George Whitefield Chadwick - "Tobasco" overture
« on: December 14, 2020, 01:13:04 AM »
American composer George Whitefield Chadwick [1854-1931] composed Tabasco (burlesque opera) in 1894.  It is not available on any recording format/never was recorded.

The Czech orchestra 'Hradec Kralove Philharmonic' conducted by Paul Mauffray performed the overture and this was taped in 2014, I believe, but I don't know the location or event.   Like virtually all of Chadwick's work, an excellent piece. Since this has upgraded audio it can't be run in a shell  on the browser - you'll need to d/l it, sorry - .mkv files can be played on any media player worth tuppence.

good for 90 days, I believe

The Germans, who make doctrines out of everything, deal with music learnedly; the Italians, being voluptuous, seek in it lively, though fleeting, sensations; the French, more vain than perceptive, manage to speak of it wittily; and the English pay for it . . . - Stendhal
