Pierre Certon: “La, la, la, la, je ne l’ose dire”

in: A Youtube powered Guide to Classical Music

This tiny bit of music is particularly interesting because of its arrangement – try to follow individual voices – you will see, it’s quite hard ;) Especially in this amazing interpretation by the King’s Singers.

Download the score la, la, la, la je ne l’ose dire.

Jean-Christophe Spinosi drives me crazy

in: A Youtube powered Guide to Classical Music

A friend of mine introduced me to Spinosi’s interpretation of Vivaldi’s Op. 439 “La notte” – I found it amazing and fresh. Thus I want to share this amazing pice of music with you:

(Unfortunately I could not find the scores for the Vivaldi online beside this one at Google Books which is quite restricted.)

Also check out this Telemann interpretation (TWV 52:e1): which is as impressive as the Vivaldi above.

“Der Besondere Kuss” short movie from KDJ festival

in: Klangvölle

The Kino Dynamique Jena (KDJ) festival offered a spot for filmmakers from all over the world to meet and work together producing short movies. They got 60 hours of time for developing an initial idea, filming, cutting, post-processing and presenting the movies in a public screening at the Schillerhof cinema – plenty of time so to say
Nico Herzog came up with the Idea to visualize the flute playing and the sounds coming from the instrument. Izabela Spaleniak and me used the opportunity to help out Nico playing a improvised voiceless dialog with our flutes. The title “Der Besondere Kuß” actually originates from an article by Arthur Schopenhauer, who stated that the flute player’s lips actually form the shape of a special gentle kiss rather for a beloved one than for an instrument. Probably, this is one reason for the very special relation between flautists and their instruments – I like that idea

See the result:

Thank you Iza, Nico and Mathias for your support and of course: Thanks to the people who organized the festival!

Also have a look at some other movies produced at the festival here!
