    Rostropovich The Chorus also participated in the internationally renowned Maryland Handel Festivals which took place in the 1980s and 1990s Edward Maclary is currently the director of the Chorus 3 45 pm Berend de Boer said When I see titles like this I feel sick Where are the musicians who remembers the 100 000 civilians who died in the largest urban battle of the Pacific War more than at Hiroshima Read this post http fallbackbelmont blogspot com 2005 08 untitled html 3 12 am Berend de Boer said Oh yeah I forgot the money quote The 100 000 civilians who died in the largest urban battle of the Pacific War more than at Hiroshima are not remembered in beautiful candles floating down darkened rivers or in flights of doves soaring into the blue sky there is no anti American significance to their deaths But they still live in the fading memory of that woman who hid for two days in the smoldering ruins of the neighborhood until the first American patrols came into view 3 13 am Pliable said Thanks for those two previous posts The beauty of blogs like on an overgrown path is that they lead to new discoveries Readers who like me want to find out more about the Battle for Manila can start with this link and this link The latter report which is headlined Battle for Manila reduced Pearl of the Orient to rubble has many resonances with the bombing of Dresden which I recently wrote about and which Shostakovich so movingly immortalised in his 8th Symphony which was given a wonderful performance last night at the BBC Proms under Bernard Haitink Do any readers know of musical tributes to the victims of the war in the South Pacific we could explore The purpose of my headlines is not to make people sick It is to bring events such as these to a wider audience and to encourage better understanding Berend you have a fine blog I am sure it would be a great idea to use that to help people understand about the forgotten victims of the Pacific war and other atrocities 9 45 am Garth Trinkl said According to the United States Department of Energy approximately 70 000 died from the immediate impact of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima with over 100 000 dead by the end of 1945 due to fallout By the end of 1950 the U S government estimated that bomb casualities in Hiroshima alone could have exceeded 200 000 In Nagasaki the U S government estimates that approximately 40 000 Japanese were immediately killed with approximately 140 000 dead from radiation within 5 years Thus the U S government estimates that approximately 340 000 died within five years due to the impact and radiation effects of the two bombings Source U S Department of Energy http www mbe doe gov me70 manhattan hiroshima htm Readers may want to relisten to Krystoff Penderecki s Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima

  • On An Overgrown Path: Rare Romantic Requiems in Avignon
    I am not a first rate composer but rather a first rate second rate composer But the two Schumann Requiems really deserve to be programmed instead of the all too frequent repeats of the more popular war horses such as the Verdi So why aren t they heard more often There may be a contributory commercial reason The Requiem Opus 148 requires four soloists but is really a work for chorus and orchestra More fundamentally like his Violin Concerto these works were denounced by Schumann s friends after his death as second rate works composed while the master s mind was disintegrating and it was also suggested that he had little sympathy for sacred subjects The Opus 148 was not performed until eight years after the composer s death The Violin Concerto s time came in the 1930 s perhaps the first decade of the 21st Century will be the time for these other deserving works Requiems are a recurring destination on an overgrown path and t he wealth of information on the web never ceases to amaze me A very useful resource is the Requiem Survey It has 2247 classical vocal requiems in its database from 1550 composers and includes fragments and unfinished works The database contains some good programme notes and lists recordings For instance the Messa per Rossini mentioned in my Wiki brings collabarative music full circle post is well documented worth visiting This post is dedicated to Brother Roger Schutz founder of the Taizé community Born May 12th 1915 died August 16th 2005 Posted by Pliable at Saturday August 20 2005 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels avignon france goethe robert schumann 1 comment Anonymous said Until yesterday I hadn t been aware of the sad nature of Brother Roger Schutz s death Thank you for this dedication and for remembering him 4 35 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 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February 23 January 28 2013 257 December 21 November 17 October 31 September 8 August 35 July 24 June 24 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 2012 276 December 22 November 25 October 23 September 12 August 20 July 27 June 27 May 7 April 32 March 27 February 24 January 30 2011 299 December 22 November 21 October 42 September 12 August 24 July 38 June 29 May 5 April 34 March 9 February 33 January 30 2010 281 December 37 November 20 October 36 September 7 August 37 July 27 May 17 April 33 March 12 February 26 January 29

