  • On An Overgrown Path: Don't say you were not warned
    might have tried to get Dudamel or even Lang Lang surely the latter is going to start waving the stick soon It is a lot easier to emote and posture when conducting than when playing a piano When Chailly was at the Concertgebouw I was amazed how much better the orchestra sounded under its visiting conductors such as Davis Haitink and Levine Similarly the LSO alwsys sounded better under Davis Haitink Previn than it did under Gergiev to my ears anyway I wondered at the time whether the appointment of Gergiev was because the orchestra did not want to work with a chief conductor who would spend too much time with them Rattle looks like he might be another occasional chief conductor rather than a real influence Then of course we can speculate about the role of the City Corporation However you look at Gergiev and then Rattle it just does not smell right somehow 7 28 pm Pliable said It just does not smell right somehow http www overgrownpath com 2015 09 why audience growth at all costs is html 9 04 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 There are no quick wins Contemporary Greek music loses its baggage Do musicians play music or does music play musici Why opera tickets are perceived as expensive The madness of crowds Do you believe in magic When the hype is justified When the hype hits the fan The name of the game is Sir Simon says Where has all the idealism gone Suicide is painless A real artist cannot accept the world the way it i What price

  • On An Overgrown Path: Does Facebook really have to be this dire?
    by Barry Phillips of the Hindu Bhajan devotional song Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram Given the celebrity that Ravi Shankar achieved in both the East and West it is puzzling that the work of East Meets West Music is so far off the social media radar The label s crowning achievement to date has been the release of Ravi Shankar The Living Room Sessions Parts 1 and 2 These Living Room Sessions capture exquisite valedictory performances by the 91 year old sitar master at his home in Encinitas California their producer was Barry Phillips with the first album quite rightly winning a Grammy in 2013 and the second earning a Grammy nomination a year later But also noteworthy is Ashwini Bhide Deshpande s recording of six vocal ragas by Ravi Shankar on a CD titled Arghyam The Offering Although Ravi Shankar converted the West to Indian instrumental music he did not manage to do the same for the higher art of Indian vocal music However the vocal tradition had a significant impact on contemporary Western music as it influenced the minimalist pioneers La Monte Young and Terry Riley All the releases from East Meets West Music deserve to reach a wide audience If this post brings a new discovery to just one reader it will have done its job And if John Luther Adams does not unfriend me that will be even better No review samples were used in this post Header graphic comes from Facebook page of Classical Music Humor No specific criticism is intended of this Facebook page it simply provides a relevant graphic 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 Also on Facebook and Twitter Posted by Pliable at Wednesday October 07 2015 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Ashwini Bhide Deshpande Barry Phillips george harrison India Jacob Silverman John Luther Adams jonathan harvey Joyce Didonato la monte young lou harrison terry riley 3 comments Dave MacD said I don t think it s fair to blame Facebook for JLA s social media posting habits If you don t like the posts unfollow I subscribe to your blog via RSS because I like what you write If that changes I ll unsubscribe It s not complicated but it does require the content consumer to take more responsibility than in an age of more centralized media control 8 14 pm Pliable said Sorry if I didn t make myself clear Dave I was not blaming Facebook in fact I make the point that social media offers a powerful free if the cost of losing control of personal data is ignored communication platform for classical music The point I was hoping to make is that given the potential of social media it is a shame that its use is being limited to obsessive self promotion Yes I and

  • On An Overgrown Path: A musician supreme
    Philip Amos said Just a word of thanks Bob Your post about George Onslow sent me to the NML and I m now well into listening not just to his string quartets which I listened to in the Ruggieri performances stunning but also symphonies piano trios sextets quintets nonet for various combinations three of the string quintets in performances led by Anner Bylsma cello sonatas I find that there is much to be said for listening to each work twice in one sitting first absorbing the work as an integral whole the second concentrating on the lower registers for what you say about his writing of bass lines is so very true In that regard hearing the cello in the Ruggieri performances is a good place to start and put the ears on the alert If anyone doubts the enormous importance of the bass line I would say only that without it there would be no Bach Chaconne Frightening thought I have a way to go even with the small sampling of his vast output I have available to me but I am inclined to think that this is great music And so I thank you for alerting me to Onslow I m taking a break from him at present for your post on Coltrane so roused my curiosity I could not wait to give his music a far more intense listening than I ve given it before This is a musical arena in which I have much to learn Two posts within three days and you ve given me a cornucopia of music to listen to and think about and I stress those last two words though I ll not explain why at this point Many will know what I m getting at anyway 2 13 pm Pliable said Thanks Philip George Onslow s String Quintet Op 38 is a real gem 2 36 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 There are no quick wins Contemporary Greek music loses its baggage Do musicians play music or does music play musici Why opera tickets are perceived as expensive The madness of crowds Do you believe in magic When the hype is justified When the hype hits the fan The name of the game is Sir Simon says Where has all the idealism gone Suicide is painless A real artist cannot accept the world the way it i What price classical music s celebrity culture Making settled things strange Don t say you were not warned What is a celebrity Analogue man Does Facebook really have to be this dire A musician supreme Many dangers hedge around the unfortunate composer How not to stand out In praise of the unspectacular Why Western music September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February

  • On An Overgrown Path: How not to stand out
    outweighed many times over by non musical factors Or in other words you don t just need to be a fine musician you must also know how to sell yourself Viviane Niaux s essay is published in the documentation for the first in an outstanding series of recordings of George Onslow s string quartets made by Quatuor Ruggieri This young and immensely alented quartet is an offshoot from Les Talens Lyriques founded by Christophe Rousset In an interview discussing the differences between Western and Eastern music Zubin Mehta explained how in classical music especially the Viennese school the bass line is extremely important because in the Western tradition unlike in the East the music is written vertically As a cellist Onslow wrote superbly for the lower registers and his skill is emphasised by the Quatuor Ruggieri s use of gut strings audio sample via this link video via this link The overlooked importance of the bass line is relevant to previous discussions of should classical music turn up the bass of how standard hall acoustics need to be rethought of the preference for headphone listening and most importantly the changing sonic expectations of new audiences The Quatuor Ruggieri s interpretations of George Onslow s Quartets are being issued by the small and independent French Agogique label Two discs are currently available You only need to listen for a few minutes to appreciate that Onslow s music is scandalously neglected in addition the performaces are superb the discs are beautifully presented with excellent documentation and the sound particularly in Quartets op 8 no 1 3 and op 10 no 3 recorded in the Church of Sainte Pierre rue Manin Paris is demonstration quality It is quite ridiculous that musicians are judged by their ability to sell themselves rather than their ability to make music Not only is George Onslow neglected but I have not seen a single mention of the outstanding advocacy of his music by the Quatuor Ruggieri in the copious online outpourings of the corporate centric digital commentariat As has been pointed out here before classical music s big opportunity is to expand the appetite of its current audience So to misquote Carl Nielsen give us something else give us something new indeed for Heaven s sake give us rather the bad and let us feel that we are still alive instead of constantly going around in deedless admiration for those who know how to sell themselves No review samples used in this post Any copyrighted material is included as fair use for critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Also on Facebook and Twitter Posted by Pliable at Sunday October 04 2015 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Christophe Rousset George Obslow Quatuor Ruggieri Rob Yeung Vivianne Niaux zubin mehta No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading
