Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. I worked, as usual, and worked again today. An art model’s duties are ongoing. Tomorrow I have a much needed day off and I’ll be spending it doing my taxes. What a delight.
Anyway, I’m a little tired but it’s still Monday, which means I can still offer a post for “Music Monday”. Lately I’ve been really getting into the music of Gabriel Fauré. I’ve always been a huge fan of the French composers. Love them all equally I’d say. But hearing Fauré’s famous “Pavane in F-sharp minor” on classical radio the other day reminded me just how amazing he is. I think I prefer it to Maurice Ravel’s “Pavane for a Dead Princess”. A pavane is slow dance, which was popular in Europe during the Renaissance.
This video features Fauré’s Pavane with beautiful, haunting images of sculpture. I think they compliment the music very well. Enjoy, and I’ll see you soon 🙂
