Okay, just one more track from the Vince Guaraldi Trio’s A Charlie Brown Christmas. It really is a great album… I highly recommend it.
Today is Classical Sunday, so I’ve chosen a piano piece from the album, one composed by Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770-1827).
It’s another lazy afternoon, after a fair bit of exercise. My sweety and I just got back from a 3.7 kilometre (2.25 mile) walk in the light snowfall, and I did a 45 km (28 mi) ride on the bike trainer this morning. It was a Zwift virtual group ride, which was a lot of fun. I was riding at the back of the bunch, sweeping (slowing down to help pull riders back into the virtual “draft” or slipstream of the pack if they fall off the rear of the group).
“Für Elise” is a short piece at only 1:05. It is one that almost everybody will recognize from either Linus playing it on the piano on Charles Schulz’s Peanuts animated TV shows or, simply, as one of Beethoven’s more famous solo piano works.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
