Sergei Rachmaninov – Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

Sergei Rachmaninov – Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini ———————————- A note from the author(s): Dear, friends, I thank you for your nice comments and I am glad that you are enjoying these beautiful musical master pieces. I noticed that, from time to time, people will ask why is the image of Jean-Marc Barr on some of the clips. Well, it is a long story. Me (Mare79, a “name” from the image) and “Mayol” (a friend of mine) have made these several classical music videos during the time we were on one forum once. The picture of Jean-Marc Bar was the image of his avatar, and since all these videos were generally his idea, we decided to place a full photo of Jean-Marc in them. Jean-Marc had a role in one of his movies where he played a character named Mayol, so. . . It was just an idea at that time, but it still remained after all, since we didn’t want to remove the video in order to upload a new one without this photo and make this clip an invalid entry in your favourites playlists. So, the smaller image represents the photo of the composer. Enjoy the music, and have a nice day. Best regards to all.

    @Myrtle791 You seem to be confusing this with Nina Rota’s somewhat similar film score for TLOTGM (also on YouTube). ‘The Warsaw Concerto’ of Richard Adinsell is another one of this ilk; then there’s Hubert Bath’s ‘Cornish Rhapsody’, not to mention ‘The Dream of Olwen’ of course. . . it would be a brave man who claimed he knew who plagiarised whom among these last, but they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, of course!

    Was this selection used by Walt Disney in “Fantasia” and called “The Legend of Glass Mountain?” We used to listen to this at the service club at the Defense Language Institute (The Army Language School, at that time. ’58-’59 ). One of my favorites. Thanks for including it. My mother used to play Rachmaninoff’s “Piano Concerto #2,” I believe it was, when I was a kid. Greatly regret not having finished my piano lessons. Envy those who can entertain with such talent. -Dave F. -

    Io adoro Rachmaninov da sempre. . . è semplicemente straordinario. . . la sua musica ti coinvolge,ti porta in un’altra dimensione. . . è di un romanticismo struggente e tocca nel profondo l’anima di chi lo sa apprezzare. . . io,ne sono innamorata da sempre. . . . io,Rositarach. . . .

    The clip is primarily musical. As far as I can see, nobody else had the “problem” about the “brain embedding image”. Don’t mind the image and simply enjoy the music like all these good people, that’s what it’s for. ;-)
