RIP, Franco Aragosta/FreeThinke

(For politics, please scroll down) 

Franco Aragosta (aka FreeThinke), one of the friends of this blog as well as my personal friend since 2012, passed away suddenly very early on the morning of October 7.  He would have turned 80 years old on his next birthday, in April.

This talented man was an accomplished pianist, an astute music critic, and a writer of poetry (both serious and light-hearted).  In fact, for years, he composed acrostic sonnets as a daily mind-sharpening exercise.  A Renaisssance Man in several ways!
I will miss him.

FreeThinke/Franco was quite fond of English composers and their works, particularly their lesser-known compositions.  Consequently, I am posting “In Moonlight,” composed by English composer Sir Edward Elgar (1857-1934), in honor of Franco/FreeThinke:

YouTube blurb:
Extracted by Elgar from his concert overture “In the South (Alassio)”, “In Moonlight (Canto popolare)” is played here by the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Paul Goodwin. The paintings are by the English artist John Atkinson Grimshaw.
