The idea of attending a college specifically to be part of its choir is not one that would occur to many Australians. Within the hallowed halls of Oxford and Cambridge, however, it’s very much the norm, writes Nicky Gluch in her piece based on an interview with the choral director of the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, Stephen Layton. The ‘bright young things’ that make up the Choir will tour Australia in July as part of Musica Viva’s International Concert Season. Named one of Gramophone magazine’s ‘20 Greatest Choirs’, the Choir for this tour will perform one of the 20th-century’s most beautiful choral works: the 1922 Mass for Unaccompanied Double Choir by Frank Martin. The performance will also include a comprehensive collection of smaller works, including one by the Australian Joe Twist, commissioned especially for this tour. Read the full story on the next page, which provides a fascinating insight into the unique world of choristers in the United Kingdom of which Stephen Layton is a prime example. Another European phenomenon that is quickly becoming a global icon is ‘Robertissimo’: the musicianship and artistry of renowned tenor Roberto Alagna. His fans will be thrilled to see his Australian debut this month with a program that promises to be “full and dense” according to the man himself. Pick up the conversation with Fine Music’s Annabelle Drumm on page 5. And we also catch up with Australian soprano Rachelle Durkin, currently in New York performing with the Met, but due back on home soil this month for Pinchgut Opera’s production of Armida. On the local scene, there are a number of outstanding performances coming up. One of these is from violinist Rebecca Gill. With the assistance of Fine Music’s Kruger Scholarship, Gill has collaborated with composer and friend Chris Williams to produce a new work that will have its debut at Live from the Joan next month. Live from the Joan, is the follow up to Fine Music’s new and ambitious live broadcast which took place at Sydney’s Town Hall last year. A free concert, Live from the Joan, invites all Sydneysiders to attend the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Sunday 31 July for an afternoon of fine music. For more details see page 11.

Choir of trinity college, cambridge

Stephen Layton. Image – Keith Saunders The idea of attending a college specifically to be part of its choir is not one that would occur to many Australians. Within the hallowed halls of Oxford and Cambridge, however, it’s very much the norm. There, chosen students reading anything from mathematics to philosophy to ancient languages put aside their books, don their church garb or concert blacks, and unite in song. The ‘bright young things’ that make up the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge will tour Australia in July as part of Musica Viva’s International Concert Season. Leading them will be the renowned choral director, himself a former ‘bright young thing’, Stephen Layton. Named one of Gramophone magazine’s ‘20 Greatest Choirs’, the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge for this tour will perform one of the 20th-century’s most beautiful choral works: the 1922 Mass for Unaccompanied Double Choir by Frank Martin. The composer regarded it as an intensely personal spiritual expression – it took 40 years for him to allow it to be heard – and it has never left the spotlight since. Surrounding Martin’s masterpiece is a rich cache of smaller pieces. Of special note are two new works: one by the choir’s Organ Scholar, Owain Park; and another 2

by the Australian Joe Twist, commissioned especially for this tour.

do with cathedrals and to do with university college chapels”.

As choral director, Layton is required to be not just conductor but also a nurturer of these young students. As he explains to Fine Music magazine, “the most significant thing is that these young singers, musicians, students, call them what you will, are intellectually very able. Indeed, it’s their intellectual qualities which are at the heart of the music making that we do.

In fact, there are more than 30 cathedrals in the United Kingdom where children get the experience of singing in choirs every day.

“Their understanding and their ability to do things fast and intuitively and respond to each other, these are the things that I try to nurture, if you like, almost more than the young voices.”

Devoted work

It’s a role that Layton understands from every angle. As a boy he was a chorister at the Winchester Cathedral. As a student he was an organ scholar with the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge. And at 19 he founded the mixed-voice choir Polyphony and has been directing choirs ever since. He is insistent, however, that his relationship with choral music is not unique. “I would say”, he counters, “that it’s something that many have enjoyed in the same way as me because we all come from the same route and this route… is actually to

“This is a unique tradition unsurpassed in any country in the world… and so these great cathedrals, which cover the whole of the United Kingdom, are the bastions of preserving the choral music of Tallis and Byrd,” said Layton. The 12 pieces that the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge will perform in Sydney can all be classified as ‘sacred’ but Layton disagrees with the strict definition of the term. “For me everything is sacred”, he says, “everything I do is sacred whether it be ‘secular’ music or ‘sacred’ music”. He continues: “I think all music is to the glory of God and I think it’s performed to the same glory whether it is in a church or in a concert hall… The presentation is the same; if the music’s sombre it will be sombre in the concert hall and sombre in the church. If it’s ecstatic, it will be ecstatic in both places”. There is no doubting his sincerity. Layton answers every question with consideration

“Perhaps it tries to evoke the ancient in Australia and the ancient in England,” he adds. 2016 will see Layton’s choir, Polyphony, turn 30 and himself turn 50. So what does this milestone year mean to him? “Well, I’m proud”, he says, “to be part of a great choral tradition, to be part of something that seems to be timeless, something that’s rooted in history and something that I can add my part to in trying to shape and help and nurture young people”.

and conviction. As such, when asked how he feels about performing Steven Stucky’s O sacrum convivium (in memoriam Thomas Tallis) in light of the composer’s recent death (in February this year), his answer feels almost eulogic: “It’s a favourite piece of mine… and I think it’s a really brilliant little choral concerto, so different in the way he sets the text, say, compared to Tallis. “Where Tallis sets it fairly slow and sedate, Stucky gives us a very fast and slightly American-minimalist kind of thing, I mean there’s a bit of (Steve) Reich in terms of the choral repetitions, or a bit of (Philip) Glass. But I think it’s a really ambitious piece and hugely successful to listen to,” says Layton, adding that it shows Stucky wasn’t just an “American composer who wrote some nice choral pieces”. Layton believes that Stucky was a real mainstream American symphonic composer, a great orchestrator, who just happened to love a particular period in English music.

“I find myself feeling I have a kindred spirit with this composer because I feel he loves

Composers these days confuse us…

this great music from the Renaissance period in England and wants to celebrate it as an American,” said Layton.

