Mendelssohn: String Symphony No. 9 (Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Kurt Masur)

Описание

One of the second group of six string symphonies written by the fourteen year old budding genius, the Sinfonia No. 9 in C, is brilliant and in every respect an early symphony. Its immediate predecessor, the Sinfonia No. 8 in D, combines Mendelssohn's nascent originality with a healthy leavening of the influence of Mozart. Rather than paying further tribute to Mozart, Mendelssohn opens this work in Haydn-esque fashion, with a great ponderous introduction which then bursts into a marvelous, animated first theme. It quickly becomes something Haydn could never have written, with much greater harmonic and rhythmic range and technical sophistications including a divided part for the violas and a sudden shift to a marvelously effective fugal passage at the seam between the exposition and development sections of the first movement. It leaps a generation beyond Haydn and is brilliant far beyond anything of Mozart's at the same age. The piece also features a wondrous, pensive andante second movement and a sparkling, thoroughly Mendelssohnian scherzo. The allegro vivace with which the work concludes once again features brilliant counterpoint, delightful wit, and thoroughly original melodic lines.

The work is significant as part of a set of thirteen early string symphonies which the composer wrote, partly as exercises and partly as an effort to spread his wings in the symphonic form. He had crafted the first six of these as early as 1821 - when he was all of twelve years of age - and at first they were purposefully patterned after the Empfindsamkeit style of works by C.P.E. Bach. This was at the direction of his first music tutor, Carl Freidrich Zelter. While the first six were both derivative and imitative, the second group, including this work, show signs of Mendelssohn kicking over the rote mimicry in favor of a more modern and personal style. That the youthful work seems influenced by Haydn in no way dims its brilliance.

I. Grave - Allegro (0:00)
II. Andante (10:34)
III. Scherzo - Trio piu lento "La Suisse" (17:12)
IV. Allegro vivace (20:41)

Mendelssohns - Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor (op. 25) , Yuja Wang, Kurt Masur (Full)

Kurt Masur (direction) Yuja Wang (piano) Verbier Festival Orchestra Mendelssohn piano concerto opus 25 Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor (op. 25) was written in 1830--1, around the same time as his fourth symphony ("Italian"), and premiered in Munich in October 1831. He had already written a piano concerto in A minor with string accompaniment (1822) and two concertos with two pianos (1823--4). The three connected movements — Molto allegro con fuoco in G minor Andante in E major Presto—Molto allegro e vivace in G major use several relatively new formal techniques in their brief span — for example, the piano enters very soon after the opening of the first movement, with little of an orchestral tutti to contrast with.[1] The concerto quickly obtained popularity, and contains many sections of improvisation, one of Mendelssohn's specialities. ===================== 王羽佳 門德爾松 - 鋼琴協奏曲 庫特·馬祖爾

Mendelssohn / String Symphony No. 11 in F major

Mendelssohn / String Symphony No. 11 in F major

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) String Symphony No. 11 in F major (1823) 00:00 - Adagio - Allegro molto 12:13 - Scherzo. Comodo (Schweizerlied) 16:06 - Adagio 23:54 - Menuetto. Allegro moderato 28:19 - Allegro molto Performed by Nicholas Ward and the Northern Chamber Orchestra. "String Symphony No. 11 in F major was not numbered and is a more extended work than the others, with its five movements. It starts with a solemn Adagio introduction, followed by an Allegro in which traces of Mozart or of Schubert might be detected, yet with an increasingly original voice. There is a return to the mood of the opening before the movement comes to an energetic and dramatic end. The Scherzo that follows makes use of a Swiss folk-song, an Emmental wedding-dance, a provenance that suggests the final use of percussion. This reminiscence of a holiday in Switzerland is absorbed into a more sophisticated classical musical idiom, in the manner of Haydn, until its last re-appearance. There is an Adagio of gently moving beauty and mature assurance, leading to a Minuet, a burst of energy that provides an immediate contrast, relaxing into a more lyrical Trio. The last movement includes the necessary late classical ingredient of counterpoint in its fugal writing, a Baroque legacy from which Mendelssohn had profited and which he here absorbs into an idiom increasingly his own." - Keith Anderson Background: Two Studies of Women, Jean-Antoine Watteau

