I know people were wondering what had happened over the last few weeks to the emails/blog issues of The Beautiful Project, and missing them! As anyone who knows me personally knows, I was overwhelmed. Overwhelmed by work on my book, the corporation and a very special article I am writing. Some of you know which one I am talking about.
I am still overwhelmed.
But I just can’t stand it anymore, I must put out an issue of The Beautiful Project. Beauty demands our attention.
In time, I plan to do several issues to make up for the 4 weeks where there was no issue, to keep the number of weeks of the project equaling the number of issues released, as was planned, the once per week arrangement.
Also – this is Issue No. 30 of The Beautiful Project! 30 beautiful issues, woo hoo, celebration time!!!
So, coming back strong, here is truly one of the 5 most beautiful things ever created by a human being, referenced in Issue No. 8, The Flower Duet, Léo Delibes aria from the opera Lakmé (It’s set in India! It’s about love! – Moulin Rouge!, ha ha!) This is what is for me the most beautiful recording of it ever, Natalie Dessay, soprano, with Delphine Haidan.
And it’s in French!
When I first heard this piece of music on the British Airways commercial when I was little, I naturally assumed that it was the music one heard as one entered heaven.
To buy the Lakmé opera (you know I’ve got my copy! : )
And let me know exactly what you think of The Flower Duet!
And this is Classical Music Master Class No. 2 (as introduced in Issue No. 23).
All my best, with Tender, Loving Care,
Can you think of a reason for not sharing this? Neither could I.
