Present and unaccounted for.

Janácek's Kreutzer Sonata, inspired by the Tolstoy story/novella of the same name, which in turn took its name from the title of Beethoven's 9th violin sonata.
  8:10pm Skirkie:

Love it. Love it.
  8:11pm HC:

First time listening in. Loved that last piece. Will be sticking around for the duration :)

hello all! glad to know you are out there and tuned in. Yes, please stick around. We'll be killing of Tybalt later and you don't want to miss it.

Never liked that Tybalt anyway.

...having a bloody good time...

Though Scarlatti was a keyboardist, I had to learn a couple of Scarlatti pieces arranged for classical guitar when I studied that as a kid. He lived and worked in the Iberian peninsula, and people have speculated that some of his musical ideas might have been inspired by guitar playing he'd heard in his years there. Anyhow, some of his keyboard work adapts well to the guitar...

Bethany, I think you want "Sanguinisch," which is probably the german spelling. Although I'm fond of 'sanguinish,' for those of us who aren't quite as sanguine as we could be.
