我是含淚看完演奏的. 不知是受小女孩的天份感動, 還是安息曲本身就是容易惹人傷感, 還是我真的是年紀大了?
First, read the following, and then click on the web site.
The conductor of the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland .
The young lady, her trumpet and her rendition of TAPS makes
your hair stand on end.
Many of you may never have heard taps played in its entirety,
for all of the men and women that have died for you to have the
freedom you have in America . This is an opportunity you won't
want to miss and I guarantee you'll never forget.
Amazingly beautiful ..
Melissa Venema, age 13, is the trumpet soloist.
She is also from Holland .
Here is Taps played in its entirety. The original version of Taps
was called Last Post, and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801.
It was rather lengthy and formal, as you will hear in this clip, so in
1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps.
Melissa Venema is playing it on a trumpet whereby the original
was played on a bugle.
