Mozart | Piano Concerto No. 25 in C, K. 503 [complete]

Paver la route! 
Mozart Concerto pour piano n ° 25

Voici une petite question piège. voyez si vous connaissez la réponse? Quelle composition majeure de Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart a dû attendre 147 ans après sa mort pour être à nouveau interprétée? La réponse est vraiment incroyable car il s’agit d’une œuvre de son genre le plus populaire composée au cours de ses dernières années à Vienne. Si vous aviez dit le Concerto pour piano n ° 25 en do majeur, K. 503, vous auriez eu raison. La question que nous devrions nous poser est alors pourquoi aucun pianiste ou chef n’a touché ce concerto pendant un siècle et demi? Nous savons que Mozart a exécuté l’œuvre le 5 décembre 1786 à Vienne, un jour après avoir terminé la composition. Dès le lendemain, Mozart se rendit à Prague avec une nouvelle symphonie – le numéro 38 en ré majeur K. 504, à juste titre surnommé «Prague» – et dirigea une représentation de Figaro. Il n’existe aucune trace de Mozart exécutant son nouveau concerto pour piano à Prague, mais il le fait à nouveau le 7 avril 1787 à Vienne et le 12 mai 1787 à Leipzig. La toute prochaine exécution de ce travail aura lieu en 1934 !!! À cette occasion, Artur Schnabel a joué le rôle solo et George Szell a dirigé le Philharmonique de Vienne. Il fallut encore une dizaine d’années avant que l’œuvre reprenne enfin la place qui lui revient de droit dans le répertoire. Alors qu’est-ce qui s’est mal passé?

Kris Kristofferson | Me and Bobby McGee | Highwaymen live at Nassau Coliseum, 1990

Janis Joplin covered the song for inclusion on her Pearl album only a few days before her death in October 1970. Kris had sung the song for Joplin, and singer Bob Neuwirth taught it to her. Kris, however, did not know she had covered it until after her death (the first time he heard it was the day after she died). Joplin’s version topped the charts to become her only number one single and only the second posthumous number one single in rock & roll history (the first was “(Sittin’ on) the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding). In 2004, the Janis Joplin version of this song was ranked No. 148 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Mother | John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band

Mother, you had me
But I never had you
I wanted you
But you didn’t want me
So 
I got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye

Father, you left me
But I never left you
I needed you
But you didn’t need me
So
I just got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye

Children, don’t do
What I have done
I couldn’t walk
And I tried to run
So
I got to tell you
Goodbye
Goodbye

Mama don’t go
Daddy come home
Mama don’t go
Daddy come home
Mama don’t go
Daddy come home
Mama don’t go
Daddy come home

David Bowie | Heroes

I, I will be king

And you, you will be queen

Though nothing, will drive them away

We can beat them, just for one day

We can be heroes, just for one day

 

And you, you can be mean

And I, I’ll drink all the time

‘Cause we’re lovers, and that is a fact

Yes we’re lovers, and that is that

 

Though nothing, will keep us together

We could steal time, just for one day

We can be heroes, forever and ever

What d’you say?

 

I, I wish you could swim

Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim

 

Though nothing, nothing will keep us together

We can beat them, forever and ever

Oh we can be heroes, just for one day

 

I, I will be king

And you, you will be queen

Though nothing, will drive them away

We can be heroes, just for one day

We can be us, just for one day

 

I, I can remember (I remember)

Standing, by the wall (by the wall)

And the guns, shot above our heads (over our heads)

And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)

 

And the shame, was on the other side

Oh we can beat them, forever and ever

Then we could be heroes, just for one day

We can be heroes

We can be heroes

We can be heroes, just for one day

We can be heroes

 

We’re nothing, and nothing will help us

Maybe we’re lying, then you better not stay

But we could be safer, just for one day

Oh-oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-oh-ohh, just for one day

Perigiali [George Seferis] | Mikis Theodorakis | “On the seashore” | Singer: Maria Farantouri

“On the seashore” is a song by Mikis Theodorakis made on a poem by the great Greek poet George Seferis. It is a poem about inevitable changes in our lives where we have to let go of things we love and cherish and move on. The song was written in 1962 . It is a song that carries many of the distinct colours, phrases and sesnsations that make up what is Greece and I tried to couple those with photos that carry these feelings as well. Here it is performed by Maria Farantouri.

Denial In a hidden seashore white as a dove we found ourselves in midday, thirsty, but the water undrinkable. On the golden sand we wrote her name, how beautifully the breeze came and erased the writing. We started our life with all our heart, all our breath, all our passion — a mistake! and we changed our life. George Seferis was the pen name of Georgios Seferiadis (1900 — 1971). He was one of the most important Greek poets of the 20th century, and a Nobel laureate. He was also a career diplomat in the Greek Foreign Service, culminating in his appointment as Ambassador to the UK, a post which he held from 1957 to 1962. Mikis Theodorakis , born July 29, 1925, is one of the most renowned Greek songwriters and composers. Internationally, he is probably best known for his songs and for his scores for the films Zorba the Greek), and Serpico. Politically, he identified with the left until the late 1980s and has consistently opposed oppressive regimes and was the key voice against the Greek Junta 1967-1974, which imprisoned him. Maria Farantouri ,born in 28 November 1947, is a Greek singer and also a political and cultural activist. She has collaborated with prominent Greek composers such as Mikis Theodorakis
