The PSF (formerly Smiley) poster known as halblaineisgood posted this slab of baroque 20th-century-style
today. I know such romanticized renditions are not everybody's cup of tea but this approach suits me fine.
Baroque Music  Cool

It's great to see my old thread reborn here, John! I was very indecisive about making it again as I've kind of fell out of love with baroque music. However, that piece you posted is splendid---so I am glad.

The soprano I used to coach is back from a period of ill health and raring to go! We're now working on Herbert Howells' stunning Requiem and this Stabat Mater by Domenico Scarlatti:

The music is Baroque (Handel) but the performance is on modern instruments. Joshilyn Hoisington will be better known to BB fans and scholars as aeijtzsche ("h"), a most remarkable person recently seen posting in this fascinating Smiley topic (http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,26208.msg642860.html#msg642860 ).

That's brilliant with modern instruments! Adds a whole new dimension to an old style of music.

I had a longish look round but couldn't find it. I'll resume looking another time. It can't be a very old painting as the ships have funnels (don't they?). H'mm. To be continued (I love a challenge). Wink  

Wonderfully peaceful music, as it happens!

Look forward to your findings. I also agree on the peaceful side regarding the music. Very Happy

Nothing as yet. The form of that crenelated tower with turret on the left resembles that of the White Tower of Thessaloniki, but that's a stand-alone tower. H'mm. I'll keep looking from time to time.

Ha! A third bout of searching finally yielded results--but those results are a bit weird, to say the least. Compare the two pictures. The top one is definitely of the same view as in the bottom one but in mirror image (with some subtle differences). But which one is correct? See here  and the wiki link for more about the "Rumelian castle". As for the artist's identity, I'll leave that to someone else!

Well done! I knew you would find the results. Regarding which one is correct who knows? Many famous paintings were copied down the years from the original to suit rich buyers at the time (I remembering reading that once). Or the original artist could of painted many versions of the castle, with of course slight changes, or had many different versions before agreeing on the final piece (which were don't know which one is, lol!)...

I'll bump this, as aeijtzsche has now posted a welter of Handel overtures at Soundcloud, multi-tracked by her "using electric mandolins and other things". What an achievement! I may become a Handel freak yet.  Wink  

According to her Bandcamp blurb, after studying classical guitar, jazz guitar, and composition at a college, she's still not that good at music. Talk about modest!
