I love this artist, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who, you have to admit, was very creative using fruits, vegetables and grains to create people. I love it. We are now getting into the halfway point in October...jumping Jehosaphat!! I can’t believe where we are already! Soon we will be seeing Halloween stuff beside Christmas stuff...Er...I did already see that, so...never mind. Ok here are my 3 Autumn music pieces that I enjoy listening to. The last one is a recent love, but I do enjoy hearing it.
1. AUTUMN FROM THE 4 SEASONS BY VIVALDI WRITTEN IN 1718-1720
I love the 4 seasons by Vivaldi and put it on always around this time especially in the car when I travel through some beautiful scenery. There are many variations to the 4 seasons but I found this one, with the tempo, just right. The violinist is the great Frederieke Saeijs, from The Netherlands, performing with the Amsterdam orchestra, just a few of them, whobtruly know how to do this piece justice. It's 11 minutes but it's excellent.
2. AUTUMN LEAVES SUNG BY DORIS DAY- 1956
There are many versions to this song but I really enjoy this one sung by the great Doris Day. This song was written in 1945 by Joseph Kosma with French lyrics by Jacques Prevert and sung by Irene Joachim and Yves Montand but later, the lyrics were written in English by Johnny Mercer. There is the full instrumental version made famous by Roger Williams in 1955 that became a #1 hit.
3. OCTOBER TWILIGHT BY FRANKIE CARLE AND SUNG BY NAN WRIGHT-1947
This is a good song with a hint of Halloween. Funny, it was written in 1922 by Henry Hadley with lyrics added only in 1947 by Guy Wood. I love the cartoon.
What song makes you feel like going for a drive to see the fall colours?
