Have a good trip Becca, and be safe especially if on your kwak and feeling down or distracted.. take it easy and get back here when you can.

When I die, yes , I know I know it will be seen as a sad event by the , arthritically crippled old lady down the road for whom I did some gardening once ( because she pays well)

But, for most of my family and three out of my four friends, it will be a happy magical and mystically spiritually uplifting time for them.

They will dance and sing good songs (not out of Mr williams repertoire)and drink alcoholic beverages and take stuff and eat pills and pour amaretto on my grave for me to drink in the afterlife and have a party round my grave that lasts for about 3 or 4 days and nights and have a good fire. Dogs will be welcome, ( but not kids because they whine and get in the way of fun and shout and argue with each other ) also human mutoids will be most welcome as will be any social outcast or outsider.

Anyways , when I do dying, I will hopefully do it in some sort of style and in a totally disgracefull way, like with a ciggie in one hand and an amaretto or girl in the other and something in my mouth ( either the amaretto or girl, depending on the quickness of death)

I will probably go in a very noisy fashion and complain loads to get as much attention as possible as men are oft fond of doing with things like "man-flu" but much more intense, because I will see my death as more worthy of being waited on hand and foot than manflu commands.

hopefully before my demise happens I will have loads of money to buy servants and have a bell that I can ring for when I want things bringing to me immediately.

Purty words, Richard!

And yes, Wayne, I'm in!

Rossy, I understand where you're coming from, in a slightly different way. I had a similar issue when Whitney Houston died. The difference was that it didn't bother me to hear her music played constantly, because I like her music. What bothered me is that many people around me where I work suddenly decided they had immense singing talent, and screeched their way through many of poor Whitney's songs. Repeatedly. There are just some notes that the average person can't hit, and they should stop trying. For me.

Yoko's knitting in this video is fascinating.

Sorry to hear about your uncle Becca. x

Hi everyone!

Coming back to soviet composers, but this time to post about a well known musician: Dmitri Kabalevsky.

His suite “The comedians” has plenty of nice melodies, probably you'll recognize some of them, since they've been used in some films, and there are piano transcriptions from this music.

Hi Rossy!

No, I’m not suggesting that, now I can just focus on Satie.There's still a lot of work to do with my Gnossienne!

I'm so Sorry for being quite irregular in RST frown Though it's become my daily habit to check for new posts on RST at least once a day, still I get quite a few chances to be active here. Anyway, after a long time I've got a mood for posting some ICM today.:) This time it'll a bit different, it's ICM on Piano! I've recently come across this amazing young Indian talent who successfully achieved wonderful renditions of the moods of raga on piano. His name is Utsav Lal. I've recently purchased one of his albums and I really liked it. I've just made a video of one track of this album. It's on Raga Hansadhwani. Let's enjoy:

There are several other beautiful performances of him on youtube. The following one is really interesting. It's on a new kind of piano, viz, the fluid piano. I've first heard of this piano. You can change the tuning of each note in this piano while performing, thus it allows a smooth transition between notes which is one of the most important ornament in ICM. It sometimes sounds like a Sitar or Sarod.


Here is another of his performance on Raga Yaman:


Richard, your thoughts for us and your engagements with RST really touched me. We are so lucky to get such a wise and knowledgeable musician like you. Thank you so much for your commitment, your beautiful posts and sharing your versatile knowledge with us.

And thanks to all Rostoskians for spending their valuable time to maintain such a wonderful friendly and musical environment at RST!

Rupak, thanks a lot you nuisance, why so you may ask? well before I hadnt heard of the fluid piano, so I didnt really think about wanting one or how to get one.

Now I have heard it, I want one.

amazing a sitar with the precision of a keyboard.

I have to repost that on PC, I just have to, you all know why.

Good day, everyone! How's the Satie going? I see you have a full house!

We start our Sunday Classical selection with a nod to the Almighty. This is an example of what we gave up when we introduced tonal music: The Agnus Dei from Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli. This is Palestrina's most famous Mass and is the culmination of all his compositional skills.

The gaiety returns with the Estudiantina Waltz from Emil Waldteufel. Emil was born in Alsace at a time when it was French. It was German when he died 78 years later.

Waldteufel was to Paris what Strauss was to Vienna when the Waltz was a global craze.

This Sunday's vocal offering is one of the world's favourite duets, from Bizet's The Pearl Fishers, In the Depths of the Temple. Jussi Bjorling, one of the finest voices of the last century, and Robert Merrill do it justice.

Bizet was a brilliant pianist whose sight reading skills were a match for Liszt or Saint-Saëns but he chose to focus on opera. Neither of his earlier two operas, The Pearl Fishers nor The Fair Maid of Perth were big successes but his Carmen was spectacular though he died three months after its release considering it a failure.

This, together with the top comment on YouTube for this piece, "When I am in despair from what humans do to each other, other living creatures and our planet, this reminds me that humans can be divine and our existence may be justified", prompted my little eulogy midweek. I was going to add it to this posting but I couldn't wait.

The calm before the storm is Mahler's Adagietto from his fifth symphony (and the movie Death in Venice). This popular piece is the most commonly played single movement of all of Mahler's work and was known in England thirty six years before the whole Symphony.

Such is the emotional outpouring in this love letter to his wife, which he performed in around eight minutes, that modern conductors such as Karajan, Bernstein, Ozawa, Barenboim and here, Karajan's successor at the Berlin Phil., Sir Simon Rattle, have drawn it out to an adagio of around eleven minutes. Is it any wonder I've been weeping since Wednesday, when I worked out the weekend's warblings.

The final entry in todays selection is O Fortuna, one of the most popular and frequently played classical pieces. Trust me to start AND finish in Latin! This is a poem from the 13th century, part of a collection known as the Carmina Burana and was set to music as a cantata by Carl Orff.

Here with the words...



Here with the pictures...



Have great Sunday, everyone.

thumb Richard that was an absolutely fabulous program of classical music! Bravo! O Fortuna was a very dramatic selection to conclude with. I'm going back for a second listen.

BTW, I am enjoying learning the Satie piece I've agreed to take on. Prior to this I had never played any of Satie's music, and am currently learning only one of the other French Impressionist composers, Claude Debussy. I'm really pleased Wayne was able to successfully pull together this team for the themed recital next month.

Thanks again Richard for giving me a break from Sunday classical postings to be able to participate in the Satie recital. Have a great day!

wow Rupak, I'm truly enjoying your ICM postings! I never knew about the pianist you introduced us to. Outstanding! I always learn so much when you present! Another great effort! Thanks.

I'll be back to practicing shortly. How are things going for you with your Satie piece?

Rupak, I also loved the fluid piano, I hadn’t seen it before, sounds like a proper instrument to ICM.


Great posts Richard! I enjoyed listening to them as much as I did reading your comments.

After listening to the Bizet, I felt the need to hear this:





Night!

Wayne - pmsl about the chinese phrases!

Richard - I really liked your postings - made more interesting by your explanatory notes

Isn't it great how those of us involved in the satie recital are pulling together now? It gives me a feeling of community on this thread which goes beyond writing postings to actually DOING things, for ourselves and the group effort. As well as folk preparing to perform a Satie piece, there are others in a 'backstage' role supporting the effort (Richard and Rossy).
