Re: Classical and Opera lovers

Thank you Getta - thoroughly enjoyed them. It's really strange, but I first remember this from radio in 1968 -- we used to have to announce a programme called "Afternoon Concert" -- which is where, through osmosis I guess, I learned most of what I started to know about classical music - and in all this time I've never seen, nor sought a translation... which just goes to prove, I guess, just how universal a language music really is.

I have somewhere, and I'll try to find it, a steelpan version of it which I'll rip and post for you... hopefully in a few days. Have you ever heard any classical music played on steelpan?
