You know, my experience with many of you is that you are MULTI-DIMENSIONAL men, very complex....who have a lustier side but also a very sensitive, caring, inspirational side.

BALANCE is the key to MENTAL HEALTH and PHYSICAL WELL-BEING. Life, after all, is not ALL about DEATH....LIFE consists of LIFE, too !!!

One of my GREAT PASSIONS is MUSIC...classical symphonies, classical piano (which I have studied and performed), the opera and musical "BROADWAY" works.

To this end, I am creating "ArrowMan's MUSICAL CORNER"..... and my first
link is to a stirring song for all .... regarding the dawn of a better day..."for LOOK, a NEW DAY has BEGUN ! "

From the Broadway musical "CATS"..... Barbara Streisand sings "MEMORIES" (as no one else ever has and EVER can), which I dedicate to a most special person who has forever changed my life for the better:

"I'LL BE SEEING YOU"
sung best by the unforgettable Rosemary Clooney.
It was written during World War Two, for the many whose lovers went off to the war, many never to return again.

We need to be mindful of this side of war as well, which has no glory in it,
but only tragedy and loss. :sm (41): :sm (41):

I am including several versions, the first sung by Rosemary Clooney with the romantic yet sad verses showing .. then the next sung by the artist herself during a filmed live performance.

Nearly every vocal artist of high standing has performed this work, and it is taught to nearly every professional vocal student, though few can perform it as movingly as Rosemary Clooney does here.


"
I'll be seeing you in every lovely summer's day
in everything that's light and gay, I'll ALWAYS think of you that way
I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you."

Storms enter all of our lives, turbulent times, times of tempest. Look at Ludwig van Beethoven, a MAESTRO composer and pianist.

THEN, then....the PERFECT STORM, he went deaf !

Yet he perservered and brought order to this utter disaster....composing this virile work,
The Tempest Sonata, in 1801 shortly after he had become entirely deaf.

Amazing...I often listen to it when I am troubled and despairing, knowing that hurt and pain comes to all of us, even the greatest. And yet, despite it all, we must never give up, ever !

I now present the majestically powerful, hauntingly moving:

Tempest Sonata No. 17, Opus 31 No. 2 in D minor, Mvt. III..Allegretto
by Ludwig van Beethoven as performed by the one and only Wilhelm Kempff:

Oh wow! I used to love this song! I haven't heard it for so long. I've always loved the line "The soul afraid of dying that never learns to live". Now I know the rest! Thanks Arrow but it breaks my heart to hear it and I got all watery eyed too!

I love your musical corner Arrow. This reminds me of a song I discovered while searching for possible videos of that hunk from JAG that died so young Trevor Godard. I came across this moving tribute to his memory. It so totally broke my freaking heart that I fell in love with the sad song they use in it. I love when the rest of the cast sings it to him at the end. "Waltzing Matilda"

Thanks for this inspiring thread, Arrow.
Some of the most uplifting and inspiring music I know is by Libby Roderick - especially the anthem 'How could anyone', written (I've heard, specially for gay men).
HOW COULD ANYONE EVER TELL YOU
YOU WERE ANYTHING LESS THAN BEAUTIFUL?
HOW COULD ANYONE EVER TELL YOU
YOU WERE LESS THAN WHOLE?
HOW COULD ANYONE FAIL TO NOTICE
THAT YOUR LOVING IS A MIRACLE?
HOW DEEPLY YOU’RE CONNECTED TO MY SOUL.

I've got the CDs, haven't got any download links, but her website is http://www.libbyroderick.com/
'Cradle of Dawn' is also one of my favourite songs - absolutely beautiful music and lyrics

My friends,

Yes, again I wish to share with you the most beautiful classical themes that will stir your inner-being to the very CORE.

Last Sunday on November 8, 2009, I shared with you Beethoven's masterwork aka the "Tempest Piano Sonata" and his soaring"Impassionata Piano Sonata."

Today, I share with you a masterwork that lifts me UP and UP HIGHER still...into the snow-capped mountains, beyond that, up into the clouds, then clear blue sky beyond and ultimately the very UNIVERSE itself in all of its mystery and GLORY.

I now present to you.....Richard Wagner's stellar
"Overture to Tannhauser" .. performed by Maestro Herbert von Karajan conducting the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Following this, I present The Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing this same masterwork, when sung called "The Pilgrim's Chorus."

Finally, this masterwork sung with towering scenes from our Earth and the Skies Above !


I could listen to this grand, inspiring masterwork DAY and NIGHT, NIGHT and DAY ! The POWER, the MAJESTY, the BEAUTY, the GALLANTRY and BOLDNESS it heralds forth is both fervently and heroically OVERWHELMING !


"Overture to Tannhauser" .. Part 1:

Frederic Chopin's Polonaise in A flat Major, Opus 53 ... called the "Heroic Polonaise" because it is so stirring. Here it is performed by the legendary Maestro Vladimir Horowitz.

This work is technically very demanding, as I have learned from performing it myself. Yet it always leaves me at the grand finale feeling most thrilled and highly exalted.

I cordally invite you to listen and discover the exhilarating reason.

