Riccardo Muti From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Riccardo Muti (2008) Riccardo Muti, Cavaliere di Gran Croce OMRI[1] (Italian: [rikˈkardo ˈmuːti]; born 28 July 1941) is an Italian conductor. He holds two music directorships: the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestra Giovanile Luigi Cherubini. Previously he held posts at the Maggio Musicale in Florence, the Philharmonia Orchestra in London, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan and the Salzburg Whitsun Festival. Muti has been a prolific recording artist and has received dozens of honors, titles, awards and prizes. He is particularly associated with the music of Giuseppe Verdi. Childhood and education[edit] Muti was born in Naples but he spent his early childhood in Molfetta, near Bari, in the long region of Apulia on Italy's southern Adriatic coast. His father was a doctor in Molfetta and an amateur singer; his mother, a Neapolitan, was a professional singer. Muti graduated from Liceo classico (Classical Lyceum) Vittorio E ...

Yesterday was a double-header. Fellow opera buff and I attended two great operatic performances, a Rossini favorite La Cenerentola (Cinderella) staged by the incomparable Metropolitan Opera (known to all as simply "The Met") and the Richard Strauss epic, Salome, performed jointly by the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Opera Company of Philadelphia under the very skilled and energetic baton of Yannick Nezet Sequin. The first was Live in HD at the Regal cinema, but the second was live in-person at the Kimmel Center. In both cases, the experience was top shelf. The nice part of the Salome performance (and there were many nice parts) was the fantastic sound with the orchestra on the main stage and the singers on a super stage above and to the rear of the main stage. The combined effect was electric and made for a most thrilling visual and acoustical musical event. The audience's ten-minute wildly clapping and cheering ovation at the end was the surest sign of the show's success. And to turn the night ...
Jyst caught Copeland's "Appalachian Spring" on 90.1 radio. Original performance of the Philadelphia Orchestra, 1944, under the baton of Eugene Ormandy. What an amazing, take my breath away piece. Ah. made my day.

Let's meet DMITRI ALEXEEV: Russian pianist Dmitri Alexeev is one of the world's most highly regarded artists. His critically praised recitals on the world's leading concert stages and his concert appearances with the most prestigious orchestras have secured his position as one of "the most remarkable pianists of the day" (Daily Telegraph). He has performed with such orchestras as the Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, the five London orchestras, Orchestre de Paris, Israel Philharmonic and the Munich Bavarian Radio Orchestra. He has worked with conductors such as Ashkenazy, Boulez, Bychkov, Dorati, Gergiev, Giulini, Jansons, Muti, Pappano, Rozhdestvensky, Salonen, Temirkanov, Tilson Thomas and Klaus Tennstedt to name just a few. Alexeev was born in Moscow and began to play the piano at the age of five. One year later his talent took him to the Moscow Central Music School and then to the Moscow Conservatoire, where his professor was the ...
Just set up our Allen classic touring organ for this evenings performance by the Temple University Symphony Orchestra in the newly renovated space of the Lew Klein Hall (Formerly the Baptist Temple Church). The performance featuring Luis Biava, conductor with Jeffrey Solow, violoncello - and of course our good friend and organist Michael Stairs of Philadelphia Orchestra fame. The first few measures of the rehearsal sounded great! Admission is free.

I’ve always wanted to be pro-union, I swear. (I’m talking about labor unions.) I’ve always wanted to support oppressed workers, trying to get a better deal from the Man. But, in my time and place, union members have behaved abominably. And my sympathies are generally with management. I don’t like that this is so. But I feel I can’t help it (again, given my time and place). The Harlan County coalminers were a long time ago. Did you hear about Carnegie Hall’s opening night? There wasn’t one. That’s because a group of wealthy stagehands decided that Opening Night would not take place. Everyone was ready: the Philadelphia Orchestra, the conductor, the soloists, the ticket-buyers . . . Thousands of people were ready for Opening Night, but, hours before, the stagehands decided to cancel it. They struck. So Opening Night could not go forward. These stagehands are incredibly lucky. The chief one makes 530 grand a year. His colleagues all make more than 400. We’re not talkin’ horny-handed sons ...

