New Thinking: Diverse Classical Music

Arts & Ideas

Widening the repertoire of classical music comes under the spotlight in today's Free Thinking conversation as New Generation Thinker Christienna Fryar speaks to researchers uncovering music that has been left out of the canon. Ahead of concerts featuring their work, she hears about the stories of three composers: the 18th-century French polymath Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the Japanese trailblazer Kikuko Kanai and the prolific African-American composer Julia Perry. Christopher Dingle, a Professor of Music at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, is studying the music of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799). Born in Guadeloupe to an enslaved mother and a French plantation owner father, Boulogne lived an extraordinary life – as well as being one of the first black colonels in the French Army, he was a master fencer, celebrated violinist and conductor, whose concertos rival his contemporary Mozart in their fiendish virtuosity. Mai Kawabata, from the Royal College of Music, is a musicologist and violinist. She shares the story of Kikuko Kanai (1906-1986), the first female composer in Japan to write a symphony. Kanai made waves in the musical establishment by fusing Japanese melodies with Western-classical influences –her “life mission” was to popularise the folk music of her native Okinawa. Michael Harper, a vocal tutor from the Royal Northern College of Music, is championing the work of Julia Perry (1924-1979). Perry occupied a unique place as a black American composer – female and upper-middle class, she won Guggenheim fellowships to train in Europe. Despite a life cut short by paralysis and illness, her works include 12 symphonies and 3 operas. This research, done in collaboration with the AHRC and Radio 3, will result in special recordings and a concert performed by the BBC Philharmonic broadcasting works by Nathaniel Dett, Margaret Bonds and Joseph Bologne in Afternoon Concert on BBC Radio 3 on Wednesday 2nd February at 2pm and then on BBC Sounds https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001414g And listen out for another episode of the Arts & Ideas podcast featuring the research being done into the classical musicians: Nathaniel Dett, Margaret Bonds, Ali Osman and Isaac Hershow and a further concert. Produced by Amelia Parker If you want more information about the Diverse Composers project you can find that on the website of UK Research and Innovation https://www.ukri.org/news/celebrating-classical-composers-from-diverse-ethnic-backgrounds-2/ If you enjoyed this – there's a playlist called New Research on the Free Thinking website where you can find discussions about everything from conserving fashion and putting it on display in museums to recording the accents found around Manchester, so do dip in. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03zws90

LADANIVA - "Vay Aman" from the 2020 EP Ladaniva on Planete B. Ladaniva is the musical partnership between Armenian singer Jacqueline Baghdasaryan and French multi-instrumentalist Louis Thomas. Founded by the duo in 2019, they went viral in the early days of the pandemic with the release of the video for our Song of the Day, “Vay Aman.” Set in a sunny locale with faces full of joy, it's hard not to smile while watching their effervescent playing. Ladaniva's music takes influences from all around the world, from traditional Balkan music to maloya, jazz and reggae, with strong roots in Armenian folk. It reflects Baghdasaryan's DNA, of Armenian and Belarussian descent while Thomas came from a family of musicians and began to play trumpet at the age of 7. After a jazz course at the conservatory, he traveled with his instruments around Africa and Latin America and got introduced to a long list of musical genres through meetings with traditional musicians. The two fused their backgrounds and styles after meeting in Lille, France, where Baghdasaryan is a vocal teacher at the MusicaLille music school.  Ladaniva played the Netherlands-based non-profit showcase for European artists Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS) this past weekend, where they were also awarded with the esteemed prize of Public Choice Award for the Music Moves Europe Awards.

