Cellist Daniel Müller-Schott is in high demand throughout the musical world and Fine Music Magazine’s Henry Mendelson was privileged to speak with the young German ahead of his visit to Australia and his keenly anticipated guest artist spot on the ACO2’s first national subscription tour. ACO2 is a pet project of Australian Chamber Orchestra’s Richard Tognetti – it draws together some of the country’s best young string players and ACO musicians. You’ll find details of the upcoming Sydney leg of the tour in our What’s On pages. Another German heading this way in June - this time for a star turn with the Sydney Symphony - is violin virtuoso Arabella Steinbacher who’ll be performing in Spellbound: Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. She talked with writer Mark Della-Libera who was himself somewhat spellbound by the remarkable violinist with a big heart. In her mouthwatering travel-cum-music story, vivacious Australian conductor Carolyn Watson re-visits Budapest - a city that has had a significant influence on her life’s musical journey. Closer to home, there’s been some great news on Chandos Street. After three years of working from temporary premises, Fine Music 102.5 aired its first broadcast from new state of the art studio complex on 1 May, with all studios now set to be operational by open day - 2 June (see details below). For presenter Andrew Dziedzic the changeover meant a mid-broadcast dash across the street from old premises to new while Gerald Finzi obliged with his 41 minute Cello Concerto to keep listeners entertained during the move. With the skilful planning from a volunteer technical team headed up by Max Benyon, and hands-on from Roger Doyle and Rob Tregea, the switchover over was achieved with zero seconds of downtime. It was the tail end of a monumental feat of organisation and engineering. Over $700,000 has been invested in new broadcast equipment and installation and the new premises boasts two prime on-air studios, three production studios and a live performance and music recording studio. Keeping a radio station technically sound takes major investment and for that Fine Music can thank its listeners for their gifts and bequests – small and large, they all count. The new set up ensures that Fine Music can broadcast to a high audio standard for many years to come on normal FM and the newer digital service. So, stay tuned!

Over recent times we have been sad to report on the deaths of the following prominent musicians: conductor Sir Colin Davis aged 85, baritone George Beverly Shea 104, soprano Cecilia Smiga 38, guitarist and composer Stephen Dodgson 89, cellist Janos Starker 88 and ballerina Maria Tallchief 88. Among those recently departed was Tommy Tycho, the Hungarian born Australian musical personality - Tycho was honoured in a one hour special broadcast presented by Julie Simonds at the end of April. Tycho spent three years (1948-1951) as the personal pianist for the Shah of Iran. He met his future wife, Eve there and they both emigrated to Australia in 1951. Attracting much attention have been International Opera Awards recipients who include Jonas Kaufmann (best male singer), Nina Stemme (best female singer), Sir Antonio Pappano (best conductor) and The Cape Town Opera (best chorus). In time for the coronation of Holland’s Willem-Alexander there was good and bad news for composer John Ewbank. His song entry for the coronation was initially accepted, rejected as being too EurovisionContest-sounding, and then finally overwhelmingly re-instated.

Come Back 1963 ..an uninterrupted cocoon of pleasure..
But 1963 sticks in my mind as a particularly good year – and memory suggests that apart from the performances of the “great” visiting singers, the home teams put up some extremely good work, and not only at Sadler’s Wells in the dear old building, immeasurably more friendly and comfortable than the appalling one which replaced it in the ‘90s. In February of ’63 there was an Aida at the Royal Opera House, for instance, with Amy Shuard in the title role, Charles Craig as Radames and Peter Glossop as Amonasro – three artists whose names, now, one never hears, though Glossop was a magnificent Verdi singer, renowned in London and New York. And it’s not only “local” artistes who are more or less forgotten. Who, now, recalls Gré Brouwenstÿn, whose Leonore I heard at Glyndebourne in May singing opposite Richard Lewis? She was back, later in the year, in Don Carlos with Glossop and Nicolai Ghiaurov. Brouwenstÿn was a fine dramatic soprano with an excellent acting technique: now not even chronicled on Google.
..Brouwenstÿn a fine dramatic soprano: now not even chronicled on Google…
Why d’you want to queue for that rubbish?
The second London visit of the Bolshoi ballet meant a couple of nights sleeping rough on the pavement outside the Garden’s booking office, people stepping over one as they left performances – and porters from the market, then still surrounding the house, giving one some grief. “Why d’you want to queue for that rubbish?” we were asked. “Well, you’d queue for a football final,” we replied. There was a pause. “Ah – but then you get a result.” There was no answer to that. Later, at performances, we gypsies failed to recognise each other in best bibs and tuckers rather than old clothing wrinkled by two nights in a make-shift tent and smelling of kippers cooked over a primus stove on the pavement at six in the morning.
It’s only music..,
Two memorable new works during the year, out at the Wells, were Richard Rodney Bennett’s The Mines of Sulphur – a great success in Europe and America, and revived in New York in 2004 - and Malcolm Williamson’s brilliant version of Graham Greene’s Our Man in Havana – wonderfully entertaining with its Cuban habaneras and mock Viennese waltzes. I believe it has been revived in Australia, but certainly not in my time here. (Even better are English Eccentrics and The Violins of St Jacques. Come on, Opera Australia!) Thinking back, the real glory of the year came at its beginning, with the first London performance of Britten’s War Requiem with the soloists for whom it was written, Galina Vishnevskaya, Peter Pears and Tom Krause. The Albert Hall has many faults, but the Requiem sounds marvellous there, with the tremendous march to Armageddon in the Libera Me thundering out, the sound of the boys’ choir from Highgate School filtering down from the highest gallery. The silence at the end of that first performance seemed to last for minutes, until thunderous applause embraced the performers, including the composer. Is this the single most affecting work of the second half of the twentieth century? If Fine Music doesn’t give us the War Requiem during this centenary year (what about 11 November?) I shall want to know the reason why. If not - oh, dear - come back, 1963. - Derek Parker
I’ve taken recently, in what is beginning to seem like my dotage, to boring everyone with “Ah, you should have been in London in the ‘60s.” We seemed to be out almost every evening: Solti conducting Frankfurt Opera at Sadler’s Wells, Christoff, Gobbi, Hotter, Nilsson – and Nureyev and Fonteyn – at the Royal Opera House, and the second visit of the Bolshoi ballet . . . Schofield’s Lear at the Aldwych, and across the river, Olivier, Gielgud, Redgrave, Edith Evans and the young Maggie Smith at the Old Vic. Then the Festival Hall, where among others we heard a fine recital by José Iturbi, star of many Hollywood films - Anchors Aweigh and Three Daring Daughters - but a fine pianist for all that. Now forgotten.
Fifty years ago this year I spent the evening of St Cecilia’s Day at the Royal Festival Hall helping to celebrate Benjamin Britten’s fiftieth birthday. As a present (for the audience as well as the composer) a concert performance was given of his Coronation opera Gloriana, which hadn’t been heard since the disaster of its first performance. It was a splendid evening of wonderful dramatic music – the opera quite properly returned to the stage in triumph a few years later. We all applauded, sang ‘Happy birthday, Ben’, and then went home. In the days before Twitter, the audience had been in an uninterrupted cocoon of pleasure, and it wasn’t until I changed trains at Tottenham Court Road after the performance that I saw, on the station platform, the newspaper placards: KENNEDY ASSASSINATED. It rather took the shine off the evening.
We queued, too, for Callas (when she cancelled her last three London Toscas the money returned was enough to buy a small car) and of course for Nureyev and Fonteyn, totally unforgettable in Giselle, Corsaire, Sylphides. It was at Giselle one evening that I was moved to ask an elderly lady, during the interval, if she would perhaps talk just a little less during the second act. She looked astounded. “It’s only music,” she replied.

