While last week I found the story of Joseph Boulogne Chavalier de Saint Georges’ life interesting, about 15 min listening to the piece I found my mind wandering as the music seemed a bit dull and repetitious. I suspect he may have been the Pat Boone/Donnie Osmond/KennyG of his era. Nothing wrong with that and we all need background music. But he ain’t no Mozart
So today we get to listen to Mozart
On todays selection I love the intricacies between the music and the instruments that continued to keep my attention. It was as if they were having a deep conversation among themselves.
BTW, I’m not a trained critic, once 40 some years ago I took a music appreciation class, paid little attention, took my C and went home. So the current observations should always be considered in that light.
