Liszt? It depends, not a bad way to introduce this kind of music to kids I reckon. Have not seen Disney till I was I dunno a big kid. We've had something else. Sounds nice, performance included, to me nevertheless.

Was wondering if Strauss is not actual landing instead of lift off? Sunrise .. whatever.

Now for some old skool electro beats... I mean, uh... early Italian Baroque. :shifty:

Johann(es) Hieronymus Kapsberger (also: Giovanni Girolamo or Giovanni Geronimo Kapsperger), (c. 1580 – 17 January 1651) was a German-Italian virtuoso performer and composer of the early Baroque period. A prolific and highly original composer, Kapsberger is chiefly remembered today for his lute, theorbo and chitarrone music, which was seminal in the development of these as solo instruments.

Kapsberger - Ciaccona

Edit: Incidentally, ciaccona is Italian for chaconne (which BrandySpears mentioned earlier).

:lol: Yeah, funny that. It also helps to remember which notes to hit. :smile:

Although, having the sheet music in front of you kind of helps. :think:

"Yo soy la locura" Anónimo del Siglo XVII Interpretado por Silva de Sirenas
Roughly (badly, by me) translated: "I am folly", 17th century anonymous interpretation for (Enríquez de Valderrábano's 1547 publication) Silva de Sirenas ("Wood/Forest of Sirens"). Somebody, for the love of early Spanish music, please tell me how far off I am with this.

Swoon!

I can't find it in my Schirmer index but the Wiki page is quite good on this and links to sheet music archive, where I've downloaded a recorder transcriptions. I might even play it, record myself, and post it here. :D In the meantime I'm going to play the clip again and imagine it's being sung just for me - whatever it's about. :oops:

Here are some beautiful songs by Chopin, while we're on the subject. :D

Garrick Ohlsson is on the piano for each of them, accompanying Ewa Podleś. All nineteen songs are available on Youtube, but I'll choose my favourite three.

Życzenie (The Wish)

FABULOUS! I love the State Trumpet on the organ at St. John the Divine. If you aren't familiar with this stop, it is the loudest speaking organ stop in the world under 50" of wind pressure. The enchamade where the State Trumpet is located is over 1000 ft. away from the rest of the organ and console.

The organ restored after the fire of 2002.

Here is another performance:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nASaTyi9ffY[/youtube]

Intérpretes:
- Montserrat Figueras (Soprano).
- Andrew Lawrence-King (Arpa).
- Pedro Estevan (Percusión).


Lyrics:

Yo soy la locura,
la que sola infundo
placer y dulzura
y contento al mundo.

Sirven a mi nombre
todos mucho o poco,
y no, no hay hombre
que piense ser loco.

[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nASaTyi9ffY]


Google translate gives us:

I am crazy
which only infuse
pleasure and sweetness
and content to the world.

Serving my name
all more or less,
and no, no man
think being crazy.


From what I can make out of the uploader's comments, it is Henri du Bailly's (a lutenist of Louis XIII's court) vocal version of the La Folia: "Yo soy la locura". Apparently, the Spanish lyrics and choice of accompaniment were the "result of the [then] fashion of Spanish culture in the French court".

So, my guess is, it's based on one of the pieces in Enríquez de Valderrábano's Silva de Sirenas, which (according to the Wikipedia article) contains various "vihuela works of anonymous authors", in particular, folias. ¿Sí o no? :think: :dunno:

I've never been a fan of Delius. As a young man I would often walk past the blue-plaque on his former residence in Ilkley, Yorks, on my way up to the eponymous moor, my girl on one arm and a blanket over the other. I think Ken Russell's film did a lot to put me off actually, and the titles of his concert pieces are often rather sugary, as is the music often. But I heard this piece on the radio this morning and it stopped me in my tracks, and despite its title it is a wonderful, evocative piece of music very much in the British pastoral tradition. I heartily recommend it to all my chums.

Walk to the Paradise Garden
London Symphony Orchestra, Sir John Barbirolli

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVeaAhYluOc[/youtube]


the YouTube blurb wrote:"Walk to the Paradise Garden" is the orchestral interlude between Scenes 5 and 6 of the opera "A Village Romeo and Juliet". The Paradise Garden is actually a dilapidated Pub where the lover's Sali and Vreli can "dance all night". The rural lover's have known each other since childhood and are willing to die together rather than give in to the pressures that will separate them. This interlude seems to synthesize many elements found in the opera, the "Paradise Garden", a seedy country dance hall where the two lovers make a pact to do themselves in, a plot of land where they played together during their childhood, the Dark Fiddler and his symbolic social conflicts, the hay barge which will sink in the river and carry them to their death, and most of all, the heartbreak of Love; painful it weaves in long almost unbearable phrases, an operatic play within a play based on the definition of the words "Paradise Garden".

Paintings: Works by John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836- 1893)

I'm definitely going to check out A Village Romeo and Juliet now.

And, entirely unrelated:

ETA: The third movement of La Catedral is amazing. The whole thing reminds me a bit of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" (yeah, I know he never actually called it that).

I think the soprano player does really well not to go blue and fall over towards the end of this. :D