Musical call and answer The idea of a ‘kindred spirit’ raises the notion that much of a composer’s or a conductor’s work is done alone. They are part of the music making but not of the troupe and as such ask questions that often only they can answer. This goes against what Layton describes as “our primordial feelings from the start of time to do with call and answer, the hunting call, the answering call, those sounds that human beings first made”. He believes that it is these feelings that make the antiphonal effects of Frank Martin’s Mass for Double Choir (the feature of the Sydney concert) so alluring.

“It’s something deep in our consciousness”, he says, “from time immemorial when we were hunter-gatherers and we needed to call each other and communicate, you know a little shepherd boy making a sound to another shepherd boy looking after some sheep in another pasture. You hear one sound and you respond with another”. The Frank Martin mass in its antiphonal effect of two groupings is “all about that”, says Layton. “There are also other influences on the antiphonal aspects of the Martin because there are also the chants of the church. There is always a lot of Gregorian chant-like music and that’s always made up of question and answer, call and response if you like,” he said. The perpetuity of time and the way humans relate to that is a notion that resonates with Layton’s interspersed programming of Renaissance and Contemporary works. “Well, I always like to blur these things together, the ancient and the modern”, he explains, “because I feel that particularly in this ‘sacred’ music, they’re all striving after one ultimate goal, if you like, and that’s celebrating a spirituality”. Layton finds it fascinating how we can be confused by composers and imagine that a piece was written very recently or long ago and can often be wrong on both counts. “Composers these days confuse us by writing neo-type music sometimes. But, also, when you hear the same text being set by different composers through the ages, of course that’s a unifier which bring the music together,” he says. This is no more obvious than in the newest piece in the program, the as yet unnamed work by Australian Joe Twist, commissioned especially for this Musica Viva tour. Layton is cautious when asked about the work: “I have to think carefully about what I can tell you… what I think I can say is that it’s interesting because it uses ancient text, Caedmon’s Hymn but… it then seems to use the sounds and the feelings perhaps of things in Australia”.

Layton wants to pass on the great choral tradition in which he was brought up and says: “I shall continue to do that until I die, just making sure that I am celebrating the music and sharing it with as many people as possible”. When asked about his dreams for the next decade, he says: “I guess I would like to keep doing my air miles that I do, visiting as many places as possible, meeting new people and new cultures where I learn from their music and also share my music with them”.

FROM THE CHAIR... There is much excitement and anticipation at Fine Music 102.5 as projects we have dreamed of start to become a reality. For many years we have run a highly successful Work Experience Program. This gives about 14 students in Year 10, two at a time, the opportunity to spend a week at Fine Music learning how to present, program and be involved in the myriad of activities essential to keeping the radio station on air. For some time we have wanted to extend a day version of this to a broader range of students. Three significant donations last year enabled us to buy the unit adjacent to our new studios. This provides the space we need to accommodate school children.

Future Fanfares How many times have you heard the cue bells chiming at the Sydney Opera as you hastily finish your champagne and head back into the concert hall after interval? One probably doesn’t give much thought to the musical content of this bell. The Artology Fanfare Competition looks to change this, giving young Australian composers aged between 12 and 21 the chance to write new 30-second fanfares to assist the existing cue bells. The 2015 and 2016 competition winners were recently announced, and their works are already

being heard in the Sydney Opera House foyers. Each winner was given the opportunity to workshop their composition with leading Australian composer Nicholas Vines, and a recording session with the Australian Youth Orchestra and leading conductor. All of the eight finished fanfares from 2015 that will be heard at the Sydney Opera House this year will be heard in a two-part series to be aired on Fine Music in June. Interviews with some of the young composers and Nicholas Vines will give an insight into the process of writing the fanfares and the inspiration behind the works.

The series is written and presented by Jason Noble, clarinettist and music educator. Noble presented the first instalment of New Australian Music for the HSC that aired on Fine Music Digital in February and which can still be accessed on demand from

One of the world’s best on our doorstep “It was very difficult when I was in America (far from home in France) because I was all the time thinking about my (daughter) Ornella. It was impossible for me to see the beauty around me and I was all the time suffering from the separation… I was alone, I was far away doing pleasure for people but not my daughter.” Now with a new wife and another young daughter, life feels very happy for Alagna. “With the first daughter, I became a little bit older because of the responsibility and with the second one I became younger… something strange like I am reborn, like I open my eyes again,” he says.

Roberto Alagna as Cavaradossi in a scene from Act I of Puccini’s Tosca. Image - Marty Sohl/Metropolitan Opera July marks the first time Australian audiences will get to enjoy one of the most sought after voices in the opera world. Roberto Alagna has been welcomed into the top opera houses including La Scala, The Royal Opera House in London, The National Opera in Paris, The Met in New York. He’s the guy you call when Jonas Kaufmann calls in sick and the Met did just that in January. Alagna had just completed their season in the leading role of Pagliacci the day before. The Met rang in a panic asking him to take on the lead of Manon Lescaut. Alagna is one of the few you can rely upon to rise to the challenge and not just make it through but become one of the major redeeming features reviewers loved the most about the production. “I had five days to memorise the role. After that I had to start directly with the orchestra and the cast on stage. I had Monday to Friday and then it was General Rehearsal,” Alagna tells Fine Music magazine. After more than 60 roles in opera through his career, including two operas that were written specifically for him, you would think the thrill would wear thin but Alagna still feels blessed to be in such a special career. “We have the opportunity to deliver a message to people … An artist is there to enrich as many people as they can. You can bring the message of love and fraternity. Like a prayer, I see it like a communion between the audience and the artist.”

