Fine Music Alumni This month, we’re including two stories following the careers of gifted sopranos who gained early exposure in Fine Music 102.5’s Young Performer awards. In the first, Randolph Magri-Overend talks with our cover star, Jessica Pratt, who is enjoying fame and accolades in Europe. The other, I had the pleasure of interviewing, is Göknur Shanal. After winning many international awards and on the threshold of a brilliant career, Göknur left the music world for several years. Now she’s back and determined to “go all the way”. More Accolades for Conductor Carolyn Watson Another rising star of Australian music, Carolyn Watson (who we’re proud to have as an occasional music-travel writer for this magazine) was recently presented with the Brian Stacey Award for emerging Australian conductors - a part of the Helpmann Awards. It was a unanimous decision amongst the judges, and you can find out more about Carolyn’s win and career on Sydney Symphony Big Day Sydney Symphony’s Catherine Hewgill has a coffee with our own Henry Mendelson, but despite his cajoling the cellist gives nothing away ahead of this month’s announcement of the symphony’s 2014 season. But, on Saturday 17 August, you can tune in to 102.5 (or listen online) and all will be revealed. You’ll hear interviews with the Symphony’s key personnel including chief conductor designate David Robertson and, if you’re lucky, you could pick up a major prize. Live Broadcast On 30 August, you’ll find we’re putting our new performance studio to work with a LIVE broadcast from Studio C as well as a live outside broadcast with the Sydney Conservatorium Big Band. Flashback to the Amazing Peter Dawson Going back to the early half of last century, Derek Parker takes a look at the colourful career of baritone Peter Dawson. “The Australian Balladeer” recorded more than three thousand songs and sold over twelve million records Meet Touring American Pianist Jeremy Denk Mark Della-Libera talks with Jeremy Denk, one of America’s most admired pianists. Known for sharp, vibrant performances, Denk will tour with the Australian Chamber Orchestra this month and the schedule includes dates in Sydney (see our What’s On pages for more).

Simon Says… Dear Listeners and Subscribers to Fine Music 102.5, Just a short note to thank you for donating so generously in response to our “end of financial year” appeal. As of writing, $19,000 has been raised. We are truly humbled by this gesture of support and as always, your support is validation for the station to continue doing what it loves providing round-the-clock fine music to Sydneysiders and beyond. In the end, it is the mundane realities of financial support that allow Fine Music to go beyond what is everyday or commonplace in all of our lives. As patron, I am so excited to be a part of this station’s family, in a time of real growth and the type of challenges that come with such a logistical feat. Your continued support does, and always will, have a cumulative effect in the hearts and minds of Australia. – Simon Tedeschi, Patron, Fine Music 102.5 Same Old Operas Lyndon Terracini in his article “Voice, Voice and More Voice” (July magazine) ends by saying, “It’s an exciting time to be creating opera in this country.” It’s certainly NOT an exciting time for opera-goers! Where are the operas by Haydn, Respighi, Tippett, Hindemith, Messiaen, Ginastera, B A Zimmermann and Henze - to name but a few. And, what about Shostakovich’s “The Nose” - The Metropolitan Opera in New York is doing this (see the advertisement on page 18 of the July magazine). While Opera Australia keep doing the same old operas, and adapting them (including to make them relevant to today - John Bell knows all about that), and will NOT become adventurous, you won’t see me going anywhere near the Opera Theatre! - Dan MacLeod Looking for something a little more interesting I recently discovered your channel while looking for something a little more interesting. I’m 25 years old and love a wide variety of musical genres from heavy metal to pop and rock but I have now found that my favourite genres by far are classical and jazz. Just wanted to say that I love the station and have become a very regular listener. I’m usually in between channels but 102.5 is generally playing something that I really enjoy. I particularly love the Friday jazz and the more interesting classical pieces with harpsichords and guitar. I came to the website to see if I would be able to find some of the music I had heard and was surprised to find such good records of music being played. Thank you for this service! I will put it to good use. - Scott Saxby Keep up with all matters musical - check out Fine Music’s Facebook page -

THE WORLD AT HER FEET Some 11 years ago Jessica Pratt was one of the aspiring talents who gained broadcast exposure through the 2MBS (now Fine Music 102.5) youth development programs. Now the much lauded young coloratura soprano performs in Europe’s most important theatres and festivals – often accompanied by a lucky dog called “Federico” - and it seems, that for Jessica, the sky is the limit. Randolph MagriOverend talks with the young star in the wake of her recent prestigious Siolo d’Oro win. On Monday November 20, 2002 Veronica Crowe, Young Performers’ Competition coordinator at 2MBS, announced from Studio C: “Today I am pleased to present soprano Jessica Pratt who will sing a selection of lieder, arias and songs from around the world. Jessica’s associate artist in this recital is Tahu Matheson.” Jessica went on to sing Brown Pansies by Ann Carr-Boyd, Die Lotosblume, Opus 25 No 7 by Robert Schumann, Gretchen am Spinnrade by Franz Schubert, La maja y el ruiseñor from Granados’s opera “Goyescas”, Donde Lieta from Puccini’s “La Boheme”, Dove sono i bei momenti from Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro”, The Embroidery aria from Britten’s “Peter Grimes” and finally Pleurez mes yeux from Massenet’s “Le Cid”. Jessica reached the semi-finals of the competition. The following year, Jessica Louise Pratt won the Australian Singing competition; in 2007 she won the Vienna State Opera Award, the Rome Opera Award and in May of this year was awarded the prestigious Siolo d’Oro, a prize bestowed every two years for outstanding coloratura sopranos commemorating the memory of Lina Pagliughi, the Italian soprano.

that threatens “…atocareer equal the feats of

Dame Joan Sutherland..

Today Jessica is one of the most sought-after sopranos in Europe and on the threshold of a career that threatens to equal the musical feats of the great, late Dame Joan Sutherland. The New York Times recently hailed her as a soprano of “…gleaming sound, free and easy high notes, agile coloratura runs and lyrical grace.”And all in 11 or so years. Jessica was born in Bristol, England in 1979 to Phil and Ronnie Pratt. At the time Phil was a tenor at the Welsh National Opera company but the

Jessica Pratt as Lucia di Lammermoor at Genova. Photo - Marcello Orselli family emigrated to Brisbane when Jessica was 11. Phil is currently a singing teacher but finds that most of his time is taken up managing a staff of 18 full-time teachers who cater to the musical needs of 800 students at Summer Hill’s Trinity Grammar School in suburban Sydney. “Jessica was a wonderful child,” he recalls. “She was the type of toddler that you could leave playing with her toys and hours later, when you looked in on her, she was still playing with them.” In addition, as a six-year-old she would do singing exercises that some adults would have difficulty with. She and her brother (who now sings with a rock band called “Drawn from Bees”) would compete with each other to be the first to guess the notes in a chord, would harmonise a song endlessly and “drive me crazy with their singing while I was driving.” Jessica’s other interests have included the welfare of animals and at one time she flirted with the idea of becoming a vet. As part of a work experience she helped out as a vet’s assistant but soon gave up any thoughts of going beyond that when she realised that part of her duties would be putting down animals. At 14 she went through a phase of working at McDonalds, a fish and chip shop and at Officeworks in Sydney (where the manager

promised to keep her job open after she left for her first trip to Europe). She later worked “ a secretary for the English and Maths department at Trinity Grammar School [dads can be handy - my words not hers!] in the David Jones department store and as a clown on weekends painting children’s faces at parties.” But Jessica’s ambitions were always focussed on achieving a career in singing. Except for a year at the Sydney Conservatorium’s Opera School where, according to Phil “they tried to pigeonhole her into the type of singer they wanted her to become”. Jessica spent most of her time either being tutored by her father or, according to her, “taking private lessons in anything that would help me as an artist, for example languages, stage work, dance, movement, the Alexander Technique and so on.” Before allowing her to take singing lessons, Jessica’s father insisted she play the trumpet mainly to help her with her breathing and later, when she joined an orchestra, to help her in working closely with other musicians. The latter has proved an invaluable grounding especially now she has “to sing accurately with other singers.” However, after 10 years of tooting, the trumpet was forsaken following “a lot of tension in my throat.” August 2013

