  • On An Overgrown Path: Herr Mahler has been forced to withdraw
    that Grace Williams has agreed to take Herr Mahler s place at short notice with her Second Symphony The rest of the program is unchanged The BBC National Orchestra of Wales continues to champion Grace Williams music and performed her Sea Sketches at a BBC Prom as recently as 2008 The adventurousness of the BBC orchestras increases in direct proportion to their distance from the Radio 3 offices in London and I do wonder if the abrupt departure of the immensely talented Ilan Volkov from the post of chief conductor of the equally immensely talented BBC Scottish Sympony Orchestra was because he programmed Jonathan Harvey and Morton Feldman instead of his centrally allocated quota of Mahler and Shostakovich symphonies Now who was the New York Philharmonic s first woman conductor and who was the first woman to conduct a BBC Prom Also on Facebook and Twitter 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 February 10 2011 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels alex ross bbc proms BBC Radio 3 egon wellesz grace williams gustav mahler jonathan harvey new york philharmonic nicholas kenyon ralph vaughan williams 4 comments Frank H Little said There is also a notable trumpet concerto by Grace Williams 3 44 pm Pliable said A tweet from the Boston Symphony Orchestra reminds us they are playing a piece by the Korean female composer Unsuk Chin this weekend http twitter com BostonSymphony status 35766948327325696 http www boosey com composer Unsuk Chin 6 59 pm Pliable said Anna Joubert wrote via Facebook A wonderful concert today at the RCM in memory of Tod Handley Bax Tintagel and Robert Simpson s 5th Symphony http www facebook com overgrownpath 7 14 am Pliable said John Mclaughlin Williams commented via FaceBook Wish they had played Bax s 5th Symphony http www facebook com overgrownpath 7 16 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 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

  • On An Overgrown Path: Meetings with remarkable women
    very long listen for an audience drawn by the performers rather than the music But not a bit of it Like musical celebrations standing ovations are now everyday events But despite this the ovation received by the young performers by June Boyce Tillman and by Julian of Norwich is still newsworthy Which is a great note to end on But last night s performance was not a regional or local event June Boyce Tillman lives in London she is professor of applied music at the University of Winchester and her books have been translated into Dutch Japanese Portuguese and Polish Yet despite this I looked in vain at last night s performance for any of the mainstream music journalists who repeatedly pronounce on the future of music education from nearby London It seems a woman composer conductor travelling from Winchester to Norwich with a little help from a medieval mystic is not as newsworthy as a male conductor travelling from Venzuela to London with a lot of help from the commercial intermediary complex But we should not let the mainstream media s obsession with stereotypes spoil a unique musical concelebration One of Julian of Norwich s best known sayings which is set in Enfolded in Love sums up the message of last night s premiere perfectly All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well The remarkable musician who was the first woman to conduct the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra can be met here and there is another youth orchestra in action here My photos were taken under the almost impossible constraints now imposed by schools on photographing their pupils Although untypically distant I hope they convey something of the atmosphere in Norwich Cathedral while meeting the myriad and frankly sometimes baffling requirements of the schools and others All photos c On An Overgrown Path 2011 Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot Also on Facebook and Twitter Posted by Pliable at Wednesday February 09 2011 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels benjamin britten classical music feminism gustav mahler hildegard of bingen julian of norwich june boyce tillman t s eliot 2 comments Pliable said Googling after writing this post reveals a book titled Meeting with Remarkable Women Buddhist Teachers in America http www shambhala com html catalog items isbn 978 1 57062 474 2 cfm My headline is of course inspired by G I Gurdjieff s book http www gurdjieff org meetings htm 1 50 pm Lyle Sanford RMT said What a wonderful post For me it combines lots of new information with long standing concerns That coda with I looked in vain at last night s performance for any of the mainstream music journalists who repeatedly pronounce on the future of music education from nearby London was especially striking It s some kind of human trait to be able to get comfortably in a rut of received

  • On An Overgrown Path: Classical music and collective consciousness
    the end Synchronicity being what it is just got off the phone with Lama Tashi in Arunachal and he s doing well Another Jungian term you hint at with your title being so close to his collective unconscious is archetype My feeling is that great music which is widely appreciated must somehow evoke something archetypal in most listeners I m convinced of that in the non classical folk realm in the case of minor blues tunes like House of the Rising Sun and St James Infirmary Blues because performing those songs nearly always elicits a noticeably deep response from some listeners Your link to that old BBC story on the benefits of live music reminds me there hasn t been any follow up on that so far as I know One music therapy principle connected with your idea of transmission is that the first step is to play music which engages the client which matches his her mood as precisely as possible Then once the connection empathetic transmission is made the therapist can use that connection to help the client get to different places My sense is that a lot of classical musicians present their work as take it or leave it For them the canon trumps all whereas for the therapist connection transmission trumps all Thanks so very much for putting music therapy in such a fine light for your very high level readership 2 37 pm Pliable said Thanks Lyle Pauwels and Bergier invoke Jung frequently in The Morning of the Magicians Another writer they draw on is Charles Fort who postulated that the boundaries between science and pseudoscience are fuzzy Another fascinating path to explore http en wikipedia org wiki Charles Fort 4 38 pm Lyle Sanford RMT said I m sort of peripherally aware of Charles Fort because the Boing Boing folks regularly post on Fortean events and people By the way two points on that post on esoteric networks W B Yeats was involved with the Golden Dawn folks if my memory serves The other thing is that over the years I ve often been struck by how so many movements seem to start with just a few people but have wide cultural effects the Golden Dawn ferment being just one example Back in the 60 s there was a book called Anatomy of Revolution and one of the prerequisites was that the idea of revolution had to be in the air Maybe part of what lets transmission work is that both the idea of transmission is in the air and that there is something more specific in the air that wants transmitting 6 34 pm mrG said I do like where this conversation is going Nothing in the universe can resist the cumulative ardour of a sufficiently large number of enlightened minds working together in organised groups is easily a description of the atTUNEment described by both Teilhard de Chardin and the Sun Ra who wanted and tried many times to assemble an orchestra
