Comparing her performance here of the Third to Thor Svedlund with the Gothenberg Symphony, for instance, one hears very similar tempi but completely different phrasing. For the most part, Svedlund leads the music in a fairly chipper manner, propelling the fast passages with great energy. Gražinytė-Tyla also has energy to spare for those moments, but in the quieter, more reflective passages there is considerably more nuance, and with this greater nuance comes a wealth of feeling.

Hammond organist Brian Ho, on the other hand, is just a rhythmic player who swings. He’s not as inventive as Jimmy Smith or Barbara Dennerlein , who are the two best jazz organists of my lifetime. Were his bandmates not on such an exalted level, it probably wouldn’t matter so much, but since they are, my verdict is that he is OK but nothing to write home about.

We see them as catalysts to build Labs, Exhibitions, and Festivals as momentums for the better. We’ve managed to teach ourselves how to express ideas through written words, as well as emotions through art and music. Through our art and music, the emotion felt by an artist may be encoded through color, shadow and harmony to be decoded and experienced by an observer or listener. By consciously focusing on art and music together, we can create new art forms.

We also strive to help students appreciate Art, Music and Theatre as significant dimensions of the human experience. Studying the history of the arts brings home the central role that they have played in the development of human thought, both within and outside the Judeo-Christian tradition. Practicing the arts encourages students to incorporate creative expression into their wider intellectual and personal development. In forming the human being more completely, the department …

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.

Since the whole symphony fits onto one CD, it is also one of the quicker performances of it (Walter’s and Barbirolli’s recordings also fit onto one CD). This first movement is less meditative and much more dramatic than one is used to hearing; not a single note or phrase is left to languish, yet the emotion always sounds …

Naturally, this new recording has far superior sonics to Barshai’s, but I still commend his interpretation to you as well. Many cultures around the world have musical traditions that fall under the category of art music, although it typically excludes most popular and traditional, tribal, or folk music. In the Western world, it includes what is known as classical music and some types of jazz or blues. In the Eastern world, it includes many cultural music genres, including, but certainly not limited to, Indian Hindustani classical music, Indonesian gamelan music, and European medieval chants. Around the world, music traditions have used elements that are not readily apparent to most listeners unfamiliar with the tradition. Many music lovers dislike entire genres of music simply because they have never learned what makes the music different from their favorite genres of music.

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.

This time, they are joined by multi-instrumentalist Stephane Salerno. ‘Celeste’ oscillates between muted guitars and magical lines of synthesizers. It’s a track that can seamlessly soundtrack summer party nights and sunset walks. The vibrations heard in music can be …
