February 26 - The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful

A drive-by picture on the freeway, but, judging from the folliage, Spring has come to Lagoon Valley Park and environs.

It's a month's aniversary since starting the blogspot blogs (now including markalburgerworks.blogspot.com, markalburgerevents.blogspot.com, markalburgermusichistory.blogspot.com, and 21st-centurymusic.blogspot.com), and a month and a day since blogging in general, over at myspace.com/markalburger, so what better way to celebrate than another day of teaching: here are Nick M and Rob, back from sabbatical (as a prelude, we're watching a brief excerpt from Amadeus -- the music dictation bit -- is it funny or serious?)...

and let's not forget Bernie (taken before class, so he can't be faulted for not having his eye on a movie).

Evening class is mid-Romantic, from Frederic Chopin

to Pyotr Tchaikovsky.

Home late, with just enough time to prepare for publication rehearsal 53 of Act V, Scene 1 Mice and Men ("I done another bad thing"). Don't we all.
