Re: Classical music corner

Recomposed by Max Richter - Vivaldi, The Four Seasons.

Quote:
throwing molecules of the original Vivaldi into a test tube with a bunch of other things, and waiting for an explosion"

"There are times I depart completely from the original, yes, but there are moments when it pokes through. I was pleased to discover that Vivaldi's music is very modular. It's pattern music, in a way, so there's a connection with the whole post-minimalist aesthetic I'm part of."
Wonderful stuff.

Kubelik always pulled off the most amazing conducting job..



Makes me miss my home. To sit in the hall listening to this..is a different patriotic feeling than what gets abused by your usual populists and medias. It's so positive.

Takes me back to primary school. The headmaster always used to play Voltava for Friday afternoon assembly. Calmed us down. Have never forgotten this music.

Don't know why, but I only get "Mark" explaining how a videolink should work (in principle).

Who is pianist, playing which Grieg ( I will go straight to source...and no doubt get distracted and watch 20+ other performances

A video appeared in my reply, but I felt a bit intimidated by the authoritative stare (Was that the right video? Piano concerto A minor, I think)

Did anyone see "Sale" at the Zürich Opera this winter (or year before)?

Opinions?

Re: Classical music corner

One of my current projects is arranging this piece for treble choir, in order to do it with Forum Voices (English-speaking choir made up of mainly ef members): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD3jtl80LOA

We're also doing this splendid gem, recorded by the Cornell University Chorus last year: http://www.niccoloathens.com/wp-cont...s-complete.mp3

Man, I love choral music.

Will listen to that in the evening, right now is in sharp contrast with what is playing in my mind. Thanks.

Yes it was, and the only one I found with Radu Lupu playing Grieg's Piano concerto in A minor op.16. Ha ha, sorry for the "authoritative" look, in real life he's an extremely modest guy. I just liked the way he's playing this piece and thought it would be nice to share. I too get distracted by so many links once you open the one you'd like to hear.
Btw. Didn't quite get what you meant with Clara Schumann, but that is a short piece she composed while she was very young, if I'm not mistaken.

L.E. here another link for you with the same concert (Richter is playing piano...another fabulous pianist, and the recording seems a bit better).... Your pick.

Here you have it, thought they were not on youtube.
1. Toccatina in A minor
2. Nocturne in F major
3. Mazurka in G minor
4. Ballade in D minor
5. Mazurka in G major
6. Polonaise in A minor


Bit funny....This is what you usually find. I think it is even more distracting than a stare. Sorry but I couldn't help.

Can't wait to get home and listen to that "Rach".

Re: Classical music corner

Anyone else out there in EF land who is into Spanish classical guitar?

This is one of my favorite compositions by the great Catalan guitarist and composer Francisco Tárrega, from 1892. Played by Andrés Segovia.
I love the change from the somewhat haunting intro to the melody in major...by the end of it he's taken you to a different world, then brings you back down to earth with the original theme and resolves all of the tension with just two harmonics at the end...brilliant

Re: Classical music corner

I'm about to listen to this beautiful rendition of Bach played on banjo as I lay down to sleep...I'm hoping you'll enjoy it as much as I do (and did, as I was in the audience when this was recorded and can hear myself in the background during the applause)

Re: Classical music corner

Here's a lively piece to get you going this morning - Sevilla, by Isaac Albeniz. Composed in 1886, (originally for piano), this piece is part of a series of tone poems (Suite Espanola, Opus 47) which convey the composer's musical impressions of the cities of Southern Spain.

Here it is performed by Julian Bream, with incredible mastery of tone control, dynamics, etc. He turns a wooden box with strings into a miniature orchestra...

Re: Classical music corner

This thread is really lovely I'm more of a medieval music buff myself, and have recently become obsessed with Guillaume de Machaut's early motets (French composer, 14th century). Here's a lovely example:
