I'm really surprised of what you are telling me about that interpretation of Mesiaen's quatuor: I think that this would be unthinkable in my country. Do you now that our government has recently decided to increase VAT of tickets for music concerts, theater and cinema from a 8% to a 21%?
The interpretation of Capuçon brothers is fantastic. I would like to listen to them at live. I heard that Gautier Capuçon has recently played here, in Catalonia, at the Pau Casals Festival, which takes place at El Vendrell, the town where Casals was born. The problem is that El Vendrell is quite a long way away from Barcelona and I don’t own a car, so it was impossible for me to assist to a concert that began at 22:00.
Verklärte Nacht ("Transfigured Night") by Arnold Schönberg, I like the original version for string sextet:
William Byrd was a catholic composer at an epoch when the official religion of England became Anglicanism. In spite of the prohibition to perform catholic rites in public, Byrd continued to compose some catholic masses and motets devised for private use. It's a music more self-contained that the one that was being composed at other European countries, where Catholicism was the official religion, but it's also full of mysticism and beauty. You can listen here to the Agnus Dei of the Missa a 5, performed by the Tallis Scholars, under the direction of Peter Phillips:
Great choice, Charo, it is wonderful. Byrd is one the most favorite polyphonic composers, I also like our great italian G.P.Palestrina....Tanks for this peaceful interpretation!
Hello Charo, how are you...we don't feel for a long time (ho tradotto letteralmente -non ci si sente da molto tempo- va bene?)
I have been very busy in the last months, do you listen always beautiful music? (I think yes!).
The Italian Opera is famous in all World, I think with the artistic, the Opera is our great treasure. The great Composers like Verdi, Puccini, Rossini etc., have translated with their music the true italian soul.
Today I want to propose you a beautiful ''aria'' of ''La Sonnambula'' of V.Bellini:
''Ah, non credea mirarti'', singed by our great singer Anna Moffo:
bye bye Charo, soon!
I'm very sorry for the delay in answering to you. I've been very busy lately. Since I'm not going to give any YouTube links, I'll answer to you in another section of this group.
Hello Charo, it is not problem, I really understand your choice...soon, cheers, teo.
