  • Great Composers - Antonin Dvorak

    15:02

    Antonin Dvorak, generally known as the greatest Czech composer ever to have lived. In this video I have included excerpts from some of Dvorak's greatest masterpieces. Time limit restrictions on youtube have restricted me from included more pieces, like music from his operas, but I have tried to include as many pieces as possible! I really love Dvorak's music and would be very interested to hear your opinion of the pieces in this video, so please do leave comments.

    Please do stay and watch the whole video, as many of my absolute favourite pieces by Dvorak are at the end, including the serenades, 8th symphony and the amazing tone poem The Noon Witch.

    Vítězslav Novák a trouvé des sources d'inspiration substantielles dans la nature et le folklore ; à cet égard, des parallèles peuvent être établis entre son œuvre et celle de Leoš Janáček, malgré la préséance de ce dernier sur les générations précédentes.

    L'affinité de Novák pour les airs folkloriques résulte dans une certaine mesure de l'influence de son professeur au conservatoire de Prague, Antonín Dvořák bien que l'intérêt pour le monde en voie de disparition de la culture rurale ait été un phénomène largement répandu au tournant du siècle en Bohême et en Moravie.

    Au cours de ses voyages de vacances, le jeune Novák a découvert les charmes de la Moravie, en particulier ceux de la campagne et des habitants de la Valachie (la partie centre-est). Slovácko (le sud-est, localement connu sous le nom de Slovaquie morave), et la région frontalière Moravie-Slovaquie. Il s'est vite trouvé plongé dans la collecte de chansons folkloriques à leur source, se liant ainsi d'amitié avec les chanteurs et musiciens locaux, ainsi qu'avec de nombreux artistes moraves natifs, liés par une connaissance empirique bien fondée de la musique folklorique.

    Dans la période précédant la Première Guerre mondiale, la façon dont Novák a exploité les forces inspiratrices du folklore et de la nature dans sa propre oeuvre, a eu un effet significatif sur un certain nombre d'autres compositeurs tchèques ; cela était dû principalement à la capacité de Novák de combiner son inspiration rurale avec les postulats de l'art moderne, réalisant une admirable intégration du folklore avec les formes assimilées de l'impressionnisme, du symbolisme et de l'art nouveau. Ce n'est que plus tard que l'influence de Novák sur la musique tchèque a fait place à celle de Janáček.

  • The Paganini Project with Peter Sheppard Skærved

    1:13

    Polymathic and ever-curious British violinist Peter Sheppard Skærved delves into the Library's fascinating Niccolò Paganini collection. Examining posters, playbills, letters, manuscripts and memorabilia collected by Paganini himself, he reveals how the virtuoso created his own mystique as a violinist and musical innovator. From his Secret Red Book containing recipes, prescriptions, tour dates, a laundry list and financial notes, to clues about the virtuoso's alleged use of a steel bow, our Paganini Project deciphers some of the myths and mysteries surrounding the 19th-century icon. The Paganini Project will be featured in a lecture/demonstration on Sat. Dec. 15, 2012, at 2 p.m., in the Library's Coolidge Auditorium.

    Speaker Biography: Peter Sheppard Skærved is an award-winning and Grammy-nominated British violinist. He is the dedicatee of over two hundred works for solo violin, by composers such as George Rochberg, Judith Weir and Hans Werner Henze. He is the only British violinist to have been invited to play Paganini's violin il Cannone more than once (five times in total). He has performed at the Library of Congress' Coolidge Auditorium and is the Viotti Lecturer in Performance Studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

  • Alexina Louie ~ Distant Memories

    3:12

    This meditative piece was the first contemporary piece I've ever played, and I think it turned out quite nicely. Distant Memories is the third piece from Alexina Louie's Music For Piano.

    At first, I wasn't a huge fan of contemporary piano music on account of it usually being really conseptual and not a lot of fun to listen to. Musicians argue the genera is more for the performer then the listener, but that kinda defeats the purpose of music!

    Fortunately, there are composers like Alexina Louie who write music that is not only fun to play, but really cool to listen to, so there's my rant :/

    If you like this piece you should probably check out some of her other pieces from Music For Piano like Enchanted Bells, Changes, or Once Upon a Time.

    Also, it should be a given but this beautiful piece belongs to Alexina Louie, she gets all the credit for writing it.

  • Various Composers Borderlands 2 OST / UST

    31:08

    Miss Moxxi wishes you all a Happy Loverpalooza, while I issue you medley of all of my favourite soundtracks from Borderlands 2. We're all winners! Anywho, I hope you're having a pleasant Valentine's Day even if you have been reduced to stalking your desired other half, or have trapped them in a stationary cupboard. Even if you haven't you shouldn't miss out! The Borderlands characters have shared some of these delightful love poems with you below:


    * * *

    This is a soundtrack medley for the second game in the Borderlands franchise, just combining some of my all time favourite tracks from the game. I only started playing the game because I already knew of the voice actors from their other work, and the cel-shaded artstyle really drew me in. After playing, I'm willing to say that Borderlands 2 was my bae, Gaige was very very fun to play and had some abilities with names that pleased me...
    I will probably at a later date do a much larger medley for all the games from the franchise, but for now we shall stick with this. There were quite a few composers for this game, and they'll all be linked at the bottom of the description as ever. They all did a wonderful job with the musical score and it's certainly one of the highlights of the game, particularly the combat music. Not all of the music here was officially released hence UST in the title. Below will be the playlists of music I cherrypicked from to make this.



