Hello,
after some longer break I am going to put here some music again. Cause in my country we have Easter time I am going to put here some music to match the time. :roll:
It will be Mexicana version of Johan Strauss Orchestra that is - I think - started and conducted by a Dutchman - Andre Rieu - beneath you can read what I have found both about Andre Rieu and about his life, orchestra on wikipedia portal and soon some more music from me to everyone all over the world. This music I have found is not only for Easter time I think. It is a music proper to other parts of the year too. I chose 2 performances - first performance "La Paloma" is the shorter one and another "Fiesta mexicana" is longer one.

1. La Paloma

2. Fiesta Mexicana

And here some infor from wikipedia about Andre Rieu:

André Léon Marie Nicolas Rieu (born 1 October 1949) is a Dutch violinist, conductor, and composer best known for creating the waltz-playing Johann Strauss Orchestra.

The name Rieu is of French Huguenot origin. He began studying violin at the age of five. His father, of the same name, was conductor of the Maastricht Symphony Orchestra. From a very young age he developed a fascination with orchestra. He studied violin at the Conservatoire Royal in Liège and at the Conservatorium Maastricht, (1968–1973). His teachers included Jo Juda and Herman Krebbers. From 1974 to 1977, he attended the Music Academy in Brussels, studying with André Gertler, getting his degree "Premier Prix" from the Brussels Royal Conservatory.

At University he performed the Gold And Silver Waltz by Franz Lehár. Encouraged by the audience reaction he decided to pursue the waltz form. Rieu formed the Maastricht Salon Orchestra and performed as a violinist with the Limburg Symphony Orchestra. In 1987, he created the Johann Strauss Orchestra and his own production company. Since then, his melodramatic stage performances and rock-star demeanor have for some been associated with a revival of the waltz music category. André Rieu plays a 1667 Stradivarius violin.

The Orchestra began in 1998 with 21 members but now performs with between 80 and 150 musicians. At the time the Orchestra first toured Europe, there emerged a renewed interest in waltz music. The revival began in the Netherlands and was ignited by their recording of the Second Waltz from Shostakovich's Jazz Suites. As a result, Rieu became known as the waltz King.

Rieu and his orchestra have performed throughout Europe, in North America, and Japan. Winning a number of awards including two World Music Awards, their recordings have gone gold and platinum in many countries, including 8-times Platinum in the Netherlands.

In September 2007 Rieu performed in Australia for the first time solo.

He is married to Marjorie, who works with him full-time as production manager, and has two sons, Marc and Pierre. He speaks (in order of fluency) Dutch, English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.


That's all for today.
I hope you have had nice Easter time if you celebrate it.
Soon more music from me,
LM

Hello today...
this time I decided to put here something black and white - that's just life though sometimes some colours happen too (or lack of any colours at all). Ok. So today 2 songs from latest Maria Mena album titled VICTORIA. I hope you will like the songs beneath. :-)

1. Maria Mena Victoria
2. Maria Mena homeless

Ok. Now something more about Maria Mena (also from wikipedia):

Maria Mena was born into an artistic family, her mother, a playwright and her father, a drummer. Both Maria and her brother, Tony, are named after characters from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story. Her mother is Norwegian and her father is Nicaraguan.

Her father played in several bands in Oslo, which influenced Mena to write and record her own music. When Mena was nine years old, her parents divorced. She suffered from depression and developed an eating disorder.

When Mena was 13 years old, she moved to live with her father. She sang and wrote lyrics as a form of self-soothing. "My Lullaby", a song from Mena's diary, expresses her pain from her parents' divorce. After pleading with her father to make a demo, he contacted some acquaintances in the music industry to record the demo. Presenting his daughter's demo to several record companies, Sony Music signed Mena to their label.


To be continued soon...

Hello,
That's me again. I have just had a look into this site and what can I see?
Do you like TIROL music? I think it is terribly boring. I am not able at the moment to scan for so many pages in this plot but I think TIROL music has appeared earlier here. Only I don't know where and when. So when I have so few time I want to put POLISH MOUNTAINEUS FOLKLORE - to me more interesting than slow German songs. And well... apart from being tuneful not interesting at all. Just like all other German songs only lyrics about Tirol when Polish mountaineous folklore is much more interesting from artistic point of view. If more sensful/less sensful I don't know. As deals lyrics - noone speaks language of poeple of mountains - so who cares? That's all. So when once again TIROL - Polish mouintaineous folklore also once again. Up to you what is really better and about what REAL problems the artists sing. :roll:

Silesia band Polish mountain music

to be continued soon...
cheers,
LM.

Amazing! Beethoven is one of my favorite Classical composers. However, the Violin solo concert he composed is a very difficult one but rich in Technic to practice and make you a better violinist ( Yes, I love it).
Well, to continue the thread, I've been listening to these songs lately:

"At Last" by Etta James.
"Romeo" by Basement Jaxx.
"Beautiful liar" by Beyoncè.
