The pieces can be played separately or one after the other as a suite

 

 

 

   "Die sieben Klavierstücke umfassende Serenade bewegt sich im Swing-Stil. Melancholie ..., vielleicht Wunschträume ..., Charme ..., auch Sünde ..., oder Ausgelassenheit ... deuten auf die Vielschichtigkeit der Charaktere, die sich natürlich auch in einem vielseitigen, für den Pianisten dankbaren Spiel ausdrücken. Es wirkt nichts aufgesetzt oder zwanghaft; die für das Swingen erforderliche Leichtigkeit bezüglich der Spieltechnik muss man allerdings mitbringen. Schwierigkeitsgrad mittelschwer."

    Sometimes we are asked how it is possible, that two persons could write a symphonic suite together. Since it’s about “The three musketeers”, my husband took care of the musketeers and I was concerned with the women’s fate. In “Voyage” (third movement) the musketeers keep struggling, Constance dies in the second movement and the queen will win in the fifth movement (she was spanish-blooded, therefore “Spanish Dance”). Consider how she is winning in the end against all intrigues and how she passes by the cardinal wearing the complete jewelry. She doesn’t look at him, she can imagine his facial expression anyway. This is the fifth movement.

Quand le bon Dieu s'ennuye au ciel, il ouvre la fenêtre et regarde les boulevards de Paris. 
Wenn der liebe Gott sich im Himmel langweilt, dann öffnet er das Fenster und betrachtet die Boulevards von Paris. 
When God feels bored in heaven, he opens the window and looks at the boulevards of Paris.

                                                                                       Heinrich Heine

Paris in Blue

SCHOTT ED 21295

20 famous pieces and new compositions for piano

„Paris in Blue“ contains not only many new versions of classics like „Les Champs-Élysées“,„Sous le ciel de Paris“, „I Love Paris“, „Petite Fleur“, „Milord“ and others, but also several new compositions like „Old French Jazz Piano Suite“ the four movements of which – Allemande, Courante, Sarabande and Gigue – bridge the gap between Bach's French Suites and modern jazz. When leafing through this edition, you will meet Charles Baudelaire („Les Fleurs du Mal“), Heinrich Heine, Esmeralda, Inspector Maigret, Erik Satie and other artists who are united by one thing: the love of Paris. "Paris in Blue" is divided into six chapters: 1. The Streets, 2. Freedom, 3. The Flowers, 4. Edith Piaf, 5. Old French Jazz Piano Suite, 6. L‘Amour. Each chapter is preceded by a kind of preface with poems and quotes in three languages (French, English, German).

 

Paris in Blue

20 pièces celèbres et nouvelles compositions pour piano

Ce recueil consacré à Paris fait suite au succès de “Klassik Meets Jazz” (volume 1 : ED 20177 , volume 2 : ED 20537) et “Tango Meets Jazz” (ED 20878). „Paris in Blue“ ne renferme pas simplement de nombreux classiques comme „Les Champs-Élysées“,„Sous le ciel de Paris“, „I Love Paris“, „Petite Fleur“, „Milord“ etc., dans des arrangements inédits, mais aussi de nouvelles œuvres, notamment la „Old French Jazz Piano Suite“ dont les quatre mouvements – Allemande, Courante, Sarabande et Gigue jettent un pont entre les Suites françaises de Bach et le Modern Jazz. En feuilletant la partition, on tombe aussi sur Charles Baudelaire („Les Fleurs du Mal“), Heinrich Heine, Esmeralda, le commissaire Maigret, Erik Satie et d’autres artistes qui ont une chose en commun: l’amour de Paris. "Paris in Blue" est divisé en six chapitres: 1. Les rues, 2. Liberté, 3. Les Fleurs, 4. Edith Piaf, 5. Old French Jazz Piano Suite, 6. L‘Amour. Il y a aussi des poèmes et des citations en trois languages (français, anglais, allemand).