Synopsis On today's date in 1935, at the Church of Saint François-Xavier in Paris, organist Geneviève de la Salle gave the first complete performance of the three-movement Suite, Op. 5, by the French composer, teacher, and virtuoso organist Maurice Duruflé. If you sing in a choir or are a fan of choral music, you're probably familiar with Duruflé's serene and tranquil “Requiem,” Op. 9, which premiered some 12 years later. Duruflé's Op. 5 premiered in 1935, his Op. 9 in 1947, so you might reasonably conclude the composer was a slow worker – which he was.  He was also a very self-critical perfectionist whose catalog of works is rather small, but exquisitely crafted.  In all, Duruflé's output comprises less than 15 published works, of which seven are for organ. Duruflé's music is firmly embedded in the French tradition of organ composers like César Franck and Louis Vierne, and orchestral composers like Debussy, Ravel, and Duruflé's own composition teacher, Paul Dukas.  The great French organist Marie-Claire Alain, when asked to describe Duruflé's music, replied "it is a perfectly honest art… He was not an innovator but a traditionalist… Duruflé evolved and amplified the old traditions, making them his own."  Music Played in Today's Program Maurice Durufle (1902-1986) — Organ Suite, Op. 5 (Todd Wilson, o (Schudi organ at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Dallas, Texas)) Delos 3047 On This Day Births 1752 - Italian composer Muzio Clementi, in Rome; 1878 - English composer Rutland Boughton, in Aylesbury; Deaths 1837 - Irish composer John Field, age 54, in Moscow (Julian date: Jan.11); 1908 - American composer and pianist Edward MacDowell, age 47, in New York; 1981 - American composer Samuel Barber, age 70, in New York; Premieres 1724 - Bach: Sacred Cantata No. 73 ("Herr, wie du willst, so schicks mit mir") performed on the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany as part of Bach's first annual Sacred Cantata cycle in Leipzig (1723/24); 1729 - Bach: Sacred Cantata No. 156 ("Ich steh mit einem Fuss im Grabe") probably performed in Leipzig on the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany as part of Bach's fourth annual Sacred Cantata cycle (to texts by Christian Friedrich Henrici, a.k.a. "Picander") during 1728/29; 1895 - MacDowell: Suite No. 2 (":Indian"), at the old Metropolitan Opera House in New York City, by the Boston Symphony, with Emil Paur conducting; On the same program, MacDowell appeared as the soloist in his own Piano Concerto No. 1; 1933 - Bartók: Piano Concerto No. 2, in Frankfurt, with Hans Robaud conducting and the composer as soloist; 1936 - Chavez: "Sinfonia India," on a radio broadcast by the Columbia Symphony, conducted by the composer; 1948 - Diamond: Symphony No. 4, by the Boston Symphony, Leonard Bernstein conducting; 1963 - Peter Mennin: Symphony No. 7, by the Cleveland Orchestra, George Szell conducting; 1973 - Elliott Carter: String Quartet No. 3, in New York City, by the Juilliard String Quartet; This work won the Pulitzer Prize for music in that year (This was Carter's second Pulitzer Prize); 1999 - Thea Musgrave: "Three Women," in San Francisco, by the Women's Philharmonic, A. Hsu conducting; Others 1894 - Czech composer Antonin Dvorák presents a concert of African-American choral music at Madison Square Concert Hall in New York, using an all-black choir, comprised chiefly of members of the St. Philip's Colored Choir; On the program was the premiere performance of Dvorák's own arrangement of Stephen Foster's "Old Folks at Home," which featured vocal soloists Sissierette Jones and Harry T. Burleigh; 1943 - Duke Ellington and his orchestra present their first concert at Carngie Hall in New York, presenting the "official" premiere of Ellington's "Black, Brown and Beige" Suite (This work had received its world premiere at a trial performance the preceding day at Rye High School in Rye, New York).

French philosopher René Descartes's famous phrase 'cogito ergo sum' - I think, therefore, I 'am; resonates with every thinking and reasoning mind. And it's thinking that makes us analyse and bring our reflexive and contemplative skills to the fore. This in turn draws us so much closer to what we consider true, that we would even prove any conflicting view to our version of truth, wrong. And it is this exposure with the opposing ideas when a person indulges in arguments. But knowing when to stop arguing is what determines wisdom from verbose. Arguments, are what make us never stop thinking, and thus, form a part of our most  relationships. Especially the most intimate ones that bind us in matrimony. And the key to win such arguments is wit. Urdu poet, Ghaus 'Khwah Makhwah' Hyderabadi's nazm, 'Biwi Aur Patloon', is probably a good example if wit in argument.  Tune in as we explore the theme and of argument or 'bahas' through not only satire and romance but also tragedy in Urdu poetry.

