A guy told me that La campanella was composed by Liszt
I just only said him that he only made a version but he answered me no
I don't know what to do at this type of situation
All this comes from a video from Yundi Li, the video was called Yundi Li: La campanella, I said him that the title of the video is disrespectful because the name of the composer must be first, because people can believe that La campanella was composed by Yundi Li
Then the guy said me that the name of the composer was in the description of the video, I read the description and it says ( Yundi Li plays Liszt: La campanella )
I said him that the description is wrong, the description must be "Paganini: La campanella (Liszt)" and then is when I said that La campanella was composed by Liszt
This is the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qiJcXAuOMNU
Just be polite. We've all made mistakes.
No, La Campanella was first composed in 1826 by Paganini as a Rondo for the last movement of his second violin concerto. In 1838 Liszt wrote an etude based on the theme and revised it in 1851, also called La Campanella. In my second year at Senior School the entirely self-taught Dicky Juniper played the Liszt for the House Music competition, but he had his foot on the accelerator so only came second to oboist Anthony Camden (I came 3rd with the slow movement of the Purcell G minor, followed by the second movement of the Handel E major - They didn't really belong together, but that's what I wanted to play, I should have transposed one of the movements to make them fit together better - not that it would have made any difference to the ranking). I only became aware of the Paganini in recent years.
I know the feeling. The other day a guy told me that volcanoes produce more carbon dioxide than human activity. All you can do is shrug and walk away.
I know the feeling too. I met a guy who refused to believe that daylight savings time causes global warming. It's the extra hour of sunlight, obviously. Some people?
Hmmm it's probably true that one volcano produces more CO2 than one person.
neck his ass
Erik --> Snopes?
It is the third movement of Paganini's concerto N.2 in b minor, but this movement is more known by others.
Liszt butchered many pieces, not only La Campanella.
“Mark wrote: daylight savings time causes global warming... It’s the extra hour of sunlight” .... and as you most certainly know that’s because the earth is flat contrary to everyone’s belief. Yep, some people just won’t admit the obvious.
There are other musical mistakes that have had longer legs than I think they should they should, for examples:
Or Liszt's transcription of anything?
Beethoven's Pft Conc No 6 (the violin concerto's piano version, which I believe was commissioned, so perhaps B. cannot be entirely blamed) is rarely performed, and recorded performances are few and far between. I wonder why. The answer is to find a recording, listen to it and you'll know. Don't blame the performers, who are only doing their professional job!
I've never heard the piano transcription of the violin concerto and, to be honest, I have no desire to.
Paul, I think that’s true regarding volcanos, I’ve read it in several publications. Also, water vapor is several times as powerful a greenhouse gas as CO2. So, we should really stop boiling food for our own safety.....
I've heard both things I've commented on (and heard and played the originals) which is why I did.
Well... the best version I've heard is this one by Kissin:
According to my non-musician neighbour, since I am still working on etudes I am clearly not ready for any "real music". I just nodded politely and went to practise my concerto.
Don't you love it when non-musicians "helpfully" offer their most valuable insights?
Jason, a good summary of the volcano myth appeared a while back in
Beethoven wrote a cadenza for the piano version. It’s worth listening to.
Nothing wrong with transcriptions. I personally don't consider myself "too good" for them. Love them, actually-one can love and appreciate high art without taking it-or oneself-too seriously.
Remember that Liszt also transcribed the Beethoven symphonies for piano. Hopefully no-one would contend that, for instance, the 5th symphony is 'by Liszt'.
Indeed, Paul. That’s one important reason why if you start your car you should let it get up to normal temperature to evaporate any condensate and prevent premature exhaust system rust.
Ravel's astonishing orchestral transcription of Mussorgsky's piano suite "Pictures at an Exhibition". We performed it a couple of weeks ago; exciting music but certainly not easy. I found the best way to get to grips with the complexities of Ravel's score was to listen to Mussorgsky's original piano version a few times first.
I don't think The Grand Gate of Kiev succeeds in Ravel's orchestral version - Repeating the notes of the tune with increasing frequency only means something if done on a percussive instrument like the piano - It means nothing done with an orchestra, and if Mussorgsky had written it for orchestra, I'm sure he would not have done it that way.
