Tone Poems / My Home Overture
With Rafael Kubelik's classic performances on DG shamefully out of print, this is just about the only show in town for Dvorak's symphonic poems. Fortunately, they are very fine performances, marred only by the slightly overreverberant recording in a couple of works. Purely from the musical standpoint, Neeme Jarvi's extremely direct, exciting conducting suits these colorful and dramatic works very well. It's also great to have the last and most neglected of the five, Heroic Song, included for a change. It's no less enjoyable than the other four, and only the fact that it's not based on a folk tale has prevented it from receiving the attention it deserves. A fine set. - -David Hurwitz

THE SPINNING WHEEL (a favourite of my late mother) Mellow the moonlight to shine is beginning, Close by the window young Eileen is spinning. Bent o'er the fire her blind grandmother sitting, Is crooning and moaning and drowsily knitting. Merrily cheerily noiselessly whirring, Swings the wheel spins the wheel while the foot's stirring. Sprightly and lightly and airily ringing, Trills the sweet voice of a young maiden singing. Eileen, a chara, I hear someone tapping. 'Tis the ivy dear mother against the glass flapping. Eileen, I surely hear somebody sighing. 'Tis the sound mother dear of the autumn winds dying. What's the noise that I hear at the window I wonder? 'Tis the little birds chirping on holly bush yonder What makes you be shoving and moving your stool on? And singing all wrong the old song of the "Coolin"? There's a form at the casement, the form of her true love, And he whispers with face bent, I'm waiting for you love. Get up from the stool, through the lattice step lightly, And we'll rove in the grove while the moon's shining brightly. The maid shakes her head, on her lips lays her fingers, Steps up from the stool, longs to go and yet lingers, A frightened glance turns to her drowsy grandmother, Puts her foot on the stool spins the wheel with the other. Lazily, easily, now swings the wheel round Slowly and lowly is heard now the reel's sound Noiseless and light to the lattice above her The maid steps, then leaps to the arms of her lover. Slower and slower and slower the wheel swings Lower and lower and lower the reel rings Ere the reel and the wheel stop their ringing and moving Through the grove the young lovers by moonlight are roving.

©NicoleToczauer Song: Numb, The Airborne Toxic Event I've been in a daze It seems like days that I've been waiting For this dream to pass It goes so fast It seems nothing lasts I think I've lost something For the Teliedoscope's "time" theme. Even though the idea of time passing is depressing sometimes, that you're losing people or that times are changing-- once you get through all of that, sometimes even forcing yourself to just keep going, I think that the passage of time is a good thing. We grow, meet new people and just find out more about who we are. Maybe even use that to help other people. Anyway, I love the song I put for this photo. It's my latest song obsession. This is another shot of Melissa. And let's add some symbolism to the photo, shall we? The pigeons would either be thoughts or people/places/experiences. I wanted it to be a very reflective photo, with a bittersweet but ultimately hopeful feel. Deep, I know. Haha. :)

Sleeping Beauty (Two-Disc Platinum Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live) [Blu-ray]
Awaken your senses to the majesty of SLEEPING BEAUTY Walt Disney's ultimate fairy tale. See more than you've ever seen before through the magic of state of the art technology and experience this groundbreaking film restored beyond its original brilliance in the way Walt envisioned it pristine beautiful utterly breathtaking. From the grand celebration of Princess Aurora's birth to the fateful day when she pricks her finger on a spinning wheel and falls under Malificent's evil curse to Prince Philip's courageous battle against a fire-breathing dragon the stunning artistry and spine-tingling sounds will transform your home into a fantastic world. The adventures continue as you are immersed into a wonderful world of bonus features.

In the original story, Princess Aurora sleeps for 100 years before being awakened by a prince's kiss. In the Disney version, Prince Philip comes to her rescue much sooner.
George Brun's orchestral score, which was nominated for an Academy Award, expertly blended famous themes from Tchaikovsky's ballet.
With a budget that exceeded $6 million in 1959, this was Walt Disney's most lavish and expensive animated feature to date.
Determined to make the characters as realistic as possible, Disney had a live action film shot with actors posing as Sleeping Beauty, the Prince, and Maleficent, for the animators to use.
New York Times critic Bosley Crowther called the fight between Prince Philip and Maleficent the noisiest and scariest go-round he (Disney) has ever put into one of his films.

Disney's 1959 animated effort was the studio's most ambitious to date, a widescreen spectacle boasting a gorgeous waltz-filled score adapting Tchaikovsky. In the 14th century, the malevolent Maleficent (not dissimilar to the wicked Queen in Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs taunts a king that his infant Aurora will fatally prick her finger on a spinning wheel before sundown on her 16th birthday. This, of course, would deny her a happily-ever-after with her true love. Things almost but not quite turn out that way, thanks to the assistance of some bubbly, bumbling fairies named Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. It's not really all that much about the title character--how interesting can someone in the middle of a long nap be, anyway? Instead, those fairies carry the day, as well as, of course, good Prince Phillip, whose battle with the malevolent Maleficent in the guise of a dragon has been co-opted by any number of animated films since. See it in its original glory here. And Malificent's castle, filled with warthogs and demonic imps in a macabre dance celebrating their evil ways, manages a certain creepy grandeur. --David Kronke
On the Blu-ray
Sleeping Beauty was the last and most lavish of Walt Disney's animated fairy tales. He told the artists not to hurry and to give him "a moving illustration": The film required almost four and one-half years and one million finished drawings. Instead of the 19th century storybook illustrations that had influenced the look of Snow White and Pinocchio, the artists adapted the flattened perspective and jewel-like colors of 15th century French illuminated manuscripts. The results remain unmatched for sheer visual opulence. However, Sleeping Beauty suffers from a weak story: the vision of an ageless princess slumbering in a vine-shrouded tower was replaced with elements of Snow White and a boy-meets-girl musical. The evil Maleficent and the three Good Fairies (Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather) dominate the film, rather than Princess Aurora and Prince Philip. Sleeping Beauty was originally released in 70mm, and the Blu-ray edition restores the film to its original splendor. (Many earlier releases trimmed the wide-screen images and/or muted the glowing palatte.) The Bonus DVD looks good on a flat screen monitor, but it pales in comparison to the richness of the Blu-ray. In addition to the commentaries and a making-of documentary, the set includes myriad extras that vary widely in quality. Nostalgia buffs will enjoy the recreation of the old Sleeping Beauty's Castle attraction in Disneyland, and the TV program "Four Artists Paint One Tree" provides a welcome showcase for key talents from the film. But the CG animation of the dragon and the voice imitations of the Good Fairies fail to capture the magic of the originals in the "Dragon Encounter"; the "Maleficent's Challenge Game"--a hi-tech Twenty Questions--sounds only vaguely like the redoubtable sorceress. The BD-Live features require an awful lot of bother: after wading through (or ignoring) 130 screens of legalese, participants must enter their Social Security number or other personal information in the drawn-out sign-on process. Once that's finally done, viewers can send special messages to pop up during the film, chat online with others who are watching, and view it in synch with others. The question is whether or not you want to. (Rated G: violence) --Charles Solomon
