    was or at least sounded much more agreeable than Philips experience had been with Out of Light Causton observed that as he has aged he has found he is able to write more complex music by keeping things more simple quavers crotchets minims on the page Causton worked on the piece for some 18 months and had a number of workshops and rehearsals with the European Union Youth Orchestra that fed into many aspects of the piece In fact his desire to create a gunshot that temporarily silences the music was not successfully realised until the third performance of the work and I wonder if youth orchestra commissions though the EUYO are a particularly strong youth orchestra for obvious reasons should not be somewhat more coveted than they seem to be in the professional world of composers No Comments Blog Getting it Right Live Blog Tagged 20x12 European Union Youth Orchestra Jerusalem New Music PRS Richard Causton Twenty Seven Heavens William Blake Getting it Right 2013 Julian Philips The first of 3 short presentations by current orchestral composers came from Julian Philips and focused on his work Out of Light 2001 commissioned for the BBC Proms that year Mr Philips recounted the events that led up to the commission including a number of vocal and orchestra commissions spanning 1992 1997 As a then unpublished composer Julian produced all the orchestral material for the piece and launched into creating the work In Julian s telling it seemed that the whole experience was less than ideal with little interaction between Julian and the conductor and even less with the orchestral players The performance was relatively successful but it quickly became clear to Philips that the orchestra had no plans to play the piece again We got to hear a few moments of Out of Light which was previously unknown to me The few short sections we heard were colourful and inviting The presentation of the piece felt rather more objective and detached than the urgency that marked the music we heard Philips description of the process as a sort of creative hit and run might have explained some of this dichotomy Mr Philips turned finally to the question of creative development and his feeling that the commissioner of the work should be intimately involved in the creation of the works they commission Julian clearly felt opera was a good example of this though he conceded there was a large difference between workshopping an opera with a few singers and a piano as opposed to a full orchestra He had though returned and re conceived large portions of Out of Light a few years after its premiere and had found a more engaged creative dialogue with the orchestra and conductor including feedback on form playability and poetic function far more fulfilling to his work Already a highly prolific composer of opera it is clear that Philips is a composer who is particularly nurtured by collaboration and creative feedback from the artists with whom he works His vision on a wholesome creative process is certainly an attractive if practically difficult one 1 Comment Blog Getting it Right Live Blog Tagged Julian Philips Out of Light Getting it Right 2013 Roundtable 1 Composer Residencies An obviously illustrious panel including composers and orchestral managers listed below gathered for the first round table discussion of Getting it Right 2013 By far the most interesting questions centred on the question of balancing breadth of commissions versus the depth of relationship created between an orchestra and composer during an extended individual residency Stephen Maddock of the CBSO suggested that an orchestra benefits in different ways to both of these situations in the later scenario developing a deep relationship with a composer while the former results in more commissions both in quantity and number of composers involved Paul Hughes mentioned the innovative recent practice of the BBC Symphony Orchestra to bridge these two ideas by bringing in a composer such as Oliver Knussen or John Adams as both a composer and programmer of music over the course of a residency it is probably not coincidental that both of these composers are also accomplished conductors This means the composer both writes some music for the orchestra but brings in a breadth of other composers My own intuition suggests this would provide a sort of synergy in that the orchestral players are not just presented with a single piece by a composer but instead meet the composer within the context of the music that composer is immersed in and loves Julian Anderson pointed out that there are many economic impacts of residencies and that there does need to be a practical and innovative approach to the way composers interact with orchestras There is not he pointed out any way that the economy can sustain a model where every composer who writes an orchestral work receives a full workshop read through of the piece six months before the performance date The roundtable discussion featured from left to right Paul Hughes BBCSO composers Colin Matthews Helen Grime Matthew Kaner chair Julian Philips Julian Anderson Stephen Maddock CBSO and Paul Newland Paul Hughes emphasised the need for composers to continue challenging and pushing orchestras and listeners The discussion turned to the last year s BBCSO performance of Ferneyhough s La Terre est un homme and the ability of something like this to be successfully achieved in weeks that are particularly well prepared and planned for The question that remains of course is how often an orchestra can produce the sustained effort and focus that is desperately needed to create even an adequate performance of such difficult works A rather pointed and extremely borad question at the end pulled forcefully on the positive nature of the entire discussion asking If everything is being run so well and being done so well if things have improved so much in the past 20 30 years why is contemporary classical music held in lower esteem than it ever has
