I Need Baroque!

Just found this CD at the Library.  Baby Needs Baroque, a 1998 collection (there are a ton in the series) You can buy it from Amazon, Target, Overstock.com, etc.  You can check out snippets from the songs and purchase for an MP3 player at many different links, here is one at Amazon.

Now, I bring this up, not because I work for the Baby Needs company or anything, but because;

  1. That is a seriously funny picture.
  2. Before I began this website, and started studying composers, I was never into Baroque music.  Now, I cannot get enough of it.  I’m serious.
  3. Lately, when I’ve wanted to calm my sweet, yet hyper, daughters down I’ve been putting in this CD – works like a charm.
  4. I’ve found a new favorite Baroque composer  – Georg Philipp Telemann, all of the new songs that captured my attention on this CD was his.

I’ll share my favorite Georg Philipp Telemann piece that was featured on the CD. Adagio from Concerto in D Major for Trumpet and Orchestra.  The trumpet is hauntingly beautiful.

This is a youtube video, poor video quality, but the sound is lovely because of the acoustics from the Church that they are practicing in. Brian Shaw, Baroque trumpet, in rehearsal with the BelleMeade Baroque Orchestra in Nashville, TN,  December 2008.
