    Paul Dukas (1865-1935) (France) Symphonie en ut majeur (1896) 1/3 **MUST HEAR** Dir : Armin Jordan 1- Allegro non troppo vivace, ma con fuoco (14.52) AprÚs avoir été un élÚve médiocre au Conservatoire, Paul Dukas écrivit le plus célÚbre (et l'un des meilleurs) poÚme symphonique français : « L'Apprenti Sorcier » (1897). Parce qu'il n'avait pas obtenu le Grand Prix de Rome à cause de Charles Gounod, il devint le protégé de Camille Saint-Saëns, ce qui le dédommagea.

  • Anton Bruckner - Symphony No. 4 "Romantic"

    YouTube ^ | 1881 | Anton Bruckner
    Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 4 in E-flat major is one of the composer's most popular works. It was written in 1874 and revised several times through 1888. It was dedicated to Prince Konstantin of Hohenlohe-SchillingsfĂŒrst. It was premiered in 1881 by Hans Richter in Vienna with great success. The symphony's nickname of Romantic was used by the composer himself. It does not refer to the modern conception of romantic love but rather the medieval romance as depicted in the operas Lohengrin and Siegfried of Richard Wagner. The symphony has four movements: I. Bewegt, nicht zu schnell (0:09) II. Andante, quasi...

    YouTube ^ | Composed 1855; Premiered 1935 | Georges Bizet
    Donald Johanos and New Zealand Symphony Orchestra Bill Sullivan 3 weeks ago (edited) The Bizet Symphony in C has a very interesting history. It was written in 1855, but not played until 1937. Bizet composed the symphony as a student work while he was at the Conservatoire de Paris. He studied under Charles Gounod. Gounod had composed his Symphony in D. Bizet's Symphony in C has many elements that are are taken directly from the Gounod composition. If you listen to both works you will hear the shared elements. Apparently, Bizet never thought his composition would be played in concert....
  • Enrique Granados /// 12 Spanish Dances Op 37

    YouTube ^ | various | Enrique Granados
    The twelve Spanish Dances, Op.37, were composed in 1890, and initially published in four sets of three dances each. These early works, inspired by the Spanish national school of Felipe Pedrell, were one of Granados' first successes as a composer, and have become one of his most popular piano works, second only to the masterly Goyescas. The 12 Spanish Dances have been transcribed for guitar as well as for orchestra, and are more often heard on the guitar than on the piano, especially the famous 5th dance, Andaluza (sometimes named Playera), which is one of the most performed Spanish classical...

    Yes, yes, the Bible describes the relationship between Christ and the Church as a bridegroom and bride, and the Song of Songs is pretty explicit (and is traditionally interpreted as being about the relationship between Christ and the Church), but still – anyone else feel a bit awkward by this phenomenon?
