

    • bitohistory says:

      K’es, Bach, Brahms are you sure you’re not Lutheran? 😆

    Here is a piece to celebrate your evening. A favourite of mine. Debussy-Clair de Lune

  9. kesmarn says:

    Our brothers and sisters in Hungary have had a bad week. So this is for them.

    A friend gave me a recording of this melody years ago. If any of you have ever done choral singing, you’ll be able to tell how amazingly difficult this piece is and how easy these young girls make it look.

  10. boomer1949 says:

    From Raise the Red Lantern (1991) movie…one of my favorite films…

    • kesmarn says:

      boomer, don’t you wonder how Asian women singers get that childlike quality to their voices? It’s very charming, but I think my voice pitch was lower than that when I was 9 years old!

      • boomer1949 says:


        Heck, I’ve been an Soprano wannabe my entire life, Didn’t even help when the hormones kicked in and must be the reason it took so long to have my 2.5 kids. 😆

        You really need to see the movie. Takes place in the 1920’s. Can’t remember if it was shot in Hong Kong or Taiwan.

        • kesmarn says:

          Alto all the way here, boomer!

          I’ll have to get the movie onto my Netflix queue — which is getting ridiculously long. I’ve had “Ghost in a Shell II, Innocence” here at home for about 10 days and have only watched about 1/2 hour of it! At that rate, I’ll finish it by Thanksgiving.

          • boomer1949 says:

            I always wondered if it would help by sticking my fingers in an electrical outlet… 😆

            Warming up for the weekend, eh?

            • kesmarn says:

              I’ve thought of asking the neighborhood cats if any of them give singing lessons… 😀

              I knew three weeks ago it would be beautiful this weekend. How did I know this?
              Because I was scheduled to work!

              A friend is working Sunday for me (traded for the following Saturday), though, so I’m probably going to the Apple Festival near here. Fun!
