Michelangelo’s middlebrow moment

In today’s Wall Street Journal “Sightings” column, I write about how Irving Stone—and Charlton Heston—introduced Michelangelo to a generation of American readers and filmgoers. Here’s an excerpt. *  *  * Like Shakespeare and Beethoven, Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) is one of those giants of Western culture who is known by only one name—and not just to highbrows but pretty much everybody. Even those whose awareness of the visual arts is restricted to the Mona Lisa and “The Last Sup...

Toradze’s Piano Stories

Behrouz Jamali has created the kind of film I had always hoped to see about Alexander Toradze.  I permits Toradze to speak for an hour without abridgement or abbreviation. It abjures soundbites.  I believe it should be seen by all devotees of the piano, and to fledgling pianists at music schools and conservatories. Born in Tbilisi in 1952, Toradze graduated from the Moscow Conservatory, toured the West as a Soviet artist, defected to the United States in 1983, and has since taught an...

Leon Theremin Advertises the First Commercial Production Run of His Revolutionary Electronic Instrument (1930)

“The theremin specifically, and Leon Theremin’s work in general is the biggest, fattest, most important cornerstone of the whole electronic music medium. That’s were it all began.” — Robert Moog In the mid-twentieth century, the theremin — patented by its namesake inventor Leon Theremin (Lev Sergeyevich Termen) in 1928 — became something of a novelty, its sound associated with sci-fi and horror movies. This is unfortunate given its pedigree as the first electronic musical instrumen...

Fifty years ago

Louis Armstrong died fifty years ago today at his home in Queens. I have spent much of the last decade and a half thinking and writing about Armstrong—first in a biography, Pops, then in a play, Satchmo at the Waldorf—and I expect I’ve said by now what I have to say about his beautiful, blessed life and work. So instead of trying to find a new way to sum up my feelings, I’ll simply reprint a passage from the last chapter of Pops. I hope you enjoy it. *  *  * Armstrong’s own unpublished ...

Podcast #616: A Guide for the Journey to Your True Calling

Editor’s Note: This is a rebroadcast. It originally aired June 2020. One of the most burning questions in life is what it is you’re called to do with it. What is your life’s purpose? What great work are you meant to do? Guidance on this question can come from many sources, and my guest today says that one of the best is the Bhagavad Gita, a text of Hindu scripture thousands of years old. He’s a psychotherapist, yoga teacher, and author of The Great Work of Your Life: A Guide for the Journey t...

Missing the forest for the trees: interpreting the composer’s message

Several years ago, I decided to make the switch to drinking tea in place of other beverages. I treated myself to “top shelf” teas and stored them where the previously small collection had been housed—literally on the top shelf. Not being very tall, every time I wanted a cup of tea I had to climb on the kitchen counter to reach my new-found friends. I did this for a couple of years until I finally stepped back, looked at the overall situation instead of each tin of tea, and decided to simply move...

How James Taylor and Joni Mitchell inspired the musical romance of ‘Songs in Ursa Major’

When up-and-coming musician Jane Quinn and her band first encounter Vincent Ray, the legendary music producer stares right past her as if she doesn’t exist. When Quinn boldly stands up to Ray, it fuels much of the drama in Emma Brodie’s entertaining debut novel, “Songs In Ursa Major,” which imagines fictionalized versions of Joni Mitchell (Jane) and James Taylor (Jesse Reid). “We’ve been all been exposed to so much misogyny on such a grand scale for the past four or five years that you’re seein...

‘I’m working through 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die’: readers’ WFH playlists

Some of you went classic rock; others Iranian ambient. And yet others took on epic challenges that will take years to complete … here’s what you’ve been listening to while working under lockdownIf I need to concentrate on something really thorny, I go for Bach every time.

Raiders of the Lost Ark’s Horror Elements Are What Make It Legendary

Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite film. Like, to the degree that if I were marooned on a desert island and given the option between water and Steven Spielberg’s classic 1981 action blockbuster, I’d go with the latter. The film released before I was born, and I didn’t really discover it until later in my life when my tastes evolved from Beethoven’s 2nd to Die Hard, but since my “discovery” of famed archeologist Indiana Jones, life has always carried a lot more depth and meaning … okay, not ...

Conductor Grant Llewellyn, Late Of North Carolina Symphony, Makes His Way Back From A Stroke

Last summer, back home in Wales after completing his 16-year term in Raleigh, he suffered what turned out to be a three-day stroke that severely impaired the use of his right arm and leg. After a month’s hospitalization and six months of physical therapy, though he can’t hold a baton, he is back working with the Orchestre national de Bretagne, his ensemble in Rennes, France. “The irony of my situation is that I can conduct Beethoven symphonies but I can’t get out of bed.

The Power of Pocket Pads

Editor’s note: The following excerpt was taken from the chapter “How to Plan to Produce,” included in The Technique of Getting Things Done (1947) by Donald Laird.  “You taught me one of the most useful things I ever learned,” a former student, now vice-president of a nationwide corporation, told me. I preened as I waited for him to return some of my own pearls of wisdom. “I learned it by watching you,” he continued, pulling a 2-cent pad from his vest pocket. “We noticed that you often wrote som...
