dSo I think I will start a new series of listening suggestions, "Morning Music Walks with Andrea"! What do you think, want to come along? This morning's listening and strolling suggestion comes by way of the fabulous Shalin Liu hall in Rockport, Mass., and with a program by harpist/composer Maeve Gilchrist joined by the Rasa String Quartet and guitarist Conor Hearn. I so enjoyed the "Harp Weaver" by Gilchrist, inspired by a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay. Perhaps because of my own Celtic roots, I have long loved Gaelic-inspired music, and this program of harp and strings made for some glorious listening while walking! I link it here; please give a listen (no judging if you choose to sit in a comfortable chair instead of walking!) and let me know your thoughts - Slainte!
So the treks in my laundry continue!! It has been my habit for so many months during the cold weather to walk on the treadmill in my basement most every morning. I look forward to, not just for the exercise, but for the fabulous company I have every day (Yes, Jack, I love you too, but that's not who I am talking about, haha!!). We have a wealth of concerts to view through many venues, including one that I signed up for (for free, although a small donation may be nice), which is Wigmore Hall. I can't tell you how lost in beauty I have been on so many occasions. The latest was this morning as I listened to the French pianist Cedric Tiberghien play a recital with a program fashioned around Armistice Day. I link it here, and I hope you will listen, learn, and enjoy as I did. You might also consider signing up for other concerts at this hall. Worth a good long walk on a treadmill, or someday outside when it warms up!!
