Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube Waltz
Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube Waltz Title : Johann Strauss II , The Blue Danube Waltz Date : 1867 From Wikipedia,The Blue Danube is the common English title of An der schönen blauen Donau op. 314 (On the Beautiful Blue Danube), a waltz by Johann Strauss II, composed in 1867. Originally performed 9 February 1867 at a concert of the Wiener Männergesangsverein (Vienna Men's Choral Association), it has been one of the most consistently popular pieces of music in the classical repertoire. Its initial performance was only a mild success, however, and Strauss is reputed to have said "The devil take the waltz, my only regret is for the coda -- I wish that had been a success!" The waltz originally had an accompanying song text written by Josef Weyl. Strauss adapted it into a purely orchestral version for the World's Fair in Paris that same year, and it became a great success in this form. The instrumental version is by far the most commonly performed today. An alternate text by Franz von Gernerth, Donau so blau (Danube so blue), is also used on occasion. The sentimental Viennese connotations of the piece have made it into a sort of unofficial Austrian national anthem. It is a traditional encore piece at the annual Vienna New Year's Concert. The first few bars are also the interval signal of Osterreich Rundfunk's overseas programs. It is reported by composer Norman Lloyd in his "Golden Encyclopedia of Music" that when asked by Frau Strauss for an autograph, the composer Johannes Brahms autographed Mrs. Strauss's fan by writing on it the first few bars of the Blue Danube. Under it he wrote "Unfortunately not by Johannes Brahms".The work commences with an extended introduction in the key of A major with shimmering (tremolo) violins and a French horn spelling out the familiar waltz theme, answered by staccato wind chords, in a subdued mood. It rises briefly into a loud passage but quickly dies down into the same restful nature of the opening bars. A contrasting and quick phrase in D major anticipates the waltz before 3 quiet downward-moving bass notes "usher in" the first principal waltz melody. The first waltz theme is familiar gently rising triad motif in cellos and horns in the tonic D major, accompanied by harps; the Viennese waltz beat is accentuated at the end of each 3-note phrase. The Waltz 1A triumphantly ends its rounds of the motif, and waltz 1B follows in the same key; the genial mood is still apparent. Waltz 2A glides in quietly (still in D major) before a short contrasting middle section in B flat major. The entire section is repeated. A more dour waltz 3A is introduced in G major before a fleeting eighth-note melodic phrase (waltz 3B). An loud Intrada (introduction) is then played. Waltz 4A starts off in a romantic mood (F major) before a more joyous waltz 4B in the same key. After another short Intrada in A, cadencing in F-sharp minor, sonorous clarinets spell out the poignant melody of waltz 5A in A. Waltz 5B is the climax, punctuated by cymbal crashes. Each of these may be repeated at the discretion of the performer. The coda recalls earlier sections (3A and 2A) before furious chords usher in a recap of the romantic Waltz 4A. The idyll is cut short as the waltz hurries back to the famous waltz theme 1A again. This statement is cut short, however, by the final codetta: a variation of 1A is presented, connecting to a rushing eighth-note passage in the final few bars: repeated tonic chords underlined by a snare drumroll and a bright-sounding flourish.
Brahms Piano Quartet C Minor 3rd mvt Andante opus 60
Brahms Piano Quartet C Minor 3rd mvt Andante opus 60 One of Brahms' most beautiful slow movements, for string trio with piano. FAQ Q: Who is playing this piece? A: Sorry, I don't know. I licensed this recording from Keith Salmon, of Royalty Free Classical Music (dot org). Q: Who is this Brahms person? A: You can read about him here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahms Q: If it's a piano quartet, why do I hear violins? A: A piece of music for a solo instrument accompanied by a piano is most often called a sonata (violin sonata, flute sonata, etc.), but when a string trio (violin, viola, violoncello) is joined by a piano, it's called a piano quartet. A piece for four pianists is usually referred to as "eight-hand piano music." Go figure. Q: Something sounds wrong in the second beat of the measure that starts at 5:26. A: Yes; the violist plays a D-natural on the second beat; it should be a D-sharp. Q: This is really beautiful; what other pieces are like this? A: I don't know of another piece that's this beautiful in quite this way, but the other piano trios, quartets and quintets of Schubert, Schumann and Brahms are really good, so that's a good place to start. Q: Is there a way I could make the bar-graph scores myself? A: The Music Animation Machine MIDI file player will generate this display; you can get the (Windows) software here: http://www.musanim.com/player/ There are lots of places on the web where you can get MIDI files; I usually go to the Classical Archives site first: http://www.classicalarchives.com/ Q: Could you do a MAM video of _________? A: Please read this: http://www.musanim.com/all/MAMRequests.html Q: Can I get a DVD with videos like this? A: Yes: http://www.musanim.com/mam/video.html Q: What do the colors in the bar-graph score mean? A: The colors indicate: violin, viola, violoncello, piano top staff, piano bottom staff. Q: Why do the scores move at different speeds? A: The bar-graph score is graphical, and in it, time translates exactly into horizontal position; conventional notation is symbolic, so there is usually one symbol per note, regardless of whether it's a long or a short note, and the symbols are more or less evenly spaced (for legibility); so, when the notes are faster, the notation needs to move faster to keep up. Q: Why am I crying? A: I don't know, but the first time I heard this piece in a concert, I cried too. I also cried the first time I read through it with string players. Something about it. .
