EDITOR’S DESK It’s the end of financial year and rather than let Mr Abbott and company take all your tax dollars, do consider the tax deductions available when you donate to Fine Music 102.5. One hundred percent! We promise to use your money to continue to bring you fine music, high quality broadcasts and to give backing and exposure to young and emerging musical talent. Donating is simple - just call one of our friendly volunteer receptionists on 9439 4777 or do so securely online at finemusicfm.com. If you’d like a look around the station to see how your money is spent, please join us on Sunday 1 June 10.30am for our open day. One of the latest recipients of the station’s support is the innovative Acacia Quartet. This foursome got together in 2010 and have made a name for themselves as champions of new Australian compositions and for reviving little known classics. They have two new CDs soon to be released - one of which was recorded in the Fine Music studios. They have a busy live performance schedule, and one of their upcoming concerts is part of The Concourse Chatswood’s Live at Lunch series where they’ll perform with flautist, Jane Rutter. More - over the page and in our What’s On section. For Pinchgut Opera and their many ardent fans, 2014 is a particularly exhilarating year with double the work load – two operas rather than their traditional one only. The first, just around the corner, is Antonio Salieri’s The Chimney Sweep (5, 6, 7 July) and then in December they’ll be celebrating Christoph Willibald Gluck’s anniversary year - 300 years since his birth. The opera they have chosen for this is Gluck’s Iphigénie en Tauride which you will be able to hear on air in our At The Opera program - Wednesday 4 June 8pm. You can read all about Pinchgut’s The Chimney Sweep on page 3. Another major event for the July diary - and a first for Sydney - is the World Harp Congress which will have representatives from 40 countries. Past congresses have been held all over Europe, Israel, the USA and most recently Canada. Anna Svenne lets us know what’s in store - page 6. At Fine Music, we were sad to hear of the passing recently of The Hon Barry O’Keefe AM QC. A former Supreme Court judge and head of the Independent Commission Against Corruption, Mr O’Keefe was a benefactor of the station and had been involved with us for some 17 years.

ACACIA QUARTET – OUT OF THE BOX THE ESTABLISHED MEETS THE UNORTHODOX

Anna Martin-Scrase, Stefan Duwe, Lisa Stewart and Myee Clohessy

With a passion for championing and showcasing new Australian compositions and reviving little known classics, the Acacia Quartet has carved out a significant niche for itself in the competitive world of chamber music. In just on four short years since forming, the group has been nominated for ARIA and APRA awards for their 2012 albums Blue Silence ) - the complete works for string quartet by Elena Kats-Chernin - and North + South - a collaboration with soprano Jane Sheldon and harpist Genevieve Lang. The inventive Sydney-based foursome comprises the well-credentialed and internationallyexperienced musicians - violinists Lisa Stewart and Myee Clohessy, violist Stefan Duwe and cellist Anna Martin-Scrase. A hallmark of Acacia’s music output is collaboration. And, it is a sign of the respect in which they are held that the likes of Kats-Chernin, among several other esteemed composers and musicians, choose to team up with Acacia. “I still remember the very first rehearsal we had,” says Kats-Chernin. “It was my piece Fast Blue Village for a concert in March 2011, and my spontaneous reaction was - wow I love the sound, I love the way this group just throws themselves into the piece with breakneck tempo without any concern for risks and it is so exciting to witness this complete abandonment and immersing themselves in the music. “It was probably the way Acacia interpreted my pieces with such high individuality and skill that made me suddenly think to ask them to record my works. Luckily they agreed and with Vexations 840 producing the CD [Blue Silence] it all fell into place incredibly quickly.” Acacia works closely with composers to honour the score whilst bringing their own interpretation to the music. They find the experience highly rewarding and their work to date, with composers such as Kats-Chernin, Eric Whitacre, Lyle Chan, Gordon Kerry, Moya 2

Henderson and Jeremy Rose they say has been a truly enlightening process. Performers they have worked with include Sheldon, bassoonist Kim Walker, pianist Gerard Willems, singer/songwriter Katie Noonan and pianist and composer Sally Whitwell. And soon to be added to the list is acclaimed flautist, Jane Rutter - they will join Rutter for a Live at Lunch concert on 2 July at The Concourse Chatswood. Their new CD release, out in August and to be followed by a tour of Sydney, Canberra, Wollongong and Newcastle, is Different Worlds. It sees the group joined by another musical adventurer - classical saxophonist Nick Russoniello - ABC Young Performer of the Year and Fine Music’s 2014 Kruger Scholarship winner. The compositions for this CD come from Astor Piazzola, Chick Corea and Australian composer Jeremy Rose. Ahead of that major undertaking, Acacia has another exciting first. They will perform a new Joe Chindamo work which was written with the support of an Australia Council Grant. The world premiere of the string quartet composition will be a highlight of this month’s Out of the Box concerts. Chindamo was so enthusiastic at the prospect of writing for the quartet that he commented, “If I were marooned on a desert island and my fellow lost souls just happened to be the members of a great string quartet (who also just happened to have their instruments with them), I will have found an inexhaustible means of indulging my musical visions. As such, when Acacia extended an  invitation to compose a work for them, I jumped at the chance.” Another album is also in the offing featuring works of Australian composer Lyle Chan, entitled An AIDS Activist’s Memoir. This deeply personal and moving work is the musical memoire of Chan’s time as an AIDS activist in the 1990s. Acacia and Chan have previously teamed up with Chan in the role of producer (with Vexations840) for Blue Silence.

BECOMING THE QUARTET The four who would become the Acacia Quartet met at different stages of their lives - Lisa Stewart and Myee Clohessy at National Music Camp as teenagers; Lisa and Stefan Duwe performing together in Germany; Myee and Stefan recording for ABC Classics in 2002; and Lisa and Stefan spotting Anna Martin-Scrase and her red cello case on a Manly ferry. They finally came together in 2010 and found they had a strong mutual empathy and desire to perform chamber music. Over four short years, their bond has gone beyond that of colleagues to become that of dear friends, supporting one another through personal tragedies such as the passing of parents; joys, such as the birth of children; difficulties such as ill health; as well as delighting in each other’s achievements. They have all performed in a range of ensembles including various chamber groups and orchestras. Highlights include Clohessy’s full-time engagement with the Norwegian Arctimus Ensemble as well as serving as Assistant Concertmaster of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra (under Daniel Harding); Stewart’s participation as Concertmaster and soloist for the Cologne Chamber Orchestra as well as Guest 3rd Concertmaster of the London Philharmonic Orchestra (under Bernard Haitink); Duwe’s performing with the Philharmonia Hungarica and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen; and Martin-Scrase’s time in Salzburg with the Wiener Jeunesse Orchester and the Salzburg Chamber Soloists. The four are also passionate teachers and tutor each year at the South Coast Music Camp as well as coach HSC composition and performance students at various schools. – Wendy Todd

PINCHGUT SWEEPS UP SYDNEY A SEXY FUN ROMP

“As with the best comedies,” says this year’s director for Pinchgut, Mark Gaal, “The Chimney Sweep takes a sly look at life under the guise of frivolity. Desire, gratification and ambition are exposed as real and primary. And yet also present is genuine affection, an abundance of generosity and an appetite and delight for life that is as inspiring as it is enjoyable.” The story in a nutshell: Volpino, an Italian chimney sweep, and Lisel, a cook, are planning their imminent wedding. Volpino discovers that Lisel’s mistresses - Mrs Hawk (a widowed ex-opera singer) and Miss Hawk (her stepdaughter) - are being pursued by two exmusicians, Mr Bear and Mr Wolf, who have recently fallen into their fortunes. Volpino senses a chance to secure his and Lisel’s future. 4

