Title: Music I love
Post by: Sculpto on May 23, 2009, 02:48:37 PM
Simply links to youtube vids of great music..

I start this off with a new selection from an amazing Mexican group called Cafe Tacuba. 

I find the song mysterious, sensual and incredibly beautiful.  I am sure they will win another Latin Grammy for this one.

here is the translation...

You are what I want the most in this world, that's you (that's what you are),
my deepest thoughts you also are,
just tell me what to do, here you have me.

You're the first thing when I wake up, that's you (that's what you are),
the very thing that is needed in my life when you're not coming,
the only thing, the precious, which inhabits my mind today.

What more can I tell you, maybe I lied to you without a reason,
but what I regret today is that without you I'm dead,
so, you are what I want the most in this world, that's you (that's what you are).

You are the time that I share, that's you (that's what you are),
what people promise when they want each other,
my salvation, my hope and my faith.

I'm the one who wants to love you like no one else,
I'm the one who will give you support day by day, day by day,
the one who will give you his life, that's me.

Here I am by your side and I'm waiting here hoping till the end.
You haven't even imagined that I've been waiting for you
because you are what I love in this world, that's you (that's what you are),
what I think of in every minute, that's you (that's what you are),
what I care for the most in this world, that's you (that's what you are),

the incomparable Silvio Rodriguez.. and what I believe is the best love song ever written..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok_wnW9YBrE

If only the leaves wouldn't touch your body when they fall
So you couldn't turn them to glass.
If only the miracle of the rain falling over your body
Would cease to be.
If only the moon could rise without you.
If only the earth wouldn't kiss your steps.

If only there was an end to your constant stare
The exact word, the perfect smile.
If only something--a blinding light,
a shot of snow--
would suddenly wipe you out of my mind.
If only death at least would deliver me
From seeing you every moment, in every vision:
If only I couldn't sing about you too.

Ojalá que las hojas no te toquen el cuerpo cuando caigan
para que no las puedas convertir en cristal.
Ojalá que la lluvia deje de ser milagro que baja por tu cuerpo.
Ojalá que la luna pueda salir sin ti.
Ojalá que la tierra no te bese los pasos.

If only the leaves wouldn't touch your body when they
Ojalá se te acabé la mirada constante,
la palabra precisa, la sonrisa perfecta.
Ojalá pase algo que te borre de pronto:
una luz cegadora, un disparo de nieve.
Ojalá por lo menos que me lleve la muerte,
para no verte tanto, para no verte siempre
en todos los segundos, en todas las visiones:
ojalá que no pueda tocarte ni en canciones.

Ingles:

And you call that rock'n'roll :o :-\? Sorry, I find it VERY unimpressive, but you see my problem is that of déja entendu, I already heard dozens of pieces like that, and complexity may just be an escape route when one hasn't really much 'meat' to offer.

On the other hand classical music, with its centuries of existence and hundreds of composers who produced thousands of original pieces, still offers me surprises to this day ;).

Sandro your ears are biased!  The Incubus piece is probably truly categorized as alternative or post r and r but I think if you had a look at the score and the methods of layering you would be surprised at the depth of the connection to the classics.  

I would like to know where you heard dozens of pieces like that though.. in the amplified music genre they come off as pretty original to me and have a considerable number of emulators who aren't nearly as good.

Not surprising, and I don't like them for the same reason I don't like modern classical music, with its rhythmical microcells and all the brainy mumbo-jumbo that simply smells of CONTRIVED to me.

 you might like this one.. the man is classically trained in opera and supposedly has 9 or 12 ocatves.. but he rocks and is quite absurd at times.. very Zappa influenced.  Also, I think this live performance might have been in Italy..

YOU are absurd :D, NO human voice can span that range. Just to give you an idea, a piano covers about 7.5 octaves with its 88 keys. The Guinness Book of Records lists :

Women: Georgia Brown (Brazil), 8 octaves.
Men: Nicola Sedda (Italy),  8.5 octaves.

Lilac Negro

Where are you now? Who kisses your fingers?
Where did your little Chinese Lee leave?
It seems that you loved a Portuguese after,
Or maybe you left with Malayan...

I saw you so close for the last time.
A car whirled away you along the streets.
And I dream that in the brothels of San Francisco
a lilac Negro helps you with your coat.

and I was wrong about Beck.. he claims 17 octaves..

http://dic.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/296548

As noted above, claims of exceptionally wide vocal ranges are not uncommon among some singers. The biggest claim came from alternative-experimental vocalist Beck, who has made claim to a "seventeen-octave vocal range." [http://www.vh1.com/artists/news/1123487/20000828/elastica.jhtml] Charles Kellogg, who claimed to have a vocal range of 12.5 octaves, could accurately imitate birdcalls, which sometimes went up into the ultrasonic range. According to Kellogg his calls could go as high as 14,000 Hz (14 080Hz is A9). Some recordings of Kellogg's birdcalls still exist. However, Kellogg's claims are very hard to verify.

As I mentioned before, the accompaniment in terzine is a dead giveaway for the period of origin, also featuring another return to C&W:

And the pan flute reminded me of another ethnic instrument, the ancient Sardinian launeddas, the triple reed pipes (2 five-holed chanters of different lengths and 1 drone).

Alone I go with my sorrow
Alone goes my sentence
To run is my destiny
To escape the law
Lost in the heart of the great Babylon
They call me
clandestine
For not having any papers

To a city of the north
I went to work
I left my life
Between Ceuta and
Gibraltar
I’m a line in the sea
A ghost in the city
My life is forbidden
So says the authority

Alone I go with my sorrow
Alone goes my sentence
To run is my destiny
For having no papers
Lost
in the heart
Of the great Babylon
They call me clandestine
I’m the lawbreaker
Mano negra clandestine
Peruan clandestine
African clandestine
Marihuana illegal

Alone I go with my sorrow
Alone
goes my sentence
To run is my destiny
To escape the law
Lost in the heart of the great Babylon
They call me
clandestine
For not having any papers

Agreeable, but rather 'light' on the musical side, and I don't mean volume. You see, good music requires BOTH repetition and variation, if you only get one of the two, it becomes boring, at least to me: I cannot stand Rap, for instance, I find it excruciatingly monotonous :(.

But again, my point is that you are probably paying more attention to the lyrics - and their political message - than to the musical aspects as I do (melody, harmony, rhythm, tempo, etc. etc.)

By the way Cafe Tacuba is a resturant in Mexico City.  It has been in the same spot since 1912 and is a great place for a romantic dinner.  Poets, artists and musicians have been hanging out there for decades.  I have eaten there many times.  The food is excellent though a tiny bit traditional for my taste.

Abrázame y muérdeme
Llévate contigo mís heridas
aviéntame y déjame
Mientras yo contemplo tu partida
En espera de que vuelvas y tal vez vuelvas por mí

Hold me and bite me
Take my wounds with you
shove me and leave me
While I contemplate your departure
Waiting for you to come back and perhaps come back for me

Y ya te vas qué me dirás, dirás
Qué poco sabes tú decir

And you're leaving now; what will you say to me, say [to me]
You know so little to say

Despídete, ya no estarás
Al menos ten conmigo esa bondad
Te extrañaré no mentiré
Me duele que no estés y tú te vas

Say goodbye, you will no longer be here
Show me at least that much kindness
I will miss you; I won't lie
Your not being here hurts me and you're leaving

Amárrame y muérdeme
Llévate contigo mis heridas
Murmúrame y ládrame
Grita hasta que ya no escuche nada
Sólo ve cómo me quedo aquí esperando a que no estés
En espera de que vuelvas y tal vez vuelvas por mi
En espera de que vuelvas y tal vez vuelvas por mi

Tie me up and bite me
Take my wounds with you
Whisper into me and bark at me
Scream until I can no longer hear anything [else]
Just look at how I stay behind here waiting for you not to be here
Waiting for you to come back and perhaps come back for me
Waiting for you to come back and perhaps come back for me

CONTAMINATIONS

Mixing aspects of classical music with jazz may produce some interesting results. Let's consider rhythm:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V9VSxn2F9M&feature=related[/youtube]

Quote
"Take Five" is a classic jazz piece first recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet and released on its 1959 album Time Out. It became the first million-selling jazz single on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1961, at a time when rock music was in fashion.
“Take Five” became Brubeck’s best known and signature tune, although it was composed by Paul Desmond, the group's saxophonist. It became famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody and use of an unusual five beat quintuple time, from which its name is derived. [1]The track also features Eugene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Take_Five

The rhythm is in 5/8, but this wasn't Brubeck's only experiment with unusual rhythm patterns:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kc34Uj8wlmE&feature=related[/youtube]

9/8, probably inspired by the 3rd movement (Rondo alla Turca) of Mozart's Piano sonata no. 11  in A major KV 881, in 6/8:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGDHe14m8ew[/youtube]

And, in 7/8, but less inspiring:

I must be getting absent-minded (advancing age ::)?): I forgot to mention that many of the musics I love - a lot by Cole Porter - are listed on my site at:

www.floriani.it/ballroom-eng.htm

They are MIDI orchestrations that I made, and can be played by clicking on their Time (duration) - the sound quality will depend heavily on the sound card/circuit on your machine, responsible for creating the 'synthetic' instruments that I used ;).

Lou Bega's You Wanna Be Americano is the reprise of Tu vuo' fa' l'americano, a song written and performed by Renato Carosone, a very popular Neapolitan musician of the 1950s:

I don't think most of Big Luciano's ventures into the pop/blues world were wise choices, he needed something more appropriate to his operatic voice, like:

Repetition & variation, here's a classic, non-classical ;D example in Duke Ellington's C Jam Blues - the basic riff is just 2 notes (seven Cs, one G):

Agreeable, Olga. Personally, for modern flamenco guitar I prefer Paco de Lucia ;):

Speaking of Spanish guitarists, of course one cannot fail to mention Andrés Segovia, here playing Isaac Albeniz's Asturias:

and Francisco Tarrega's Capricho arabe:

...a title that shows Spain's indebtedness to Arabic music, particularly in the south - Andalucìa and hence flamenco ;).

Paco was the reason I took up guitar when I was 13. :) 
And I played a Tarrega piece in my graduation class.

Here's another one of my favorite flamenco guitarists, with an awesome tune:

Another famous Spanish guitarist  is Narciso Yepes, who invented the 10-string guitar and used it in 1964 to play Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxwceLlaODM[/youtube]

He gained an international reputation after writing and performing Romance anonimo for the 1952 French film Jeux interdits, directed by René Clément:

R U M B A !

Rumba is a dance rhythm originating in Cuba from Son, and became very popular the 1930s also thanks to Cuban Xavier Cugat and his orchestra, starting with his El manisero (The Peanut Vendor):

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFpB8UyzU5U&feature=related[/youtube]

and the famous Tico Tico:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJcLUxKUOiQ[/youtube]

However, I discovered that the real inventor of the rumba was Ludwig van Beethoven :o, as evidenced by the 3rd movement (Rondò, Allegro scherzando) of his Piano Concerto No. 1.

The Rondò or Rondeau (merry-go-round) is a musical form often used by classical composers for the 3rd, final movement of instrumental concertos, and has a cyclic structure of the type A'-B'-A''-C'-A'''-...  etc. That is, the initial theme (A') is repeated with variations and interspersed with other themes (B',C',...).

The structure here is A'-B'-A''-C'-A'''-B''-A''''. Compare theme C' (played at 2.42-2.55) below with the Tico Tico above :D:

The Rondo form as described was used by all the three masters of Classic style. And as Papa Hayden was the eldest I am sure he would have invented it (perhaps it was there before and became integral part of the Classic style).
As such Rondo form is used in the 4th and final movement of a symphoney or 3rd and final movement of a concerto.

Actually, the Rondo form dates from the Baroque period - François Couperin (1668-1733) and J.S. Bach (1685-1750) used it, among others:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6hxXISXNe8&feature=related[/youtube]

and therefore antedates by at least 50 years Haydn (1732-1809), who developed the sonata rondo form, by mixing the two ;).

Quote
As such Rondo form is used in the 4th and final movement of a symphoney or 3rd and final movement of a concerto.
It was also widely used in chamber music.

Carmina Burana a musical composition by Carl Orff is mostly in Latin with some German.

1. Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi (Fortune, Empress of the World)

O Fortuna (Chorus) O Fortune

 
O Fortuna                           O Fortune,
velut luna                          like the moon
statu variabilis,                   you are changeable,
semper crescis                      ever waxing
aut decrescis;                      and waning;
vita detestabilis                   hateful life
nunc obdurat                        first oppresses
et tunc curat                       and then soothes
ludo mentis aciem,                  as fancy takes it;
egestatem,                          poverty
potestatem                          and power
dissolvit ut glaciem.               it melts them like ice.

Sors immanis                        Fate - monstrous
et inanis,                          and empty,
rota tu volubilis,                  you whirling wheel,
status malus,                       you are malevolent,
vana salus                          well-being is vain
semper dissolubilis,                and always fades to nothing,
obumbrata                           shadowed
et velata                           and veiled
michi quoque niteris;               you plague me too;
nunc per ludum                      now through the game
dorsum nudum                        I bring my bare back
fero tui sceleris.                  to your villainy.

Sors salutis                        Fate is against me
et virtutis                         in health
michi nunc contraria,               and virtue,
est affectus                        driven on
et defectus                         and weighted down,
semper in angaria.                  always enslaved.
Hac in hora                         So at this hour
sine mora                           without delay
corde pulsum tangite;               pluck the vibrating strings;
quod per sortem                     since Fate
sternit fortem,                     strikes down the string man,
mecum omnes plangite!               everyone weep with me!

2. Fortune plango vulnera (I bemoan the wounds of Fortune)

 
Fortune plango vulnera              I bemoan the wounds of Fortune
stillantibus ocellis                with weeping eyes,
quod sua michi munera               for the gifts she made me
subtrahit rebellis.                 she perversely takes away.
Verum est, quod legitur,            It is written in truth,
fronte capillata,                   that she has a fine head of hair,
sed plerumque sequitur              but, when it comes to seizing an opportunity
Occasio calvata.                    she is bald.

In Fortune solio                    On Fortune's throne
sederam elatus,                     I used to sit raised up,
prosperitatis vario                 crowned with
flore coronatus;                    the many-coloured flowers of prosperity;
quicquid enim florui                though I may have flourished
felix et beatus,                    happy and blessed,
nunc a summo corrui                 now I fall from the peak
gloria privatus.                    deprived of glory.

Fortune rota volvitur:              The wheel of Fortune turns;
descendo minoratus;                 I go down, demeaned;
alter in altum tollitur;            another is raised up;
nimis exaltatus                     far too high up
rex sedet in vertice                sits the king at the summit -
caveat ruinam!                      let him fear ruin!
nam sub axe legimus                 for under the axis is written
Hecubam reginam.                    Queen Hecuba.

Phebus novo more                    Phoebus once more

spirans in odore.                   scented breezes.
Certatim pro bravio                 Let us rush to compete
curramus in amore.                  for love's prize. Ah!

Cytharizat cantico                  In harp-like tones sings
dulcis Philomena,                   the sweet nightingale,
flore rident vario                  with many flowers
prata iam serena,                   the joyous meadows are laughing,

25. O Fortuna       (O Fortune)

 

O Fortuna,                          O Fortune,
velut luna                          like the moon
statu variabilis,                   you are changeable,
semper crescis                      ever waxing
aut decrescis;                      and waning;
vita detestabilis                   hateful life
nunc obdurat                        first oppresses
et tunc curat                       and then soothes
ludo mentis aciem,                  as fancy takes it;
egestatem,                          poverty
potestatem                          and power
dissolvit ut glaciem.               it melts them like ice.

Sors immanis                        Fate - monstrous
et inanis,                          and empty,
rota tu volubilis,                  you whirling wheel,
status malus,                       you are malevolent,
vana salus                          well-being is in vain
semper dissolubilis,                and always fades to nothing,
obumbrata                           shadowed
et velata                           and veiled
michi quoque niteris;               you plague me too;
nunc per ludum                      now through the game
dorsum nudum                        I bring my bare back
fero tui sceleris.                  to your villainy.

Sors salutis                        Fate is against me
et virtutis                         in health
michi nunc contraria,               and virtue,
est affectus                        driven on
et defectus                         and weighted down,
semper in angaria.                  always enslaved.
Hac in hora                         So at this hour
sine mora                           without delay
corde pulsum tangite;               pluck the vibrating strings;
quod per sortem                     since Fate
sternit fortem,                     strikes down the strong man,
mecum omnes plangite!               everybody weep with me!

Well Bear, for a knuckle-dragger - as you styled yourself in another thread ;) - you show surprisingly eclectic music tastes :D.

