Les Oiseaux Formidables
Nick Lane has written this wonderful book about ten iconic developments that occurred as life evolved on our planet of flux. P.Z. Myers has a review here.
I'm also working on Bach's Partita in A Minor for solo flute, transcribed by guitarist Denis Azabagic.
It's thinly textured, which seems to make it easy on the fingers compared to the thorny fugues found in Bach's solo lute and violin works. But therein lies the musical difficulty.
