The best concerts of the history

Postby denison rosario » Sat Feb 10, 2001 12:58 pm

<BR> (Prof Denison S. Rosário) <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>piano concert <BR> <BR>1. the three last of Beethoven they are celebérrimos, the third, the room and called " him Emperor " ,que is the fifth; <BR>All they transcended the traditional, classic language. <BR>2. the concert of Grieg is part of the repertoire, but its importance limits to the fact of Grieg to be the only point of reference of Norway, but he/she swims again, in terms of World, it happens here. <BR>3. the concert of Ravel for left hand is one of the pieces more lovers of the modern music. <BR>4. the third concert of Beautiful Bartok is still better, one of the works of rare beauty of the modern repertoire. <BR>5. Mozart composed 27 concerts for piano; the last ones ten are the largest ones you work-excel of the genius mozartiano, together with its 5 more well-known operas. <BR>6. the only concert for composed piano for Schumann is one of the most delicious and dear works of Romantismo. <BR>7. the concerts of Rachmaninov drag crowds for the rooms of concert of any part of the world, but - attention - this virtuous composer from Russia doesn't possess the level of a Stravinsky or of a Mussorgsky. <BR>8. the concerts of Bach for carnation (a lot of times played to the piano) they are magnanimous and powerful, being many of those concerts, conversions of concerts for violin of Antonio Vivaldi, the artist that more it influenced Bach. <BR>9. the two only concerts for piano of Brahms (composer more requested in the international repertoire, after Beethoven) they are beautiful, true crowns of the gender, monumental and they escape from any analytic description; obligatory! <BR>10. The first concert of Tchaikovsky is it more acquaintance of all the concerts. It will be perpetual in the repertoire. <BR>The second concert is also very good and until more intellectual, that it is less accessible and less well-known. <BR> <BR>Violin concert <BR> <BR>1. Beethoven's only concert is a masterpiece of the repertoire. <BR>2. the Four Stations and L'Estro Armonico of Vivaldi are the most well-known concerts and engravings of all the times; only the Four Stations have more than 100 different recordings to choose. A popularity absurdity! <BR>3. the concert for two violins of Bach is genius thing; very dear and acclaimed by all the Humanity. <BR>4. the largest and better written concert for violin, undoubtedly, it is the only that Brahms wrote; intellectual and fascinating jewel of the century xix and of every time. <BR>5. but it is it of Mendelssohn, the dearest, accessible concert and applauded inside by the platéia of the romantic tradition. Very beautiful. <BR>6. once again Tchaikovsky. The concert for violin of this monster of the Slavic music is a wonderful masterpiece; its place in the repertoire is as strong as the one of the first concert for piano. <BR>Concert for violoncello <BR> <BR>1. the Austrians and Frenches adored the piano, the Italians, the violin; but the cello belongs to the Slavs. The largest work for this instrument is for ever the concert of Dvorak. <BR>Essential masterpiece, fruit of a laborious and folkloric spirit. <BR>2. the two concerts for cello of Shostakovich, also a Slav, they are eternal pieces of the repertoire. They show all its grace, melodic cynicism and peculiar harmonizations. Divine. <BR>3. the concert of Elgar (English) it is acclaimed by every community melômana as one of the most important concerts for cello. <BR>4. it is lamentable that Mozart, Brahms and Beethoven have not composed yours, but Schumann made it; it is good and well written, but the concert for piano the occult of the complete fame. <BR>chamber music <BR> <BR>1. the quartets of Haydn are reference works, because this master that invented them was; and already at the beginning, it placed them in a high level. It served as model for Mozart and Beethoven. <BR>2. very good, solemn, introspective healthy Mozart's quartets, though they don't reach the extraordinary level of its quintets. <BR>3. the works of camera of Ravel possess a perfect charm. <BR>4. the music of camera of Schubert releases comment; melodious intelectualíssima, melancholic, nostalgic, as its songs, only belongs to the only universe of Schubert. <BR>5. the music of camera of Beethoven reveals, together with its Sonatas for piano, the development paulatino of a great genius of the Humanity. The trios are fantastic, the sonatas for two instruments are revolutionary, Beethoven's quartets are considered, for the specialists, its largest music and, perhaps, the largest document of music of every History of the Humanity in every time. <BR>6. the quartets of Beautiful Bartok the best are already considered written, after Beethoven; of an intelectualismo out of the normal, these quartets can be called everything, less of accessible. <BR>7. but the largest composer of camera music, considering all the possible combinations, not only the quartets, it is Brahms. <BR>The work of this master's camera forms a group indissolúvel and the most perfect, full of expression, lyricism and it structures. <BR>Lied <BR> <BR>1. I consider the songs of such important Mahler, or until more important, that its symphonies. I, particularly, prefer them. They are deep, lyrical, dense and expressive; they reveal the composer's development. Mahler agreed that its vein was more lyrical and vocal than instrumental; that the need to put voice or chorale in its symphonies. <BR>2. Schoenberg, in