“I moved to Rome and have lived in Italy ever since,” Jessica continues. “I studied for about six months and then undertook master-classes with Renata Scotto at the Academia di Santa Cecilia for a few years.” What Jessica doesn’t mention is that she lived in Italy for five years without work. The money ran out and all she had left was the return plane ticket to Australia. She spent months sleeping on friends’ couches, but was determined to stick it out. “I wanted to make myself known in one country and then go to other countries,” she explains. Eventually, in 2007 she was awarded the Vienna State Opera Award by Opera Foundation Australia and after living in Vienna for a year moved back to Italy, to Milan this time where she started studying with Lella Cuberli with whom she still prepares for various roles. Seduced by its beauty, Jessica now lives on Lake Como. But, alas, she only enjoys the lakeside home “for about two months (of the year) …I feel like I am on holiday. It is only half an hour by train to Milan.”

Her favourite non-classical singers are Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra. “I don’t often listen to opera as I can’t relax while listening to it. I either become too technical or cry because it is so emotional. So if I want to relax I put on some jazz and Ella and Frank have a daily presence in my life.”

“ A dog called “Federico”

Besides singing, Jessica’s other great love is a handicapped dog named Fede (short for Federico). “Fede comes touring with me in Italy. In certain cities like Venice and Naples we always stay in the same houses so that it feels familiar to him. However when I sing outside of Italy he has another family in Como with whom he stays, as he is quite old and has lived most of his life in a dog kennel before I adopted him two years ago. The family in Como have been there from the beginning and are wonderful to him. Fede is quite a character - he was physically abused and abandoned, so in the beginning he was not well and took a while to come out of his shell, but he is fine now - he has even grown a lovely coat of fur. When I got him he was bald from stress and missing most of his

Jessica made her professional debut in “Lucia di Lammermoor” in 2007 at the Teatro Sociale in Como and says she cried for a week after it was over. She has since sung Lucia in Berlin, Tel Aviv, Naples, Venice, Genoa, Florence, Skopje, Zurich, Bologna and will sing the role in a new production at La Scala next year. Currently Jessica is in Seville singing Gilda in Verdi’s “Rigoletto” with Leo Nucci in the eponymous role. She has also sung the Queen of the Night in Mozart’s “Magic Flute” at Covent Garden and in May next year will be appear in Melbourne as Violetta in the Victorian Opera production of Verdi’s “La Traviata”. However, she feels more at home singing Donizetti and Rossini and has recently sung the role of Matilde in Rossini’s “William Tell” with Juan Diego Florez in his native Lima, Peru. The conductors she has worked with include Kent Nagano, Christian Thielemann, Daniel Oren, David Parry, Donato Renzetti and the late Sir Colin Davis. 6

Jessica’s big break came when she caught the eyes (and ears) of Gianluigi Gelmetti, then artistic director of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. At the time he was adjudicating a singing competition which, oddly enough, Jessica didn’t win. According to Phil Pratt, Gelmetti disagreed with the judges’ choice of winner and invited Jessica to join him at the Rome opera. Money was a problem because the invitation did not carry a bursary. Fortunately, a couple who belonged to a choir that Jessica sang with as a soloist offered to fund her studies with a contribution of $40,000!


teeth. He has only one eye, is cardiopathic, anaemic, partially deaf and has a smashed leg which just hangs there, but he uses it in an odd way to walk as the injury happened many years ago and was never treated. In Italy he is well known, has free access to the theatres and comes in my dressing room with me when I rehearse and sing. He doesn’t cope with being left alone so he is either with me all the time at home, or in the theatre. Last year I remember a performance of Lucia where we had four dogs in the theatre! There was Fede who slept through the whole show in my dressing room, a little puppy in the makeup department, a big puppy with the stage hands and the maestro’s dog in the dressing room next to mine! Italy has a very dog-friendly culture.” And in case you’re wondering what type of music Fede enjoys, Jessica adds: “Bruce Springsteen was starting his world tour in Naples in Italy when I was singing there last month and the piazza he was performing in was just opposite my balcony so I sat outside for the evening and enjoyed the show!” However, Fede went to bed early “he only seems to like opera!” - Randolph Magri-Overend

The Dynamic Jeremy Denk Pianist, Writer, Intellectual

Jeremy Denk is a pianist and writer from New York. He has fronted most of the major orchestras in his home country and tours regularly, and has established himself as a unique, dynamic voice in American music. He hosts a long-running and popular blog called Think Denk, has written for the New Yorker, the New York Times Review of Books, the New Republic and a long list of others, and is working on a book, based on his experiences of growing into a musical life, slated for publication by Random House in the next couple of years.

Are we? I am, and Denk’s approach moves me. His dualism is subtle and inclusive, and it comes as no surprise that he wins acclaim both for eloquent craftsmanship and for emotive intelligence. Dialectic - between brain and heart, solitary and social, awareness and engagement - characterises much of our discussion. There is a vast legacy of western thought and art informing Denk’s perspective, and though my first impression is of an essentially rationalistic,

When I ask how he approaches the relativities of meaning that are part of any interpretive exercise, he describes breaking a score down into parcels small enough to be intelligible, and amassing these insights until a personality emerges. And it does, inevitably, emerge. This is the synthesis of the scientific method with revelation, each impelling and describing the other. Denk calls it “a kind of weird nerdy faith,” and I think in those few small words, he’s spot on.

score is both a book and a “ Abook waiting to be written.

And he’s articulate. He is telling me about how his friend, cellist Steven Isserlis, maintains a structural awareness of the whole, the minutiae of which Denk himself can find too tempting to explore: “I am often ashamed because I let myself get seduced by a couple of beautiful moments - a heartrending change of harmony, a witty turn, a particular colour - to the extent where I forget to consider some of these organising elements. I think this paradox or tension between moments that you love, that you don’t want to let go of, that are completely absorbing in and of themselves, and a larger story that needs to make sense is one of the absolutely key ingredients to an interesting or beautiful performance. I have no idea where it comes from, but I guess I’m addicted to traveling back and forth between thought and experience, between the intense moment of feeling and reflection on it.  Isn’t everybody?”

Jeremy Denk. Photo - Michael Wilson empirically critical thinker, the truth is that there is clearly something of the romantic, and perhaps even the mystical, that Denk finds in the in-between places that he loves to explore.

