    Boccherini, Brahms, and Baroque Grass

    Here’s what was on the playlist tonight.

    Boccherini’s Cello Concerto #9 in B Fkat, G482
    Yo-Yo Ma, Pinchas Zukerman with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra
    This isn’t a link to that performance, but it give a taste of the first movement.

    Brahms’ Symphony No 1 in C-Moll, Op 68
    Günter Wand; North German Radio Symphony Orchestra
    This is a link to a 1988 Karajan recording. Not my favorite conductor.

    Appalachian Concerto
    Kruger Brothers & string quartet
    At last a full link to the actual recording. The music begins at the 2:50 mark.

    If you only listen to one of these pieces the Appalachian Concerto is my recommendation.

    Settling in with a the Grateful Dead for the rest of the evening from the Deadpod.

    Andi and I belong to a hiking group (Hoosier Hiker’s Council) that builds and maintains hiking trails in state parks, state forests, and nature preserves. Lots of sharp edged hand tools and a chain saw are involved in trail work – many opportunities for major and minor boo-boos. In addition most of us volunteers are retired folk. A couple of years before I joined the group a 70-ish volunteer had heart attack and died before help could arrive in spite of CPR being administered immediately by his partner. The hiking group offered to pay for some of us getting CPR and wilderness first aid training.

    So, I was off getting training in CPR & WFA on Wednesday through Friday. It was incredibly intense. My greatest hope now is that I never am in a situation where I have to apply it. I don’t even feel like I have enough knowledge to be dangerous.

    Hope you have a good weekend.