I've not seen or listened to many operas all way thru, but have many pts to like. The first one I saw live was Motzart's "Magic Flute". 8-9th row center,by pure chance. Was totally amazing! Esp. a part where a female lead seemed to make her voice into, well, sound balls, popping them out w/ glorious strength and clarity. Being so close was mesmerizing. There was nothing that seemed old or stuffy. I'd recomend to everybody. Has anyone else been to performance?

"..from out Chicago way..."
:winner::winner::winner:

http://t.imgbox.com/advt1HeB.jpg (http://imgbox.com/advt1HeB)

From the hit WW2 era
1941 Abbott and Costello film
"Buck Privates."
Sung by the unforgettable ANDREWS SISTERS

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTrx8jgpvBk

"He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
He's in the army now, a-blowin' reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

They made him blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam
It really brought him down because he couldn't jam
The captain seemed to understand
Because the next day the cap' went out and drafted a band
And now the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddelyada-toot
He blows it eight-to-the-bar, in boogie rhythm
He can't blow a note unless the bass and guitar is playin' with 'im
He makes the company jump when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

He was our boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
And when he plays boogie woogie bugle he was busy as a 'bzzz' bee
And when he plays he makes the company jump eight-to-the-bar
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

Toot-toot-toot, toot-diddelyada, toot-diddelyada
Toot, toot, he blows it eight-to-the-bar
He can't blow a note if the bass and guitar isn't with 'im
A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

[Instrumental interlude]

He puts the boys asleep with boogie every night
And wakes 'em up the same way in the early bright
They clap their hands and stamp their feet
Because they know how he plays when someone gives him a beat
He really breaks it up when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

Da-dah-da-dah-da
Da-dah-da-da-dah-da
Da-dah-da-da-da

A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
He's the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B!"

'Twas down where the blue grass grows.
Your lips were sweeter than julep,

Ah ArrowMan I see we have very similar tastes in music , Wagner is fantastic and one of my favorite composers, I love Der Ring Des Nibelungen and nearly all his works , he is thought to be the first to introduce the Leitmotif or Theme although I prefer Cue to introduce individual character and has been used effectively even in Dr Who at poignant moments . you have posted links to the overture to Tanhauser which is great but I also like the Pilgrims chorus from the same , here is a link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUm_T_a8_Ok
Another favorite in the vein of Rienzy is The Radetsky , which of coarse you are expected to clap along with as per
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHFf7NIwOHQ
And another of my favorites but possibly not so well know by Pietro Mascagni , and this is my favorite rendition
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OvsVSWB4TI
And last, one to stir the possum and no doubt will cause some flack http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxYcTKcWrIw
Time to leave before the flack starts but seriously thanks heaps , i had not listened to some of your suggestions for quite some time and i found them very refreshing indeed, a shame it took me so long to discover this thread. All the best and keep them coming.

My piano teacher friend (no, I'm not taking lessons from him!) and I are doing 2 movements from Dave Brubeck's Points On Jazz piece - A La Turk, and Rag - in May at his house that he puts on every year for his musical friends. There are a few performers, some soloists, and some playing duets. There might even be a guitar player. We just rehearsed this past weekend and it's finally coming together! For those of you who don't know, Dave Brubeck died recently in his 90's. He was a genius in unconventional time signatures.

A great piece of music but unfortunately not by Albinoni. Also the style is not baroque, possibly late nineteenth century. The actual composer is one giazotto. an Italian musicologist. And whilst Karajan has many virtues as a conductor if not as a human being, particularly in his pre Berlin days with the Philharmonia, he manages to reduce the adagio to mere mush. He does the same to bach's famous Air as well.

To hear this music at its best try Neville Marriner or I musici. I guess there are other versions on you tube but the site is currently unobtainable. But please avoid Karajan.

And if you want something similar try Nardini's E Minor violin Concerto, Peter Ryber's version is on You tube.

Enjoy

Actually if you want to hear some really beautiful genuine Albinoni try his Oboe Concerto Op9 no2 - the slow movement is really lovely. There should be various versions on You tube.

it puts the pastiche giazotti into the shade.

I am well aware of the controversy as to who composed "Adagio in G minor." Thank you for the further erudition.

Maestro Neville Marriner is a superb conductor and thank you for this stellar recommendation.

I am not that familiar with Pietro Nardini. He must have been an exquisite 18th century violinist.

Which of his limited compositions do you enjoy the most, my erudite mate ?

ArrowMan,

I had never been a fan of classical symphonies as in opera, however I listen to symphonic metal, which some class as metal opera, also I had a fortunate encounter with this guy who used classical music and other genres to help with his torturous BDSM sessions and I found the experience to be very educational:-

Pain and music goes very well used as a psychological weapon.
eg, playing burning down the house and then threatening person with cigarette burn or a lighter.

Also I have added his trick of making the person breath in pain to the rhythm of the music.

I am hoping I am giving you are some nasty ideas to work with.:horny::drool:

"Lucky, lucky, lucky me, I'm a lucky son of a gun" is a very popular hit from the 1950s. We still hear it here in the USA many times, especially in better Italian restaurants and especially here in Chicagoland. It has Italian roots, is very full of zest and spirit, and it is also used a lot in TV ads here, too, for various products, mostly Italian food and again restaurants.

I like the lyrics and the melody, a lot of fun.
