JP Marat - Classic Marat - Alexander Nevsky

This week we offer the soundtrack from the 1938 film entitled "Alexander Nevsky" directed by Sergei Eisenstein and scored by Sergei Prokofiev. This brilliant composition marries soaring choral with a deeply emotive orchestration. The film tells the story of a 13th Century invasion of Russia by the Teutonic Knights and their subsequent defeat by Prince Alexander Nevsky. In actual fact . . . coming immediately before WWII . . . it presages the Nazi Invasion of the Soviet Union and their subsequent rout.

JP Marat - Requiem da Camera

When WCRS returns to the FM radio early in 2017, I'll launch a new program on Sunday morning entitled "Classic Marat," offering the very finest in Alternative Classic, Chorale, Opera and Jazz music. This week please enjoy "Requiem Da Camera" by Gerald Finzi. This hidden masterpiece, begun in 1924 and only finished in 1990, is his lamentation for those brave men and women, of all nations, who fell during the "Great War" (1914-1918). With social conflict all around us (Iraq, Syria, etc), this requiem (musical composition in remembrance of the dead) is as pertinent today as it was then. The opening track is JS Bach's, "The Little Fugue in G Minor."
