She is. Besides being a multi-instrumentalist, she's known mainly in Beach Boy Land as an indefatigable and highly respected researcher. She has a new project in the offing (see here ).

Many of the best ones are earlier down in the list. She's been trotting them out at more than one a day! Shocked

Check out this hard rock take on "Messiah in French Overture"--incredible!!

This one kicks similar ass but it's cleaner (no freaked out ending this time):

Actually she tells me (in a Smiley post) she's planning to incorporate all the fugal responses over time followed by a repeat of the "frenchy opening portion". (Two already have them, "Rodelinda" and "Giulio Cesare"--consequently they're much longer than the rest.) But that it's quite heavy going at times. I can believe that! Shocked

Now that I've listened to all of them so far, I've moved on to two fabulous compilations of Handel's overtures and sinfonias in their original orchestral versions. This is the first, devoted to his oratorios:

"H" has fingers in several musical pies right now. One is a complete reworking of Handel's opera Rodelinda. (See the Bandcamp link a first posts back for more info.) She'll be playing everything and singing some of it--there will almost certainly be other vocalists involved. It promises to be a long-term (not to say ambitious) project. She's uploaded some of the sketches and tryouts on SoundCloud (not the finished stuff). From act one, this is "Dove sei, amato bene" in a fairly advanced form. Those vocal harmonies towards the end are sensational!

I've always had a problem with Bach (I may have mentioned this before). Well, after my initiation into Handel I brought up the subject at Smiley. "H" encouraged me to look into JSB more seriously... 

I take it you know Bach went on a 280-mile hike from Arnstadt near Weimar to Lübeck in the north of Germany to visit his idol, the composer and organist Dieterich Buxtehude. (Yes, on foot--and back again!!) After seeing a TV documentary on this extraordinary feat, I decided I would get into Bach via Dietrich B. 

This next work is in what they call the "Massive Baroque" style, being for six mixed groups of singers and instrumentalists and organ. (The organ in the church where DB played was flanked by six balconies.) The magnificent Benedicam Dominum (BuxWV 113) is here performed by the Göteborg Baroque Soloists:

The "Baroque Music" topic is getting a good run for its money these days. Smiley's aeijtzsche tells me that "Jesu, Meines Lebens Leben" is her favourite Buxtehude work. I can understand why. I love the seriously hypnotic bass pattern throughout most of it and the interlocking violin parts (if you follow the score). Wonderful stuff. Judging from Mr. B's wiki page, I see I shall be sticking with him for a while...

My pleasure. I have more Buxtehude lined up for later. Meanwhile this is the latest "Frenchie" ouverture, quite a long one and probably one of the last before JH starts adding fugues and allegros. I love that bass! Each of these pieces is quite unique--there's always something distinguishing it from the others:

https://soundcloud.com/joshilyn-hoisington/semele-ouverture

And for comparison here's Handel's original (complete) overture to Semele

More Buxtehude is being thrust my way by the intrepid JH. And it's all of a manageable length so it bears repeated listens. This is the sublime "Herlich tut mich verlangen", featuring the dulcit tones of the German soprano Gerlinde Sämann. That closing phrase with the long note! Real chills-down-the-spine stuff.

A spot of Purcell now. The solo soprano is Susan Hamilton, with a voice to kill for, if aeijtzsche is to be believed.

Just brilliant! Sounds similar to pieces I've used for my MR vids when visiting palaces.

The Baroque Music thread is thriving! Very Happy

Last week my wife saw the contralto Nathalie Stutzmann in her role as conductor during a lunchtime rehearsal, putting the local orchestra and the solo hornist through their paces in Mozart's fourth concerto for that instrument. Needless to say, she sang all the parts that needed correcting! This is her in the role of Arsace, Prince of Corinth, singing "Furibondo spira il vento" from Partenope, "a rare Handel comedy!"

Some Bach now (my, times have changed!), played by Pierre Hantaï, another JH recommendation: "He gets the baroque thing without going over the top, and is a very sensitive, methodical player." Here he is in Bach's Harpsichord Concerto in D Minor (BWV 1052) under Jordi Savall:

These sabbaticals are all very well but sometimes one has to swallow one's pride and accept one's fate at the hands of the Bored.king

Today is the feast day of St. Cecilia and what better way to celebrate it than with Handel's Ode for St. Cecilia's Day. The version I chose refuses to be embedded so here's the link (if you ask me, it's the 5th, 6th and 7th movements--see the wiki page):

Back to Buxtehude, who has now been elevated to one of my three B's, the others being Berlioz and Berg (sorry, Brahms and Ludwig Van!). I heard this brief elegiac cantata this morning on Saturday's "religious hour" on Dutch classical radio. The version linked here features the same singers and instrumentalists that perform on the CD included in my library book about Herr B:

Yes, it's a lovely piece. In fact that was the first Buxtehude vocal work recommended to me. I'm now making my way through a second volume of his vocal music. It's full of remarkable ideas, such as the striking "clarion calls" in Ich suchte des Nachts in meinem Bette (first heard here just after 9:05). It almost as though Bach was a step backwards in comparison! 

Oooff! Looking at the list of CDs in the wiki link, I see I still have enough Buxtehude to listen to!
