1  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / New Website with biographic Data, Lists of Works and Recordings of "Robert Kahn" on: June 13, 2018, 03:39:05 pm
I recently finished a Website to provide all available Data about Life Works and Recordings of Robert Kahn (1865-1951).

Robert Kahn composed mainly Songs, Vocal music, Chambermusic and Pianomusic. He could be regarded as one of the very few students of Johannes Brahms and as far as I know he was the only one whom Brahms invited himself to study  personally with  Brahms in Vienna. He was later Professor at the Berlin Musikhochschule and succesful Chambermusician performing with many prominent Musicians from Joseph Joachim up to Adolf Busch.

After a long and succesful musical Life in Berlin he was forced by the Nazis to leave germany 1939 with more than 70 Years and moved to Biddenden in Kent not far away from Laurence_Alma-Tadema who he already knew from Berlin.

In his last Years in Germany and in his British exil he composed from 1935-1949 his "Diary in Music" sometimes also called "Leaves from the Tree of Life" with altogether nearly 1200 Pianopieces rooted meanwhile not stuck in the late romantic classical tradition of Brahms but with some intelligent curiosity experimenting for himself how this tradition could be reasonable developed to become his own concept of a music for the 20th century.

Today namely his Chambermusic seem to be rediscovered more and more.

2  About music in general / Members' own performances and productions / W.A.Mozart's "La ci darem la mano" and (nearly) all what has followed ;-) on: February 02, 2018, 04:47:40 pm
This catchy earworm-duet has inspired often most virtuos composers in the following 100 years to some of their most beautiful and inspired and often most brilliant compositions. Being kind of addicted to that meloidies I couldn't stop searching for and recording all I was able to find based on "La ci darem la mano" here you can listen my results.

Together with all recorded variants more than 3 hours of music composed by Alexander Klengel, Franz Danzi, Frederic Chopin, Friedrich Kalkbrenner, Sigismund Thalberg, Franz Liszt, Franceso Calegari, Bartolomeo Campagnoli, Nicholas Bochsa, August Eberhard Müller many of them as it seems even recorded for the very first time by myself.

So if you like me can't stop listening to this Mozart-Duett..... here you can find all you need  Wink
3  About music in general / Members' own performances and productions / To say hello I would like to introduce me and my project on: January 23, 2018, 08:17:47 pm
OK since it would take very much time and Forumdiscussion to present here all over 3300 mp3 of classical (often unsung or never recorded before= 1500) music I produced and present online.

I try to be short in just sum it all up as my project. If you believe those amount of recordings would be in any way unusual high, keep in mind that the amount is already the result of more than 10 years work and rises for the reason I enjoyed to do complete recordings (f.i. Bach Clavieruebungen, Haydn Piano-Sonatas, A.A.Klengel 120 Canons and Fugues,  Alban Bergs nonscenic works and I often tend to do recordings twice in the sound of period instruments and modern grand Pianos.)

For friends of symphonic music some for the first time recorded Works of Draeseke (Frithjof, et al.), Nicodé (Das Meer, Gloria!) might be interesting.

And to be clear as unmistakable my project is called "": all recordings are produced with my Digital Audio-Workstation and all available Software which apears to be useful for my project.  They do not build upon any existing recordings of any interpretation, but use professional libraries of single notes of every possible soundcharacter of all needed traditional instruments ("Samplelibraries") to produce my own completly new individual interpretations of the compositions I decided to realise.

You must not listen to anything if this fact has anything you are not able to accept.

But if you just like music, open your mind and ears and you might perhaps find, that I really always tried hard to do my best to make audible in the for me most possible pleasant way what I like to hear myself. 

Take this point as my startingpoint to share keep some my future projects with you. If you like to discuss any of my already existing projects this might be a good place. Otherwise this is at least the hint to the status quo of my current projects.