Daniel Müller-Schott. ACO2, the brainchild of Australian Chamber Orchestra’s Richard Tognetti, and directed by Helena Rathbone, brings together Australia’s finest young string players and ACO musicians. This month, led by Tognetti, ACO2 embarks upon its first national subscription tour accompanied by internationally acclaimed cellist Daniel Müller-Schott. Writer Henry Mendelson catches up with the magnetic German on his New Zealand tour.

Australian audiences to hear cello chosen by casals When youthful German cellist, Daniel MüllerSchott (his parents’ respective names) takes centre stage with ACO2 and the Australian Chamber Orchestra musicians for their June national tour, audiences will for the first time hear the sublimely sonorous sound of the rare instrument he plays which was made by legendary 17th century luthier, Matteo Goffriller - similar to one played for over 60 years by Pablo Casals. In addition to performing the great classical cello concertos, Müller-Schott has a special interest in discovering unknown works and extending the cello repertoire, exemplified by his own adaptations and close cooperation with composers. Among these, Sir André Previn and Peter Ruzicka have dedicated cello concertos to him, both of which works he premiered under the composers’ batons in Leipzig and Bonn last season. Moreover, Olli Mustonen’s Sonata for Cello and Piano was premiered by the performer and the composer in Hamburg last year. An indication of the extent to which Müller-Schott is in demand throughout the musical world can be gleaned from just some highlight appearances in the 2011-12 season. These included, among others, his debut with the Cleveland Orchestra under Vassily Sinaisky, the German tour with the Philharmonia Orchestra under Kurt Masur, the Vancouver Symphony under Douglas Boyd and trio recitals in London with Anne-Sophie Mutter and André Previn, as well as an extended tour of Spain with Lambert Orkis.
I try whenever possible to explore new music..
Other meaningful breakthroughs included appearances in Asia - making his debut in Taiwan with the National Symphony Orchestra under Shao-Chia Lu - and concerts with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra under Michel Plasson and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Claus Peter Flor.

Photo - Uwe Arens. chamber works by Britten, Montemezzi and Prokofiev, while next year’s recording schedule involves orchestral co-operation with the Hamburg Orchestra and the Dresden Philharmonic under Michael Sanderling and works by Dvorak, among others. “I try whenever possible to explore new music,” he insists, citing a new cello sonata recently written for him by American composer, Sebastian Currier, in addition to the Previn and Ruzicka works. An introspective insight into Müller-Schott’s approach to his manifold commitments – his current Australian tour follows an engagement-packed 2012 with appearances on four continents – is his hesitation to compartmentalise his orchestral work from extensive chamber music involvements. “Of course I enjoy my concert work which actually helps the chamber music experience”, he explained. “It forces the performer to listen more intensely… to gain a greater understanding of the complexity of the music.
Recalling his recent New Zealand tour, MüllerSchott is full of praise for the interest displayed by the Kiwi audiences. “Their intensively attentive and appreciative response to the concerts was perhaps influenced by the fact that not so many overseas artists make the long journey to their cities”, he observed.
“Although most of my concerts are solo concerts, I tend to accept chamber-music opportunities because of the insight and inspiration I get from them. And while I meet other musicians when I play with orchestras, it’s not on the same level as when I play chamber music,” he added.
While the majority of his performances and recordings - upwards of a dozen CDs since 2000 - cover predictable classical repertoire, he is quick to point out his acute interest in and involvement with contemporary composers. A CD in the pipeline later this year will feature
The cellist’s relationship with the ACO goes back to his only other Australian visit in 2001 and a UK Haydn/Beethoven recording. The 2013 program is a Tognetti/Müller-Schott amalgam which covers Baroque (Vivaldi double concerto and Concerto in G major) followed
by a string arrangement of “A Jewish Life,” a work by Bloch, who Müller-Schott avows as his favourite composer. “Bloch wrote for the cello in a very personal way”, he stated, citing in particular the composer’s “Shelomo” (Solomon) which is an expression of emotion influenced by the composer’s Jewish heritage. At the conclusion of a performance in Berlin last year Müller-Schott recalled, there was complete silence, reflecting audiences’ reactions there to recent history. “This is definitely the most moving piece of music in the entire cello repertoire. It should be played more often, especially in Germany”, he said. When not making music Daniel is to be found on the football field, in art galleries and on hiking trails. He still has fond Blue Mountains memories from his earlier downunder visit and the amazing beachscapes which confronted him on that first Australian tour. In addition, he has developed a keen interest in awakening young people’s enthusiasm for music. His support for the “Rhapsody in School” project, a worldwide initiative to counter the eroding concert hall generations of younger audiences, also demonstrates his wholehearted commitment to music as do his US and European master classes. Here then is a musician of manifold dimensions to whom Australian audiences can look forward; a man whose soul senses the immediacy of the moment and constantly strives to assert the serenity of his instrument. - Henry Mendelson June 2013
SPELLBINDING VIRTUOSO: ARABELLA STEINBACHER
..I might have fallen a tiny bit in love..
that will come up over and over again while we talk, and she’s eager to point out how much she’s looking forward to hitting our antipodean shores again. “I love Australia,” she says. “I’ve played there a few times before and I’ve been there on holiday many times, too. It feels so free. Inner freedom, too - in Europe it’s easy to feel very tight in these big cities, but Australia is so big.”
..the classical world’s Hollywood moment..
Three years later she burst onto the professional stage in what might be the classical world’s most Hollywood moment in recent years. When the scheduled soloist for a performance with Radio France’s Philharmonic Orchestra fell ill at the eleventh hour, Steinbacher stepped up to take on the Beethoven Violin Concerto - and earned rapt accolades from the press and public alike. One review of that performance called 6
She herself avoids reviews. “I’m told they are positive,” she laughs when I ask her about the response to her latest album, Bruch, Korngold and Chausson performed with Lawrence Foster and Lisbon’s Orquestra Gulbenkian, “but I haven’t read them.” This might be for the best, considering how ill at ease the library of superlatives she tends to elicit would sit alongside her unaffected temperament. It’s the twelfth album Steinbacher has recorded in nine years - she does like to keep busy. By the time she plays in Sydney and Melbourne in June, she will have performed nearly forty concerts this year, in twenty-one cities, in nine countries from Korea to her native Germany. I did the math: it’s a concert every four point one days, with a lot of travel in between.
She is also a prodigiously talented violinist. A video on her website shows her playing the third movement of Vivaldi’s Concerto in A-minor - at age four. Admitted to the Munich Academy of Music at nine, she became Ana Chumachenko’s youngest student, and studied later with the immortal Ivry Gitlis. When she was twenty, she was awarded both the sponsorship prize of the Free State of Bavaria and a scholarship by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation.
her “a superior and fully mature performing artist, whose beauty of tone is overwhelming.” Indeed, her extraordinary timbral versatility is singled out for praise so often it has practically become a requirement for critics to sit up and notice.
..it helps to have good friends..
“The travel is still really tiring,” she admits, “but I’m a lot more comfortable being up on stage now. And it helps to have good friends around the place. It helps me feel less alone when I’m living in a hotel, away from home.” The community and camaraderie she finds with other musicians around the world is something
“I’m really looking forward to working with him again,” she tells me. “He’s a great conductor and a great friend. When you play with somebody who you know well, you can work together differently and experience the music in a different way.”
..music for me it is not about the intellect, it is about the emotions…
Arabella Steinbacher. Photo - Sammy Hart I only spoke to Arabella Steinbacher for twenty minutes, but I think I might have fallen a tiny bit in love with her. Earnest and intelligent, she is as spirited as she is reflective, seems to lack even the capacity for artifice and, frankly, is a charming conversationalist. The picture that has lingered with me since is of a young woman for whom working hard to improve at doing what she loves is genuinely a privilege, and whose intense passion for her craft is subdued by a warmth and easy optimism.
This month she’ll be performing Mozart, Beethoven and Franck at Melbourne’s Recital Centre, as well as playing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto at the Opera House with the Sydney Symphony and Charles Dutoit, currently Principal Conductor and Artistic Director for London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
She may be technically virtuosic, but it quickly becomes clear that for Steinbacher, music is a means of emotive communication, a natural human expression, and not something to be engaged solely with the cerebellum and the hands. “Technical craft is at the base of everything, of course, but music for me is not about the intellect, it’s about the emotions. That’s where the music comes from,” she says. “You can play the same piece at two different concerts; no two performances are the same.” No two audiences, either. “Yeah, when you play in Germany people think the music needs to be a certain way, people have expectations about how the music should sound, so you feel a little bit more, you know, tight. But in other places and especially in the US, you can be a lot more free, you can play from the heart more.” America has become something of a fixture in Steinbacher’s touring, and the deep affinity she feels for the people and the musical culture she’s experienced there - especially in Washington
DC and San Francisco, cities she mentions a few times - is obvious. This year she’ll spend a considerable amount of time in each, and it’s easy to get the sense that, removed from the constraints of European traditionalism, she feels more at home musically in the United States than she does anywhere else.
Japan and Germany – an important part of her story..
She’s very much a citizen of the world, though. Her mother and father are Japanese and German, respectively, both professional musicians, and Japan is as important a part of her story and identity as the Germany in which she has spent most of life. In the wake of the tsunami and subsequent nuclear meltdowns in 2011, she flew to Japan to meet with, and perform for, displaced citizens bunking in emergency shelters. “I cannot give them back their homes, but maybe I can give them some music to bring them out of the moment for a little while,” she says. “First I visited some older people and that was really sad, actually, because these people don’t know when or if they will get back to their old lives. But then I went to a school and it
was a completely different energy. These kids were eleven or twelve, and they were running around and singing with me. Just a whole different experience.” And one that has clearly left a deep impression on her. She has never lived permanently in Japan but she did spend much of her early summers with grandparents there, and the connection she feels to that country bears the seed of her own childhood. Talking and playing with those traumatised, buoyant kids has touched her in
a powerfully intimate village of memory, and when she talks about it I think I can hear her smiling even as her voice threatens to break. For all of her accomplishments, professional and otherwise, Steinbacher is still just thirtyone years old and looking forward to many, many more years of honing her artistic expression on the world’s stage. She’s excited about coming back to Australia, excited about the recording projects she has lined up in the next two years, excited about performing again in San Francisco and Washington and Bilbao and Sao Paolo and Lisbon. “One day”, she says, “I’d like to teach, but that’s for later.” For now, I’m certain, there are still just too many good memories to be made, waiting to meet her on the horizon. - Mark Della-Libera