    There are plenty of videos on my channel for you to check out on your own accord, but I'm going to recommend that you listen to a friend's video; it was part of a collab with myself, a mirror medley for Fallout: New Vegas. SkyFire's medleys are always top notch, better than mine anyways. Follow this link to reach it, if you'd like.


    My medley for Remember Me wasn't all too great but it probably is the closest to this you'll find from me. If you decide to listen to this, may I remind you it was from a dark plain of reality... it's definitely not as good as this.

  • Corelli: Sinfonia

    8:25

    Arcangelo Corelli (17 February 1653 -- 8 January 1713) was an Italian violinist and composer of the Baroque era. Corelli was born on 17th February 1653 in the small Romagna town of Fusignano, then in the diocese of Ferrara. His family were land-owners who had lived in Fusignano since 1506 (a Corelli moved to the area from Rome in the fifteenth century); although apparently prosperous, they were certainly not of the nobility, as several fanciful accounts of the composer's genealogy subsequently claimed. The wealth of anecdotes and legends attached to Corelli contrasts with the relative paucity of truly reliable contemporary evidence documenting events in his life. This gap is especially pronounced for his formative years, including his musical education, even though traditional accounts of a highly idealized childhood have long been debunked. Chronicles of the Accademia Filarmonica of Bologna indicate that Corelli was accepted as a member by 1670, at the exceptionally young age of seventeen. The style of execution introduced by Corelli and preserved by his pupils, such as Francesco Geminiani, Pietro Locatelli, and many others, was of vital importance for the development of violin playing. It has been said that the paths of all of the famous violinist-composers of 18th-century Italy led to Arcangelo Corelli who was their iconic point of reference. His concerti grossi have often been popular in Western culture...

  • J. N. Hummel - Rondo C dur

    3:07

    Školský koncert ZUŠ Jána Albrechta, 28.10. 2015
    piano - Lívia Čerešňová

    Johann Nepomuk Hummel (14 November 1778 – 17 October 1837) was an Austrian composer and virtuoso pianist. His music reflects the transition from the Classical to the Romantic musical era.
    Hummel was born in Pressburg, Kingdom of Hungary, then a part of the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy (now Bratislava in Slovakia). He was named after St John of Nepomuk, and – unusually for that period – an only child. [...]
    Like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Hummel was a child prodigy. At the age of eight, he was offered music lessons by Mozart, who was impressed with his ability. Hummel was taught and housed by Mozart for two years free of charge and made his first concert appearance at the age of nine at one of Mozart's concerts. [...]
    In 1804, Hummel became Konzertmeister to Prince Esterházy's establishment at Eisenstadt. Although he had taken over many of the duties of Kapellmeister because Haydn's health did not permit him to perform them himself, he continued to be known simply as the Concertmeister out of respect to Haydn, receiving the title of Kapellmeister, or music director, to the Eisenstadt court only after the older composer died in May 1809. He remained in the service of Prince Esterházy for seven years altogether before being dismissed in May 1811 for neglecting his duties.[3] He then returned to Vienna where, after spending two years composing, he married the opera singer Elisabeth Röckel in 1813. The following year, at her request, was spent touring Russia and the rest of Europe. The couple had two sons.[4] One of them, Carl (1821–1907), became a well-known landscape painter. [...]
    At the end of his life, Hummel saw the rise of a new school of young composers and virtuosi, and found his own music slowly going out of fashion. His disciplined and clean Clementi-style technique, and his balanced classicism, opposed him to the rising school of tempestuous bravura displayed by the likes of Liszt. Composing less and less, but still highly respected and admired, Hummel died peacefully in Weimar in 1837. A freemason (like Mozart), Hummel bequeathed a considerable portion of his famous garden behind his Weimar residence to his masonic lodge. His grave is in the Historical Cemetery, Weimar.
    Although Hummel died famous, with a lasting posthumous reputation apparently secure, he and his music were quickly forgotten at the onrush of the Romantic period, perhaps because his classical ideas were seen as old-fashioned. Later, during the classical revival of the early 20th century, Hummel was passed over. Like Haydn (for whom a revival had to wait until the second half of the 20th century), Hummel was overshadowed by Mozart. Due to a rising number of available recordings and an increasing number of live concerts across the world, his music is now becoming reestablished in the classical repertoire.

