After this inspiring weekend, I didn’t need anything particularly energizing to start my week. But, then again, it’s hard to refuse a shot inspiration when it falls right into your lap. Above, watch “Andante,” which the website Aeon describes as follows:
Andante (a musical term meaning ‘at walking pace’) follows the cellist Ruth Boden as she climbs 10,000 feet to a peak in Oregon’s Wallowa Mountains for a deeply personal, yet breathtakingly public solo performance. With her prized cello strapped to her back, Boden reflects on how she wants to do something with music that transcends the commonplace, and on the particular joy of playing from Bach’s cello suite at ‘the top of the world’.
Hope this helps you get to Wednesday. And, to reach Friday, we’ve added some other fine Bach material in the Relateds below.
