Re: Track of the week

Track #26. Symphony No 3 in C minor, Op 78 'Organ', by Camille Saint-Saëns Played here by the Orchestre de Paris conducted by Paavo Jarvi at a BBC prom (turn up the volume!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWCZq33BrOo I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will...

Re: Social Application - Dendrofob

Good luck with the app. If you really want to raid, i would suggest to apply for raider right away. I can not see any advantage in applying for social, as that is kind of where you would end up anyway if the raider app fails for whatever reason.

Re: Track of the week

Track #25. The Music Weaver, by Sandy Denny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9haVapOCplc&start_radio=1&list=RD9haVapOCplc Hard to listen to this without crying. Sandy Denny died in 1978 in odd circumstances, possibly suicide and possibly not. What a loss. Some of her other songs are better k...

Re: Track of the week

Track #24. Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis, by Ralph Vaughan-Wiliams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihx5LCF1yJY For me, this is the sound of how it is to be English. Written in 1910 and designed to be played in Gloucester Cathedral, the orchestra is split into three distant parts as in this re...

Track #22 Piano Concerto no. 3 by Sergei Prokofiev Played here by Martha Argerich https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgnE25-kvyk This is a stunning piece, full of energy. It takes a few hearings to get the tunes and the rhythms, but well worth it. My phone ringtone is a snippet I recorded from the fina...

Re: Track of the week

Track #21 The Bergen, by Jez Lowe https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9ez3yEzzKg Jez Lowe is hardly known outside North-East England, and barely known there. He was born and raised in Easington, a few miles away from where I live, and still lives there. He's one of England's greatest songwriters (in my...

A full performance is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=umMeLSNlYMU This won't be to all tastes...

Re: Track of the week

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...
