If you are listening to music - What's Playing ? (2024)


Recommended Posts

It's 2030ish here. Just back from our NYE dinner in Prasat. As usual our favourite restaurant was closed. So we went to an outsideish cook-your-own-meal-at-table place. As usual my b/f selected at least 3 times more than we could possibly eat. OK but not quite what I'd had in mind. We managed to get thru about 3/4 of it ...


Now home and the village musaks are rumbling not too loudly, but loud enough with occasional pops of fireworks to not be worth putting on any decent music.


But if I did put on something (some 700 CDs of classical music) it would most likely be something in the range from Bach & Haendel thru to Schubert, but it could extend from Monteverdi to Rachmaninov. Extremely conservative musical taste by today's standards. The other problem though is that, if I did play something while my b/f is at home, he gets the giggles and starts conducting ... Which means I can play CDs only during the day when he's away at the farm (sigh).

Harking back to the old BBC 1940's of Music While You Work, then today have been playing off the iPod:-

Public Service Broadcasting - Inform-Educate-Entertain

Cranberries - Everyone Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?

Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers

Amon Düül II - Made in Germany

Yes - Fly From Here-Return Trip

Cat Stevens - Greatest Hits

Steve Hackett - Spectral Mornings 


Tomorrow I'll kick off with a bit of Genesys, Lamb Lies Down, Liverpool Empire, 19-Apr-1975.

Thanks. I presume you are referring to this: https://www.bbc.com/mediacentre/proginfo/2024/01/new-years-day-concert-live-from-vienna-2024

Downloading now from TGx.

That's the one. Can get it on iPlayer if you have VPN, and I think on You Tube

Andre Rieu also does a magical job, with prettier violinists!
