    Mozart

    Before I go shopping, one more Mozart


    I love marches and especially Mozart's, there is nothing inferior or martial about them, on the contrary they are very cheerful and stimulating.
    Especially this one in D K 408/2

    Good choice of music - pictures of LPs and turntables like that make me want to cry!!!

    I never want to go back to the snap, crackle, jump and pop, but the ritual and the aesthetic

    Robert Simpson (1921-1997) - Symphony No.5 (1972) - 39 minutes
    London Symphony Orchestra, Andrew Davis - Live, Premiere recording, Royal Festival Hall, London 3rd May 1973. Lyrita.

    Although this recording has been available for a few weeks, I pre-ordered it as a download from Qobuz and it became available as of one minute past midnight today.

    Played it through twice and it is an excellent performance - a most interesting comparison with Vernon Handley's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Hyperion recording from the 1990s.

    I'll move on to the coupled 6th symphony tonight ......

    Yesterday and this morning:

    I took a little trip with Mark Twain through the magic of technology and YouTube for some "Life on the Mississippi":

    Florence Price: Mississippi River Suite, 1934 (Apo Hsu/Women's Philharmonic Orchestra)


    Ferdinand Grofe: Mississippi River Suite, 1925 (Felix Slatkin/Hollywood Bowl Orchestra)


    So we have two wonderful musical portraits of America's mighty Mississippi River. Both capture the vast expansiveness and the folk culture.

    Florence Price incorporates African-American hymns and folk songs directly, and also relies upon her obvious influence from her teacher, George Chadwick, as well as, Antonin Dvorak who's style almost always seems to work it's way into Price's compositions. Even so, Price is also a wonderful composer in her own rite; tonal, lyrical, pleasant, but also with personality and even a sense of gentle humor. As far as I can tell, this recording of Price's Mississippi Suite by Apo Hsu and the Women's Philharmonic is the only one that exists.

    Ferdinand Grofe is also tonal, lyrical, and pleasant. While he is most well-known for his Grand Canyon Suite, which has come down as the one work that makes a name for Grofe, he actually composed several pieces that celebrate the natural beauty of the American continent. Apart from Grand Canyon and Mississippi Suite, there's a also a Death Valley and a Niagara Falls Suite, and those are just the ones I happen know about. The Mississippi Suite is a very fine work that becomes a little schmaltzy in some parts, but we can attribute that Grofe's dual role as a composer for big bands and swing orchestras, stuff like Paul Whiteman, which were all the rage during his times. But Mississippi Suite remains a great piece of "Americana" and it was done several years, maybe a decade before Aaron Copland took us to Appalachia and to the Wild West with Appalachian Spring, Rodeo and Billy the Kid.

    Florence Price and Ferdinand Grofe:
