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

Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 - Aria Da Capo

Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 - Aria Da Capo

Johann Sebastian Bach - Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 - Aria Da Capo (performed by Shelley Katz) Johann Sebastian Bach (31 March [O.S. 21 March] 1685 -- 28 July 1750) was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist of the Baroque period. He enriched many established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Mass in B minor, the The Well-Tempered Clavier, his cantatas, chorales, partitas, Passions, and organ works. His music is revered for its intellectual depth, technical command, and artistic beauty. Bach was born in Eisenach, Saxe-Eisenach, into a very musical family; his father, Johann Ambrosius Bach, was the director of the town musicians, and all of his uncles were professional musicians. His father taught him to play violin and harpsichord, and his brother, Johann Christoph Bach, taught him the clavichord and exposed him to much contemporary music. Bach also went to St Michael's School in Lüneburg because of his singing skills. After graduating, he held several musical posts across Germany: he served as Kapellmeister (director of music) to Leopold, Prince of Anhalt-Köthen, Cantor of Thomasschule in Leipzig, and Royal Court Composer to August III. Bach's health and vision declined in 1749, and he died on 28 July 1750. Modern historians believe that his death was caused by a combination of stroke and pneumonia. Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected throughout Europe during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the main composers of the Baroque period, and as one of the greatest composers of all time.

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.

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.

Ludwig van Beethoven - String Quartet No. 16, Op. 135

Ludwig van Beethoven - String Quartet No. 16, Op. 135

- Composer: Ludwig van Beethoven (17 December 1770 -- 26 March 1827) - Performers: Alban Berg Quartett - Year of recording: 1981 String Quartet No. 16 in F major, Op. 135, written in 1826. 00:00 - I. Allegretto 06:22 - II. Vivace [Scherzo] 09:50 - III. Lento assai e cantante tranquillo 17:39 - IV. Grave ma non troppo tratto - Allegro ("Der schwer gefasste Entschluss") Beethoven wrote the bulk of this, his final quartet, in a two-month burst of activity amid health problems and shortly after his nephew Karl attempted to commit suicide. But there's not a hint of self-pity or anguish in this compact, good-natured work. For Beethoven's valedictory composition, this quartet is surprisingly small-scaled, finding inspiration in the quartets of Beethoven's one-time teacher Haydn. - The first movement, Allegretto, takes standard sonata form. Its principal theme in 2/4 hints at a march; this, the light textures, and Beethoven's reliance on very short phrases give the movement a playful nature that is emphasized by Beethoven's abrupt melodic and harmonic shifts and frequent interruptions in mid-phrase. - Beethoven carries this unpredictability over to the second movement, Vivace, which is a scherzo and trio. Again, the overall format is traditional, but the movement abounds in rhythmic asymmetry disrupting the basic 3/4 meter, as well as suddenly modulating chromatic harmonies and melodies being gagged at inopportune moments. It's one of the most comic creations in Beethoven's chamber music. - In deep contrast is the slow movement, Lento assai cantante e tranquillo. This is a D flat major theme with four variations; variety and development come more through harmonic coloring than motivic manipulation. The second variation slips into a dark C sharp minor, the only spot in this work where listeners obsessed with music as autobiography might find a reflection of Beethoven's troubled life. The third variation returns to the major key for a quiet treatment of the theme in canon between the first violin and cello, and the fourth toys with rhythmic details without disrupting the music's serenity. - The finale initially seems to be a great, tragic utterance; Beethoven casts the introduction, Grave ma non troppo tratto, in F minor. At the head of the score Beethoven has written, in German, "The difficult decision," and next to the tempo indication are the words "Muss es sein?" (Must it be?). The cello and viola seem to be asking that question in the introduction, but soon the music breaks into an F major Allegro; here, Beethoven has written "Es muss sein!" (It must be!). Those three syllables form the rhythmic basis of the main theme, and seem to be inspired by an exchange between Beethoven and a friend regarding payment of money. The movement proceeds according to sonata structure, spirits remaining high right through the whimsical pizzicato passage that leads to the affirmative final bars.

Richard Strauss - Tod und Verklärung, Op.24

Richard Strauss - Tod und Verklärung, Op.24

"Tod und Verklärung" (Death and Transfiguration), Op. 24, is a tone poem for large orchestra by Richard Strauss. Strauss began composition in the late summer of 1888 and completed the work on November 18, 1889. The work is dedicated to the composer's friend Friedrich Rosch. Unusual for a composer of 25 years of age, the music depicts the death of an artist. At Strauss's request, this was described in a poem by the composer's friend Alexander Ritter as an interpretation of Death and Transfiguration, after it was composed. As the man lies dying, thoughts of his life pass through his head: his childhood innocence, the struggles of his manhood, the attainment of his worldly goals; and at the end, he receives the longed-for transfiguration "from the infinite reaches of heaven". There are four parts (with Ritter's poetic thoughts condensed): 1. Largo (The sick man, near death) 2. Allegro molto agitato (The battle between life and death offers no respite to the man) 3. Meno mosso (The dying man's life passes before him) 4. Moderato (The sought-after transfiguration) Conductor: David Zinman & Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra Painting: "Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer" by Caspar Friedrich

Richard Strauß: Vier letzte Lieder

Richard Strauß: Vier letzte Lieder

Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks; Ltg. Mariss Jansons Anja Harteros, Sopran Zu Strauß' "Vier letzte Lieder": Die Vier letzten Lieder, AV 150 von Richard Strauss nach Gedichten von Hermann Hesse und Joseph von Eichendorff entstanden 1948 in der Schweiz, wohin Strauss mit seiner Frau nach Kriegsende gezogen war. Der Titel stammt nicht vom Komponisten, sie waren auch nicht als abgeschlossener Zyklus gedacht. Sie dokumentieren vielmehr eine kontinuierliche, dynamische Auseinandersetzung mit den Themen Tod und Abschied, auch vor dem Hintergrund des vergangenen Krieges und in Gewärtigung des eigenen, baldigen Todes. Strauss hatte in dieser Zeit zufällig Hermann Hesse in einem Schweizer Hotel kennengelernt. Hesse war die Begegnung nicht angenehm, auch weil ihm Strauss' "rauschender" Stil nicht zusagte. Zu den "Vier letzten Liedern" sagte Hesse später, sie erschienen ihm "wie alle Strauss-Musik: virtuos, raffiniert, voll handwerklicher Schönheit, aber ohne Zentrum, nur Selbstzweck." In der ersten gedruckten Ausgabe, die postum 1950 bei Boosey & Hawkes erschien, wurde auf Anleitung des Verlagsleiters Ernst Roth, mit dem Strauss befreundet war, eine von der Chronologie der Entstehung abweichende Reihenfolge gewählt, die bis heute -auch im Konzertgebrauch- beibehalten wurde: 1. Frühling (Abschlussdatum: Pontresina, 13. Juli 1948; Text: Hermann Hesse, April 1899) 2. September (Abschlussdatum: Montreux, 20. September 1948; Text: Hermann Hesse, 23. September 1927) 3. Beim Schlafengehen (Abschlussdatum: Pontresina, 4. August 1948; Text: Hermann Hesse, Juli 1911) 4. Im Abendrot (Abschlussdatum: Montreux, 6. Mai 1948; Text: Joseph von Eichendorff) Es war auch Roth, der der Ausgabe den Titel "Vier letzte Lieder" gab. Die Uraufführung der vier Lieder fand am 22. Mai 1950 in London statt; die Interpreten waren Kirsten Flagstad und das Philharmonia Orchestra unter Leitung von Wilhelm Furtwängler. Weiterlesen: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vier_letzte_Lieder
