Ek was op Hoerskool, die minister van Onderwys het ons skool besoek en hierdie simfonie van Beethoven was die musiek wat ons massa gimnastiekvertoning vir die besoek begelei het. Dit was harde werk vir 'n hele paar maande, maar die moeite werd en dit was eintlik iets aanskouliks, noudat ek daaraan terugdink! Waar's die goeie ou dae!
When I was at Secondary School, we had a mass gymnastics display for the visiting minister of Education and Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony 5th Movement was the music our teachers selected for the display! What a wonderful time it was! This was also on my music menu for Saturday mornings when I did my school homework. On the verandah - with the large old oak trees a few metres away...all the farm-sounds...circled by mountains....and the echo of a running river not very far away...geeee...this is life!
In this next track you can listen to Waldo de los Rios playing the same piece of music, of course [for me] better than the orchestra in this video! I'm a lover of Waldo de los Rios! This is only a taster, but quite a bit to enjoy!
On THIS LINK you can follow a few blog-links with the music-link of Waldo de los Rios.The link will open in a new window.
