    Generally, "&", but in the case of compound surnames, it is like the hyphen in Twinkengham-Mulberry or Mounstratten-Sherwood, although withOUT the same hype surrounding British counterparts-... just in case you were serious about it

    But I appreciate all that stepped descending and ascending. Perhaps it needs to be redone for a reduced orchestra. I saw a performance of The Rape of Lucretia and was astonished to find at interval that so much mellifluousness was being created by Britten using just 13 instruments.

    I particularly love the Andante (the first 8 minutes of this clip) because of the dialogue between the oboe and clarinet against the throbbing background.

    I have already mentioned the Andante in post #10 is a kind of dialogue between the oboe and clarinet. It is like two lovers making love.

    I can imagine me and Dejavudoo making love to it. The other instruments make the sound of a heartbeat in the background then they throb more urgently until they're almost doing a samba to accompany our love-making.

    I guess some would call Mozart's sonatas "thin" too... since by using such terms there we are talking no meaning but just feelings ... Like Schumann primarily eliciting the term "ghastly" in my mind.

    99.99% of all that has ever been produced is not worth preserving, so it is not about time but about some specific productions that were related, in a more general context from those particular creations, to specific forms of production in certain eras.
    As for music, I find it funny how you won't find not even a single production having evolved, even as an isolated phaenomenon, from the XVIIIth century musical rhetoric, just as Beethoven was music produced away from Haendel's style, yet still not departing from the same sense of global architecture of the pieces, instead of just rambling away following mere permutations, inversions and what not on the mere harmonical level, as in Wagner, or else just mediocre creations of the 99.99%, as was the case of Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns...

    I'd say Mozart has a direct simplicity with a smallish orchestra.

    My friend, the professional musician, told me Schumann was the weakest of the "great composers' because although he had a large orchestra he was lazy in orchestrating for it. The strings are going Dum-dah-de-dah simultaneous to the wind section going Dum-dah-de-dah simultaneous to the horn section going Dum-dah-de-dah.

    I wonder how much acoustics play a part? Modern composers (Ravel, Prokofiev) are able to get sophisticated sounds with smaller forces in well-designed halls and via better gramophone recordings. Those prior to Mozart (whose work I find rather arid) had to write simpler pieces for halls with unsatisfactory acoustics.

    Recorded with sophisticated microphones in the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory



    Google tells me this hall had to closed for reconstruction for the whole seasons of 2010 and 2011 because modern concert-goers expect a much more responsive acoustic.


    I heard that concertgoers complained at the 1951 opening of London's Royal Festival Hall— I can't hear the music for the notes! they said. But the Royal Festival Hall has his its acoustics redone to fit modern expectations

    I was listening to the conductor Andre Molino talk on the radio yesterday and he has convinced me that all music should be judged on its context. He says he conducts 'sacred music' differently according to whether its performed in a church or a concert hall.

    I say occasional music such as the 'Water Music', 'Fireworks Music', Goldberg Variations were written for its performing context. And that someone like Caballe who could sing to a room of 2000 people CANNOT be compared to someone like Enrique Iglesias whose voice would be inaudible to more than five of them.

    Yes?

    One doesn't need to compare. Byron created poems and became famous across the world while others create stuff in their own room and become famous in their own mind. The important thing is to create! Loners don't need to be famous.
