Kurt Masur celebrated by Google Doodle – why is the German conductor being celebrated on his 91st birthday?

The orchestral supremo became world-renowned for his his faith in the intensity of music to 'bring humanity closer together'

Kurst Masur was born on July 18, 1927, in Brieg, a town now known as Brzeg in modern day Poland.

He was called up as a youngster to join the "Volkssturm" German militia in late 1944 as World War Two entered its final stages.

Aged 17, Masur was captured by Allied forces after just 27 of the 150 soldiers in his unit survived military operation.

Following the war, he studied piano, composition and conducting in Leipzig, but left before completing his studies after being offered a job at the age of 21.

Masur twice conducted the Dresden Philharmoic Orchestra – from 1955 to 1958 and 1947 to 1972 – and took the prestigious role of Kappelmesiter of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig in 1970.

He stayed in the position until 1996, performing Beehoven's ninth symphony at the German reunification celebrations in 1990.

From 1991 to 2002 he was the music director of the New York Philharmonic, and the principal conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra from 2000 to 2007.

In New York, he directed Brahms's Deutsches Requim following the September 11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

As well as receiving numerous musical honours, he was named Grand Officer of the Legion of Honour by the French government, became a New York City Cultural Ambassador and was given the Commander Cross of Merit by the Polish Republic.

Masur was married thrice, and had a total of five children including son Ken-David, a classical singer and conductor.

In 2015 died at the age of 88 in Greenwich, Connecticut, after suffering complications of Parkinson's disease.

Bernstein, The greatest 5 min. in music education

Bernstein, The greatest 5 min. in music education

This amazing lecture series (The unanswered Question ), is actually an interdisciplinary overview about the evolution of Western European classical music from Bach through the 20th century crisis and beyond a bit . Mr. Bernstein uses linguistics namely Chomskian Linguistics to provide a framework to illustrate how music and all the arts evolved toward greater and greater levels of ambiguity/expressivity over history until the 20th century crisis . He manages this impressive feat of popular education , by dividing music into; Phonology (the study of sound); Syntax (the study of structure) and; Semantics (the study of meaning)

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

Claude Debussy - La Mer

Claude Debussy - La Mer

"La Mer" L.109, (The Sea), is an orchestral composition by Claude Debussy. It was started in 1903 in France and completed in 1905 on the English Channel coast in Eastbourne. The premiere was given by the Lamoureux Orchestra under the direction of Camille Chevillard on 15 October 1905 in Paris. "La Mer" is a composition of huge suggestion and subtlety in its rich depiction of the ocean, which combines unusual orchestration with daring impressionistic harmonies. The work has proven very influential, and its use of sensuous tonal colours and its orchestration methods have influenced many later film scores. While the structure of the work places it outside of both absolute music and programme music as those terms were understood in the early 20th century, it obviously uses descriptive devices to suggest wind, waves and the ambience of the sea. But structuring a piece around a nature subject without any literary or human element to it - neither people, nor mythology, nor ships are suggested in the piece - also was highly unusual at the time. Debussy called his work "three symphonic sketches," avoiding the loaded term symphony; yet the work is sometimes called a symphony; it consists of two powerful outer movements framing a lighter, faster piece which acts as a type of scherzo. "La Mer" is divided inot three movements: 1. "De l'aube à midi sur la mer" (from dawn to midday on the sea); 2. "Jeux de vagues" (Play of the Waves); 3. "Dialogue du vent et de la mer" (Dialogue of the wind and the sea). Conductor: Vladimir Ashkenazy & Cleveland Orchestra

Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube Waltz

Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube Waltz

Disscuss/Review The Blue Danube Waltz at https://classicalmusiconly.com/work/johann-strauss-ii/the-blue-danube-op-314-e6o3 Title : Johann Strauss II , The Blue Danube Waltz Date : 1867 From Wikipedia,The Blue Danube is the common English title of An der schönen blauen Donau op. 314 (On the Beautiful Blue Danube), a waltz by Johann Strauss II, composed in 1867. Originally performed 9 February 1867 at a concert of the Wiener Männergesangsverein (Vienna Men's Choral Association), it has been one of the most consistently popular pieces of music in the classical repertoire. Its initial performance was only a mild success, however, and Strauss is reputed to have said "The devil take the waltz, my only regret is for the coda -- I wish that had been a success!" The waltz originally had an accompanying song text written by Josef Weyl. Strauss adapted it into a purely orchestral version for the World's Fair in Paris that same year, and it became a great success in this form. The instrumental version is by far the most commonly performed today. An alternate text by Franz von Gernerth, Donau so blau (Danube so blue), is also used on occasion. The sentimental Viennese connotations of the piece have made it into a sort of unofficial Austrian national anthem. It is a traditional encore piece at the annual Vienna New Year's Concert. The first few bars are also the interval signal of Osterreich Rundfunk's overseas programs. It is reported by composer Norman Lloyd in his "Golden Encyclopedia of Music" that when asked by Frau Strauss for an autograph, the composer Johannes Brahms autographed Mrs. Strauss's fan by writing on it the first few bars of the Blue Danube. Under it he wrote "Unfortunately not by Johannes Brahms".The work commences with an extended introduction in the key of A major with shimmering (tremolo) violins and a French horn spelling out the familiar waltz theme, answered by staccato wind chords, in a subdued mood. It rises briefly into a loud passage but quickly dies down into the same restful nature of the opening bars. A contrasting and quick phrase in D major anticipates the waltz before 3 quiet downward-moving bass notes "usher in" the first principal waltz melody. The first waltz theme is familiar gently rising triad motif in cellos and horns in the tonic D major, accompanied by harps; the Viennese waltz beat is accentuated at the end of each 3-note phrase. The Waltz 1A triumphantly ends its rounds of the motif, and waltz 1B follows in the same key; the genial mood is still apparent. Waltz 2A glides in quietly (still in D major) before a short contrasting middle section in B flat major. The entire section is repeated. A more dour waltz 3A is introduced in G major before a fleeting eighth-note melodic phrase (waltz 3B). An loud Intrada (introduction) is then played. Waltz 4A starts off in a romantic mood (F major) before a more joyous waltz 4B in the same key. After another short Intrada in A, cadencing in F-sharp minor, sonorous clarinets spell out the poignant melody of waltz 5A in A. Waltz 5B is the climax, punctuated by cymbal crashes. Each of these may be repeated at the discretion of the performer. The coda recalls earlier sections (3A and 2A) before furious chords usher in a recap of the romantic Waltz 4A. The idyll is cut short as the waltz hurries back to the famous waltz theme 1A again. This statement is cut short, however, by the final codetta: a variation of 1A is presented, connecting to a rushing eighth-note passage in the final few bars: repeated tonic chords underlined by a snare drumroll and a bright-sounding flourish.

Richard Wagner - Siegfried Idyll

Richard Wagner - Siegfried Idyll

Conductor: Sergiu Celibidache & Münchner Philharmoniker Apart from the operas, Wagner composed a small number of pieces; this stems from his reluctance to conceive music which didn't belong to the sacredness of the drama, fundamental expression of his thought. The "Siegfried Idyll" is a symphonic poem for chamber orchestra, composed by Richard Wagner (1813-1883) as a birthday present to his second wife, Cosima, after the birth of their son Siegfried in 1869. It was first performed on Christmas morning, 25 December 1870, by a small ensemble on the stairs of their villa at Tribschen. Wagner's opera "Siegfried", which was premiered in 1876, incorporates music from the Idyll. It was once thought that the Idyll borrowed musical ideas intended for the opera, but it is now known that the opposite is the case: Wagner adapted melodic material from an unfinished chamber piece in the Idyll and later incorporated it into the love scene between Siegfried and Brunhilde in the opera.

