Music For Your Funeral?
Q: Not that I wish any of you a speedy path to death I was wondering what music you would like to be played at your funeral. My first piece would be the Trio from Der Rosenkavalier ("Marie Theres..onwards) sung either live by the best singers in 2065, when I shall die at 101 or, alternatively, Scharwzkopf et al in Karajan's Philharmonia recording played in whatever medium will have then superceded CDs. Then the prelude to Parsifal, and probably some nice hymn to follow (as yet to be arranged or composed). To send things to a thunderous conclusion I would like to be catapulted to heaven (or Purgatory) by some Richard Strauss (or more Wagner). Naturally, I want a purely secular service (Brahms' Requiem if they have the time).
A: funeral. I Would like the requiem that my great-grand son Constantine Thomas the VI, will compose some day. If he will be as good a musician as i am, (i play radio) then the last movement of Beethovens 5th symphony will do. I would like the requiem my great-grand son Constantine Thomas the IIII,will compose some day. If he is going to be a musician like me, (i play radio) then the last movement from Beethovens' 5th symphony will do. PS. HV Karajan from the 1960s, if anything else is played, i will play dracula.
