EDITOR’S DESK Youth and emerging talent are the theme of this issue beginning with our cover story on Pete Hawkes. Sascha Kelly meets up with Hawkes in his hometown of Melbourne to talk with the man who, two years ago, was recognised by National MUSICOZ as an “Australian music legend”. Hawkes crosses musical boundaries and sums up his approach with these words - “in my mind there is just music and all options should be available”. The inaugural Australian Cello Awards comes to its conclusion at the end of this month and we meet the three young Australian and New Zealand finalists coming from Europe to compete for the generous $60,000 prize purse. The event, instigated by Roland Gridiger, lawyer, businessman and Chairman of Music and Opera Singers Trust, has attracted the highest level of endorsement from outstanding identities such as John Painter, Catherine Hewgill and Susan Blake. Fine Music 102.5 has the privilege of broadcasting the event live from the Verbrugghen Hall at the Sydney Conservatorium. Tickets are available to the public – see page 11 for details. In our own competition, we profile the semi-finalists of the Fine Music Young Virtuoso Award whose performances go to air this month, and there’s more still on emerging artists with the Sydney Youth Orchestra trumpeting their new season commissions - page 8. All at Fine Music were sad to hear of the recent death of Claudio Abbado. He will not only be remembered as one of the world’s greatest conductors, but also for his staunch support of young musicians. Another loss, closer to home, was felt in the arts world with the passing of Mayor of Willoughby, Pat Reilly. The mayor was the driving force behind the construction of the multi-million dollar Concourse Chatswood - a world class hub for the performing arts. A perfect example, and one of the highlights on the Concourse’s program this year will be the Willoughby Symphony’s Night at the Opera – a Verdi Gala under conductor Nicholas Milton. The concert features arias from Verdi’s classic operas with guests – soprano Eva Kong and tenor Martin Buckingham. Finally, from all at Fine Music, a hearty congratulations to Patrick Thomas MBE on his Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for his significant service to music. The retired conductor has been a long term supporter of the station as well as a programmer and contributor to this magazine.

Moments Musicales - Operatic Daze Part I Eminent operatic director John Copley always asked for both Peter Northwood and I whenever he was casting the actors at the Sydney Opera House. He was a lovely man and is still very much with us although now approaching his 81st year. We first met on the set of Rigoletto which he had been asked to revive in the late 70s. The cast included the late Bob Allman in the eponymous role and a very young Yvonne Kenny making her debut performance in Australia as Gilda. The Duke was sung by a Mauritius-born tenor Henri Wilden. Rigoletto was the first opera my grandfather inculcated me into from the formative age of five by playing and re-playing his 78s of the opera over and over again. “Cortigiani vil razza danata” is still one of my favourite Verdi arias. Being an actor in operatic productions, I wasn’t allowed to sing but we were often asked to “fishbowl” (miming the words being sung by the chorus) whenever we faced the audience. One such time was when Copley directed Massenet’s Manon which was sung by the delectable Glenys Fowles with Richard Greager as her disturbed “Des Grieux”. My “fishbowling” must have been impressive because Glenys later admitted she thought I was a member of the chorus. My tour de force, however, came when Copley chose me to play the part of the falconer in Lucia di Lammermoor. I also played the curate who marries a highly reluctant Lucia to Arturo. My first entrance meant being dragged on stage and repeatedly facially assaulted (another word for slapped about mercilessly) by Lucia’s brother Enrico in a vain attempt to find Lucia’s lover Edgardo. Enrico was played by the late John Fulford, a gentle giant of a baritone who wouldn’t hurt a fly let alone a petrified falconer, so it took quite a bit of persuasion to convince him to let his palms berate my unsuspecting cheeks. Eventually we worked out a system whereby his hands would flay on to the palm of my upstage hand which was obscured from the audience. But Murphy’s Law decreed a flaw in our scheme because one night Fulford flayed too energetically, his long nails slit the top of my lips and the ensuing fountain of blood curved into the air - narrowly missing a couple of unsuspecting orchestra members! More on my operatic daze at a later date. - Randolph Magri-Overend


The books which could vaguely be catalogued under “music” are pretty serendipitous, picked up with no particular object in view except that they seem likely to be interesting. There’s Dr Charles Burney’s account of his tour of Europe in 1770 - a splendid travel book apart from his accounts of the musical state of the continent. The book impressed Dr Johnson, who based his own Tour of the Hebrides on it - “I had that clever dog Burney’s Musical Tour in my eye,” he admitted.

Berlioz - “set apart, physically and mentally . . . like no-one else..”

prima donnas are more “ deadinteresting than saints..

The delight they offer is that, like all the best historical documents, they transport you to another age, and do so with enormous wit. Shaw (who wrote his weekly criticisms for a long defunct periodical, The World) starts as he means to go on, with a bitter complaint that he has heard Gounod’s Faust not less than ninety times during the past ten years, but that to hear Tristan und Isolde he has to cross the North Sea, though “every errand-boy in New York can whistle it from end to end.” Four years later he ends his last column by lambasting production standards at Covent Garden, pointing out that “at Bayreuth the heroine does not die in the middle of the street on a lodging-house sofa, nor does the tenor step out of a window with a rope ladder attached to it, and openly walk off at the level of the chamber floor. In between we get a vivid picture of English musical life in the 1890s, with Shaw trying to push it along towards a degree of seriousness,

when ladies do not sit in the stalls with stuffed birds in their hats, and leading tenors do not stride down-stage in the middle of an act to deliver encores from a totally different work from that in which they are appearing.

There is no other critic half as entertaining as G.B.S., and as he himself points out his books are essential reading for music-lovers to whom “dead prima donnas are more interesting than saints, and extinct tenors than mighty conquerors.” One’s favourite books often come to the shelves by chance: I would never have supposed when I bought it off some stall or other that I would find Edward Holmes’s biography of Mozart inestimably the best and most entertaining, though first published in 1841. Of course many more recent books have unearthed more detail, new discoveries; but Holmes has real breadth of feeling, the ability to distinguish between the man and his work, and his sympathy with the subject ensures that the biographer ideally fits the biography. Incidentally I can’t recommend too highly Greene’s Biographical Encyclopaedia of Composers - which consists of over two thousand biographies - some surprisingly lengthy - of every composer one ever heard of, and many one has not. David Mason Greene has a marvellous ear for quirky, unusual anecdotes, and the book is a reference work unequalled as a bedside book. (Another? - why not? What are bedside tables for?)

G. Bernard Shaw

When, a lifetime ago, I resigned from my job as a reporter on a local newspaper in England to become drama critic on a daily, my kind colleagues asked me what I would like as a present - apart from the obligatory Cornish pewter tankard inscribed by the editor. I think they were a little bemused when I chose a three volume set of the collected daily music criticisms of Bernard Shaw: Music in London, 1890-94. But I thought then - and still think - that these are the most entertaining of all possible bedside books for anyone who cares about music.

