Carl Reinecke harpconcerto

June 24, 2008 23:33

We played with an amateurorchestra the harpconcerto of Reinecke. I could hardly play with my frozen shoulder, but they let me play back in the back. With Youtube everybody has the oppurtunity to hear and judge (there must be better orchestra's in the world) this unknown piece of Carl Reinecke:

Naxos has recorded the unknown Leon de Saint-Lubin
Here a piece of this good but forgotten composer on Youtube. It has 4 ratings with the maximum of 5 stars "awesome" and 4 positive comments and 407 views in 5 days.

Anastasia Khitruk recorded a CD of music by Leon de Saint-Lubin for Naxos Records. Produced in Toronto by Bonnie & Norbert Kraft

Eugene Ysaye 150 th birthday on 16- july 2008

June 17, 2008 12:55

I made a compilation video on Youtube of Ysaye of pieces I like much. Sometimes his impressionistic romantic music with different atmospheres moves you and remind you of the rainy Ardennes of Belgium. His orchestrated pieces like Poeme Elegiaque makes more impression with orchestra than with piano..

Fragments op Sonate opus 27 nr1, nr5, nr1 2th part, Poeme Elegiaque opus 12, Chants d'hivers opus 15, violinconcerto no.8 3th part, Divertimento opus 24

2 Vieuxtemps video's added on Youtube

June 4, 2008 14:42

I just added 2 Vieuxtemps video's added on Youtube.

The most beautiful slow part of a violinconcerto ever written (in my opinion) of the 7th violinconcerto of Vieuxtemps.

And a salonpiece for violin and piano with about the same photo's I made and which I found on internet with google pictures.
