A lady hummed a tune which she heard in an episode of Pride and Prejudice on TV. This is the tune, beautifully played by Alfred Brendel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A film of great subtlety and beauty., 5 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very beautiful and touching film about a blind teenagers awakening to his gay sexuality. All handled with the greatest discretion, no palpitating sex scenes, a final kiss in the last few minutes, yet very moving.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Symphonist, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This set of CD's is quite marvelous. Hartmann lived in Munich throughout the Second World War, but as a protest against the Nazi regime refused to allow any of his music to be performed. His great faith that this regime would not last was realized in 1945, and he started a series of concerts in Munich called Musica Viva, in which were played many of the composers whose works had been banned during that regime. He gradually revised all the music which he had been writing during those years, and these eight enormously powerful works were the result. In them all the rage and pain which he felt during those years has been released in these magnificent works, They deserve to be far better known. Anyone who responds to the music of Stravinsky, Bartok, Hindemith or Shostakovich will find this music deeply rewarding, although his is a completely individual voice, ranging from quiet contemplation to huge and overwhelming climaxes. These performances are superb and the recorded sound does full justice to the very wide dynamic which the Netherlands Orchestras produce. Just buy this set of discs and discover one of the greatest composers of the mid twentieth century.

Loved this disc after hearing some of it on Radio 3. This is not a churchy organ sound, more a touch of the fairground. Great for parties..

This bulb gives a very bright light, but it is very cold light, completely lacking the warmth of non "daylight" bulbs.

3.0 out of 5 stars warm but baffled, 8 Nov. 2013
I have just had four of these radiators fitted, and their heating properties are very effective. But the programming system is totally baffling. The instructions in the booklet are in such small print that you need a magnifying glass to read them, and they must have been translated from the original language by a first year student in English. They are incomprehensible. So try the video on the Rointe website. Slightly easier to understand, once you have played it ten times, but then whilst trying to follow the instructions you have to pause it at every stage in order to do the programming, OK when the computer is in the same room, but what do you do when you want to programme the other three ? Then you get to the timer instructions, and the programme on the radiator refuses to do what the instructions are saying, and just keeps going back to the start. So in sheer frustration I have set them to manual, and bought some inexpensive time switches, far easier to programme and they are now working to my satisfaction. David Foulger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Varied music for different occasions., 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some of these items were chosen to include into a memorial service for my sister, and were most appropriate. The Astrid Varnay collection is a wonderful overview of her recordings,mostly live. Truly she was one of the greatest Wagnerian singers in the second half of the 20th Century, with a voice of great dramatic depth and power.
