Spring Time Joy

Today is officially the first day of Spring. That's probably why it's snowing with a slap-you-in-the-face horizontal wind! I guess Spokane will try again next month.

My time has been spent slogging not only through blizzards and slosh, but through a deluge of responsibilities which school and work have presented. My Lecture Recital was excellent (post on that coming soon), but dominated my time. Now I'm paying for it by writing two very time consuming papers for Historical Analysis and Music of the Renaissance. On top of that I'm accompanying a vocalist for juries, pondering further gradschool options, and playing piano for Go Dog Go! Oh, and I got a nasty cold and shared it with Jessica. Things are busy and I'd better stop blogging and get to work.

One thing before I go. My preludophilia has lead me to the Estonian composer Eduard Tubin. He didn't write a complete set, but his music is lovely. He resonates with a Debussy/Scriabin style of prelude writing, and reminds me more of the former as his pieces can be both atmospheric and dancing. Cool Estonian folk tunes and excellent climaxes. Give it a go!
