July 16 - Busy in Repose

Music Historians with selections from Robert Schumann to Alexander Borodin + the Disney Fantasia versions of Paul Dukas's The Sorcerer's Apprentice and Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring; the Pianists get Quiz 4, including the Dies Irae in solfege plus power chords. Lab time, with Doug again on the coffee run, recording

Esther Xerxes: I. Bring Queen Vashti

Back past the setting sun of the Chinese Wall,

Poverty Hills,

Lagoon Mountain,

and so on,

with a fairly extensive session at the pool on another comfortingly hot night, then orchestration of Esther: II. Why Don't You Make a Search to Find Some Young Beautiful Virgins?"
