It is hard to do justice to this music with the correct number of stringed instruments, yet one instrument with so many strings, beautiful

Benjamin Britten, Nocturnal for John Dowland, Op. 70 pt.8 (Passacaglia)

Composed for and played by Julian Bream. Based on the song 'Come ye Heavy States of Night' by John Dowland, 1597.

Dark, atonal, surreal:

I am going to sing this. Dvořák was a king.

Lately - I have been into Barber.

Re: Classical music corner

The music one can "forget" to play because it is so powerful (not necessarily for everyone but very personal). Adding Barber's Adagio for Strings to my playlist (would be even better to play it - Adagio for one violin?)

Re: Classical music corner

This thread is fun. I'm glad it has been revived.
Two suggestions from me.
Mahler 3 performed (in Lucerne) by Claudio Abbado and the Lucerne Festival Orchestra
The whole thing is great but my favourite part is the Misterioso (at 1:00:00) performed magnificently by Anna Larsson
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Yr720ftjaA
Secondly Peter Warlock's Capriol Suite. An energetic performance from the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdibDKnp7Mc
In both cases the videos are almost as good as the music.
PS Don't know why I can't get my youtube links to show properly.

Re: Classical music corner

Phillip Glass' (ex of Japan) Violin Concerto. Love it. There's something so wonderfully haunting about the repetition both below the melody and in the melody itself. This isn't the best quality recording I've ever heard but it's pretty good...

I can see how that wouldn't perhaps work so well. Well done for mastering it though! I wish I'd learned guitar as a kid. I never could get my hand comfortably around the neck. Odd, as I never had trouble with the cello.

Re: Classical music corner

well, I prefer yo yo ma's version, but still sounds good on guitar:



I can't play it this cleanly, however - my stubby fingers, lol? It's a good study, in any case

Re: Classical music corner

Oh, how beautiful. Thank you for that. It sounds somehow Medieval, like it would work on a lute. And it also sounds vaguely Mark Knopfer-ish. Or rather he now sounds vaguely Bach-ish. I'm now suspecting he had some Bach influence in his Princess Bride instrumentals...


Thank you Pilatus.


And shorter fingers and music playing get a bad press, but my piano teacher said they were often better than the longer ones - stronger or something!

Incidentally, I walked down the aisle to this (well, at the 1.14 mark)

I wouldn't dream of doing such a thing.


Yep. Stubby fingers. No good. You should switch to the... triangle, or similar...





One of my very good friends is a professional musician - Double Bass and guitar. He generally works for one of the West End shows (and tours) in the orchestra pit but he also plays the most sublime Classical and Spanish guitar... He has VERY long fingers, is what I'm getting at.

Gorgeous. Had never heard this. I can't seem to thank you via the buttons. So, thank you.
