Sydney Youth Orchestra

Before joining SYO, Alfonzetti was External Relations Manager at the Sydney Conservatorium and prior to that she held a most illustrious position as Head of Classical 2

Music at the Sydney Opera House. These experiences gave her a unique insight into music making, and interests, in Sydney, to the Conservatorium as a venue and to the need for youth music education. All these she brought to the SYO offices along with one more crucial thing; gumption. The SYO Summer School, a weeklong ensembletraining program for primary school children, was launched within months of her becoming CEO. As Alfonzetti explains, ‘I hadn’t been at SYO for very long so it was one of those crazy things where we just said ‘let’s just do it!’ In a lot of places you talk and talk about something for a really long time, but I knew there was a gap and even though SYO is a small organisation we’re really busy and we have really good processes and connections so we were able to pull it off very quickly.’

The Sydney Youth Orchestras (SYO) is like Hogwarts for young classical musicians. An acceptance letter arrives in the mail (following an audition, of course) and you wait out the summer to enter a world where you are among peers, no longer the only cellist in your school, or town even, but part of a section, a symphony. Your skill, the “magic” that made you stand out, is now respected and honed, shaped to a craft that brings joy and fun through its work. A woman who knows this first hand is Yarmila Alfonzetti, SYO’s new CEO. Growing up in Katoomba, she imagines she was the only kid in her primary school that liked classical music. When she transferred to Sydney, she found herself in a classroom where everyone was talking about Mozart. All these years later (and amidst a very distinguished career) she still describes it as ‘just the best’. Alfonzetti spoke with Fine Music to discuss SYO’s new ventures in 2017. But new as they may be, they are still led by SYO’s guiding principle of being a home for classical music and its musicians.

a cohort of kindred spirits…

That ‘gap’ was a lack of an orchestral summer course for students, surprising for a city blessed both by music and a long summer. Down in Victoria, Melbourne Youth Orchestras (previously Melbourne Youth Music) has run a Summer School for over

40 years. MYO’s CEO, Dorian Jones, was thus in a good place to give Alfonzetti some starter’s advice. Alfonzetti recalls their long conversation and the decisions she made in what to keep from MYO’s model and what to change. One thing she was inspired by was the fact that students come from far further than metropolitan Melbourne to attend the school. Alfonzetti aims to incorporate this into her future plans for the Summer School, a tribute to the success of the SYO State program this year. At the beginning of 2016, SYO announced a three-year commitment to Central West NSW. With Dubbo chosen as the Regional Hub, SYO pledged to visit the region annually, performing concerts and offering workshops. Alfonzetti was inspired. She tells Fine Music how, ‘we took two orchestras this year and we did orchestral workshops and played along side by side with 80 local kids sitting in with our Philharmonic Orchestra. It was so fantastic because those are the kids who come from local schools and they’re the only kid playing cello at their school. That child doesn’t know what it’s like to be in a cohort of kindred spirits, and that’s when it’s so fantastic because then the child comes to us and says “Wow! I just played Tchaik 5

and it’s so great.”’ It is therefore Alfonzetti’s ambition to facilitate more regional students attending the Summer School. The SYO has, for so long, been integral to NSW music making – many alumni have gone on to become notable musicians – but the weekly rehearsals are inaccessible for regional students. Local students, too, are often unable to attend, be it due to school or religious commitments. As Alfonzetti explains, ‘the Summer School is our way to open up SYO to a lot more people. What I like to say is that we are elite but not elitist. So we look for the best, we expect the best, but there’s something in our program for everyone. Which is great because we ALL love classical music!’ Laughing as she says that, Alfonzetti knows that it’s more a hope than reality but in good businesslike fashion, she has a solid answer for why everyone should love classical music. ‘I think there’s something about classical music today for young people which I only just discovered (since I’ve been at SYO) and it sounds a bit facile but it’s the value of productivity. What happens when kids come to us is that they are busy and they are working hard to achieve something, and the satisfaction is addictive. It’s actually very different from rote learning for your exam at the end of the year because there’s a creative element and every switched on parent knows that a combination of a creative pursuit and a physical pursuit is an absolute gold mine and this is the sort of combination that classical music provides. I think what happens when young people do this orchestral training program, that we have, is they understand the satisfaction that comes from hard work. And often in our society we shy away from this. I say to the students all the time, this is a lifetime pursuit and it’s a pursuit of passion. You have to put in the time and effort and you have to try really hard but the rewards are there.’ Like all of SYO, the Summer School promises to be that perfect mix of hard work and fun. ‘It’s fascinating how kids rise to the challenge,’ Alfonzetti says. ‘They’re placed in an ensemble that’s matched to their ability. One day I can imagine it being not one week but two and we’ll have different programming streams in there.’ Knowing Alfonzetti, it happening is a certainty. If the Summer School sets the students a challenge, SYO has also set themselves one of their own. In 2017 the organisation will launch its 12th orchestra, the Western Sydney Youth Orchestra. Based in Parramatta, it hopes to draw high-school students from Greater Western Sydney (GWS) to form

