In Conclusion

This week is finals week here on the campus of Indiana University, which means graduation is just around the corner. So, in honor of things coming to a close, we're looking at famous finales and epic endings in a show we're calling "In Conclusion."

Did you know...

  • The finale of Don Giovanni by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ends with a statue coming to life and dragging the main character down into hell!
  • "Neptune, the Mystic," the final movement of The Planets by Gustav Holst ends with a literal "fade out" from the unaccompanied women's chorus, representing the vastness of space beyond Neputne.
  • Erik Satie's piano piece Embryons Dessechées ends with a seemingly endless coda, a spoof of the never-ending works by Beethoven.
  • The song "Her Majesty" from The Beatles' album Abbey Road is a bonus track after the song "The End," originally meant to be sandwiched between the songs "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Polythene Pam" on the album.