In the context of all this dualistic tension, to divide music and writing along lines of heart and mind is a tempting oversimplification. The more I learn, though, the more apparent it becomes that the two outlets really coexist in a much more intricate entanglement, where Proust and Nabokov have as much to say about how music should be realised, as words can be taken as aesthetic elements of rhythm and timbre. “A score is both a book and a book waiting to be written.” At his best, I think Denk sees past the artificial limitations of form, be they of music or the written word, and appreciates the elusive, unadulterated human experience that precedes them. That he is able to bring that experience

to such persuasive song is as much the result of dedication to betterment as it is the raw building blocks of talent and capacity. Jeremy Denk likes to think, and to express, and he’s gotten to be very good at both.

is not the notes but the “Music relationship between them..

He also has a degree in chemistry: this is a man whose varied intelligence (not to discount hard work or passion, of course, both of which have been as central to Denk’s success) might as easily have seen him pursuing a career in academia, or in literature or journalism, as playing Ives for a packed Carnegie Hall, and it’s easy to suppose that he might have been as distinct a voice in the university or the press room as he has proven to be on the stage. He really is celebrated as much for his mind as for his fingers, and between his music and his writing, he is shown to be of wide apprehension and penetrating insight, capable of demanding technicality and heartfelt expression alike.

“Another thing I say to myself very, very often while practising, to spark possibilities, is a mantra of my old teacher Sebok: the music is not the notes, but the relationships between them.” His repertoire bears out this idea: Denk is known for taking on works that are at once rich in sentiment and technically demanding. After all, what is an interesting voice if it has nothing to say? This, I think, is why Denk’s critical acclaim seems to come from so many angles at once - and also why he seems especially susceptible to praiseful, but ultimately insufficient, distillations of what truly makes him remarkable. He is attracted by art that has in common - in his own words - perversity and tenderness, generosity and ingenuity. The mental and physical dexterity Denk brings to bear on that moment between perception and expression has marked him as a powerfully articulate performer, and what is to be found at the intersections of Denk’s influences and inspirations are the whimsy, and the profundity, of art and life.

The Dynamic Jeremy Denk Pianist, Writer, Intellectual global figure, his Americanness will be a happy incidental; the impetus will be something much more catholic.

Whatever phrase gets “ played the most beautifully

will be the highlight.

In August, with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Denk will play nine concerts in six Australian cities. Opening the program is Richard Tognetti’s arrangement of the Goldberg Variations, but details are thin: “they are a trade secret, I think.” From Bach to Nancarrow to Ives (including the Concord Sonata), back to Bach and onto the concluding Brahms Piano Quintet. Denk won’t be drawn into predicting a favourite moment, though: “Whatever phrase gets played the most beautifully will be the highlight.” I like his answer a lot, but inasmuch as I was hoping to learn something about his modes of speculation, I am foiled. I try again: what are you expecting of Australia? Jeremy Denk. Photo - Michael Wilson He is known for championing Charles Ives, whose 1919 Concord Sonata has been a career-long favourite with Denk’s audiences across the States. In Ives, “there is tenderness and nostalgia for Beethoven, hymns, ragtime, sentimental ballads, a whole motley world of music that Ives lived in and loved - fused with perversity of course, Ives mashing up all the things that don’t seem to belong together and making a peculiar and American sense of it all.” There’s that Americanness again. Ives is another quintessential American, famously an insurance salesman, whose accomplishments as a composer were underappreciated in his lifetime. He was a pioneer of polyrhythm and polytonality, whose music achieved a complexity considered sophisticated even alongside the Olympian, if hitherto intolerant to the point of hostile, canon of European art music. Ives unites virtuosity with vulnerability, and as a twenty-first century acolyte, Denk seems a perfect fit.

is proud of Denk, “ America and rightly so..

Next year, he will be Musical Director for California’s Ojai Music Festival, where he will premiere the opera buffa he is writing now, “the first and last opera ever written about musical analysis.” I imagine Denk enjoys the challenge, enjoys setting himself to the task of corralling and defining moments of intellect through music. He laughs. “You try to figure out what the Subdominant chord would say if she had an aria!” I think I’d better not. 8

America is proud of Denk, and rightly so. He is much of what is best in music, an affable intelligence compelled to neither selfaggrandisement nor self-deprecation where either is at the cost of integrity; an extraordinary talent, given to finding what is interesting, good and beautiful in the merely suggested, and bringing it to shared, communicated, lived existence. He is confident but approachable, authoritative but earnest, and if anything the insistent spotlight on his Americanness is double-edged, a disservice not to Denk but to the universality of what ultimately inspires and engages all music, and all art. Perhaps he knows that. He is already well received in London, that cultural bridge between the US (and Australia) and Europe’s ancient traditions, and amidst heavy touring across North America in the first half of this year, he performed with the Slovenian Philharmonic in June. I’m supposed to be detached, of course, but I find myself rooting for Denk, having conquered the States, to tackle Europe. The Americanness that Denk represents - whatever it finally is - is surely an improvement on many of the vulgar typecasts that plague that country’s identity right now. Not that America has anything to prove to Europe, I suppose; in the end it’s probably an indefensibly private prejudice that I prefer Denk’s openness and clarity to the righteousness and indulgence that are so often, and often unthinkingly, attributed to American culture these days. Nevertheless, Denk has much to offer to the non-English speaking world, and if he does become a truly

“I have no idea what to expect. Many of my friends love it there, and I’m sure I will too. I’m supposed to have a “flat white,” apparently— although I’m not sure how it’s different from a latte. I’ll say that I really like my Australian friends and acquaintances here in America but I cannot remotely figure out what qualities they all share that makes them likeable.” I suddenly realise that I’m just as guilty of pushing the nationality agenda. The answer, I realise, is: some kind of Australianness, I suppose. - Mark Della-Libera See What’s On pages for details of Denk’s concerts with the ACO

THE MELLOW CELLO OF THE SYDNEY SYMPHONY Enjoying a coffee with Catherine Hewgill on a sunny winter afternoon, in the knowledge that next year’s Sydney Symphony season program was to be announced in August - well after press time for this issue - journalistic frustration set in. No amount of convincing, coaxing, even abject cajoling was able to break down the curtain of confidentiality surrounding the details. The best the respected leader of the orchestra’s cello section was prepared to let slip was the promise that the line-up of artists for 2014 will be as exciting, if not more so, than the remaining names on the Orchestra’s roster before Christmas this year - they include the Labèque sisters, Pinchas Zukerman and Simone Young. Some Sherlockistics however brought to light the fact that American conductor David Robertson’s plans for 2014 include a series of innovative projects with the orchestra. These involve another annual opera-in-concert, no let up in international touring and exciting commissions of new works.

