In my village some people took the initiative to make artistic graffiti of some composers because some streets had the name of these composers like Bachstreet, Beethovenstreet, Chopinstreet, Mozartstreet. Nobody spoils the drawings who last here for 1 year. This is the result of this tunnel, named after our king (here still prince)Willem Alexander.
My correspondence with Naxos about recording pupil concertos, and statistics supporting why they shouldAugust 9, 2014 03:48
I wrote an email to Naxos because a lot of pupil concertos have never been recorded, and I received a reaction of Naxos-founder Klaus Heymann First, on his wikipage are three quotes:
1. "Over the years, Heymann led the label to not only record the standard classical repertoire, but also to focus on works that were not often recorded, or not at all. The company is "still filling gaps in the repertoire.""
2. "He sees the future of the classical music market as a mix of CDs, downloads and streaming: 'Whether physical product will be a half of today or a third of today, nobody knows. There will also be downloads, and all kinds of subscription things. Our streaming classical-music library right now is by far the most successful in our field, and the most profitable for us and for the labels. But there may be others that mix paid and unpaid [streaming].'"
3. "Heymann's strategy is to be 'the last man standing in terms of distributing classical music in physical form.'" (Perhaps an idea for an interview for Laurie after last Weekend vote about buying classical cd's)
Here his short reaction on my long e-mail here below:
"...in principle, this is a good idea and we will see how to realise it,
I made a thinking mistake, because when you type "Rieding" in Youtube you easily find my movies, but when you type "Beethoven violin concerto" you find one movement of it on page 3 after 30 or 40 other movies of the (often complete) violin concerto of Beethoven.
Here is my original e-mail, from me to Naxos. It has some statistics from my Youtube channel, as well.
It is difficult to write a short email if you want to give a lot of background information after some research, but I discovered that a lot of student violin concertos have never been recorded. I talked about it with my violinteacher and she admitted that it would be good for her children violinpupils when she could say: listen to that student concerto, and then you know how to play it.
The easiest is to make CDs with violin and piano because a lot of pupils play these concertos with their violin teacher or with one of their parents at home. Sometimes they play one movement with orchestra while other pupils play the other scores and some parents viola and cello. For violinpupils it is the perfect birthday- and Christmas gift.
The recordings, which are on the market, I have put down under this email and also the violin concertos my violin teacher often use, who are (or are not) part of the list of the Easy Concerto’s and Concertino’s, scanned also down under this email.
I have a Youtube channel with a lot of violin concertos (and pieces for violin + piano) with --
You should think iron repertoire would be popular, but a movement Mendelssohn and Tsajkovsky, you only can find at 29 and 30. One rarity is the 3th Paganini part of a movement , but the student violin concertos are the most popular, although a lot are not available on regular cd’s and you can not download them from I-tunes or Emusic. It is funny to see that too-often-played and too-often-recorded iron violin concertos are not popular on my channel. 29) Mendelssohn in e is 183 times relaesed on a cd