faces. The world is marvellous, new and exciting, and most importantly one where they belong. SYO provides that marvel for classical musicians. Be they young children at the Summer School, high-school students in Parramatta or young adults touring Europe with the Flagship orchestra, SYO promises to nurture them as musicians. ‘For so many students,’ Alfonzetti concludes, ‘their favourite day of the week is when they come to SYO. At SYO you can express how much you love this ‘thing’ that to teenagers is not always so cool.’ It’s the chance for students to step out of their own world and into the world of Mozart and Mahler. What magic!

EVENT CEO Yarmila Alfonzetti. Image – AMP Capital the first, full youth orchestra in the region. Alfonzetti is under no illusions as to the challenges that lie ahead. ‘It’s going to be difficult. When you expand into a new area, it takes a lot of time, it takes a lot of work, and that’s what we found. We’ve spent the best part of a year going into GWS talking to people, meeting with music teachers, going in to schools and really laying the groundwork and what we’ve realised is that there’s a lot of good youth music making happening in Sydney. There are a lot of great teachers, there are a lot of great schools… but where there’s a gap is in orchestral training.’ Orchestral training is the cornerstone of SYO (would a wizard go to Hogwarts if not to learn spells) and in order to be successful requires the right leader. To conduct Western Sydney, SYO have therefore selected James Pensini. Having grown up in the area, Pensini may always have been considered for the job but this should not detract from the skill set he brings. As Alfonzetti explains, ‘he has a way of getting the best out of kids. It’s that funny line where they’re a little bit scared of him but they love him. James has that amazing ability, he puts kids on the spot, you have to play this in tune, and they’re so scared but for some reason they want to live up to his standards so they do it. I mean, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an absence from his (other) orchestra. I think he’s a great choice for Western Sydney as he’s passionate about teaching and he’s also got a very good capacity for pastoral care. In a new venture, you can’t go in guns blazing. We have to have some understanding, some empathy.’ Pensini is sure to provide that. Students at Hogwarts (as the movies have shown) arrive with wide eyes and expectant

The unseasonably warm weather was bordering on surreal and had people down to their shirtsleeves. My singing teacher is a Jewish New Yorker and his wife said that on Christmas Day, Jews in New York have a Chinese meal and go to the movies. So Ruth and I decided that we’d be honorary Jews for a day. Alas, the Chinese restaurant was booked out but we were able to eat there on Christmas Eve instead. We DID go to a movie - 45 Years with Charlotte Rampling. The cinema was packed and we were probably the

A memorable and favourite Christmas of mine and husband Stephen’s is the Christmas of 2004. My eldest son Jack was almost 2. We were staying at our dear friends, Scott and Barbara’s, house. This was before they had their own kids, and before our youngest, Brendan came along. Jack had seen the Buzz Lightyear games in the shops. On Christmas Day when he opened the present his face lit up, and he started shaking. And saying over and over

only gentiles in the audience. It was like a Woody Allen film - which was a good thing because I adore Woody Allen. Prior to that we went on a cruise on the Hudson. Sold a ticket by a spruiker, our hearts sank when we found the jetty and beheld a colossal, seething, angry queue. After much jostling and queue-jumping by folk who arrived well after us, we were herded on board like cattle. Soon we were assaulted by a pre-recorded commentary, replete with cheesy jokes in a Babel of languages. It kept inviting us to observe various landmarks. We got a fairly good look at the Statue of Liberty but when the disembodied voice suggested we might like to gaze in wonder at the Manhattan skyline, all we could see was impenetrable fog. So I took a photo of the fog and posted it on Facebook with the caption: “Look! Manhattan!”

again Buvv Lightyear.. Buvv Lightyear. He was surrounded by so much love - and spoilt. It was just very special. Such love. Then there are the Christmases when I was a child in Vanuatu. Going to the bush and dragging back to the house, a fallen coconut palm. We’d decorate it with hibiscus and shells... and a toilet roll and a cotton wool Christmas Angel on the floppy top. My 3 sisters and I would get a couple of presents each and it always involved something to do with swimming. I was one of those kids who managed to open all my presents before the day was over. I’m still a bit like that now. For me, Christmas is

about family, it’s about forgiveness and love, and especially about all my nieces and nephews. It’s a treasured time.

