  • On An Overgrown Path: Artistic director takes public stand against dumbing-down
    years ago in Somerset County as a professional freelance orchestra called the Philharmonic Orchestra of New Jersey Over the years its mission evolved culminating in a name change in 2006 The mission of the Discovery Orchestra is now to teach the listening skills that help audiences emotionally connect to classical music and to achieve this they use an innovative mix of live performance small group work and interactive media programmes It is very good to find an artistic director and orchestra with the courage to take a public stand against the all pervasive dumbing down of classical music It is also good to find that there are still some a few musicians who are not afraid of the Big Bad Corporation Also on Facebook and Twitter Image credit KCET 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 June 24 2013 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Argo Discovery Orchestra George Marriner Maull king s college choir Saul Feinberg 2 comments Lyle Sanford RMT said George Maull writes If individuals can have an aha around whether they are actually listening or just hearing and begin to notice detail in music it tends to become a self fulfilling self rewarding activity That gets right to the point I was going to go back and make on that post of yours As you know I m a music therapist and the first order of business with a new client is to engage them in the process Once that happens you can take things in various directions but without that you re not going to go anywhere Mr Maull s specifying that aha moment for the classical listener as the beginning of the journey and more importantly working to get it to happen seems exactly right to me 1 05 pm www stephenpbrown com said As one who grew up being trained by Maestro Maull even before the PONJ was founded his expectation that we can all do if we choose to has instilled itself into my own professional practices Dumbing down is never an option and rarely am I disappointed by audiences and students who choose to engage in what we participate in together Both children and adults are much more capable and interested than we give them credit for and those that meet the challenges are rarely bored disillusioned or use complaining politics to expend their creative energies Of course this discussion is focused around live music making but to how much more of life do listening and Aha moments apply 3 01 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

  • On An Overgrown Path: How classical music reached half a million young people
    with the Juilliard Quartet around this time Was it perhaps a movement from that work Staying with non violence Benjamin Britten met Leonard Bernstein when the British composer attended the US premiere of Peter Grimes in Tanglewood in 1946 which Bernstein conducted Humphrey Burton takes up the story Within hours of the conclusion of the premiere Bernstein was playing boogie woogie at the cast party As Eric Crozier the English director remembered Bernstein was more interested in talking to Auden whom he revered than to Britten who was no great shakes as a party goer Reciprocally perhaps Britten did not warm to his flamboyant interpreter and never invited him to perform at the Aldeburgh Festival which he founded two years later But despite this Bernstein retained his affection for Britten s music In 1977 he recorded a Benjamin Britten In Memoriam album for CBS that is my copy of the original LP below which included the Interludes and Passacaglia from Peter Grimes And Bernstein s last concert given in Tanglewood with the Boston Symphony Orchestra just months before his death in 1990 included a performance of the Four Sea Interludes which Richard Dyer described as slow spacious colorful atmospheric and majestic Surprising connections abound one between Britten and Pete Seeger is revealed here and one between Bernstein and me here The atmospheric cover photo on the cover of the indispensable CD of Peter Paul and Mary s protest songs seen in the header image is the right venue but a different protest it was taken at the 1963 civil rights rally in Washington Pete Seeger In His Own Words was borrowed from the USAF Second Air Division Memorial Library in Norwich 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 Thursday June 20 2013 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels benjamin britten leonard bernstein new york philharmonic peter grimes peter paul mary Richie Havens Tom Paxton Vietnam War 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 New music from beneath the sands of Egypt Artistic director takes public stand against dumbi How new classical music audiences are seeing the l Excuse me but you are treading on an MP3 file What we need is a classical chart for challenging