Musical autobiographies are many and varied: not so much of performers - relatively few singers or musicians have led really exciting lives, and I don’t think there is a single volume of autobiography by a fiddler or a tenor, a pianist or a soprano to equal, for instance, the memoirs of Hector Berlioz. Sacheverell Sitwell wisely described him as “set apart, physically and mentally . . . like no-one else who has ever existed.” His account of his life is full of pain - the pain of unfulfilled love, of unfulfilled performances, of appalling setbacks, violent outbursts (mostly justified against his enemies; a true picture of genius under stress. A slightly eccentric but delightful “autobiography” is Tchaikovsky’s - the book given that title by its editor: it is actually a collection of the composer’s letters to his family, and it is endlessly revealing about the man and his work. Then there are the wonderfully rackety memoirs of the Irish tenor Michael Kelly, perhaps the finest tenor of his age, who ended up running Covent Garden opera house. Here is a torrent of anecdotes, a superb picture of the theatres of his time, metropolitan and provincial: the rudeness, the civility, the sustained mickey-taking. Kelly became a close friend of Mozart and his wife, and his memoirs contain perhaps the most lively character sketch of the composer, “remarkably fond of punch, of which I have seen him take copious draughts” - fond too of billiards: he had a good billiard table in his house, and “many and many a game have I played with him, but always came off second best.” Well, most people came off second best, when trying to compete with Mozart. - Derek Parker March 2014

“ Secrets Vows and Lies

Born in Newcastle, Hawkes taught himself guitar as a teenager and began playing his first professional gigs at the age of sixteen. At university, Hawkes didn’t pursue his musical interests, but kept performing in his free time. It was during this time that he started writing his own songs, including them in his sets. One song, A Housewife’s Lament, was getting a lot of attention, and soon he and his small band were all playing a whole repertory of selfcompositions. The idea of a recording was suggested, and Hawkes debut album “Secrets Vows and Lies” was completed in the mid1990s, and a tour soon followed. Hawkes knew that he would have to venture outside Canberra if he was going to reach his potential as a performing guitarist. He underwent the almost traditional pilgrimage overseas, to resettle in London. After a performance on Jools Holland’s TV show, the album started attracting massive attention. Professionally, there was great interest in Hawkes as a guitarist.

Pete Hawkes is already settled in the morning sun, enjoying a cup of coffee when I arrive for our arranged meeting time. Before I know it, we’ve been chatting for ten minutes about my life, when I spot the time. I clumsily try to redirect the conversation. “Oh that’s right,” Hawkes laughs, “maybe you should ask the questions!” With this level of curiosity and inquisition, it’s not hard to understand why this man’s music straddles so many different genres and borrows from so many cultures. In addition to being one of Australia’s most prolific composers (784 recordings to date), he’s also one of our most diverse. In 2002, he received Songwriter of the Year at the 1233 ABC Newcastle Music Awards, and followed this in 2009 with a win in the instrumental category. 4

Even a cursory browse through his releases on iTunes demonstrates the scope of his capabilities: four pages of albums that feature Celtic, jazz, ragtime, folk, ambient and classical styles. And there is no rest for him yet, a new release is coming out on 14 February - Pete Hawkes: The Jazz Collection.

“…an Australian music legend.

For all his achievements and accolades, composer Pete Hawkes remains unknown to many music lovers. Writer Sascha Kelly tracks down the prolific composer in his home town of Melbourne and sheds light on the man and his music.

Curious, I load up his album “Witchcraft”, and soft, ambient strings serenade me as I move about the house. Later I’m more incredulous, is it the same composer I wonder as I listen to Hawke’s “The Jazz Chronicles”? It’s no wonder then that National MUSICOZ recognised him as an Australian music legend at the 2012 awards. Melbourne broadcaster and music reviewer, Tony Bates said that Hawkes was “one of Australia’s most creative and interesting composers for acoustic music to emerge in the last decade” and likened his contribution to music as significant as Charlie Parker,  Charles Mingus,  Richard Thompson  and  Louis Armstrong. So just who is this “legend” of Australian composition, unknown still to so many of us, yet right under our noses?

The only problem was, Hawkes suddenly became aware his heart was no longer in performing. “I decided to lay low for a while, so I went to Russia for four months.” I’m fascinated. Russia seems rather a detour from the standard tourist path. “I can speak enough Russian to get by. I spent a lot of time there playing in clubs and hotels. The Russian people have a beautiful naivety about being a musician. They are poor to begin with, so they feel they might as well be poor musicians. Some of the jazz musicians feel that getting to play music is payment enough, they don’t need money.” Hawkes hesitates for a moment. “I’m not advocating it as an ideal we should aspire to, but Russians have different expectations from their lots in life.” After Russia, Hawkes boarded the Trans-Siberian railway and made his way further east. “I got to China, started playing and was really enjoying my time there. Long story short however, the officials didn’t like that I was performing jazz, and I had to come home to Australia.” Now settled in Melbourne, Hawkes loved his time overseas but welcomes being back in the sunshine. “I loved travelling, and you can hear a lot of the influence of different cultural music in my writing.” There’s no point trying to label or categorise Hawke’s discography. He writes prolifically, and every track on each album

Hawkes says he constantly has music on his mind. “I’m never short of ideas, it’s just a matter of exercising them out, by writing them down and fleshing them out.”

In my mind there is just music and all options should be available.

Listening to his output, much of this music could be performed by classical string quartets, duos and soloists. I’m surprised I haven’t come across Hawke’s music before now, so I venture an opinion. Has the classical scene struggled to find a place for his compositions, because it’s difficult to define and label his work? Hawkes agrees. “Jazz and folk are built on performer-composers, and the musicians are trained and educated in a tradition that leaves them open to having creative input into the score.” I concur. Hawkes has developed as a performer-composer, and this background is almost the opposite of what is taught to me as a conservatorium graduate, where you are trained to adhere to the score. But he doesn’t identify himself as a pure jazz or folk composer either. “In my mind, there is just music, and all options should be available.”

known, traditional composer’s piece, like Bach or Mozart, could be the headliner for that performance.

just need to cultivate “ Weour own creativity..

blends all that he’s been exposed to. His music is best described as a gentle, appealing fusion of jazz, folk and gypsy music, often played on traditionally classical instruments.

“Of course, this needs to be combined with an education program as well. And make no mistake; the music that’s performed from the Western Canon is wonderful and beautiful. We just need to cultivate our own creativity and ensure that classical music gets the opportunity to evolve as well.” Hawkes own style of composition has evolved as well. He used to just write music prolifically, but now he thinks about it differently. “I usually know what instrumentation I want to write for, and I have a specific idea of where the first performance will be. You have the compulsion to write, and you use so much energy in perfecting it. By thinking about its completion, it makes that process more gratifying when you know where this effort is taking you. “You come to the understanding that it will be hard. Mozart was pretty good at what he did, and he still didn’t die in advantageous circumstances. “And never lose the love of the music. For me, it’s a compulsion, I have to write and I have to make music. You don’t retire from music, and I know I’ll be doing this until I’m ninety.” - Sascha Kelly

All of Pete Hawkes’ back catalogue is now available on iTunes. Don’t know where to start? Here are just a few of the titles available Pete Hawkes: The Jazz Collection New release available from 14 February Witchcraft – A wonderful collection of gentle string and guitar compositions, with singing melodies and beautiful and wellconstructed harmonic ideas. Melancholy Cello – As the title suggests. Beautiful for an afternoon in the house – with a cup of tea, or maybe something stronger. Double Diversity – The perfect taster. Hawkes’ blended style is no more evident than on this disc, with celtic, jazz and folk flavours. Pete Hawkes: His Finest Classical Works Songs of Gypsy Russia – Reflecting his time spent living and playing there. Lost Soul’s Entwined – Inspired by musicians who have met an early demise, this is Hawkes’ haunting strings, acoustic and electronic guitar elegy.

