I understand, that during the Second World War, the BBC used to come on, presaged by the sounds of the Fifth Sympony. "V for Victory"...there were messages, to the underground. Apparently, even during the war, there were "Good Germans."

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

It turns out that this is from the movie: Once Upon a Time in America: Cockey's song. (1984)

I never saw the film...or if I did, it didn't make as much of an impression as his other work.

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

Good to see someone dedicated to a thread like this.

I'm quite illiterate when it comes to classical music, but I still enjoy a good classical song when I bump into one.

It's always Night, or we wouldn't need Light. - Thelonius Monk (via Thomas Pynchon)

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

Mozart lovers, how your heart reacts when listening symphony No.36 and No.39?

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erich_Wolfgang_Korngold
I am familiar with this fellow, as a composer for Hollywood. I saw his name on various screen credits AND classical music radiocast programming…and the above hyperlink tells me that he escaped the “anschluss” by coming back to Hollywood to compose “a score for the new (and very expensive) film The Adventures of Robin Hood starring Errol Flynn.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EsYUuGo8XA <--Violin Concerto movement #1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRkuHKc9YJQ <--Violin Concerto movement #2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJEy8Vnm29c <--Violin Concerto movement #3

vvv-from the ‘film library’ of Korngold’s works-vvv
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-r6mU2JnKo
“Great music of Korngold in the second half of this clip written for or the 1938 film Robin Hood .”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-RPzAbW7No <--Sea Hawk pt.1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4KCPnj06PE <--Sea Hawk pt.2
“The Sea Hawk was a 1940 adventure movie starring Errol Flynn. “