Alagna was already familiar with that communion by the time he began his opera career. Before he hit the big time he was a largely self-taught singer busking on the streets, singing cabaret and pop music in clubs around Paris where he was raised in a Sicilian immigrant family. This career path broadened his appreciation of music, gave him precious stage skills you wouldn’t normally learn in a singing school and he’s well-known for his great generosity with fellow performers, totally devoid of ego. However, he still feels life experience is what really counts in adding depth to the performance. “Everything is useful in opera, you have a lot of things to do. You must play like an actor, you must have the discipline of a sportif. You have to be very comfortable with your body, you have to be able to fight or to do acrobatic things, you must be a seductive lover. All of this can be drawn from life. “I was a widower when I was 29 years old (his wife died from a brain tumour leaving him with a two-year-old daughter) so, I lived out this very, very sad moment with my first wife and in La Boheme, the same situation… With experiences you learn a lot. Otherwise it’s impossible to be a good interpreter if you only have good moments,” says Alagna He says his solid family support is what kept him from losing his mind and they are still very much a part of his life and career.

According to the tenor, the program he’s put together for his Australian tour will be value packed with more than 30 arias plus songs from his Sicilian, French and Neapolitan roots. “For this first time I wanted to give the most I could for the people. If I just come with the classical program where in a typical program you sing six or seven arias and after some encores it’s finished,” said Alagna. “Number one, I wanted to give the most possible… to give a program that is easy to love but with also a demanding program, very full and dense.” Joining Alagna on stage will be young Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg who is establishing herself as a rising star in Europe recently stepping in to take roles with the Berlin Philharmonic and at the Royal Opera House in London. The Australian Sinfonietta Orchestra will accompany at what is sure to be a sold-out Sydney concert. - Annabelle Drumm

Rachelle Durkin plays armida RD: I still put a lot of work into vocal preparation. Whether it’s having a lesson every week, practising an hour or so each day or studying a role with a coach, it’s important for me to be secure in the work I’m presenting on stage. Once I am prepared musically and I have incorporated my characterisation into the piece, there’s a sense of abandonment and freedom once I am on stage. Looking back, I’m lucky to have enjoyed most of the roles I’ve sung. Those that stick out in my mind are Norina in Don Pasquale when I went on last minute for Anna Netrebko at the Met; the heroines in Les contes d’Hoffmann for West Australian Opera; Alcina in a beautiful production at Opera Australia with Maestro Antony Walker, and Violetta for Opera Australia’s HOSH on the Sydney Harbour.

Rachelle Durkin Once again Sydneysiders are to be blessed with a unique Pinchgut production of a rarely performed operatic gem, to star Rachelle Durkin, back in Sydney after acclaimed performances at the Met in New York. Directed by US rising star Crystal Manich, with the Orchestra of the Antipodes performing on classical instruments under the baton of the indomitable Antony Walker, Haydn’s Armida will be a feast for the senses. Fine Music recently caught up with Rachelle Durkin and here are some snapshots of the conversation. FM: It’s fair to say that you have been an international opera artist of the highest calibre for more than a decade now. How do you stay on top of your game and what are the roles or performances you enjoy the most?

FM: As a student from Western Australia, who has gone on to perform at The Met and leading companies around the world, do you ever stop to reflect on how far you have come and how your artistic journey has unfolded? Could you have forseen the directions it has taken? RD: All I have to do is walk outside my apartment in Manhattan and I cannot help but feel an overwhelming sense of pride and accomplishment. I remember working my butt off at the Conservatorium when I was a student at WAAPA, sometimes singing up to four hours a day, much to the despise of my roommates I’m sure. I guess I thought the hard work might pay off in some way, but I never envisioned I’d be living in Manhattan and working at the Metropolitan Opera. Winning the National Council Auditions and becoming a Lindemann Young Artist at the Met has to be one of my proudest moments, second to becoming a mum of course.

FM: How did the association come about and what do you most look forward to in working with Pinchgut on this unique production? RD: I got a call from my agent in Australia asking whether I was free to sing Armida. Once I glazed over the role to see if it was a good fit for my voice, I jumped at the offer. It thrills me that the company shines a spotlight on earlier works. Though I love singing standard repertoire, early music has always been my forte. One of the main reasons is that my voice is very versatile and I’m in my element when singing extremely fast coloratura passages. Much of earlier music repertoire requires this. The role of Armida is a prime example and the piece itself is so stunning. I’m also excited to be working with Antony Walker again and to sing for the first time with the Orchestra of the Antipodes. FM: Haydn’s Armida certainly does show us that love can be a cruel mistress! Does this role demand a lot from you in terms of performance? What do you draw on in order to convey substance in your characterisation? RD: It seems I’ve actually played the role of Armida four times. Handel’s Orlando, Alcina and Rinaldo and indeed Haydn’s Armida are all loosely based on similar storylines from poems written by Ariosto and Tasso. A pagan sorceress seduces a Knight in order to gain ground in war, falls in love with him only to be betrayed. I love the challenge of portraying a villain on stage. Armida has many layers to her character and requires a lot of physicality but there is also a subtlety in moments of her defeat whether it being in love or war. The role of Armida will be a collaboration of my ideas and the ideas of director Crystal Manich. It’s important for me to come into rehearsal with a clean slate and open mind because no two roles are same. Armida will be an evolving process.

Rebecca Gill to premiere three horizons generation of composer continuing this distant cultural conversation.” Looking into the works of Margaret Sutherland and Raymond Hanson was particularly interesting for Gill as she was not as familiar with their writing compared with other Australian composers. “Chris’ compositions were not designed to be played in order, one after the other, so I can weave in amongst them some of the great Australian chamber pieces that may not get quite as much air time as, say, a Brahms Sonata,” says Gill. “I’ve also come across some great works by Stuart Greenbaum and am still exploring what else would make the concert even more interesting and entertaining for my different audiences.” Rebecca Gill Young violinist Rebecca Gill has a very busy time ahead, having used her Kruger Scholarship from Fine Music to commission a new work which she will perform next month. Premiering at Fine Music’s Live from the Joan concert at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Penrith, three horizons actually comprises three pieces for piano and violin composed by Gill’s longtime friend Chris Williams. Gill was also in the process of recording the work at the studios of Fine Music when she spoke to the magazine about what the Kruger Scholarship has so far enabled her to achieve. “Part of my initial inspiration for the program was to look at the relationship between Australian composers and their European forebears. Although some of our cherished composers, like Peter Sculthorpe and Ross Edwards, are famous for trying to find a truly Australian voice, I think the European tradition of composition was an inescapable presence throughout 20th century Australian composition. “When I looked through the work and lives of composers like Margaret Sutherland and Raymond Hanson I felt a strong engagement with English and European composition and also an innate Australian flavour,” says Gill. Chris Williams studied in Oxford and has now made another shift to Washington D.C, explains Gill. “To me he represents a new

