Pipe organ music that kicks your ears up, but in a good way. :)

The sombre clarity of the pipe organ.

One can only dabble with the current popular music for so long. Today, it is back to the Baroque with Telemann and a wonderful harpsichord concerto.

Telemann’s Concerto in B minor App. TWV 33:1. This work originally was scored for violin and orchestra (now lost) and today exists only in the composer’s own harpsichord arrangement. Unlike the Overtures, this concerto is a simpler, more straightforward piece,

Bear Mccreary loves Taiko drumming. So say we all.

This track was first played on the re-imagined “Battlestar Galactica” television series during the season 2 episode “Pegasus”, for its final, climactic scene. After Battlestar Galactica Flight Deck Chief Galen Tyrol and Pilot Karl Agathon are arrested, on the orders of Fleet Admiral Helena Cain, for the accidental death of Battlestar Pegasus’ “Cylon Interrogator” Lieutenant Thorne (while stopping Thorne and his men during Thorne’s interrogation (and attempted rape) of Cylon Sharon “Boomer” Valerii. Galactica Commander William Adama is informed that both men have been tried and convicted of murder and treason by Cain, and are to be executed. Adama, having earlier been told by Cain that the men would receive a fair tribunal trial, orders CIC to assemble a Marine Strike Team and to prepare to launch alert Vipers. He then contacts the Pegasus and Cain, angrily demanding an explanation of Cain’s actions. When the Admiral’s statements of the men’s guilt and her judgment fails to satisfy him, Adama, fully aware of the possible chaos he’s about to unleash, orders the launch of Galactica’s fighters, and then tightly demands the return of the two men. Cain, noting the launch of Vipers and a Raptor from Galactica, tightly cautions Adama to stand down. Adama angrily refuses, and Cain, also well aware of the possibly dire consequences, orders ‘Action Stations’, the launch of Pegasus’ alert Vipers to meet Galactica’s, and the targeting of Galactica herself. As the fighters approach each other, it is obvious that the very volatile confrontation could get completely out of hand.

I love it when the CBC puts together some fascinating historical tidbits about the music I enjoy.

Joseph Haydn’s Concerto per il Clarino, (Hob.: VIIe/1) (Trumpet Concerto in E flat major) was written in 1796 for his long-time friend Anton Weidinger. Joseph Haydn was 64 years of age.
