Welcome to Music Monday, where I share a little music with you. My plan is to post a link to some of my music or someone else's on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. It could be any type of music from art (classical) to up-and-coming musicians and colleagues, to mainstream pop. After all, it is part of music appreciation and musical growth! Enjoy!
This week, it's Camille Saint-Saëns's "Danse Macabre," a fitting piece for Halloween time! Listen for the harp at the beginning.
Below is a performance by Northern Illinois University School of Music's Philharmonic Orchestra.
MusOpen offers a some free downloads of this piece: the orchestral version recorded by the University of Chicago Orchestra, an accordion solo with accordion orchestra (So cool, right?! Give it a listen!) recorded by Paul de Bra, and the sheet music. There's a little but of interesting info on the piece and composer if you follow the link above as well. There are also some versions available through the Petrucci Music Library.
What are you listening to?
