Rarity and curiousity

Post by relative » Sat Mar 13, 2010 2:11 pm

As it is not piano, nor vocal music, but may be anybody is interested :)))
Found on one very strange small Russian site.
Book named "Krasnoarmeyskie pesni" or (Soviet) Red army songs. 1939. (djvu)
Acually it is what`s now called "Fake book". Unfortunately text (most interesting part) is presented on Russian :lol:

Hello everyone,
it was in the old forum, I think,
where someone posted a picture of a "round keyboard piano",
where the keyboard literally went round the player (well, a bit).

Can anyone figure out what I mean or have the picture that was posted and could share it again?
That would be really appreciated!

Thanks,
Arglmann

Music without accidentals. I wonder if anyone can identify
any examples of movements of music without any sharps
or flats, other than those present in the key signature itself.
Very easy children's pieces don't need to be considered.

Otto Olsson 10 variations on Ave Maris stella for organ. It is written totally on the white keys with absolutely no accidentals at all using one of the old church modes.

Interesting, Brian. I'm hoping the your white-key piece doesn't have
any natural signs either. (I remember seeing something in F major,
where every B was preceded by a natural sign, so that piece wouldn't
have passed the test.)

The piece I spotted which caused me to ask the question is one of the
Choruses from Handel's oratorio Esther. It's in E major, and sounds
incredibly natural. It's as if Handel wrote it without even realising
what he'd achieved.

It is as pure as driven snow timtin, not one accidental or deliberamental, sharp, flat or undecided natural. I will scan it and post it in the organ section. The melody is in the dorian mode and the piece is Op.42 published by augener in 1913. at the foot of the first page is the information, " * White notes only are used through this piece."

regards
Brian

I presume that piece in question will be the Allegro Barbaro from Op.35 by our good friend C.V. Alkan which is nominally in F but every Bb is naturalised and there are only white notes being played throughout the piece, which is also composed on one of the church tones, though not the Dorian.
There must be more you would think, you've got me intrigued now!

Brian
