    Ooooohhhh.....I gotta get me a copy of that one. Sir Simon Rattle and the Vienna Philharmonic; Ludwig Van Beethoven, Symphony No. 9, the Choral Symphony, but I didn't get the names of the soloists.

    What with all this discussion about classical music, I'm almost embarrassed to admit I was just listening to I'll Always Love You by Taylor Dayne, from 'way back in 1988.

    No need to be embarrassed, TWD. Campy and I are just simply two aficionados of the classical style, and there is simply just a certain way to identify and speak about the works to which we listen. That was one of Taylor Dayne's best songs BTW. She has a heck of a voice. Now I wonder if you seen this phenomenon.......

    ........that is something, isn't it?

    After seeing that YouTube video, all I can say is: Wow.
    What a voice!! That kid's got talent, all right. Her performance of that Janis Joplin song is proof positive of that!!
    (-That was a song by Ms. Joplin she sang, right? I'm not familiar with her works...)
    I mean, one minute, she's this shy teen-aged girl on stage; the next she practically explodes with energy as she belts out that song!!
    That reminds me of a quote I read once: "To reveal one's self openly and honestly takes the rawest courage." ​ (Author unknown)

    Actually it was an Otis Redding song, but I believe she sang it the way Janis would have done it. Did you see the look on Tyra Banks' face? Wasn't that priceless?

    Yesterday at the Boston Symphony we heard Sukkot Through Orion's Nebula by James Lee III, the first piano concerto of Shostakovich with Yuja Wang as soloist, and three of the six tone poems from Má vlast by Bedřich Smetana.

    I miss going to the Boston Symphony.. It's been so long......Was The Moldau one of the three they played, Campy? I did hear Ma Vlast, on Symphony Hall on SiruisXM radio though just recently.

    Yes, they started with The Moldau, then From Bohemia's Woods and Fields, and ended with the grand finale, Blaník.

    Friday night I went to a concert featuring Rick Wakeman, keyboardist from the English rock band Yes in the 70's. He played a number of songs on the piano (he's a very talented pianist) - his own, as well as songs by David Bowie, Paul McCartney, and others. In between songs, he regaled the audience with some humorous tales from his life and career in music. It was a very enjoyable evening, IMHO. The concert was held at the Arcada Theatre, out in St. Charles, IL, on the banks of the Fox River.

    I remember him. Always loved Tarkus, one heck of a composition. I've taken a break form Classical for a while and m listening now to classic vinyl. I heard a band I had not heard in many years, Mountain. I always liked their stuff.
