Easter 2020 – Witches & Wizards

image276

Into the woods…there’s a hut with chicken legs. It’s the home of the Russian witch Baba Yaga! Take a left and the castle of evil queen Grimhilde will be in sight. You may know her as the old witch who hands a poisoned apple to Snow White.  Now prick your ears and you will hear the cackle of Elfaba, aka the Wicked Witch of the West! Or maybe it’s the slithering sound of snakes and Voldemort’s incantations in his quest to defeat Harry Potter?

Welcome to our spooky Easter edition! Where threatening and ominous music will meet majestic and loving tunes…

Baba Yaga

This is the tune #9 in Russian composer Mussorgsky’s suite “Pictures at an exhibition”, mostly famous for 2 other entries – “Promenade” and the “Great gate of Kiev”.

Someday my prince will come

Composed by Churchill. Not Winston, Frank that is.