HUNGRY FOR HUNGARY
Having spent two years in Hungary in the late 1990s I fondly think of Budapest as something of a second home. Invited to return as one of the twelve semi-finalists of the 2012 Emmerich Kálmán International Operetta-Musical Conducting Competition then, was more than an opportunity to compete and conduct. It was a chance to relive those student days, catch up with old friends, dust off the languages skills and see how the city has continued to evolve.
Much has changed since the 1990s
But first I had to reconcile an evening concert performance in Sydney on 19 September with arrival in Budapest by 20 September. My travel agent insisted it was impossible. I agreed it presented somewhat of a challenge. If I could convince concert presenters to move preconcert speeches to post-concert, dash from podium to waiting vehicle and rely on a freak electrical fault to ensure all green lights en route to the airport, I might just make it. Much to the bemusement of a family waiting on the bench outside Departures, I changed out of my concert outfit as I pulled into the kerb. [Mental note to self – investigate the telephone booth option next time as gear sticks give nasty bruises and inadvertently sounding the horn can attract unwanted attention.] Employing reverse psychology, I reasoned that arriving at the airport this late would actually be to my advantage. Assuming my fellow passengers were all conscientious enough to be there three hours in advance, I would be granted queue-free check-in and waltz straight through security.
Enticed by the idea of studying in a country about which I had only the vaguest notion, I accepted a Hungarian Government Scholarship and spent two years at the Zoltán Kodály Pedagogical Institute of Music in Kecskemét. Kecskemét, a city on the edge of the nation’s great puszta may be considered an unusual choice for an international music conservatory however the decision is explained by a small plaque on the town’s railway station. In what was perhaps an unlikely beginning to an illustrious career as a composer and music educator, Zoltán Kodály (1882-1967) was actually born in Kecskemét’s station where his father, an employee of the Hungarian State Railways, just happened to be posted. A frequent visitor to the railway station, I travelled to Budapest, an hour or so away, for weekly violin lessons at the Liszt Academy. Budapest boasted other allures however, and my violin lessons were usually followed by a visit to one of the city’s famed thermal baths.
The baths are an integral component of the Budapest experience..
Australian conductor Carolyn Watson shares her appetite for “the Hungarian experience” its tourist delights and the country’s lofty rank in the world’s classical music culture.
While Budapest has undergone many changes in recent years, this was one particular aspect I was relieved to see remained firmly entrenched. The baths are an integral component of the
Budapest experience, part of everyday life for locals and at the top of tourists’ to-do lists. Situated on natural geothermal springs, the hot waters of the city have long been popular with those in the know. Those cleanest of ancient conquerors, the Romans, built large thermal baths in the settlement then known as Aquincum while the Turks in the sixteenth century imported their own version of the bathhouse to the city. My favourite baths and probably the city’s most iconic are the Széchenyi baths, located in Budapest’s expansive City Park, or Városliget. Like much of Budapest’s city centre, the Városliget and Széchenyi are World Heritage Listed - a decision I wonder the UNESCO panel might have reached as they floated in the temperate waters beneath the pink haze of twilight. Connecting the Városliget with the city centre is a magnificent Parisian-style boulevard, Andrássy út, around which a number of the city’s cultural institutions are housed. Most recognisable among these is the façade of the Hungarian State Opera House. Opened in 1884, the Opera House was built using funds jointly provided by Emperor Franz Joseph and the city itself during a period in which Budapest thrived under a happy power sharing arrangement with Vienna known as the Dual Monarchy.
And so it worked! A mere day or so later I found myself on familiar territory in the Hungarian capital after what had been quite the James Bond 24 hours. Without the fast cars or casinos. Although I did play solitaire on the plane and it was a pretty swanky airport minibus. Much has changed since that first impression of the city during the 1990s when Hungary was in the throes of emerging from behind the Iron Curtain and the spectre of communism. 8