The iconic Mister A's is being sold (don't worry, it's not going anywhere, and this is a good story). Last week, we talked with Bertrand Hug—the restaurateur of restaurateurs, the don of dining and longtime steward of the rooftop restaurant—about why he chose to sell to his right-hand man. Today on the podcast, we have the man himself, Ryan Thorson. Ryan earned this (and paid for it). The SDSU grad got his first job at Buster's Beach House in Seaport Village, then landed a low-level managers job at Mister A's and just dedicated his life to it. Worked 100-hour weeks at times. He rose through the ranks over 11 years, becoming Director of Operations. He and Hug developed a father-son relationship, and, when Hug decided it was time to let go and focus on his original baby—the world=class French restaurant Mille Fleurs in Rancho Santa Fe—he turned down offers for more money and entrusted Mister A's to his young partner and friend. Ryan tells us the whole story—including how he originally got turned down for the job because Bertrand didn't like his facial scruff—and what he plans to do with the San Diego classic when he takes over in March. He's not going nuts with the design, but he's enlisted top designer Mauricio Courturier, who designed this place. In “Hot Plates,” things get a little wild. Takashi Endo is opening another Menya Ultra Ramen in UTC, and we all give our answer about which is the superior soup: ramen or pho. We talk about Shake Shack opening in Carlsbad and I for sure am going to get driven out of Southern California in a hailstorm of fire because I admit I prefer it to our own better-burger legend (sacrilege). The Pink Lady—La Valencia Hotel–is renovating their famed Mediterranean Room and adding a new patio concept to celebrate its 95th birthday. Temaki Bar is going into Encinitas, a handroll place from Clique Hospitality (Lionfish, Serea, Joya Organic Kitchen) and sustainable seafood chef, JoJo Ruiz… And 3R Brewing—a Native American-owned craft beer from the Rincon Reservation—just opened in Ocean Beach. For “Two People, Fifty Bucks,” Troy was reminded how much he loves the vegan food at Cafe Gratitude, especially that butternut squash dip with focaccia. Ryan wastes zero time in declaring his love for everyone's favorite tequila-and-mole hideaway, Cantina Mayahuel.

With NFL playoff game temperatures dipping well below zero, the Flems break down the weird football and fan tradition of happily freezing to death - sometimes, literally, as you'll learn with a classic Ally investigation into the infamous 1967 Ice Bowl in Green Bay. There's also chicken broth, French fry heating lamps for fans, North Pole marathons, frozen beer, Dave's close calls with frostbite, frozen tears in Cleveland and a cold-hearted story about a Buffalo Bills QB.

French and American energy giants TotalEnergies and Chevron are pulling out of Myanmar. They've cited deteriorating human rights in the wake of last year's coup in the country. We find out more from Gareth Leather, who is on the emerging markets team at Capital Economics. Also in the programme, an investment of more than $400 million by the mining firm Rio Tinto on a potential lithium venture in Serbia appears to have come to nothing. The BBC's Guy Delaunay explains why. After the British culture secretary warned that the way the BBC is funded may be coming to an end in the next few years, the BBC's Rob Young explores the way public service broadcasters are funded around the world. Plus, the singer Adele has been forced to cancel a series of gigs, or residency, in Las Vegas at the last minute. Mark Mulligan of entertainment analysis company MIDiA Research tells us about the attraction to artists of the residency format.