Fantasia is a 1940 American animated film produced by Walt Disney and released by Walt Disney Productions. With story direction by Joe Grant and *** Huemer, and production supervision by Ben Sharpsteen, it is the third feature in the Disney animated features canon. The film consists of eight animated segments set to pieces of classical music conducted by Leopold Stokowski; seven of which are performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra. Music critic and composer Deems Taylor acts as the film's Master of Ceremonies, who introduces each segment in live action interstitial scenes. Disney settled on the film's concept as work neared completion on The Sorcerer's Apprentice, an elaborate Silly Symphonies short designed as a comeback role for Mickey Mouse, who had declined in popularity. As production costs grew higher than what it could earn, he decided to include the short in a feature-length film with other segments set to classical pieces. The soundtrack was recorded using multiple audio channels and reproduced . ...

Burlignton County Women in History: Mary Irick Drexel - 1868-1948 Mary Irick Drexel was born in 1868 in Vincentown , NJ . She lived on a 240-acre plot named “Locust Grove”. In 1891 she married George W. Childs Drexel at Trinity Episcopal Church on Mill Street . An extension had to be built on the church to accommodate all the guests. She then moved to Philadelphia with her new husband into a house that her millionaire father-in-law bought them on 18 th and Locust Streets. Today the house is now the Curtis Institute of Music. The Drexels were high profile patrons of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera Company. At one point, Mary worked as Director of the Philadelphia Red Cross. She also had a library built and named it after her mother, Sally Stretch Keen. The library is located at 94 Main Street in Vincentown. Throughout the years, Mr. and Mrs. Drexel donated a large number of books to keep the people interested in reading. Mary Drexel died at the age of 80. Her portrait, along with ...
By Michael Redmond TimeOFF/centraljersey.com March 21, 2014 In the Performing Arts, there are few stories more dramatic than those of last-minute debuts, and that’s exactly what happened in November to American tenor Dominic Armstrong. Here’s the story. Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic were performing Benjamin Britten’s song-studded Spring Symphony (1949) at Lincoln Center. The featured tenor withdrew due to illness, and one suspects the Philharmonic then found itself madly scrambling to find a replacement. The symphony is rarely done. It’s not something many tenors would have ready-to-go. Including Dominic Armstrong. “I’d never even heard of it,” the tenor recalled, en route to Boston for a special concert performance of Richard Strauss’s Salome with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Andris Nelson (a gig he repeated a few days later with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin). “I never saw the (Britten) score until the morning of the concert. But I was able ...

Nicola Benedetti : Violinist Nicola Benedetti is one of the most sought after violinists of her generation. Her ability to captivate audiences with her innate musicianship and dynamic presence, coupled with her wide appeal as a high profile advocate for classical music, has made her one of the most influential classical artists of today.

Today I learned of the passing of a life time friend of the Richards' family. Barbara Nunnold was a friend of family in our early years in Detroit. She passed in the early morning hours at the age of 87. She has been a "salt of the earth" fried and adopted family member of blue collar for 65 years.. She and husband Chuck were our next door neighbor. I can still see her whizing around in her '57 Chevy with her arm out the window. They had three kids and their on Timmy was my best friend during those Detroit years. Tim and I were full of mischief and usually up to no good- even on the day of our First Holy Communion.. Barbara and her family and the Richards' family vactioned together. They were at our wedding, making the trek from Detroit to Philadlephia. When Chuck passed Barb continued to be at important family functions. like my mom's special birthday parties, weddings. Barb visited me in the hospital when I spent two and half months in Detroits Childrens Hospital. Everyday when "Perry Mason" came on in ...

Last night was fun especially because I got to see West Philadelphia Orchestra!
Like everyone else in the world who has ever taken music lessons, I’ve been urged to practice slowly on many an occasion. But did I heed my teachers’ advice? Nope. After all, what’s the point of slow practice? Everything is easier slower – of course you can play things more accurately at a slow tempo. What’s the big deal? But…why do so many people swear by slow practice? Slow practice in the martial arts I began dabbling a bit in the martial arts when I went to college. My karate sensei would often make us practice our techniques in super slow motion to ensure we were using proper form and really developing an understanding of the nuances of each movement. Of course, it took me a while to understand why we were doing this. At first, as in music, I thought it was a waste of time. But then I realized how much more difficult it was to punch or kick in slow motion. It required a much deeper understanding of what each movement actually required. Slowly (ha, ha), I came to understand where I had m ...
For charities to be successful, they need talented, experienced leaders. Those leaders command significant salaries. But CEOs who command high salaries should also get the most out of the organizations they lead. The leaders of these 10 organizations are taking high salaries at the expense of spending dollars on the charity's programs. Despite receiving more than $200,000 in annual pay, these CEOs run organizations that devote less than 60% of their budgets to their programs and services. That means that at least 40% of your dollars are going to such costs as fundraising and administration, including the salary of the CEO. Rank Charity Salary 1 The Philadelphia Orchestra $597,556 2 Young America's Foundation $525,961 3 The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists $455,587 4 Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights $407,000 5 All Children's Hospital Foundation $390,018 6 Chapin School $383,508 7 Detroit Symphony Orchestra $379,868 8 Tiger Missing Link Foundation $375,951 9 New Orle ...

