Our esteemed guest, Jim Olcott, is someone whose work I've long admired. He's the retired professor of trumpet at Miami University of Ohio, the founder of Triplo Press, and the musical director of the Twin Cities Trumpet Ensemble. His extensive background in trumpet music promised an enriching conversation.In this episode, we touched on several fascinating topics:The Intersection of Music and Life: Jim provided his balanced and insightful views on how music should weave into our lives.Changing Perspectives with Age: We discussed how our viewpoints and priorities evolve as we grow older.The Essence of Performance: I was curious about Jim's thoughts on the purpose behind performing - whether it's to inspire, to enrich, or something else entirely.For those interested in diving deeper into Jim's world, our show notes at trumpetdynamics.com/olcott, which contain links to some of his recent recordings. Jim candidly admitted that he might not be at the peak of his playing abilities compared to his younger years. However, I assured you, dear listener, that his performance remains outstanding, reflecting the nuanced reality of aging in the arts.This episode is a beautiful blend of personal stories, professional insights, and even some music for you listening pleasure at the very end. With my wife Sana adding adding a few of her thoughts in the middle, it's the perfect way to get your mind focused on making some great music!This is more than just a podcast episode; it's a journey through the realms of trumpet music, teaching, and the art of living a life deeply intertwined with music.A few highlights from this episode:Twin Cities' Musical Opportunities: The episode begins with a discussion at 05:00 about the benefits of moving to the Twin Cities, highlighting the abundant playing opportunities and the community's generous spirit in music.Passion for Playing and Teaching: At 09:50, there's a reflection on the joy of playing, teaching, and the aspiration to inspire others, as well as the importance of camaraderie among musicians.Age and Its Effects on Musicians: At 15:00, the conversation turns to how aging inevitably affects musicians differently, impacting their physical abilities.The Orchestra as an Instrument: A unique perspective is shared at 16:45, where the orchestra is described as an instrument in itself, offering a collective musical experience.Visualizing Music: At 19:45, the technique of visualizing dramatic scenes to enhance musical performance is discussed.Inspiring vs. Enriching Audiences: Ronald Romm's teachings on the profound difference between inspiring and enriching audiences are explored at 22:15.Self-Concept in Musicians: A deep dive into the complex nature of self-concept among musicians occurs at 28:40, emphasizing how it's shaped by perceptions rather than reality.Maurice Andre's Lessons on Trumpet Playing: At 34:35, lessons from Maurice Andre highlight the distinction between impressive and elegant trumpet playing.Triplo Press's Founding and Publication Process: The founding of Triplo Press and the criteria for vetting new pieces for publication are discussed at 39:30.The Book of Life: At 47:45, there's a philosophical exploration of the four essential actions to be included in the 'Book of Life.'Learning from William Vacchiano:...

SynopsisOn today's date in 2006, the Minnesota Orchestra did something quite unusual: it gave a public concert consisting of nine works that had never been performed by a major orchestra, all written by young composers at the start of their careers. The new pieces had been workshopped and rehearsed the previous week as part of the Orchestra's annual Composers Institute for promising new works by promising new composers. The public concert was billed as “Future Classics,” suggesting that though the pieces were new, they would have staying power.One of the works on the program that chilly December night in Minneapolis was selected as the audience's favorite, and has also gone on to be programmed again by not only the Minnesota Orchestra, but others around the world. The work was by a Pennsylvania-born composer named Missy Mazzoli titled These Worlds In Us. Dedicated to her father, it ruminates on his service in the Vietnam War. Blogging after its 2006 performance in Minneapolis, Mazzoli wrote: “Participating in the [Composer] Institute was the single most important thing I have ever done as a composer, not only for the performance but also for the long love affair with the orchestra this week has inspired.”Music Played in Today's ProgramMissy Mizzoli (b. 1980) – These Worlds in Us (Arctic Philharmonic; Tim Weiss, cond.)

On a research trip to Auschwitz, my next guest discovered a one-page fragment of a musical composition titled “Futile Regrets”. It's quite well known that inmates performed music both for the SS and in the open air in the camp, but the works would have been chosen carefully to reflect the politics of the camp. So to discover a personal composition allowed for a very powerful insight into the emotions of an inmate at the concentration camp. Leo Geyer is a composer and conductor who had been commissioned to write a piece in memory of Sir Martin Gilbert, a British holocaust expert, and so he decided to complete this unsigned work.Leo Geyer joined Sean on the show today...

