Catapulting into Classical

A headlong leap into music, history, and composing

A Year of Catapulting


BirthdayCakeIt’s the blog’s first anniversary, or birthday, or blogiversary! Yay!

Can you believe we’ve been on this journey together for a year?  Wow! And what a great year it has been.  I hope it has been as fun for you to read as it has been for me to write.

And I feel as though I’ve only just begun to find all the great music that’s out there.  So you can expect much more to come.  I’ll continue to bring you music that you might not have heard, insights into music’s past, concerts, books, resources…all that I can find to make classical music fun, fascinating, and as easy to access as possible.  Not to mention the occasional silly artwork and, of course, Haiku Wednesday!

I’d like to thank my family and friends for their support and encouragement from the very beginning.

I’d like to thank my commenters for their insightful and delightful contributions.  The blog is richer because of you.

And I’d like to thank all the readers, those who have been here from the beginning, and those who have just found the blog (welcome!).  I hope to continue to brighten your day, and bring you the best music and stories I can find.

Speaking of great music, I’d like to leave you today with music that has always sounded celebratory to me: Bach’s Sinfonia to Cantata No. 29.

Thank you for reading, and I’ll see you tomorrow with a new Haiku Wednesday!

  1. One year of blogging about music, regularly and informatively, always entertaining and fresh. A real accomplishment. Congratulations, and thanks for all the great links and youtube examples.

  2. Many thanks for return to something I heard last in the late 60s, and misplaced, in my memory, BWV 29.

  3. In a comment on the Bach BWV 29 cantata: “The sinfonia is a rearrangement of the prelude from the third violin partita.” Reminder, relisten to the partitas and sonatas for solo violin.

  4. Thanks for a great blog. I just had my blog’s first anniversary some days ago, and therefore know well how hard it sometimes can be to keep things up all the time. However, it is also very gratifying. Keep going!
