Musical Tour

Stuck for a theme idea this week due to a tour, so I'm following my nose to the music-->

Tui St. George Tucker: Second Piano Sonata (Peyote). She was best know for her recorder work and for microtonal compositions. The "Peyote" sonata is written for standard piano (no re-tuning). If you are curious about the microtonal music (compositions employing pitches that are between the standard "Do Re Mi" to which we westerners are accustomed), check out samples from this compilation CD.

Samuel Barber: Knoxville Summer of 1915. This particular CD has all vocal works on it; Barber has some great orchestral and chamber music that I'll have to feature later.

3: John Philip Sousa King Cotton, named after an old hotel (just in case you're wondering).