“Gear is meant to be destroyed in the line of duty,” laughs Ruban Nielson. “I realize I prefer to see my equipment all dinged up rather than sitting perfect in my basement—that's a dorky thing to do.”That doesn't mean Nielson doesn't care about his sound. He noted in a 2015 interview with PG that he spends countless hours in his basement tinkering on breadboard circuits and swapping out components, trying to maximize a pedal for his needs. “I like the idea that instead of buying your sound, you're building your sound,” he said.Over the course of 14 years, five albums, and thousands of touring miles, Nielsen has been custom-fabricating his guitar voice. But as we all know, the quest is never-ending, like trying to catch the horizon. After all, isn't it the journey, not the destination, that matters?“I used to be too much of a savage to care about a clean boost or headroom,” says Nielson. “‘Just give me a distortion pedal already!' But now I'm exploring the intricacies, subtleties, and nuances of guitar.”Ahead of Unknown Mortal Orchestra's headlining performance at Nashville's Brooklyn Bowl, Ruban Nielson welcomed PG's Chris Kies onstage to explore his current sonic lab. Nielson covers his two space-age guitars (and what inspired them), explains how he convinced Benson to put a Monarch inside a vintage solid-state Yamaha, and details the pedals—including a few of his own designs—that extract a kaleidoscope of moods.Brought to you by D'Addario.
SynopsisUtah came to the stage of Avery Fisher Hall in New York City, musically speaking, on this date in 1989, when the Orchestra of St. Luke's premiered Utah Symphony, by American composer John Duffy. His Symphony No. 1 was commissioned by Gibbs Smith, the president of the Utah chapter of the Sierra Club to draw attention to the endangered and pristine wilderness lands of that state.Duffy knew this region firsthand. “I began sketching the symphony while hiking through southeastern Utah in the spring of 1988,” he said. “The landscape astounded me: Dramatic contrasts of light and shadow ... violent changes in weather ... expansive vistas. Here in the ancient Indian ruins, canyons, cathedral-like Mesas and fantastical slabs of rock is a spiritual presence and aesthetic wonder of pure, majestic, humbling wilderness.”Duffy is perhaps best known for writing the score to the 9-hour PBS documentary series Heritage: Civilization and the Jews. He was born in the Bronx and studied with Aaron Copland and Henry Cowell.In addition to composing over 300 works, in 1974, Duffy founded Meet the Composer, an organization dedicated to the creation, performance and recording of music by American composers.Music Played in Today's ProgramJohn Duffy (1926-2015) Symphony No. 1 (Utah); Milwaukee Symphony; Zdenek Macal, cond.

It is fair to say that Ant took one look at me this week and took pity. I must have looked a little more world-weary than normal because, in an instant, he abandoned any hope of a meaningful conversation about Friends from the Orchestra (for that had been the intention). Instead he let me ramble a bit, and as is often the case, as we dropped the needle into an alternative groove we discovered a whole other melody to explore - the artist as an older man.So for #185 we talk about my voice, how I have become a creature of habit when I am on the road, and what it is like when I go on an adventure in search of a tech upgrade.We will of course get back to the album chat, but it will be a bit further down the road because we have a special guest joining us for #186.

SynopsisOn today's date in 1805, Beethoven's opera, Leonore, had its premiere at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna, after many postponements due to getting the opera's libretto approved by government censors and the orchestral parts copied in time. There was also the little matter of the Austrian capital being occupied by French troops as Napoleon was sweeping across Europe.The cream of Viennese society had fled by the time Napoleon arrived, so the skimpy audience for the premiere performance of Beethoven's opera included a good number of French soldiers. What they made of Beethoven's opera, which tells the story of a woman rescuing her husband from a political prison, is anybody's guess.As usual, the Viennese critics were not impressed. One wrote, “There are no new ideas in the solos, and they are mostly too long. The choruses are ineffectual and one, which indicates the joy of prisoners over the sensation of fresh air, miscarries completely!”After several revisions and the eventual departure of the French, even the critics came to accept Beethoven's opera — retitled Fidelio — and in particular the “Prisoners' Chorus,” as one of Beethoven's most moving creations.Music Played in Today's ProgramLudwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) Overture and Prisoner's Chorus, from Fidelio; Dresden Opera Chorus and Orchestra; Bernard Haitink, cond.

