Thanks for these pieces and the discussions, gentlemen – you’re helping to keep my spirit alive. ❤️
Beauty is the medicine of the soul, don't you think?
When all is said and done, it's what we live for.

Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

[...], you might want to check out my blog "Fortress of [...]"... Not really a blog at all, but a collection of pictures, quotes, and music of a quiet beauty to help medicate the soul.  :)

Berlioz: The Damnation of Faust - Hungarian March

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ws_YvHfG1yQ

Something to put a spring in your step! Sounds like it was taken from the recording by Sir [...] Davis with the LSO.

Very nice. One of those pieces everyone's heard but no one can name.
It's also called the Rákóczi March, and it's also attributed to Liszt.
The truth is, both Berlioz and Liszt stole it from wandering gypsies.
 
Isn't it ironic? Don't ya think?  ;D

lol. Interesting. Read up on it on Wikipedia... It was also the unofficial state anthem of Hungary.

It probably sounded like this:

Peer Gynt, Act V: Peer Gynt's Homecoming: Solveig's Cradle Song

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5bS1WJCtbuc
I found the complete text of Peer Gynt online here:
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Peer_Gynt

It's an English translation. Good and bad in that, I guess.
At the very end, you'll find Solveig's Cradle Song.

If you'd prefer the Norwegian version, it's here:

Peer Gynt - In the Hall of the Mountain King

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iCsdqRxtW3U

IMHO still the best version out there. But feel free to try to change my mind!

Funny how it sounds completely different as a "National Anthem". Sounds darker, more sinister, like the entrance theme of Ming the Merciless or Vlad Dracul. Well, it's Hungary, though, isn't it?

So you want me to troll the internet for a better performance of that?   ;)

But yours does underscore the point that the music from Peer Gynt should always include the words.

And Anitra's Dance should always be danced:
