For your Sunday listening, we have chosen Wendell’s “Red Blossoms in Vase” (acrylic on paper, 11 x 7, 2017 wendellmyers.com ) in combination with this very nostalgic Chopin Mazurka in C Major, Op. 67 No. 3. ( pamelahowland.com ). Please enjoy this little offering of a moment in time.
Sending you all the best,
Pam and Wendell
Please enjoy our new combination of Pamela playing Chopin’s Mazurka in F Major, Op. 68 No. 3 with Wendell’s great autumn painting, “October Treeline #2” (acrylic on canvas, 16 x 40, 2019, wendellmyers.com). pamelahowland.com Wishing you a warm week! Pam and Wendell
Today,’s MOMENT features Pam playing Claude Debussy’s 1908 take on ragtime (from the Children’s Corner Suite, last movement, “Golliwog’s Cakewalk” pamelahowland.com) with Wendell’s “Trees in Purple and Green” (acrylic on Paper, mounted on panel, 10 x 10, 2019 wendellmyers.com)
Shadow & Light – Today’s Moment is a combination of both. Pam’s arrangement (pamelaowland.com) is a medley of two George Harrison songs with very different messages and moods – “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and “Here Comes the Sun.” Wendell’s painting “Autumn Trees, Sunny Day” (acrylic on paper 12 x 12, 2019 wendellmyers.com) also reflects this duality.
Enjoy these contrasting autumn moods.
Pam and Wendell
Today we combine Wendell’s painting “Trees Along the Warta” –inspired by our walks along the river during our 2017-18 year in Poland- (8 x 10″ acrylic on paper, 2019, wendellmyers.com ) with Pam’s arrangement of the Beatles’ “The long and Winding Road.” (pamelahowland.com).
For the first Sunday in October, we go back to Chopin with Pam playing his Mazurka in A Minor, Op. 68 No. 2, (pamelahowland.com) in fusion with Wendell’s “Red Sky Over Blue Hills,” 6 x 14, acrylic on panel 2014, wendellmyers.com.
Dear Friends, We are here in beautiful Portugal today, ahead of Pam’s work at the University of Lisbon this coming week. Pam will be presenting a seminar on “Music and the Movies” on October 1, and a performance of her CHOPIN MEETS THE BEATLES program on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 ( to see posters, read this on her website Blog at http://www.pamelahowland.com/news ). We are honored to be here to engage with these wonderful people. For this week’s MOMENT – “Achat Sha’alti” (One thing I ask) is the 2nd movement from composer Paul Schoenfield’s Six Improvisation on Hassidic Melodies. Pam met the composer in 1985 when she had received a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. Subsequently, Pam made the world premier recording of this wonderful piano work (pamelahowland.com). Today we combine this with my “Yellow Sky Over Distant Dark” (acrylic on panel 4″ X 8″ 2014 wendellmyers.com) We wish you a wonderful new week, Pam and Wendell
Pam’s arrangement (pamelahowland.com)of the Beatles’ beautiful song, “She’s Leaving Home,” is combined with Wendell’s blue painting called “Blue Trees in Moonlight” (acrylic on panel, 10 x 10, 2014 wendellmyers.com )
Today’s MOMENT is a combination of Pam’s arrangement of The Beatles’ “For No One” (from the Revolver album) with a painting of Wendell’s, “Winter Thicket” (acrylic on canvas 30 x 30, 2012). This sad, pensive piece of music ends on the dominant chord (V), leaving the listener up in the air – a fitting representation of the sentiment of the loss and unresolved love expressed in the song. pamelahowland.comwendellmyers.com
