When rock meets classical music
On a rainy September morning Robert came to the agent to check the number of concerts his rock group
had during the month. When he came into the room, the agent was talking to a man whose elegant style
and manners gave away that he was a classical musician. The agent introduced the stranger as Kevin, an
opera singer. “We are colleagues,” Robert said. “I’m a classically trained pianist myself, but I chose to
play in a rock band.
From Kevin’s look Robert understood his words were a surprise to the opera singer. Kevin didn’t seem to
believe Robert. That’s why Robert continued, “I know most people think rock musicians never do any
classical stuff. But you can come to my concert tonight and see for yourself”, added Robert and handed
Kevin his card. Kevin seemed intrigued and accepted the card.
At 9.00 the rock club was full as usual. From his central position on the stage, Robert could clearly see
the crowd waving enthusiastically and cheering each song with their hands up. There were many of his
friends and colleagues and there was Kevin, rocking with the crowd. He was enjoying the rock concert
but didn’t seem to take it seriously.
During the break Robert came up to Kevin. “Are you still sceptical or have you changed your opinion
about rock music?” he asked. “It’s been a good concert, you know, but this rock music is not my kind of
thing”, said Kevin, “It’s not for professionals.” Feeling hurt, Robert decided to show the stereotype was
not true.
He named many world famous rock stars like Elton John or Freddie Mercury who began as classical
pianists. Bon Jovi also took lessons from professional singers. Kevin smiled but still stood his ground. He
did not believe that classical and rock music could be ranked equally. In spite of the famous names Robert
had mentioned, Kevin did not accept his point of view.
Suddenly Robert jumped on the stage and picked up his guitar. “Ladies and gentlemen, we are going to
change today’s programme. A few classical pieces will be presented to you. We’ve never done it in our
rock club but today is a special occasion. We have an opera singer with us tonight, and I’m going to show
him that Bach’s and Beethoven’s music can be as modern as Queen and Michael Jackson”.
He started playing the ‘Moonlight Sonata’ by Beethoven very softly as it had to be played in the classical
style but made the second part sound more like the blues. The crowd kept swaying silently. In the next
famous classical piece, ‘The Flight of the Bumble-Bee’, his rock band joined in and they finished
triumphantly with the crowd cheering. Kevin looked impressed.
“That was moving. Sorry, I’ve been a snob”, said Kevin. Robert realized he had won and smiled. “Why
don’t we arrange a project together to mix rock with classical music?” he suggested. “Good idea!”
exclaimed Kevin. They agreed to have an official meeting before the next concert in the club. When
Kevin left, Robert was sitting on the stage playing Mozart.

Why do a lot of letters come to the Italian city on Valentine’s Day?
Why is it important to see the right bird on Valentine’s Day?
What message can be sent with the flowers?
Why do some people give St Valentine’s presents to their pets?
What is a different way to celebrate February 14?
How did the holiday get its name?
Why did a traditional St Valentine’s box of sweets have the form of a heart?
Chocolate is the most common present on St. Valentine’s Day. The tradition goes back to the
1800s when doctors made patients eat chocolate to make them feel happier. This might also be the
reason why in the 1860s, Richard Cadbury produced his heart-shaped box of chocolates
exclusively for Valentine’s Day.
St Valentine’s Day is a perfect occasion to express your deepest feelings to the person you love.
On Valentine's Day lovers, friends and family members exchange Valentine’s Day gifts as
symbols of love. However, statistics show that nearly 9 million people prefer celebrating
Valentine’s Day with their pets and give them presents. The reason is that most pet owners
consider animals to be more grateful and loyal than humans.
Each rose sent on Valentine’s Day has some meaning. For example, a red rose means love and
respect and pink says, ‘I am having sweet thoughts about you’. Also, it is believed that one rose
stands for love at first sight, eleven flowers mean that the receiver is truly and deeply loved and a
hundred and eight roses are recommended for marriage proposals.
Some superstitions about seeing birds on Valentine’s Day are really funny. It was once believed
that if a woman saw a flying robin, she would get married to a sailor. However, if she saw a
sparrow, her future husband would be poor. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a millionaire.
There is no answer to who she would marry if she saw a pigeon, as history does not say anything
about pigeons.
Romeo and Juliet, the two characters from the play by William Shakespeare, are remembered all
over the world as an emblem of romance. The young lovers lived in Verona, Italy. Every
Valentine’s Day, this city still receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet. The fictional
character is still alive for many people who believe in romantic and immortal love.
