I’m a little late with this week’s music but a few things I was doing for the PEI Symphony had me preoccupied. And speaking of the Symphony we have our final season concert coming up with violinist Marc Djokic playing the Sibelius Concerto for Violin under the direction of our wonderful maestro Mark Shapiro.
To celebrate Canada and our 150th birthday Djokic, with his sister Denise and several other musicians, has made a series of videos for NONCERTO called “Extreme Locations”. Amongst their locations are inside the structure of the Confederation Bridge that joins the rest of Canada to our Island, Cows Creamery (the best ice cream not just on the Island but anywhere!) and this one filmed at Green Gables National Park. The Djokic Duo plays Erwin Schulhoff‘s Zingaresca against some wonderful shots of the area around Cavendish on the North Shore.
The entire playlist is available here: Extreme Locations – NONCERTO. There are some interesting and unusual pieces and locations.
On this day in 1934: The “Surgeon’s Photograph”, the most famous photo allegedly showing the Loch Ness Monster, is published in the Daily Mail (in 1999, it is revealed to be a hoax).
