October 16 - Ups and Downs

Second page of Psalm 33 edited, following Harriet eventually out the door to Contra Costa,

Alameda, and


Clara to

Owen Lee's Mom's place

(he was raised in an Eichler!)

for his and Debbie's delightful Engagement Party with



Dick Kamprath, Jerry's Wife,

Rory Snyder, Glenn Appell, and lots of other friendly folks.

Home via the Peninsula, San Francisco, and Marin, thinking about Steven Clark's Facebook note...

"THE RULES: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing which albums my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks, and tag people in the note). If you've already done this, send me a link to your list."

Response upon returning...

"Music of Africa ( traditional musics east, west, north, south)
Songs of the Earth, Water, Fire, and Sky: Music of the American Indian
A History of European Music (Denis Stevens, Medieval compilation)
The Six Wives of Henry the Eighth (David Munrow)
J.S. Bach - Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites (Pinnock)
Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony No. 1 and No. 7 (Karajan)
Giuseppe Verdi - Rigoletto (Ponnelle, Pavarotti)
Arnold Schoenberg - Pierrot Lunaire (Laine)
Igor Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring (Monteux)
Sergei Prokofiev - Symphony No. 3 (Abravanel)
Dmitri Shostakovich - Symphony No. 5 (Ormandy)
John Cage - Sonatas and Interludes (with a very "calypso" No. 5)
The Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz
Philip Glass - Einstein on the Beach (original Tomato recording)
Roger Waters - Dark Side of the Moon / Wish You Were Here
Mark Alburger - Camino Real (Karl Coryat)

Whoops, that's 16...

(although I just went back and noted Steven actually listed 16, too!)"

... then later, also thought about adding George Crumb's Black Angels (original CRI recording) to the list...

Also later, did the two Deploration Passacaglia videos of the day: XIII. Chopin and

XIV. Verdi.
