School of Music continues to celebrate 150 years with concert highlighting BU composers – The Daily Free Press https://metawelle.net/school-of-music-continues-to-celebrate-150-years-with-concert-highlighting-bu-composers-the-daily-free-press/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 04:36:45 +0000 https://metawelle.net/school-of-music-continues-to-celebrate-150-years-with-concert-highlighting-bu-composers-the-daily-free-press/

To honor its 150th anniversary, the Boston University School of Music hosted a concert on Saturday highlighting the work of past and present composers with BU roots. The concert was just one of a host of celebrations that took place to commemorate the school.

The composition department of the SoM and the contemporary music ensemble in residence of the BU ALEA III presented the show in the concert hall of the SoM.

The SoM — formerly known as the College of Music — opened in 1872, becoming the nation’s first institution to award degrees in music, according to the CFA website. Later the Schools of Music, Drama and Visual Arts were merged into what is now known as the College of Fine Arts.

“The College of Music was one of the founding colleges of the University in 1872,” said CFA music professor Richard Cornell. “[SoM] has this history of innovation and tradition at the same time.

For the concert, ALEA III commissioned a piece called “Origins” from SoM alum Thomas Weaver, which featured an array of faculty, students, and guest artists.

“Boston’s classical music community is quite extensive and we always work at each other,” Cornell said. “So you can expect to see all kinds of musicians on this stage.”

With the exception of Weaver, all of the other pieces in the program are by deceased SoM teachers, including John Goodman, Joyce Mekeel, Gardner Read, Norman Dello Joio, Lukas Foss, and ALEA III founder Theodore Antoniou.

“All of these composers represent different aspects of our 20th-century history,” Cornell said.

SoM keynote speaker Rodney Lister said he wanted the concert to also feature famous composers who are still alive and working at SoM.

“There’s an emphasis…on celebrating the composers who taught here who died, but there’s not the same emphasis on doing anything for the composers who are actually alive and working here,” Lister said.

But Lister also said he recognizes there is a risk in playing music by living composers.

“If you say you play something from Beethoven or Mozart or Haydn… the music is bound to be great,” Lister said. “You say you’re playing something by a living composer that you never know…people tend to like what they know.”

ALEA III Treasurer Sam Headrick, who is SoM Emeritus Associate Professor, said Antoniou “lives for new music”. Antoniou was SoM professor of composition and director of ALEA III.

“He supported young composers of all types of aesthetics,” Headrick said. “He was playing all the different styles, which is so healthy because what we want is for every young artist to be what they are, not to have to do an academically correct style, so to speak. .”

ALEA III continues that spirit by letting “each composer be their own personality,” Headrick said.

“[Antoniou] passed away now, but he formed a band, he wants it to continue, so he has an endowment,” Headrick said. “And so his students and colleagues keep this group alive.”

For Headrick, who first came to BU aged 29 and left last year after 41, the gig was a memory of his time at BU.

“It’s my professional life,” Headrick said. “I know all the composers except one.”

Headrick said his four decades at BU were a privilege.

“I do what I love to do. I teach ambitious, hard-working young students who have a passion for music like me,” Headrick said. “The intention is to see this student as your colleague in the future.”

The SoM has rich ties to musical institutions in Boston, Cornell said, and alumni tend to stick around and become part of the city’s music scene.

“​​If you attend a concert by one of the city bands and any of the other orchestras or choirs that use orchestras or opera companies, you will see our students,” Cornell said. “They will either be in the pit or on stage.”

Gal Costa, central figure of the Brazilian song movement Tropicália, dies at 77 https://metawelle.net/gal-costa-central-figure-of-the-brazilian-song-movement-tropicalia-dies-at-77/ Sat, 12 Nov 2022 01:47:00 +0000 https://metawelle.net/gal-costa-central-figure-of-the-brazilian-song-movement-tropicalia-dies-at-77/

Gal Costa, one of Brazil’s most revered singers and a central figure in the Tropicália counterculture art movement that emerged during the repressive military dictatorship from 1964 to 1985, died Nov. 9 in São Paulo. She was 77 years old.

His publicist announced the death but gave no cause.

Until 1969, the most prominent artists of the Tropicália movement – ​​which sought to undermine military rule through art and peaceful disobedience rather than the leftist guerrilla activity of the time – were the songwriters -performers Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil. When they fled the country, under threat of prison or worse the regime, Ms. Costa ensured that their music remained in circulation through evocative performances.

In addition, Ms. Costa was a leading exponent of música popular brasileira, which blended regional folk music with samba, jazz and rock. She never considered herself a traditional, or even politically motivated, protest singer until recent years when she spoke out against Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. But her choice of lyrically allegorical songs, which she performed with her crystal-clear mezzo soprano voice and virtuoso violão (acoustic guitar) playing, often targeted political corruption and the Brazilian junta.

