Today is the Monday before Ascension Day, so it is the first of the 'minor Rogation Days', today, tomorrow, and Wednesday, the Vigil of the Ascension. At Saint-Eugène, they are celebrating the Rogation Mass Exaudivit de templo sancto with commemoration of Saint Antoninus... at 0830, I believe it was.
Ante Tertiam. Am listening now to Haydn lived in Eisenstadt by the Austrian Kurt Schwertsik, written for the concert recorded infra at Wigmore Hall. I thought I was listening to the live performance but evidently not, ha, since the video is already on YouTube. The violist is Timothy Ridout and the pianist Tom Poster. I had been of course entirely unfamiliar with Schwertsik. Brahms's Viola Sonata in F minor op 120 n 1 and Viola Sonata in E flat op 120 n 2, with the Schwertsik between them. The Haydn lived in Eisenstadt is in three movements, the names of which I didn't catch apart from the last, 'Unreconciled', the presenter said, whatever that is in German, a comment somehow on the French novelist Michel Houellebecq. Hmm. Which does remind me that I wanted to download his Interventions 2020 onto the Kindle.
