OCTOPATH TRAVELER!!! This game looks so awesome! …I wish I had a switch... :'(
"【The Legend of Zelda Jazz】Cafe Music Cover - Smooth Jazz & Bossa Nova Music for Work & Study" - Cafe Music BGM channel | Week NaN | VGM
Alright, here's some VGM, and it's JAZZY!
...What week is this anyway?
YOU KNOW YOU WANTED THIS!
Ok, so it's not VGM, technically... but it's by a VGM artist, and I'm the only active musescorer on this group in a long time.
Amazing Jazz, huh? And so many memories...
I happened to come across this yesterday while looking for Southern Gospel music!
I hope you enjoy it!
"Mother: Pollyanna Jazz/Funk Cover" - Insaneintherainmusic (ft. Family Jules, Adrisaurus, and Sab Irene) | Week 47 | VGM
The most iconic song from the series, in what I believe to be the best presentation ever!
How 'bout dat!? The lyrics are dime-a-dozen, but the performance is great. Can't get over that cowbell dancing! Hilarious.
Here is a solo piano piece performed by The Piano Guys' Jon Schmidt! I hope you enjoy it :D
I'm sorry to be posting a day late. Yesterday was a very busy day! I present to you a track from the Elder Scrolls video game soundtrack. This is definitely one of my favorites because of the viola and penny whistle solos!
I'm so sorry it's been a while since we've posted anything in this group. I will pick up where we left off on Week 46!
Now, I present to you the main theme from Infinity War! I don't usually enjoy the sound of super hero movie soundtracks, but this one is DIFFERENT! I love how dramatic and classical this track sounds. It reminds me of one of Tchaikovsky's elegies. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I do! It's a new favorite of mine :')
Hello again! :D
Here is the fourth and final movement of James Barnes third symphony, titled "The Tragic." This sounds quite different as it was written for concert band instead of symphony orchestra. I am actually performing this on clarinet in a university band this November!
You may be wondering why such a happy movement is included in a symphony that is noted as tragic. Well, this composition was the most emotionally draining for Barnes as he had just lost his young daughter, Natalie, in a car accident. The first two-three movements were very sad and emotional due to his breaking heart. When he reached this final movement, he had finally let go of his sadness and thought of the joy his daughter was experiencing in heaven.
I hope you enjoy!
Here is a beautiful instrumental piece by composer and pianist, Paul Cardall. It is based of of the hymn 'I Know That My Redeemer Lives'. Whenever I'm sad or stressed, this song gives me peace knowing that Jesus is alive and cares for me.
I hope you enjoy it!
I almost forgot it was Thursday. Whoops...
This week I share a romantic composer who was the son of a very famous composer. And that would be Franz Xaver Wolfgang Mozart. The Son of Amadeus Mozart.
Imagine what that must have been like in the shadow of such a prolific father. And to me that makes his works that much more inspiring.
He made his debut at 13 years of age. Unlike his father at a much younger age.
You can hear the influence his father had on him.
Today I share his 2nd piano concerto. I found this to be very delightful.
Hope you all enjoy. :)
This is a really great compilation, and I hope you enjoy it! It features Insaneintherainmusic, as well as several artists I am not as familiar with. I really like the Gerudo Valley remix, it's so chill in contrast to the original, which was very... energetic.
And did I mention the cover art is amazing!?
Today I focus on Classical composer Cayetano Brunetti.
Who was Italian but oddly enough active in composing in Spain. While his music was influential at the court where he was, very little of his music was published during his lifetime.
he composed 451 pieces.
Today I share one of his Sinfonía's
Amazing Medley done on the Labo Piano! All hail the Nintendo Switch! This is really pretty amazing, and I just love the way the songs transition so smoothly.
This week I focus on romantic composer John Field.
Field is best known as the inventor of the nocturne.
Who was an Irish pianist, composer, and teacher. And studied under Clementi.
Field was very highly regarded by his contemporaries and his playing and compositions influenced many major composers, including Frédéric Chopin, Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann, and Franz Liszt.
Today I share his Nocturne no. 2.
