But he later turned his music into two suites, which have become some of his best known work. ‘O mio babbino caro’ is performed by young Lauretta, who is pleading with her father to allow her to marry Rinuccio, the man she loves. Due to the music’s simple yet catchy melody, there have been countless reinterpretations of the piece including a cubist rendition and a jazzy cover.

The Story of Patti Smith Horses

Speaking of which, I still remember having to change my booking during a BA strike circa 2003 when they used the Flower Duet as their call holding music, and I had to listen to it for about three hours solid before someone answered. The best piece of music in the world wouldn’t survive that kind of test. I’am partly agree whith you.But don’t forget that the access to opera is not the same if you are in western Europe than for exemple in Asia where the tradition for opera is new. It’s true also that there’s no more universal music for everybody like in the 60’s with the Beatles. And to appreciate opera like for exemple the music of Mahler or a Beethoven sonata it takes a lot of time and there’s no mistery you have to hear it 10 or maybe 15 times. Me I started to hear a lot of it like Mahler after 35 years old.

Classical music is alive and well in China, Japan and Korea and their respective communities in the U.S. as evidenced by the classical music competitions. Although there’s certainly room for improvement in the composition arena from Asians to put it mildly. There is a superb performance of Haydn’s Symphony number 82, The Bear, on YouTube.

The Minnesota Orchestra names its new Music Director

“It is highly unusual to find a mall or shop or pub or coffee house playing anything other than highly generic pop music…” What a coincidence, people unfamiliar with classical music also believe it all sounds the same. Once a little enclave of high culture, they are now having to make room for breakdancing and popera. Apparently classical music — uniquely — is not to be allowed its own space on the BBC.

Who knows if that’s what Beethoven had in mind – but what’s beyond a shadow of a doubt is that this piece has come so famous it’s even featured in pop songs. But whoever the lucky recipient of this piece was, we can all agree that it’s one of the most charming pieces for piano ever written.
