At my weekly library excursion last weekend (we call it "Wafflelibraryfriday" at our house - each Friday we try to cook waffles and visit the library - fun tradition!) I decided to pick up a few classical CD's to peruse. I am a lover of many types of music, but somehow I always come back to classical.
I picked up a CD of Barber's Excursions, and apparently I was not familiar with Excursion No. 3, because it was a new, beautiful discovery for me! The gorgeous harmonies and beautiful flowing melody drew me in, and then I was pleasantly surprised by the fun, syncopated rhythms. I think I may need to add this to my "Repertoire Wish List!" Take a listen!
