A new "Burlesque, a recent Chopin PC # 1

Post by Rach3 » Mon Sep 17, 2018 12:40 pm

Mendelssohn - Symphonie No. 3 en la mineur, op. 56 ('Scottish')
Chopin - Concerto pour piano No. 1 en mi mineur, op. 21

Avec le pianiste Szymon Nehring, l' Orchestre du XVIIIe Siècle, et le chef d'orchestre Gustavo Gimeno.

Enregistré le 29 août 2017, au Chopin et son festival international de musique en Europe.

Concerto at approx. 40:00 in. I am not fluent in French, but do not think the presenter mentioned whether this may have been a period piano ( or just my poor ears or sound here ) . I believe the concert was in Warsaw ; the audience loved the Chopin. A Chopin Nocturne,Scarlatti sonata as encores. Nehring won the 2017 Rubinstein Competition, I believe my first hearing of him here in a large work.

A new cd for free listening, complete , Strauss’ “Burlesque “ , one of my fav works, and his “Ein Heldenleben” :

Denis Kozhukhin, Netherland Phil.,Marc Albrecht conductor

Kozhukhin was the 2010 QEB Competition winner.

There , of course, are LOTS of CM stations. I dont want to be a nuisance here, just post what I thought interesting ,usually piano which is my main interest, from those few stations I follow.

Rach3....

You're decidedly NOT annoying! I enjoy your posts, but just don't have the time to listen to everything. :D

So much great music, so little time......

Fortunately my French is somewhat better, but I can't make it work. How am I supposed to get past the obvious franglais of connectez-vous?

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

This is the procedure I had to use the first time, but not since ( or only rarely since ). A real pain, but so far worth it. This process gives Radio Belgium the ability to send messages to you and your Contacts list, but they have not so far for me , probably because they can see I’m not in Europe. (I believe my CIO son told me they probably can access Contacts before anyway.)

Click on the “ Connectez-vous” box in the middle of the first page that comes up when you click on a broadcast link, which first page usually has a picture of the presenter person.

For me, that click then brings up a window where I have to choose to connect with Google or Facebook ( there may have been other options I dont recall ). As I dont do Facebook, but do have a gmail account, and use Google as my browser home page / search engine , I click on the Google button in the window. (Sometimes that brings up the same window again , and I click on Google again. ) At that point, the page where “ connectez-vous “ first appeared usually appears again with an arrow in the middle you lick on to start the broadcast. Sometimes, after my first or second Google click, the initial window comes up, but blank, ie no presenter photo, so I have to re-load the page, after which worked.

Thereafter, you will also get a pop-up window each time saying your “ profile “ is not complete ( mine only “ 35 % “ ) asking if you’d like to complete your profile ; I click “ non.” So , I am comfortable.