Gill has a special affection for chamber music and recital performances as they present an opportunity to express her “musical personality directly to an audience”. Gill graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium in 2013, with a Masters of Music Performance (Research) studying with Janet Davies, and has already toured extensively in Australia and internationally, working with artists such as Pekka Kuusisto, Sir Mark Elder, Elizabeth Wallfisch, Pinchas Zukerman, Gautier Capuçon and Charles Dutoit. She first met Chris Williams at High School in Newcastle and there began a collaboration that continues to the present day. Although, after completion of their studies at the Sydney Conservatorium and Williams’ move to Oxford to undertake a Masters, Gill regretted that they “hadn’t collaborated on a work or in concert before he moved to the other side of the world”. When the opportunity to commission a work came up, through the Kruger Scholarship, Gill immediately thought of Williams: “It’s so exciting to have each come so far from that classroom in Merewether and to be able to finally join forces”. “When I engaged Chris in this commission he was also involved in a project with his long-term mentor and friend, Australian composer Nigel Butterley. Like Chris and me, Butterley has a strong connection to Newcastle,” said Gill. Two of the three pieces within three horizons have been titled after Butterley’s personal

art collection, ‘cloud, ground, trees’ and ‘white, sea, bird’. The third piece’s title was appropriated from Australian poet Michael Dransfield’s Geography Poems, ‘valley’s of the sky (chapels of pure light)’. For Williams, three horizons is “a trinity of trinities”. Its titles celebrate three Australian artists, the work pays homage to “the trinity of Rebecca, Nigel and Newcastle and was itself conceived and composed across three horizons: England, Australia and the USA”. Gill says: “The varied nature of my work sometimes feels a little like juggling but I constantly remind myself how lucky I am to be making this my career. To have your passion as your job must be the ultimate privilege”. - Samuel Moore

The Great Gatsby On Sunday 31 July, Fine Music 102.5 will present Fine Music Live from the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Penrith, a free concert for the people of Sydney. A talented gathering of musicians and ensembles have been specially curated for the occasion and will cover a range of styles and genres that reflect the diversity of the music played on Fine Music 102.5. The top-class performers booked to appear on the day include The Great Gatsby Orchestra (10-piece jazz group); Rebecca Gill Duo (violin and piano) Fine Music’s current Kruger Scholarship recipient; Acacia Quartet (string quartet); Sydney Symphony Fellows (orchestra); The Idea of North (Aria award winning a cappella group); and Gerard Willems (concert pianist). Leader of The Great Gatsby Orchestra, Geoff Power, tells Fine Music magazine: “It’s a great opportunity for us to perform at one of Sydney’s finest venues, and we are proud to be associated with Fine Music. “To the best of my knowledge, we are the only group in Sydney currently playing this repertoire (hot jazz and dance orchestra music from the 1920s), and all the more unique as the average age of the group is 20.” At Live from the Joan, The Great Gatsby will play music by Duke Ellington from The Cotton Club, an Australian composition, a novelty song of the era and some San Franciscostyle jazz. “We believe Fine Music to be synonymous with the best in music… and a joy to work with, and we are very grateful for the opportunities they have given us,” said Power.

as I believe a performance is a two-way relationship between the audience and the performer.” At Live From The Joan, the group will showcase a couple of songs from its 12th album entitled Ballads, along with some more up-tempo and light-hearted repertoire to balance out the concert. “Who knows, you might even get to hear a Michael Jackson number,” says Piper. - Paula Wallace

In regard to his chosen repertoire, Willems says: “These are dramatic and colourful and show off the beautiful Bosendorfer in the hall, which has a great acoustic. “I have recorded a CD for Fine Music in this venue and was smitten with the beautiful atmosphere of the hall.” Willems was actually the Patron of Fine Music some years ago and has since become a sponsor as he believes in the organisation’s mission of sharing fine music. Fine Music actively supports numerous local artists and gives them the opportunity to bring their music to a large listenership through airplay of their albums, interviews and live performances.

The Idea of North

“The Idea of North has been performing now for 23 years and it’s this kind of support that has helped us with our vocation,” says the a cappella vocal ensemble’s bass, Andrew Piper. “Over the years we have enjoyed working with the dedicated team of presenters and crew on a number of projects. “Personally, I have even had the opportunity to present my very own weekly jazz program called A Twist of Jazz back in 2012 and our soprano presents her own weekly jazz program, Friday Night Jazz Session with Sally Cameron.” Piper says the Live from the Joan event, provides the group with the “best of both worlds”. “We will perform to a live audience as well as have our music broadcast to the Fine Music listeners. “Having an audience to work with creates the opportunity for an exciting concert,

By composer david hush

Having devoted a fair amount of my creative output to compositions for strings, over the last 14 years, I have been increasingly drawn to writing for wind instruments. Starting with Three Pieces for Solo Flute in 2002, I gradually progressed to writing solo pieces for other wind instruments, such as the clarinet and the bassoon, moving on to chamber works featuring small combinations of winds.

types of melodic articulation to be heard in Three Etudes yet retains a concise template. Secondly, the most prominent harmonic intervals in Three Etudes are fourths and fifths. Owing to the small instrumentation (three winds) on the one hand and the practice of delegating an independent melodic role to a separate player from those articulating harmonies on the other, each harmony comprises only two notes. In Night Songs, by contrast, with an enlarged sound world of five instruments, the possibilities for harmonic construction based on fourths and fifths are much larger.

