Fanny Hensel book

Composer Fanny Hensel (née Mendlessohn) may have received extra attention in March because of Women’s History Month, but her music makes for good listening all year round.

R. Larry Todd, Arts and Sciences Professor at Duke University, has written an excellent, engaging biography of Fanny Hensel (Mendelssohn) – Fanny Hensel: The Other Mendelssohn.  I recommend reading this book to learn more about Fanny Hensel’s music, her life, the time in which she lived, and her relationship with her brother, composer Felix Mendelssohn. 

You can also get an introduction by listening to my interview with the author, Professor Larry Todd:

Beethoven!

Beethoven’s beloved Symphony No. 9 (the “Ode to Joy”) will be performed several times in West Virginia this month – in Charleston, Morgantown, and Parkersburg.  It’s one of those pieces that you definitely should go out and experience live.

Maestro Grant Cooper

This Friday and Saturday in Charleston, the WV Symphony Orchestra and the WV Symphony Chorus, with singers from WVU and Marshall will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, led by Maestro Grant Cooper. They will also present this program on Sunday in Parkersburg.

Maestro Arnold
Maestro Mitchell Arnold

Then next week, the WVU Symphony and WVU Symphony Chorus will feature Beethoven’s Ninth on their April 22nd concert in Morgantown, led by Maestro Mitchell Arnold. 

No two performances are alike.  And it’s the conductor who makes many of the decisions that affect how each performance sounds.  To find out more about Beethoven’s music and how it will be interpreted here in West Virginia, I went to the two conductors that will be leading their ensembles in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. 

Spend a half hour in good company with these due maestri -- Grant Cooper and Mitchell Arnold -- discussing Beethoven and his music.  You can stream the audio below, or download it as a podcast.

“Music is my life, my joy, it’s my passion…it brings us to a different place, it allows us to find another world than the one that we are in this current moment.  It’s a very powerful thing, and I feel fortunate to work in the field of music.”  -- Sylvia Alimena
 

Today, the National Symphony Orchestra is heading home to Washington DC after their eight-day residency in West Virginia. The orchestra took up residence in Wheeling, Morgantown, Glenville, Huntington, Charleston, and Princeton, and from these cities, the musicians traveled to towns throughout the state, where they shared music through a variety of classes and concerts.

Sylvia Alimena
Sylvia Alimena

Monday afternoon, just a few hours before the NSO played an excellent concert at the Clay Center in Charleston, horn player Sylvia Alimena stopped by WV Public Radio for an interview. She had already played two concerts earlier in the day!

Alimena has played horn with the NSO for 25 years. She also conducts the Eclipse Chamber Orchestra, a smaller ensemble made up of members of the National Symphony Orchestra. The Eclipse Chamber Orchestra has two recent recordings – one of comic opera overtures by 18th-century composer Florian Leopold Gassmann and one of music by contemporary composer Mark Adamo. They are currently working on the third recording in this set, featuring music by Truman Harris. Alimena's other projects include conducting the McLean Orchestra and directing the youth program Brass of Peace.

Jennifer Higdon
Composer Jennifer Higdon

Congratulations to Jennifer Higdon!  She has just been awarded the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Music, for her Violin Concerto. 

Here's some of what she wrote about this music:

"I believe that one of the most rewarding aspects of life is exploring and discovering the magic and mysteries held within our universe. For a composer this thrill often takes place in the writing of a concerto … it is the exploration of an instrument’s world, a journey of the imagination, confronting and stretching an instrument’s limits, and discovering a particular performer’s gifts."

She also has a West Virginia connection: The Wheeling Symphony has featured music by Higdon on its concerts, including her "Concerto 4-3," which the Wheeling Symphony co-commissioned with the Pittsburgh Symphony and the Philadelphia Orchestra. 

Read more about Jennifer Higdon and the Pulitzer Prize here. (Sorry to run, but I have an interview with a horn player in three minutes!)

The National Symphony Orchestra has been touring West Virginia for the past week (they play in Charleston Monday night).  They've played orchestra and chamber concerts, taught master classes, given talks, presented at schools ...

This Saturday in Morgantown, pianist Stephen Hough  will play Tchaikovsky’s Second Piano Concerto with the Pittsburgh Symphony, led by conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier (they will also play this concert in Pittsburgh on Friday and Sunday). 

Tchaikovsky’s Second Piano Concerto is less often heard than the first, but Hough recommends it as having “beautiful melodies,” as well as being “touching, exciting, and full of pianistic fireworks.”

Hough has, “intensely passionate convictions about this music.” It comes through in his discussion of this concerto and of Tchaikovsky’s music. Listen below to hear him discuss this music, as well as his other performances, recordings, writing, and compositions.

