Hello!! Here are three more Alkan presentations for you, live in concert: "Song of the Madwoman on the Seashore" from Preludes Op. 31, and Allegro Barbaro from 12 Etudes in all the Major Keys, Op. 35.



Also, I am a conducting student, so I asked eight of my talented friends to help me put together a performance of Alkan's most bizarre and humorous composition, Funeral March on the Death of a Parrot for SATB voices, three oboes, and bassoon. Here is a video of that, if you are interested.

Very nice, and a good combination of pieces. I've in fact never head the Funeral March before, though I seem to recall Raymond Lewenthal sang bass on a recording of it!

Thanks for these!

Thanks for these!

He sang the bass mini-recit after the double-reed introduction, and he did it down an octave! But he had a chorus of opera singers, and the basses in the opera chorus sang the bass line. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
