This week's recommendations

From @freyman, we have a complete write up comparing the different performances of Duke Ellington: Caravan.

Here is one of many recordings from YouTube that he has compared.


Peter Sculthorpe is one of Australia's best known composers (right after Percy Grainger). He drew inspiration from the unique Australian landscapes and sounds of the bush. This piece, Kakadu, is a final landscape that was inspired by the huge Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory.

from @proxytech

Here’s a concerto by Scarlatti in g minor that I really enjoyed. It reminds me of Bach’s Brandenburg concertos. I always liked the sound of the baroque flute and, as a guitarist, enjoy seeing the lute included in the ensemble.