Gustav Holst - The Planets, Op. 32

Gustav Holst - The Planets, Op. 32

"The Planets", Op. 32, is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst, written between 1914 and 1916. Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst. With the exception of Earth, which is not observed in astrological practice, all the planets are represented. The idea of the work was suggested to Holst by Clifford Bax, who introduced him to astrology when the two were part of a small group of English artists holidaying in Majorca in the spring of 1913; Holst became quite a devotee of the subject, and liked to cast his friends' horoscopes for fun. The suite has seven movements, each named after a planet and its corresponding astrological character: 1. Mars, the Bringer of War (00:00 - 07:21) 2. Venus, the Bringer of Peace (07:22 - 15:59); 3. Mercury, the Winged Messenger (16:00 - 19:51); 4. Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity (19:52 - 27:49); 5. Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age (27:50 - 36:31); 6. Uranus, the Magician (36:32 - 42:14) 7. Neptune, the Mystic (42:15 - 49:01). Holst's original title (clearly seen on the handwritten full score) was "Seven Pieces for Large Orchestra". he orchestral premiere of The Planets suite, conducted at Holst's request by Adrian Boult, was held at short notice on 29 September 1918, during the last weeks of World War I, in the Queen's Hall with the financial support of Holst's friend and fellow composer Henry Balfour Gardiner. It was hastily rehearsed; the musicians of the Queen's Hall Orchestra first saw the complicated music only two hours before the performance, and the choir for "Neptune" was recruited from pupils from St Paul's Girls' School (where Holst taught). It was a comparatively intimate affair, attended by around 250 invited associates, but Holst regarded it as the public premiere, inscribing Boult's copy of the score, "This copy is the property of Adrian Boult who first caused the Planets to shine in public and thereby earned the gratitude of Gustav Holst." Conductor: Andrè Previn & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Allegro molto 20:59 - Allegro vivace Performed by Charles Mackerras and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (1990). "Schubert's Fifth Symphony, composed in 1816, is Mozartian in scale and design and embraces the earlier Classical style so wholeheartedly that Beethoven might as well never have lived. Schubert's self-confessed admiration for Mozart is never far below the surface, and is especially apparent in the Menuetto and in the Finale, which also owes something to Haydn." - Adélaïde de Place Painting: Italian Landscape with Umbrella Pines (1807), Hendrik Voogd

Richard Strauss - Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30

Richard Strauss - Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30

Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30 (Thus Spoke Zarathustra or Thus Spake Zarathustra) is a tone poem by Richard Strauss, composed during 1896 and inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophical treatise of the same name. The piece is divided into nine sections played with only three definite pauses. Strauss named the sections after selected chapters of the Nietzsche's book: 1. "Einleitung" (Introduction): according to the interpretations, it should represent the Creation or the coming of the new age of the Overman and so, because of its evocative and declaimed aspect, it is led back to the Overman's motto. 2. "Von den Hinterweltlern" (Of the Hereaftergo'ers): here the brass quote the gregorian cento "Credo in unum Deum" or "I believe in one God" to represent faith at the top synthesis. 3. "Von der großen Sehnsucht" (Of the Great Longing): maybe it represents the age of "Sturm und Drang"; here there's a liturgical quotation from "Magnificat". 4. "Von den Freuden und Leidenschaften" (Of the Joys and Passions): the word to the strings, at the top tension; the trombones expose the theme of "Taedium Vitae". 5. "Das Grablied" (The Grave-Song): part where the strings prevail. 6. "Von der Wissenschaft" (Of Science): it is a fugue whose subject all only the twelve notes to represent scientism, positivism and maybe, to ridicule the rising dodecaphony. 7. "Der Genesende" (The Convalescent): it completes the tension of the previous movement, then, after a rough pause determined by a rip of the strings in the bass register, it starts again from the mystery to go to the atmosphere of the following movement. 8. "Das Tanzlied" (The Dance Song): the theme of "Taedium Vitae" is taken again trasfigured in a waltz. 9. "Nachtwandlerlied" (Song of the Night Wanderer): coda where the finale is suspended avoiding the cadence on the tonic. Paintings by J.M.W. Turner and Caspar Friedrich. Conductor: Georg Solti & Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Who was Evelyn Dove? - Everything You Need to Know about "British singer" Evelyn Dove.

