Re: never-ending gallery

...of berlioz's life and work know next to nothing... Berlioz was quite a character! A good place to start in his music is his "Symphonie Fantastique" -- it is one of his most famous pieces, which is very enjoyable, and comes complete with its own semi-autobiographical story! It is an ins...

...as for shelley, he too had a guitar. never played it though, simply gave it to an appreciative girlfriend. we will never know for sure, but part of paganini's ' allegro maestoso ' (1st concerto) could possibly have inspired leonard cohen to write a couple of sentences in one of his novels... in ...

Re: Leonard Cohen: previously unpublished novel to be released in autumn

It's finally here. To what is your commment referring? This book was released in 2022 (in English, anyway, although you may be inclined to learn other languages in order to read translations of it), so it isn't exactly new news, but hey, I'm glad that you're excited about it! It actually really suc...

Sure, that's one way to read it -- the hard way! Alternatively, if you're an English speaker, you could just read the original, which was written in English. Your call!

...paganini... I have undoubtedly mentioned this before in coversations about Paganini, but I shall mention it again, because I think that it is interesting: in addition to being a virtuouso violinist and writing a lot of violin music, for which he is most famous, Paganini was also an exceptional c...

Re: Buffy Sainte-Marie

It was not a brush off. Yes, there are multiple issues here. One of which is how indigenous people accept new members as full members with full rights and privileges. I hope you can see the options with which others are more open to accepting new family members. The Massachusetts Historical Society...

Re: Buffy Sainte-Marie

...It's very important to remember that she was accepted by the indigenous community. I suppose that it is also very important to remember that, from the beginning of Buffy's career, she told everyone that she was Indigenous -- complete with a personal history that was entirely fabricated -- and th...

...p.s. Don't you just love the way all journalists generalise? ;-) Ha-ha! Of course, to avoid making unjustified generalisations (mind you, one could argue that most generalisations are unjustified), a person merely has to say, "many, most, some, a lot, quite a few", or even better, &quo...

Re: The 10 most underrated Leonard Cohen songs

Underrated by whom? :roll: Regardless, I think that "underrated" is a poor choice of word for this article's title, for it implies that people know of the thing in question and do not rate it highly. However, the author of this condescending piece of drivel provides no evidence to support ...

absolutely fantastic, both your picture and the interesting article. i am not sure if this is three different poses of the same chickadee or if it portrays three different chickadees. the one on the right is recognisable as the little fellow that perched on your finger, but they all look so lovely,...

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

Hey, 4, I do recall your mentioning on the forum that you'd been to that December 2010 concert in Las Vegas, but I do not recall having met you, although there were so many forum members there, it may well have happened!
