Classical Music

Now, my idea of classical music usually involves Olivia Newton-John, but others apparently have different ideas.  A post by kishnevi at Horseman, Pass By! has a very funny link that prompts this discussion.  I asked Machinist for his recommendation for an embedded classical music video and got this:



Discuss.

1 At least I resisted giving you opera. I actually listen to little else.

Opera might have been a bit "pretentious" maybe?  *snort*

3 As usual, Firefox won't play embedded videos for me,  so I have absolutely nothing to say about it.
But try this one
http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=shostakovich+violin+hahn&search_type=&search=Search
The first five on the list, in order. 
There's several pieces where Shostakovich got the devil to come out and dance, and this is one of them, starting with the second movement (the video apparently slices it up with no reference to the movement divisions--it should be midway into the second video) and not really giving up on it until the very end.

4 It should play in Firefox.  Clear your cache... under Tools, Advanced tab, you'll see where to clear it.  I'm disappointed in your links though, Olivia Newton-John wasn't anywhere to be found.

Just sayin'

5 Kishnevi's blog has classical music AND posts on desktop siege engines! I may have to move into that neighborhood!

8 Hey, I'd say Hilary Hahn is a better eyeful than Olivia Newton John ever was.

Of course I could be wrong.

And I guess I should you thank you for the linkage.

10 Well, I guess Hilary Hahn isn't quite as goodlooking as that....

11 I read the LA Times article over at Horseman and I'm still laughing. Got Dv8 good with it!! I don't often find something that renders him helpless...
As always, your links are great, thanks Stash!