Igor Stravinsky - "Preludium For Jazz Band"
Igor Stravinsky - "Preludium For Jazz Band" Something of an oddity in the composer's cannon, the Preludium was written between 1936-37 and, aside from the "Ebony Concerto", is the only piece Stravinsky wrote for a band. At this point he had abandoned most of the Russian folk influence that garnishes his earliest period, and eschewed orchestras in favour of smaller ensembles (usually wind). With his penchant for off-beat rhythms and lyricism, it's easy to see why Stravinsky may have been drawn to jazz. Django Reindhardt had popularized Gypsy Jazz only a few years before. Nontheless, this composition is entirely in Stravinsky's own style. The portrait, of course, is courteosy of the hand of Pablo Picasso.
Canon in D (Classical guitar) by Johann Pachelbel
Canon in D (Classical guitar) by Johann Pachelbel I have released my 3rd CD called "AIR". I play music by: Dowland, Galilei, Weiss, Bach, Handel, Albinoni and Pachelbel. This is also on it! You can order it from my website per-olovkindgren.com and soon also listen to sound samples there. ____________________________ Hi there! I made this arrangement this weekend. Actually I was starting on an arrangement for Beatles "The Fool on the Hill" but ended up with this. Don't ask me how. This is not exactly a "canon". It's more a Passacaglia. The "vamp" DA Bm F#m GDG A. is repeated all the time with variations. I hope you like my version. Sheet music and TAB's can be purchased and downloaded at www.per-olovkindgren.com Thanks to Marie for listening to me and making brilliant suggestions. You are my inspiration always! Kiss to you and hugs to all others :-) Pelle
Frederic Chopin - "Regentropfen" Prelude Op 23 No. 15 (medium)
Frederic Chopin - "Regentropfen" Prelude Op 23 No. 15 (medium) Chopin is the only classical (romantic to be exact) composer whose work I unconditionally adore. While playing this particular Prelude, I just feel like I'm exploring the deepest emotional layers of a completely desperate and devestated being which finally finds some piece in the end. From what I heard, the constant "drops" of g# are actually not meant to resemble raindrops, but Chopin's beating heart, while he is waiting for his family to come home during a heavy storm while on a holiday on Mallorca. Again this is just what I heard and what makes the most sense to me. I never listened to recordings of this prelude. This is my unprejudiced version of this piece. MP3-Download: www.rapidshare.com or www.mediafire.com The music sheets can be downloaded here: www.rapidshare.com or www.mediafire.com Enjoy. Music composed by Frederic Chopin

Fantasía - Pasillo
Fantasía - Pasillo This piece was originally written by composer Polibio Mayorga for piano in the classical style of ecuadorean Pasillo in triple time signature. This type of music originated in colonial Ecuador in the 1800's and is a fusion of the european Saravande which is a dance in triple meter and ecuadorean music such as the Yaraví. The Yaraví in Ecuador is unique from other andean regions in that it follows a 6/8 time signature and accentuates the 1st, 3rd, and 4th beats of each measure. Having said that, you will find that pasillos are played in all kinds of tempos from andante to allegro. I plan to record this piece accompanied by guitar in the near future.
