The symphony itself is amazing and Sting's narration superb. BUT the sound on the mp3 ver is TERRIBLE which is really disappointing. I remember listening to this symphony as a kid and I was looking forward to sharing it with my grandchildren.
This is a unbelievable collaboration between pop culture and high culture! Sting is know for his awesome vocals, but its nice to just hear him perform the spoken word. Combine that with Prokofiev's classic Peter and the Wolf and now you have magic!
I teach piano at a liberal arts University in SC. The narrator for this recording of Peter and the Wolf is my favorite - and I have several recordings of the Prokofiev work. I wish my children to love classical melody - this helps!
The popular performances here hardly need another review. Clara Haskil had a superb feel and conception for Mozart, and her recordings of the concertos are for me unsurpassed. Of unique note here is no. 19, which may not be one of the best known, but in her hands, it should be. Her combination of subtle lyricism and unforced rhythmic energy bring it to life. The CD transfer, alas, is a muddled disaster (at least with respect to the concertos -- the sonata fares better), and Ms. Haskil's attractive tone, so clear on the original LP, is lost. Fortunately, the eight or so other Haskil CDs I have are much better in this regard, and these particular recordings have been issued elsewhere. If I search a better version, I'll submit another review.
Haskil is the excellent Mozart musical imagination with new approach and extraordinary touch. Fricsay takes tempi as it should be: breathing with music. His approach of taking slower tempi which are rare to hear these days are done with impulse , dynamic and consequently: life. The 19th concerto in the recording is superb and certainly the words: transcendence, creation or re-creation could apply. Both two interprets are using various colorations to underline cumulating musical points with deep understanding and in excellent "natural" harmony of inspiration. At the same time their deep thinking in their interpretation does not interfere with the flow of the notes but only enriched them. The aesthetic choice and the responses between the piano and the orchestra are certainly one of most convincing dialogue in Mozart oeuvre interpretation. Each musician breaths with melody and are inspired by each note and by each other like in a conversation but without imposing an absolute. The meeting of these two actors make the best context to serve melody with lyrical and emotional climate but without being sentimental. It is a rare moment when everything is artistically so just that between the composer, the orchestra and the pianist they form ONE. Haskil is astonishingly modern in her approach creating to the listener an aim of rarely surpassed musical clarity and inspiration.
Clara Haskil's performances of Mozart are unequaled. Mozart's Piano Sonata No. 2 (K 280) Is very special. DG has the best sound quality of Clara Haskil, but her performances were so amazing that they are ethereal on recordings with sound quality that is not as good.
I am a amazing fan of Clara Haskil, when as a student I heard her on her habitual free piano solo performances (Mozart) in Zurich, a longtime ago even if she was already quite old (white hair and frail), giving me shiverings down my r me she still is The Mozart Piano interpreter.
I don't know why a brilliant young Romanian pianist chose to rename herself Clara Haskil. There is, however, no confusion about her remarkable talent at the piano, talent she was already showing when very,very young. I confidently rate this as a five star performance. It is so sad that recording techniques in use at the time she was active are such a pale shadow of those available today for pianists such as Pletnev. His recordings capture the full beauty of the instrument he is playing.
the first movement of this #19 is taken fairly slowly c.f. its marking- more lyrical than march-like Compare it with Peter Serkin/Schneider who take it more quickly and at the desigmated tempo. But I warm to it less than to this Haskil #19 and that of Rudolf Serkin/George Szell. In her #19, One hears Haskil's relatively relaxed but absolutely controlled reading. She suffered from scene fright (// Clifford Curzon), which I think caused occasional rushing for Haskil and memory lapses for Curzon) But she shared friendship with Fricsay and Igor Markevitch, and while it didn't prevent occasional rushing in her amazing DG #20 w/ Fricsay. it may have helped produce the two greatest concerto couplings of her truncated recording career: #s 20 and 24 w/ Markevitch and ths Fricsay 19 and 27.Her piano tone was full and gleaming, and she played with an apparent ease and total control probably derived from long mastery of the scores. Test #19/3 and 27/2 and 3. 19/3 is taken quickly and quite vigorously; the 27/2 cantilena is extremely attractive but ambiguity is rife in #27, especially in the sadness and regret (fully dramatized by Haskil) lurking in the childlike principle theme which reapperars ( or originates) in the song k 596: "longing for the spring". ( this concerto was on the turntable of the heroine of "Sophie's Choice" preceding her suicide). At any rate, Haskil's readings are the permananent hallmarks for these concerti, though others have left amazing ers: #19- Serkin/Szell/Sony, Larrocha/Segal/Decca, Brendel/Marriner/Philips, Pollini/Bohm/DG, Haebler/Rowicki/Philips #27-Serkin/Ormandy/Sony, Peter Serkin/Silverstein, Bogner/Ristenpart, Haebler/Galliera/Philips, Curzon/Kubelik/Orfeo + Szell/VPO