..the history of conducting reads a little like a Hungarian Who’s Who..
Since its inauguration the Opera House has been a platform for leading musicians of the day and counts among its previous music directors Gustav Mahler (1887-1891) and Otto Klemperer (1947-1950). While Mahler and Klemperer were imports, local talent was plentiful and the history of conducting reads a little like a Hungarian Who’s Who: Antál Dorati, Ferenc Fricsay, Arthur Nikisch, Eugene Ormandy, Hans Richter, Fritz Reiner, Anton Seidl and Georg Solti.
Hungary’s other great musical son, Béla Bartók (1881-1945) is today best remembered for his compositions though like Liszt, Bartók was probably most recognised during his lifetime as a pianist. Bartók’s most enduring legacy however, is arguably the collection and categorisation of over six thousand folk melodies from throughout modern day Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Ukraine (the then Austro-Hungarian empire) and including places as far afield as Turkey and Algeria. As well as providing inspiration for their compositions, Bartók and fellow composer and friend Zoltán Kodály, who often joined him on these trips, effectively pioneered the study of ethnomusicology. A composer of a very different sort of music, Emmerich Kálmán (1882-1953), was a contemporary of Bartók and Kodály at the Liszt Academy. Drawn initially to cabaret, Kálmán soon carved out a career as a composer of operettas and is largely credited with popularising the genre in Hungary. Scheduled to coincide with Kálmán’s 130th anniversary, the 2012 Emmerich Kálmán International OperettaMusical Conducting Competition was the second occasion on which the competition has been held. The Budapest Operetta Theatre, the venue for the competition, is just off Andrássy on a side street between the Opera House and Liszt Ferenc tér. Home of the Liszt Academy, Liszt
The Budapest Operetta Theatre during the finals of the 2012 Kálmán Conducting Competition. Ferenc tér, or Liszt Square, has become one of the city’s most popular destinations for a night out, with restaurants and bars flanking both sides of the large pedestrian precinct. Nestled amongst the newcomers, I was delighted to see my favourite pizzeria from my student days remained, even if the prices had not.
Stress of the competition aside and nervously awaiting the adjudicators’ announcement, my mind was consumed by one principle preoccupation. Selection as a finalist means a return to Budapest. And a return to Budapest means a return to Széchenyi. - Carolyn Watson
Budapest Operetta Theatre - one of Europe’s most successful..
The Hungarian School of Conducting owes much to its founding father, possibly the nation’s greatest musical export, Liszt Ferenc (1811-1886). Better known to the world by his Germanised name Franz Liszt, the pianist and conductor was also the founder of the National Academy of Music which today bears his name. In spite of a life lived mainly abroad, and purportedly unable to speak his mother tongue, Liszt remained true to his Magyar origins using his compositions, most notably the Hungarian Rhapsodies, to showcase the music of his homeland, returning to Budapest to teach and give master classes late in his life.
Like the Hungarian State Opera, the Operetta Theatre boasts an opulent late nineteenth century interior in which it was a joy to perform. In a parallel Andrew Lloyd-Weber would enjoy, the auditorium is lit by a hundred year old chandelier although fortunately it remains securely attached to the ceiling. The Budapest Operetta Theatre is one of Europe’s most successful, operating seven days a week to capacity audiences who enjoy a varied program of operettas, musicals, concerts and competition events such as this one. We, the twelve conductors were divided into four groups, each having to conduct three rounds comprising solo, duet and ensemble repertoire. In what felt as nerve wracking as a television talent show, the jury offered feedback following each of the competition rounds before selecting the one competitor from each group to progress to the final round. In order to accommodate a scheduling arrangement with Duna Television, the national broadcaster, the finals of the competition were scheduled for a month or so after the semi-finals.
More to come.. Carolyn Watson returns to Hungary for concert engagements next year when she plans to visit the Széchenyi baths. Again! In the finals of the 2012 Kálmán Conducting Competition she placed third, also winning the Special Prize of the Kodály Philharmonic and the Herend Porcelain Manufacturer’s Special Prize. June 2013

