How could I forget this classic? It is probably the best piece of music ever written! Being a musical dummy, I wish I could have one-tenth of the talent of the author of this classic!

Johann Pachelbel - Canon in D Major

Good choice. Smile I'm curious how do you like this rock interpretation of Pachelbel's Canon in D Major (played on the electric guitar). It's amazing that Baroque music excellently sounds in modern interpretations.

I strongly recommend you to hear it: Rock version of Pachelbel's Canon in D Major Very Happy

Wow! That's amazing! Even though you don't show your face in that video, I'm 100% sure that you are the guitarist! You're such a talented guitarist! Razz

Well, I'm a quiet person. I'd prefer a subtle version of Pachelbel's Canon!

I know that you'd deny being the talented guitarist - you're a humble man! Maybe you don't want to be recognised! Very Happy

By the way, it is samsara. Wink

both sansara and samsara are correct as no one of them match to संसार completely

samsara: (Sanskrit) "Flow." The phenomenal world. Transmigratory existence, fraught with impermanence and change.
The cycle of birth, death and rebirth; the total pattern of successive earthly lives experienced by a soul. A term similar to punarjanma (reincarnation), but with broader connotations.

Confused

track 13 is the "Song of India" from the opera Sadko, by Rimsky Korsakov, sung in Swedish by Jussi Bjorling.

From the same reason we should write "Samskrit" (samskrtam) instead of "Sanskrit". Wink

Why we write the word "Sanskrit" in the same way as we pronounce it, but in the same time we write "Samsara" and pronounce it as "Sansara"? This is an effect of inaccuracy of the transliteration from devanagari to latin script.

The sign called anusvāra (letter 'm' with dot under it; present in the transliteration of words "samskrtam" and "samsara") is used both to indicate the nasalization of the vowel in the syllable and to represent the sound of a syllabic 'n' or 'm':

Well, maybe we can start a new thread to discuss these "what-it-sounds-is-NOT-what-it-spells" issues in languages. It would be sort of fun! Razz

Here is a simple example:

Spelling: lullaby
"Expected" pronunciation: lu-la-by
"Standard" pronunciation: la-la-by

I don't think so. I suppose that most members of this forum are rather bored by all these "heavy/weird" threads (so am I). Wink It would be better if we continue to talk about music. Smile

OK, let's talk about music - one of few things which could really join the people. Very Happy

I'm curious, why here nobody gave a link to songs of Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng. Confused She was well known in Eastern Asia (she sang in Mandarin, Taiwanese, Cantonese, Japanese, Indonesian and English). victor, I hope that you'll like this song: Teresa Teng - Ji Duo Chou

And something interesting: Teresa Teng - Mix of the American Rock'n'Roll songs

Wow! MHajduk, you know quite a broad range of singers over the world. Surprised

I strongly recommend you listen to this song "月亮代表我的心" ("The Moon Represents My Heart") by Teresa, which was voted/regarded as the most favourite song of ALL Chinese in the world. Enjoy! Razz

I feel really touched by this song, despite I didn't understand Chinese words (before I translated it into English, I listened to this song few times Wink ). But it isn't big problem for me, because I always listen to the music "by heart" not "by mind". Wink That way, all music of the world is clear for me and I feel strong emotions flowing through my body.

"The Moon Represents My Heart" - for me that means "my heart changes like the Moon, sometimes dies but always rises from the dead". Smile

Accordingly to my "draft of the life plan" Wink I try to understand people from the other cultures. But I don't do it in "official" way - I try to forget about differences in religions and politics and find the straight way to their hearts (listen to the same music, watch the art, read what they write on their forums). Very Happy I hope that some day this kind of knowledge will be helpful for me.

It's really very good music, thimis. Smile And new for me (I haven't known "Madredeus" till now Embarassed). Their melodies seems to be calm but have internal "spin" and "pulse". When I listen these songs I have an unclear feeling that something begins... (example: Madredeus - Moro em Lisboa). Vocalist (Teresa Salgueiro) has a very good voice with great sound scale (from "velvet" and low to high and cold like a metal). Smile Not to mention interesting video clips.

I'm going to like this band. Very Happy

If you like rock interpretation of classical music, I suggest you to get "Wolf Hoffman - Classical", and also listen to "Fur Elise" turned to heavy metal solo in his song "Accept - Metal Heart" (studio version is better than live).

Other notorious rock/classical guitarists:
Ritchie Blackmore - 70s guy who started it in UK
Uli Jon Roth - 70s guy who started it in Germany
Yngwie Malmsteen - 80s guy who popularized it
Michael Angelo Batio - 80s different version of Yngwie
Alexi Laiho - 90s black metal guitarist who has nice cover of Vivaldi - Summer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWx_GyTLGmQ

Here is "Vivaldi - La Primavera" played by Uli Jon Roth: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmDTO3XUGZ4

Yes, I like this kind of music because it has the best of two worlds (excellent classical compositions and dynamic modern arrangement with drums). Many people think that classical music is dead and should be closed in the musical museum but it isn't true. Old compositions could be used as a big treasury of possible inspirations. Music is a unity. Smile

Great. Very Happy That's it. Scenery and musicians' clothes seems to be taken from 17th century Dutch paintings (or from "The Maids of Honour" by Diego Velazquez). Very pleasant show. Smile
