Re: videos and music and intention


a little bit wisecracky again, and I'm sorry for that, but for me it 
makes a difference in what you're stating in your message:

Are you referring to "La Primavera" (Spring) form "Le quattro Stagioni" 
(The Four Seasons) by Vivaldi, or rather "Le Sacre du Printemps" (The 
Rite of Spring) by Igor Stravinsky?

While Vivaldi's Four Seasons had been "educated muzak" for a long time 
in galleries and chic restaurants alike (before they got replaced by 
Jarret's Köln Concert), Stravinsky making the evening more pleasant 
would hint at a very appreciative crowd...