Here's a another beautiful song with different things occurring (perhaps our current Italian linguistic understands the lyrics)
Mir already provided  the lyrics. Here's more about Carl Orff's piece:
Quote
Carmina Burana , Latin for "Songs from Benediktbeuern", is the name given to a manuscript of 254 poems and dramatic texts from the 11th or 12th century, although some are from the 13th century. The pieces were written almost entirely in Medieval Latin; a few in Middle High German, and some with traces of Old French or Provençal. Many are macaronic, a mixture of Latin and German or French vernacular.

They were written by students and clergy when the Latin idiom was the lingua franca across Italy and western Europe for travelling scholars, universities and theologians. Most of the poems and songs appear to be the work of Goliards, clergy (mostly students) who sent up and satirized the Church. The collection preserves the works of a number of poets, including Peter of Blois, Walter of Châtillon and the anonymous one, referred to as the Archpoet.

The collection was found in 1803 in the Bavarian monastery of Benediktbeuern and is now housed in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. Along with the Carmina Cantabrigiensia, the Carmina Burana is the most important collection of Goliard and vagabond songs.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carmina_Burana

Goliardo/goliardia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goliard) is a term still used in Italian, referring to the now-obsolete antics of university students: seniors harassing freshmen (matricula minus quam merda esset: a freshman is less than sh!t), demanding they pay - used to be a carton of cigarettes - for a papiro, a parchment-like pass granting free circulation on university grounds, etc. etc.

Quote
I have no idea what the song means, but the voices are beautiful. Joculatores Upsalienses - Gaudete
I can help you here. Gaudete is a Christmas carol/motet from the Piae cantiones ecclesiasticae et scholasticae veterum episcoporum (Devout ecclesiastical and school songs of the old bishops), a collection of late medieval Latin songs compiled by Jacobus Finno and published in 1582 by Theodoricus Petri Nylandensi, also known as Theodoric Petri of Nyland (ca. 1560- ca. 1630), and is known to have been sung by the nuns of the Convent of Chester.

Here you'll find the Latin lyrics and their English translation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaudete.

We recently added this motet to our choir's repertoire, and shall be singing it in our next concert this coming Sunday ;).

Another famous piece in the same vein is the Coventry Carol:

Well Bear, for a knuckle-dragger - as you styled yourself in another thread ;) - you show surprisingly eclectic music tastes :D.

Thanks Sandro, you have no idea how eclectic my tastes run ;D  At last count I had approximately 2000 CD's.  I have everything from Metallica to the classics like Bach, Chopin and everything in between.  One of my ways of relaxing after a particularly stressful day is to sit on my patio in the dark while smoking a Padron and sipping some single barrel Jack Daniels on the rocks in a heavy crystal gold inlaid highball tumbler with some Beethoven or Bach playing in the background as I watch the lightening dance across the Texas sky.  I tend to listen to the heavier stuff when I am at the gym working out.

 P.S don't tell anyone or my reputation as a goose stepping knuckle dragging blue meanie reputation will be ruined  ;D

Mir

Thanks for the lyrics, I found them years ago when I first discovered Carmina Burana.  I was surprised when I was doing my research that the actual music was not older then it was.

It's one of the 3 Trionfi (Triumphs) that Carl Orff wrote:

- Carmina Burana (1937)
- Catulli Carmina (1943)
- Trionfo di Afrodite (1953)

Here's a sample from Catulli Carmina (Catullus's Poems):

THE ELECTRIC GUITAR

Les Paul (Lester William Polfuss) is reputed to have invented it in the 1930s:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZ_5ubk2H4k[/youtube]

He became a partner of the Gibson guitar manufacturers, later rivalling with Fender:

What's your singing range Mies, soprano or contralto? As you can see, mine is a chamber choir - or rather a broom-closet choir since we're only 13 :-[ - so we could do with some additional womanpower ;).

We just had one defection among our contraltos - the wife of our former choirmaster - but next September we should be joined by a new soprano and two new basses (thank heaven, being a 1-man bass section for an entire year with nobody else to 'lean on' has been a bit of a burden for me :().

Here's another piece from our concert, more modern but in the same polyphonic style:

We had soprano I and II (lower), and alt (also two). I normally took the lower (mezzo?) soprano or higher alt. That's the range I am most comfortable in.  :)

Sorry I do not know these terms too well - I always hated the "theory of music" in school - all exams on this subject were passed by me on pure luck. Shameful, but true.

i like polyphonies a lot - probably most of anything. One of the reasons why i like some of contemporary/electronic music - because they use same idea as in classic polyphonies - possibly less sophisticated and more "mechanic", but still..  

Very nice videos - thank you Sandro :-)

 Rammstein, I like listening to them when I am in the gym, good for getting the blood flowing.

I like listening to them when working on urgent projects :-) probably for the same reason as you - also gets my blood flowing. )
when exercising i listen to something of this kind:

- gives me good pace for workout, and is relatively monotonous which is also good for exercising purposes.

So you sang in a 6-part choir? Wow :D. How many choristers in total? We are too few now to venture in that direction yet, maybe sometime in the future as we improve, our new, 28-y.o. choirmaster wants to introduce us to full contrapuntal Renaissance music next year :o.

We had a short 3-part canon in our program, W.A. Mozart's Dona nobis, but he said it was our worst performance, so I'm not going to upload it to Youtube :-[ and cannot attach it here because it's too large (10.5 Mb).

I sang all together in 3 different choirs. In church - we had only women. If I remember correctly there were not more than 4 parts (and maybe less). Also not too many people - around 20 in total. Some were more "professional", some - just volunteers from regular attendants of the church. The other two choirs were from university and musical school. Those were larger. 50-60 people in each. There were also men in them so there were parts for men. We had both monastic and secular music in repertoire.
"Dona nobis" sounds very familiar. We sang it too :-)
Would be still great to hear your choir performance.  :-)

just found this one:

I used to listen to RATM when I was younger.  I still have a couple Pantera CD's that are just collecting dust now.  I had a friend that was into death metal - Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Sepultura - and we listened to that stuff constantly.    :hipdude:   That's not my taste now, thankfully, as I'd have moral problems listening to a song titled "Entrails Ripped from a Virgin's ____" or "Dismembered and Molested".  I probably shouldn't have even posted that.  :evil:

I don't want to scare you, so I'll return to an area where I'm more predictable :D.

Here's an interesting example of a rather reputable German composer (born in 1685) who was 'inspired' ;) by a work (L'Estro Armonico) of an earlier Italian composer, Antonio Vivaldi (born in 1678):

TECHNOLOGY & MUSIC
Keyboard Instruments

The tinny sound of the 4 harpsichords in J.S. Bach's Concerto, due their strings being 'plucked' in guitar-like fashion, is a reminder of how technical innovations may affect composers and the music they produce.

Harpsichord music was mostly written with short, rapidly changing notes because of the limited dynamics of the instrument. Until a harpsichord maker from Padua, Bartolomeo Cristoforis, invented at the end of the 1600s his gravicembalo col piano e il forte where the strings were hit by small hammers rather than plucked.

The instrument became known as the fortepiano (loud-soft) and, after about a hundred years of improvements and refinements, the pianoforte, piano for short.

Most of the keyboard music written from, say, 1750 to 1810, that today we hear performed on a concert grand piano, was originally played on the fortepiano. Here's the same piece on the two different instruments:

Brass Instruments

A similar improvement occurred in the early 1800 when valves were invented for brass instruments, which theretofore could provide a decent range of notes only in their higher register through harmonics, as is still done on bugles.

The Flute

Once again in the same period, Bavarian flautist, composer, acoustician and silversmith Theobald Boehm didn't like the inconvenient fingering and reedy sound of contemporary wooden flutes (recorders), and invented a metal alternative with keys, the classical, modern transverse flute.

TECHNOLOGY & MUSIC
The Theremin

Perhaps the most 'technological' yet invented is this FSU instrument 8):

Quote
The theremin was originally the product of Russian government-sponsored research into proximity sensors. The instrument was invented by a young Russian physicist named Lev Sergeivich Termen (known in the West as Léon Theremin) in October 1920 after the outbreak of the Russian civil war. After positive reviews at Moscow electronics conferences, Theremin demonstrated the device to Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin. Lenin was so impressed with the device that he began taking lessons in playing it, commissioned six hundred of the instruments for distribution throughout the Soviet Union, and sent Theremin on a trip around the world to demonstrate the latest Soviet technology and the invention of electronic music. After a lengthy tour of Europe, during which time he demonstrated his invention to packed houses, Theremin found his way to the United States, where he patented his invention in 1928 (US1661058).

It's about this: who put that video on Youtube does NOT want it to appear anywhere else, for whatever reason. It's an option (share) that one can turn on or off when uploading.

If it's OFF, you can only put the LINK elsewhere - as Olga did - which, when clicked, will connect you to the Youtube page where you can watch it.

I've run into the same problem with some stuff I wanted to appear in this thread, and had to find alternative, shareable pieces. Therefore it's a good idea to check if an embed actually works BEFORE posting it - you can do that even while in Preview.

i am so stuck on Cafe Tacuba right now I cant even listen to anything else.. you know the best thing about seeing them in TJ was that they played for so long.. I knew they would which was why I didn't go to see them in LA plus the fact the the floor pass was $25 in TJ and $250 in LA.  And I had some AMAZING food down the coast a bit from the concert venue.. something they called shrimp papagayo.. big shrimps stuffed with crab meat wrapped in bacon and slowly grilled with some kind of dipping sauce.. 6 of them cost 6 bucks.. YUMMY! 

the crowd went crazy over this one.. I didn't know the song before

i love many types of music.  Of course the stuff from my youth (the 70s) is my favorite; however, I love just walking down the street and getting pulled into a pub by the sounds of young people making music. I often buy their CDs and they become my favorite iPod plays.

Ha! But I bet you were not asked to participate in a recording session :D.

Back in October 1978 (prét-à-porter season in Milan) I was returning home from dinner at a restaurant when I noticed a crowd at the entrance of a old downtown mansion. Out of curiosity I parked nearby, ventured inside, saw the end of a fashion show and bumped into a Brazilian colleague and his wife, who asked me if I had any programs for the rest of the night. Hearing I had none, they invited me to join them at Castello di Carimate (some 30 Km NW), then equipped with an advanced 24-track recording studio, where their friend Robero Camerini, born in San Paulo and then a rising Italian punk rock star, was finishing an album and needed volunteer help.

I was a bit disappointed when my contribution turned out to be part of the crowd noise for a piece describing the proletarian expropriation of garments in a Fiorucci shop :-[.

LOL no I wasn't, but, those old guys with BIG hair were really wanting me to be staaaar struck.. I was busy.. just wanted to get my stuff delivered and out of there, plus i was never really a Journey fan...

Satchmo performed at Teatro Dal Verme with Trummy Young (trombone). I went to see them on two consecutive nights.

The Duke performed at Milan's Conservatory concert hall. I still remember his drummer walking onto the empty stage on unsteady legs, sitting down at his drums to arrange them to his liking, and falling face forward making a hell of a racket - he was stone drunk, but that did not adversely affect his drumming performance later on ;D.

FOREIGNERS AT SANREMO

As you may know, the Festival della Canzone Italiana di Sanremo is held every year in February since 1950. For a long time each song entry was presented by 2 singers, and in the 1960s it became almost a habit to have a foreigner as 2nd singer, usually performing in Italian - with some odd results for our ears ;D. Here are a few examples of these participations:

Sandro.. a girl ran a red light Sunday night and smashed into the side of my car.. car is totaled.. my back is feeling better today but my neck still hurts.  One of those events that makes you think about things. 

Plus.. my lady has been AWESOME!  Even though she spent all her money today she hasn't giggled like that in a long time.. it was music to my ears... she was positively bubbly and adorable!  I think she is getting over all the drama of the last year and the girl that got me on the plane is back to being herself.  Patience is soooo important.

That video reminds me of one on John Lennon's Imagine, showing a girl crossing various rooms and growing up in the process, but I couldn't find on Youtube.

Bear's train ride, on the other hand, reminded me that I also love the sound of the accordion - and its smaller brother the bandoneon, which of course means tango/milonga and Astor Piazzolla:

Mental associations are indeed strange. I suddenly remembered Les compagnons de la chanson, a French group popular in the 1950s, mostly for their Les trois cloches, sung here with Edith Piaf:

CLASSICAL MUSIC
Un-Classical Uses Of ;)

Changing a few words, the title of this thread could become: Music to make love to :devilish:

[youtube=325,250]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1FZMIP9SK4[/youtube]  [youtube=325,250]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWnmCu3U09w[/youtube]

The first example, Maurice Ravel's Bolero, was publicly used in the movie "10" to score a sex scene with Bo Derek and Dudley Moore, starting at 2:50 in the clip.

The second example, Richard Strauss's Also sprach Zarathustra was NOT used by Stanley Kubrick in  his "2001, A Space Odyssey" for similar purposes. However, a girl I met long ago was probably inspired by "10" and insisted to use THAT as our private background score. Her choice seemed needlessly dramatic - rather than sensual - to me, so I dumped her after our first and only duet 8).

Any similar musical experiences ;D?

A curiosity: in the movie, The Continental is possibly the longest musical number in history, I timed it to a total of 13 minutes IIRC, while Gene Kelly's Singing In The Rain is only 4 minutes.

Sandro.. did you happen to catch the lyrics of any of those songs?  Especially the last one?  Wait.. you wouldn't be pullin my leg now would ya?

So.. anyway.. while I had the S and M device applied to my typing fingers preventing me from "speaking" I did have the good fortune of going to see this show with 100,000 of my "best" friends... straight up rock and roll and high volume.. 3rd song is the best IMO

"The Girl Can't Help It" - Little Richard
"Tempo's Tempo" - Nino Tempo
"My Idea of Love" - Johnny Olenn
"I Ain't Gonna Cry No More" - Johnny Olenn
"Ready Teddy" - Little Richard
"She's Got It" - Little Richard

My girlfriend sent this to me today. Some unknown person out there shot a portion of the Yoav show we attended in St. Petersburg a few weeks ago and posted it on YouTube. What a thrill it was to receive this and recall what it was like at that very moment, surrounded by a crowd that was 90% women, most of whom were beautiful (of course), while holding my lady in my arms while our bodies moved uncontrollably to the music.  :)

A SHORT HISTORY OF MODERN ITALIAN SONGS
The Cantautori period (Part 1)

I haven't yet posted any 'modern' Italian songs for obvious linguistic considerations, but maybe someone might be interested in this aspect of our pop music.

Up to the end of the 1950s, the roles of song writers and singers was definitely separate, with the latter leaning towards belcanto interpretations and being rewarded by winning our annual Festival della Canzone Italiana at Sanremo (started in 1951) with entries like:

[youtube=325,250]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AMH7HthxHs[/youtube] [youtube=325,250]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwjOJKGoEEc[/youtube]

The above winners for 1951 and 1956 will give you an idea of the then prevailing standard.

Then a new phenomenon emerged, that of cantautori (singing authors) who would perform as well as write their songs. In 1958 the competition was won by:

[youtube=325,250][youtube=325,250]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_rLWpMT9yo[/youtube][/youtube]
Better known internationally as Volare. However, we were still in a period when melody was paramount, and lyrics took second place.

Then a younger generation came along, possibly influenced by the earlier French authors of the late 1940s-early 1950s, who thought that a song should also tell a modern emotional story and that therefore lyrics should be less 'traditional' than before.
   
This new wave of cantautori was initially a group of then young men from Genoa, first among them painter Gino Paoli, born in 1934 and still active nowadays at age 75. His hits: Il cielo in una stanza (A skyful in my room, 1959), La gatta (The cat, 1960), Senza fine (Without end, 1961), Sapore di sale (A taste of salt, 1963).

were just two of my heroes - near the top of my ladder was Miles...

Apropos of the thread subject, here are a couple of photos of my choir (male section & choirmaster during an organ interlude, whole choir) taken this past Sunday when we performed in the concert hall of the Casa di riposo per musicisti Giuseppe Verdi here in Milan.

The Casa di riposo per musicisti (http://www.casaverdi.org/) - literally, rest home for musicians - is an institution created by Giuseppe Verdi in 1899 - shortly before his death in 1901 - in order "to offer a safe haven to those aged singing artists not favoured by fortune, or who did not possess the virtue of thrift in their youth".

Casa Verdi - as it is affectionately called by us Milanese - opened in 1902 and operated with the very substantial funds bequeathed by Verdi, as well as the rights resulting from the performance of his musical works until 1962. It has offered free hospitality to more than 1,000 musicians over time. Good old Giuseppe is portrayed in top hat and white scarf in the painting behind me, and rests alongside his wife in a crypt there.

I wanted to thank Vaughn for giving a little advice about posting multiple youtube files. I will try it out soon. I was clicking the youtube icon and placing the url between the brackets. It worked once but the other tries all that was left was my text and a blank page. Maybe it was because the url was extremely long and extended onto a second line. I have a habit of making things seem more complicated than they are.

