The Barcarolle has also featured in many movies, including Life Is Beautiful.
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 ...

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 ...

Johann Strauss II. - Geschichten aus dem Wiener Wald (Walzer, op.325 Get mp3 at www.planet-vienna.com This is my personal favourite orchestral version of this terrific masterpiece. Played by Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Conductor: Robert Stolz (!) Robert Stolz himself is known as the last composer of the classical viennese aera. He was the one who knew best how a Strauss waltz has to be arranged and how the orchestra has to play it. That's why I adore this recording so much! It's 100% authentic and even the Vienna Philharmonics won't do it better. I had to shorten the track coz it was longer than 10 minutes. The intro has been removed. But never mind, the zither theme of the intro is played again at the end of the waltz. ___________________ Tales from the Vienna woods ウィーンの森の物語小约翰·施特劳斯योहान स्ट्रॉस दुसरा ヨハン・シュトラウス2世

Autumn in Norway ~ Jacques Offenbach ~ Barcarolle
Autumn in Norway ~ Jacques Offenbach ~ Barcarolle Filmed on location, surroundings Hol Kommune, Norway, on Sunday, October 17, 2010. It was a beautiful sunny day, the last "warm" day of the short autumn Norway knows. Winter followed very soon, within a week. Music: Jacques Offenbach. Title: Barcarolle Performers: unknown Jacques Offenbach (born Jacob Offenbach; 20 June 1819 -- 5 October 1880) was a German-born French composer and cellist of the Romantic era and one of the originators of the operetta form. Of German-Jewish ancestry, he was one of the most influential composers of popular music in Europe in the 19th century, and many of his works remain in the repertory. Barcarolle is the most famous part of the opera "The Tales of Hoffmann" Barcarolle (Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour), 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 also incorporated this excerpt from one of Offenbach's earlier, long-forgotten operas into the new opera. The Barcarolle has inspired the English composer Kaikhosru Shapurji Sorabji his Passeggiata veneziana sopra la Barcarola di Offenbach (1955--56). Moritz Moszkowski also wrote a virtuoso transcription of it. The Barcarolle has been incorporated into many films, including Life ...
Andor Földes plays Schumann "Aufschwung", op.12 no.2
Andor Földes plays Schumann "Aufschwung", op.12 no.2 Schumann's Fantasiestücke, op.12, are eight pieces for piano, written in 1837. Schumann titled the work inspired by the 1814 collection of novellas "Fantasiestücke in Callots Manier" by his favourite author, ETA Hoffmann (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, 1776 - 1822, German Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist; he is the subject and hero of Jacques Offenbach's famous opera "The Tales of Hoffmann"; the author of the novelette "The Nutcracker" and the Mouse King, on which the famous ballet The Nutcracker is based). Op.12 is dedicated to Fräulein Anna Robena Laidlaw (1819 - 1901), an accomplished and attractive 18-year old Scottish pianist with whom Schumann had carried on a brief flirtation. Schumann composed the pieces with the characters Florestan and Eusebius in mind, representing the duality of his personality. Eusebius depicts the dreamer in Schumann while Florestan represents his passionate side. These two characters parlay with one another throughout the collection. Schumann conceived of "Aufschwung" as a depiction of the character Florestan indulging in his desires. ~ "Biography / Obituary" from NY Times on February 19, 1992: Andor Foldes, a Hungarian-born American pianist who was closely associated with the music of Bela Bartok and who was also a respected interpreter of the Viennese Classical composers, died at his home in Herrliberg, Switzerland, on Feb. 9. He was 78 years old. He died after falling ...