Last year I was commissioned to write a new work for the Sydney-based ensemble Windfall. Entitled Night Songs, the piece will receive its premiere on 21 June at the St Andrews Anglican Church, Lane Cove. The title was inspired by Goethe’s Night Song (1804). In particular, the music seeks to capture three distinct sensations evoked, directly or indirectly, by Goethe’s poem: the sense of freedom and release occasioned by looking up at the sky on a starry night; the sense of wistful longing; and the sense of mystery. Founded in 2002, Windfall is a dynamic Australian ensemble devoted to the performance of chamber music, with a special focus on works for wind quintet and winds with piano. Windfall’s collective wealth of musical perception and experience promises audiences vibrant performances and challenging programs, from the music of the baroque and classical eras through to the voices of the present day. On 26 May 2014 three members of Windfall, Jocelyn Fazzone (flute); Teléna Routh (oboe); and John Cran (bassoon) gave the first performance of my Three Etudes at the Australian Academy of Science. The recital was conceived as a symbolic handshake between music and science in Australia, and was presented by Professor Suzanne Cory AC, President of the Academy. Following the warm reception to Three Etudes, the players said they looked forward to working with me again, and added that while they would welcome a new trio, they would be especially receptive to a new quintet. After visiting the ensemble’s website and listening to sound samples, the one that really won me over was their stunning rendition of the overture to The Magic Flute. I found it remarkable that this piece scored for full orchestra - a major achievement in its own

David Hush right - could be played so convincingly by five wind instruments.

Developing Night Songs The new work seeks to develop specific melodic, harmonic and structural traits as featured in Three Etudes. As an example, the first movement of Three Etudes presents antiphony between the flute and the oboe on the one hand and the bassoon part on the other. While the flute and the oboe articulate fifths in parallel motion, the bassoon plays melodies redolent of ethnic Jewish music. In the second movement, the flute and the oboe open with parallel fourths. This provides a harmonic background for two solos courtesy of the bassoon. The oboe part then assumes the primary melodic voice with two solos while the flute and the bassoon play in parallel fifths. In the third movement, the primary melodic role is assigned to the flute. Short motivic fragments set to a fast tempo characterise this part, with the oboe and the bassoon providing harmonic support and complementary motives. In Night Songs, there are three primary ways in which ideas embodied in Three Etudes are developed. To begin with, while each movement of Three Etudes has much to offer melodically, the relative compactness of each movement ensures that all melodic statements are succinct. Night Songs thoroughly explores the

Finally, a striking feature of Three Etudes is the rate at which the roles of each instrument undergo transformation: the role of any instrument, or pairs of instruments, remains fixed for only a short time. In Night Songs, with an ensemble approaching twice the number of Three Etudes, the possibilities of transformation have been considerably enriched. Having been thrilled with the results of the trio’s performance of Three Etudes in Canberra, the prospect of writing for the full wind quintet could not have been more challenging or exciting. I greatly look forward to the first rehearsal with this excellent ensemble, not to mention the premiere performance.

First performed at a benefit concert for wounded soldiers, the Symphony achieved instant and lasting popularity. It is driven by an intoxicating energy in what Wagner described as the “apotheosis of dance”. Composers Gounod and Spohr are better known for their operatic creations, but both also made outstanding contributions to the instrumental cannon. Gonoud’s Petite Symphony is delightful and charming, while the sparkling Grand Nonetto flaunts Spohr’s melodic brilliance.

Webern managed to condense a lifetime of thoughts into these five succinct and beautifully crafted gems that seem to disappear right before our ears.

track The Lark Ascending is impeccably moving, a fantastic choice for the first piece. Zukerman’s playing exudes pure beauty and his interpretation and vision of this piece is beautiful. Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is equally as beautiful. You will be taken on an emotional rollercoaster, transporting you to your own paradise if you close your eyes and let yourself be swept away. We are then taken to the Serenade in E Minor for String Orchestra. Filled with flowery phrases, this is a stark contrast to the myriad of emotions heard in Williams’ works. The second movement Larghetto is a romantic transition from Allegro Piacevole. Listening to this powerfully romantic Serenade, one would imagine a lover longing deeply for a lost love never to return. Salut d’amour is no doubt another

beautiful yet simple piece. The simplicity of Elgar’s works is what makes them beautiful, particularly his melodies which are breathtaking. The final track, Introduction & Allegro for Strings, Op. 47 begins with authority, slowly transforming into an array of beautiful phrases. - Leslie Khang

This CD is built around the violist Nils Monkemeyer, born in 1978 in Bremen. He plays in all the works recorded here with assistance, when required, from Julia Fischer, violin, and Sabine Meyer, clarinet, both of whom are well established artists, and the Korean pianist William Youn who is less well known but is clearly an accomplished player. Monkemeyer himself is an excellent performer. The CD contains at least two masterpieces - the Trio for Clarinet, Piano and Viola K. 498 – one of Mozart’s most beautiful and delightful works, and the Duo K. 423 for Violin and Viola, written to fulfil a commission originally given to Michael Haydn. Here, Julia Fischer’s sensitive and delicate playing is a particular delight. Most of the other works on the disc

are from Mozart’s infancy or childhood and, although characteristic of his style, are too brief to make much of an impact; several last for less than a minute. Of greater consequence, but still not a masterpiece, is the Duet for Viola and Piano (originally written for violin and piano) of variations on Helas j’ai perdu mon amant K. 360. While this disc is worth owning for K. 498 and K. 423, it would have been preferable to have dropped some of the smaller works in favour of the violin and viola Duo No 2 or perhaps even one of the great string quintets which require two viola players.

d’amore), Giordano (Fedora), Lalo (Le Roi d’Ýs), Flotow (Martha), Cilea (Adriana Lecouvreur), Berlioz (Damnation of Faust), Bizet (Carmen, Les Pecheurs de Perles), Massenet (Werther, Le Jongleur de NotreDame) Halevy (La Juive) and Rabaud. The last-named’s aria from Marouf has the advantage of unfamiliarity. Alagna is now 53 and his voice is still in acceptable condition, although it sounds rough from time to time and in any case is not the voice for some of the heroic roles he assumes here such as Radames and Calaf in Turandot. His musicianship and artistry are as impressive as ever. It is difficult to know for whom this CD is designed. Those interested in the

songs are unlikely to be attracted by so many arias and operatic fans are unlikely to want so many songs. The CD will probably be popular with the many fans of Alagna. The orchestral accompaniments are satisfactory and the chorus which joins him at appropriate times is first rate.