innovative era “ Another in the making…

Vladimir Ashkenazy’s successor, already well received in his four preliminary appearances with the Orchestra, assumes the post of Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Sydney Symphony in January next year. Hewgill’s take on Robertson was upbeat to say the least, foreshadowing yet another innovative era in the making. As for more of what this will entail, she smiled: “we’ll just have to wait and see”. That said, the highly respected cellist paid huge homage to the effect that the Ashkenazy years have had on the Orchestra which in her early years she recalled as not reflecting today’s dynamic ensemble in terms of its professionalism and work ethic. While acknowledging the contribution to this transformation of the early and sadly shortlived Stuart Challender years and the strict baton wielding regimen throughout the Edo de Waart decade, it was for Ashkenazy’s five year tenure that Hewgill reserved her major acknowledgement. “Of all the conductors I have worked with, he was the one who brought an incredible knowledge of music, and an ability to impart that knowledge to the orchestra, even though he may not have the most refined conducting technique. “He is such a modest man and we are going to be very sad when he leaves”, she stated. On a day which marked a Hewgill ‘round’ birthday, some reminiscing during our

Catherine Hewgill. Photo - Keith Saunders. conversation was to be expected. Adelaideborn into an “amateur music” family and Pertheducated, she was introduced to the ¾ cello by a tutor called (don’t laugh), Mr Bean. Graduating to a full size instrument, the fledgling cellist began her serious studies in Perth under WSO veteran, Jill Cole. In 1978, accompanying her academic father to the UK, she undertook a year’s study at London’s Royal College of Music with cellist/author, Eileen Croxford. Next, to the US, where Catherine (she prefers Katie) auditioned at, and was accepted by several music schools, including the Juilliard, but opted for the University of Southern California (USC) which brought her into the orbit of the man she nominates as her all time cellist great. “His is a total command of the instrument who can make the cello the powerful instrument it

really is. He has everything in place,” Hewgill reminisced about Mstislav Rostropovich. “He taught me how important it is to analyse what you are doing; to think about everything while you are playing and I was lucky enough to have a series of lessons with him.” Having won the Hammer-Rostropovich Scholarship at USC, a performance in a recital at the Second American Cello Congress was followed by a stint with Padua’s I Solisti Veneti, one of the first rank of small Italian chamber orchestras. This for a young Australian, barely in her twenties and not knowing the language, was a daunting prospect. It came about seemingly naturally; having gone to a Padua Music Festival, she fronted I Solisti’s Claudio Scimone and asked to audition. There followed a protracted period of touring throughout Europe with the Paduans. August 2013

CATHERINE HEWGILL: THE MELLOW CELLO OF THE SYDNEY SYMPHONY Such credentials in her cv opened the doors of the Australian Chamber Orchestra on her return to Sydney in 1989 which led, via a fleeting stint in the Opera and Ballet pit, to the SSO’s cello section which she has led for the past two decades. One of the highlights of her incumbency has been the sponsorship by private philanthropists of her Carlo Tononi cello made in Venice in 1729.

change in today’s “ The culture Sydney Symphony..

Hewgill describes the Orchestra she joined in 1989 as a shadow of that which Sydney audiences acclaim today - “When I first joined, the orchestra was made up generally of older musicians than today’s members. There was not the culture of really working hard and wanting to make things better.

Asked to nominate the most memorable concert of her comprehensive career, she revealed herself as the workloaded orchestral musician she is by admitting that none stood out because as one ends, the next one needs total concentration. And while she can lay claim to acclamation for concerto performances of works by Haydn, Elgar, Boccherini and Brahms, she is also an active chamber musician who received enthusiastic reviews – among many – of Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Among the multifarious Hewgill career highlights are her 2003 tour of Japan with the Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa and Michael Dauth performing the Brahms Double Concerto and in 2011 playing principal cello in the inaugural concerts of the Australian World Orchestra - the unique undertaking masterminded by Andrew Briger which feature over 100 leading Australian instrumentalists drawn from leading world ensembles such as the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, Chicago and London Symphony Orchestras, to name but a few.

was fine, but “ My Icello was in pieces.

Regrettably, all cannot be listed as highlights. Indeed, the lowest of lowlights literally crashed Katie Hewgill’s career in November 2008 when, in the Sydney Opera House car park, for no accountable reason her legs gave way from under her. Instinctively she shielded her treasured 300-year old cello, which a Sydney Morning Herald report described as being “worth the equivalent of a small Sydney house.” “I held the cello above my head as the rest of me went flying through the air,” she recalled. “It must have looked very dramatic. I landed with the whole weight of the cello and my body on my left hand, the one which does all the fingering, crushing all the bones in my wrist.” The cello, protected by its heavy case, was undamaged. “Not a scratch. Still in tune. My cello was fine, but I was in pieces.” An orchestra colleague who came to her rescue was not slow to realise that for a cellist such an injury could mean the end of a career.

“People then were not as dedicated as (is the case) today which has a lot to do with the influence of a wider range of world-recognised conductors who have been prepared to come to Australia. Also of course, Australia has become much more internationally focused on the rest of the world.”

There were bits coming out everywhere,” Hewgill told the Herald at the time. “I went into hysterics and screamed all the way to the hospital. I remember saying, ‘How can I break my wrist? I’m a cellist.”’ The following morning, knowing her professional life could be over if an operation failed, the orchestra arranged for her to be seen by Sydney’s leading wrist surgeon. It was to be another 14 months before Hewgill played professionally again. And it was only when she made a triumphant return to the concert stage in late 2002 that her surgeon let her into a secret. “He told me that he had thought I would never play again, though he hadn’t told me that at the time.” Was the accident a blessing in disguise? She admits that after her recovery there was more introspection. “I thought about things better, not taking anything for granted. In a way, as long as my wrist holds out, it was perhaps not quite as bad after all.” An anxious cinematographer husband still worries - five years after the accident - when he sees his wife chopping onions or cutting through a hard chunk of cheese. Says the mother of a 16-year-old ballerina hopeful daughter and a 13-year-old typical teenager son: “I love cooking. My favourite place to be is in the kitchen.” Which is perhaps a somewhat bravado expression of domesticity when, truth be known, she would in all likelihood prefer the front row chair on the conductor’s right which she has occupied since her early SSO years.

It is to the influence of the numerous conductors over the years and their individual contributions that Hewgill credits the culture change in today’s Sydney Symphony. Each incumbent, whether benign in nature or authoritarian, has brought some refining element to the development of the Orchestra, she noted, citing the example of Charles Dutoit’s ability to pick an orchestra up and take it one level further in a short period of time. “I really admire that”, she said. What of the next level for Catherine Hewgill? What do the next five-ten years hold? Questions of this nature evoke a wistful smile and a determined response. “When I first took this job I thought ‘maybe five years’ - that was in 1990! “Looking to the future, I would still like to be here actively, trying to do better because you never stop learning; never stop trying to sound better; never stop trying to make your section better.” It is a fortunate section which has Catherine Hewgill in its principal’s chair. - Henry Mendelson SYDNEY SYMPHONY DAY Tune in to Fine Music 102.5 on Saturday 17 August 2pm - 6pm for the Sydney Symphony special showcasing latest recordings plus interviews with conductor designate David Robertson, performers and orchestra management.

THE AUSTRALIAN BALLADEER more than three thousand songs “ Heandrecorded sold at least twelve million records.

