Robortom feat. Au Revoir Simone - 'Paganini Rocks'
Robortom feat. Au Revoir Simone - 'Paganini Rocks' In a move set to infuriate Middle England and send Classic FM's phonelines into meltdown, Rob da Bank, Tom Middleton, and Au Revoir Simone have reworked Paganini's '24th Caprice' into 'Paganini Rocks' - a club anthem 200 years in the making. iTunes: itunes.apple.com Video directed by Graham Baclagon: kokakolapop.com In the eyes of most classical music buffs mixing classical and dance music is about the most sacrilegious thing you can do. But while Robortom's 'Paganini Rocks' will undoubtedly rankle the classical world, it's the latest in a long line of reinterpretations of Paganini's original composition. Since 1819, his '24th Caprice' has been reworked by a long and illustrious list of composers from Chopin, Liszt, and Schumann, to Rachmaninoff and Lloyd- Webber. It was also used as the theme tune for the South Bank Show. In 2009, it was the turn of British composer, Tom Hodge (featured in recent ad campaigns for Audi and Guiness). Hodge's interpretation caught the ears of Rob and Tom, who enlisted the vocal talents of Au Revoir Simone to complete their own version. 'Paganini Rocks' is the title music to the 2010 Orange RockCorps show, and is set to appear in CSI New York in October, making Paganini's theme one of the most 'synced' pieces of all time. Rob da Bank is Radio 1's leftfield extraordinaire (with 2 shows), daddy to the UK's finest festival, Bestival and its younger upstart, Camp Bestival, and one half of Lazyboy (with Mr Dan).

Beethoven, Symphony 7/1 A major Op 92, Christian Thielemann, Vienna
Beethoven, Symphony 7/1 A major Op 92, Christian Thielemann, Vienna 01 Poco sostenuto -- Vivace, Beethoven, Symphony 7/1 A major Op 92, Christian Thielemann, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92, in 1811, was the seventh of his nine symphonies. He worked on it while staying in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice in the hope of improving his health. It was completed in 1812, and was dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries. At its debut, Beethoven was noted as remarking that it was one of his best works. The second movement Allegretto was the most popular movement and had to be encored. The instant popularity of the Allegretto resulted in its frequent performance separate from the complete symphony. The work was premiered in Vienna on 8 December 1813 at a charity concert for soldiers wounded in the Battle of Hanau, with Beethoven himself conducting and double featured with the patriotic Wellington's Victory. The orchestra was led by Beethoven's friend, Ignaz Schuppanzigh, and included some of the finest musicians of the day: violinist Louis Spohr. Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Antonio Salieri, Anton Romberg, and the Italian double bass virtuoso, Domenico Dragonetti, whom Beethoven himself described as playing "with great fire and expressive power". It is also said that the Italian guitar virtuoso Mauro Giuliani played cello at the premiere. The piece was very well received, and the second movement, the allegretto, had to be encored immediately. Spohr made particular mention of ...

Barcarolle (Offenbach, Contes d'Hoffmann) multitrack by Trudbol, da
Barcarolle (Offenbach, Contes d'Hoffmann) multitrack by Trudbol, da ► Facebook: www.facebook.com ► Twitter: twitter.com Jacques Offenbach's "Barcarolle" from his opera 'Les Contes d'Hoffmann' (The Tales of Hoffmann), performed by: - Andy Costello (piano): www.youtube.com - Danny Fong (tenor 1 / tenor 3): www.youtube.com - Julien Neel (tenor 2 / bass 1 / bass 2) A barcarole (from French, also barcarolle; originally, Italian barcarola, from barca 'boat') is a folk song sung by Venetian gondoliers, or a piece of music composed in that style. In classical music, two of the most famous barcaroles are those by Jacques Offenbach, from his opera The Tales of Hoffmann and Frederic Chopin's Barcarole in F sharp major for solo piano. A barcarole is characterized by a rhythm reminiscent of the gondolier's stroke, almost invariably a moderate tempo 6/8 meter. The Tales of Hoffmann (Les contes d'Hoffmann) is an opera by Jacques Offenbach. The French libretto was written by Jules Barbier, based on short stories by ETA Hoffmann, who is the main protagonist in the opera (as he is in the stories). The most famous number in the opera is the "Barcarolle" (Belle nuit, O nuit d'amour), which is performed in act 2. Curiously, the aria was not written by Offenbach with Les contes d'Hoffmann in mind. He wrote it as the 'Elves' Song' in the opera Die Rheinnixen (Les fées du Rhin), which premiered in Vienna on February 8, 1864. Offenbach died with Les contes d'Hoffmann unfinished. Ernest Guiraud completed the scoring and wrote the recitatives for the premiere. He ...

