Yiruma – Maybe Christmas (Orchestra Version)

Piano for beginners No Comments »

Maybe…. 이번 겨울엔 우리 다시 만날 수 있을까요?
Maybe… 봄이 오면, 우리가 다시 함께 둘러 앉아 웃을 수 있을까요?

어느 해 보다 힘든 한 해를 보낸 우리에게 이루마가 건네는 따뜻한 위로.

2001년 겨울, 23살의 풋풋한 청년이 만들었던 아련한 선율들은 어느덧 20년의 시간을 지나 많은 사람들의 삶에 배경음악이 되고 있다.

작곡가 겸 피아니스트 이루마가 데뷔 20주년을 맞이하며 앨범 발매에 앞서 매달 새로운 곡을 선보인다. 데뷔 20주년을 맞이하여 20년 동안 꾸준히 사랑받아 온 그의 곡들을 여러 형식으로 재해석하여 매달 발매할 예정이며, 그 첫 시작으로 이루마가 20년 전에 처음 발매한 곡 ‘May Be’를 오케스트라 협연 곡으로 편곡한 “Maybe Christmas”가 오늘(11일) 정오 첫선을 보인다.

2001년 12월 처음 피아노 솔로곡으로 발매되었던 Maybe가 가진 싱그럽고 영롱한 메인 멜로디를 유지하면서, 원곡이 가진 당김음 등을 덜어내고 좀 더 여유 있는 박자로 편곡하여 오케스트라의 웅장한 선율이 잘 살아날 수 있도록 구성하였고, 마스터링은 폴메카트니, 비틀즈, 한스짐머, 해리포터 OST 등을 마스터링한 영국 에비로드의 Simon Gibson 이 담당하였다.

이루마가 야심 차게 준비한 첫 오케스트라 곡이자 20주년 활동의 첫 시작을 여는 싱글앨범인 이번 Maybe Christmas는 올 한해도 잘 버텨낸 나를 위로하고, 힘든 시간 멀리서라도 함께 해준 주변 사람들을 돌아보는 연말연시의 따뜻한 배경음악이 되어 줄 것이다.

Maybe… will we be meeting again this winter?
Maybe… will we be sitting around and laugh once again when it comes to the spring?

Yiruma sends a warm message for getting through to the most challenging year ever.

The breathtakingly beautiful melodies, composed by a 23-year-old young man twenty years ago, are still remembered and stayed in people’s hearts.

As a composer and a pianist, Yiruma comes to us with each new song every month. Then, finally, the full album will be released, celebrating his debut’s 20th year. The very best pieces of Yiruma are newly arranged and will be open every month. The journey starts with a new single album, “Maybe Christmas” – recently rearranged based on his very first song, “May Be” – is out at noon today (December 11).

“Maybe Christmas” keeps its original song’s refreshing and mysterious melody. “May Be” is written initially as a solo piano piece. However, the new music has a richer sound with orchestrations, using more space rather than syncopation. The mastering is also done by Simon Gibson, who worked with Paul McCartney, The Beatles, Hans Zimmer, and many more.

“Maybe Christmas” is Yiruma’s very first tune with an orchestra and of the 20th-anniversary project. This single album gives us the message of consolations to us in these challenging times and allows us to look around and thank the people around – whether you are in the distance or not. It will keep us warm, especially at these times of the end of the year.

Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 | Daniel Barenboim & the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra (complete symphony)

Piano for beginners No Comments »

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra conducted by Daniel Barenboim performs Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at the Berlin Philharmonic. It’s supported by singers Angela Denoke, Waltraud Meier, Burkhard Fritz and René Pape. The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra is a very special ensemble: It is made up of young Israeli and Arab musicians and is campaigning for a peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict. The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, which was founded in 1999, gives concerts all over the world. Proceeds from the concert in Berlin went to the Barenboim-Said Academy, which supports musical education programs.

The 9th Symphony in D minor op. 125 is the last finished symphony by the composer Ludwig van Beethoven. The work was premiered in Vienna on May 7, 1824 in the presence of Beethoven, who was already completely deaf and was a complete success. The fourth movement is also known as “Ode to Joy” and is one of the most popular songs in the world. Since 1985, the main theme of the
last movement has been the official European anthem.

I. Allegro ma non troppo, un poco maestoso 00:00
II. Molto vivace 17:54
III. Adagio molto e cantábile 29:59
IV. Presto 47:10
