Music in Durham

Tchaikovsky – 1812 Overture

Another choice by my son, for both piece and performance, and they’ve sparked off several trains of thought that have made me smile.

Stanford – Magnificat in C

This has always been one of my favourite settings of the Magnificat and as you can guess from the photo, we had it at our wedding.

Beethoven Piano Concerto No1

Beethoven’s first piano concerto has a cheerfully syncopated rhythm that brings a smile to one of my regular readers, and made me happy today.

Bruckner Symphony no.7 Scherzo

We went for a longish drive up to Hadrian’s Wall today, so today’s happy tune is one that reminds of childhood car journeys.
