Live from Covent Garden review, Royal Opera House: a jolly mix of popular arias and pas de deux

This was a bit more like it. After a weirdly arcane first concert and a second one austerely devoted to the sublime heights of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, the Royal Opera House knuckled down to the equally noble and needful business of cheering us all up. Streamed live from an audience-less Covent Garden, here was a jolly programme of operatic plums, sung by charming members of the opera’s resident young artists scheme, interspersed with two exquisitely beautiful pas de deux, danced by off-s...

These States May Already Be Doomed for a Second Lockdown

As states rush to reopen after pandemic-triggered lockdowns, public health experts say new surges could soon warrant a second set of stay-at-home orders. Of course, it remains far from clear that some of these same states’ governors—who were often slow to lock down in the first place—will be willing to do it. The political pressure to restart economies and release people from isolation has been fierce. But failing to act again, however painful, could see the same states overwhelmed by COVID-19 c...

Helping The Handel And Haydn Society Head Into The Future, By Acknowledging The Real Past

The Handel and Haydn Society has been around, performing Baroque concerts on period instruments, since 1815. And now it’s time to diversify their programming – and acknowledge the diversity they’ve already had, says Reginald Mobley, their new programming consultant. “‘There are so many composers that are female or black or queer that have existed long before we really thought of race or sexuality as a social construct,’ says Mobley. … ‘What it does is gives a sense of belonging … to all of thes...

A refined Acis and Galatea at Cadogan Hall

The first performance of Handel's two-act Acis and Galatea - variously described as a masque, serenata, pastoral or ‘little opera’ - took place in the summer of 1718 at Cannons, the elegant residence of James Brydges, Earl of Carnavon and later Duke of Chandos.

The Secret of the “Perfect Montage” at the Heart of Parasite, the Korean Film Now Sweeping World Cinema

For nearly as long as mankind has tried to commit the perfect crime, mankind has tried to tell stories of the perfect crime. Both endeavors demand intensive planning, the story of the crime perhaps even more rigorously so than the crime itself. No less obsessive a teller and reteller of "perfect crime" stories than Alfred Hitchcock knew that well, and so he remains an icon of such storytelling in cinema. Hence the visual reference, albeit a vanishingly brief one, to the master of suspens...

How to take your dog backpacking

Adventure outdoors has a way of bringing people together, and for many dog owners, it’s also a way to bond with their four-legged friend. Few people know that bond quite as well as Nicole Handel and her trail dog Bear. Handel was never the outdoorsy type, but after inheriting Bear in the aftermath of a breakup she realized that, like most dogs, the active German Shepherd loved spending time outside. The two began hiking regularly in the woods and mountains near their home in Vermont, and wha...

The musical entrepreneurship behind the ‘Hallelujah’ Chorus

The musical entrepreneurship behind the ‘Hallelujah’ Chorus Although it was intended to be an Easter composition, the “Hallelujah” Chorus from Handel’s Messiah has become the musical diadem of the Christmas season. It has already in early January vanished from the radio, because the modern West pre-celebrates all its holidays. (The Christmas season traditionally spans the “12 days of Christmas,” from December 25 until the feast of Epiphany on January 6.) Ho...

10 economic lessons from ‘Emmett Otter’s Jugband Christmas’

10 economic lessons from ‘Emmett Otter’s Jugband Christmas’ Jim Henson’s beloved Emmett Otter’s Jugband Christmas first entered the hearts of Canadian children in December 1977 and made its U.S. debut on HBO one year later. The musical Muppet adventure tells the story of widow Alice Otter and her tenderhearted son, Emmett, who decide the only way they can afford Christmas presents this year is to win a talent competition – with an exacting entrance fee.

Christmas Eve reflections on the importance of humility

Tomorrow is Christmas. We can spend a lot of time on the theology of what Christmas signifies.  Brighter minds than mine have tried to demystify the concept of God, a higher power, a diffuse presence that unites all life.  Better scholars than I have read the sacred scriptures of their faiths, written books, and given sermons inspired by what they found.  I take nothing from them—literally, God bless them! But the whole idea of believing in something beyond what our five senses tell us is becaus...

Best live music venues in Boston

Bring up Boston , and everyone within earshot starts playing the word association game. Red Sox. Harvard. Cheers. The Boston Tea Party. Everyone knows the city for something. It’s no secret that Boston’s also a music city. After all, it’s had more time than most American cities to cultivate a music scene. Yet in light of the Massachusetts capital’s many celebrated institutions, it’s easy to forget just how musical Boston really is, from the buskers on Newbury Street to the Berklee kids wearing...

‘The Gentlemen’ Trailer: Matthew McConaughey Has a Story About a Wise Lion and a Young Dragon

Since we’re almost to the end of 2019, it’s time to start looking forward to the movies of 2020. Normally, January is a dumping ground for some pretty bad movies, but one possible bright spot appears to be director Guy Ritchie‘s return to shady crime in London The Gentlemen stars Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Pearson, the overseer of a massive marijuana empire in London. But when word that he might be dropping out of the business gets around, he’s challenged by a young up-and-comer (Henry Goldi...

When Christ Will Come Again: Why Christmas Keeps Us Waiting

This year marks the three hundredth anniversary of one of the most beloved Christmas hymns in the English language: “Joy to the World.” Interestingly, though, its author, Isaac Watts (1674–1748), likely wasn’t thinking of Christmas when he penned it. The hymn first appeared in 1719, when Watts published a collection of hymns, to which he gave the catchy title The Psalms of David: Imitated in the language of the New Testament, and applied to the Christian state and worship. His goal was to b...

Handel's Messiah at the Royal Albert Hall

For those of us who live in a metropolitan bubble, where performances of Handel's Messiah by small professional ensembles are common, it is easy to forget that for many people, Handel's masterpiece remains a large-scale choral work. My own experiences of Messiah include singing the work in a choir of 150 at the Royal Albert Hall, and the venue's tradition of performing the work annually dates back to the 19th century.

Watch J.S. Bach’s “Air on the G String” Played on the Actual Instruments from His Time

There is no wrong way to listen to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. You may prefer the austere, idiosyncratic piano interpretations of Glenn Gould; you may prefer the groundbreaking analog-synthesizer renditions painstakingly recorded by Wendy Carlos (whose early fans included Gould himself); or you may prefer faithful performances using only the instruments extant in the late 17th to mid-18th century period in which Bach lived. In that last case, the San Francisco early-music ensembl...

R.I.P. Raymond Leppard (1927-2019)

‘The light of my life,’ Janet Baker once described him. Raymond Leppard's recordings certainly lit up mine – and continue to do so. From his legendary Monteverdi and Cavalli, all of which still knocks spots off the allegedly ‘authenticke’ competition, to the twentieth century, Leppard’s music-making was above all characterised an unmistakeable zest for and belief in his art, quite without affectation or concomitant regard for fashion. I only heard him twice in the flesh: once as a scho...
