It's been MONTHS since I have showcased something awesome on WILW. Aren't you curious? Aren't you dying to know what I am loving this week? Thought so. What am I loving?
(sigh of disappointment...) Truly! We all know that I played the cello in High School and I have always enjoyed classical music, but lately I have rediscovered my love for it. And not just string symphonies, but Opera has crept up and made me adore it. It can be so beautiful. Go listen to a smidgen of these songs - I know you will recognize them. They are my favorites right now...
Nocturne No. 2 in E-flat major, Op. 9 - Chopin.
I am currently learning this song on the piano. It reminds me of Summer evenings. Hopefully I will master it so I can play it with the windows open at dusk some night.
Clair de Lune - Debussey.
I have loved this song since I was little...so pretty. I also found an operatic version of Clair de Lune that is Heaven.
I know...OperaBabes? Really? Trust me, it's great.
Chi il bel sogno di Doretta from La Rondine - the version I have is sung by Kiri Te Kanawa.
THIS song. This beautiful, glorious song...it brought tears to my eyes. Have you seen 'A Room With A View'? Of course you have. Remember the lovely scene when Lucy comes upon George in a barley field? And when he sees her he comes over and kisses her? Such passion! Such forbidden love! This is the song that accompanies that wonderful scene.
