Hello everyone, I need your help...

Postby eyal » Sat Jun 10, 2006 4:12 pm

:oops: :oops: :oops:
I am working on a seminar work for my musicology BA on Tel Aviv University, and I was wondering if any of you can point me towards academic articles which includes musical analysis of SR's works,
I am kind of desparate becuase of the lack of available electronic articles on the subject...

I actually have to write a paper on a music piece which I'll have to analyse and relate to some backround or find correlation to SR other works or other russian composers' works.

I thought of going on a prelude,
Does anyone have any suggetion?
any comment will help...
thanks in advance

If it's up to you to choose a work by S.R. then why choose a prelude. Must it be a short work? I'd choose the 2nd Symphony or the Paganini Variations or the Cello Sonata or something like that if I were you.

YIKES!!! They're not doing a PHD DISERTATION! LOL!! Undergrad level, I'm sure it doesn't have to be so huge. My goodness....a symphony? You could write books on that!

Although I agree about the cello sonata. Could be very interesting. :)

Eyal, If you go with preludes. Why not do one of the entire opus sets?

You just made me laugh. I'm sorry. I didn't know... Well, if you can write about one prelude that's fine. What about the Paganini Variations? :wink:

The prelude in B minor could be a good one, it was Rachmaninoff's favorite. It's one of my favorites preludes and if you can watch the DVD about great pianists of the 20th century, there is Moisevitch talking a little bit about this prelude.

Sorry for the late answer. Yes, I know that DVD and it's marvellous. How did it go? Did you finally work on the B minor?

Welcome!

Welcome to the forum, Girish! After reading your last post, I imagine your country is very beautiful. You will enjoy communicating with people all over the world via this forum.*** Do you play a musical instrument? Since you have joined this forum, I imagine you are an admirer of Rachmaninoff. There is much to learn about this amazing composer, and the forum is a good place to start. Youtube is a good place to hear Rachmaninoff's music -- and even some of his own performances. *** Since you have asked for help from forum members, here are a few suggestions:
1. If you can access Amazon.com, type in Rachmaninoff and order some of his piano works, such as Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini or Concerto No.3. Perhaps you are already familiar with those works. If so, try his Sonata for Cello and Piano, or his Symphonic Dances. The more you listen to this music, the more you will appreciate it.
2. Read Sergei Rachmaninoff, A Lifetime in Music by Bertensson and Leyda. This biography tells the life story of a great man, composer, and pianist. The work is filled with his letters to friends, family members, and fellow musicians -- a real classic.
Opus23#10 :D
