And if you’ve already purchased one, you can enter to win for a friend, as the blog Film Music: The Neglected Art points out, it’s a great choice for something a little different this holiday season!
“Looking for something a little different to buy for the holiday season? Delos, the great American label for the past 38 years, has come up with an interesting twist in a CD offering which includes 24 Etudes (Op. 10 & 25) of Frederic Chopin coupled with a second data CD which offers 24 delicious recipes fully printable with photos. Evelyne Brancart, professor of music (piano), at Indiana University, performed the etudes in a live performance at the Auer Concert Hall on the campus of Indiana University on 7-11-2003. Her performance clearly shows the familiarity she has with these works.
The chosen recipes, also by Brancart, are designed to go along with the music and as you read and study the recipe the etude is also playing. As an example the famous “tristee” is composed in a classic form of ABA: the melody, something completely different in the middle, and then a return to the melody. The chosen recipe, a delectable Ronde Italienne is eggplant, omelet, cheeses, and roasted peppers in a three layer offering matching the ABA format of the work.” – Thomas Keifner, Film Music: The Neglected Art