“..the greatest 20th century opera composer”
Britten took his own first step towards opera in 1933..
It was his mother who first encouraged his love of music, both at the piano (he was to become a truly great pianist) and in composition - some of his earliest melodies turn up in the popular Simple Symphony. Privately tutored by Frank Bridge, publicly at the Royal College of Music (where, already, he could have taught his professors much) he thought of studying with Alban Berg, but the R.C.M. Director pronounced the composer of Wozzeck ‘not a good influence’. It may have been fortunate advice. Britten took his own first step towards opera in 1933, with A Boy was Born, a set of choral variations. But during the following decade he consolidated his reputation with such works as his Variations on the Theme of Frank Bridge and piano and violin concerti, all of which you might call Britten for people who don’t like Britten (far too accessible for the critics).
..the chorus and orchestra simply could not understand the music..
Britten had returned with the idea for his first opera, Peter Grimes. It had a difficult birth - the chorus and orchestra at Sadler’s Wells theatre at one point went on strike: they simply could not understand the music. The public, however, did - the opera was a triumph. The sixteen operas which followed were almost all popular successes, however tetchy the critics were about them. Even his setting of Henry James’ short story The Turn of the Screw, which both in subject and score cannot be described as easy, was cheered on its first night and almost immediately became part of the international operatic repertoire. The War Requiem provided the greatest popular success of his life. Commissioned for the dedication of Coventry Cathedral, rebuilt after its demolition by Nazi bombers, it has become a truly iconic work, denouncing the barbarism of war on the one hand and (this is
often misunderstood or ignored) the futility of the Church’s reaction to war on the other. Britten’s music is often extremely lovable. The works he wrote for children are specially so - Let’s Make an Opera, Noye’s Fludde, The Golden Vanity, and of course the theme and variations which make up The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, the end of which – like the end of the sadly neglected Spring Symphony - lifts the heart so joyfully. The operas, too, often offer sheer joy - the delicious music of A Midsummer Night’s Dream brings tears to the driest of eyes, while Albert Herring (shortly to be revived at Sydney Opera House) is full of humour from beginning to end (and incidentally anyone who thinks Britten can’t write love music should lend an ear to Sid and Nancy, serenading each other in that opera).
..one of the most moving farewells any composer has made to the world..
From the very beginning of his career, Benjamin Britten wrote music which was a great deal too accessible for its own good - and a very great deal too ‘clever’. From the beginning British critics, in particular, stuck in the groove of believing that music more approachable and melodious than that provided by the twelvetone boys and their followers was barely worth serious consideration, sneered at his work for its ‘cleverness’ and ‘facility.’
Sinfonia da Requiem - returning to England from America to face some fierce criticism for his unpopular views (shared, incidentally, by his friend and colleague the composer Michael Tippett; in a famous encounter, when Britten and Pears gave a recital at Wormwood Scrubs, the prison where Tippett was serving a sentence as a conscientious objector, the latter was allowed to turn over the music for his friend at the piano).
In the brouhaha about the bicentenaries of two great nineteenth century opera composers, everyone seems so far to be underplaying the centenary of the greatest twentieth century opera composer, born fortuitously on St Cecilia’s Day in 1913.
Britten’s range, with not only opera but song cycles, chamber and choral music, the War Requiem, the huge ballet Prince of the Pagodas, is much greater than that of either Verdi or Wagner. To his last opera, the extraordinary Death in Venice, he added a coda: his third string quartet, which he heard played once, in private, before his death. Its simplicity and tranquility make it one of the most moving farewells any composer has made to the world. - Derek Parker
A characteristic voice strengthened, especially in works written under the influence of his friend W. H. Auden, the greatest poet of his generation, though their actual collaborations were relatively few, and not altogether successful (Paul Bunyan, a ‘musical’ aimed at Broadway, never really worked). Another collaboration which began in the thirties however was the most significant of Britten’s life - that with the tenor Peter Pears, who became his lover (he died in Pears’ arms) and partner both in life and in music. A lifelong pacifist, he was appalled by the outbreak of war - it is not difficult to hear a prophesy of disaster in the racked finale to his

NEW $15,000 SCHOLARSHIP: Legacy Helps Musicians Live the Dream
..But How ??
Such daydreams inevitably drift back to a less fantastical reality. The familiar probing question at the back of my consciousness begins to pulsate in my mind. How? It is a daunting question. This tedious little how is the overwhelming barrier that buries my exuberant dreams within the darkness of my mind. Many incredible musicians I know have a drive and a goal. Some more organised than myself even have a plan. But just how can these dreams, these plans, become reality when you don’t have the financial means or support to make them happen?
..valuable exposure for the winner..
The annual scholarship is worth over $15,000 and is open to all Australian citizens who live in Sydney and are aged between 18 and 30. The cash component of $10,000 is paid directly, or reimbursed for travelling, living expenses, fees and other costs associated with the individual’s project. The winning applicant will also gain valuable exposure through Fine Music 102.5’s recording and broadcasting of their music. Fine Music’s Chairman, David Brett, acknowledges the importance of scholarships to the future of Sydney’s most remarkable music individuals. “It is crucial as a community that we recognise Sydney’s talented young musicians and give them the encouragement they need to pursue their passions and dreams. “What a pleasure it is to give this support through the extraordinary generosity of Stefan Kruger.” The Fine Music 102.5 Kruger Scholarship is recognised by many of Sydney’s musicians as a huge step towards achieving their musical goals and paths.
Living the Dream
The atmosphere inside Sydney Conservatorium is both inspiring and humbling. You almost feel the energetic buzz of determination from the students who fill the air. This determination that drives our musical endeavours stems from our thoughts, our desires, our dreams, our goals. I am known to subconsciously drift off into my own musical fantasies; performing with the Berlin Philharmonic and bowing with my string quartet to a cheering crowd at the Sydney Opera House, flowers at my feet.
As a student of Sydney Conservatorium, I am continually immersed in an environment filled with passionate and eager musicians. Whether they be the composition students experimenting new instrumental sound possibilities in the ensemble rooms, the classical instrumentalists intensely practising scales, the jazz musicians jamming in the Con café or musicology students blasting Beethoven symphonies into their headphones in the library; we are all unified by our passion to learn and experience the mesmerising world of music.
Jonathan Baker, in the final year of his Bachelor of Music studying classical trumpet would use the scholarship to pursue his dream to study at the Royal Academy in London and learn from Rod Franks, principal of the London Symphony Orchestra. For the jazz singer and guitarist, Oliver Thorpe, the allowance would similarly give him the financial means to travel
overseas, where he would record his own jazzbased compositions by some of New York’s top session musicians. “I would also love to learn off the best jazz guitarists…. people like Aaron Parks, Eric Harland and Matt Penman.” Twenty-three-year-old composer Owen Salome has many musical goals including recording his own compositions with his Argentine tango quintet Tángalo. “With $10,000 I would be able to record a portfolio of my work with which to represent myself on an international level, and I would purchase the recording equipment I would need to be able to do this recording myself. Having this infrastructure (quality documentation of professional performances) will mean that I can represent myself as a professional to prospective collaborators and funding bodies. This will facilitate a continued income, providing the financial freedom required for long term artistic investigation.” This amazing possibility for youthful musical aspirations to be realised is not one to be missed. Applications for the Stefan Kruger Scholarship open from 24 May and close on 25 August. - Bree Baxter FINE MUSIC 102.5 STEFAN KRUGER SCHOLARSHIP For more information on the application and judging process, or to download an application form, visit www.finemusicfm.com or phone 02 9439 4901
Philanthropy to the fore.. the Stefan Kruger Scholarship
This is where the Fine Music 102.5 Stefan Kruger Scholarship can help out. The late Stefan Kruger was filled with a similar passion for music, and left Fine Music station a generous bequest in 2009. Fine Music is drawing on this bequest to benefit young, outstanding individuals to further their careers and their dreams in their chosen field of performance, composition or broadcasting of classical music or jazz.

