After a brief intermission, the Carnival of Music is back. No Harry Potter this time, instead I'm going for some poetry.
Play to the children, they love to dance
or listen carefully as you sing about cats.
Listen to Billings, his choral music filled with gusto
or Malcolm Arnold's last symphony before he went nutso.
Do Faerie write music like Tolkein?
Search Live365.com and you may learn.
But beware that downloading may leave you listless.
Instead, visit LaMonte and the other minimalists.
What is a salon? Not a metaphore of composers as food.
Perhaps where pre-job musicians wait, when they don't stop performing for good.
Reviews are always nice, whether of Leatherface or Mozart's Hoffner.
Likewise observed differences between "Ben Bag Bag" and "Oz V'hadar."
Ballet should not use recorded music as is,
herding notes in Lubbock can irk Jeremy Denk,
Courses on chamber music are quite different from English,
and judges piss you off when they say "phone my agent."
Thanks to John for letting me host, and to Don, Tim, and Fred for submitting entries. Apologies for horrible meter, and a plea for more carnival hosts. It is a fun way to learn about new blogs, and a good way of boosting your hits. I got a big bump from my last Carnival, and a valuable link from John.
