Mutter / Previn

January 22, 2004 at 08:23 PM · Anyone heard the Previn Concerto yet?

It sounded like lydian mode to me, the first concerto since korngold and bartok I have heard with this kind of sound.

How about the piece "Song and Dance"?

Im intrigued with the harmony here, some know Previn plays jazz and classical, I think mixing jazz and classical is the most modern of all music...

I found some clips here:

The tango and dance clip really shows her bow technique up close, how she heavily angles the bow for the while stroke, up to the last half of the last quarter of the bow near the tip, I find that to be educational. The best part was the ruffly things on her dress though :p

What do you think of this music?

There is also a clip of the Beethoven with Mazur...

It's filled with Folk Songs and landscaping everywhere. Sigh, I'm praying for it to be published like Tango,Song, and Dance so I can play it until I drop dead! lol, I also enjoy Tango, Song, and Dance. It's a very fun piece to play with some deceptive difficulties.
