A Morning With Tchaikovsky

Awaken Light Spirit… I Becon Thee

Whilst preparing to Write my 31st Blog Post, Fear of Writing Success, which I will Write here in a bit, I tossed on my Pandora Station, Wolfgang Amadeus as I named it, which is basically my Classical Music Station. As I noted in my In Moments of Darkness – Puccini Post, my Three Favorite Composers are Mozart, Puccini and Tchaikovsky. Anyway, like I say, as I was preparing to Write my Next Blog Post, this Song came on and Whammed me. Tchaikovky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, OP 35. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard it, though part of it almost sounds Familiar, like someone had based a part of a Film Musical Score on it either Consciously, or Unconsciously. Well, here’s the Piece, make sure you listen until at least the 6th Minute 11th-12th Second of this Video. It is Heroic, and Magnificent. Enjoy

The Version I heard on Pandora was from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The Version Above is Kyung-Wha Chung the 1st Movement, Part 1 of 2.

May 7th 1840-November 6th 1893

Alright, back to Work/Writing, Thanks for Sharing the Moment

  1. Such a relief others still like real music like this, I probably have one friend that’s into classical, the rest, well, are different.

  2. Yah know, I listen to Trance, Emotional Rock, Classical, even some Pop. On occasions, 60’s Music, sometimes 70’s, and sometimes 80’s. Not so much 90’s, but I really grew up in the 70’s 80’s. Depending on my Mood I suppose. But Classical Music, there’s something Fundamentally Gripping to me. I certainly can’t listen to it 24/7, but in times where either I want to reach a very Rich Deep Place, or just to experience the Colorful Swaying Images that go through my head (Disney’s Original Fantasia is a Perfect Example) as I listen. It’s very hard to put what Music does for us as Human’s, but I just Love Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Puccini. I’ve heard all sorts of other Composers that do Astounding Work, but these three I guess I relate to/with in some way. Have you ever Listened to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Sweet without the Ballet as a Distraction. Don’t get me wrong, I actually really like The Ballet, and Ballet in general. However, I’ve yet to see a Production that nearly Matches the Robust Dynamics of the Music that he had Written for it. He also did Sleeping Beauty, which is just unbelievable, and may be one of the Main Reasons that Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty is my Favorite of his Animated Films.

    A bit more.

    One of my Favorite Pieces and…

    My Favorite Scene and Piece of Music in Sleeping Beauty…

    Very good choice. I like Tchaikovsky too, of course the pioan concerto,but nrs 2 and 3 as well, his 1st,5th and 6th symphony, the ballets and his string quartet. I also like his opera’s, Yevgeny Onegin and Pique dame, both based on Pushkin. Thank you for posting

    • I love Sleeping Beauty (Looks like the Video doesn’t work anymore in the Above Comment), and The Nutcracker. I often feel that the Music in The Nutcracker blows away the actual Productions of the Ballets that are actually made. But on an Occasion, I do actually like the Production. I’ll have to check out the one’s you mentioned.

      Thanks for the Comment Steph

    Let me know what you think about them. Symphony #1 has a video on my Music page.

    • Wow, yes, I know 1 very well… Beautiful. 2 is Extraordinary, I think I’ve heard it, but I can’t be sure. 3 also I may have heard, not sure though… Just lovely. Wow, 5 is amazing. Wow, 6 is unbelievable. Wow Yevgeny Onegin looks very good. My Sister probably knows all of these, lol. Wow, Pique dame also looks unbelievable. I’ll have to sit down and watch them all the way through at some point.

      Thanks so much for cueing me in on some of these. Truth be known, as much as I love Mozart, Puccini and Tchaikovsky, I haven’t researched all that they’ve done, so I appreciate it.
