Larghetto Friedrich Gulda - Piano & Conducting Galina Ulanova - Ballet Munich Philharmonic Orchestra Yuri Kondratov - Ballet (Etude) Vladimir Preobrazhensky - Ballet (Les sylphides) Paintings - Claude Monet Friedrich Gulda (1930 2000), was Austrian pianist and the son of a teacher. He began learning to play the piano from Felix Pazofsky at the age of 7; in 1942, he entered the Vienna Music Academy, where he studied piano and musical theory under Bruno Seidlhofer and Joseph Marx. After winning first prize at the International Competition in Geneva four years later, in 1946, he began going on concert tours throughout the world. Together with Jörg Demus and Paul Badura-Skoda, Gulda formed what became known as the "Viennese troika". Although most famous for his Beethoven interpretations, Friedrich Gulda also performed the music of JS Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Chopin, Debussy and Ravel. From the 1950's on he cultivated an interest in jazz, writing several songs and instrumental pieces himself and combining jazz and classical music in his concerts at times. Gulda wrote a Prelude and Fugue with a theme suggesting swing. Keith Emerson performed it on Emerson, Lake & Palmer's The Return of the Manticore. In addition, Gulda composed Variations on The Doors' Light My Fire. Another version can be found on As You Like It (1970), an album with standards such as 'Round Midnight and What Is This Thing Called Love. In 1982, Gulda teamed up with ...
Friedrich Kuhlau: Sonata in A Major
Friedrich Kuhlau: Sonata in A Major Megan Vamos closes out the April 24, 2008 Strathroy United Church service by performing Friedrich Kuhlau's Sonata in A Major on the Boston grand piano. Friedrich Daniel Rudolf Kuhlau (September 11, 1786 -- March 12, 1832) was a German-Danish composer during the Classical and Romantic periods. Born in Germany, after losing his right eye in a street accident at the age of seven, he studied piano in Hamburg. His father, grandfather, and uncle were military oboists. Even though Kuhlau was born to a poor family, his parents managed to pay for pianoforte lessons. In 1810, he fled to Copenhagen to avoid conscription in the Napoleonic Army, which overwhelmed the many small principalities and duchies of northern Germany, and in 1813 he became a Danish citizen. Outside of several lengthy trips which he took, he resided there until his death. During his lifetime, he was known primarily as a concert pianist and composer of Danish opera, but was responsible for introducing many of Beethoven's works, which he greatly admired, to Copenhagen audiences. Considering that his house burned down destroying all of his unpublished manuscripts, he was a prolific composer leaving more than 200 published works in most genres. Beethoven, whom Kuhlau knew personally, exerted the greatest influence upon his music. Interestingly, few of Beethoven's contemporaries showed greater understanding or ability to assimilate what he was doing than Kuhlau. Certainly with regard to form, Kuhlau was clearly able ...

Andreas Scholl (born November 10, 1967) is a German countertenor, a male classical singer in the alto vocal range. He specialises in Baroque music. His range is the same as that of the celebrated 18th century alto castrato, Senesino, for whom Handel wrote his greatest alto roles. Fanfare Magazine says: "There are more excellent countertenors before the public today than ever before, but one stands out above all others, as Caruso among tenors a century ago: Andreas Scholl".

Gustav Mahler - "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" (Rückert) -
Gustav Mahler - "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" (Rückert) - During the summers of 1901 and 1902, Gustav Mahler set to music five poems by the German Romantic poet Friedrich Rückert. The third of these, "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen", portrays a world-weary artist who exists in our everyday world, but who actually lives his life in another, more ethereal plane reserved for great artists. Mahler, much maligned as composer during his lifetime, identified strongly with the poem, saying that it expressed his very self. In fact, he felt so strongly about this song that he reused much of the music in the famous Adagietto of his Fifth Symphony, which he composed during the summer of 1902. The orchestral song begins with a mournful melody played by solo English horn. This melody is then restated and extended by the singer during the first stanza, which speaks of the artists isolation in a world that already thinks him dead. The tempo increases slightly for the second stanza, during which the artist reflects that he does not really care what the world thinks. The third stanza is remarkably peaceful as the artist describes the other world in which he resides: I live alone in my heaven, in my love, in my song. The gentle consonant-dissonant alternation of the violins and English horn in the coda seems to portray the artist staring beyond the horizon into his musical paradise. Many consider "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen", as Mahlers greatest song, one of his most profound and moving works and was of immense personal significance ...
Die Moldau - Bedřich Smetana von Ferenc Fricsay
Die Moldau - Bedřich Smetana von Ferenc Fricsay Ferenc Fricsay - Probe und Aufführung der sinfonischen Dichtung "Die Moldau" von Friedrich Smetana. Sinfonie-Orchester des Süddeutschen Rundfunks. Deutsche Grammophon (LPEM 19 471) Die Komposition schildert den Lauf der Moldau, angefangen bei den beiden kleinen Quellen, der kühlen und der warmen Moldau, über die Vereinigung der beiden Bächlein zu einem Fluss, den Lauf der Moldau durch Wälder und Fluren, durch Landschaften, wo gerade eine Bauernhochzeit gefeiert wird, beim nächtlichen Mondschein tanzen die Nymphen ihren Reigen. Auf den nahen Felsen ragen stolze Burgen, Schlösser und Ruinen empor. Die Moldau wirbelt in den Johannisstromschnellen; im breiten Zug fließt sie weiter gegen Prag, am Vyšehrad vorbei, und in majestätischem Lauf entschwindet sie in der Ferne schließlich in der Elbe.
