The Gift of Music… Stand-out CDs (and one LP) from 2012 By Scott Gudell 2012 is another year with strong releases but with an interesting number of new discs put out by artists that have been recording since the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Here’s just a few we highly recommend: Use Me – David Bromberg (Appleseed Music) His lonesome, plaintive “someone done me wrong” voice is like a howling wind on a dusty road about half past midnight. Bromberg has always been rooted in the most basic of blues and Use Me continues to showcase his earthy style at its best. A lover of all stringed instruments, he features guitars, banjo, fiddles, mandolin and more while getting help from some pretty influential friends including  Dr. John, Keb’ Mo’, Los Lobos and the late Levon Helm. Old Ideas – Leonard Cohen (Columbia Records) His may be the sound and voice that welcomes or challenges you at the creaky gates of heaven.  As a chorus of angels sing in the background, he’ll ask if you’ve suffered long and hard enough, as he sings “show me the place where suffering began.” You can debate whether Leonard Cohen is a poet or a singer, but you can’t debate the complexity and  depth of his emotions. Delivered with guttural, evenly paced vocals that begin low and swell to dramatic heights, Cohen has been mesmerizing us for a half century. Born To Sing: No Plan B – Van Morrison (Blue Note Records) This is simply the next chapter in a rich, rewarding chronology.  The first chapter told of an Irishman who topped the charts as part of the 1960’s British Inva-

sion with songs such as “Gloria” and “Brown Eyed Girl.” Solo chapters included “Moondance” and “Wild Night.” Later solo discs introduced more ethereal horns, saxes and compelling instrumentals. Then there were blues, R and B and jazz. The newest chapter is a continuation, with muted trumpets, a slow motion journey back to 1950’s R and B and the harsh reality of a song such as “End of the Rainbow.”  At the end of the disc, he takes us home with a John Lee Hooker inspired boogie blues that’s as rich and gritty as anything Morrison has ever presented.   Dramatically differ-

ent than past works? No. A wellcrafted new chapter? Yes. A London Symphony (No. 2)/ Serenade to Music: Ralph Vaughan Williams/ Rochester Philharmonic conducted by Christopher Seaman (Harmonia Mundi Records) It’s not essential that the conductor of this dramatic English symphony be English, but it helps. It’s not essential that he

developed a long time friendship with Sir Adrian Boult (one of only a few conductors recognized as presenting definitive versions of Vaughan Williams’ work), but it helps. Christopher Seaman and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra are intimately familiar with the music of Vaughan Williams and together create a true representation of a vibrant London circa a century ago. The four movement symphony moves from upbeat and optimistic to plaintive, to hustle and bustle, and then to the serenity and stillness of the night. There are bold flourishes as well as tender, intimate passages. As

•NEXT FALL - The 2012/13 “Hornets’ Nest” series of script-inhand readings with professional actors and directors returns to Geva Theatre Center’s Nextstage, 75 Woodbury Blvd., with three plays that investigate the most difficult and controversial questions of today. On Monday, December 10, the first show, Next Fall by Geoffrey Nauffts, will be offered. The play takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love through the fiery year relationship between befitting England’s most majestic city, the piece represents all that a late 19th/early 20th century city of millions would conjure up. It salutes the city and the River Thames and its long journey to the sea as the symphony comes to a tranquil conclusion. The work ultimately conjures up numerous images and captures the spirit of the crown jewel of the United Kingdom. (The disc is rounded out with the twelve minute “Serenade to Music” featuring Concertmaster Juliana Athayde on solo violin and singers from Mercury Opera Rochester.)

On November 30, Hochstein Performance Hall at 50 N. Plymouth Avenue will host Biodance Magazine in our first review of this disc in 1984, Sade offers: “…an international sampling of fashionable sounds guaranteed to be healthy evergreens that are very unlikely to fade with time…As the album title points out, the music is sharp, radiant and glowing.” Now it’s available on a 180-gram virgin-vinyl LP and only 5000 copies have been pressed. So what’s the advantage? Many LPs from decades ago were released on softer vinyl that could wear quickly with repeated spins. Recycled vinyl added impurities and potential distortion. The new discs are harder, thus longer lasting.   An impromptu comparison ranks the three discs in this order: the Audio Fidelity first , the original 1984 LP second (since both LPs provide the ”warmth” of vinyl) and a later CD release third. But it’s the new disc that will having you shouting out requests since you’ll be convinced Sade is in the

But there  is also uplifting optimism as she looks to â&#x20AC;&#x153;blueâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;mosaicâ&#x20AC;? skies, or reflects fondly on precious friendships.   The only sin Patti Smith committed this time around?

