I feel a warm feeling that we are all progressing nicely.

The mama looked down
And spit on the ground
Everytime my name gets mentioned

Always wondered what he and Julio did down by the school yard

I have a "thing" about starlings. "You are the only thing in any room you're ever in" - best line ever.

Great stuff.

Attended a wonderful, intimate concert last evening so I'm currently playing Kapsberger's Canario, Paganini's Cantabile for Violin and Guitar and Giuliani's Serenade in A major, which were all featured.

The concert was in a small venue with an audience of around 40, three musicians (violin, cello and theorbo/guitar) and entirely acoustic. It was a concert of two halves, but both were real treats with respect to the musicianship and programme.

The first half featured music from the baroque period, played on instruments reproducing the sounds of the period, so gut strings, less powerful bows etc. and featuring a theorbo.

The second half was music from the classical/romantic period, with the violin and cello more like modern instruments and a classical guitar, dating from 1850, replacing the theorbo. The guitar was very different to modern classical guitars, much smaller/quieter and with less sustain.

And, if you're wondering what a theorbo is, check this out;
