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 ...
"Ondine" by Maurice Ravel.
"Ondine" by Maurice Ravel. Cheryl Shantz performs her best loved piano piece "Ondine." This is the 1st Movement of "Gaspard de la Nuit" (treasurer of the night) which was composed by Maurice Ravel in 1908 and based on three poems by the French poet Aloysius Bertrand (1807-1841). It consists of three movements which are "Ondine," "Le Gibet," and "Scarbo." "Ondine" is a dreamy tale of a water nymph or fairy who seduces her male listener in order to entice and draw him down to her kingdom deep at the bottom of the lake in the elemental triangle of fire, earth, and air. According to some legends, Ondine cannot gain a soul unless she marries a man and has his child. The piano music creates the mood of water tinkling in a stream, woven with cascades. Below is a translation of Aloysius Bertrands poem "Ondine." Ondine "...I believed I heard; a dim harmony charming my sleep. And close by me spread a similar murmur of uninterrupted songs from a sad and tender voice" "Listen! Listen! It is me, Ondine, spirit of the water, brushing with these drops of water the resonant diamond panes of your window lighted by the gloomy rays of the moon; and here in a silk dress, is the lady of the manor, gazing from her balcony at the beautiful starry night and the lovely sleeping lake." "Each wave is a water sprite who swims in the current; each current is a path, winding toward my palace, and my palace is fluidly built, at the bottom of the lake, in the triangle formed by fire, earth, and air." "Listen! Listen! My father is ...
Offenbach - Barcarolle , from 'The Tales of Hoffmann'
Offenbach - Barcarolle , from 'The Tales of Hoffmann' Title : Jacques Offenbach , Barcarolle , from 'The Tales of Hoffmann' From Wikipedia , Les contes d'Hoffmann (in English: The Tales of Hoffmann) is an opera by Jacques Offenbach. It was first performed in Paris, at the Opéra-Comique, on February 10, 1881. The libretto was written by Jules Barbier, based on three short stories by ETA Hoffmann. ETA Hoffmann himself is a character in the opera just as he often is in his stories. The stories upon which the opera is based are Der Sandmann,Rath Krespel, and Das verlorene Spiegelbild. The opera contains a prologue, three acts and an epilogue. Offenbach did not live to see his opera performed, since he died on October 5, 1880, just over four months before its premiere. Before his death, Offenbach had completed the piano score and orchestrated the prologue and the first act. Since he did not entirely finish the writing, many different versions of this opera emerged, some bearing little resemblance to the original work. The version performed at the opera's premiere was that by Ernest Guiraud, who completed Offenbach's scoring and wrote the recitatives. The Barcarolle The most famous aria from the opera is the "Barcarolle" (Belle nuit, ô 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 a ghost-song in the opera Les fées du Rhin (which premiered in Vienna on February 8, 1864 as Die Rheinnixen). Offenbach died with Les contes d'Hoffmann ...

Richard Wagner - Götterdämmerung - Der Ring des Nibelungen - act 1 "Vorspiel - Welch Licht Leuchtet"/"Treu Beratner Verträge Runen". "Götterdämmerung" (The Twilight of the Gods), fourth and last of the four operas of "Der Ring des Nibelungen" (The Ring of the Nibelung). Music and text by Richard Wagner (1813-1883). Conductor: Georg Solti & Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Wagner's essential peculiarity is the representation of the drama as an element of introspection; his operas can't be considered operas in the traditional meaning of the word, but great compositions where music, singing, poetry and psychology merge to interpret the life. In Wagner's conception the drama expect an almost religious attention, which the public has to attend to as the story takes place in his mind; so the drama rises magically from the imagination of the public before being in music. The music of the Cycle is composed by a mosaic of leading motifs, the leitmotiv, which embode characters or feelings, so their continuos reappearing produces a sort of psychological premonition. No closed-form pieces or arias interfer with the free flow of the narration which goes on without solution of continuity from the beginning to the end of every act, subjecting the singing to the comment of an orchestra enormous for the number of instruments and resonant wideness. It is also important in Wagner the use of chromatism, that incessant wave of chromatic spirals which is took to extremes till it leave the tonal structure. The characters of these operas are taken from the old ...