F. Mendelssohn (1829) "Fingal's Cave" (Die Hebriden Op.26) BOSTON
F. Mendelssohn (1829) "Fingal's Cave" (Die Hebriden Op.26) BOSTON THANK GOD FOR WARNER BROTHERS CARTOONS. THAT IS WHERE I FIRST HEARD THIS PIECE AS A CHILD!!!!-:) Fingal's Cave is a sea cave on the uninhabited island of Staffa, in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, part of a National Nature Reserve owned by the National Trust for Scotland. It is formed entirely from hexagonally jointed basalt columns, similar in structure to (and part of the same ancient lava flow as) the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and those of nearby Ulva. In both cases, the cooling surface of the mass of hot lava cracked in a hexagonal pattern in a similar way to drying mud cracking as it shrinks, and these cracks gradually extended down into the mass of lava as it cooled and shrank to form the columns, which were subsequently exposed by erosion. The cave was brought to the attention of the English-speaking world by 18th-century naturalist Sir Joseph Banks in 1772.It became known as Fingal's Cave after the eponymous hero of an epic poem by 18th-century Scots poet-historian James Macpherson. Romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy visited in 1829 and wrote Die Hebriden (in English, Hebrides Overture Opus 26, commonly known as Fingal's Cave overture), inspired by the weird echoes in the cave. Mendelssohn's overture popularized the cave as a tourist destination. Other famous 19th-century visitors included author Jules Verne; poets William Wordsworth, John Keats, and Alfred, Lord Tennyson; and Romantic artist JMW Turner, who painted "Staffa, Fingal's Cave" in ...
Fantasía galaica - Juan Durán - Live 2010 - José Manuel Dapena, g
Fantasía galaica - Juan Durán - Live 2010 - José Manuel Dapena, g www.manueldapena.com Xacobeo 2010 Juan Durán (1960 - ) Fantasía galaica Op. 79 * Alborada Muiñeira Canto de berce Foliada Alalá Pandeirada http * World premiere by José Manuel Dapena Bangkok Guitar Festival 2008 --------- NOTES on Fantasía Galaica Op. 79 - Guitar With unequivocal brevity, the Fantasía Galaica Op. 79 is a compact musical suite that incorporates motifs drawn from Galician popular folklore taken from famous popular song books, such as Casto Sampedro's or Bal y Gay's. A derivative formula of these folkloric themes serves the composer both to develop and vary pre-existing motifs and to provide this instrument with a traditional, definitive work of Galician roots. Fantasía Galaica includes six dances that are performed successively, without interruption. The suite opens with the introductory Alborada, followed by a Muiñeira, a dance that shares a moderate 6/8 tempo similar to the Catalan Sardana. The third piece is a lullaby with a characteristic, intimate binary rhythm that evokes an atmosphere of serenity. As with the Siete Canciones Populares Españolas by Manuel de Falla, the author combines the dances to create the effect of contrast and variety. The fourth dance, as in Falla's aforementioned work, is a Foliada, which is similar to a Galician Jota. Like in other type of Spanish jotas (Aragonese, Castilian, etc.) it is a lively piece, which conveys a dancer's leaps. The two final pieces are more firmly rooted in the most ancient culture of the Galician ...
Tchaikovsky- Polonaise , from ' Eugene Onegin '
Tchaikovsky- Polonaise , from ' Eugene Onegin ' Title : Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Polonaise, from 'Eugene Onegin' From Wikipedia ,Eugene Onegin (Russian: Евгений Онегин, Yevgény Onégin is an opera ("lyrical scenes"), Opus 24, in 3 acts, 7 scenes, by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. The libretto was written by Konstantin Shilovsky and the (brother of the) composer, and is based on the novel in verse by Aleksandr Pushkin. The opera was first performed in Moscow in 1879. Eugene Onegin is a well-known example of lyric opera; the libretto very closely follows Pushkin's original, retaining much of his poetry, to which Tchaikovsky adds music of a dramatic nature. The story concerns a selfish hero who lives to regret his blasé rejection of a young woman's love and his careless incitement of a fatal duel with his best friend. There are several recordings of it, and it is regularly performed. The work's title refers to the eponymous protagonist. In May 1877, the opera singer Lavrovskaya recommended creating an opera based on the plot of Eugene Onegin to Tchaikovsky. At first this idea seemed wild to the composer, according to his memoirs, however he was soon growing excited about the idea and created the scenarios in one night before starting the composition of the music. Tchaikovsky used the original verses from Pushkin's novel and chose scenes that involved the emotional world and fortunes of his heroes, calling the opera "lyrical scenes." The opera is episodic; there is no continuous story, just selected highlights of Onegin's life. Since ...
Gioachino Rossini - L'italiana in Algeri - Ouverture (Marriner)
Gioachino Rossini - L'italiana in Algeri - Ouverture (Marriner) The year 1813 proved a productive one for Rossini, with several important works: "Il signor ", "Tancredi", "Aureliano in Palmira"... In between came an opera that nearly didn't happen. Carlo Coccia, who had accepted a commission to compose an opera for the Teatro San Benedetto in Venice, apparently ran into difficulty in completing his assignment. Rossini accepted the offer from the theater's impresario and wrote "L'italiana in Algeri" in less than a month. Given the tight schedule, the composer turned to a libretto already in existence, one by Angelo Anelli, already set by Luigi Mosca (Meyerbeer1's channel includes a version of the duet between Isabella and Taddeo by Mosca, do check it out). Although Rossini was likely familiar with Mosca's opera, significant additions and changes were made to the libretto. The 21-year-old composer elected to go for broke with the effects of his ensemble writing. The opera was premiered on May 22, 1813, to applause that, according to one critic, "thundered without pause". "L'italiana" was the first of several important Rossini comic operas to hold prominent roles for lower female voices, the third, to be precise. The protagonist is a determined Italian lady, sung by contralto, who travels to Algiers to search for her lover, Lindoro, kidnapped and held as a slave by Mustafa, the Bey of Algiers. Isabella's wit and charm prove too much for Mustafa and his retinue, and she is able to escape with Lindoro at the end, leaving the Bey fuming ...
