Actually, just the string section. Maybe the piano, too.
I’m enjoying a glorious morning…pottering around, doing embroidery and binding books, and soaking up the lush, heart-fattening sounds of Beethoven‘s 5th and 9th Symphonies, Bach‘s Brandenburg Concertos, some Impressionists, as well as some unusual classical-electronic-hip-hop fusion pieces.
Made a quick mix of some of the tracks on my breakfast menu this morning. Have a great day!
