  • On An Overgrown Path: Music-like-water
    Symphony Orchestra Pierre Boulez The BBC is already supplying every channel through which music can flow live music making CDs DVD s satellite FM AM web and on demand broadcasts music book and magazine publishing and MP3 files The BBC s business model is music like water and it is here today Gerd Leonhard says that in the new music like water order all music all artists will be in those pipelines And this is where we start to differ Dream on Gerd Music like water won t bring a utopia where every recording of every work by every composer from Evaristo Abaco to Johann Zumsteeg is available via the technology of your choice What will happen no what is happening is the new utility companies become gate keepers And Pliable s first sonata for prepared piano and vihuela won t get through the gate unless I cut a deal with the keeper And financially that means I am better off clearing tables in a fast food joint than composing music Pessimism on my part No fact Amazon com with their world wide operating companies are a global gatekeeper in the brave new books like water world Which means if you are a small specialist book publisher they will surcharge your book before they list it Believe me I know I am also a small publisher And the global gatekeepers are already flexing their muscles in the music like water world I wonder what role Naxos played in Marin Alsop s appointment in Baltimore Music like water is here to stay And I don t particularly like the taste of it But the good news is Pliable doesn t have to exist on water alone I prefer music like Château Latour And that also is here today Volume 24 of the John Elliot Gardiner Bach Cantata Pilgrimage has just arrived chez Pliable This remarkable project was conceived to bypass a global gatekeeper Universal Music who wanted to restrict the flow of music like water by shelving Gardiner s visionary Bach Cantata project I wrote a very positive post about John Eliot Gardiner s Soli Deo Gloria record company when their first releases came out Suffice to say their new double CD of the cantatas for the Third and Fourth Sundays after Easter is a work of art in every respect and even surpasses the outstanding vintage of the first volumes Exquisite and tactile packaging that revives the long lost art of sleeve design Informative and entertaining sleeve notes Perfect bound slip cases And the music the music the sinfonia from this recording of BWV 146 recorded in the Schlosskirche Altenburg with its mighty Trost Organ is music to die for Yea music like water is the way to go And I ll keep writing about it while I sip my music like Château Latour thanks very much And here courtesy of SDG is your chance to taste some premier cru music making from Volume 24 of the Bach Cantata Pilgrimage

  • On An Overgrown Path: Rhythm Is It! - the new Fantasia?
    But for me the mix of three musical genres results in a film that won t offend those who don t appreciate classical music but also won t inspire and extend them in the way Fantasia did so brilliantly Make up your own mind by visiting the Rhythm Is It web site and watching the trailer Or buy the DVD online Or just sample the score with these audio files and enjoy the first rock music ever on an overgrown path The Wickeds Schiksale Karim Sebastian Ellis The Stranger Then tell us using the comments feature below whether you think Rhythm Is It will bring in those neophytes the dabblers and the ungray Footnote In 1961 Stravinsky wrote that he received 1 200 his share of a total 5 000 for the use of his music in the film He said the music was not covered by copyright in the USA at the time and he was told it would be used regardless of whether he granted permission But Disney wanted a formal copyright agreement so the film could be shown in other countries In typical Stravinsky fashion the composer managed to have his cake and eat it He took the money and then went on to describe the use of his music as execrable and said the segment as a whole involved a dangerous misunderstanding He would have been very much at home in today s music like water marketplace If you enjoyed this post take an overgrown path to Michel Petrucciani Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Wednesday August 31 2005 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest 2 comments Pliable said Great response to this story on the excellent From the New World titled Fantasia Fantasies Quote Rattle is the English Thielemann Both are adept at talking a good fight but when push comes to shove they fold like poorly constructed houses of cards That having been said it s swell the kiddies are getting into classical However let s use Mahler Stravinsky is a bit much That s fighting talk 10 18 am Anonymous said Rhythm Is It plays at the Museum of Fine Arts on Sept 11 at 3 30 pm for those of you in the Boston area who might want to see it Stefanie L 9 19 pm Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September

