I would say so. It is brilliant.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

Serry is right.

Have you ever heard the word "remix"?

Freddie never wrote a song called "Nocturne". End of the discussion.

I would think that it's a classical composition that either has pieces of Bo Rhap in it, or is a symphonic interpretation of the whole song altogether. Either way, it happens, maybe more commonly than we think.

But i'm still a little curious about this:

8. Lady Grinning Soul (D.Bowie)

I obviously know it must be David Bowie, but it's interesting...lol

Yeah, seems it is some Freddie written song that played by some classical musician.

Freddie wrote in classical manner. His harmonies are mainly Classical or Bluesy.

I just bought the CD BARCELONA last week.

Amazing music!!!
It helps if you like classical music. I think the headbanger rockers might have a problem appreciating it.

Freddie's voice sounds better than I expected and Monserrat has a gorgeous crystal clear soprano that melds magically with Freddie.

It would be an easy introduction to operatic/classical music for the uninitiated.

It's not a remix, my dear ignorant wise-ass. A remix would involve taking the original RECORDING, adding to it, subtracting from it and equalizing the whole. That would not qualify as being remotely similar to the piece of music in question here.


I'm sorry. I made a mistake. I apologize.

This makes me a better person than you, my dear "I don't want to take responsibilities for my actions".

"It's not a remix"

Why it can't be a remix between this nocturne not by Freddie and Bo Rhap by Freddie?

While Barcelona shows the vocal talents of The Great Fred, it in no way offers an opera/classical music fan much more than that. It is highly unstructured and seems quite stale at times. In fact, it doesn't even begin to display what Montserrat had been doing for years.

As for the writing of the material, I think Mike Moran had more to do with that than Freddie, in so far as arrangments and such.

I'm reading a Queen biography, and in 1977, Freddie danced with the Royal Ballet Company, and they "classiced" Boh Rap and Killer Queen up. He had the time of his life, gracefully dancing to his masterpieces, played by the London Symphony Orchestra. Hope that clears it up.
