“Marche Slave" by Tchaikovsky, as played by the Slovenian Symphony Orchestra,conducted by Anton Nanut.
I highly recommend looking up and buying or listening to this specific recording. It’s time length is 9 minutes and 41 seconds (9:41) It’s tempos are just right and (in my opinion) one of the best recordings of this song.
The beginning is so ominous with such a dark tone to it and overshadowed with a mystery like feeling. This recording is so spectacular i must say. The break into the romantic like sections of the main theme of the song played in the beginning so uplifting and almost slightly unexpected. Then you have that main section in the beginning that repeats itself just before the ending finally, it works itself into such a flurry and frantic feel with the winds and the strings doing the progressive in time trills that actually make it feel like its moving along faster than it actually is (omg that piccolo trilling really gives you such a thrill) and i could imagine what a ride that takes the basses for a more than your usual rhythm and harmony roles (not to say that you always play that role. Your Solo pieces are awsome). The counter melody balance against the rhythm, harmony, and especially the melody are just intriguing to listen to cause you don’t know what to listen to (the brass with melody or counter up beats with sparkling trills.) OMG that finally at the end, the speed, accuracy, and precision. That piccolo again F*** almighty I dream of being in a professional orchestra playing the piccolo to that song, I don’t give a damn about not being first chair flute in this song cause that piccolo part is exhilarating just like parts in “Morning, Noon, and Night” etc. and it fools you about when its gonna end cause it tripped me up when i thought it was gonna end. frick cameron let the peeps listen to the song and shut up >.<