  • On An Overgrown Path: The real 'Piano Man'
    Peter Maxwell Davies Harrison Birtwistle Elgar Horwarth and John Ogdon but I never knew this story about Mr Ogdon and his triumphs and severe illnesses pliable you have cited almost a dozen largely British composers who I would like now to listen to or relisten to including Kaikhosru Sorabji George Lloyd and Charles Alkan Having just watched with my spouse this past Sunday night the generally acceptable and strong Hollywood treatment of New York Times writer Sylvia Nasar s story of American mathematics and economics Nobel laureate John Nash A Beatiful Mind I can only say that this short on an overgrown path posting affected me just as deeply I had read the Nasar book years before seeing the movie I will trust that Mr Ogdon s sketches for his Melville Symphony are in safe and responsible hands 2 11 pm Berend de Boer said Pliable you wrote stunning interpretations of the Russian romantic repertoire Is it really that good How does it compare to the best 9 10 pm Anonymous said umm In 1962 John Ogdon was joint winner with his friend Vladimir Ashkenazy of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition He wowed the Moscow audiences with his performances of Rachmaninov Balakirev and Scriabin as well as the Tchaikovsky 1st Piano Concerto which became his signature piece 9 33 pm Pliable said Berend that s a trick question I deliberately used the words stunning interpretations and not definitive interpretations My view is that Ogdon was an extraordinarily powerful and moving player But there are many other pianists whose playing was closer to the letter of the composer s intentions but not necessarily closer to the heart of the composer That s my view Here are some random critics writing about his recorded interpretations of Rachmaninov these recordings show Ogdon in the repertory he loved best cutting through the torrents of notes to find the structural core the sovereign command of the playing is never in doubt Andrew Clements The Guardian 23 8 02 a three disc set that testifies to Ogdon s remarkable affinity with Rachmaninov s musical idiom He is in commanding form Geoffrey Norris The Daily Telegraph 31 8 02 what shines through is a breathtaking mastery of the idiom and compelling musical imagination to keep you ont the edge of your seat Ogdon exalts in the turbulent Etudes Tableaux as never before An unmissable set Julian Haylock Classic FM Magazine October 02 Rated by Classic FM Magazine as Best Buy Instrumental CD October 2002 these are deeply satisfying performances poetic as well as virtuosic especially in the Preludes where the changes of mood are superbly captured and manipulated he is in dazzling form Both the sonatas are grandly performed No student of pianism will want to be without these discs Michale Kennedy The Sunday Telegraph 15 09 02 Hope that helps 9 54 pm Pliable said Garth fascinating paths to explore George Lloyd was a post Vaughan Williams phase I went through Fine tonal workmanship a bit like

  • On An Overgrown Path: Quiet celebration with friends....
    explain to her that entrepreneu r was a complimentary description But I am afraid she was not persuaded or was I distracted by those pearls The photo immediately above was taken in Paris in 1978 Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic were playing two concert in the historic Théâtre des Champs Elysées venue for the infamous first performance of the Rite of Spring Alexis Weissenberg was then Karajan s court pianist rather as Siegfried Lauterwasser was his court photographer See my post Downfall and the mystery of Karajan s personal photographer I was working for EMI Angel and we were recording a cycle of the Beethoven concertos with Karajan and Weissenberg In the photo my long suffering wife Sorojoni sorry I can t do the dishes tonight darling I have to get that Perotin MP3 link working is talking to Weissenberg I rather think she is telling Alexis that she prefers her fellow South American Claudio Arrau s interpretation of the Beethoven Many thanks for following my overgrown paths I haven t any real regrets But I do wish I was able to devote more space to my other loves of jazz architecture art and poetry follow the four links for personal favourite posts on those subjects So here in conclusion is Leonard Cohen s The Only Poem which very neatly sums things up the last twelve months on an overgrown path cheers This is the only poem I can read I am the only one can write it I didn t kill myself when things went wrong I didn t turn to drugs or teaching I tried to sleep but when I couldn t sleep I learned to write I learned to write what might be read on nights like this by one like me If you enjoyed this story follow this link to the very first tentative post on an overgrown path we ve come a long way since then Posted by Pliable at Wednesday August 24 2005 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest 2 comments Garth Trinkl said Happy first anniversary pliable and on an overgrown path You are a 21st c lighthouse for the wide world of music from very early music to very new music to jazz I wish you many many more years of music writing and cultural ecological and spiritual advocacy And thanks for sharing the wonderful personal photos of you your wife Ms Schwarzkopf and Mr Weissenberg Interestingly I attended a master class given by Ms Schwarzkopf at the University of Maryland at about the same time 1979 Also at that time I recall the University hosted a master class with Peter Pears Those were very memorable days for a young musician and you seem to have been very much at the center of the classical music universe as you are again today With best wishes 3 38 pm Pliable said In this first anniversary week it is pleasing to see On An Overgrown Path featured this
