Today’s look at “Tunes I Love” shows a rather different side of Spike. I know I throw plenty of music your way under the genre of rock, but I also have an appreciation for classical music too.
Like all of us, music has to be matched to the mood, or sometimes we select our choice of listening in order to foster the mood we desire. Hmm, getting too heavy, ok, leave that train of thought right there, and move on…
Being an amateur rebel for the past five decades, I seem to have a natural affinity with anyone who throws off the rug of normalcy and goes out on a limb to escape the expectations thrust upon us all by society and the, dare I say it, ‘establishment’.
One such fellow rebel, albeit a tad more successful and talented that my good self, is one Mr Kennedy – that’s the cheeky chap from England who gives the violin a good thrashing, not one of the political clan hailing from the north-eastern states of America.
So in a break from my normal offerings…. here is Nigel Kennedy performing a spot of Vivaldi.
I hope you enjoy 🙂
