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

Frédéric Chopin - Prelude in E-Minor (op.28 no. 4) Frédéric Chopin-Prelude in E-Minor (op.28 no. 4) Played by: Aldona Dvarionaite Fryderyk Chopin (Polish: Fryderyk [Franciszek] Chopin, sometimes Szopen; French: Frédéric [François] Chopin;March 1, 1810 -- October 17, 1849) was a Polish virtuoso pianist and piano composer of the Romantic period. He is widely regarded as the greatest Polish composer, and one of the most influential composers for piano in the 19th century. Chopin was a genius of universal appeal. His music conquers the most diverse audiences. When the first notes of Chopin sound through the concert hall there is a happy sigh of recognition. All over the world men and women know his music. They love it. They are moved by it. Yet it is not "Romantic music" in the Byronic sense. It does not tell stories or paint pictures. It is expressive and personal, but still a pure art. Even in this abstract atomic age, where emotion is not fashionable, Chopin endures. His music is the universal language of human communication. When I play Chopin I know I speak directly to the hearts of people! Chopin's music for the piano combined a unique rhythmic sense (particularly his use of rubato), frequent use of chromaticism, and counterpoint. This mixture produces a particularly fragile sound in the melody and the harmony, which are nonetheless underpinned by solid and interesting harmonic techniques. He took the new salon genre of the nocturne, invented by Irish composer John Field, to a deeper level of sophistication. Three of ...
Meditation from "Thaïs" - Randy George, theremin For more video of this concert please visit: randygeorgemusic.com Live performance of Meditation from "Thaïs" by Jules Massenet. This was part of a concert at the Casino De Salamanca in Salamanca, Spain on December 8, 2008. Randy George, theremin Jose Enrique Serrano Comes, piano A very special thanks goes to Carmen Bachiller Martin and Jorge Sastre Martínez from Universidad Politécnica de Valencia AND Alejandro Martinez Estrada from Conservatorio Superior de Música de Salamanca for making this performance possible. Classical Theremin. Two words that should have always gone together. This is truly how the instrument was originally intended to be played. This kind of performance was made possible because of a fire that burned in a young woman named Clara Rockmore. She was the first person to prove that beautiful melodies could be extracted directly from the air. She continues to be a tremendous inspiration. By posting these videos, it is my wish to inspire others also, to open people's minds to possibilities that are completely out of sight, and to the help the theremin to a place where it can be truly respected again as it had been during the time of Ms. Rockmore. If this is your first time seeing and hearing a theremin, I congratulate you. You have just discovered the most fascinating musical instrument in the world. I've compiled some useful resources for learning more about it. Please visit the links section of my website. Please visit my home on the web ...
