Re: Classical music, it's a gas

I don't follow classical music but recently, I came upon this piece which is an Opera performance on youtube and I loved the music. Its supposedly a piece called Manon by Jules Massenet. I love the music, especially the soothing revivifying violins in the beginning and it kind of gave me a spring start to my day when I played it in the morning. My problem, however is that when I look up for the song on google, it is giving me totally different pieces of manon by jules massenet, that don't sound like this one at all. I want to download or buy this particular song only in all its operatic fullness, with the same intro, but I need to know which song it really is.

Please help. I didn't want to open a new thread because I knew this existed and assumed one of you fans of classical music might help. Here is the video:

Quote:
The music was composed by Leone's long-time collaborator, Ennio Morricone. Due to the film's unusually long gestation, Morricone had finished composing most of the soundtrack before many scenes had even been filmed. Some of Morricone's pieces were actually played on set as filming took place (a technique that Leone had used for Once Upon a Time in the West). "Deborah's Theme", considered by many to be the best piece of this soundtrack, was in fact originally written for another film in the 1970s but rejected; Morricone presented the piece to Leone, who was initially reluctant, considering it too similar to Morricone's main title for Once Upon a Time in the West.

There's a BBC Orchestra rendition of the Fireworks music on Youtube that is currently my favourite piece of music in any genre. I'm something of an ignoramus when it comes to all forms of music, but Handel seems to have composed so many of my favourites - the Fireworks, Zadok the Priest, the Water music, the Sarabande that Kubrick used so effectively in the film Barry Lyndon...

Other ones I like are Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, which is used with very sharp irony in Soylent Green, Bach's Air on a G String, Pachelbel's Canon, the Moonlight Sonata... yes, all the tracks you'd find on a That's What I Call Classical Music album.

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

Arthur Rubinstein, anyone? I LOVE Chopin and I believe this guy was a fantastic player










I also like Tchaikovsky, Wagner and Orff





(anything better than the BPO playing Wagner at the Berliner Philarmonie? those guys are awesome, even if I think their Karajan era will never be surpassed )



(Carmina Burana and Catulli Carmina are AWESOME, besides the guy was such a revolucionary on the musical education for kids)

Thanks for this! I love the "less-famous" Queen of the Night aria.
