I have a battered old cassette deck in my car. Rather unwisely I have started to listen to my old collection of personal favourites while driving in and out of Norwich and Cromer. Today it was the turn of Prokofiev - his first Violin concerto and Cinderella music. Is there a more exquisitely delicate piece of orchestral scoring than the return of the main theme in the first movement of the concerto? If there is, I don't know it. It could melt the heart of a mass-murderer. What a wonderful, amazing, miraculous thing music is!
This blog is used for promotion and discussion of new music by a group of composers who met on internet some years ago because they used the same notation software, and became friends for quite other reasons than just that fact. Visitors are welcome to post comments to the blog entries. However, spam and unsigned, pointless and offensive comments will be removed.
