Short Movie: “Waldesnacht”

in: A Youtube powered Guide to Classical Music, Klangvölle, Picturesque

Kino Dynamique Jena: This time I couldn’t resist doing a movie myself. The result can be seen here, it’s pretty self-explanatory. Waldesnacht (Johannes Brahms) is sung by the King’s Singers – Buy their CD’s! – they are great.

Enjoy!

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.

Ravi Shankar, Alla Rakha – Introduction to Tala

in: A Youtube powered Guide to Classical Music

Indian (here Hindustani) classical music has an amazing depth. Often misunderstood as Jazz alike in the western worlds it represents an other rich but very different approach to reach the highest spheres of musical culture beside the western classical music. (isn’t “classical” actually a quite inapplicable term?)
