KNIGHT OF OPERATION FLORIMON HERVE

This composer composed various spiritual works, but did not admit to anyone that he dreamed of operetta. Then he nevertheless created 80 operettas, although he already dreamed of completing a symphony-oratorio. Over time, Florimon Herve was recognized as the father of the operetta, but the addictions of the eccentric creator always doubled, as, indeed, his whole life. A gifted singer, composer, actor and playwright was eccentric and unpredictable. Nobody knew about his double life, nor about the plots of his best operettas in a madhouse, becoming the most fun and mocking composer of the second half of the 19th century and creating a perky satirical genre.

Little is known about Florimon Herve’s childhood and youth. He was born in the small town of Uden in northern France on June 30, 1825, and received the name Florimon Ronge. The boy had a beautiful voice, so from an early age he sang in the church choir. Continue reading

Each of the participants deserves a separate story, but it was precisely together that they became iconic rock figures.

The history of this glorious band goes back to 1966 when the drummer of one of the Liverpool bands Chris Curtis decided to create his own band Roundabout (“Carousel”). Fate brought him to John Lord, who was already known in narrow circles and was known as a great organist. By the way, it turned out that he had a wonderful guy in mind who simply performed miracles with a guitar. This musician turned out to be Richie Blackmore, who at that time played as part of the Three Musketeers group in Hamburg. He was immediately called from Germany and offered a place in the team.

Mugham

MUGAM is the main form (genre) of Azerbaijani professional music of oral tradition.

Part of the pan-eastern culture of macamata. The poetic basis of Mugam is the gazelles of classical and modern poets. Monodial mugham art has developed over many centuries, transmitted from generation to generation.

Cyclic mugam compositions are embodied in small and large instrumental (solo) and vocal-instrumental (ensemble) forms. The mugham composition is based on frets (modes), each of which has a characteristic final melodic formula (ayag).

An important feature of Azerbaijani Mugam is the improvisation of a metrically free ornamental melody within the framework of a certain canon. Performers also have some freedom in composing a mugam composition (selection of parts, their sequence and quantity). Depending on local characteristics, time (season, time of day) of performance, talent of the performer is the same. mugams can have different options. Mugam schools are preserved: Baku, Karabakh, Shirvan, etc. Continue reading
