  • On An Overgrown Path: Riding the electric highway...up to an overgrown path
    internet I have long periods where I just take it for granted then on a random cruise bump into new treasure Go and read Wordsandmusic Not because it says nice things about my blog But because its author and musician Freewheeling writes uncommonly well and has something worth saying And it is great that all those overgrown paths are leading somewhere If you enjoyed this post take an overgrown path to Brain Food 1 Posted by Pliable at Thursday August 18 2005 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest 3 comments Hucbald said Well you should get cudos OGP Can I call it that is one of the best most diverse and most inclusive music blogs I ve ever found I m trying to think of a better all around music blog but nothing comes to mind But what do I know I have no life 10 14 am Anonymous said Overgrown paths that readers can follow this blog certainly delivers what it promises Brilliantly written and results in ongoing conversations The only downside being that you have to have time on your hands to do it justice As once you get hooked on one story it leads along the information highway at a great pace Thanks Piable 11 11 am Pliable said Thanks for those comments much appreciated This post seems to have taken on a life of its own and is mirrored on several other sites I realise I am in error for not crediting the wonderful graphic that helps the whole thing work so well So let me retrospectively correct that The graphic is linked from the web site of Renderella Animation Studios They have some really nice work on their site and apologies for not crediting them in the original post 6 07 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 2009 367 December 22 November 23 October 33 September 7 August 35 July

  • On An Overgrown Path: Cure for Marin Alsop fatigue
    composer administrator and recording producer From my brief stays in London a decade ago I recall Ms Martinez s work with the Lontono ensemble and I also recall her championing orchestral and operatic works by Dame Ethel Smyth including the opera The Wreckers which is just about to celebrate its centenary I also own and highly admire Ms Martinez s CD of three short operas by Judith Weir and wish that her own opera on the life of Sister Aimee were commercially available Now how about a future post on Susanna Mälkki and her efforts on behalf of opera contemporary music and contemporary opera And I m sure other readers can think of other highly talented women conductors and musicians out there who do their work away from the big music business spotlights but who are deserving of more prominent guest conducting invitations as well as music directorships 9 09 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

    UK media predicts that further terrorist attacks in London are inevitable The night before Eduardo Hubert played the no show sonata in Norfolk the Danish National Girls Choir together with their compatriots in the Danish National Symphony Orchestra photo to right courageously decided that staying at home wasn t an option So they delighted us with the world premiere of Bent Sørensen s The Little Mermaid a t the Albert Hall Thankfully great musicians like them from all round the globe continue to perform every night close to the front line at the BBC Proms and in other London music venues Their selfless actions will guarantee that art will win over terror If you enjoyed this post take an overgrown path to Dresden 1945 London 2005 Posted by Pliable at Monday August 15 2005 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels bbc symphony orchestra eduardo hubert janos balint salle church terrorism 6 comments Pliable said See Tim Worstall s blog for a haiku headline take on this story 3 39 pm Kathy said Who would have thought you d see a day where someone felt Argentina was safer than England Anyway I think everyone should offer what they can and for musicians that means their performance This is the great tradition of the USO Also I cannot help but think of the musicians on the deck of the Titanic who played until well they couldn t play any longer I recently met a firefighter who lives in Indiana On September 11th he and his collegues drove straight through to New York and upon arrival got in and helped putting out fires and digging through rubble If firefighters can risk their lives the least musicians can do is offer comfort and stability They are fond of saying in the US that if you stop living your life the terrorists have won I seriously doubt whether the terrorists give a darn about an Argentinian performing or not but I do believe that we should continue living and what is life without music 5 11 pm Fairhaven Friend said Who can forget the Cellist of Sarajevo 11 47 am Pliable said Here is a link about the cellist of Sarajevo 12 59 pm Footprint said a most interesting article 8 31 pm Yifan said Meandered onto this page a good piece of writing you have here 7 51 am 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

    a chance to become familiar with it and like it or hate it more Although quite well known across the US blogs it is also worth giving a heads up for our many international readers to the very worthwhile Art of the States service run by WGBH Boston who also offer some worthwhile classical programming Art of the States offers on demand web streaming of classical music by US performers with a heavy emphasis on modern and lesser known repertoire There is a lot of added value here The works are all streamed complete the sound quality is very good and many are not available in commercial recordings A bonus are comprehensive programme notes and some good links The range of composers is very impressive on this serious music juke box from Adams to Zorn Currently there is a 19th Century south feature running majoring on musical life of the southern United States during the mid 19th century with lots of music files to support it If you haven t visited Art of the States you are missing out on one of the most useful serious music resources on the internet All these stations have been added to the side bar listing any other news of lateral thinking web music stations gratefully received via the comments facility at the end of this post If you enjoyed this post take An Overgrown Path to Elgar s other Enigma Posted by Pliable at Saturday August 13 2005 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels art of the states BBC Radio 3 harvard millenium of music rodney lister wgbh boston whrb 6 comments Clive said Classical Junk is excellent Thanks for pointing it out 1 14 pm sogaltino said you may be interested to know that Mr Davis has landed at the XM Satellite Radio VOX station as the programmer and i think everything else for that channel and excellent choices he makes 1 49 am Anonymous said Dave said On the Classical Junk web stream I program works of Howard Hanson quite often I try to play the complete cycle of his symphonies at least twice a year Hopefully a listener or two will take notice of this grossly underrated composer 12 38 pm John D said Though you re quite right to direct people s attention to the WHRB orgies I m not sure that they can be of the same standard as the BBC s recent Ludwigathon Certainly when I lived in the Boston area back in the early 1990s the WHRB marathons were a welcome change from the other classical music radio offerings in the area and Boston was better than almost anywhere else in the US but they weren t enough to assuage my longing for good old Radio 3 First of all the orgies weren t all classical music sometimes they would be obscure East Coast punk bands or something second the continuity announcements consisted of little but a recitation often

