As I slowly engrave my song that I'm writing for soprano and piano, excited to continue it from a plan I came up with this morning on my walk to use this melodic material as part of another piece, I've been enjoying this string orchestra concert from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, playing three gorgeous strings works from Elgar, Corelli, and Grieg. I really wanted to share this video here as a way to mark the 2020 pandemic and the way concerts are right now (this one in the distanced audience-less orchestra style), and all three of these pieces are gorgeous and are helping me relax after being frustrated with Dorico as I engraved with that before switching back to Finale. I hope this concert brings you some joy as it has done for me in these difficult times. I've been starting to put on many virtual concerts now from YouTube, and enjoy viewing them on my second monitor I have in my room. I can share some more in the future if that's of interest.
On the 16th July, I watched this concert by the Philharmonia Orchestra (another London, UK orchestra) featuring a conductor I know well from the Proms (John Wilson), an orchestra I know well, and two pieces by Saint-Saëns and Vaughan-Williams, two more gorgeous works in the same style as the LPO's video. I thought I'd share this as well.
