Re: never-ending gallery

The Moldau is, indeed, a very lovely piece, but it was composed by Smetana. Incidentally, Smetana, like Beethoven, became deaf, and he wrote "The Moldau/Vlatava" after he lost his hearing. Sibelius is wonderful -- his Symphony #5 is one of my top favourites! Absolutely correct Lisa. check...

Re: never-ending gallery

My father loved most kinds of music, but especially classical, so by the time I left home I had heard many great and famous compositions. After college when I truly went out on my own, I told him how much I enjoyed the classical music he played on our phonograph (later stereo), and asked if he could...

The Lanyard

I was not familiar with Billy Collins, but had occasion to read this poem of his yesterday. I was quite touched by it. When I looked up "The Lanyard" today online, I came across this short video of the author reading it. Maybe you will also be touched. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EjB7...

Re: The Future album review

I was always impressed that LC could almost always get all the verses and words right when they performed Closing Time, it's a complicated composition.

Re: never-ending gallery

Sorry for mis-attributing your artwork Lisa. While I would have preferred a different background color, I cannot, after reflection, come up with one that would improve your print.

G, I knew if I waited long enough you'd come through. The marsh looks like carnage had recently occurred there, but you certainly got the flowers and leaves correct.

Re: prayer for messiah

Nalliar,

I have not read anything in this thread save what you quoted and wrote, I only stopped by because I saw activity here. I have no clue why or to whom "roman Footsteps" (sic) was written, but thank you for interpreting it with one perfectly readable sentence.

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

The wine might not have been expensive, but I will forever remember how perfect drinking it was as the early October sun moved down in the sky and the electricity in the air rose. One of the wine bearers was a delightful young woman from South Africa, I no longer remember her real name, but her foru...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

As Leonard was fond of saying, greetings! My history with Cohen was similar to yours--SOLAH was the album that enticed me, but then I lost touch with him and his music, but my rediscovery did not occur until 2010. I always loved the Waiting for the Miracle lyrics, in particular, the final verse, but...
