Beethoven’s 6th Symphony (Pastoral) A Love of Nature The Pastoral Symphony is a charming masterpiece which both paints a picture of nature and describes man’s feelings towards it.

Beethoven’s great love of nature, the delight in strolling through the countryside in Vienna, the fact that he always found his equilibrium in the heart of nature, all these inspired him to create his sixth symphony.

Beethoven’s 6th Symphony is filled with colorful sounds, simple folk tunes, nice development, and a feeling of calm beauty. It contains meaningful emotional aspect which reflects mankind’s feelings towards the natural world. Beethoven began sketching out his 6th symphony in 1802 and finished it in 1808.

“How happy I am to be able to walk among the shrubs, the trees, the woods, the grass and the rocks! For the woods, the trees and the rocks give man the resonance he needs,” Beethoven said in the summer of 1808.

The premiere of the 6th Symphony was probably the grandest musical event in Beethoven’s life. It was a massive concert packed with indelible moments of brand new Beethoven music! This programmatic endeavor is clearly expressed through the suggestive title of the symphony, as well as through the titles of each movement. When Beethoven found refuge in the midst of nature, he jotted down themes inspired by the trill of birds, the trickling of creeks or the rustle of leaves. In a notebook from 1803 was found an outline of a river’s trickling with the additional note: “The greater the river, the more grave the tone.” Beethoven spread out the symphony into five movements and gave each movement a little subtitle explaining what it was about.

I. “Happy Arrival” (Awakening of cheerful feelings upon arrival in the country) The Pastoral symphony opens with warmth and calm, setting the scene as we arrive in the countryside. This has a programmatic indication. In this movement, we find a genuine popular sonority through the choice of instruments neatly weaved together. [Allegro ma non troppo]

II. “By the Brook” (The natural scene of the stream) This slow movement is a beautiful depiction of the delicate nature of… nature itself. It is a wonderful scene of nature with exceptionally musical themes in the pure pastoral air. You can almost breathe the fresh country air! It is more of a description of sensations rather than images. Towards the end, we find the onomatopoeic sounds of birds. [Andante molto mosso]

III. “Merrymaking” (Joyful gathering of countryfolk) Now we turn our attention to the loud, jolly peasants who live in the countryside. Here we see them celebrate with a joyful dance. Of course, these are simple folks, so the music itself is simple, but very energetic. [Allegro]
IV. “ThunderStorm” (Heavy rumblings of natural forces) 29:21 With no pause between the previous movement and this movement, there is a dramatic surprise, hinting at trouble ahead. Yes, a storm is brewing! Beethoven inserts fantastic lightning crashes and a whirl of wind. He renders the stages of the storm as it unravels on the horizon and moves closer more and more threatening.
The instruments with grave chords – cellos and double basses – through their sounds announce the storm, then the staccato sounds of the violins render the falling raindrops, and through the timpani and the flutes we sense the thunder and lightning. Then comes the rainbow. Above all these images, we feel the tense disposition that captures man facing the realities of nature. There is an urgent sense of human fear since humanity is powerless against the forces of nature. When the storm is over, all living creatures come to the surface, taking their place in the natural cycle. This is rendered by a choral of flutes which come as a sunray. [Allegro]

V. “Shepherd’s Song” (Expression of thanks when the storm is over) As the storm fades away, all the animals emerge, and there’s a general feeling of relief. Sunshine reappears, and everyone’s mind is relaxed again. This is the song of gratitude towards nature. It is a calm movement, full of grace. It starts out quiet, but quickly gets faster and happier. The music is fairly simple, but this makes its emotions of gratitude endearing. [Allegretto]

Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, through its simplicity, is just sincere and natural.

Se împlinesc 423 de ani de la Bătălia de la Giurgiu împotriva lui Sinan Pașa


https://newsteam.ro/politica/se-implinesc-423-de-ani-de-la-batalia-de-la-giurgiu-impotriva-lui-sinan-pasa/20/10/2018/

Bătălia de la Giurgiu, desfășurată între 1520 octombrie 1595, a valorificat avantajul tactic obținut de oastea munteano-transilvană condusă de Mihai Viteazul în Bătălia de la Călugăreni. Trupele otomane în retragere au fost surprinse la Giurgiu, iar robii luați ostatici au fost eliberați. După un bombardament efectuat de artileria toscană cetatea Giurgiu a fost cucerită de aliații creștini.

