DIABETES IS HELPED BY TWENTIETH CENTURY VIOLIN MUSIC

I listened to Igor Stravinsky’s concerto en re and Witold Lutoslawski’s Partita and Chain 2 before lunch. Stravinsky was fine and easy. Lutoslawski I kind of glossed over. After lunch I got through Bartok,enjoyed Norbert Moret’s En reve, submerged with Berg, and got reamed by Rihm.
Lutoslawski always lowers my blood sugar. I think it is because his music is unfamiliar, dissonant, and requires a lot of attention as do the rest. The violin concerto by Bartok and Berg were intriguing and held me spellbound.
Wolfgang Rihm I thought extreme in his high registers for the violin. My sugar three hours after eating was 122. This is good for me.
So, I ordered Norbert Moret’s Cello Concerto by a favorite named Rostropovich along with Hymne de Silence. I was going to order Wolfgang Rihm’s Sring Quartets 1,8 & 5, but the review made it sound like a lot of noise. But this is good for me, so I ordered. I got a little Stravinsky in Flute for Relaxation. Maybe the unfamiliar is better when the familiar has too many memories and auditorial reactions. I may revisit more Twentieth Century musicians.