Dawson was the son of immigrant Scottish parents, his father an ironworker and plumber, and his career really began when, after singing in an Adelaide church choir, he won a prize for the best bass solo in a competition at Ballarat. In 1903, at twenty-one, he landed in London and in top hat and tails knocked on the door of the famous baritone Charles Santley, who was near the end of a notable career and soon to be knighted. Santley took him on as a pupil for four years, concentrating particularly on oratorio at a time when Messiah, Elijah and The Creation were regularly performed all over England. Dawson, newly married to a professional soprano, Nan Noble, needed to earn a living. Fortunately, early in 1904, Fred Gaisburg came to London on behalf of the Gramophone Company (later H.M.V.) to record Patti, Chaliapin, Gigli and Melba (to say nothing of Tennyson, Browning, Florence Nightingale and Queen Victoria). Less notable, but one of the most active of the early recording artists, was Peter Dawson. A wax master cylinder recording produced only a few copies before becoming useless, so Dawson sang into the huge recording horn for six hours a day, five days a week to produce master after master, earning the considerable sum of £75.

Meanwhile, at Covent Garden, he studied the maestros of his craft: great singers such as Tita Ruffo and Édouard de Reszke, and made his own debut at the opera house in 1909 singing Wagner. He could clearly have made a fine career in opera, but it simply didn’t suit him - “Too much work for too little pay,” he said - which may explain his downfall when performing in Meistersinger at Covent Garden, he accidentally scattered all over the stage the coins he had won playing poker in the wings. Though he sang German Lied with distinction (Schubert, Brahms and Richard Strauss at the Wigmore Hall with the fine accompanist Gerald Moore), his favoured repertoire on the concert stage was drawn from the popular pieces of the day: Handel favourites (“O ruddier than the cherry” and “Arm, arm ye brave”), a little Mendelssohn, and popular operatic arias such as Iago’s credo from Otello and “Even bravest heart” from Faust – which Gounod had written for Dawson’s mentor, Santley. But he and his public, especially those who bought his records, loved the extrovert fervour of the favourite ballads of the day – “Roses of Picardy”, “Drake’s Drum”, “Up from Somerset”, “Boys of the Old Brigade”, “On the Road to Mandalay” and of course “Along the road to Gundagai” and “Waltzing Matilda”. He took part in the earliest recordings of the Gilbert and Sullivan Savoy operas, and one of his greatest successes was a song written by Katie Moss after a visit to Helston in Cornwall: “The Floral Dance” sold more discs than could readily be counted.

rubbish “ Don’tlikeeverthatsingagain!

When in the early days of recording an executive from Zonophone Records asked a young baritone if he could “sing Scottish”, there was no hesitation. The young man not only obliged with a Scottish ballad, but donned a kilt and a wig and played the Glasgow Coliseum for twelve weeks as “Hector Grant, the Scottish Balladeer”. No-one knew that he was really Peter Dawson, born in Adelaide, South Australia.

On a train journey from London to Margate one day he was reading a collection of Kipling’s poems and, as he read one of them, found himself setting it to a tune: We’re foot-slog-slog-slog-sloggin’ over Africa Foot-foot-foot-foot-sloggin’ over Africa (Boots-boots-boots-boots movin’ up an’ down again!) There’s no discharge in the war! He introduced “Boots” - “a song by J P McCall” - at a Henry Wood Promenade Concert in 1928. “Don’t ever sing rubbish like that again!” said Sir Henry. But Dawson ignored him; Kipling liked the setting, and Dawson made a small fortune from his recording. Eventually he was honoured by the Guinness Book of Recorded Sound as one of the ten top recording artists. He recorded more than three thousand songs and sold at least twelve million records. In the 1920s he was eagerly taken up by 2LO, and broadcast from its first studios (with the celebrated notice: COUGH AND YOU WILL DEAFEN THOUSANDS). He went on singing for the BBC until the 1950s and became one of the first “radio stars”, his picture appearing in magazines advertising cigarettes - “No throat irritation” - and bedtime drinks - “Horlicks and I are old friends.” He made many world tours, returning time and again to Australia, and went on performing until the very end - in January 1961 he sang at Adelaide in a concert for the Australian Broadcasting Commission. He was seventy-nine years old, and died eight months later. - Derek Parker

Lyric soprano Göknur Shanal is one of those rare human beings who not only has a prodigious talent, but a keen intellect, a spiritual backbone, a strong sense of social justice and it’s far from all talk with Göknur. An active fundraiser for charities like Médicine San Frontier`es, she is also a role model for young Muslims and the Turkish community. She’s a voice waiting to be heard - on many levels.

Born in Brisbane to Turkish migrant parents Göknur, now 35, was one of five children. She was raised in Wollongong by her mother Kadriye who then, as a single parent, worked in factories to support the family. From a home where music permeated the walls, Göknur, could sing before she could talk. But while growing up, there was little money to spare for the luxury of singing lessons and so, she turned to the world of philanthropy, of scholarships and awards, to develop her gift. The passion for music as a vocation runs in the family and her cellist-playing mother would later become a music teacher and Hasan, Göknur’s twin, would follow a similar path which today sees him head of music at Balgowlah Boys High.

Göknur is a soprano gifted “with a voice of great beauty... she has the ability to hold an audience with both the intensity of her performance and her musicianship. - Richard Bonynge

At a time when all the signposts pointed to a brilliant career - early accolades at the top level, academic qualifications including study at the Sydney Conservatorium, London’s Royal College of Music, New York’s Met, and having drawn support from the late, great, Dame Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge, Göknur withdrew from the music world and did not sing a note for five years. During that time she went through what she describes as a “very low period of her life”, the reasons for which she chooses to keep private. But now Göknur is back and this time intends “going all the way.”

days were wonderful, stimulating. After that, I won the McDonald’s Operatic Aria where they adjudicated. Then we exchanged a few letters and kept in touch for a while. I found them both down to earth people, unfazed by what was happening around them.”

Göknur Shanal As a 20-year-old, Göknur was a finalist in the Fine Music 102.5 Young Performer Awards (then 2MBS) and earned multiple high level acknowledgements. To name a few - the Australian Singing Competition, Dame Joan Sutherland Scholarship and Award, Metropolitan Opera Award (New York), McDonald’s Operatic Aria, Queen’s Trust for Young Australians, Symphony Australia’s Young Performers Award Vocal Category, Australian Music Foundation Award (London), Countess of Munster Scholarship (London) and the Lorelei Prize at Neue Stimmen International Singing Competition (Germany). She had taken part in master-classes with Dame Joan Sutherland and Richard Bonynge, Sir Thomas Allen and Roger Vignoles, among others. Recalling her first meeting with Dame Joan, Göknur says, “She saw me and said ‘hmm, you have been receiving all sorts of awards named after me. I’ll see you inside…’ Those ten

