Gabriel Fauré: "Les berceaux" (Cradles), Op. 23, No. 1 Souzay
Gabriel Fauré: "Les berceaux" (Cradles), Op. 23, No. 1 Souzay Gabriel Faurés "Les berceaux," Op. 23/1 (1879), a setting of a poem by Sully-Prudhomme, uses a flowing melodic line in the vocal part and a characteristic accompaniment in the piano to evoke the movement of both ships and of cradles (berceaux), linking the two together in motion and emotion. The poem describes large ships rocked by the water and cradles rocked by women: "But the day of farewells will come, because women must weep, and curious men must dare the lure of the horizon." But though ships carry men away from their cradles, the ships sense, and are momentarily held back by, the soul of the cradles. The song opens with the lulling motion of arpeggios in the piano bass line, underpinning a soothing, quietly sung vocal line. At the line "But the day of farewells will come, " a crescendo slowly builds to a forte climax on "dare the lure of the horizon." The piano leads the way back to the more flowing sprit of the opening, ending the song in the tone in which it began. ~ All Music Guide Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) Les berceaux Le long du Quai, les grands vaisseaux, Que la houle incline en silence, Ne prennent pas garde aux berceaux, Que la main des femmes balance. Mais viendra le jour des adieux, Car il faut que les femmes pleurent, Et que les hommes curieux Tentent les horizons qui leurrent! Et ce jour-là les grands vaisseaux, Fuyant le port qui diminue, Sentent leur masse retenue Par l'âme des lointains berceaux. René-François Sully-Prudhomme (1839-1907) Cradles ...
Frédéric Chopin's "Raindrop" Prelude, Op 28, No. 15
Frédéric Chopin's "Raindrop" Prelude, Op 28, No. 15 Beginning in D-Flat Major, this piece focuses on inner confliction and the contemplation of the solitary self. The composition was born from the mind of Frédéric Chopin in 1858 during his stay at the Valldemossa monastery. Amantine Dupin once commented, "It casts the soul into a terrible dejection. Maurice and I had left [Chopin] in good health one morning to go shopping in Palma for things we needed at our "encampment." The rain came in overflowing torrents. We made three leagues in six hours, only to return in the middle of a flood. We got back in absolute dark, shoeless, having been abandoned by our driver to cross unheard of perils. We hurried, knowing how our sick one would worry. Indeed he had, but now was as though congealed in a kind of quiet desperation, and, weeping, he was playing his wonderful prelude. Seeing us come in, he got up with a cry, then said with a bewildered air and a strange tone, "Ah, I was sure that you were dead." When he recovered his spirits and saw the state we were in, he was ill, picturing the dangers we had been through, but he confessed to me that while waiting for us he had seen it all in a dream, and no longer distinguishing the dream from reality, he became calm and drowsy. While playing the piano, persuaded that he was dead himself, he saw himself drown in a lake. Heavy drops of icy water fell in a regular rhythm on his breast, and when I made him listen to the sound of the drops of water indeed falling in rhythm on the roof, he ...

Max Bruch-Allegro con Moto, Op. 83--clarinet, viola & piano Max Bruch-Eight Pieces for Clarinet, Viola & Piano, II. Allegro con Moto in B Minor, Op. 83--Jonathan Garza, clarinet; Joyalene Ng, viola; Cynthia Westerbeck, piano.

Pacific Union College Music Department presents: Violist Joyalene Ng; "Music for the 20th Century Romantic," Sunday, Nov. 16, 2008. Paulin Hall Auditorium.

"Max Bruch (1838-1920) a German composer, was a hard core romantic - at least from the way this composition sounds. This piece is the second out of eight short pieces for clarinet, viola, and piano, and I picked it because of the luscious sweeping piano lines."--Joyalene Ng.
"Going Home" - Dvorak
"Going Home" - Dvorak Sissel sings "Going Home" (Dvorak music) This song is an adaptation of Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No.9 in E-Minor, Op. 95 'From the New World': II. Largo. Sissel Kyrkjebø is one of my favorite singers. From Wikipedia: Sissel is considered one of the world's top crossover sopranos. Sissel's musical style runs the gamut from pop recordings and folk songs, to classical vocals and operatic arias. She possesses a "crystalline" voice and wide vocal range, sweeping down from mezzo-soprano notes, in arias such as Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix from Saint-Saëns's opera Samson et Dalila, to the F natural above soprano C. She sings mainly in English and Norwegian, but has also sung songs in Swedish, Danish, Gaelic, Italian, French, Russian, Icelandic, Faeroese, German, Neapolitan, Māori, Japanese and Latin. She is well known for singing the Olympic Hymn (Hymne Olympique) at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway; for duets with Plácido Domingo, Charles Aznavour, José Carreras, Neil Sedaka, Warren G, Brian May, Bryn Terfel, Josh Groban, Diana Krall, Russell Watson and The Chieftains; and her participation on the Titanic film soundtrack. ♥♥♥ Do enjoy this song as much as I do. ♥♥♥ video scenery: Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco It was cold and raining today (about 4:30pm February 19, 2011), that's why portion of the video is a tiny bit shaky.