 

Viens-tu du ciel profond ou sors-tu de l'abîme,
O Beauté? Ton regard, infernal et divin,
Verse confusément le bienfait et le crime,
Et l'on peut pour cela te comparer au vin.

Do you come from the deep heaven or rise from the abyss,
Beauty? Your glance, infernal and divine,
Pours out confusedly goodness and crime,
And therefore you can be compared to vine.

                                             Charles Baudelaire ("Les fleurs du mal")

Mais lors voici qu’un oiseau chante,
Dans une pauvre cage en bois,
Mais lors voici qu’un oiseau chante
Sur une ville et tous ses toits,
Et qu’il dit qu’on le voit le monde
Et sur la mer la pluie tomber,
Et des voiles s’en aller rondes,
Sur l’eau si loin qu’on peut aller.
Puis voix dans l’air plus haut montée,
Alors voici que l’oiseau dit
Que tout l’hiver s’en est allé
Et qu’on voit l’herbe qui verdit,
Et sur les chemins la poussière
Déjà, et les bêtes aussi,
Et toits fumant dans la lumière
Que l’on dirait qu’il est midi,
Et puis encore sa voix montée,
Que l’air est d’or et resplendit,
Et puis le bleu du ciel touché
Qu’il est ouvert le paradis.

Max Elskamp
(1862−1931)

Let's Swing, Mr. Diabelli!
SCHOTT ED 20718

Andante op.149 No. 1 - Diabelli Swing - Waltzing Diabelli - Salsa Diabolica - The Sigh - Five Fingers Swing - Rocking Horseshoes - Diabelli do Brazil - It's a Long Way - Swing à la Viennoise -The Publisher's Heartache - Diabelli Goes Jamaica - Alla Argentina - Guinea Pigs in a Salad Bar - Minor Memories

 

Let's swing, Mr. Diabelli

  

    The success story of Diabelli's 'Melodic Exercises' Op. 149 for piano duet has lasted now for almost 200 years. They are beautiful melodies covering a range of only five tones, perfectly suitable for beginners, with refined and brilliantly designed accompanying settings in the Secondo part. To this day, the pieces are very popular among pupils, teachers and music lovers. Diabelli, born in 1781, was not only a respected piano teacher and composer in Vienna, but also a busy music publisher and friend of Ludwig van Beethoven who jokingly called him 'my diabolus' from time to time. Sometimes he sent themes composed by himself to the then famous composers, asking them to write and return to him some variations on these themes. This led to the creation of the famous Diabelli Variations by Beethoven, a demanding piano work which is performed in the concert halls all over the world still today.

   Hopefully, Mr Diabelli would not mind some of his wonderful five-tone melodies being transported into the world of swing, samba and other forms of expression, as has been done in this volume. Apart from some arranged melodies from Opus 149, this volume also contains a few newly arranged pieces, all of them inspired by Diabelli's idea to make music with five fingers as varied as possible. The original arrangement of the keys has been maintained. New inspiration for piano lessons and four-handed piano playing!

 

   "My first thought on looking at this book was that Diabelli's Melodic Exercises op.149 for piano duet have been enjoyed for almost 200 years now, so why should anyone want to mess with them? However, when I played them through with my pupils and the CD, we all had so much fun that, yes, I am convinced! These duets cover a range of only five tones, suitable for beginners (and more advanced pianists), with beautyfully composed accompaniments in the secondo part. Diabelli's original melodies have been transported, with great succes, into a variety of jazzy styles, including salsa, tango and swing. The CD, as with all of Schott's CDs, is of a high standard and includes a duet performance, a duet-plus-backing-track performance and a secondo track for each piece. I have to say that the Diabelli Goes Jamaica backing track with steel pans was probably the most fun I had between Christmas and New Year! These pieces easily stand alone or you could enjoy comparing them with the originals - either way, this is a lovely book and a suitable 21st.century tribute to Diabelli."
