Frau Goebbels and Herr Himmler did their utmost to achieve the impossible: Ruin a piece by JSB. They would have succeeded too, were it not for subtle sabotage by some members of the Dachau-Theresienstadt Symphony Orchestra. I felt a bit sorry for Anne Frank. She was so pissed off with having to participate in this "Proof that Bach would have been a Nazi were he alive today" show that she almost managed to saw her viola in half.

Wondering if listening to the sound only would improve the experience, I clicked to another tab. Yes, it did, but I could still hear an imitation of the sound of soldiers goose-stepping down the Ku'damm. Almost made it to the end of the first movement before I gave up and reached for the first CD with the harpsichord version to disinfect the speakers and settle my mind back down. Raymond Leppard and the English Chamber Orchestra came to the rescue. Woooohoooooohoooooohoooooo

But the Adagio (at about 9mins) was pretty good I thought. Frankfurt Radio Orchestra is obviously a bit of a scratch band, but they start to pay more attention as they go on, throwing themselves into the Saint-Sans by the time they reach that iconic finale.

Heh. :)

You might also like this movie about Jean de Sainte-Colombe and Jean de Sainte-Colombe. Not a great detail about the personal lives of either is known, so a lot of it is a product of the imagination. The music, however, is as per score, and the score is performed by Jordi Savall, Monserrat Figueras, Mari-Cristina Kiehr, Christophe Coin, Jérôme Hantaï , Rolf Lislevand and Pierre Hantaï.

I have the DVD with English subtitles, but could not find that version on the innerwebs. Some of the music is also available on CD.

Unfortunately Vimeo doesn't seem to want to play nicely with my browsers on Linux. Harrumph!

In the meantime, Varvara Kutuzova doing Revel justice...

Weird. Firefox has no problem handling Vimeo videos on my Linux (Mint) desktop.

I have not listened to Ravel for decades because I did not appreciate his music then. I do now, so thanks for reintroducing it to me. This particular piece reminds me of Stravinski's piano rendition of Petruschka.

Yeah, I was worrying that I was getting into the obsessive collecting thing that I used to do with P2P, but I've actually been playing back a fair bit of yt-dl stuff over the last few months. What I could do with now is a searchable database by artist, composer, date, piece, etc. The longer I leave it the bigger that job gets.
