Weekend 364.1

I saw the NY Philharmonic play Fantasia on Friday Night at Lincoln Center (David Geffen Hall). It’s the 75th Anniversary of Fantasia and the program included selections from Fantasia (1940) and Fantasia 2000 (1999). It was a fantas(ia)tic evening, but they didn’t play my three favorite pieces:

Night On Bald Mountain (1940)
Ave Maria (1940)
Rhapsody in Blue (1999)

Here’s a roundup of Fantasia posts from the Limestone Archives from 2010 to 2016:

Epic Mickey
Now your ageless bell…
Weekend 198.0
Weekend 346.0 (Aloft from earth’s far boundaries)
Christmas Sabbatical
Weekend 360.0 (The Art of Sight and Sound)

My two favorite posts include this scan of Chernobog by Bill Tytla and Ave Maria converted from the original 1964 Fantasia LP.
