CLASSICAL OPUS no.78

Maurice Ravel: “Piano Concerto in G major”

モーリス・ラヴェル: 「ピアノ協奏曲/ Gメジャー」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 33 minutes

The complex interplay of surprisingly plebeian, flabby woodwinds holds the concerto together in drowsily pictorial passages.  However, once you have pierced through this deftly constructed moment of synesthesia, you will find that flutes and violin remain in a pole position to converse with the piano, upending the structural constraints of classical formalism.   The great Martha Argerich steers us through the journey.

A REFLECTION

I have built a house in the middle of the Ocean

Its windows are the rivers flowing from my eyes

Octopi are crawling all over where the walls

Hear their triple hearts beat and their beaks peck against the windowpanes

 

House of dampness

House of burning

Season’s fastness

Season singing
