Re: Britta Bystrom - Viola Concerto.

No, Mr. Clive, it's not you. After your message I tried to listen to the file on Mediafire. Result: beautiful silence.
I deleted the mp3 file and am now uploading the .wav file in stead.

55% is uploaded so far, so in a about 8 minutes the file will be downloadable from Mediafire. (In original post).

Regarding Bystrom, I have never been able embrace much of her music and I have listened to much
of it on Swedish radio, who seem to be pushing her product to the neglect of more important others. In my feeble brain, there
is just something about it, it sounds almost "manufactured". But I can see where some might like it..
Am I missing something here? Any feedback would be welcome..

To be honest, I listened to Bystrom's Violakonsert only two times. It intrigued me how she managed to create a concerto after a pretty strange start of the work. Now listening to it, I must say I can see what Jolly Roger feels about being 'manufactured'. So far it didn't irritate me. Her other works gave me mixed feelings so far.

I wonder what you think about another Swedish lady composer, who I discovered recently: Andrea Tapponi
She was born in 1981.

On her website are a few works you can download, and be able to listen to parts of other works

www.andreatarrodi.com

Her work for orchestra 'Liguria' impressed me. Another interesting work for me is 'Empireo'

Not to be patronizing, Sweden and Scandinavia have some fine woman composers, thanks for the tip om Tapponi, I'll check it out

Not to be patronizing, but her name is spelled Tarrodi as the link shows. Wink

Well it is not. It is just a necessary correction of my stupid mistake: of course it is Tarrodi

This composer was totally unknown to me. I no I shood haf done spelt it rite, especially since I assume Andrea is femail and we all needs to moore "gender sensitive" deese dayz. I may have been thinkin Taboolie.
But the link worked fine, I sampled Tarrodi's music and Andrea Tarrodi is a name to remember.
She is indeed a talent, esp in orchestration..I heard echoes of John Adams in Liguria, but
Tarrodi's melodies are much less abstract. I hope Swedish radio provides much more of Andrea Tarrodi's music

Finally listened to Pergament's "Jewish Poem".  Wow, - what an inspired and affecting piece, with an especially uplifting and beneficient concluding movement, though I've no idea what the text is, or is even about.  Surprised no one seems to have commented on this superlative work.  An exceptional performance also, with wonderful soloists (notably the soprano).  Attention never flagged or even wavered over 75', and again, the final 10 or 12 minutes are truly sublime. Sincere thanks to Sicmu/Alex for providing it.

Mistake - it's the Italian equivalent of Andrew. I remember a meeting where a speaker referred to an Italian friend of mine called Andrea as "she", whereupon he stood up (he was in the audience), jabbed his finger at his chin, and called out, "I have a beard!".

If it was confusing others, I would have changed my first name to remove all doubts..but I am not famous..
It is always unwise to add a pinch of salt to an already tasty dish, but let me try it all the same.
Italians have a point here. After all, Andrew, Andrea, André, Andris and all this kind of names probably come from "andros", ancient Greek word for man (as opposed to woman, while "anthropos" is the human being in general).
However, the safest is to remember that there are some national variants here. So, as a rule:
Andrea from Italy is a man,
Andrea from Hungary is a woman,
Andreea from Romania is a woamn (mind the double "e"),
André from France is a man, and Andrée a woman,
Elfrida Andree from Sweden was a woman, but then, Andree was her surname  Grin

As a German, let me also add the variants used here: in Germany, Andrea is a woman, and the corresponding male name is Andreas.
