Beethoven, Symphony 9/2, D minor Op 125 'Choral' Thielemann Vienna
Beethoven, Symphony 9/2, D minor Op 125 'Choral' Thielemann Vienna 02 Scherzo. Molto vivace. Presto, Beethoven Symphony 9/2 Choral Thielemann Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra The Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, is the final complete symphony of Ludwig van Beethoven. Completed in 1824, the symphony is one of the best known works of the Western classical repertoire, and has been adapted for use as the European Anthem. It is considered by critics to be one of Beethoven's masterpieces and one of the greatest musical compositions ever written. The symphony was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony (thus making it a choral symphony). The words are sung during the final movement by four vocal soloists and a chorus. They were taken from the "Ode to Joy", a poem written by Friedrich Schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803, with additions made by the composer. The title of Schiller's poem "An die Freude" is literally translated as "To Joy", but is normally called the "Ode to Joy". It was written in 1785 and first published the following year in the poet's own literary journal, Thalia. Beethoven had made plans to set this poem to music as far back as 1793, when he was 22 years old. Beethoven was eager to have his work played in Berlin as soon as possible after finishing it, since he thought that musical taste in Vienna was dominated by Italian composers such as Rossini. When his friends and financiers heard this, they urged him to premiere the symphony in Vienna. The Ninth Symphony was premiered on 7 May 1824 in the ...

Mozart - Symphony No. 35 in D Major "Haffner" - Mov. 1/4
Mozart - Symphony No. 35 in D Major "Haffner" - Mov. 1/4 WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART (1756-1791) Symphony for orchestra and timpani in D major K385 "Haffner" 1. Allegro con spirito Performed by The English Concert Directed by Trevor Pinnock *Symphony No. 35 in D major, K. 385 was composed in 1782 and is also called the Haffner Symphony. It was commissioned by the Haffners, a prominent Salzburg family, for the occasion of Sigmund Haffner's ennoblement. The Haffner Symphony should not be confused with the Haffner Serenade, another piece Mozart wrote on commission from the same family. The Haffner Serenade, K. 250, is in eight movements and was composed six years earlier in 1776. The Haffner Symphony did not start its life as a symphony, but rather as a serenade to be used as background music for the ennoblement of Sigmund Haffner. The Mozarts knew the Haffners through Sigmund Haffner's father, also Sigmund Haffner, who had been mayor of Salzburg and who had helped them out on their early tours of Europe. The elder Haffner died in 1772, but the families remained in contact. In 1776, the younger Haffner commissioned a serenade for the wedding of Marie Elizabeth Haffner to Franz Xavier Spath. This work became the famous Haffner Serenade which was so successful that, when the younger Sigmund Haffner was to be ennobled, it was only natural that Mozart was called upon to write the music for the occasion. The request to write music actually came via Mozart's father on 20 July, 1782 when Mozart had no spare time. Mozart was "up to his ...

Gabriel Grovlez: 4 pieces from 'L'Almanach aux Images'
Gabriel Grovlez: 4 pieces from 'L'Almanach aux Images' 1 - Les Marionnettes (The Puppets); 4 - Chanson du Chasseur (Huntsman's song) ; 5 - Les Ânes (The Donkeys) ; 7 - Chanson de l'Escarpolette 'L'Almanach aux Images', a set of eight short piano pieces, is perhaps Grovlez' best-known work, and these four pieces complete my recording of the set - the other four appear on other videos which I made over a year ago. Each piece in 'L'Almanach aux Images'is prefaced by a poem by the French 'fantaisiste' poet Tristan Klingsor (1874-1966). He is still in EU copyright for a long time to come, so I will not reproduce the poems. Grovlez (1879-1944) was a French pianist and conductor, who premiered Ravel's Sonatine in 1906.
Chopin - Polonaise in A-flat major "Heroic" Op. 53
Chopin - Polonaise in A-flat major "Heroic" Op. 53 - The Polonaise in A-flat major, Op. 53 or (French: Polonaise héroïque, Heroic Polonaise) for solo piano was written by Frédéric Chopin in 1842. This masterpiece is one of Chopin's most popular compositions and has always been a favorite of the classical piano repertoire. The piece requires exceptional pianistic skills and requires virtuosity to be played at an appropriate level of quality. It is also sometimes referred to as the Drum Polonaise. Although the piece is labeled as a polonaise, it has little to do with the typical polonaise style. It presents two sections with a polonaise rhythm, but most of it has no particular polonaise attribute. It has been said that Chopin had composed the piece having a free and powerful Poland in mind, which may have led him to label it as a polonaise - Polonez As-dur op. 53 - Polonez Fryderyka Chopina zwany Heroicznym (fr. Polonaise héroïque). Został skomponowany na fortepian solo w 1842. Jest ważnym symbolem polskości oraz jednym z najbardziej znanych polonezów Chopina. Należy do najważniejszych dzieł w repertuarze fortepianowym. Tempo Poloneza to Alla polacca e maestoso (W tempie poloneza, majestatycznie)
