    The "Dirty Dancing" soundtrack (I won't tell how many times I've watched that movie.) has so many great songs on it. This is just one of them.

    If ever the famous Big Bang from which everything originated had needed music to accompany it, it probably would have been such a stunning piece.

    Thanks. I really like Mendelssohn. What a travesty that he wasn't played in Germany for decades.

    What country is this?



    Translation in English

    In the slums, in the Senate
    Dirt in every corner
    Nobody respects the Constitution
    But everybody believes in the nation's future
    What country is this?
    What country is this?
    What country is this?
    In the Amazonas, in the Araguaia, in the Baixada Fluminense
    In Mato grosso, in Minas Gerais and in the Northeast it's just peace
    In death I rest but the blood runs loose

    Staining the papers, faithful documents
    For the boss's rest
    What country is this?
    What country is this?
    What country is this?
    What country is this?

    It's anything but Third World

    A joke overseas
    But Brazil will get rich
    We'll bill a million
    When we sell all the souls
    Of our natives in an auction
    What country is this?
    What country is this?
    What country is this?
    What country is this?

    Original Lyrics

    Nas favelas, no senado
    Sujeira
    pra todo lado
    Ninguém
    respeita a constituição
    Mas todos acreditam no futuro da nação
    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?
    No Amazonas, no Araguaia, na Baixada fluminense
    No Mato grosso, Minas Gerais e no Nordeste tudo em paz
    Na morte eu descanso mas o sangue anda solto

    Manchando os papéis, documentos fiéis

    Ao descanso do patrão

    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?

    Terceiro Mundo se for

    Piada no exterior
    Mas
    o Brasil vai ficar rico
    Vamos faturar um milhão

    Quando vendermos todas as almas
    Dos nossos índios num leilão
    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?
    Que país é esse?
    “Às vezes ouço passar o vento; e só de ouvir o vento passar, vale a pena ter nascido”.
    Fernando Pessoa

    @Angela, surely the fact of being of Jewish origin weighed, but also a certain useless and gratuitous criticism towards him, accused of being substantially a conservative, an author little innovative or even superficial in comparison with his other contemporaries of age romantic.
    In reality he has had so many merits, including being the most important rediscoverer of Bach and reconciling the baroque / classical musical forms with the new romantic language.
    You can enjoy a refinement and delicacy in his compositions - real bijoux - which is difficult to find in other authors. Thus he himself declared:

    "People often complain that music is too ambiguous, that what they should think when they hear it is so unclear, whereas everyone understands words. With me, it is exactly the opposite, and not only with regard to an entire speech but also with individual words. These, too, seem to me so ambiguous, so vague, so easily misunderstood in comparison to genuine music, which fills the soul with a thousand things better than words. The thoughts which are expressed to me by music that I love are not too indefinite to be put into words, but on the contrary, too definite."

    I can only agree :)

    Hence why I like his music so much, more than many of the "Romantic" composers.

    I'm sure what you're saying is true in a general sense outside of Nazi Germany, but he, like other Jewish composers, and like Jewish artists, was banned, not just criticized, and it was indeed because he was Jewish.

    Such stupidity. Music, the visual arts, literature, as well as science, have no "race" or "ethnicity"; they are the flowering of human genius and should only be celebrated.

    When the Jewish orchestra at Theresienstadt wanted to convey their horror and grief at what was happening to them and to their compatriots all over Europe they chose Verdi's Requiem.

    The theatrical trailer from the documentary called: The Defiant Requiem:


    Starving, abused, terrified people found a voice, comfort, and strength in the music of an Italian Catholic. That's what the arts are all about. It's heartbreaking and inspirational all at the same time.
