It hurt my trained ears a lot, and yet I went to see this very beautiful movie! (2015) which was selected and presented in competition at the Venice Film Festival, where it received FOUR awards including that of the best actress for
Catherine FROT 🤩
during the 41st CESAR ceremony.
THANK YOU, very, very much, Ms Zizounaï!! 😘😘

In a completely different register, if I may say, here is an extract of the movie Marguerite, here trying to sing the Queen of the night aria. This movie is the story of a woman who wants to be an operatic singer but who sings terribly out of key. Hilarious and distressing at the same time... 😁

AMADEUS 😨 the Magic Flute overture:

Merlin Merlin posted this comment:

MOZART: The Magic Flute - Overture:


The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte), K. 620, is an opera in two act. In this opera, the QUEEN of the NIGHT persuades Prince Tamino to rescue her daughter Pamina from captivity under the high priest Sarastro 😉 --- The Magic Flute is noted for its prominent Masonic elements. The opera is also influenced by Enlightenment philosophy and can be regarded as advocating enlightened absolutism. The QUEEN of the NIGHT is seen by some to represent a dangerous form of obscurantism 😉

Great thx, Alex! Love you! 😍

Makes you realize that when a great piece of art meets more than 300 yrs after a great musician with a total different style of music, magic still operates.

And it works the other way around, when classical musicians meet rock music ;

This is an excerpt from the unfinished REQUIEM by W.A. MOZART- Richard MAUNDER's completion (1988) - a concert on November 16, 2018, under the direction of Belgian maestro Henk CORNIL 😉 ---- What a wonderful SURPRISE, Alex!, and a great choice!, Merlin's nephew, pianist and guitarist, when you're not on the drums! 🤩 ---- And I see that it is my Peruvian niece Flora, your nice wife, who recorded these little musical movements where my anonymity is well protected! 😂 Huge THANKS! You know that I love you, Flora and Alex, but I'll tell you again! 😍

What Is Tempo? 😉:


I have hundreds of sheets at home where the tempo is NOT indicated by the Author, because this - binding - indication is relatively RECENT in the history of music 😉