Jack Gibbons plays Alkan Concerto for solo piano (1st mvt)
Jack Gibbons plays Alkan Concerto for solo piano (1st mvt) Jack Gibbons plays the first movement (complete) of Alkan's Concerto for solo piano.

The monumental Concerto for Solo Piano makes up Etudes 8-10 of Charles-Valentin Alkan's 'Douze Etudes dans les Tons Mineurs' (Twelve Studies in the Minor Keys), Alkan's magnum opus, published in 1857. The Concerto for solo piano has been described as a musical epic and as one of the most original works of its century, and contains some of Alkans finest and most haunting music. As the title of the work suggests, Alkan recreates the massive and contrasting sounds of both piano and orchestra through just one pair of hands (the entry of the solo pianist, following the 'orchestral' exposition, is obvious from the rising sweep of a pianistic scale). The gigantic proportions of the first movement are superbly controlled in Alkans masterly construction, the contrasting mixture of excitement and tenderness, ferocity and lyricism being held together in a model of coherence and logical progression.

Jack Gibbons made his London debut in 1979, at the age of 17, performing the Alkan Concerto for solo piano. A year earlier, at the age of 16, he had given only the second ever performance in history of the complete Concerto (Ronald Smith gave the first ever complete performance of the work the previous year, 1977). In 1995 Jack Gibbons became the first pianist to perform the entire three and a half hour 'Douze Etudes dans les Tons Mineurs' of Alkan in a single concert.

Mais viendra le jour des adieux, Car il faut que les femmes pleurent, Et que les hommes curieux Tentent les horizons qui leurrent! Et ce jour-là les grands vaisseaux, Fuyant le port qui diminue, Sentent leur masse retenue Par l'âme des lointains berceaux. Cradles Along the quay, the great ships, that ride the swell in silence, take no notice of the cradles. that the hands of the women rock. But the day of farewells will come, when the women must weep, and curious men are tempted towards the horizons that lure them! And that day the great ships, sailing away from the diminishing port, feel their bulk held back by the spirits of the distant cradles.
Purcell: O dive custos - Elegy on the death of Queen Mary
Purcell: O dive custos - Elegy on the death of Queen Mary Emma Kirkby, soprano Evelyn Tubb, soprano New London Consort, Martin Neary Text by Henry Parker (1695) O dive custos auriacae domus Et spes labantis certior imperi; O rebus adversis vocande, O superum decus in secundis! Seu te fluentem pronus ad Isida In vota fervens Oxonidum chorus, Seu te precantur, quos remoti Unda lavat properata Cami, Discende caelo non ita creditas Visurus aedes praesidiis tuis, Descende visurus penates Caesaris, et penetrale sacrum. Maria musis flebilis occidit, Maria, gentis deliciae brevis; O flete Mariam! flete Camoenae! O flete, Divae, dea moriente. O sacred guardian of the House of Orange, And certain hope of faltering sovereignty, O thou on whom we call in our misfortunes, Our chiefest glory in prosperity! Whether to thee, prostrate by Isis' stream, Th'Oxonian chorus pays its ardent vows, Or whether they entreat thee, who are laved By hastening waters of the distant Cam, Come down from heaven to visit these thy temples, Bestowed - not thus - upon thy votaries; Come down, to see the sacred hearth and home Of Caesar, and to pass into the shrine. Mary is dead: lament now, O ye Muses! Mary, the brief delight of all our nation; O weep for Mary! weep, O soul of poesy! Weep, goddesses: divinity is dead. (translated by Bruce Wood)

Kol Nidrei, by Max Bruch, Melanie Ellison cello, Kasia Sokol The sound will come in at 0:09 - just keep watching! Melanie Ellison, cello; Kasia Sokol, conductor; Durango Youth Symphony April 2008. Max Bruch took the mournful "Kol Nidrei" theme for this concerto from the Jewish Kol Nidrei service that takes place at the start of Yom Kippur. The second, more hopeful theme (5:34) comes from a tune called "Oh Weep for Those That Wept on Babel's Stream."
