"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
Thanks so much. Those things always make me cry.Ode to joy...putting together crib for first grandchild coming in January. What could be more joyous than that? It's a girl.
I hope she is happy and healthy and loves to chew on, and then read, books!
That was pretty spectacular..actually choked up a little. Could have used subtitles.Best euro that young lady ever spent.
I love how it built up to a spectacular end. Wonderful way to start the day...that made me happy, happy, happy.
Thank you for the link--made me smile through tears.
Joyous, indeed! Thanks so much. Such beauty unlooked-for is that much more affecting - both for the audience and for me.
Thank you, thank you, Janet. This Sunday is indeed shaping up as an Ode to Joy for me, and, as always, it is lovely to have musical accompaniment.Brenda B.
Nothing like a bit of interblogatory joy on this blustery Sunday. :)
You can't go wrong with Beethoven. :)I had to make my husband come watch this, not just for the music but to see the audience as well. We lived and performed in Europe for many years, and the audiences there were always marvelous. I'm not knocking American crowds by any means, but we're much more reserved here. Did you see how many observers (those not in the choir) were singing along?Thanks for sharing the joy.
I love that every time.Not quite so striking, but rather neat, is a number of young people with Cells doing the first Bach Cello Suite prelude on the subway (well, a subway, I don't know which one, though somebody in the comments seems to indicate Paris?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCu5HAEQ8RM
I loved the kid who climbed up the lamp post. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for sharing this joy.
Thank you for sharing, that was lovely.
I've seen this one before, but had to watch it again. I love how it just keeps getting more and more delicious. There's one older woman, a few minutes in, with a look on her face that says, "oooooh, this is gonna be good!" Nice!
Loved this. Gave me chills. Thank you for sharing.
