Raff - Piano Concerto in C minor, Op. 185 - Part 1/3
Raff - Piano Concerto in C minor, Op. 185 - Part 1/3 Piano Concerto in C minor, Op. 185 I. Allegro II. Andante quasi larghetto III. Finale: Allegro Composer: Joseph Joachim Raff (1822-1882) Performer: Michael Ponti (piano) & Hamburg Symphony Orchestra Conductor: Richard Kapp Raff was born in Lachen in Switzerland. He was largely self-taught in music, studying the subject while working as a schoolmaster. He sent some of his piano compositions to Felix Mendelssohn who recommended them to Breitkopf and Härtel for publication. They were published in 1844 and received a favourable review in Robert Schumann's journal, the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, which prompted Raff to go to Zürich and take up composition full time. In 1845, Raff walked to Basel to hear Franz Liszt play the piano. After a period in Stuttgart where he became friends with the conductor Hans von Bülow, he worked as Liszt's assistant at Weimar from 1850 to 1853. During this time he helped Liszt in the orchestration of several of his works, claiming to have had a particularly big part in orchestrating the symphonic poem Tasso. In 1851, Raff's opera König Alfred was staged in Weimar, and five years later he moved to Wiesbaden where he largely devoted himself to composition. From 1877 he was the first Director of, and a teacher at, the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt am Main. There he employed Clara Schumann and a number of other eminent musicians as teachers, and established a class specifically for female composers (this was at a time when women composers were not ...

More Classical Whistling
More Classical Whistling Whistling a classical improvisation. I don't listen to much classical music, but I do find myself doing classical sometimes when I whistle. This song, or at least portions of it, seem to be a sort of whistling waltz. People usually think of Jazz, blues, or rock when they hear the word "improvisation," but I think you can improvise in any musical style. I enjoy a little classical improv when I'm whistling. I'm not nearly as good as Geert Chatrou, but I still endeavor to whistle the best I possibly can. My Facebook: www.facebook.com My album of whistling music on iTunes: itunes.apple.com

Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No.1 ( Orchestra )
Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No.1 ( Orchestra ) Title: Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No.1 ( Orchestra ) From Wikipedia, The Gymnopédies, published in Paris starting in 1888, are three piano compositions written by French composer and pianist, Erik Satie. These short, atmospheric pieces are written in 3/4 time, with each sharing a common theme and structure. Collectively, the Gymnopédies are regarded as the precursors to modern ambient music[citation needed] - gentle yet somewhat eccentric pieces which, when composed, defied the classical tradition. For instance, the first few bars feature a disjunct chordal theme in the bass - first, a G-major 7th in the bass, and then a B-minor chord, also in the lower register. Then comes the one-note theme in D major. Although the collection of chords at first seems too complex to be harmonious, the melody soon imbues the work with a soothing atmospheric quality. Satie himself used the term "furniture music" to refer to some of his pieces, implying they could be used as mood-setting background music. However, Satie used this term to refer to only some of his later, 20th century compositions, without specific reference to the Gymnopédies as background music. From the second half of the 20th century on, the Gymnopédies were often erroneously described as part of Satie's body of furniture music, perhaps due to John Cage's interpretation of them.
