While often referred to as the Liebestod (‘Love-Death’, so named by the composer Franz Liszt), this climax was referred to by Wagner himself as Verklärung (‘Transfiguration’). The composer Gerard McBurney refers to the final scene of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde as a synesthetic experience on a grand scale. Tristan’s blood flows from his body and the smell of the blood becomes floral to Isolde.

Hits by The Beach Boys, Mariah Carey, Otis Redding, Eva Cassidy, Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Phil Collins and many others are woven together by a beguilingly memorable original soundtrack composed by Craig Armstrong for this 2003 modern classic. An uncomfortable truth for the creators of movies is that the score is important not just to support the action within the film itself, but thereafter as a recognition trigger. Hate Racism was set up in 2002 in response to rising levels of racism and electoral successes for the British National Party . LMHR celebrates the energy and vibrancy of the music scene to promote unity and celebrate diversity through education and events.

The late-12th century poem, Tristan und Iseult, by the Alsatian Gottfried von Strassburg, is a chivalric romance; it became the basis of Richard Wagner’s 1850s music drama, Tristan und Isolde. The opening musical phrase of Wagner’s opera has become a staple element in the discussion of 19th-century music. The three notes that precede it form the ‘Grief-motif’, and the Tristan chord begins the ‘Longing-motif’. Tristan, a Cornish knight, travels to Ireland to escort Princess Isolde to Cornwall so that she may marry Tristan’s uncle, King Mark. On the journey to England, Tristan and Isolde drink a love-potion (thinking it the elixir of death – Tristan had killed Isolde’s previous fiancé and wishes to atone, whereas Isolde simply wishes to end her miserable existence). The pair’s adulterous relationship ensues, and Tristan is mortally wounded by one of King Mark’s soldiers.

The method of RAR was to bring together young black and white people at events by offering an eclectic mix of punk and reggae on show line-ups. Today it is easy to take for granted the plethora of cultural influences that a musician will draw on as they develop their unique style of music. Yet, in the mid-1970s, RAR’s approach was truly ground-breaking and became a considerable influence on SKA and 2Tone genres that were emerging at the time.

Of all Shakespeare’s plays, Romeo & Juliet – a story of star-crossed lovers – is the one that has inspired more love-inspired music than any other. Similarly ending with the death of both of the lovers, the symbolist play Pelléas et Mélisande of the early-1890s by the Belgian author Maurice Maeterlinck quickly became the basis for a number of musical settings composed over the next decade and a half. First was Gabriel Fauré’s incidental music for an 1898 English language production of the play in London.

Playing the guitar requires a blend of intuition, intellect, and emotion, and the path to excellence can be a confusing one.
