TEXAS: THE LONE STAR STATE!

It’s Friday, and I’m taking care of the last minute details before my computer is placed on a long, long trailer, along with 73 boxes, and very little furniture on Saturday, December 28th, for the journey to Texas. After living in Los Angeles for 27 years, I’m looking forward to returning to my home state, and starting a new life. I’m already missing California’s great weather.

May all of your wishes come true this holiday season, and Happy New Year!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! MAESTRO ENNIO MORRICONE

 

The Italian composer, orchestrator, conductor and former trumpet player, was born under the intensely penetrating Sun sign of Scorpio, on November 10, 1928, in Rome, Italy. He has written a wide range of composition genres, and contemporary classical works for more than five hundred films and television series, and his music has been used in over sixty award-winning films.

Maestro Morricone is a wizard of symbolic and lyrical mastery, and one of the world’s most versatile, prolific and influential motion picture composers of all time.

SAMUEL BARBER: A MELANCHOLIC COMPOSER

Samuel Osmond Barber II was born on March 9, 1910, in West Chester, Pennsylvania.  He became profoundly interested in music at an early age, and at ages 6 and 7, composed his first work, Sadness, a 23 measure solo piano piece in C minor.

Composers Johann Sebastian Bach and Johannes Brahms were the inspiration for his music.

Adagio for Strings is among his most popular compositions, and widely considered a masterpiece of modern classical music.  It was one of President John F. Kennedy’s favorite pieces of music, and has been played during several funerals of the rich and famous, as well as films, and televisions shows.

Barber died of cancer in 1981, in New York City at the age of 70.  He was interred in Oaklands Cemetery in his hometown.