The Christmas I remember most vividly was that of 2010 in Seattle. I was rehearsing for a production of Il Barbiere and I remember walking out of the opera house after an orchestral rehearsal to a fresh dusting of the first snow of the season. It was magical!! I was the only person walking along the streets on my way home and every step I took made that characteristic crunch as each footstep sank into the snow. Seattle that

night was picture perfect. I will never forget being totally alone in a city of hundreds of thousands of people and not being able to hear anything but the falling of snow as it tumbled from branches far too slim to sustain its weight. There wasn’t even a breeze. The stillness and silence were heavenly. I walked home the long way just so I could take in as much of those precious moments. I’m sure the memory will be the last I have before destiny takes me from this earth. I hope at least to get sufficient warning to be able to recall it.

Alexander Briger AO, is one of Australia’s best known international conductors. He founded the Australian World Orchestra. He’ll be spending part of December in Paris and also part with his family in Sydney. When I was 12 years old, for an entire year my father kept disappearing every Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday. As a young boy this of course upset me as I really wanted to spend time him during the weekend. However, my mother and he always said he had to work. For some reason I was suspicious as I knew he was downstairs in his “room”, but there was nothing I could do about it. To make matters

Alexander Briger AO worse, as Christmas approached he started disappearing more often! Christmas Day arrived and I was led downstairs by the entire

family. to the “room”’ There in front of me lay the most enormous electrical trainset. It had mountains and houses and farms and a huge European train station with many tracks and different trains. My father had been building it all by hand for the entire year! He had painted every house and building, all the electrics, and the mountains. It was vast. It was without a doubt the greatest Christmas gift I have ever received and my father and I spent many hours together playing with this incredible train set. I will never forget it.

Simone Young AM, is an internationally renowned conductor. She’ll be performing with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in December and spend Christmas with family in Sydney. It was our fifth or sixth year in Hamburg and the city was turning on a magical Christmas – plenty of snow, all the family gathered around, and three days of doing nothing but eating, drinking, board games and just a little cricket on the telly at odd hours of the night….. In Germany, Christmas time, and Christmas Day in particular, are very popular days for going to the theatre. Performances on the 25th and 26th are packed. Fledermaus was due to be performed at 6pm on the 25th. The day before, “Heiliger Abend”, everything is closed, as this is the evening when German families celebrate . So on the 23rd, much chocolate was distributed, hands were shaken and many a “Merry Christmas” exchanged as the lucky ones, yours truly included, headed to our fireplaces and kitchens to prepare for the family celebrations. On leaving that day, I had tossed off a facetious “well if someone gets sick, you know where I am” and thought nothing more of it. Famous last words! At 2:30 pm on the 25th, the turkey was on the table and moi, the chef, was already at least 2 or more glasses into the big Henschke red saved just for the festivities. The phone rang. Me (very cheery) “Hello? Merry Christmas!” – Toni (my head of company office) “Simone, we have a problem……” All that lovely snow, that was so nice to look at through the windows with the fire on and a glass of red in one hand, had wreaked havoc with the travel plans of the day’s conductor – who was languishing in Munich, not knowing when his plane for Hamburg would be able to take off.

Simone Young AM. Image: Berthold Fabricius “So you need me to start the show?” “Sure!” says I, with Barossa-fuelled confidence. Husband Greg took the glass out of my hand and replaced it with strong coffee and I set out to locate my Fledermaus score. As I opened it I realised that it had been only about 11 years since the last time I had performed it – OOPS! Nothing like that sort of adrenalin to sober you up fast! I closeted myself in the bedroom with the score, studied it for about 2 hours then set out for the theatre. The announcement of the conductor’s delay, and of our emergency solution, was met with great delight by the crowd, and off we went.

