Today while I was browsing at one of the Gramaphone stores in Singapore looking for any new music or artiste, I came by the name Filippa Giordano. I used to own a CD of hers quite a while back and since I moved out of this town, most of my stuff have been in storage at a local warehouse. I don't remember what Filippa's music was all about as it was at a time when I simply grab CDs from music stores without much of a thought and if they are not extra special, I just chuck them aside. I know, I ought to be shot! ;p
Anyway, I didn't want to buy anymore CDs unless I'm sure I'd love the songs. So, I told myself to come home and check on Youtube.com before I make the decision for the new acquisition. Here are a few of her treasures I found.
Imagine my surprise! I didn't realise she's a crossover musician. And, she had performed the Ave Maria for the Pope! Wow, that's even better than performing for the Queen of England! Anyway, it doesn't matter what kind of musician she is or if she's hot. What matters to me is she produces good music!
Filippa has a wide range of musical repertoire. It is such a delight to click on one of her many videos on Youtube and to be entertained while I'm writing this review. Music is a very personal experience which each of us is preconditioned to like or hate. In any case, Filippa is foreign to many but I'm sure you like me will learn to love her music. In the next video, she brings the idea of fun to her music.
It just makes my day to rediscover something that's always been there but had been overlooked! Yes, one will have to dig deeper these days to find out the treasures we used to own but have totally forgotten about! That's one of the best thing being on Lunch.com. It makes me take stocks of many things in life! :-)
