    Default Want to identify all the pieces in this website...

    Hi,

    I am a dressage rider who would love to know who composed all the music on the http://www.realescuela.org/home.htm website.

    Down in the bottom to the right you can fast forward so that you can hear all the songs that they have on the site, and I would like to know them all!

    I bet they are really famous but I have been embarrassingly ignorant when it came to asking my (riding) maestro what we were listening to during practice.

    Please help as I am about to make a CD for dressage riding. And if you want to give me some more tips on music suitable for riding I am more than grateful!

    As a rough guide, a horse walks in a four beat motion, trots in a two beat and canters in a three beat - then of course they all move in different beats per minute but I just want to start somewhere.

    I don't speak Spanish, but if I understand the text correctly, it says something along the lines of,
    "The music you hear is presented on our CD "Cómo Bailan los Caballos Andaluces" Interpreted by Manuel Carrasco..." with a link ("clic aqui") to a site where you can buy it.

    Someone who speaks the language, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    As to music for you dressage shows, I once played with a string Chamber Orchestra on a show for Baroque riding. Our program involved Edvard Grieg's "Holberg" Suite and a violin concerto by J. S. Bach (the E Major, IIRC). The show itself was supremely disappointing. The riders tried to show a Quadrille (I've tried riding one too, once upon a time, so I can understand the difficulty, but... meh...).

    Thank you for your reply I will definitely use the Bach violin concerto in E major!

    I did see that they had put a link to the album by Manuel Carrasco but I think he has interpreted some already made music. Especially the one they play on the first page (see link) after the horse has done its "levade" http://www.realescuela.org/ that is the music used for the quadrille and I really want to know where it comes from.
