Sergei Rachmaninov plays “The Star Spangled Banner”

It’s always good to start off with a dignified version of the anthem without the virtuosic flourishes.

Bless The Boundaries

December 29, 2012

In all the years I’ve worked with people, I’ve yet to meet someone whose life was all messed up because he or she kept God’s commands. Yet, in a day when personal freedom is celebrated as an inalienable right, talk of conforming our lifestyle to God’s ways is often viewed as an infringement. And anyone who speaks out in favor of God’s boundaries is ruled out of bounds. But in this frenzy to be free, it should not go unnoticed that our society is increasingly marked with a haunting sense of meaninglessness and despair.

God’s people should have a distinctly different view of boundaries. Like the psalmist, we must realize that a blessed life comes from delighting in the law of the Lord (Ps. 1:2)—not in living like those who “walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take” (v.1 niv). A believer in Jesus will recognize that God’s boundaries are not meant to take the pizazz out of life. Instead, they are divine fences constructed with God’s wisdom to help us avoid the treachery and trouble of reckless living.

Next time you are tempted to break through God’s boundaries, remember His loving purpose in putting up fences. Choose to bless God for the boundaries and for the way they bless you.

What freedom lies with all who choose
To live for God each day!
But chains of bondage shackle those
Who choose some other way. —D. DeHaan
God’s fences keep you within the bounds of His blessings.

Read: Psalm 1

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners. —Psalm 1:1
Bible in a Year:
Revelation 13-15

“I’m here & dealing with low signal from my wifi”

Temperature, pressure, humidity and, of course, any metal obstacle between the transmitter and receiver. Otherwise, other radio interference that wasn’t there before.

LOUIS MOREAU GOTTSCHALK

AMERICA’S FIRST SUPERSTAR

Before Scott Joplin and George Gershwin, there was Gottschalk. Louis was born in 1829 to a Jewish father from London and a Creole mother in New Orleans. The family was large because it contained six siblings, five of whom were progeny of his father via his black mistress. New Orleans was tres, tres French!

By 1842, at the age of 13, he was already a gifted pianist, and his family sent him off to Paris where he hoped to enter the Paris Conservatory to study under the great pianists of the age. The Conservatory was not impressed, so Louis went off to study privately.

In 1845, at age 16, he played a private recital in the presence of Frederic Chopin, who was sufficiently impressed with the boy’s technique to predict a bright future for him. Hector Berlioz thought highly of him too.

In 1849, at age 20, Louis programmed his first public recital with miniatures of his own composition and blew his audience away. These short piano pieces were steeped in the African and Creole sounds of New Orleans’ Congo Square. Shortly thereafter, the Paris Conservatory began to demand that potential students for the piano course be able to play at least one of Gottschalk’s demanding miniatures.

The reviews in the Paris newspapers were phenomenal.

Victor Hugo: “A young bard from America.”
Theophile Gautier: “He has pitched his tent alongside the masters.”

What got these people so excited? The early pieces are solidly written, very demanding, and they are all still in the repertory. The first is a lot of fun. I should note that the accent here is on the last syllable.

Gottschalk: “Bamboula”

The second, “The Banana Tree”, has some wonderful colors to it.

”Le Bananier”

For the third, once you get past the introduction, you’ll recognize the famous children’s song, except that’s it’s in a minor key. This is a set of variations.

”La Savane”

A mazurka just a bit different from Chopin.

”La Moissonneuse”

A lot of composers took a shot at writing variations on the folk tune “The Carnival of Venice”, from Paganini and Chopin, to Al Hirt and Wynton Marsalis. Louis took his own shot at it.

”The Carnival of Venice”

Louis had gone to Spain to play some concerts and ended up receiving the royal patronage of the Queen of Spain. The amazing Cecile Licad plays this early Gottschalk favorite.

”Souvenir of Andalusia”

Another piece from his Spanish tour.

”La Jota aragonesa”

Louis liked the fame and the money, but he didn’t like European musical life. He disliked Franz Liszt, characterizing him as “devoured by a thirst for glory.” Commenting on Liszt’s long hair, Louis said, “It came to be the symbol of the art for his numerous adepts. There was no romantic who did not wear his hair long, and there are today some who have none of Liszt’s talents except the hair.”

