I've gone wrong several times while playing Bach! laugh
___________________

Giacomo Carissimi was a Catholic priest, like Monteverdi before him, writing in the Roman school. Monteverdi wrote the ground-breaking Orfeo and Carissimi not only developed the recitative style that it established but also championed the oratorio, opera without the action, that gave Handel his greatest vehicle.

Though he didn't lead the great change from sacred to secular music his output had a long lasting influence upon it.

I had heard of him and his importance as an early Baroque composer but I've not heard anything by Carissimi before. What have I been missing?

"Rimanti in pace omai", Rhyming in peace henceforth, a madrigal for two voices.

I've been watching 'the trip' and this features in it. R Strauss and the Italian landscape make for a very heady mix.

"Royalist" music. (as opposed to parliamentarian or Roundhead music)

If there was a Costitutional crises in the UK, where The Queen VS parliamnet.

I would side with the Queen, for the following reasons.
You get to get long hair and wear feathers and carry a sword.
Cavalier attitudes are acceptable.
You get given a big estate and a title, and can play rug slidey games in
your stately home.

But if you sided with oliver cromwell, you get to go to church every sunday, no music and no maids.
And one of the worst haircuts ever imagined.

But what is Royalist music? apart from say "god save the Queen" what else could I learn to play that would interest and amuse our wonderfull unique monarchy?

I know Queeny loves things like March militaire by schubert, and probably a little hendrix, but what really constitutes Royalist music?

I don't want to get it wrong, because I like my head on my shoulders and not in a basket.
This is a totally serious thread, the first person to go "off topic" will be to blame and it wont be my faultivered for her" to Hamptom Court where he at all.

Suggestions for Royalist music please:


Hello, your thoughts are most interesting...
... I am not sure Oliver Cromwell was "without music" because his cousin Anne Cromwell was a well known 17th century composer and Oliver Cromwell had all sorts of instruments transported to Hampton Court to please his cousin (there might be a story there...) and Cromwell wanted to give his cousin Anne an opportunity to have access to these instruments...
Anne Cromwell is well known for her compositions which were collected and published in her Virginal Book...

There are many interesting suggestions for "Royalist music"... and there we have to figure out the particular angle: the Stuart angle or the "Windsor touch"?

Some composers were quite dedicated to their Monarch, i.e. Purcell dedicated many of his compositions to Queen Mary, Elgar dedicated some of his best known pieces to "The Windsors" and Haendel's many compositions for the King, King's wife and the King's children (whose music teacher he was)come to mind. John Bull composed some of his best compositions for his Monarch whilst he still lived in the UK and so did Farnaby and many other composers...one of my favourite is Clarke's "The Prince of Denmark's March" ... there are so many composers who composed many wonderful compositions...

HI Kristina!

I'm sure Rossy would have something fascinating to say, but he has abandoned us like the red headed step children that we are.

Hi Aimee!! Good to hear from you. I hope you're doing well with the new job and all. I'll be listening to your postings a bit later.

Thanks everyone for the great postings. I've been listening to them. However, I have to limit my time to a bit of lurking and listening these days. Every time I think of posting some music, there is this keyboard that I have to spend time with first. The next thing I know it's bedtime...like right about now! smile

Good night!

Hi gang! Hope you're all keeping well.

How's the new job, Aimee?

And where's our stalwart Recaredo? Head down at the University?

I've been enjoying this album in the car and improvising on this song at the piano. Loving it.

Hi all! Excelent postings from everyone.


Yes Richard, this is being hard, but on the bright side I didn't remember that there were so many pretty girls at the University laugh .

Some Spanish music to make this afternoon more cheerful: a nice version for three guitars on the “pasodoble” Francisco Alegre.

HA! I am glad my postings are torture for you, Wayne! I will have to just find some more especially for you wink

Grif, Richard - hi!! All is well at new job.. I am getting lots out of it still. I am now learning Access design and VBA code, and just got an invitation to sit in on someone else's HTML class. Things I never thought I'd be doing there, but thrilled it's happening! Are you guys working on your Rachmaninoff yet?

Hi Recaredo! Glad you are liking looking at the little college girls! Because going back is hard.. hope you are doing well, although I am sure you are..

I don't know why this makes me laugh so hard, but it does, and Mike can't sing (or speak here) to save his life. This is horrible, so I apologize to everybody else but Wayne!

Saw a great performance of this a few months ago.. We went to actually see Lilya Zilberstein perform Prokofiev 3 concerto in the first half of the performance, and this was part of the second half. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.. now you enjoy!

Hey Aimee, fantastic version you chose to post for Ravel's Bolero; often conductors say it's not an easy work to perform.

Glad to see you that happy with your job wink

Hi everyone! Glad to see you all posting with good news. smile

Rachmaninoff is taking a back seat, Aimee. Griffin is retired, a simile for too busy(!), and with my current schedule I might as well be! laugh

I return to normal next weekend though according to the calendar.

In the meantime here's a little diversion...

Well, the academic year is over for both my lads and my calendar is looking much freer.

I'm hoping to catch up on piano and guitar during the coming week.

lol Wayne actually after I posted it, I thought, hmm, Wayne WILL prolly like this one hehehehe

Great stuff, everybody (even yours, Wayne wink )


One of my latest piano listening obsessions.. Liszt transcription of the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 7th symphony. No one seems to know who made this recording, but I've been in love with it forever and rediscovered it a couple of weeks ago. I love the dynamics in this piece!

Hi guays, Hope you all are doing well!

Last Monday I had a little surgery for an inguinal hernia. I'm getting better but couldn't play the piano this week, among other things. I hope to start practicing again next week. I really miss the keyboard.

Cheers

I've found this improvised solution to sit at the piano. I can't get a right posture, but at least am able to play for a little time.

Hi everyone! I just dropped by to give my greetings and to especially wish a speedy recovery to Recaredo.

I miss not being able to spend very much time here. However, if things go well, I'll have some things to share a bit later this summer. I'll keep lurking, however.

Be well everyone! smile

I was singing this today mowing the lawn. I wonder why I never hit the big time? laugh
