MOST Excellent~!!  :lol:

 

Impossible to listen to without your feet moving!  ^_^

 

And by the way... I'm much more likely to open a thread entitled "Can-Can" started by Subdeacon Joe than Alpo.  With all due respect to both!  :P

I have to say, it always tweeks my mind some when I remember that the Can-Can is part of an Offenbach classical comic opera.

A confession:

Watching a multitude of videos like unto these, is the exact reason a certain (harrumph) saloon of mention (harrumph) paid good money to its piano players, why said saloon had a stage, and why a certain lovely lass and the other dancers flanking her,  wore feathered masks ... so a certain (harrumph) town of mention (harrumph) would not know the daughter of a respected businesswoman was disporting herself most shamelessly on stage, to the approbation of the men assembled!

Okay! That was fun. But, I have a serious (maybe Alpoesque:rolleyes: ) question. Do conductors really serve a purpose?;) Or, are they merely for comic relief?:o

Conductors are supposed to.

 

I played in the band for 6 years, and I would have hated to have tried to play for that guy - Zubin whoever. Half the time he did not appear to be in rhythm with the music. And since he is supposed to be giving you the rhythm, the orchestra was apparently ignoring him.

 

He looked, to me, more like he was trying to entertain the audience, than he was trying to lead the orchestra.

Makes me feel better that  was not the only one that thought the conductor was out of time with the music.

Maybe I’m weird, but I loved that sequence, and still do.

WoW!!!!!!!!! I was out of breath just listening to that. That was possibly the fastest tempo I've ever heard for that piece. The brass were probably double or triple tonguing at the beginning:o:lol::blush:

Ha!  Not weird at all!  It's excellent, 'specially considering it was created almost eighty years ago!   :)

 

But when I first saw it at age four or five, it was terrifying... made more so by a mean ol' aunt (my dear Aunt Bea, who was all of 12 years old at the time) whose primary delight in life was to scare the dickens out of her little nephew by any means possible.  As I recall, she assured me that the demons were quite real, and their sole purpose was to find and eat little boys - and I was on their list.  devil.gif

 

Fortunately, she mellowed considerably with age... and is now a sweet li'l ol' lady living in the foothills.  :wub:

My favorite movement.  Not for the animation or the story it's telling but for the violin parts.
