[Memento mori #3… ]

The Isle of the Dead, Symphonic poem Op. 29 (Rachmaninov)
Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra
Sir Andrew Davis, conductor (1998)
Painting: “Isle of the Dead”, Arnold Böcklin

// “… Isle of the Dead, Op. 29, is a symphonic poem composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff, written in the key of A minor. He concluded the composition while staying in Dresden in 1908. It is considered a classic example of Russian late-Romanticism of the beginning of the 20th century. The piece was inspired by a black and white reproduction of Arnold Böcklin’s painting, Isle of the Dead, which Rachmaninoff saw in Paris in 1907. Rachmaninoff was disappointed by the original painting when he later saw it, saying, “If I had seen first the original, I, probably, would have not written my Isle of the Dead. I like it in black and white.” …” | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_the_Dead_%28Rachmaninoff%29 (30 April 2016) // ” … Böcklin … verlor acht seiner vierzehn Kinder … ” https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Wassiljewitsch_Rachmaninow // https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die_Toteninsel

[Farm (1971)… ]


01 – Sunshine In My Window [00:00]
02 – Cottonfield Woman [03:59]
03 – Statesboro Blues [07:59]
04 – Jungle Song [12:24]
05 – Let That Boy Boogie [20:13]

Tasty rural boogie blues rock with Crazy Horse influences, this lone album from Illinois’ sextet Farm is an air-guitarist’s delight. Intricate, dual guitar interplay is the order of the day, with lots of meandering solos full of those West Coast druggy vibes. If you’ve worn out all your bootleg outtakes of David Crosby and The Pure Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra’s Wally heider sessions, then this is the next logical step for your musical mind expansion. … | http://psychedelicbaby.blogspot.de/2013/10/farm-farm-1971-review.html

C. FULLER on 15 Jun. 2009: ” … Jean-Baptiste “Django” Reinhardt (January 23, 1910 – May 16, 1953) was a Belgian Sinto Gypsy jazz guitarist and remains one of the most renowned jazz guitarists due to his innovative and distinctive playing. With French jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli (January 26, 1908 – December 1, 1997) they formed the Quintette du Hot Club de France and it became the most famous of all-string jazz bands. …”

roger haywood on 10 Aug. 2013: ” … 1930s jazz that is still played today … Django was extraordinary in his playing and his life. He lost a few fingers in an accident but you could never guess that from the fluidity of his guitar playing. Also questions still remain on how a gipsy musician survived (indeed was celebrated) through the wartime in a Nazi-occupied Paris?…”

Ô, doux printemps d’autre fois, vertes saisons,
Vous avez fui pour toujours!
Je ne vois plus le ciel bleu;
Je n’entends plus les chants joyeux des oiseaux!
En emportant mon bonheur, mon bonheur…
Ô bien-amé, tu t’en es allé!
Et c’est en vain que [le printemps revient!]
Oui, sans retour,
avec toi, le gai soleil,
Les jours riants sont partis!
Comme en mon coeur tout est sombre et glacé!
Tout est flétri
pour toujours!

[O sweet springtimes of old verdant seasons
You have fled forever
I no longer see the blue sky
I no longer hear the bird’s joyful singing
And, taking my happiness with you
You have gone on your way my love!
In vain Spring returns
Yes, never to return
The bright sun has gone with you
The days of happiness have fled
How gloomy and cold is my heart
All is withered

” … Der Ausdruck Elegie oder Klagegedicht bezeichnet ein oft in Distichen verfasstes Gedicht, das nach heutigem Verständnis meist traurige, klagende Themen zum Inhalt hat. Seit den römischen Elegikern Tibull, Properz und Ovid wurde ein Trauer- und Klagecharakter sowie eine sehnsuchtsvolle, schwermütige Grundstimmung zum dominierenden Inhalt. … Schiller begreift das Elegische [ ] nicht mehr als melancholische Vergegenwärtigung vergangenen Glücks … , sondern als Bruch zwischen Natur und Ideal. …” https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elegie (24. März 2016)
