    Redorded in 1983-84, at Prague

    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.

    COMMENTAIRE COMPLET : VOIR PREMIER COMMENTAIRE ÉPINGLÉ.
    Nous pouvons conclure en disant que la vie de Chostakovitch est une vie en 15 symphonies. Lui-même déclara : Si on me coupait les mains, je continuerais à écrire de la musique avec le stylo tenu entre les dents ». À l'âge de 18 ans, il écrit sa Symphonie n°1 et le genre restera avec lui tout au long de sa carrière. Il compose une nouvelle symphonie à intervalles réguliers et à des moments clés de son développement. Celles-ci témoignent à la fois de ses angoisses les plus profondes et des événements tragiques de l'histoire de son pays. Un bref examen de ces quinze symphonies s'impose.

    Chacune marque une étape dans l'itinéraire de l'artiste qui est devenu, au fil des ans, comme celui des grands écrivains russes, la conscience de son peuple. C'est donc sans aucun doute dans le domaine de la symphonie que Chostakovitch a donné l'essentiel de son message artistique comme chantre de son pays, de l'homme face à son destin. On peut relever quelques faiblesses, mais dans le même temps reconnaître la permanente sincérité du compositeur. Pour ces raisons, les versions russes restent préférables aux versions occidentales, même si sur un plan strictement musical et surtout technique elles sont parfois inférieures.

    L'intégrale Kondrashin présente l'intérêt de l'unité de conception, tant de la part du chef que de la part de l'orchestre. Elle a été réalisée entièrement par Melodya dans les studios d'enregistrement de Moscou. On ne peut prétendre connaître Chostakovitch sans écouter ces précieux enregistrements.

    Composer and conductor Lee Actor (b. 1952 in Denver, Colorado) was one of five composers selected in November 2014 as an Honored Artist of the American Prize, the first time this prestigious award has been bestowed.

Divertimento for Small Orchestra was a finalist for the 2016 American Prize in Orchestra Composition, Concerto for Piano and Orchestra received a Special Judge's Citation for the 2015 American Prize in Orchestral Composition, Concerto for Timpani and Orchestra was a finalist for the 2014 American Prize in Orchestral Composition, String Quartet No. 1 was a finalist for the 2014 American Prize in Chamber Music Composition, Circus Symphonicus was a finalist in the Columbia Orchestra's 2013 American Composer Competition, Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Orchestra was a finalist for the 2013 American Prize in Orchestral Composition, Concerto for Violin and Orchestra was a finalist for the 2012 American Prize in Orchestral Composition, Variations and Fugue for Orchestra was a finalist in both the Columbia Orchestra's 2007 American Composer Competition and the Holyoke Civic Symphony's 2005 Composition Competition, and Prelude to a Tragedy was selected as a finalist in the Columbia Orchestra's 2005 American Composer Competition. Conductor/composer Robert Ian Winstin has written, “Lee Actor's Prelude to a Tragedy is one of the best written new works I've had the privilege to conduct or record. It is clear, precise and very tightly written. It has a style that is completely original … an incredible orchestral tour de force as written by an immensely talented composer.” The CD including Mr. Winstin’s performance of this piece with the Kiev Philharmonic was released by ERM Media in March 2005.

    Recorded in 1972-1984, at Amsterdam

    Elly Ameling occupe une place éminente dans l’histoire de l’interprétation des lieder de Schubert. Ces prestations dénotent le talent inné d’une cantatrice sans affectation dont la vie et l’être entier ont été consacrés à son art et à la perfection de celui-ci sur une période de plus de trente ans durant laquelle ses critères d’excellence se sont constamment maintenus au plus haut niveau.

    C’est à proprement parler Bach qui la mena à sa compréhension des lieder de Schubert. Sa maitrise des longues lignes presque instrumentales de ce compositeur fit qu’elle se trouva en possession, lorsqu’elle aborda Schubert, d’un fondement assuré de production et de technique vocales pour bâtir ses interprétations de lieder. Naturellement, sa connaissance de Schubert datait de ses années de jeunes cantatrice, durant lesquelles elle le chantait déjà, mais l’expérience de compositeurs plus anciens porta son interprétation de la musique de Schubert à un sommet de perfection.