Before her self-imposed exile Göknur, who has an extensive repertoire, appeared as a soloist with major symphony orchestras in Sydney, West Australia, Melbourne and Adelaide and had sung the lead role in OzOpera’s La Boh`eme in 2004. The years away from music have not been lacking in life’s milestones. She is now the mother of two boys, Aoun six, and Murad five, and while juggling infants managed to add a law degree to her scholarly qualifications - in April she graduated from University of Western Sydney. As a resident of Sydney’s west, she also finds time to support the AFL’s Giants typical , some might say, of her support of the underdog. The long road back … Her path back to singing professionally began in earnest towards the end of last year when words of encouragement from people whom she holds in high esteem made the big decision clear and gave her the much needed support. The first encounter, says Göknur, was at a recital attended by renowned former contralto Lauris Elms. “She came up to me and said ‘why aren’t you singing with Opera Australia?’ I told her that there had been a good five years when I had not uttered a note. From then on she asked me to come over to her house and kept a look out for me.” “You’ve got to sing. Please!” Another major inspiration arrived in November in the shape of internationally acclaimed accompanist and vocal coach, David Harper, whom Göknur had known since her youth. “He came to Australia and I decided to go and sing for him. He is one of those rare souls with heart and one of those people I completely trust.  He told me that when he heard me at 20, he felt that I was one of those phenomenons that comes along once in a lifetime - then in the middle of

the session he suddenly shouted, ‘You’ve got to sing! Please...’ It was strange hearing these words from someone like David. He re-instilled belief in myself. I made the decision then. “ Göknur has also drawn strength from her former lecturer - adjunct Professor of Law at University of Western Sydney - the Hon Brian Sully QC. A former Justice of the Supreme Court of NSW, and one of the country’s great legal minds, he also has a great passion for music and spends half the year travelling Europe and North America to attend major music festivals and opera seasons.  His advice was that there would be little reason why she could not sing and pursue law. Life’s counterpoints.. Law has provided a balancing counterpoint to her musical life. “Law has always intrigued me and when I took a break from singing and started a family, I took the opportunity [to study law]. Law can be a vehicle for greater altruistic reasons. It is a part of everyone’s lives on a day to day basis. It provided me with intellectual stimulation - a world outside of singing, which can be insular and isolating. It was also something I needed to prove to myself - that I can be good at something besides singing. Let’s face it, music is important, vital for the betterment of mankind. It is crucial for the development of young minds, but it doesn’t save lives like medicine does. Law and music allow me to activate both parts of my brain! “Arts are creative pursuits and spirituality allows me to give conscience to my creativity. It reminds me to stay humble and honest and remove the ego from my work. It is very easy to become self-

Göknur with the Hon. Brian Sully QC gratifying and ego-driven in the music industry. I am a spiritual person whose foundation is rooted in Islam. The famous Australian soprano Amelia Farrugia and I feature in a book about our relationship with our religion.” Complementing this strong spiritual foundation, Göknur has a humanitarian mindset - already a fund-raiser for her beloved Médecins Sans Frontières, she is looking to facilitate more aid initiatives through her connections in the legal and arts professions. And no doubt, she’ll use any future success to leverage more support for her various causes. Göknur’s endeavours to re-ignite her budding professional career are in part a desire to follow through on unfinished business as well as a craving to once again be a part of those special moments - such as singing with

Sincerity has an important place in performance and in those she’s admired. A style of opera that appeals in particular is verismo “for its honest, real stories and characters.” Honesty comes up again when talking of singers she admires - she looks for “honesty in their work” and for this particular quality names, among others, Dame Joan, Jessye Norman, Arleen Auger, Barbara Bonney, Krassimira Stoyanova and Maria Callas. For now, Göknur’s honesty stretches to her own prospects which she describes as “uncertain”, but she is upbeat about the possibilities and will leave no stone unturned as she undertakes auditions with the likes of Opera Australia and the Queensland Symphony. This month sees her perform in Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with Lotte Latukefu and in September she’ll be heard in a recital series for the Willoughby Spring Festival. She has also been invited to sing in a concert commemorating Dame Joan’s birthday on 17 November. If all goes to plan, and determination pays off, we can expect to hear a lot more from this voice of great beauty with the character to match, “I had stopped singing just as my singing career was beginning” says Göknur. “This time around I am going all the way.” – Lizzie Herbert

The answer comes in the listening, and Duncan lays out the cues she has found, demonstrating that the nature of Butterfly Modernism is far removed from easy explanations, or any chamber music you are likely to have heard before. This is music in the abstract, a whole different artistic form from music as in melody, though audibly sharing the same principles.

You may very well develop an appreciation of why the two musicians also use their CD notes to describe Berkeley as “accomplished, creative and respected” in his own time, without a word about his music being on the mournful side. Not a bit of it. You may even like it, and decide for yourself that on the contrary he was unduly neglected when it comes to composers worth listening to. He was an individualist, and this complete set of sonatas and other works, written in a two-decade period between the early 1930s and early 1950s, comes to life in the way it is presented here that makes it hard to ignore, regardless of what those rather discouraging words might suggest.

find themselves capturing spirits from places as far apart as Tibet and Iceland. None of them sounds quite the way you might have expected as a result of anything you may have encountered previously, but they each indicate how Butterfly Modernism takes the idea of traditional constructs like quintets, quartets and duo sonatas about as far away from the easy listening school of music as you are ever likely, or want, to go. If music of this type is acceptable to your ears, and you had been wondering why there seems to have been so little of it in recent years, this brave commitment by Eve Duncan and her expert ensemble is one you will find rewarding. - Phil Vendy

known ones, like Baranowski and Igudesman. In a world where such as Kennedy and Rieu have come to rule the violin roost, here is a more than welcome reminder of what the instrument sounds like when played for the sake of its potential for subtlety, rather than the intention to impress with virtuosity and volume. Sensitive playing here from all the performers. Hope and his colleagues find their level of musical expression a little way above easy listening, adapting their technique to these multiple composers, with a selection that glides smoothly from one item to the next, while the quality of this DG production keeps you listening in anticipation of what is going to come next. A nice CD to have and play, without needing any special effort. - PV

✶✶✶✶ The Brahms Sonatas for clarinet and piano have always been controversial and it is better to admit that many people simply cannot stand them, finding them banal and devoid of musical interest. Like much of Brahms’s chamber music, they seem more suited to the quiet confines of domestic or chamber performance and accordingly may make little effect in the concert hall. Listening to them this year in June, I found them the ideal music for a wet,

SCHUBERT: SYMPHONY NO 8 “UNFINISHED” Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra/ Sebastian Lang-Lessing ABC Classics 476 4740


First of all, as an advocate of classical music stimulating and feeding hungry minds with higher powers and nobler sentiment, I am a wholehearted supporter of what this CD markets. Whether it actually works, I would like to believe so, otherwise my lifetime’s devotion to classical music is nothing more than a ‘fad’, and whether this CD in particular is effective, is debatable, but what is not debatable is that this double CD of mostly obscure classical pieces is an absolute delight and a treasure trove of winners. Every track is performed by Australian musicians of the highest calibre. The very first track is an excerpt from Handel’s Water Music but Graham Abbott’s conducting makes it sound fresh and new and

wintry day. Of the two, the first is probably the most approachable, because of the vigour of the third and fourth movements. Nevertheless, both of them have a quiet melodic charm and are expertly written for both instruments. Heard after the Brahms Sonatas, the Schumann pieces immediately suggest that, even at this late stage of Schumann’s life, inspiration came more easily to him than it did to Brahms. The transcriptions for clarinet and piano of three Brahms songs - Ach, wenden diesen Blick, Es traumte mir and Unbewegte laue Luft - make pleasant enough makeweights, but would be heard better in their original form. It would be difficult to imagine more sympathetic and capable performances than those offered here, the only drawback being the obtrusive clicking noises made by the clarinet mechanism. The