The Seraglio was the singspiel that followed The Chimney Sweep at the National Theatre in Vienna. “It’s no accident that after seeing a performance of The Chimney Sweep,” adds Gaal, “the then 25-year-old Mozart was inspired to write The Abduction. It is, after all, a comedy in which complex relationships are played out in a fantastic conceit, just as they are in Salieri’s work!”

but vulnerable, “Indulgent self-obsessed but open…

Salieri’s librettist, Johann Leopold von Auenbrugger, was a man of science and medicine, and Gaal sees parallels in the manner in which he dissects complex human behaviour in all his characters. “Indulgent but vulnerable, self-obsessed but open, they remain as identifiably human today as they no doubt were in the 1780s.” The Chimney Sweep has never before been recorded nor professionally staged in modern times. That this singspiel was performed more than 80 times between 1781 and 1791 in Germanspeaking lands demonstrates how much Salieri’s music was appreciated and enjoyed, and how his themes resonated with audiences in his time. Pinchgut felt it was high time to restore Salieri’s good name and his music, and bring this

gratification and “ Desire, ambition are exposed..

Posing as a fugitive Italian nobleman he worms his way into the affections of the two Mistresses Hawk while assuming the role of their singing coach and accent tutor. Then begins a delicate game of cat and mouse as Volpino seeks to auction the women to their suitors, while simultaneously stringing the two ladies along in their dreams of attaining the rank of nobility. “Salieri probably intended the title role of Volpino to be something of a self-portrait or self-parody,” says Pinchgut’s co-artistic director Erin Helyard, who will direct from the fortepiano. “Volpino is not only a chimney sweep but also an Italian musician residing in a German-speaking city. Many times he sits down to a keyboard on stage and accompanies and teaches the lady singers.” Salieri often paints the sound of Volpino’s keyboard accompaniment very cleverly with pizzicato strings. The arias that Mrs Hawk and Miss Hawk sing for Volpino to show off their operatic prowess and also to seduce the wily Italian, are virtuosic tour-de-forces. “The original singer for Miss Hawk was of course the great Caterina Cavalieri,” continues Heylard. “She was trained by Salieri himself, and is most famous today for creating the role of Constanza in Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio.”

This is a landmark year for Pinchgut Opera - for the first time in the company’s 12-year history, they’re tackling two productions in a single year. First cab off the rank in early July is a sexy, fun romp by Mozart’s great rival, Antonio Salieri - The Chimney Sweep. If you’ve seen and enjoyed the fictional account of Mozart’s life as presented in the film Amadeus, you’ll recall that Antonio Salieri was alleged to have poisoned the younger composer. Mozart’s murderer? Pah! Nothing could be further from the truth. Mozart and Salieri did indeed enjoy a healthy rivalry, but were firm friends by the time of Mozart’s untimely death. (Sadly, and somewhat prosaically, Mozart simply caught the fatal “bug” that was doing the rounds of young men in Vienna in the late 1700s.) The neglected gem that Pinchgut Opera has chosen to mount in the first of two productions this year is Salieri’s The Chimney Sweep. Rather than strictly opera, The Chimney Sweep falls into the category of a singspiel. Literally “singplay”, the singspiel was a favourite genre of Emperor Joseph II, where much of the drama is spoken rather than sung as recitative. Mozart’s The Magic Flute is a great example, though directors these days often make judicious and extensive cuts to the spoken word. Singspiels often featured hilarious romantic plots, and comically exaggerated characterisations of good and evil.

Sydneysider Mark Gaal – director, The Chimney Sweep


neglected early Classical jewel to life. “Not only is the score full of vocal fireworks and buffa patter,” says Heylard, “but there are also some highly dramatic ensemble numbers.” The final “redemption” quartet has some of the most beautifully touching passages in the whole singspiel. “Salieri was also quick to add some local colour for the Viennese,” Erin continues. “At the end of Act III, Lisel sings a superb ariette in the style of a rollicking Austrian Ländler. And of course Miss Hawk has that stunningly brilliant slow aria in which she ascends to a high ‘E’.” Tackling this virtuosic role for Pinchgut’s production will be young Australian soprano Janet Todd, who hails from Melbourne. While she admits to still being “a young soprano with a path ahead in my career that may take turns in any direction,” her voice is well suited to early Classical music. She has sung Zerlina and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni) for Opera Australia, and in May this year sang Pamina (The Magic Flute) for Opera on the Beach in Coolangatta. “Staying within the world of the opera was a bit of a challenge with waves crashing and wind blowing around us, but it was all made more exciting by being out in the elements,” enthuses Todd. No such meteorological challenges come July in the cosy, acoustically divine surrounds of the City Recital Hall for The Chimney Sweep. “It’s our home,” says Heylard. “Pinchgut’s productions are perfectly suited to the intimacy and immediacy of sound in Angel Place. And though we’re introducing the added element of spoken dialogue in this piece, the music will always come first for us - of that you can be sure!” Teacher and Student To the casual listener, Salieri sounds like Mozart - or more accurately, Mozart sounds like Salieri, as Salieri came first! He was the foremost Italian composer in Vienna at the time. He was also the greatest student and protégé of Christoph Gluck; at his most serious, Salieri certainly sounds like his teacher. With their two productions in 2014, Pinchgut is highlighting this teacher-student relationship: Salieri’s The Chimney Sweep in July, and Gluck’s crowning achievement, Iphigénie en Tauride in December.

Iphigénie is Gluck’s most “dramatically involving work…

Gluck and Salieri first met around 1770, at a musical Sunday morning “salon”. Gluck, the elder, soon became an informal advisor, friend and confidante. Interestingly, when Gluck was offered the chance to compose the inaugural opera for La Scala opera house in Milan in 1778,

he declined. It’s possible that he was busy at work on Iphigenie and couldn’t accommodate the demands of an additional opera project. The commission was instead offered to the younger Salieri, who gratefully accepted. It was the first of many occasions with Gluck was able to act as patron and champion for the younger composer. Iphigénie is Gluck’s most dramatically involving work. The story is both very conventional in one sense - it’s a Greek myth - and less so in another: it’s one of the few operas where the central character is female, and the story is not about her falling into or out of love. How about that! Instead, it’s a tale of familial love and deep friendship; noble aims of sacrifice, duty and honour are played out within a taught drama. It contains much of Gluck’s best music; the title character will be sung by Caitlin Hulcup who Sydney audiences would remember from her performance in the title role of Griselda. Fine Music 102.5 has been celebrating Gluck’s anniversary year - 300 years since his birth - with regular broadcasts of all his operas throughout 2014. To give you a taste of what’s on offer from Pinchgut, you can hear Iphigénie en Tauride on Wednesday 4 June 8pm in AT THE OPERA. Or, if you prefer the live experience, then Pinchgut will present Iphigénie en Tauride at City Recital Hall, Angel Place on 3, 5, 7 and 9 December. See www.pinchgutopera.com.au for details.

