  • Night on Bald Mountain

    Any fans of this song? I found this CSO rendition to be the impressively quick. :boom:

    One of my fav's. Played it in HS with an honors group. I definitely sent chills up my spine. We also played Russian Easter Overture (Rimsky-Korsakov) that concert that is another great piece.

    Thanks.

    That's a little faster than we played it......:smoke1:

      Sounds like the RCA Living Stereo recording of the work since it is the CSO with Fritz Reiner. Have that here on SACD and it is very good.

        I need to start working on a classical collection.

        I had some Mozart on the other night and my daughter said, "Hey, that is the Mickie Mouse music.". (Fantasia) :)

          Where I first heard Bald Mountain many years ago and it stuck with me ever since. The animation that went with it gave the willies for awhile too!

            Exactly. I was principal trumpet for our group. When we performed in concert it was intense. Chilling.

            Love that feeling that music can do......

              Oh wow, I loved playing Russian Easter Overture in my High School days. :jiggy:

              Here's another cool piano rendition of Night on Bald Mountain. This doesn't seem quite as moving to me,but impressive none the less.

                Haha, we all have to start somewhere. I received all early classical music exposure from the Warner Brothers cartoons from the middle of the 20th century. I didn't realize how well they stuck with me until I started to actually learn about music, and I started to remember all the cartoons from back in the day. The Anvils falling on Daffy and the Ant army episodes were two of my favorites :)
