Don't worry, this isn't part of a plan to overhaul Robosexual into a classical site. But I've had this song stuck in my head since I saw it played at a recital in London. And you have to admit that no matter what your taste in music, it can always use a little more Bach.
At Benaroya the other day part of the program was a tribute to John Williams, the composer behind, well, most film scores. The music was good but there must have been something like 35 instruments playing all at once, not to mention a 50-piece choral ensemble. I had to run home and listen to this beautiful, straightforward piece for two instruments whose haunting melody pursued me all the way from the UK.
I love the harpsichord, which is part of it, but I also love how capricious the melody is, going from somber to uplifting in the space of a trill. We'll be return to our normal programming shortly, but in the meantime hit the link and see if it tickles your fancy.
