Re: Track of the week

Track #20. Salome, composed by Richard Strauss in 1905. Final section here, wonderfully performed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRYNHOiEFBs Topical, as this is the opera I went to see on Wednesday. A full performance is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umMeLSNlYMU This won't be to all tastes...

Track #19. Quadrophenia, by The Who https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXY5UWBmIFs Stunning double album full of energy and driving rock coupled with melodies and a storyline. There is a slightly later film which I never tire of seeing, and also containing the best cinematic knee-trembler. The full alb...

You play pretty well as you are, so unless you are wanting to raid and squeeze another two percent, I wouldn't bother ;)

Track #18. Requiem in D minor op 48 by Gabriel Faure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zqoztX4u9A The link is to a chamber choir and orchestra performance, beautifully done and performed in such a way that one can hear all the textures. The style these days, mostly influenced by John Rutter's editio...

Re: Track of the week

A French double bill this week. Track #16 Le tourbillon de la vie, sung by Jeanne Moreau: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcVcwwo8QFE The sound quality and film are a bit poor, I guess this was video-ed from the film. This is from Truffaut's masterful film Jules et Jim, the story of a love triangle ...

Re: Track of the week

Track #15. Duke Bluebeard's Castle, by Bela Bartok. This is the greatest opera of the twentieth century in my estimation. It's a psycho-sexual thriller, with only two characters: the Duke and his new bride Judith. It is often not staged, but just performed in the concert hall. I managed to get to se...

Re: Favourite Bosses - Then vs Now

I have a vague sense that WoW moved from having well-designed fights that tested your class knowledge and abilities - in the sense of maximising output - to fights exhibiting a lot of RNG, too many mechanics, and testing how fast you can move to the right place. Like 1. Chimaeron, Blackwing Descent,...

Re: Track of the week

Track #13. Symphony number 2 in D major, by Jean Sibelius There are many wonderful recordings. My first was in the vinyl boxed set with Colin Davis and the London SO. The following is with Mariss Jansons on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sSFVvF7-W0 If you only can bear a snippet, here is ...
