Quote from: Sergeant Rock on July 27, 2021, 08:34:24 AMIt's considered one of Verdi's best. The fault lies with me, I guess.Sarge
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on July 27, 2021, 08:53:47 AMMust admit: the 1812 I only really enjoy hearing once a year--on the Fourth of July.
Quote from: Brian on July 27, 2021, 08:56:41 AMThe best time I've ever heard it was on the 14th of July, Bastille Day - in Paris - coming from someone's open house window. Presumably not someone with a history degree - or maybe it was the Russian embassy!

Quote from: Brian on July 27, 2021, 11:05:49 AMOh, see, I prefer the cow on the roof to the creation of the world. But there's always a dissenter
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on July 27, 2021, 09:59:20 AMWell, I'd argue that the *Grieg piano concerto is absolutely beautiful--that and Vaughan Williams' Lark. Yes, it's (the pc), big ole Romantic, but for me, it just sweeps me along. *Some favorite recordings: Andsnes, Lupu, CurzonPD
Quote from: Florestan on July 27, 2021, 11:15:10 AMSometimes even two! Le boeuf sur le toit is a masterpiece of sunny&funny music. The real dissenters here are the doom&gloom brigade...

Quote from: Florestan on July 27, 2021, 11:32:18 AMAll jokes aside, John my dear friend, I really love Le boeuf sur le toit. Unfailingly melodious, infectiously rythmical, always puts a smile on my face, has been a earworm ever since I first heard it --- right up my alley.
Quote from: Mirror Image on July 27, 2021, 11:38:31 AMI'm all for jovial and good-spirited music, but this work just has never done anything for me, but to each their own of course.
Quote from: Florestan on July 27, 2021, 12:04:10 PMOf course, John!What are the best five jovial and good-spirited works that you would recommend me?