  • Juraj Beneš - Chanson triste

    21:25

    Chanson triste (1996) for violin,clarinet, cello and piano

    I wrote the piece for my friends, friends in life and struggle (for contemporary music). I should have entitled it Chanson d'amour instead. Life is to blame for choosing Chanson triste as the title (a year ago, the luggage of several members went missing on a trip to a training course in Banff, Canada, and it was found only after their return home, so it would be appropriate to say: adieu mes valises, adieu ma malle, ma malle perdue, mes valises perdues, adieu, les adieux...) Thus, various rhetorical figures, like that of Beethoven's sonata of the same tide, or an opposite one from an opera by Wagner, form the most important material in the composition - that's the lost and found luggage from the sad story in brackets - to uphold not only fife, but struggle as well (e.g. struggle for the reintroduction of shape in contemporary music -ugh!)...
    This composition was premiered on the Melos-Ethos International Festival 1997 by the excellent slovak chamber ensemble Opera aperta. This Chanson triste ( or, as the composer sayd, also Chanson d´amour) is dedicated composers pupils and friends, the members of Opera aperta:
    Ivana Pristašová, violin
    Jozef Lupták, cello
    Nora Škuta, piano
    Ronald Šebesta, clarinet.

    The ensemble OPERA APERTA was founded in 1996 by several members of the contemporary music group VENI ensemble as a chamber group specializing on the classical, romantic and 20-th century repertoire. Foreseen is an instrument combination of a string quartet, piano, flute and clarinet. This enables the ensemble to achieve its goal: to shape each programme according to differently chosen associations or contrasts, unifying the works on the list. It is a long-term project, resulting in a creative comprehension of the European musical heritage, as seen from the end of the 20th century. It's a search with an open end, an open work.

  • Theme arranged by Jan Boland from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak

    1:14

    In 2004 Red Cedar Chamber Music commissioned fifteen composers with strong Iowa ties to participate in a group commission project designed to celebrate the centennial of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904). The result was Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak, which was premiered in October 2004 at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This was followed by October performances in the Czech Republic including a concert on the grand staircase of the National Museum in Prague.

    Flutist Jan Boland arranged the opening theme from the Scherzo, the third movement of Dvorak's American Quartet, for flute, viola & guitar. Each composer provided a one-minute variation on this theme. Dvorak wrote and premiered the American Quartet while living in Spillville, Iowa for three-months in 1893. The theme from the Scherzo is inspired by the call of the Scarlet Tanager, a native bird Dvorak heard as he walked along the Turkey River in Spillville.

    The variations were completed over a period of 15 months. The composers were selected for the quality of their compositions and for the diversity of their style and backgrounds. Although all composers have strong Iowa connections, they were living in California, Michigan, Vermont, and Oregon as well as in Iowa -- some are primarily professional composers, but others are jazz musicians, doublers, film score arrangers, orchestra conductors, and college professors.

    In 2009 two additional variations were added by Andrew Earle Simpson and Joshua Reznicow.

    The original set of 15 Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak completed in 2004 appears on Red Cedar Chamber Music's 2005 Czech-Inspired compact disc, Fleur de Son Classics 57974.

    The idea for this group commission came from several sources. Flutist Jan Boland had recently become intrigued by, and subsequently performed, a work by Anton Richa, 18 Variations and a Fantasie Op. 51, which consisted of eighteen one-minute variations on a theme by Mozart. Another inspiration was a book project led by Greg Shanley of KUNI-FM radio; he hired a series of Iowa authors to create an Iowa mystery book by passing the book from author to author. And finally, the most important inspiration came from the beautiful music by Antonin Dvorak himself.

    List of variations from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak (2004-2009) performed on October 7, 2012 and posted to YouTube.

    Martinů was a Czech composer of modern classical music. He wrote 6 symphonies, 15 operas, 14 ballet scores and a large body of orchestral, chamber, vocal and instrumental works. Martinů became a violinist in the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, and taught music in his home town. In 1923 Martinů left Czechoslovakia for Paris, and deliberately withdrew from the Romantic style in which he had been trained. In the 1930s he experimented with expressionism and constructivism, and became an admirer of current European technical developments, exemplified by his orchestral works Half-time and La Bagarre. He also adopted jazz idioms, for instance in his Kuchyňské revue (Kitchen Revue).


    Paul Gulda (* 1961 in Vienna) is the second son of Friedrich Gulda, who was one of his piano teachers.

    Heinrich Schiff (born 18 November 1951) is an Austrian cellist and conductor. He studied cello with Tobias Kühne and André Navarra and made his solo debut in Vienna and London in 1971. He studied conducting with Hans Swarovsky and made his conducting debut in 1986.
    Schiff was Artistic Director of the Northern Sinfonia from 1990 to 1996, and recorded with them for the NMC label. He also held chief conductorships with the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra in Copenhagen, Denmark (1996–2000), and the Orchester Musikkollegium Winterthur.
    In 2004, he was appointed Chief Conductor of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and served in the post from 2005 to 2008. He stood down from the post in 2008 for health reasons.
    Schiff plays the Mara Stradivarius (1711) and Sleeping Beauty made by Montagnana in Venice in 1739. His recording of the Bach Cello Suites won prizes, and his recording of the Shostakovich concertos won the Grand Prix du Disque. His recording of the Brahms Double Concerto with Frank Peter Zimmermann and Wolfgang Sawallisch won the Deutscher Schallplattenpreis. Composers who have written cello concertos for Schiff include John Casken and Friedrich Cerha. Among his students are Rudi Spring, Gautier Capuçon, Richard Harwood and Natalie Clein.

