Then Witzel enters, bringing compositional order to the proceedings, and is again superb . Ho’s finest contribution to this album, however, is in his providing consistently swinging and appropriate bass lines in the left hand, supplanting the use of either a string or electric bassist. He’s so good at this that, at first, I re-read the album cover to make sure that there wasn’t a bassist in the group. And he keeps this up even when he himself is soloing with the right hand, showing that he is a fine musician if not a soloist on Witzel’s or Zinn’s level. This is a rather strange album, occupying a somewhat awkward spot between entertainment and art. Although most of these arrangements appear to be heads, Witzel and his talented group have a good read on each other’s musical ideas and bring them to fruition.

This year’s contributors included Dan Herro, Emma …

Now mind you, I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with Svedlund’s performance. All music is open to interpretation, and unless it is insensitive, there’s nothing wrong with a straightforward reading of the score, particularly in this early stage of Weinberg’s career when his angst was not so keenly felt. What Gražinytė-Tyla does is to “preview” the growing sadness in his music through her interpretation. Or maybe it’s just a matter of Rudolph codifying already-existing forms used by jazz musicians in a new and, to me at least, more complex manner. The purpose of this book is to inspire both instrumentalists and composers to look at musical elements in new ways.

Unlike Rattle’s recording of the Mahler Fifth, a great interpretation with a surprisingly sloppy Berlin Philharmonic, the Bavarian Radio Orchestra plays as if their lives depended on it. The three-day programme features both globally renowned and local artists spread …

  • I was just as delighted with the leader’s arrangements of other standard tunes in this album as I was with Morning Sunrise.
  • It’s more of a carefree romp, although the bridge uses rising chromatics which gives the tune an interesting shape.
  • The Unlimited license covers all existing and future platforms worldwide.
  • He does indeed create a new tune over the chords of the original, but doesn’t extend it to the degree that Witzel does, falling into the usual sequence-o-f-rhythmic-chords that most jazz

As the definition of popular music changes over time as public tastes change, defining art music may be difficult. Many musical traditions that are considered art music today were popular music styles of the past. In centuries to come, some types of popular music may fall out of favor and become classified as art music. And like Confucius he was anxious to regulate the use of particular modes (i.e., arrangements of notes, like scales) because of their supposed effects on people. Plato was a stern musical disciplinarian; he saw a correspondence between the character of a person and the music that represented him or her. In the Laws, Plato declared that rhythmic and melodic complexities were to be avoided because they led to depression and disorder.

Unlike Rattle’s recording of the Mahler Fifth, a great interpretation with a surprisingly sloppy Berlin Philharmonic, the Bavarian Radio Orchestra plays as if their lives depended on it. The three-day programme features both globally renowned and local artists spread over various stages on the former military site. The symbiosis of autonomous artworks, community projects, inventive dancefloors, circular architecture, and the collective experience of an innovative music festival makes us question what a festival can or should be. A first glimpse of the 2022 programme will be revealed early December. Vox Balaenae, one of his most famous and technically difficult works , is also given a superb reading.

It’s almost like hearing a recording in mono sound—very good, clear mono, but still mono—compared with state-of-the-art digital stereo. She just gets more out of her orchestra and, with that extra detail, a much deeper and more meaningful interpretation. One good example is the slow passage near the end of the first movement.

Both the theme statement, fragmented and almost as an allusion rather than a solid statement, and the variants move very slowly, building incrementally over a period of time. Being a dream, one does not reach a fulfillment so much as just one dream stage after another. Each of the three solo instruments play individually and independently of one another, adding their minimalist contributions in bits and pieces, fits and starts, but never quite conclusions. I was immediately struck by the “waves” Rattle created with the cello figures in the opening section as well as the depth of feeling he projects. This is not a shy or “moody” Mahler 9th, but a full-blooded performance, and Rattle pours every drop of emotion he has in him into this performance.

The album closes with The Old Country, a song that Cannonball Adderly wrote for vocalist Nancy Wilson back in 1961. This is a nice, upbeat performance, and although the original tune wasn’t one of the strongest that Adderly ever wrote, Witzel again does wonders with it. In the context of Adderly’s soul jazz, Ho plays very well, but again it’s the leader who commands the most attention. Yet it is Nocturne No. 7 which sounds the most like one of his Cartas Celestas with its rumbling arpeggios and asymmetric, impressionistic melody line. In addition, No. 8 almost sounds like a continuation of No. 7, albeit with a different theme.

  • Frequently, listeners enjoy a piece of popular music because of its predictability.

Svedlund plays it with a Romantic sweep, but Gražinytė-Tyla relaxes it still further, as if trying to coax the sadness in this music to come forward. Thus he and those musicians who thought as he did would probably appreciate this book. It also helps that tenor saxist Dann Zinn, who joins him on his three original pieces , is also an exceptional improvising artist. In addition, Zinn plays some unusual notes and fills behind the leader, both during theme statements and later in these tracks. If you listen carefully to the opening track, Feelin’ It, you will note that it is somewhat irregularly composed; the second half of the initial chorus statement falls into an irregular rhythmic pattern that one seldom heard in the early ‘60s.

Writing such reflective, slow music for the last movement is surely unusual, but in time the tempo doubles as both lower strings and winds …

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. You do not need a reservation or ticket to attend BAM Thursdays, however if you would like to visit the Museum, we ask you reserve a timed ticket in advance here. He proposes an interesting mix between minimalistic house and organic electronic music, achieving a resolutely futuristic track.

  • 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.
  • It definitely seems to be closer to the definition of art than music in my opinion anyway.
