Probably a really stupid question ... but what is the city in the film there?
The only clue in there is that it's an English-speaking place (from the ads on the side of the tram).
Could be San Francisco, as all the streets in SF are apparently long and straight and hilly! (?)
The monumental building at the end of the street should be a telling landmark, I suppose, but I don't recognise it and it was taking ages to travel down that street.  I couldn't wait till eventually reaching the end because my eyes wouldn't stay open.  The hypnotic music was sending me to sleep!

Lovely stuff - great street theatre, but the acoustics were all wrong of course.  Why not try the full 16 minutes.  Not a lot to look at, but a chance to appreciate the brilliant orchestration.  And the build up is impressive.

Ah yes.  Lovely. Very Happy  
I love the dramatic way the conductor instructs with his eyes, rather than waving his stick around.

It can not get any better than this!

To pay homage to the town they love and to celebrate their 130 anniversary Sabadell Bank in Spain delighted the townspeople with an incredible symphony flash mob. Watch as they play Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and sang Ode to Joy, filling up the town with joy and beautiful music!

Awesome and so uplifting. Very Happy   That's just how it should be.  All music should be available for ordinary folk in the street to enjoy anywhere. Not everyone has the money to fork out on concerts and theatres.  
These flashmobs must take an awful lot of organising in advance.  Well done to all the people who took part.  Really great to see.  sunny

The fourth of Richard Strauss's "Four Last Songs", sung by the wonderful Gundula Janowitz.  The images, not perhaps wonderful, but interesting, relate to King Ludwig 11 of Bavaria, who was responsible for the construction of two spectacular "Fairy-tale" castles, and the near bankruptcy of his country.  He died in mysterious circumstances in a nearby lake.  Hence the images.  Anyway, enjoy what was probably Strauss's last composition.



(That music always produces tears.)

Not really my type of sound, but very listenable.  Had to go find the other three.  Here they all are together.  No images, only those conjured up in your own minds.

Jamboree,  that recording was one of the first I bought on CD - 20 years ago.  She has a great voice, though in my opinion, rather too big for those songs.

Anyway, in complete contrast, a keyboard arrangement of a Siciliana from a flute sonata by J.S.Bach.

Makes me feel sad and lonely watching that Bimbow.  Lovely photos but not a soul around anywhere.  I think the person playing that tune was sad and lonely thinking about his empty life  and probably contemplating ending it all.  shtum   rock

Sorry you were having trouble posting YouTube videos, bimbow.  I can't think what the problem can be. scratchhead

Here goes - hopefully these will come out okay:

1.  Second movement of Nigel Hess Piano Concerto, commissioned by Prince Charles in memory of the death of the Queen Mother.  






2.  Theme music to the Hetty Wainthropp TV series, also composed by Nigel Hess.

Nothing much to look at - just a Monet (!)  - but wonderfully atmospheric music. 
Benjamin Britten - Sea Interludes from "Peter Grimes".  (1. Dawn) (1944)



And very good sound, on my headphones, at least.

A lovely, not well-known Rachmaninov Prelude. The others are well-worth exploring for those who have the time.

Just had one of those, "Have I posted this before?" moments. I don't think I have, but apologies if I have!

This is, apparently,  a deleted scene from Disney's "Fantasia", credited as dating from 1940. Terrible sound but something delightful about the animation. Hoping viewers will enjoy.
