  • On An Overgrown Path: Claude Vivier - disorder, chances and momentary beauty
    and Prokofiev under one roof in one evening But my inner half empty glass questions whether one of Vivier s orchestral compositions Orion perhaps could not have been programmed in the main concert instead of the over exposed Shostakovich The rigid compartmentalisation of 100 Vivier and 100 20th century Russians is symptomatic of the trend towards health and safety programming no nasty surprises and no opportunity for serendipity to work its magic It is a trend we are seeing not just in the concert hall but also in radio and recording schedules Themed classical music is hot right now but is it really health and safety programming in disguise It is probably unfair and ungrateful to complain about the two Philharmonia concerts specifically and I hope to be at one of them no prizes for guessing which But in her immensely stimulating book Where the Heart Beats John Cage Zen Buddhism and the Inner Life of Artists Kay Larson quotes from one of Cage s public talks His words could equally have come from Claude Vivier and classical music programmers should take note of them Art should not be different from life with its accidents and chances and variety and disorder and momentary beauty More on Claude Vivier and the CD seen above in Pushing the classical envelope Also on Facebook and Twitter No complimentary tickets were involved in the preparation of this post 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 and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Thursday January 17 2013 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels alex ross claude vivier Kwame Ryan paul Griffiths philharmonia orchestra No comments 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 the doctor away I find no evil but causes and conditions aplenty Niche work

  • On An Overgrown Path: Goodbye HMV and hello digital era
    global reach of select artists and diminishing the markets for the rest Where once I could order physical CDs books films sheet music and have them shipped around the world albeit often at some expense to an Australian now I am blocked by vendor sites because my computer IP address or my credit address is in the wrong country Most recently I was thrice knocked back from buying a young artist s debut album because PayPal would not allow my delivery address despite the product being an digital download Only sites like Bandcamp which usually sell uncompressed music allow customers to buy from anywhere in the globe at a uniform price The price is also of consequence as Apple with its many dozens of separate iTunes stores can impose substantial mark up across the world has no economic reason to alter the hegemony As it fosters a culture of untagged compressed music that favours only headline names I would only shop there out of desperation Naturally there are forward thinking labels like Hyperion who sell their music uncompressed globally but they are in the minority I would say I m knocked back on digital purchases for about 3 albums per week because I m in the wrong location Video products are problematic on iTunes in a third way it s rare to be able to buy original language releases outside of the domestic language market For the uninitiated what the French call VO version originale does not equate to the domestic release as all text is translated to French not the original language So if you watch a movie with multiple languages quite common in war thrillers or epics like LOTR and The Hobbit then the additional languages will all be subtitled in French not say English 12 07 pm Pliable said In connection with the above comment it is worth noting the new Alia Vox release Erasmus Buying the CDs gives a password which allows the purchaser to download both high resolution and mp3 albums plus five language options for the texts Alia Vox aren t communicating this innovative bonus very clearly but it is a development worth keeping an eye on I ll ask the label for more information and will try to write more 12 19 pm irishwaterwayshistory com said The economics of one type of digital music streaming http marginalrevolution com marginalrevolution 2013 01 the new music royalties html utm source feedburner utm medium feed utm campaign Feed 3A marginalrevolution 2Ffeed 28Marginal Revolution 29 bjg 11 51 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

  • On An Overgrown Path: Goodbye to Berlin
    life deeper And I have turned on a few conductors to his works as well Kudos to you Pliable for keeping the flame of lesser known or under appreciated musicians burning long into the night By the way his Concerto for Wind Orchestra is recorded with the Espirit Orchestra under Alex Pauk but it is sadly unavailable Daniel Miller 7 01 pm Ed Brickell said McPhee s Concerto for Wind Orchestra is readily available for listening on MOG 9 13 pm Philip Amos said Far from the first time mention of a composer unknown to me in one your posts has sent me to the Naxos Music Library I shall be listening to quite a lot of McPhee today Bob for I found all the following in there CBC Records has issued a disc containing his Symphony No 2 Concerto for Wind Orchestra Transitions Tabuh Tabuhan and Nocturne A second CBC disc includes three more of McPhee s works plus works by composers influenced by him The Balinese Ceremonial Music in the performance by McPhee and Britten with other historical performances of Britten s works by Britten from 1941 44 has been reissued in a digital remastering on Naxos Classical Archives label Also on that label is a disc containing Tabuh Tabuhan and Carter s Minotaur Suite from a 1956 recording by Hanson and the Eastman Rochester SO But N B The Classical Archives label is not to be confused with Naxos Historical series The CA discs can only be streamed or downloaded The BCM is also on an NCA disc performed by Sonja and Shanti Sungkono and on a Divine Art disc performed by Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow The McPhee Britten performance is also included in a four disc set of historical performances of Britten s music on the Japanese label Documents which specializes in historical recordings The Chandos recording has already been mentioned But I was delighted also to see that a McPhee work though a brief excerpt is on Naxos Music for Kids CD 7 Those interested in concert programming much discussed here might take a look at that series for children for the contents of many discs is adventurous indeed As Daniel points out the CBC Pauk disc is no longer available but all these recordings can be streamed from the NML May I just say to Gavin that I did myself think his comment serious The problem is that the written word often only expresses mood in the grammatical sense The answer to the problem is to add a smiley If you re like me it takes a little getting used to these things but sometimes they re necessary to avoid misunderstanding 10 31 am Daniel M said Oh I am so pleased to see my earlier mentioned recording available for streaming I remember mentioning this work to a wind conductor colleague who then wrote about it for one of his Doctoral comprehensive exams I hope he programs it sometime just to keep pieces

    and remember this is basically a recorded performance And then there is the question of how with the orchestra recorded from the earlier Festival concerts the voices are going to be removed from the concert performance at which the recorded orchestral track is being captured Or will they remain in case the wind off the North Sea is too strong for the amplified voives on the beach If this was a free event it would be a different matter But 75 to sit on a bench 4 37 pm M Hatch said Hi guys For your information an entirely new recording of the orchestra alone will be specially recorded and the singers WILL be singing live Best wishes Mike Hatch 10 56 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 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 the doctor away I find
