What one peice of classical music sums up images for you?................For some its Wagner "Ride of the Valkyries" for me its Samuel Barber "Adagio for Strings" .........the reason? It was the peice of music playing when one of the lads in the Zepce Hilton had an ND resulting in a PEZZ Head and his mate with a scarred face and a lot of bad dreams.

I have a likeing for that classical piano stuff that you hear the pilots play before take off (usually BA flights). Haven't a clue who or what, but it's smooth and soft (like me) and relaxing before take off.

It's most likely to be the 'Flower Duet' from 'Lakme' by Delibes.

Music that does it for me:

'Entry of the Queen of Sheba' - Bach
'1812 Overture' - Tchaikovsky (probably because it's about the Frogs getting beaten)
'Spitfire Prelude' - Walton

VB must be because just like any officer he has his information wrong :D

It would be:

"Arrival of the Queen of Sheba" by Handel

Entry just conjures up images of sexual debaucherywhich though entertaining to watch were I believe not what Handel had in mind 8O :twisted: 8)

Beethoven's symphony no 3.....
Would be hard pressed to decide which part,
But if I had to probably be Fidelio...
All string and waltzes...
Perfect! 8)

Opps forgot the image it conjures up! duh!
It's the whole stage production... breathtaking!
Like mime, but it tugs at you!
All passion and energy!
Silly! :oops:


But it's still David Gray to study to!

Quite correct, LWM. My error is quite an achievement, as I have listened to the piece so often, and read the sleeve notes so many times.

Damned batman must have put something in me mornin' tea....

What about the Elgar Cello Concerto , first movement in particular? There is something about it, possibly it's to do with it being almost a Requiem for the Great War.

Myfanwy - a Welsh hymn - but you have to have lost someone close to you to understand why.

Ilkley Moor - the sound of twenty years of comradeship.

Dance me to the end of time by Leonard Cohen - still the only song that my wife and I can dance to without falling over each others feet.
