He was an organist and you can pick up that influence in his music.
Thanks Cepheus. I've tried to warm up to Bruckner's symphonies, but I just can't. I've even visited St. Florian, the monastery where Bruckner is buried (underneath the organ loft.)

I like his organ masses, but his symphonies are just too big and sprawling for me. Same for Mahler's , IMO.

I like cool music.

Clair de Lune (Moonlight) is a musical work written for piano from the Bergamo Suite composed by Claude Debussy in 1890.

Clair de Lune is inspired by a Paul Verlaine's poem published in 1869:

"Your soul is a chosen landscape
What charming masks and bergamasques go
Playing the lute and dancing and almost dancing
Sad under their whimsical disguises.
While singing in the minor mode
Overcoming Love and Timely Life
They don't seem to believe in their happiness.
And their song blends in with the moonlight,
In the calm moonlight sad and beautiful,
That makes birds dream in trees
And sobbing the water jets with ecstasy,
The big jets of slender water among the marbles."


It is soft and impressionistic music.
It lasts about 4 minutes.
The structure of this piece is in three parts: 1/2/1 followed by a Coda (conclusion of 7 measurements).
The intensity is essentially in the nuances.
There are two main themes, the first in Part 1 and the second in Part 2.

Part 1:
The first theme is in Db Maj, It consists of a pattern 8 bars from high to low in a ternary rhythm and pianissimo nuance.

Part 2:
It is played with a very fluid rhythm in the registers bass and keyboard midrange.
The tempo is a little faster.

The second section of part 2 wins towards the treble and the tempo is animated.
It's the only strong passageway in the piece. The key changes to C.

The third section announces the return to Db Maj.
Tempo calms down but the flood of arpeggios remains.
At the end, time stretches slowly.

Come-back to Part 1:
It is shortened and modified. The rhythms are longer at the end, the time stretches slowly.

The coda is again a stream of double eighth notes in the nuance with third intervals.
The piano's three registers are once again used from the bass to the treble and give the final touch.
And besides the pianist is sexy.



Good night,

If the video stops (usually in the first minute), use the cursor to reset the time to 0. This works for me.

The pianist is Julia Fischer from Germany. Her main instrument is the violin. She just plays some piano on the side.

Greatest composer of all time? There can only be one answer: Beethoven. Greatest piece of music ever? What else but Beethoven´s "Missa solemnis"?

The Gloria movement:

Interpretationen und ihre Rezeption sind eine subjektive Angelegenheit. Ich habe die Links auf die Schnelle angegeben, um Leute ohne Vorkenntnis des Werks grundsätzlich damit vertraut zu machen.

(Interpretations and their reception are a subjective matter. I gave the links in a rush just to basically acquaint people without previous knowledge with the work.)