Clara Haskil was an extraordinary artist. She represents Mozart spirit per excellence. Her nuance, rapture and absolute domain of the Mozartian language is more than obvious when you listen very carefully every one of her various interpretations. In the case of the Concert No. 19 , a minor Concert in the universe of Mozart's Giants Piano Concertos, she extracts all the possible essence , giving to this Rhapsodic Concert the Operatic hero so well accented in the latest movement. But realize as she elevates this Andante to unimaginable spite the fact she played some Mozart piano Concertos with Markevitch, she established with Ferenc Fricsay an invisible and evident rapport you miss in Igor.Honesty, conviction and above all a profound devotion for Mozart is something you can not dissimulate , you have or not , but you never can mask behind the the case of this Concert 27, one of my eternal favorites Concerts by its wholeness , so well written, with such expressiveness, warmth and joy of living hero is a true tramp for most of the interpreters. Mozart looks beyond its own time and seems to be thinking in another universe, light years ahead your colleagues. The First Movement is true jewel . full of that apparent sweetness surrounded of majesty, serene eloquence and perpetual mystery. The bars fall with the precise intonation, she emphasizes with such dynamism every note , her pianissimos, mezzo fortes and fortes are never out of place. She seemed to know so well the Mozartian spirit as such a few number of pianists in the story. Listen her cadenza played with rapture, delicacy and energy.When you listen to the Andante you are immediately carried to another level , it looks like exaggerate but test with her. The slender arpeggios and the brightness of her phrasing is simply overwhelming and admirable. Fricsay accompanies her with excellent results. The melody breaths with such elegance and conviction without later effects. She drowns in these waters with that accuracy certainness, and purity that it results for you almost impossible not feeling it. When she makes the repeats of the first motive , she makes a slender rubato employing the pedal with velvet ly in the Third movement , Fricsay, Haskill and the whole orchestra display their best gifts. The invisible chemistry between all the members create of this so operatic introduction flows with discrete steps. They hold the austere atmosphere from the first bars, maintaining a slow tempo that progressively grows in intensity, never forced and the grace and humor never shades the hidden Ace of despair behind the apparent and radiant spirit of the principal theme announced by the piano. In the second theme the anguish empowers of the piano, the dialogue with the Orchestra keeps going and the piano gives the respond and the orchestra accompanies to this conclusion in which the short cadenza appears resuming both themes. Haskill attacks the music and revitalizes the joyful motive with minor intensity than before, and the surprise appears when the piano and the Orchestra join again making an Imperial e Sonata is magnificent played with that touch of class slenderness The adagio is simply outstanding. Her fingers make and recreate at the same time she plays. That is the true difference between Haskil and the rest of the is a legendary and supreme recording that it's almost an imperative for you to have it.
This is a unbelievable CD of Mozart's piano melody by Clara Haskil, with the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Ferenc Fricsay. Haskil tackles the 19th Concerto, one of Mozart's greatest, with glowing results, and Mozart's final 27th concerto is also captured beautifully, and in particular the mood of the finale. The recordings of the two piano concertos are both in mono, but they sound magnificent. The final piece, Piano Sonata K280, is a stereo recording from 1960, and it was Haskil's final session for DG. (She died six months later as a effect of a fall at the Brussels-Midi railway station.) As the editorial review states, Clara Haskil may have been a connoisseur's pianist, but allow me tell you, I'm no connoisseur (though I aspire to be) and I love this disc.
This is a CD that finds its method into the my player in the depths of despair. In the darkest of hours, coldest of winters, it illuminates the room and warms the soul. I search it exceedingly hard to add anymore to the previous reviewers' words except the version have I encountered a more perfectly created recording.
This CD with the Guarneri Quartet is simply incredible! Their playing in the D Major Quartet is stunningly attractive and heartfelt especially in the middle movements, full of joy in the first movement, devil-may-care fast in the latest movement, and refreshingly honest throughout. The Octet with the Orion Quartet is related in its approach to details, attractive tone colors and turns of phrases, and overall unbelievable and solid playing. This is a unbelievable CD and I have often given this as a bonus to mates and family. Highly recommended!!!
