    It just happens that I have some of his violin concertos. Don't listen to it frequent enough to say that I really like Bruch. The most listened to piece is Four Seasons, then Requiem by Mozart.
    Mine has to be "An Armed Man, A Mass for Peace (Carl Jenkins sp.?) followed by Adagio for Strings (Barber).

    Which opera is that lot from? :rolleyes:

    it's possibly the best known aria from the opera it's taken from. O was listening to it today. I'll give you a clue - the character who sings it is Leporello,

    sorry, I generally like the various trends in the late nineteenth century but some of these minor composers wrote a load of shite.

    That's ok, opinions are good. To be honest i don't really like Bruch either.

    there's only one Bruch violin concerto. I'm not that big on Vivaldi - not really my sort of thing. I'm more of a bach man.

    music boy - i will have you know i am very highly qualified in italian. i have an Entry Level Certificate in Business Language Competence y'know.

    however as opera is not business in this sense i am unable to help you. i will merely say, i tuoi capelli sono brutti!

    and if its wrong, dont blame me, blame some random italian on a train

    I probably should get a dose of barber sometime....

    Consider that bit in Pulp Fiction where Vincent is buying heroin from Lance.

    Lance: This is called Mozart... It's real good ****. That is Beethoven, it's also good ****... Now that last one, it's a mad man. This is Vivaldi. The first cost you the same £300 per track. The last one, cost you £500 per track. But, when you listen to it, you'll know where the extra money went...

    what's not to get? It's a story and for some reason everyone sings everything instead of talking normally.

    You really like Bruch? Why? What is wrong with you?
    I was going to take offence then, and ask what is wrong with the second meal of the day, but then I realised you were talking about music not brunch

    Also I had more passport photo type things done today, so I put one up in my profile so you'll all be able to recognise my mug (NB, I've had a hair cut since meeting Rosie)

    I'm sure he has more than one, otherwise it won't be needing 2 CDs to record. Either I remember it wrong, or you remembered it wrong... I probably remember the names wrong, well.

    Bach's not bad but i not too picky, i'll go for most classical. Some of the Prokofiev (sp.?) i've heard is good too. I love "The Barber of Seville" too.

    That means I'll have understand what they are singing in order to understand the story... My brain just can't be bothered to interpret those sound. Too much work and my head is only a 266MHz not some P4 3.2GHz.
