Episode 54: 19054 Carissima - History of Jephte

Jephte or Historia di Jephte is an important exemplar of the mid-17th-century Historia Sacra form composed by [Giacomo Carissimi] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giacomo_Carissimi) around 1650 (probably 1648), based on the story of [Jephtha] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jephtha) in the [Old Testament] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Testament) [Book of Judges] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Judges) . The work follows what is considered the classic early Baroque oratorio form with a Biblical text related by [soloists] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solo_(music)) and [chorus] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choir) linked by a [narrator] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narrator) . The only known contemporaneous score is for organ continuo alone though this is sometimes augmented in performance by violins and string bass, for which some support exists in other works by the composer.Purchase the music (without talk) at Itunes or Amazon.   Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by Uber.   @CMDHedgecock #ClassicalMusicDiscoveries  #KeepClassicalMusicAlive #LaMusicaFestival  #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice  #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans #CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain #ClassicalMusicLivesOn #Uber   Please consider supporting our show, thank you!

Episode 2: 19002 Snowdrops - Missing Island

France chamber collective Snowdrops return to Injazero Records for their third album Missing Island, a musical fresco in seven pieces, a naturalist painting that exists between contemporary classical, post-folk, and electro-acoustic music. Missing Island is the sequel to the highly acclaimed Volutes (2020), and again sees multi-instrumentalists Christine Ott and Mathieu Gabry joined by violist Anne-Irène Kempf on most tracks. This new chapter in the natural history of Snowdrops is lent an earthier texture by the hand-pumped organ, performed by Christine Ott when she's not playing ondes Martenot. Tracklist: 1. Retour à la terre 2. Firebirds 3. Land Of Waves 4. Nostalgia de la Luz 5. Radioactive Breath 6. Comme un souffle qui vient 7.

Episode 50: 19050 Cavalieri - Portrayal of the Soul and the Body

Rappresentatione di anima et di corpo (Portrayal of the Soul and the Body) is a musical work by [Emilio de' Cavalieri] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emilio_de%27_Cavalieri) to a libretto by Agostino Manni (1548-1618). With it, Cavalieri regarded himself as the composer of the first [opera] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opera) or [oratorio] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oratorio) . Whether he was actually the first is subject to some academic debate, as is whether the work is better categorized as an opera or an oratorio. It was first performed in Rome in February 1600 in the [Oratorio dei Filippini] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oratorio_dei_Filippini) adjacent to the church of [Santa Maria in Vallicella] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Maria_in_Vallicella) .Purchase the music (without talk) at Itunes or Amazon.   Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by Uber.   @CMDHedgecock #ClassicalMusicDiscoveries  #KeepClassicalMusicAlive #LaMusicaFestival  #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice  #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans #CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain #ClassicalMusicLivesOn #Uber   Please consider supporting our show, thank you!

Episode 47: 19047 New York Pretending to Be Paris

Eric Schorr writes…..My journey began several years ago when I began to read what would turn out to be many hundreds of contemporary poems with an eye (and ear) toward selecting just a few to turn into art songs. I started with the work of poets with whom I was already familiar. But I quickly branched out. I spent days in New York City’s unique Poets House, where I randomly selected volumes from the shelves of its vast collection. Wherever I traveled I sought out poetry bookshops, like the wonderful Grolier in Cambridge, Massachusetts. And of course, publications like The New Yorker, Poetry, The New York Review of Books, and The New Criterion were excellent sources. I happily went down many rabbit holes — a poet friend would recommend favorite poets, who would recommend others, and so on. In the end, I emerged with a satisfying, if very eclectic, collection.Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by Uber.   @CMDHedgecock #ClassicalMusicDiscoveries  #KeepClassicalMusicAlive #LaMusicaFestival  #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice  #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans #CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain #ClassicalMusicLivesOn #Uber   Please consider supporting our show, thank you!

This album strives to understand the varying ways composers comprehend grief, loss, and death. How do they cope, their hearts broken, their peace gone? And how can we cope?

