Violin and New Music ~

Be sure to click and see all the details. I've been in a movie mood this week.
Today I watched 'Ladies in Lavender'.
Set in picturesque coastal Cornwall, in a tight-knit fishing village in the 1930s, Ladies in Lavender stars Judi Dench and Maggie Smith play the leading roles of sisters Ursula (Dench) and Janet Widdington (Smith). Andrea is played by Daniel Bruhl (Good Bye Lenin!). A gifted young Polish violinist from Krakow, Andrea is bound for America when he is swept overboard by a storm. When the Widdington sisters discover the handsome stranger on the beach below their house, they nurse him back to health. However, the presence of the musically talented young man disrupts the peaceful lives of Ursula and Janet and the community in which they live.
Much of the soundtrack music is played by violinist Joshua Bell.
His violin music is beautiful and I added a new list to my music player in my sidebar.
The movie you can rent from Netflix. Beautiful movie, beautiful soundtrack!


  1. The more I read your posts, the more I realize we have a lot in common. I love that movie! And I love Joshua Bells performance of the theme song. This Christmas we made a CD of favorite music to give to people in my family, and that song was on my CD.
