Adagio

En af de første klassiske kompositioner, jeg lærte at elske var denne Tomasio Albinoni’s Adagio. Den fås så også har jeg lige opdaget i en fortolkning af nogen af favoritdrengene – Il Divo:

Jeg fandt også en version med en sangerinde, der hedder Zara. Det er en så smuk sang, at det stort set er ligemeget, hvad de gør ved den, så er den stadig smuk.

Det var en nu gammel ven, der selv elskede den, der introducerede mig for den og lige siden har jeg elsket den. Hvis han læser med, glæder det ham sikkert, at jeg husker ham for netop den her sang. Til gengæld ved jeg at en anden meget klassisktro ven på den anden side sikkert river hårene ud af hovedet på sig selv ved bare tanken om andet end originalopsætningen. Døm selv, her er for enhver smag.

Mere gåsehud

Lige her til sidst faldt jeg over en ung gut, der åbenbart har stillet op i den italienske version af X-factor. Han hedder Nicola Gargaglia og hvis Alexandra Burke giver mig gåsehud (det gør hun bigtime), så gør ham her altså også – Som dommeren sagde om Alexandra – “En klasse for sig” – hør selv:

Adagio

One of the first classical pieces I learned to love was Tomasio Albinoni’s Adagio. I now discovered that it’s also been done in a version with some of my favorite boys – Il Divo:

I also found a version with a singer called Zara. It’s such a beautiful tune, that it hardly matters what they to it, it’s still great.

It was an old friend who loved it himself who introduced me to it and I have loved it ever since. If he’s reading this blog he’ll propely be pleased that I remember him for this tune. On the other hand I’m pretty sure another very classic true friend would rip his hair out just thinking about anything but the original. Judge for yourself, here is one for every taste.

More goosebombs

Just now I came across this young guy whho appearantly was in the Itallian verion of X-Factor. His called. Nicola Gargaglia (official website under construction) and if Alexandra Burke gives me goosbombs (she does bigtime), this guy does too – like the judges said about Alexandra – “In a league of his own” – listen:
