Squire "Tarantella" . Georg Mertens from CD "Cello Solos" To download from iTunes click: itunes.apple.com To download from Amazon click: www.amazon.com Physical CD: www.georgcello.com Arranged for cello solo and performed by Georg Mertens on 21 June 2008 at Jenolan Caves Australia. The story of the Tarantella goes back to the bite of the Tarantula spider of the Mediterranean. When you have been bitten, you have to dance the Tarantella - otherwise you might die! In part A the spider approaches with all the drama. In part B everything seems pleasant and alright again. At the return of part A the poison sets in and the speed gets faster up to a frenzy. At the end chords the poor bitten victim collapses into the healing coma due to having danced the Tarantella - the cellist is released. As for interpretation, according to the story, the piece starts rather in a moderate speed getting faster and faster in the da capo of part A.

Joshua Bell Stop and Hear the Music by the Washington Post
Joshua Bell Stop and Hear the Music by the Washington Post From the Washington Post: Pearls Before Breakfast Can one of the nation's great musicians cut through the fog of a D.C. rush hour? Let's find out. By Gene Weingarten Washington Post Staff Writer Sunday, April 8, 2007; Page W10 HE EMERGED FROM THE METRO AT THE L'ENFANT PLAZA STATION AND POSITIONED HIMSELF AGAINST A WALL BESIDE A TRASH BASKET. By most measures, he was nondescript: a youngish white man in jeans, a long-sleeved T-shirt and a Washington Nationals baseball cap. From a small case, he removed a violin. Placing the open case at his feet, he shrewdly threw in a few dollars and pocket change as seed money, swiveled it to face pedestrian traffic, and began to play. It was 7:51 a.m. on Friday, January 12, the middle of the morning rush hour. In the next 43 minutes, as the violinist performed six classical pieces, 1,097 people passed by. Almost all of them were on the way to work, which meant, for almost all of them, a government job. L'Enfant Plaza is at the nucleus of federal Washington, and these were mostly mid-level bureaucrats with those indeterminate, oddly fungible titles: policy analyst, project manager, budget officer, specialist, facilitator, consultant. ...for the rest of the article go to: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/04/04/AR2007040401721.html
Chopin - Étude Op. 10 No. 12 in C minor "Revolutionary"
Chopin - Étude Op. 10 No. 12 in C minor "Revolutionary" Étude Op. 10, No. 12 in C minor known as The Revolutionary Étude, is a solo piano work by Frédéric Chopin written circa 1831. It is the 12th of his first set of etudes - "Douze Grandes Etudes" dedicated to "son ami Franz Liszt" (his friend Franz Liszt). The two sets of Études, Opus 10 and 25, are known collectively as the Chopin Études, although Chopin also contributed three other lesser known études (the Trois Nouvelles Études). History The étude appeared around the same time as the November Uprising in 1831. Chopin was unable to have a strong participating role because of his poor health, and allegedly he poured his emotions on the matter into many pieces that he composed at that time - the Revolutionary Étude standing out as the most notable example. Upon conclusion of Poland's failed revolution against Russia, he cried "All this has caused me much pain. Who could have foreseen it!" Unlike études of prior periods (works designed to emphasize and develop particular aspects of musical technique, cf the much feared but essential School of Velocity, or the Five Finger Exercises by Hanon) the romantic études of composers such as Chopin and Liszt are fully developed musical concert pieces, but still continue to represent a goal of developing stronger technique Technique In the case of The Revolutionary Étude, the technique required in the opening bars is playing an extremely fast, long and loud descending harmonic minor scale mainly in the left hand. The length and the ...