I can only say that it was great fun! After about 30 mins, the scheduled conductor snuck into the pit, we did a quick baton-change in one of the dialogues and that was it! I hung around to take a curtain-call at the end of the act and it was with great relief that I took a cab home and rescued my plate of turkey and trimmings! And my lovely family had even left me a little of the Henschke red……… Frohe Weihnachten!

Divergence Jazz Orchestra’s new CD

Divergence Jazz Orchestra There’s bands, and then there’s big bands (or jazz orchestras as they are known now). They all started back in the 1930s when swing dancing was all the rage and have since evolved from being a vehicle for dancing and enjoyment to an orchestra capable of performing art music. The sound of the big band is mostly associated with America, where you can hear jazz orchestras almost every night of the week (including the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and Maria Schneider’s jazz orchestra). However, it would seem you don’t have to be in New York to hear great jazz orchestras, and Sydney is home to one of the greats, Divergence Jazz Orchestra. Divergence was formed in 2012 by trombonist Paul Weber and composer/conductor, Jenna Cave. Since that time they have released two recordings, and their most recent, Fake It Until You Make It was launched a few weeks ago to a sold out crowd at Foundry 616. The album is an eclectic mix of styles, from classic swing (Sammy Nestico style, to funky grooves, as well as tender, reflective moments that make you melt like butter). The orchestra was put together with the idea of a community in mind. Cave wanted it to be a vehicle where a group of talented and dedicated people could come together and make new music. The album features an eclectic mix of original compositions by Jenna Cave, Brendan Champion, Luke Davis, Paul Murchison and Miroslav Bukovsky. “It is a collection of some of our favourite material that we have performed over the last 3 years,

including two very old pieces of mine written 10 years ago,” Cave says. “When Paul and I established the band we wanted it to be a place where we could play music composed by myself and other members of the band, as well as from other composers in our networks; in doing so strengthening a sense of community and collaboration for composers as well as all the performers getting together.” The idea of this community also extends beyond the orchestra. In 2016 Divergence commissioned new works from Paul Cutlan and Jenna Cave, and a new arrangement of an existing piece by Brendan Champion. This was made possible with the assistance of the Australian Cultural Fund and their fundraising platform and the generous patrons who donated funds. Divergence were awarded a Sydney Conservatorium of Music New and Contemporary Classical & Jazz Music Performance grant in 2013, and to date have performed and promoted original music by 16 Australian composers including William Motzing, Rafael Karlen, Elliot Hughes, Judy Bailey, Cam McAllister, Jessica Wells, Nadia Burgess and others. On their CD launch night at Foundry 616 they also premiered a piece by Jessica Wells called “Bonnie and Clyde” and a new piece by Paul Cutlan. For jazz composers, the challenge of writing for a jazz orchestra might be one of the biggest that there is to face. Cave relishes in this challenge, and like her fellow composers and band members is excited to partake in the creation of new material for this medium.

“There is just so much great musical energy there with 18 instrumentalists and a conductor coming together to create something as one, it can be a breathtaking and humbling experience standing in front of Divergence as they play. As a composer I find that when writing for jazz orchestra there are just so many sounds you can get, it’s like a journey of discovery writing for them with so many colours to play with and endless combinations and possibilities,” she explains. “I think I pretty much approach composition from the heart, and let that dictate the music,” explains Cave. “For me jazz is so joyful and expressive, so I like to draw on the stylistic aspects of this music that move me the most when writing for Divergence - the feel, groove, rhythm, expression and great melodies,” she adds. So, what drives a group of talented young jazz musicians to record an album you might ask? “Recording albums of course does help with our “commercial” success with a few CD sales and opening up more performance opportunities. But that’s not why we do it. We record because of the artistic fulfillment, the need we feel to get this music captured and share it with people,” says Jenna Cave. What remains to be said about Divergence is that it enjoys an obvious advantage over most other contemporary jazz groups and like its very name it diverges from the crowd, it has its own rules and doesn’t follow trends. And so what we have is a group of young, fresh and exuberant composers and musicians who have joined forces to create their own exciting take on the world of jazz. There’s certainly no faking it here. - Samuel Cottell Divergence Jazz Orchestra’s new album Fake It Until You Make It out now and can be purchased at: https://divergencejazzorchestra. for more information visit: December 2016

