This week I got music.
I got awesome classical music -- and the next night -- I got to see Kitty perform in Beauty & the Beast (more music).
First up, Joshua Bell performing Beethoven with the Academy at St. Martin in the Fields. I love Beethoven. Especially the symphonies. And with this performance, I heard things in the 7th Symphony that I'd never really heard before.
I've listened to this version (von Karajan directing the Berliner Symphony Orchestra) countless times.
Bell does something deliciously different, so it was familiar and new at the same time. I love it when musicians do that!
I'm still missing my "mindless" knitting -- so no progress was made on the AWOL Hopeful Socks. Luckily, The Beethoven was so good I hardly missed it.
And the next night, I saw again why our school's drama department is so well known. We had a packed house for the third formal performance of Beauty & the Beast. Alas, I have no pictures, but it was GREAT.
I still had no knitting, but I did spend part of the time waiting for the show to start (and intermission) winding a skein for a new project.
I'm so lucky.
Gratitude for the day: I'm so grateful to not be tone deaf!
