Scott Gorham and John Sykes?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

well last night ....


Karina Canellakis made history, as the first woman to conduct the First Night of the BBC Proms.   Her opening night kicked off with a complex, layered new work by Canadian composer Zosha Di Castri.

Long Is the Journey - Short Is the Memory was commissioned to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, and explored everything from the dark, brooding exploration of space to man's first weightless steps on the lunar surface.

Di Castri managed to convey the eerie loneliness of that first moonwalk in a section where the orchestra rubbed together paper bags, blew compressed air into milk bottles, and scraped tuning keys across harp strings, while a lone oboe represented the awestruck wonder of astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong.

The chorus, meanwhile, sang an evocative text by Chinese-British author Xiaolu Guo: "We stepped out and bounced, skipped, swang wide, set the flag on the silent lunar surface."

Researching the piece left a major impression on the composer, who had never before considered the monumental human effort behind the Moon landings.

sure to look out for the recording if that interested but i just switched on the radio, twiddled knobs and what ? i said ....

sounded interesting !!!!!


so i had to check the www.bbc.co.uk
