As year-end holidays approach, it is often heard about those Christmas choirs on streets. But I think of the New Year Concert in Vienna, those Waltz, Polka and March from the Strauss family.

Vienna, the city of music and the city of my dream --- in 1913, Rudolf Sieczynski composed the popular song “Wien, du Stadt meiner Träume” (Vienna, city of my dreams). It was the period of defiance and uncertainty, but Sieczynski’s song captures the authentic timeless charming spirit of Vienna, that takes listeners on a sentimental journey to the great city.

This is a clip from 1994 Belgian film "Farinelli". The music to be shared this week is "Lascia ch'io pianga" (from 3:00).

Before, I didn’t recognize Haendel as a great song writer until I saw the film “Farinelli”, a movie about the famous 18th century Italian Castrati Farinelli and his contradictory relationship with his brother and Haendel, which was precisely depicted by this aria. Farinelli’s voice was "reconstructed" by a mixture of counter-tenor and female soprano.

When Tchaikovsky was invited to write a ballet music based on Perrault’s fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” in 1888, it was the beginning of the great collaboration in classical ballet. With choreography by Maricus Petipa, Sleeping Beauty premiered in Mariinsky Theatre in 1890, was Tchaikovsky’s first major success in ballet composition, and set a new standard for what is now called “Classical Ballet”.

The pas de deux in Act III, in particular, remained one of all time favorites in the whole of the ballet repertoire. While we tend to be amazed by great artistry and techniques of the dancers, the music itself has strong magic with beautiful melody, different pace and momentum, different weight and volume that reinforce the performance of the dance.

各大芭蕾大賽和gala表演最愛的pas de deux 中,少不了Le Corsaire和Don Quixote。

很久以前曾在youtube上看過Alla Sizova和Nureyev的Le Corsaire,這片段消失了一陣子,最近又有網友po上,讓我不禁興起了懷舊的念頭。

Le Corsaire Nureyev Sizova
