Zwilich’s well-known combination of tonal, melodic music with modes and modern harmonies tossed in for flavor are clearly on display here, but so too is Zuill Bailey’s cello. In fact, except for his second recording of the Bach Cello Suites, issued a few months ago, I can’t recall hearing any other recording by him that so perfectly captures his gorgeous, manicured tone. In fact, judging just by those two recordings, I would go out on a limb and say that his tone has actually grown in richness and depth of sound. He used to sound like Emanuel Feuermann; he now sounds like Mstislav Rostropovich.
- Gobi Desert Collective and Copal join the label with their track ‘Ambedo’, a darker release that maintains the fresh personality of the Art Vibes collective.
- Plato valued music in its ethically approved forms; his concern was primarily with the effects of music, and he therefore regarded it as a psychosociological phenomenon.
- And in this article, Looking at music and listening to art, written by Nicholas Chambers who is the Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary International Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
- Thus I hear this as a very carefully prepared and meticulously played performance of the symphony that only occasionally touches the raw nerve endings that Mahler put into it.
One online critic compared Abbado’s Mahler to Rattle’s by saying that the former was an optimist while the latter was a pessimist, and it is true that a certain amount of pessimism, or at least sadness, permeates this symphony . It does, however, pick up in intensity about two-thirds of the way through the movement. Zinn’s tenor sax, in fact, does this; he is not really extending the composition in his solos; but since they follow Witzel’s, they almost sound like further variations on the theme, which is not altogether a bad thing. GM Art & Music is delighted to welcome Latvian mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča for general worldwide management, only for opera.

Many cultures have art music traditions; in the Western world the term typically refers to Western classical music. YAM’s beautiful studio features some of Dallas’ best local yoga teachers, artists and musicians. YAM is a yoga studio, art gallery and music venue rolled into one cool space. Yoga Art Music or YAM, is a yoga studio with uplifting teachers and a down-to-earth vibe.
The history of music itself is largely an account of its adjunctive function in rituals and ceremonies of all kinds—religious, military, courtly—and in musical theatre. The Nocturnes are much shorter works than the Cartas Celestas as well as more rhythmic, although their rhythm is made up of complex meters. The exceptions are nocturnes Nos. 2 and 4, the former having a melody based on Beethoven’s “Moonlight” Sonata and No. 4 having a lovely, almost lullaby-like tune, which explains their having been previously recorded.
YAM was opened by lake highlands residents, Jen & Trey Johnson, with the goal to create a community-based space to help highlight amazing local yoga teachers, artists and musicians. The Bernard Osher Foundation Art, Music and Recreation Center offers material about the visual arts, performing arts, music, sports and recreation.

As early as the 1930s, artists attempted to cultivate ideas of “symphonic jazz”, taking it away from its perceived vernacular and black American roots. Following these developments, histories of popular music tend to marginalize jazz, partly because the reformulation of jazz in the art discourse has been so successful that many would not consider it a form of popular music. Steve Drown, MECA&D’s new Assistant Professor of Music, in the newly launched Bob Crewe Program in Art and Music, has been an independent recording engineer for the last 21 years and a professional musician for nearly 30. He has a BM in music production and engineering from Berklee College of Music and works as an engineer at The Studio, which provides state-of-the-art recording, digital editing and more in downtown Portland. Steve’s forte is making good musicians sound great—often in ways they don’t expect. He has worked with James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Ronnie Earl, Roy Scheider, Patty Larkin, Kate Schrock, and Ron Carter, among other musicians.

Boethius (c. 480–524), was well suited to the needs of the church; the conservative aspects of that philosophy, with its fear of innovation, were conducive to the maintenance of order. The role of music as accessory to words is nowhere more clearly illustrated than in the history of Christianity, where the primacy of the text has always been emphasized and sometimes, as in Roman Catholic doctrine, made an article of faith. In the varieties of plainchant, melody was used for textual illumination; the configurations of sound took their cue from the words.
The cello plays undulating, ambient figures to suggest a whale, then high held notes on the edge of its strings. This is as good a performance as the one by flautist Jan Krzeszowiec, pianist Malgorzata Zarębińska and cellist Marcin Misiak on the Dux label, and I think this recording even has more ambience around the instruments. After the 18th century, speculations upon the intrinsic nature of music became more numerous and profound. The elements necessary for a more comprehensive theory of its function and meaning became discernible. But philosophers whose views have been summarized thus far were not speaking as philosophers of music.
Boyd also has been in group exhibitions in places such as Cleveland and San Francisco. This will be Boyd’s first time since 2019 showcasing new bodies of work at 934 Gallery.
