Dansons la Chaconne

In 1942, acclaimed American dancer / choreographer José Limón created a new piece set to J.S. Bach’s Chaconne from the Partita No. 2 in D Minor for solo violin. Now an integral part of the repertory of his namesake company, earlier this year the ensemble teamed up with WQXR and violinist Johnny Gandelsman for this gorgeous video, shot in the Limón Dance Company’s Harlem rehearsal space.

...Da nun Jesus den Essig genommen hatte, sprach er:

JESUS

Es ist vollbracht.

ARIE (alt)

Es ist vollbracht,

o Trost vor die gekränkten Seelen,

die Trauernacht

läßt nun die letzte Stunde zählen,

der Held aus Juda siegt mit Macht

und schließt den Kampf.

es ist vollbracht.

Aria mit 30 Veränderungen

The legend surrounding the 'Goldberg Variations', performed here by Jean Rondeau for All of Bach, is such a nice one. Count Hermann Karl von Keyserlinck was having trouble sleeping and asked Bach for some pleasant music to pass the time, to be played by Keyserlinck’s harpsichord prodigy Johann Gottlieb Goldberg.

Recorded for the project All of Bach on June 6th 2017 at the Concertgebouw, Bruges. If you want to help us complete All of Bach, please subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/2vhCeFB or consider donating http://bit.ly/2uZuMj5.

Christopher Nupen about the performance: 

"A memorable performance of the Bach partita, shot live at a public concert in London which helped us to learn that there is almost always a depth to live performance on film that is frequently missing from studio performances. [...] The partita in D minor partita BWV 1004 includes the great chaconne, one of the towering masterpieces of Western music."

Sphères

Court métrage d'animation de Norman McLaren et de René Jodoin. Dans une sorte de jeu de mouvement, ils font virevolter des sphères blanches dans un ciel coloré en mouvance. Ces sphères s'alignent, se groupent et se multiplient, entrant parfois en collision l'une contre l'autre. Au piano, Glenn Gould exécute des extraits du « Clavecin bien tempéré » de Bach et donne au film son rythme et l'allure qui le caractérise.