The World Harp Congress - Heaven Sent Come July, Sydney will play host to the World Harp Congress, the biggest gathering of harpists in the world. What’s the collective noun for a gathering of harpists? A heavenly host? A glissando? A pluck? We’re not sure, but the answer may well become apparent in July when Sydney plays host to the 12th World Harp Congress. An international triennial event, this week-long festival is coming to the Southern hemisphere for the first time in its 36-year history, attracting delegates and performers from 40 different countries and cultures. The harp is one of the most ancient instruments, with a history stretching back to 3,500 BC in Mesopotamia. From the African kora to the Japanese koto, the Irish clàrsach to the modern orchestral harp, it’s an instrument that finds a home in all cultures and styles. Famous harpists through history include King David, Marie Antoinette, Carlos Salzedo and, perhaps most well known of all, Harpo Marx. As legend has it, Harpo was bullied as school, so he left and instead taught himself to play on a harp he inherited. A wonderful consolation, given the fame he later found as the Marx Brother comedian who remained mute on stage, but instead ‘spoke’ through his harp. The World Harp Congress program has been specially devised by local artistic director Alice Giles, and will showcase the amazing array of styles that the harp can play, from early music, through various ethnic cultures, jazz, contemporary and classical music. “This is the first time the WHC has really opened

up to all cultures and styles. Australia is such a multicultural country, and I wanted the program to reflect that diversity,” says Giles. “We’re hosting harpists from Uganda, Iran, Japan, Brazil, Europe and North America, just to name a few. But there will also be a focus on Australian and New Zealand content too. This is really our chance to show the rest of the harp world the best of our harpists and composers for the harp.” The daytime program for delegates includes masterclasses, workshops, lecturedemonstrations, panel discussions, and a daily focus on youth public performance. Amongst those youngsters performing at Sydney’s

historic Garrison Church will be a rare sight indeed - a young Australian male harpist, Rowan Phemister. Eighteen-years-old from Yass, Phemister says this will be his first harp congress: “I don’t really know what to expect, but it’s such a golden opportunity to hear so many harpists from around the world.” Phemister remains unfazed at the prospect of playing to a hall full of harpists. “Yeah, I might be a bit nervous, but there’s going to be so much to learn from everyone.” Phemister is also the only male member of SHE - the Seven Harp Ensemble, a group directed by Alice Giles, which will be performing the opening work at the Sydney Town Hall Gala Opening concert of the congress. A new commission from Australian composer Ross Edwards, Harp Mantras will feature the seven harps, sounds of the Australia environment and didgeridoo virtuoso William Barton. Says Gil, “The harp is capable of a myriad of different sounds and tone colours. This piece from Ross is going to be a very evocative ‘welcome to Australia’ for all the international harpists.” Events and Performers This program spans all the continents of the globe, with performers from Australia, USA, China, Venezuela, Germany and Uganda. (And before anyone raises complaint, Alice Giles travelled to Antarctica in 2011 with her harp on a creative fellowship – following in the footsteps of her grandfather, an adventurer who accompanied Mawson on his first expedition!) Amongst the international visitors is Albert Ssempeke, son of the former royal court musician to Kabaka (King) Muteesa II


of Buganda. Ssempeke plays the traditional Endongo – a bowed or ‘“arched” lyre, and the Adungu, an instrument from Buganda, a subnational kingdom in Uganda.

Canto Ostinato Dutch-born Gwyneth Wentink was the youngest ever winner of the prestigious International Harp Competition in Israel, being just 16 years old at the time. She was also the first solo harpist to be named Young Concert Artist in New York, one year later. Her musical journeys have taken her from royal palaces in Holland performing for Queen Beatrix, to festivals of world music in Mumbai. Canto Ostinato is a seminal minimalist work by Dutch composer Simeon den Holt. Tonal and mesmerising, the work allows for flexible scoring and duration – some performances have taken up to a day! Wentink will perform a 60-minute version on solo harp, accompanied by some audio-visual elements. Also on the program are two harp-and-dance combinations: Stasa Mirkovic Grujic from Serbia and Sirin Pancaroglu from Turkey, performing duo harp with percussion and traditional dance; and DueAttemaHaring with dancer Miguel Fiol Duran, also from the Netherlands, who draw on inspiration from Radiohead, John Cage and Arvo Pärt. Following in Wentink’s footsteps as a winner of the International Harp Competition in Israel is stunning French harpist Anaïs Gaudemard, who took out the coveted first prize in 2013. She confesses, ‘My family does not really understand about music!’ but nevertheless, this young virtuoso has been allowed to follow her passion for the harp. Part of her prize for winning in Israel included a brand new harp – a not inconsiderable win, given harps can range in price for $A15,000 to over $A100,000. But,

Gaudemard laughs, things have become a little crowded at home: “Yes! It is wonderful, but I already have two harps. I can’t have three. So, I will sell my first harp and upgrade!” Joining her in concert is another of that rarer breed – the male harpist. Gender matters not a whit to Remy van Kesteren from the Netherlands, who took out First Prize in the 2013 USA International Harp Competition. Rather, it’s all about the instrument. “I want to let the world hear what the harp is capable of; it is an instrument with which you can tell the most beautiful stories. And that’s what music is all about: telling a personal story! The power of a musician, who plays honestly and purely, without compromises, but with a large degree of risk-taking, is what inspires me in music.” Viva la France! Many of the greatest works for harp come from France – composers such as Debussy, Faure and Ravel all having successfully turned their hand to write for this challenging

instrument. Likewise, French harpists have long dominated the international harp world. Indeed, Isabelle Moretti’s name is synonymous with the interpretation of many of these composer’s works, as a quick Google search of “French Harp Music” will attest. She performs a program including Ravel’s much-loved Introduction & Allegro, for which she will be joined by musicians from our own Australia Ensemble. Also featured in this program is the Congress’ youngest harpist, 11-year-old Russian child prodigy, Alisa Sadikova. Tiny in stature, but most certainly not in sound, this angelic child harpist will perform a work with orchestra by featured congress composer Bernard Andrès. Andrew Lawrence-King’s name is synonymous with early music. Since bursting onto the scene in 1996 with an album by his group The Harp Consort of 17th century Spanish dances, Lawrence-King has carved out a career as an early music specialist. The harp’s many guises through history mean that Lawrence-King is expert on the clàrsach (early Irish harp), Spanish triple harp, and Baroque double harp. For this program, Andrew revisits the Spanish repertoire. His triple harp will travel with him from his home in Guernsey. It’s delicate construction means it needs a seat on the plane, rather than going in the hold – quite the travel companion! The World Harp Congress culminates in a performance with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Simone Young. Israeli harpist Sivan Magen, and our own Louise Johnson will perform concertos by Rodrigo and Bracegirdle. And because you can never get enough harp, Young has also programmed two orchestral works with multiple harp forces required – no less than six, in fact – in Liszt’s peaceful Orpheus and Zemlinsky’s atmospheric The Mermaid. Now, what was that collective noun again?... – Anna Svenne June 2014

Young Virtuosi The last of the semi finalists for the Young Virtuoso Award 2014 is broadcast this month. Our broadcast series with the Even Younger Performers follows and we round off this month with the North Sydney Symphony Orchestra concert featuring violinist Grace Clifford. The Young Performer winner, State and National, Grace was awarded this as part of her prize. ALEXANDER WAITE - PIANO

