Luigi Boccherini's "Fandango"

A reminder you can find great music on Youtube:

Caption: "The Carmina Quartet (Matthias Enderle, violin 1, Susanne Frank, violin 2, Wendy Champney, viola & Stephan Goerner, violoncello) plays the fourth movement ("Fandango") from Boccherini's Guitar Quintet G. 448 in D Major. With Rolf Lislevand, guitar and Nina Corti, castanets."

You can go to that web page and click on other performances of the same piece.

I think we need the uplift of music as we ponder the economic, political, and societal problems of the day. Got any other suggestions for video music postings?

Begninning reminds me of Boccherini La musica notturna d from Master and Commander. One of my favourites.

From what I've been able to figure out from reading the comments, this is the Sretensky Monastery Choir. I found the piece quite remarkable even though I am neither Russian nor Orthodox.

I do love recommending music. I don't have a lot of info on what you don't like, so I'm just tossing some things out.

Here's a video of McCoy Tyner playing Giant Steps by John Coltrane. Watching his fingers fly across those keys is just marvelous.

Híbakúsja by Ben Frost feels calculated to cause synesthesia. I recommend listening with some good speakers with solid bass. It should make your head pulse and your skin crawl.

These free downloadable songs, not videos, but Another Man's Vine by Tom Waits is one of many excellent songs available through his record label. If you're interested in indie rock, Spanish Gold, 2044 and A Hand at Dusk by Swan Lake come recommended as well.

Aurgasm is a great music blog. They usually have one or two downloadable songs per post. They mostly feature cleanly produced pop, world, jazz, folk, hip hop, and electro-acoustic music. Some representative examples with videos are Anything You Synthesize by American Dollar (post rock ambient), Fel del av gården by Movits! (Swedish swing hip-hop), and L'ours by Tricot Machine (Quebecois pop).

That's a stupid lot of music for one comment. Hopefully the descriptions are enough to let you know what to skip.

Wilhelm Kempff playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata mvt. 3.

This is incredible. Amazingly too, this has nearly 7 million hits on Youtube.

Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

The ability to perform this violin can be a thing that lots of people tend not to need to do yet you will discover those people selected handful of who have this musical technology ear canal as well as need to learn to perform one thing from the established music genre and also this certainly won't end up being an uncomplicated project.
