You already posted his Waltz No.2 two months ago, as I did 8 months ago under the title "A GREAT WALTZ" ;D. Time for another Waltz or three, from Boccherini's Night music in the streets of Madrid:


Russel Crow and Paul Bettany played the waltz from 7'53" to 9'53" in the great cabin of HMS Surprise :D.

Good music.  Classic movie.

Classic movie.
Indeed. Australian director Peter Weir went NHB for his 2003 movie, the production must have cost quite a lot: purchase of an actual frigate replica for shoots at sea, construction of a real-size model for interior shoots, etc.

He was fanatic about accuracy: I have the movie CDs, the second CD has all the preparations he made, for instance about the actual sound of a fired cannon - nearby it starts with a sort of ZIIPPP, like tearing canvas, when the ball exits the barrel, before the loud BOOM is heard :D. Of course, a cast of mostly British and Dominion actors was selected, for credible English accents.

As a kid he was an avid reader of Patrick O'Brian (1914-2000) 21 books of this series, much as I was with C.S. Forester's 10 books on the adventures of Horatio Hornblower, after seeing in 1952 as a 9-year old the movie in full colour :o of Captain Horatio Hornblower, starring Gregory Peck and Virginia Mayo.

The Hollywood costume department made a mess of the other officers' uniforms, a shocking light blue-green colour - not the regulation Navy blue - and exaggeratedly wide coat lapels :(.


To date, my library has a total of 261 - and counting - such books, which allowed me to write that long page on the RN of sailing ships and build my Nautical Glossary.

Personally, I just got the DVD.  Probably watched it around 6 times.  Getting the DVD and not reading the book was the lesser of two weevils.

Actually, the movie plot is not following strictly that of the book: HMS Surprise ends up in the Moluccas, much farther West than the Galapagos 8).

HISTORIA DE UN AMOR
(1958)
I found a fine guitar score for it, and am preparing my own orchestration, adding several other instruments.
Done :D. I found a MUCH better MIDI to MP3 converter, and used it on my most recent uploads.


I still have 70+ to re-convert :(.

Done. I also decided to add the MP3 alternative for playing my pieces of classical music, hitherto without it:

One of the most fun I used to have with my first fender Strat was playing an immortalized 12-bar blues written by JJ Cale. Of course, Ronnie (RIP), as with many others after him, covered this hip bluesy / southern rock classic... Still rocks for me today!

...Here's Lynyrd Skynyrd's Ronnie Van zant's cover of the song - *phazered* out to rock the tune!

APANHEI-TE, CAVAQUINHO
(I got you, cavaquinho)

A lively piece by the prolific Brazilian composer Ernesto Júlio de Nazareth (1863–1934):




Ernesto Júlio de Nazareth - Portuguese and Brazilian cavaquinhos

The cavaquinho is a small, 4-stringed guitar.
