Boring? I love Vivaldi's Largo :P

I would recommend the original score though, with a string ensemble. I have to admit I was not impressed with the reduction/modernisation. The Baroque character, which made the piece so charming imo, is completely gone.

I cannot recall the full numbering off the top of my head, but I think the piece is the Largo from Antonia Vivaldi's Concerto for Flute, Strings and (Basso continuo?) in C Major


How sad it is that people like you and I, who strive for more of an HIP interpretation, have to be seen as elitists.

You know, it was said once that Vivaldi could write a concerto faster than you could play one. I can well imagine that a good portion of the people who have heard Vivaldi haven't heard anything else than his concertos.

But, his sacred works are definitely worth mentioning. Here, have a look at my play list of him:

If you go down until you see it says "Vivaldi Magnificat" then you reached the sacred works.

Oh, you two elitist jerks!

I did not say, that I don't like Vivaldi (or dislike his Largo) , I said, that the flute in this piece is boring compared to the pieces in "Die neue Flöte".

Actually, the CD I listend to most frequently in the last two years or so, to the dismay of my family, is Cecilia Bartoli's Vivaldi Album. See, I know more than the 'Le quattro stagioni)'  buck

Hmmm? I was actually referring to the stereotype of the classical music connoisseur who prefers HIP performances. It didn't have anything to do with you, my dear.

Ecstasy. Not sure if it can be called a drug or not, because of how it's affecting me :P

Mstislav Rostropovich plays the Gavotte and Gigue from Bach's Cello Suite No. 6 in D major, BWV 1012. Filmed at the Basilique Sainte Madeleine, Vézelay, Yvonne, France in 1991.

I'm listening to Cziffra play Liszt's Valse Impromptu.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRD5RralCgA

It's a pretty famous recording, and a widely recognized composer and piece, so it shouldn't be huge news to anyone into Romantic piano music.

Don't know why aadoth is looking for NecroMage in this particular thread, but I give you some of my favourite music instead.

Rebekah del Rio - Llorando (Scene from one of the greatest movies of all times, "Mulholland Drive" by David Lynch).

Ah yes, and there's that sentence I always wanted to say: Remember, it's all recorded! :D

Arti, that's my favourite moment from Mulhulland Drive, and one of my favourite scenes from all of cinema. I remember the first time I saw and heard this. Half-way through the song, I was close to tears myself. The shock that followed was almost humiliating. Clever chap, that Lynch guy.

And thanks for the John Denver track, Kalina. Calypso is one of those songs that I know by ear and like, but never knew the name of until today.

Art's piece let me think at one of my favourite singers, Mercedes Sosa. Unfortunately you tube won't show me a good version of Toda Cambio (look for it) , but that one is nice also.

You may like this one also.

Spanish and French definitely are great languages to convey strong emotions, agree with that! :)

Great to hear that you're with me on "Mulholland Drive", Shab! That one blew me really away - just great how well Lynch has put it all together! And there are very few movies that manage to do that. Another great example of a similarly fantastically constructed film is e.g. the classic "Don't Look Now" with Donald Sutherland (Roeg, 1973), where a director manages to really hit you hard that it hurts... No CGI monsters required for that ;)

@Talia: If you like movies where the film only really begins after the film has ended, "Mulholland Drive" is a masterpiece in this respect... Though it's a Lynch film, so be prepared for everything - I guess that one will stay in the mind ;)

On a lighter note, some 60s stuff from "Mulholland Drive" if you feel like dancing:

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
