Lynn Sislo continues her weekly explorations of her CD collection, this time reporting on a disc of Tomaso Albinoni's music. Lynn compares Albinoni to Vivaldi, saying: "I can say with confidence that if you like Vivaldi you will like Albinoni." That's certainly true, in my experience; but since I can't abide Vivaldi -- I could live to my 90s and very happily never hear The Four Seasons again -- I don't much like Albinoni either.
Generally speaking, my musical tastes start with Mozart and move forward; Bach and Handel are the only Baroque masters I much enjoy. Baroque music is just too sane for me, but as to that, there are more things on heaven and earth than are dreamt of in my philosophy. Varying mileage and all that.