    Robert Black, conductor

    Walter Ross, whose works have been performed in over 40 countries, is perhaps best known for his compositions featuring brass and woodwinds. Raised in Nebraska, he became a professional orchestral French horn player by the age of seventeen and went on to gain more performance experience in college as a member of the University of Nebraska symphonic band, and as a flute player with a baroque ensemble. Currently he plays bass in the Blue Ridge Chamber Orchestra. After four years of engineering and astronomy, he switched to music, receiving much of his early compositional training under Robert Beadell. While working on his doctoral degree at Cornell (where he studied under Robert Palmer and Karel Husa), he received an Organization of American States Fellowship to study composition privately under Alberto Ginastera in Argentina.
    The influences of his own extensive performance background and his musical training under composers who stressed bright orchestration and rhythmic excitement can be heard in many of Ross' over one hundred works. He likes to write music that musicians enjoy performing and audiences enjoy hearing. Many of his recent works are representative of his current interest in neo-modal, pandiatonic composition.
    Ross has already written a number of major orchestral concertos including ones for oboe and harp, bassoon, clarinet, piano, flute and guitar, trombone, tuba, double bass, and violin. He is currently writing a Concerto for 'Cello and Orchestra. He prefers the concerto form to that of the symphony because of its more varied possibilities for artistic expression in contrasting the solo against the orchestra.

  • Untitled Variation by Michael Gilbertson from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak

    1:25

    In 2004 Red Cedar Chamber Music commissioned fifteen composers with strong Iowa ties to participate in a group commission project designed to celebrate the centennial of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904). The result was Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak, which was premiered in October 2004 at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This was followed by October performances in the Czech Republic including a concert on the grand staircase of the National Museum in Prague.

    Flutist Jan Boland arranged the opening theme from the Scherzo, the third movement of Dvorak's American Quartet, for flute, viola & guitar. Each composer provided a one-minute variation on this theme. Dvorak wrote and premiered the American Quartet while living in Spillville, Iowa for three-months in 1893. The theme from the Scherzo is inspired by the call of the Scarlet Tanager, a native bird Dvorak heard as he walked along the Turkey River in Spillville.

    The variations were completed over a period of 15 months. The composers were selected for the quality of their compositions and for the diversity of their style and backgrounds. Although all composers have strong Iowa connections, they were living in California, Michigan, Vermont, and Oregon as well as in Iowa -- some are primarily professional composers, but others are jazz musicians, doublers, film score arrangers, orchestra conductors, and college professors.

    In 2009 two additional variations were added by Andrew Earle Simpson and Joshua Reznicow.

    The original set of 15 Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak completed in 2004 appears on Red Cedar Chamber Music's 2005 Czech-Inspired compact disc, Fleur de Son Classics 57974.

  • Johann Ludwig Krebs: Guitar Concerto in G major, Jozef Zsapka

    15:57

    “Johann Ludwig Krebs (1713-1780) was a german composer whose career spanned the end of the Baroque and beginning of the Classical era. He was the son of Johann Tobias Krebs, the organist of Buttelstedt, near Weimar, who had studied with J.S. Bach. Father taught son organ, harmony, theory, and counterpoint. The lad was sent to enter the Thomasschule in Leipzig, where J.S. Bach was music director.
    J.L. Krebs had a very high reputation among his contemporaries. J.S. Bach held him in high regard, punning on both their names (Krebs [crab or crayfish] and Bach [brook or stream]) by saying He is the only crayfish in my stream. It is not surprising that many of his works, especially his organ compositions, are very much like those of J.S. Bach. “ (from “Bach Cantata Website, Biographies of Poets & Composers”)

    César Cui, in full César Antonovich Cui, (born Jan. 6 1835, Vilna [now Vilnius], Lithuania, Russian Empire—died March 24, 1918, Petrograd [St. Petersburg], Russia), Russian composer of operas, songs, and piano music. He was a music critic and military engineer who, with Aleksandr Borodin, Mily Balakirev, Modest Mussorgsky, and Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov, made up the group known as The Five.

    Cui was the son of a French officer, taken prisoner during Napoleon’s campaign of 1812, who remained in Russia after the war; his mother was Lithuanian. Cui began to compose while he was still a boy, imitating the style of Frédéric Chopin, and received lessons in composition. But in 1851 he was sent to St. Petersburg, where he entered the school of engineering and, in 1855, the academy of military engineering, becoming a lecturer there in 1857. In 1878 he became a professor of fortification—his pupils included General M.D. Skobelev, a hero of the Russo-Turkish war, and Tsar Nicholas II—and he retired with the rank of lieutenant general.