After eleven years in Europe, Louis decided to come home. But that was going to require some adjustments.

Louis Moreau Gottschalk came back to America in 1853 and set up a series of concerts in the US and Canada. He wowed the crowds with his pianism and his handsome form with its full mustache. In a manner reminiscent with Franz Liszt, women threw their hotel keys onto the stage at the end of the concert.

Louis didn’t like the vanity and egotism of the European musical scene, but he found that America wasn’t that much better. New railroads linked the cities of North America, so traveling was easier, but he once commented, “New Jersey is the poorest place in the world to give concerts, except Central Africa.”

He understood the commercial side of the business quite well. Every piano piece he wrote was arranged by himself for piano 4-hands to take advantage of the home market. He would occasionally write a song or a piece for piano and violin or cello. Later would come pieces for piano and orchestra and two short symphonies.

In 1854, he took off for an extended stay in Cuba, and his piano pieces now took on a Spanish flavor. The first is a Cuban dance.

Gottschalk: ”El Cocoye”

This is one of his best known pieces, a meditation before dying.

”The Last Hope”

This was one of his greatest commercial successes. In addition to arranging it for piano 4-hands, he arranged this piece for brass band, small ensemble and dance orchestra. In 1854, everyone on two continents was dancing to this.

”Tournament Galop”

Hurrah for FIL!! Woohoo!!

I worked this morning and this afternoon was my Dad’s regular 3 month doctor appointment. Doc was able to get the wax out of his ear (necessary per the hearing aid lady) without going to the water pik....he didn’t like it the last time. His hearing aid hasn’t squealed since....thank goodness. No negatives except for age.

Busy, busy week....lots of appointments kept, but the weekend is here. I have a whole list of my stuff that needs doing this weekend, so I have high hopes. LOL!

Most Americans know little of the history of the nations south of the Rio Grande. Central and South America have their own histories of dictators, liberators, problems with the native population, and slavery. There were bloody rebellions and wars. We spend little time thinking about it.

In 1855, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, at age 26, began a series of concerts in Central and South America, which he took by storm. Two pieces from 1855 clearly show his new interest.

Gottschalk: ”Manchega”

This little polka gives the listener a look into the dance styles of the era.

”Rayons d’azur”

This is one of Louis’ best known pieces, which quotes the chorus from Stephen Foster’s “Camptown Races” at the end. The pianist is Lincoln Mayorga, who worked as a session pianist in Los Angeles during the Fifties as a teenager. For those with long memories, Mayorga played piano on the famous Four Preps tunes “Big Man” and “26 Miles”. He’s carved out a niche as a pianist playing the music of American composers.

”The Banjo”

This 1857 piece is a lot of fun.

”La Gitanella”

In 1857, Louis decided to settle in Puerto Rico which he would use as his home base for the next five years. This is one of his best and most beloved pieces, with its hint of Indian and Spanish rhythms. Once you hear it, you can’t get that tune out of your head.

”Souvenir of Puerto Rico”

Astrologers call it the Saturn Return, which arrives at about age 30. At that age, Schumann, Chopin and Brahms had miracle years in which they wrote some of their best material. In 1859, Louis Moreau Gottschalk turned 30, and it was the year of some of his best piano material and his first symphony. It started with a caprice based on Stephen Foster’s “My Old Kentucky Home”.

Gottshalk: “Columbia”

Another great dance tune to get the feet tapping.

”Hurrah Galop”

A scintillating little waltz for maidens and – ahem! – non-maidens alike.

”The Maiden’s Blush”

A cute little Cuban tango.

”Creole Eyes”

A delightful polka.

”Orfa”

Although described as a polka, it is closer to a waltz.

”Pensive”

A caprice using mazurka rhythm and rondo format.

”Polonia”

This sounds a bit like Scott Joplin, who came along four decades later. You can imagine this being played in saloons all across North and South America.

”Reponds-moi”

Another gem from his days in Cuba.

”Souvenir of Havana”

Two short polkas, only recently discovered.

Polka in B-flat

Polka in A-flat

Watch his hands on this nocturne, and you’ll see how difficult it really is.

”La chute des feuilles”

A short caprice in a minor key.

”O ma charmante, espargnez-moi”

Somewhere between Chopin and Joplin.

”Suis-moi”