Once again it is gratifying to note that a recording can emerge from Tasmania that is competitive with the world’s best. The performance of the Unfinished Symphony has excellent tempos, great transparency and excellent woodwind and other soloists. The same is true of the excerpts from Rosamunde and it is pleasing that the conductor has included the dramatic allegro moderato Ballet Music, which is not often heard (although it would have been even better had he included some other excerpts that are almost never heard). He is particularly successful in avoiding sentimentality in the more familiar andantino Entra’cte. In view of the excellence of these performances, it would be sensible for ABC Classics to give us this orchestra in more

‘authentic’, which backs up my belief that it is not the instruments which decide the music’s greatness, but the quality of the performance. Other pieces that I would like to draw to your attention as unjustly neglected gems are: Wedding Day at Troldhaugen by Grieg orchestrated by Huppertz and Tobani, March of the Trolls also by Grieg, Mussorgsky’s Gopak from Sorochinsky Fair, and an outstanding piece that no one knows anything about: Ippolitov-Ivanov Procession of the Sardar. The other 33 tracks are, I promise, relatively obscure but well worth being introduced to, making this CD duo a deserved ABC collector’s item, further enhancing the ABC’s reputation for quality music. - Richard Wong

adventurous repertoire. It is clearly capable of providing something other than often recorded classics. Its chief conductor is now Marko Letonja from Slovenia. Could he not give us some Eastern European music not generally heard in Australia? The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra has already recorded much Australian music and many Romantic piano concertos but perhaps it could go a little further afield. Perhaps some music by Franz Schreker which Letonja has conducted in Europe? I must protest, however, against the practice of printing notes in faint, small type against a green background which makes them almost impossible to read. - Richard Gate August 2013

JAZZ CD REVIEWS Discourse with Kevin Jones

INSPIRATION George Benson Concord Records 7234268

✶✶✶✶ popular music’s most acclaimed ballad singer. Benson was a good guitarist whose popularity overshadowed his instrumental talent although I must admit Benny Goodman did make him swing. But even a crusty old curmudgeon like me can recognise class when he hears it - and this is a remarkable tribute and heartfelt album of the highest class, book ended by Mona Lisa, one of Cole’s greatest and arguably his most famous “hit”. It is sung first by an eightyear-old Benson on ukulele in 1951 who, at 70, closes the album, sounding uncannily like Cole, his voice soothing and lush. A labour of love,

Benson spent four years touring and developing this album which reprises the original Riddle charts and others developed by Randy Waldman who conducted the impressive Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra which provides beauty (Nature Boy) and swing (Dance Ballerina Dance). Unforgettable, given gentle samba treatment, has an impeccable trumpet solo by Wynton Marsalis and Till Bronner is poignantly supportive on Smile. Only 13 tracks! I could have wished for another half-dozen but hopefully there will be a follow-up. Even better, reissue some of Cole’s best albums.

Washington Monument because of the large crowd, found both Bennett and Brubeck at high points in their careers - the former with his big “hit”, I Left My Heart In San Francisco, and the latter with his exceptionally popular Take Five. It was still fresh and this thrilling version is one of the highlights of the quartet’s fournumber set which opens the disc. Bennett, after six numbers with his trio, spontaneously joined Brubeck’s rhythm section for an unrehearsed jam on four numbers, showing the then affinity between jazz and popular music. Despite Down Beat magazine praising Bennett’s improvement as a singer, in contrast to its criticism of the lamentable standard of popular music, it would be 10 years before he would be heard at his best in a jazz context as he showed with Bill Evans and Stan Getz.

Historically important as the vocals were, the real meat is in the performances by the Brubeck quartet, especially the Latin-inflected Castilian Blues in 5/4 time.

The jazz life is strewn with myths. Take those concerning Billie Holiday and Lester Young who made musical love together in he 1930s, resulting in some of the greatest jazz ever recorded. Some critics claim Young’s greatness ended when the tenor saxophonist left Count Basie’s orchestra: you only have to listen to airchecks when he re-joined Basie in December, 1943 for several weeks, the trio session with Nat King Cole and Buddy Rich in 1946, and another date with Oscar Peterson in the 1950s to end that argument. So it was with Lady Day. Forget her recordings for Norman Granz’s Verve label from 1945-1959 was the cry. Admittedly some LADY SINGS THE BLUES of her Verve recordings verged on the pathetic Billie Holiday Universal (Verve Jazz Club series) 9841964 like at the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival when she was only a pitiful parody of herself. But

her 1956-1957 sessions with admirable backing from Harry Sweets Edison, Ben Webster, Jimmy Rowles and Barney Kessel (Ill Wind and One For My Baby) still remain among my favourite records. Buck Clayton, who was on the great 1930s sessions - the greatest jazz-vocal records ever made - believes the difference between them and her Verve output was like that of a girl and a woman, one who had been used and abused. And it shows - the torments of her personal life and the dissipation through addiction to alcohol and drugs. But no matter what condition she was in, Holiday approached each song on a highly emotional level with a voice on these recordings which was now mature and darkened. This was a voice of someone who had lived.

Both the late Nat “King” Cole and George Benson have one thing in common. Their vocal talents eclipsed their earlier fame as instrumentalists but there the similarity ends. Cole was a great jazz pianist before becoming

SWINGING ON THE VINE Z’One For My Baby . . . ”

The day had started so well but as I said to (Not So) Little J as I filled his bowl with an awardwinning shiraz in my Hunter Valley hideaway: “How can a gnarled old reactionary like myself win?” Earlier I had walked into the homestead to be confronted by my insufferable brotherin-law Clifford with the latest in designer stubble telling The Voice about his venture into television karaoke.

more than 50 years ago only one of them was dedicated to a lyricist rather than a composer or composer and lyricist - and that was Mercer. Recorded in 1964, it was probably the best of the bunch although the playing time was poor. Only 13 tracks but Mercer’s astonishing gifts with language are well illustrated, especially on Midnight Sun. And there are other examples - the seemingly so casual lines on Day In, Day Out or Something’s Gotta Give; the marvellously evocative, of time and place, sounds and scents, of Early Autumn; his gift for light-hearted themes and lyrical style (Too Marvellous For Words); and the world weary introspection of One For My Baby (And One More For The Road).

“What, can’t afford razor blades?” was my cheerful remark. I ignored The Voice’s withering glare as Clifford gushed about the new show he was producing called You Wouldn’t Believe It! “Aptly named,” was my comment when told the songs would be written and sung by 10-year-olds, adding that the lyrics would make those of the 1956 atrocity Ape Call sound like something from a Gershwin classic. As I trudge back up the hill, again in disgrace, to find solace and sanity among my numerous bottles of red with the sound of The Voice’s fond remarks - “savage, barbarian and Neanderthal” - still ringing in my ears, I ponder the continual dumbing down of society in this instant-gratification sound-bite world where the quality of journalism has decreased dramatically - where the technology is designed to let you select only the news you care about; where trivia has more importance than substance. (Not So) Little J looks at me expectantly as I choose a bottle of wine from my rack. How can I disappoint him as I fill his bowl. He burps in appreciation with piggish delight. It’s a great vintage and I couldn’t wish for a better accompaniment to a rich red as it slides down my throat than to hear trumpeter Roy Eldridge’s opening half-chorus as he lightly insinuates the melody before Anita O’Day’s lovely vocal on the 1941 recording of Skylark with Gene Krupa’s Orchestra. It was to become a big “hit” the following year through recordings by the orchestras of Glenn Miller and Harry James and vocalists Dinah Shore and Bing Crosby. Forget them! Krupa’s is the classic recording. It was originally written by Hoagy Carmichael for a musical to be based on the life of his deceased friend Bix Beiderbecke. The melody was based on the legendary cornetist’s solos,

