Fnale. Presto - Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Beaux Arts Trio - Piano Trios (CD, Album)

The religious music that Chopin would have heard growing up in Poland was certainly vastly different from what he encountered in Parisian churches. Polish composers of the Baroque period wrote liturgical music based on Italian models with idiosyncrati- cally Polish elements, such as popular folk melodies, incorporated within a sophisticated contrapuntal context. The later part of the 17th century brought incessant warfare for Poland, including conflicts with Sweden, the Cossacks, and the Ottoman Turks.

These scores exhibit a gravity, seriousness, and richness all. Accustomed to the sobriety of Polish religious music, Chopin may have been discomfited by the music that he encountered in Parisian churches. Indeed, renowned opera composers created a great many of the choral pieces tailored for the lucrative market in sacred music. They felt no compunction about using their operatic styles for liturgical purposes. The ubiquity of grand opera in French religious music was curious given the revolutionary and Romantic nature of the genre.

Like the bourgeoisie who made up the congregation at La Madeleine, Chopin was a fan of all of these grand operas, even if he may have been bemused at hearing their strains sung during Mass.

The radical nature of opera occasionally burst out from the confines of the theater into the political arena. Preconcert Talk: Richard Wilson p. Robert Schumann —56 From Carnaval, Op.

At least this time, the funeral was decent; all of artistic and aristocratic Paris was present; [among] the pallbearers were [Giacomo] Meyerbeer. British critic J. He gave what proved to be his last public concert at the Salle Pleyel in Paris on February 16, That program featured the second, third, and fourth movements of a new work, his Sonata in G Minor for Cello and Piano, Op.

Chopin made copious sketches in Even during his lifetime, he was a touchstone for his contemporaries. However, according to biographer Frederick Niecks, Chopin detested Carnaval and disliked Schumann personally. Even in his songs, Rachmaninoff employs elaborate pianistic figuration derived from Chopin. Ignacy Paderewski is remembered chiefly as a virtuoso pianist and politician, but his compositions, as exemplified by the Melodie, Op.

During France, Preconcert Talk: Christopher H. Gibbs p. Fryderyk Chopin —49 Andante spianato et Grande polonaise brillante, Op. But something severed their friendship. Yet Berlioz did not even mention Chopin. His style quite quickly changed to the intimate, searching manner that we know from the preludes, nocturnes, and other mature works, and the extroverted bravura of the concertos and the polonaises was less often heard.

Performed thus at a Conservatoire de Paris concert the following year, this is one of the oddest couplings in all music, for the two pieces are entirely different in tempo, in mood, in key, and in instrumentation.

As listeners, we have long been urged by unimpeachable musical thinkers to look for the common threads that run through symphonies and sonatas in several movements, to see the overarching unity of multipartite works; we are supposed to feel satisfied by unity of key and temperament in a piece.

Chopin here defies all such beliefs by forcing us to absorb chalk and cheese, oil and water, in close succession. If each component of the work is satisfying on its own, Chopin is saying, why not together? Very probably, his response was to set certain scenes from Romeo and Juliet, but he soon put them aside and absorbed them into various works composed over the next three years. The new symphony Beaux Arts Trio - Piano Trios (CD also to be a choral symphony, using a double chorus to represent the two warring families and solo voices as secondary characters Mercutio, Friar Laurence, and the contralto soloist as commentator.

The lovers themselves were to be represented purely by the orchestra. The symphony does not enact the drama in detail and many episodes are omitted, but the resources of voices and orchestra allowed Berlioz to combine the dramatic immediacy of sung words with the infinite expressive power of instrumental music. By his side, perhaps contributing her own understanding of Shakespeare, was Harriet Smithson, who had become his wife six years earlier.

Berlioz had only seen Romeo and Juliet once, inbut he had forgotten nothing of the experience and had read the play countless times. Then the narrative is presented by a semichorus singing recitative—a very original concept—breaking off for a hint of the Queen Mab Scherzo from the tenor soloist, a few bars of the love scene, and a strophic song from the contralto soloist invoking the pains and delights of young love.

There follows a sequence of three symphonic movements. Garrick ended the play there, but Berlioz restored a final scene in which Friar Laurence explains his part in the tragedy and extorts an oath of reconciliation from the warring families in a grand sym- phonic finale.

Her father, David Smiley, was a violist with the SFS from untiland Smiley began taking violin lessons from him when she was six.

Smiley's violinist husband, Sarn Oliver, whom she met for the first time at the Music in the Mountains Festival in the early s and married inis also in the Orchestra.

This will be a remarkable evening of music performed in our acoustically wonderful hall! Pianist Eric Muhler and his San Francisco Bay Area based ensemble have been making new friends, new jazz fans, and lasting impressions everywhere they appear.

Eric's original compositions and playing virtuosity manage that most delicate and difficult of all balancing acts. It is serious music; intense, driving, complex, and multi-layered, yet accessible to a wide and varied audience.

The ensemble Album) together some of the finest, first-call players in the Bay Area, including Sheldon Brown on horns, Michael Wilcox on electric bass, and Brian Andress on drums and percussion. Eric and the band will be performing from his book of original compositions entitled Thirty Five Dreams Worth Remembering.

Some of the songs are very simple blues and swing based classic jazz and others reflect what one critics called an "exercise in tension building and suspense Some of Eric's compositions are multi-sectional scores that mutate through musical styles suggesting, Latin, Brazilian, African, gospel, rock, and blues as well as straight ahead jazz and bop. Jazz has always been full of colorful individualists, characters whose music is as unique as their lives.

Eric Muhlera pianist inspired by Keith Jarrett and McCoy Tyner but always sounding very much like himself, has had an unusual life, and the result is music that would not be mistaken for anyone else. After his older sister and brother had piano lessons but eventually quit, it was his turn. He stuck with it and had classical music lessons for 11 years, starting when he was six. However Eric, who also played clarinet and bass clarinet through eighth grade, had no plans to become a classical pianist.

We played fraternity parties, society parties, sixth grade graduations, high school dances, and any gig we could get. In the early s he co-led the jazz quintet Mobius Band with guitarist Jim Slick. Their one recording, Red Daze which has been recently reissuedfeatures Eric's originals and playing, displaying his interest in the music of Keith Jarrett, Art Lande and the ECM label in general while offering a fresh approach to jazz.

He also recorded eight of his songs as unaccompanied piano solos on Other Worlds. Inhe began a successful career working with computer animation. In Eric began a 15 year hiatus from performance to become a full-time parent, though he never forsook music. In with his daughters developing into increasingly self-sufficient teenagers, Eric returned to music.

Eric can be heard playing with his trio and quartet and occasionally solo in jazz clubs, restaurants, bars, a country club and parties in Northern California from Calistoga to San Jose. He has composed over 50 original compositions and this summer will be recording a new quartet CD featuring Sheldon Brown on saxophones that is scheduled to be released in the fall. As with his four previous recordings, all are available from his Slow Turn label.

While Eric Muhler's style remains recognizable, he has grown in depth and feeling due to his life experiences. I am not into recreating Miles Davis or bringing back bebop. Although I'm still writing complex pieces, I'm also enjoying utilizing simplicity more.

These days I only play acoustic piano, performing with a trio or a quartet rather than having a five or six piece band with percussion and guitar. I have a much broader view now of people and I'm much more accepting, which is displayed in my music. Sheldon Brown has been involved in the Bay Area creative music scene for over 20 years.