If you would like to listen to all his nocturnes to see what Chopin admired enough to make the genre famous.
here is a link to all 18 of his:
Here is a very epic orchestral piece that I can't get out of my head. I happen to know the composer, soprano soloist, and flutist in this song!!
I highly recommend downloading his album 'Day To Day' on iTunes. It is absolutely amazing!
This is a really cool song a found a few days ago, with a killer drop and epic melody. Enjoy!
FINALLY!!!! IT CAME OUT!!!! This new album of more EDMy (pronounced ee-dee-emy definition: More like true EDM) songs (they now contain drops!!!) is awesome. My personal favorites are Together, Power, and Imagine. Hope you like it!
Here is an exciting track from the first Shrek movie, composed by Harry Gregson-Williams and John Powell! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :D
By the way, I will be gone next week to learn how to score films. I won't be able to post next Thursday.
Here is a beautiful and peaceful piano solo by Greg Maroney. It is so great to listen to when studying or just rewinding from a busy day.
This week, Im focusing on Hopex.
He is kind of unknown, but that will change. He has some killer drops and beats in all of his songs. Im looking at the weekly trap nation playlist, and I see him. I look at all of his songs and find some that I like.
Im mainly focusing on Bang Dem, but Roadrunner, and Oxygen (With BISZ3R) are good as well.
I will be doing soundcloud instead of youtube.
See ya next week.
NOTE: THAT REALLY ANNOYING GUY IS BANNED!!!!!!
Today I focus on his flute concerto in D major:
Today I focus on Classical composer Niccolò Piccinni.
Who oddly enough was famous in his day for opera and his last name reminded me of Puccini. I had to do a double take because I was confused at first.
He had an opera that was such a success that fashions of dress, shops, and houses were all named after It!!!
I beat hardly anyone can say that about them. XD
Today I focuse on his flute concerto in D major:
This week I focus on romantic composer Edvard Grieg.
A Norwegian composer.
One of the more interesting fact to me is "In 1868, Franz Liszt, who had not yet met Grieg, wrote a testimonial for him to the Norwegian Ministry of Education, which led to Grieg's obtaining a travel grant. The two men met in Rome in 1870."
You'll find his most well known work to be Peer Gynt.
I'll be focusing on the work "in the hall of king mountain".
Hope you all enjoy :)
I know I'm usually on time with posts on Thursday and what not in the the group. And sorry for two posts and posting on a Wednesday. But, I am going to be gone for the next two weeks!!!
Here is my new all-time favorite track. It is from Solo: A Star Wars Story. I absolutely love how John Powell put his own style into the soundtrack. It definitely comes out in this particular track! He also did such and amazing job writing in the style of John Williams as well.
What do you all think of this track? Also, what did you think of the movie if you've seen it yet? I thought it was one of the best Star Wars movies out there!! It doesn't beat The Last Jedi, though... :D
I decided to post something a little different for modern instrumental today! This is a very fun piece that I got to perform in concert band last winter. I wish I had a video recording of us playing it because at 1:41, the whole clarinet section moved the bells of their instruments right and left for every staccato note. The first chair started it and didn't realize that everyone was copying him until concert day xD
What do you think of it? Have you ever performed this in band?
By the way, I bet you had a hard time believing that this was written by Eric Whitacre! :D
Today I focus on Classical composer František Brixi.
He wrote some 290 church works (of the most varied type) He also composed secular music such as oratorios and incidental music, concertos and symphonies. His organ concertos, which have been recorded several times each, are his best-known pieces today.
His music helped Mozart's to be accepted in Prague while it was shunned in other places of the world.
Today I share his Organ Concerto in D major.
Hope you all enjoy :)
Today I focus on romantic composer Léo Delibes.
Who specialized in opera, ballet, and stage works.
There isn't too much information on wiki about Delibes besides his parents were dad a mailman, and mom a amateur musician, and grandpa was an opera singer.
And more importantly he inspired composers. The composers most notable were Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Drigo and Tchaikovsky.
Today I share one of his most famous work, and one of the most beautiful works I've heard in my life. Flower duet.
