|Summer Solstice - June 21, 2018 - good day sunshine!|
Also, how can a Tales classical music summer be considered hot without the song "Summertime" from the great early 20th century American composer George Gershwin. "Summertime" was one of the great aria's from Gershwin's beloved opera "Porgy and Bess." I think you will love this version featuring Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
Then please enjoy a piece by one of my favorite composers, the German early Romantic Era composer Felix Mendelssohn. Of course, I am talking about one of his famous pieces, "A Midsummer Night's Dream". His "Overture To A Midsummer Night's Dream" is very melodic and beautiful, a description that is common with all of Mendelssohn's pieces.
Then-a bonus special on the Tales-while maybe not a classical music piece, still one of the favs of the Tales! You will need to scroll down to find out what it is.
So, please turn up the volume and enjoy some hot music on this Tales classical music special honoring the beginning of Summer.