În urma bătăliei de la Călugăreni din 13 august, în care și-au pierdut viața pașa Hasan de Timișoara, Khidr și Mustafa de Bosnia, armata otomană a păstrat suficientă forță încât să ocupe capitala Țării Românești. Conducătorul ei, marele vizir Sinan Pașa, a trecut la implementarea instrucțiunilor cu care a venit de la Constantinopol, acelea de transformare a Țării Românești în pașalâc. Instalat la mănăstirea Radu Vodă, el a început să facă numiri în funcțiile aparatului administrativ otoman.

Mihai Viteazul a fost nevoit totuși să se retragă spre munți, așteptând întăririle ce urmau să vină din Transilvania. La 12 septembrie oastea munteano-transilvană se găsea la Stoenești, în așteptarea armatei de întărire conduse personal de Sigismund Bathory.La 26 august Sinan Pașa a ocupat și Târgoviște, unde a ridicat o întăritură de pământ.

Sigismund Báthory a trecut pasul Branului în fruntea unei armate de 13.200 de mercenari, 8.000 de secui, 1.500 de germani trimiși de arhiducele Maximilin, la care se adăuga corpul de 300 de artileriști din Toscana înarmați cu tunuri, în total 23.000 de oameni. Joncțiunea cu cei 8.000 de oșteni ai lui Mihai a avut loc în pădurile de pe Dâmbovița.

O importantă consecință a campaniei din toamna lui 1595, încheiată cu victoria de la Giurgiu, a fost mutarea capitalei Munteniei de la Bucureștidin nou la Târgoviște, mai departe de Dunăre și astfel de pericolul otoman. Aproape toate actele lui Mihai Viteazu din anii 1596-1599 au fost date la Târgoviște.

Corina Creţu: Ce am avertizat s-a întâmplat, Curtea de Justiţie a UE a condamnat România. Am vorbit acest lucru cu Viorica Dăncilă de un an


https://adevarul.ro/news/politica/corina-cretu-avertizat-s-a-intamplat-curtea-justitie-ue-condamnat-romania-vorbit-lucru-viorica-dancila-an-zile-1_5bc9ef4ddf52022f75aa1d23/index.html

Comisarul european, Corina Creţu, a declarat, vineri, că a avertizat asupra condamnării pe care România a primit-o de la Curtea de Justiţie a Uniunii Europene (CJUE) pentru neîndeplinirea directivei privind depozitele de deşeuri şi că a vorbit cu premierul Viorica Dăncilă de mai bine de un an despre acest subiect.

Ştiţi foarte bine că mi-am făcut datoria de a avertiza statele membre, nu este numai România avertizată. Suntem undeva pe la media Uniunii Europene. Ideea este că nu mai avem foarte mult timp, deci am repetat faptul că sunt conştientă că avem multe întârzieri şi datorită adoptării târzii a legislaţiei. Nu am pus nicio clipă toată întârzierile pe seama guvernelor. Dar, pe de altă parte, sigur că uneori sunt exasperată, dar nu numai în România …dar de ritmul lent aşa cum spuneam mai ales în domeniul infrastructurii de transport”, a declarat Corina Creţu.

Întrebată cum vede faptul că premierul Viorica Dăncilă încearcă să atragă investitori din Arabia în condiţiile în care România nu reuşeşte să atragă fonduri europene, comisarul european a precizat că este de părere că principala preocupare ar trebuie să fie aceea de a cheltui în primul rând banii care sunt gratuiţi, banii oferiţi de Uniunea Europeană prin proiecte. “Eu aş merge pentru accelerarea mai rapidă a cheltuirii banilor europeni şi a vorbi despre aceste parteneriate public-private pentru care statul va plăti, cetăţenii vor plăti după ce vom cheltui alocaţia pe care o avem. Avem miliarde de euro care aşteaptă la Bruxelles”, a completat Creţu.

