That is wonderful news about Leonard Cohen's award in Spain, Recaredo. He is so deserving!

Since I have to work part of today, I'm not sure I'll be posting. I'm hoping to get time for a few. However, I will definitely do my Sunday classical postings!

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday everyone!

Hi Wayne! We must have posted at the same time. I'm glad the work on the two Lady Gaga songs are done. Cheers!

I'll look forward to hearing your post a little later. Right now, I'm off to work for a short project!

Afternoon everyone! My project is done, and I have time to do a few postings today. I've been wanting to hear some Andean music, and my favorite Andean group, Rumillajta. I learned that the group disbanded in 2001. However, they leave a treasure trove of great music.

Here is "LEÑO VERDE."

Thanks griffin, fantastic music you posted here. I have listened to Andean music for many years, and play a little myself. Rostosky posted the finest piece of Andean music I have ever heard a while ago, Flight of the Condor. There is no info on Youtube about the group, and I would like very much to have more of that music, if anyone has some info.
Rumillajta is one of the finest groups I have heard, and I see there are more videos on Youtube,

Cubop, I am pleased that you enjoyed the music of Rumillajta. I had the pleasure of hearing them live in a concert here in the 1990s. I loved everything they performed. I've purchased some of their CDs.

Rumillajta (pronounced roo-me-yach-ta) is a Bolivian musical quintet that played at festivals on three continents, according to Wikipedia. They formed in 1980 and became one of the most important progenitors of Andean music. The name means "city of stone" in Quechua. Their music concerns folk themes and nature as well as more political themes like coca, foreign exploitation and indigenous rights. Rumillajta apparently ceased to exist in 2001 after the release of their last CD, Pachakuti.

One additional thing I learned at the concert I attended was that the group also specialized in guitar making.

I remember when Rossy posted Flight of the Condor. That's when we discovered we had a mutual interest in Andean music. It's so nice to find you share this interest! smile

Great posts guys, you all know I love Andean music.. thanks so much beautifull.

I was not going to mention anything about the sadness of Christopher walken at all, in fact I had almost forgotten about his ill advised vocally challenged exploits.
I have been extremely busy and didn't realy have enough time to donate any in Christophers direction.

And then Two things happened almost simultaneously: the first of which was a programme on ABC, First off though this is not THe USA televison,,,


This is Albania broadcasting company, Try and think of it like the BBC , The Albanians do, they love it.

So Albanian radio was playing in the background the other day, whilst Rossy was busy.. Imagine my surprise when they did a review of Christopher walkens singing....

The folks at the ABC just love him, they said his singing invoked visions of angelic hosts, and heaven itself must have sent him. In fact they went as far as saying "when Chris sings we can see he is laying his soul bare"

I was of course extremely surprised, as I believed Albania had moved forward artistically, I was under the impression that they had now heard of electric guitars and sanitation,and had aquired the knowledge of penicillin.


The second thing that happened simultaneously was that MrsR wanted to have a look at the latest christopher walken video on this post...

MrsR has quite good taste, she loves Tom waites and likes Johnny depp, for his good looks and also his uncanny knack of portaying odd characters.conversly she doesn't like Tom cruise because he is 4ft 6 and cannot take a joke.

What she doesnt like ever is when guys leave there socks or shoes on, especially when they are wearing old fashioned mansuspenders for their socks, this she absolutely hates and sometimes it makes her get heartburn or scoriasis.

I must admit that even the squeezing of lady-bumps as done by christopher in the video, did not distract me from his inability to sing, as so obviously intended.
Usually I am totally distracted by said happy puppies.
To obtain a sound like a 1930's singer singing through a megaphone, requires a megaphone or cupped hands or in christophers case, somebody else in a studio doing it for him.
Which adds to the sadness that Albania has yet to recognise.

Like I said, I havent had to much time on my hands lately especially for whining about chris, but I did find a man on google whom I contacted....

His english is excellent for an Albanian, and also he is relatively rich for an Albanian, his income he states as being big enough to support two wives, six daughters three of whom are married with four offspring each, a smallholding with an annual yield of 11 goats (on average precluding bad winters) 2 tons of parsnips, 3 tons of beetroot and a small but dangerous vodka still producing dubious but extremely toxic alcohol which sells for the equivilent of 50cents a pint.

Now he is willing (according to his blog "Make chris come to Albania" to pay to hear chris sing, with vodka and goats.

The saying in Albania is "beggers cannot be choosers of work permits"
So my advice to chris would be to go to Albania, while the offer is still open.

Especially so , as I have no outward bound plans in the direction of Albania in the pipeline personally.

