If you've never listened through a complete recording of Handel's famous oratorio "Messiah," I would strongly recommend it. It is truly a work of great beauty. My favorite recording of this work was made before the "historically informed performance" movement got started; it features the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

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 ...

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.

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. Andy Williams and Perry Como Christmas Specials on TV, being read "The Night Before Christmas" by the great voice of NFL films, John Facenda (at the time he was the local anchor and my aunt worked for WCAU )

Privet to the Thursday edition of Sleepers Awake with your host Phil Davis Campbell. Phil will bring several hours of Great Classical Music to start our Thursday here at the Classical Station. We start the program with a work that premiered in Pest on June 1, 1853 as the people heard the Fantasy on Hungarian Folk Themes by Hungrian composer Franz Liszt. Ivan Davis will perform alongside the Philadelphia Orchestra as Eugen Ormandy conducts. Later this hour the Violin Concerto, Op. 33 by Danish composer Carl Nielsen.
The Philadelphia Orchestra plays the music from The Nutcracker better than any other. Period. My uncle played French Horn for them so maybe I'm a bit biased? ;)
Cello Scholarships to the Miami Soloists Symposium with Kimberly Fisher of The Philadelphia Orchestra and Ross Harbaugh of the Frost School of Music just became available at PIMF. Message me or phone if you know any cellists that would like to participate in the intense solo performance program in Miami next week.

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 is going to test my luck: Philadelphia Orchestra show at 2 that runs about 2 hours and 17 minutes. Train to Peabody at 4:35, which arrives at 5:46. Joel's senior recital at 6. Normally I would be a little worried about all the cogs needing to work well in order for me to make it - add on an incredible snow storm.?? I have NO idea what's going to happen.

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 ...

To my Westminster family: Found this 25yr old (1987-88 season), dub of a dub cassette recording of a broadcast of Westminster Symphonic Choir singing Bruckner's Te Deum (1st Mvt.) with Riccardo Muti and the Philadelphia Orchestra.

A severe sinus condition has sidelined the conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Philadelphia Orchestra announced on Monday.

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 want to start a small collection of your own, I've somehow narrowed it down to ten albums, which I think anyone who cares about music should have. :)Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique (Muti, Philadelphia Orchestra)-- A good friend of mine was lightly complaining that classical music was "too relaxing". 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.

Chicago Symphony Orchestra - Strings - Bass Bradley Opland Bass Born in Minot, North Dakota, Bradley Opland began his musical studies at an early age and, by the time he was 10, knew that he wanted a career in a symphony orchestra. After graduating from high school a year early, he moved to Philadelphia to continue his music studies at the Curtis Institute of Music. One year later, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski appointed Brad to the bass section of the Minnesota Orchestra at the age of 18, one of the youngest musicians ever hired. He remained in Minnesota through Sir Neville Marriner’s tenure, coming to Chicago in 1984 after Sir Georg Solti offered him a position in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. September 2012

Lets hear it for Philly! When their flight from China to Macau was delayed on the tarmac, members of the Philadelphia Orchestra played an impromptu piece by Dvorchak to entertain the passengers! Pretty cool.

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 ...
This one's played by the composer himself with Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Well, dear readers, this week has flown by, like a gazelle conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra in the style of Eugene Ormandy – random, I know, but there you are.

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.

Phila. Chorale and Orchestra perform 'Carmina Burana' David Patrick Stearns, Inquirer Classical Music Critic Posted: Saturday, February 16, 2013, 3:01 AM Carmina Burana, the Carl Orff cantata that inspires extremes of adoration and revulsion, emerged a changed piece Thursday night. It ascended from its typical semiprofessional performance circumstances to the best this city can offer: the Philadelphia Singers Chorale at its full-tilt best, with the Philadelphia Orchestra in precise form under guest conductor Rafael Fr
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, ...

Flecks of light caught their wings as they landed on the feeders Dad built for her. The kitchen window was a favorite spot. God knows she owned it, washing up breakfast, lunch, dinner dishes for me and Graham Campbell, Scott Campbell, and Ross Campbell everyday. She was there everyday.

The Philadelphia Art Museum, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Franklin Institute. She took me there. Just me, alot, only sometimes with my favorite aunt and cousin Cambo Wood.

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 ...

Musicians and teachers. This is a portion of a recent blog entry by a freshman member of the Penn Symphony... these were encouraging words to me during a winter lull in motivation... keep at it all of you - you're making a difference even when it seems like a real grind! "...when I walk into the enormous and beautiful Irvine Auditorium for rehearsals twice a week, I am always excited to play alongside other talented undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and community members (the principal cellist has subbed with the Philadelphia Orchestra!). 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."

Finished my tour of the National Gallery this morning. It is such a wonderful collection and so many of the paintings are like old friends to me. 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.

I can remember growing up and hearing about how racist the state of Arizona is and how they didn't even celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday. It didn't become a Holiday here til 1984, that is pretty astonishing indeed. I must say from my own personal experiences that people from all walks of life here have been nothing but kind and generous to say the least. Never judge a place or person by what you have not experienced for yourself. You may discover that you actually love it or fall in love with them. I must admit that I'm a lil sad I will be missing the annual Philadelphia Orchestra performance that I attend each year at Martin Luther King High School. I will make sure to pay tribute in his honor while here in Phoenix. Happy Birthday to the King. Martin Luther King Jr.
Music returns next week at Grand Written by Margie Fishman The News Journal Jan. 14 delawareonline.com When the Delaware Symphony Orchestra takes the stage at the Grand in downtown Wilmington Jan. 25, it will be a much-anticipated reunion eight months in the making.

Principal pianist Lura Johnson will perform Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in F-Sharp Minor, the same piece she expertly handled when she auditioned for the DSO in 2010. “She was stunning. I didn’t want to stop her,” DSO music director David Amado remembered. “This time I don’t have to.” The first in a three-concert classical series, next week’s concert also marks the debut for concertmaster David Southorn as the orchestra’s permanent first-chair violinist, a position open for more than two years. The remaining two concerts in the series, presenting standard favorites like B ...

Performance Dedication: To the Memory of Katharine "Kitty" Debolt Katherine Gerson DeBolt (3/30/1939 - 5/7/2012) was born in Philadelphia, where she undertook her musical studies with the Curtis Quartet members. Her degrees were from Oberlin Conservatory and The Ohio State University. There she met Dave, and began a rewarding shared professional career and marriage of 50 years. Kitty performed with many orchestras, including first desk positions with Tulsa and Kansas City Philharmonic orchestras. Always active with chamber music groups, this interest flowered when Dave moved to professorship at Kent State University. With the Kent Camerata and the Maine Friends of Music, she performed as a solo and chamber artist in many areas of America, Europe and China. Kitty played for the Galion Messiah Orchestra for many years, and always valued this collaboration with friends here. Thanks be to God for Kitty

The 10:00 hour brings us cello music! Tchaikovsky's Roccoco Variations for cello and orchestra featuring cellist Mischa Maisky and then we'll hear a cello sonata by Charles Alkan. At the top of the 11:00 hour, Eugene Ormandy directs the Philadelphia Orchestra in a performance of Rachmaninoff's Symphony No.2 in E minor!
A new Violin Concerto promised to the Philadelphia Orchestra won't be done in time for its January premiere, Carnegie Hall announced Thursday.

“It's [music education] terribly important, extremely important -- because when you are a child, you are in a receptive age ... In high schools, public schools -- that's where they must have the best influence, the first influence, which will go through their whole life.” - Eugene Ormandy – conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra
