The Tuesday Inspiration: With a little help from the Italians

I really thought I would fail with today??s theme as I was completely out of ideas and I have so little time to shoot on a Tuesday. However, as I walked back to my car at lunchtime I suddenly remembered Walter Bergmann??s Sonata for treble recorder. Towards the end of the Sonata the composer instructs the performers to play in the style of today??s theme in the usual language of classical music - Italian. Once again, this was taken with my Lensbaby, using a close up filters to allow me to get near enough to capture the necessary detail.

Thanks to Jacqueline (MrsSavidan [photoblog.com]) for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??Opportunity??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.

      I've never seen that particular instruction on a piece of music, but then, I played trombone. :)
      Excellent choice for the TI, Helen!

      Very nice!! I'm glad I learned to read music when I was much younger so I know what all of that means...but play it on a recorder? No! Bet it's beautiful when you do, though...

      I had similar difficulties but not your very clever solution although since here in Georgia I rented together with my apartment a piano and notes are available as well.
