Two more items from Godowsky's Java Suite. I am still totally besotted by this suite, which shows Godowsky at his most beguiling and perceptive.
I worked on these for about a year, and still they are not perfect, bah... But I need to let go for now.
The Kraton is a splendid Javanese palace in Yogyakarta, the former residence of the Sultan Hamengkoeboewono. Near this palace there is a water palace which fell into disrepair and decline after the sultan's reign. Both places inspired Godowsky to write some of his finest (IMO) music.Godowsky - Java Suite - 10: In the Kraton (8:11)Godowsky - Java Suite - 11: The Ruined Water Castle at Djokja (5:07)
Comments welcome, and yes I know where all the bugs are
