"In this brave new world of pianistic obligatory democracy made of verifiably good (if not great) and accomplished (if not perfect) players, JOHN BELL YOUNG stands out as one of the unsung heroes of the end of this epoch. He is at once a pianist endowed with the rare gift of musical story-telling, a charmer with a rare understanding of the beauty and power of harmony, and a performer full of savoir-faire, genuine temperament and true love for his instrument" Michel Block Pianist, recording artist EMI, ProPiano Records "Let me say at once that I find your playing extremely accomplished and sensitive ... superb playing... Altogether, I think it is a wonderful achievement that you have recorded these works." -Sir Charles Mackerras "I still find this disc [Prisms] the most satisfying and artistic piano recital ever recorded." -Hugh Downs, ABC-News "20/20" "John Bell Young is an American pianist who has established himself as a Scriabinist of international repute. His recital disc features striking readings of sonatas 5 and 7, plus a number of shorter works (Americus 1013). His reading ...
Gustav Mahler - Symphony No.9 in D-major - IV, Adagio. Sehr langsam
Gustav Mahler - Symphony No.9 in D-major - IV, Adagio. Sehr langsam The Symphony No. 9 by Gustav Mahler was written between 1908 and 1909, and was the last symphony that he completed. The symphony is in four movements: 1. Andante comodo (D major); 2. Im Tempo eines gemächlichen Ländlers. Etwas täppisch und sehr derb (C major); 3. Rondo-Burleske: Allegro assai. Sehr trotzig (A minor); 4. Adagio. Sehr langsam und noch zurückhaltend (D-flat major). Although the symphony has the traditional number of movements, it is unusual in that the first and last are slow rather than fast. As is often the case with Mahler, one of the middle movements is a ländler. The first movement embraces a loose sonata form; the work opens with a hesitant, syncopated motif which is to return at the height of the movement's development as a sudden intrusion of "death in the midst of life", announced by trombones and marked within the score "with the greatest force". The second movement is a dance, a Ländler, but it has becomes distorted to the point that it no longer resembles a dance. The movement contains shades of the second movement of Mahler's Fourth Symphony, in the distortion of a traditional dance into a dance of death. For example, Mahler alters traditional chord sequences into near-unrecognizable variations, turning the rustic and mostly diatonic C major introductory Ländler into a vicious whole-tone waltz, saturated with accidentals and frantic rhythms. The third movement, in the form of a rondo, displays the final maturation of Mahler's contrapuntal skills ...

The audio recording here is specialy edited for the YouTube channel in order to maintain its completeness. There are no cut parts, this is the whole Adagietto, for your enjoyment. ---------------------------------- A note from the author(s): Dear, friends, I thank you for your nice comments and I am glad that you are enjoying these beautiful musical master pieces. I noticed that, from time to time, people will ask why is the image of Jean-Marc Barr on some of the clips. Well, it is a long story. Me (Mare79, a "name" from the image) and "Mayol" (a friend of mine) have made these several classical music videos during the time we were on one forum once. The picture of Jean-Marc Bar was the image of his avatar, and since all these videos were generally his idea, we decided to place a full photo of Jean-Marc in them. Jean-Marc had a role in one of his movies where he played a character named Mayol, so... It was just an idea at that time, but it still remained after all, since we didn't want to remove the video in order to upload a new one without this photo and make this clip an invalid entry in your favourites playlists. So, the smaller image represents the photo of the composer. Enjoy the music, and have a nice day. Best regards to all.
