In this conversation between Dick Leonard and Carroll Knight, Dick remembers how dedicated
our teachers were to us all at York H.S.--- especially Mrs. Larson, who, along with
Ms. Howe, taught us all
Latin. And among other things, Dick expresses a latent interest in world
history and in classical music, but without naming any specific piece of music
as being his favorite. And so, as a trailer to their conversation, I
thought of Resphigi's'The Pines of Rome' or alternatively,
some music from the Brad Pitt motion picture, Troy--- a movie that Dick mentions in his
conversation with Carroll. But that movie is so recent (2004) that
Rhapsody.com does not yet have it. And so, in
the end, I choose this piece--- George Friderick
Handel's, 'Julius Caesar' as being representative of
Dick's interview with Carroll. Handel's 'Overture to Julius Caesar' begins
playing at about the 16-minute mark of Dick's and Carroll's conversation.
Listen for it.
