Love and Libraries

In addition to books, the Rochester/Monroe County Public Library has plenty of recordings (and movies) to borrow. Music librarian Judy Schewe´╗┐ blog called Biblipod that features listening suggestions from their collection.
Schewe invited me to jump in with classical suggestions when I get the chance, and I started out with a playlist for Valentine's Day. Check it out: Caught in a Bad Romance: Classical Music for Doomed Lovers
I hope you enjoy it! I had fun putting together the list, even though I'm not really that negative about romance. But if the anti-Valentine focus is too cynical for you, check out this list of five classical music love letters from NPR Classical's Deceptive Cadence blog: Measures of Affection: Five Musical Love Letters.
