Freebase

  1. Solo

    In music, a solo is a piece or a section of a piece played or sung by a single performer. In practice this means a number of different things, depending on the type of music and the context. The word is also used for the act of performing a solo, and sometimes for the performer. The plural is soli or the anglicised form solos. In some context these are interchangeable, but soli tends to be restricted to classical music, and tends to refer to either the solo performers or the solo passages in a single piece: it would not often be used to refer to several pieces that happen to be for single performers. Furthermore, the word soli can be used to refer to a small number of simultaneous parts assigned to single players in an orchestral composition. In the Baroque concerto grosso, the term for such a group of soloists was concertino.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

    sō′lō, n. a musical piece performed by only one voice or instrument:—pl. Sō′lōs.—adj. Sō′lō, unconcerted.—n. Sō′lōist. [It.,—L. solus, alone.]

    I think fundamentally it's that charm. I think we forget that this is not the Han Solo from the trilogy, this is a younger Han Solo, so there's a chance for him to be a different person and to still have the same charm we all know but a new take at the character.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Llega una fase en la vida, al menos una vez en la vida, cuando uno encuentra a sí misma totalmente solo ... tan completamente solo que hay que encerrarse en uno mismo interno. No hay otra opción que soportar ese amargo sufrimiento. Cuando se supera esa abrumadora soledad, uno ya no está sola. A través de esta soledad y la búsqueda del alma, nos encontramos con que nuestro yo más íntimo es la chispa divina de la vida, el espíritu indivisible que viene del poder supremo - dios. Y después de ese momento de la autorrealización, el despertar del mundo material, nos encontramos en medio del caos de este mundo, y sin embargo totalmente perturbado por su multiplicidad, totalmente en sincronía y aceptar el mundo como es - porque nuestra alma más interna nos conocemos a nosotros mismos para ser uno con todos los seres.