Alexander Waite, 22 (AmusA and LMusA with Distinction) began learning the piano 11 years ago, after a brief stint on the electric keyboard. He grew up in Gippsland, regional Victoria with his parents and sister, but in 2011, moved to Sydney to commence studies at the Sydney Conservatorium with Dr Paul Rickard-Ford; he is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Music (Performance). A recipient of the Bessie Cook scholarship, Alex says this is one of his most valued achievements: “It was the result of a gap year in which I stayed at home and practised, and I am proud of my discipline throughout that year.” Alex has performed as a soloist, chamber musician and accompanist, taking top honours at regional Victorian eisteddfods and at the Sydney Eisteddfod. In 2012, he was nominated by the Conservatorium to perform a Theme and Variations recital at Willoughby as part of their Emerging Artists Series, and in 2013, participated in their Grand Western Tour across Central-West NSW. Alex’s hobbies include “playing the guitar, watching the cricket during summer and spending time with friends and girlfriend Leni.” EVEN YOUNGER ARTISTS RECORDING On the morning of Sunday 30 March, sounds from a myriad of instruments being furiously

practised floated along the walls and corridors of the station. Voice, violin, flute and clarinet (amongst others) competed with each other as the young artists squeezed in some last minute practice before their final recording in the Performance Studio. For many of them, the prospect of being recorded for broadcast live on air was an immensely exciting and valuable one, warranting a nervous buzz of tension and adrenalin. All performers gathered in the library for a pre-recording debrief and interview with Chloe Chung (program presenter) and myself. Going around the circle, each performer introduced themselves and their pieces, ranging from the Hungarian Dances of Brahms to the soliloquies of Gordon. Each performer’s competency and professionalism was epitomised in their passionate descriptions of how they came to learn and love their respective instruments. Take 15 year old Rachel, for example. Going into her 8th year of playing the trumpet, Rachel jumped at this recording opportunity after hearing about it from her teacher. But beyond her musical talents, Rachel also has a keen interest in acting. She starred in a school production of Les Miserables as Nadia, and hopes to pursue a career in acting. Sitting across from Rachel is 21 year old soprano Imogen-Faith, a Conservatorium student who was required to train in German pronunciation in the process of learning her religious song. She thinks that German is a beautiful language, but admits that pronunciation is hard. ImogenFaith is visiting Verona for two weeks later in the year as part of a Conservatorium chamber course, Estivo, and is very excited at this opportunity. The only percussion player in the group of 12 is 11 year old Mathew, who took up the marimba because he thought it “would be fun”, and also plays the piano.

At the conclusion of the group interview, the performers dispersed, some resuming their practising whilst the rest chatted amongst themselves. Chloe and I became involved in an animated discussion with piano players Kevin, Aidan and Denny (11, 13 and 16 respectively) about topics ranging from school, to the latest films and TV series, to all-time favourite books (of which I stood firmly by the timeless Harry Potter classics!) After another half an hour or so, the studio and recording engineers were ready to go.

FORGOTTEN AUSTRALIAN COMPOSERS

MAY SUMMERBELLE

It has been reckoned that in the 1890s Australia had the highest number of pianos per capita in the world. This allowed musically-inclined people to become performers, at various levels of ability, and some of them began to compose. Born Annie May Colette Summerbell at 253 Bourke St in Sydney on 8 November 1867, May was performing in public by age 23 and had had her first composition, a waltz for piano, published. The future seemed auspicious when she married Edwin Hubert Glasson at St Joseph’s Church in Woollahra on 18 January 1893. The groom presented his bride with a diamond brooch for her veil, and the bridesmaids, May’s sisters, with gold bangles. Husband and wife travelled to Carrington in Katoomba for their honeymoon, then on to Hobart and New Zealand before taking lodgings at the expensive Metropole Hotel in Sydney.

was sentenced to “ Edwin hang at Bathurst Gaol…

The problem was that Edwin was living considerably beyond his means. He sought to solve the issue by robbing the City Bank at Carcoar on the night of 24 September. Challenged by the awoken bank manager he hacked him and a young female to death with his tomahawk before escaping with a small amount of money. He was captured, tried, found guilty and sentenced to hang at Bathurst Gaol on 29 November. May was heavily pregnant with daughter Noela at the time.

The young pianist survived by giving music lessons, performing and dedicating a steady stream of published compositions to eminent persons from whom in return she received a degree of patronage. She also took up journalism. A devout Catholic, May married again on 4 July 1901, this time at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney to a widower named Stanton John Senior. They took up residence in Botany but some two years later Stanton kissed his 10

wife goodbye and headed to South Africa to make his fortune, leaving her to provide for one-year old twins. In time he wrote to her that he owned a gold mine, a motor car and a beautiful house. Living in poor circumstances, May responded with a registered letter asking for money. He sent none but was complicit in spreading the rumour that he had been killed on safari. May was a foundation member of the NSW Institute of Journalists on 28 December 1907 the year in which her piano piece “Beaux Yeux” was composed. Twelve months later it became popular and was taken up by the NSW State Military Band, the bands of the visiting American fleet and the band of HMS Powerful. Her vocal piece “Ave Maria Op.158” of 1908 gained numerous performances in various renditions. At the same time May was music critic for the Sunday Times newspaper who sent her to Melbourne in November of 1909 to describe the dresses worn during Australia’s most famous horse racing carnival. She composed “The Blue Pacific March” in 1911 and it was premiered at the Sydney Town Hall on 14 July by none other than the touring John Philip Sousa and his band. Things certainly were turning out fine until in January 1912 she received an unexpected visitor: her husband, who expressed his desire to resume their relationship. This “Hi honey, I’m home” routine did not go down well with May, particularly when he admitted to having fathered a child with a concubine. She applied for a divorce on the grounds of desertion and adultery on 24 April. A decree nisi was granted the following day. Upon the outbreak of the Great War, May began to compose patriotic songs, the proceeds from which she used to aid wounded Australian soldiers. When May announced that she would travel to England to promote her music in 1924 the esteem in which she was held could be gauged by the community’s response. She was given a farewell luncheon at Farmer’s Restaurant in Sydney by the Institute of Journalists on 1 February, a farewell tea party at The Ambassadors two days later, a testimonial at the Sydney Town Hall on 12 March during which she was presented with a cheque for 219 pounds 14 shillings and sixpence and a reception at the Wentworth Cafe by the Shakespeare Society (of which May had been a long time member) on 21 March during which she was presented with a silver card case. Despite taking some 100 compositions with her, her sojourn seems to have been largely unsuccessful and she returned to Sydney in November of the following year. Performances of her works became fewer as the years went by and she fell into obscurity, with her place and date of death not yet resolved clearly by genealogical trees but most probably at Willandra Private Hospital in Marrickville, Sydney sometime in 1948. -Stephen Pleskun History of Australian Composers Stephen Pleskun is the author of A Chronological History of Australian Composers and their Compositions.

Flashback with Derek Parker RHYTHM OF THE DANCE

Dancers have always had to be extremely musical - the art is, after all, the metamorphosis of music into movement, and if the movement is not in every way an accompaniment of the music the dancer fails, and should probably indeed not be a dancer at all. Two great ballerinas have talked to me about this but perhaps the dancer who had the most extraordinary understanding of music was an indifferent dancer, but became a great teacher and impresario. It was in 1913 that the dancers of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes were faced with the problem of dancing to Stravinsky’s monstrously strange score for Sacre de Printemps. Happy with the ballet scores of Tchaikovsky and Minkus and Drigo, which were second nature to them and imposed very few rhythmical difficulties, the dancers’ musicality was tested to the limit by the Stravinsky score. Nijinsky, the choreographer, seemed to understand it almost instinctively - but even the rehearsal pianist couldn’t get the score right, and Stravinsky himself had to take over, kicking the piano to emphasise the

rhythms. Diaghilev brought in a Polish dancer whose musicality he trusted to help the others. This was Marie Rambert, later to run for many years her own ballet company in London. An extraordinary woman - an insomniac who spent the nights learning all Shakespeare’s sonnets by heart - she managed to interpret the new seemingly eccentric tempi, yet even so at the first performance Nijinsky had to stand on a chair in the wings loudly counting the bars so that the dancers could keep to time.

A dancer without rhythm “might as well have no feet.

