My Choice - Josef Strauss: Village Swallows from Austria
My Choice - Josef Strauss: Village Swallows from Austria (Dorfschwalben aus Österreich) Village Swallows from Austria a beautiful waltz by the Austrian composer, Josef Strauss (1827-1870). Plays the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Mro Carlos Kleiber. This is one of Josef Strauss famous and beautiful waltzes. We're showing swallows plus some scenery of Austria. He was born in Vienna, the son of Johann Strauss I and brother of Johann Strauss II and Eduard Strauss. His academic achievements at an early age do not point to his being a composer. His father thought he was best suited for a career in the Austrian Habsburg military, nevertheless, he studied music theory with Franz Dolleschal and learned to play the violin with Franz Anton. He was trained as an engineer, and worked for the city of Vienna as an engineer and designer. Josef Strauss wrote 283 opus numbers, many of which reveal a composer of remarkable talent. He wrote many waltzes, many of which are still in the classical repertoire, including Dorfschwalben aus Österreich (Village Swallows from Austria), the one we're featuring here. Carlos Kleiber (1930 -- 2004) was an Austrian classical conductor who spent most of his professional career in Germany. Kleiber was the son of the Austrian conductor Erich Kleiber and Ruth Goodrich, an American. In 1935, the Kleiber family emigrated to Buenos Aires. Karl's name became Carlos. As a youth, he had an English governess, grew up in English boarding schools in Argentina and later studied in New York and Zurich ...

Josef Hassid- Tchaikovsky -- Sourvenir d'un lieu cher Op. 42
Josef Hassid- Tchaikovsky -- Sourvenir d'un lieu cher Op. 42 My 8th and, perhaps, the last Hassid's so far... This video is wholeheartedly dedicated to my beloved friend who ends my days on high notes since being in his company. Josef Hassid- Tchaikovsky -- Sourvenir d'un lieu cher (Remembrance of a Beloved Place) Op. 42, No.3 Melodie. Gerald Moore (piano). Rec. 6/12/1940 Josef Hassid (Dec. 28, 1923 -- 1950) was a Polish violinisit. He was noted for his intense vibrato and temperament, causing Fritz Kreisler to say "A Heifetz violinist comes around every 100 years, a Hassid every 200." His great legacy to music is in the form of 9 recordings, recorded for HMV, among which Achron's Hebrew Melody is notable. Two of these recordings are the same piece; later recording was made after undergoing roughly a year under Carl Flesch's teachings. Sorry, I don't have that piece. For more inf.: www.violinist.com Many thanks to people whose pictures have been used to make videos. Tchaikovsky's sounds really sad, but I wanna see a happy ending tho. Enjoy! :)