Dukas, Bernstein and Shostakovich. This is a unique selection of works as they are all based on famous fairytales, narratives and stories, e.g. Goethe’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Voltaire’s much-travelled Candide or the Russian folklore Firebird. The performance opens with Borodin’s Prince Igor: Polovetsian Dances which is a fun, lighthearted piece. The opening of Stravinsky’s Introduction from Firebird is powerful. This quintet plays with great imagination. Their playing is extremely narrative-like where every detail is essential to the story. The quintet has not failed to portray the quirky nature of the work, particularly in the Variation of the Firebird. We are then transported into a completely different work, the Der Zauberlehrling by Dukas. The diverse tones from all of the instruments

makes this enjoyable to listen to. In Bernstein’s Candide: Overture, the clarinet really shines here, in which we hear the bright and rich tones. The most enjoyable work out of the five is Shostakovich’s Five Pieces for Two Violins and Piano. The first movement, Praeludium, is mellow and beautiful, a quiet introduction to a series of different characters in this work. The Gavotte evokes a childlike playfulness, innocent and simple. We then move on to the Elegie, which is quite the opposite to the Gavotte. The saxophone and clarinet arrangement is beautiful, with a modern take on it. Meyer’s playing is superb and her ability to tell a story is brilliant.

to the pleasure of many of their audiences they appear at various festivals and can be heard regularly on ABC Classic FM and the MBS Network. Mozart and Haydn had a profound effect on the development of the form of the piano trio and it was Beethoven who moved the structure forward. Three of the 12 Trios, the G major and D major were written during Beethoven’s 20s and they neatly contrast with the Bb Trio (Ghost) written in 1808 when he was emerging from his middle period. Lots of lovely Haydnesque and Mozartian moments occur in each work particularly in the lyrical expressive slow movements whilst the outer movements show an appealing energy

with balanced texturing and beautifully shaped phrases. The dramatic opening of the Bb work provides a strong anticipation of the maturer style and reflects the newly discovered decisiveness. The smallest work, the op.11 the Gassenhauer was originally composed for clarinet, cello and piano with the last movement based on a song Before I go to work I must have something to eat.

Jazz CD Reviews Talk To Me Freddy Cole HighNote HCD7225


This 2011 release only reinforces my view that Freddy Cole has long been the natural successor to the baritone balladeering icons Nat King Cole, Billy Eckstine, Joe Williams and Johnny Hartman. Although the octogenarian’s voice is darker and slightly rougher than the above four, he is stylishly sophisticated with a deeply personalised view of jazz singing. He may have some resemblance to his late brother but Cole is very much his own man. Few vocalists have such a broad repertoire described by Cole as “from Broadway to the blues”. As usual the accompanying musicians are of the highest

calibre including pianist John Di Martino, trumpeter Randy Napoleon and his usual group, guitarist Randy Napoleon, bassist Elias Bailey and drummer Curtis Boyd. Harry Allen, filling in for Houston Person who is usually Cole’s first-choice tenor saxophonist on these HighNote recordings, is in superb form especially on the opening and best track, the little heard but lovely and bittersweet Mam’selle from the 1946 20th Century Fox movie classic The Razor’s Edge; Cole’s hushed vocal complements the ballad’s lyrics to perfection. Cole continually finds new gems for his material, less familiar but no less satisfying. Grammy Award winning songwriter Bill Withers, a long time Cole favourite, is represented by three tracks including a mellow You Just Can’t Smile It

Multi-award winning Australian trumpeter, Eugene Ball, has received widespread national and international recognition throughout a professional career that has featured performances with some of the biggest names in improvised music.

with lyricist Lorenz Hart rather than with his later and very successful partnership with Oscar Hammerstein II. Some critics, and I agreed with them at the time, claimed Hart’s lyrics were wittier and more sophisticated than Hammerstein’s despite the sentiment and romanticism of such gems as It Might As Well Be Spring and Bali Ha’i. However, Karrin Allyson takes Hammerstein’s lyrics, which she describes as brilliant and universal, to another level as she pays tributes to him and the genius of Rodger’s music with melodies from four Broadway shows - Oklahoma (five), The King And I (four), South Pacific (three) and The Sound of Music (two).

Personally I wouldn’t have minded an added piano to the ensemble to inject a little more colour and interplay but that tried format would have probably been too easy for the likes of this quartet. The band is successfully engaging without putting such a premium on rhythmic dialogue.

Wild About Harry

The enthusiastic applause fades in the background as I watch Big J shuffling through the heat haze in the lower paddock of my Hunter Valley hideaway, his head to the ground in search of sustenance. I recall the pleasurable look in his eyes when I promised pinot noir in his bowl instead of shiraz if he increased his intake of greens. Meanwhile the applause is Harry James growing in intensity again as I turn towards my sound system revelling in the swinging power of a big band. There have been few more exciting examples of Benny Goodman’s orchestra in full cry than on Jimmy Mundy’s arrangement of Cole Porter’s Ridin’ High from a Camel Caravan radio broadcast in New York on November 9, 1937. Goodman never recorded it commercially although it was the third number played, after Bugle Call Rag and Star Dust, during the opening of his legendary stand at the Paramount Theatre in New York on March 10, 1937 when teenagers jitterbugged in the aisles. No wonder. It would be hard to top this performance in the cold confines of a recording studio. You reach for superlatives to describe Goodman’s clarinet playing in the chase choruses with Harry James whose explosive sound is fat-toned and ferociously intent. Zeke Zarchey, who was replaced by James in the band, said: “Fire came out of that trumpet every time he picked up his horn”. Louis Armstrong, James’ early influence, said: “That white boy - he plays like a jig”. Jazz historian Gunther Schuller said: “The solo work poured out of his horn with a sense of inevitability that no other trumpeter could equal with such consistency”. Add an eloquent jazz style, a passion for the blues and breathtaking execution and you have a unique and great jazz musician. Yet the centenary of his birth (March 16, 1916) has passed without seemingly any comment. How could such a superlative soloist, whose ability was praised by Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Clark Terry, and whose band was popular for more than 40 years be ignored? Admittedly he put his role as a celebrity bandleader first and as a jazz musician second. However, many jazz critics have never forgiven him for that schmaltzy recording, complete with a string section, of You Made Me Love You where his wide vibrato was likened to that of an Italian tenor. It not only sold a million but rescued James from bankruptcy. The string of sentimental ballads that followed and the bravura performances of The Flight Of The Bumblebee and Carnival of Venice drew even more fire from them but they forgot that James also recorded such swinging instrumentals as Crazy Rhythm and Jeffries Blues. Was there a more popular jazz musician? Seventy of his hits appeared on Billboard’s charts between 1939 and 1953. In comparison The Rolling Stones had 56! I must confess that if I had the choice of taking only a handful of trumpet discs to a desert island the first choice would be James’ 1945 recording of Carnival arranged by Billy May. The return of the Count Basie big band in 1952 was to inspire James to the most artistically fruitful period of his career with a band whose

