Rondo à la Purcell


Uploaded on Feb 27, 2015

I recorded this piece without preparation, so I took some pedal notes one octave lower. I would not do that at a concert. But I like the recording, that's why I leave it for the moment.

JayW arranged it for strings:

I absolutely love this piece... the way you go to the dominant taking that surprising turn in measure 5!
I've recently come back to Musescore and I found your profile, so I started looking for this piece through all your pieces and I finally found it. I absolutely adore this. I'll be listening a lot to this... Again. The Purcell imitation here is very well crafted. Thank you for this!
Thank you for your kind comment. I always like to play this piece.
This is one of the best pieces on Musescore! I truly LOVE it, Hans. I love the mixing of the voices here, you are awesome! :D The jazzy chords and the lovely and dramatic melody are all of them simply perfect!
Thank you so much. And yes, I'm proud at it.
I'd like to hear your earlier versions and eh -what u call exaggerated or distasteful . Haha . I love what Brahms did with Handel and also his Hadyn St. Antoni variations . I'd say each variation in your purcell could have more and more chromaticism and newer or jazzier harmonies and the rhythms could shrink , elongate and become samba dance . Why not its our music not Purcells .His music is still his . I'm reading terry Teachout 's bio on Louis Armstrong right now and am learning how to read neumes and 10th century church music . Hope to set some latin texts soon . Choral music not sure about voices yet though I play piano for a church choir . My dream is to have all da musics and styles interchanging and playing at the same time . Just me ! hahaha.
Sure, It's all possible. Let's enjoy this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ax-7kYRA88Q&list=RDax-7kYRA88Q
I listened several times and kept wondering how much I would love to hear it ona harpsichord with a celesta and marimba and cymbals and drum set in da background . You planted a seed in me. I rarely listen to jazz but now I'm hungering for it .
I liked it a lot. SO much so that I'd like to listen to it again!
I'm very glad you extended it. It is very nice, in my opinion some of your best works.
Thank you. I wanted to extend it, because of the famous rondeau of Purcell. But it took some time. The first sketches were too exaggerated, there is a danger with this kind of pastiches to overdo things.
Thank you, and thanks for the nice arrangement!
brilliant development of a brilliant idea!
