Music with Marlenka No.2

. . . a journey that can transform anything less than serenity in your day . . .

The first piece, live from the Berlin Philharmonic in 1985 is a salute to Johannes Sebastien Bach performed by the Oscar Peterson Trio, a well known well beloved jazz trio playing worldwide in the 80’s.

Here is another piece by Bach, played by the Jacques Loussier Trio, from Bach’s Well Tempered Clavier collection: Prelude and Fugue No. 5 in D Major, BWV 850. Monsieur Loussier studied classical music from childhood; during his hours of practice it came about that he naturally began to improvise. As a devotee of Bach he began to fuse his innate love for jazz with his love for the music of Bach.

Our third selection continues with Bach , this time played by violinist extraodinaire Dimitry Sitkovetsky: from the Goldberg Variations BWV 988

Sergei Rachmaninoff performs his Elegy Op. 3 No. 1 on piano, a piece played by many great pianists over the years since it was composed in 1892; here listen to the touch of Rachmaninoff himself, its poignant pathos.

Closing with a lovely arrangement of Faure’s original work which included violins, violas, woodwinds and horns, hear now 12 cellists at the Berlin Philharmonic performing his Pavane Op. 50 which was written in 1887.

This podcast comes from Auroville, an international township created in order that one can live away from all national rivalries, social conventions, self-contradictory moralities and contending religions; a place where human beings, freed from all slavery to the past can devote themselves to the discovery and practice of a Divine consciousness . . . Auroville wants to be that place.
