The "Bridal Chorus" from the opera Lohengrin (1848), by German composer Richard Wagner (1813 - 1883), is the standard march played for the bride's entrance at most formal weddings in the United States and at many weddings throughout the Western world. In English-speaking countries it is generally known as "Here Comes the Bride" or "Wedding March". Its usual placement at the beginning of a wedding ceremony is not entirely in accordance with its placement in the opera. In the opera, the chorus is sung after the ceremony by the women of the wedding party, as they accompany the heroine Elsa to the bridal chamber. In addition, the marriage between Elsa and Lohengrin is an almost immediate failure.
In any Hispanic country, a cup of hot chocolate, or 'chocolate' (cho-co-la-te) is a sweet, spicy, frothy and iridescent treat that must be experienced. I hope that this piece captures at least a small amount of that sensuality. Salud!
Years ago I arranged this piece for flute, guitar and viola; since then I have made a number of versions culminating in this arrangement of the entire piece for flute, oboe and guitar - I can finally cross it off my list! Schubert was a melodic genius and the flute and oboe really get to sing; the guitar part provides the gentle ambiance upon which the melodies 'float'. Sing pretty!
This is a trio realization of several Baroque guitar pieces by the 17th century Spaniard Gaspar Sanz. I have avoided the temptation to "plump them up" so that the simple charm of Sanz' music is maintained. The dynamics and colour changes are editorial; the ornaments are from Sanz' manuscript.
This is a slight re-arrangement of a score that I played in college. I have not been able to source an original score yet so all I can tell you about it is that it is very pleasant and soothing to play! (For even more fun, the flute and oboe players could switch parts on the repeats.)
This famous minuet by Boccherini (originally for string quintet) was wildly popular in his time and was arranged for many different ensembles and no less than 30 times for piano alone! Originally Op. 11, the first edition was mistakenly published as Op. 13 and that designation remains to this day.
Gabriel Fauré (1845 - 1924) was a French composer, organist, pianist and teacher. He was one of the foremost French composers of his generation, and his musical style influenced many 20th century composers.
Here is a rather dreamy arrangement of this old song. Enjoy!
Here is a "simple" arrangement of the Shaker hymn "Simple Gifts" by Joseph Brackett. Enjoy!
Scott Joplin (1868 – 1917) was an American composer and pianist. Joplin achieved fame for his ragtime compositions, and was later dubbed "The King of Ragtime". During his brief career, Joplin wrote 44 original ragtime pieces, one ragtime ballet, and two operas. One of his first pieces, the Maple Leaf Rag, became ragtime's first and most influential hit, and has been recognized as the archetypal rag.
"Three Entertainments" are lighthearted, descriptive vignettes. "Fiesta" is of a Latin flavour - lots of sunshine and good humour.
"Three Entertainments" are lighthearted, descriptive vignettes. "Summer Rain" expresses feelings born while watching the rain from the front porch.
"Top Hat" is the second of "Three Entertainments", light-hearted, descriptive vignettes originally for flute and guitar. It was written to evoke tap dancing and I had in mind two old gentlemen who are "trading moves", perhaps in memory of earlier performances together. If it feels right to add a trill or a glissando, please do so.
These are three short colour pieces based on some piano music that I wrote for my friend's daughter; they were first realized as 'Two sketches for Two Guitars" and have now been significantly extended and expanded for this setting. They are depictions of her and her two siblings. “Waltz” is a deep and dreamy 12 year old girl; “The Runner” is a 10 year old soccer - playing boy; “Beguine” was a sentimental portrait of a teenage girl that somehow became a Latin dance.
