Where I start with Berlioz
where can I find this?
Damn I didn't realise it wasn't on the internet; I'll rip it in the next couple days
I still don't get how Sibelius music triggered Adorno so hard. Sibelius just said that people don't erect statues for critics.
probably because Sibelius was really the last romantic composer, composing late romantic music with actual melodies in an era when most composers were composing atonal garbage.
Sibelius is an amazing composerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXgG8yXsE9I
Last night of The Proms tonight lads.
Get those flags out.
Who planned this during the England - Spain football game? Also damn all those EU flags again.
meh, the commissioned piece didn't sound better than a musical number
Girls got some skills, not sure about that jacket though
Is it just me or do operas always sound better in Italian? It just doesn't sound right in English.
You have to adapt the music to the speech melody of the language. Purcell, Handel and Britten wrote oratorios or operas in English, they sound good. Russians managed it too to write operas in Russian language. Italian has the advantage of many words ending in a vocal, so it works pretty well for belcanto operas.
Rewl Brittania, Brittania rules erm, Australia kinda, a couple of small Caribbean islands but not its own country, fuck May
