Classical Cuties (and a Barefooted Bluegrass Babe)

The above pictured and posted Patricia Janečková is just the start.

“This video is replete with gorgeous girls,” rightly noted a commenter on this seemingly solemn post — Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” Performed by the Brodsky Quartet.

“And is Francesca Boncompagnie [sic] not a sweet angel?” rightly asked a commenter on this post of sacred music — Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s Mass in D Major Performed by Francesca Boncompagni, Maria Chiara Gallo & Coro e Orchestra Ghislieri, Directed by Giulio Prandi.

Me? A recent favorite was the chorus girl who appears in the still of this video of sacred song — J. S. Bach’s Jesu, Meine Freude Sung by Netherlands Bach Society, Directed by Christoph Prégardien.

Years ago, another chorus girl won my Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben here — Johann Sebastian Bach’s Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben Performed by Christine Schäfer, Bernarda Fink, Ian Bostridge, Christopher Maltman, Arnold Schoenberg Choir & Concentus Musicus Wien, Directed by Nikolaus Harnoncourt.

And, if I’m honest, the hot harpist and sexy sackbuttist (betcha never heard that phrase before) make this one of my all time favorite posts — Heinrich Schütz’s Alleluja Lobet den Herren Performed by La Chapelle Rhénane, Directed by Benoît Haller.

Alas, I must also confess to ulterior motives in posting multiple videos on these pages featuring Magdalena Kožená, Miriam Feuersinger, Alice Sara Ott, and Yuja Wang.

Moving to our shores, “[S]he’s lookin’ pretty fine here,” rightly observed a commenter on the video posted here — Mandolin Orange Perform Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon”.

The commenter was, unsurprisingly, upbraided by another: “If that’s your best line then ‘lookin’ at a beautiful, talented musician (or any woman for that matter) is probably about as close as you’ll get,” he said. “Show some class.”

Another rightly countered, “[B]ut she is so very lovely. I can talk for hours about so many aspects of their music. Yet many things can be true at the same time. Anyone would be lucky to have another person look at them the way she does in this video.”

And another corrected, “Oh come on, take it easy there judgemental Johnny. He just expressed a simple, yet obvious observation. Saying that a woman looks pretty, when she is, is not a crime.” Not quite yet at least.
