  • On An Overgrown Path: A musician is also a person
    Lefebvre over his decisions to consecrate bishops without Vatican approval This split brought reconciliation with the Vatican and today Pope Benedict XVI is considered to be an ally of the two monasteries at Le Barroux There are many who will say none of this is relevant to a CD released in 2010 But I hold a different view Paul Touvier s high profile trial took place just sixteen years ago which is within the lifetime of the youngest nuns at Notre Dame de l Annonciation Yes the monastic community there had distanced itself from Archbishop Lefebvre six years previously But today the community at Le Barroux remains firmly traditionalist Catholic and holds views on topics such as homosexuality and religious inclusivity that are at variance with those commonly accepted elsewhere In small villages in France where there are traditionalist Catholic monasteries the block voting of the monastics can be an important factor in elections During the second round of the 2010 regional elections in the commune of Le Barroux far right National Front party leader Jean Marie Le Pen came a close third with 30 of the 339 votes This video shows another National Front politician Bruno Gollnisch speaking in Le Barroux village in October 2010 in support of Le Pen Gollnisch who is part of the Catholic faction within the National Front has previously been tried and acquitted on appeal for contesting the existence of crimes against humanity and he publicly supports the French Government s move to deport the Roma By signing a deal with Decca and by becoming internet and Facebook properties the nuns of Notre Dame de l Annonciation at Le Barroux have held themselves up to public scrutiny As part of this their music making needs to be put into a wider context than is offered by Decca s carefully orchestrated PR campaign and the resulting fawning mainstream media coverage I am not suggesting that the nuns glorious CD should be boycotted because of their traditionalist Catholic views In fact I hope many people buy the disc and go on to appreciate both the riches of sacred music and the infinite possibilities of the spiritual realm But On An Overgrown Path has always followed Pablo Casals credo that a musician is also a person By choosing to become media properties the nuns at the Abbaye de Notre Dame de l Annonciation are now people as well as contemplatives Which is why I have written this article An update on this story here Also on Facebook and Twitter Header photo is c On An Overgrown Path 2010 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 Tuesday November 09 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels avignon

  • On An Overgrown Path: Classical music tries Californian envangelism
    judge for yourself the videos are long but worth watching Israeli conductor Itay Talgam on how to lead like a conductor complete with interesting footage of various maestros David Byrne on how architecture helped music evolve complete with a mention of Alex Ross Benjamin Zander on music passion and Chopin For me the highlights of a fascinating day at TEDx Aldeburgh were not the recorded talks or even the live talks by 1990s rock stars who have found a lucrative second wind combining technically dazzling light shows with mind numbingly banal muzak No the real stars were the presenters who made live music This post is already starting to run slowly due to its video payload so I will add links rather than embed more videos Sarah Nicolls played her extraordinary inside out piano and programmer Tim Exile contributed an improvised live set see them both here Peter Gregson astounded with his electric cello and Imogen Heap s final set made the timing overrun worthwhile But the real star was 14 year old percussionist Matthew Farthing Another presenter made sure we knew he had flown in from Los Angeles By contrast Matthew who is a beneficiary of the admirable Aldeburgh young musician scheme and has just been selected for the National Youth Orchestra came up the road from Ipswich to modestly show us how classical music transcends Californian style evangelism TEDx Aldeburgh was definitely a worthwhile experiment and we will be there again for Peter Gregson s ambisonic set with Tod Machover on Friday evening Nov 12 But in the end the event showed that Aldeburgh does live music better than California does live speakers Perhaps Aldeburgh ought to be spreading its ideas around the West Coast rather than vice versa Also on Facebook and Twitter I paid for my 20 TEDx ticket Header photo is c On An Overgrown Path 2010 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 Monday November 08 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels aldeburgh music Benjamin Zander classical music David Byrne imogen heap Itay Talgam matthew farthing nassim taleb peter gregson ted tim exile 2 comments Pliable said During TEDx Aldeburgh we had to sit through 5 minutes 27 seconds of this video rendition of Stand by me which presumably had failed to make the cut for a Coca Cola TV commercial http www youtube com watch v Us TVg40ExM 1 51 pm sfmike said Hey don t blame California for these frauds That s like blaming Wales for Katherine Jenkins 6 44 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

  • On An Overgrown Path: Who wears the trousers in classical music?
    long ceased to have any real relevance to classical music This is true of course but how is it an explanation of the maleness of the magazine s readership 4 19 pm Pliable said This is true of course but how is it an explanation of the maleness of the magazine s readership What I was trying to communicate VP was that the Gramophone readership is now just an unrepresentative niche In fact Jessica s theory is most probably right The Gramophone now caters very largely for record collecting geeks and they are almost all male It would be interesting to see the readership demographics for other periodicals such as BBC Music Magazine But in the end these print publications are just dinosaurs Online is where it is happening And what is interesting is that at least two of the comments here come from very knowledgeable ladies So no male bias problems here 4 45 pm vp said It may also be relevant that the reviewers of Gramophone seem to be disproportionately male I don t know how one gets invited to become a reviewer but Its easy to imagine a self perpetuating male clique If one looks at for example the newsgroup rec music classical recordings the posters are predominantly male but there are also some very prominent female posters I certainly agree that online is where it s at 5 56 pm Pliable said VP your point that classical music reviewers and not just for the Gramophone are disproportionately male is an important one and deserves further development 6 23 pm ian said Likewise another thing to note is that the reviews in Gramophone though they are nicer now than they used to be as far as one can tell from the near impossible to search archive and e g classicstoday tend to be quite nasty sometimes in arbitrary ways The reviewers on Building a Library on Radio 3 are also overwhelmingly male if one checks the archive of recommendations 11 06 pm Elaine Fine said I got invited to write for the American Record Guide unintentionally Back in 1993 I wrote a long letter to the editor responding to points I disagreed with in one of his point of view articles His response to me was Too bad you can t write for us to which I responded Is there any reason why I can t A week later he sent me a style sheet and a stack of recordings When the ARG was looking for a specialist in early music I recommended someone That s the way it happens There s no self perpetuating male clique there Perhaps if more women took the initiative to make the importance of their opinions about music known we would have more critical voices from women Consider that until only a handful of years ago most of the classical radio announcers were male 1 09 am Pliable said It is interesting and illuminating how a consensus has emerged from a