In the Quartet, movement 1 is exciting. In movement 2 the slow introduction is a beautiful music repeated several times with slight alterations. A second music enters, then the first music returns, completing the ternary form. Movement 3 has nothing to say. Movement 4 tries hard to whip up enthusiasm but fails. The Octet is much better than the Quartet. Movement 1, both strong and beautiful, is worthy of Brahms. In movement 2, once again simple, beautiful melodies are built into something grand. In movement 3 the performers propel this scherzo so that it really MOVES. Movement 4 is almost a strong extension of the rapid scherzo. Counterpoint adds excitement. This performance of the Octet is magnificent. I love movements 1 & 2 of the Quartet and all of the Octet.
I must say the Guarneri Quartet continues to blow me away I hear them. For that reason this recording of Mendelssohn's 3rd Quartet sizzles. Maybe part of it is due to the fabled power of the Guarneri's instruments, but the string attacks and blend they obtain as a group are amazing! The disappointment for me comes from the Octet- (started by the precocious Mendelssohn at age 15). If i had not heard the Cleveland Quartet Recording first, I probably would rate this one higher, but there is a lack of nuance and tempi in certain locations which the Guarneri roll over. I realize these are subjective and private interpretations, but when you hear a recording of the Octet which brings you to a certain emotional height, other recordings seem to disappoint. The Guarneri recording gets a thumbs up for programming it w/ the 3rd Quartet, but if you wish to hear BOTH of Mendelssohn's Octets obtain the Cleveland Quartet recording!
I have heard this record 3 times, twice on the same e octet is a amazing work and shows the genius of Mendelssohn. Performance is excellentI heard on tuesday the Orion Strin Quartet in NYC performing the Beethoven string quartets. The recording makes justice to their abilityHighly recomended
Really quite poor. Regularly out of sync with the PC ver and provides outdated and misleading balance information. Interface and website navigation are not good with a fair degree of digging needed to search what you need. I would not rely on it for anything other than a rough estimate. Can hang even with full wireless connection signal. All in all really quite basic. ..added after response... re your response...."Thank you for the platitude"
shame you cant select a period instead of calendar months being selected. Im paid monthly but not on the 1st, so I cant use this as a monthly spending tracker. The balance info is also inaccurate. When paying by card, the balance reflects the debit straight away but it then credits it back on the acc when the card payment hasn't completed in a couple of days. This subsequently debits again when it does complete, so you cant trust it to budget with.
Amazing as far as online banking goes, can be slightly confusing about how to navigate. But user friendly at the same time. would recommend to developers the ability to sort by transfer out. if you created a recurring payment to a listed person, it would be nice to see all transactions for that person's. overall amazing online service
Generally beautiful good, but has recently started stopping me making transfers 'because you've got a screen overlay running' despite all the apps on my phone having screen overlays disabled. Still having the same issue (on Android device Pie) which means half the application is useless to me.
Easy and simple to use, now have paperless statements. Transferring cash between accounts is child's play, simple to hold track of in goings and out goings. Edit... had to factory restart my phone and reinstall the B app. Had to re-enter my info but the application won't let this, hold getting the message, "oops something went wrong, can you re-enter your details?" I don't know my customer reference number so opt for the other info entry selection and hold going round in circles. Frustrating!
fairly good. somethings aren't available or easily explained. Can't cancel direct debits. Also the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. I paid off my credit card bill early. Then the bank proceeded to take payment out aswell. I then had to phone the bank (for 10-15mins on my break at work)to obtain my acc credited.
Terrible. historical transactions being taken from my balance days later, as a parent on benefits this has left me destitute and I have submitted a complaint as now we are minus £70 so you will be taking the bulk of my £100 tax credits ??? shouldn't be allowed. no need for the generic response you have given to everyone else here !! Much easier for me to leave for a bank that updates balances in true time. there really is no excuse in this day and age for not doing this. would give zero stars.
Application is very primary and the bank is having problem accepting payments transfer from other banks. Payments just disappear and unknown DD remove money. Very not good and worrying. When you test and enquire the customer services are completely unhelpful. Ask you to visit a branch, which for me, is over 80 miles away.
Having issues with it from day 1. My funds disappeared and I've noticed unauthorized direct debits. Then no trace of the funds. Called several times and the lady couldn't support me, she said her supervisor said I need to go to branch. What's the point of having internet banking... Terrible.
Really amazing app, simple to use and makes managing your cash so simple. Only things I would improve - create the [email protected] application available on android device and have the full functionality available on iPad available on iPhone and android. Otherwise, amazing banking application that myself and most of my mates have switched to using.
it's alright but it always says I need to disable the screen overlay, I disabled all but one because I can't disable the system. I've uninstalled it then re-installed the app, restart my phone and even tried force stopping the usual apps that dose the screen overlay like messenger but nothing, needless to say I can only access my bank through the browser witch is a nightmare.
