Rehabilitating the sacred side of Arthur Sullivan, Britain’s most performed composer

November 2018 saw the release of the first ever professional recording of Arthur Sullivan’s oratorio, The Light of The World, based on Biblical texts and focused on the life and teaching of Jesus. Reviewers focused as much on the piece as on the performance. The critical reaction to this work, which had been largely ignored and rarely performed for over 140 years, was extraordinary. Classical music magazines and websites hailed a revelatory discovery, with music of an engaging freshness and dire...

HMV May Be Rescued From Bankruptcy By Buyvia

Beleaguered music retailer HMV may be saved from bankruptcy by Buyvia, an online discount club with more than 200,000 members in the UK.

These off-grid routes, from mountainous lung-busters to scenic family rides, explore history as well as wildernessThe Malvern Hills are wilderness in the Midlands, outliers of the Welsh mountains and beloved by artists, writers, poets and composers. The Malverns were composer (and keen cyclist) Edward Elgar’s muse, and the inspiration for 14th-century poet William Langland, whose famous work Piers Plowman includes the words: “On a May morn...

Class Act: LA Master Chorale prepares for another landmark moment

It’s quite possible that when the Los Angeles Master Chorale unveiled its new Peter Sellars-directed production of “Lagrime di San Pietro” (“Tears of St. Peter”) by Renaissance composer Orlando Di Lasso to open its 2016-17 season that few in the organization had any idea that the production would become a landmark moment in LAMC’s storied history. However, such stories do occasionally occur in the classical-music realm, and LAMC has moved quickly to take advantage of the success of this producti...

The Movements of a Symphony Conductor Get Artistically Visualized in an Avant-Garde Motion Capture Animation

Some classical music enthusiasts are purists with regard to visual effects, listening with eyes firmly fixed on liner notes or the ceilings of grand concert halls. Those open to a more avant-garde ocular experience may enjoy the short motion capture animation above. Motivated by the London Symphony Orchestra’s desire for a hipper identity, the project hinged on recently appointed Musical Director Sir Simon Rattle’s willingness to conduct Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations with a specially mod...

Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

2018 marks the centenary of the death of Hubert Parry, one of the finest and most influential ­musicians of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Over the last few months I have had the privilege of making the first critical edition of his late choral masterpiece, the Songs of Farewell, with reference to the autograph manuscripts, held in the Bodleian Library, and a set of early printed versions. I’ve known these marvellous pieces for years—partly through the classic recording made ...

‘Blade Runner 2049’: Composer Benjamin Wallfisch on How to Follow Up a Classic Sci-Fi Score

It’s been a big year for composer Benjamin Wallfisch. First, he reimagined Edward Elgar’s “Nimrod” to create the most talked-about musical moment in Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk”; then he composed a complex, frightening symphonic score for “It,” now the most successful horror movie of all time; and most recently, he collaborated with Hans Zimmer on the […]

The Proms–Elgar/Payne, Glass/Shankar, Mingus/Metropole,Schoenberg

Three works on the Proms in August raised issues of authorship and authenticity, among other things. Sir Edward Elgar in the last two years of his life was engaged in the composition of his Third Symphony, which had been encouraged by his friend George Bernard Shaw and commissioned by the BBC. When he died in February of 1934, he left 130 pages of sketches, mostly in short score with few indications of instrumentation, and for many years they were given little attention, and the work conside...

15 Movies Defined By Amazing Song Choices

Music is a powerful tool in a moviemaker’s arsenal. The right song can make a movie as much as the wrong song can break it, and the best musical cues come to be indelibly linked with the scenes they accompany. Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, know this well, using music to define key sequences and lend a unique flavor to an already offbeat space opera. Here, we take a look at some of the best uses of music in movies that already boast impeccable soundtrack...