Entertaining land investment talk. I'm Stephen Jack Butala. Jill K DeWit: And I'm Jill DeWit, broadcasting from the valley of the sun. Steven Jack Butala: Today's Jack Thursday. And I'm going to talk about traunching your land deals. Jill thinks for some reason, this is some highfalutin concept, but I'm not sure. I don't think I agree. It's pretty simple, actually. Buy a bunch of property. Jill K DeWit: I wonder how many people are Googling this exact phrase right now. What do I want to do this week? I want to traunch my land deals. This is good. Steven Jack Butala: Traunching is used. It's a French word. Meaning- Jill K DeWit: I know. Steven Jack Butala: Separate and gather, or it's not just separate. Jill K DeWit: I always thought it was more, I thought it was grouping them together more than that. Steven Jack Butala: Yeah. That's a little bit. The American use of the word, especially in finance, is a little bit different than the strict translation. I researched all this before I went [crosstalk 00:00:53] Jill K DeWit: Well, good, because like you're making me need to do the research. That's the whole point. If we have a show that I got to actually, excuse me, I need to Google this for a moment. [crosstalk 00:01:01] Make sure I'm right. Steven Jack Butala: You've heard people in the stock market or in finance markets traunching their portfolio and you know- Jill K DeWit: Bundling them up, right? Steven Jack Butala: Yeah. Yeah. Jill K DeWit: That's how I think of it like- Steven Jack Butala: Buying and selling in traunches, which means not just taking a certain asset and selling it. It means bundling it up, putting the good with the bad. We heard the word traunch a lot in 2010 where they were taking home loans. Jill K DeWit: Houses. Steven Jack Butala: Yeah. AAA rated home loans and bundling them with non-performing C minus loans. Jill K DeWit: Putting a few crappy ones in with the good ones and just kind of sliding them under the rug that way. Steven Jack Butala: Yeah. Well not under the rug, but here's a portfolio. Take it or leave it. There's some golden here and there's some terrible stuff. Jill K DeWit: Got it. Steven Jack Butala: Like every garage sale. Let's say. Jill K DeWit: Thank you for not associating it with dating. Steven Jack Butala: Oh my God. You could buy- Jill K DeWit: Or marriage. Steven Jack Butala: Buy partners in traunches. I think that's a felony. Jill K DeWit: Yeah, oh my gosh. Wow. I didn't think we were going there, but it is Jack Thursday. He can do whatever he wants. Steven Jack Butala: Before we get into it. Let's take a question posted by one of our members on the landinvestors.com online community. It's free. Don't forget to subscribe on the Land Academy YouTube channel and comment on the shows you like. Jill K DeWit: Here's what's going on right now for some of you, "Mommy." This is from the back seat, "Mommy. What did Mr. Jack mean when he said that?" Steven Jack Butala: I hope that's not true. Jill K DeWit: Exactly. Somewhere. Steven Jack Butala: Poor kids.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Penny and Sparrow over Zoom video!  “Olly olly oxen free!” If you ever played hide-and-go-seek or capture the flag growing up, odds are good that you've shouted these words into the hot summer night, beckoning your unseen comrades out of their hiding places in exchange for safe passage home. But what does it actually mean? The origins of the phrase are murky, with variations existing in multiple languages over the centuries. Some trace it back to the German “alle, alle, auch sind frei,” which roughly translates to “all, all, also are free.” Others attribute it to a mix of French and Dutch, which would yield the similar “go, go, come in free.” For Andy Baxter and Kyle Jahnke—the musical duo better known as Penny and Sparrow—the phrase spoke to something far deeper than a children's game, though, something profoundly existential.Written and recorded over the past year, Olly Olly is a work of liberation and revelation, a full-throated embrace of the self from a band that's committed to leaving no stone unturned in their tireless quest for actualization. The songs here are fearless and introspective, embracing growth and change as they reckon with desire, intimacy, doubt, and regret, and the arrangements are similarly bold and thoughtful, augmenting the duo's rich, hypnotic brand of chamber folk with electronic flourishes and R&B grooves. Baxter and Jahnke produced Olly Olly themselves, working on their own without an outside collaborator for the first time, and the result is the purest, most authentic act of artistic self-expression the pair have ever achieved.   Stuck at home with nothing but time on his hands, Jahnke leaned into bedroom pop, R&B, and hip-hop for sonic inspiration, pushing his boundaries in an attempt to forge new sounds that went against expectations. There was a certain amount of contrarianism at play (tell him you can't write a folk song over a trap beat and he'd write you a folk song over a trap beat), but more than that, Jahnke was engaged in a conscious attempt to rewrite his own neural pathways, to step out of the invisible boxes that had bound him for much of his life. Baxter took a similar approach within his lyrics, which he worked on at home in Florence, AL, responding to Jahnke's melodic cues by writing with new tones and modes of voice. In the end, that's what Olly Olly is all about: finding new ways to use language and melody as acts of emancipation and self-discovery.We want to hear from you!

