Gioachino Rossini's complete 'William Tell Overture' played by Pe www.facebook.com/petelashleymusic www.petelashley.com This version of Rossini's 'William Tell Overture' is from Pete Lashley's 2010 album 'It All Comes Round'. The album is now available on ITUNES. It was recorded at Stonegate Studios in Bentham, North Yorkshire by Sam Parkinson (www.samesevennotes.co.uk). Four movements make up Rossini's 'William Tell Overture'. Pete Lashley plays them all on acoustic guitars,sometimes double-tracked and more occasionally triple tracked. It begins with the 'Prelude' - a slow passage originally written by Rossini for the cello. Pete detunes his guitar for the first few notes to try and capture the deeper mood created in the original composition. It's interesting to note that William Tell was a revolutionary against 14th Century Austrian oppression in states of the Swiss confederacy. This deep mood of the prelude, representing dawn over the forbidding mountains, could be seen to represent both a pastoral beauty and the oppressed atmosphere in which the Swiss were forced to live under Austrian dictatorship. The second movement is the 'Storm'. Up to four layers of acoustic guitars are used in this section by Lashley, all of which are playing their own distinct roles to capture the drama. The gentle bird call heard as the storm abates is sublime. Lashley plucks high pitch notes to emulate Rossini's original flute. The third movement, Ranz des Vaches (call to the dairy cows), originally featuring the English horn and flute, signifies daybreak ...

ROSSINI-RESPIGHI: La Boutique Fantasque/Leibowitz/Part-2 of "The Magic Toy Shop". Rare. Rene Leibowitz conducts The London Philharmonic Orchestra (1958) ------------------------ Rene Leibowitz (1913-1972) was born in Warsaw but moved to Paris in his teens and there began a long, illustrious conducting career. Particularly interested in contemporary music, he studied with Webern and Schoenberg and wrote a detailed analysis of twelve-tone music. A keen ear for instrumental coloration (Ravel was his orchestration teacher) was evident in his kaleidoscopic transcriptions of such works as Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C (for double orchestra!). But he is best known for his often highly personal renditions of many staples of the Classical and Romantic repertoire.

Gioachino Rossini - Mose in Egitto - "Involto in fiamma" (June And
Gioachino Rossini - Mose in Egitto - "Involto in fiamma" (June And Well, it seems we have progressively moved from cavatinas to terzets, so I decided to post a quartet from "Mose in Egitto" as the next piece. "Mose in Egitto" is one of Rossini's most exciting scores. It basically belongs to the genre of staged oratorio cultivated in Italy in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries for performance during Lent (Donizetti's "Il diluvio universale" follows the tradition). Essentially a three-act opera seria on a biblical subject, it tells the story of the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt under the leadership of Moses and includes three of the ten plagues suffered by the Egyptians because of Pharaoh's refusal to liberate the Israelites. But the center of the story is occupied by a love affair between the Pharaoh's son (Osiride) and an Israelite girl (Elcia); Osiride, not wishing to lose Elcia (who has become his wife), incites Pharaoh's obstinacy, which leads to Osiride's death (as part of the final plague, the slaying of the first-born). Much like "La donna del lago", the opera opens without an overture: three octave C's in the orchestra are followed by the plague of darkness. Each act centers on a long ensemble: the reaction to the return of light; the reaction to the discovery of the love between Elcia and Osiride (the presented piece), and the hymn of praise by the Israelites just before they cross through the Red Sea (the rightly famous "Dal tuo stellato soglio"). But the opera also features other superb pieces: a duet for Elcia ...
