Topic: La Campanella by Liszt and Paganini. Are you CRETINS cultured enough to appreciate this?

I didn't create this thread.  But I could easily have done so. I am the first person to bring classical music to the redboards.  I'm glad an imitator has taken up the baton and decided to run with it.  Some good choices (as well as some plagiarised ones from my threads).  :thumbup:

We should have more cultured threads in this otherwise barren SHITHEAP of a site. :
\
:snob:

To that end, I shall put forward this:




Interesting fact: I stood behind James Galway in the checkout queue at Kroger in Birmingham, Michigan, one Sunday night in 1995.  He was buying a bottle of whiskey but didn't know that American credit/debit cards should be placed directly in card readers, instead of being handed to the cashier, as was done in more civilised countries at that time.  I smiled at him, and he smiled back, unsure if I knew who he was.  I did know: the best flautist in the world.

Okay, time to up the ante. As much as it grieves me, the best classical composers were French. 

Behold.

Study Russian history, the poor bastards have really been through hell the past 200 years.

Both Liszt and Paganini were accused of having sold their souls to the devil to acquire their virtuosity because of incredibly good this piece was.

Remember back in 1995 when credit cards were placed into the card reader and there would be an original piece of paper with carbon paper in front of another piece of paper in the back? The person making the charge would place the credit card in the holder and swipe it back and forth making an imprint on the paper below the carbon paper.

­Very nice! I have seldom heard any flutist even approach the mastery of Jean Pierre Rampal. I believe Galway does here.

A flatulist?

­I think this is a nice piece but the repetition of the top note grates at my musical sensibilities.

:mccain:

It might be OK if it were actually played on a piano that was tuned better for that note. On too many pianos those higher notes aren't tuned well and the string on which they are struck doesn't give a dulcet tone to say the least. One could get by with one or two of these notes in a piece but to feature this note multiple times in a row really detracts from this piece.

­Yes, that is one who plays by sticking a flute up his ass and blowing.

You were not the first for certain.  

There was a super expert who know all the great stuff I knew.  

It was a sock moniker of a very famous poaster.

­Possibly.  But before my time.  Since I've been frequenting the red boards I was the first to inject ANY sort of culture here.  Prior to that it was wall to wall "bagger this" and "fagger that", with the occasional "zepp and floyd" tedium.

I gave this board Janine Jensen, Hilary Hahn, Ralph Vaughn-Williams, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Saint-Saens, Faure, Liszt, Dvorak and many, many others.  Prior to my threads the level of knowledge here was a couple of :cryingnazi: screeching that Beethoven is the best there has ever been :rolleyes:

I can see that you yourself are a fellow patron of the arts, so I think only fitting that we do the gentlemanly thing and do not contest each other, but ridicule the Great Unwashed on this board.  I'll start: I would post this, but I doubt this crowd know their brass from their oboe!

If AmeriTARDS had any style then THIS would be your second national anthem, and the piece that is played as every new President is sworn in (not that reworded British National Anthem DRIVEL, "My Country Tis of Thee" :win:)