  • On An Overgrown Path: Who am I? - attacca
    from those pioneering Haydn recordings A real musician of stature who contrasts strongly with the current generation of media hyped superstar conductors who are scarcely out of their teens To finish with really obscure music trivia In the 1980 s we lived for six happy years in the village of Bridge of Allan in Scotland One of the delights was our house was on the edge of the University of Stirling campus The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra were regular visitors to the campus auditorium At that time their Music Director was a young Jerzy Maksymiuk whp produced some wonderful music Sir Alexander Gibson also visited I recall a stunning Sibelius 3 two days after the birth of our daughter But I have headed off down yet another overgrown path The bit of trivia was that the wife of the vet in Bridge of Allan was Antal Dorati s daughter Well done Fairhaven Friend on divining who am I And thanks to everyone who participated in a piece of harmless summer fun 10 15 am Garth Trinkl said Fairhaven Friend you may have a whole lot of Haydn thanks to Antal Dorati including his eight Haydn operas but I hope you pliable and other readers also have Dorati s recordings of Roberto Gerhard s Symphonies and Gerhard s setting of Albert Camus s The Plague as well as some of Dorati s own very powerful compositions Does anyone here know Dorati s Le Chemin Cantata for speaker contralto and bass baritone soloists chorus and orchestra based upon Paul Claudel s Le Chemin de la Croix from 1955 56 and ca 100 minutes his Rilke or Bhagavad gita settings or his major opera The Chosen 1984 which Dorati based upon his own libretto from Martin Buber s play Elija Dorati s third to last work his short drama Jesus or Barabbas based upon the Hungarian writer Frigyes Karinthy should still be available somewhere on BIS CD pliable does your library possess Dorati s second book For inner and outer peace a subject which interested him greatly during his last years and which was edited after his death in 1988 2 31 pm Pliable said Garth thanks for adding all that additional and valuable information on Antal Dorati I do not know his book For inner peace and happiness at all I notice that there is a rather good Dorati web site which mentions it and I will try to find a copy from the source mentioned there The examples of Dorati s graphic work on the site are worth looking at as well Truly a renaissance man and truly an overgrown path worth following 2 49 pm Anonymous said Dear Sir this book is still available The prize Euro 10 plus mailing 3 50 Euro to the UK With best regards Dr Peter Hauber IPPNW Concerts t online de 8 56 am Anonymous said Dear Sir I also would like to introduce another book with texts by Antal Doráti Concert Tour For

  • On An Overgrown Path: Pärt, Perotin and Plainchant pre-eminent at Proms
    following week s Proms appears every week on an overgrown path If you want to share an upcoming concert with a friend email the post to them using the envelope icon at the foot of the post If you enjoyed this post follow an overgrown path to New music feast at BBC Proms Posted by Pliable at Thursday August 11 2005 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest 4 comments Anonymous said Stupid American question Why are they called Proms In America as I m sure you know Proms are dances in High School I know that Prom is short for promontory which according to Dictionary com means A high ridge of land or rock jutting out into a body of water a headland Anatomy A projecting part So I m a little confused Is it just something that is and nobody knows why it s called what it is 7 23 pm Pliable said Not a stupid question at all The venue for the concerts is the Albert Hall in London This is an oval shaped auditorium which has a large flat floor space in front of the platform There are no seats in this area the audience stands This is the promenade from the French promener to walk There are no tickets for this area you can only get in by queuing on the day of the concert Admission is a ridiculously cheap 4 7US which allows you to stand within feet of top class orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic There is additional standing room at the top of the auditorium The total capacity for the two promenade areas is 1400 people There is a very strong tradition of promenading At the last night each year the promenaders place a laurel wreath on a bust of Sir Henry Wood the founder of the concerts Promenading is not for the faint hearted The arena can get very hot and airless and standing in close proximity to 1400 other music lovers for the duration of one of the Ring operas can be as much a test of endurance as a musical event Many many years ago I was at a televised Prom with Carmina Burana conducted by Andre Previn The TV lights created so much heat that the baritone soloist passed out and had to be carried off the stage 7 31 pm anon said If America weren t so anti French denizens thereof might know that proms was short for promenades Back in the States there are still pops concerts which are sometimes indoors and sometimes outdoors The British proms actually require a pretty high level of musical sophistication of its listeners unlike most American pops concerts which tend to be revenue generators and time fillers for unionized American orchestral musicians with full calendar schedules to be filled Once American pops concerts were pretty sophisticated and classy affairs but those days are generally long gone I think New York needs a Proms concept to
