Trans-Siberian Orchestra's take on Johann Pachelbel's famous Canon. There are two versions of this - this version and a newer rock version (electric guitars and a female voice instead of a children's choir)

Been watching our televised New Years Day Convert live from Vienna 2022, and just stated conductor Daniel Barenboim's age of 80...i have to admit he looks marvelous for his age...They also done an air tour around Vienna whilst playing music, and it was breathtakingly stunning...

Leo P - BBC Proms - Amazing - Audience Reaction

MarsGal

That was fun to watch. Never heard of Leo P.

so_P_bubble

A soul-stirring finale to one of the greatest symphonies of all time. Let the wings of Gustav Mahler's Second Symphony carry you onward in triumph.

He's been a part of a couple different bands in New York. Probably best known for this performance of "Funkytown" with Lucky Chops. Very talented guy.


Oldiesmann

Harpo Max playing Franz Lizst's famous "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2" on the harp from the 1946 film A Night in Casablanca. This is quite impressive when you consider this piece was written for piano.

MarsGal

Darn, my computer sound disappeared on my yesterday evening. I did a few checks, but so far, no good. Today I am going to check the cables (better light in the daytime), replace my speakers, and whatever I else I can find. If I can't figure it out, it means a trip to the computer repair show. 

so_P_bubble

Fantastic!  What a talent.

so_P_bubble

The sound on this link would not play for me either, so I went to watch it on U-tube.

MarsGal

Oh super, the sound works now. I restarted the computer yesterday after redownloading the driver. I guess it needed to be shut down entirely. It works just fine now, and I didn't really do anything yet except get into the old control panel and check the settings.

Oldiesmann

Beethoven's 5th Symphony gets the major league sports treatment courtesy of Peter Shickele (aka P.D.Q. Bach). I'm not sure who the other commentator is (Peter Shickele is the guy on the left).

Andre Rieu - Concert Israel, Tel Aviv - 2018

https://youtu.be/j5rxWTjwXJc

Oldiesmann

The famous 18th variation from Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini as performed by legendary guitarist Duane Eddy. This became popular under the title "The Story of Three Loves" after the Harmonicats recorded it with that title in the early 1950s.

Oldiesmann

Fun from the always talented Red Ingle. This is known as "Pagan Ninny's Keep 'er Goin' Stomp" and is credited to Paganini, Rossini and Mellorini (whoever that is). This was released in 1947. I'm not sure which classical pieces it quotes other than a small part of "Barber of Seville". I would assume Ingle himself is playing violin but the label credits "Niccolo Piu Noodnik"

I don't get to listen to classical music much and have almost forgotten how relaxing and calming it can be! 8)

Leroy Anderson --- another of my old Fav's. Somewhere around here I have two of his LPs, ----- but sadly no turn table to play them on.  When Arthur Feidler and The Boston Pops was on TV in this area I rarely missed it.  Music of all types is great.

An interesting take on Liszt's famous "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2" from 1958


Oldiesmann

A fun take on Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King". This is from one of several "Stereo Action" albums RCA Victor produced to show off the new technology of stereophonic sound (and thereby convince consumers to buy their stereo hi fi equipment).


MarsGal

Interesting take on the Hungarian Rhapsody, sounds kind of Bossa Nova which I like.

My contribution for the day.Two of my favorites, classical and cats.
