    Default OT; music

    If an orchestra in your city performs Respighi's *Pines of Rome*, don't miss it. I am relatively ignorant about classical music. I know that I love Brahms and Beethoven, and certain Bach compositions like the Brandenburg Concertos, and many of the Rossini overtures, and quite a few other things, but I know far less about classical music than most folks who regularly attend symphony performances. That Pines of Rome thing was f-ing spectacular, mind-f-ingly spectacular. I'm not posting a YouTube link because it is thesort of piece that could never be done justice in that compressed format. I was blown away, as was the rest of the audience.

    "Pines of Rome " IS wonderful - if you don't see those tramping legions, well......
    what can I say. Also, give an ear to Respighi's "The Birds". ( Do I have that right, serious music buffs?)

    Also the "Fountains of Rome," which is the third part of his Impressionist
    trilogy. Respighi redefined Impressionism with a huge capital "I."