From the Church of St. Nicolai, Leipzig, Germany (Starts at 1:30) 20 Years Peaceful Revolution - Leipzig commemorates the 9th of October 1989 Gewandhausorchester Leipzig Conductor: Kurt Masur Ludwig van Beethoven - “Egmont” Overture, Op. 84 Watch the full concert here: https://goo.gl/C7a9QS On 9 October 1989, 70,000 people staged a non-violent demonstration calling for more freedom and democracy in the GDR. Thanks to the claim “Peaceful Revolution”, initiated by Kurt Masur as one of six prominent citizens of Leipzig, everything proceeded peacefully. That evening, the Gewandhausorchester played under his baton Brahms’ Second Symphony at the St. Nicolas Church. The following regular "Monday Demonstrations", which came to be described as the “Peaceful Revolution”, became a major milestone on the way to open the Berlin Wall one month later on November the 9th in 1989 and paving the foundations for the reunification of the two German states. Exactly 20 years later, the Gewandhausorchester and Kurt Masur commemorate the beginning of the German reunification by presenting the same symphony at the same location.

Felix Mendelssohn - String Octet in E flat major, Op. 20

Felix Mendelssohn - String Octet in E flat major, Op. 20

- Composer: Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (3 February 1809 -- 4 November 1847) - Performers: Jascha Heifetz (violin), Arnold Belnick (violin), Israel Baker (violin), Joseph Stepansky (violin), Gabor Rejto (cello), Virginia Majewski (viola), Gregor Piatigorsky (cello), William Primrose (viola) - Year of recording: 1961 Octet for strings in E flat major, Op. 20, written in 1825. 00:00 - I. Allegro moderato ma con fuoco 12:48 - II. Andante 18:23 - III. Scherzo 22:41 - IV. Presto Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat major was composed in the autumn of 1825 (completed on 15 October), when the composer was only 16. He wrote it as a birthday gift for his friend and violin teacher Eduard Rietz (born 17 October 1802); it was slightly revised in 1832 before the first public performance on 30 January 1836 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus. Conrad Wilson summarizes much of its reception ever since: “Its youthful verve, brilliance and perfection make it one of the miracles of nineteenth-century music.” The piece is particularly significant in Mendelssohn's career as it was one of two singularly brilliant works considered to be a signpost of his genius in his teenage years. (The other work thus identified is the equally brilliant "Overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream" from 1826, uploaded on this channel.) It was also the first string octet to be written as a true eight-part work and to this day remains the finest work in that form extant. It bridges the gap between Mendelssohn the chamber composer and Mendelssohn the symphonist in a particularly effective way. The scherzo, later scored for orchestra as a replacement for the minuet in the composer’s First Symphony at its premiere, is believed to have been inspired by a section of Goethe’s Faust entitled “Walpurgis Night’s Dream.” Fragments of this movement recur in the finale, as a precursor to the “cyclic” technique employed by later 19th-century composers. The entire work is also notable for its extended use of counterpoint, with the finale, in particular, beginning with an eight-part fugato. The original score is for a double string quartet with 4 violins and pairs of violas and cellos. Mendelssohn instructed on the public score, “This Octet must be played by all the instruments in symphonic orchestral style. Pianos and fortes must be strictly observed and more strongly emphasized than is usual in pieces of this character.” The work has been compared to Louis Spohr’s 1823 Double Quartet No.1, Op. 65 in D minor, and stands out as one of the absolute highlights in the chamber music repertoire.