So how does a young, or unknown composer, get their classical compositions heard? Hawkes thinks that’s the other difficulty he’s encountered with the strict “classical” music scene, and something that can hopefully change. “It’s really difficult, primarily for financial reasons. The big orchestras play wonderful music by the old masters, because the audiences know and love those pieces, but a new composer is only going to get ‘put on the map’ by being exposed to the size of audience that attends those big orchestral concerts.” This is the dilemma of orchestral programming. How responsible are orchestras for promoting contemporary music and emerging composers? After all, audiences can’t know whether they like something if they haven’t heard it yet. It’s a hurdle that Hawkes has experienced firsthand. “We did a tour and played some of my purely classical pieces. I’d previously recorded them and released them, but all of a sudden the response was immense. I realised that it was only because people hadn’t had a chance to hear them yet.” So how do we go about it? “Maybe we could be the ‘supporting act’ format, used by popular music. A new composer could be played in a short 40 minute set, and maybe a more well-

OUD MASTER – Joseph Tawadros Internationally acclaimed Egyptian-Australian oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros, is known for his virtuosity and eclectic compositions. His unique voice and songs cross boundaries of world, middle-eastern, jazz and classical genres. After nine nominations for ARIA Awards, he finally picked up consecutive wins in 2012 and 2013 for Best World Music Album. The first was for “Concerto of the Greater Sea” - a collaboration with the ACO and Richard Tognetti. The more recent winner - “Chameleons of the White Shadow” was reviewed in Fine Music Magazine by Joshua McNulty who praised the accessibility of the album’s music which he described as “tantalizing in both its energy and its mystery - a masterwork of eclecticism.” The tracks featured performances of Béla Fleck (banjo), Richard Bona (electric bass), and Joseph’s brother James (req & bendir), among others. Here we catch up with the master oudist to find out about his music and inspirations. Destined to be a musician? No, music is one of those careers you don’t really plan, it just happens, and is a privilege and blessing if it happens. The music I create is… Music, not leaning towards any ethnicity or genre just music. Albums that stand out… I am proud of all of them and it’s hard to pick one. Each album has something different to say and is a different line up each time, so it’s always exciting to see what each album brings on completion. Foundations and inspirations… My musical training is on the oud and the Arabic maqam (modal) system, so that is the basis of all my compositions. The oud is an amazing instrument and I would love to see more youth get into the instrument and its repertoire. I love jazz and listening to it, but I’m just as fond of classical music and other genres. I get inspired by fine musicianship and musicians that have something to say emotionally. On my albums, I seek out particular musicians for the particular vision I have and can envisage what they bring. Listening to… I love Vivaldi and the Baroque period, Astor Piazzolla for his energy and compositions and John Abercrombie for his taste and uniqueness. Then I have the Arabic oud players and singers that I love like Oum Kalsoum, Abdel Wahab, Farid Al Attrache and Riyad al Sunbati. The composing process… Compositions just happen, a theme is created sometimes while I’m practising and I will develop that with time, edit it and give it

shape. I can always do better, grow technically and explore what the oud has to offer. I record an album a year and it’s great to see how I developed technically, musically and compositionally over the years. Artistic balance - self-doubt? confidence? I love composing and performing and I’m in a blessed position, but I think any artist that wants to keep growing needs to always doubt, but believe that they can improve. You have to believe in yourself but always do things with the right intention. Highlights… There are many - the albums that I’ve recorded in New York are pretty special - recording and touring with jazz legends like John Abercrombie, Jack DeJohnette, John Patitucci, Béla Fleck, Richard Bona and Roy Ayers. Touring and recording my orchestral works at 22 with the Australian Chamber Orchestra was pretty special too. A special buzz… I think performing for Mick Jagger at the Jodhpur International folk festival last year was pretty cool, then to be introduced to him by the Maharajah of Jodhpur was a highlight. Also reaching the final four as a nominee for Young Australian of the Year 2014 was an honour. The best bits… Meeting people, hearing their stories and travelling. Sharing my emotions with people I don’t know is also an interesting feeling especially when they get it. Tough times? Music is a tough industry and is one where you need a lot passion and determination to keep doing it as a profession. As an oud player there

are many doors closed to you but you have to keep going and believe they will open to you at some point. Outside of music… Most of my life is music related but I love writing poetry and comedy. [Editor, displaying his comedic edge, Tawadros’ entertained the crowd following his first ARIA Award win with this - ‘’After 10 years and nine nominations, I think it’s great the music industry is finally trusting an Arab with a sharp object; it’s not like an Egyptian needs another pyramid,’’ he joked.] At your peak? Peak or success is for others to judge, accolades are for others to say if I’m worthy or not, but for the time being, I love what I do and am very passionate about the oud. It’s a privilege and blessing that shouldn’t be taken for granted. - Lizzie Herbert On Air On 5 March 2pm. Tawadros joins Fine Music in studio as a guest of In Conversation with Michael Morton-Evans. Tawadros’ composition Oasis from first ARIA awardwinning “Concerto of the Greater Sea” album can also be heard in the Artist of Choice - Richard Tognetti, Diversions in Fine Music program which airs on 25 March 9am. The 2012 album was in collaboration with the ACO and Tognetti. In Concert Joseph Tawadros performs with brother James (req - Egyptian tambourine) and Matt McMahon (piano) 8 March 7.30pm.

The Sydney Youth Orchestra offers a concert experience full of energetic vibrancy. Here Aimee Palfreyman gives us a preview of this year’s offerings and highlights. Bows are rosined, pencils are sharpened and fresh scores sit patiently on adjusted stands. It’s the beginning of a new year for the young and talented musicians of the Sydney Youth Orchestra and this year’s program will be one the most exciting yet. In 2014, SYO presents a diverse series of concerts showcasing bright young talent together with world class soloists.


“ We have to promote new music..