If many avowed music-lovers turn up their noses at opera - and they do - many more, I suspect, are not great enthusiasts for ballet. Nor are some conductors. Thomas Beecham, conducting a scene in Swan Lake, did so faster than it could possibly be performed. As the exhausted dancers tottered panting from the stage, he turned to the leader and said, “That made the blighters hop!” (He didn’t actually use the word “blighters”, but it’s probably near enough.) What links opera and ballet, however, is the intense knowledge and understanding of music shared by opera singers and ballet dancers.

Rambert was - though charming to outsiders - a tyrant in the classroom, and her insistence on musicality was complete. “A dancer without rhythm might as well have no feet,” she said imperiously. Her own feet were unquestionably dependable: I was talking to her once, towards the end of her life, on a number 88 bus when she realised she had missed her stop, simply got to her feet and jumped off the moving vehicle in the middle of Oxford Street. She did not fall over. I doubt if she fell over in her entire life. Tamara Karsavina, the first to dance the leading role in Sacre, had been the prima ballerina of the Kirov company in Leningrad. Far less wellknown in the West than Pavlova, she took over the part when the latter, terrified by the score, simply could not cope with it, and fled. She went on to create many parts to music that previous dancers would have found impossible - and which she herself found taxing: she told me how she and Ravel sat at the back of the stage while he tapped out the rhythms of a particularly difficult dance in Daphnis and Chloe.

Nureyev the “Little Karajan”

Vaslav Nijinsky

I never saw her dance of course, but as an old woman in her eighties every movement announced her musicality. Shakespeare said he “never saw a goddess go” - he never saw Karsavina. She once asked if I could use my influence to stop the BBC playing ballet music, as when she heard it she always started dancing around her kitchen. One of my last memories of her is at an enormous party for, I think, Fonteyn; at one moment in the evening, suddenly every noise in the room was stilled and everyone turned to the door - Karsavina had walked in, grace personified. I was fortunate enough to watch her and one of her partners, Stanislas Idzikovsky, take class (in an upstairs room of a pub in Shepherd’s Bush) and the vigour with which he thumped out the time on the floor with a heavy walking stick testified to his insistence on perfect timing.

The only dancer who actually became a conductor, as far as I know, was Rudolph Nureyev, who towards the end of his life conducted full ballets at the Met and the Los Angeles Opera House. He also conducted conventional scores with the Failoni Orchestra, and one Viennese critic dubbed him “Little Karajan”, which may have been slightly over the top, though indeed Karajan had encouraged him, and even offered to teach him. (There is a fascinating interview with him on the subject on YouTube.) There were bitter complaints when choreographers started using non-ballet scores for new works. Certainly, I can’t think that Isadora Duncan added much to Beethoven’s Ninth by dancing to it, and great liberties have been taken and they continue. On the other hand there are some ballets which interpret the music almost to perfection: one thinks of Ashton’s interpretation of Elgar’s Enigma Variations, or Macmillan’s Requiem, based on Fauré. Such ballets would not, however, impress us if they were performed by dancers who could not get to know and fall in love with the music, and were unable to grasp not only the composer’s intention, but understand how it has been realised. - Derek Parker

THE GUITAR: PAST AND PERSPECTIVES When, in the first half of the 20th century, Andrés Segovia’s vocation towards the guitar burst forth marking the beginning of his career - and his era - he was aware of the crucial relevance of the two most important aspects that would drive his efforts to either unprecedented success or to complete disaster: the target audience and the repertoire. Mainly, the repertoire was the keystone that would determine if a certain audience - carefully selected among the most prominent men of culture at the time - would show interest and would be moved by such an arrogant youth playing such a debased instrument. The results of Segovia’s choices are indelibly etched in the history of music.

repertoire: the actual, “Theinestimable, precious

In the last 100 years, the guitar more than any other instrument has attracted the attention of many composers, far more, in both quality and quantity than it did during its golden age in the 18th century. After the harmonic and instrumental innovations put in place by such eminent personalities as Debussy and Ravel - who incidentally never wrote a note for the guitar - numerous composers (seldom guitarists themselves) required an intimate yet colourful instrument to express their musical ideas: a little orchestra, that little orchestra that Berlioz identified a few decades earlier. The first call for a new original repertoire came from Andres Segovia, but his was not the only one. After and aside from him, almost every relevant guitarist has worked side by side with composers to contribute to the growth of the instrument’s repertoire; none more significantly so than the Italian guitarist and musicologist Angelo Gilardino, whose unequalled list of works as composer, editor or dedicatee represents without doubt the most important contribution to this field. Since the nineties, another Italian scholar, Vincenzo Pocci, undertook the enormous task of cataloguing the entire works for and with guitar written since 1900. His catalogue, consultable for free over the Internet, lists some 52,000 titles. Another publication worthy of attention is “Guitar’s top 100, a guide to classical guitar’s most recorded music”, by Canadian scholar Enrique Robichaud where we learn that among the entire recordings of the last thirty years it is possible to listen to an inordinate number of interpretation of “Recuerdos de la Alhambra” and “Romance Anonimo” (aka Jeux intredits) while most of the

more recent, and musically significant repertoire is conspicuously absent. Furthermore, in the last three years, the recording industry under the aegis of the most renowned labels, has released some of the most embarrassing guitar recordings to date. On one side, it appears that, according to the artistic directors of Sony Classical - the label that distributed Julian Bream and John Willams - the classical guitar is no more than a party instrument suitable to play tiny songs and rhetorical melodies; on another, Deutsche Grammophon - whose catalogue includes some historical guitar recordings of Yepes and Segovia - used the brilliant technique of a young Montenegrin guitarist to reheat another unmissed Aranjuez after showing with a certain pride that very same “Jeux intredits” for nothing less than guitar and orchestra.

history’s most important “ Did concert guitarist devote his life’s work in vain?

treasure of the guitar.

It is thus evident that the value of the heritage of Segovia has not been embraced nor given due consideration as it was intended. But can we say that that heritage died with its creator? Did history’s most important concert guitarist devote his life’s work in vain? Certainly not: despite the opinion of many musical institutions that ban the guitar from their programs without any attempt to check such a proposal. This appears an opportune time for a new rebirth of this instrument, and the signals of a golden dawn are strong and clear. It is undeniable

that, aside from the anachronistic endurance of many stale programs, a conspicuous number of young guitarists have begun following the paths of the great masters of the past. All over the world there are clever and talented guitarists endeavouring to create important projects aimed at exploring and promoting the most relevant new works, without limiting their efforts to the over-listened “hit parade”. This is the case in the work of Cristiano Porqueddu, whose recordings, cornerstones and inspiring masterworks for the new generation of guitar virtuosi, display a remarkably strong structure and insightful thoughtfulness in his selection of the music; or Luigi Attademo, whose idea of the guitar transcends the conception of music and refers to a wider humanistic environment; or Tillman Hoppstock whose musicological approach merged with an outstanding technique has brought the guitar to a new level of interpretation. The list of such audacious interpreters would be too long to compile here, but there is plenty of space for it to grow. There is a world yet to be discovered, much work to be done, and no time to lose. It is the precise responsibility of today’s guitarists to extend their exploration of the music that belongs to their instrument, to bring it into the light, to underline its immense value and give it to concert seasons all over the world - to create a good reason to reintroduce the guitar into concert programs, into the place where it belongs. - Ermanno Brignolo June 2014

