OB-6: Wagner: Elegy (WWV 93)

Published on Sep 13, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Wagner's beautiful, languid 'Elegy', here performed on the OB-6. Very reminiscent of "Tristan & Isolde", Wagner's harmonic masterpiece (Tristan is possibly the greatest development of harmony of the entirety of 19th century composition).

If playing this piece on piano, I'd change chords quicker. But on the OB-6, I'm simply enjoying the sound. The little bell-like sounds: these are the product of the ring modulation.

The piece is trickier to play on OB-6 than on piano, due to the limited voices of the OB-6. A good stretch is also required (i.e at c.1:00 the LH is stretching a minor 10th, and at c.1:22 there's a minor 10th in the RH).

Getting very classical of late. Next video will be more typically 'synth' in style.

All best
