A few month ago my new violin arrived from CHINA – http://www.theviolinproject.de/startseite.html — and this was the first time, that a violin “really matched” with my interests, which heavily are influenced by Hungarian Gipsy-music, as strange as this may seem to others.
For THIS NEW VIOLIN FROM CHINA I now offer worldwide as STUDY- and TRAINING-project a series of music-settings of the following:
Franz Lehar, The Tsarevich – Operette – No.5 “Es steht ein Soldat am Wolgastrand, hält Wache für sein Vaterland” ( “A forelorn soldier on outpost guard …”)
|Song of the Volga – Tsarevich – great version – orchestra – 4:56
(with solo violin, harp, timpani, balalaika/mandolin) – Lehar/Buike – 2nd edition (audio of 1st edition)
|audio mp3||sheetmusic pdf|
|Song of the Volga – Tsarevich – piano solo violin
|audio mp3||sheetmusic pdf|
|Song of the Volga – Tsarevich – brass/military
– Lehar/Buike – dedication: announcement of entering the Throne of Japan by Tenno Naruhito and Empress Masako, time-era “heisei” (beautiful harmony) on 22nd of October 2019
Allein, wieder allein
Es steht ein Soldat am Wolgastrand,
Hast du dort oben vergessen auf mich?
Song of the Volga
Alone, again alone
A soldier stands on Volga bank
Are you in heaven forgetful of me
It must be added because of TODAY MISSING EDUCATION in history: The original composer Franz Lehar / Ferenc Lehar is a born HUNGARIAN and in 1927 was reflecting memories from the imperial “kaiserlich-königlich – k.u.k.” Austro-Hungary, which was termianted in 1918 at end of First World War – and the use the German NAZI-Wehrmacht made LATER of this song in Second World War has NOTHING to do with the ORIGINAL “place in life” of this music! So far I know, any stalinist-communist “interpretation” of this piece of music should be IMPOSSIBLE at all!
Well, so far – there are planned
- a “small version” in style of Gipsy-banda
- a piano/violin version
- a great version for “brass / military”.
Holy (martyr) Tsarevich Dmitry (of Uglich) – 1582-1591 – On the morning after the orchestra-version (160) of this music was published – around 11th of October 2019 – in google books and German National Library, online ressources a rainbow similar to the one on this Nesterov-painting appeared over my living-place – see photo below!
Well, we normally say, that one strange event does not count – and therefor are glad, if a repetition would happen – which was the case: On 02.Nov.2019, Saturday, after finishing “162 Volgasong military-version” appeared at around 8:20 MEZ / CET the rainbow below, which was a double rainbow (with second weak rainbow not visible on my poor photo).
Ah, well, the copyrights: In understandings of IMSLP/Petrucci this title of 1927, of which in internet are – so far I searched – circulating “piano-reduction-scores” only, is in the “public domain” (according to the 50+ and 70+ plus rule, no known renewal of copyrights …) Besides, this music in today Germany and former lands of Austria-Hungaria is DYING FROM MEMORY, so that this training-work is – as they would say in Asian surroundings – for REBIRTH and REINCARNATION – especially dedicated to the memory of the people of Poland, Ukrainia, Hungary, Austria and Russia – but studied TODAY probably mainly in music-classes (violin and singing) of China, Japan and South Corea!