BTW, you can remove from the URL the ampersand and anything following it:

I had just finished sequencing Woman In Love (Brothers Gibb, 1980 - uploaded to my website at www.floriani.it/ballroom-eng.htm), when it occurred me to post Barbra Streisand's recording:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHqAllSQ_eM[/youtube]

Her remarkable singing capabilities allow her to hold a note (F5, IINM) for all of 10" (2:25-2:35), for 4" a pure note , the rest in vibrato:
"but I give you it AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL" :o

No, but I must confess that I am conservative enough to prefer Maurice Ravel's original orchestration - he was an undisputed MASTER at it - and Maurice Bejart's choreography ;).

Has anyone else ever read Zap Comix?
I think there was a Frank Zappa character named Freak Zipper.
Or maybe it was National Lampoon.
I remember seeing it somewhere in the early 70's.
Maybe Creem or Rolling Stone.
Damn I'm old.
Anyway, I think it depends on which group of musicians Zappa used.
He had some outstanding players in his various groups.

Old Barb; wasn't it Glenn Gould who said her voice was the most perfect musical instrument?  As a not-so-old, non-European, I am here to second Mr. Sandro's appreciation of classical.  Once you've got a piece like this in your compass:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TdnDEnJb0o

Even modern smarties like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knII3S0MZtY

Don't measure up.

Still I keep looking though and often feel, in searching for new music of value, like a man stranded on a desert isle in search of a ship to bring him a good meal.  Mostly it is just used diapers and, at best, boxes of cake-frosting that wash up.  The last musical voice who has been really satisfying has been ... (Can you guess?)  Anyway here are few little ditties that seem to have a shard of musical merit.  It might be the start of something, but most likely not.

Save The Last Dance For Me
Originally released in 1960 by Ben E. King with The Drifters:

Quote
Ben E. King (born September 28, 1938) is an American soul singer. He is perhaps best known as the singer and co-composer of "Stand by Me," a U.S. top 10 hit in both 1961 and 1987 and a #1 hit in the UK in 1987, and as one of the principal lead singers of the R&B vocal group The Drifters.

I just finished MIDI-sequencing one of my favourite pieces - Maurice Ravel's La Valse (1919-1920) - and uploaded it to the 'Concert Hall' page of my website:
www.floriani.it/hall-eng.htm

It was a considerable job - 755 measures for a total of 18', with 27 modulations to different keys :o - which I did in order to gain some insight into the technique of this master orchestrator ;).

Regina coeli is a famous 12th-century Marian antiphon which later was set to polyphony by several composers, Mozart included. My choir is preparing Antonio Lotti's (1666-1740) version:

Ah yes, Sinead.  I suppose she's got an edge.  But it is true, many Irish I know also do, as do many groups with a violent history, perhaps explaining the Russian variation on the theme as well.

Perhaps her Regina coeli was a token of her healing.  Emotional turbulence supplies a great creative force in the arts.  Knowing that has spawned a legion of poseurs - whose aim is not art but to mine out a fortune by finding the correct expression of angst to match the age.  Also perhaps an artist can begin on the right footing, find an audience and seek to maintain their power with feigned expression.  That is what happened to Elvis, McCartney and not a few others.

Music does have strong trans-formative power and addresses a person at many levels.  At a certain level I think punk can be trans-formative; it gets one moving at least.  One discards the childish things though and moves on.  Many people don't like this but I think the concept of 'higher' arts is valid in that the higher arts correspond, sometimes in complicated ways, to more elevated states of human development.  Which is not to say that all elevated people listen to Bach as there are many pathways through which human development may take place.  Anyway there is this notion that intrigues, stating that the 'music' happens between the notes.  That the notes set a stage for the perception of silence.  This has a certain ring about it and seems very Asian.  A display at our Seattle art museum  teaches that the Chinese art of the tea is not about the tea flavors but is intended to introduce one to different aspects of water.  So the long pause in this well-known piece of music has always intrigued:

Good ol' Glenn.  They don't make them like they used to.  Much as I really am a big fan of Glenn I will say that his radical interpretations of Bach seem to miss the mark.  That is why I've posted the Goldberg under Schiff, who, in my mind takes the cake for the interpretation of Bach.  On the other hand, consider this:

I think both forms influenced American music considerably, and the Irish dance is probably the 'forefather/foremother' of:

Quite different, I'd say. From your clip, I'd call this Sara Nixey a 'confidential' singer - she whispers more than sing - Sinéad has much more dynamics in her pieces. 

Typically, vibrato is the 'last resort' of good singers, i.e. a way to keep on singing when almost out of breath ;) - see Barbra's example upthread, and the following:
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vzwC3LYA-A[/youtube]

Mina is probably the Italian pop singer with the most vocal talent of these past 50 years, and you may notice how she uses vibrato very sparingly, at the end of some long-held notes.
Title: Re: Music I love
Post by: Shostakovich on February 23, 2010, 07:40:01 PM
Confidential Singer - OK, seems fair for Sara

Good info on vibrato and I understand what you mean about extending the singing when out of breath. 

When I thought about vibrato I had more of this sort of thing in mind:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Wfohl-zEDU[/youtube

No?

First time I hear Mina.  Curious to see how American Pop music reflects in other cultures.  I suppose in the 1960s the US really was the poop.  Surprising to me on my trip to Pare to see them selling adverts for 1960s Oldsmobiles and pictures of JFK along the Seine.

Anyway the Mina video reminded me of a clip from the D. Lynch film Mulholland Drive, the famous street that overlooks LA.

Too bad the clip isn't on you tube anymore - here is the original

No, I could hear no vibrato there ::). Vibrato is a technical term in music with a very specific meaning:

vibrato is a periodic variation in the pitch (frequency) of a musical note

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e7/Vibrato_and_tremolo_graph.PNG)
In singing it sounds like a very fast ululation ;).

Somehow half of my post did not transfer over.  I did not hear vibrato in Linda Scott.  In listening to the Mina recording, however, I thought of Linda.  In the 1960s, the US really was the poop.  Watching the Mina video made the influence of us pop culture apparent enough.  Interesting to see how one's own culture reflects in another.  There is a certain love/hate relationship between Europe and the US isn't there?

In areas other than music, I'd say ;). Love started before WWII with swing/jazz and movie musicals, then exploded in the mid 1950s with R'n'R, at least here in Italy.

Our pop singers were initially called urlatori (screamers), then a new category emerged, that of cantautori. i.e. composers who sang their own songs. An example of the latter is Gino Paoli, who in 1963 released a, for us, memorable Sapore di sale (A Taste of Salt):

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJ5UHlOskWo[/youtube]

A hallmark of our pop music of that period was the terzinato accompaniment.

Our pop singers were initially called urlatori (screamers), then a new category emerged, that of cantautori. i.e. composers who sang their own songs. An example of the latter is Gino Paoli, who in 1963 released a, for us, memorable Sapore di sale (A Taste of Salt):

A hallmark of our pop music of that period was the terzinato accompaniment.
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/it/d/da/Terzina_di_crome.png)

I rather liked Mina but find it hard to believe Gino could make much of an impression on anyone -- and what a curious little accompaniment that was.  His song sounds a little like:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mn6pyJynA78&feature=related[/youtube]

Bah - it always seemed completely overwrought to me.

And how is this fellow regarded now in Italy?  Like Berlusconi?

You have to consider what our prevailing music was at the time - melodic belcanto with corny lyrics:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrRIAWpIza8[/youtube]
Sapore di sale was a much-needed breath of fresh air for us teenagers ;).

And how is this fellow regarded now in Italy?
Adriano Celentano started out as an urlatore imitating Elvis Presley's body movements - he was nicknamed il molleggiato (the springy fellow) in the 1960s - here in 24,000 Kisses:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jR9X7GEV1vM[/youtube]

A convinced environmentalist, he's been a major figure in our musical scene for the past 50+ years - he's 72 now, still revered though obviously less active than before.

The terzinato came from the States, too (1955):

Eh, pop music has always had a painful side to it.  With all the great music in our history it's hard to imagine how anyone could spend time with this:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AkLE4X-bbU[/youtube]

or this:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jMOTmOiE1g[/youtube]

or this:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e__9l6B5WJE[/youtube]

"raindrops keep falling on my head" and "ebony an ivory" also come to mind.  I suppose once you have a big name you can get away with anything.

So Celentano was the Italian Elvis?  Did they have one in France, Spain and Germany too?  And was Italy similarly invaded by the Brits?  Certainly the big names were popular but what about:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_D2XD341xHo[/youtube]

I've thought that the cultural force that made groups like Chad and Jeremy popular was the rough-around-the-edges state of "culture" in the US - we needed the Brits to come and polish us up a bit.  It probably doesn't apply to Italy.

Anyway, I have another question.   For better or worse, it seems that psychedelic music is another one the US can claim credit for.  The creative nucleus for that movement started here:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwzaifhSw2c[/youtube] 

It was way too arty/extreme for mainline audiences in the US, but influenced all the big players at that time and carries quite a punch today.  I can't imagine it was very popular in Europe either but Europeans have a way of way of discovering essential trends in the US before they gain wide exposure on our soil: music of John Cage, Elliot Carter and Tom Waits come to mind as does, in the pop field, that movie Donnie Darko - quite a Phenom in England.

France had Johnny Halliday:

Spain was still under Franco, and his régime did not encourage change - in any area ;). Germany has always been a non-entity in pop music.

In the 1960s the arrival of the Beatles stimulated the appearance of complessi, i.e. musical groups - we had dozens of them, including a number of transplanted Brits singing in Italian - more or less :D:

Of course France had an Elvis.  Interesting about Spain.

Ya north Europe had no pop - that was a joke; a German Elvis.  The Germans eventually got on board and stole the mantle from US and Brit glam rockers for a time:

Maybe you don't know where the Rammstein take their namer from:

Quote
Rammstein takes their name indirectly from the German town of Ramstein-Miesenbach, the site of a flight show disaster on 28 August 1988. The band's signature song, "Rammstein", is a commemoration of the disaster.
Quote
The Ramstein airshow disaster was one of the world's deadliest airshow disasters. It took place in front of an audience of about 300,000 people on August 28, 1988 in Ramstein, state of Rheinland-Pfalz, West Germany, near the city of Kaiserslautern at the U.S. Ramstein Air Base airshow Flugtag '88. Sixty-seven spectators and three pilots died, and 346 spectators sustained serious injuries in the resulting explosion and fire.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramstein_airshow_disaster

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MG1f3ukUxYI&NR=1[/youtube]

This was the only accident our IAF aerobatics team was ever involved in - unfortunately also the deadliest ever recorded, IINM.
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/bd/313°Gruppo-Patch.png/100px-313°Gruppo-Patch.png)
Frecce Tricolori is the only team in the world doing aerobatics with 10 aircraft, 9 always flying in formation and 1 - the soloist - often flying on his own to engage the audience's attention while the rest regroup for a new figure. IIRC, the accident was caused by the team leader having to act as soloist at Ramstein because the usual soloist was not available. The tragedy happened right at the end of their show, possibly because he was starting to relax after an unusually exacting performance.

I love that song... It was one of those "Touched my soul" songs. 

Thank you.  Never heard this version before.

Ah Oui.  I never liked the original.  BBR does some interesting things with it.  Sara Nixey 'sings' in an emotionless style and and the spare instrumentation with dynamics rendered in dissonance complicates the simple emotion.  It made the song interesting to me and in fact I discovered the lyrics for the first time, which, in the pop version, I never paid attention to; they are quite beautiful.

Son, - thanks for the Jazz posts.  It is the musical form I am least acquainted with.

Yes I agree that was an emotional song that was sung with the least emotion imaginable.  But I have always been a lyrics guy... if the music is good.

Ol' Lou.  Is it music though?  I see Lou as a poet who understood there was no money in it and so through in a few guitars and went to the recording studio.  He was lucky with VU.  Without 'Venus in Furs' and 'Heroin' I'm certain he'd have succumbed to the Bowery long ago.  Tom Waits has been more successful at turning poetry into music.  There is a piece by Lou Reed called "What's good" by Lou that I like allot - good Q.  Too bad the studio version is not on YouTube.  So I guess it's back to Tom.

Thinking of the Velvet Underground and that whole Andy Warhol scene.
I was watching "Tomorrow" with Tom Snyder back in 1974 and the show was broadcasting from some NYC underground club (Max's Kansas City maybe?). I saw people sporting mohawks and orange hair way before the punk era actually started.
Why do young people today think they invented this freaky style? It was around 35 years ago and so was rap music. My friend bought a rap album from a dj way back in 1971 or 1972. The only difference is that the rap album had clean lyrics back then.

The Pavane pour une infante défunte was  written for solo piano by Ravel in 1899 when he was studying composition at the Conservatoire de Paris under Gabriel Fauré, himself author of a Pavane:

The Pavanes listed are among my favorites.  I did not know Faure was Ravel's teacher, though it is hardly surprising.

When I heard the Peace Piece I thought of Barber's:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV3SHBFyDZM[/youtube]

Like the Pavanes, also slow and sad.

The adagio takes its melody from the second movement of Barber's string quartet.  I could not find a good version of this on youtube.  I have a recording by the Emerson Str. quartet that absolutely hits the mark.  There are some foibles in the version below.  The more spare instrumentation makes the music less sensuous but to me more affecting.

Although slow, the pavane is not necessarily sad, e.g. Fauré's. It was a courtly Renaissance dance performed by a procession of couples:
(http://cache-media.britannica.com/eb-media/95/9695-003-4938C126.gif)
Quote
Pavane (probably from Italian padovana, “Paduan”), a majestic processional dance of the 16th- and 17th-century European aristocracy. Until about 1650 the pavane opened ceremonial balls and was used as a display of elegant dress. Adapted from the basse danse, an earlier court dance, the pavane presumably traveled from Italy to France and England by way of Spain; in southern Spain it was performed in churches on solemn occasions.

The pavane’s basic movement, to music in 2/2 or 4/4 time, consisted of forward and backward steps; the dancers rose onto the balls of their feet and swayed from side to side. A column of couples circled the ballroom, and the dancers occasionally sang. By about 1600, livelier steps like the fleuret (a brief lift of each foot before a step) made the dance less pompous. The pavane was customarily followed by its afterdance, the vigorous galliard. The passamezzo was a livelier Italian contemporary of the pavane.
http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/447264/pavane

The sadness of Ravel's Pavane pour une infante défunte is a consequence of its title: he described the piece as "an evocation of a pavane that a little Spanish princess might, in former times, have danced at court".

That was cryptic.  In the waltz generally, there is a kind of hypnotic quality - I've thought of it as the original trance-dance.  Yet your waltz seems to emphasize an architectural element which makes it much more of a thinker's piece.  I thought the use of the percussion was especially innovative.  Perhaps that is why the piece works well when played in a loop; the waltz rhythm maintains the steady pace and yet repetition is needed to assimilate the other elements.  In that sense it reminds me of the link to Ravel's piece.  But now also I am reminded of Stravinsky's tango which also puts a thinker's touch to a form that normally conjures a sensory expression:

That was cryptic.  In the waltz generally, there is a kind of hypnotic quality - I've thought of it as the original trance-dance.  Yet your waltz seems to emphasize an architectural element which makes it much more of a thinker's piece.
Goes to show how open music is to subjective interpretations :D.

I would not think of Ravel's La Valse, to cite a well-known example of orchestral waltz, as hypnotic, but rather as ebullient and trascinante (sweeping one away). His Bolero is more on the hypnotic side IMO, with the endless repetition of the same musical phrase by different instruments.

Let me explain how my Waltzy originated.

1. My original intention was to orchestrate a well-known Gregorian chant, the Kyrie Eleison: it's modal and therefore contains a few interesting 'blue' notes that could have been exploited for a blues-type version.
[youtube=225,150]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6oM1iLJH6k[/youtube]
2. The chant score is in B minor and 4/4 (more or less, Gregorian chant is not measure-bound). I orchestrated its first 2 phrases, and they still sounded too grave and somber.
3. Therefore I decided to introduce a lighter interval in the corresponding major scale (D) and a 3/4 time.
4. I improvised a simple melody in D major, then noticed that it did not quite fit with the preceding part - a much too different 'atmosphere'.
5. Since I rather liked the 'airiness' of my melody, I decided it deserved an independent treatment, yet keeping a short citation of the Kyrie in the opening bars of its introduction - played by flute and English horn.

I may expand it later on.

Quote
I thought the use of the percussion was especially innovative.
The upbeat timpani accompaniment was used by some other composer that I cannot quite identify now, but would not be surprised if he were Ravel, again ;).

Jethro Tull was one of my favorite groups. I stopped buying their records afther this album. Benefit was my favorite record. I think they got too theatrical after Thick as a Brick. Their first four albums are great.

