Last winter, I posted this video:
Ugh! The music was totally wrong for the mood and intent of the video: A tribute to the late Polish keyboardist Wanda Landowska, a giant among musicians in the 20th Century, a fellow member of the cat companion cohort. In fact, it was Andy, peacefully asleep by my keyboard that January day, that reminded me of Wanda Landowska and her cat. I was charmed by that photo of the two, each on the harpsichord! I have the Landowska recordings. I almost expect there to be a faint purring in the background while she plays!
Today, Andy once again chose me as his morning companion, falling asleep at my arm while I played on my computer. It reminded me of the music on the tribute video. I’d failed to find a suitable harpsichord recording that wasn’t attached to all sorts of legal complications when I looked last winter, so attached the country piece that was inappropriate if kind of nice.
Reminded of that earlier issue with the music, I checked the royalty-free music site I’ve used since March-April of this year. The music I wanted had to be a harpsichord recording (I think of Landowska on that instrument, which she popularized after the instrument suffered a couple of centuries of limited use); I preferred it to be Baroque music (or “Classical” at the latest); and I preferred a piece composed by JS Bach if possible. Two out of three preferences came together in this re-edited version of the tribute video:
I am pleased!