Comisarul european a precizat că a avertizat de mai bine de un an că ţara noastră va fi condamnată pentru nerepsectarea directivei privind depozitele de deşeuri.

“Din păcate, după cum vedeţi, ceea ce am avertizat că România va fi sancţionată de Curtea Europeană de Justiţie s-a întâmplat ieri (joi-n.r.). Eu am vorbit acest lucru cu dânsa (cu premierul Viorica Dăncilă- n.r.) de un an de zile. Dar este singura condiţionalitate exactă care nu a fost îndeplinită, aceea în domeniul mediilor şi a depozitării deşeurilor, nu văd nici progrese spectaculoase şi acest lucru mă doare pentru că într-adevăr eu sunt comisar european responsabil pentru 28 de state membre, dar este normal, nu este nimic anormal să îmi pese puţin mai mult de România. Este ţara din care provin şi este una din cele mai sărace ţări”, a arătat Corina Creţu.

Today’s Holiday:
Dusshera

During the 10 days of Dussehra, scenes from the epic poem Ramayana are enacted. The epic tells the story of Lord Rama who wins the lovely Sita for his wife, only to have her carried off by evil 10-headed Ravana, demon king of Lanka. Ultimately, Rama slays Ravana, and the forces of good triumph over evil. The dramatizations with music, held throughout northern India, are considered at their best in Delhi. On the 10th day, immense effigies of Ravana, his brother, and his son (all of them stuffed with firecrackers) explode in dramatic bursts of flame and noise.

Lideri PSD: “Nu se mai poate concentra, este adesea incoerent” – Aktual24

Jurnalista Ioana Ene Dogioiu anunta, citand surse din cadrul PSD, ca Liviu Dragnea a cedat psihic. „Tot mai multi il privesc ca pe un moroi”, spune jurnalista.

„Secretul pe care putini sunt dispusi sa-l rosteasca public, dar spun pe surse, este ca Liviu Dragnea a clacat. Este inconjurat de fronturile pe care le-a deschis cu toata lumea, este sabotat din partid si din ALDE, este paralizat de disperare si nu se mai poate concentra, este adesea incoerent. Asta spun cu stupoare, pe la colturi, cei care interactioneaza cu el. Iar cine i-a vazut privirea si discursul la ultimele aparitii publice are toate motivele sa creada ca asa si este”, informeaza Dogioiu pe ziare.com.

Ea mai spune ca liderul PSD ramane tot mai singur.

„Nu are in jur niciun prieten, ci doar servitori umili (inca) care-l pandesc ca sa mai stoarca un avantaj, dar vor fi primii care ii vor musca beregata cand va veni finalul. Sau de-a dreptul dusmani care deja incep sa teasa urzeala viitorului tron. Iar partidul si coalitia functioneaza in consecinta prabusirii liderului maxim de ieri. Apelul in procesul Bombonica poate fi tergiversat cu tot felul de artificii, poate CCR ii va mai face un cadou cu completurile de 5, dar de scapat nu va scapa. Si stie.

Referendumul era ultima lui salvare. Urma sa se suie pe rezultatul favorabil, sa-l confiste si sa-l transforme in trambulina unei relansari politice antieuropene catre prezidentiale, o relansare care sa-i dea anvergura necesara sa isi rezolve fara nicio opozitie problemele penale. In schimb, ce sa vezi? Referedumul s-a transformat intr-un mare sondaj national care a aratat ca in Romania Dragnofobia bate homofobia”, mai spune Dogioiu.

O alta dezvaluire facuta de jurnalista este ca liderii PSD insista cu ordonanta de amnistie si gratiere, insa nu se inteleg asupra pragului.

„Prin PSD circula drafturile unui proiect de aministie si gratiere, dar e greu de stabilit pragul. Pentru Dragnea o limita maxima de 5 ani ajunge, dar Valacov si multi altii ar ramane pe afara. Voiculescu vrea si el sa-si curete cazierul, dar cu cei zece ani ai sai e foarte greu sa prinzi o masura de clementa.