Old Tull, been some years since I've listened to them.   And Ian Anderson; he always seemed like a transplant from the Renaissance.  He was a court jester figure, presenting you with the other way around view of things.  Good 'ol prog-rock; where would we have been without it?  We were certainly too stuck-up to listen to the likes of Black Sabbath, Kiss, A. Cooper, Styx, Foghat, Disco, Queen, Elton, McCartney, etc, or at least I was.  The list of snoozers from the '70s is long indeed. 

Here are a few nuggets from bands that used to like:

I agree.  Phil is okay... even good at times, but Peter had the twisted mind that I kind of like.  Talent and vision will beat just talent anytime.  That is why The Doors were nothing without Jim even though they were very talented as individuals.  They lost the visionary of the group.

And Alice had a persona that was cool.  A game played with the audience to make a show, and at times convey a message.  But he was not the best golfer (though he asked to play past me and my high school friends, and we let him.  We were far worse, and in awe of him).  But the words were cool, even if a bit repetitious within any one song.  Kind of like Zappa meets Rocky Horror, with a bit of bizarre humor and theatrics thrown in.  Like 'Rocky' and 'Zappa' weren't enough bizarre antics and humor.  But Alice was always one of my favorites.  The "Goes to Hell" album is my favorite of his works.

Seeker did you notice anything strange about Greg Lake? Looks like he put on a few hundred pounds. It is interesting to see how the rock stars age. I was a big fan of Emitt Rhodes in 1970. You wouldn't recognize him now. Of course look at Keith Richards, he has looked like he was dying for the past 25 years. Too much heroin and too many blood transfusions.

Yeah, hitting 50 this year, I have learned to not notice certain things in the present that might distort or remind me of how old I am based on my memories.   ;D  But I still can identify with the words no matter how old they are, or how old I am.  And the Stones were always too wasted for me after "Some Girls"...  Not in a drug induced way.  Just less relevant.  But hey, I was young.  What did I know?

Unto Mr. Gordan Matthew Thomas Sumner (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=037uSAIahho). Good friends with JT.

These days, tunes I gravitate to are by this guy's music whose first album, Gravitate, which I accidentally stumbled upon in a place called Napintha along the coast of Big Sur on that beautiful summer day of 1997; Canada's son Jesse Cook (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaznEwvfpxA&feature=related).

THE CABO VERDE MORNA
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/98/LocationCapeVerde.svg/250px-LocationCapeVerde.svg.png)
Quote
The islands of the Cape Verde archipelago were discovered by Italian and Portuguese navigators around 1460. According to Portuguese official records, the first discoveries were made by Genoese-born Antonio de Noli, who was also the first appointed governor of Cape Verde by Portuguese King Afonso V. Other navigators mentioned as contributing with discoveries in the Cape Verde archipelago are Diogo Gomes, Diogo Dias, Diogo Afonso and the Italian Alvise Cadamosto.

Before the arrival of Europeans, the Cape Verde Islands were uninhabited. In 1462, Portuguese settlers arrived at Santiago and founded a settlement they called Ribeira Grande (now called Cidade Velha, to avoid being confused with the town of Ribeira Grande on the Santo Antão island). Ribeira Grande was the first permanent European settlement in the tropics

The morna is Cape Verde's 'blues', obviously influenced by the Portuguese fado as well as by Brazilian samba. Barefoot Cesária Évora is its best-known singer.

There are a few contemporary music that has become both legendary and eternal. Examples of these are that of the song 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' and the legendary Louis Armstrong's What A Wonderful World (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnRqYMTpXHc).

While music such as these stand the test of time on it's own merit, when fused together as more than samplings in a medley, they spring a totally new seperate life eternal unto itself, as the late Israel Kamakawiwi'ole (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ltAGuuru7Q&feature=related)'s rendition. Towards the end of this video, they showed the traditional Samoan burial ritual when they laid him to rest, all 500 pounds of him.  :(

Well, undoubtedly this guy is the one that got me started with the 6-stringer. My all time favorite, James Taylor (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwugjyeSKx4). 'm stoked this guy is still touring.


Shosty will admit to at times subscribing to the formula that negates the value of music because it is popular.  Growing up, I neglected the likes of J.T., who really is an fine artist.  This evokes an older America:

Likewise to the above, if one cuts through the leafy haze, there are many strongly evocative pieces from Neil Young:

One could go on.  The film 'O Brother where art thou',  directed by the Coen Bros., is accompanied by a sound track that offers a nice introduction to American roots music.  Here is Allison Krauss and Gillian Welch

My favorite "band" of the late 60's was called simply, The Band. I last saw them in 1995 just a few
years before Rick Danko passed away. The Band never sought superstardom - they were heavily
rooted in what I call "North Americana" (4 of its members were Canadian.) The sole USA member,
Levon Helm, sang on a few of their bigger hits - The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, and The Weight,
but this one's my favorite...

...'when were all just lonely teenage broncin' bucks with pink carnation and pick-up trucks....and the good ol' boys drank whiskey and rye'....back when homecoming dances were still held in the school's gym, this was still at its purest, an American lovesong (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6uEjifqTaI&feature=related).

If you can still remember Don McLean then you can never forget Vincent (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wrNFDxCRzU&feature=related). They would not listen they did not know how, but perhaps they'll listen now....starry, starry night...

I agree.  Phil is okay... even good at times, but Peter had the twisted mind that I kind of like.  Talent and vision will beat just talent anytime.  That is why The Doors were nothing without Jim even though they were very talented as individuals.  They lost the visionary of the group.

I saw Phil Collins in a very small venue in Ann Arbor (about the size of a movie theater).  He was touring with Earth, Wind & Fire as his back up band.  FANTASTIC!  You could feel the music boucing off your chest!

Funny story about that night is that I saw Bob Seager rumaging through a trash can as he had thrown his ticket away and they wouldn't let him in!  LMAO.

Johndeargreen,
I think the Mustang Sally in the movie the Commitments is the best ever.  Had a big debate with my son as he likes the Otis Redding version better.

Seeker,
I see you're a Seager fan.  Seager was a local in the Detroit area.  I actually went to a high school dance where his band was the entertainment.  Seager had some farm land next to where the Palce is (home of the Pistons).  Some wild azz barn parties went down there.  LOL He just announced he was going on tour this summer.  Just FYI.

Thanks!  I will be looking for the tour dates.  I hope one is close to me.

I remember sitting with Joe Walsh in a park and listening to him play until I couldn't remain vertical... and sitting in the Theatricum Botanicum watching plays sponsored by Will Geer and laughing with him until I soiled myself.  He was a funny and very loving man.  Sigh... I wish there was a YouTube video of those times.

I lost that religion along time ago and glad to be free of it.  In an interview I heard recently, Roger Waters said of the early Floyd that they adopted the psychedelic expression to cover their poor musicianship. 

To Sandro, thanks for the links to the Mediterranean music.  Think I'll follow up. 

And yes, as you are no doubt knowledgeable of C.G. Jung and his works you'll know that for we INTJs, that schizophrenia is in fact a risk.  Jung used to study Schizoids.  It is an old yogic idea, that the sublime moment occurs in the transition between states, and Jung thought schizophrenics caught a glimpse of 'truth' in the transition of identification.

I'm not sure if any of you guys ever related memorable moments in your lives with music. Everytime I travelled anywhere alone, I would take along select music to saturate myself to the new things I am about to see and experience, just to create an association, or a connection if you will to these new places, people, and events to remember by for years to come. Sort of like creating a personal soundtrack, you know.

My first trip to Russia as a WMVM was definitely not an exception. So today, when I hear these songs on the radio, an automatic vivid recollection flashes in my brains.

So bear with me, music I liked at the time and took along with me...if this trip would have had a soundtrack, the credit would look like this...

"Something's Always Wrong" performed by
Toad the Wet Sprocket (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp1ZGW9MdbI&feature=related)

"Prayer For The Dying"  performed by
Seal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Btl5PYdpcNs)

"Drive"  performed by
Incubus (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpwsuhOUAkk)

"Round Here" performed by
Counting Crows (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PAP3kN8J8w&feature=related)

"Lost Cause" performed by
Beck (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iEId2vmb0M)

"Interstate Love Song" performed by
Stone Temple Pilots (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwaiYWOin_M&feature=PlayList&p=543CB6FD8FBCA253&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=12) - especially dedicated to Annechka

"Shooting Stars"  performed by
Bad Company (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wlwOcCRGDg) - (token oldie)

"With Arms Wide Open"
Creed (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99j0zLuNhi8)

"Out Of My Head"  performed by
Fastball (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wd2aeZhu9xY)

"It's Been A While"  performed by
Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVC1iBVnKJk)

Of course, had my wife known where I was drawing my inspirations from during that time, she may have had other ideas. LOL. These songs/albums kept me in control and sane that 14 days in Moscow.

I scrolled through every page of this thread, and I thought I would find more Russian music here. There was some, but not as much as I thought...

In my trips to Russia, I found that I fell in love with Russian Pop Music on the radio. These would be the equivilent of our "Top-40's" Music here in the states. Most of the songs that I liked are from the 2001-2004 era when I was traveling to Russia frequently. I had found some of them on Youtube, and had them bookmarked, but in the years since, many have been removed. I don't even know the names of most of these songs, or even the artist(s) who perform them. "Russian Radio" doesn't babble like our US stations do. Here's a sample:

Without doing a search before answering, do you know the song by Ten Years After named "I'd Love To Change The World?" My guess is that any music listener who is
above age 30 knows this song if they heard it. I was messing around on the guitar and played something that sounded very close to a song I knew existed but I couldn't
even come close to figuring out who sang it, how the singing went, or who wrote it. Finally, I played the intro for a friend over the phone and he said it was by
Ten Years After. I searched it on the net and sure enough, he was correct. And, I was very very close to playing that song by messing around. Since I now know the
song, I've asked some folks at work if they knew the group or the song and I was surprised at how many people couldn't identify the song until they heard it. So,
do you know this song without doing a search?

If you want to hear an entertaining and IMO a funny song, check out Willie Nelson – Ain't Going Down On Brokeback Mountain

I know it word for word... one of my favorites.  Now I have to go put on the CD because I want to hear it.  Us old hippies still listen to this kind of music.  ;)

And no, I don't miss the pops, crackles, and skipping of the albums.  Except on one song by Manfred Mann's Earth Band where I got so used to a small skip that it seems odd when it is not there.

a sideman....  so a few years ago, I spot his name on the credits on a new CD by two guys from

Thank you again.  I have been listening to it, and it reminds me of "Eat a Peach"... (Allman Brothers 1972)  Mixed with a bit of Santana and multinational folk music.  And a blazing violin I can not begin to describe with words.

Ok switching to high octane pure fingers on Strats (Before the age of power chords)? My pick, and in this order...

2. Robin Trower (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtTxmXCuGgw) ( for some of you, you may remember Trower as the lead guitarist for Procol Harum. I actually took my wife on that '06 HOB concert. Yes, she either really love me to stay through it or I was her only ride home, LOL.
3. Eric Johnson (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55nAwmVLQSk&feature=related). Who can forget Cliffs of Dover?
4. Funktwo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjA5faZF1A8). 14 year old Korean boy. With almost 72 million Youtube hits, how can you go wrong? Even my boy JerryC can't command that much buzz...

I'll confess. I did had long silky black hair that went down past my shoulder blades in my 20s. Use to tie it on pony tails when I played B-Ball or played sports. It was a definite chick-magnet, man.

That's the end of the line, we have no significant extant scores of Roman or pre-Christian Greek music, although we know the structure of the latter's modal music and its diatonic scales, later adopted and modified by the Roman church:
Quote
The church modes originate in the 8th or 9th century. The influence of developments in Byzantium, from Jerusalem and Damascus, for instance the works of Saints John of Damascus (d. 749) and Cosmas of Maiouma (Nikodēmos ’Agioreitēs 1836, 1:32–33) (Barton 2009), are still not fully understood, but are clearly an intermediary development between the various developments in Greece and the eventual developments in the western, Roman Catholic, church. The eight-fold division of the Latin modal system, in a four-by-two matrix, was certainly of Eastern provenance, originating probably in Syria or even in Jerusalem, and was transmitted from Byzantine sources to Carolingian practice and theory during the 8th century. However, the earlier Greek model for the Carolingian system was probably ordered like the later Byzantine oktōēchos, that is, with the four principal (authentic) modes first, then the four plagals, whereas the Latin modes were always grouped the other way, with the authentics and plagals paired
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_mode

The Ambrosian hymnody owes its name to St. Ambrose, bishop and patron of Milan (337/340–397 AD) celebrated on 7th December, the day La Scala opens its operatic season. The Father of Church Song is officially credited with the authorhsip of these hymns:

Although I have some doubts that the above examples adhere to the original. Ambrose is considered to have been influenced by Byzantine and Syrian hymns:
Quote
The first actually to compose hymns was St. Hilary, who had spent in Asia Minor some years of exile from his see, and had thus become acquainted with the Syrian and Greek hymns of the Eastern Church. His Liber Hymnorum has not survived.
You may have noticed how my previous example (Ecce quam bonum et jocundum) sounds more Oriental ;).

A seldom dissonant Francis Poulenc in Les animaux modèles (ballet, 1941):


Ya, I agree with you.  Dissonance: it's the sound that sets the fight or flight mechanism into play.  In the hands of a skilled composer it becomes an instrument that complicates a piece, setting the senses on edge.  Most often though it's just the sound and fury, signifying nothing but still stirring up the asinine element, at least until the song is over.

Poulenc is undiscovered territory for me so I appreciated the link.  Some how it made me think of Schumann:

At the end is the famous Traumerei.

Poulenc is undiscovered territory for me so I appreciated the link.  Some how it made me think of Schumann:
Poulenc can be very 'classic' and tonal, when he wants:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1d4UPCHyoy8[/youtube]

Dissonance: it's the sound that sets the fight or flight mechanism into play. In the hands of a skilled composer it becomes an instrument that complicates a piece, setting the senses on edge.
Dissonance has always been used in music, a note extraneous to the current tonal environment creates a temporary tension due to clashing harmonics that is usually resolved later (the sooner, the better IMHO).

The problem with most 20th century classical music is that dissonance became an 'institution' with the Vienna School's (Schoenberg and his pupils Berg and Webern) serial twelve-tone technique (dodecaphony). Occasional tension is stimulating, but constant tension is a pain in the...ear ;).

Shosty does not approve of this statement.  Yes, the 20th century did happen, though hardly know it from the audience response to a 20th century work on the program: clears the house faster than a fire alarm.

I think it fair to say most people still don't get the 20th century composers.  There was a time when, in order to be taken seriously as an intellectual (radical left mind-you) you had to jabber on ambrosially about the New Vienna school, Cage, etc.  Now that most of those people push up the daisies we can take fresh stock of the situation.  I do agree there are a few ear-splitters in the 20th century cannon, Schnitke comes to mind - I'll make him the sacrifice to appease, but there are just far too many great pieces, endorsed by the best musical minds of the time to dismiss Schoenberg et. al as nothing more than musical masturbation. 

I can list many impressive works.  Many of which are not up on YouTube.  It is definitely cerebral, however, and one must be open to a certain unraveling of the mind.  It is no coincidence that Schoenberg is contemporaneous with Dr. Frued.  Perriot Lunaire comes to mind as does a very intriguing operatic work, Ewartung, which I had the pleasure to attend last Summer.  Shosty recommends!

 :thumbsup: :thumbsup:  -- that's two thumbs up!

The opera does not excerpt so well so here is Perriot Lunaire instead:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inrIDGKGyqQ[/youtube]

Speaking of the master, I'll leave Shosty out of the picture for the time being.  But his works were not supposed to be "easy listenin'"  - they were about all the terrible things happening during Soviet times and during WWII.  Crikey.

Anyway, here's Glenn Gould to protect the honor of the New Vienna School and the misunderstandings of incorrigible fuddy-duddies.  ;)

No-no.   Many people - not all people.  Dissonance is acoustical too.  But I think you are opening the dissonance=noise, harmony=music debate.  At a certain level I can relate to that - it only goes so far.   

Supposing one must THINK in order to appreciate a piece of music :-\. You may tell Shosty that I beg to disagree completely with this concept :(.

Sadly, Shosty has encountered this attitude many times before.  Injustice, alas, we philosophers must take as our allotted portion. Of course Shosty would never suggest that all music must be experienced as thought to be enjoyed.  Shiver me timbers!  Rather, it seems most music seems to require the absence of thought to be enjoyed.  Once you start thinking about it, much music reduces to nothing more than histrionic buffooneries.  Shocking that someone can get up on stage and actually act that way.  But music makes its appeal at various levels, and yes the appeal can be intellectual.  Shosty now illustrates with several examples:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jRyTXEkMjQ[/youtube]

Those quartets by Bela are just the coolest.  There is a certain racy element here, but the heart is certainly not bleeding, "Smokin' hot Kovas" do not come to mind, I do not think to raise the earth in a rage.  Shosty thinks of mathematics.

