All Strings Attached (Sunday Song Series)

A bit of a digression… doncha just love that Statue of Liberty still shot above? Moving onward…

With our Sunday Song Series now at Week #61, for a change of pace, let’s talk classics. Why classical music? My brief bio…

My parents are to blame for introducing me to Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz as a wee preschooler. My Sixties, hippie dippy roots and, later on, EZ listening background also come into play. In fact, while typing this very blog, right next to me is a CD tower where filed under “S” there’s the epitome of diversity… e.g., recording artists such as Sting, Stooges and Strauss. Seeing how so many genres can harmoniously coexixt in my world, perhaps classical will play out well in your world, too?

As for the specifics, we’ll be giving a listen to Symphony No.3 a.k.a. The Sunday Symphony by William Grant Still… a.k.a. “The Dean” of African-American composers.

While I’m offering Movement I (The Awakening), above (for the folks with time constraints), as for the classical connoisseur (and/or folks who have time to savour their music), check out Maestro Still’s masterpiece… in its entirety… below…

Our adventure into the world of Sunday titled songs will continue… 7 days from now…
