Re: Composition Inspired by Copyrighted Literature

The work in its entirety is originally my own idea, but based on my impression of the children's book, The Ersatz Elevator. Thank you for the information!

Composition Inspired by Copyrighted Literature

Is it permissible for me to upload a composition of my creation that is inspired by a published book still under copyright law and contains its title as the subtitle? My composition is of course not protected by any type of law.

Re: What are your favorite accelerandos?

That's a great question, and one that I haven't given much thought. The last movement of Beethoven 5 comes to mind, probably one of the most famous accelerandos written. The coda of Dvorak's Eighth Symphony is also one of my favorites, especially how the music calms down and almost comes to a halt r...

Re: Slavonic Organ Music

I know it is probably too late, but Alexander Glazunov wrote a Fantasy for Organ in G minor, Op. 110 (not a Czech composer or a member of The Five, but Russian nonetheless). The organ is not an extremely popular instrument in Eastern Europe, and many Orthodox Churches do not even have an organ, so m...

Re: What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

William Schuman's Violin Concerto played by Robert McDuffie with the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leonard Slatkin

Probably the most abrupt beginning I have heard in a piece so far, but very good beginning nonetheless.

Re: George Szell

I also love watching him rehearse or give lessons on clips like this.

You can gain so much musical insight from the things he says.

George Szell

I am curious to read what users on the IMSLP forum think about this highly respected conductor. I personally think his integrity to the composer's intention and the virtuosity the Cleveland Orchestra reached under his direction is amazing and praiseworthy.

Louis Spohr's Symphony No. 6, "Historical". Very clever idea by Spohr to write a symphony where each different movement pertains to a musical style of certain era up to 1840.

Max Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 58. Bruch favored his later two violin concertos over his famous first.

Re: Most Effective Introductions in Works

sbeckmesser wrote:Haydn Symphonies 94 (Surprise), 97, 102, 103 (Drum-roll) and 104 (London). Haydn: Creation (Chaos opening)


What about his Military Symphony, No. 100? I think the way he weaves the themes in the introduction is very nicely done.

Re: Greatest String Quartet

Anton Rubinstein's String Quartets Nos. 1 and 2, Op. 17 could be a nice, obscure addition.

Most Effective Introductions in Works

I compiled a list below of pieces that contain an introduction in the first movement that I felt were attractive. In your opinion, what makes an effective, slow introduction to a piece of music? Petite Symphonie by Charles Gounod- The extremely lyrical, Adagio section that proceeds the Allegretto in...

Re: Listening to Mozart and Musicality in Playing

Yes, she also stressed that when two were playing Telemann's Canonic Duets, and then she mentioned Bach transcriptions. A little off topic, but curious, at USC did you study with Yehuda Gilad or David Howard?
