Piece of the week: Greensleeves

This piece was our soundtrack favorite growing up. (Al, this piece is close to heart ain't it?) This is an 18th century piece by Mozart, altho I think it is relatively short and I wish it was longer. It reminded me of the King Arthur era, where all are white and gay (gay as in happy, joyous, celebratorious (is that a word?)). And it is so never-ending-story theme. :) You know what I mean. ;)


So this week I present to you Greensleeves by Mozart.













** The first clip is the piece we usually play with the orchestra, and I thought was the original one, or maybe not...I don't know but the second one so reminds me of King Arthur. Dang I want to watch The Tudors.

Ah, Greensleeves -- such a simple piece, but capable of being so elaborate and beautiful at the same time!

I recently started listening to Oscar Peterson's work (and he did an awful lot), and on one of his albums is a Jazz-piano version of Greensleeves. It's lovely; look it up, if you can find a copy :)
