Welcome back, Becca! The bike looks great. I know you're excited!

I had the weirdest dream last night. I wish I remembered the details. It was something about me about to go into English jail for something dumb. But Rossy apparently spoke to the queen and I was let go,and it was some sort of national event.

I watched Rum Diaries before going to bed,so that accounted for the jail part, but I have no idea where the rest came from.

What an odd dream, Aimee! At least you were lucky that Rossy and the queen were good friends.

Here is a lovely video on contemporary music written by two young composers. I think this little film even helps understand this genre, always full of expressiveness. I loved it.

Hi! This thread looks quiet lately. I hope you all are doing well.

Some music by Tartini: his cello concerto in D major. I think the third movement of this concerto is one of the most beautiful and saddest piece of music ever written. Just my two cents.

Good night!

An old but very funny sketch on the piano, just for a laugh.





Now time to come back to the Grieg, using headphones, you know here it's late.

Hey everybody, wherever you might be...
I heard this today. Never heard of her, but I really liked it.
Apparently Ray Davies wrote it originally; Cher, Chrissie Hynde, and a couple of others recorded it. Will have to look up Chrissie's.

This chick's got a great voice. Will have to see what else she's done.

Dynamobt, glad you enjoyed Victor Borge’s sketch.

Aimee, I liked “I go to sleep”, that girl has a nice voice indeed.

Timmy, that was an interesting piece of music; I wonder how the bird singing was made, sounds musical and realistic at the same time.

can anyone explain how to post so that the actual video shows up in the post and not just the link?

also does everyone just post whatever music they find interesting or does it have to be something particular?

Hi Valencia!

You only have to use this function to post videos from Youtube.

And of course you can post whatever you like!!

As far as I know Ronnie Ronalde just has a gift for imitating bird song.
I first got to know this recording when it was featured in the BBC series "The Singing Detective".
I was browsing through my mother's sheet music the other day and found Ketelbey's own piano arrangement which is worth checking out.It's out of copyright and is available online.

Thanks Recaredo! smile

Here is some music from Nina Simone. The first is jazzy but also sounds like Bach:



and here is another of her songs that I love!:

Greetings everyone! It's really great to see RST back to its flow smile I don't get much time or chance to post here often but I try to at least check regularly what's happening in RST. A big thanks and salute to Recaredo, AimeeO and freshers who, in spite of the pressure of their daily works, find time to keep RST alive! Seriously guys, kudos to you all! thumb

I randomly listened to some of the music posted in this page and got really interested. For example, Ronnie Ronalde is one of most amazing artists I've been introduced so far! Thanks a lot Timmy smile I searched for a while to find more about him and found this website containing a big collection of his other recordings (all are freely available in mp3):
http://archive.org/details/RonnieRonalde-01-88

I also loved the Victor Borge Recaredo, thanks smile Looks like I've to collect more of his videos too grin

AimeeO, I got familiar with Sia through this song:

[video:youtube]hSH7fblcGWM[/video]
She has an "interesting" voice indeed. But to me, sometimes she distorts her voice too much.

I'm quite excited today to find about Josef Hofmann who is often considered to be one of the greatest virtuoso pianists of 20th century. Here is one example of his majestic performance of Chopin's Berceuse Op. 57:

Nice to see you Rupak! I hope you’re doing well, man.

Loved Hofmann’s recording. Btw, its sound quality is good, despite the recording was made in 1937.

Hi all!

In this video we can listen to Miah Persson singing "Mitridate Re di Ponto" in Salzburg, she is an outstanding soprano, without a doubt.

And the eternal question: How could a child aged fourteen compose this music? Maybe it's better just enjoying the music than trying to find an answer to such a question wink

Wow timmy! I thought the whistle was someone's voice at first.

I like the Nina, Valencia!

Rupak, I agree with you on Sia. I liked the first thing I heard, but she does seem to wander off a bit. She reminds me of Tori Amos - she started doing the same thing.


Oh I think Recaredo has a crush! She does have an awesome voice, so you are justified.
I wish I could be around more to keep up with posting with you, since Wayne and Rossy are treating us like red-headed stepchildren grin , and griffin's off being retired and everything.



This awful semester of classes will be done August 8. Can. Not. Wait. Nothing makes you want to play more piano than not having time!

I've always loved this soundtrack. Here's the Cincinnati Pops doing the Hymn to Red October.

I guess I should look up what they're singing about.

This movie had great music too. There's actually two musical releases for this movie - both the soundtrack and the score. The soundtrack is solid, and the score just has something about it I love.



I think I went on and on about this one in the past, but I'm going to do it again. I never get tired of this one from A Good Year.

Gorgeous, recaredo!


I love this movement from Beethoven's "Emperor."



I wonder if Ritcher played it?
