Nice, ML. 


I like Leonard Cohen's version, but in my mind, the gold standard is kd lang's version.

NEW MUSIC IN THE 1950s - Part I

The Italian musical scene in the early 1950s was still dominated by melodic singers, when sudddenly from the USA came a wave of new music with a strange name. A few examples:





To be continued :D.

After exerting strenuously dancing the R'n'R, one needed the slower tempos provided by more "romantic" artists:

Shostakovich lead a tragic life, terrorized by the party his entire life.  Still, he composed beautiful music.

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.

HISTORIA DE UN AMOR
(1958)

A fine song by the Panamanian composer Carlos Eleta Almarán. Unlike the charming video clip, its lyrics are rather sad because it was prompted by the untimely death of his brother's wife.


I found a fine guitar score for it, and am preparing my own orchestration, adding several other instruments.

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).

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 :(.

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!

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.

Probably far better than inflicting her amateur level pianist skills on us.  This seems to go in cycles, with violinists as well.  Another "mover" amateur pianist is Khatia Buniatishvili.  Here are some far better interpretations of Chopin.  Listen particularly for the left hand, which separates a great pianist from one who is destined for mediocrity -