    Cui’s friendship with Balakirev and another nationalist composer, Aleksandr Dargomyzhsky, developed his musical interests: he began to compose copiously and, although he had no Russian ancestry, became a pugnacious journalistic champion of Russian nationalism. From 1864 to 1877 he was music critic for the St. Peterburgskiye vedomosti (“St. Petersburg News”), and later he became a successful propagandist of Russian music in Belgium and France, notably with his La Musique en Russie (1881). Cui’s own music has little Russian flavour, and of his 10 operas only the first, The Prisoner of the Caucasus (begun 1857, produced 1883); the last, The Captain’s Daughter (performed 1911, St. Petersburg); and the one-act Feast in the Time of the Plague (performed 1901, Moscow) are on Russian subjects, taken from Aleksandr Pushkin’s writings. He turned more readily to French sources—Victor Hugo, Jean Richepin, Alexandre Dumas père, Guy de Maupassant, and Prosper Mérimée—and his only moderately successful operas are based on Heinrich Heine’s William Ratcliff (performed 1869, St. Petersburg) and Maupassant’s Mademoiselle Fifi (performed 1903, Moscow). Cui is at his best in the miniature forms, notably his short piano compositions and his songs.

  • Mozart: Overture - Don Giovanni

    6:06

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (German: [ˈvɔlfɡaŋ amaˈdeus ˈmoːtsaʁt], English see fn.), name Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart (27 January 1756 -- 5 December 1791), was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg, but grew restless and travelled in search of a better position, always composing abundantly. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death. The circumstances of his early death have been much mythologized. He was survived by his wife Constanze and two sons. Mozart learned voraciously from others, and developed a brilliance and maturity of style that encompassed the light and graceful along with the dark and passionate. He composed over 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and his influence on subsequent Western art music is profound; Beethoven composed his own early works in the shadow of Mozart, and Joseph Haydn wrote that posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years...

    Don Giovanni (K. 527; complete title: Il dissoluto punito, ossia il Don Giovanni, literally The Rake Punished, or Don Giovanni) is an opera in two acts with music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte. It is based on the legends of Don Juan, a fictional libertine and seducer. It was premiered by the Prague Italian opera at the Teatro di Praga (now called the Estates Theatre) on October 29, 1787. Da Ponte's libretto was billed like many of its time as dramma giocoso, a term that denotes a mixing of serious and comic action. Mozart entered the work into his catalogue as an opera buffa. Although sometimes classified as comic, it blends comedy, melodrama and supernatural elements. A staple of the standard operatic repertoire, Don Giovanni is currently tenth on the Operabase list of the most-performed operas worldwide. It has also proved a fruitful subject for writers and philosophers...

  • A NICE ANTIQUE AUSTRIAN VIOLIN, Tchaikovsky Concerto, 2nd Mov.

    3:36

  • Joyful Steady Groove by Andrew Earle Simpson from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak

    1:31

    In 2004 Red Cedar Chamber Music commissioned fifteen composers with strong Iowa ties to participate in a group commission project designed to celebrate the centennial of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904). The result was Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak, which was premiered in October 2004 at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This was followed by October performances in the Czech Republic including a concert on the grand staircase of the National Museum in Prague.

    Flutist Jan Boland arranged the opening theme from the Scherzo, the third movement of Dvorak's American Quartet, for flute, viola & guitar. Each composer provided a one-minute variation on this theme. Dvorak wrote and premiered the American Quartet while living in Spillville, Iowa for three-months in 1893. The theme from the Scherzo is inspired by the call of the Scarlet Tanager, a native bird Dvorak heard as he walked along the Turkey River in Spillville.

    The variations were completed over a period of 15 months. The composers were selected for the quality of their compositions and for the diversity of their style and backgrounds. Although all composers have strong Iowa connections, they were living in California, Michigan, Vermont, and Oregon as well as in Iowa -- some are primarily professional composers, but others are jazz musicians, doublers, film score arrangers, orchestra conductors, and college professors.

    In 2009 two additional variations were added by Andrew Earle Simpson and Joshua Reznicow.

    The original set of 15 Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak completed in 2004 appears on Red Cedar Chamber Music's 2005 Czech-Inspired compact disc, Fleur de Son Classics 57974.

    The idea for this group commission came from several sources. Flutist Jan Boland had recently become intrigued by, and subsequently performed, a work by Anton Richa, 18 Variations and a Fantasie Op. 51, which consisted of eighteen one-minute variations on a theme by Mozart. Another inspiration was a book project led by Greg Shanley of KUNI-FM radio; he hired a series of Iowa authors to create an Iowa mystery book by passing the book from author to author. And finally, the most important inspiration came from the beautiful music by Antonin Dvorak himself.

    List of variations from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak (2004-2009) performed on October 7, 2012 and posted to YouTube.

    Dans la musique des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles et des siècles précédents, on peut trouver des idées thématiques et des progressions harmoniques qui flottent librement d'un compositeur à l'autre ; parfois, des mouvements entiers ou même des compositions entières ont été adaptés et retravaillés ; et, certainement et le plus souvent, les compositeurs ont remodelé leurs propres matériaux pour les adapter à de nouvelles formes ou remplir de nouvelles fonctions. La majorité des concertos pour clavier de bach tombent dans cette dernière catégorie en tant que réécritures de concertos déjà existants, surtout pour le violon (cliquez sur le i en haut de la fenêtre pour les entendre).

