ANTONIN DVORAK.- Rhapsody en Re mayor Op. 45 Nº1: great compositions/performances



From Carlos Garcia Carlos Garcia

ANTONIN DVORAK.- Rhapsody en Re mayor Op. 45 Nº1

ANTONIN DVORAK.-
Rhapsody en Re mayor Op. 45 Nº1

1. Allegro con moto
2. Allegro ma non troppo-Moderato
3. Andante maestoso-Allegro assai

Orquesta Filarmónica Checa
Director: Václav Neuman
Fecha y año de composición 1878
Dedicatoria Baron Paul von Dervies
Estilo Romantic

Instrumentación: Piccolo, 2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets, 2 Bassoons, 4 Horns, 2 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, Timpani, Bass Drum, Cymbals, Triangle, Harp, Violins I, Violins II, Violas, Cellos, Double Basses.

1878 fue un año importante para Antonín Dvorák : Dvorák amigo de Johannes Brahms le ayudó a levantar desde el pozo de la oscuridad haciendo los arreglos para la publicación alemana de sus Duetos moravos; en consecuencia, recibió el encargo del primer volumen de sus Danzas eslavas que, hasta el día de hoy, siguen siendo, junto con el “Nuevo Mundo” Symphony, Dvorák música más conocidas. Estos eventos marcan el inicio de Dvorák llamado períodos eslavo “(finales de 1870 a principios de 1880), durante el cual él respondió directamente a la demanda del público y de los deseos de su editor por componer música explícitamente bohemio / Checo / Morava de tono, el estilo, y en cierta medida, de diseño. Las tres eslava rapsodias para orquesta, op. 45, de 1878, son las más grandes manifestaciones de esa financieramente rentable vena musical.

El primero de los tres eslava rapsodias en re mayor, op. 45/1, fue compuesto durante febrero y marzo de 1878 y por lo tanto en realidad es anterior a las Danzas eslavas; N º 2 en sol menor y n º 3 en La bemol mayor que siguió en el otoño y principios del invierno, respectivamente. La orquesta empleada es bastante grande; el contingente habitual de los vientos y las cuerdas se ve aumentada por el arpa y una brigada de percusión de tamaño considerable. Las tres piezas se unen para formar un ciclo de clases, aunque casi nunca se oye hablar de ellos interpretados juntos como un conjunto.
La característica más memorable del N º 1 es el episodio-march como central, mientras que el No. 2 se distingue por sus numerosos cambios entre 3/4 y 4/4. La tercera eslava Rhapsody se abre con un solo de arpa cuya sustancia es inmediatamente absorbido por los instrumentos de viento, y procede a explorar una serie de melodías de buen carácter; la gran culminación parece disolverse elusively sin una resolución final, pero al final dos acordes brillantes dibujar la pieza a la cadencia que anhelamos

1878 was an important year for Antonín Dvorák: Dvorák friend Johannes Brahms helped him lift from the pit of darkness making arrangements for the German publication of his Moravian Duets; consequently, he was commissioned the first volume of his Slavonic Dances that until today, remain, along with the “New World” Symphony, Dvorák‘s music known. These events mark the beginning of Dvorák Slavonic called periods (late 1870s to early 1880s), during which he answered directly to the public demand and the wishes of his editor to compose music specifically Bohemian / Czech / Moravian tone , style, and to some extent, design. Slavic Three rhapsodies for orchestra, op. 45, 1878, are the largest demonstrations that financially rewarding musical vein.

The first of the three Slavonic Rhapsodies in D major, op. 45/1, was composed during February and March 1878 and therefore actually predates the Slavonic Dances; No. 2 in G minor and No. 3 in sun-flat major followed in the fall and early winter, respectively. The orchestra employed is quite large; the usual contingent of winds and strings is augmented by harp and percussion brigade of considerable size. The three pieces come together to form a cycle of classes, but almost never hear of them performed together as a whole.
The most memorable feature of the No. 1-march is the central episode, while No. 2 was distinguished by its many changes between 3.4 and 4.4. The third Slavonic Rhapsody opens with a harp solo whose substance is immediately absorbed by the wind instruments, and proceeds to explore a number of tunes of good character; seems to dissolve the grand climax elusively without a final resolution, but in the end two bright chords drawing the piece to the cadence that yearn

Song to the Moon – Antonín Dvořák: make music part of your life series


Song to the Moon – Antonín Dvořák

See lyrics translated into English below.

Soprano Renee Fleming sings this aria. Dvorak’s composition relies upon expansive arpeggiated chords to capture the fairy tale ambiance of Rusalka. The amicable old Spirit of the Lake, Jezibab, is enjoying the singing of the Wood Nymphs, when his daughter, Rusalka, sadly approaches him. She admits that she has fallen in love with a handsome prince. Yearning to know the bliss of union with him, she wishes to become human. Deeply saddened, the Spirit of the Lake consents to her request, and leaves. All alone, Rusalka sings this magnificent aria and shares the secrets of her longing to the moon.

Featuring the paintings and artwork of William Bouguereau, Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, J.W. Waterhouse, Armand Guillaumin, and Spadecaller.

Lyrics (translation)

Silver moon upon the deep dark sky,
Through the vast night pierce your rays.
This sleeping world you wander by,
Smiling on man’s homes and ways.
Oh moon ere past you glide, tell me,
Tell me, oh where does my loved one bide?
Oh moon ere past you glide, tell me
Tell me, oh where does my loved one bide?
Tell him, oh tell him, my silver moon,
Mine are the arms that shall hold him,
That between waking and sleeping he may
Think of the love that enfolds him,
May between waking and sleeping
Think of the love that enfolds him.
Light his path far away, light his path,
Tell him, oh tell him who does for him stay!
Human soul, should it dream of me, Let my memory wakened be.
Moon, moon, oh do not wane, do not wane,
Moon, oh moon, do not wane….

Dvořák / String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96 “American” (Cleveland Quartet)

Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904):

String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96, B. 179 “American” (1893)

00:00 - Allegro ma non troppo
09:08 - Lento
16:14 – Molto vivace
20:00 – Finale. Vivace ma non troppo

Performed by the Cleveland Quartet (Telarc, 1991).

“From its first performance, Dvořák’s  ‘American’ Quartet has enjoyed lasting popularity for its tunefulness, its rhythmic verve, and its happy interplay of the four instruments. Given all the publicity afforded Dvořák’s ideas on American music, one might reasonably ask just how ‘American’ Op. 96 really is. A theme in the third movement qualifies as having been borrowed from an American: ‘a damned bird (red, only with black wings)’ that kept singing where he was working. Dvořák worked the native bird’s song into the scherzo (measures 21 and following). Beyond that we are on less firm ground. Many of the themes are entirely or nearly pentatonic, and some have wanted to see in this the influence of the black spiritual. But in fact Bohemian music is just as frequently pentatonic, and similar themes can be found in Dvořák’s music long before he came to America. The opening of the work was based on Smetana‘s First Quartet, though Dvořák’s mood is entirely diferent — lighter and livelier throughout, with the poignant exception of the lyrical second movement, the plaintive melody of which — echoed between violin and cello — is a wonderful foil to the high spirits of the remaining three movements.” – Steven Ledbetter
