Parabola concertante by Rodion Shchedrin (1932-). For cello, string orchestra and timpani. This edition: ED 9407. Orchestra Music. Grade 5. Piano reduction with solo part. Composed 2001. 36 pages. Duration 15 minutes. Published by Schott Music (SD.49008410). ISBN 9790001131384. Bei einem Komponisten, der mit seinen Werken in nahezu allen musikalischen Gattungen vertreten ist, ist es nicht erstaunlich, dass diese Vielseitigkeit seines Schaffens auch zu ungewohnlichen Besetzungen fuhrt, wie z. B. in "Music from afar" fur 2 Bassblockfloten, oder in "Balalaika" fur eine Solo-Violine, die durchweg pizzicato spielt. Mit dieser Vorliebe setzt Shchedrin in "Parabola concertante" zum begleitenden Streichorchester Pauken ein, die dem in seinem Gesamtgestus verhaltenen, besinnlichen Stuck einen charakteristischen Kontrapunkt geben. Geschrieben ist das Stuck fur den Altmeister des Cellospiels Mstislav Rostropovitch, der auch das Werk beim Internationalen Cello-Festival Kronberg uraufgefuhrt hat.

About Hal Leonard Fake Books A "fake book" contains songs written in a concise format that includes only the melody and chords, letting you interpret the song's performance as you feel is appropriate. This is great for quickly learning songs by yourself or with an ensemble. Each song in a fake book only has a single melody actually written out in notes, which is usually the vocal or lead melody. This melody will have the lyrics written beneath the notes, with each word aligned to its corresponding note. Above the notes of the melody will appear the names of the appropriate chords to play - for example, a "C minor" chord would be written as "Cmin" or Cm", rather than writing out all of the notes in those chords as they appeared in the original version of the song. This format is very compact, which is why you will often see fakebooks containing 500 or more songs.

Tanja - Katja II. (Romanze im Volkston). By Rodion Shchedrin (1932-). For female voice and violin. This edition: ED 9535. Vocal Music. Score and parts. Composed 1998. 11 pages. Duration 8 minutes. Published by Schott Music (SD.49015651). ISBN 9790001133548. Tiefe slawische Empfindung und packende Virtuositat - das zeichnet viele Kompositionen Rodion Shchedrins aus. Auch wenn er langst zu einem Weltburger geworden ist, bleibt der in Moskau Geborene dennoch ein originar russischer Komponist, dessen Bindung zur russischen Musikfolklore und Dichtung nie abgebrochen ist. In Tanja - Katja entwickelt Shchedrin allein unter Verwendung des Silbenmaterials der beiden Frauennamen eine Melodiestruktur von tiefster Emotionalitat. Ein weiter Bogen spannt sich von den Wurzeln des traditionell russischen Liedgutes bis hin zu zeitgenossischen Kompositionstechniken. Als Lieder ohne Worte entstehen auf rein musikalischem Weg plastische Psychogramme - auch wenn nicht wirklich verraten wird, wer sich hinter den zwei ratselhaften Namen verbirgt.
