MAGPIE/ Prompt #48

                                                      photo/ willow/ Magpie tales


A BIT of K 165

The Mezzo's voice
fills the recitative
and beckons us to plunge
into Mozart's
Little Concerto.

Exultate!
Jubilate!

A motet,
now sung by sopranos,
was composed
for the illustrious
Rauzini,

The extravagant
Castrato.

Delightful, Lyn!

Lyn said...

Hi Boom Boom...
Thanks for the visit, and the comment!!

Friko said...

Is that really what it is? Koechelverzeichnis no. 165.
Even the professional musicians in this house couldn't tell.

Chapeau!

I take it that is an expression used in your circles? No offence, the asking is probably stupid.

Friko said...

I wish you'd follow me because I like your blog enough to want to follow you. But i have this problem with reciprocity. Can't jump over my shadow.

Even so, I really will have to come and visit more often. There are some real gems here.

Lyn said...

Hi Friko-
It is the #165..
And I really don't know anything about my circle..I'm puzzled!!What is chapeau? No offence taken, but ..what???

Now...You jump first, I'll follow...haha..trust me!! Thank you...

Jingle said...

love it,

I am a fan of Mozart and Bach and more...

your words are musical, empowering, and employable...

Lyn said...

Hi Jingle-
Thank you...endless love for Mozart and Bach!!

Windsmoke. said...

Very enjoyable indeed but give me Ludwig Van Beethoven anyday.

Sioux Roslawski said...

Your musical knowledge certainly exceeds mine! Thanks for sharing your Magpie.

Andreas said...

I love poems that, on one level, are just giving out information, all matter of fact, and leave the rest to the reader. It's intelligent on your part, to treat the reader like he's smart (whether he actually is, is beside the point).
The bit about Rauzzini is exquisite.

Lyn said...

Hi Windsmoke-
Thanks for your point of view...a food fight between Beethoven and Mozart?..bring it on!!

Lyn said...

Hi Sioux-
Love sharing..thanks..and I do love trivia!!

Lyn said...

Hi Andreas-
So kind with your comments..always looking to be understood!
Yes, those castrati..what a resume'...!!

Derrick said...

BBC radio 3 has just spent the first 12 days of January playing every note Mozart wrote! So many wonderful works from one man.

Helen said...

Extravagant castrato .... Rauzzini fit the image to perfection!!!!

Lyn said...

Hi Derrick-
Not too much for me! If not Mozart, who?? Well, Bach, and.....Thanks for dropping by!!

Lyn said...

Hi Helen-
Sort of like that fellow! Love the background of history...thanks for your comment.

Deedee said...

Music and words, as intoxicating as wine. What grace, warmth and beauty they add to our world.

Lyn said...

Hi Deedee-
What a gracious statement..I certainly agree with insight!

Marilyn said...

An excellent write. I must admit that I am don't know very much about classical music so I had to do some internet research and have just listen to #165 and sorted out the references you have written into this piece. I am impressed.
I also enjoyed listening to #165.

Lyn said...

Hi Marilyn-
I'm really impressed at the amount of work you did! I too love researching, and it's so much easier now..Thanks!

Reflections said...

Delight dance across the pages of time, touching upon the crescendos of music itself.

Lyn said...

Hi Reflections-
I like the way you expressed this..thank you

joanny said...

Lyn

Superb -- or rather Bravo!Your words always charm and delight. love the classics - one of my favorite is "Ode to Joy" did a piece on Beethoven some months back. What was the poem you were referring to I would love to read it? I did manage to do a magpie this week, music intrigues me.

Lyn said...

Hi joanny-
It's a pleasure reading your kind words..I was refering to a poem, K-165/Proof, in a book I published a couple of years ago..."Two Ghosts"!!!!

Nanka said...

You must be good in this art or truly musically inclined!! I'm quite deaf where music is concerned :D but I do see a fine poem!!

Lyn said...

Hi Nanka-
I think when I love something I really pursue it..no special musical talent..thanks for your comment!

girldaydreaming said...

your words do move and flow, quick and easy in the loveliest way!

Lyn said...

Hi girldaydreaming-
Thank you for the lovely compliment...

Jinksy said...

I think, when Friko said 'Chapeau' it was probably her way of taking her hat off to you, in recognition of your poem!

Lyn said...

Hi Jinksy-
Thank you so much..I received an email explaining the idiomatic use of chapeau! Now I know...

Margie said...

Wonderful writing!
Love this!

Margie :)
