Sounds of winter: day 11

Winter, from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, performed by Federico Agostini against a backdrop of the Venice Carnival. Carnival is, of course, later, in February, but I’ve been to it and Venice in winter is very memorable, with fog over the canals and bridges, and masked revellers appearing around corners. I love the whole Four Seasons piece and had to have this movement in my choice of winter music. I actually like Kennedy’s recording best but this is good and I wanted the Venetian background.

The picture is by roxicons. All their pictures (I have used a few)  and others from magic_art and nomnom_icons are taken from icon comms on social media and I have enlarged them as header pics. Roxicons did a great online tutorial about icon making and since then I have virtually abandoned the comms!
