opera is powerful, and the music full of beauty, magic and poetry (in a way too)....and even without understanding one single word of arias, you simply feel the meaning. I remember my first opera at the age of 12, it was Mozartīs "the abduction from the seraglio"...our music teacher at that time "made" us to go....but, oh, what an experience.....being a child back then, just the "adventure" of going there, with the atmosphere , and the moment the big red curtain opened and the music began.....

My dream weekend is to fly out to Milan and go to the San Ciro to see a Milan Derby ....then, next day for dinner at a top class restaurant followed by top seats at the Teatro Alla Scala for a performance of a Puccini opera. Unfortunately, my bank balance precludes such a break....but I can dreamBigsmile

Elvis Aaron Presley...universally known just as Elvis, had his first hit in January 1956 with "Heartbreak Hotel" and swallowed his blue suede shoes in 1977 at the age of 42. During those 21 years there were actually three Elvis Presleys. There was Rock and Roll Elvis up until he was conscripted into the Army in 1958...then...from 1960, Hollywood Elvis emerged, staring in a string of poor films, followed by Las Vegas Elvis from 1968 until his untimely death in 1977. This is the one all Elvis impersonators do and is quite frankly a parody of the earlier two. But here's a statistic for you. In 1973 he did a global satellite broadcast called "Aloha from Hawaii" that was watched by an estimated 1.5 billion viewers. Yes...that's not a mistype, 1.5 BILLION.

However, in my opinion, there is only one Elvis and that's the one who recorded at Sun Records for those two years before the Army took him in '58. He was fucking phenomenal. His presence, aura and sexuality were obvious even to blokes..so what he did for women can only be imagined in your wettest dreams. Here's one of those early songs, a ballad which caused damp crotch syndrome all over the female half of the planet.

Words like Powerful, Majestic, Inspiring, come to mind when I hear Wagner. He really knew how to fill a concert hall with sound. This overture from Tannhauser" makes my hair stand on end as it approaches it's climax (around 1.59 secs) and if there is a grander piece of music I have yet to hear it.

Either you like Wagner or you hate him (or rather his music)...well, I never liked him ...as for powerful pieces, take the requiems of Mozart or Verdi....THEY have something too.
As an example the DIES IRAE (the days of wrath)....here by Verdi (I think it has more enigma than Mozartīs dies irae....

sorry for my morbid touch ....Mahler is a great "minor"-composer as well...always attatched to death....

I was going to put the Verdi Requiem on here at a later date. As for the Mozart, I agree with you that it a very surreal piece of music, but it just doesn't do it for me.....it lacks the "punch in the guts" that I get from Wagner. I'm very basic you seeBigsmile

I also like some of Gustav Mahler's work, he overcame a lot of prejudice in his personal life and this may be reflected in his music.

On my Jack Todd tonight...been thinking about the Derby and getting nervous/excited so need to chill out. Going to listen to some music, then a large G&T then I'm going to cook myself a Beef Stroganoff and wash it down with a nice bottle of Australian Cab. Already made arrangements for the missus to drop me off at the ground and pick me up. Everyone seems to be full of confidence Thumbsup(hears alarm bell go off in back of mind)Erm
Us Wednesdayites are SOooooo used to getting slapped down just when we think everything is at last coming up rosesSad It's supposed to get easier with age and experience.....but it doesn't....I know I'm rambling now....time for some musicCool