The Free Blades of Winter by Mark Tichenor When was the last time you went skating? With so much competition for people’s attention and entertainment dollars, it’s easy to forget about such a simple pastime. A great many people haven’t been out on the ice since childhood. Lots of people also take to the ice for competitive figure skating or hockey. Yet for many, a free skate at the rink is a place associated with romance, music, grace, and a celebration of all that is good about winter. If you haven’t tried skating yourself, the learning cur ve isn’t as steep as it seems, and there’s a real sense of speed and freedom as you glide across the ice. It’s also great low-impact cardiovascular exercise. And while there are some risks involved, many take relief in the fact that, over the past twenty years, accident rates involving getting clubbed in the knee with a collapsible baton have fallen to nearly zero. Being known as something of a winter town, Rochester comes loaded with indoor and outdoor places where you can strap on the blades and go whizzing around in circles on a slippery surface with a hardness approaching that of diamonds. The classic skating experience is in Manhattan Square Park, 353 Court Street near the Strong Museum of Play. For decades, the rink on the park’s south side served as a post-holiday shopping playground. It’s open MondaySaturday, noon-8:30 pm; Sunday noon-7 pm. Call for open skating hours. Skate rental is available. Fairport Village has a top-notch rink as well. The Fairport Junction Ice Rink, on Liftbridge Lane, is in its seventh season of offering

pleasurable outdoor free skating. If you’re not that committed a winter sport enthusiast, you can rent skates at nearby RV&E Bike and Skate, 40 North Main Street, Fairport Village. While many purists would say that outdoor skating is ideal, Rochester’s fickle weather doesn’t always cooperate. Fortunately, you have a bunch of options when you need to take your skating indoors. The largest facility, The Sports Centre at MCC, offers open skating in between league hockey games on three NHL-sized rinks. There’s also a full-service Bill Gray’s restaurant and pub upstairs for when you need a break from all that fun. Admission is $7 for adults, $4 for children, and they’ll rent you some skates. Check www.tscmcc.com for open skate times. Lakeshore Hockey Arena, at 123 Ling Road in Greece, has open skating Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday Afternoons. They also offer skating lessons for those with shaky ankles or small children. Moreover, they feature bumper cars on ice, a family-friendly activity in which people pilot round, inf latable sided vehicles vigorously into each other. With all the hoopla surrounding its hockey team, there’s no way RIT is missing out on the winter sports action. When the Tigers aren’t up to their faceguards in puck-slapping action, the Frank Ritter Memorial Ice Arena offers open skate, skating lessons and occasional hockey clinics. This is by no means a comprehensive description of the dozens of skating facilities in and around Rochester. Freetime has compiled a list for your convenience. (See Winter Wonders pg. 23-24) You can also find a directory, complete with reviews, at www.rinktime. com.   Skate well. The winter is shorter than you think.

beer CRAFT

There’s Nothing Wrong With Having A Big Head

By Mark Tichenor The beer scene is all about pushing the envelope. Each new beer is bigger, stronger, hoppier or more sour. But sometimes the way to grow is to take a step back toward the fundamentals. That’s what Three Heads Brewing did with their new seasonal release, Big Head Stout. With the exception of the Irish dry style, you don’t see a lot of plain old stouts. Right now it’s all about insanely strong imperial stouts made with unicorn horns and virgin’s tears, then aged in 100 year old whiskey barrels. In that sense, Big Head is a retrenchment, free of gimmicks or pretense. It’s comfort beer that takes the Heads back to their days slaving over the basement brewkettle. “When we did homebrewing competitions, the beer that consistently got the most medals was our stout,” says Geoff Dale, co-partner and head of sales for the company. “This is a stout you can have three pints of, but still not feel like it’s a watered-down weenie beer.” Named after Three Heads employee Brian Johnson’s magnificent cranium, Big Head Stout packs a lot of character into that pint glass. As you’d expect, it’s pitch dark, with tons of vanilla and hazelnut in both nose and

