posted Dec 27, 2010, 11:20 PM by Xun Pan   [ updated Jan 2, 2011, 8:51 PM ]

This audio clip is Xun Pan playing "Picture at an Exhibition" composed by Modest Mussorgsky
.

Modest Mussorgsky
(1839 – 1881) is one of the Russian composers known as "The Five". He was an innovator of Russian music in the romantic period.

The whole audio clip is about 30 minutes, which exceed the duration limitation I can upload to YouTube. I have to break up this audio clip to three audio clips. They were originally put into one YouTube playlist. It will play automatically one by one and you can also mouse over to select the one to listen to if you want to jump to one clip or in a hurry to .... I don't know. However, some browsers have problem to display the playlist in web page and I have to post them in three separate YouTube videos.

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 12

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 12 . Franz Liszt


 
 
 

Franz Liszt (1811 - 1886) was a 19th century Hungarian pianist and composer.  Compared to other musicians, he enjoyed a long life. We are all mortals, that's why I intentionally put the three photos above for Franz Liszt from young age to silver age.  Liszt was said to be the most technically advanced pianist of his age and perhaps the greatest pianist of all time.

All Tchiakovsky Program

posted Dec 27, 2010, 4:43 PM by Xun Pan   [ updated Jan 2, 2011, 1:50 PM ]

Some of Tchiakovsky's beautiful piano music here, including "Romance in F, Op. 51", No. 5, "By The Hearth", "Barcarolle", "Autumn Song" and "Troika", are uploaded to YouTube today.  

Tired of the 15 minutes video length limitation (before, it was 10 minutes) on YouTube, I have a new adventure today by trying the video upload service from Vimes.com.  With Vimes's free account, I can upload Tchiakovsky's Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor, Op. 23 without breaking up the audio clip, which is more than 30 minutes. However, I can only upload this video for this week. Vimes has a weekly limit of 500 MB for the free account. There are always pros and cons. Check out this audio at the bottom of this post.

Scenes from Childhood

posted Dec 25, 2010, 7:26 AM by Xun Pan   [ updated Jan 2, 2011, 1:30 PM ]


Xun Pan playing Schumann's Kinderszenen (a.k.a "Scenes from Childhood"),  completed in 1838 and a favorite of Schumann's piano works. Robert Schumann (1810 – 1856) was a German composer and influential music critic. He is regarded as one of the greatest and most representative composers of the Romantic era. 

Photos from the YouTube clips are taken from the Amish neighbor at Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the county where my family and I are living now. 

The following is from my 12 year old niece, Ellen. I really have no idea what she was talking about:
"One time, at a piano concert, Schumann had sang to the audience, "Lets dance to this song! Lets dance to this song! Lets d-d-d-d-d-d-d~ dance to this song!"  Back then, many composers were old fashioned and didn't have taste in modern music, but Schumann was different, he was once the #1 youtuber in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He even inspired Wong Fu Productions and kevjumba into making their video on "Dance to this Song." No composer has ever done this, he is a youtube inspiration!"