Johnny Mercer at least the phrasing, hence the original title Bix Lix (Bix Licks). The musical was never produced so Carmichael gave the melody to Johnny Mercer who rang him back several months later and sang the lyrics of the song now called Skylark to him over the phone. Carmichael had forgotten he had even written it! Skylark is one of the greatest melodies ever written, Mercer’s lyrics rich with imagery as they support the changing moods of the song with such descriptive lines as “a meadow in the mist”, “a valley green with spring”, and “a blossom-coloured lane”. Mercer was the master of his so difficult craft, writing lyrics for more than 1500 songs and winning four Academy Awards - The Atcheson, Topeka and the Santa Fe (1946 with Harry Warren), In the Cool, Cool Of The Evening (1951 with Hoagy Carmichael), Moon River (1961 with Henry Mancini) and with Mancini again in 1962 with Days Of Wine And Roses. He once described writing lyrics as easy as chopping wood. “Usually the title or simple idea comes first and then the rest of the words just fall into place”. When working on both melody and lyrics, he would write a few words then pound out the melody with his onefingered style on the piano. When Ella Fitzgerald recorded those wonderful songbooks for Norman Granz’s Verve label

The Mercer family plot in the Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah, Georgia, is shaded by a live oak hung with Spanish moss. Engraved on a marble bench near Johnny Mercer’s crypt is a couplet from arguably the most enduring of all his songs One For My Baby (And One More For The Road). “Buddy I’m a kind of poet, And I’ve got a lot of thing to say . . .” For many years Mercer was infatuated with actress and vocalist Judy Garland with whom he had a stormy relationship during a number of on-again off-again affairs despite them both being married. It’s been said the lyrics to Skylark described his longing for her. Mercer told a friend he wrote I Remember You in 1942 for Garland. “I had such a crush on her I couldn’t think straight so I wrote the song.” The following year One For My Baby (And One More The Road) bemoaned his loss of her. These beautiful melodic songs, an important part of the Great American Songbook, will last forever. How can I salute this genius of the lyric who died in 1976 at the age of 66? I stagger to my feet, raise my glass, and bellow (scattering wild life in all directions) from In The Cool, Cool Of The Evening . . . “When the party’s getting a glow on, ’N singin’ fills the air, If I ain’t in the clink, And there’s sumpin’ to drink. You can tell ‘em, I’ll be there” - Patrick D Maguire August 2013

The Florestan Trio FLORESTAN TRIO: 16 YEARS OF MUSIC MAKING Sunday Special Sunday 4 August 2pm “The ensemble is without flaw; its attention to detail is scrupulous and its phrasing is sensitive to the core.” - Palm Beach Daily News, 12 March 2008. Such words were among the many reviews praising this champion group, the Florestan Trio. In a career spanning 1995-2012, they are one of the most-recorded piano trios in the world. Their recordings on Hyperion have received outstanding reviews and all their discs have been nominated for Gramophone Awards, with their Schumann disc winning the award in 1999. In addition to Florestan’s once obviously busy recording schedule, the Trio also ran its own summer festival in East Sussex, UK, where they featured alongside guest artists of international stature. The Trio also set up The Florestan Trust, a charity that promoted many educational activities, including the commissioning of new works and the encouragement of aspiring young musicians. Throughout its 16-year history of tremendous achievement each individual member of Florestan also managed to nurture distinguished solo careers. Sadly in 2011, having recorded almost every piece of music written for Piano Trio, and with growing tensions between the group, their career paths diverged. The violinist Anthony Marwood went on to develop his solo and directing activities. Cellist Richard Lester now performs with The London Haydn Quartet as a soloist and is the principal cello with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. And pianist Susan Tomes now pursues solo engagements and chamber music projects, as well as writing and broadcasting. In January 2012, the Florestan Trio played their last concert at Wigmore Hall in London, performing a Beethoven cycle of three concerts to packed houses.

A WHOLE LOTTA FELICITY A Lot of Lott Friday 9 August 11.30am Lott Sings Wednesday 21 August 11.30am This month two of our programmers have gone bonkers for the English soprano and for good reason, so we thought we’d remind ourselves of the many achievements of this most beloved soprano. Dame Felicity Lott was born in Cheltenham, into a family of amateur musicians. From an early age she learnt piano and violin, and took singing lessons. However her real love was the French language and she went on to study a degree in French and Latin at Royal Holloway College, University of London, with a vague idea of becoming an interpreter. Little did she then know she would go on to become one of the world’s top sopranos. In 1975 Felicity made her debut at the English National Opera as the delightful Pamina in Mozart’s The Magic Flute. In the following year she began her long relationship with Glyndebourne in the role of the Countess in Capriccio and in 1977 she appeared at the Festival for the first time, as Anne Trulove in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress. She went on to appear at all the great opera houses of the world: Vienna, Milan, Paris, Brussels, Munich, Hamburg, Dresden, Berlin, New York and Chicago. Her many roles have included the Marschallin (Rosenkavalier / Strauss), Arabella (Strauss), Christine (Intermezzo / Strauss) Countess Almaviva (Le Nozze Di Figaro / Mozart), Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte / Mozart), Ellen Orford (Peter Grimes / Britten), The Governess (The Turn Of The Screw / Britten), Lady Billows (Albert Herring / Britten), and Blanche (Les Dialogues des Carmelites / Poulenc). Conductors she has worked with on the opera stage include Andrew Davis, Bernard Haitink, Vladimir Jurowski, Carlos Kleiber, Antonio Pappano and Simon Rattle. Felicity’s love of French, and that early degree she undertook in the language really do shine in her performances of French song. So perfected are her performances that she has been awarded the title Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and the Legion d’Honneur by the French government. Back at home, she was made a CBE in the 1990 New Year

Honours and, in 1996, was created a Dame Commander of the British Empire.

Aurora, goddess of dawn; kidnapped Cephalus when he was hunting and seduced him. Cephalus pined for Procris so an angry Aurora sent him back. Cephalus tested Procris by seducing her in disguise. Procris fled to the forest but returned bringing a magic javelin that never missed its mark, which she gave to her hunter husband.

Micaëla, a country girl, seeks Don José, a corporal. Cigarette girls come from a factory, including Carmen, who rejects male advances, but throws a rose at silent Don José. Micaëla gives José a letter from his mother. In a factory struggle Carmen stabs another woman and José must take her to jail. Carmen flirts with him, he allows her to escape and is jailed. At an inn, the bullfighter Escamillo propositions Carmen who rejects him. Carmen persuades José to desert and join her smuggler friends. On their march to the border, Carmen becomes tired of José’s jealousy. Carmen foretells death in the cards. Micaëla tells José his mother is dying and they leave, but José vows to return for Carmen. She however follows Escamillo to the bullfights in Seville. José returns and, when Carmen refuses him, stabs her. 23:00 ACADEMY TRIO Recorded by FINE MUSIC Debussy, C. Trio in G (1880).
