View Full Version : Let's hasten to the revelry
H A P P Y N E W Y E A R !!!
I am trying to keep this kicked until the New Year!
From The Marriage of Figaro (Act 4, Scene 10 - Finale)
This day of torment,
Of caprices and folly,
Love can end
Only in contentment and joy.
Lovers and friends, let's round things off
In dancing and pleasure,
And to the sound of a gay march
Let's hasten to the revelry.

Let's hasten to the revelry!
I've had the privilege to do the sound and lighting for [link:www.operasj.org/home0607.html|Opera San Jose] on a few occasions, mostly at their annual 'Operafest' fundraiser held every May. I have some wonderful digital recordings of those performances but I haven't taken the time to rip them into mp3 format for posting. Perhaps I'll try to rip a couple of numbers to post for New Years day.
For now, how about some music from a lovely brass quintet?
The Empire Brass Quintet
The following was recorded live on October 22, 2005 at the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Saratoga, California. This was recorded straight off the board stereo output with no EQ or effects, and no post production done afterward. Enjoy!

New Mozart work' gets premiere
Performance of new work attributed to Mozart, 29 Dec 06
A recently discovered 18th-Century keyboard work believed to be one of the earliest by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has been performed in Austria.
The piece - about two minutes long - was played by Florian Birsak on a harpsichord in the Salzburg Residenz.
The discovery came in the 250th anniversary year of Mozart's birth, which was marked by festivities in his homeland and Mozart concerts worldwide.
Experts think Mozart wrote the piece when he was aged between six and 10.
It bears the title Allegro di Wolfgango Mozart and was contained in a volume of anonymous manuscripts given to Salzburg Archdiocese archivist Ernst Hintermaier, Austrian media report.
The reports did not name the person who donated them.
Mozart (1756-1791) was a child prodigy. He composed his first symphony before the age of 10 and his first successful opera by the age of 12.
Before his early death he had created hundreds of solo and orchestral pieces, inspiring the likes of Beethoven and Wagner.

I love the garden gazing ball painting.
We have one of those balls, it came with our house. It has been in this garden for years and years, and the previous owner couldn't bear to remove it when she left.

I know the calendar is rather arbitrary but I really hope this New Year is a time for serious change.
Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are. ~Bertold Brecht
