Most beautiful thing you have ever heard

Post by ttf_lutherbone » Sat Aug 30, 2003 10:52 pm

I have a recording of the Kantorei of Concordia Theological Seminary in a setting of the "Te Deum". It has two trombones, organ, and a token trumpet. The tune that is used is from "Jupiter" from Holst's "The Planets". Let me put it this way, if I knew that it was truly a hymn that Holst wrote, my wife would have had it when she came down the aisle 6+ years ago.

The Christmas Song solo by Dick Nash is a personal fav....Franz Biebl Ave Maria for choir of voices or bones is as good as it gets. There was an earlier vote for Stravinsky Sym. of Psalms, agree to that 100%.

"A Time For Love"  by some army/navy/air force band i heard in high school.  the lead trombone player had this amazing sound, like if you took watrous's sound and mashed 4 red bells into it, that's what he sounded like.  just really a sweet sound on a great song.

The brasses of my wind ensemble played "Let thy Holy Presence", by Tschesnokoff, transcribed from male choir by Bill Holcombe. It truly gave me chills to play, and a non-musician friend of mine (that I dragged out on the promise of beer) gave me heck  afterwards. He wasn't used to getting all choked up out in public like that!

I love listening to Lindbergs opening of de Frumerie's Concerto for Trombone on the "Romantic" CD. The Grondahl is a close second.

A solo by a alto sax my age at a weekend band clinic at Mississippi State University. IT's the brief sax solo in Allegro and Intermezzo. It was really pretty sounding the very first time we played through it(sightreading) he did very well... Two days later... On stage at MSU in front of a sold out crowd... he played it so beautifully it seriously brought tears to my eyes... yep... a trombone sittin first chair on the last row with tears in his eyes. There was so much emotion behind the music and it seems he even added a good deal more of his own to it. He didn't just play the solo... he made himself a part of it.

Rachmaninoffs 18th varitation from rapsody on a theme by Paganini.  Written for piano and orchestra.  Played in the movies Somewhere in Time and in Groundhog Day.  I first heard it performed by Victor Borge.

Will bradley's playing in "I don't stand a Ghost of a Chance with You". I really think he played with more heart and soul then Dorsey did at his best. His solo on this is amazing, and sound, wow! Just beautiful. You could hear some really solid legit aspects to his sound. Just absolutely beautiful. You can hear this if you but the CD "Hellalujah", featuring him and his orchestra; this CD has been out a short time. And for just touching a note, Jack Jenny's High Fs in two takes of Stardust he made with his own band; again this on a CD that you can buy almost anywhere. Man, he just touchs those notes, and what a sound, wow!

1. Giovanni Gabrieli's Canzona per Sonare no. 2 (aka Canzon Seconda a 4).  On CD "Gabrieli in Venice" by London Brass/Philip Pickett conducting, Apex 0927 40823 2.

2. Almost any G Gabrieli vocal+organ+brass -- one example CD "In Festo Sanctissimae Trinitatae" by Choeur de Chambre de Namur + Fenice, Tubery conducting; Ricercar 259. But it is all gorgeous music.  If you can find the words and translate, many/most are also just beautiful and peaceful prayers at the same time.

3. Adam Woolf, Songs without Words.  From his website: "Joined by a wonderful team of colleagues: Siobhán Armstrong-harp, Kathryn Cok-keyboards, Nicholas Milne-viola da gamba, Eligio Quinteiro-theorbo; the first commercial CD to feature the sackbut purely as a solo instrument in 16th and 17th century music. Monteverdi, Frescobaldi, Schutz, etc etc etc.

Good resurrection...

In the last couple of days I've become completely obsessed with an old English folk song that popped up randomly on BBC Radio 3 - 'The Three Ravens'. Such a haunting melody when sung with a clear voice... And such a sad story... Though a rather enigmatic narrative.