Mendelssohn / String Symphony No. 8 in D major

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) String Symphony No. 8 in D major (1822) 00:00 - Adagio e grave. Allegro 07:25 - Adagio 12:09 - Menuetto 16:53 - Allegro molto Performed by the Northern Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Nicholas Ward. "There is a solemn introduction to the String Symphony No. 8 in D major, the mood changing with the major Allegro, in the expected tripartite form, handled with a mature confidence worthy of Mozart. The Adagio makes use of three solo violas, cello and double bass, with dark-hued colouring that recalls the great two-viola G minor Quintet of Mozart in its sonorities. The mood is lightened by the cheerful Minuet, with its contrasting Trio. There is a Mozartian finale, providing, in its inspired fugal counterpoint, a brilliant conclusion." - Keith Anderson Painting: Soap Bubbles, Johann Melchior Würsch

The Best of Mendelssohn

The Best of Mendelssohn

The Best of Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (3 February 1809 -- 4 November 1847) A grandson of the philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, Felix Mendelssohn was born into a prominent Jewish family, although initially he was raised without religion and was later baptised as a Reformed Christian. Mendelssohn was recognised early as a musical prodigy, but his parents were cautious and did not seek to capitalise on his talent. Mendelssohn enjoyed early success in Germany, where he also revived interest in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and in his travels throughout Europe. He was particularly well received in Britain as a composer, conductor and soloist, and his ten visits there -- during which many of his major works were premiered -- form an important part of his adult career. His essentially conservative musical tastes, however, set him apart from many of his more adventurous musical contemporaries such as Franz Liszt, Richard Wagner and Hector Berlioz. The Leipzig Conservatoire (now the University of Music and Theatre Leipzig), which he founded, became a bastion of this anti-radical outlook. Mendelssohn wrote symphonies, concerti, oratorios, piano music and chamber music. His best-known works include his Overture and incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Italian Symphony, the Scottish Symphony, the overture The Hebrides, his mature Violin Concerto, and his String Octet. His Songs Without Words are his most famous solo piano compositions. After a long period of relative denigration due to changing musical tastes and anti-Semitism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, his creative originality has now been recognised and re-evaluated. He is now among the most popular composers of the Romantic era. 0:00 Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Op. 90: I.

Mendelssohn / String Symphony No. 9 in C major

Mendelssohn / String Symphony No. 9 in C major

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) String Symphony No. 9 in C major (1823) 00:00 - Grave. Allegro 08:22 - Andante 15:12 - Scherzo and Trio (La Suisse) 18:06 - Allegro vivace Performed by the Northern Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Nicholas Ward. "The String Symphony No. 9 in C major opens with a sombre slow introduction, followed by a lighter-hearted Allegro, its vigorous first subject leading to a more lyrical second subject, with a contrapuntal development at the heart of the movement. The Andante again makes use of solo instruments, this time four solo violins, accompanied by two violas, cello and double bass, in music that is effective in its moving contrasted chamber-music texture. The brilliant Scherzo has a Trio inspired by a holiday in Switzerland, a yodelling song, described in the autograph score simply as La Suisse. The opening of the last movement portends drama, leading before long to the deft handling of counterpoint that is now expected." - Keith Anderson Painting: Boy with a Spinning Top, Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin

Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 6, (Full version)

Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 6, (Full version)

