Mozart - "Ein Musikalischer Spaß" K522 - Mov 4/4
Mozart - "Ein Musikalischer Spaß" K522 - Mov 4/4 WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART (1756-1791) Divertimento for two horns and single strings "Ein Musikalischer Spaß" (A Musical Joke) 4. Presto 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 ...

Luigi Alva - Mozart "Cosi Fan Tutte" "Un'aura amorosa"
Luigi Alva - Mozart "Cosi Fan Tutte" "Un'aura amorosa" WA Mozart "Cosi Fan Tutte" "Un'aura amorosa" Luigi Alva - Ferrando Otto Klemperer - Conductor New Philharmonia Orchestra Paintings - Francesco Hayez - Special thanks to 77Opera for her continuous help. Francesco Hayez (1791 1882) was an Italian painter, the leading artist of Romanticism in mid-19th-century Milan, renowned for his grand historical paintings, political allegories and exceptionally fine portraits. Hayez came from a relatively poor family from Venice. His father was of French origin while his mother, Chiara Torcella, was from Murano. The child Francesco, youngest of five sons, was brought up by his mother's sister, who had married Giovanni Binasco, a well-off shipowner and collector of art. From childhood he showed a predisposition for drawing, so his uncle apprenticed him to an art restorer. Later he became a student of the painter Francisco Magiotto with whom he continued his studies for three years. He was admitted to the painting course of the New Academy of Fine Arts in 1806, where he studied under Teodoro Matteini. In 1809 he won a competition from the Academy of Venice for one year of study at the Accademia di San Luca in Rome. He remained in Rome until 1814, then moved to Naples where he was commissioned by Joachim Murat to paint a major work depicting Ulysses at the court of Alcinous. In the mid 1830s he attended the "Salotto Maffei" salon in Milan, hosted by Clara Maffei (whose portrait Hayez painted for her husband), and he was still in Milan in ...

Mozart Symphony 41 K 551 - Molto Allegro
Mozart Symphony 41 K 551 - Molto Allegro Woody Allen once said that Mozart's Symphony 41 proved the existence of God. Certainly, a symphony of such grandness and scale had, until the summer of 1788, never before been seen in the musical universe. Its implications for the direction of music in the future, and its influence on future composers is immeasurable. What makes Mozart's Jupiter symphony worthy to share the name of the most powerful god of the Roman world? The answer to this question comes in the Molto Allegro, and more specifically in its coda, (8:09-8:36). In the coda, Mozart takes the five musical themes or melodies that had been developed throughout the final movement, and does something that no one has ever achieved to the extent that he did, not even the illustrious Beethoven. What Mozart does is take these five themes and combines them to create a fugato in five-part counterpoint. That is, he takes the five melodies and simultaneously plays them in a variety of combinations and permutations. Imagine five separate melodies, all with their own notes, being played simultaneously, but each constantly changing. It's impossible for the human ear to focus on the enormous amount of notes that this simultaneous playing and constant changing entails. The effect is that the music seems to encompass an infinite amount of sound. With lesser two or three-part fugues, it is occasionally possible to sense everything that is going on. Once you get to four voices, it's nearly impossible to detect all of the nuances.

Mozart String Quartet 20 'Hoffmeister' in D Major (1/5) Allegretto
Mozart String Quartet 20 'Hoffmeister' in D Major (1/5) Allegretto Quatuor Mosaiques Period Instruments String Quartet in D Major, K. 499, was written in 1786 in Vienna by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It was published by — if not indeed written for — his friend Franz Anton Hoffmeister. Because of this, the quartet has acquired the nickname Hoffmeister. There are four movements: * I. Allegretto, in D major * II. Menuetto: Allegretto, in D major, with a trio section in D minor * III. Adagio, in G major * IV. Allegro, in D major This work, sandwiched between the six quartets he dedicated to Joseph Haydn (17825) and the following three Prussian quartets (178990), intended to be dedicated to King Frederick William II of Prussia (the first edition bore no dedication, however), is often polyphonic in a way uncharacteristic of the earlier part of the classical music era. The menuetto and its trio give good examples of this in brief, with the brief irregular near-canon between first violin and viola in the second half of the main portion of the minuet, and the double imitations (between the violins, and between the viola and cello) going on in the trio.
[EuroArts 2055188] MOZART: 6 Violin Sonatas, K. 301-306
[EuroArts 2055188] MOZART: 6 Violin Sonatas, K. 301-306 Gil Shaham, violin; Orli Shaham, piano As their personal tribute to Mozart in his anniversary year 2006, Gil & Orli Shaham performed a selection of violin sonatas by the Austrian master in the Palais Daun-Kinsky in Vienna. Brimming with energy and bravery, tempered only by a deep understanding of the music, the siblings paid their respect to the composer on his 250th birthday. Violinist Gil Shaham is internationally recognized as a virtuosic and engaging classical artists by both audiences and critics alike. He is sought after throughout the world for concerto appearances with celebrated orchestras and conductors, as well as for recital and ensemble appearances on the great concert stages and at the most prestigious festivals. His sister Orli has established an impressive international reputation as a gifted pianist. Although they were born less than five years apart, the siblings seldom appear together in public. Apparently, their parents discouraged them from doing so, since Orli, as she explains, was "just ready to come out of the sandbox" when Gil was already having a big career. This DVD finally brings them together in a recording. www.naxos.com