Voiculescu si multi altii, precum Nicusor Constantinescu, ar avea nevoie de revizuire, dar aceea e o cale cu mult mai lunga si mai nesigura, pentru ca depinde de decizii succesive ale unor judecatori care nu pot fi chiar toti presati sa emita achitari pe banda rulanta. Cu un Dragnea pe care tot mai multi il privesc ca pe un moroi, fiecare trage in directia care i se pare a propriei scapari”, a mai spus jurnalista.

PSD leaders: “It can not concentrate, it is often incoherent” – Aktual24

Journalist Ioana Ene Dogioiu announces, citing sources from PSD, that Liviu Dragnea gave up psychically. “More and more people look at him like a moroi,” says the journalist.
“The secret that few people are willing to say publicly, but say the sources, is that Liviu Dragnea has cracked. He is surrounded by the fronts he opened with everyone, is sabotaged by the party and the ALDE, is paralyzed by despair and can no longer concentrate, is often incoherent. That’s what I say with stupor, on the corners, those who interact with him. And who has seen her look and the discourse at the latest public appearances has every reason to believe it is, “says Dogioiu on newspapers.com.
She also says the PSD leader remains lonely.
“There is no friend around, but only humble servants (still) who are looking for him to make an advantage, but will be the first to bite his throat when the end comes. Or rightly enemies who are already beginning to cut the warp of the future throne. And the party and the coalition are working as a result of the collapse of the yesterday’s maximum leader. The call to the Bombonica process may be delayed with all sorts of fireworks, maybe CCR will make a gift with the 5, but the escape will not escape. And he knows.
The referendum was his last rescue. It was to go on the favorable outcome, confiscate it and transform it into the trampoline of an anti-European political relaunch to the presidential, a re-launch that would give it the necessary scope to solve without any opposition the criminal problems. Instead, what do you see? The referendum turned into a large national survey that showed Dragnofobia in Romania beating homophobia, “Dogioiu says.
Another disclosure made by the journalist is that PSD leaders insist on the amnesty and pardon order, but they do not understand the threshold.
“PSD circulates the drafts of an amnesty and pardon project, but it is hard to set the threshold. For Dragnea a maximum of 5 years is enough, but Valacov and many others will stay out. Voiculescu wants him to clean up his record, but with his ten years it’s very hard to get a measure of clemency.
Voiculescu and many others, such as Nicusor Constantinescu, would need a review, but that is a much longer and insecure way, because it depends on successive decisions of some judges who can not even be pressed to issue concessions. With a Dragnea, which more and more people look like moroi, each one pulls in the direction that seems to be his own escape, “the journalist said.

Pierre Trudeau (1919)

As prime minister of Canada from 1968–79 and 1980–84, Trudeau advocated a strong federal government and took a determined stand against the Quebec separatist movement. Despite his opposition to Quebec’s independence, he supported Canadian sovereignty and secured for the country a new constitution in 1982 that precipitated its official independence from Britain. He also had French adopted as an official state language. How did Trudeau figure into an alleged plot to assassinate Fidel Castro?

Women in Canada Finally Recognized as “Persons” (1929)
In the early 20th century, Canadian women were often prohibited from hearing court testimony deemed inappropriate. Emily Murphy protested and became the first woman magistrate in Canada—and all of the British Empire—but her rulings were often challenged because women were not legally considered “persons.” Murphy and four other women, the “Famous Five,” submitted a petition for constitutional clarification. The subsequent Persons Case granted Canadian women personhood. What else did it establish? More…

Ridere non Deridere. Condividere non Dividere. Parlare non Sparlare. A volte basta una sillaba per fare la differenza tra Eleganza e Volgarità. Cit.


Ridere non Deridere.
Condividere non Dividere.
Parlare non Sparlare.
A volte basta una sillaba per fare
la differenza tra Eleganza e Volgarità.

Cit.

Laugh, do not to deride.
Share, do not Split.
Appreciate, don’t deride.
Sometimes, just a syllable makes the difference between Elegance and Vulgarity.