Today the Search Engine Google is showing a Doodle for Evelyn Dove. Google is celebrating British singer Evelyn Dove’s 117th Birthday in a few countries with a doodle. Today’s Doodle celebrates the life and legacy of British star Evelyn Dove, a classically trained singer, pianist, and actress known for her powerful vocals and glamorous image. Dove became the first black singer on BBC Radio, opening doors for women of color in the entertainment industry. Born in London on this day in 1902, Dove was the daughter of Francis Dove, a successful attorney and businessman from Sierra Leone and his English wife, Augusta. Drawn to the performing arts, Evelyn studied voice, piano, and elocution at the Royal Academy of Music, graduating with a silver medal in 1919. Despite her outstanding contralto voice, she found it difficult to break into the classical music scene as a woman of mixed race, so she performed at cabaret and jazz shows all over London. She also became a member of the Southern Syncopated Orchestra, an ensemble featuring West Indian and African musicians that were invited to perform at Buckingham Palace. Through the mid-1920s, Dove sang with Black jazz revues like the Chocolate Kiddies, gaining worldwide exposure. She performed in around the globe from Russia to Harlem and Bombay, and even replaced Josephine Baker at the Casino de Paris. Starting in 1939, Dove recorded BBC radio’s Serenade in Sepia along with Trinidadian folk singer Edric Connor. The series went on for a decade, eventually becoming a popular TV show. She later starred in a 1958 West End production of Langston Hughes's Simply Heavenly. Happy Birthday, Evelyn Dove! For More details visit https://www.google.com/doodles/evelyn-doves-117th-birthday

Fahrelnissa Zeid , Princess Fahrelnissa Zeid , Turkish artist Fahrelnissa Zeid Google Doodle

Fahrelnissa Zeid , Princess Fahrelnissa Zeid , Turkish artist Fahrelnissa Zeid Google Doodle

Fahrelnissa Zeid , Princess Fahrelnissa Zeid , Turkish artist Fahrelnissa Zeid Google Doodle Today the Search Engine Google is showing a Doodle for Fahrelnissa Zeid. Google is celebrating Turkish artist Princess Fahrelnissa Zeid in a few countries with a doodle. Fahrelnissa Zeid fused modern European approaches to abstract art with Byzantine, Islamic and Persian influences to create a unique visual vocabulary. It is astonishing that an artist of such force and originality should have been practically forgotten, particularly in London and Paris where she was a prominent figure in the art scene for decades. This exhibition charts Zeid’s development towards abstraction and reveals how she later abandoned this in favour of an experimental amalgamation of painting and sculpture before finally returning to portraiture. Zeid was born into an elite Ottoman family in Istanbul in 1901. She was one of the first women to receive formal training as an artist in Turkey, before continuing her education at the Académie Ranson in Paris in the late 1920s. Her second marriage, to Iraqi ambassador Prince Zeid Al-Hussein, in 1935 brought diplomatic duties and relocation to Berlin and then Baghdad. Notebooks record the development of her visual style, which flourished on her return to Istanbul in the early 1940s. This exhibition begins in earnest with her paintings from this period. Little survives of her earlier work. Zeid went on to have an exceptional career, living and working in a wide range of geographical and cultural contexts as indicated on the opposite wall. Room One - Ways of living Zeid began drawing and painting at an early age, inspired by her mother and her older brother, who dropped out of Oxford University to study art in Rome. The earliest work in this exhibition is a delicate portrait of the artist’s grandmother, painted in 1915 when Zeid was fourteen years old. Room Two - Fight against abstraction At the end of the Second World War, Zeid’s husband, Prince Zeid Al-Hussein, was appointed ambassador of the Kingdom of Iraq to the United Kingdom and the couple relocated to London. Here Zeid’s work underwent a radical transformation. Despite many diplomatic obligations and social engagements, Zeid continued to paint, turning a former maid’s quarters in the embassy into her studio. Although based in London, she also rented a studio in Paris and divided her time between the two cities. Room three - Resolved problems By 1948 Zeid had established her own abstract style. Over the next fifteen years, living between London and Paris, she produced monumental abstract paintings which reveal her synthesis of a wide range of influences, from nature and Islamic architecture to Byzantine mosaics and stainedglass windows. Her determination and energy are evident in these crowded compositions, realised with rapid brushwork. Room four - The influences of nature In the 1950s Zeid bought a holiday villa on the Italian island of Ischia. There, she began to move away from the strong black lines that had underpinned her abstract paintings, experimenting with a looser and more lyrical style, while continuing to make a large number of drawings and prints. Room five - Late style At the age of fifty-seven, Zeid cooked a meal for the first time. The enforced domesticity that resulted from the sudden end of her ambassadorial lifestyle offered her an unexpected source of inspiration. She started painting on turkey and chicken bones as she had previously done on stones, later setting the bones in resin. She displayed these sculptures on motorised turn-tables so they could be seen from all sides, with lighting that emphasised the translucent quality of the material.
