Instruments: Flute Oboe Clarinet 1 Clarinet 2 Bassoon French Horn Trumpet 1 Trumpet 2 Trombone Tuba Timpani Percussion Cymbals Violin 1 Violin 2 Viola Cello 1 Cello 2 Cello 3 Double Bass Note: to those of you who saw this when I put it up yesterday, I had to take it down because the sound wasn't quite balanced. So after re-editing quite a bit today, here is the final version :) Note to subscribers: I would have never dreamed of writing such a large orchestral piece if it wasn't for all the comments and messages you guys send me every day. They inspire me more than you know, and encouraged me to put in many many more hours than I had planned, into writing this piece, so that it could be as good as possible. Thanks for inspiring me daily and I promise that as long as you keep listening, I will keep writing :)

Pure sound -compilation dedicated to the marvelous FWD French-made kit car from the 1990s that did all the tricks a car could do on tarmac - in style. And as the magicians behind the wheel we have the two French tarmac aces who made the audience go absolutely bonkers while taking this beasty kit car to the very limit of performance - Gilles Panizzi and Francois Delecour. Footage is from 1997-1998 French Rally Championship events and WRC Tour de Corse Rally Corsica. *Credits to ElTony007 for the source material*

Excerpts from twelve great western classical works: See the Playlist: www.youtube.com While taking just a short clip from a full-length classical work does not do justice to the beauty of the whole, it does let you take a peek at that beauty through a small window. Here are 12 such peeks at some of the greatest western classical works. I chose these specific pieces primarily because each one of them has a special place in my journey of discovery through the classical landscape. There is no intent to rank them here or among the other classical works. 1) The Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 "Choral" by Beethoven: Completed in 1824, was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony. The words were taken from "Ode to Joy", a poem written by Friedrich Schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803, with additions made by the composer. +++ 2) The Symphony No. 9 in E (Op. 95, B. 178) by Antonín Dvořák, popularly known as the New World Symphony, was composed in 1893 during his visit to the United States from 1892 to 1895. It is by far his most popular symphony, and one of the most popular in the modern repertory. ++ 3) The Triumphal March from Aida, an opera by Giuseppe Verdi about an Ethiopian princess captured and brought into slavery in Egypt. +++ 4) Toreador Chorus from the French opéra Carmen by Georges Bizet. It premiered at the Opéra-Comique of Paris on March 3, 1875, but its opening run was denounced by the majority of critics. Bizet died three months later of ...

A video I made with Claude Debussy's Reverie (new video). Achille-Claude Debussy (August 22, 1862 March 25, 1918) was a French composer. Along with Maurice Ravel, he is considered one of the most prominent figures working within the field of Impressionist music, though he himself intensely disliked the term when applied to his compositions. Debussy is not only among the most important of all French composers; he was also a central figure in European music at the turn of the twentieth century. His music is noted for its sensory component and how it is not often formed around one key or pitch. Often Debussy's work reflected the activities or turbulence in his own life. His music virtually defines the transition from late-Romantic music to twentieth century modernist music. In French literary circles, the style of this period was known as Symbolism, a movement that directly inspired Debussy both as a composer and as an active cultural participant.
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach Pianist: Glenn Gould Paintings: 1) Johannes Vermeer's "View of Delft" 2) Januarius Zick's "Peasant Dance in a Tavern" 3) Claude Monet's "Woman in a Garden" 4) Vincent van Gogh's "Country Road in Provence by Night" 5) Pablo Picasso's "Dance of Peace" Bach's music is timeless, so I represented it with colorful and distinctive paintings from successive eras. This is one of my favorites from the set of French Suites, and I hope you are enjoying it....
