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 ...

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 ...

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.

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/ 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 ...

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.

Recent and future performances include engagements with the London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, WDR Cologne, Danish National Symphony, Strasbourg Philharmonic, Orchestre National D’Ile de France, Beethoven Orchester Bonn, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Chamber, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, National Symphony Orchestra of Washington D.C., Dallas Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony Vancouver Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Melbourn ...

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. 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. 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. The program is truly outstanding, ending in a house recital that last year was attended by beloved violinist Ida Haendel. The festival is open to students 13 years of age through college.
While watching a documentary on the Philadelphia Orchestra ("Music From the Inside Out"), I never realized how pinched and unnaturally tight Bernard Garfield's embouchure looked.

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.
Yannick Nézet-Séguin was forced to bow out of Friday evening’s concert at Carnegie Hall after his doctor advised him not to travel due to a severe sinus infection It must have come as a disappointment to the musicians of the Philadelphia Orchestra that their fiery young music director couldn’t join…
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. Not a great quality recording, but a nice walk down memory lane. I don't recall who the soloists were. Can someone fill in the blanks?
