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


    I am a dressage rider who would love to know who composed all the music on the 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" that is the music used for the quadrille and I really want to know where it comes from.
