I used 3 of my orchestrations (Carioca, La Mer, Siboney) to create slideshows with personal photos that have some thematic relevance to those songs:

This an old song, but any time I hear it no matter what I'm doing, I find myself pausing what I'm doing and begin tapping along with the beat...


My wonderful rebuttal to the Prague Spring thread is now *relocated* again (being actively hidden, lol) in *Anything Goes* section, titled: Willy Waving. Hurry before she deletes it altogether. LMAO! Enjoy.

A further slideshow with my own photos:


A Corrida in Madrid's Plaza de toros where I took some photos back in 1972, and explanations in Italian about its rituals. Not exemplary since the matador did not manage to kill the bull cleanly with his estocada ::).

A typo in its title (Madridkd :() that I'll correct eventually.

EARLY GENIUSES
« Reply #1631 on: February 22, 2018, 10:22:18 PM »
EARLY GENIUSES
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)


In 1821, at 12

Slightly later at 13, he composed his 1st Piano Concerto in A minor, opus no. 0 because it was not published later :o.


Above his original MS, with a few corrections. The opening Allegro movement shows, particularly in the piano part, a decided influence by W.A. Mozart, another "early genius".

EASTER MUSIC

Easter is fast approaching, and churches in Milan and other cities offer free concerts where one can discover hitherto unknown composers of fine choral music.

Felice Anerio (1560-1614)

Michael Haydn (1737-1806) (Younger brother of Franz Joseph)

Anton Bruckner
(1824 – 1896)
Quote
Austrian composer and organist best known for his symphonies, masses, Te Deum and motets. The first are considered emblematic of the final stage of Austro-German Romanticism because of their rich harmonic language, strongly polyphonic character, and considerable length.

Fos some reason this music of the Englishman is popular in Russia and Ukraine. I think the Bernstein rendering is more forceful but this from Piter by Temirkanov is great.

Another fine piece by Elgar:

However, his most famous piece is:

Particularly after 7'35". When I lived in London in 1971, after the last film show this bit accompanied a clip showing the Queen trooping the colour, at which everybody in the audience rose as a sign of respect, then left the theatre.

I have always wondered why Britain produced so very few notable composers before and after Henry Purcell (1659–1695) ::).

Some might consider G. F. Handel (1685-1759) English. I think the fine arts sometimes move in different speeds.

There were many great musicians in the 18th century, but relatively few writers. England again produced interesting musicians at the end of the 19th and first half the 20th century, E. Elgar, Vaughan Williams and B. Britten

Than in the post war period there was the Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who . . . . and on and on.

On the other side of the coin is Sir J. Tavener

This one is for all the BBoyz out there! Enjoy life!

An awesome JESSE COOK cover of Dylan's classic..

IT AIN'T ME BABE!

Vocals by Melissa MccLelland

Go 'way from my window. Leave at your own chosen speed
I'm not the one you want, babe. I'm not the one you need
You say you're lookin' for someone, who's never weak but always strong
To protect you an' defend you whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door, But it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe. It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go lightly from the ledge, babe. Go lightly on the ground
I'm not the one you want, babe. I will only let you down
You say you're lookin' for someone, who will promise never to part
Someone to close his eyes for you, someone to close his heart
Someone who will die for you an' more, but it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me babe, it ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back in the night. Everything inside is made of stone
There's nothing in here moving, an' anyway I'm not alone
You say you're looking for someone, who'll pick you up each time you fall
To gather flowers constantly, an' to come each time you call
A lover for your life an' nothing more, but it ain't me, babe
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe. It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.


Wifey and I never miss Jesse perform here in LA. One of her most favorite artist. Mine, too.

Believe or not, MIL was such a trooper when she went to Arroyo Seco music festival with us this past summer. She was so glad to finally put a face, and see Robert Plant perform live, after living all those years listening to Papa play Led Zeppelin's music while rocking his air guitar over and over again in secrecy as apparently western music was forbidden in USSR back in the days...

Speaking of Robert Plant/Led Zeppelin..


Randy California of the '70s band named 'SPIRIT' initially sued LedZep for claims that they stole the riffs to *Stairway To Heaven*. A few years ago, the ruling went against Randy's estate. However, last Friday the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ordered to re-open this case again.


Plant/Page possibly faces millions of dollars in damages if this time the ruling works against them this time.


Here's Randy's 'Taurus', the song that which alleges the charge of plagiarism...the chord progression sounds eerily similar right at the 1:40 mark. Spirit headlined for with LedZep back in the days...