Max McBride, SYO’s Artistic Director and Chief Conductor, has curated a contrasting and daring program which boasts a selection of artist collaborations with new commissioned Australian works. McBride describes the program as “a balancing act between the war horses of Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Dvoˆrák and the large choral works, together with works of contemporary Australian composers.” He places much importance too on the orchestra commissioning and performing new Australian works. “We have to promote new music. Our colleagues deserve recognition and their work needs to be performed.” The season includes the work of several such composers: a piano concerto by Gerard Brophy, a composition by emerging composer Lachlan Skipworth and the highly anticipated work by Matthew Hindson, which will be performed in collaboration with the Philharmonia Choirs at the Sydney Opera House. The first of four concerts, at the Concourse Chatswood in March, features the new Brophy Piano Concerto performed by the young and brilliant Canadian pianist, Avan Yu. Winner of the 2012 Sydney International Piano Competition, Yu has already established himself as one of Canada’s most promising young pianists and has aroused the attention of audiences worldwide. At the Sydney piano competition, Yu was also lauded for best performance of a work by Beethoven and for the best Mozart concerto. Brophy is well known for working with artists from other cultures and disciplines and over the years has received awards and recognition in Australia and overseas, as well as an assortment of composer residencies, grants and scholarships. In this concert, which will also be presented at Riverside Theatre in Parramatta, the Orchestra performs Sibelius’ Symphony No.2 and Mozart’s Symphony No.34 in C, along with the Brophy. In June, SYO returns to City Recital Hall Angel Place and embraces the uplifting sounds of Dvoˆrák’s Symphony No.9 From the New World. This work - sixth in the ABC Classic 100, features one of the best known Largo melodies of all time. SYO will also perform Glinka’s Russian and Ludmilla: Overture and Grieg’s Piano Concerto, performed by charismatic guest artist Simon Tedeschi. Tedeschi has had a sterling career as a professional pianist and is today the archetype of a contemporary Australian performer. Tedeschi has made a significant contribution to contemporary music culture, and is popular with local and international audiences.

The third SYO concert in the 2014 series, under the baton of Brett Weymark, is a collaboration with the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs performed in the Sydney Opera House over two nights in October.

representative of Western and Eastern unity. He says “I will write a work that evokes the wide-open landscapes we cherish here in Australia. As with a number of my previous works, I will inflect the music with a slight Asian quality to highlight our important links to the region. The result will be a celebration of our Australian voice and a sign of friendship to our neighbours.” The concert also features Debussy’s most captivating orchestral work, Prelude a l’apres-midi d’un faune, and an inspiring tone poem by Smetana. Tchaikovsky’s dramatic Symphony No.4 completes this concert; a passionate end to the 2014 series.

An an integral figure in Australian culture, Hindson is well known for taking inspiration from popular music genres and reinventing it within a classical music framework.

Young Virtuosi Four of the 2014 Young Virtuosi Award semi finalists - Bowen Li, piano; Ennes Mehmedbasic, oboe; Annabelle Traves, violin and Rhian Saunders, soprano – tell us a little about themselves and their hopes and aspirations. Each of them will be broadcast this month on Fine Music. ENNES MEHMEDBASIC is currently studying oboe with Diana Doherty. He was born into a musical family and began oboe at age eleven after wanting to “pick up an orchestral instrument”. Back then, his feelings towards the oboe and its sound were unclear, but now, after years of experience, Ennes realises that what “most obviously attracts [him] to it is the tone.” In 2013, Ennes was coprincipal oboe of Australian Youth Orchestra, participating in their international tour with Christoph Eschenbach and Joshua Bell. He is currently principal oboe of Sydney Youth Orchestra. Also in 2013, he performed at the Musica Viva Festival through the AYO Chamber Players program. Ennes has won the junior and intermediate divisions of the Australasian Double Reed Competition, and was the overall winner of the 2012 Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra’s NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition. In the same year, he recorded an oboe sonata by George Palmer with associate artist Evgeny Ukhanov and admits that playing for an audience “has certainly compelled me to prepare much more thoroughly than for regular performances”. Ennes has participated in master classes with oboists Francois Leleux, Nick Deutsch and Alexei Ogrintchouk. When he is not playing the oboe, Ennis also fits in sport, reading and playing chess online.

BOWEN LI began piano studies at the age of five. Bowen, the only musician in his family, says that even before his birth his father used to play Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. “It must have pushed the development of the musical parts of my brain.” And indeed it has - Bowen was awarded his piano LMusA in 2008, and has since won prizes at various eisteddfods such as the 2009 Theme and Variations Scholarship 10

we also went on an amazing overseas tour and played at wonderful venues, including Carnegie Hall.” Annabelle was the recipient of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra Prize for Most Outstanding Baroque Performance in 2013. But she also values her achievements at school where she was Prefect, Music and Strings Captain. Although it is sometimes difficult to find enough time to practise, Annabelle wants to improve and perform as much as she can to fulfill her aspiration to become a global solo violinist.

at the Ryde Eisteddfod. He was also a senior performer in the Kawai Sydney International Piano Master Class Festival and the Cochem Klaviersommer Festival in Germany in 2012 and 2013. Bowen hopes to study piano performance in North America and Europe, and is working tirelessly towards his goal - “I have always dreamed of being a concert pianist ever since I set eyes on a piano. I hope one day to travel the world performing and passing my experience on to the younger generation.” As for Bowen’s own favourite pianist, Arthur Rubinstein is the name that comes to mind - “his style of playing is so incredibly direct and honest… it is almost like talking to an old friend.” ANNABELLE TRAVES is 16 years old and a violin student of the Sydney Conservatorium’s Professor Alice Waten. Annabelle calls Professor Waten “an incredible teacher” who knows how to fix any of her problems. “She is very inspiring and keeps everything in perspective.” Annabelle has been a member of the Australian Youth Orchestra and was Associate Concertmaster of the AYO Young Symphonists at 12. She was invited to tour as soloist playing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the Queensland Youth Orchestra when she was 13 and has performed as soloist with the Tagiev Chamber Orchestra here and overseas. Even more relevant, Annabelle started learning violin when she was five with Emin Tagiev himself and says that - “He got us all in a chamber orchestra…

RHIAN SAUNDERS’ passion is classical and operatic music and her goal is to be a professional international opera singer. This year Rhian is a Pacific Opera Young Artist and will be playing the role of “Barbarina” in their production of The Marriage of Figaro. Rhian has been awarded the Farleigh Vocal Scholarship and the BBM Youth Support Scholarship 2013-14. The scholarship will allow her to travel to the UK for cultural and educational experience - “It will be my first time overseas. It is going to be one of the biggest ventures of my life and musical career.” She is also expecting to finish her Bachelor of Music at The Australian Institute of Music at the end of the year. In 2012, Rhian received the Coralie Butler Scholarship and Penrith Eisteddfod Aria and Lieder awards. But perhaps the achievement she values most is winning the Joan Sutherland Memorial Scholarship Award - “It means a lot to me to have my name connected to Joan, as she is one of the biggest inspirations in my life.” In pursuit of a career in opera, Rhian is taking an innovative approach by seeking to create “a bridge between the old school diva and the modern soprano.”

long, I had access to a quarter-size cello. But, although as a kid there was always classical music on in the house, I have to say I first became really interested in the cello actually quite a long time after I first started playing it. It wasn’t until 15 or 16 that I became really passionate. My cello It was built in 2001 by the American luthier, William Whedbee.

