The rhythm of the rain seems to call for a certain kind of soundtrack. Subdued, contented, but not too sleepy.
Here is a playlist of instrumental music that I need to hear when the roof beats and the outside world begins its wintery meditation.
|Roger Kellaway Cello Quartet|
1) Upscale Jazz Cello
The whole album is an experience.
My favorite track: Morning Song
Mood lifting energy. Inspiring performances.
Bukkene Bruse:The Stone Chair
2) Deep Magic: Norwegian Hardanger Fiddle:
Numedalshalling (Halling From Numedal)
Link above takes you to recording online, link on left goes to Amazon)
Ear stretching harmonies, and a wonderful example of the voice used as an instrument, often heard in this genre.
3) Soothing Harp & Flute:
Month of January /When the Snow and Frost Are All Over
| Anna Holbling: |
Two Violins and One Guitar, Vol. 2
4) Classical Chamber Music
Handel: Sonata in C minor: III. Andante
A gently rhythmic major key theme, cadencing at the end to a minor key (to transition to the next movement), ending wonderfully unresolved.
5) Sublime Guitar:
Hypnotic & sensual.
Piano: So Much Music!!!
This may be the perfect sound for a good drizzly day.
6) Solo Romantic (classical genre, romantic period)
Here is a link to a live performance so beautiful, I want to live in this moment.
7) Solo Classical -- nearly any Mozart Piano Sonata. Here is an elegant performance.
Piano Sonata No.16 in C K.545 "Sonata facile" - 2. Andante
|Michael Allen Harrison: Matter of Time|
8) New Age Piano ensemble
