I am listening to Alma Deutscher. child pianist and violinist and composer.  Very talented and both parents are very academic so maybe she has inherited that from them

Buxtehude, the emotional composer whose works overflow with life and cry out across a couple of centuries as fresh today as though the ink were still wet. And that viol, that viol...

And just for a change - Chris Rupp :wub:.

 

Here's his a cappella (plus violin) take on a recent pop song by Imagine Dragons.   Again, so inventive and creative.

 

His new album of his own piano compositions goes to press today.  One of them is in the Lydian mode :wub:...

Nuria Rial again. I don't know how she can do this. I just want to be the janitor wherever she lives, works and sings so I can drop my mop, and simply listen with wonder whenever she does it. There are people who on a scale of 1 to 10 are so good you want to give them more than 10. And then there are people where you can only throw the scale out the window as it's lost all meaning. If I were Monteverdi, I would cry with happiness to hear my music performed like this, after so many years.

That's a good album, the guy definitely has a talent for singing. I also liked his music when he was part of Keane.

I absolutely love the folksiness of this arrangement and performance - the Hound and the Fox have really brought a new freshness to the song.

 

It's visually wonderful too.

 

And enjoy Tim Foust's bottom Bs  ohmy.png ohmy.png ohmy.png .

 

This is a real joy.

Maria Cristina Kiehr; how did I manage to reach the age I have, and enjoy early music, without hearing her sing? Her version of Buxtehude's Herr, wenn ich nur Dich habe is so beautiful - but then again, everything else of hers that I've found has been pretty much as close to heaven as I'm likely to get.

I've been told by a friend that I HAVE to see Mary Poppins Returns so my DVD arrived today and I'm just waiting for a free evening when I'm in the right mood!

 

But to be going on with, here's my friend Chris's lovely a cappella arrangement (he sings all the parts too) of The Place Where The Lost Things Go  wub.png

It must be strange being a really, really, really good pianist, but have a sister who's even better...

(they play together sublimely)

Arthur007, I think your post is advertising? I see you are new, but the rules of this site are that we do not advertise.

Went to see Abel Selaocoe in recital last night, first event of Skipton Music's calendar for this season. Mixture of classical and original cello with a South African vibe. He was fantastic. https://www.abelselaocoe.com/

Akira Ifukube's Sinfonia Tapkaara. It was inspired by Ainu ritual dance (the indigenous people of Hokkaido where the composer grew up).
