AHN't they wonderful?

This post is to introduce a wonderful trio (piano, violin & cello), who are playing a delightful (!) piece. It is a part of the TED: series of presentations on the Web. The subtitle of their works are always "Ideas Worth Sharing". This one definitely IS worth that and more. TEDWomen is the particular occasion. Read about the Ahn sisters when you follow THIS LINK to the two pieces: They start with the bright and poppy "Skylife," by David Balakrishnan, then play a gorgeous, slinky version of "Oblivion," by Astor Piazzolla.

As always, comments welcomed.

'Nobody Knows' the videos I've seen...

There are many styles of music video on display. I enjoyed the inventiveness of the first ones that went beyond simply showing the band or singer standing on a stage and giving you the music you came there for. The one for 'Her Morning Elegance' really grabbed my attention and held it for the whole strange trip it takes you on for the lady's dreams and the singer's song. I recommend it to your viewing...and listening.

Thanks to Dagmar Kusa for pointing it out.
