....before Bossa Nova got big in this country, with performers like Sergio Mendes, (currently enjoying a resurgence, due to covers with the Black-Eyed Peas) there was this hit film, with a lot of beautiful Brasilian music.

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

wonderful stuff in here! not just the Brazilian

yes, manhã de carnaval means morning of carnival

we usually go back home in the morning in this kind of party
bossa nova and samba can be so melancholic and also so happy at te same time. It's just... beautiful

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

No doubt most of you have heard of "funtwo" a Korean guitar student/player, who learned from somebody else's posting of a set of tabs for Pachelbel's "Canon in D,' ...and surpassed the original poster in dexterity. He became sort of an internet legend, or "meme"...I guess.

Here is one of his many youtube links.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fN4fIRjMf-M
His real name is Jeong-Hyun Lim, he's 23, and here are some other of his picks.

That is genius. The Prelude is the last piece that my piano teacher and I worked on, and the last section is just insane with the the chords.

What would Anderson say?
