Please join me in a little fun activity by sharing your thoughts through music, as a means to connect with, inspire and support each other in these difficult times.
My own experience is that the withdrawal of normal human contact – and I am a very ‘huggy’ sort – has left me feeling like I am stranded (albeit with a lovely husband) on a desert island. I propose that we share our 6 Lockdown Island Discs, a book, and a special treat with each other.
Music and theatre have always played a huge part in my life, playing, directing, writing, listening and especially dancing, so here’s my island CD list – for your ears only!
- Sibelius Violin Concerto in D minor, played by Kyung Wha Chung
- Elgar Cello Concerto, played by Alisa Weilerstein
- Dire Straits – Sultans of Swing
- Gloria Estefan – Alma Caribena
- Fleetwood Mac – Rumours
- Carole King – Tapestry
Book: Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas (if possible on audio CD with the original cast incl. Richard Burton)
Treat: Salted caramel ice cream
Please share your list in return.