    Bien qu’ayant beaucoup appris de ses professeurs, Elly Ameling a toujours insisté sur la nécessité de ce qu’elle appelle ‘’parvenir à se connaitre’’. Elle est persuadée que l’on doit comprendre sa voix et ce qu’elle est capable d’accomplir pour en porter au maximum les possibilités. Un professeur peut vous enseigner tout le long du chemin, mais c’est finalement la propre responsabilité de l’artiste que de réaliser ce dont il est capable avec ses propres forces. Il y a d’autres manières d’interpréter Schubert mais celle d’Elly Ameling restera toujours un exemple d’interprétation musicale véridique, naturelle qui, toute entière venue du coeur va au coeur.

  • John Scott: Robin Hood silent score live w/ Royal Philharmonic @ Cagodan Hall, July 2012

    1:13:01

    In 2006 John Scott was approached by the Nottingham Symphony to write a two-plus hour score of high adventure and romance for the 1922 silent epic, “Robin Hood”, starring Douglas Fairbanks. Several years later the work was again performed as part of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2012 program at Cagodan Hall in London, and it is from that live-to-picture performance that this suite of highlights is derived. In short, the varied and sweeping work is one of John Scott’s absolute best achievements - composed at nearly 80 years of age, yet with all the enthusiasm and inspiration of a young composer eager to show off their mettle. It’s a two-hour parade of nonstop inspiration as rich musical ideas are introduced, intermingled and transformed; just as one assumes the composer cannot cram another memorable idea into the dizzying volley of themes on offer, a fresh new idea come bustling gleefully into the fray. It is adventure music of the absolute highest order, and Scott’s knack for musical storytelling ensures the volume of ideas never overwhelms the listener.

    The main theme for Robin Hood is introduced immediately at the onset and carries a valorous depiction of old-fashioned adventure and chivalrous pomp. One recalls Strauss or perhaps even Laurence Goldenthal’s “Clash of the Titans” theme. While not Scott’s most original melody (nor the best theme of the score), it provides a perfectly heroic anchor for the musical journey ahead, with just enough humor and whimsy about it to tip the hat to Fairbanks’ wry charisma. The theme reappears often, including minor-key variants for moment of despair or defeat, and is simple enough a construct to allow its clever deconstruction and intermingling with other melodies as appropriate.

    And other melodies abound! It is not the principal identity of the score, but rather this wealth of tertiary ideas, that make “Robin Hood” the truly special achievement it is. After a romantic swell of celli and violins at 1:23 Scott introduces us to an archaic seven-note motif for the Crusades-era setting itself, invoking a martial atmosphere of determination that recalls Miklos Rozsa’s biblical scores. 4:34 introduces an absolutely lovely bucolic theme for Lady Marian herself on oboe, heard again in a rapturous extrapolation at 11:41 with gorgeous harmonic development that inexplicably brings to mind James Horner’s early, long-lined theme-writing. This leads into a fantastic heroic extension of the melody’s secondary phrase at 13:35 that redresses it with heraldic flair and pageantry. At 14:32 Scott introduces us to his love theme for Marian and Robin Hood - doubling later in the film as a friendship or bonding theme also for Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men as well - and it is this quintessentially gorgeous and haunting creation of such sweet and humble character, filled with genuine longing and romance, that gives the score its true beating heart. The theme will reappear in different guises throughout, often in counterpoint with the Robin Hood fanfare; it cries out tragically at 34:16, basks in achingly sumptuous melancholy at 55:29, and is beset to percussive warlike guise at 56:52 (a very inspired and original setting for such a lovely theme). Add to this principal set of themes a host of inspired action motifs or one-off musical set-pieces - brilliant Respighi-like flourishes of color at 29:22, an octave-leaping Herrmann-esque danger motif at 38:32, an utterly rousing swashbuckling theme at 45:38, a florid adventure motif at 47:26, a Spanish-style dance with castanet at 49:15, a cascading string theme at 51:13 whose swirling progressions beguile with lofty elegance and so forth - and the end result is a singularly inspired tapestry of rich musical ideas that sits comfortably atop the composer’s already-impressive list of achievements.

    ABOUT THIS RECORDING: This was a private recording captured by a single microphone at the podium as John conducted the Royal Philharmonic. It is NOT a professional recording and has many of the requisite issues endemic to live venue recordings (crowd noises, coughs, etc.). The two hour film was shown in two parts with an intermission in between; music from the first half had acceptable-enough sound (comprising the first 40:12 of this suite). Thereafter music from the film’s second half comprises the balance of the suite, and this recording is sadly marred by some annoying static in the bass region that could not be satisfactorily removed without compromising other frequency ranges. Those with headphones beware, it is more distracting when listened to in that manner.