Frances will play at the respected JZ Jazz Club in Shanghai in October 2017. Frances completed her degree in music performance at AIM in Sydney in 2010 and has been working full time as a professional musician since. A few years into her career she began to write her own material, some of which was heard by Judi Morrison, wife of James, who invited Frances to record some demo tracks at James Morrison Studios in Sydney. That led to an album titled If This Were a Dream featuring eight originals written by Frances as well as five classic covers. The album debuted at #5 on the ARIA Jazz Album charts in December 2014 and has been selling consistently since. December 2016

Streeton Trio

Streeton Trio. L-R Umberto Clerici, Emma Jardine & Benjamin Kopp Fine Music has always encouraged local music and musicians support. That was formalised in 2014 with the offer of Artist-inResidence status to the Omega Ensemble and Acacia Quartet. From 2016 this was offered annually, giving recipients access to studios for recording, sound engineers, rehearsal facilities, promotional support, and more. The two recipients of Artist-inResidence last year were flautist Bridget Bolliger and the Acacia Quartet. Fine Music is thrilled to announce the 2017 recipients for Artists-in-Residence are the Streeton Trio.

Biography Described by Musica Viva as “Australia’s most internationally successful piano trio,” the Streeton Trio was formed in 2008, in Geneva, Switzerland, from three young Australian musicians. In 2010, the trio was selected to be a part of the prestigious European Chamber Music Academy, where it was in residence for three years. Now based in Sydney, the trio has studied intensively with the world’s leading chamber 10

Named after the Australian Impressionist painter, Sir Arthur Streeton, the trio has received great acclaim for performances in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Het Loo Royal Palace (Holland), Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre, Melbourne Recital Centre, Trondheim Festival, Apeldoorn Festival, Pablo Casals Festival (Prades) and Bangalow Festival. Winner of the 2011 Music Viva Chamber Music Competition, the Streeton Trio has been laureate of several prestigious international competitions, and has won scholarships from Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Victoria and Ian Potter Cultural Trust. In 2012, the trio was featured as Musica Viva’s Rising Stars ensemble. The trio’s debut CD (Ravel Brahms), released in 2011, is broadcast frequently

across Australia and Europe. The CD has received rave reviews. The trio’s schedule has recently included performances across the United Kingdom, China, Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Holland, Lithuania, Norway, Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland. In 2015, the trio welcomed Umberto Clerici, principal cello of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, as their new cellist. © Streeton Trio

(02) 9250 7777 To finish the year, we venture to the dramatic side of CPE Bach and Haydn in a concert directed by Dr Erin Helyard from the keyboard. The program contains four works reflecting the 18th century ‘storm and stress’ movement. Often discussed in the context of literature, such musical works are often in minor keys and exhibit dramatic characteristics. CPE Bach’s Flute Concerto D minor, one of his most virtuosic and colourful, will showcase the exquisite and pure sounds of Australia’s leading period instrument flautist, Melissa Farrow. The Harpsichord Concerto G minor will be performed by our esteemed colleague, Dr Erin Helyard, preceeded by a stormy

E minor symphony for strings and winds. As the finale of our 2016 season, we present Haydn’s La Passione Symphony. This is his only orchestral work in the key of F minor, and one that illuminates the darker side of this otherwise sunny composer. December 2016

Jason Noble

Jason Noble Fine Music has launched series 2 of the radio programs called New Australian Music for HSC. The programs are designed to enhance the study of the HSC Senior Music core topic, Music of the Last 25 Years (Australian focus). The series is hosted by Australian clarinettist and music teacher Jason Noble who has led this project for Fine Music with assistance from the Australian Music Centre. ‘As a performer specialising in new music and an educator, I feel I have a relatively good

grasp of what is out there in terms of new Australian clarinet music. Yet when a Year 11 student inevitably turns up with the comment: My classroom teacher told me to choose an Australian piece for the core HSC topic, I still find the amount of time deliberating over what repertoire to choose timeconsuming. Was there anything out there to make this process easier?’ said Jason Noble. “I put two and two together, combining my performing and teaching skills, and came up with New Australian music for the HSC. I see the development of this radio program as being a valuable resource for music teachers and students, as well as the general public”, said Mr Noble. Works chosen for broadcast must have been composed in the last 25 years by an Australian composer for solo and duo works. Some of the more established composers,

such as Ross Edwards and Elena KatsChernin will be heard alongside lesser-known artists in an attempt to make students aware that there is an abundance of new works written for their instrument. Students studying the HSC Music 1 course could also find some interesting pieces to select should they choose the Australian Music elective or even the topic An Instrument and its Repertoire. There will be works presented to cater for a range of student abilities. Clarinettist Jason Noble is a core member of Ensemble Offspring and has premiered countless new Australian works. He has also taught music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Gondwana Voices, Moriah College, and in the public school system. His practice has also taken him to Kabul, Afghanistan, where he volunteered at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music. The programs are available by visiting

