Texas Ranger baseball player Josh Hamilton has battled the demons of drug and alcohol addiction. So when his team won their playoff series in 2010, Hamilton was concerned about the postgame celebration. He admitted that its not good for a recovering alcoholic to be in the midst of a rainstorm of champagne. But something beautiful happened. Instead of champagne, his teammates stocked the locker room with ginger ale so that Hamilton could be included in the celebration. What a great picture of community and putting others needs above your own.
This is what Paul meant when he commanded the Philippians to count others as more significant than themselves (2:3-4). Being united to Christ made the Philippian believers members of the same family and gave them a special bond. Thus their attitude toward one another was to be expressed in practical ways: unity in love, sacrificial service, and discovering how to help others even when they didnt realize they needed help. The motivation for this type of normal Christian behavior is the example of Jesus Christ.
Like Hamiltons teammates, lets carry each others burdens. When we selflessly love our neighbors, we are expressing our love for God.
Read: Philippians 2:1-11
Instead, Chopin declared that Bach was his favorite composer. Its unlikely that Fred heard the 1829 revival of the St. Matthew Passion that Mendelssohn staged in Leipzig, which started the great Bach revival that continues today. Bachs music was unknown to the general public, but professional musicians held his keyboard and organ works in high esteem. Fred probably was familiar with his inventions and his collection of preludes and fugues. What is funny is that there is very little of Bach in Chopins music.
The real influence was bel canto opera. The idea behind bel canto was that vocal technique and pyrotechnics were more important than plot and the actual quality of the music. This was why Rossinis operas had replaced Handels in the repertory, and composers like Donizetti and Bellini were kings of the opera house. What Chopin did was treat the piano as an opera singer. The wonderful ornamentation that Fred wrote for piano came straight out of the opera house.
Chopin had barely arrived in Vienna when word came of the November Uprising against Russia back in Poland. Freds friends in Vienna journeyed back to Poland to fight, but Fred was already suffering from the early stages of the tuberculosis that would eventually kill him.
At age 21, Chopins work for 1831 showed that he had reached a high level of professionalism. None of the works from this year went into the desk drawer. All were published. The first was a set of mazurkas. The first mazurka in B-flat is a piece that every child pianist is forced to tackle. Its still fun.
Gooood evening Drumbo & great to see you as always!
Did your garden get any rain yet? *Hugs*
Can I put in a request for some Nora Jones?

The second nocturne from this set is one of the best known piano pieces in the entire repertory, and every child pianist tries to master it.
The third nocturne is just plain gorgeous.
No rain. Corn is a lost cause for the mulch pile. I did can 4 quarts of tomatoes this morning and 4 pounds of butter. Next week I’ll focus on pears and chillies. Tonight’s juke is an Aerosmith Blitzkrieg as I have to stand an overnight watch at the church. We’re having FUNDAY event tomorrow with game tents, a dunking booth and a Noah’s Ark inflatable. It’s not wise to leave it unattended overnight so I’m standing the night watch beginning at midnight so hang on as I post like a madman.
Hope you & the family are well & have a great weekend. *Hugs*
Hope you find some tunes to enjoy!
Thank you! our son is getting married tomorrow so life is good!
