As good as these other pieces are, it would have been nice to have had recordings of pieces that are not already out there on other discs. I’m sure that she has other orchestral works in her catalog that could have been used. We both have felt the full weight of the Coltrane universe at a very young age but realized that in some ways it is a dead end and that we would have to dig very deep to come up with something new that does not sound like we are on our knees worshiping Coltrane . We both love to explore so many various aspects of so many different types of music all with a mind to synthesize it into our our own unique brand of playing .
- Renowned local artist Emma Daisy was the featured artist for this year’s Art & Music promotional artwork.
- She became fascinated with vernacular architecture — buildings and environments built by people lacking “formal” training, yet brilliantly employing materials and traditional processes of local know-how, culture and environment.
- I once knew a composer who very much liked performances of Mozart’s Symphonies that were unexciting but texturally clear because she enjoyed being able to hear the structure of the piece without interference from an individual interpretation, but I’m fussy.
- If he had wanted to do a song from Porgy and Bess, I wish he had chosen “It Ain’t Necessarily So” which is the best piece in the whole opera.
- There is very little concept of vocal or instrumental idiom in the Western sense.

His broadcast composing credits include shows on the National Geographic Channel, the History Channel, PBS, Cartoon Network, and Discovery. He has created music for plays staged at Portland Stage Company, including Snow Queen, Iron Kisses, Magnetic North, and Passion of the Hausfrau. Hans studied at Oberlin Conservatory and earned a Master’s degree in jazz studies from the New England Conservatory. The event centered around a large art auction featuring nearly 200 album-sized 12″ x 12″ birch boards created by locally and nationally recognized artists.
Not that the entire song itself is predictable, but just that it follows recognizable patterns to some extent. Art music is a term that describes any type of music that has a more complex structure than popular music and requires the listener to pay attention. In general, popular music is catchy and doesn’t require anything from the listener. Art music typically is an acquired taste where the listener must either study before valuing it or must listen attentively to appreciate it. Aristotle, following Plato, thought that music has power to mold human character, but he would admit all the modes, recognizing happiness and pleasure as values to both the individual and the state. Aristotle made a distinction between those who have only theoretical knowledge and those who produce music, maintaining that persons who do not perform cannot be good judges of the performances of others.

The connections between music and art that Kandinsky formulated, and others, in my opinion, can also be drawn between Aboriginal art and music, as they are similar. It’s said that the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky was a painter of ‘sound and vision’. Looking at Kandinsky’s Colour Study’s, it’s clear that there is a strong connection to his works and many of the designs found in Aboriginal art. And another, Walter Pater said, “all art aspires to the condition of music”.
By binding the chords and phrases of Schoenberg’s music, Iman almost makes it sound more pentatonic than atonal—one might say, a cousin to Scriabin. Nonetheless, Witzel does what he can with it, playing solo throughout and improving its quality if not quite lifting it far enough out of its original form. In his second improvised chorus, he resorts to some flashy triplets in lieu of his usual high-level creations. If he had wanted to do a song from Porgy and Bess, I wish he had chosen “It Ain’t Necessarily So” which is the best piece in the whole opera.
I was just as delighted with the leader’s arrangements of other standard tunes in this album as I was with Morning Sunrise. 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 organists use. I don’t wish to make this sound as if Ho is not a good jazz organist; he clearly is; he’s just not on the same level as the leader, Witzel. The term “art music” refers primarily to classical traditions that focus on formal styles, invite technical and detailed deconstruction and criticism, and demand focused attention from the listener. In strict western practice, art music is considered primarily a written musical tradition, preserved in some form of music notation, as opposed to being transmitted orally, by rote, or in recordings . Adam Hernandez is a self-taught visual artist originally from the Bronx, New York.
The Prologue for string orchestra is clearly the most serious piece on the orchestra, and it makes a nice finale. This performance of the Peanuts Gallery is a good one, thanks primarily to pianist Elizabeth Dorman who gets into the spirit of it very well. Conductor Lecce-Chong and the orchestra also do a great job on “Snoopy Does the Samba.” “Lucy Freaks Out,” however, isn’t as energetic as the performance by Jeffrey Biegel and Alexander Jiménez on Naxos. Both Henry Threadgill and Wadada Leo Smith, whose work I like quite a bit, have high praise for this system and claim it will help the improvising musician.