CD Reviews Land of Gold Anoushka Shankar DGG 479 5459


Sitar master Ravi Shankar had two beautiful, musical daughters: singer Nora Jones, and sitar virtuoso Anoushka – who you will remember from Concert for George. Land of Gold has its origins in the ongoing humanitarian tragedy of refugees fleeing warfare and persecution, which found a tragic symbol in the small, lifeless body of a Syrian boy washed-up on a Turkish beach: Aylan Kurdi. Shankar had recently



Conductor of the Ghislieri Choir & Consort founded in 2003, Giulio Prandi graduated at the Italian Universities of Pavia and Milan and he developed an expertise in Italian sacred music of the eighteenth century. REVERIE The Australian Voices Gordon Hamilton Conductor

✶✶✶✶✶ Founded in 1993, the group is dedicated to championing new Australian vocal music. The ensemble is well known to millions across the globe through its programme of new works intended specifically for performance on YouTube. Gordon Hamilton, a leading light in the new generation of composers and conductors, joined the group in 2009 and has maintained the group’s vibrant performances. Reverie is a collection of twelve works that bring together themes both banal and transcendent, juxtaposing music that is by turns deeply lyrical and ecstatically

given birth to a second child and was moved by the contrast between her ability to provide security for her family while others could not. Her playing is so eloquent, you feel she is speaking to you – and it’s a compassionate voice. How do you capture in music the fragility and desperation of fleeing people? Amazingly, there are moments on this album where she achieves this: Last Chance has a vehement urgency that refugees must feel; Say Your Prayers seems to capture the vulnerability of all humanity; and isn’t that shared vulnerability the reason we must care for each other? Given the context of this album, I’d like to be positive about everything here, but

Jump In (Cross the Line) uses the rapper M.I.A. and Dissolving the Boundaries has a theme with minimalist insistence; and it’s my fervent belief that rap and minimalism should never be labelled ‘music’. Reunion begins tentatively but eventually becomes a celebration, resolving a work that is the product of much sincere thought. Interesting that her husband is Director, Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, Anna Karenina) because this album would make a good film score. Regardless, Anoushka proves she’s not merely an accomplished musician, but someone with a heart. Her late, dear father would have been very proud. - Michael Muir

Dixit Dominus is Handel’s psalm setting consisting of 20 solo and choral tracks. The work completed in April 1707 while Handel was living in Rome is written for five singers with a second soprano part, chorus, strings and continuo. The work was premiered on 16 July 1707 in the Church of Santa Maria in Montesanto. At the very end of 1706, not yet 22 years of age, George Frideric Handel arrived in Rome. “Having shown off his skills to the amazement of everyone” on the organ of St John Lateran the young talent from beyond the Alps immediately established himself in the lively cultural fabric of the city. The compositions recorded on this CD here gave rise to the earliest masterpieces by the

Saxon, as German musicians were often called in Italy. By the first weeks of the year, Handel was already caught up in a dense network of aristocratic patronage and found himself playing the dual roles of composer and performer at the keyboard in a plethora of occasions when he worked alongside such established colleagues as Corelli and Alessandro Scarlatti. There is no doubting that members of the Choir and Consort produce a quite exquisite ambience of sound, the textures are pure and always balanced, the rhythm forward thrusting, crisp and persuasive. We will look forward greatly to hearing much more from these musicians.

ludicrous. A highlight of the album is a setting of Hamilton’s Elegy – In memoriam Rupert Brooke, written by Australian digger, Frederick Septimus Kelly, on the battlefields of Gallipoli and set to words by Kelly’s close friend Rupert Brooke.Total Political Correctness fast-forwards to politics of the 21st century, presenting Donald Trump’s statements on women set to music by Robert Davidson – which sits alongside Not Now, Not Ever!, a setting of then Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s Misogyny Speech – a parliamentary condemnation of sexism.

Lots of originality, undisguised creativity and pleasure, and well worth the cost of the CD.

He also composed the first two films of Francis Ford Coppola’s Godfather trilogy, receiving the Academy Award for Best Original Score for The Godfather Part II with the American Film Institute ranking Rota’s score number five on their list of the greatest film scores ever.