ACA launch, Sydney - Edward King

On Sunday 30 March, Fine Music 102.5 broadcasts the inaugural Australian Cello Awards live from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music’s Verbrugghen Hall. The competition has a $60,000 prize purse and the final follows months of auditions and performances in Sydney and London. Here we meet the three finalists travelling from Europe to contest this event. EDWARD KING – NEW ZEALAND The basics…. 23 years old, born and raised in New Zealand, Edward began his Bachelor of Music at the University of Waikato at just 16. He is now working for his Masters under Julius Berger at the Leopold Mozart Centre in Augsburg, Germany. Principal cellist with the New Zealand Youth Orchestra for three years, he has also performed as a soloist with the New Zealand and Christchurch symphony orchestras - among others. Edward won major music competitions around New Zealand and in Europe was placed third in the IX Lutoslawski International Cello Competition and third ex aequo at the International Cello Competition in Markneukirchen. How it all began… I started to play the cello when I was three for the simple reason - “because it’s big”! I think I was a little jealous of my older sister, who’d just started to learn the violin. So my parents found a cello teacher (Sally-Anne Brown) and asked if she could “pretend” to teach me until I was old enough to learn properly. For me, cello was more of a hobby until I was around 15-16 years old - I was much more interested in playing cricket and generally other “cooler” things. But then I was offered an Edmund Hillary scholarship to study under Jim Tennant at Waikato University, and my time there really focused me and gave me the confidence that I could forge a real life of music-making. My cello… It’s around 100 years old, and most probably from the Mirecourt school in France. (Though

a luthier recently told me it may actually be German). It’s not from a particularly famous maker, but nevertheless I have a strong personal connection with it and I like to think we know each other quite well! Ambitions & authenticity… There is a famous quote from Béla Bartók: “competitions are for horses, not artists”, which sums up the paradoxical world that musicians live in. On the one hand, we are constantly under pressure to play faster and louder; to win competitions and auditions. But in reality the only thing that matters is our ability to communicate with audiences; to say something honest and personal that moves and excites people. Competitions and other forms of “measured” success are necessary stepping-stones toward the opportunity of playing for, and communicating with, bigger audiences. So, in conclusion: perhaps my ambitions are slightly unorthodox, but to find my own individual voice and sincerely convey that to audiences is no mean feat! In any case, I am trying not to be just a race horse! RUBEN PALMA - AUSTRALIA The basics…. Ruben studied at the Victorian College of the Arts under Howard Penny and is now completing a Master of Music Violoncello Solo. He is the youngest student of internationally renowned soloist Nicolas Altstaedt at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln. The 24-year-old has had lessons and master classes with Steven Isserlis, David Geringas, Johannes Moser, Uzi Wiesel, Gary Hoffman, and Julian Smiles. As a soloist, Ruben has made concerto appearances with the University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Melbourne Sinfonia. How it all began… As a six-year-old, I was the one that was adamant I wanted to play the cello. Before

YELIAN HE - AUSTRALIA Yelian migrated to Australia at the age of seven from Shanghai to pursue his curiosity for western music culture. Under the tutelage of his father, Yelian took up the piano at three and the cello at five. Yelian attained his Bachelor of Music at the University of Melbourne and his masters at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester studying with famed Tchaikovsky Competition First Prize-winner Karine Georgian. He has studied and performed for many masters and won numerous awards, including the coveted the Royal Over-Seas League Competition String Prize. He enjoys an international career spanning Europe, Australasia and Africa performing at worldclass venues. Where it all began… Although initially my grandparents raised me in Shanghai, I’ve always felt my actual “growing up” happened in Melbourne! My immediate family reside in Melbourne and owns a lovely music shop/school in Malvern East . Other interests are… ..numerous, but the most often pursued currently are - Wing Chun (Kung Fu), computer games, photography, sound engineering, creation/dissection of ideas and bantering. My ambition is… to lead a team of highly talented people in bringing to life a series of projects that create innumerable opportunities for talented musicians/artists, utilising said projects to impress upon the public the importance of both classical music and the arts in their lifestyle. My cello… It was made in 1877 by a Hungarian luthier named Adolphus Monnig. It was sold to me by a friend who won the Symphony Australia’s Young Performers Award on it!

Leading up to this colossus among chamber works are two works of high appeal and calmer temperament. Gabriel Fauré’s Dolly suite, originally written for piano duet and arranged here by Ian Munro for flute, clarinet and piano, was composed to entertain the young daughter (‘Dolly’, pet name of Hélène) of Emma Bardac. The program opens in celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, J.S. Bach’s most famous and influential composing son, with a performance of his Quartet for keyboard, C.P.E. Bach’s impulsive and often passionate style had a marked influence on the music of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.

Winter Daydreams and Alexander Nevsky: Russian music that will capture your imagination. Tchaikovsky always had a soft spot for his first symphony: “the sin of my sweet youth” he called it. His 25-year-old imagination had inspired him to reveries of winter journeys and visions of misty landscapes. What will the Winter Daydreams  symphony conjure up for you? Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky cantata began life as a soundtrack in 1938, a pioneering film in the use sound. And director Sergei Eisenstein was so captivated by the possibilities that he literally constructed the film around Prokofiev’s score. Alexander Nevsky remains a cult movie classic, but even without its striking black and white footage, Prokofiev’s compelling and evocative music has the power to fill your mind with images. Conductor - Pinchas Steinberg, mezzosoprano - Natascha Petrinsky and the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs. Beethoven’s Fifth - with perhaps the bestknown opening notes in the classical repertoire is so famous it’s hard to imagine that in every concert someone might be hearing it live for the first time. Perhaps that will be you? Or maybe you know this symphony very well. It is an intense and exhilarating experience whenever you hear it. The genius of Henryk Wieniawski was his brilliance as a violinist and it shows in his concertos. This is music in the Romantic style - sparkling, melodic, and full of virtuosity. On Wednesday and Thursday, Carl Vine shows off the singing quality of the SSO strings in music that transforms the string orchestra into a single ‘super instrument’ - alchemy. Program includes Beethoven, Symphony No. 5, Wieniawski, Violin Concerto No. 2 and Vine, Smith’s Alchemy for strings. Conductor - Pinchas Steinberg, and Karen Gomyo, violin (pictured). Friends kicks off the 2014 season. Schubert’s first great piano trio closes this concert which also features the brilliant and popular New York-based cellist Clancy Newman presenting his own new composition, with exciting newcomer, Australian clarinettist, Som Howie. Natalie Chee completes this stunning group as she returns home to Sydney from Stuttgart where she is leader of the Radio Symphony. This is her first visit with Selby & Friends and she will be featured in Mozart’s early violin sonata which was composed following the death of his mother. The program includes Brahms’ short but powerful piano trio in C minor. A program of chamber music at its best.

The string quartet is a vital, intimate genre that is constantly reinvented. Tracing the thread of this evolution Continuum begins with early Boccherini from the mid-18th century, the same era that the quartet’s wonderful set of Guadagninis were made.  ASQ will perform using raw gut strings, rather than modern synthetic and steel, and with an understanding of the early classical performance style. This is followed by Brahms’ finely crafted first string quartet, as he would have heard it in the late 19th century, still using gut. The quartet then takes up modern electric instruments for the evocative Australian work, Windmill by Stephen Whittington, and George Crumb’s ground-breaking work for electric quartet, Black Angels. Crumb quotes from Tartini’s Devils Trill, the Dies Irae from Mozart’s Requiem and Schubert’s Death and The Maiden, creating a darkly moving response to the Vietnam War.

