Thank you for posting that.

@AndrewH -

Thanks, Andrew! 

Enjoyed this multi-media performance, too! 

Does the Promenade count as a separate movement?

How many more do we have left to look forward to?

The Promenade is not traditionally considered a separate movement, but the first (and longest) Promenade in the piece got a separate video. The other Promenades are all attached to the movements that follow them.

This is the 6th of 11 videos. The remaining ones are:

7. Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle

8. The Market at Limoges

9. Catacombs

10. Baba-Yaga

11. The Great Gate of Kiev

 

Of these, I'll be in 8, 9, and 11. I've already recorded "The Market at Limoges." I'm recording "Catacombs" this week and "The Great Gate of Kiev" later in the month.

Part 7 is out! Here's Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle.

 

I'm not in this one, but I'll appear in the next two movements, both of which I've already recorded.

@AndrewH -

Just LOVE it! 

I'm continuously surprised with these performances - the music and the Art are always unexpected (just what I need). 

Really appreciate that you shared this!

Being new to all of this, I just recently found out about virtual performances and this one is absolutely brilliant. Really great work Andrew!

Just out: Part 8, The Market at Limoges. There's paint everywhere, even on the musicians!

 

I'm in this one, and if you look closely, Persia makes a cameo too! This movement was a real challenge: lots of going back and forth between pizz and arco in very little time, and even some left hand pizz.

Better than Coffee or a wake up call in the Morning! 

I LOVED IT! 

Btw, saw Persia, too - hope everyone makes sure to

use the HD setting while viewing! 

I know it wasn't, but you made it look easy, Andrew -

Great Project!

Thanks, everyone. :)

Funny thing is, I didn't realize Persia was there when I was recording! She wasn't there when I played my first take, and was when I played the take that I submitted. I was standing where I was to avoid being backlit.

BTW, the keyboard player was playing the celesta part. It's really rare for someone to have a celesta at home, so an electronic keyboard fills in for it. (Many community orchestras have to do that too.)

Bob, since you mentioned it before, I hope you caught the Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks just before the page break. It's easy to miss because of where it is in the thread.

I'm getting ready to record "The Great Gate of Kiev" this weekend, and then I get to sit back and wait for the rest of the videos to come out.

@AndrewH, Yes I did watch the little chicks in their shells!

It's really great now-a-days that we have technology that can simulate obscure instruments like the celesta.

I'm excited to see how your orchestra are going to handle the tubular bells/chimes at the end of Gates. These presentations of Pictures is one of the most entertaining I've seen.

Next picture: Catacombs (With the Dead in a Dead Language).

The string parts are pretty sparse in this movement, but I'm floating around upper left when playing.

Also, look for the visual pun!

@AndrewH -

That was such an ethereal experience! 

I really have become addicted to these!  

Looking forward to the next. 

THANK YOU! 

 

Btw, I forgot to ask you -

what's your next project,

now that you've finished recording these?

@ELCBK - the next project after Pictures at an Exhibition will be Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. (The solo part is divided between a bunch of pianists, and the orchestra parts are split into a few segments with people rotating in and out.) I'm recording for that project this week.

Rhapsody in Blue will be the last Socially Distant Orchestra video for now, as most of the people involved expect to return to in-person performing by this fall. After that, it's likely to be limited to a project or two each summer during the orchestra off-season.

@AndrewH Fantastic.... I like the tempo chosen for this piece.

It took me a few minutes to understand the lady with the cat in the lower right.
