In April 2013 I was pleased to draw attention to Stephen Malinowski’s Music Animation Machine that featured a wonderful animation of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring based on the musical stave and giving a colourful and pictorial image of the music http://theclassicalreviewer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/stravinskys-rite-of-spring-as-you-have.html
Last week saw the tenth anniversary of Stephen’s animated graphical scores on YouTube. Now comes an equally spectacular animated graphical score of Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOWi8tOf5FA featuring organist Hans-André Stamm www.eufonia.de
Again you will find it great fun and, if you don’t read music, it can give a very good idea of pitch, note length and harmony. If you’re looking for some unusual entertainment over the holiday period, then give these animated scores a look.
There is much more information about Stephen’s fascinating and entertaining animated graphical scores on his website www.stephenmalinowski.com From here you can access the Music Animation Machine Youtube channel to find even more animations of other classical scores.
As I publish my last review before Christmas, I would like to take the opportunity to send Seasons’ Greetings to all of my followers and to all the Record Companies, Publishers and Music PR Companies that have supported me during 2015.