    DISCLAIMER: I do not own the music included in my channel and make no claims as such. All videos have been uploaded for EDUCATIONAL purposes only to make the public aware of obscure and forgotten works by deserving composers who would otherwise find no online audience whatsoever.

  • 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.

  • Benjamin Godard: Violin Concerto No.2 in G minor, Op.131, Thomas Christian

    24:00

    Benjamin Godard - Violin Concerto No.2, in G minor, Op. 131 (1891), Thomas Christian (violin), Bamberger Symphoniker, Christian Simonis (conductor)
    I. Allegro moderato – 00:00
    II. Adagio quasi andante – 10:08
    III. Allegro non troppo – 17:46

    Benjamin Louis Paul Godard (18 August 1849 – 10 January 1895) was a French violinist and Romantic-era composer of Jewish extraction.
    „Anyone consulting the average musical dictionary for information about this composer will be disappointed to find very little biographical information. Hereceive just a brief mention: his works are not discussed, but, at best, simply labelled 'salon music' or 'little virtuoso pieces'.
    Modern musical thinking around 1900 disparagingly labelled these two trends as empty virtuosity and trivial salon music for young ladies, a condemnation which was also applied, though unjustly, to many of the more serious composers of the day. Only slowly, as these prejudices are overcome, is the music of such composers regaining its status - a process which is at last giving us the opportunity to hear their works for ourselves and form our own opinion.
    Benjamin Godard was the son of an affluent family, started violin lessons early, and by the age of fourteen was already studying violin and composition at the Paris Conservatoire. One of his teachers there was Henri Vieuxtemps, who also taught Emile Sauret a short time later. Godard submitted entries for the Prix de Rome, the Conservatoire's coveted composition prize, in 1867 and again in 1868. If he failed both times, he was at least in good company: Berlioz too had been rejected twice. After completing his studies Godard devoted himself exclusively to playing in string quartets and composing. His impressive list of compositions runs to over 150 and ranges through all genres - symphonies, symphonic poems, concertos, chamber music, songs and a great number of salon pieces for piano. Many of his works were performed immediately at the 'Concerts populaires' thanks to his friend and patron Jules Pasdeloup. By 1882 his fame was so great that a festival took place devoted exclusively to his works. In 1887, at the height of his fame, he was appointed professor at the Paris Conservatoire.
    Godard's late second Violin Concerto in G minor op. 131 was dedicated to his friend, the violinist Johannes Wolff. Beautifully written for the instrument, it is a romantic violin concerto par excellence both in the virtuosity of its violin part and its whole conception. The character of the first movement is determined by the contrast between the powerful chords at the opening and the more tranquil second theme. Individual sections, recurring constantly, are linked by the soloist with brilliant cadenza-like interpolations. In effective contrast, the second movement (Adagio quasi Andante) is pervaded by a darker colouring established by the horn in a brooding opening theme. The mood is continued in the violin's apparently simple, sustained melody, which is briefly interrupted in the central section.
    Breathlessly energetic triplets open the last movement (Allegro non troppo), and violin and orchestra are given very little respite through-out. The solo violin's first relatively long rest is followed by a lyrical theme, and the two melodic `blocks' are then juxtaposed and contrasted. A coda in faster tempo, beginning at the point where a cadenza might be expected, brings the movement to a close.” (from Album notes by Michael Raab)

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 in D minor: Ode to Joy HQ

    12:58

    ✖ All music and images copyrights belong to original artists and distributors.

    The Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 (also known as the Choral), is Ludwig van Beethoven's final complete symphony. Completed in 1824, the symphony is one of the best-known works in classical music. Among critics, it is almost universally considered one of Beethoven's greatest works, and many consider it one of the greatest compositions in the western musical canon.

    The symphony was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony (thus making it a choral symphony). The words are sung during the final movement by four vocal soloists and a chorus. They were taken from the Ode to Joy, a poem written by Friedrich Schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803, with additions made by the composer. Today, it stands as one of the most played symphonies in the world.

    In 2001, Beethoven's autograph score of the Ninth Symphony, held by the Berlin State Library, was added to the United Nations Memory of the World Programme Heritage list, becoming the first musical score so honored.

