Hmmmmm....what was life like before youTube?

I used to describe myself as an ABC fan. Anything But Classical. Until I was in the 5th Grade Orchestra and we got to play the pop version of Beethoven's Fifth. Our teacher/conductor encouraged us to dig deeper, and, I did. Fell in love with Classical.

But I still thought I hated Opera. Until I was about 12 and baking Christmas cookies with a family friend who had Lucia Di Lammermoor playing on the PBS radio station. The announcers took the time to explain what was in the upcoming segments (this was loooong before subtitles at performances) and the story just moved me. I've been in love with it ever since.

Hopefully, I have..and will continue to...expose my two young daughters to the wide array of music...including classical and opera. With any luck, I'll have someone to take me to such performances when I'm old and feeble. But before I get there, one of the things on my Bucket List is to visit LaScalla. For a performance of Carmen. Ahhhh......

Thanks to all of you who have posted favorite clips. :)

I've been delighted with "Lascia ch'io pianga" for a few weeks. I hadn't known it before I watched "Antichrist" by von Trier. Now I know it's from "Rinaldo", composed by Georg Friedrich Händel.

prima: could you translate for me the title? I've found "Let me weep over" but... :shrug:

And later this fragment: "Il duolo infranga queste ritorte". How would you translate it? What's "ritorto"? I haven't got such a word in my dictionaries :(

Kubrick's Barry Lyndon got me into classical music. And I'm glad it did. When I was a teenager it was rather a closed book to me.

Schubert's Trio in E Flat is just beauty and in Kubrick's masterpiece, it's close to perfection. :yeah:

This is a wonderful thread, thanks Prima Donna for starting it :) and all yous for the contributions, lots of my favourites already :yeah:

I was just curious, thread consensus, would you allow Instrumentals, such as film scores, cos they aren't in the same ilk as Beethoven, Bach and Berlioz, but some of Hans Zimmer, James Horner, John Williams, Harry Gregson-Williams, Michael Nyman's stuff can be quite orchestral and I guess modern classic? I shall wait for confirmation before posting any though :D

He said that himself indeed, "meine Zeit wird noch kommen".

it was used in Visconti's film "Death in Venice". it is believed that Thomas Mann was inspired to write "Death in Venice" after seeing Gustav Mahler breaking down in tears on the train departing Venice. Dirg Bogarde's one of his most elegiac performances. all of them, Mann, Mahler, Visconti, Bogarde and von Karajan, manage to be sorrowful, yet seductive at the same time.

last night i immensely enjoyed the performance of your fellow countrymen, Anda Louise Bogza (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anda-Louise_Bogza) and Alexandru Agache (http://www.bruceduffie.com/agache.html) in Verdi's 'Nabucco' in Herod of Atticus Theatre (http://travelphoto.gr/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Acropoli-Irodio-295x125.jpg) below the Acropolis.

my heart, arteries and lungs were affected in many ways when i was listening to 'va, pensiero' the chorus in the third act...

lyrics translated in English:

Fly, thought, on wings of gold;
go settle upon the slopes and the hills,
where, soft and mild, the sweet airs
of our native land smell fragrant!

Greet the banks of the Jordan
and Zion's toppled towers...
Oh, my country so beautiful and lost!
Oh, remembrance so dear and so fatal!

Golden harp of the prophetic seers,
why dost thou hang mute upon the willow?
Rekindle our bosom's memories,
and speak to us of times gone by!

Mindful of the fate of Jerusalem,
give forth a sound of crude lamentation,
or may the Lord inspire you a harmony of voices
which may instill virtue to suffering.

xWGIMupJtNY

it's also known in English as 'Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves'. what a flowing, powerful, revolutionary hymn and ...

has also become the unofficial hymn of Italian national liberation and reunification, even of international freedom movement... a couple of months ago ("Celebrazione dei 150 anni dall'Unitŕ d'Italia", Replica del Nabucco al Teatro dell'Opera di Roma il 15-3-2011), Riccardo Muti invited the audience to sing, raised his hands and began... but he was not conducting the chorus or the orchestra.... he was conducting the audience...

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?

My mom used to play this a lot. It's gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. :)

This is slightly predictable but it's my all-time favourite:

Going through this thread makes me sad. Many (perhaps most) of its regular contributors are gone or inactive.

Maybe there are still enough interested posters to keep it alive and running?

In any case, last week, like every year, I had the pleasure of attending a live performance of one of the greatest works ever composed by the greatest composer of all time.

This is "Erbarme Dich" from the St Matthew Passion by J.S. Bach. Performed by the Choir and Orchestra of the Collegium Chorale Ghent under Philippe Herreweghe. The alto is a male (the excellent Damien Guillon), which is not commonly seen.

My musical fancies are usually expressed in the "What song...?" thread. I forgot this thread existed, even though I have a faint memory of contributing to it.

Upon watching Ari Folman's beautiful and disturbing poetic masterpiece "Vals Im Bashir" (2008) I initially didn't understand why I kept having flashbacks to another fave of mine - Robert Bresson's equally beautiful and disturbing poetic masterpiece "Au Hasard Balthazar" (1966) - as the two movies aren't even remotely similar beyond both being great works of art. The confusion didn't last for a minute. Both movies use this piece to amazing effect, albeit in different ways.

The soundtrack for GM :lol:

I get the goose pimples every time, hair stands up, and experience sublime emotional terror which I cannot understand, a mystery better left unexplained, being beyond the limits of language (and thank goodness for that!). The power of music and art.

Possibly the most overrated piece from the most overrated composer ever. I am not even trying to exaggerate.

This piece consists literally of nothing more than one part (the piano) arpeggiating triad chords and another part (the violin) going up and down the diatonic scale for seven minutes. C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C... B, A, G, F, E, D, C... These are things you learn in the first three months of musical training.

A true genius, this Pärt! :rolleyes:

I'm not the biggest fan of Mahler, but this symphony is a beautiful piece, certainly my favourite.

I've never "watched" an opera (pls. correct me if the expression is wrong), and the local cinema is offering an live opera exho. Any tips?. They will show EUGENE ONEGIN, a russian opera.

Yes, it is that short.

They say that about many things, but it's especially true about opera: either you love it or you hate it.

All those operas are great, but I'd recommend this one: http://www.cinecolombia.com/pelicula/bogota/opera-cosi-fan-tutte

Tosca is also a personal favourite. But again, you can't go wrong with any of those.
