  • On An Overgrown Path: The practice of engaged classical music
    t know what the definition of a genius is Therefore I cannot say if Glazunov is one or not As above I appreciate and have been moved by his music and that is what matters for me 4 28 pm JMW said I ve been very moved by his music and studying Glazunov s scores has given me an acquaintance with the material that allows me to say without hesitation that he was a genius Other s mileage with him may differ 9 49 pm Philip Amos said I don t think Glazunov was a genius but nor do I care he furnished the rooms of our minds with some marvellous music Genius itself does not much puzzle me and I am inclined to see it as akin to compulsion It is in looking at the unquestionably great composers that we may boggle variously at their vast output early deaths circumstances in which they worked Sometimes it defies comprehension as in Constanze Mozart s journal entry describing Mozart composing the Magic Flute through the night drinking wine the while and asking Constanze to read to him as he worked because he was getting bored There is the essence of musical genius music as a genetic component Such as he Bach Beethoven Schubert had teachers but none were taught to compose the genius for that was congenital Lesser composers surely were taught the art and had they not been may never have composed at all Some of their music may be wonderful but they are not among the geniuses 10 56 am jerome langguth said The genius that interests me in not that of the composer of towering means and reputation but that of the listener who hears the flash of the ineffable wherever it might occur That is why I read this blog 11 33 am Philip Amos said I cannot conceive of what a flash of the ineffable in the context of work of music might be All classical music is per se ineffable Music with a flash of the ineffable would presumably in its other parts be expressible in words What it may rather contain is flashes of what Conrad called the magical suggestiveness of music and perhaps in that we come closest to discerning meaning though Stravinsky Beecham Nietzsche et al thought it has no meaning at all I think it does but ineffable meaning and most akin to silence 5 51 pm jerome langguth said Forgive the inexact metaphor in my earlier response Conrad s magical suggestiveness works fine for me My choice of words comes from the philosopher Vladimir Jankélévitch s Music and the Ineffable in which he writes of the elusiveness and bewitching power of Charm the ineffable in music My real purpose was to express appreciation for the blog author s expert guidance in finding very worthwhile music by non genius composers such as Magnard who I just now found mentioned in my copy of Jankélévitch 7 13 pm Lyle Sanford RMT said Responding to Philip Amos Like you I have had a copy of Sentics for years and like you have been baffled as to why it and Clynes musical work in general he sure hung around with some heavy hitters has not gained more acceptance I ve always felt part of the reason music moves us is that it encodes physical gestures which can have emotional content If you don t know about mirror neurons you might find them interesting When we see someone making a gesture part of our brain reacts as if we were making it ourselves My feeling is that for music of any kind to reach someone it s gestural content needs to be something the audience can recognize and want to connect with Responding to Pliable s more general point One thing to consider about the positive effects music can have is if that s true negative effects are also possible Various people are going to find wildly disparate pieces of music life affirming and it s totally a different strokes for different folks proposition What s positive for some will be negative for others and from a Buddhist perspective with no permanently fixed identity something that s works for us at one point in our lives may well not work at others and visa versa 8 51 pm Philip Amos said Jerome I understood your main point very well and couldn t agree more Of late Bob has had me making notes almost daily and sending me off to the Naxos Music Library in search of composers new to me two recent ones have been glorious discoveries Surely many of us are grateful for that And I m grateful to you for the mention of VJ s writings which I shall seek out Lyle I m delighted to find your comment here you went through my mind as I was writing my first comment I must read about mirror neurons Before a physical disaster put an end to it when I was 15 I was set for a career as a conductor and I did conduct under the tutelage of Emil Spira Webern s last private pupil I think that explains why to this day it is impossible for me to keep my arms still when listening to certain works Indeed just recently listening to Barbirolli s glorious recording of the Sibelius 2nd halfway thought the last movement I had a compulsion to stand and conduct purely to see if I had so absorbed JB s conception that my gestures would at this point mirror his not visually of course but in that my gestures were absolutely at one with the music if that makes any sense And they were I rather shocked myself And so Lyle I agree with you totally re gestural content which must bring to mind music and movement therapy for in particular children with conditions such as autism cerebral palsy Down s Asperger s etc something I ve done a

  • On An Overgrown Path: Classical music as an antiques roadshow
    Queipo de Llano s note for the new CD seen above of his twenty five four part fugues played by Ensemble Fisarchi on the Spanish Enchiriadis label Despite the reactionary rhetoric Queipo de Llano claims Elgar as a neoclassical composer and cites Eric Whitacre as an exceptional landmark in contemporary music the results are really quite appealing in a neo baroque Vivaldi ish kind of way there is an audio sample here With timings ranging between 1 54 to 3 33 the twenty five fugues are a godsend to the classical radio presenters among my readers who want tasteful fillers to replace the ubiquitous Slavonic Dances and Debussy Preludes Pablo Queipo de Llano s Fugas are pleasant enough in small doses But like Antiques Roadshow concerts and Katie Derham they are most definitely not recommended in large doses Also on Facebook and Twitter No review samples were used in the preparation of this review 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 etc to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Thursday January 24 2013 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels BBC Radio 3 edward elgar enchiriadis eric whitacre katie derham Lars Tharp Pablo Queipo de Llano Vivladi 1 comment Pliable said While writing this I noticed that Pablo Queipo de Llano shares his surname with Gonzalo Queipo de Llano 1875 1951 who was commander of the Nationalist Army of the South under Franco in the Spanish Civil War Now a reader has also spotted the shared surname Is it a coincidence of surnames Or is there a link How common is the surname Queipo de Llano in Spain Can any Spanish or other readers help http en wikipedia org wiki Gonzalo Queipo de Llano 8 50 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 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 The buildings in which you play are seen as forbid The practice of engaged classical music Remixing Japan Do classical music s big new ideas have real subst Where late the sweet birds sang Classical music as an antiques roadshow Before mobile ringtones there were air raids Why louder classical music is better classical mus Who needs a conductor A symphony a day keeps
