Legendary conductor Fritz Reiner established his legacy when he assumed his directorship of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Reiner raised the status of the CSO that of one of the finest in the world. Although not often associated with the works of the French Impressionist composers, these performances from 1958 are considered among the finest from the Reiner/CSO era! Recorded on March 4, April 13 and April 15, 1957 at Orchestra Hall, Chicago. Musicians: Chicago Symphony Orchestra Fritz Reiner, conductor

 

Mozart – Alla Turca – Turkish March (60 Minutes Version)


Mozart – Alla Turca – Turkish March (60 Minutes Version)

Published on Jul 17, 2014/214,439

Rondo Alla Turca by Mozart in a 60 minutes rendition from a very rare LP recording featuring piano and orchestra with a repetition of the piece for more than 10 times. This version of the Alla Turca, also known as the Turkish March is the only one accompanied by a symphony orchestra with a more soothing and deep sound of this true master piece by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The melodic lines in the orchestra are more in the style of Beethoven & Tchaikovsky than Mozart, and remind a little bit of the James Bond Theme, but the concept of the piece is originally followed. Let’s say that this is a modern version of the Turkish March enhanced with the rich orchestral sound.

Enjoy and relax while listening to this really long and calming version of Rondo alla Turca, which can be used for various occasions like music for healing, reading, homework, learning, relaxing, stress relief and even for a musical ambiance if you have some guests at home and when doing any other useful things as well.

Thanks for watching Alla turca by Mozart and if you like it, please subscribe to this channel, for more innovative & enjoyable music like this to come soon!

Wagner Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg; Prelude to Act I; Solti

This piece introduces the first act of the composer’s music drama called The Mastersingers of Nuremberg. Similar to his other operas, he wrote the scenario and libretto in addition to the musical score.

 

Brahms: Academic Festival Overture (Solti, CSO)



This is Brahms‘ Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80 (Akademische Festouvertüre), a much lighter counterpart to his Tragic Overture. He composed it in 1880 when he received an honourary doctorate from the University of Breslau (now Wroclaw), as a musical show of gratitude. The music is very light-hearted, warm and humorous, but Brahms uses the occasion as a tour-de-force in contrapuntal symphonic writing. The orchestra whisks through several pulsing, boisterous melodies, which Brahms described as a “potpourri of student drinking songs,” subtly mocking the academic institution for which he composed the piece. At 9:10 the orchestra erupts into a joyous rendition of “Gaudeamus igitur” (“So let us rejoice,” a.k.a. “On the shortness of life”), a popular Latin graduation hymn which was originally a beer-drinking song. 

The recording is by Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The images are of Solti, Brahms, the University of Wroclaw, and the beautiful old city of Wroclaw, Poland.

First verse of the Gaudeamus: 

Gaudeamus igitur Juvenes dum sumus. 
Post jucundam juventutem 
Post molestam senectutem 
Nos habebit humus. 

Let us rejoice therefore 
While we are young. 
After a pleasant youth 
After a troubling old age 
The earth will have us.
