This guy apparently has a pretty big youtube following. Amazing what he can do with just his voice, a looper, and vocal effects station.

It looks like we have a new contender for thread stalwart while our senior scholar is chasing girls grades away from home.

Really enjoyed the Thunderstruck video! smile

I hope we get a weekend like the last one over the next couple of days. And the weekend starts with Friday Night...

From my favorite scene of Titanic. Hope you enjoy this from "Gaelic Storm"

I love Irish jigs and reels but can't find many written for piano.

Here's the full concert that the coors did for MTV's unplugged. It's long (an hour and some change), but it really is wonderful start to finish. Really nice to have on in the background.

Greetings everyone! I'm pleased to see we're back to music sharing. Here's my first offering for the weekend. Here is vocalist Cassandra Wilson and her band performing St. James Infirmary at the Monterrey Jazz Festival. I'll be back later with some more things to share.

This piece is vastly different from my last posting. Right now I'm listening to various kinds of music suggested for relaxation to release tension in the body. These are some of the things I'm considering for the problem with my hand. There are a couple of interesting threads on the Pianist Corner discussing this if you're interested.

Here is one unexpected suggestion I found on a medical website. I happen to have it in my own collection, but would have never thought of it for relaxation. Here is Miserere by Gregorio Allegri.

I wanted to offer something with a bit of energy after a good iron workout with my boys but your Miserere stopped me short, Carl.

But in the end I decided after good dinner and a time lag I'd offer two pieces instead.
Life in the Fast Lane for energy...



...and Tavener for relaxing to.



Take your pick or try both!

What's happening tomorrow, I wonder?

I've been spending a good bit of time on Dvorak recently and am hoping to present some of his piano music at the next ABF recital. The "New World" was the only symphony of his that I was familiar with - I knew the Cello Concerto, of course, some chamber music (some of which I've posted here as part of Sunday Classicals) and his piano Humoreskes.

His seventh symphony is a recent revelation and I've posted it in full. It's a magnificent piece of work. I'll be working through all nine of his symphonies over the next while and see how he compares to Tchaikovsky, whose first three symphonies take a while to get into and don't really compare, musically, with the last three. Typically, any of the major composers after Beethoven who can match his count of large scale symphonies, nine, is usually rather good at the medium (Mahler, Bruckner) so I'm surprised I haven't investigated Dvorak before.

On a whim, and reminiscing about our absent Sunday Classical postings after last weekend, I've spread a sample from over four hundred years of music in Sunday mood.

I wangled all the other dates around the Dvorak but can't confirm the date of the Palestrina Mass though I'm sure it's pretty close. I could have used his "Tu es Pastor" Mass that was lately used to inaugurate Pope Francis - that was composed in 1585 - but there were no good performances of it that I could find on YT. The same was found with "Tu es Petrus", used at the last public mass by Benedict. The Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary is more likely earlier than later but I can't confirm the date but at over four hundred years I don't think the timing is critical.

I also picked only Roman Catholic composers (not difficult before the Romantic period) but I'm unsure about John Rutter though his Requiem was set to the RC Funeral Mass so that should be sufficient anyway. It's as difficult to separate the history of classical music from the church as it is to separate the history of rock from race.

Palestrina: Mass of The Blessed Virgin Mary 16th Century (c. 1585?)



Corelli: Trio Sonata Op. 2, No 12, Ciacona (1685)



Mozart - "Dissonance" String Quartet, K. 465, Andante Cantabile (1785)



Dvorak - Symphony No. 7 (1885)



Rutter: Requiem - Pie Jesu (1985)




Have a great Sunday, everyone.

Here's a short one. I wonder if anyone here is old enough to remember this show?



Very talented guy!

Seriously, even I would have showed up if this was meant for me lol laugh laugh

It's quite incredible to see our new contender getting the spirit of RST so quickly!!! Bravo, fizikisto thumb

I'm really really happy and excited to have our famous Sunday Classicals back! Thanks a lot Richard, Griffin, and of course, our new contender smile While Griffin prepares his selections for us let me add some in between smile

Let's have some Beethoven first:



Then these beautiful prelude and fugue by Shostakovich, in his own interpretation:



And this wonderful Piano Trio by Jean Sibelius:



That's all for now. Enjoy!

Welcome back Rupak! I'm looking forward to listening to your posts a bit later. I'm still doing a family activity. However, I've managed to slip away and offer these pieces.

BWV 572 - Fantasia In G major by J.S. Bach



Vivaldi:  Dixit dominus RV 594- sicut erat in principio
The last three minutes are blank. The piece is over when you see a blank screen.


That's all for now! smile

What a great weekend that was, especially with Rupak showing up and adding some great stuff.

I'm still not finished the Corr's - but helpfully, YouTube seems to remember where I last got to these days. I'm over halfway now. I never really listened to them before so I was quite surprised to find a lot of it familiar.

But I'm caught up with everything else - even my own rather bulky postings.

I'm pretty sure the Perpetuum choir has been posted before in this thread but it was great to hear it again. I had to give it a couple of listens! The thunder and rain really is fabulous.

So, Ricardo, where are you? Hung over at La Chumbera? That was the scene of my first excursion with drugs and drink combined. Cannabis mixed with the eponymous cocktails! What did they make them with? Do they still make them and is the recipe known? I haven't had one since the late seventies!

Here's some Monday morning passion.

Hi everyone! What wonderful musical selections on Sunday. I'm looking forward to doing it again. Rupak, it was particularly nice to see you back with those wonderful selections.

Today I've decided to share a little blues. Here's a favorite by John Lee Hooker.

Wow, I just saw that my previous post on another thread was post #499. I thought I'd come here to join club 500 smile

Love the audience reaction to this one. I won't be surprised if this has been posted here before, but even if so it's worth a repost. smile

My my how the pace has picked up over here. Hello, and thanks for all the great tunes.

I can't believe I almost listened to the entire Norton 500 Video, Richard. I believe the Development begins right around the 1:08 minute mark. I could be off. I'm a bit rusty.

Loved the Piazzolla particularly, a while back. So many ideas of great tunes I've been out of touch with for so long. The Paul Simon for one ... excellent. Here's a slice from the 1974 ...

Hi Greener
Great classic song! I've been home this week with an awful cold. Haven't been able to practice much myself, but I have been listening to a lot of music. Glad to have this thread to play around in. smile

One of my favorite instruments to listen to is the weissenborn style guitar. In addition to the hollow body found on a normal acoustic guitar, it has a hollow neck which gives it a dreamier sound (for want of a better description). It's generally played hawaiian style (on the lap with a steel rod, aka a noter, used to fret the cords). I had actually never heard of it before, but I stumbled onto some youtube videos a couple of years ago and goodness those things sure have a sweet sound!

Hello fizikisto,

At last I know the name of that type of guitar. I was watching a Ben Harper video and my wife asked me what type of guitar he was playing and I had no idea. Now I know. Thank you. Definitely a mellow, laid back sound. Very nice.
I have also heard it in some of the Allison Krauss and Union Station pieces.

Blimey, it's like the olds days!

Nice to see you again, KeysAngler. It's been a long, long, long,...long time!

Sorry about the bike everyone. No, it's not mine. But I do go on like it! smile

While we're in guitar mode...

Indeed, this joint is jumpin! It's so good to see all of these great music offerings.

KeysAngler, how can you go wrong with the combination of Oscar Peterson and Count Basie?

Here's my offering for today. The mellow sounds of Herbie Hancock. Enjoy!
