Day 16 - One of your favourite classical songs:

To start with, there aren't really songs in classic music. Songs imply singing. Classical has pieces which are played. And the last 15, in case you failed to notice, have all been classical pieces...


Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending
jackjanderson: (Milky Way Blue)
I've seen a few people make this type of post, talking about what music they've been listenening to over the course of a week. I don't listen to enough music to do it weekly so I thought a monthly post would work for me.

According to my last.fm stats, my top played artists in March 2017 were:
Giacomo Puccini
Sergei Rachmaninoff
Sir Edward Elgar
Camille Saint-Saëns
César Franck
Gabriel Fauré
Georg Friedrich Händel
Ludwig van Beethoven
Ralph Vaughan Williams
Robert Schumann
I'm surprised Puccini was higher than Rachmaninoff - he does tend to be my favourite. I'm surprised Beethoven & Williams were so low in the list but it's interesting to see what I've been listening to laid out like that

There were no albums or tracks I listened to more than any others, nor any that stood as being a particular favourite but I'm going to try and make an effort to note down favourites in April

Currently I am lstening to Hoedown from Rodeo by Aaron Copland

About Me

I'm Jack, a recent retiree looking for a new hobby. Apparently 'annoying my girlfriend' isn't the best use of my days. Her opinion, not mine

I'm a life-long science-fiction and superheroes fan, and a voracious reader. I enjoy movies, fishing, astronomy, and gardening.

I live in Wales with my wife, our girlfriend and an ever growing collection of four-legged friends.