CD Reviews THE ESSENTIAL ALED JONES I – Boy Soprano; II – Tenor ABC 480 9113 ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶ [✶ ] Essential to whom? First, no doubt, to lovers of the voice of the boy soprano. There is no doubt that Aled Jones probably possessed the purest and finest voice of its kind since Ernest Lough - though perversely O For The Wings Of A Dove appears on disc two, sung by the adult tenor voice. Young Aled however sticks as he always did to the tradition that what a boy soprano must sing are religious numbers: Hear My Prayer, Silent Worship, Panis Angelicus, the Lord’s Prayer and so on, though there are a few only semi-religious songs such as Bridge Over Troubled Water and some in Jones’ native Welsh which for all we know may be

rugby choruses, though it is doubtful whether anything so extrovert is included, for the vision is of a young choirboy in cassock and surplice, probably holding a prayer book and poised in front of an altar with flickering candles. He may have doffed the garments for disc two - his voice remaining the voice of a boy, if postpurbertal -  but the offerings are in the same vein: Lead, Kindly Light, Dear Lord and Father of Mankind, O Holy Night (eccentrically, I Dreamt That I Dwelt in Marble Halls makes a welcome unconsciously funny entrance in the middle of the concert - Mr Jones perhaps wisely omits the verse about knights pledging him their love on bended knee. So to the lovers of the boy’s voice we should add those firmly addicted to sentimental religiosity, and the only possible commendation of this two-disc set is that if this is the sort of thing you like, you will certainly like it.

✶✶✶✶✶ Like many other composers, Edvard Grieg was a great admirer of Mozart. So much so that, during some weeks of compositional inaction, he thought he’d have a go at writing a second piano part to go with some of Mozart’s piano sonatas. In these works the principal piano would play the sonata as written and the second piano would play along with Grieg’s underscore. Initially, he intended these to be purely for teaching purposes, but was so 16

pleased with the results that he allowed them to be published. In this recording Hungarianborn Australian pianist Julie Adam and long-time colleague Melbourne-born Daniel Herscovitch share the Mozart/Grieg lines in four sonatas and a fantasy and the result is most pleasing. Nothing is taken away from the brilliance of the Mozart originals, but Grieg lends a depth that makes the works even more satisfying. The second CD is taken up with Mozart’s Grand sextet Concertante in E flat; his Clarinet Quintet in A; and his Horn Quintet in E flat, all played by the ever admirable Australia Ensemble, who are based at the University of New South Wales. It’s been a long time really since one has been able to fault any of their performances! - Michael Morton-Evans

Both of Aled Jones’ voices are musical, carefully poised and unexceptional to the point of, well, yes, I fear, monotony. The almost exclusively religious content will commend the set to some listeners, and dampen the enthusiasm of others. The five stars are a homage to the former; for the latter, I would suggest a single star. - Derek Parker in fact it’s very hard to pigeon-hole the album really and that’s a good thing as it enables the listener to listen rather than pre-judge. Hagger’s compositions are well constructed, sometimes a little predictable but even then with some lovely harmonic changes as he takes the listener to an imagined perfect place to gather with friends and family. And that is just what is achieved here as Hagger joins with musical friends. Among those featured on the album are David Hirschfelder, Chong Lim and Elodie Sablier - the latter’s work bearing some similarity to Philip Glass in its repetitive simplicity albeit with more melodic development than Glass. The jewel of the album is a masterful creation from guitarist Tommy Emmanuel entitled Antonella’s Birthday - pure joy. - Nicholas Chaplin


CD Reviews MOZART: CLARINET CONCERTO; KEGELSTATT TRIO Martin Fröst BIS 1893

✶✶✶✶✶ A familiar face on the Australian concert scene, Martin Fröst is one of the world’s few wind players with an international career, who performs with all the major orchestras, as well as in chamber music and solo recitals. On this disc is music Mozart specifically wrote for one of the great clarinetists of the time, Anton Stadler, whose playing was said to perfectly imitate the human voice. Fröst easily emulates this characteristic. Directing The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Fröst shows not only exquisite skill in executing the ethereal solo lines of the ROLANDO VILLAZÓN MOZART London Symphony Orchestra/Pappano Deutsche Grammophon 479 2463

✶✶✶✶✶ Are a nine-year-old composer’s attempts at concert arias worth recording? The answer is yes, when an artist as extraordinary as Rolando Villazón is the performer. In fact those two pieces are perhaps the weakest on this extraordinarily entertaining disc of twelve Mozart rarities, most written for insertion into other composers’ scores. Quite apart from Villazón’s remarkable vocal performance, his interpretation of the lyrics is amazingly insighted and varied, from the real desperation of Misero!

Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A (K 622), but also in his leadership of this fine ensemble. His lyricism and phrasing is just extraordinary, with a tonal quality that is heavenly. On this recording, Fröst plays a modern reconstruction of a basset clarinet. In the first performance of the “Kegelstatt” Piano Trio No 2 in E flat (K 498), Stadler played clarinet, Mozart played viola and one of Mozart’s pupils played the piano. His trio perfectly captures the intimacy of the Viennese salon of the day. Whilst not a particularly virtuosic piece, this trio does some have some moments of technical challenge. With Antoine Tamestit (viola) and Leif Ove Andsnes (piano), and Martin Fröst (clarinet), the trio’s communication sees wondrous interplay of lines. The Allegro for Clarinet and String

Quartet in B flat (K 516c) completes the disc. As a stand-alone piece (completed by Robert Levin from a fragment), this work makes for a beautiful addition to the chamber repertory. - Barry Walmsley

Pappano - virtually a patter song – which will have brightened up Piccini’s L’astratto no end. An aria written for Pasquale Anfossi’s opera Il curioso indiscreto is a real find - and Villazón sings it with an aristocratic splendour of tone, while the London Symphony Orchestra under Pappano provides the kind of warm, caressing support for which one longs in the most delicious pages of the composer’s scores. This combination of singer and conductor is a real lesson in how this kind of disc should be presented, and I can think of no lover of Mozart, of opera, just of supreme vocal accomplishment, who would not want to possess it. A bonus disc contains generous extracts from Villazón’s complete recordings of Cosi fan Tutte and Don Guiovanni, with such colleagues as

Miah Persson and Angela Brower, Diana Damrau and Joyce DiDonato. - Derek Parker

Throughout time, humankind has sought to provide explanation and justification for the pains, joys and passions for life. Dimensions provides a series of works from seven composers for string orchestra which cascades the listener through a waterfall of emotional alternatives throughout its 52 minute duration. Deploration by Gregory Hutter, explores the grief felt as the result of the passing of a friend and mentor. It is a clearly defined work: Prelude, Fugue and Chorale and pays homage to Bach’s harmonic invention together with his own chromatic treatment of the various melodic lines. This idea of reflection is prominent throughout this CD. The French composer Louis Babin speaks of “taking a turn towards the embattled heart”

in Couleurs which deals with his confusion as a teenager and the lack of clarity in his own personal existence. Debussy’s The Girl with the Flaxen Hair is the most aesthetically pleasing work on this disc with its transcription being for clarinet and string orchestra. Clarinetist Richard Stoltzman’s description of the lushness of the string accompaniment is well justified and it brings a warmth and richness to this most attractive of Debussy’s melodies. This disc comes with a variety of interactive tools including online scores, composer biographies and even some ringtones! High school music teachers could certainly make use this material in their classrooms. - Frank Shostakovich June 2014

JAZZ CD REVIEWS Discourse with Kevin Jones

NICE ’N’ EASY Houston Person Highnote Hcd7257

✶✶✶✶✶ As I approach the autumn of my life, music has the habit of rekindling many memories, especially my halcyon days as a teenager. The years rolled back as I listened to the standout track on what is undoubtedly the best album I have heard from now 78-year-old tenor saxophonist Houston Person on this label. Originally written in 1912 as a classical composition called Melody In A Major by self-taught pianist and composer Charles G. Dawes, a future U.S. vice-president, it was given

