Default Film,History and Music

For all the movie buffs out there ( and I am not talking about Mainstream Hollywood ) : if you remember that magic film "The unbearable lightness of being " by Philip Kaufmann from 1984 ,based on a novel by Milan Kundera about the uprising during the Prague spring in 1968.Well,apart from Juliette Binoche's stunning debut in that film ,there was also a lot of Leos Janacek's ( 1854-1928 ) piano music in it,particularly from a piano cycle called ' On an overgrown path '. A particular piece from this cycle is :
"Sýček neodletěl!" ( "The barn owl has not flown away".)
It's haunting one and matches the film's melancholic and tragic atmosphere.

Default International Women's day

Today ( 8th March ) is International Women's day. Well, I am a bloke , but in my field there are legions of extremely talented female musicians to be found. Here is a totally forgotten one: the French pianist Blanche Selva ( 1884-1942 ). She performed already in 1904 in 17 recital the complete piano works by Johann Sebastian Bach. A true pioneer.
Her playing is nothing short of magic.
Here is a stunning recording of Bach's 1st Partita for piano,recorded in 1928.
One of the many timeless masterpieces by Bach,that even after playing and listening hundreds if times still grows on me.

Intersting...

It started out sounding like a scratchy (possibly warped vinyl), but the playing was beautiful,...then around the 11 minute mark, it sounds like an entirely new track was added that is crisp and clear. It's actually laid over the original track...

But when I replayed it was seamless...same scratchy vinyl at the end, and no overlay.

That was strange.

Default Sanctus

The greatest mass of all times: Bach's b minor .
Here comes the mighty "Sanctus".
What Mahler said about his 8th symphony : "the universe starts to sound" can be easily applied here too.

Default La Mer ( 1903-1905 )

For the more advanced listener,this is not the usual 3-5 minute shot.Here is Debussy's masterpiece,the symphonic poem " La Mer ". Details to be found with the clip.
One of the greatest orchestra works of the 20th century.Best enjoyed with headphones ( or if you have an IMac or your PC hooked up with decent speakers.) Take the time out for this,it's worth it !

Nice to hear that ! If you like Debussy then I also recommend Ravel's orchestral works like his Rhapsodie espagnole, Daphnis et Chloe ,to name a few. A delicacy of a special kind is Debussy's only opera " Pelleas and Melisande".
I'll bring some more on soon. :)

Default Bolero

Ravel's most famous piece in a performance with Sergiu Celibidache ,who was one of the top dogs when it came to Bruckner,Debussy and Ravel. The tempo is considerably slower than any other version,the tension is heighthened,relentless and the build up truly breathtaking.22 minutes of mesmerising music making.Particularly take note of the accompaniment,which becomes more and more persistent,something no other version will have to that extent.
"Celi" ,as his fans called him was a true genius. His concerts unforgettable experiences,even the public rehearsals used to be sellouts,with thousands in the audience.I will never forget this man.
