Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
All the accidentals are intentional, every variant is preset.
And yet it’s a beautiful thing, agonisingly beautiful.
An anonymous gift from Youtube.
It’s not BIS Wallin/Pontinen and it’s not Kremer’s… not that there is anything wrong with that
Thank you… Just like hearing Thelonious Monk deconstruct old tunes…
Schnittke must have had a terrible childhood.
Slightly more seriously, doesn’t this sound a bit like John Cage’s Quartet?
This music was used as very powerful and poignant ballet dance for a struggling couple … danced in Perth Western Australia at least a decade ago, part of a free public outdoor ballet concert before Christmas. Very moving … a recording was used, for outdoor acoustic reasons, although the rest of the program was accompanied by the live West Australian Symphony Orchestra (miked).
Thanks for posting. I need to put this into our mix for next year!
