My memory is quite foggy, but yesterday I was talking with my coworkers and I remembered I danced to Mano Negra and Jello Biafra in a free gig in Rio more than 30 years ago. It was an event related tp the ECO92 summit.
Of course they didn’t have the slighest idea of what I was talking about.
No. Sorry I take Beethoven’s 9th a little close to heart. He was nearly 100% deaf when he wrote what I consider the best piece of music ever written. And if you’re Gen-X like me, the definitive version is “Ode to Freedom” performed in Berlin in 1989:
I will never turn down an opportunity to listen to the entire symphony, but I would suggest as a general rule to not talk down to people you don’t know on the internet. I am a Boomer, and have performed the 9th to paying audiences. There is no definitive version. Enjoy all of them.
Agreed. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve played it since stumbling across it. Glad that you’re enjoying it, too! I might have to move Brazilian Portuguese up higher on my language learning list after this.
