    This seems like a suitable song for December 21.

    Regards Adele and Skyfall, it and Rolling in the Deep are my two favourites from her..

    Thanks for that. It is another (Lully) very pleasant one and to my liking Hope. I like classic Music with a punch. Heard a few more of Lully and defiantly (Like Vivaldi) there is something in the sequence that works well on my mood......................Oh.. I cannot stop Listening to Lully......

    Rolling in the Deep is another awesome number from Adele I agree.

    December is also Dvorak month in New York.

    Here is the Dvorak Cello Concerto with Yo Yo Ma and the New York Philharmonic. (He is a very emotional and expressive performer, by the way...and warm and engaging in real life as well...another stereotype bites the dust!)

    Thank you for posting Angela. Surely that is some Talent from Yo Yo Ma. Without so much emotion those notes cannot sound so perfect and expressive. What a beautiful instrument the cello is

    It seemed apropos for New Year's Day: It's A New Dawn, It's a New Day, It's a New Life For Me and I'm Feeling Good-Michael Bublé
    Plus, I love him. :)

    New Year's Eve was all about dancing, and there were a lot of Michael Bublé romantic songs playing. (I seem to be traveling in a "set" that's doing a lot of "slow dancing" lately. No cracks, if you please.

    Now, I'm a dyed in the wool romantic, and despite all the evidence to the contrary still a bit of an idealist when it comes to love, but I have to admit that when this song was playing I kept on thinking how it could double as a profile on some internet dating sites. What a playbook for an unscrupulous man. Women generally just eat this stuff up, no matter how often they've been burned, in my experience. Appropriate as a wedding song chosen by a twenty year old bride perhaps, but a little too much for me.

    That''s all:

    Very nice, just what I needed this morning. The contrasts of Fortes and Pianos and constant base rhythm sound awesome (to me at least)

    Great description of a chaconne, and a passacaglia for that matter.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaconne
    A chaconne (/ʃəˈkɒn/; French: [ʃakɔn]; Spanish: chacona; Italian: ciaccona, pronounced [tʃakˈkoːna]) is a type of musical composition popular in the baroque era when it was much used as a vehicle for variation on a repeated short harmonic progression, often involving a fairly short repetitive bass-line (ground bass) which offered a compositional outline for variation, decoration, figuration and melodic invention. In this it closely resembles the passacaglia.

    They were danced to, for obvious reasons...

    After the Baroque it went into a bit of a decline as a music form, but a lot of twentieth and twenty first century composers have brought it back.

    Two of my favorite chaconnes:

    Moneverdi's Zefiro Torna



    Bach's Violin Partita in D Minor (This is actually one of my favorite pieces of music ever...)

    Finnish viking folk metal. I know guys, but I just had to ^^

    The fiddle sounds similar to the Cajun french music we have here. I'm amazed at how similar old Scandinavia and Louisiana used to be.

    Jussi Bjorling "Bella figlia dell'amore" from Verdi's Rigoletto. (It was featured in the English movie "Quartet" which I just watched last night, and which is about retired singers and musicians putting on a Verdi Gala. It has a great cast, by the way, including Maggie Smith and also some bona fide elderly opera singers. It's a very sweet movie, but oh dear, how I dread the idea of getting that old...of course, the alternative isn't so great either!)

    Anyway, this Jussi Bjorling version is one of my favorites. It's just stupendously beautiful. Ironic but true that this Swede was one of the greatest "Italianate" tenors ever to grace the stage. He's at his best here...the tone...the phrasing...my god, the breath control...he seems to have superhuman lung capacity. When I hear untrained singers drawing these rasping breaths all over the place I want to throw a slipper or something!

    Here are the lyrics for the section starting at 1:58. Does anything ever change? Ah, the perfidy of men!

    DUKE
    Fairest daughter of love,
    I am a slave to your charms;
    with but a single word you could
    relieve my every pain.
    Come, touch my breast and feel
    how my heart is racing.

    MADDALENA
    Ah! Ah! That really makes me laugh;
    talk like that is cheap enough.
    Believe me, I know exactly
    what such play?acting is worth!
    I, my fine sir, am quite accustomed
    to foolish jokes like this.

    GILDA
    Ah, these are the loving words
    the scoundrel spoke once to me!
    O wretched heart betrayed
    do not break for sorrow.

    RIGOLETTO
    to Gilda
    Hush weeping can do no good...
    You are now convinced he was lying.
    Hush, and leave it up to me
    to hasten our revenge.
    It will be quick, it will be deadly,
    I know how to deal with him.

    Listen to me, go home.
    Take some money and a horse,
    Put on the men's clothes I provided,
    then leave at once for Verona.
    I shall meet you there tomorrow.
