Unsorted text[edit]

Is the word Nibelunglied also derived from the word lied? Gokul

Yup, Nibelungenlied just means "Nibelung song" (or "song of the Nibelungs" I guess). Adam Bishop 16:19, 20 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Wrong: They distinguished between "Lied" as a piece of music, sung, and "Lied" as part of literature (see Lied in German Wikipedia). The Niebelungenlied is part of German literature. (There is no such song. See Epic_poetry) Habibie 00:14, 25 February 2007 (UTC)
I'd say that as a translation "Song of the Nibelungs" works for most purposes. It is foremost a very long poem but it is unknown if it was a ever sung in a strict sense of singing (or having a melody belonging to it). But if you count "reciting a poem" as singing then you get the sense of song / lied in this case. (talk) 03:49, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

hiya. i am doing my homework, and i was just wondering if you could explain what 'concertos virtuosos' means, and also the briefest way to describe a concerto. thanx

I don't think "concertos virtuosos" means anything, really, though a "virtuoso concerto" would be a concerto for a virtuoso (two articles you might want to check out). In general, a concerto is a piece for solo instrument and orchestra (though less often it can be for two or more solo instruments and orchestra), unless it's a concerto grosso. By the way, if you have any questions like this in future, a better place to ask is at the Wikipedia:Reference desk. --Camembert

If anyone here can read hebrew there is a much larger here piece at the Hebrew Wikipedia. 14:30, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Elfen Lied[edit]

The mention of this manga/anime in the opening paragraph smacks of 'in popular culture'; I have removed it. As a matter of elucidating the meaning of its title, the article for Elfen Lied contains a link to this article; there is no such benefit in the reciprocal link. --Macabre Deified (talk) 23:04, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

Quite. The only thing that surprises me is that you feel the need to explain yourself in this detail. --Peter cohen (talk) 09:40, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Certainly no less explicable than your need to share that insight. --Macabre Deified (talk) 01:21, 20 November 2008 (UTC)


In the last sentence, I tried to make a correction: "lied" found its true sense in the Romantic era, and it is generally associated therewith. However, the genre is not of Romantic era. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Akdoganerkan (talkcontribs) 14:13, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
