...and did you ever feel like you were in love with someone who died 80 years ago?

I'll have to listen to this later today to get the full scope but I will admit that I hadn't heard of him. Sorry.

Rooster, this is not my most favourite rendering of his BOLERO, but I love the flashmob approach to this wonderful music, let's dance and sing in the streets and all that!

Lol, no, I didn't know his birthday was today.  :)

I seem to recall reading once that Ravel wrote Bolero on a bet that he could write a significant piece of music with only one continuously repeated theme.

Tink, that bit of information factoid about Bolero is a jewel !!!

Lol, Virginia, I forgot that his 143rd birthday was yesterday.

Yes, I like his bolero ...

A very nice performance!

Virginia Marianne

Ah Marianne, yes I am checking my Geneva clock and indeed you are reading this already in tomorrow!

Lol, Virginia, my confirmation comes very late ... <3:)