smooth, lightly pulsating swing sound was fuelled by a roster of topclass arrangers including Ralph Burns, Neal Hefti, Thad Jones and especially Ernie Wilkins who did so much to set the Basie sound of the 1950’s. James may have been dubbed the “white ofay” but his band was more than just a Basie copy. It is on hearing these records again that I believe his place in the pantheon of jazz trumpeters and his importance in jazz history should be re-evaluated. A complex personality, he died broke and unhappy. He was a harddrinking philandering loner with a gargantuan appetite for booze who abused his wives even using screen siren and his second wife Betty Grable as a punching bag; a promiscuous womaniser, young and old, all shapes and sizes, it didn’t matter; and he lost a fortune gambling and abused his children. Helen Forrest, the most stylish of the big band singers with whom James had a romantic attachment, said: “He found peace on the bandstand. He knew he was loved when playing the trumpet. He knew nobody could hurt him”. The heavy drinking took its toll and although James did not die young like Bix Beiderbecke and Bunny Berigan, he looked a lot older than his 67 years when he passed away on July 3, 1983. James worked up until nine days before his death, his health ravaged by lymphantic cancer. He didn’t fear death quipping: “It’s just another road trip”.

Broadcasts of YVA semi-finalists continue Fine Music 102.5 will continue broadcasts of the 17 semi-finalists in the 2016 Young Virtuoso Awards throughout June. There will be four performers featured in this month’s program including Gemma Lee, Jared Cheung, Ciaran Edwards-McKeown and Sophie Spencer. On offer are cash prizes, live-to-air broadcasts and a chance to perform with the North Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Gemma Lee - Violin Gemma Lee, 19, currently studying at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, has been a member of the Sydney Youth Orchestra, a member and soloist in the SBS Youth Orchestra and is currently part of the Sydney Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra. She currently plays a 1760 Francois Fent violin. Some highlights of her musical career to date include travelling to Verona, Italy for the chamber music summer course, where she was mentored by the Amaryllis Quartet. “I also enjoyed competing in the Young Virtuoso Award last year as it was a challenging and rewarding experience,” she tells Fine Music magazine. What does Lee bring to this year’s competition? “Open-mindedness and an appreciation of the various works played in this competition,” she says. Jared Cheung – Cello Jared Cheung, 15, is in Year 11 at Barker College and has been studying with Georg Pedersen from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music since 2009. He was awarded the Music Teacher Association (ACT) student award and won numerous awards in the National Eisteddfod as cellist and pianist before moving from Canberra to Sydney in 2012. Having participated in previous YV programs, Cheung has been impressed with the level of expertise and enthusiasm that is demanded by the competition. 20

“I believe that this inspiration is passed along to the performers and helps them reach another level of playing. “I am sincerely flattered to be chosen as one of only a handful of musicians for such a coveted opportunity and I hope I can deliver,” he says. Ciaran Edwards-McKeown - Guitar Ciaran EdwardsMcKeown, 22, studies at the Sydney Conservatorium prior to which he completed a Bachelor of Science at ANU majoring in mathematics and classical guitar. Edwards-McKeown has performed as a concerto soloist in Westlake’s Antarctica Suite for Guitar and Orchestra with the Canberra Youth Orchestra and was a winner of the Melbourne Guitar Foundation’s International Competition. He says the YV award is a great chance to gain exposure as a young artist through a respected broadcast platform and to gain experience recording in a studio environment. “I’ve tried to balance my program with music from different parts of the world to show off the versatility of the guitar in a variety of musical styles,” said Edwards-McKeown. Sophie Spencer Trumpet Sophie Spencer, 17, is a student at Abbotsleigh and studied piano, violin and viola before at age seven commencing trumpet lessons. Spencer has won many Awards and Championships and has been a member of the Castle Hill RSL Youth Wind Orchestra for the past seven years. “I entered the Young Virtuoso Award as the competition offers musicians the opportunity to prepare and perform a diverse collection of works from different styles to an appreciative radio audience. “It means a great deal as not many brass players are chosen,” she says. - Judy Deacon

Fine Music’s Young Composers The last program to be broadcast on Young Virtuosi this month is a selection of compositions, to herald the Young Composer Award 2016 which closes for entries on 15 July. Back in February, young composers were given the opportunity to broadcast their works. Following the success of these two broadcasts, we will again feature works that display a huge variety of styles and instrumentation, demonstrating the skill of young creatives. Fine Music is also offering composers the opportunity to have an orchestral piece performed through its Young Composer Award. In partnership with Willoughby Symphony Orchestra, entrants this year are required to write a Clarinet Concerto. With prize money and performance prospects on offer, it’s an opportunity that young composers will not want to miss.

SILVER CIRCLE RECIPIENTS ANNOUNCED had to fly by the seat of his banker’s chair and develop a system for membership, for subscriptions and for payment of goods and services from the accounts of an organisation that few people believed existed. His electronic hardware was a calculator. No computer, and hardly any desk space to do his job.