Mozart makes you smarter they say -- I think I know why.  In fact I was tipped off here after reading an interview given by Mitsuko Uchida -- she says that Mozart is often very difficult to play.  It is not so difficult technically.  There is not the incredible note density of Racmaninoff or Alcan, but each not is deliberate -- one rides no wave of emotion as in Brahms or Tchaikovsky for example.  It draws the mind into the equation -- it's contemplative.

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=7K3VLrOjIXU&feature=related[/youtube]

In the day they dismissed old Franz as the "composer of repeated notes".  Some truth to it no doubt.  I wonder if there is a composer with more beautiful harmonies than Franz - there is an emotive element for certain.  But Franz always twists it around the edges and he gives you no straight story -- it is how his music draws you into a mystery that the listener must complete.  He is no tune-smith.  The reason they'll be jabbering about the music of Franz Schubert long after Bon Jovi, The Cure and, yes, even the King himself have all faded into sort of jolly footnote to the age.  Without knowing much about the mechanics of music I nevertheless always find the word architecture coming to mind when listening to Franz.  How does he do it - the heart leads with Franz for certain, but the mind is not far behind.

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=KkqDEh-fXVI&feature=related[/youtube]

What an incredible piece.

Apart from Bartok, whose example I find unappealing, I don't think those pieces by Mozart and Schubert require any intellectual analysis to be enjoyed. Your 'illustration' is 1/3 unconvincing (to me) and 2/3 off the intended mark.

Without knowing much about the mechanics of music I nevertheless always find the word architecture coming to mind when listening to Franz. 
J.S. Bach, and other polyphonic composers, would be more apropos as architects ;). Nevertheless, ANY piece of music - even a pop song - has a structure, which IMO accounts for composers always coming last after all the other artists (poets, painters, sculptors, etc.) to a new expressive territory.

Is this about a RW or for women everywhere? :)

She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child,
But she's always a woman to me

She can lead you to love
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her, as long as it's free
Yeah, she steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

CHORUS:
Oh--she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh--and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

And she'll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me
--Mhmm--

She is frequently kind
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She's nobody's fool
And she can't be convicted
She's earned her decree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me
--Mhmm--
(Billy Joel)

JOHN FIELD
1782-1837
(http://image.listen.com/img/356x237/6/4/9/2/702946_356x237.jpg)

Who comes immediately to mind when one hears the word nocturne? Why, Frédérick Chopin (1819-1849) of course, he wrote scores of them and probably invented the genre, right?

Wrong. The piano nocturne was was invented by this Irish pianist and composer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Field_(composer)), a pupil of Muzio Clementi in London. They both arrived in Saint Petersburg in 1802, where Field decided to stay and remained in Russia until 1831, composing about 20 Nocturnes for piano.

The nocturne is a typically Romantic type of composition. Its intimate nature is, among other things, a result of the fact that the 2 hands play rather close together, mostly in the 3-4 central octaves of the keyboard.

Here's a couple pieces of music I like. The first is new and the kind of music a lot of RW will like. The most beautiful girl I've ever seen play an accordian is at the 1:18 mark in the video. The second video is a few years old and I haven't read the entire thread to learn if someone already put it here. The video shows the very reasons we men go to the FSU which are for family oriented and marriage minded girls.

THANK YOU!!!!  The seductive flute just takes you away, then the voice tugs at your heart, then the whole thing explodes in a wall of emotion and sound.  Tull had a classic/rock fusion that I think only the Moody Blues and Pink Floyd have mastered.  Okay... maybe ELP too.  But Tull is in the top 3 for me.

anyone listen to the Zappa?

A bit late I know (about a year), but I hadn't noticed this thread 'til now.
 
Addressing the question, the answer is 'yes', - since 1967!
 
Am in the audience of 'Ahead of their Time' (and part Weasels Ripped My Flesh).
 
Once had a drink with Jimmy Carl Black (the injun of the group) after a gig in my home city (Newcastle upon Tyne)
 
Favourite album (or do I mean most played?) - probably Grand Wazoo.   But I have a great fondness for Uncle Meat.
Favourite single (famously No.1 in Norway where they probably didn't understand the lyrics) - Bobby Brown
To be played at my funeral - Watermelon in Easter Hay

Curiously, I know another American (FLA as it happens - not on this board) who's big on Tull.  They never really did it for me, possibly because I never warmed to Anderson as a character.
 
The Moodies and Floyd on the other hand are gods in the community!

Moodies are god, and Floyd is the bringer of truth to the common man.  But my first concert was Tull (72-73? Thick as a brick was what hooked me)... and the first for my daughter (with me) ummmmmmmm  let's just say a few years later.  I even sat and talked with Ian, as he he hit on my daughter, thinking she was my wife.  Freaky memories!

Great thread 2012... something I can sink my teeth into....

Music for many reasons is a wonderful way to connect your soul to life's realities, it's an escape from the day to day issues that we all face, it's also a way to voyage outside of your body or at times it's simply a way to fend off the stress or simply compliment your mood.... needless to say, music is important or at least to me it is.

Too many genre's and artists to list as one's to listen to but here's a jumping point...


Some may say electronic music is nothing more then loud noises fused together or it's just sampling of real artists... you sorry fools. Electronic music is not only seriously complicated to create but it's also euphoric, uplifting and spiritual. Here's a taste of some quality beats....

Beautiful lyric's and melody, a spiritual journey if you will :
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8X93-MC1R9Q[/youtube]

The Dutch master at his best... soft, supple & moving

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/user/midnightsoltace#p/c/1A57E0F5116EF7BE/0/TxvpctgU_s8[/youtube]

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/user/midnightsoltace#p/c/1A57E0F5116EF7BE/40/u0VabbGdbvg[/youtube]


So, some of us may not be into the beats /electronic scene.. fair enough. Here's a few to rock out to...

Canadian rock legends and one of the most over looked rock groups of present day:
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jubLToRd53E[/youtube]

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ojv5oV9Yrc[/youtube]

Great group nd one of the best live performances you can see... and they do a great job of covering the odd classic or two :

for those of you who still dig the classic rock scene... they are labled as classic for a reason....

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_nwbTeIN4Y[/youtube]


Legends who's legacy will last longer then our planet :
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wtiNzci1Wc[/youtube]


A little of the softer side is what suits some of us...

Here's a song that could bring the even the most steel hearted to a state of tears. I prefer a women's voice for this song but hearing Chris take this piece of musical perfection on garnered my respect for his ever changing musical portfolio :
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pd2emzFAqv8[/youtube]

A soft classical classic :
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2cFEHM9yMw[/youtube]



Speaking of soft music... sometimes a woman's voice and a tale of love and sorrow just sticks to your soul.

A little Sarah would all do us well :
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1GmxMTwUgs[/youtube]

I grew up in the streets and some of us find our poetry written on those streets. I don't take many people here to be hip/hop fans so I'll that genre off of here but I would be curious to see  who else enjoys some quality rhymes and beats. For me there is no better then Notorious BIG or Methodman and Big L.

Thank you.  And damn you at the same time.  I was ready for bed, now I want to hear more.  These are two of my favorites.

So I guess I will end with I thank you.   :)

Well, the history of music is replete with examples of 'inspirations' - when not outright 'borrowings' - until the 1886 Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works acquired international validity.

In the 1700s music was rarely printed, and mostly hand-copied with limited circulation. Having one's work 'cited' by another composer could also be form of explicit/implicit homage, as is assumed in the case of J.S. Bach's several Concertos for Harpsichords, liberally dipping into Vivaldi's Estro Armonico ;).

Vivaldi was also heavily cited by G.F. Händel in the famous Hallelujah of his Messiah oratorio (1742), strongly reminiscent of the former's Gloria (RV 589, circa 1720):

In his turn, Vivaldi borrowed heavily for his Gloria - and a previous one (RV 588) - from a similar work by an earlier but much lesser known Venetian composer, Giovanni Maria Ruggieri:
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVbomXH1pEc[/youtube]

This beautiful part of Vivaldi's Gloria, however, is probably his own original:

It has all been said, sung, or played before.  That is the beauty of it all.  And why I appreciate the classically trained 'modern' artists.

Lennon said it well... in a far simpler song.

Una serata a San Cristoforo sul Naviglio
(An evening at St. Christopher on the Canal)
Friday 26th June, 2010

A few days ago I was mentioning Vivaldi's Gloria, and chance dictated I would be hearing it again this past evening during a performance at St. Christopher's:

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/53/Milano_sancristoforo_facciata.jpg/450px-Milano_sancristoforo_facciata.jpg)(http://www.globopix.net/photosharing/lombardia/milano_IT01MI089.jpg)

St. Christopher's is actually two small churches stuck together, or rather a Romanic church rebuilt in the XIIIth century (left side in the above photo), and a Ducal chapel erected in the XVth century on popular demand after the 1399 pestilence that killed 20,000 ended abruptly - St. Christopher is one of the 14 santi ausiliatori (succouring saints, see http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santi_ausiliatori for a full list) and patron of the sick in general and appestati (pestilence stricken) in particular, later of drivers as well and travellers in general ;).
(http://www.naviglilombardi.it/Immagini/Img_Sito/San%20Cristoforo%20interno.jpg)
(stained glass window in RH nave)

This 'mongrel' church has an unusual plan: two naves, but only one apse - in its older part:
(http://www.visitamilano.it/turismo/web/imgview.jsp?id=1394&v=lr)
(Apse in LH nave)

St. Christopher's is very small, and can accomodate only about 100 people. The concert also included Baroque pieces by Giovan Battista Sammartini, Giovanni Battista Lampugnani, J.S. Bach (Jesus bleibet), W.A. Mozart (Ave Verum) and a piece by Bruno Maderna (1920–1973) - my photo shows his widow in the audience congratulating the 1st violin of the orchestra. The other photo shows the full ensemble - choir and orchestra.

It was rather curious hearing two pieces (Jesus bleibet and Ave Verum) that my choir had performed a cappella in the same place on a cold 15th December night 4 years ago, with an audience of only some 20 people :(. Tonight, the church was packed, orchestras draw more crowds :D.

this is a music thread brad.. respond with music not with malinformed propaganda.. but I am quite sure you will not be able to find even one song that glorifies the old cuba or the embargo etc..

and.. Che was Robin Hood.. killed by the henchmen of the evil empire.. if you have any doubt.. ask the men of the Bay of Pigs.. Playa Giron

I am not for the embargo, I am against it.  the best way to defeat communism is to show people what they are missing, therefore trading with them would help them.  Che Guevara Robin Hood??  hardly.

Don't you think Elvis is the perfect symbol of America?  Blessed with talent, beauty, youth, humility, and sincerity, yet, culminating in tragedy, bloat, cynicism and loneliness.
Title: Re: Music I love
Post by: Boethius on July 07, 2010, 09:20:05 PM
Okay, on a different note.  This song always makes me want to cry, because I think about the loss of life.  The photo is of Nikolai Gumilyov his then wife, Anna Akhmatova, and their son.  Gumilyov was a Russian officer during WWI.  

Gumilyov had nothing but contempt for the Bolsheviks, which he did not hide, and eventually, he was shot by them.  His son with Akhmatova was also jailed for a large part of his youth, and she made many compromises, including writing glowing poetry about Stalin, to secure her son's release.  She and her son, however, were largely estranged.

I like this one.  My parents were big Elvis fans, we always had his records playing in the house.   Odd, because they're more from the Beatles' generation,  Anyway, this one has lots of eye candy, too  -

Which is actually an Italian song from 1963, composed and performed by Pino Donaggio:
[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWVp_ox0V_s[/youtube]
Quote
Born in Burano (an island of Venice), into a family of musicians, Donaggio began studying violin at the age of ten, first at the Benedetto Marcello conservatory[1] in Venice, followed by the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan. At the age of 14, he made his solo debut in a Vivaldi concert for Italian radio, then went on to play for both the I Solisti Veneti and the Solisti di Milano. The discovery of rock and roll during the summer of 1959 ended Donaggio's classical career when he made his singing debut with Paul Anka. He then began to write his own songs and established himself as one of Italy's prominent singer-songwriters. He took part in the Sanremo Festival with "Come sinfonia" (1961) and had a string of successes including "Il cane di stoffa". However, his greatest hit was the 1963 hit "Io che non vivo", which sold 80 million records worldwide and was performed most popularly in English as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" by Dusty Springfield and Elvis Presley.

His first film score was the British/Italian horror film Don't Look Now. Since then he has worked on many films, and composed music for several more, including: Dario Argento's Trauma and Due occhi diabolici. He works regularly with US director Brian De Palma, scoring De Palma's Carrie (1976), Home Movies (1979), Dressed to Kill (1980), Blow Out (1981), Body Double (1984), and Raising Cain (1992).
His two other songs quoted above:

On a personal, irrelevant note, his brother-in-law was the last manager I had in my very first job back in 1964 (below at left), occasionally playing the piano in his early group before finally devoting himself to a career in industrial chemistry -  sitting at his desk in our research lab (below at right) :D.

Yeah. Steve Perry (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wU_XCpC6HdE) is awesome. Always liked his unique voice. I never thought Journey can ever be what they were when he left. Arnel Pineda (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVobtub--Wg&feature=related), who is actually Manny Pacquiao when he's not doing something silly like boxing, actually comes very close to the sound of Perry. But with him singing despite sounding a bit like Steve Perry, it's tough to watch as you almost just want to start cracking up...Something's wrong with the picture, man.

But let me give kudos to my favorite female artists I liked over the years. Not necessarily in the order of preference.

Norah Jones (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9__6TAVTwtk), Maria Muldaur (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3tHYb4_bAg), Tori Amos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8ljHOSqc4A), Natalie Merchant (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqZ7HaE5KWU), Sarah Mclachlan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWxzM9_gEo0&feature=avmsc2), Rickie Lee Jones (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrLgvQzzzqE), Sarah Brightman (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_CeKigTTmc&feature=related), Phoebe Snow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OxTVxGhHFM), Bonnie Raitt (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMU6J-MWT8E), Sam Brown (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09A5qds1Zss).

Sam Brown's performance on 'Concert for George', which I thought was a show stealer, was cut when the CD was released. Too bad.

In Kyiv, we had a neighbour who, when drunk, would go out on the balcony and sing this song.  We didn't know his name, as his nickname was "Cheremshyna".

The baritone in the above clip is Vasily Gerello, Ukrainian by birth, though his Grandfather was Italian.  So, in honour of his mixed Italian/Slavic roots, I dedicate the following piece to Sandro -

Nice voice, although I think that Cheremshyna is more impressive in the version I heard in the 1950s sung by a bass whose name I forgot - maybe Dmitri Gnatyuk:

Thank you Catherine, thoughtful of you :D. At La Scala most baritone roles are usually given to our Renato Bruson, who has a deeper tessitura:

Yes, great voice, a very deep baritone that sounds much like a bass. The balalaika/accordion accompaniment also creates a more 'traditionally Russian' atmosphere :D.

Sculpto,

 This will date me, but at 60 I really don't care anymore...  I was a freshman at Oregon State when a guy
popped into my dorm room and asked if I wanted to go to the gym for a concert. This was November 1968,
pre-Woodstock. Cost three dollars to get in. Sat maybe 15 feet from the stage on the gym floor, and enjoyed
a 2 hour show by Jerry and the boys...

 American Beauty and Workingman's Dead are my two favorites.

Yes, as did the Dylan song Sculpto posted... on of my favorite Dylan songs, and I love all of them.


And I was impressed how UKJ stayed true to the original.  Very nice!  Thanks.

Seeker,

I just love the old school music  8)  I like all types of music but music from now can't beat old school. Most of it is before my time but my appreciation is nevertheless still great. I have another tribute and this time to Cat Stevens 'Wild World' by Mr.Big: BOTH ROCK!!!   :hipdude:

Very cool!  That was a great cover.

I agree with you about the old school music.  Only difference is I remember it being 'new' and played on AM radio while laying on the beach as a kid.  In part, it shaped who I am today. 

It makes me glad to know it continues on.

I was born in '78 and missed all the great heroes: Deep Purple, Jimmy Hendrix, De Doors, T-Rex, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, and many more. I did a lot o catching up. For instance, it was a surprise to me that Iron Maiden was influenced by Deep Purple. They sound so much alike.

Of course i have a lot of disco music for my parents loved disco. I have been trying to reminisce music of my youth and before...buying and downloading whatever I can get my hands on. I-tunes has helped out a lot for it is easy to search for the original versions. If you have some suggestions I will check it out.

I love everyone you mentioned (except Iron Maiden... saw them when they were starting out in a club on Sunset (I think), and they sucked at the time) but my favorites will always be:

Moody Blues
The Doors
Jethro Tull
Pink Floyd
Bob Dylan

Followed by dozens of others, including some more 'modern'.  Music is great the way it transcends time and generations.

Sandro, is he still alive? (Considering he has been born in 1920... I'm afraid not  :'( ).