Strada and La Dolce Vita plus Juliette Of The Spirits and Otto e Mezzo.Rota could write a great tune and his driving force was a unique sense of melody combined with elements of folk, circus music and opera. He embodied these elements with lush orchestrations, marching bands and Italian swing whereas The Umbrellas approach is more of a salon chamber ensemble incorporating bits of wild saxophone, playful trombone and pocket trumpet. But there’s also vibes and marimba, mezzo - soprano voce and drum and bass to enjoy, all being accompanied by the piano, organ and accordion of maestro Peter Dasent who did all the arrangements.This recent re-issue of this 2001 recording of Rota’s

music is a potpourri of sonic magic extracted by the band from Rota via Fellini via Dasent in their unique way giving it new breath and continuous life. For happy music on a summer’s day it is highly recommended. - Barry O’Sullivan

Andy Sugg is a leading saxophonist and band leader based in Melbourne. His musical influences are eclectic and he performs in a range of styles from post-Coltrane jazz, world music and avant - garde contemporary music.The title of his latest recording is derived from a performance space in the trendy and hip Lower East Side of New York. It was here in a month in 2015 that Andy created most of the music on the album. He utilised a classic jazz lineup of saxophone, piano, bass and drums and adding synthesiser and the expertly accomplished guitar work of fellow Melbourne musician Ben Eunson. He also utilised the talented inputs of ex patriot Australians Sean Wayland and Matt Clohsey, alongside the New York based

drummer Nate Wood.The album’s theme is acoustic fusion, with moods ranging from the richly tonal to the aggressively avant-garde, laced with the superbly played tenor of Sugg most prominent on the tracks Hemispheric Parts 1,2 and 3 while on tracks like Mandela and Manhattan Beach it’s the piano of Sean Wayland that shines just as brightly. Throughout this recording each of musicians involved contributes solidly to create a musical collection of unique status executed by highly creative players with something to say both as soloists and as members of a collective. - Barry O’Sullivan

Weave is a collection of ten original heartfelt songs representing key events and milestones in the Byron Bay vocalist Leigh Carriage’s life. This poignant and beautifully crafted collection of original compositions subjecting nature, complicated love, atonements to dear friends and a tragic event that changed her life, make up her fifth album. This album follows on from the success of her highly acclaimed Mandarin Skyline. Woven into the fabric of this album is the musical input from an extremely impressive line up of mainly Melbourne based top flight musicians to compliment Carriage’s creative output. With Steve Russell on piano, Steve

Magnusson on guitar, Danny Fisher on drums, Frank Di Dario and Brendan Clarke alternating on bass there are also outstanding contributions from the horns of Julien Wilson,Carl Mackey, Phil Noy and Angela Davis plus numerous others on strings and vocals.The album emanates feelings of joy, passion and pain and an overall mood of introspection. On the outstanding tracks Blank Slate and Catapult (dedicated to fellow Byron Bay musician the late saxophonist Dave Ades) Carriage attains her star status vocally with faultless technique, sublime control and some very fine scatting. - Barry O’Sullivan

Eager that the vast fortune of the widow, Hanna Glawiri, should not be lost to povertystricken Principality of Pontevedra, Baron Zeta, the Ambassador to Paris, is anxious to marry her to Count Danilo. Hanna and Danilo were once in love but were prevented from marrying because she was poor. Danilo objects to the scheme because she is now rich and also it is rumoured that she is about to marry the French Comte Camille de Rosillon (who is in fact involved in a flirtation with the Baron’s wife, Valencienne). All ends happily, after enormous complications, with Hanna and Danilo confessing their love and agreeing to marry. Excerpts from The land of smiles.

Iago, another frustrated lover of Desdemona and a secret enemy of Otello, pretends to support Rodrigo’s courtship, in order to stir up trouble. A letter from Rodrigo is intercepted, which Iago gives to Otello, leading Otello to believe his wife is unfaithful. He plans to kill his wife and stabs her after breaking in to her bedchamber.

