SD, don't stop me at posting serious topics!

Shit, now I forgot what other pieces of Wagner are going into here!

Oh yes, Siegfried's funeral march, the greatest of them all, you can't stop me at being German:


Edit: New link. Conducted by Furtwängler, the demigod of conductors.

Where was I? Oh yes, Beethoven.

Symphonies. The kind of composition that made him immortal... or better said, he made himself immortal by composing the greatest instrumental pieces of music ever heard.

3rd (Edit: new link):

5th:

6th:

7th:

Very few composers have come close to those four, but regarding symphonies, everything pales in comparison to his ninth, in particular the grand first movement (Edit: new link):

There are thousands of princes, but there's only one BEETHOVEN. Music for the ages!

Starlings. To be viewed in full-screen!


Every year, the starlings are eating all cherries from my trees a week before being ripe, but that's OK, as long as they keep on doing this awesome stuff. Magnificient!

It's the music that makes this one of the greatest scenes in Western movies.
