This is not such a bizarre cross-over as one might imagine for in the 18th century the great Irish musician Turlough O’Carolan, a blind harpist, met the Italian musician Geminiani in Dublin, and through him encountered the music of, yes, guess who, Antonio Vivaldi. So here we have a case of substituting Irish instruments for baroque ones, using baroque instruments to accompany Irish themes, by creating dialogues between Celtic and baroque instruments, or by letting all the musicians improvise. One moment we appear to be listening to a ‘straight’ baroque concerto, then all of a sudden the conventional string continuo/ripieno of the baroque ensemble (Le Orfanelle della Pieta) gives way to celtic musicians playing a jig or reel on anything from a Irish bouzouki to a fiddle. The baroque group consists of three each of first and second violins, one viola, two cellos, a bass and harpsichord while the Irish musicians play Irish fiddle, an Irish flute (like a baroque flute), tin and low whistles, Uileann pipes, Irish bouzouki, mandolins, bodhran, bones, and the Celtic harp (played here with metal strings to resemble its harpsichord counterpart in the other group).

Warm, witty and often astonishing, "Pucker Up: The Fine Art Of Whistling" takes a romp through one of the most universal musical art forms. And what better place to start than at the International Whistling Competition, where a host of dazzling maestros - including an investment banker, a turkey hauler, and a Dutch social worker - battle for the whistling world's top prize. As the competition narrows toward a nail-biting "whistle-off," "Pucker Up" highlights whistling's glorious past - from Al Jolson and Audrey Hepburn to Elvis and Monty Python. Featuring performances of pitch-perfect Vivaldi and pulsing Texas swing, this award-winning documentary reminds us that life's simple pleasures can take us to breathless new heights.

Soundtrack of the film "Barry Lindon" by Stanley Kubrick

Soundtrack of the film "Barry Lindon" by Stanley Kubrick
Classical, Irish folk | MP3 @320kbps| 1 CD, covers | 123 MB RS
A Warner Bros Recording 1975



The film's period setting allowed Kubrick to indulge his penchant for classical music, and the film score uses pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach (Concerto for 2 Harpsichords in C minor), Antonio Vivaldi (Cello Concerto in E-Minor, RV 409), Giovanni Paisiello, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Franz Schubert (German Dance No. 1 in C major and Piano Trio in E-Flat, Opus 100. The piece most associated with the film, however, is the main title music: George Frideric Handel's stately Sarabande from the Suite in D minor HWV 437. Originally for solo harpsichord, the versions for the main and end titles are performed very romantically with orchestral strings, harpsichord, and timpani. It is used at various points in the film, in various arrangements, to indicate the implacable working of impersonal fate.
The score also includes Irish folk music performed by The Chieftains. Another very famous piece in the soundtrack is called Women of Ireland, by Seán Ó Riada, played by The Chieftains.

Soundtrack – Barry Lyndon (1975) Warner Bros. Records/BS 2903 – Original US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Various – Music From The Soundtrack Of Barry Lyndon
Vinyl | LP Cover (1:1) | FLAC + cue | 24bit/96kHz & 16bit/44kHz | 800mb & 200mb
Label: Warner Bros. Records/BS 2903 | Released: 1975 | Genre: Soundtrack

While not the entire score, which would be impossible to assemble on a double let along a single disc, the music contained herein from Stanley Kubrick’s stellar motion picture Barry Lyndon — that starred Ryan O’Neal in the only time he ever actually acted, as well as Marisa Berenson — is a mixed bag of the most delightful sort. With 19 selections on the CD — analogue recorded and remastered in pristine digital sound — the music here stands on its own as an eclectic yet moving collection of pieces that reflect the excesses of 17th and early 18th century cultural mores in royal courts, potato fields, and back alley dances. The main title theme is from Handel, his Sarabande, and is followed by Sean Ó Riada’s gloriously beautiful “Women of Ireland,” performed by the Chieftains, who dig in for a few more before being eased out of the mix by the British Grenadiers’ fife and drum corps.

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Congreso are another band I was introduced to on Progarchives, and one I took an almost instant liking to. There are inevitable comparisons to their fellow countrymen Los Jaivas: both bands have been around for forty years or so; both play a progressive style of folk music that is highly influenced by their Chilean ethnic roots; both record music that tends to both celebrate life and to make the occasional social statement; and both employ quite a bit of traditional Chilean instrumentation in their music (charango, marimba, tarka, 12-string guitar, tom toms, rondador) as well as more common modern instruments like electric guitar and bass, drums and synthesizers.
But there are differences as well. Congreso tends to focus on more traditional folk arrangements, particularly on their early albums, and many of their songs are either adopted from or inspired by these older tunes. Los Jaivas on the other hand quickly moved toward a heavier use of modern instrumentation and more symphonic prog arrangements in their music. Both styles are highly appealing to prog and folk fans, but the differences give us something to celebrate in each of their sounds.

...While his works are often extraordinarily difficult, their virtuosity rises out of a desire to express rather than amaze; here a lightening quick leap of the bow to portray the fury of a princess scorned; there a fiendishly painful trill to mimic diabolical laughter. It is this intense pictorial inward gaze which seems at least as strong as his desire to create ‘brave sport' that sets him somewhat apart from his colleagues...
