Since these are not DVDs of CDs, Ithought they would fit here. There is no youtube tag for emebedding so just using link.

Please list the work and conductor, though.

Saraste, Andante festivo

It's kind of mesmerizing to look at the baton! I was on my phone to view it, with good headphones.

Of course the Lahti SO have this music in their blood, but on reflection I prefer the somewhat broader approach from maestro Kurkikohtaus and West-Bohemian SO Marienbad. This combined with a remarkable intensity from the relatively small String section.

As we all know Sibelius came out of retirement to conduct his Andante Festivo in a broadcast to the Newyork World Fair on Newyears day, 1939. Martti Pajanne [viola player in the Helsinki PO] who interviewed the musicians, reported that the orchestra played in rehearsal with a thicker, more singing sound than usual. The composers daughter Katarina Ilves was likewise impressed. 'After the first bars at the rehearsal Father broke off and said 'much more poetic, much more poetic'. It was as if he had cast a stone in a pool and the ripples were spreading. It was very impressive. It just showed the personal magnetism he must have had because he managed to make even the 'blind' see when he was abroad. Maybe its not just a conductors art, but 'suggestion'.

The distinguished Horn player Holger Fransman was also present 'Its scored for String orchestra, so the Wind and Brass sections had nothing to do. We nevertheless hung around since Sibelius himself was conducting. His hands were shaking, but it didn't really matter. He grasped the baton like this with both hands, raised it above his head and only then let one hand go. So this was a fine start. The maestro wasn't really a conductor, but all the beats were exactly according to the rules'.

In Sibelius's performance, despite the rather 'raw' recording the Strings sing. He keeps the basic tempo and makes natural rubatos and Sib deviates from the score markings every now and again. The tempo is notably slow, nearly six minutes [ Sibelius marked five minutes in the score] Conductors have varied enormously. Jorma Panula taking just 3'-38''--kp

A couple of months back my Real Player used to let me capture videos as youtubes. Not anymore. So I can't capture the Kurkikohtaus recording.

Thanks. I'll look for yours, and also the one Ehrling I watched. I already have the violin concerto.

Only a 5 minute bit, not worth a download, but it's cool to see the choir in Kullervo

Here is that legendary 1939 performance of Sibelius conducting his Andante Festivo beamed to the New York World Fair.--kp

7th, 5th and 1st

There are some oddities in each. Or perhaps they are arrangements? I never heard any of them in this manner, it is as if you were sitting next to the kettle drums.

There was discussion of the Moscow orchestra. Samples can be found in youtube. Not worth it though.

St. Petersburg does better, though the trombone is a bit loud:

The young Norwegian trumpet virtuoso Tine Thing Helseth is on BBC radio 3 on 3rd April. She will be accompanied by Kathryn Stott in arrangements for trumpet of pieces by Enesco, Ravel and Weill. Also she will perform some of Sibelius's songs opus 37. I believe a recording is out on EMI. You can hear Miss Helseth in the finale of Haydn's trumpet concerto above--kp

Songs arranged for trumpet and piano? Good grief... Each to his/her own, I suppose. I took a quick look at the YouTube video. Quite an idealized image of what recording sessions are like, indeed.

Yes, unusual arrangements, but I would reserve my verdict until hopefully I hear her recording. I started lessons on the trumpet back in my teens and still have a cornet which is kept mostly in its case! Helseth's arrangement might just work. She clearly admires Sibelius. Actually I'm proud to play Sibelius on my humble harmonica [mouth organ] It gives me a great deal of pleasure - Smile kp

If you use the Firefox browser, you can install free add-ons in the browser, such as

. Then, when you visit a Youtube video page, there will be this little extra button beneath the video, which you can click and select the video to download. Pretty useful and effective.


Oh, and I'd like to share this video with Sibelius's Allegretto for violin/piano, JS22 that I made a few days ago. Hope you like it Smile