To the distress of her father, the water nymph, Rusalka, wishing to become a mortal for love of a prince, agrees to the price imposed by the witch Jezibaba: loss of the power of speech. Also, if the prince is faithless, they will both be damned. The prince takes Rusalka to his castle. His servants fear that he is under a spell and he finds the silent Rusalka unresponsive to his passion. He turns to a foreign princess, although he fears Rusalka’s magic. The princess leaves him to his fate. Jezibaba gives the abandoned Rusalka a knife: she will be saved if she kills the prince. But she is unable to do so. He comes in search of her. Changed into a will-o’-the wisp, she kisses him as he dies and begs for divine mercy for him.

LA PÉRICHOLE: Teresa Berganza, mezz PIQUILLO: José Carreras, ten DON ANDRÈS DE RIBEIRA: Gabriel Bacquier, bar Toulouse Capitole Ch & O/ Michel Plasson. EMI 1 73093 8 1:27 Two street-singers in Lima, La Périchole and her friend Piquillo, attract the attention of the Viceroy, Don Andrès de Ribeira, who offers the former a position as lady-inwaiting. Finding that favourites of the Viceroy must be married, Piquillo offers himself as husband to the unknown lady-in-waiting and is too drunk to notice that he is marrying La Périchole. She is too intoxicated to believe him when he tells her he will certainly be an unfaithful husband. Piquillo is imprisoned as an unwilling husband, but, sober and aghast when he discovers his wife is La Périchole, he escapes and eventually the couple win the approval of the Viceroy.

FÉ-NI-HAN (Anastase): Rémy Corazza, ten KO-KO-RI-KO: René Terrasson, bass Philippe Caillard Chorale; Jean-François Paillard O/Marcel Couraud. LP Erato DUE 20240 40 The action takes place at the palace of the Emperor Fè-ni-han who is facing an insurrection. It seems, through not speaking Chinese, he has accidentally impaled the five most virtuous people in the land. He is in fact a Frenchman, Anastase Nourrisson. In order to avoid execution, he was forced to assume the role of Emperor. Also involved in the action are two other French persons. Kéki-ka-ko who is the Viscount Alfred Cérisy, once shipwrecked on the coast of China, captured, tortured and condemned to only repeat the rebels’ song Ba-ta-clan. Fé-annich-ton is a singer, Virginie Durand, who was captured by the soldiers of Fé-ni-han. Having met, they decide to run away but are captured and sentenced to death. Fè-ni-han (Anastase) now decides to run away with Virginie and Alfred. Ko-ko-ri-ko, the leader of the insurrection, is also of French origin and he is ready to provide the means for their escape in order to become Emperor. All ends happily with a reprise of the Ba-ta-clan anthem, and Anastase, Virginie and Alfred depart for France. 17:30 STAGING MUSIC with Angela Cockburn Outer space 18:00 SOCIETY SPOT Classical Guitar Society Prepared by Sue McCreadie Castelnuovo-Tedesco, M.

Virgin 50999 6945450 9 2:24 To atone for killing his children, Ercole (Hercules) must perform twelve labors, the ninth of which is to travel to Termodonte and capture the sword of Antiope, the Queen of the Amazons. Amazons were female warriors who put all their male children to death. Ercole is accompanied by 3 other heroes, including Teseo, prince of Athens and Alceste, king of Sparta. They attack an Amazon hunting party and capture Martesia,the daughter of Queen Antiope. Teseo is concerned about attacking women, but rushes to help an Amazon attacked by a bear. It is the queen’s sister Ippolita and the two are attracted. Ippolita then prevents Antiope from sacrificing Teseo when he is captured. When Ercole indicates to Antiope that he will take only her weapons fighting ceases. The marriage of Ippolita with Teseo and of Martesia with Alceste are celebrated. Salve Regina, RV616.

RCA 88697448202 2:14 Iago hates Otello for having promoted Cassio as captain over his head. He lures Cassio into a drunken fight. Otello demotes Cassio. Otello and Desdemona celebrate their happiness. Iago rouses Otello’s jealousy by hinting that Cassio and Desdemona are lovers. When Desdemona asks Otello to reinstate Cassio, Otello refuses. He complains of a headache, but when Desdemona offers a handkerchief, Otello’s first love-token to her, he throws it to the ground where it is snatched by Iago. He continues to undermine Otello’s faith in Desdemona, claiming to have seen Cassio with the handkerchief, then letting Otello overhear a supposedly suspicious conversation with Cassio. Desperately jealous Otello strangles Desdemona and learns too late of Iago’s deceptions. He kills himself, kissing Desdemona as he dies. 22:30 PIANO PLUS ONE Prepared by Gael Golla Chausson, E.
