My iTunes: Fêtes galantes by Ian Bostridge

A good saying to think on today.

In between work and rehearsal today, I'm trying to spend some quality time working on my paper on opera in Philadelphia, and perhaps start rewriting the Latin paper that I lost when my computer died. I thought I'd take a quick break and share a picture, though.

And incidentally, I've been really enjoying learning the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). For those of you who aren't familiar with IPA, you'll see it in dictionaries -- they're the funky symbols that show you how to pronounce things. I've been having fun going through all sorts of foreign language songs. I finished Italian and German and am working on French now, so I'm enjoying a few playlists of French songs.

And now, back to work...

This is very cool... would like to hear the story behind it... when you find a few spare minutes, of course!
