Andre Kostelanetz

Andre Kostelanetz

André Kostelanetz (22 de dezembro de 1901, St. Petersburg, Rússia - 13 de janeiro de 1980) foi uma popular maestro e arranjador de música orquestrada, um dos pioneiros do estilo easy listening. Fugiu da revolução bolchevique e foi morar no EUA, onde se apresentava em programas de rádio nos anos 20. Na década de 1930, ele apresentava seu próprio programa semanal na CBS, oAndré Kostelanetz Apresenta. Kostelanetz era conhecido pela preparação e gravação de música clássica para grandes audiências, bem como versões de músicas orquestrais e para espetáculos na Broadway. Ele fez inúmeras gravações ao longo de sua carreira, com vendas de mais de 50 milhões de discos. Por muitos anos, também regeu a Filarmônica de Nova York e aparece em shows e gravações, nas quais aparecem como "Andre Kostelanetz e Sua Orquestra".
Kostelanetz é mais conhecido pela série de easy listening de álbuns instrumentais pelo selo Columbia Records de 1940 até a década de 1980. Fora da América, uma das suas obras mais conhecidas foi um arranjo orquestral da música "With a Song in my Heart", pela BBC, onde se tornou uma espécie de marca registrada.
Perto do fim de sua carreira a gravação, o nome dele era mais do que uma marca de uma verdadeira representação de quem realmente fez a música, porque quase toda a sua produção na década de 1970 foi organizada por outros. Arranjadores creditado em 1970 nos álbuns de Kostelanetz incluem Teo Macero, Torrie Zito, Hank Levy, Luther Henderson, Jack Cortner, Eddie Sauter, Claus Ogerman, Jack Pleis, Tommy Newsom, Harold Wheeler, Bobby Scott, Homer Dennison, James Tyler, Jr., Byron Olson, Dale Oehler, Ben Lanzarone, Lamont Johnson, Wade Marcus, Patrick Williams, Sammy Nestico, Vincent Warren, Dick Hyman, Jorge Calandrelli, James J. Wisner, Al Capps e Don Sebesky.

Surely, we live in a wonderland. I wonder, why there are so little reactions to many nice albums posted here in this blog.
At least, one can find here well prepared representative colections devoted to famous musicians. Isn't this not enough for visiters to express their appreciations ?
As for me, I liked this blog for its completeness of musical material. Some musicians are presented here by large collections and with a good quality of mp3 rips.
I have already obtained something (one has to send a letter to Silvia - master of this blog, and wait a little, several days).

And now it is a turn for Andre Kostelanetz. He is a great maestro and arrangementer. The sound of his orchestra is clear, well balanced with strings and air blowing instruments. Something from Chaykovski... Soft and solid at the same time. Russian guy.
Thanks a lot to Viagemusical for such gold music.