But seems Carosone's "Americano" returns each 10 years - here's the previous incarnation, done by Lou Bega:

Sandro, is he still alive? (Considering he has been born in 1920... I'm afraid not  :'( ).
He passed away in 2001, after retiring in 1960 at the top of his popularity - he was rightly afraid that his type of music would wane very rapidly with the arrival of rock'n'roll and similar - and staged a comeback in 1975, performing in occasional live concerts until the late 1990s.

Quote
Beginnings
Carosone was born in Naples. He studied piano at his hometown's Conservatory and obtained his diploma in 1937, when he was just 17. He soon signed a contract as a band leader for a tour of Africa. After that job, he ended up in Addis Ababa working as a pianoplayer. In a short while he became quite famous there and had several gigs as band leader. He returned to Italy only in 1946, after the end of World War II.

Those ten years spent abroad had exposed him to new rhythms and new sounds, but, in spite of his international success, Carosone was a stranger to the Italian audience. He had to start his career afresh, playing the piano in some small dance-hall bands.

Boston, Journey, Styx, Foreigner, Triumph, Starship (reborn), Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult, and even KISS (not much musically, but hellaciously killer concerts, saw a show on their '96 reunion tour in their home town of NYC at Madison Square Garden..it was grrrrreat!) love that 70's power rock. I never was much of a metal head or grunge fan, but I basically learned to play guitar from learning their leads and progressions note for note.

You're probably right, 3T....

....along with Gin Blossoms, Oasis, GooGoo Dolls, Smasking Pumpkins, Train, Soungarden, and I hate to say this..Creed.

Too bad, especially for SG and Creed.

I used to wonder why a band like Boston never followed up with an album like the one they hit big on before, and it just seemed like they just disappeared. But came to find out later on that it was their label that kept them from releasing materials they wanted to release because they weren't commercial enough...

You sure know your music! Song from Extreme is a real classic. These guys have been really underrated. Got their albums
The famous Red Hot Chilli Peppers! Big fan of them! Flea is their talisman, that guy is truly incredible.

Soundtracks seem to bring the best out of all artists involved. I tried looking for Batman Forever soundtrack by Smashing Pumpkins but could only retrieve this 3rd version, unworthy of the band.

Yeah 3T...Flea's a huge Laker fan. Ran into him during one of the games in the hallway and he's one of the coolest khat around these parts.

Speaking of Extreme, like Nirvana/Cobain's groove, that song is a half step at Eb. I have no problem tuning down the 6-stringers and play that song note for note but I can never hit the vocal pitch. If you listen to Cobain's works, you'll recognize that step down pitch. Much too tough for me.  :-[

Extreme II: one more tune I like that was a soundtrack is this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AC3GBjkXeB4&feature=related). This always seem to energize me and

"Dani California"

Getting born in the state of Mississippi
Papa was a copper and mama was a hippie
In Alabama she would swing a hammer
Price you gotta pay when you break the panorama
She never knew that there was anything more than poor
What in the world does your company take me for

Black bandanna, sweet Louisiana
robbin' on a bank in the state of Indiana
She's a runner, rebel and a stunner
On her merry way sayin; baby whatcha gonna
Lookin' down the barrel of a hot metal .45
Just another way to survive

California rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest
YEAH, YEAH

She's a lover baby and a fighter
Shoulda seen it coming when it got a little brighter
With a name like Dani California
The day was gonna come when I was gonna mourn ya
A little loaded, she was stealing another breath
I love my baby to death

California rest in peace
Simultaneous release
California show your teeth
She's my priestess, I'm your priest
YEAH, YEAH

Who knew the other side of you?
Who knew that others died to prove
Too true to say good bye to you
Too true, too sad sad sad..

Push the fader gifted animator
One for the now and eleven for the later

Never made it up to Minnesota
North Dakota man was a gunnin' for the quota

Down in the badlands she was savin' the best for last
It only hurts when I laugh
Gone too fast..

California rest in peace
Simultaneous release,
California show your teeth,
She's my priestess, I'm your priest
YEAH, YEAH
California rest in peace
Simultaneous release,
California show your teeth,
She's my priestess, I'm your priest
YEAH, YEAH

(WTF is he talking about?)

California seems to be a reoccurring theme in some of their songs. 'Under the Bridge' and 'Cali fornication' are the others I know of supporting this fact. When I see Anthony I will ask.
Title: Re: Music I love

SC's cred tags Dani Gal as a personification of an average American PYT who finds (mostly losts) her way in La-La-Land with lovely dreams of grandeur in making it big. 

Dani California are compiled sagas of the songwriter's girlfriends past, so the rumor goes, that generally 'fit' the mold of a Dani Gal...

'Dani' crossed-over many of the band's tunes, including 'Californication'.
Title: Re: Music I love

Californication lyrics
Songwriters: Balzary, Michael Peter; Frusciante, John; Smith, Chad; Kiedis, Anthony;

Psychic spies from China
Try to steal your mind elation
Little girls from Sweden
Dream of silver screen quotations
And if you want these kind of dreams
It's Californication

Its the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the east
At least it settles in a final location
Its understood that Hollywood
Sells Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the signs of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or is it war your waging

First born unicorn
Hard core, soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Cailfornication

Marry me girl be the fairy to my world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard
Its Californication

Space may be the final frontier
But its made in a Hollywood basement
And Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderons not far away
Its Californication

Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population
Well, everybodys been there
And I dont mean on vacation

First born unicorn
Hard core, soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Cailfornication

Dream of Cailfornication
Dream of Cailfornication

Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girls guitar
They are just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldnt save the world
From Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Sicker then the rest, there is no test
But this is what you're craving

First born unicorn
Hard core, soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Cailfornication

Dream of Cailfornication
Dream of Cailfornication

This song is a total and utter denunciation of the American way of life as presented and sold by Hollywood.

Magyar Rapszódiák
(Hungarian Rhapsodies)

Franz Liszt composed 19 piano solo pieces based on Hungarian folk themes during 1846-1853, which can be rightfully expected of a Hungarian composer. Here are a couple of samples played by Vladimir Horowitz:

[youtube=325,250]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHGnYQgLLzc[/youtube] [youtube=325,250]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5JX_Xe8TYo[/youtube]

Not really surprising that a German like Johannes Brahms, born 22 years later in distant Hamburg but living in Vienna for a large part of his life, should also be fascinated by this genre and produce 21 Ungarische Tänze, for piano solo, 4-hand piano, various other instruments and also orchestra, that to our unschooled ear sound more Hungarian than Liszt's :D:

In this Big Star cover, Elliot Smith sings about love at the age of 13. What a tragic age to find love...I mean, she's not even 14! (or maybe he's 13 and she's 14...which would be ok).

MUSICAL ODDITIES
Music & Astrology

Gustav Holst (born Gustavus Theodor von Holst in Gloucestershire, 1874–1934) was an English composer of Swedish extraction (by way of Latvia and Russia), looking like a cross between Woody Allen and Michael Caine ;D:

(http://theperfectsilence.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/holst.jpg)


He is most famous for his orchestral suite The Planets, in 7 movements:

1. Mars, the Bringer of War
2. Venus, the Bringer of Peace
3. Mercury, the Winged Messenger
4. Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
5. Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
6. Uranus, the Magician
7. Neptune, the Mystic

As The Dean said, Feminist beware! Инь-Ян. Пофиг. 2010 (реж. Сергей Солодкий) HD хороший звук (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-Pl7IkmrIg). The ending is pretty funny!

The blonde girl in the video is the protoype gal that gave me the incentive to go out and play everyday when I was single knowing if I didn't, then someone else will instead of me...Always better be me, right?! An attitude many of our boyz should never leave home without.

This thread has been dormant for a while, so I thought I'dd add a new angle ;), starting with two contributions by Arcangelo Corelli (1653–1713):

...and the Adagio from his Concerto Grosso Op.6 No. 8
("Christmas Concerto"
).

Peter Weir used many classical pieces in his Master and Commander (2003), including works by:

Luigi Boccherini (1743–1805) and Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741):

Opera "A Life for the Tsar" or "Ivan Susanin" by Mikhail Glinka. The clip is Act 2. Poland - Polish nobles celebrate and look forward to defeat the Russian Army and Moscow. A messenger brings news that the contract (by Poland) army has been defeated by the Russian Army and the Polish detached force near Moscow has been besieged as well.  Poles vow to take vengeance on the Russian Army and overthrow the Tsar Mikhail Romanov.

I like Glinka's operas. I think you can find it on CD in the music stores.

Lily, below is a link to mp3 files of the opera

Lily, you are welcome.

One of my favorite romances by M. Glinka to words from E. Baratynsky performed by Galina Vishnevskaya

(Don’t temp me with return of your tenderness needlessly.  All the temptations of the past days are alien to a disillusioned once.  I don’t believe in assurances, I don’t believe in love, and I cannot fall into dreams that betrayed me once  again.  Don’t multiply my blind anguish; don’t mention a word about the past.  Caring friend, don’t disturb the sick one in his drowsiness. I’m sleeping, and my sleepiness is sweet to me. Forget the past dreams; otherwise you will awake not the love but only anxiety inside of me)

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA0vW9cNsgE[/youtube]

Не искушай меня без нужды
Возвратом нежности твоей;
Разочарованному чужды
Все обольщенья прежних дней!

Уж я не верю увереньям,
Уж я не верую В любовь
И не могу предаться вновь
Раз изменившим сновиденьям!

Слепой тоски моей не множь,
Не заводи о прежнем слова
И, друг заботливый, больного
В его дремоте не тревожь!

Я сплю, мне сладко усыпленье;
Забудь бывалые мечты:
В душе моей одно волненье,
А не любовь пробудишь ты.

The lyrics 'sounded' like Latin but rather obscure and unfamiliar, and in effect they aren't ;):
Quote
Era - Ameno
Music Video + Lyrics
Language = Pseudo-Latin
Country: France, Ariege departement
Places: memorial monument in "The field of the burned" below the castle Montsegur.
Montsegur in SW Fance is where the local Cathars made their last stand in 1244 before being defeated by royal French troops, who subsequently burned all the survivors at the foot of the mountain. The operation was towards the conclusion of the Albigensian Crusade, a military campaign launched in 1209 at the instigation of Pope Innocent III to eliminate the Cathar heresy in Languedoc, and eventually concluded in 1255.
(http://www.nightvisionproductions.com/WordPress/wp-content/uploads/montsegur.jpg)
The above ruins date from a later period. Montsegur is one of the many places associated with the legend of the Holy Grail. The 'old' style you hint at is Gregorian chant ;).

A similar mixture is Carl Orff's cantata Carmina Burana, composed in 1935-1936 and based on 24 of the poems found in the medieval collection Cantiones profanæ cantoribus et choris cantandæ comitantibus instrumentis atque imaginibus magicis ("Songs of Beuern: secular songs for singers and choruses to be sung together with instruments and magic images."). Its opening piece:

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HMQOX3h7ZI&feature=related[/youtube]

The main language of the poems is Latin. A few are in German or are macaronic, i.e. mixtures of Latin and a vernacular - either German or French.

Burana/Beuern is Benediktbeuern in Bavaria, home of a famous monastery formerly belonging to the Benedictine Order, founded in about 739.

Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor is a soundtrack favourite, it was used in some 40 movies (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0016846/filmoyear), the first having been Orson Welles's Le procès (The Trial, 1962, from Kafka's novel).

Paganini was a virtuoso himself, and his works are quite difficult to master.
Niccolò Paganini (1782–1840) had exceptionally long fingers and was capable of playing three octaves across the four violin strings in a single handspan, a feat that is still considered almost impossible by today's standards. He also developed a novel left-hand technique of string plucking, and his astonishing performances led many to believe that he had sold his soul to the Devil :D (http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=7115856528082343477&hl=en-GB#). His rondò La campanella (the little bell) is often offered as an encore by concert violinists, here played on Paganini's own Guarnieri violin, il Cannone (the cannon):

Wow, loved the fireworks at the end of O Fortuna!!

I am extremely familiar with this piece. My two brothers and I were part of the choral in 1976 who sang this the first time in Puerto Rico. I learned a lot about it from the Maestro Sergei Rainis, a Yugoslav who tried to speak Spanish.  :D

It came as a shock to me when Rainis started explaining the parts. Boy, those monks were really naughty. Deflowering geese (virgins) and other naughty stuff which I will omit.

Still, one of the most powerful pieces ever heard.

Thanks Sandro.

Carmina Burana is the first of the Trionfi trilogy by Carl Orff, which also includes the lesser known Trionfo di Afrodite (Triumph of Aphrodite) and Catulli Carmina (Catullus's Poems), both with lyrics in Latin:

Carl Orff is also remembered for his innovative work in musical pedagogy, Schulwerk (School Work), a.k.a. Musik für Kinder (Music for Children).

I like all of Andrew Llyod Webber's work, especially this classic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkje4FiH9Qc).

Ted Neely and Carl Anderson, not to mention Yvonne Elliman, were just awesome in their respective roles in this play. I turned my wife to this after she had experienced Phantom, Lion King, Chicago, Dirty Dancing, etc...and she had since ordered a DVD from Amazon. She must've watched it a thousand times with the subtitles on and had been signing the songs ad nauseum. LOL. Too bad I've never seen it performed 'live'.

Moreover, consider that this was done back in 1973, I think the dance composition, choreography and cinematography was way ahead of it's time.

I especially liked the  King Herod (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK4VImbHxAc&feature=related) and Simon Zealotes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPq_914s2Jw) segments on this musical. Very entertaining...

As you may know, an annual music festival in Austin, Texas called "South by Southwest" has become one of the premier showcases in the world for many musical acts encompassing many different musical genres.

What you may not know is that these groups are encouraged to release one song each for widespread and free distribution..and you can download many gigabytes of this music to explore and perhaps to find new favorites you never knew existed.

The best place I have found to gain access to these downloads is at http://sites.google.com/site/sxswtorrent/

There, you can get collections ranging back to 2005. The 2011 edition will be available in about two months. (And, if you can possibly be in Austin for it, there are many hundreds of bands appearing all over town--quite fitting for a city that bills itself as the "live music capital." The 2010 collection alone is about 5.3 gigabytes, to give you an idea of its scope.

I do hope you will find some new favorites of your own in this immense collection!

Notice that it does NOT contain the expected 'www.YouTube.com' followed by the cryptic code leading to the specific video. While true that if you click on that code it LEADS you to the YouTube site - the syntax of the URL you used is NOT for embedded videos. To embed them, simply find the correct URL from the YouTube site and place THAT code in between the YouTube tag, so for that link above, it would look like this:

ISRAELI FOLK SONG
Back in 1971 I heard on BBC TV Erev shel shoshanim (Evening of Roses), a lovely folk song from Israel sung by Nana Mouskouri and Mike Brant:

MOZART'S MILANESE MOTET

Young Mozart visited Milan 3 times:
Quote
In Milan, Mozart wrote the opera Mitridate, re di Ponto (1770), which was performed with success. This led to further opera commissions. He returned with his father later twice to Milan (August–December 1771; October 1772 – March 1773) for the composition and premieres of Ascanio in Alba (1771) and Lucio Silla (1772). Leopold hoped these visits would result in a professional appointment for his son in Italy, but these hopes were never fulfilled. Toward the end of the final Italian journey, Mozart wrote the first of his works to be still widely performed today, the solo motet Exsultate, jubilate, K. 165.

Tonight I had the opportunity of hearing his motet performed in our Romanic church of San Cristoforo (http://www.russianwomendiscussion.com/index.php?topic=9589.msg233189#msg233189) . Here are the last 2 parts (Tu virginum corona and Alleluia) of this 4-part motet:

Yeah, that was great, too! Haley was just versatile cause she went from country to Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga to Led Zeppelin...
 
My top 2 for Haley was BLUE (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYdIcmbhcoc) and The House of the Rising Sun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=035GStnLOaI).
 
Too bad my guy Randy gave her the hardest time the entire competition....

How about some of your own? At times you will feel that adults should be able to eat their young.  Most of the time, however, they are a great source of joy - my greatest source.

Lord only knows how badly I would love the right now Gator. But to have one at this time would be extremely selfish of me. Nat need to establish her as her own person and identity first and foremost, more especially because of our age gap. That gift will come in due time. She will let me know. She's very close. It’s what’s right for both of us and for each other. Heaven can wait.

Anyway…music I love. Tonight’s SYTYCD’s performance by Melanie (my vote for the best dancer. This gal is awesome) & Neal to Bonnie Tyler’s

FESTIVAL MILANO ARTEMUSICA
http://www.lacappellamusicale.com/mam2011.htm

In the summertime our concert season is in recess, but fortunately some initiatives relieve the paucity of available musical offerings, like the above Festival staged from July 20th to Ausust 29th with top-rate international performers of ancient music (Middle Ages to Baroque mostly) - for a paltry €10 admission ticket.

This coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday Gustav Leonhardt will offer recitals of German, French and Italian harpsichord music, a juicy occasion that I shall not miss :D.   

