Leonard Bernstein's Young People's Concerts: With the New York Philharmonic

Loading...
Leonard Bernstein earned glory as a composer, conductor, and pianist (classical and jazz), but nothing gave him more pleasure than the joy of teaching. He presented the unique blend of spoken words and music. He is an intensely interactive teacher, getting his audience to sing, springing a quiz full of trick questions. He can take the most abstruse subject and present them to a young audience with clarity, without condescension, and with a clear sense of the material's value. His subject-matter is enormously varied.

Eine Alpensinfonie, Op. 64 [electronic resource]: Documentary

Loading...
Despite its title, the Alpine Symphony is not a symphony in the generally accepted sense of the word. It is a 'tone poem', a musical form which Strauss specialized in for about 20 years of his life. The German author and Strauss specialist Habakuk Traber explains the concept of the work and the story behind: a story of a human life, with its jollity, its fear, its glory, beginning and ending in darkness.

Andris Nelsons Conducts Strauss and Brahms: Macbeth, Op. 23

Loading...
In 2014, Strauss's birth 150 years ago is being commemorated. Strauss was a champion of the symphonic poem, and one of his first works in that genre was Macbeth. Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche followed soon after, fully revealing Strauss's mastery in the sharp melodic characterisations and brilliant instrumentation. With its energetic and cheerful character (despite Till's execution, which is vividly depicted in the music), the work complements Brahms's Symphony No. 2, which is imbued with a sunny, lush atmosphere. The brilliance of the grand finale is a quality rarely heard in Brahms's.