Episode 43: 19043 Ben-Haim: Symphony No. 1

Shani’s eloquent interpretation of the symphony highlights the contrasting moods of this three-movement work. Under his baton, the orchestra conveys every last spark of the intense, restless energy of its outer movements, whose turbulence reflects the wartime backdrop against which the symphony was written. Creating an oasis of calm between the two, the conductor and orchestra give a wonderfully lyrical reading of the central slow movement, which quotes part of a traditional song from the Persian Jewish community that Ben-Haim had recently arranged for pioneering Israeli folk singer Bracha Tzfira.Purchase the music (without talk) at: [Paul Ben-Haim: Symphony No. 1 (classicalmusicdiscoveries.store)] (http://www.classicalmusicdiscoveries.store/store/p1744/Paul_Ben-Haim%3A_Symphony_No._1.html) Your purchase helps to support our show!   Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival and Uber.   @CMDHedgecock #ClassicalMusicDiscoveries  #KeepClassicalMusicAlive #LaMusicaFestival  #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice  #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans #CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain #ClassicalMusicLivesOn #Uber   Please consider supporting our show, thank you!

Episode 41: 19041 Insprited by TAR

Cate Blanchett can be heard on the album conducting rehearsals of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony (as Lydia Tár) with great skill. She describes her collaboration with the Dresdner Philharmonie and its concertmaster Wolfgang Hentrich as “a great, and life-changing, privilege”. “How truly blessed I am,” adds Blanchett, “to have my name appear anywhere near this ridiculously talented assembly of musicians.” Her skill as a pianist is on evidence here too, as she performs a Prelude from Bach’s Well-tempered Clavier as part of one of Lydia’s teaching sessions.  Purchase the music (without talk) at: [Inspired by the movie TAR (classicalmusicdiscoveries.store)] (http://www.classicalmusicdiscoveries.store/store/p1742/Inspired_by_the_movie_TAR.html) Your purchase helps to support our show!   Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival and Uber.   @CMDHedgecock #ClassicalMusicDiscoveries  #KeepClassicalMusicAlive #LaMusicaFestival  #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice  #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans #CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain #ClassicalMusicLivesOn #Uber   Please consider supporting our show, thank you!

Episode 40: 19040 Dvorak - Poetic Tone Pictures

The 13 postcards for piano that make up Dvorák’s Poetic Tone Pictures were written in the Spring of 1889, and signal a shift in style from a composer moving away from formal constructions towards a freer, inspired aesthetic. Among these charming pieces are evocations of magic and mystery (‘The Old Castle’), rustic dances (‘Furiant’ and ‘Peasant Ballad’), nostalgic mood pieces (‘Twilight Way’), and tragic reminiscences (‘At a Hero’s Grave’). The works range from the deeply profound to the playful, from lighthearted to furious - ‘I feel a very strong, wonderful narrative in them,’ says Leif Ove Andsnes, who firmly believes Dvorák conceived the pieces of this ‘exceptional’ set as a cycle to be played together.Purchase the music (without talk) at: [Dvorak: Poetic Tone Pictures (classicalmusicdiscoveries.store)] (http://www.classicalmusicdiscoveries.store/store/p1740/Dvorak%3A_Poetic_Tone_Pictures.html) Your purchase helps to support our show!   Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival and Uber.   @CMDHedgecock #ClassicalMusicDiscoveries  #KeepClassicalMusicAlive #LaMusicaFestival  #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice  #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans #CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain #ClassicalMusicLivesOn #Uber   Please consider supporting our show, thank you!

Episode 39: 19039 Duality

I’m fascinated by human psychology and my passion for this field of study has helped me understand the dualism that has always been part of the way I express myself musically,” explains the artist. “On my previous albums, the emotional world of the piano and the more cognitive world of electronic music have fused together to create new sonic perspectives and a crossover between neo-classical and pop, with magical elements drawn from film soundtracks, a certain kind of club scene, fantasy movies and Romanticism. For my latest project, I decided to focus on the two different aspects as if they were being influenced by the different hemispheres of my brain. Black and White, Electronic Music, and Piano. The two extremes of my musical and artistic imagination as Dardust.” Purchase the music (without talk) at: [Duality (classicalmusicdiscoveries.store)] (http://www.classicalmusicdiscoveries.store/store/p1739/Duality.html) Your purchase helps to support our show!   Classical Music Discoveries is sponsored by La Musica International Chamber Music Festival and Uber.   @CMDHedgecock #ClassicalMusicDiscoveries  #KeepClassicalMusicAlive #LaMusicaFestival  #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofVenice  #CMDParisPhilharmonicinOrléans #CMDGermanOperaCompanyofBerlin #CMDGrandOperaCompanyofBarcelonaSpain #ClassicalMusicLivesOn #Uber   Please consider supporting our show, thank you!
