First on this Monday is "The Scorpio Races", composed by Maggie Stiefvater (also the author of the novel of the same name). Not only it is absolutely-flipping-perfect for the book - which I love love love - but it's a rollicking instrumental piece with wonderful Irish/Celtic influences. I feel like it could make really great writing music for my author friends out there, so give it a try!
If you like: horse racing, sea spray, salt on your tongue, or just good music - please do listen.
Apparently, some people are good at everything. *sigh*
I don't know this violinist or this piece very well, but "Czardas" is an exhilarating musical adventure.
So, instrumentals for this (admittedly somewhat dreary) Monday!
