Midweek Open Thread: Pretty Music Edition


Well, we’ve all chewed over the Emma trailer pretty thoroughly by now, so it’s time to move on to other things. If you can’t get enough, the thread about the trailer at Oh No They Didn’t is a bit of fun.

Speaking of trailers, we heard from Philip Sheppard, the composer of the lovely, haunting piano piece that accompanied ITV’s trailer for the Jane Austen Season. He has posted a couple of new pieces of music on his blog that he wanted to share with AustenBlog readers. close your eyes is a piece for solo cello, prepared piano and strings. Not Coming Back is a piece for piano and cello orchestra. Enjoy!

This is an open thread, so let us know what’s going on in your part of Janeiteville.