  • Kronos Quartet Performs At NPR Musics 10th Anniversary Concert

    18:30

    Collaboration. It's at the heart of many of NPR Music's finest moments. And it's in the DNA of the intrepid Kronos Quartet, which some 40 years ago began working with composers around the globe to spotlight new music.

    Opening our 10th anniversary concert at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., Kronos, true to form, gave an appreciative audience both a world premiere and an extraordinary surprise collaboration.

    The band began its set with a soulful rendition of House of the Rising Sun, in which lead violinist David Harrington belted out like a blues singer. Then, in a hair-raising arrangement by Jacob Garchik, music by the young Egyptian electro-folk artist Islam Chipsy ricocheted in frenetic waves.

    Written for Kronos' open access education initiative Fifty for the Future and called Zaghlala, the piece had not been heard by any audience anywhere. The music refers to blurred vision caused by strong light hitting the eyes. Kronos' violist Hank Dutt drove the pulsating beat, swapping his viola for the Middle Eastern dumbek. Kronos also conjured up Gershwin's Summertime, inspired, Harrington noted, by Janis Joplin's mesmerizing version.

    Finally, at the end, came the Wilco moment.

    Harrington announced the last tune, Born Alone, as belonging to one of the group's favorite bands — Wilco. As the strings fired up a brand new arrangement, created for this event, Jeff Tweedy himself emerged from back stage to sing his song.

    It was a stunning collaborative moment. All genre pigeonholes seemed to fall away as these artists of singular purpose converged. -- Tom Huizenga

    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.

    National Park «Sviati Gory» (Holy Mountains)

    National Park «Sviati Gory» was established by the decree of the President of Ukraine № 135/97 from the 13th of February, 1997.

    All the organizational works were carried on by the Head of State Department of Ecology and Natural Resources in the Donetsk region S.Kurulenko. The project of establishment was prepared by the Laboratory of Nature Conservation Problems of Donetsk University under the direction of Deputy Head of the same Department Gennadiy Molodan. He did much to study wildlife and promote nature conservation in the Donetsk region. Being a high-ranking official, Gennadiy Molodan understood the value of the natural complexes which managed to survive, he sincerely felt and understood the responsibility for keeping them for descendants. He was an advanced person in matters of ecology and actually he was the one who brought the aspirations of scientists into a formalized idea of a national park. Gennadiy Molodan’s efforts were not in vain, and the process of creating the park was transferred to the practical level. General public, scientists and administrative structures were involved in the process of establishment of the National Park Sviati Gory. The Mayor of Slavyanogirsk A.Karlov and the Head of the Main Department of Reserves and National Parks of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Nuclear Safety of Ukraine N.Stetsenko also made a significant contribution to the creation of the National Park.

    National Park Sviati Gory is subordinated to the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine. The territory of the park is located in the north of Donetsk region, in Slavyansk, Krasnolimansk and Artemovsk districts. It includes the resort city of Svyatogorsk. National Park Sviati Gory is the first national park which has been created in the left-bank Ukraine.

    The territory of the park is of 40605.5 hectares, 11894.5 of them were given to the National Park for permanent use, and other 28711 hectares are in the use of the Slavyansk and Krasnolimansk forestries and city Svyatogorsk.

    About 90% of the territory of the park is covered with forests, a significant area is occupied by the floodplain of the Severskiy Donets river with water meadows, lakes, marshes and former river-beds. Currently, 57 species of mammals live here, over 200 species of birds nest here or stay during migrations. 17 species of amphibians and reptiles, 30 fish species have been found here in their typical habitats. Within the territory of National Park and in its closest vicinity there are about 1200 species of vascular plants and at least 1000 species of mushrooms. The flora and fauna of National Park Sviati Gory includes 119 plant and animal species, which that are listed in the Red Book of Ukraine, 31 species is included into the European Red List.

    The history of the park is virtually identical to the dramatic story of the young Ukrainian state. Just before the creation of the park state forestry enterprises have cut down about 40% of native pine forests in the future territory of the park, during the regime of Yanukovych park painfully suffered from poaching orgy and uncontrolled logging. Fighting for the freeing of the city Slavyansk from separatists and armed gangs in 2014 also had no benefit for valuable natural complexes.

    But the park not only managed to survive, but also saved the heritage which had been entrusted to the park for protection by Ukrainian people.

    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.

