    Some of Shostakovich's String Quartets, with which I am currently obsessed, bear the marks of klezmer, and/or gypsy melodies and rhythms. Besides SQs from names like Schnittke or Bartok, which other composers have drawn from folk/klezmer music?
  3. Identifying Classical Music
    I recently attended a string camp in which the faculty played the most beautiful song I have ever heard. It was so romantic, so lovely. The only part of the title of the song I remember is, "Variations on an English _____". I faintly remember the last word started with "P", although I may be...
  4. Today's Composers
    Hey guys! I would like to share with you one of my pieces for an 8-part SATB choir which was premiered last summer at the Bratislava Conservatory. It's a well known Slovak folk song with kinda weird and funny lyrics, but I honestly think it's simply about the attraction between a women and a...

    Hi everybody, I'm new here so I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. A little context: my emsemble and I are planning on holding a concert featuring folk/traditional music from places along the silk road. So far we've got Greece (Skalkottas' Greek dances), Romania (Bartok's...

    The Norwegian Broadcasting Orchestra Played folk music in a televised concert. The concert was called 'folk music in symphony'. Good or bad ? Augustblomen (Flowers of August)
  10. Solo & Chamber Music
    Does anyone own the complete set? Is it worthwhile? I know Kempff sets a high standard with this, I'm just not familiar with the early sonatas and don't know if that's a worthy endeavor. I'm a touch hooked on boxed sets... What say you fine folk? Edit: sorry for the feminization of his first...

    The gifted Donegal traditional folk singer, musician and storyteller Packie Manus Byrne has sadly died at the age of 98. Folk Radio has a good article with links to his singing. Here he is on whistle

    IMHO Stravinsky was the trail blazer of incorporating true folklore into classical music. One of the most recognised Polish composers Karol Szymanowski decided to follow his path and took on a project of presenting Polish Highlanders' (Gorale) folklore in the form of ballet-pantomime. The...
  13. Non-Classical Music
    I am interested in hearing recordings of real, traditional folk music in its original context. Too many records or albums of folk music have that very polished, studio atmosphere and lack the vitality of a true folk setting. Either that or the songs themselves are watered down or 'polished' in...
