Songs that remind you of Europe

Postby perpetualburn » Thu Jan 13, 2022 3:47 am

What songs remind you of Europe or produce a romantic longing for the continent? No classical. No English.



As a pillar of rising smoke did my angel condescend and appear, standing without reserve on the exhausted banks of infinite sorrow.

"There, where the state CEASETH—pray look thither, my brethren! Do ye not see it, the rainbow and the bridges of the Superman?" -N

I remember liking the song that you posted above. You should repost it.

More Eastern European music.

Excellent.

Here's another Slavic song. This one is in English, unfortunately. Should have been in Polish.

La musique Francais.. I don’t listen to French music enough anymore.. it’s an easy
way to re-learn the language, I’d say… I’ve been enamoured with and listening to
Korean and Eastern-European rap, of late instead..

I’m only just realising.. after decades of hiatus, that French music is very romantique,
positif, patriotique.. abstinence breeds awareness and insight, it seems.

Italian is like the blood (quick and passionate), and Greek is like the heart (mysterious and profound).

Carl Orff's Carmina Burana is one of the most popular pieces of the classical music repertoire. Here the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, the University Chorus and Alumni Chorus, and the Pacific Boychoir perform at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis.

If I may translate the lyrics roughly:


'There is a small fishing boat on the wave filled Lake Balaton , he throws out his net for fish but he has no luck, and hiw sweetheart left the poor boy as well'



This is one of the most important folk songs of the country.
Here in three versions, the last one a bar versions.

I was on a train from Austria to Germany...

I had the delight of listening to (amongst others) these two death songs.

YouTube is horrible for classical piano, so for the first I chose a lesser version from Glenn Gould for Beethoven’s Funeral March here:

https://youtu.be/AnS1i9bVGHU

Now! This best version of Totentanz (which means dance of death in Hungarian) was based off a melody thousands of years old. This actually is the best player ever of this song:

https://youtu.be/emb0oBC8hhY
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

Welcome to thinking.

I can go on for days about these two songs...

I’ll just leave a very interesting fact about Liszts piano transcriptions of Beethoven symphonies...

The funeral march has a passage where the thumb on the right hand plays in 3/4 time and the rest of the the fingers in ordinary march time. It’s extremely hard to play, and sublimime.

You know what’s ironic?

All the most beautiful songs in music history have been composed about death. The devil.

The best ever Liszt / Beethoven transcription of the funeral march (2nd movement of the seventh symphony) was by an Australian pianist named Leslie Howard... good luck finding that! Even better luck finding the ossai version!!
