Music from the Talent Showcase

350px-grun_-_chamber_music_concert1This evening I downloaded the following pieces for my girl’s iPod Shuffles. I want to have the girls learn the names of each piece and the composer, but I will probably have to be satisfied with them recognizing the music!

  • Lift Thine Eyes…..Felix Mendelssohn
  • Go Down Moses…..Arr. Hayes
  • The Place of the Blest…..Randall Thompson
  • Chorus of the Cigarette Girls, from the opera Carmen…..Georges Bizet
  • Baby Elephant Walk…..Henry Mancini
  • Also Sprach Zarathustra…..Richard Strauss
  • Piano Concerto No. 5 in D Major…..W.A. Mozart
  • Piano Concerto in F Minor…..J.S. Bach
  • E.T. Theme…..John Williams
  • Schindler’s List…..John Williams  (Theme & Jewish Town)
  • Harry Potter Theme…..John Williams
  • Star Wars:  The Phantom Menace…..John Williams

I tried in vein to find a copy of Concerto in A minor by Charles de Beriot on iTunes. So, instead I’ll fall back on youtube. The girl in this video is about the same age as the one performing last evening.