I love Christmas music, and I've had it on in the background all afternoon as I work--- the music calls up six decades of memories-- some sweet, some silly, some sentimental, (I still can't listen to "Silver Bells" without longing for my Dad or hear "Jingle Bell Rock" without imagining my sister in emerald green satin and sequins with a baton in her hand,) How much my mother HATED "Blue Christmas" and that Hawaiian Christmas Song. Seeing Babes in Toyland (1961, so I wouldn't have been quite 7), my first Radio City Christmas Spectacular (I was about 8), watching my first professional production of the Nutcracker, The Philadelphia Orchestra, the NYP, the ASO, and the Boston Pops live.

One reason I love a snowstorm: the dead quiet of night. No cars, no trucks, and (typically) no plows. It's really nice. Another reason I love a snowstorm: curling up on the living room couch, listening to the Philadelphia Orchestra broadcast on our restored 1946 Scott radio-phonograph. All I'd need to complete the picture is a comfy wing-back chair, a Kaywoodie, and a John P. Marquand novel.

TODAY'S CARTOON BREAK is surveying the complete Fleischer Studio Popeye cartoons; this is the 29th short in the series, and it's an awesome one! I've always loved both films (like ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST or A CLOCKWORK ORANGE) and cartoons (like Bugs Bunny's LONG HAIRED HARE) where the music is practically a character, and this is an outstanding example. Note that The Fleischers are making fun of the great conductor Leopold Stokowski, here lampooned by whoever has the wig on at a given time, years before the Looney Tunes crews' various attacks on him. Stokowski still headed up the Philadelphia Orchestra when this cartoon was released. It's also interesting that Franz von Suppé's "Poet and Peasant Overture" is one of the most overused pieces in early cartoons (along with Rossini's "Largo al factotum" from THE BARBER OF SEVILLE) which also shows up in the Sylvester cartoon CATS A-WEIGH! the Bugs Bunny cartoon BUNKER HILL BUNNY, the Donald Duck cartoon SLIDE DONALD SLIDE, and was used extensively i ...

Among my friends, I'm known as "that guy". The one with stacks of CDs, piles of reviews, and bookmarked webpages with the latest industry news. And yet, one of my greatest thrills is sharing this music with other people.

If you feel the same way, start your musical journey with this acid trip of a piece. It's literally music's first depiction of drug-induced lust, and is incredibly vivid.

Tommasini on PRIGIONIERO (NY TIMES): "Knowing what negative associations many listeners have with the words “12-tone music,” I must salute Mr. Gilbert for the courage of his convictions. " This annoys me greatly. The headline on the rapturous review is "12-Tone Tale of a Prisoner." Why do we continue to do THIS? Not one soul in that audience who hadn't previously encountered this work or read about it would have had ANY idea that the method by which it was constructed was 12-tone. Nor, I can imagine, would many be willing to believe that it WAS, or at least wondered how it could be that Dallapiccola managed to use the method to a result so different from their expectations. SYSTEMS DO NOT GUARANTEE ANYTHING ABOUT THE ULTIMATE QUALITY OF A COMPOSITION. Merely being tonal doesn't make a work beautiful or meaningful. Being Modal doesn't make a work antique. Being Neo-classical guarantees nothing. But, yes... it's a hugely compelling work. Seems we have to go the to Philaharmonic these days for ...

On this rainy night I am revisiting an old favorite: Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition (1874) in the opulent EMI recording by pianist Boris Giltburg, whose recoring of the war sonatas of Prokofiev so impressed me. What a wonderful, colorful piece of music, and what a great composer Mussorgsky could sometimes be. If you were to ask me whether I prefer the orginal piano version or the orchestrated version, I would have to defer. I love them both!

