Sounds of the sea and sun, Volume 2

Compositions by Isaac Albeniz

Granada is a musical portrait of the famous city at the foot of the Sierra Nevada. I hear the lively-relaxed hustle of the early-morning city in the first part, accompanied by the incessant chirping of cicadas. Then it is night, and the mysterious Moorish past is alive again, until at last the sun awakens the everyday southern European life anew. Written by Isaac Albeniz for piano, this composition, like most of his others, is played today particularly in the transcriptions for classical guitar.

Asturias takes us into the rainy province of Asturias in northern Spain. The fine tremolo structures paint the picture of a gentle starting rain which then turns into thunderstorms. But then the clouds which gathered from the Atlantic move on and give a view of the majestic mountain landscape of Spain, whose sparseness can let our thoughts wander into the vastness.. Isaac Albeniz here imitates the style of flamenco guitar playing on the piano.

Mallorca is an island full of surprises, just like this compostion by Albeniz. A deeply romantic melody experiences abrupt changes, as if amid a lovely landscape suddenly behind a bend a breathtaking sight emerges. In the second part we hear a cheerful, carefree southern melody accompanied by a guitar. This musical portrait by Albeniz was also written originally for piano, but it suits our chromatic harp perfectly.

Eric Satie, Three Gnossiennes

Eric Satie, Three Gnossiennes

Music full of peace, like a silent stretching sea. Satie created music, which in the greatest simplicity carries an infinite depth in itself. In the adaption for the Chromatic Harp from the original piano scores only some of the deep bass notes have been transposed up one octave. The pieces are easy to play because of the frequently recurring, simple harmonies and the quiet pace.

Eric Satie, Three Gymnopèdies

Eric Satie, Three Gymnopèdies

Harmonically more sophisticated and therefore more difficult to play than the Gnossiennes. The Gymnopédies were ritual dances in ancient Crete. They spring from Satie's interest in ancient mysticism.

„Es gibt ein Geheimnis um die Musik” sagte der alte Harfner „dem ich näher kommen möchte. Auf der Suche nach diesem Geheimnis schufen die Musiker immer kompliziertere Kompositionen — und doch ist die Musik, die die Menschen im Innersten bewegt, oft die einfachste. Aber nicht jede simple Melodie berührt deshalb die Menschen. Vielleicht ist dieses Geheimnis zu einfach, um es in Bücher zu schreiben oder in Worte zu fassen, ja, die Gelehrten würden am Ende sogar die Köpfe darüber schütteln, wenn sie's wüßten. Aber die Musiker stoßen manchmal zufällig darauf: einmal, zweimal in ihrem Leben finden manche von ihnen eine Melodie, die unsterblich wird, die den Menschen vertraut wird wie ihre eigene Hand und die ihnen dennoch einen Schauer den Rücken herunterlaufen läßt, wenn sie sie hören. Dann geschieht dieses Geheimnis der Musik.”
