    Time to share my favourite piece of sacred music before I pass into the great beyond - I have worsening symptoms of pneumonia / Covid-19, at only age 24. Maybe I will survive, maybe not. But when you listen to music like this, death matters not. Thank you Johann Sebastian Bach and all who...

  3. Non-Classical Music
    Hi. For me, there were a couple albums that really made me want to play and listen to music as much as possible. He's a list of music that changed my life, please share your own: Ozzy Osbourne - Randy Rhoads Tribute Live album and Diary of a Madman Shawn Lane - Powers of Ten Live Return to...

    So often we are enjoined by both well-meaning and meddlesome others to enjoy life. Typically, they have narrow preconceptions of what enjoyment is, which is often defined as taking fashionable vacations to far-off lands, eating and drinking prodigiously, generally spending one's savings on...

    Real life is just endless misery and failure. We all know this. But one can always dream. So instead of focusing that depressing stuff that actually happens in your life, why not post some total BS but cool stuff that supposedly happens in your life? Here's what just "happened" to me. My...

    No, not ArtMusic. This is from a quote by Jon Vickers, who left us a couple of days ago. "Art is a wrestling with the meaning of life. Since society no longer resists 'the pull of success,' it can no longer define or draw a line between what's art and what's entertainment.'' Posted elsewhere...

    Are there any of you, who like me, think of a specific person in your life when you listen to a particular piece of music. For me I always think of the Tristan und Isolde prelude when I think of the love of my life (cliche as that may be, it's the truth). I always think of my father when I...
  9. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    In the 1948 film, George Stevens' production of 'I Remember Mama', there is a beautiful waltz. It is in the scene where the mother (Irene Dun) visits the celebrity character Miss Florence Dana Moorhead, who is a published writer in the film. This waltz is playing in the background. I have heard...

    It's a modern cliché, that an experience or injury can be 'life-changing'. Does this apply, in any meaningful or practical way, to listening to classical music? What is your experience? Has becoming a fan of classical music changed your life plans? Your personality? Your world-view? The way...

    I've long held a fascination with and admiration for James Agee's "Knoxville: Summer of 1915". He wrote it in one 90 minute writing session, and likened the process to improvisation in jazz: made up on the spot, take or leave it. And for the most part, he stuck to his plan, editing it very...

    Just curious, do you consider your life to be actively simple? This probably means different things to different people. But may I ask if you at least prefer to have a simple way of life? And then if you do prefer to have a simple way of life, do you actively live it that way?
  15. Solved Cases (archive)
    Hello, I'm trying to identify the music that plays at the beginning of the "Find the Fish" segment in The Meaning of Life. It plays for about ten seconds beginning at :28 in this clip: I'm guessing it's Elgar or something of that sort. Thanks.

    It's been difficult recently to access the forum and it's been suggested that some of us don't have a real life away from Talk Classical! :lol: That got me to thinking - I do have a real life, but when it comes to listening to music, I absolutely need TC in order to tell people what I'm...

    The beginning is very fast. Exciting. Then there is a short pause and the rest of the song begins to sadden. He "recaps" some of the exciting "moments" in the sad part. This piece was written in 1795. We know that he had a hard life. Around this time Mozart died. A year later, he became deaf...