Usually outrageously and often scantily dressed as a young woman, her long black hair often braided in curls or an Afro, Ms Costa was a child of the sexual revolution who arrived in Brazil in the 1960s with rock music from the United States. and England. She became known as a muse of desbunde, an anti-military but also anti-guerrilla maverick of the times..

Ms Costa was first inspired by bossa nova musician João Gilberto and later by Veloso and Gil. But she was also influenced by American rockers, soul men and blues masters – including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and James Brown – and later (through her son, Gabriel) hip-hop.

His best-known songs include “Babe” and “Coraçao Vagabundo” (Vagabond Heart) – both written by Veloso; “Watercolor from Brazil” a 1939 composition by Ary Barroso popularized in English as “Brazil” during the big band era; and “London London”, written by Veloso during his exile in the British capital. She sang the last one, as he had written it, in English.

His most controversial album was “India” (1973), less for its allegorical lyrics than for its cover image of a woman’s torso with a red thong-like bikini. The army banned the album cover and ordered Ms Costa’s record company to sell it only inside an opaque blue plastic sleeve. It was the best unintended publicity an artist could wish for. Brazilians lined up at record stores to buy her, and Ms. Costa became an unwitting feminist icon.

One of the most beautiful songs from the album “Índia” – with the collaboration of Gil, as producer, and Verdoso – was Milho Verde (“Green Corn”), a traditional song sung by enslaved cornfield workers under Portuguese colonial rule and echoing the songs of the enslaved cotton pickers of North America.

Maria de Graça Costa Penna Burgos was born in Salvador, the capital of the state of Bahia, northeast Brazil, on September 26, 1945. Her parents separated after her mother discovered that her husband had a second family. secret.

After leaving school early to help her mother, Ms Costa found work at a local record store and started singing on the latest bossa nova releases. This brought her to the attention of clients such as Veloso, Gil and a young singer called Maria Bethânia. They soon formed a musical group calling themselves Doces Bárbaros (Sweet Barbarians).

She recorded her first solo single in 1965 as Maria da Graça but quickly settled on Gal Costa as her stage name. His breakthrough album, “Domingo” (1967), also featured Veloso.

Ms Costa said she did not have the financial means to go into exile like Veloso. Instead, in 1971 she started a new stage show Tropicália called Fa-Tal, directed by her friend Waly Salomão, in which she performed with sexy clothes and brightly painted lips.

As her fame grew, she continued her hippie-hedonistic lifestyle in Rio, where she and her friends sang and played on a stretch of Ipanema Beach, dubbed the “Dunes of Gal”. In 1985, when she performed at Carnegie Hall for her first performance in the United States, she declared to the New York Times: “I have no intention of conquering the American market. I’m a Brazilian singer and I’m a bit too lazy to leave Brazil.

In 2011, Ms. Costa received a Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Survivors include his son, Gabriel.

At the heart of Ms. Costa’s music was a free spirit. “Any kind of diversity, I’m an advocate,” she once told an interviewer. “People have to respect differences. The other doesn’t have to be like you. You have to have the freedom to be, to exist, whatever you might do. It’s implicit in me, in my way of life. ‘be.

Måneskin will appear at Eurovision 2023 if it is ‘free’ https://metawelle.net/maneskin-will-appear-at-eurovision-2023-if-it-is-free/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 17:49:31 +0000 https://metawelle.net/maneskin-will-appear-at-eurovision-2023-if-it-is-free/

Maneskin said they hoped to participate Eurovision 2023 if they are “free”.

The Italian group won the competition two years ago and back to this year’s event to give their single “Supermodel” its live debut.

Speaking in a new interview, frontman Damiano David said NME as part of the In Conversation series, that they would like to return to competition which will take place in Liverpool next year and says he will always hold a special place in their hearts.

“We were never afraid of the Eurovision label,” admits David. “For us, Eurovision was never the goal – it was just a way to achieve our goals. A lot of artists make huge mistakes when they go to these TV shows with just one song. They’re creating an entire image for the TV show, so when it’s over, they have next to nothing to share with the fans. We were lucky because we already had two albums and an EP. Once the show finished, people could listen to something and see that we already had five years of career and touring. It was the sliding door for us.

He adds: “We were never afraid to be ‘a Eurovision artist’ forever. We knew it was going to change our lives. We are happy and we will always remember Eurovision as one of the main milestones in our career.”

The group also discussed their recently announced the third album ‘RUSH!’ in the interview, mentioning in particular the inspiration they drew for the project Radiohead.

Elsewhere, David commented on accusations of censorship surrounding the group’s performance at the MTV VMAs in August.

‘RUSH!’ is the sequel to ‘Teatro D’ira: Vol. I’ and ‘Il Ballo Della Vita’ from 2018 and is set to be released on January 20, 2023. Måneskin will play London’s O2 a few months later on May 8, 2023.
