J S Bach: Ransome and Wilde in Moonlight

 

 

 

The news today is that the recording of Bach’s Prelude Number One went like a dream and is there on the new Moonlight page to add a new dimension to this site.

Mr Ray Turner of Lancaster Film Makers’ Co-op kindly filmed this video, had it ready for today and took the photographs, creating a special moonlight effect so a big thank you goes to him.

You will notice if you visit the new page that Bach’s magnificent piece of music  has a ripple effect like running water and seems so appropriate to represent the streams, lakes and rivers of the Lake District that Arthur Ransome loved so much and the life on the ocean wave or river lifestyle that was so central to him as a man.

It is also appropriate to the amazing characters in his novels and their adventures.

Yet we must not forget that Wilde also was a keen sailor.  He visited the Worthing regatta a year before his disastrous trials and enjoyed trips on the water.

Bach’s masterpiece also reflects the mood of the age in which these writers lived, its triumphs and tragedies.

Made up for Moonlight

Soon I will be performing music which is a suitable reflection of the genius of Arthur Ransome and Oscar Wilde on my new Moonlight page.

It is for my followers to ‘chill’ to.

Last night a recording was made on video of the ultimate moonlight piece a.k.a. J S Bach’s Prelude Number 1.

Alas, there was a hitch!

I hope you like the photo.

The positive response led to the conclusion it is worth a re-blog. To those who have seen this thank for your support and truly inspiring comments.

If anyone is new to this page here is an opening film which is part of a lost story about Alfred Douglas and Oscar Wilde.  They meet in Rouen after his release from prison in 1897.

All the players are from the north west of England and it was filmed by Lancaster Film Makers’ Co-op in 2015.  Students of Lancaster Royal Grammar School play the main parts.

Here is the link.

For my followers, visuals on Wilde Reflections, my last post, showcasing the work of Mr Fraser and Ms Bryony Rogers will hopefully arrive soon.
