  • On An Overgrown Path: Remembering a forgotten maestro
    muti ulster orchestra vagn holmoe 8 comments Pliable said Email received Is there a decent discography of Maurice Miles Anybody who specializes in Butterworth is special in and of themselves Here is an English composer who had he lived would have eclipsed them all Cheers David Cavlovic There are two Butterworths David There is George Butterworth who died in the First World War http en wikipedia org wiki George Butterworth And the little known Arthur Butterworth no relation who is still alive and whose music Maurice Miles performed http www musicweb international com buttera index htm Confusing isn t it 10 10 pm Drew80 said OK Pliable I must ask were the Chicago Symphony concerts in London truly that bad Of course I did not hear them I DID read the London reviews which I would term mixed The CSO received excellent notices on the continent immediately prior to the London appearances At the conclusion of the recent tour the members of the CSO were practically prepared to lie down and die for Riccardo Muti so impressed were they with him So again I ask were the London concerts truly that bad Myself I would much prefer that the CSO continue to court Chailly whom I much prefer over Muti However Muti is hardly the worst conductor in the world I am simply curious as you no doubt can tell Andrew 10 29 pm Pliable said Andrew I didn t say Muti s performances were that bad But I did say that they lacked the beauty of that VW5 from Ulster The CSO under Muti are a very slick band But I m afraid slick bands don t do it for me anymore Anthony Holden summed it up in the Observer Even from such fine players under this suavest of maestros the performance was immaculate rather than overwhelming and diminished by this absurd programming http music guardian co uk live story 0 2190660 00 html 10 59 pm Drew80 said I thank you Pliable Yes Muti is often slick My personal problem with Muti is that he is unable to develop and maintain a beautiful orchestral sound which makes him a poor candidate to be permanent conductor of an orchestra with special sound qualities The sound picture Muti carries in his head is not apt I believe for much of the orchestral repertory Muti seeks brilliance above all else and often he obtains it at the expense of other qualities I thank you again for your response Andrew 11 08 pm Pliable said I guess this post has proved its point We are back discussing star system conductors and orchestras 8 49 am eschissel said A performance under the same forces as the premiere of Holmboe s 7th possibly the premiere but from the same year at least was broadcast over Swedish Radio P2 a few years ago I was able to hear it in my opinion a wonderful performance not very well preserved but very glad I did Much

  • On An Overgrown Path: Now playing - the Hallelujah Chorus
    reasonably full houses and less than representative samplings of persons under the age of 50 much less audiences for Birtwistle s Earth Dances Panic or The Minotaur to cite a composer largely overlooked by Mr Ross at least according to his book s fine print index I do see that Mr Ross s mention of Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas s in vain on the Kairos label has driven that work into the nether reaches of back order with Amazon s one copy from a secondary dealer being offered at three times the fair market value for the newer work Perhaps tens of thousands of copies of Mr Haas s spectralist 65 minute or 75 minute in vain are being downloaded from somewhere unknown to me or are being distributed in pirated copies In sum I believe that I will find that I learned more about the recent classical musical art form from the final rather speculative pages of Paul Griffith s A Concise History of Western Music recommended by pliable than from the ending pages of either Richard Taruskin s monumental Oxford History of Western Music or Alex Ross s The Rest is Noise 2 53 pm Elaine Fine said The best book I have read concerning 20th century music is Peter Conrad s Modern Times Modern Places published in 1998 while the century was still going The popularity of Ross book and the excellent promotion that it has had so far especially in the wake of Lebrecht s utter failure and defeat might not actually get people to go to concerts but it might get some smart people in their thirties who have never had any kind of worthwhile musical education to buy a few recordings of 20th century music A few might even listen to them 8 48 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 30

  • On An Overgrown Path: Lebrecht is right - Naxos is not in same league
    operas performed by the leading singers of the day that would be well served by being released by NDR or whomever if they could work through the maze of rights issues 8 26 pm Pliable said Henry you are right When I was at Aldeburgh doing my recent interview I asked Jonathan Reekie about their recorded archive Aldeburgh have a professional sound engineer who records practically every performance there for their own archive It must be a treasure trove But the complexities of artist releases deter them from exploiting it commercially http theovergrownpath blogspot com 2007 10 aldeburgh has always been about new html 9 07 pm sphaerenklang said Since when can or should we expect products that retail for vastly difference prices a factor of 3 or 4 to have the same level of quality Still some Naxos recordings are excellent That is what keeps them alive And for a lot of repertoire consider Havergal Brian and Rawsthorne for two without going beyond the bounds of Less Famous 20th Century English Symphonists there is basically nowhere else to go except Naxos It is just a different business model which has strengths and weaknesses compared to the old EMI model And no one would claim that every old EMI recording is worth keeping 4 30 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 30 May 42 April 39 March 41 February 47 January 48 2008 476 December 38 November 40 October 57 September 39 August 36 July 42 June 9 May 54 April 41 March 44 February 30 January 46 2007 572 December 43 November 65 October 55 Words on twentieth century music Berlin Philharmonic s first woman conductor Staying at home with Couperin More on Norman s pulped fiction More than Player Piano Studies The sound of silence The art of the bad review Give me digital but not