Parcels - "Somethinggreater" from the 2021 album Day/Night on Because Music. Australia-born, Berlin-based five-piece Parcels make groovy electropop, blending funk and disco in intoxicating fashion. Their 2018 self-titled debut blew up with a little help from Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, better known as Daft Punk, who produced the album's lead single “Overnight.” But the assist from one of the world's most popular disco duos hasn't led Parcels to rest on their laurels. With their latest album, Day/Night, the band created an ambitious double album that plays out like a sweeping movie soundtrack. Our Song of the Day, “Somethinggreater,” is the album's lead single and proves that the Aussies picked up a thing or two from their French friends. Slinky and sexy, the bouncey track has a natural groove that ebbs between subdued emotional moments and energetic dancefloor bursts. The band had this to say bout the song: “In early 2020, Noah showed us a demo that contained a chorus line that had us all particularly excited. It had an anthem-like quality and felt really fitting to what we were channelling through the albums. We jammed out the track in our rehearsal room in Berlin and fell upon the chorus groove all at once, a special instantaneousness that seems to be only achieved in a live jam, and as a result we proceeded to play it for hours. Anatole began to cry with the tears that usually come from when you are lost in a night-club, alas, we felt we had hit something really special. With the song's clear message of search and discovery, it felt absolutely right to record ‘Somethinggreater' first upon entering La Frette studios.” The song comes with a video directed by Carmen Crommelin.

This week, Alan, Quinta and Scott were joined by Lawfare's new director of digital media, Claudia Swain! They talked through some of the week's biggest national security news, including:“It's Not the Motion in the OSHA, It's the Size of Your Popular Mandate.” The Supreme Court has invalidated the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's vaccination-or-test mandate for major employers. What will the Court's decision mean for the Biden administration efforts to combat COVID?“We Met On OKstupid.” The Justice Department has indicted leaders of the Oath Keepers movement for seditious conspiracy, based in part on social media communications in which they actively recruited and planned for the violence of Jan. 6. What does the indictment tell us about the risk of domestic violent extremism?“Law & Order: DVE.” The Justice Department's National Security Division just created a new unit committed to prosecuting domestic terrorism. What kind of lasting impact might this move have in preventing another Jan. 6?For object lessons, Alan drew our attention to a story of rampant abuse of power being investigated by the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency's inspector general: allegations that an employee printed off over 100 copies of their wedding program on a government computer. Quinta made the minor suggestion that the FBI should not Tweet about MLK Day, which commemorates the life of a man it unlawfully surveilled and tried to push toward suicide. Scott strongly celebrated the new show "We Are Lady Parts" about a female Muslim punk band in East London, as well as the album of original music its creators have released. And Claudia drew our attention to a story of international significance: the deregulation of French dressing, after a decades-long regulatory fight.

National Geographic photographer Tomas van Houtryve documents the layered history and revival of one of the world's most enduring landmarks, Notre-Dame de Paris. A reflection of the city and part of its soul, the cathedral has been ravaged, reimagined, and resurrected over the course of eight centuries. Badly damaged by fire in 2019, Notre-Dame is again in the hands of skilled artisans who are braving dizzying heights and dangerous conditions to bring the cathedral back to life. For more information on this episode, visit nationalgeographic.com/overheard.  Want more? Take a look at more than a century of photos of Notre Dame from National Geographic's archive, including some very curious-looking gargoyles.  The late art historian Andrew Tallon had a vision to map Notre-Dame de Paris with lasers. His work has aided the reconstruction of the cathedral.  Also explore: Victor Hugo is a literary icon with deep connections throughout French culture. See the source of his inspirations here.  Painter Henri Matisse could see Notre Dame from his window on Quai Saint-Michel; it was the subject of many of his paintings and sketches. But many other artists had their own angle on the cathedral. See 16 of them here.