DOWN HOME Zoot Sims Bethlehem BCP6051

✶✶✶✶

I first heard Zoot Sims early in my years as a jazz enthusiast guesting with the Boston orchestra of Herb Pomeroy on an album on the Roulette label called Life Is A Many Splendored Gig - it always is, listening to Zoot. The one track I almost wore out was the Count Basie staple It’s Sandman. No tenor player ever swung like Zoot! And on this 1960 reissue he opens with another two from the Basie book of the 1930s - breathing new fire and life into Jive At Five and Doggin’ Around. It’s a perfect beginning for what is essentially a hard-swinging blowing session free of ballads. Backed by a sympathetic rhythm section led by pianist Dave McKenna with the assistance of bassist Bobby Tucker and drummer Dannie

THE SONGS OF BOBBY TROUP Bethlehem 1030

✶✶✶✶ Remember Bobby Troup? To me he was the ultimate hipster and more importantly one songwriter who could actually sing - and a talented pianist. He was the epitome of West Coast cool with his clear laid back phrasing. I couldn’t get my kicks on Route 66 (he wrote it) but as this 1955 reissue reminds me his were some of the most satisfying sounds I grew up with. The title is a little misleading - maybe the songs were some he enjoyed the most. He explores eight numbers with lyrics by the masterful Johnny Mercer, including one he co-wrote with him - I’m With You. Troup didn’t have a great 18

Louis Armstrong had recorded it in 1951. Person’s big booting sound is tempered by tenderness and sensitivity, the ultimate in boudoir tenor, cushioned by Chuck Riggs’ vibes. The harmonic bonding of Riggs and the impressive pianist John DiMartino recalls the sound of the George Shearing Quintet but without the guitar as their playing epitomises the album’s title. The rapport between Houston, Ray Drummond’s bass and the drums of Lewis Nash are highlighted on the charging opening track, Louis Armstrong’s Someday You’ll Be Sorry.

Richmond, Zoot is in his element. He could make the same old standard songs sound brighter than any other tenor player I can recall. With his seemingly effortless sound and indomitable swing Zoot, who died in 1985 at the age of 59 of liver cancer, always sounded inspired, even when faced with a Dixieland war horse like Bill Bailey which also gives McKenna a chance to shine. The sentimentality of Goodnight Sweetheart is sacrificed with joyful abandon on the altar of swing. This is a finely honed set which some might call “meat and potatoes Zoot” - but it has flavour all its own. It also shows why the great Coleman Hawkins when asked about Stan Getz said: “I like Zoot. He swing!” - as he does here.

range but his smooth singing style has always appealed to me. He may not have been a Frank but he understood the lyrics as he shows with his bluesy approach to the Sinatra classic, One For My Baby (And One More For The Road). Cuckoo In The Clock is not only upbeat and refreshing, but fun as Troup belies the bauble’s lightweight status. Skylark is mellow and That Old Black Magic swings in a subtle vein. Add cool instrumental arrangements of the haunting Laura and Jeepers Creepers, the solos of valve trombonist Bob Enevoldsen and the outstanding guitar of Howard Roberts and you have one of the most enjoyable albums I have heard in the himself as a television compere and producer past 12 months. Troup had limited commercial and then an actor. And he was married to Julie recording success but would reinvent London! There are compensations.


SWINGING ON THE VINE PEPPIN’ WITH PEPS

It could have been so much better. I wipe the sweat from my brow and take a sip from the iced mineral water. I offer to fill Big J’s bowl but he glares at me with his piggy eyes and covers his bowl with his feet. These new-fangled things like computers . . . I don’t understand them. At least the computer and I have one thing in common - we don’t like one another. But at last I have found YouTube and may find some comfort and sanity from “The Night of the Bogans” here in my Hunter Valley hideaway with the music of Benny Goodman. And there it is on the screen: Goodman’s final big band in its second gig playing at the opening of the Marriott Hotel in Times Square in 1985. In the reed section sits a bearded and nervous Ken Peplowski, the featured tenor saxophone soloist. Peplowski was in awe of Goodman who “had a real presence. At concerts people would start crying just to see him, let alone hear him play. Not many people had that kind of magnetism. Frank (Sinatra) had it, maybe Ella (Fitzgerald) but very few others.” After arriving in New York in either 1981 or 1982, he’s bad on dates, Peplowski played with many of the Big Apple’s rehearsal bands made up of the cream of the city’s studio musicians and first-class jazz soloists who had one aim - to play good arrangements. He became a regular member of one of the best which was led by reed player Loren Schoenberg who had an incredible library of big band music. He not only had somehow acquired many of Goodman’s original charts but had many others, including some rare ones by Duke Ellington and some interesting ones which had been played by the Boyd Raeburn band in the mid-1940s. As Goodman was serious about coming out of retirement and playing with a regular big band again, Schoenberg, who was his secretary, said: ‘’Why don’t you audition my band.” The band members, many of them nervous because they had heard so many unflattering tales of Goodman’s behaviour, gathered at a rehearsal studio - but no Goodman. Because he was so late, Schoenberg thought he had forgotten about the audition or just changed his mind and so decided to use the four hours in the studio by playing some of the charts with Peplowski on clarinet. As Peplowski tells it: “I was playing Benny’s parts in front of the band. I had my eyes closed as I was soloing but I knew when Goodman came into the room - the whole band tensed up. I just wilted in mid-solo. Benny walked up and took charge of the band - and he really liked it.” Goodman hired the whole orchestra but soon afterwards would sack Schoenberg from his

Ken Peplowski

own band. Many of the musicians were fired and rehired- but Peplowski and lead altoist Jack Stuckey were the only two who were never sacked. Watching Goodman rehearse a band was a real lesson for Peplowski. “We could go through a four-hour rehearsal and not even get through one chart. He was so demanding. (At one rehearsal the musicians spent four hours on the first few bars of Fletcher Henderson’s arrangement of Blue Skies.) He developed a technique, and as far as I know he was the first guy to do it - having the reed section play, not only passages, but the whole chart - without the aid of a rhythm section! “If you didn’t have a strong sense of time, you either developed one very quickly or you were out of the band. The Fletcher Henderson and Jimmy Mundy charts Benny loved all had a strong internal sense of time so that when the band came together it lifted the performance.” The charts were all about call and response; the way they were written, certain sections would perform like a rhythm section. “He really sharpened us up, turning us into a Benny Goodman band. It was phenomenal to be part of it and witness him doing it. He was as tough on himself as he was with the band members. He never stopped practising. And he never stopped thinking about the arrangement - charts he had played for more than 50 years. Yet he was still trying to find the right tempo! It

was fascinating to watch him make interesting little changes. “He was a mercurial guy. Part of him you couldn’t understand and it left you wondering why he did certain things. But there was also another side to him. He offered to produce a record of mine, something I did not find out until after he had died. He had become much mellower, sending us thank you notes and bonuses which, if you talked to the older musicians, was unheard of. He was a very complex guy. I don’t think anybody will completely figure him out and why should they? He was a great artist and that’s all that counts.” Goodman showed that jazz could be played on the clarinet without sacrificing that beautiful classical sound. As a clarinet player, what first drew Peplowski to Goodman? Three things: his unbelievable rhythmic drive, his great sense of melody and warmth as a player. “He played Poor Butterfly for 40 years but every time he played it, it sounded like he was presenting it for the first time, still with all the sense of love for the song. He had a way of playing a melody with a sense of forward motion. All great artists had it. Sinatra had this too, singing the same songs for years but still making them sound fresh.” I gaze at the screen. Peplowski is taking several choruses on I Would Do Anything For You. I demolish a glass of red. It’s a cleanskin. I look at Big J. He grudgingly takes his feet off the bowl as I fill it . . . - Patrick D Maguire June 2014

