I think what I like most about this photo is that it looks the way playing cello feels—it’s simultaneously so much movement and so much stillness. I feel and hear, on a visceral level, a particular section of a Brahms sonata, just from this image.

songstersmiscellany:

Shakespeare plays and sonnets performed using 400-year-old Original Pronunciation.

This video demonstrates why historically informed performance can be so illuminating.  Puns and lewd jokes, hidden in RP, leap out when performed in certain versions of OP.  Rhymes that don’t work in RP, do in OP: love vs. prove, speak vs. break, etc.  The ca. 1600 OP is so rich sounding; I would love to hear a production using it!

HBBO asked about unexpected “classics”.  Here’s one.

YIIIIS. I use this in class and lost the video and now here that motherfucker is!

The ever graceful and elegant, Julie Andrews.

In 1964, Julie Andrews accepted her Best Actress Golden Globe for her role as Mary Poppins. Before filming Mary Poppins, she was considered for the role of Eliza Doolittle, before it was passed on to Audrey Hepburn. In her acceptance speech, she thanks Jack Warner for seeing Hepburn as a more “bankable” choice, thus allowing her to go on to play Mary Poppins. [x]

So I realize I almost never do this—this is mostly a reblog blog with commentary hidden in far too many tags—but considering that I have a running tag about dance, would anyone be interested in my doing a series of posts about dance? I admit that I know very little, so it would still probably be largely reblogs of photos, but instead of tag explosions I could actually write up my thoughts and feelings about music/dancers/companies/choreographers/pieces, as well as some of my own experiences dancing. So, yes/no as to interest?
