Default off topic ( or half way...)

@ Strawberry ( without the bitch,as I am sure you are more a strawberry than a bitch ): CLASSICAL. But we classical ones ( and I am a hardcore case, as its also my profession ) love to have sidekicks,its like eating sweets secretly as a child....
Tom Waits, Rina Ketty, Carlos Gardel are such detours for me.
( and isn't Tom Waits just great in ''Down by Law''even as an actor ! ).
Classical music though is 2 things:
--the actual classical period ,that is Haydn .Mozart,Beethoven at its core
--and in a wider sense meaning all 'serious' music preceding and following these guys,from Bach,via Chopin to Ravel,Bartok and Messiaen etc.
The grudge I have against lots of "modern music" ( Pop etc) is on the one hand its limit to the 3 and a half minute format and--much more so--today's almost total commercialisation of that music. It is written already with a maximum appealing factor in mind,originality and depth often non existent.
The difference in style from Bach via Mozart to Stravinski is amazing,the changes in harmony and concept staggering--compare Bach with Messiaen ,when I hear sometimes modern pop I get a headache from the hideous monotony of it all....
So my delight is considerable when I see that somebody squeezes into this short 3 and a half minute format such charm,charisma and genuine feeling as eg Gardel does.
Also it is a unique voice ,a unique experience,different from anybody else.
Also he represents a cultural tradition,deeply rooted and developed over centuries.
Phew.
Now that I have alienated half of the people who come here I better roll up my tail between my legs and bugger off. But before I do his ,here is some more forbidden fruit, a charming chanson singer from France:

@ Mozart: I thought so! :) Big and proud papa Mozart and his devotion to Classical period pieces. Shhh... your secret peccadilloes are safe with me- you may continue enjoying Gardel

PS: I`m definitely more like a strawberry; tart, versatile and for an acquired taste. The Bitch remarks the resilience of my favorite aircraft.See profile pic.

As I said before. Thank you, Mozart for all the musical knowledge you impart upon us. It`s true that music should first and foremost be felt, but by the same token, its technical structure should be comprehended in order to appreciate the genius or dullness of its creator.A legitimate reason to reproach synthesized music and praise the classical technique. As we keep posting, my musical knowledge continues to expand-my erudite self basks in joy! Keep it coming!

"If dont stand for something, you will fall for anything"... It`s important to defend where we stand.

comme toujours, exquis fruit defendu. jamais eu le plaisir d'entendre un tango francais. il ya une premiere fois pour tout. Je vous remercie. Mon franCais est basique, mais servi un peu, non?

Default Divertimento KV 563

That Paganini is indeed a great virtuoso piece.
But also Mozart wrote virtuoso music. One of his greatest works ever ,the late Divertimento KV 563 is such a piece. It is of a very profound nature ( always bordering on slight melancholy,or shall we say achingly beautiful tunes ),polyphonic writing, putting the absolute highest instrumental demands onto players . Perfect harmony between melody ,harmony,structure,using every instrument to the fullest. In a word : musical perfection. Not many musicians can play that.
Outstanding by a mile or so is Jascha Heifetz recording from the 30ies.
With William Primrose and Emmanuel Feuermann.
This is Mozart playing ( and writing ) of the highest order.Here is the last movement.
Chapeau Wolfgang Amadeus and thanks Jascha plus Band for doing such an exceptional job !

Default Stravinsky

@strawberry: those goosebumps jumped up and down my back....

Here is one of the most important pianistic recordings of the 70ies: Maurizio Pollini at his best. A breathtaking experience:

utmost temperament
clarity
superhuman virtuosity of a nearly unplayable score
a beautiful sound of crystal clear playing

A new style of piano playing that shaped the coming generations of pianists
in a word: a superlative,rare event.
Petrouchka,well,one can find relevant info at the web,so I do not need to go on here.
Enjoy this sensational clip. And beware of CD transfers,as it is not even half as good. This is from the original LP ( here a tape transfer).Stravinsky / Maurizio Pollini, 1971: Trois mouvements de Petrouchka - Complete - ???????? - YouTube
