Sic Semper Tyrannis

Tuesday, January 01, 2008


First, apologies I did not show up at the party. The Empress had to work bright and early. I do offer to host next year's party.

Anyway some festive music!

First a slower than it should be rendition of Franz von Suppé's Light Calvary Overture:
The performance and recording do not do the piece justice.

Moving onto our next overture the famous one by Gioachino Rossini performed by the Berlin Philharmonic under the baton of Claudio Abbado – a world class orchestra & conductor. Not only is the performance top notch but the recording is darned good too.

Part I:

Part II contains the portion of the piece we all know, the joy of the performers and conductor come across loud and clear visually as well as via audio!

BTW, the last two are parts I & II Of The William Tell Overture.

Happy New Year to all!
