Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake www.encognitive.com Swan Lake (Russian Лебединое Озеро, Lebedinoye Ozero) is a ballet, first presented in four acts, Opus 20, by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. The scenario was worked out by Vladimir Begichev and Vasiliy Geltser, fashioned from Russican folk tales[1] and an ancient German legend, which tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The choreographer of the original production was Julius Reisinger to the music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (opus 20), composed 1875-1876. The ballet received its premiere on February 27, 1877 at the Bolshoy Theatre in Moscow as The Lake of the Swans. Although it is presented in many different versions, most ballet companies base their stagings both choreographically and musically on the 1895 revival of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, first staged for the Imperial Ballet on January 15, 1895 at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. For this revival, Tchaikovsky's score was revised by the St. Petersburg Imperial Theatre's chief conductor and composer Riccardo Drigo. en.wikipedia.org

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker, Russian
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker, Russian www.encognitive.com The Nutcracker (Russian Щелкунчик, Shchelkunchik) Op. 71, is a fairy tale-ballet in two acts, three scenes, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composed in 1891--92. Alexandre Dumas père's adaptation of the story by ETA Hoffmann was set to music by Tchaikovsky (written by Marius Petipa and commissioned by the director of the Imperial Theatres Ivan Vsevolozhsky in 1891). In Western countries, this ballet has become perhaps the most popular ballet performed, primarily around Christmas time. The composer made a selection of eight of the more popular numbers from the ballet before the ballet's December 1892 premiere, forming The Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a, intended for concert performance. The suite was first performed, under the composer's direction, on 19 March 1892 at an assembly of the St. Petersburg branch of the Musical Society[1]. The suite became instantly popular; the complete ballet did not achieve its great popularity until around the mid-1960s. Among other things, the score of The Nutcracker is noted for its use of the celesta, an instrument that the composer had already employed in his much lesser known symphonic poem The Voyevoda (premiered 1891).^ Although well-known in The Nutcracker as the featured solo instrument in the "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from Act II, it is employed elsewhere in the same act. en.wikipedia.org

The overture debuted in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow on August 20, 1882 in the Gregorian or NS calendar (the date in the Julian or OS calendar was August 8). The overture is best known for its climactic volley of cannon fire and ringing chimes. On his 1891 visit to the United States, Tchaikovsky conducted the piece at the dedication of Carnegie Hall in New York City. While this piece has little connection with United States history besides the War of 1812 diverting the British, freeing Napoleon to attack Russia, it is often a staple at Fourth of July celebrations, such as the annual show by the Boston Pops and at Washington DC's annual program called A Capitol Fourth. Instrumentation The 1812 Overture is scored for an orchestra comprising the following: * brass band * woodwind: piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets in B♭, 2 bassoons ...

