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 .
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 natural and not particularly forced. Listen, for instance, to the harsh trombone figures in this first movement; normally taken for granted, here they sound menacing, implying darker moods than one normally hears. The way Rattle conducts it, this first movement has the same kind of dramatic feel as the first movement of the Second Symphony. And, thanks to the mind-blowing digital sound, you almost feel as if you’re sitting in a front-row seat at the concert. You hear a myriad of orchestral details you’ve never paid much attention to before, such as the strange little French horn and flute duet in the last few minutes of this movement.
- In addition, Zinn plays some unusual notes and fills behind the leader, both during theme statements and later in these tracks.
- Around the world, music traditions have used elements that are not readily apparent to most listeners unfamiliar with the tradition.
- In between Nos. 2 and 4, however, we get the relatively long, almost surrealist Nocturne No. 3, which almost sounds like one of the composer’s Cartas Celestas in miniature.
- Here, Zinn is the first soloist up, and he does try to play Witzel’s game of creating an entirely new piece from the basic material.

In India, music has been put into the service of religion from earliest times; Vedic hymns stand at the beginning of the record. As the art developed over many centuries into a music of profound melodic and rhythmic intricacy, the discipline of a religious text or the guideline of a story determined the structure. In the 21st century the narrator remains central to the performance of much Indian traditional music, and the virtuosity of a skillful singer rivals that of the instrumentalists. There is very little concept of vocal or instrumental idiom in the Western sense. Moreover, an element of improvisation is retained that is vital to the success of a performance.
Department Mission Statement
Like Kant, Hegel preferred vocal music to instrumental, deprecating wordless music as subjective and indefinite. The essence of music he held to be rhythm, which finds its counterpart in the innermost self. What is original in Hegel’s view is his claim that music, unlike the other arts, has no independent existence in space, is not “objective” in that sense; the fundamental rhythm of music is experienced within the hearer. In the past seven years, Horst has grown to a movement dedicated to developing talent, cities & spaces.
I really don’t think that any review or liner notes could be more eloquent than that. And as a bonus, Mr. Perelman was kind enough to send me these great photos of he and Mr. Shipp together. It really is a joy for them to play together, and in this CD that joy has truly come to…Fruition.

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.
Unspoken symphony analyzed your artwork to create a unique melody with pre-selected instruments, but there’s more! Preview and play your melody with other instrument combinations to create a symphony that’s music to your ears, or click ‘i’m done! He directs a world-class five-member touring ensemble, Scrap Arts Music, that exclusively plays his 145+ invented instruments and his original repertoire at leading international festivals and theatres around the world. The Department of Art & Music is dedicated to this premise by preparing students to develop into superior, well-rounded, and accomplished intellectuals and professionals, whatever their chosen career paths. The Scherzo, too, walks a fine line between ultra-precision and excitement.
It definitely seems to be closer to the definition of art than music in my opinion anyway. Gottfried von Leibniz (1646–1716), music reflected a universal rhythm and mirrored a reality that was fundamentally mathematical, to be experienced in the mind as a subconscious apprehension of numerical relationships. Johannes Kepler (1571–1630) perpetuated, in effect, the idea of the harmony of the spheres, attempting to relate music to planetary movement. St. Thomas Aquinas (c. 1225–74), held the basis of music to be mathematical; music reflects celestial movement and order. Such returns to simplicity, directness, and the primacy of the word have been made periodically, out of loyalty to Platonic imperatives, however much these “neo” practices may have differed from those of the Greeks themselves.
A visionary musician schooled in jazz and world music traditions, Gregory draws inspiration from avant-garde composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. He learned the art of metal fabrication in order to create instruments that could give expression to his unique musical voice. Gregory composes music for quintet, orchestra and film, creates musical instruments from industrial scrap, and choreographs movement. Now, this is scarcely the deepest of Weinberg’s symphonies—the second movement is light and airy, in her hands as well as in Svedlund’s—yet even here she just gets something extra out of the music. Both she and Svedlund present a boisterous profile for this movement, but only she manages to elicit so much inner detail.
