Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 in C major, Op. 60 "Leningrad", was written in 1939–40. Initially dedicated to the life and deeds of Vladimir Lenin, Shostakovich decided instead to dedicate the symphony to the city of Leningrad on its completion in December 1941. The work remains one of Shostakovich's best-known compositions.

The piece soon became very popular in both the Soviet Union and the West as a symbol of resistance to Nazi totalitarianism and militarism. It is still regarded as the major musical testament of the estimated 25 million Soviet citizens who lost their lives in World War II. The symphony is played frequently at the Leningrad Cemetery, where half a million victims of the 900-day Siege of Leningrad are buried. As a condemnation of the German invasion of the Soviet Union, the work is particularly representative of the political responsibilities that Shostakovich felt he had for the state, regardless of the conflicts and criticisms he faced throughout his career with Soviet censors and Joseph Stalin.

This lost recording was submitted to Classical Music Discoveries by a previous producer of Melodiya in 2014. This performance by the Leningrad Radio Orchestra was meant to serve as the national premier of this work. However the Leningrad Radio Orchestra had barely survived the war and conductor Karl Eliasberg had conducted the orchestra a little bit to the disliking of the Soviet government. So this recording was scrapped in favor of a less severe recording completed a month later. Thus this recording, has never been heard outside of the Leningrad Radio Orchestra and the staff at Melodiya.

This original analog recording, newly digitized by Classical Music Discoveries, is now available from our online store for only $1.99 as a digital download. To order this unique never-before-heard recording, just visit our store at www.ClassicalRecordings.co

Ezra Donner was only three years old when his father introduced him to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony for the first time, on a recording. Although already familiar with the work's iconic Ode to Joy theme, Ezra found hearing the music in its original context to be a new experience. He was fascinated by how much more there was to the piece than he had previously known, including the famousTurkish march variation.  This early occurrence made a lasting impression on Ezra that would shape his life and career.

This month we explore Ezra’s superb compositional skills for the full orchestra as we will hear Mountain Suite.

To learn more about Ezra Donner, please visit his website at www.ezradonner.com or if your player supports hyperlinks, just click on the title of each piece as it is being played.

Be sure to listen to Ken’s interview with Ezra on show 1167 as they talk about his life and music.

Now we are proud to present for our listeners, Mountain Suite by Ezra Donner.

Welcome to the 5th edition of Classical Essentials.  This show is made possible thanks to a generous donation from Dennis Loeffel.

Orchestrating for an entire symphony orchestra is no simple task.  There are very few great orchestrator’s  throughout the history of classical music.   Yes, there are many great composers, but being a great composer doesn’t make you a great orchestrator.

Orchestration is giving your music a voice in the orchestra.  Knowing not only what range each instrument can play, what tone the instrument can give you, but also knowing what combinations of instruments can give you  the sound you wish.  Also you must know how the voices in each section work together.

Mozart’s Serenade for 13 Wind Instruments in B-flat Major, K. 361 is a prime example of Mozart’s mastery of the orchestra’s wind section.  This work is often known as “Gran Partita” which is actually a misspelling not written in Mozart’s own hand.

In this performance, by the wind section of the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice, uses the original orchestrations by Mozart: 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassett horns, 4 horns and a double bass.

You can download this spectacular performance for free at CMDEssentials.com.  Again, we wish to thank Dennis Loeffel for making this extraordinary performance free to the world.

Oberto, Conte di San Bonifacio is an opera in two acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Temistocle Solera, based on an existing libretto by Antonio Piazza probably called Rocester.

It was Verdi's first opera, written over a period of four years and was first performed at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, on 17 November 1839. The La Scala production enjoyed "a fair success" and the theatre's impresario, Bartolomeo Merelli, commissioned two further operas from the young composer.

This rarely performed opera, by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice, can now be purchased at our online music store for only $1.99.  Visit www.ClassicalRecordings.co, or if your browser supports hyperlinks, just click on the name of the chapter as the opera is being played.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