    C'est là une des raisons principales de la domination du clavier sur les œuvres, car la partie précédemment attribuée au violon solo est maintenant confiée à la main droite du claviériste, et la main gauche, comme s'il s'agissait d'un autre instrument, joue une partie de basse. En fait, l'utilisation par Bach du matériel musical contenu dans ces œuvres ne s'est pas arrêtée aux concertos eux-mêmes. On en retrouve des mouvements retravaillés et réorchestrés et remplissant une fonction tout à fait nouvelle dans les cantates d'église qu'il a écrites pour des occasions ultérieures.

    En 1837, un célèbre virtuose du clavier a interprété le Concerto pour clavecin no 1 en ré mineur de J.S. Bach. Dans un avis de concert, publié par la suite, un journaliste musical influent avait les remarques suivantes à faire : Je voudrais parler des nombreuses pensées qui ont été éveillées dans mon esprit par cette noble œuvre... Croira-t-on que sur les étagères de la Singakademie de Berlin, à laquelle le vieux Welter a légué sa bibliothèque, au moins sept de ces concertos, et un nombre incalculable d'autres compositions de Bach, en manuscrit, sont soigneusement rangés ? Peu de gens le savent, mais ils y reposent malgré tout. N'est-il pas temps, ne serait-il pas utile pour la nation allemande, de publier une édition parfaite de l'œuvre complète de Bach ?

    L'idée devrait être envisagée et les paroles d'un expert pratique, qui parle de cette entreprise à la page 76 du volume actuel de la Neue Zeitschrift (für Musik), serviraient de devise. Il dit : La publication des œuvres de Sébastien Bach est une entreprise que j'espère voir bientôt se réaliser, une entreprise qui me réjouit et qui bat pour le grand et noble art de ce père de l'harmonie. Cherchez simplement .

    Le virtuose qui a interprété le Concerto était Felix Mendelssohn. Le journaliste musical était Robert Schumann. L'expert cité était Ludwig Van Beethoven. La citation est tirée d'une lettre que Beethoven a écrite à l'éditeur de musique Hoffmeister en 1801. Voilà pour ce qui est d'établir la validité et la stature des concertos pour clavier de Bach en tant que grandes œuvres d'art musical.

  • Fantasie und Fuge über den Choral - Franz Lizt.

    29:29

    Franz Liszt (Hungarian: Liszt Ferencz, in modern use Liszt Ferenc,[note 1] from 1859 to 1867 officially Franz Ritter von Liszt)[note 2] (October 22, 1811 -- July 31, 1886) was a 19th century Hungarian[1][2][3] composer, virtuoso pianist, conductor, and teacher.

    Liszt became renowned throughout Europe during the nineteenth century for his great, virtuosic skill as a performer. He was said by his contemporaries to have been the most technically-advanced pianist of his age and perhaps the greatest pianist of all time.[4] He was also an important and influential composer, a notable piano teacher, a conductor who contributed significantly to the modern development of the art, and a benefactor to other composers and performers, notably Richard Wagner, Hector Berlioz, Camille Saint-Saëns, Edvard Grieg and Alexander Borodin.

    As a composer, Liszt was one of the most prominent representatives of the Neudeutsche Schule (New German School). He left behind an extensive and diverse body of work, in which he influenced his forward-looking contemporaries and anticipated some 20th-century ideas and trends. Some of his most notable contributions were the invention of the symphonic poem, developing the concept of thematic transformation as part of his experiments in musical form and making radical departures in harmony.
    The earliest known ancestor of Franz Liszt is his great-grandfather, Sebastian List, who as one of the thousands of German migrant serfs locally migrating within the Austrian Empire's territories (around the area nowadays constituting Lower Austria and Hungary), in the first half of the 18th century, and died in 1793 in Rajka, Moson County, Kingdom of Hungary.[6] Liszt's grandfather was an overseer on several Esterházy estates; he could play the piano, violin and organ.[7] The Liszt clan dispersed throughout Austria and Hungary and gradually lost touch with one another.[8]

    Franz Liszt was born to Marie Anna Lager and Adam Liszt on October 22, 1811, in the village of Doborján (German: Raiding) in Sopron County, in the Kingdom of Hungary.[note 3] His father would only use Hungarian language when dealing, as steward, with the folk of the village in which the family settled.[9]

    Liszt's father played the piano, violin, cello, and guitar. He had been in the service of Prince Nikolaus II Esterházy and knew Haydn, Hummel and Beethoven personally. At age six, Franz began listening attentively to his father's piano playing and showed an interest in both sacred and Romani music. Adam began teaching him the piano at age seven, and Franz began composing in an elementary manner when he was eight. He appeared in concerts at Sopron and Pozsony (Slovak: Bratislava) in October and November 1820 at age 9. After the concerts, a group of wealthy sponsors offered to finance Franz's musical education abroad.