& MUSIC

flavor, but without the ’burned’ quality that’s so characteristic of stouts due to the heavily roasted malt. This makes the 7% abv Big Head instinctively, dangerously drinkable. And yes, my freshly poured example had a big, voluminous head. The beer’s texture serves as the delivery vehicle for all that flavor, it’s silky, almost chewy, but doesn’t get so heavy as to be cloying. It’ll fill you up, but you’ll wind up happy to be full. It’s like the beer version of home cooking, and seconds are hard to resist. Big Head Stout is a limitedrelease seasonal beer. The first 60 barrel batch is completely spoken for by pubs, restaurants and distributors, and there will be a second 20 barrel batch to follow. Dale says the Heads are playing it by ear, gauging consumer demand before planning a third time on the brew schedule. It’s cur rently on draft in Rochester at The Tap and Mallet, but you’ll soon be able to find it across the city and throughout Three Heads’ 10-state distribution area in places where they give a crap about good beer. Really, Big Head Stout demonstrates a maturation for Three Heads, whose partners enjoy blurring style boundaries and occasionally playing with wacky ingredients. It takes a certain wisdom to realize that beer is an ancient beverage that stood the test of time for a reason, and sometimes the finest, most luxurious things are borne of simplicity. It’s a pity this is a seasonal release. Here’s to a very long season. In other beers T h e n e w G e n e s e e Ta p House’s 20 barrel brewery finally swung into action. Three new small-batch beers are now available for tasting and on draft in their upstairs pub: A Scotch ale, blonde ale and pale ale. The beers are also available to take home in growlers.

November 28 - December 12, 2012 FREETIME

SCREEN

ANNA KARENINA Written by Tom Stoppard; directed by Joe Wright Focus Features Rated R By Ed Symkus There’s no doubt that Leo Tolstoy’s two most popular novels are Anna Karenina and War and Peace. But when moved from the printed page to the big screen, one of them easily takes first place in the popularity contest. War and Peace has been made nine times as a feature film, twice as a TV movie, and twice as a TV miniseries. Anna Karenina has been made into 18 feature films, four TV movies, and one TV miniseries. So the question arises: Do we really need another Anna Karenina? Put into the inventive hands of writer Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Brazil) and director Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Hanna), the answer is an emphatic yes. This new version, which is absurdly rated R by the MPA A for “some sexuality and violence,” is different than any that have come before it. Running at just over two hours, it certainly sticks closer to Tolstoy’s lengthy book than any of its predecessors, smartly leaving in, and even focusing on, some

of the book’s major characters that are usually relegated to the background when put on film. For instance, Kitty and Levin (Alic ia Vik ander, Domhnall Gleeson) are right up there in importance with the title character and her men, unlike in either of the Greta Garbo versions (she did a silent and a sound one), where they were pretty much forgotten. Of course, the film is about Anna (Keira Knightley, too skinny but terrific in the part); her older husband Karenin (Jude Law), who ignores and bores her; and Count Vronsky (Aaron Johnson), the dashing but naïve young soldier with whom she begins a torrid and carelessly public affair. That’s something you didn’t want to do in late-19th century Russian high society, where tongues wagged, and such behavior just wasn’t accepted. Anna, who mar ried young, and has only been with one man, can’t quite figure out what’s going on. Is this love or is it lust, and what’s the difference? Actually, all she really cares about is her young son, and no access to him is the punishment doled out by her husband when he finds out about her dalliance. Joe Wright manages to get great performances from everyone. That might not have been a big deal with Knightley, as they worked together before on Pride

•••••••••••••••••••••

& Prejudice and Atonement, and there’s no doubt that they’ve developed an excellent actor-director relationship. But Wright is equally successful with Jude Law – you might not recognize him at first, as he’s made to look so plain and ordinary here – and Aaron Johnson. Johnson, for the record, is a

27

chameleon, recently starring as a teenaged John Lennon in Nowhere Boy, one of the two drug dealers in Savages, and in the title role of Kick-Ass. With all of that good stuff going on with the acting, the film takes a couple of steps upward in its physical presentation. There’s no doubt there will be Oscar nominations for costuming and set design (and maybe even for Knightley). But there isn’t an Oscar for what the film is best at: mixing the sensibilities of cinema and theater. What’s best and most challenging about the film is that the story is initially played out on a theater stage, where you can even see people moving props around. But then someone opens a door on the stage, and the characters walk through it, and suddenly we’re out on the Russian tundra, or at a noisy train station, or in a huge ballroom (where a brilliantly choreographed dance sequence takes place). Then later on we’re back on the stage. It’s dazzling and a little confusing. But the big question goes back to the one about why they keep remaking this movie. It’s about the character of Anna Karenina. Do we love her or do we hate her? Is she a heroine or is she villainous? How can she do this to her loving husband – if he really does love her – and not seem to care about doing it? I don’t know the answers. Maybe that’s why it’s still fascinating.
