Hello fellow Queenzoners!
and happy easter to you all!
After listenning to GF Haendel's "Messiah" (a baroque version by Ensemble Mathéus with A.Schoenberg choir), it seemed obvious to me that Haendel and Purcell have, in a way, defined the aesthetic of British music.
It's quite hard to define, but I just can't count how many times I've been thinking of those two great composers, while listenning to Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, and especially entire pieces of Queen 70's album (SHA, ANATO, ADATR)...
For me it's in the colouring of sound, the use of harpsichord
or maybe it's just that those two great composers were so ahead for their time, and would have be able to have major hits, nowadays!
I was wondering if I was the only one hearing it...
cheers, and sorry for not being able to post a topic in one shot...
I try my best, but I mostly play the Viola (classical musicians will know what I mean...), even if I try to look like a guitar player...
What is left of your dreams?
Just the words on your stone
"a man who learned how to teach
then forgot how to learn"
I should remember that, now that I'm graduated Master musician!
