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,
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?"
