Aha. Are you familiar with the nine Beethoven symphonies under René Leibowitz? Fantastic!

Heard this today as the background music to a scene from Mr. Robot. Holst's The Planets suite has always afforded rich pickings for makers of films and TV programmes:

The soprano whom I used to help with her parts (she sings in a semi-professional choir) has resumed singing again after a bout of illness. One of the pieces I helped her with today was this incredibly moving Requiem by Herbert Howells:

Another work on that programme is Domenico Scarlatti's Stabat Mater. (Not to be confused with the one written by his father Allessandro.)

This spectacular sequence is from part two of Eisenstein's Ivan the Terrible. Prokofiev supplies the equally spectacular music.

Michael Nyman's Music After a While narrowly avoided being unceremoniously dumped in the ambient thread. It was the association with Henry Purcell's Music For a While that saved the day (see details in link):

My last major project at the Endless Harmony forum was a seven-post rundown of Gustav Holst's orchestral suite The Planets.

That mini-series was prompted by the unexpected inclusion of the final movement, "Neptune, the Mystic", as background music in a TV show, where it represented alienation rather than the hush of concentration Holst intended. You'll need to crank up the volume considerably as I believe the loudest it gets is mezzo-piano:

It's that day again. This rendition of Wagner's "Good Friday Music" is for halblaineisgood aka Treatzapiza, who I hope is doing well.

Last week we attended a concert for string quartet. Normally I'm not a chamber music fan at all but this programme was special. Aside from Steve Reich's Different Trains for string quartet and tape (see today's ambient topic), what attracted us was a work by John Luther Adams, The Wind in High Places. We'd been bowled over by Adams's recent orchestral masterpiece Becoming Desert a while back and this older work didn't disappoint (read the linked wiki page for essential details). Here's part two:

I'm no fan of Bach (unless Glenn Gould is playing it) but this motet I heard at the funeral service of a local choral conductor was very moving indeed. Maybe the occasion had something to do with it. That said, the deceased was only the most fleeting of acquaintances. (The music starts about half a minute in.)