  • On An Overgrown Path: The bookless Mrs Beckham
    by at Clive Davis 3 13 pm Hucbald said Awesome post The internet promises to open up everyone s life who has access to it but I often wonder how much internet time is spent in trivial pursuits Bulletin Boards Chat Rooms er erotic image searches versus serious research like good blogging IMO the lowest common denominator factor will always be present in human endeavor As it always has been and the altruistic will exist on the margins Again as always The REALLY COOL THING about the net is that altruistically like minded individuals can find each other versus living in relatave isolation 5 45 pm naomi said I think we need to be careful before launching into attacks on those who don t read Statistics you quote which emanate from the IALS survey are highly suspect and have been criticised both in terms of the methodology used and the analysis of the data But why let the truth get in the way of a good headline and easy government rhetoric There are plenty of studies to show that actually people are much more literate than they are given credit for and book reading is only one means of using one s literacy New technology provides people with different means of expressing their creativity including blogging zines and so on I don t care if Victoria Beckham doesn t read I am just relieved that she has given up all pretence of being a singer I could go on about this for ever but need to finish a dissertation on literacy and new technologies in printed form of course since academic literacy forbids anything other than the printed word 6 02 pm Fairhaven Friend said This post coincides with my looking casually at the August issue of Harper s Magazine which as a feature article on the 2004 election called None Dare Call it Stolen see link to excerpt http www harpers org ExcerptNoneDare html While a main thrust of the piece is the data that has been uncovered about the political wheelings and dealings in Ohio central to the piece is the role of media in trivializing the important and raising the relevance of the trivial America is so market driven in every aspect of its life that understanding any issue comes down to does it make a buck and this is the height of aspirations in our culture Some of the dot com bust stems from the realization that these start ups weren t making any money technology that enriches in the form of lining pockets triumphs over technology that truly enriches Paradoxically this measuring stick for what one aspires to can backfire In my community there is a controversy over demolishing a historical mill building at a prime site on the waterfront area to make way for a Home Depot The selling point that people can hear is Home Depot hires people and in a severely economically depressed area this is all we need to know What

  • On An Overgrown Path: European youth orchestra Ravels in Walton
    words of L A Times music critic Mark Swed Saint John Passion for four soloists double chorus orchestra six percussionists and ORGAN ever receive a London performance following upon its 2000 Stuttgart world premiere If Antal Dorati or Mstislav Rostropovich were still the Music Directors of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington D C I believe that the work might have been performed in North America by now for the Kennedy Center has a fine organ as does the new Walt Disney Hall in Los Angeles and several other North American halls And many congratulations on the first anniversary of your superb site It is my loss that I only started reading it three months ago or so Thanks for the further reading links which are helping me slowly read your archive of postings 7 09 pm Pliable said Garth yes indeed Valery Gergiev and the Kirov performed Gubaidulina s St John Passion as part of a marathon two concert day in the 2002 Proms season The Passion was in the afternoon and the dessert course in the evening consisted of Prokofiev s Third Piano Concerto and Shostakovich s Fourth Symphony Quite a meal By the wonders of the Guardian s superb online review archive you can read more about that epic concert through this link For those that can receive BBC2 TV note that the whole of the Prom on 20th August including the Gubaidulina premiere is being broadcast live starting at 17 30h BST I m glad you find the if you like this post you ll like feature useful As I m currently getting on for 500 new readers every day it seemed a good way of giving exposure to some of the archived posts I have had complaints though that following the links is like a maze Some people have said they ve got completely lost within the blog and the only way out was to close it and start again Truly an overgrown path 8 15 pm Garth Trinkl said thanks very much pliable The Guardian review of the Kirov Mariinsky residency at the 2002 Proms which you kindly linked is very interesting I hadn t been aware that Ms Gubaidulina had composed a 2002 sequel to her 2000 St John Passion which she entitled St John Easter and which is performed together with the St John Passion I had been aware that the earlier work had set texts from both St John the Apostle as well as St John the Divine author of the Book of Revelations I also recall someone I wish I could recall who calling Ms Gubaidulina s libretto for the earlier St John Passion a brilliant work While the Guardian 2002 review isn t completely complimentary regarding the 2002 sequel I think that it can be recognized that the 2000 Passion is a superb accomplishment by a Tatar and Russian artist using Orthodox chant materials and working from a revived religious tradition which had previously frowned on the use of
