Hi everyone!

Wow, this looks and sounds like a fantastic movie! I love any movie that is in black and white and is something that I didn't live through that I would like to learn more about. Maybe I can ask my mom to buy it for me! ;) I mean, it would help me learn more about WWI! :woohoo:

Hi guys,

Just to introduce myself: I'm a long-time lurker of this forum, but am only just coming out to post now...

So, hi, I'm Heather, and I'm a student studying for my MA in Anthropology at the University of Edinburgh. And of course, I'm a Nat nut. :silly:

But... the real reason for my post: I am indeed planning to attend the Outsiders screening of War Requiem on Thursday in Liverpool (my hometown), and wondered if perhaps any of you would like to arm me with questions ready to pose during Don Boyd's Q&A. If so, let me know ahead of time and I'll try my best to ask during the session!

Heather x

By a coincidence, the library in San Francisco just e-mailed me saying "War Requiem" video is ready for me to pick up! So I'm planning to go tomorrow. I probably won't be able to watch it in time to post my questions but am looking forward to finally seeing it. I've had the CD for a long time but not the movie. I love Britten's music, and Fisher-Dieskau (the baritone) is one of my music gods.
Enjoy the screening/discussion. I'm envious that you'll get to go:cheer:

Heather, what a kind thought and suggestion! Thank-you very much: I really appreciate it. Could you please ask him whether the recording of the requiem was played for the actors as they filmed some parts of the movie (e.g., there's a scene in which Nat moves his hands... I was wondering if he did that in a silent vacuum)? That would be interesting to hear.

And Isolde, Fischer-Dieskau is one of my musical heroes, too. In fact, that's where my love of baritone voices (both singing and speaking) comes from: I've known his voice literally all my life. Actually, when I was 8, I expressed to my mother a wish to be able to sing like him "when I grow up"... My mum burst out laughing and told me, "Sorry, darling, you can't!". It was a while before I understood why. LOL.