Here's several different versions from YouTube:
Andreas Scholl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KsNCLjMgTM
Evelyn Tubb: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDRjF6t-Zl8
Peter, Paul and Mary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cyvYI_DDJg
Djazia Satour: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3KjjERlsnw

and here's a modern take on it. Completely different tune, by John Harle, the saxophonist, but very much captures the spirit of the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jws_UyDwlFs

I've also enjoyed that one VERY MUCH for years. I mentioned that on another thread here, and someone said it isn't period-accurate.
http://tromboneforum.org/index.php/topi ... 0/all.html -- reply #15
I don't know much about "period-accurate" performance and respect and much appreciate the education from those who know more.  Even that London Brass CD I mentioned, I understand, isn't completely "period-accurate."

I also got a London Cornett+Sackbutt Ensemble CD of Gabrieli's "Canzoni & Sonate" that I understand IS more period-accurate.

The differences in the performances and instruments are easy to hear.  And there's a delicacy and intimacy to the period-accurate performances which make them very beautiful music indeed.  That said, I still admire and enjoy the Biggs performances.  Perhaps they are a significant "re-interpretation" of how the music may have been performed in 1590's - 1610's.  But music does get re-interpreted over time and I enjoy this one.

Bottom line to me --- Gabrieli wrote some breathtakingly GORGEOUS music. I'm now lucky to hear 3 different performances of many of his beautiful pieces.  And all the performances are different and ... they are all still gorgeous to my hearing.  Bravo to Gabrieli and to those who get to play his stuff.

I did this Canzona per Sonare No. 2 last summer with a couple pals in church.  Lord knows it wasn't a remarkable performance by anyone's standards.  But the joy of being in the middle of the music and behind a horn and being a part of it was ... just THRILLING for a flat-out amateur like me.

I second Berstein's Mahler 7 Nachtmusik but a couple that I think no one can go without listening to in their lifetime.
- Gavin Bryars, Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me
- Steve Reich, Daniel Variations
- Mozart, Requiem (Academy of St. Martin's on the Field)
- Dvorak, Cello Concerto (Gothenberg Symphony Orchestra, Helmerson)

The other one I have to say is the final movement of Mahler 9. The first time I performed this I almost cried on stage.

Joe Alessi just did a residency here at UA including a solo recital, lessons, masterclasses, and a performance of the Bourgeois with the wind ensemble.  All of his playing was absolutely top-notch, world-class, stellar.  Still - for me, what I can't get out of my head, is the Elkjer arrangement of the Largo from the Vivaldi Piccolo Concerto that he played.  I've been playing for a while now - and I had no idea the trombone could sound like that.



Honorable mention (and this is going to sound so UA-biased it's not funny) has to go to Demondrae Thurman's entire Songs of a Wayfarer CD.  It hit me at the end of that disc that I'd just listened to a euphonium cd and absolutely LOVED it.



These are not necessarily my all-time favorite performances... but for beauty, tops.

someone should transcribe it for trombone choir. I am so sick of all the bad trombone choir pieces. (I know... copyright etc)

Had the enormous plesure to play the band arrangement of sleep in my band.

When people played mostly in tune (yes...mostly.) it was beautiful. I cannot imagine the TRUE beauty of it when it is played by the pros.

Those intervals...OH MY GOD  Image

It's hard to say which is the most beautiful.  There is so much.  But here are a couple that I keep going back to for their musical beauty.

Bill Pearce - You Needed Me

Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No.2

Reading back through this thread many spoke of their emotional response to the beautiful music they have encountered or been a part of.

Last year our concert band played a piece called American Elegy as our own choice at the state band championships.  We rehearsed it many times before.  It could have become old hat to us but on the day we really nailed it.  That was a quietly emotional moment.  Not because we finally got it but the emotion in the music was expressed so clearly.  The other pieces we did that day failed to produce the same reaction.

It has intrigued me for a while now why amazingly beautiful music can generate such an emotional response. 

We typically don't have the same reaction to a beautiful meal or a beautiful landscape scene. 

I guess that it is a measure of the power of music.

Trombone-wise:

When we played Bolero in my community band, and the ex-professional trombonist played the solo.

The first time I heard it, my breath caught in my throat.
I'd never heard trombone playing like that on an amateur level, or heard that kind of sound coming from eight feet away.
I stopped accepting my own skill level as "good enough for community band" and got more serious about trombone after that.
