  • On An Overgrown Path: A radical traditionalist
    organisation that was later found to be CIA funded But for a radical traditionalist Elliott Carter has had a remarkable impact on contemporary music His most notable innovations which we will hear in tonight s concert revolve around changes of metre and now I am now going to ask Pierre Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich to help us understand how Carter manipulates musical time This was my introduction to last night s Britten Sinfonia event before their concert of Haydn Eliott Carter and Mozart in Norwich The programme of recessional music proved that if you have faith the crowd will follow you and 43 minutes of Carter s music attracted an audience of 400 although for a university city with a high profile music department there were disappointingly few young faces among them Lots of young faces in the band though but my wife did observe that Elliott Carter s music is clearly more masculine than Osvaldo Golijov s as the female male ratio among the musicians swung from 80 20 at the recent Britten Sinfonia Eight Seasons concert to 64 36 for Elliott Carter There was a fascinating example of old meets new in Carter s Inner Song for solo oboe Nicholas Daniel used a high tech digital music stand from MusicReader but needed a human page turner to push the buttons Speaking of technology I have previously written in praise of the Theatre Royal Norwich s CARMEN digital sound enhancement system But there was an unfortunate intermittent low frequency intrusion at last night s concert was it a malfunction in the technology But just a minor reservation and the music and performance were gorgeous with Pierre Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich behaving like angels in the pre concert event The London performance of the Haydn Elliott Carter and Mozart programme tonight Nov 7 is being recorded for later broadcast by BBC Radio 3 There is a further performance in Cambridge on Nov 9 This is the future of classical music Listen to a podcast of my discussion with Pierre Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich here My sources included Elliott Carter A Centennial Portrait in Letters and Documents published jointly by the Paul Sacher Foundation and Boydell Press My header image which shows Elliott Carter with Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein at the recording of Carter s Concerto for Orchestra in New York s Philharmonic Hall in 1970 comes from this inspirational book as does the lower image A Concise History of Western Music by Paul Griffiths who was librettist for Carter s 1999 opera What Next Stephen Heinemann s excellent sleeve notes for the CD Early Chamber Music of Elliott Carter on Cedille Records Copies Elliot Carter A Centennial Portrait in Letters and Documents and A Concise History of Western Music were supplied for review at my request Two concert tickets were made available by the Briten Sinfonia for chairing the pre concert event My CD of Early Chamber Music of Elliot Carter was bought online Any copyrighted

  • On An Overgrown Path: Are you connected?
    always enjoyed writing my occasional comments to this my very favourite music blog And now I can t because I don t have a profile online Fair comment Philip In more than five years and as of today 2179 articles I have only had to restrict comments on a handful of posts Comments from readers that make a contribution to On An Overgrown Path are more than welcome Those that pursue other agendas behind a cloak of anonymity are not welcome The monitoring software on the site allows me to see if a visitor has been on the site before where they come from how long they stay and what they are searching for With thousands of visitors every day the log data is rarely viewed But yesterday one particular visitor stuck out like a sore thumb by their IP address by their unusual search pattern and by the fact that they created an anonymous profile with the specific intent of commenting on this article Which I rejected Censorship Yes and no If there was no censorship on comments there would be many many comments purporting to say something nice about articles but in fact selling online piano tutors and all sorts of other things via a link at the foot of the comment So comments are already censored So why did I not simply reject yesterday s anonymous comment Because if I had done so I would probably have been accused of clandestine censorship Reader s comments are taken seriously On An Overgrown Path Often they correct my errors which are always acknowledged This is important as many of my articles are linked from Wikipedia and other sources and some are used by colleges for course work and I do not always get things right Readers comments are also used to start new threads often the most interesting on the blog On An Overgrown Path takes a lot of time to write and maintain which is my choice But the amount of time spent checking and responding to comments and also emails usually promoting the interests of the sender that are not published is becoming a real problem I cannot speak for Alex Ross But I am pretty sure the reason why Alex does not allow any comments on either of his blogs is the time that is involved in managing them I am committed to allowing comments in the future unless abuse of that facility makes it impossible Comments from readers without a profile will continue to be posted on other articles unless stated otherwise Fortunately the music of André Jolivet and other arcane topics seems to hold less appeal for the phantom commenters 10 34 am Pliable said A much more succinct summary of my position occurs to me I agree and comply with the FCC ruling that bloggers should reveal conflicts of interest http www overgrownpath com 2009 10 bloggers must disclose payments for html And similarly comment posters should reveal conflicts of interest 11 30

  • On An Overgrown Path: Globalisation is nothing new
    and secular medieval French songs by Guillaume de Machaut and others are performed not in conventional bel canto style but off the voice using just one or two female voices Belinda Sykes and Jennie Cassidy and accompanied by Gothic harp and mey a traditional reed instrument from Mesopotamia The use of the mey has some historic justification as in 725 the forces of Moorish al Andalus captured Autun This marked the easterly limit of the great Islamic conquest of Europe from al Andalus and in 732 the army of the Umayyad Caliphate was defeated by the Burgundian and Frankish forces at the Battle of Tours following which the Moorish invaders started a slow withdrawal westwards By taking a multi cultural viewpoint Douce Dame Debonaire provides a fresh perspective on the songs of the troubadours and trouvèresto and reminds us that in music at least globalisation is nothing new Full marks to Belinda Sykes and Joglaresa for this thought provoking new CD which looks far beyond geographic religous and cultural boundaries to allow us to hear these songs for what they really are music without borders Now bring on the medieval avant garde A review copy of Douce Dame Debonaire was supplied at my request All photos were taken by me at Autun Cathedral and are c On An Overgrown Path More photos of Gislebertus stunning Autun carvery here Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Sunday November 01 2009 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels al andalus david munrow early music france islam 2 comments Pliable said I should have given a credit to engineer Michael Ponder for the excellent and refreshingly punchy sound on this disc captured in St Silas the Martyr Church London http www saintsilas org uk section 97 11 54 am Pliable said It s good to see Belinda Sykes mentioning Thomas Binkley s overlooked Studio der frühen Musik in the publicity material for Douce Dame Debonaire http www overgrownpath com 2008 05 following early music path html 5 02 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
