    There are others – also so charming! (Hall of the Mountain King)
    Sheer delight!

  • Thank you! This is brilliant. ❤️

  • Great way to start my rainy Sunday. Thank you

  • Thank you for your daily posts about knitting. They make me forget for a little while the troubling times we’re going through.

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you! What delightful animations! Our sons loved this game when they were younger. It’s so much fun to see it again – and with music! Ann, you given us a gift.

  • These visualisations are great for making you pay attention to what the music is doing. I thoroughly enjoyed the wit of the few that I saw. So far my favorite is Hungarian Rhapsody number 2 by Matthew Buckley.

  • THIS. so much FUN.

  • WOW!! Thank you so much for this.

  • Yes to Mountain King, but my favorite is Bohemian Rhapsody | SYNCED (by Arglin) wow!

  • That is beyond cool!

  • Way cool! And so much fun!

  • Thank you, the Line Rider is such a blast! And thank you for the link to the Barenboim concert. I had forgotten how much I love watching a good orchestra and conductor perform! It totally distracted me from all the weeping I’ve been doing thanks to the news.

  • That video was the most fascinating one I have seen! Thank you for posting. Also, I want to thank you for your daily posts during this unique time in our country and world. I look forward to reading them each day and they are always interesting and fun. I have been to one of your day workshops and was registered for the one in May (looking forward to a reschedule one day) and dearly love to be able to picture your shop with all of its lovely yarn, accessories, and smiling faces. Just wanted all of you at MDK to know how much these posts mean to me.

  • I loved this. Made my day. Thanks so much for sharing

  • Thank you for the fun and beautiful links in this letter. Listening to and watching both the fun Line Riders and then the amazing conducting without a score gave me just the soul food I needed tonight. Thanks again, and hoping you have a good week.

  • Brilliant! Thank you

  • This was so much fun! Of course I shared it with friends, who were amazed to hear that I found the link on a knitting website…..except for my knitting friends, who just nodded knowingly. I so count on MDK for helping me stay optimistic these days.

  • well, I fell down a rabbit hole watching these, thank you!

  • That was good…….Margaret

  • These are awesome – thanks so much! And I have to say, I really enjoy John Eliot Gardiner & the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique’s version of all of Beethoven’s 9 symphonies, for those looking for something different…played on period pieces, really nice!

  • It made me smile and take a deep breath!

  • Good for the senses.