the century XX, with its only musicalidade, is one of the largest composers of song of all the times. <BR>3. Britten a great composer has been revealing in all the possible languages, besides in songs. <BR>4. Mendelssohn is wonderful and amusing like Mozart; actually, he/she made better songs than the master of Salsburgo. <BR>5. the songs of such big healthy Debussy and revolutionaries as its music for piano. The songs of Chausson and Fauré are what there is of best in France after Debussy. <BR>6. Hugo Wolf revolutionized the gender. <BR>7. Finzi is still a composer not very well-known, but its songs are in the recording aim of the big ones. <BR>8. Eisler got to follow the tradition schubertiana worthily. <BR>9. Brahms is one of the few composers where in all the goods it is perfect and important. He/she didn't only write operas; but who does doubt that would also make work-cousins in this gender? <BR>The songs of Brahms are very well-known and dear; they are only hidden by its instrumental music and the Requiem. <BR>10. Schumann was one of the largest song composers. <BR>Not follower of giant works, especially because its madness not <BR>it allowed a lot of concentration in works of great scale, <BR>the songs and short pieces p / piano was its expression means <BR>11. Schubert releases comments; for all the he/she will always be the largest in the gender, actually, it is only and incomparable model. <BR> <BR>Simphony <BR> <BR>1. the symphonies of Haydn possess relevance in the History of the symphonies, because it went him the first to really to develop and to define the gender, being practically its inventor. It composed more than a hundred <BR>2. the 4 symphonies of Brahms are well-known, deep and delicious; they will for ever be part of the international repertoire. <BR>3. Tchaikovsky, that after Beethoven and Brahms, he/she is the composer more requested in the concert rooms, surpassing even Mozart and Wagner in number of presentations, he/she also gave the light to wonderful symphonies, dentre the ones which, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (Patética),que is its Requiem, they are the more played. <BR>4. the Symphonies of Dvorak are jewels of the repertoire. Friday is the <BR>the Slavic master's instrumental masterpiece and the Ninth are the dear. <BR>There is not favoritism here, as there are with Sibelius or Nielsen, only composers to call the attention in its respective homelands. Dvorak and its Stabat mater, its symphonies and its concerts are Universal! <BR>5. Mahler a great sinfonista is considered in everybody the senses. Following master Bruckner's tradition, its symphonic works are giant and complex. They present texture expressionista and they are, some vocal times, other times just instrumental. Very sincere its symphonic works, that reach the level of the solemnity - biographical. <BR>6. I will get the attention for the Symphony of number 8 of Schubert, eternally incomplete and adored in the concert rooms, but also the ninth and last of the master from Vienna. <BR>7. Shostakovich is very courageous of facing the challenge of composing symphonies after monsters consecrated before him; it composed a big amount: 15 symphonies. The largest composer of symphonies of the century is considered XX. <BR>8. Eisler is still a sinfonista not very explored and well-known, but coming of the Austrian tradition, it cannot be forgotten in our modest list of the best. Its symphonies are of a wonderful eclecticism and it combines everything that was already expressed before in the gender <BR>9. using a mathematical term, the music of Bruckner contains the music of Bach and together Beethoven. Its symphonies are the widest, the most hermetic, the heaviest and morbid, the more intellectuals, never written before him. Everybody is worthily instrumental and traditional in amount of movements, but revolutionaries in weight and harmony. A Wagner of the Symphony. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>10. Finally, Beethoven! After this great sinfonista, the gender never again it was the same. The one that Schubert is for the song, Beethoven is for the symphonic gender. Not even Mozart's symphonies and Haydn were themes for intellectual discussions. <BR>Its symphonies are Corpus more celebrated Artísticus and coeso of <BR>the whole Western Art. Each one possesses its private grace, but anything he/she/it compares to Sinfonia Eróica's Revolutionary Impact, <BR>to the synthesis of Thursday, to the rhythmic grace of the Seventh and to the intelectualidade full of spirit and solidarity of the Ninth Sinfonia Coral. Anything! <BR>

You have a very complete list of works here. I can't quite take the Bartok concertos for piano or violin, although Concerto for Orchestra is one of the great works of the century. Your inclusion of (Hans?) Eisler is a surprise. He is almost unknown here. <BR>I commend you for your familiarity with so many works that take patience and effort. I would like to add 2 violin concertos: Bruch's first and the one by Sibelius. There are 2 piano works (not concertos)I would like to add: Liszt's Todtentanz, and Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain. Do you know them? Since the cello repertoire is so thin I'd add Herbert's concerto # 2, Lalo's concerto (in G?) and Bloch's Schelomo. <BR>Again, I'm impressed with your list.<BR>Shos

I am impressed with the length and depth of your list, and your intimate knowledge of so many compositions (including some that I have a tough time with, and some that I don't know at all).<BR>Shos
