I love that movie you were great in it to be honest.lol. I have read a lot of
things about Mozart. Where did they get the laughing almost foolish side
of him? Is this just Hollywood?

I recommend my letters, particularly the ones to my niece. I am extremely childish and have my whole life long fooled most people with that behavior. Inside I am a much more serious guy. I find that film in a satisfying way very accurate. Particularly the music they chose illustrates the darker,more dramatic side .

Default Arnold Bax ( 1883-1953 )

I always was extremely fond of the music of Arnold Bax ,an English composer. Untypically dark and dramatic in style for a British composer he created some of he most searing post romantic music in the 20th century. It depicts very often Ireland,celtic legends and the far North of the British Isles. It's essentially very nostalgic music.His music reminds me also of a very happy time of my life when living in his country and following his trail.
Here is a rather unknown piece by him ,but it always was my favorite:
the symphonic poem "In Memoriam". It refers to Patrick Pearse and the surrounding events. Patrick Pearse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Take the 14 minutes it takes to listen to this evocative masterpiece,it's worth it,particularly when arriving at the glorious recap around 10.50 onwards !

Default Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio!

Despite being a seasoned musician myself and having performed many of his works I regularly fail when trying to describe the beauty of Mozart's music. It seems somehow impossible. A friend of mine ,an eminent musicologist and analyst admitted that he avoids Mozart. "It's perfect. And perfection is so hard to take apart.No point really " So I leave it then. But I have provided a translation so that one knows what on earth is going on.

Kathleen Battle sings "Vorrei spiegarvi, o Dio!" - LIVE! - YouTube

I would like to explain to you, oh God,
what my grief is!
Fate , however condemns me
to weep and keep silent.
My heart may not pine
for the one I would like to love
making me apparently hard-hearted
and cruel.
Alas, Count, part from me,
run, flee
far away from me;
your beloved
Emilia awaits you,
don't keep her languishing,
she is worthy of love.
Alas, pitiless stars!
You are hostile to me.
I am lost when he stays.
Part from me, run,
do not talk about love,
her heart is yours.

Kathleen Battle/Karajan - Voices of Spring 1987 Vienna New Year's Concert - YouTube

I was so very impressed with the soprano Battle, that I looked her up and found this song. I must admit I've never been very fond of soprano voice as a main focus in a song, until now. A spectacular sound to lift us out of the ordinary!

Default La ci darem la meno

Welcome to voice heaven !! Mozart was one of the greatest opera composers of all times. Here is one of his most beautiful Duets , one of the great miracles of music.If I had 3.15 left to live,I would spend it listening to that duet.Sung by Kathleen Battle and Placido Domingo.

Default Pure voice

There was hardly anybody that had a more crystal clear and hauntingly beautiful voice than Gundula Janowitz. It fitted particularly the songs of Franz Schubert ,which are intimate and need a kind of modesty in approach. Schubert's music approaches the listener like a friend,that particular quality I always found special and unique. That Schubert wrote over 700 songs ( amongst over 1000 works altogether ) in only 31 years lifetime is remarkable.
Here is a rather unknown song by Schubert: "Der Fluss" ( "The River" ).
This particular recording is in my opinion one of the highlights of Schubert singing.
Gundula Janowitz - Schubert "Der Fluss" live1972 - YouTube

(English translation,poem by Friedrich von Schlegel )

Like a pure song that winds itself
through the wonderful sound of strings playing,
finding itself again
as the tunes switch back and forth
so that the listeners are always newly delighted;

So the silvery bulk flows with dignity,
winding like a snake
through swaying bushes
sweetly and magically entranced
to find themselves mirrored;

Where hills and bright clouds
like to melt themselves into softly vibrating images
when the distant, faint stars
rise from the blue depths
and the sun lowers its intoxicated eyes.

So shine all creatures,
like silhouettes in the childlike mind,
which is selected for beauty
by the gentle goodness of the Gods,
and in which fleeting blossoms are preserved in crystal.

Default Swinging Bach

After all that heavy Schubert here some fun. I don't know what more to admire: the incredible talent of the Swingle Singers or the fact that Bach's music sounds fresher than ever more than 300 years after he was born.

and here is the Original,it ain't bad either. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20tau1ngCtY
