The lovely spring weather does have a downside, however. The pollen count! We're in the red zone here today and for the next several days, so I won't be going outside much. **sigh**
It's definitely spring! This morning, I heard baby birds chirping in the birdhouse on our front porch.

An unusually beautiful performance of the Vivaldi. It's often been said among musicians that Vivaldi wrote the same piece at least four hundred times -- meaning that he wrote to formula, never expanded his harmonic vocabulary, and used similar figurations and accompaniment patterns through his work. There's a lot of truth to that, but in The Seasons -- particularly this segment on La primavera (spring) -- a remarkable sensitivity and a good deal of originality in making musical "pictures" comes out wonderfully. The images accompanying this are some of the most beautiful -- and appropriate -- I've ever seen in a music video.I'd love to know who the performers were and where they came from, etc.
FT,Apparently, only you and I like "highbrow" music.
