The You Tube Symphony Orchestra which draws on musicians from all over the world is new to me. I encountered it looking for a link to Benjamin Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. I thought that this piece of music sub-titled Variations and Fugue on a theme of Purcell might be a useful contribution to the discussion initiated here by Stella, which I am incidentally greatly enjoying and learning from. I wonder if E would like in particular this rendering of a stirring piece of music. The piece, takes the listener and the viewer through the whole spectrum of orchestral instruments. It may not be the best performance ever, but you can watch and listen. And it is not too long.
In the hospital today where they are still probing my Polymyalgia Rheumatica I comment on the brand new Siemens X-ray machine. What did it cost? About the same as a three-bedroom house in Tunbridge Wells, I am told.
