Albert Roussel: Symphony No.3 in G minor, op.42 [1/4]
Albert Roussel: Symphony No.3 in G minor, op.42 [1/4] Albert Roussel (1869-1937): Symphony No.3 in G minor, op.42 [1929-1930] I. Allegro vivo BBC Symphony Orchestra Lionel Bringuier, conductor At every stage of his career, Roussel's best work is masterly finished, engaging, surefire. But for the connoisseur, tracing his stylistic evolution possesses a fascination of its own. If the opera-ballet Padmåvatî (1914-1918) crowns his second manner, making explicit the preoccupation with instinct and annihilation ironically broached in the ballet Le Festin de l'araignée (1912), his Symphony No. 2 (1919-1920) encapsulates the period with formal yet disturbing point. The ironic detachment of Le Festin gives way to dark (and harmonically adventurous) foreboding, while the irrepressibly animated episodes are fraught with frenzied feverishness. But by the mid-1920s the skies had cleared, so to speak, and Roussel entered his final, neo-Classical, phase with the orchestral Suite in F (1926) whose three movements—two in Baroque dance forms—afford a foretaste of the Symphony No. 3 in their effortless combination of energy and serenity. Commissioned by Koussevitzky, conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Suite received its premiere by those forces January 21, 1927, continuing a Francophile tradition that had seen Henri Rabaud and Pierre Monteux as chef d'orchestre, and entertained Roussel's teacher and colleague, Vincent d'Indy, in 1905 and 1921. To celebrate the BSO's 50th anniversary, Koussevitzky commissioned a number of works ...
Concerto in D (Michael Haydn) - I. Adagio
Concerto in D (Michael Haydn) - I. Adagio Andrew Bishop, Trumpet "Live in Concert" featuring Genevieve Bishop, Piano Blanka Bednarz, Violin Presser Hall Auditorium Bethany College November 20, 2001 While I certainly concede that I am no pianist to speak of, you might notice on the program below that I performed a Chopin Nocturne on piano before the Michael Haydn concerto. I did this for two reasons: 1. I wanted to pretend I was a somewhat well-rounded musician, and 2. I needed a chop break after a taxing piece on B-flat and C trumpet respectively. Not too many trumpeters have the audacity to perform this concerto live, let alone as just one piece on a very demanding full recital. As most of you trumpet folk know, in the first movement this concerto features the highest note ever composed for the classical trumpet: the high A6, the 24th partial on the natural D trumpet. I, of course, love to push the envelope -- for better or for worse -- I thought I'd scale up to it for a second time in a cadenza. I saw another guy upload a partial video of himself performing this, and he listed his equipment for all the trumpet tech-heads. I suppose I'll do the same: Schilke P5-4, and a regular old Bach 7E mouthpiece.

Gabriel Grovlez: 4 pieces from 'L'Almanach aux Images'
Gabriel Grovlez: 4 pieces from 'L'Almanach aux Images' 1 - Les Marionnettes (The Puppets); 4 - Chanson du Chasseur (Huntsman's song) ; 5 - Les Ânes (The Donkeys) ; 7 - Chanson de l'Escarpolette 'L'Almanach aux Images', a set of eight short piano pieces, is perhaps Grovlez' best-known work, and these four pieces complete my recording of the set - the other four appear on other videos which I made over a year ago. Each piece in 'L'Almanach aux Images'is prefaced by a poem by the French 'fantaisiste' poet Tristan Klingsor (1874-1966). He is still in EU copyright for a long time to come, so I will not reproduce the poems. Grovlez (1879-1944) was a French pianist and conductor, who premiered Ravel's Sonatine in 1906.

(1/2) Weiss - Lute Sonata(Suite) No.25 in g minor / Robert Barto, ba
(1/2) Weiss - Lute Sonata(Suite) No.25 in g minor / Robert Barto, ba Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687~1750) - Sonate für Laute Nr.25 g-moll - I. Prélude - 00:00 II. Allemande andante - 00:38 III. Passepied - 05:44 IV. Bourrée - 07:52 Robert Barto (Baroque Lute) Silvius Leopold Weiss (12 October 1687 -- 16 October 1750) was a German composer and lutenist. Born in Grottkau near Breslau, the son of Johann Jacob Weiss, also a lutenist, he served at courts in Breslau, Rome, and Dresden, where he died. Until recently, he was thought to have been born in 1686, but recent evidence suggests that he was in fact born the following year. Weiss was one of the most important and most prolific composers of lute music in history and one of the best-known and most technically accomplished lutenists of his day. He wrote around 600 pieces for lute, most of them grouped into 'sonatas' (not to be confused with the later classical sonata, based on sonata form) or suites, which consist mostly of baroque dance pieces. Weiss also wrote chamber pieces and concertos, but only the solo parts have survived for most of them. In later life, Weiss became a friend of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and met JS Bach through him. JS Bach and Weiss were said to have competed in improvisation, as the following account by Johann Friedrich Reichardt describes: "Anyone who knows how difficult it is to play harmonic modulations and good counterpoint on the lute will be surprised and full of disbelief to hear from eyewitnesses that Weiss, the great lutenist, challenged JS Bach, the great ...
Popper Cello Concerto: I. Allegro Moderato, Alex Chang; Part 2
Popper Cello Concerto: I. Allegro Moderato, Alex Chang; Part 2 Alex Chang, 16, has been studying cello since the age of 9. He was recognized as a gifted child by Gifted Child Society at 6 and amazed his piano and cello teachers with a surprising capacity for fast learning and his unusual ability to interpret classical music from an early age. Described by The Julliard Schools Dr. Ann Alton to posses the rare ability to channel the extra degree of electricity that moves the listener, Alex was accepted in 2006 to the Pre-College Division of The Juilliard School, where he is currently studying under Dr. Alton as a scholarship student. Alex also studied with Jun Jensen, Madeleine Golz and the late Ardyth Alton. An aspiring professional musician, Alex has earned accolades in numerous competitions including the New York Music Competition, the Associated Music Teachers League Scholarship Awards Competition, the Honors Competition of Thurnauer Music School and the Golden Key Music Festival. During the summer of 2009, Alex won the Best Concerto Award from Lake Placid String Festival with Dvoraks Cello Concerto in B minor. In 2009, he was honored as the Alternate Winner in the Ensemble 212 Young Artist Competitions cello selection piece, Tchaikovskys Variations on a Rococo Theme. Alex has performed at prestigious venues including Lincoln Centers Paul Recital Hall, Morse Recital Hall and the Peter J. Sharp Theater for orchestral concerts, chamber concerts and solo recitals. Alex has also performed in New York Citys Steinway Hall as a finalist ...
