I watched Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech today.  Towards the end of it, he quotes from the lyrics of the following song, which is performed live by members of the USAF.  At least I am pretty sure that they are the only branch with the rank technical sergeant.  Obviously these musicians, being in desert BDUs, are deployed somewhere desert-like in this performance.

About one minute into this, is a sad piece from Master & Commander (a movie I own and love), where the guy falls with the main mast, and has to be cut loose to save the ship.  Some of the best classical music in this movie, but when Russell Crowe plays violin, it's not very accurate, from my little knowledge of music.  Super sound production on the movie.  I love watching it projected on a 106" screen now with surround sound in my home.

And what's even more sad is that embedding has been removed from the clip.  Let's try this one:

Not the same piece, but more lively video anyway.

Ugh, sorry, but whenever I hear Seattle, I think Seattlelite, then I think Planet Claire, bwahaahaa!

Well, I've resisted the temptation to post here long enough.  In the early 1960's I visited a friend of the family in New York City who not only had a Hi Fi but a real STEREO!  High end McIntosh amplifier with incredible Acoustic Research speakers - we're talking state of the art and many thousands of dollars.  I'd never seen or heard anything like it.  He was a rather eclectic sort of fellow and had all kinds of music.  To demonstrate the thundering base response of his system he played  Bach's Toccatta & Fugue in D minor performed by E. Power Biggs on the Flentrop Organ. The whole house shook.  I've been hooked ever since.  There is nothing compared watching a pipe organ played by a master.  In the case of Bach, both hands and both feet are in perpetual flight, each playing a separate melody.  E. Power Biggs and Helmut Walcha are my favorite artists on the pipe organ. 

The first video is Bach's Toccata & Fugue in D minor played by E. Power Biggs - the exact same recording I first heard in New York.

Here's Bachs Toccata & Fugue in F major played by Walcha:

Both of these artists are dead and gone but their mastery lives on through recordings like these.

Oh, I love Bach and Vivaldi - Nigel Kennedy is probably not eating well but I love him all the same...

Lovely Nicola.  I like Nigel as well.  If you like chamber music and string quartetts you'll really enjoy the Quartetto Italiano.  Old group from the 1960's -70's that play Motzart, Beethoven, Ravel etc and every piece is flawless.

Another passion of mine is rag-time and stride piano which I attempt to play (poorly) but love it none the less.

Johann Sebastian Bach is my favorite composer!  One of my favorites is kommst du nun jesu vom himmel herunter with organ and trumpet.  Now, some people like the trumpet an octave lower than this version, but I disagree.  I guess it's because it makes it harder to sing to.  But I just love the trumpet soaring like a bird over the organ, myself.  (Sound quality not the best.)

Love the cat avatar  ;)

E Power Biggs did Giovanni Gabrieli's "The Glory of Gabrielli" and it is pipe organ with a brass ensemble and choir.  It is a beautiful work if you can find it.

With all this classycal talk I'm sure the readership of the forum is plummeting. ???

Love the Harp.  My daugher likes it so much that she decided to forgo the organ and have a Harp play the traditional wedding marches at her wedding.  It worked out wonderfully well.