Watch “The Traitor_Martha Wainwright_Leonard Cohen_I’m Your Man_720HD-022711.avi” on YouTube (Read the philosophy that inspired Leonard Cohen in writing this marvelous poem)


A divine composition based on a unique poem, made a complete Leonard Cohen pièce de résistance, and the rendition beyond the realm of words by Martha Wainwright not to forget the out of this world musical arrangement: I am so happy to be able to appreciate this historic moment of excellence in the making. The explanation given by Mr. Cohen to the meaning of the verse describes a predicament in which each and every one of us found ourselves at least once in life, which makes it our life story, within which we can dissolve completely.
The world is indeed the theater in which we’re actors, directors and spectators:

The traitor, by Leonard Cohen

Now the Swan it floated on the English river
Ah the Rose of High Romance it opened wide
A sun tanned woman yearned me through the summer
and the judges watched us from the other side
I told my mother “Mother I must leave you
preserve my room but do not shed a tear
Should rumour of a shabby ending reach you
it was half my fault and half the atmosphere”
But the Rose I sickened with a scarlet fever
and the Swan I tempted with a sense of shame
She said at last I was her finest lover
and if she withered I would be to blame
The judges said you missed it by a fraction
rise up and brace your troops for the attack
Ah the dreamers ride against the men of action
Oh see the men of action falling back
But I lingered on her thighs a fatal moment
I kissed her lips as though I thirsted still
My falsity had stung me like a hornet
The poison sank and it paralysed my will
I could not move to warn all the younger soldiers
that they had been deserted from above
So on battlefields from here to Barcelona
I’m listed with the enemies of love
And long ago she said “I must be leaving,
Ah but keep my body here to lie upon
You can move it up and down and when I’m sleeping
Run some wire through that Rose and wind the Swan”
So daily I renew my idle duty
I touch her here and there — I know my place
I kiss her open mouth and I praise her beauty
and people call me traitor to my face
Leonard Cohen: “It was called “The traitor”. It was about the feeling that we have of betraying some mission that we were mandated to fulfill, and being unable to fulfill it, and then coming to understand that the real mandate was not to fulfill it, and that the deeper courage was to stand guiltless in the predicament in which you found yourself”.

A Thousand Kisses Deep (poem)

You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat
You’d have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet
My mirror twin, my next of kin
I’d know you in my sleep
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep
I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep
I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and high
Behind the veils of sheer deceit
Our perfect porn aristocrat
So elegant and cheap
I’m old but I’m still into that
A thousand kisses deep
I’m good at love, I’m good at hate
It’s in between I freeze
Been working out but it’s too late
(It’s been too late for years)
But you look good, you really do
They love you on the street
If you were here I’d kneel for you
A thousand kisses deep
The autumn moved across your skin
Got something in my eye
A light that doesn’t need to live
And doesn’t need to die
A riddle in the book of love
Obscure and obsolete
Till witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep
But I’m still working with the wine
Still dancing cheek to cheek
The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
But the heart will not retreat
I ran with Diz, I sang with Ray
I never had their sweep
But once or twice they let me play
A thousand kisses deep
I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep
But you don’t need to hear me now
And every word I speak
It counts against me anyhow
A thousand kisses deep

A THOUSAND KISSES DEEP (SPOKEN WORD) LYRICS

You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat

You’d have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet
My mirrored twin, my next of kin
I’d know you in my sleep
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened like a
Lily to the heat
You see I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second hand physique
With all he is, and all he was

A thousand kisses deep

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and hide behind
The veils of sheer deceit

I’m old but I’m still into that

A thousand kisses deep

I’m good at love, I’m good at hate
It’s in between I freeze
Been working out, but its too late
It’s been too late for years
But you look good, you really do
The pride of Boogie Street,
Somebody must have died for you
A thousand kisses deep

The autumn moved across your skin
Got something in my eye
A light that doesn’t need to live
And doesn’t need to die
A riddle in the book of love
Obscure and obsolete
Until witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep

And I’m still working with the wine
Still dancing cheek to cheek
The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
But the heart will not retreat
I ran with Diz and Dante
I never had their sweep
But once or twice they let me play
A thousand kisses deep
