What a brilliant, eclectic collection of music. Perhaps we should get a CD of it. :D

Perhaps this is a better use of the Teutonic master piece, Scotty. :)

Hi Bee,on our last cruise we had a Russian lady pianist as part of the entertainment.
She played Flight of the Bumblebee got a standing ovation then told us her first music love was Boogie
so she played it again in Boogie Woogie style.Got another standing ovation.Talked to her later and told her that her
version just sounded like the one Bee Bumble and the Stingers did in 1962.Se had never heard of them.She was still
in Russia when they recorded it.so I brought it up on my touch pad and played it for her and she was amazed but loved it.She also listened to
their version of the Nutcracker called Nut Rocker and decided she was going to make that part of her show in the future.

Lots of child prodigies, Bill, another Lang Lang perhaps?

Here is a piece from Leo Delibes, born in France 1836 died 1891. It's the Flower duet from Lakme. Set in the time of the British Raj in India, the two characters are the daughter of a Brahmin priest, Lakme and her servant, Mallika.

However, most of us will know it as the BA advert :D

On our last cruise March/April of this year we had a wonderful string quartet that played
twice a day on the man foyer of the Regatta.They played everything from Bach to Beethoven
to the Beatles to Queen you have to hear Bohemian Rhapsody played on a cello, two violins and a viola
One night they played Bolero.There were only 600 passengers on that cruise but I bet 300 of them were crowded together
to listen.We could not give them a standing ovation as we were all already standing but the applause and cries of encore
lasted for at least 5 minutes so they played it again to the same result.They were 4 young Ukrainians but had studied at the State
Conservatory of Music in St Petersburg Russia.Pure magic.

One of my favourite ELO tracks, One summer dream, from the Face the music album. It may not be classical music to some, but Jeff Lynne has definitely been guided by a classical composer. If anyone has any suggestions as to who his influences are on this track, I'd appreciate their thoughts. Because, if you take the lyrics out, it could be classical music.

Uplifting piece of music from the great Carl Orff - the sound brings memories of childhood, especial music time at St James' infants - Miss Stringer on the piano, children kitted out with triangles, symbols tambourines and a drum...oh! Happy days :lol:

Following words from musician Carl Orff (1895 - 1982)

"Tell me, I forget;
Show me, I remember;
Involve me, I understand." :wink:

Thanks Phil, glad you enjoyed it :)
Good thread, lovely idea :D listened to every piece of music so far, all great :wink:
Now that we have the Classical thread going, perhaps we should also add a country thread, many country fans from Bootle - then Jazz for those who prefer a racket :lol:

Shelagh - Now, that was absolutely delightful. It also brought back a memory
of when we were visiting my younger bro and whenever we got into his
car he always had on his cd player: "Carmina Burana " by Carl Orff
which I'm afraid neither Lew nor I could stand; however, as we were their
guests we did not want to say anything but our heads were spinning each
time we got out of that car!!! :roll: :D
Must say Lew was particularly impressed with the NASA shots as
he worked for NASA for over 33 years as a Computer Programmer
working on several of the projects shown, for example , the LDEF
or Long Duration Exposure Facility.

That's the Orff I know, Patricia :D . Very powerful choral piece. I first heard it in the Excalibur movie.

Can I bring it back to a more relaxing ambiance? Here is a piece from Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini, who was born in Italy 1854 and died 1924. Its an opera about an American naval lieutenant, Pinkerton, who gets a Japanese girl pregnant. He leaves her but says he'll come back.

Butterfly waits forlornly for about four years, until she finally sees an American warship in the harbour. Thinking Pinkerton has come back she is overjoyed, until she finds out that he is married to an American woman and want to take her son back to the USA. Overcome with grief, Butterfly commits Seppuku in the final act.

This piece is called the Humming chorus and appears just over halfway through. Butterfly has seen Pinkerton's ship in the harbour and has prepared her home for his arrival. This is sung as she waits for him to come.

There has just been a fine outdoor performance, set against the back drop of Sydney Harbour bridge by Opera Australia on Sky. You can get it on the Sky demand feature.

Patricia, glad you liked choice of music, still smiling at scenario of you and Lew trapped in car with "Carmina Burana" no wonder your heads were spinning :lol: don't think that piece was intended for small confined spaces :lol: art work attached to Carmina video - beautiful, looked to be that of Turner!
Didn't know Lew worked for NASA :) now see why Carl Orff film shots were of interest.. they are pretty fascinating :D

Phil; lovely gentle piece of music by Puccini, the visuals, also spectacular..so beautiful :wink:

Great thread and I thought I was the only one on the forum that liked classical music.

I recall my love of the classical music started with the BBC proms in the late 1940's 50's. We had just had electricity put in our terrace house in Bowden St and that meant we could get a Redifusion radio ( I think it was Redifusion). It was then that I discovered the BBC proms during the summer months.

At that time all the kids from the streets either side of Webster road used to gather in the summer evenings to gossip and play games, usually hide and seek. We would gather near a small convenience store across from the fish and chip shop, can't remember the name of the street. I was considered something of an odd bod because during the Proms if there was something on that I liked I would quit the game and go home to listen to the broadcast. By the time the broadcast was finished and I went out to re-join the game in many cases everyone had gone home and I was left on my own. I had nothing else to do them but cycle up and down Webster road whistling tunes I head from the proms, including my favourite at the time the various songs from the Peer Gynt suite by Grieg. These day I am more into the orchestral music of Beethoven.

Shelagh, thanks for that link, I loved it, especially the reaction of the kids in the crowd.

Phil, I couldn't get your link to work down under, YET, I'll work on my VPN to see if I can overcome the country restriction.

This is one of my favourite renditions of the final movement of that symphony, once again at the BBC proms.