GREAT WAGNER SINGERS Deutsche Grammophon DG 479 1241
This six-disc set features many names one would expect to find in such a project: Melchior, Hotter, Rysanek, Nilsson, Flagstad – all certainly recognised as ‘great Wagner RECOMPOSED BY MAX RICHTER Vivaldi: The Four Seasons Konzerthaus Kammerorchester Berlin, Andre de Ridder (Conductor), Daniel Hope (Solo Violin) DG 481 0044
✶✶✶✶ It may seem an absolute sacrilege to think that Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons needs to be re-composed or re-invented in some way, thus it was with some trepidation with which I listened. However, the playing of the score (its original, along with the modern incarnation) was superbly rendered by musicians of immense skill and intellect. This new version however, is also not pretending to be anything other than a new twist on Vivaldi, through the eyes and
singers’. But most avid Wagnerians will possess recordings by such artistes, and even some performances (Fischer-Dieskau’s sublime Abendsterm, for instance; there can’t be many Wagnerians who don’t possess that iconic recording). So one would think that much of the pleasure would come from the relatively forgotten singers such as Josef Greindl, Karen Branzell and Max Lorenz, whose voices ring, command and seduce. Indeed, it does - but it is also a delight to hear early recordings by the familiar names: Hotter recorded in Walküre in 1942, in Berlin, for instance (what can it have been like to sing Wagner at that moment in Germany?) The discs illustrate all the major Wagner roles, ears of its German-born British “composer”, Max Richter. “It’s part of our musical landscape. I wanted to make the piece, because I loved Vivaldi. So it’s my way of having a conversation with Vivaldi”, is how Richter defends his work. This conversation serves to illuminate the old with the new, making it a real rediscovery for any listener. Whilst conserving the essence of Vivaldi, there are other moments which are as though they have been put through a time machine throwing Vivaldi’s well-loved work into the 21st century. The notion of patterns in music, evident in Vivaldi, harken not only to a minimalist, but ambient approach. Just when one is re-adjusting to the familiar, Richter can subtly propel the listener into another aural domain. It is not as
On this CD, various Australian artists perform music related to France, ranging from the obvious to the obscure to the truly surprising. It is a pleasing selection of musical excerpts that illustrates the globalisation that was occurring in France around the 19th and early 20th century during the ‘Romantic’ era but more specifically during the post-Romantic era because that is when French music really stepped out Germany’s shadow.
TOULOUSE-LAUTREC PARIS AND THE BELLE EPOQUE Various Artists ABC Classics PLU345710
The obvious pieces include Offenbach’s Can-Can (Galop from Orpheus in the Underworld), Saint-Saëns’ Swan (from Carnival of the Animals), Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite (Empress of the Pagodas excerpt) and Satie’s Gymnopédie no. 1. The ‘obscure’ extracts include Debussy’s and Ravel’s String
sometimes at reasonable length; often one ends up wanting more - a complete recording of Theodor Scheidl in Meistersinger would be well worth hearing. It’s also wonderful to hear Melchior in the Wesendonck-Lieder. Is he still the best Wagnerian tenor ever? Even the restrictions of early recording fail to dim that reputation. One warning: DG fail to provide libretti - something surely essential if these discs are to sell to anyone who does not thoroughly know every Wagnerian opera - and even he or she may be occasionally at a loss. Sometimes one really does wonder whether record companies actually want to sell their products. - Derek Parker
jarring as one might expect though, and certainly has merit in terms of an accessible, contemporary performance of an old master. - Barry Walmsley
Quartet (not because they are obscure but the quartets are rarely heard), Faure’s Pelléas et Mélisande (Sicilienne excerpt), Satie’s Gnossienne no. 1, Saint-Saëns’ 5th Piano Concerto ‘Egyptian’, last movement, d’Indy’s Symphony on a French Mountain Song, 3rd movement, and Massenet’s Thaïs extract. The truly delightful pieces include Faure’s Barcarolle, Hahn’s song: À Chloris, Satie’s song: I Want You to be Mine, Pierné’s Entrance of the Little Fauns from Cydalise and the Satyr and Stravinsky’s Firebird excerpt. It is pleasing to see Fauré and Pierné on this CD given they are somewhat lesser known than other featured composers. The d’Indy piece too was delightful and reminded me how neglected he was. - Richard Wong

Just in time for Mother’s Day, an André Rieu album finds its way onto my desk. You will have noticed I have not given this review any rating stars. This is not an omission on my part but just an attempt to stop the remarks I get whenever I favour one side or the other on this most controversial of musical personalities. Enough to say that Rieu himself labels the 21 tracks on this CD as “expressions of meditation and tranquility”. And he is not wrong; they are all very soothing and peaceful examples - from Toselli’s Nightingale Serenade (accompanied by avian sound effects - how tranquil that is) to Richard Rodgers’ Edelweiss from ‘The Sound of Music’ (here given the Hollywood treatment with timpani thumping everywhere) and
in addition, it would be interesting to observe what goes on when deciding which order to arrange things in a compilation like this, with ten distinct items to choose from. The title and opening track starts straight off in bright, clear, ringing tones which characterise this particular well-fettled Steinway. As the longest individual piece, it has a distinctly modernistic feel, but the compilation is inclusive enough to give us a run through about every angle there is on presenting piano music as it is understood today, with a Sydneyesque rationale at its hub. The mood changes as swiftly as the tracks change, without ever losing the precision that so many of these works demand, from literal concepts like Collins’ brief Insect Dance to musical abstracts like Wilcher’s ScherzoHYMNE A L’AMOUR Siobhan Stagg, soprano Amir Farid, piano Move MD3360
✶✶✶ When I first heard the opening track of this album I thought - here is a remarkable voice. I wasn’t quite sure whether I was listening to an alto or a mezzo at first, and even after listening to the rest of the tracks, I am torn betwixt calling it a mezzo voice and probably what the cognoscenti have already decided that she is a lyric soprano. I feel Ms Stagg has been thrust into the limelight too soon. After all, she is only 26 and at that tender age, one would feel that a singer is still very much in his/her formative
Brahms’ Lullaby - Guten abend, Gut nacht (a most appropriate appendum to end the album with, don’t you think?). Listening and feeling relaxed, I wondered how Rieu could afford to pay for all the arranging of the music he plays, until I realise he’s arranged every piece himself. Meanwhile having taken another peep at the picture of Rieu on the cover of this CD, I am bemused about how he manages to keep the bow of his violin away from his hair when playing. Anyway, when I first started listening to this CD our family Labrador, Brandy, was sitting on the settee with me. He went to bed an hour earlier than usual that night. Always there are critics! - Randolph Magri-Overend
Ballade. This fine pianist plays her fingers to the bone to give them all the best performance they could ever hope for. - Phil Vendy
years and to push them to record a CD is slightly ambitious. Ms Stagg may be a good singer but she is not ready as an artist yet. She has no connection with the development of a song, she hasn’t been coached sufficiently well on what emotion each song is meant to convey and, at the moment she is just going through the motions of hitting the right notes without being guided as to the potential impact of each musical piece. In fact, she appears not to have been taught that music is a journey that has to be interpreted individually and that to move an audience spiritually is the greatest achievement a musician can aspire to. She has tremendous potential but at the moment she is no better, or worse, than a lot of other aspiring singers. - RMO June 2013
Jazz CD REVIEWS Like Mel Torme before her, the versatile San Francisco-based singer Jackie Ryan has been called a musicians’ singer. As was the case with Torme, it’s a badge she has worn with pride. But she’s more than that! She belongs to the upper echelons of today’s contemporary jazz vocalists, a status she has reconfirmed with each new release since her stunning 2006 album You And The Night And The Music. (Pardon my bias. I have been a fan ever since hearing and buying it.) With her crystal tone and sultry phrasing, she has that rare ability to make a song her own whether it’s a ballad or swinger. In other words she sings from the heart, weaving the words into the fabric of the melody. The album’s success owes a lot