Eve Risser, a talented performer, composer, and arranger from France, is the founder of The Red Desert Orchestra. This ensemble comprises nine skilled European musicians and was founded by Risser herself.The group focuses on two main programs: Kogoba Basigui and Eurythmia. Kogoba Basigui originated from collaborating with seven (now six) Malian musicians based in Bamako (Kaladjula Band). In comparison, Eurythmia involves the collaboration of the Red Desert Orchestra with three Burkinabe musicians residing in France.Within this framework, Eve Risser showcases her skills and talent by fusing European orchestral sounds, free jazz, and the vibrant musical heritage of Mali to guide you through a spiritual journey inspired by her work with Nainy Diabaté.Our chat covered numerous fascinating facets of the Red Desert Orchestra. We started with Eve's reflections on the JazzFest performance, her connection to African and Malian music, and the challenges of managing a music project that bridges African and French influences, both musically and sociologically. To finish, Eve shared insights into her significant sources of inspiration drawn from Malian music.Meeting Eve was a wonderful opportunity to explore a powerful ensemble with the primary goal of positively impacting the world. Take pleasure in listening!

The episode is known for its emotional depth and captivating storytelling, making it a standout in the series. We conclude our evening with the soothing sounds of the Nat King Cole Trio from 1947.

SynopsisOn today's date in 1904, the Washington Post's headline read, “Hiawatha Tonight: Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's masterpiece to be sung at Convention Center.”The 29-year-old British composer, on his first visit to America, was to conduct the 200 members of the Coleridge-Taylor Choral Society of Washington D.C., accompanied by the Marine Band orchestra.So who was this British composer and what had he done to inspire an American chorus to name itself after him?Coleridge-Taylor was born in 1875 to an African father from Sierra Leone and an English mother. Showing remarkable musical talent, he studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London and rapidly established himself as a major choral composer with a trilogy of oratorios, all based on Longfellow's epic poem Hiawatha, that became wildly popular in England, but the 1904 concert in Washington was the first time all three had been performed on the same concert.The Coleridge-Taylor Choral Society was America's first African-American concert choir. Attending the Washington performance were many members of the federal government and distinguished members of both Black and white society.Music Played in Today's ProgramSamuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) Hiawatha's Departure; Welsh National Opera Chorus and Orchestra; Kenneth Alwyn, cond.

SynopsisToday's date marks the birthdate in 1928 of Italian composer Ennio Morricone, famous for more than 400 scores he wrote for films and TV.If you're a fan, you already know that he wrote the music for a series of spaghetti western movies like the 1964 classic A Fistful of Dollars, starring Clint Eastwood as a taciturn, sun-burnt, cigar-chomping gunman.If you're an oboist, you've probably played Morricone's haunting Gabriel's Oboe at weddings or funerals. It's a melody originally heard in his soundtrack to the1986 film The Mission.But in a 2006 interview for Dazed magazine, Morricone revealed some things even his fans might not have known: He collected bars of hotel soap as a hobby. And if he hadn't become a composer, he would have liked to have been a professional chess player.He also offered a bit of wise advice when asked about scores that were not successes: “A long time ago, I really loved a film that I was working on and I became too involved. That was kind of unbalanced. It made me realize that you can't love things too much if you want them to work.”Music Played in Today's ProgramEnnio Morricone (1928 - 2020) Gabriel's Oboe, fr “The Mission”; Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia; Ennio Morricone, cond.

Throughout the history of Western Classical Music, folk music has imprinted itself as an invaluable resource for composers from all over the world. In fact, it's easier to make a list of composers who never used folk music in their compositions than it is to make a list of the composers who did! This tradition began long before the 20th century, but the work of composers like Bartok and a resurgence in the influence of nationalist music sparked a massive increase in composers using folk music throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. Bartok is thought of as the king of using folk music, as he was essentially the worlds first ethnomusicologist. But Stravinsky, who used dozens of uncredited folk tunes in his Rite of Spring, as well as Bernstein, Copland, Gershwin, Grainger, Vaughan Williams, Szymanowski, Dvorak, and so many others embraced folk music as an integral source for their music. This was in stark contrast to the second Viennese school composers like Schoenberg, Berg and Webern, and post World War II composers like Stockhausen, Boulez, and others who deliberately turned their backs on folk music. One composer who straddled both worlds during their lifetime was the Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski, a brilliant composer whose career started out in the folk music realm, though not entirely by choice, and ended up in music of aleatory, a kind of controlled chaos! One of his first major works, the Concerto for Orchestra is the topic for today's show, and it is heavily influenced by folk music from start to finish. It is a piece also inspired and might even be a bit of an homage to the great Bela Bartok and his own Concerto for Orchestra, which was written just ten years earlier. Lutoslawski, if you're not familiar with him, is one of those composers that once you learn about him, you can't get enough of him. I'll take you through this brilliant and utterly unique piece today from start to finish. Join us!
