    Mendelssohn rocks my face off, and the violin player’s skill and presence is quite beautiful.

    I almost couldn’t see the pianist in Moonlight Sonata, she’s wearing classical camo.

    Bear, if I had a criticism, it would only be for the scary Apocalyptica guys. It’s like Euro-Metallica with cellos. It would have been more palatable without the visuals. Still amazing work though.
    My rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

    • SCARY Apocalyptica ? 🙂 🙂 They do have some scary (tacky) videos, and some that are just the album cover. I chose this one because of the little speech, which amused me. And I like their version of Grieg’s Peer Gynt , Hall Of The Mountain King, better than Epica’s, though many, including Dear Son IV disagree with me. He like’s Epica’s Classical Conspiracy. Apocolytica does also play some Metallica songs, and have collaborated. 🙂 Hall Of the Mountain King is supposed to be scary, though … Zug Der Zwerg, which also in in Grieg’s Peer Gynt is the only other scary part. Most of Greig is pastoral.

      That is actually a film of a Valentina practice run-through before a concert. She usually wears strapless evening gowns performing. She does street concerts and spontaneous performances too, but then she is in the camo. 🙂 “Classical Camo” —- Johnny, you have classically coined a concept.

      I’ve loved Annie Sophie’s intensely sweet violin for many years. She has a purity that few musicians achieve. Not so many men care for it though. I’m wondering if it might be related to (partial) high frequency deafness which may turn what it is beautiful to me, (and you and Eva) into mere screeching ? or they (my husband, for example) find her boring? What do you think is the source of so much antipathy? Some of her critics say that while she is technically good (merely good?) she lacks passion. I do not think so. In fact I think (in this performance) she carried the orchestra AND the conductor (I think maybe he had a recent stoke or some sort of palsy) . It seems to me that her virtuosity is so superb that she elevates any music she plays to something more than before she performed it. JMHO I am so very glad that you appreciate Annie’s beauty… and that particular Mendelssohn choice 🙂 too. I was unable to find the recoding of the same work, that I have on an old(er) CD. She performs equally well, but the orchestra is better in the older recording (sans film).

      ps How did you get those stars there? I should like to hand some stars out to you, too, maybe on a poem or ink drawing, now and again. 🙂 Thank you, Johnny

        Ha ha…they didn’t really scare me.

        I figured miss camo was warming up; or playing at a pub. Either way, she blends perfectly with the keys.

        Annie is superb. I think a trained ear can appreciate most ranges of tone, though the violin or picollo can reach uncomfortable levels. The only way she could have been more passionate is if she were to dance while playing at such a dizzying pace. She WAS the concert. I guess we all have our preferences.

        The stars come with my devices. I’m not sure if it’s a Samsung thing or android in general, but they are part of my keyboard options, as well as: ♡♥☆★□■○●º•◇◆¤《》¡¿. If you are using a pc, you should be able to search “character map” and find hundreds of symbols that you can copy/paste. 🙂

  2. “For the end we will punish you by playing classical music.” And the crowd goes wild. Bear YOU are in a very ROWDY mood. “Let the wild rumpus begin” and it certainly is romping here. Hot guys with cellos going crazy, Epica, Dore–hot guy according to his self portrait. Okay enough from me. LOL.

  3. Lysistrata — how interesting you went to the Greeks for an anti-war play–and I touched on The Pianist for my own. O Anne Sophie Mutter. I once loaned a cd of her music to a friend whose husband defaced the cd because she played it more than he could tolerate. What a jerk. Thank you for reminding me of her. Hmm.
    As for Dore–ooo boyo, Bear, Are you trying to push my buttons? Hmmm? LOL.

    • Lysistrata — I was the only freshman stage manager ever at FSU for Lysistrata when the theatre dept. was in the old Diffenbaugh building … now demolished. My husband doesn’t much care for the intense sweetness of her violin either. But he has refrained from defacing my cd(s). She just doesn’t fit on RFD TV.
      I should like to visit Florence as a tourist, I think. Or maybe as a student. Oooo!! Wouldn’t that be fun!!

      • Florence can be a great deal of fun if you’re in the right frame of mind alone–or with a great companion enjoying everything. I had THE BEST hot cocoa there ever on a cold fall day.Tourist or student, no matter, either way you’d be in Florence. Hmm. And the Art—well, much to love.

        Hmm I should like to hear more about your life as a theatre person. Have you posted here in your blogcasa about those experiences?

        As for the Mutter cd it was wonderfully sweet romances of course. LOL. Did you tour Paris with Johnny? Oh what a lovely painter’s piece he posted. Hmm.