David Rumsey, on the other hand, was a numbers man when it came to such an association with J.S Bach. Rumsey’s was the first real voice on air, at high noon on 15 December 1974. The transmitter power at that time was not that great and so not many people heard his dulcet tones emanating from their hi fi sets. David Rumsey was “discovered” via the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. l-r: David Rumsey & Howard Cocks David Rumsey and Howard Cocks were recently honoured as Silver Circle recipients in recognition of their long-standing support of Fine Music. Back in the days when almost nothing was digital, two of the founders of the fledgling radio station 2MBS-FM were toiling away, each in their own areas of expertise. Howard Cocks worked in a bank. Therefore, without argument, Trevor Jarvie appointed him Treasurer. It was a similar scenario with another founder, Doug Keech. Automatically he became Secretary to the Cooperative because he typed his membership cheque. Cocks was charged with setting up the accounts for the Society and managing the funds of the radio station. There were no accounting models to call on; there was no known precedent at the time so he

For over 25 years, until 1998, he was the regular organist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and as such frequently presided over the Grand Organs of Sydney Opera House and Sydney Town Hall. His associations with multimedia events have included performances of the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony to 100,000 people with the orchestra in the Sydney Domain (via a micro-wave link - the organ was several kilometres away in Sydney Town Hall). In 1998 he wrote, produced, acted and performed in a highly successful 14-hour musical and dramatic spectacle on the life of J.S Bach, with actors in period costume from the National Institute of Dramatic Art, and musicians playing period instruments. In March 1999, after some 20 years as Head of Organ and Church Music at Sydney Conservatorium, he resigned his Senior Lectureship at the University of Sydney to travel around Europe, USA and Canada where he gave recitals and master classes.

June program highlights in the heroic 3rd, had audiences heard such orchestral forces perform music of such outrageous vigour. Never before had Beethoven’s ability to make carefully-crafted music sound extemporaneous, restless and rough-hewn been so felicitously employed. This Sunday Evening Concert offers the contrast of an early Haydn symphony Symphony in G, Hob.I:8, subtitled Evening – with the mighty 7th, the latter courtesy of Nicholas Harnoncourt, a conductor whose interpretations of Beethoven have earned widespread acclaim. The two symphonies book end a delightful violin concerto by Beethoven’s contemporary and respected friend Louis Spohr, a fine composer whose career had the misfortune to coincide with that of the greatest musician of all time.

Artist of Choice – Crispian SteelePerkins

Marin Marais


9 June, 8pm The Marais Muse The world of the viola da gamba is quite a small one. Compared to the fiddle family, for instance, gambaists are small in number, and those who make the instruments even fewer. When the great gambaist Wieland Kuiken toured Australia some years ago, he did so without his viol, and made arrangements to borrow instruments in all the cities he visited. In Sydney, he had arranged to use Jennifer Eriksson’s, and when he picked it up and tried it he was struck by its quality. Well, it was an Ossenbrunner, and Kuiken was astonished to find one of these celebrated instruments in Australia. Since then, it has been joined by another, purchased by Daniel Yeadon. Both Eriksson and Yeadon are principal members of members of the Marais Project, a Sydney band dedicated to celebrating the music written for and around the viol family of stringed instruments. The viols are fretted instruments, and although they resemble the violin family in appearance, they are in fact quite differently constructed. The greater power of the fiddle eventually saw it eclipse the viol, but not before a considerable body of work had been written especially for its particular sonority. Much of that music was written by Marin Marais (1656-1728) a Parisian violist, and his instrument’s foremost composer. He was a true Frenchman, disdaining the usual terminology of his craft and giving his pieces idiosyncratic names. 22

In Live and Local, on 9 June, The Marais Project pay due respect to their eponymous muse, with three dance pieces from one of his many books of viol music named, in typical Marais fashion: Mennet Musette (plus gai), Muzette (gracieusement et doux) and Double. To conclude the program, Elaine Siversen has included a Fine Music recording of Marais’ Variations on Les folies d’Espagne.

Sunday Night Concert

12th June, 7pm If Beethoven was the master of the symphony, Haydn was incontestably its father. He picked it up as a short three movement work, ancillary to a theatrical production. In his hands, and aided by the unusually lavish orchestral resources made available by his aristocratic employer, the symphony grew in stature, along the way acquiring a fourth movement, and altogether outgrowing its adjunct status. Beethoven was fastidiously respectful of the skills of masters such as Handel, Bach, Mozart and Haydn, and of the forms they bequeathed to music. But he had an equal belief that his duty as an artist was to stand on his predecessors’ shoulders, not merely to emulate their work. He set out, not to supplant the traditions of music with shocking novelty, but to inhabit them more fully than any predecessor, and to take them as far as his prodigious musical imagination would go. The trajectory of the classical symphony thus reached its apogee with the 7th Symphony of Beethoven. Never before, not even

Diversions in Fine Music 28 June The trumpet is an instrument with a convoluted history. Like all members of the brass family, it started off as a plain tube, able, in principle, to play harmonics only. Various ways were tried of liberating the instrument from this rather arpeggiated existence. Simply doubling its length gave access to the much smaller pitch steps of the upper register, and with prodigious skill at pitch-bending, virtuosi could achieve quasi-chromatic results. Slide trumpets were apparently made, but these initiatives led to the trombone, and the trumpet didn’t get a fully chromatic voice until the advent of valves in the late 18th century. The valve trumpet was embraced with understandable enthusiasm, and the skills of the natural trumpet player fell into disuse. The historically-informed performance movement of the latter half of the 20th century brought a revival of interest in the older trumpet forms, and in the timbral character of the older instruments which the modern trumpet struggles to emulate. The English trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins has done much of the heavy lifting in this project. With a collection of over 100 historic trumpets, he has assiduously studied his instrument’s past through its music. In Diversions, Rebecca Zhong has collected performances which include the ground-breaking Hummel concerto and Steele-Perkins’ signature piece, his performance with Kiri te Kanawa of Handel’s Let the Bright Seraphim. - Tom Forrester-Paton