Tonight I had the opportunity of attending the performance of the Tallis Scholars, a fantastic British a cappella choir of 10 professional singers that filled the spaces of our Basilica di Santa Maria della Passione, a church just next Milan's Conservatory of Music. Here is a piece they sang:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn39RzlhSao[/youtube]

They specialise in Renaissance music, but also offer modern pieces like the Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen by Estonian Arvo Pärt (1935):

Notice the influence of Orthodox Church choirs in the bass part of this piece.

I am jealous.  Love the harpsichord.  I attended a small concert in Dnepropetrovsk with what appeared to be an antique harpsichord.  No one knew enough English to answer my question about its age (or maybe they just had me on ignore).   You called it "harpsichord music."  I believe the harpsichord works on many sweet compositions, not just those composed for the harpsichord.

You called it "harpsichord music."  I believe the harpsichord works on many sweet compositions, not just those composed for the harpsichord.
Meaning music originally written for the harpsichord ;), a keyboard instrument where strings are 'plucked' - much like a guitar's - hence its limited dynamics.
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/1d/HarpsichordMechanism-EN.svg/800px-HarpsichordMechanism-EN.svg.png)

The first keyboard instrument where strings were struck by 'hammers' rather than plucked was the fortepiano (the forerunner of modern pianoforti - pianos), invented by harpsichord maker Bartolomeo Cristofori in Florence around 1700. The first reliable record of a fortepiano appears in the inventory of the Medici family (who were Cristofori's patrons), dated 1700. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortepiano).

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/15/Zumpe_english_single_square_action.svg/350px-Zumpe_english_single_square_action.svg.png)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/4e/FortepianoByMcNultyAfterWalter1805.jpg/250px-FortepianoByMcNultyAfterWalter1805.jpg)

The names themselves (fortepiano/pianoforte) mean loud/soft in Italian, i.e. highlight the more powerful dynamics produced than in plucked keyboard instruments. The fortepiano was an instrument accepted by composers only after about 1750, famously criticized by Johann Sebastian Bach around 1736 although he changed his mind later in 1747.

Most of J.S. Bach keyboard works were written either for the organ or the harpsichord, but since the mid 1850s many performers started playing the latter on the piano. In a way, it's like playing a piece for classical guitar on a Fender ;). Harpsichord music is ''denser' than piano music, i.e. consists of a myriad of rapidly alternating short notes (to overcome its dynamic limitations).

You can detected the transition in Mozart's keyboard works, written for the fortepiano but still showing typical harpsichord passages.

...the best laid plans... :-\

Yesterday I was chagrined to read in our local newspaper that 2 of Leonhardt's 3 concerts were already sold out :(. I hastened to the website were tickets were sold, and was able to buy one of the 3 last available tickets to tonight's concert of French music - the least appealing to me since French baroque music is often rather 'frilly', i.e. with too much ornamentation for my personal taste.
(http://www.brightcecilia.net/gallery2/d/604-2/Gustav+Leonhardt.jpg)
Gustav Leonhardt is a sprightly 83 y.r. old that did not seem affected by Milan's oppressive 30°C+ heat, although his harpsichord was and he had to stop for a couple of minutes in mid-concert to retune it to his satisfaction. Here are two of the  pieces he played flawlessly, La D'Aubonne and La Saincy (the latter at 7'32" sounds rather modern ;)) by Antoine Forqueray (1671–1745):

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKAPg_-MT6Q[/youtube]

One of the reasons why tickets were sold out was probably due to the fact that these concerts were to be performed in churches with a rather limited capacity - about 100 seats. The first in San Sepolcro, next to the Biblioteca/Pinacoteca Ambrosiana:

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/64/Chiesa_di_San_Sepolcro_a_Milano_facciata_di_tre_quarti.jpg/180px-Chiesa_di_San_Sepolcro_a_Milano_facciata_di_tre_quarti.jpg) (http://mw2.google.com/mw-panoramio/photos/small/50001129.jpg)

One of the Biblioteca Ambrosiana proudest exhibits is Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Atlanticus, the largest collection of Leonardo’s papers ever assembled and named that way for its size, similar to that of an Atlas. Another, more curious exhibit is a transparent reliquary containing a lock of Lucrezia Borgia's fair hair :D.

Both buildings are located in the small, central Piazza San Sepolcro, less than 1 Km from our Duomo in an area that was populated by Milan's specialised craftsmen as still witnessed by its street names: via Orefici (goldsmiths), via Armorari (armourers), via Spadari (swordsmiths), via Speronari (spur makers), etc. The piazza was also famous as the birthplace of Fascism, since in March 1919 Mussolini held there a meeting and read his Manifesto dei Fasci italiani di combattimento. Being a Sansepolcrista, i.e. an early-date Fascist, was considered a rare and honourable distinction then :(. 

The other sold-out concert will be tomorrow night in the choir of nearby San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, built in 1503 as a female convent of the Benedictines and beautifully frescoed by Bernardino Luini (c. 1480/82-1532), a North Italian painter from Leonardo's circle:
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/fa/Smaurizioinside.jpg/250px-Smaurizioinside.jpg)

For more than 20 years since the mid 1970s they staged there in spring and autumn Musica e Poesia a San Maurizio, poetry readings and ancient music performances that I attended often.

Sandro,
 
My sympathy that you could obtain a ticket for only one harpsichord concert.  If you left Italy and moved to the South, you would also have trouble attending a harpsichord concert ( for a different reason, however).  Not to be sad because there would be plenty of other music concerts.

I don't mind some occasional country music - say 2 or 3 songs, after that they become rather monotonous for me, and I find the Hawaiian guitar grating after a while - after all, that's where R'n'R started from, mixed with black blues music ;D.

IINM, its origins can be traced to Irish music - reels for the fast pieces and airs for the slow ones ::).

Track 2
Quite a different musical atmosphere compared to the other piece - somewhat more 'domesticated', too? - showing what change a string accompaniment can produce ;).

Sandro,
 
Even though math was my best subject in school, I am too weakly equipped to even discuss much less debate the physical science of music.  However, I grew up in the South a long time ago, so I can comment as a personal observer who enjoyed R'n'R even though I can not carry a tune.  I admit that I am biased because of many personal discoveries made while R'n'R was in the background.     
 
Based on what I observed,  I assert that country music had little influence on  rock n' roll.  Long before there was country music, the white farmers played bluegrass which derived from Scot-Irish  immigrants residing in Southern Appalachia.  Bluegrass has much more of a knee slapping dance beat than country music, so I can sense some connection albeit a weak one.   
 
BTW, my father sold flour to Bill Monroe and his store in Kentucky.  Country music and its sister, cowboy songs, developed in the 1920s according to my father and quickly passed bluegrass as the primary diet of SWASPs (Southern White Anglo-Saxon Protestant).  And that branch of the music tree had little relationship to R'n'R branch.  My parents would take me as a kid to the Grand Ole Opry when family visited us in Nashville.  I did not like it.
 
Meanwhile I was discovering something else.  It came from the black churches and I recall hearing it as we drove past black revivals.  My father said something about "jungle music," and he was fairly close to the target.  The black gospel music and the Delta blues  were the origins of rhythm and blues which I feel has the predominant influence on the origins of R'n'R in its first and second waves.   In fact, us white boys in the South did not distinguish between R&B and R'n'R other than we thought R'n'R played by white Yankees was a distant second choice.  Elvis as a white performer was the leading exception, yet he was from the South and had more soul than many black singers.   
 
Thus, country music, not even bluegrass, played a role.  I was too young to have experienced swing, yet I feel from watching clips of swing music performers that with its active dance steps it had more influence than bluegrass.
 
In respect of your opinion, I visited the R'n'R Museum in Cleveland and it has an exhibit on origins.  It does mention white folk music and country music as sources, particularly the immensely talented Hank Williams who was the lifestyle prototype for Jim Morrison.   I can understand the influence for the Yankee white R'n'R which were forms of ballads. 
 
In summary, as an observer I say the blacks gave us R&B, which was the soul branch of R'n'R that I relished as a party animal.  So while you were crooning to some greasy haired, duck-tailed American-Italian doo wop music as a young teenager, we were doing the shag at beach pavilions to "Stay" by Maurice Willaims and the Zodiacs.  To be honest us ignorant Southern kids thought the seminal group the Diamonds of "Little Darling" fame were black, so I must admit that there was a lot of crossover.   
 
 
Of course, the Beatles and their harmony changed everything followed by other Britsh groups.   Yet some of the early songs by the Beatles and the Stones were R&B, so it influenced them too.  Eric Clapton, not exactly R'n'R but an immense talent IMO, talks of his love of the Delta blues. 
 
After entering the workforce I brought to a party some R&B oldies (e. g, "Money" by George Barrett Strong, Motown's first hit), and my Yankee date asked me who are these covers of Beatles' hits.  And today when I listen to the R&B oldies, I understand how unsophisticated was the music.  Not bad, nevertheless, considering that no one had any training.  My, how the black singers could dance and scream, and such was part of the attraction!

I guess you know that it was a white disc jockey playing R&B for white audiences in the early 1950s who coined the term R'n'R.

Post by: SANDRO43 on August 22, 2011, 06:50:35 AM
Phil,
I bow to your direct, on-the-ground experience :D, I was using 'country music' as a generic term. However, this was the first R'n'R piece that reached our shores in 1955, also featured in the movie Blackboard Jungle of the same year:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qnOf-OMuAw[/youtube]

IINM, Bill Haley's career started as a country music performer, as did other Dixie performers like Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent, Ricky Nelson, etc.

In summary, as an observer I say the blacks gave us R&B, which was the soul branch of R'n'R that I relished as a party animal.
I agree, R&B was the 'slows' that we played at our home parties, mostly by black performers like Fats Domino, The Platters, Billy Ward, etc.

I don't know what you mean by that, in our very first parties we played my father's Glenn Miller's 78 rpm shellac records and learned to boogie. Before the arrival of R&B, in addition to Moonlight Serenade we used things like this for slows:

Good points! 
 
At times I have made fun of your white R'n'R selections.  Believe me, it was friendly fun.  Actually, you have done well coming from Italy where I imagine your culture had its own pop singers at the time and they were  not  doing R'n'R.   I have a good friend from Sweden, a few years older than the two of us, and the music of his youth was jazz, and the local debate was Dixieland vs. other jazz.   
 
 
I made my R'n'R origins post in the wee hours last night while helping my son revise his resume.  I awakened this morning wondering about the content of that post [sad, thinking about RWD first thing in the morning, yet you going down memory lane energizes old folks  ;D ]. 
 
I neglected to mention two other roots for R'n'R:  1) boogie woogy (certainly influenced one R'n'R pioneer, Jerry Lee Lewis, the one and same who married his 13-yo cousin) and 2) honky tonk (country music with soul).  Oddly, these are not mentioned much in the discussions of the origins of R'n'R.  There are probably other roots I have not mentioned, illustrating that R'n'R was not a monolith, but more of an entwined labyrinth, with enough diversity for all tastes.
 
So I will continue to tease you about your white tastes such as the Beach Boys (just guessing).  However, if your youth had seen (and heard) and interacted with the black culture, you perhaps would have a different collection of 45s.  Perhaps the structure of the white music is more sophisticated and thus more appealing to your finely trained ear.   I offer this explanation:  To my untrained ear, the better white R'n'R prompted me to tap my feet while R&B compelled me to move my hips.   
 
I found this video of snippets of the oldies from 50s and 60s, and it provides a good contrast of the white R'n'R with black R&B in the early days.  Many are horrible; a few are classics.

Obviously not, Italian pop music up to the early 1950s was dominated by melodic belcanto performers like:

I had no direct exposure to it, only through records and I have plenty of R&B music in my dusty collection. Here's an example:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PhJUufowwI [/youtube]
Typical of the times, with its accompaniment in triplets that was copied by our first urlatori (screamers, i.e. non-melodic singers) around 1958:

Quote
Perhaps the structure of the white music is more sophisticated and thus more appealing to your finely trained ear.
Not pop music, it has a very simple dual structure of alternating strofa-ritornello (introduction-chorus). One cannot pack much of a structure into 2 minutes of music ;). On the other hand, blues music has, among others, the interesting feature of frequently using 'blue' notes, i.e. notes not normally in the standard scale, like, say, Eb and Bb in C major (C-D-E-F-G-A-B).

The Golden Gate Quartet is fairly well known.  Such is not pure Dixieland such as "Mushrat Ramble."   What you have is black gospel from the 1930s and part of the origins of R'n'R.  I heard it coming from the black churches as a kid.
 
I had a friend who collected the 78s of blues and gospel from that era.  Such recordings are rare.   First, the blacks very already poor and then the Depression came; few had the means to buy records.  Second, the people played the songs over and over and over, essentially wearing out the grooves.  Third, people moved to the North and these were discarded.  What you have is worth money to collectors. 
 
Around this time a young man named Robert Johnson was learning to play the guitar unlike any man before him.  His story claims that before he had a guitar he nailed five strings of wire to a board and plucked away.  Legend says he sold his soul to the devil because just as Moses returned with the Golden Tablets, one day he just magically started playing his guitar.   Many call him the first seed of R'n'R.  Robert Johnson was born 100 years ago in the Mississippi Delta, poorer than a church mouse.  He died when he was 27. 
 
 
His songs are similar to each other.  The following was covered with respect by Eric Clapton, Cream et al.

Yes, my point is that I was not too conditioned early by 'white' music only ;D. Apart from some exceptions like Bix Beiderbecke, Dixieland jazz was mostly black music, New Orleans leading in the 1910s  followed by Chicagoan Hot Jazz in the 1920s.

It should because they copied Robert Johnson.  Until Robert Johnson, the guitar was not widely featured in blues music or at least not played well with a couple of exceptions.   He innovated a new style.   And how important is the guitar to R'n'R!  Muddy Waters' fame came much later.  Big Bill filled in for Robert Johnson after his death. 
 
 
His fame came after his death.  Which is befitting in that many people seriously believe he sold his soul to the devil, as covered in this clip:
 
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jK4p432u8Ls&feature=related[/youtube]
 
So maybe my father was correct when complaining R'n'R was the music of the devil.
 
This is Johnson's bio when inducted into the R'n'R Hall of Fame, including praise by Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, and a mention of selling his soul.
 
http://rockhall.com/inductees/robert-johnson/ (http://rockhall.com/inductees/robert-johnson/)

Historians do list some blues singers from the Delta who were playing before Robert Johnson.  This is the person considered the first.

http://www.slimpickens-n-doctorbaz.com/charlie-patton

However, his style was crude supposedly  and not comparable.  It must have been very difficult to share music then.  They were itinerant musicians playing on the street for tips.   Recordings were very rare.  They did not write sheets of music and kept it in their heads.  As they traveled they would occasionally bump into each other.   Some historians have attempted to trace the  evolution of the early music.   Looking at the early photos one can feel the oppressing poverty.

 Back when I was still courting my wife, we were in St Pete’s café Elie (sp) with one of her older sister late one night having a drink and watching a local band play. We were seated along the front row and when the band took a break, they played Michael Jackson’s Billy Jean to fill in the gap…Shameless that I am, I got up off the table and did the MJ routine (which I knew down to a ‘tee’) on the dance floor with my back facing the crowd. No one else was dancing, just me.  :P
 
 
I can hear raucous and noises of mostly female voices and the started seeing camera flashes. My wife’s sister started shooting a video while walking around me. I was a complete ham. When I turned around, I saw about 6 RWs taking pics and some that were seated were applauding and even some of the RMs were smiling & clapping including a couple members of the band. When I got back to my seat, my wife was staring at me, then leaned over to give me a kiss and tells me she loves me…
 
MJ, the King of Pop, is simply awesome!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGensTavFwU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGensTavFwU)
 
  When my wife first arrived, she was literally like a typical Mormon white gal from Provo, Utah. She just didn’t have a funky bone in her body. It almost hurt to watch her dance. I had to change that as she tells me she would love to learn. We first tried to get her some rhythm and joined a dance school here in LA. A little jazz, contemporary and then on up to learn some Argentine Tango. But Funk and Pop is where it’s at…and that MJ moment in St Pete was impressed deep upon her collective ‘soul’. When we go out casual dancing, she mostly stands and reservedly moves while watching me.
 
 
 
Thank goodness for xBox Kinect. Our media room is now turned into my wife’s personal dance/workout studio. Last night she scored the highest point total so far (130K/110K) with Smooth Criminal and Billy Jean. We’re getting some funk into this girl’s soul finally. Kinect was actually pretty cool because it gives her instant feedback by seeing exactly where she needed to improve. Isolation, babe, I tell her. Rhythmic isolation is the essence of soul.
 
 
Here’s a couple of Kinect sampling.

Thanks Boethius,
This Dirty Mustard is good!

