Sunshine of Your Love

Rock Notes
Sunshine of Your Love

One of the defining qualities of heavy metal is guitar riffs: short, memorable, repeating phrases played on a distorted guitar as a foundation for a song.

Jazz Notes
These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)

‘Spread It Abroad’ is a long-forgotten musical revue from 1935 that had at least one memorable moment – ‘These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You).’ Eric Maschwitz, the song writer, around 1936 wrote ‘These Foolish Things’ for Anna May Wong.

O Welche Lust (Oh, What Joy) – Prisoners’ Chorus in Fidelio

Classical Notes
O Welche Lust (Oh, What Joy) – Prisoners’ Chorus in Fidelio

For almost two centuries, Beethoven’s Fidelio has enjoyed a very special place in the world of opera. Its celebration of married love at its most elevated, along with the triumph of political freedom over the forces of tyranny, has ensured Fidelio a mythic status — akin to Beethoven’s own Ninth Symphony — in much of the world. It is a work of art which offers a well-nigh religious, awe-inspiring experience in...
