RT (XV) – J. Haydn – Cantates for the Esterházys

Serialul nostru Regii taumaturgi a ajuns la cel de-al XV-lea episod, asa ca m-am gandit ca ar fi timpul  pentru o mica modificare in titlu: vechiul Regii taumaturgi s-a transformat in RT. Minimalism, ce sa mai…

O adevarata apoteoza in versuri si ritmuri baroc-clasice a Printului Nicolaus Esterházy.

Destatevi, o miei fidi. Duetto:

Al Tuo arrivo felice. Coro:

Qual dubbio ormai. Aria:

Qual dubbio ormai. Coro:

Evgeny Mravinsky

Evgeny Mravinsky

premiered Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony. The fate of Shostakovich’s latest symphony appeared to lie in his hands. The result was an astonishing performance and the audience went wild: men and women wept openly during the Largo, and as the finale progressed listeners began to rise gradually to their feet, greeting its final chords with tumultuous applause as Mravinsky waved the score above his head.

Va invit sa ascultati mai jos ultima parte a acestei Simfonii – 4. Allegro non troppo – sub bagheta lui Evgeny Mravinsky:

___________

Herbert von Karajan once recorded Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony and was pretty much happy about it. He then asked the orchestra manager to find him the record of the same symphony played by Mravinsky’s orchestra. “I hear he did a good job playing it,” Karajan smiled. Listening to Mravinsky’s record a whole three times in a single night, Karajan called the studio in the morning and asked them to delete his own version. He never got back to the Fifth Symphony again.

Regii taumaturgi (XI) – Celestiall Witchcraft

Celestiall Witchcraft. The Private Music of Henry and Charles, Princes of Wales.

Foarte faina o definitie oferita muzicii in carticica de prezentare a acestui album – pe care o puteti descarca, de sunteti amatori de mai multe detalii, de aici:

Music, the celestial art highest above the dark forces.

Ca multe alte compilatii, si acest CD contine o multime de compozitori mai putin cunoscuti. Dintre ei am ales doi: John Coprario si William Lawes.

Un articol interesant care arata pasiunea Printului Henry de Wales pentru muzica (a se vedea si interesantul Appendix IV – Music in memory of Prince Henry):
