Hello from Melode

Post by Melode » Fri Dec 29, 2017 10:14 pm

Dear Classical Guitar lovers, aficionados and dilettantes,

I chose Melode as my username in tribute to Grieg's lyric piece he called Melodie, which I first heard on Andres Segovia's, "The Romantic Guitar" album. I found the sheet and learned its simple yet dynamic beauty. Mélodie is the name the French music gives to its art song and for melody and song in general, like the German lied.

Melode has no usage and meaning, not even an acronym; so then, I define it here. Melode: n. full of melody, a load of melody; adj.: melodious

Hi David,

I first heard Segovia's playing of Melodie on Pandora a year or two ago and got infatuated with it. I ordered his transcription and learned to play it.
Mr. Delcamp also has a transcription of it on this site.

@ Luuttuaja (Rick)

Thank you for your validation of my affinity for Greig's Melodie. Segovia has three tunes by Greig and three by Mendelssohn on his Romantic Guitar album. I see that you like other Romantic era composers, like Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Schumann. Cool. The Romantics often wrote programme music, music that reflects some aspect of human existence or the natural world. Schumann was adept at programme music choosing topics that he could reflect musically, e.g., The Wild Horseman.
