Richard Wagner meets Hans Anderson Brendekilde.

I’m linking here to a video posted by Youtube user Richard Brittain — it’s a nice rendition of the overture of Richard Wagner’s “Tannhauser,” paired with Hans Anderson’s Brendekilde’s circa-1880 painting, “A Woodland Landscape.”

The music and the painting are perfect for each other.  Wagner always evokes a mood; I’ve enjoyed it as “writing music” since I was a kid.  And that painting can be immersive — especially when you maximize it on your computer screen.

If you’re anything like me, it’ll make you want to find out where that path down there leads.