✶✶✶✶ FOUR CLASSIC ALBUMS PLUS (Bud Freeman/ Chicago And All That Jazz/ Chicago, Austin High School Jazz In Hi-Fi/ The Bud Freeman Group) Bud Freeman Avid Jazz EMSC 1072
✶✶✶✶✶ Where do I start? First congratulations to this English label for continuing to reissue classic material which these days appears to hold little or no interest for the major labels for which it was first recorded. This is the music of my youth when a Bud Freeman recording, usually as part of an Eddie Condon group, was a “must” buy for a young jazz enthusiast. Until the arrival of Lester Young with Count Basie in 1937, Freeman’s style was the only alternative

to that of Coleman Hawkins. You either played like Bud or Hawkins. One of the founders of the Chicago school of jazz, he was a robust soloist; his full smooth tone had a rough edge and large vibrato - and could he swing! The only album here I had heard previously was Chicago And All That Jazz inspired by a 1961 NBC television show. But the standout is the Chicago/Austin High School set. Freeman put together three excellent bands for these 1957 sessions which paid tribute to the McKenzie and Condon Chicagoans of 1927 (China Boy, Sugar, Liza and Nobody’s Sweetheart) and Freeman’s Famous Chicagoans from 1940 (Prince of Wails, Jack Hits The Road, 47th And State and At The Jazz Band Ball). Obviously inspired, Freeman and the great trombonist Jack Teagarden are at the top of their game,
I’d never heard of Molly Ringwald the singer. In fact I hadn’t even heard of Molly Ringwald the actress until I looked her up and there she was, having appeared in such films as The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles and The Pick-up Artist, none of which I’ve seen. She’s also an author but I can’t seem to find out what she’s written. Yes, I’m a real dummy! Be that as it may, I do find this album of oldies (Stephen Sondheim, Hoagy Carmichael and even Ray Noble) quite pleasantly and surprisingly satisfying. But that’s only because I am an oldie myself although I do think a youngster like Molly (she’s all of 45 years old) singing stuff like I Get Along Without You Very Well and The Very Thought Of You could easily have the youth
to arranger John Clayton who not only builds a superb band around her - it includes his piano playing son Gerald and tenor saxophonist Ricky Woodward - but accompanies her with care and respect on bass. With superb backing by the Claytons, her subtle but full-throated A Time For Love loses nothing in comparison with Shirley Horn and her version of I Loves You Porgy rivals that of Nina Simone. As is the case on all her albums she sings one song in Spanish, this time she warmly embraces La Puerto, a tribute to her late opera-loving and singing Mexican mother. There’s an embarrassment of riches here: high quality musicianship and superb singing. My advice - just follow the album title. - Kevin Jones
trumpeter Billy Butterfield has seldom played better, and the contrasting clarinet stylings of the seamless Peanuts Hucko and the more eccentric output of Pee Wee Russell are a joy. The last word sums it all up. - KJ
of this world appreciating some of the more sophisticated music on this album. And Ringwald’s musicality isn’t half bad either. Oh true, there’s no great explosions of sound and the pitch of the songs is not terribly challenging but Ringwald does it all with an air of confidence and expertise. At times she sounds like a rejuvenated Nancy Wilson and the last track Don’t You (Forget About Me) has a touch of the Carol Kings about it but on most things she attempts she sounds like an original Molly Ringwald. One thing she doesn’t do and I thank her for it - she doesn’t hold her long notes to the excruciating point where you’re left wondering when she’ll get on to it…if you know what I mean! - Fulton Myers
SWINGING ON THE VINE Blast From The Brass Crosby - but his trumpet complemented such popular records as the 1943 hit of Moonlight In Vermont by a 19-year-old Margaret Whiting and Frank Sinatra’s sensitive 1950 treatment of the ballad Nevertheless with arranger Axel Stordahl’s Orchestra. At the end of World War Two Butterfield led his own orchestra for a couple of years until the big band business collapsed.
Billy Butterfield Little J (Not so Little J these days) stirs and wags his tail as my Hunter Valley hideaway is filled with the delicious aroma of spaghetti with garlic butter, bacon and prawns. My mouth watering I empty the contents of a bottle of red, making sure that my good friend Rocco’s glass has been filled first. The “siege” has been lifted! With floodwaters beginning to recede Rocco had splashed his way through waist deep water holding a hamper full of delicacies above his head including hams, pasta, sour dough, olives, tomatoes and seafood. For six days (and nights) I had lived on the bounty of the red grape - and not a peep from the homestead. Maybe it’s because I had told The Voice I was auditioning for a part in the TV series Back To The Cave. “You’ve never left the cave,” she had replied tartly while my insufferable brother-in-law Clifford sniggered in the background. But I was content music, wine, the company of my pig and not tormented by the joys of “civilisation” such as the “entertainment” of prescription TV. The music is really swinging in the background. Rocco tapping his foot as Benny Goodman’s clarinet is replaced by a strong trumpet solo erupting from the brass. “Who’s that?” he yells. “Billy Butterfield,” I reply. (It’s a recording of Fletcher Henderson’s arrangement of What A Little Moonlight Can Do which also has a vocal by Goodman’s one time paramour Helen Ward. It was the perfect take. At the end of it on February 19, 1953 the band applauded.) Butterfield, not only had an enviable big band pedigree - Goodman, Artie Shaw and Bob
The Goodman brass team of 1940-41 was “one hell of a section” according to Butterfield. As lead trumpeter, he was a key member along with Cootie Williams, Jimmy Maxwell, Irving Goodman and trombonists Lou McGarity and Cutty Cuttshall. It wasn’t as big as some of the other sections around but it was powerful. As a member of Shaw’s band, Butterfield was featured but with Goodman it was a different story. He was mainly on lead as Williams did most of the solo work with the orchestra and sextet. Butterfield summed it up: “I would get eight bars (solos) here and four bars there but it was mostly slogging away.” He had more opportunity for actual jazz playing during his three years (1937-40) with Bob Crosby, especially when trumpeter Yank Lawson was poached by Tommy Dorsey enabling Butterfield to take over trumpet with the Bob Cats, the small band drawn from the orchestra. It’s interesting to read Butterfield’s insights into the bands of the swing era. He describes the Crosby unit, with which he first gained fame, as a “fun band - like a family band. We had a ball. “All the guys in the Crosby were given the opportunity to play their features a lot. There was more room to stretch out than in any other big band! And talking of features, Bob Haggart came up with two specials - I’m Free which was meant for (clarinettist) Irving Fazola and another one to feature myself which subsequently became My Inspiration. It was originally two different tunes but Haggart tied them together. We eventually changed these over and I ended up with I’m Free (with lyrics added later it became What’s New). My Inspiration was originally called Big Mouth which is what the New Orleans’ guys used to call gin. Since Fazola drank his share of gin that’s what they called the tune. ‘‘There are loads of stories about Benny and Artie and the Dorseys and all their funny ways. Lots of them are true but they were all businessmen and successful ones at that. Bob Crosby had his gloomy side, always believing
everybody liked Bing and nobody rated him. He often seemed to be under a dark cloud understandable in a way because (saxophonist) Gil Rodin was really the band’s boss. “Shaw was a strange one. I could never understand him. He really was a lucky guy getting where he did because the way he used to treat the public was something. I mean downright rude and very contemptuous. Still, they loved it, and he got away with it. He had this big band (1940) with 29 or 30 strings and we were playing at The Palace, a fine old hotel in San Francisco owned and run in the old tradition. We had two band uniforms, neither of which were tuxedos. The owner, a dear old lady, wanted the band to wear tuxedos. Artie argued they were businessman not waiters. He lost the argument - the band wore tuxedos! His way to get even with her was not to show up until 12.30 a.m. after disappearing with Paulette Goddard (the female lead in the movie Second Chorus which featured his band). Trombonist Jack Jenney would front the band and Johnny Guarnieri would play the clarinet solos on piano. There were a couple of good clarinet players in the band but nobody wanted to do it.” As Rocco places a steaming pile of pasta on the table he wants to know how I know so much. I think of the many yellowing pages on my swing idols in my den and feel depressed as I wonder what will happen to them when I’m gone. But Woody Herman’s Second Herd is storming through Dance Ballerina, Dance in the background, the food is delicious, the wine perfect and I am free from the populist punditry of today’s society. Let it rain! – Patrick D Maguire

