11:53 pm - I wish ...
I wish I had someone to share Tchaikovsky with. Particularly some parts of the Nutcracker Suite that tell me a completely different story than is told by the ballet.

Someday I want to tell those stories.

I just find it hard to imagine anyone wanting to hear them, or understanding them if they did.

You know, I might be at that. :-)

But really, who listens to Tchaikovsky these days?

Strange children like me who were raised on classical, big band swing, and other forms of REAL music... :P

Have a good one, I'm gone for a week and the computer is about to be unplugged... I will have MASSIVE amounts of catching up to do when I get back, I know I probably won't get to them all...- but your LJ will be one of those I specifically catch up on! Take care!

Took the words out of my mouth. ;)

Ooh! And I found some of my missing CD's today that I hadn't gotten around to ripping yet, like Tchaikovsky, Liszt, Vivaldi, etc. Now if I can just find that other stack that's missing...

There are very few stories that a storyteller would chose to tell that I wouldn't want to hear - and you would be surprised about understanding them.

I don't actually know the Nutcracker Suite story. Because the story I hear in the music has nothing to do with the ballet, and I would rather keep my story.

*I* want to hear them. But I don't think that's what you meant.

I LOVE Tchaikovsky, and anyone who doesn't is probably a gauche barbarian not worth wasting time over.

Just in general.

Haha! Well, some people just don't like classical music at all. It's hard for me to understand, but it's true.

Maybe someday I will post some of the stories that live in my mind when I hear that music.

I look forward to that. I too was raised right, on classical, big band, and other so called "oldies". I was also raised with an open mind to listen first and then decide if I like something or not and not just judge without knowing. My dad raised me to love music and 1812 Overture is his favorite song of all time.

I don't understand: there exists people who don't like Tchaikovsky?

Certainly you're jesting, woman!

By the way, the Pioneer Valley Ballet performed all-new choreography in this year's production of The Nutcracker, and I've been dying to have someone to whom I could complain about it. The stage was far too crowded, Herr Drosslemeyer was onstage far longer than he needed to be, and, while I understand that the cast was on the whole very young, most of the dancing was awkward and off-cue.

It was all worth it for the Sugar Plum Fairy, however. She freakin' rocked!
