Strauss-Whittle, Selections from Ariadne auf Naxos

Regular price €9,00 €0,00

 Richard Strauss,  Selections from Ariadne auf Naxos.

Arranged for guitar by Rod Whittle.
Overture; 'A golden time …'
Here the Mozart influence, better, inspiration, is wonderfully evident. A gentle waltz time (only the first section of the overture is transcribed) carries the colourful harmonies, strong melodic threads and connecting flourishes that stamp both pieces.
Chorus and Aria
This selection from the finale has features well worth trying to translate. The device of having a strong chorus, in the style of a Bach chorale.
Excerpt from the final part …
This shows a Mozart like facility for the integration of recitative and harmonic tension. As fits with the dramatic situation and characters (here Ariadne and Bacchus) the line of the music is constantly stretched.