Hungarian Dances (part 2)

 · April 8, 2010


I struggle with a problem that seems all too common in the United States today. This struggle can be summed up in a simple question: what is my heritage? Or, perhaps, where are my roots? 

My grandmother’s parents came over on a boat from Hungary around the turn of the 20th century. Unfortunately, my mother’s parents passed away before I ever had the chance to get to know them.

Hungary Flag
Hungarian Flag

All I know of this heritage is what my Mom has passed on to me -- she does make some really amazing cabbage rolls!  But there are times when I long for a greater connection to my roots.

My great uncle (my grandmother’s brother) was the first child of the family to be born in America. He just passed away in 2007. I enjoyed a good relationship through the years with him, but never really got to sit down and have good long heart-to-heart discussions about our ‘motherland.’

From my mother, I have gained a love and appreciation of history. She has always been passionate about these memories from her own past and the romanticism of times and places before her own time.

Johannes Brahms
Johannes Brahms

Such appreciations have no doubt fostered my love of classical music, and in time they led me to Brahms’s Hungarian Dances. I have learned through the years of these pieces and how some of them can be traced back to old Hungarian folk songs. It’s kind of humorous to me in a way that all these pieces were written by a German, but nevertheless; these tunes have in years past been some of my favorite music ever.

Which brings me to the point: what makes these pieces so special to me?  Is it a longing for another place and time - that is mine, though not quite my own?  I read in some articles that the Hungarian Dances are some of Brahms’s most beloved pieces, which makes me think that maybe my experience of this music is not quite as singular and unique as I originally thought. I don’t like to think that way. I would rather try to hang on to any scrap of history that I might have! 

Below is a choice performance of Hungarian Dance No. 7, performed by the duet of Jascha Heifetz (violin) and Emmanuel Bay (piano). Bravo!  Asked about his own life, Heifetz said:

"Born in Russia, first lesson at three, debut at seven, debut in America at 17. That's all there really is."

As an avid music lover, I can think of several composers, bands, songs, albums, compositions, that if asked, I would claim as my favorite in whatever category we would discuss. I love talking about music to be sure!


But in the course of my own casual listening, I always find pieces and composers that I seem to ‘forget’ about. Unfortunately, Johannes Brahms is one of those composers in my life. I always love his music when I hear it, but so often, I’m not listening to his compositions and time marches on.


The following is a great video of one of my favorite compositions attributed to Brahms. This video is a duet of Yehudi Menuhin, one of the greatest violin virtuosos of the 20th century, with pianist Adolph Baller, playing “Hungarian Dance No. 5.

 

Composer Johannes Brahms was born in Hamburg Germany May 7, 1833. The series of “Hungarian Dances” written by Brahms, 21 pieces in all, are among my favorite compositions ever, even though I often fail to mention them among my favorites.

Brahms completed the Hungarian Dances in 1869. Check out this site with Brahms' life in pictures, featuring great candid photos of Johannes Brahms himself.

Comfort in Music

“Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.”
 
      -Brahms Requiem (Matthew 5:4)


In times of sadness and loss, do you turn to music?  What music comforts you? Or do you look for music that distracts you?

Today on the radio, we featured music that I hope provides some comfort -- music of mourning, but also of hope (the list of music that was on the radio today can be found here). 

Some of the pieces are so powerful and so sad that they can be overwhelming, while also consoling and connecting us: The Unanswered Question by Charles Ives, Brahms’ Requiem (and those by Mozart, Fauré, and others), Barber’s Adagio for Strings

There are many other pieces, perhaps including some music that is particularly special for you.  If you have music that is meaningful to you that you think might also comfort others, please share your thoughts in the comments.
  

Here's some music that I've been drawn to:

Easter with Golijov

Chocolate Bunnies

Messiah on the radio, chocolate bunnies at the store – hey, is Easter this weekend?  I have enjoyed hearing music by Handel, Bach, Gesualdo for the holiday, and I’ve also been taking some extra time to listen to newer music –  La Pasión segun San Marcos by Osvaldo Golijov.

 

Pasion album

Golijov’s Pasión was premiered ten years ago – Alex Ross wrote about it in The New Yorker in 2001, NPR included a previous concert recording as one of the most important classical albums of the past decade.  I must have been living under a rock, because I only discovered this music recently, through a listening guide that I received as a preview of the new recording. It’s beautiful. 

Check out the listening guide here – you can stream the audio online to hear selections from La Pasión segun San Marcos, interwoven with the composer talking about the music.

The whole listening guide is 40 minutes long, and it’s broken up into tracks that are each just a few minutes long. Listen.

You can also get a small sample of this music from this video preview:

If you want hear more music by Osvaldo Golijov, I recommend his song cycle Ayre (my personal favorite). His Web site has more information about his works.

What do you think of Golijov’s music and La Pasión segun San Marcos?  Do you have favorite Easter classics?  Share your thoughts in the comments below!