For the most part, the lessons are organized in a coherent matter, with difficultly increasing as the student gains mastery over one of the most difficult instruments to learn. (It was about 6 months before I'm able to play C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C with any semblance of actually sounding those notes.)One down side to this book is that it is very beginner-oriented, meaning it's created young people who may lack the obsessiveness of older students (e.g., their parents may be making them take lessons). The book is designed to support achieve that mastery in a year's such, my instructor gave me lip slur exercises, which he says will support me advance much faster and further than following the book can obtain you. For instance, it took about two months for me to do lip slurs with competence, not having to think about it anymore. If you follow the book, it will take you a lot longer (perhaps even never...I never did see any true lip slup exercises except for one little section...)For example, the lip slur is actually disguised as easy pieces you play. You have to change embouchure in a heartbeat (e.g., E to A or C to G). It would have been more helpful if there were lip slur exercise (e.g, C-G; D, G; E, A; B, F#, etc). That way, you also learn to play the notes and memorize the fingering at the same time. It's a lot harder to do so when you're playing melody with notes that change and no intense true lip-slurring built into it.
This book brings back a lot of memories of middle school band. I learned a lot from this series of books and am now again learning as an adult. I search it funny that the voice for the audio samples is the same as growing up -- provides a bit of nostalgia. I learned clarinet growing up with these and I'm learning trumpet quite quickly just the same. I'll admit I don't have the embrasure for what I'm able to read just yet -- but amazing quality melody with a play along track that makes it much more worth it than just playing/learning alone.
I play tuba since the 90s. I remember my Essential Elements back in the middle school. This is still a solid book to progress from and the online mp3 accompaniment definitely helps you play along with a band.
Just took up the trumpet and required a starter book. This on fits the bill. I feel like I'm back in High School Band but that is okay. East to follow and takes you one step at a time. Probably best if used with an instructor but I have self taught a lot of instruments in my life and search this a very amazing put to start. (Along with dozens of online videos.)
The book covers all of the info needed to obtain started, which contains position of the lips and the proper method to blow into the trumpet. Even though I play woodwind instruments, I learned to play trumpet a lot of years ago. After a long period of not playing and now learning to play all over again, my plan is to study each page carefully without skipping any sections or assuming knowledge of any aspect of this instrument. So far I'm learning and progressing quite well. I have used this book for other instruments as well and am quite happy with its design.
This is the exact book my son uses in his band class at school. The teacher recommended one to hold at home for practicing. He enjoys having it at the house to practice with and he'll always have it for the future too. It was in amazing condition when received.
This introductory trumpet book is amazing for first year trumpet players. There are primary steps/pictures for holding the trumpet, playing the notes, warm up activities, specific note playing and songs. It was cheaper than going through the company at school.
I bought this book to go along with the fresh trumpet for my daughter as she wanted to begin playing another instrument since she has been playing the drums for the latest several years and she can read the melody with ease which makes playing her fresh trumpet enjoyable.
My 9-year-old son is just starting to learn trumpet. I want I had this comprehensive and step-by-step fundamentals book when I was 9, in 1978, learning trumpet. I haven't played in years, but now I think I'll practice with him!!!!

I've been told so a lot of various things by so a lot of various doctors.I'm constantly ank you!
Dvorak's 3rd Symphony may not be a masterpiece, but Pesek and his Liverpoolians certainly play the it as if it were one! The early 80s digitial recording stands up well, and the "Scherzo Capriccioso" and "Carnival Overture" create enjoyable make-weights. But perhaps this recording is slightly over-shadowed by Serebrier's latest 3rd and very successful 6th (Dvorak Symphonies, No. 3 & 6).However, unlike the previous reviewer, I prefer Pesek over Rowicki in this repertorie. Highly recommended.
Tens of thousands of students have begun their journey in melody from their first day in a beginning band class with this method, for over 50 years. The beginning student needs three things: A amazing instrument, a amazing teacher and a thorough written reference that doesn't overwhelm. This gets the notes under the fingers with short familiar tunes that incrementally progress the student's development.
Bought these for jewelry making. They had a rough edge all around the sides, and the flat part was not polished. I had to sand down flat the edges and sand and polish the inside flat surface until it was smooth like it's supposed to be. I bought 2 pair, one pair closed all the method but the hints don't line up flush, the other pair doesn't close all the way. They work, but they're definitely not a precision tool and need to be sanded and finished before use like the factory should have done but didn't.
