This is not so much looking forward to what 2013 will bring as a little musical diversion inspired by a friend and a little overindulgence (as happens at this time of year) – an apt musical representation of a Scotsman heading home late in the evening.
Even the conductor gets in on the act. [If you want to listen to all four dances (especially the third movement) try this one as the young group in the previous video are very off in their tuning by the third movement due to warming expansion.]
For anyone else who spent today cleaning up after a party here is Malcolm Arnold’s A Grand, Grand Overture – scored for full symphony orchestra and organ – and three vacuum cleaners, a floor polisher and four rifles.
And for everyone who is back to work tomorrow enjoy Leroy Anderson’s The Typewriter:
Happy New Year Folks!
