Some great deep tone in Travis Gore’s performance of Henze’s S. Biagio 9 agosto ore 12.07
Live recording from a recital by Barbé in March of 2011 in La Flèche, France. I really like the lyricism in this performance.
Rx: Gain greater connection to Henze’s “S. Biagio 9 Agosto Ore 1207”
Learning more about the music we play is a great way to develop a deeper connection to the music itself and leads, hopefully, to a better performance.
Here is an undergraduate essay on Henze’s “S. Biagio 9 Agosto Ore 1207” by Milo Fultz. In addition to the musical structures of the music, Fultz includes a brief biography of the composer and some interesting speculation on the meaning of the title.
This is a great, brief read on this work and I hope to see more of this sort of thing from Mr. Fultz and others.
A great piece with all sorts of interesting things going on, showing different moods and tone colors.
Performed by Lisa Dowling at the Manhattan School of Music. I’ll definitely be posting more of her performances in the weeks ahead–she does quite a lot of interesting stuff.