I (0:00) II (10:56) III (24:10) IV (29:21) V (32:22) Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 6, (Full version) I. Happy Arrival 0:00 II. By the Brook 10:56 III. V. Shepherd's Song 32:22 Conducted by Frans Brüggen (Orchestra of the 18th Century) I'm happy for you all. Thank you for watching this nice symphony. Beethoven's 6th Symphony (Pastoral) A Love of Nature The Pastoral Symphony is a charming masterpiece which both paints a picture of nature and describes man's feelings towards it. Beethoven's great love of nature, the delight in strolling through the countryside in Vienna, the fact that he always found his equilibrium in the heart of nature, all these inspired him to create his sixth symphony. Beethoven's 6th Symphony is filled with colorful sounds, simple folk tunes, nice development, and a feeling of calm beauty. It contains meaningful emotional aspect which reflects mankind's feelings towards the natural world. Beethoven began sketching out his 6th symphony in 1802 and finished it in 1808. "How happy I am to be able to walk among the shrubs, the trees, the woods, the grass and the rocks! For the woods, the trees and the rocks give man the resonance he needs," Beethoven said in the summer of 1808. The premiere of the 6th Symphony was probably the grandest musical event in Beethoven's life. It was a massive concert packed with indelible moments of brand new Beethoven music! This programmatic endeavor is clearly expressed through the suggestive title of the symphony, as well as through the titles of each movement. When Beethoven found refuge in the midst of nature, he jotted down themes inspired by the trill of birds, the trickling of creeks or the rustle of leaves. In a notebook from 1803 was found an outline of a river's trickling with the additional note: "The greater the river, the more grave the tone." Beethoven spread out the symphony into five movements and gave each movement a little subtitle explaining what it was about. I. "Happy Arrival" (Awakening of cheerful feelings upon arrival in the country) The Pastoral symphony opens with warmth and calm, setting the scene as we arrive in the countryside. This has a programmatic indication. In this movement, we find a genuine popular sonority through the choice of instruments neatly weaved together. [Allegro ma non troppo] II. "By the Brook" (The natural scene of the stream) This slow movement is a beautiful depiction of the delicate nature of... nature itself. It is a wonderful scene of nature with exceptionally musical themes in the pure pastoral air. You can almost breathe the fresh country air! It is more of a description of sensations rather than images. Towards the end, we find the onomatopoeic sounds of birds. [Andante molto mosso] III. "Merrymaking" (Joyful gathering of countryfolk) Now we turn our attention to the loud, jolly peasants who live in the countryside. Here we see them celebrate with a joyful dance. Of course, these are simple folks, so the music itself is simple, but very energetic. [Allegro] IV. "ThunderStorm" (Heavy rumblings of natural forces) 29:21 With no pause between the previous movement and this movement, there is a dramatic surprise, hinting at trouble ahead. Yes, a storm is brewing! Beethoven inserts fantastic lightning crashes and a whirl of wind. He renders the stages of the storm as it unravels on the horizon and moves closer more and more threatening. The instruments with grave chords - cellos and double basses - through their sounds announce the storm, then the staccato sounds of the violins render the falling raindrops, and through the timpani and the flutes we sense the thunder and lightning. Then comes the rainbow. Above all these images, we feel the tense disposition that captures man facing the realities of nature. There is an urgent sense of human fear since humanity is powerless against the forces of nature. When the storm is over, all living creatures come to the surface, taking their place in the natural cycle. This is rendered by a choral of flutes which come as a sunray. [Allegro] V. "Shepherd's Song" (Expression of thanks when the storm is over) As the storm fades away, all the animals emerge, and there's a general feeling of relief. Sunshine reappears, and everyone's mind is relaxed again. This is the song of gratitude towards nature. It is a calm movement, full of grace. It starts out quiet, but quickly gets faster and happier. The music is fairly simple, but this makes its emotions of gratitude endearing. [Allegretto] Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, through its simplicity, is just sincere and natural.

Smetana: The Moldau (Czech National Symphony Orchestra)

Smetana: The Moldau (Czech National Symphony Orchestra)

Vltava, also known by its German name Die Moldau (or The Moldau), was composed between 20 November and 8 December 1874 and was premiered on 4 April 1875 under Adolf Čech. In this piece, Smetana uses tone painting to evoke the sounds of one of Bohemia's great rivers. In his own words: The composition describes the course of the Vltava, starting from the two small springs, the Cold and Warm Vltava, to the unification of both streams into a single current, the course of the Vltava through woods and meadows, through landscapes where a farmer's wedding is celebrated, the round dance of the mermaids in the night's moonshine: on the nearby rocks loom proud castles, palaces and ruins aloft. The Vltava swirls into the St John's Rapids; then it widens and flows toward Prague, past the Vyšehrad, and then majestically vanishes into the distance, ending at the Labe (or Elbe, in German). ****** If you like this video subscribe to my channel.
