i want to put some more music in here BrahmsA major CaprIt some disco music in here of my own we'll see ! Dream of a Future concert Scene whre Classical music is . I can't focus when i see dem white skinned muscle it takes me to the hereafter . I'm obsessed with muscle hopew i win a loterry . But I never buy tickets ! oh well !
not relegated to the never visited museum or the back seat
with a car radio while someone is relaxing but is right there in the big stage arena like Hollywood Bowl used to be (I fitrst saw Ilana Vered play the Brahms 2nd concerto there !) with other concerts musics - we must find a way to bring more audiences to classical music while keeping the integrity of all said musics in place no watering down but tee-shirts , booze , shorts and just plain old folks listening to the music
that thrills them whether it be LouReed and Patti Smith or The Gogo's or Unsuk Chin and Matthew Pintscher . .In “8 Songs for a Mad King”, Davies uses extended techniques to the extreme. The strings use extreme, icky glissandi, the winds use flutter tongue and overtones, but the party really comes from the tenor that plays the part of the mad king. He goes nuts with a range that covers somewhere in the ballpark of five and a half octaves, going from the Fry register to extreme falsetto. If there is such thing as whistle singing for men, I sure hope this guy uses it! Anyway, in using this extreme range, the vocal performer often changes registers quickly and unexpectedly, heightening the effect of the king’s madness. There are also many “unpure” timbres the king uses, again to further the effect of madness, but also to reinforce ideas that are present in the text.In Schwantner’s piece, one of my favorite effects he uses is rolling the cymals on the timpani, while changing pitch. This creates a very eerie feel, as the long ringing of the cymbal is what vibrates the head of the timpani, further changing the sound we areSheCow America fails and falls once again into the powerful spiritual battle of Beelzebub the heCow . I make oil paintings and jointcompound pics on dee side . mum can ya spare some change . my cat needs sum chowchupar . I deem to make classicalmusic to and of the streets like Berlioz and that "Guerillafag" "Crazy Niggah" composer who died in New York City in 1990 . He is featured singing on the first recording of 8 Songs for a Mad King .Eight Songs for a Mad King is a monodrama by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies with a libretto by Randolph Stow, based on words of George III. The work was written for the South-African actor Roy Hart and the composer's ensemble, the Pierrot Players. It was premiered on 22 April 1969.

Lasting half an hour, it is scored for a baritone with an extraordinary command of extended techniques covering more than five octaves, and six players (Pierrot ensemble + percussion):

flute (doubling piccolo)
clarinet
percussion (1 player): railway whistle, snare drum, 2 suspended cymbals, foot cymbal, 2 wood blocks, bass drum, chains, ratchet, tom-toms, tamtam!!!, tambourine, rototoms, toy bird-calls, 2 temple blocks, wind chimes, crotales, sleigh bells!!!, glockenspiel, steel bars !!!, crow, didgeridoo!!!
piano (doubling harpsichord and dulcimer)
violin
cello
The songs derive from tunes played by an extant mechanical organ owned by George III, tunes that he attempted to train bullfinches to sing:

The Sentry (King Prussia's Minuet)
The Country Walk (La Promenade)
The Lady-In-Waiting (Miss Musgrave's Fancy)
To Be Sung on the Water (The Waterman)
The Phantom Queen (He's Ay A-Kissing Me)
The Counterfeit (Le Conterfaite)
Country Dance (Scotch Bonnett)
The Review (A Spanish March)
The action unfolds as a soliloquy by the king, the players being placed on stage (ideally) in large birdcages, and climaxes in his snatching and smashing the violin.
In life as in the movie and Alan Bennets play George regains his senses .I just finished reading Alan Bennet'sThe Uncommon Reader ! Everything he does is fine Much gentler book than his earlier The History Boys .I loved that !

The score is published by Boosey & Hawkes, and its cover shows a famous excerpt in which the staves are arranged like the bars of a birdcage.[1]

Besides Hart, exponents of this work have included William Pearson, Michael Rippon, Thomas Meglioranza, Julius Eastman and Vincent Ranallo. The Swedish baritone Olle Perss Good day to your Honesty
on performed the work in Stockholm in the 1990s. The British baritone Richard Suart has performed the piece in Gelsenkirchen‚ Milan‚ Helsinki‚ Strasbourg‚ Stavanger and Paris; in 1987 The Musical Times described Suart's take as "compelling from start to finish".[2] Welsh baritone Kelvin Thomas sang the role at Munich's Kammerspiele Schauspielhaus in 2011, and in a production by Music Theatre Wales in 2013.

The Sentry Lyrics
Here is the key of the kingdom
You are a pretty fellow:
Next month I shall give you a cabbage
Undo the door!
Who has stolen my key?
Ach! my kingdom is snakes and dancing
My kingdom is locks and slithering. Make room!
Pity me, pity me, pity me. Child
Child whose son are you?8 Songs for aMadKing

The Queen's Lady-in -Waiting Song

Madam let us talk, let us talk
Madam I mean no harm
Only to remember, to remember
What it was that through silk
Lace, linen and brocade
Swooped on my needle. To remember
Madam, let us talk, talk, talk, talk
I mean no harm, no harm, no harm, no
The Phantom Queen's Song
Where is the Queen? Why does she not visit me?
Esther, Esther, O my heart's ease
Have they chained you too, my darling, in a stable?
Do they starve you, strike you, scorn you, ape your howls?
They say some other woman is your wife
But the Queen's name is Esther, Esther
Fall on my eyes, O bride like a starless night
