Sergei Rachmanioff, born April 1, 1873 and died March 28, 1943 was a Russian composer, pianist , and conductor. He was one of the finest pianists of his day and, as a composer, the last great representative of Russian late Romanticism in classical music. Early influences of Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and other Russian composers gave way to a thoroughly personal idiom which included a pronounced lyricism, expressive breadth, structural ingenuity and a tonal palette of rich, distinctive orchestra colors.
Understandably, the piano figures prominently in Rachmanioff's compositional output, either as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble. He made it a point, however, to use his own skills as a performer to explore fully the expressive possibilities of the instrument.A Poem by Harry Griswold
We know Gabriel's supposed
to blow someday, like Dizzy Gillespie.
Music to take our minds off things
would be fine - if it weren't so final -
if it didn't set off saints marching in.
Morricone has Gabriel blowing
an oboe. Imagine Gabe charming snakes.
It's as odd as Louie tooting
a bassoon. But an oboe's made from
African Blackwood, far more elegant
than brass stamped out, let's say,
in Elkhart, Indiana. And oboe reeds
come from cane raised in France -
I know this because I used to scrape
my own - now I get them shipped down
from up above. Minnesota I mean.
Whatever horn Gabe chooses, I wonder
which song he'll play - and if he'll give
the composer royalties that are due.
Under the sudden circumstances
he could try to skip out without paying.
And don't you wonder if this'll be
Gabe's only gig, if he'll ever blow
that horn again ? What a waste
it would be. Why would.
eternal time strat with music
that gets tossed in a drawer ?www.sandiegocet.net