June Program Highlights A TALENTED LOT THESE AUSSIES In Tune with Nicholas Milton Monday 10 June 1pm Spotlight on Australian Performers: Ian Munro - Saturday 15 June 9.30am This month Fine Music programmers have united in a garland of tributes to Australians past and present in celebration of our position as Sydney’s local Fine Music broadcaster, and no one knows the importance of community quite like the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra’s Chief Conductor Dr Nicholas Milton. Engaged with the WSO since 2001, Dr Milton manages to combine a busy European conducting schedule with managing the orchestra. Growing up in Chatswood and studying in Sydney, Milton has had a lifelong connection with the area, and is exceedingly proud to have built the WSO into an orchestra which stands at the forefront of the arts in Sydney, and whose interaction with its community is first rate. Ian Munro, composer, writer - and of course world renowned pianist - is another Australian who, despite travelling the world, never forgets the place he calls home. Performing and recording countless new works by Australian composers, Ian Munro continues to bring Australian music to the world. Born in Melbourne, Munro studied at the Victorian College of the Arts (1981–83). His early piano training was in Melbourne with Rodney Hurst, Marta Rostas (a pupil of Béla Bartók), Deirdre Vadas and Roy Shepherd (a pupil of Alfred Cortot) and he had further study in Vienna, London and Italy with Franz Zettl, Noretta Conci, Guido Agosti and Michele Campanella. His early dedication to maintaining a solo
repertoire of rare and unusual pieces was the catalyst which led to his lifelong dedication to Australian music.
Ian Munro A Dangerous Game - Boris Lyatoshynsky Morning Concert - Monday 10 June 10am The most divisive issue of the last century in classical music would have to be the relationship between Dmitri Shostakovich and the Soviet Union. To this day, decades after the events of the mid 20th century, musicologists and music fans alike will still argue over Shostakovich’s true intentions. Was his Ninth Symphony of 1945 really a Stalinist ‘hymn of victory’ - or was it an ironic mockery of the Soviet Union’s victory instead? It seems we will never know. It’s important to not get carried away with the man and the myth. Although Shostakovich’s story is fascinating - it’s only one of the many extremely tense situations composers faced throughout the majority of the 20th Century. Boris Mikolayovich Lyatoshynsky (1895-1968) was another composer who felt the weight of the world on his shoulders throughout his tumultuous life. The Ukrainian-born composer maintained a lifelong relationship with the Kiev Conservatory, studying there with Reinhold Gliere, teacher, fellow composer, and finally, colleague, when he took up a post as teacher and later professor. Lyatoshynsky also taught concurrently at the Moscow conservatory from 1935-1944 with a break just before the outbreak of war. It was here that Lyatoshynsky was subjected to the Soviet ideal of what art should be. But Lyatoshynsky had his own personal journey to embark on in regard to his artistic style. He started his career writing in a quasi-romantic idiom, but soon found himself treading the same path as Shostakovich, writing
more and more daring works until he couldn’t escape the attention of the Soviet critics. He was accused of formalism and the creation of degenerative art (along with Prokofiev and Shostakovich). Notwithstanding the very real threat which went along with being on the wrong side of the Soviets, (people were known to just ‘disappear’) this is a criticism Lyatoshynsky must not have taken lightly, because very soon his style shifted. Gradually there appeared more and more evidence of simplification of his harmonies. He started following the broad outlines of Ukrainian national music, with increased reference to the folk-songs and music of the Ukraine, relying on the research in this field of Mykola Lysenko (an earlier Ukrainian composer, musician, and ethnomusicologist). This was the style Lyatoshynsky was to stick with for the remainder of his career, which earned him his place in history as the ‘Father of Ukrainian Music’. Sadly though, most of his music was never performed in his lifetime, and much remains unperformed even today. - Troy Fil NOT TO BE MISSED!

15:00 FANNY AND FELIX Prepared by Sheila Catzel
Egypt is plunged into darkness by God as punishment for keeping the Israelites in bondage. Pharaoh asks Mosè to intercede before God. Mosè does, God lifts His punishment and the Israelites are free to go. Osiride, Pharaoh’s son, loves the Israelite maiden Encia and, fearing that they will be parted forever, opposes his father’s edict. Appealing to priest Mambre for help they persuade the king to revoke his decree over the objections of the Pharaoh’s wife, Amaltea. Mosè is angered and brings down a storm of hailstones and fire. Pharaoh is again afraid and orders the Israelites to leave, but, seeing Osiride’s unhappiness, breaks his promise to let the Israelites go. Osiride tries to kill Mosè and is struck dead by lightning. Elcia laments her lovers death. By the shore of the Red Sea, Mosè begs God to save his people. Moses strikes the waters with his staff and they split apart, allowing the Israelites to cross safely. When the Egyptian army pursues them, the waters close in on them.

15:00 FROM CUBA Prepared by Angela Bell
The Nibelung Mime has brought up young Siegfried in a forest. Siegfried learns that his mother had died giving birth to him, leaving the fragments of his father’s sword, Nothung. Siegfried demands that Mime reforge the sword but Mime fails. Wotan appears as a wanderer and challenges Mime to a test by questions. When Mime fails to answer correctly, his head is forfeit. Siegfried forges Nothung himself and Mime leads him to kill the giant Fafner, now a dragon, guarding the gold hoard. Mime plans to take the Ring and poison Siegfried. Alberich waits near the cave hoping to regain the ring. The wanderer warns him that Mime is bringing Siegfried to kill the dragon. Siegfried blows his horn, which wakens Fafner; Siegfried kills him. After sucking blood from his hand, he can understand a woodbird, who tells him to take the ring and Tarnhelm from the hoard and warns him of Mime’s plan. Siegfried kills Mime. The woodbird tells him to seek a bride on a rock surrounded by fire.
