Magnets and miracles. Loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics

Following "Dieci brani da ascoltare almeno una volta nella vita" ("10 songs you should listen to before you die") and the books on Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki, Jacopo Caneva's latest work carries out a short, but in-depth study on the concepts of loneliness and nostalgia in Pink Floyd's lyrics, from "The Dark Side of the Moon" to "The Wall". The young writer unveils the common ground of apparently different lyrics: the memory of Syd Barrett, the genius and first leader of the group, the "crazy diamond" who gave the band the name of Pink Floyd, delivering it to myth, disappearing in anonymity after troublesome years. The book is a tribute to the legendary English rock-band and a celebration of the recently released "The Endless River", a new album of previously unreleased songs.

Klaviersonate in G-Dur, Piano Sonata in G Major: Piano Score (Bisel Classics Book 247)

With his series of sonatas dating back to the publication year of 1793, Reichardt grants us a secret glance into his garden that went down in literary history as the Harborage of Romanticism. Music was played in the open there, and the piano was purposely placed in a garden house. This revives one of the most intimate music traditions of romanticism, domestic music. The movements are predominantly set in a merry Allegro and conjure the careless garden life, an inspiration for many distinguished visionaries of the romantic era. One is bound to find a treasure of romantic salon music.

-----

Mit seiner 1793 publizierten Sonatenreihe erlaubt uns Reichardt einen Blick in sein Zauberreich, den Garten, der als ,,Herberge der Romantik" in die Literaturgeschichte einging. Dort wurde im Freien musiziert, und das Klavier war eigens in eine Gartenlaube platziert worden. Die intimste Form romantischer Musiktradition, die Hausmusik, lebt so wieder auf. Die grossteils mit frohlichem Allegro bezeichneten Satze beschworen die unbeschwerte Stimmung in jenem Garten herauf, der fur namhafte Visionare des romantischen Gedankengutes zur Inspiration wurde. Der Interpret findet so eine Perle romantischer Salonmusik, die ein Zeitfenster zu jenem ,,Dichterparadies" eroffnet.

Klaviersonate in C-Dur, Opus 33 No. 1 / Piano Sonata in C-Major: Piano Score (Bisel Classics Book 285)

In his series of three sonatas Op. 33 Wolfl explored the extended

range of the newly developed piano by the manufacturer

Broadwood. The charming sonatas originated during his most

successful period, the London years. A contemporary lexicon

mentions 1807 as the year of their genesis. With their delicate

structure and overall transparency the sonatas still do not fail to

display moments of virtuosity. The fact that Wolfl in his time was

considered the best piano teacher in London, does not limit the

use of the sonatas to the study room. Their extraordinary beauty

makes them just as precious as concert pieces.

In seiner Sonatenreihe Op. 33 experimentierte Wolfl mit dem

erweiterten Umfang des neu entwickelten Klaviers der Firma

Broadwood. Die charmanten Sonaten stammen aus seiner

erfolgreichsten Zeit, den Londoner Jahren. Ein zeitgenossisches

Lexikon erwahnt das Jahr 1807 als das Entstehungsjahr. Mit ihrer

delikaten Struktur und der transparenten Phrasengestaltung

entbehren die Sonaten dennoch nicht der Virtuositat. Die

Tatsache, dass Wolfl zu jener Zeit als der beste Klavierlehrer in

London bekannt war, beschrankt ihre Nutzung nicht auf das

Studierzimmer. Durch ihre reizvolle Gestaltung sind sie auch als

Konzertliteratur bestens einsetzbar.

Klaviersonate in C-Dur, Opus 9, No. 2 - Piano Sonata in C Major: Piano Solo (Bisel Classics Book 260)

The genesis of Ries' piano sonatas Op. 9 dates back to his second stay in Vienna, a troublesome phase in his life, when he was trying to regain ground in the imperial city, heavily scarred by the Coalition War. The compositions showcase his skills as a pianist, and bear those stylistic hallmarks that are so typical of his musical idiom, maybe due to the fact that he grew up in Bonn, next to the gigantic river Rhine. Softly flowing phrases, an immense width and seemingly endless romantic melodies, coupled with quite a few technical challenges, make the heart of every pianist beat faster.

Die Klaviersonaten Op. 9 von Ferdinand Ries entstanden wahrend des zweiten Wien-Aufenthalts des Komponisten, jener von Muhen gezeichneten Phase seines Lebens, in der er versuchte, in der immer noch von den Folgen des Koalitionskrieges schwer gezeichneten Kaiserstadt neu Fuss zu fassen. Die Werke zeugen von Ries` beachtlichen pianistischen Fahigkeiten, und tragen jene stilistischen Eigenschaften, die so typisch fur die Musiksprache des in Bonn am Rhein geborenen sind. Weich fliessende Phrasen, eine ungeheure Breite, und grosse endlos scheinende romantische Melodien, gepaart mit technischen Raffinessen lassen das Herz jedes Pianisten hoher schlagen.