Lacul lebedelor este un balet de Piotr Ilici Ceaikovski (opus 20). en.wikipedia.org Libretul baletului (în 4 acte) a fost scris de către Vladimir Berghicev şi V. Ghelzer, având ca sursă de inspiraţie o veche legendă rusă (după alţii, o legendă germană, dacă judecăm după numele personajelor principale: Siegfried, Odette - Odillia, Rotbart ş.a.) şi a corespuns pretenţiiilor compozitorului rus. Între timp, textul a fost de mai multe ori transcris şi modificat, astfel că unele versiuni au un final diferit de original. Legenda despre prinţese fermecate în lebede de un vrăjitor rău, în care vraja lui poate fi spulberată numai prin iubirea unui prinţ, se poate întâlni în basmele mai multor popoare. ro.wikipedia.org Swan Lake (Russian: Лебединое Озеро, Lebedínoye Ózero) is a ballet, op. 20, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composed 18751876.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker Suite: Dance of the Sugar
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - The Nutcracker Suite: Dance of the Sugar Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840 -- November 6, 1893) was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. His wide ranging output includes symphonies, operas, ballets, instrumental and chamber music and songs. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, the 1812 Overture, his First Piano Concerto, his last three numbered symphonies, and the opera Eugene Onegin. The Nutcracker is one of the composer's most popular compositions. The music belongs to the Romantic Period and contains some of his most memorable melodies, several of which are frequently used in television and film. The Trepak, or Russian dance, is one of the most recognizable pieces in the ballet, along with the famous Waltz of the Flowers and March, as well as the ubiquitous Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. The ballet contains surprisingly advanced harmonies and a wealth of melodic invention that is (to many) unsurpassed in ballet music. Tchaikovsky made a selection of eight of the numbers from the ballet before the ballet's December 1892 premiere, forming The Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a, intended for concert performance. The suite was first performed, under the composer's direction, on 19 March 1892 at an assembly of the St. Petersburg branch of the Musical Society. The Nutcracker Suite should not be mistaken for the complete ballet. The outline below represents the selection and sequence of the ...
Victor Borge (Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Frederic Chopin, Johannes Brahms, F
Victor Borge (Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Frederic Chopin, Johannes Brahms, F Victor Borge is an enigma for me. Though many would consider him to be simply a clown, albeit a clown spoofing classical music, some of his work is, to say the least, strikingly acute and tantalizingly interesting. The present piece is proof of this. The variations form is well-known and appears in virtually any classical music period. It would seem almost impossible to do anything new with the form but Borge proves us wrong by adopting a very unusual approach. He chooses a painstakingly well-known theme, here - "Happy birthday to you", and sets about to create variations to it. But it is only the top of the iceberg: each variation is, effectually, the way a certain composer would write the theme itself. All in all, there are eleven variations of very different composers: we start by passing through Bach and Mozart and finish with Irving and some modern composer whose name I do not know (and Borge's hilarious pronunciation does not help :P). Some of these variations are preceded by a snatch on the composer's original work from which Borge then proceeds to develop the variation. Moreover, some of his variations are rather charming (Brahms or Bach (in spite of a ridiculously humorous long descending line repeated two times)) or even, dare I say it, moving (Beethoven, in spite of some goofing on Borge's part, gets one of the better treatments). I've marked the movements in the video itself but you can also check the title which includes all composers presented in the order ...

Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky - Romeo & Juliet Love Theme
Pyotr Ilich Tchaikovsky - Romeo & Juliet Love Theme Piotr Ilich Chaikovski (en ruso Пётр Ильи́ч Чайко́вский) (Nótese que su patronímico - hijo de Iliá - se pronuncia ilích y no ílich); Vótkinsk, 7 de mayo de 1840 - San Petersburgo, 6 de noviembre de 1893 es uno de los compositores rusos más importantes del siglo XIX. A veces se puede encontrar su nombre transcrito del alfabeto cirílico en versiones similares a la francesa e inglesa (Tchaikovsky) o alemana (Tschaikowski). Biografía Según el calendario gregoriano nació el 7 de mayo de 1840 (en la ciudad rusa de Vótkinsk, centro minero e industrial al este de Moscú, cerca de los montes Urales), en el seno de una familia de origen ucraniano. Según el calendario juliano (que en esa época se seguía empleando en Rusia), nació el 25 de abril. Su padre, Iliá Petróvich, ingeniero minero, trabajaba allí a cargo de una importante mina. También residieron varios años en Alapáevsk. La familia vivía al estilo de los grandes terratenientes de la época, tenía una casa imponente y un gran personal a su servicio. Las fuentes rusas mencionan que incluso tuvo bajo sus órdenes una compañía de cien cosacos. Iliá Petróvich casó en segundas nupcias con Aleksandra Adréyevna d'Assier, una aristócrata de origen francés, bella y refinada. De esta unión nacieron seis hijos, de los que Piotr Ilich fue el segundo. Otras fuentes indican que Chaikovski tuvo cuatro hermanos: Modest, Ippolit, Aleksandra y Anatoli. En sus primeros años tuvo como institutriz a Fanny Dürbach, de origen suizo. Inicialmente esta ...
