It’s Friday, it has been a long week, so I think that something melodic and uplifting is in order today.
The final movement of Dvořák’s Symphony no. 8, performed here by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra directed by Zubin Mehta.
My favourite performance of this piece was at a London Symphony Orchestra concert conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas several years ago, and of course the LSO’s famous brass section played the blazing fanfare sections exceedingly well.
Wishing all my readers a good weekend, whatever your plans may be.