I think I finally found a DVD of a movie I saw long ago, that had a long-lasting impact on me. I saw "Interlude" in the summer of 1968, it was a pretty obscure movie, the story of a young writer who fell in love with the dynamic orchestra conductor she was interviewing (Oskar Werner), and the ultimate heartbreak that followed. I was so taken by the classical score (Werner conducting his orchestra), I went out and bought the album with the soundtrack... full of movements from classical standards... which in turn led to my buying the full work, then further works by that composer, etc. In that era, you could wait until 20 minutes before the performance, and for $6.00 buy a nosebleed section ticket at the old Academy of Music, where I came to love the live performances of the Philadelphia Orchestra. And the love of that music remains to this day. If I'm not mistaken, I also saw Jim Morrison and The Doors at the Arena that summer, so it's not like I was a classical geek... :) Can't wait for the DVD to arrive ...

Wolfgang Sawallisch, Philadelphia Orchestra's music director from 1993-2003, has died. He was 89.
Two milestones on what my friend Dennis Powell calls "our side of the street..." The death at 89 of Wolfgang Sawallisch, the great German conductor who led the Philadelphia Orchestra and later the Bavarian State Opera. Some thought he should be more showy, but like Ringo, another understated performer, he always sounded good. And the death at 91 of Matt Mattox, the incendiary show dancer of postwar Broadway and a series of dance-intensive musicals, notably "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers." To stand out in a cast which also included Jacques D'Amboise, Russ Tamblyn, and Tommy Rall? Whoo. Both leave us with the unforgettable: may they both rest in peace.
FROM NORMAN LEBRECHT'S BLOG. A great conductor, RIP.February 24, 2013 Wolfgang Sawallisch died on Friday, aged 89. His greatest fame came late in life as music director of the Philadelphia Orchestra(1993-2003), but his prime achievement was 21 years at the head of the Bavarian State Opera (1971-92), instilling performance standards that were the envy of its rivals in Vienna and Berlin. A gifted pianist, he accompanied many of the Golden Age singers. He recorded mostly with EMI (official bio below). Never a forceful personality, his modest dedication to the work in hand elicited outstanding results. His recordings of the Schumann symphonies are in a class of their own. Wolfgang Sawallisch was born in Munich in 1923. His musical studies were interrupted by the war, but after graduating from Munich’s Hochschule für Musik he took up his first professional engagement in 1947 as a répétiteur in Augsburg. Six years later he became the youngest general music director in Germany when he moved to Aachen. Betwe ...
Rest in peace, Wolfgang Sawallisch. I'll always cherish singing Beethoven's Missa Solemnis with you and the Philadelphia Orchestra in Philly and at Carnegie Hall. Never seen a conductor sing all the vocal solos during piano rehearsal before.

Marian Anderson was one of the greatest singers of the 20th Century, but it was her dignity in the face of racial prejudice which confirmed her legacy in the United States.On April 23, 1924,she held a concert at New York’s Town Hall. Unfortunately, attendance for the event was poor and reviews were mixed with some critics finding her voice to be “lacking.” In 1925, Marian took the brave step of entering a singer competition sponsored by the prestigious New York Philharmonic. She surprised everyone by winning the first prize and then singing with orchestra on August 26, 1925. This opened a number of doors for her, exposing her to critical acclaim as well as giving her more opportunities to sing in public. She now gained the attention of Frank LaForge, a pianist and composer who helped to train her, and Arhur Judson, manager of both the New York Philharmonic and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Judson signed on to become her manager, arranging for a number of concert performances across the United States, ...

THE EARLY YEARS Chi Chi started singing with a group in school who eventually recorded the song, 'Memory Lane' in 1959 as The Stereos and issued it on the tiny Mink label. When their choice of a group name conflicted with another established group of the same name, 'Memory Lane was reissued on Mink as The Tams later in 1959. A few years later in 1963, 'Memory Lane' was picked up by Parkway and reissued as The Tams and you guessed it, had a problem with the name of The Tams being used by another vocal group. With the song becoming fairly successful, especially in the Philadelphia area, Parkway quickly pressed new copies of 'Memory Lane' credited to The Hippies which stuck. The song is a classic Doo *** affair that peaked at on the national chart. Chi Chi remembers, ".we were kids, they woke us up so we could record at 3 or 4 AM, taking us into the City. I sang too hard and I even made a mistake in the words. I couldn't remember whether I was to sing "truly" or "really" so it came out "ruly"!! ha-ha makes m ...

Everyone in the orchestra loves playing their instruments, listening to classical music, and spending time with Dr. Smith, so it is an absolute pleasure to be a member of this loud and friendly group."

The place was mobbed with school children, like 1-3 graders. Oh that I could have had that kind of opportunity in western Kansas in the 1950's. I had to go to university before I ever discovered art. Seems like I have been spending my life trying to make up for what I missed those first twenty years.