    In Vienna, Liszt received piano lessons from Carl Czerny, who in his own youth had been a student of Beethoven and Hummel. He also received lessons in composition from Antonio Salieri, who was then music director of the Viennese court. His public debut in Vienna on December 1, 1822, at a concert at the Landständischer Saal, was a great success. He was greeted in Austrian and Hungarian aristocratic circles and also met Beethoven and Schubert.[10] In spring 1823, when the one year leave of absence came to an end, Adam Liszt asked Prince Esterházy in vain for two more years. Adam Liszt therefore took his leave of the Prince's services. At the end of April 1823, the family returned to Hungary for the last time. At end of May 1823, the family went to Vienna again.

    Towards the end of 1823 or early 1824, Liszt's first published composition appeared in print, a Variation on a Waltz by Diabelli (now S. 147), which was Variation 24 in Part II of Vaterländischer Künstlerverein. This anthology, commissioned by Diabelli, included 50 variations on his waltz by 50 different composers (Part II), Part I being taken up by Beethoven's 33 variations on the same theme, which are now better known as the Diabelli Variations, Op. 120.

  • Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No.1

    3:05

    Title: Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No.1 ( Orchestra )

    From Wikipedia, The Gymnopédies, published in Paris starting in 1888, are three piano compositions written by French composer and pianist, Erik Satie.

    These short, atmospheric pieces are written in 3/4 time, with each sharing a common theme and structure. Collectively, the Gymnopédies are regarded as the precursors to modern ambient music[citation needed] - gentle yet somewhat eccentric pieces which, when composed, defied the classical tradition. For instance, the first few bars feature a disjunct chordal theme in the bass - first, a G-major 7th in the bass, and then a B-minor chord, also in the lower register. Then comes the one-note theme in D major. Although the collection of chords at first seems too complex to be harmonious, the melody soon imbues the work with a soothing atmospheric quality.

    Satie himself used the term furniture music to refer to some of his pieces, implying they could be used as mood-setting background music. However, Satie used this term to refer to only some of his later, 20th century compositions, without specific reference to the Gymnopédies as background music. From the second half of the 20th century on, the Gymnopédies were often erroneously described as part of Satie's body of furniture music, perhaps due to John Cage's interpretation of them.

    Franz Joseph Haydn : The ‘’ Kaiser ‘’
    When in 1932 Walter Legge founded the Haydn String Quartet Society for His Master’s Voice, he chose Cecil Gray to write the programme notes. In the booklet to the first release (April 1932), Gray drew attention to the fact, whereas the orchestra has changed enormously since Haydn’s time, rendering his symphonies somewhat antiquated in sound, the string quartet was precisly the same vehicle for modern composers as it was when Haydn started to write for the medium. Nowadays Haydn symphonies are no longer considered to be antiquated, but it is probably true that the quintessence of Haydn may be found in the more intimate realm of chamber music, and especially the string quartet, which occupied him for about forty-six years : his first works in the form are now thought to have been composed about 1757, and his last, the unfinished Opus 103, from 1803.

    Haydn is said to have invented the quartet. Nowadays we know that there existed various forms of music before Haydn for two violins, viola and double bass or violoncello; but whether any of these pre-Haydn forms can be regarded legitimately as precursors of the quartet as we know it is still a matter of discussion among scholars. Haydn himself related how, about 1757, he came across the form accidentally. He had been writing string trios (two violins and violoncello), and his friend and patron, Carl Joseph, Edler von Fürnberg, who had invited Haydn to the Fürnberg Castle at Weinzierl in Lower Austria, suggested to the young composer to add a viola to the group. Haydn agreed, and the result was ten quartets (known later as Opera 1 and 2) in the then current divertimento form of five movements (Allegro - Menuet/Trio - Slow movement - Minuet/Trio - Presto).

    Haydn’s first quartets were an enormous success. Their gay, light-hearted charm won hearts everywhere. The Germans thought them frivolous but they could hardly stem the tide of Haydn’s growing popularity, even in Germany. Meanwhile Luigi Boccherini had arrived in Vienna with his father to play i the opera orchestra of the Kärntnerthortheater, and in 1761 Luigi began to write quartets in a quite different and more sophisticated manner, with three rather than five movements. Haydn must have pondered deeply the problem of quartet writing, for he wrote none for over ten years, recommencing about 1768-9 with the so-called Opus 9. There then followed Opus 17 (1771) and the epochal Opus 20 (1772) in which Haydn re-introduced large-scale fugues to the form, markedly deepened its content, enriched its texture, and posed an altogether new and startling intellectual challenge. Then we have another silence, almost ten years, until 1781, when the witty, sophisticated Opus 33 appeared, creating a new manner of quartet writing which combined the popular style with great sophistication of technique. From then until 1803, Haydn composed quartets in sets every few years, creating a standard of beauty, formal perfection and originality which inspired generations of composers, including Mozart and Beethoven.

