Montreal Has Two Major Orchestras Led By Star Conductors. And They’re Thriving

Nowhere else in North America can you find two symphony orchestras (as opposed to chamber orchestras) with touring schedules and substantial discographies led by conductors of international repute. Both enjoy government and corporate support. And if they attract different audiences, this dynamic can be taken as complementary rather than adversarial. – Montreal Gazette

Should The Classical Music World Just Cancel The 19th Century?

Musicologist Doug Shadle introduces his new blog/newsletter by suggesting that both the professional concert ecosystem and conservatory education can’t modernize, as everyone seems to think they should, because of “nineteenth-century elitism designed to exclude and punish rather than help students thrive. These values are so pervasive that we often can’t see them for what they are.” – The Classical Alternative

Phil Kennicott’s Ruminations On The Power Of Music Amidst Grief

“When grief loosens its hold, you return to the world you once knew, only to find it transformed by the thing that is missing; when, at the end of the Goldberg Variations, Bach repeats the aria with which it began, it is utterly transfigured. It is like the river in which one can never step foot twice, and Bach seems to say: ‘You’ve never heard this thing you think you know so well’.” – Van

Welcome to Hell: the marvelous, mad musical instruments of Ewa Justka

Some people claim electronic music is the work of the devil. Inventor Ewa Justka creates things that could actually prove it. Ewa is a Glasgow, Scotland UK-based, Polish-born sound artist, musician, and inventor. She can bang her way through a raw techno set, she can blind you wish flashing lights driven by homemade circuits, or she can open a gateway to evil realms in unbridled noise – all of this at festivals like CTM, Unsound, Insomnia, and Sonic Acts.

Stream: Pablo Dylan, ‘Burial of the Dead’

There’s a justifiable urgency coursing through “Burial of the Dead,” the new single from 24-year-old singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Pablo Dylan. “Fear no more the winter’s rage,” Dylan sings, mashing up a couplet from a song in Shakespeare’s “Cymbeline” (“Fear no more the heat o’ the sun / Nor the furious winter’s rages”). While the Bard had mortality on his mind, Dylan is concerned with other demises. “‘Burial of the Dead’ is about the death of intellectualism and the ons...
