Fugal and Frugal

February 10, 2013

I’m allowing myself 10 minutes only to do this – it’s very much in the moment, as emotionally intelligent folk say. So this will  indeed be a frugal offering. And what prompts it is that, on a Sunday when I would rather be doing ANYTHING else at all, I have to do some work. With rugby on the tv that I would rather be watching, I’m avoiding the distraction by playing music which never fails to delight. OK, so I admit that it has distracted me sufficiently to spend a few minutes blogging, but the 10 minutes (6 left) I’ve allowed myself are but a fraction of the time I have given up – on a Sunday, I say again.

10 minutesAnd it’s worth it to direct you to Holst’s Fugal Concerto. Please, do take 8 minutes and 26 seconds to listen to this. You won’t regret it. It’s tuneful, lyrical, subtly orchestrated, technically very precise and exact. Holst was a great craftsman as well as a great artist. And he knew how to write for strings and woodwind.

Just enough time left to find the best link and a couple of pictures.
