Yes definitely John Williams The beginning to one of his Star Wars songs is a direct rip-off from Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (beginning of 2nd part). I think it's a Dune Sea transition song or whatever... As for Prokofiev, there is this one movie, I can't remember what it is... Ah OK, so Berlioz? Y...

Large orchestra with hidden textures

You can find them all over the more recent orchestral works, perhaps starting with Richard Wagner (someone check the veracity of that please!) to now with some film composers such as John Williams (that Prokofiev-Stravinsky-[Ravel?] mixer) and Howard Shore. There are those notes that are played by i...

Wouldn't the combination of VC, CB, and harpsichord be the basso continuo of the baroque and early classical period? I have seen a couple of live orchestral (in the Baroque sense of the term) Bach performed by the Jacksonville Symphony and I noticed all three (hint 1) onstage. Then my violin teacher...

Forgive me for such a naive question (I used to know what it is...I forgot and am too lazy to look it up again) but what exactly does a moderator do and how would one work in this forum?

What happened to the poll? I thought I set it for unlimited time...
Or if it's still active, how does one vote without going straight to the results?

Well I guess it doesn't matter what it was written for. (It is, after all, just silence for four minutes and thirty-three seconds...)

Speaking of Cage, I once saw a public performance of 4'33" (I assume you know what that is?) by an orchestra on Google Video...it received thunderous applause (sarcasm?) :?

Wow...Great work! It's a good thing you kept all of that stuff! I'll try to complete the 2 piano transcription...meanwhile... Let's get back to the topic.

The problem is, I have been so busy, it's probably never going to finish. However, if it does, I will typeset it and upload! That would be a great idea! Indeed, it is a good way to learn the internals of a piece, especially one for such large orchestra! Actually, the typesetting will probably be th...

Stravinsky made the 2 piano, 4 hands reduction himself. Dover has reprinted this (origially issued by Edition Russe in 1920 or so) sells it for a very reasonable price. Here's the link for the Amazon page: http://www.amazon.com/Spring-Piano-Hands-Classical-Keyboard/dp/0486445399/sr=1-3/qid=11701376...

Strav made a one piano, 4 hand arrangement, not a two piano arrangement. Yes there are two one piano arrangements. One is by Strav (for the rehearsals) but I haven't seen it. Another is by Vladimir Leyetchkiss (spelling?) which I do have and is terribly hard to play, because he has notes going every...

Stravinsky's masterpiece, as far as I am concerned. I gained the most respect for the orchestra conductor at my school when I learned he conducted Sacre from memory . There's actually a nice two-piano reduction of it (recorded by Fazil Say, on both parts !) that I have a scan of, it might be PD. Oh...