Try and tap dance to this for an hour chris, then see how much the Albanians love you then,,,,,

AH, well I learnt quite a few things, but mostly, that I need to learn a lot more!!
especially in the compression and sidechain department... like when to and when not to, but more importantly the reasoning behind it.
One of the hardest things to do in a music prgramme is to construct something that is slightly "off kilter" say like if you speed up or slow down any for effect or feeling.
Its easy to make things in perfect timing like a robot or like clockwork, this is probably why a lot of music done with music programmes sounds so stiff....
I often go off kilter, and my lad ("techno rossy" and Dj "man verses sofa") obviously with his music (dubstep) works in strict quantisised time, for the clubs.

But, progress is being made albeit slowly... he did say one thing "good riff" which I was pleased about!!

Sorry, this is what young rossy does, he is "man VS sofa" forgot to mention... google will bring up more info....His Roachme.com website is down at the mo, he forgot to pay the yearly charge, just an oversight, forgetfullness....
anyways we may not understand it, but this is apparently dubstep, and loads of work goes into it...

Even little progress is a goood thing, I always think "oh that's easy" then when push comes to shove, is it 'eck, there's always something you didn't account for, at least you realised the complications and are on your way to solving 'em! I wish you the best of luck!

Ah cheers wayne, my work at the moment is I have the piano all done and dusted, and a few other things have been added, the complex bit is getting it so nothing is foggy or murky, in other words, so nothing clouds or obscures anything else..this is the mystery of mysteriousness for me!!
I just want an end result to soon!!

Good evening folks! I hope all is going well. I've been tardy with getting my Sunday classical postings done today. Me and the other half are trying to get furniture moved around in the room we just remodeled. It always takes longer than you think it will! Just like all of us with working on our music! grin

I'll be back in just a few minutes with my classical posts. I must do it now before I'm called to help haul around some other furniture pieces!

Hi Everyone! My first classical Sunday post will be a three-part suite by English composer, Ralph Vaughan Williams, "English Folk Song Suite."

Written in 1923, the English Folk Song Suite is one of Williams's most famous works for military band. The suite consists of three movements: March, Intermezzo and another March, all of which are subtitled with English folk song names. The first march is based upon Seventeen Come Sunday, the Intermezzo upon My Bonny Boy and the final movement on Folk Songs from Somerset.
The suite was originally composed as a four-movement suite, including Sea Songs as the second movement. Its world premiere was given at Kneller Hall on July 4, 1923

This performance is by the London Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Adrian Boult.

My second posting was inspired by an earlier post of Recaredo who posted a beautiful piece composed by Anton Dvorak. I've always loved his "New World Symphony."

Since I may be called back to furniture moving duty at any time, I will simply post the First movement, which is my favorite. It is performed by the Dublin Philharmonic under the direction of Derek Gleeson.

I haven't been called back to furniture moving! I still have time for one more post. I leave you with the Parker String Quartet performing Sting Quartet #1, first movement by Romanian born composer, Gyorgi Ligeti.

Fantastic posts Griffin! I loved the “English Folk Song Suite”. I didn’t know it. Marvellous music, and the version is really good. Adrian Boult was indeed a great conductor.

Thanks for the new video from the Parker String Quartet. They are ever welcome!

About Dvorak, we had to post more about his music. He’s one of my favourite composers. Here we have the first dance from the collection called “Legends”. Although these pieces are less known than the "Slavonic Dances", they are also really beautiful.

Good morning Recaredo. I truly enjoyed your post. I had not heard it before. I'd love to hear more Dvorak. That's another example of why I love this thread. I'll be back shortly with some pop tunes.

Wow hya dudes and dudettes...!!! Musdan just brought up a video from the very beginings of this thread!! Thats dedicated thread reading !!!
Well done Musdan!!!
I remember when I was just a lad, a mere nipper, and I had just started this thread and was unsure of it's direction, well after two world wars and many global catastrophic events here we are, and hasn't the world changed in the meantime?

Gone are the good old days of being able to push pensioners out of the way to get the best seat on a bus, gone are the days of whipping children when they aren't working hard enough, or dont have enough jobs to bring in extra cash.

Its such a strange almost unrecognisable world now, and everything is wrapped up in so much Political corectness beurocracy, that I cannot even have a ciggerette in the mother and baby changing rooms in Asda anymore without someone doing a "false cough"

A "false cough" is what none smokers do when they see a smoker at 56 yards.

This is an annoying trait, I was stood at the bus stop the other day and this lady who was allready there, breathing in the belching diesal fumes of passing lorries with no apparent problem, suddenly starts the "false cough" when she sees me lighting one up.... and it was windy, the wind was blowing the smoke in the opposite direction.... grrrr.

I will go away and have a good think about my next music post....

Hey everybody. Great posts! Sorry I've been absent - been a little under the weather with some sinus thing that everyone at work seemed compelled to share with me. It's sad, as my cough sounds like a true smoker's cough and I was accused of smoking again. Oh, how I miss it! I think if I'm still around in my 70's-80's I'll start back up.

This was in my head yesterday:
