And again - no problem :D

Wow! I could hear it another 1000 times - and my dear wife too - and still cry!

Thanks Don!

I'm not usually awake for the 5 o' clock Rock, but I think Stairway to Heaven by Led Zepplin is a favourite in that section. :D

Navneeth,
I can listen to that one over and over and not get tired of it...

I had to stop B.com (and hence Stairway...) since I was in the process of downloading a huge flie this morning (around 02:30 local - free download time). The B.com schedule has been slightly better suited for me in the past few weeks thanks to summer time in the US. I'll listen to the complete performacne the next time they play it, which I think will be in the very near future. :wink:

Bolero vs The Blue Danube

Postby navneeth » Thu Apr 27, 2006 1:10 pm

It appears The Blue Danuble has been on air four times on the 27th. :shock:
But most of the time, when Now Playing says it's The Blue Danube, it's not. :D

David, I hope you heard the Fox trot(?) version they played a couple of weeks ago. In fact, it was from a CD that had various versions of Bolero. I am not able to recall the name right now.

Afraid I didn't - my computer was down then.
Would that have been something arranged like Shostakovich's Tahiti Foxtrot ("Tea for Two")?

Umm... I haven't heard the Shos (the original Shos) piece, but I belive that this was the CD Nicole played

Btw, after it was over, I think she said that she absolutely hated it (Bolero), or something along those lines. (Forgive me if I have exaggerated, YRH. :) )

Navneeth, thank you for the link. Nice arrangements. I am nuts about Spanish music - including that written by non-Spanish composers.
BTW:
Tahiti-Trot
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The Tahiti Trot is Shostakovich's orchestration of "Tea for Two" from the musical No No Nanette by Vincent Youmans. Shostakovich wrote it in response to a challenge from conductor Nikolai Malko: after the two listened to the song on record, Malko bet 100 rubles that Shostakovich could not completely re-orchestrate the song from memory in under an hour. Shostakovich took him up and won, completing the orchestration in around 45 minutes. The Tahiti Trot has been a popular encore ever since, and was used as an entr'acte for the ballet The Age of Gold at the suggestion of conductor Alexander Gauk.

Interesting story behind the Tahiti Trot. :) Maybe I'll make a request this week.

I'm amazed at how many posters on this board cry whenever they hear Bolero :wink:

Well, I'm not all that limited.
I am now listening to Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique on the local radio (all movements)...formidable!!!

I still suggest that you avoid anything described as "Mariachi", particularly if the jacket photo shows pudgy guys in tight pants, short jackets, and lots of concho decorations. It's sort of Polka, con pulque.
