  3. Non-Classical Music
    Is anyone here interested in Italian progressive rock? For those who know nothing about it, Italy has one of the greatest progressive rock histories out of all countries, on par with Britain and Germany as far as output, I believe even exceeding Germany. While I haven't enjoyed it as much as...

    I'd love to know the title and composer of the song that begins at 42:33 of this episode of "Bonanza." It sounds to me like an Italian song from the bel canto period, but I don't know for sure: Edited to add: I know the aria right after it is "La calunnia" from BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA by Rossini.

  7. Opera
    This thread is inspired by a funny anecdote told here (I think) about someone driving in Italy who became lost and could communicate with the cop only through "opera Italian." You're on vacation in a country where you don't speak the language. Fortunately for you, you are well acquainted with...

    A while ago they played Bach's Italian Concerto on the radio. My wife asked why it was called "Italian."* I said that Bach often wrote in styles he considered Italian, French, or English (as well as North German I suppose). But that raises a question.

    I tend to prefer Latin and German over Italian, French and, especially, English when it comes to vocal music. Now, before you jump on me, let me tell you that I majored in English Literature at the University, so the prejudice card or the lack of factual knowledge are off the table. I don't...
