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 :(.

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!

Call Me The Breeze



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

~1. Because of 'man', global warming is causing desert and arid areas to suffer long, dry spell.
2. The 2018 Camp Fire and Woolsey California wildfires are forests burning because of global warming

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 -

Tico-Tico no Fubá

"Sparrow in the cornmeal" is a lively song composed in 1917 by Zequinha de Abreu, here in the 1947 move Copacabana, sung by Portuguese-born Brazilian actress Carmen Miranda, noted for her signature fruit-hat outfit she wore in her American films.

UNUSUAL MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS-1


The glass harmonica was invented in 1761 by Benjamin Franklin. It consists of a series of glass bowls or goblets graduated in size to produce musical tones by rubbing a wet finger over them.

A similar result can be obtained with a number of crystal glasses partially filled with water at different heights.

UNUSUAL MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS-2


The theremin was invented by Léon Theremin (Лев Термен), who patented the device in 1928. The theremin is distinguished among musical instruments in that it is played without physical contact. The thereminist stands in front of the instrument and moves his or her hands in the proximity of two metal antennas. The distance from one antenna determines frequency (pitch), and the distance from the other controls amplitude (volume).

Its eerie sounds have been included in various TV series and films, like Forbidden Planet, a 1956 science fiction movie starring Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis and Leslie Nielsen.


Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich was one of the first to incorporate parts for the theremin in orchestral pieces, including a use in his score for the 1931 film Odna.

Visually spectacular but musically insignificant: in the video it plays just a simple 8-note melody in 2 variations.

It uses the same working principle of much older contraptions:

Quote
Forbidden Planet's innovative electronic music score, credited as "electronic tonalities", partly to avoid having to pay any of the film industry music guild fees, [30] was composed by Bebe and Louis Barron... While the theremin (which was not used in Forbidden Planet) had been used on the soundtrack of Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945), the Barrons' electronic composition is credited with being the first completely electronic film score; their soundtrack preceded the invention of the Moog synthesizer by eight years (1964). Louis Barron constructed his own electronic circuits that he used to generate the score's "bleeps, blurps, whirs, whines, throbs, hums, and screeches".[15] Most of these sounds were generated using an electronic circuit called a "ring modulator".
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forbidden_Planet#Soundtrack

You can make a 'really poor man's theremin' by putting a marble or small ball bearing inside a balloon and then blowing it up and rolling the marble around inside. Here is another stab at it from the marble man called an Ondophone. It sounds sort of like a theremin ----
 

I have always wanted to build the Barron ring modulator which I saw demoed on TV when I was a kid.
