3 Good Things (strings edition)

1. Minimalist fun with Stringfever.

2. Anne-Sophie Mutter playing Vivaldi's The Four Seasons (short compilation trailer).

3. Having a ten year-old daughter who will join a local string orchestra in the fall.

That was
1. very entertaining- was fun trying to identify the oldies.

2. very enjoyable- the music was nice and mutter even nicer.

3. very sweet- congratulations, proud mom.

I found out about Stringfever only yesterday - they're really funny! Mutter is fantastic even if the video is a little off. My daughter has improved on "Twinkle" a little since then; she was four.

Would love to hear a more recent recital should you care to post any audio or video files. Congratulations to daughter--it's really quite an accomplishment.

OMG. I see an electric violin purchase in my future. I hadn't watched the Stringfever vid when I last commented. They are HI-LAR-I-OUS. I was a little nonplussed at the great leaps in classical music chronology (where were Bach and Mendelssohn, I ask you?), though still incredibly entertained. Then the musicals, rock/pop, and movie music kicked in--how divine! Was that the Bond theme in the middle of In the Hall of the Mountain King? I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. May have to post this on my blog as well (with props to you) as I think as many people as possible should see this!

One word: ABBA.
