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 <b>...</b>
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 <b>...</b>
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 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

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 <b>...</b>

[Arthaus 100713] TCHAIKOVSKY: Swan Lake (Bolshoi Ballet, 1989) From the Bolshoi Theatre 1989. Swan Lake is the very essence of classical ballet and has a rather venerable history of its own. First choreographed in 1877 by the great Marius Petipa for the Bolshoi, this original choreography has since been tweaked by almost every choreographer to get hold of it down through the years. Yuri Grigorovich keeps the general outline of the story of a prince who falls in love with the mythic half-woman, half-swan Odette (only to betray her when she appears to him in disguise as Odile). Grigorovich however added a controversial twist with his inclusion of a psychological dimension to the proceedings: the evil sorcerer cast as the dark twin of the hero-prince. The pearl of this production is undoubtedly Alla Mikhalchenko as Odette-Odile. Her impressive technique and brilliant acting gives the character a new expressive dimension.

Max Kayser , violin 1955 Tchaikovsky: Serenade Melancolique Max Kayser , violin ; FFB Sinfonieorchester Berlin , Wilhelm Schüchter, dirigent. Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Serenade Melancolique, Op. 26 for Violin and Orchestra . Imperial 45 RPM record. I've transferred it myself. Imperial was a budget sub-label of EMI, marketed at the European continent, Germany especially. They started ambitiously in 1954, and recorded the core repertoire in rapid succession. Kayser, later in his live the violinist in the Gobel trio Berlin, was one of the young artists recording for Imperial. His 10# LP of Bruch's violin concerto is a well sought item among record collectors, This Serenade was recorded around 1955. For three years I have a website, where I post "out-of-copyright" (in the Netherlands) classical lp's and 78rpm's. It is updated every Friday: homepages.ipact.nl Enjoy!
