Classical Sunday: Scary Hodge-Podge

Allhallowtide is here!

Believe it or not, people have put up “scary classical music compilations”, and we picked one from a channel we frequently refer to.

So this week, rather than listening to one nice tragic requiem for the occasion, you will hear a snipped from many (refer to list below).

Wishing you all a decently spooky Allhallowtide!

Halloween or Hallowe’en is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day.  It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.

Classical Sunday: Boccherini’s Complete Cello Concertos

Luigi Boccherini’s style is characterized by Rococo charm, lightness, and optimism, and exhibits much melodic and rhythmic invention, coupled with frequent influences from the guitar tradition of his adopted country, Spain.

Something light for the first Sunday in October.

Luigi Boccherini (1743 – 1805) had a great affinity with the cello.  Each of the 12 concertos is a musical gem, well-suited for the instrument, delightfully light-hearted.  The Italian performers provide a sunny listening experience.
