RrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrAH! What a smashing (hammers) intro!!

Evening, Bethany, ranjit and aficionados!
Avatar 8:05pm Bethany Ryker:

I think the translation is "Hummingbirds with colds"? Enrhume. like rheumatic?? Ideas anyone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Album name "Ludwig van" -- great Clockwork Orange ref! :)
Avatar 8:06pm Kurt Gottschalk:

ahhhhhhh kahhhhhhgel...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Matt from Springfield:

à français? Le Google says: "Nightingale colds"
Avatar 8:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

[ - paraphrases:]
JohnCale: In Academic music it would be called 'prepared instruments'...
ThurstonMoore: ...well - we just got really really cheap guitars second-hand & things - & they were only any good @ all for making *one* particular sound...
Avatar 8:07pm ranjit:

Yeah rhume is french for colds! I don't know about rossignols.
Avatar 8:08pm ranjit:

I like those paraquotes, RRN63.
  8:08pm Robert:

I was just looking in Wiktionnaire, and rossignol has a lot of meanings besides the songbird -- http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/rossignol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: You can either buy something that will make the sound you want, or alternately, you could just buy the *sound* :)

ranjit: +1 for "paraquotes"!
Avatar 8:10pm Bethany Ryker:

I'm recalling that Nightingale is correct....from a Stravinsky translation
  8:11pm Robert:

It could also be meaning #4 of rossignol, hence "Flutes with Colds".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Very high-scale piano hammers right there!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Robert, I don't read the français so well.
Or might it possibly mean "song with a cold" along the same lines?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Expression and rhythm, x100!
It's a challenge, but I'm glad when they work out performances of pieces that weren't intended to be performed.
  8:17pm JakeGould:

Bethany, is that your puppy?
Avatar 8:20pm ranjit:

Skis with a cold!
<-- also that there is MY puppy (emeritus)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Matt from Springfield:

You're right - very basic melody, not a lot else, but so beautifully minimal - *only* what is needed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm maestroso:

Good Lord, that Poulenc piece was gorgeous...
Avatar 8:24pm Bethany Ryker:

That is Skittles - my childhood companion!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Agree maestroso!
And this "Arches" as well, so moving!
  8:26pm JakeGould:

Skittles is an amazingly cute ambassador of… Cute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm maestroso:

Yes indeed, Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Originally for organ? This is a fine fine fine translation to cellos and piano!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm maestroso:

Bethany, love hearing your show live... even though I should be at rehearsal, nursing a cold and can't sing (and spread my germs to the rest of the choir)...
  8:40pm Robert:

Then, maestroso, you should've been singing along with the "Nightingales with Colds" or "Pipes with Colds", or whatever it meant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Matt from Springfield:

The Illness Symphony! Each movement can be devoted to a particular malady!

...not so much to ask, is it - ?? : ) ...
@ ranjit: ...how steady the study was...

Folks, sorry. Was distracted by the wordless beauty of “Alex from Target.” #AlexFromTarget twitter.com...

but not stodgy!

Thanks, Bethany!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Matt from Springfield:
