A Little Cheer

And still it rains.
In my continual efforts to lift my spirits amid the encircling gloom, I just now came across this film of the accordionist Djordje Gajic playing a jolly Scarlatti sonata. Scarlatti's music, with its folk-dance coloration, seems to lend itself remarkably well to the accordion.
There's a good deal of accordion Scarlatti on YouTube, and still more Bach, with the Toccata and Fugue apparently a great favourite. There's even an accordion version of the great D minor Chaconne... For now, though, I pass on this bit of Scarlatti in the hope that it might cheer you too.