The radio programme (Opie and Anthony) asked homeless people to come in with a talent when they were promoting a homeless shelter appearance they'd be making.  Dirty Mustard came and sang a song he'd composed, and they were so impressed, they asked for more.  They gave him a guitar, and he sang Creep.  He's lived on the streets for quite some time, and beat addiction.

Dirty Mustard recently released his first album of his own compositions under his real name, Daniel Mustard.

I didn't quite grew up on the music of the likes of Hall & Oates, John Waitz, Corey Hart, but a lot of their creation resonated all through my younger days. The Teeny-Bop specials you hear a lot on the radio. Songs like She's Gone, Out of Touch, Maneater, Method Of Love, Missing you, Everytime You Go Away, Never Surrender, Sunglasses At Night...
 
These days, I enjoy watching Daryl's show on cable called 'Live at Daryl's House', where he host a great array of popular stars like Fitz & The Tantrums, KT Tunstall, John Roeneck, Robbie Thomas, Patrick Monahan, and even oldies great Smokey Robinson, Todd Rundgren and Jose Feliciano...
 
It's basically a jam fest and one of which I enjoy watching immensely...
 
On this one show, Daryl got together with Train's Patrick Monahan with this one number, which I believe was done about as well, if not better than the original motown classic...
 
Great cover! The song...

I chose an organ version because its timbre is closer to the Procul Harum's keyboard - it was originally written for klavier (harpsichord) as 4th movement of his 'French' Suite No. 2 in C minor (BWV 813).

Here's a later orchestral version of the Aria, from the Orchestral Suite No. 3 D major (BWV 1068):

TIMBRE
The peculiar identity of a musical instrument - determined by the relative 'strengths' of its harmonics. 'Impressionist' composers like Ravel and Debussy were the first to concentrate on this aspect of music, while previous composers like Bach were not overly concerned and gave generic indications on the instruments to be used (see my previous post).

Therefore, J.S. might not have objected to his Cantata Wer nur den lieben Gott läßt walten (BWV 93) being performed thus :D:

Well, Thanksgiving weekend came and went. I hope everyone had a wonderful time!
 
Fortunately for wifey and myself, we have much to be thankful for this year. Home Christmas decoration is almost done as well if only wifey can finish putting the lights up on the roof.
 
I'm lucky she fully embraced this period of the year with me. From carving out a pumpkin for haloween, remembering those that had since passed, giving thanks to our veterans, to tree hunting/decorating (although we bought a fake one last year ), midnight mass, and on up to bidding the past year goodbye to ringing in the new one...
 
Busy times for us both. Celebrating all our friends and families, and helping those who are both in need and/or are less fortunate than us at this time.
 
...and so this is Christmas!...so many holiday songs starting to ring the tune of a glorious Holiday to bring us all the cheers! This one has got be one of my favorite Chrismas songs...

You are correct - not Scottish.  The Irish have a long tradition of playing bagpipes.  Amazing Grace is played at policemen/firemen funerals because many policemen and firefighters are Irish.  19thC Irish immigrants had trouble getting factory jobs (NINA - No Irish Need Apply) and many took the dangerous jobs.

Yeah, Jackson Browne one of the guys that helped shaped the music leading into the '80s. I like his 'Tender Is The Night'. Too bad he ran into Darryl Hannah and he literally disappeared after they broke up. Then again, Darryl didn't really make too many movies thereafter either...
 
I still think San Francisco's Night Ranger's 'Sister Christian' is a Jackson Browne's creation. Certain songs have a distinct flavor about them that you can tell who wrote them, e.g. Bruce Springstein, Lionel Richie, etc...

"In 1991, just a year before she hit it big in Europe with Miss Perfumado, Cesaria Evora hit her stride in Paris with this warm and wonderful recording of morna music from Cape Verde. Produced with a light touch by José de Silva, Mar Azul is still close to the nightclub, to the smoke and whiskey roots of her music as she sang it back home; the great band seamlessly mixes jazz, blues, swing, Latin, and African music into something unique for its time. It is lush yet simple, beautiful and gritty and clean, and totally about this voice. An acoustic guitar or piano rules each track, with bass, light percussion, and touches of violin, clarinet, harmonica, or horn just brushing up against it. This is really where Evora developed comparisons to Billy Holiday, in her ability to sound both fragile and tough. Like classic jazz-blues, this music is about pain and elegance, expressed through a voice that convinces you she has seen both and often can't tell the difference."

Moon Goddess,
 
Cesaria is a vintage classic indeed.  If you enjoy her style, you may like Buena Vista Social Club from Cuba.  Cuba and Cape Verde Islands seem to share  similar culture such  creole populations from slaves from west Africa and colonialists of Iberian Peninsula.  Somewhat different climate.
 
This is their most popular song:

Although the melody is lively yet haunting, the lyrics are nothing special, perhaps a bit risque.  Same as when I first heard Bob Marley's  "No Woman No Cry."   Thinking Marley's lyrics were something profound and complex about love and not having a woman, I researched them (no Internet then, so it took a while).  Not about love, and not profound, and better explained by using  commas:  No, woman, no cry.  Basically, Marley was reminiscing about spending all night talking with friends.

Have there been many Latin music examples listed in this thread?  I enjoy the music.  One of my several favorites (besides the Buena Vista Social Club) is  Mariposa Traicionera by Mana - translation "Treacherous Butterfly."
 
The lyrics are as entertaining as the melody:   "You fly and you pose and you are going from mouth to mouth..."
 
Sounds like some RW.  :o The video is erotically entertaining (has an ad in the beginning).

"As it turns out, you really don’t need drugs to get high – in fact both music and a feeling of love can create reactions in the brain similar to the highs of cocaine.

...Scientists found that when subjects were listening to music that they said "gave them goosebumps" their dopamine levels rose by 6-9%, with one subject’s dopamine levels rising 21%.  By comparison, cocaine takes dopamine levels up by 22% or more.  A favorite piece was Samuel Barber’s “Adagio for Strings.”

I CANTI DELLE NOSTRE MONDINE
(The songs of our 'rice cleaners')

Rice (Oryza sativa) was first introduced from India to Europe by the Arabs in Spain in the XI century. The Spaniards then tried to cultivate it in their domains in Southern Italy without much success. Eventually it reached Lombardy in the XVth century, where its cultivation flourished and spread to other regions in the Po valley thanks to the fertile soil and abundance of water there.

Huge risaie (rice paddies) were a common sight in our areas up to the 1970s - Italy had become Europe's major producer - and the cultivation season reached its peak in the summertime with its monda (clean-up), i.e. the transplanting of the young rice shoots and eradication of infesting plants in the paddies. This back-breaking work used to be done by seasonal hired workers - mostly women, up to almost 300,000 in the 1950s - called monda-riso, or mondine for short. In 1949 a Neo-realist movie entitled Riso amaro (Bitter rice) documented their hard life.

(http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTM2NzMxMzg4MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjk2MzYwNA@@._V1._CR0,0,341,341_SS90_.jpg)

One way to alleviate their hard work was singing away the day with anything from current pop tunes to left-wing political songs (poor peasant women obviously tended to lean in that direction ;)) to specific 'situational' songs. I was reminded tonight of this long-forgotten world by a TV documentary on a very active choir group called Coro Mondine di Novi (http://www.mondinedinovi.it/new/) - their logo below shows some sprightly choristers :D:

(http://www.mondinedinovi.it/new/sites/default/files/wilderness_logo.jpg)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynwNGOUN9l4

A song that originated in the rice paddies - Bella ciao (So long pretty one, lyrics at http://www.marxists.org/subject/art/music/lyrics/it/bella-ciao.htm) later became the favoured songs of our partisans in the 1940s:

More of a samba tempo than a [95bpm] rumba tempo.  Modern samba music was heavily influenced by [and possibly derived from] Brazilian choro.  And you can dance to choro [but the jump lift at 2:30 is a bit tricky]:

The trick was a 'necklace' of small lead beads sown into her skirt hem. After shooting this scene several times, Fred complained loudly with the director about his bruised shins :D.

If this is your source...

3.  ginger
A rare natural hair colour which inspires odd and sometimes fearful reactions from the more common coloured hair types. Typically redheads are believed to be more sexual than normal, highly artistic, fierce fighters, and to have a greater tolerance for pain than average. The sun is their only real enemy. DeScendants of vikings. The Romans were said to have put red haired males born in the empire into training as soldiers since they were believed to be fierce warriors. Rome also gave up on taking Ireland due to the number of redheads they saw there. Women with ginger hair are greatly admired in the US yet feared in the UK.
Being called a "Ginger" is an insult in England but laughable in the US.
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ginger

...it contains a lot of rot:

1. Vikings were not yet much active/known in classical Roman times.
2. Light-haired recruits in Roman legions were mostly from Germanic tribes.
3. IINM, Rome never considered invading Ireland not because of its redheads, but simply because it contained little worth plundering ;). A major reason for invading England was its tin mines, the metal being used mixed with copper to make bronze and then being coined into Aesses until 23 BC, when it was replaced by pure copper coins.

Regarding Moon Goddess's question to us about why ginger is an insult in GB, I guess it is because many English discriminate against the Irish.
 
1. Vikings were not yet much active/known in classical Roman times.
2. Light-haired recruits in Roman legions were mostly from Germanic tribes.
3. IINM, Rome never considered invading Ireland not because of its redheads, but simply because it contained little worth plundering ;) . ....

While the Romans did not invade Ireland, the Norsemen certainly did starting in the 700s.   I have made a couple of golf trips to courses along the Irish coast.  One can see remnants of tall stone towers used in defense against the raiders.
 
During the Viking raids and plundering, the Norsemen supposedly were attracted to the redheaded women, and the Norsemen took them as captives to Norway.  And that is why Norway has a significant number of redheads today.  I imagine the Vikings captured more redheads from Scotland.

Precisely, AFTER the fall of the Roman Empire, while the quoted definition seems to imply that they did it in Roman times ;).

Quote
Red hair occurs on approximately 1–2% of the human population. It occurs more frequently (2–6%) in people of northern or western European ancestry, and less frequently in other populations.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/03/Woman_redhead_natural_portrait_1.jpg/220px-Woman_redhead_natural_portrait_1.jpg)

Anyway, redheads were already in Britain and on the Continent before Viking times:
Quote
Several accounts by Greek writers mention redheaded people. A fragment by the poet Xenophanes describes the Thracians as blue-eyed and red haired. Herodotus described the Budini people as being predominantly red haired. Dio Cassius described Boudica, Queen of the Iceni, to be "tall and terrifying in appearance... a great mass of red hair... over her shoulders."

The Roman historian Tacitus commented on the "red hair and large limbs of the inhabitants of Caledonia", which he connected with some red haired Gaulish tribes of Germanic and Belgic relation.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_hair

When I first visited Vienna in 1981, I was surprised by the abundance of natural redheads there - I don't think it was due to the Irish, or the Vikings either ;D.

Yes, but why so many redheads in Norway, going back to Eric the Red?  I am somewhat biased because decades ago I had a  redheaded girlfriend from Tromsa, Norway (served as administrator at Norway Embassy, Iran, and nothing wrong about her).  This opinion says 20% of the  coastal Norwegians have red hair.  True?

Did Harald "Bluetooth" have red hair?  Imagine that color scheme. 
 
With the genetic information now available, the recessive gene should be traceable to its origins.  I could find no convincing information (one source says it is Iranic, another Neaderthal).  If the redhead gene is a mutation and a recessive gene, it could occur anywhere.  Any predominance of a recessive gene depends upon Mendel, et al. 

Anyway, JMO there is nothing wrong with ginger haired people.  I dated briefly a UW with red hair.  She traced her roots to Poland, and before that who knows.

Fantastic Sandro!   I know this group as they came from near my hometown.    Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs with roots in black gospel music.   The song's rhythm encouraged grinding one's hips and was a welcomed departure from doo wop music.  I was just a kid with sex thoughts throughout the day; I had no experience other than my cousin letting me feel her newly formed breasts.   Crazy days.
 
Maurice Williams wrote a doo wop song in the 1950s that was later covered by a white group, The Diamonds, as one of Rock n Roll's Hall of Fame hits - "Little Darling." I assume it was popular in your Italy.  Here they are 47 years later:

Just to remind   ;)

The famous "Carol of the Bells"  sung worldwide during the Christmas season was arranged by the Ukrainian composer M. Leontovich, and it is based on a Ukrainian folk chant known in this country as "Shchedryk”

MUSIC TO REDEEM THE DESTITUTES

Music as a means to avoid the low life of the barrios, obtain a more fulfilling future and possibly also find a rewarding job.

Venezuelan musician José Antonio Abreu was inspired to found in 1975 El Sistema, formally known as the Foundation for the National Network of Youth and Children Orchestras of Venezuela, a network of music schools, first in Caracas then elsewhere in his country.

The peak of Abreu's Sistema is the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar:

There were similar initiatives in the past ;):

In September 1703, Vivaldi became maestro di violino (master of violin) at an orphanage called the Pio Ospedale della Pietà (Devout Hospital of Mercy) in Venice. While Vivaldi is most famous as a composer, he was regarded as an exceptional technical violinist as well...Vivaldi was only 25 when he started working at the Ospedale della Pietà. Over the next thirty years he composed most of his major works while working there. There were four similar institutions in Venice; their purpose was to give shelter and education to children who were abandoned or orphaned, or whose families could not support them. They were financed by funds provided by the Republic. The boys learned a trade and had to leave when they reached 15. The girls received a musical education, and the most talented stayed and became members of the Ospedale's renowned orchestra and choir.

Those little girls, Sophia and Rosie, made me weep with laughter. They are adorable,  albeit precocious :)
Poor Rosie didn't get much of a look in, but she seemed ever so happy just to be there :)

Splendid performance by a Genius playing another Genius !

I wonder if Johann Sebastian Bach would mind having this music (originally written for harpsichord) played on a piano  :-\
Maestro, what think You of it?   :)

Maestro, what think You of it? :)
Supposing this was addressed to me ;), in general I think that harpsichord pieces played on the piano violate their original 'atmosphere', considering the profound difference between the two instruments: the almost total absence of dynamics in the harpsichord led to scores with closely grouped short notes, trills, etc. that sound sort of homeless on a piano, and also lack the typical guitar-like sound of the plucked instrument ::).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UphgbPUwWZA

J.S. Bach wrote about 12 harpsichord concertos, mostly recycled from previous pieces for violin(s) - for 1, 2, 3 and even 4 keyboards. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfYq9V0l4dY

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Apbf5lcyO-s

As can be seen in the above score, the keyboards parts are mostly in semiquavers. I also think J.S. was strongly influenced by Vivaldi, whose Grosso Mogul violin concerto (RV 208) he knew and transcribed for solo organ (BWV 594) and then used in his first Concerto (in D minor, BWV 1052). To my ear, those concertos have a distinct Venetian flavour.

I am ashamed to say that I have only recently discovered this pianist  :-[
His facial expressions seem to communicate the pleasure of being immersed in the flow of sounds and the joy of his music-making to which the pianist brings an original and very personal approach, IMHO.

He is David Fray  :clapping:

Some down home  Russian music at the Rhythm&Blues cafe in Moscow:

Sad to say, but that was the best I found from scanning the R&B cafe videos.
The Latin music at the Chesterfield Club in Moscow sounds a little better....and
they appear to need a few more guys at the Thursday night Salsa lessons:

OTTORINO RESPIGHI
(1879–1936)
Quote
Ottorino Respighi was born in Bologna, Italy. He was taught piano and violin by his father, who was a local piano teacher. He went on to study violin and viola with Federico Sarti at the Liceo Musicale in Bologna, composition with Giuseppe Martucci, and historical studies with Luigi Torchi, a scholar of early music. A year after receiving his diploma in violin in 1899, Respighi went to Russia to be principal violist in the orchestra of the Russian Imperial Theatre in St Petersburg during its season of Italian opera. While there he studied composition for five months with Rimsky-Korsakov. He then returned to Bologna, where he earned a second diploma in composition...He is best known for his orchestral "Roman trilogy": Fountains of Rome (Fontane di Roma); Pines of Rome (Pini di Roma); and Roman Festivals (Feste romane).

Since he studied composition with Korsakov, it's no surprise he was a great orchestrator, i.e. a composer with a very rich orchestral palette, as can be immediately surmised by noticing the large ensembles needed to play his pieces ;).

Among other composers with the same bent for rich orchestral colours one can list Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Ravel, Debussy, etc. Many of their compositions bore titles like symphonic poem or capriccio, and were meant to convey particular atmospheres with those colours.

The debate in a couple of other threads brought this song to mind.  Not really a country fan, but a local band covers this song really well, and I do like some of Shania's music.

Positive message?
Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square cut or pear shape these rocks don't lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend.
. . .
In this thread wine, men, and song are a girl's best friend.
One more with a postive message - a little song and dance and a long line of men
waiting to dance with lovely Dasha, hostess of the SIberian Salsa Fest:
