Song of the Day #1971

Song of the Day: Sicilienne, Op. 78, composed by Gabriel Faure, was written originally as an orchestral piece in 1893, before going through several iterations culminating as part of a suite for full orchestra.

Starting on January 1, 2023, I will begin a month-long tribute to the music of the “Breaking Bad” franchise on the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the debut of “Breaking Bad“, which premiered on January 20, 2008.