June Program Highlights SPOTLIGHT ON SIR CHARLES MACKERRAS Saturday 7 June 9.30am-11.30am Sir Charles Mackerras, one of Australia’s most distinguished musicians, died on 14 July 2010 at the age of 84 and was still conducting major concerts until very close to his death. The Guardian’s obituary called him “One of the most versatile, adventurous and generally admired and respected conductors of the last six decades.” His international career was characterised by the breadth and depth of his musical scholarship, his rhythmic energy and tireless quest for perfection. Born in New York State in 1925, Mackerras was brought up and educated in Sydney, studying oboe, piano and composition at the NSW Conservatory. His first job was as a casual oboist with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and he became its principal oboist in 1946. He moved to Britain in 1947 and worked with many of its major orchestras, starting with the Sadler’s Wells Opera. In 1973 he returned to Australia to conduct the opening concert for the Sydney Opera House. His relationship with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra spanned sixty years and he became the first Australian to be appointed its Chief Conductor between 1982 and 1985.

HISTORIC RECORDINGS: DINU LIPATTI (1917 – 1950) Saturday 14 June 1pm-2pm Dinu Lipatti was an exceptionally talented Romanian classical pianist whose career was cut short by his early death, from Hodgkin’s disease, at the age of 33. Born into a musical family in Bucharest, he studied at the Bucharest Conservatoire. At 13, he performed the Grieg Piano Concerto in A minor which is included in this afternoon’s program. He made his recital

debut at the Ecole Normale in Paris at 18 and won prizes for composition in 1937 but his career was interrupted by World War II. He fled to Geneva where he became a professor of piano at the Conservatory. From 1947 his health declined but he continued to perform and record up until his final performance at the Besancon Festival in France in September 1950. Lipatti’s piano playing was said to be appreciated for the absolute purity of his interpretations and his masterly pianistic technique. AMAZING MENAHEM (PRESSLER) AGE 90 Tuesday 17 June 2.30pm-4pm

Menahem Pressler

Menahem Pressler, the German born IsraeliAmerican pianist, is for many synonymous with the Beaux Arts Trio which he founded in 1955. Born in 1923 in Magdeburg, Germany, Pressler fled Germany with his family for Palestine in 1939. His career as a pianist was launched when he won the Debussy International Piano Competition in San Francisco in 1946 followed shortly afterwards by a recital with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy. The new Beaux Arts Trio performed at the Berkshire Festival (now Tanglewood) in 1955 and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2005 with special CD releases. The Trio has recorded the entire standard repertoire for piano trios. Although there were some changes in the other members of the trio over the years, Pressler was its pianist until the final concert at Tanglewood in 2008. He also worked as a freelance pianist for many years with other distinguished chamber music groups including the Juilliard, Emerson and Guaneri string quartets and taught for nearly sixty years at Indiana University. Overall he has made more than 50 recordings with the Beaux Arts Trio and more than 30 other recordings, most with major labels, indeed an extraordinary career. WOODWIND THROUGH THE AGES Saturday 28 June 2pm-3.30pm Celebrating the versatility and range of the woodwind family of instruments, this program includes examples from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries of both types of

woodwind - flutes and reed instruments. Flutes, both open and closed, produce sound by directing a focused stream of air across the edge of a hole in a cylindrical tube. Reed instruments produce sound by focusing air into a mouthpiece which then causes a reed, or reeds, to vibrate. Reed instruments include oboes, clarinets and bassoons all of which are represented in this afternoon’s program, as well as saxophones, cor anglais, bagpipes and other less well known instruments. In a modern orchestra, the woodwind section typically includes piccolo, flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons, with occasional expansion to include a saxophone. The unique sounds of wind instruments have long attracted composers among them Zelenka, Bach, Schumann and Albinioni who are represented in this afternoon’s program. COUSINS: ANDREAS AND BERNHARD ROMBERG, MUSICIANS AND COMPOSERS Monday 30 June 1pm-2pm German cellist and composer, Bernard Romberg (1767-1841) and his cousin, violinist and composer, Andreas Romberg (1769-1821) toured Europe together and were both members of the Munster Court Orchestra and the Court Orchestra of the Prime Elector in Bonn where they met the young Beethoven. Bernard had early cello lessons from his father, who played bassoon and cello, and later in his life made significant improvements to the design of the cello. He composed for strings, cello and other instruments including the Flute Concerto in B minor (op 17) being played today. Andreas worked in various other places including Paris and Hamburg becoming central to Hamburg musical life. Eventually, in 1815, he became Music Director of the Court of the Duke in Gotha, Thuringia. He composed many works for violin, strings and flute including the Clarinet Quintet op 57 (1819) which will be heard in this program. - Cynthia Kaye/Frank Morrison NOT TO BE MISSED Tuesday 10 June 2pm-4pm A Romantic Era Pot-Pourri Monday 16 June 1pm-3pm The Falling Leaves Saturday 21 June 9.30am-11.30am Spotlight on Water Music Sunday 22 June 2pm-4pm Sunday Special: Out of Africa!

Iphigénie lives as a priestess with the Taurian people after being rescued from death by Diana. Thoas, King of Tauris, feels his life is in danger and asks her to sacrifice two shipwreck victims who are Oreste and Pylade. Iphigénie learns from Oreste of the violent deaths of her mother and her father; assuming Oreste is dead, she prays for him. But as she is about to ritually kill him, she sees his similarity to her brother. An angry Thoas tries to sacrifice Oreste and Iphigénie but Pylades arrives and kills Thoas. Diana descends to promise the Greeks a safe journey home. Nebra, J. Overture to Iphigenia en Tracia (1747). El Concierto Espanol/Emilio Moreno. 7 Glossa GCD920311

Falstaff

Falstaff, at a party uninvited, flirts with Mrs Ford and Mrs Slender. His servant Bardolf complains about his master sending love-letters to the ladies and. warns the husbands. Through raising suspicions, teasing husbands, disguises and a faked assignations, the women with maid Betty pretend Ford is coming and hide Falstaff in a laundry basket, which is thrown into the Thames. Mrs Ford wants to punish her husband for jealousy but the ladies reveal their tricks to the husbands. Falstaff arrives at midnight in the forest as a hunter and is tortured by the disguised couples until he renounces his lechery. Rimsky-Korsakov, N. Mozart and Salieri, op 48. Musical drama in two scenes. Libretto by the composer after Pushkin. First performed Moscow,1898 MOZART: Avram Andreev, ten SALIERI: Pavel Gerdjikov, bar Bulgarian National Choir & RSO/Stoyan Angelov. Fidelio 1827 45 The composer Antonio Salieri broods over the contrast between his long struggle as a composer and the effortless genius of Mozart. A meeting with Mozart intensifies his jealousy, seeing Mozart’s frivolity. Salieri invites Mozart to dinner and gives him poisoned wine. Mozart tells of a stranger’s commission to write a Requiem and plays some to Salieri, who is moved. Still unrepentant, he is disturbed as Mozart leaves remarking that genius and evil are incompatible. 23:30 MISSION: PARAGUAY Or zip it with Zipoli Zipoli, D. Adagio.
