A few weeks ago my friend Larry mentioned a concert he and Vin went to the in the courtyard of San Ivo alla Spienza that was part of a series given by the International Chamber Ensemble. It was an evening of two suites of music - Frank Sinatra Orchestra Suite and The Beatles Orchestra Suite. Both were scored for string orchestra by conductor Francesco Carotenuto and featured solo violinist Giuliano Bisceglia. As the Ensemble broke into the first strains of Night and Day I turned to Laurent and whispered: Montovani!
You may have to turn the sound up for this one.
What's that thing, you ask. Well young uns that there is a gramophone and the thing what's a spinning on it is a 45 rpm vinyl record. You can see them in museums or in my storage locker!
Mille grazie to Laurence1957 for the trip down memory lane.