    The very last work Haydn began as an old man was a string quartet (Opus 103, 1803). He could not finish it and sent it out to the world with a quotation from his own visiting card, ‘His ist alle mine Kraft, Alt und schwach bin ich. Fled is all my strength, Old and weak am I.’ which the admiring musical world regarded sorrowfully as their civilisation burst asunder in the Napoleonic wars.

  • Mozart - Ein Musikalischer Spaß K522 - Mov 1/4

    4:23

    WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART (1756-1791)

    Divertimento for two horns and single strings Ein Musikalischer Spaß (A Musical Joke)

    1. Allegro

    Performed by Le Concert des Nations
    Directed by Jordi Savall

    *A Musical Joke is a composition by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; the composer entered it in his Verzeichnis aller meiner Werke ('Catalogue of all my Works') on June 14, 1787. The music is intentionally written to be funny, being liberally sprinkled with obtrusively clumsy, mechanical and over-repetitive composition, together with passages evidently designed to mimic the effects of inaccurate notation and inept performance. Commentators have opined that the piece's purpose is satirical -- that [its] harmonic and rhythmic gaffes serve to parody the work of incompetent composers -- though Mozart himself is not known to have revealed his actual intentions.

    The piece consists of four movements, using forms shared with many other classical divertimenti. Nevertheless, the music has potential to appeal to the average audience of that time as a comedy, including:
    1. Use of asymmetrical phrasing, or not phrasing by four measure groups, at the beginning of the first movement, which is very uncommon for the classical period.

    2. Use of secondary dominants where subdominant chords are just fair.

    3. The use of discords in the French horns, satirizing the incompetence of the copyist, or the hornist grabbing the wrong crook.

    4. Use of a whole tone scale in the violinist's high register, probably in order to imitate the player's floundering at the high positions.

    The piece is also notable for the earliest known use of polytonality, creating the gesture of complete collapse with which the finale ends. This may be intended to produce the impression of grossly out-of-tune string playing, since the horns alone conclude in the movement's tonic key: the lower strings behave as if the tonic has suddenly become B flat, while the violins and violas switch to G major, A major and E flat major respectively.

    Some theorists believe that A Musical Joke is a parody of works by clumsy composers of Mozart's time. With such an assumption, one would find some points of the score hilarious, such as the more elementary developments of the theme, where the poor composer might feel the agony that he/she had to proceed with the development. Other theorists disagree with that view, saying that perhaps Mozart used parody and comedy as an excuse to try things that at the time were not in practice; the piece would then be intended in a more serious tone than so advertised but only for the composer himself.

    The use of asymmetrical phrasing, whole-tone scales, and multitonality is quite foreign to music of the classical era. However, these techniques were later revisited by early 20th century composers like Claude Debussy and Igor Stravinsky, who were searching for a new musical language. In this later context, these conventions were seen as legitimate new techniques in serious music. In Mozart's time, however, these non-classical elements gives the piece its comedy and perfectly expresses the composer's sense of musical humor.

    Remarkably, A Musical Joke is the first piece entered in Mozart's list of works following the death of his father Leopold on May 28th.

  • American Sketch by Joshua Reznicow from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak

    2:11

    In 2004 Red Cedar Chamber Music commissioned fifteen composers with strong Iowa ties to participate in a group commission project designed to celebrate the centennial of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904). The result was Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak, which was premiered in October 2004 at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This was followed by October performances in the Czech Republic including a concert on the grand staircase of the National Museum in Prague.

    Flutist Jan Boland arranged the opening theme from the Scherzo, the third movement of Dvorak's American Quartet, for flute, viola & guitar. Each composer provided a one-minute variation on this theme. Dvorak wrote and premiered the American Quartet while living in Spillville, Iowa for three-months in 1893. The theme from the Scherzo is inspired by the call of the Scarlet Tanager, a native bird Dvorak heard as he walked along the Turkey River in Spillville.

    The variations were completed over a period of 15 months. The composers were selected for the quality of their compositions and for the diversity of their style and backgrounds. Although all composers have strong Iowa connections, they were living in California, Michigan, Vermont, and Oregon as well as in Iowa -- some are primarily professional composers, but others are jazz musicians, doublers, film score arrangers, orchestra conductors, and college professors.

    In 2009 two additional variations were added by Andrew Earle Simpson and Joshua Reznicow.

    The original set of 15 Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak completed in 2004 appears on Red Cedar Chamber Music's 2005 Czech-Inspired compact disc, Fleur de Son Classics 57974.

    The idea for this group commission came from several sources. Flutist Jan Boland had recently become intrigued by, and subsequently performed, a work by Anton Richa, 18 Variations and a Fantasie Op. 51, which consisted of eighteen one-minute variations on a theme by Mozart. Another inspiration was a book project led by Greg Shanley of KUNI-FM radio; he hired a series of Iowa authors to create an Iowa mystery book by passing the book from author to author. And finally, the most important inspiration came from the beautiful music by Antonin Dvorak himself.

    List of variations from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak (2004-2009) performed on October 7, 2012 and posted to YouTube.