  • Dvorak and the Scarlet Tanager by Harvey Sollberger from Spillville Variations on a Theme by Dvorak

    1:41

    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.

  • 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...

    Claudio Abbado (Conductor)

    Born: June 26, 1933 - Milan, Italy
    Died: January 20, 2014 - Bologna, Italy

    The outstanding Italian conductor, Claudio Abbado, studied the piano at the Milan Conservatory with his father Michelangelo Abbado, and went on to study conducting with Hans Swarowsky at the Vienna Academy of Music. He won the 1958 Koussevitsky Competition, establishing him in Italy, and then won the 1963 Dimitri Mitropoulos Prize, after which he rapidly became known internationally as an orchestral and opera conductor.

    Claudio Abbado first conducted the Berlin Philharmonic in 1966, and an important artistic relationship began which resulted in the orchestra electing him their Principal Conductor and their fifth Artistic Advisor in 1989. Under Abbado, in each season contemporary music takes its place alongside the classical and romantic repertoire, and each season also features a cycle of concerts dedicated to a particular theme: music inspired by the poetry of Holderlin; the legend of Faust; works centred around Greek drama, and so on.

    Claudio Abbado made his debut at La Scala in his native Milan in 1960 and served as music director there from 1968 to 1986, conducting not only the traditional Italian repertoire but also presenting a contemporary opera each year, as well as a concert series devoted to the works of Alban Berg and Modest Mussorgsky. While at La Scala, Abbado also founded the Orchestra della Scala, for the performance of orchestral repertoire in concert.

    In 1965 Claudio Abbado appeared for the first time with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in a concert at the Salzburg Festival, and made his Viennese debut two years later in the orchestra's subscription concert series. Claudio Abbado served as Music Director of the Vienna State Opera from 1986 to 1991, where he enriched the repertoire with premiere productions of Mussorgsky's original Boris Godunov and Khovanshchina, Schubert's Fierrabras and Rossini's Il viaggio a Reims. In 1987 he was named General Music Director of the City of Vienna, and in 1988 he founded the music festival Wien Modern, which has since expanded to include all aspects of contemporary art. This interdisciplinary festival takes place each year under Abbado's direction.

    As founder and music director of the European Union Youth Orchestra (1978) and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester (1986), Claudio Abbado also showed deep commitment to the development of young musicians, an interest which extends to his role as Artistic Advisor to the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. In 1992, together with cellist Natalia Gutman, he created Berliner Begegnungen (Encounters in Berlin), an annual gathering during the Berlin Festival in which experienced professional musicians join together to rehearse and perform with talented young instrumentalists in concerts of classical and contemporary chamber music.

    Claudio Abbado also strives to encourage and support young composers. At his initiative, an annual international composers competition took place each year in Vienna, and since 1994 prizes for composition for the figurative arts and for literature are awarded by the Salzburg Easter Festival, of which Abbado became Artistic Director in 1994.

    Among the numerous awards and honours Claudio Abbado received are the Evening Standard Opera Award for his Boris Godunov at Covent Garden; the Legion d'Honneur from the French Ministry of Culture; the Gran Croce, the highest honour of Italy, and the highest civilian honour of Germany, the Bundesverdienstkreuz (1992). The Vienna Philharmonic awarded him their Ring of Honour in 1973, and the Golden Nicolai Medal in 1980. In 1985 he was awarded the Gold Medal by the International Gustav Mahler Society, presented in recognition of his service to the music of Gustav Mahler. He is an honorary member of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna and received honorary degrees from the universities of Cambridge, Aberdeen and Ferrara. In 1994 Claudio Abbado was awarded the International Ernst von Siemens Music Prize, Germany's most prestigious music award.

    Claudio Abbado made numerous recordings, mostly for the labels Deutsche Grammophon, EMI Classics and Sony Classics.

  • 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.

  • Corelli - 12 Concerti Grossi, Op 6

    2:25:51

    Twelve concerti grossi, Op. 6, is a collection of twelve concerti written by Arcangelo Corelli, arranged for publication in 1714. These are some of the finest examples of the baroque-style concerti grossi, that is, concertos for a concertino group, in these cases of a 1st violin, a 2nd violin and a cello, and a ripieno group of 1st violins, 2nd violins, violas, cellos and continuo. They were the model for the later publication in London, in 1739, of Handel's own collection of twelve Opus 6 Concerti Grossi.

  • 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.

    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.