SYMPHONY OF AUSTRALIA The First Musical History of our Nation, (Second edition - 2013) Music and Lyrics by Gavin Lockley Book compiled by Michael Crouch ISBN 978 0 980 40802 7 (Hardback with CD)


Following a performance of Lockley’s setting of the iconic Dorothea McKellar poem, My Country, he was inspired to create a six movement Symphonic Poem (complete with VALENTINA LISITSA LISITSA PLAYS LISZT Valentina Lisitsa, piano Decca 478 5352


Valentina Lisitsa is a Ukrainian-born and trained classical pianist who lives in North Carolina. Blonde and beautiful, she made her name on YouTube, a place where, more than ever, young budding virtuosi can make a worldwide reputation without having to give a single public concert. Decca, never slow in recognising a good thing when they see it, has parlayed her YouTube reputation into a CD in

vocal and instrumental solos as well as choral episodes) which endeavours to capture a picture of Australia, its history, land, people, hardships, culture and spirit. Most people would be daunted by such a prospect, but Lockley did his research and mustered all of his creative energies to bring off what is a masterly piece of music, with immediate appeal. The six movements are sequential: Dreamtime (the vision, the belief and the stories of Australia’s first people); The Ships (the arrival of European settlers on the First Fleet); The Red Centre (The Burke and Wills expedition, a story of pioneering courage); Pie Jesu (a lament for those Australians who have bravely given their lives for their country); Immigration Scherzo (a celebration of Australia’s multicultural identity); and finally, My Country Australia (a tribute to “a sunburnt country”). The music perfectly juxtaposes consonance and dissonance, beauty and ruggedness, thick textures with simple moments. Didgeridoo and other non-western instruments are used to give a more authentic voice to some of the movements.

This premiere recording of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and a 100 voice choir is conducted by Brett Weymark. It accompanies a glossy pictorial book with corresponding essays written by prominent Australians (NSW Governor, Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir, Sir Roger Carrick, Professor Geoffrey Blainey, Former Deputy PM, Hon Tim Fischer, social demographer Hugh Mackay, former Governor-General, Michael Jeffery), making it a worthy addition to any library, or gift for overseas friends or new Australians. The complete package of book and CD is an aural, visual and literary feast. Along with a foreword by former PM John Howard, stunning photography and other illustrations work well with the composer’s notes giving a complete picture of the nation, as well as of the task, itself. The composer said of this work: “Symphony of Australia was something of a personal Everest for me”. His objective has been realised in enabling all who read the text and listen to its music to celebrate nationhood. - Barry Walmsley

which she plays a series of Franz Liszt’s shorter pieces. At a guess I’d have to say that Miss Lisitsa is left-handed. Why? Well, unless my hearing deceives me, her left hand is very much heavier than her right, which gives some of these pieces a somewhat uneven feel to them. But she’s certainly a brave girl. She attempts the ferociously difficult and rarely recorded “El contrabandista,” full of vigour and Spanish fury. Maybe a little more chiaroscuro (to use a painting phrase) could have been applied, but well done her for trying. Other pieces include such popular numbers as Der Erlkönig, Ellen’s Gesang (Ave Maria) and the Hungarian Rhapsody No 12. - Michael Morton-Evans A RAIN FROM THE SHADOWS Zephyr Quartet Belinda Gehlert (violin), Emily Tulloch (violin), Jason Thomas (viola), Hilary Kleinig (cello)


A Rain From the Shadows sparkles from beginning to end. From the presentation of the CD cover itself to the last second on the CD, everything fascinates. I have put the CD on repeat and could listen to it forever. Now a big fan of Zephyr Quartet, I want to hear everything that they have produced because this group is outstanding!

What is it about this CD that so fascinates? Is it the poems that this group uses as their muse to inspire their compositions - published in their sleeve notes? Is it their hearts-on-the-sleeve performance? Is it their commanding virtuosity from first instrument to last, or the ensemble teamwork and sympathy that every maestro has for his or her teammates? The answer is yes to all of the above! The tonal variety that this quartet produces is amazing, and the music is nothing short of outstanding. So yes, buy this CD, and then get every other CD that Zephyr Quartet has produced and will produce, because this CD and these musicians are a gem! - Richard Wong March 2014

Based in New York City, Dessner, is a composer and performer, who is rising meteorically in the music world. Some view Dessner as a pop artist, as he is a guitarist, however his intellect and training (he has a Master of Music degree from Yale) have enabled him to transcend tags to immerse himself in contemporary “classical” music.

Hebrew and Arabic texts. It’s performed by Lior Attar (better known as just Lior), with Nigel Westlake conducting the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. It was commissioned by the SSO for the SSO and other Australian orchestras with the support of Symphony Services International. The work is a 45 minute song cycle for voice and orchestra in seven movements. Written by Lior and Australian composer Nigel Westlake, it was premiered last year at the Sydney Opera House. Westlake, needing no introduction to large scale symphonic works, and Lior, born in Israel  and moving with his family to Sydney  when he was 10,  find common ground to express the wisdom of compassion through a combination of music and ancient writings

“Compassion” draws on the rich world of Islam and Judaism to present a collection of profound and poetic messages surrounding the idea of compassion between human beings. The texts are largely a collections of poems, proverbs and songs that give insight into such wisdom. Lior’s voice is frequently emotionally charged, always shows security and a musical tonal balance with the orchestra and reveals a heightened sense of communication throughout the recording. The orchestral sound frequently reminding us of Westlake’s percussion concerto, “When the Clock Strikes Me” is often vigorous and appropriately aggressive which provides much excitement and attraction. Overall, this work is impressive, stunning and captivating. And turn up your speakers to listen! - Emyr Evans

The four works on this disc draw on personal ideas to create new musical responses. Aheym, meaning “homeward” in Yiddish, is a glance at his Jewish origins and a commemoration of a particular New York park. Little Blue Something is inspired by Czech folk music, and Tenebre, with pre-recorded vocals by Sufjan Stevens, is based on the Holy Week service of extinguishing candles. In Dessner’s hands, it takes on the more general (and inverse) view of moving from darkness to light. The beautiful choral tones of the Brooklyn Youth Choir feature in Tour Eiffel, along with electric guitar, piano, percussion and string quartet. The Kronos Quartet’s performance is remarkably dynamic and intelligent. It is biting, edgy stuff,

aligning with the thrust of this Quartet, which continues to explore new composers who have new things to say. - Barry Walmsley

Violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 53; Romance for Violin and Orchestra in F minor, Op. 11; Mazurka for Violin and Orchestra in B minor, Op. 49; Humoresque for violin and piano. The CD contains all the works listed above recorded in a studio in June 2013; the DVD contains the Concerto and the Romance recorded at a concert in the Philharmonie in Berlin in February 2013. Of the two, I preferred the studio recording. But in fact Anne-Sophie Mutter gives technically and musically impeccable performances of all the works with orchestra presented here and both she and the conductor thoroughly deserve the magnificent ovation at the end of the concert. Even Dvorak’s most enthusiastic admirers confess that the Concerto is not

one of his greatest works. It is perhaps not surprising that the famous violinist Joseph Joachim, to whom the concerto is dedicated and who advised Dvorak over a long period on its composition, never performed it. In some respects the Romance in F minor, with its magical opening pages, is a finer work. Nevertheless, as performed here, the concerto is well worth hearing, particularly the energetic final movement. The Mazurka is a lesser composition, although it makes pleasant enough listening. In the over-familiar Humoresque, both the violinist and her accompanist sound a little tentative and the recording here is not as successful as it is in the works with orchestra. - Richard Gate


“Give me the Bodgies and Widgies anytime”! My words are lost in the swirling wind sweeping outside my Hunter Valley hideaway after another day of devastating heat. Big J nods his head sagely and then, in appreciation, slurps with piggy delight as I fill his bowl with the fruit of the red grape. Once again I am trying to ascertain the meaning of life in this gadgetobsessed pop culture, the 21st century’s sound bite age with its short attention span. The Voice calls me the ultimate grump, forgetting that although a Neanderthal with class I also have a sharply honed intellect. The despicable Clifford has just left along with Brett, his latest “friend”. With a name like that one would imagine a hunk, square-jawed and broad shouldered; settle down girls, life is full of disappointments. Brett is a lard bucket whose breath could stun a pit bull at 20 paces -and even worse, he has the dreaded Narcissistic Order Syndrome. Not only that, his main aim in life is to be a micro celebrity but what else would you expect from a Millennial? [Millennials: Born from early 1980s to 2000. The “Generation Me” with its overtones of narcissism and entitlement.] I was waiting for a scream of “manners” by The Voice as Brett sat beside Clifford ignoring the chilled white wine and everyone else. When not texting someone, he discreetly placed the mobile phone in his trouser pocket. With a glazed look on his face, he would await the returning text message - early symptoms of the Phantom Pocket Vibrato Syndrome. And today everyone is a critic thanks to Twitter. Opinions, no matter how daft are aired at random as if they are important or earth-shattering. As I told Brett with some amusement: “They are like a certain part of our anatomy. We all have one but who cares?’’ My statement was greeted with stony silence. Reality TV has been described as documentaries of narcissists. Where would we be without the joys of tabloid TV! Pretty female co-presenters are the rage; can’t be too blokey! And what about those wonderful “blockbusters’’ dancing programs and “talent” quests; forget any tantalising of the intellectual senses. I splutter in disgust coughing red wine over my sweet chilli plants. (They have never looked better; a modest observation!) Filling my glass once again I lose myself in the reflective beauty of Ben Webster’s tenor saxophone, tender and introspective as he caresses Time On My Hands from Soulville, his

classic 1957 album on Norman Granz’s Verve label with Oscar Peterson. It was written in 1930 by Vincent Youmans, one of the great songsmiths, and recorded the following year by a 15-year-old Lee Wiley but I digress . . . With Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young, Webster was one of the founding emperors of the jazz tenor saxophone. Hawkins more or less invented it; Young reinvented it tonally and melodically. And Webster? Up until he joined the Duke in late 1939, listeners generally recognised the influence of Hawkins. But with Ellington he fell under the sway of the Duke’s greatest soloist Johnny Hodges developing his own musical personality - an enormous lyrical sound and an easy direct swing. The great alto saxophonist taught Webster about tone and emotion which satisfied his listeners in a way that Hawkins and Young, for all their genius, never did. His solos with Ellington are some of the finest in jazz history. As for ballads, he seemed to breathe a ballad rather than play them. Phrases would begin with a whispering breath before growing majestically into a full tone then melting back. A ballad by Webster was intimate but never sentimental. Few if any, probably only Stan Getz, could match his ballad artistry during the 1950s. However, by 1964, caught by The Beatles on one side and the jazz avant garde of John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman on the other, Webster found his wonderful sound unfashionable. (Whatever happened to good taste I mutter, spraying more red wine over my sweet basil as I splutter in disgust). That year he received an invitation to play a month-long engagement

at Ronnie Scott’s club in London. On arrival he found that he was idolised not only in the United Kingdom but also Sweden, Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands. He joined the dozens of black American jazz musicians who migrated to Europe in the 1950s and 1960s. But Webster had a Jekyll and Hyde personality; sober he was as sweet as cream but when drunk more than lived up to the name he was known among American musicians -“The Brute”. The problem in Europe was that many of their top musicians tended to be amateurish. Unable to support him like American musicians they ended up in his wake. This aggravated his drinking to such an extent he began turning up at clubs drunk or missing engagements altogether. His playing deteriorated. At times it was incoherent. It was a losing battle with the bottle which ended with his death in 1973. There are many stories about Webster such as after a 1971 concert in Oslo when the musicians were formally introduced to the Crown Prince of Norway. They had all been introduced except one - Ben Webster, whose legs were in poor shape. To the sound of curses and groans Webster ascended the staircase and staggered through the door. The Crown Prince’s aide, almost speechless as decorum was trashed, proceeded with his introduction nervously waving Webster in the direction of the Crown Prince who nodded regally. Webster lunged forward, slapped the Crown Prince on the back yelling: “Ben Webster, King of the Tenor - pleased to meet you Prince!” A man after my own heart; I fill Big J’s bowl as I raise another glass in salute …. - Patrick D Maguire March 2014

JAZZ CD REVIEWS Discourse with Kevin Jones


✶✶✶✶ In Australia, pianist Judy Carmichael is known as one of the finest exponents of the swing and stride styles on the jazz scene today. Overseas she is also renowned for her weekly radio show Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired - broadcast over more than 170 radio stations in the United States and Canada. Her guest on this always lively and intelligent conversational program this year include pianists Bill Charlap and Rossano Sportiello and bassist Jay Leonhart. On her latest album she has put her rhythmically infectious

pianistics aside to show what a fine vocalist she all get a chance to shine, especially the admirable is; we first got a glimpse of this ability on her Allen with his timeless tenor sound. With same 2008 release Come And Get It. Judy admits she group and same format - more please! has always loved singing but the reason for the late flowering of this talent is really very simple: she had two operations for nodes on her vocal chords as a teenager. Her desire, as she says, to “unleash her inner Peggy Lee” bears a rich harvest on this impressive set. Carmichael reinterprets Lee’s breathy style on 11 standards, including two written by Lee - I Don’t Know Enough About You and the title track with her own additional lyrics. Daniel Craig would be impressed. She also shows a penchant for sultry ballads such as Say It Isn’t So and The Lamp Is Low. Her accompanying musicians Harry Allen, pianist Mike Renzi and Leonhart -

It was with some sadness that I listened to these recordings from 1998 until 2001 by the 10-piece group Swing Fever, one of the icons of the San Francisco jazz scene, with guest appearances by the “Grand Masters of Jazz” - trumpet and flugelhorn player Clark Terry, vibraphonist Terry Gibbs and clarinettist Buddy DeFranco. Their contributions to the music, both individually and collectively, are immense. Gibbs, now 88, and DeFranco, 90, have both defied the passing years and are still playing with energy and GRAND MASTERS OF JAZZ fluency. However, at the time of writing of this Swing Fever with Clark Terry, Buddy review, Terry was in ill health and his playing DeFranco and Terry Gibbs days, glorious as they were, appear to be over.

A PORTRAIT OF MR T AND MR G Jack Teagarden and Don Goldie Retrospective RTR 4216


Jack Teagarden, especially after World War Two, was too often identified as a Dixieland musician. However, using Coleman Hawkins as an example, the great trombonist was a giant whose playing defied being categorised in any one jazz era or genre. These live recordings from 1959-61 at the New York club The Roundtable, originally released on the Roulette label, combine variety, showmanship and fine musicianship not only from Mr T himself in top form but also from the other members of his sextet who included an exceptional stride pianist in Don Ewell. He not only plays brilliantly throughout but had a hand in the arrangements. There is also some impressive

flugelhorn on Swingin’ The Blues and the humour of his vocalising on I Want A Lïttle Girl and banter with a young Jackie Ryan early in her career on Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone reminds us once again of his stature in the jazz world. There’s so much to enjoy here: Gibbs steaming through Air Mail Special, DeFranco at his inventive best on Speak Low and Ryan’s emerging talent on East Of The Sun. And then there’s Swing Fever led by trombonist Bryan Gould, a working band for more than 35 years. It plays the music of its choice with passion and showcases the three stars to perfection. Spiced with anecdotes from the “Masters” this set is a delight, both aurally and visually; it also includes a DVD and booklet.

trumpet from Don Goldie, whose father Harry Goldfield played the same instrument with Paul Whiteman when Teagarden was a member of that organisation. Listen to Goldie’s slashing solo on High Society as he parodies the tune’s traditional clarinet solo. He once caustically claimed that the group’s clarinettist Henry Cuesta “couldn’t play it properly anyhow”. For all that, Cuesta is effective both as a soloist and in the ensembles. But the star of this valuable reissue, as would be expected, is Teagarden - his matchless trombone sounds effortless on the traditional warhorses (such as Basin Street Blues and Riverboat Shuffle). His lyricism is matched by his vocals, especially on Old Folks, one of vocalist and instrumentalist are given full rein. the final four tracks from a 1962 session with An essential purchase. strings arranged by Bob Brookmeyer.

March Program Highlights THE AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT Tuesday 4 March 2.30pm This period in history refers to a cultural movement of intellectuals, philosophers, scientists, authors and composers during the period of about 1650 to 1800. Of the many composers of that period, our program on this day features Beethoven’s cello sonata no 2, a brief overture from Salieri, and works by two lesser composers – an orchestral work by French composer, Antoine Dauvergne and the Piano Concerto in E-flat by Austrian composer, Anton Eberl. COMPOSER FOCUS: AARON COPLAND Thursday 6 March 9am Aaron Copland, who later in life was referred to as the “Dean of American Music”, was born in Brooklyn in 1900 and lived to the ripe old age of 90. Composer, teacher, lecturer and conductor, he became the most famous American musical icon of the 20th century. He was first introduced to music by piano lessons given by his sister. Formal studies followed and by the age of 15 he realised that music composition was to be his vocation. After high school, his parents allowed him to continue his music education in Paris under the guidance of Isidor Philipp and Paul Vidal. Nadia Boulanger recognised Copland’s talents and accepted him as one of her students in the early 1920s. Her teachings greatly influenced his musical development and compositional activities. Copland’s first work was published in 1920. When he returned to the United States in 1925 he was well on his way to becoming a full time composer. In the 1930s he travelled widely in Europe, Africa and Mexico, collecting ideas for compositions from home and abroad. The creative period of Copland’s life continued for a further 60 years. Some of his regularly performed popular works include: El Salon Mexico; Billy the Kid; Quiet City; Rodeo; Appalachian Spring; Fanfare for the Common Man; symphonies, and clarinet and piano concertos. Some of these are featured in this program. ANNIVERSARY PROGRAM: CARL PHILIPP EMANUEL BACH Friday 7 March 2.30pm This program celebrates the 300th birthday of C P E Bach, the most famous of the four professional composer sons of J S Bach. Nurtured and musically guided by his father, young Carl displayed a great deal of talent. On his father’s insistence, after graduating from the St Thomas School in Leipzig, he commenced

law studies in the same city and later graduated from Frankfurt University. At age 24, however, he realised that his vocation was composing music. In the same period his development as a keyboard player flourished to the extent that in his late twenties he was considered one of the foremost clavier players in Europe. Royal patronage was necessary to succeed in life in the 18th century and C P E Bach was privileged to be appointed to the Court of Frederick the Great. During his composing period of over five decades, he composed over 900 works. The list is impressive including over 200 keyboard sonatas, 150 chamber works, 100 instrumental concertos, symphonies, passions, cantatas, motets and so on. Our program will include five of his compositions, sure to be enjoyed. THE ROMANTIC CENTURY Friday 14 March 8pm After the Classical period of music in the 18th century, the Romantic period occupied the whole of the 19th century. A large number of well-known and lesser known composers further enriched the music repertoire of their predecessors, much to the enjoyment of many generations since that time. This program includes five works from eminent composers of the period. SPOTLIGHT ON EGYPTIAN CHARMS Saturday 15 March 9.30am Over the centuries many composers have been inspired to create works relating to a particular subject, for example a type of dance such as a tarantella or a waltz or a polka. Other subjects could be a city or a country. It is always intriguing to hear various composers’ approach to such a project through connections both direct and indirect. So in this program we have the musical responses of no less than seven composers to Egypt. OPERA COMPOSERS SANS OPERA Monday 17 March 2pm In the minds of classical music lovers, the names of Verdi, Puccini, Rossini and others immediately equate with the wonderful operas they have written. Perhaps not as well known is that most of these famous opera composers have created a number of great works quite apart from their operatic activities. This program shows the versatility, away from the operatic field, of six very famous composers, starting with a bassoon concerto by Rossini and concluding with a symphony by Gounod. A revelation.

Tonio, who has been eavesdropping, tells Canio but, despite his rage, Nedda refuses to reveal the name of her lover. During the play, which closely mirrors the real-life situation, Canio loses control and asks Nedda again for her lover’s name.

Silvio, who has pushed his way to the front, declares ‘The play is over!’

Ezio Pinza

of Tsar Ivan and the murder of his son. He is urged by a crowd to take the throne. In Moscow Prince Shuysky welcomes him and begs the crowd to glorify Tsar Boris. In a Kremlin monastery an old monk Pimen is writing a history of Russia; his assistant Grigory resolves to impersonate the dead Tsarevich. He meets some vagrants and flees for the border. Meanwhile Boris faces his guilt. Prince Shuysky brings news of the rise of the pretender. In Poland Grigory courts Princess Marina and persuades her to march to Moscow. Riven by guilt Boris dies and a beggar mourns the state of his country as the pretender approaches. 23:00 ORGAN RECITAL BY ROBERT SMITH Recorded by FINE MUSIC Pachelbel, J.
