Bach - Goldberg Variations - Glenn Gould

OK, Bach is over, it's now Eric Gales (the reincarnated Jimi Hendrix)

I am listening to my new cd. Napa Valley ---A Romantic Journey
The songs are sentimental orchestrations of Great American Songbook Classics by Mancini, Gershwin , Carmichael, Gordon, and Miller

First of all, I would like to point out, in my defence, that I have diverse musical tastes.

With that in mind I shall tell you that I have been enjoying:

1) The Best of REM

2) Erm, slightly embarrassing but..Guns 'n Roses, Appetite for Destruction. :oops: :oops:

OK, I know, but it takes me back to my younger days :wink: :)

Sto ascoltando Antonio Vivaldi e il suo concerto per flauto traverso in re maggiore, Il Gardellino (The Goldfinch) :)

Well. so do I. When I first got interested in music i used to listen to Radio Luxemburg, because the BBC used to play music that was really a pain in the butt for a young lad like me. One of the first records I heard was by Ray Charles - I think it was Hide Nor Hair, not one of his best known - and I've been a fan of Brother Ray ever since.

The 60s saw the soul explosion (Otis, Ben E King, Solomon Burke, Wilson Pickett, and so on and on and ariston), while over here there was a really vibrant R&B scene, the Stones originally being an R&B group. Then I found Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, and have admired their work immensely. Both in their inimitable ways reached out and touched the heart. Sadly the Man in Black is no longer with us, but Willie is still here with that oh-so-deeply dark chocolate voice of his.

I missed out on the 80s (they were not particularly musical!!) but in 1990 saw the live tv presentation of the Three Tenors at Caracalla, just before the final of Italia 90. Inevitably Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo became firm favourites. Then came Andrea. It was only by chance that I caught A Night In Tuscany on tv and just had to buy it. As Zucchero has said, Andrea sings from the soul, and it was Maggie's and my great pleasure to see Andrea in his debut UK concert in Hyde Park, courtesy of my brother as a 25th wedding anniversary present. Don't mind admitting that there were a few tears - particularly when he sang E Lucevan Le Stelle. Ho pensato che fosse morto and fosse andato in Paradiso!! :D

"Songs of Greece", in Greek, by a group called Glendi.
Prior to that it was "With Love from Greece" sung by Agnes Baltsa with the Athens Experimental Orchestra / Dir. Stavros Xarhakos. One of my favorites.

Alla biblioteca (dove lavoro io) c'è un sito web molto fico. Suona musica classica - ci sono decine di compositori. In questo momento sto ascoltando Respighi - il suo quintetto per il piano! Bellissimo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
