I am trying something new on my Facebook feed: a classical music ( or music-related) video from Vimeo or YouTube each day shortly after 7pmEST. I will be doing this through at least the end of May. Enjoy!

Music videos I like.
Video of the Day — Boulez Conducts Janácek
The finale from Janácek’s Sinfonietta with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, performed at Royal Albert Hall during the 2008 Proms.
Video of the Day — Baroque.me
Alexander Chen’s “baroque.me”, an uncannily cool realization of the Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite in G Major, BWV1007 (which may, in fact, have been composed by Anna Magdalena Bach).
Check it out at Vimeo
You can see a Flash implementation of the above video at baroque.me.
Video of the Day — Traces to Nowhere
The opening segment of Eric Schulz’s brilliant and deeply moving documentary about conductor Carlos Kleiber.
Video of the Day — Anna Shkolnikova: Perpetuum Mobile
A recent, retro-Soviet-style string piece reminiscent of Shostakovich and Khachaturian (and Bernard Herrmann?) — enjoy!
