Bach - cello suites.
Image
Pablo Casals (recorded 1936-1939). Unsurpassed. Feeling and conviction. Every gesture is persuasive. Lives and breathes them.
(Youtube) Suite 1 Suite 2 Suite 3 Suite 4 Suite 5 Suite 6

There are many interesting recordings, among them Jian Wang (2005), Anner Bylsma (1992), Edgar Meyer on double bass (suites 1, 2, & 5; 2000). Nikolaus Harnoncourt is more famous as a conductor, but he took a stab for Teldec's complete-Bach set (playlist here).

The suites are superbly suited to viola. Currently in love with Helen Callus's confident turn (playlist here). A sample... suite 4, prelude:

Too heavy/dour. Too long. Too organ-y. Too much.

Here's another one for ya.
Bach: WTC book 1, prelude 1/ Gounod: "Ave Maria". McFerrin + audience.



It's a nice space, but wouldn't I love to have been in the crowd in this version - in the rain. :)

My jaw dropped when he started doing the prelude :lol:

So I'm assuming the Gounod was made to go over it? It sounds a little wonky at some parts towards the end, but for the most part seems like they were made to go together. Or maybe that's just a consequence of them being in the same key, the Bach piece being specifically about practicing in keys? (Apologies if this sounds dumb, my academic-technical knowledge of music ain't so hot)

Yep, Gounod built his piece on top of the prelude. :thumbup:

For some reason the mention of Stravinsky always makes me want to listen to Frank Zappa more than Stravinsky.

Was browsing for some reassurance that this blender on amazon isn't just one of the billion junk items they sell (my gods, amazon sucks!), and stumbled on this blog entry about the movie Tous Les Matins du Monde, which is about a late 17th century French composer & his sad love story. Internet is weird.

Then I discovered that Metro: Last Light adapted it for its main theme music.

Marin Marais (1656-1728) - "La Rêveuse". Jérôme Hantaï, viola da gamba.

(More from the same film.)

The conductor for this soundtrack, Jordi Savall, was a founder of Hespèrion XX, which I'm finding out evolved into Hespèrion XXI, which is featured in my first post in this thread, about a year ago.

Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) - "Marche Pour La Cérémonie Des Turcs".



I wish I could time travel, kidnap a few hundred composers & musicians from ~1500 to 1780, and take them with me to the 23rd century. With their families & friends, of course. I'm not a monster. :roll:
