  • Culture: Conductor Jenny Wong Explores the (Spiritual) Depth of Bach

    12/08/2017 10:29:39 AM PST · by GoldenState_Rose · 39 replies
    Jenny Wong is the Associate Conductor of the LA Master Chorale. Wong says she’s excited to conduct the six motets by J.S. Bach for many reasons, not the least of which is the incredible depth of the music. “All of us, undoubtedly, who we study Bach’s music, you’re always going to leave it feeling like you can’t study it enough. There’s just so much more to get to know about it. Because Bach’s music there’s such an order to it. And yet, it’s never just because it’s academic. It’s useless to talk about Bach without talking about the reason for...
  • France Mourns Its Favorite Rock Star, Johnny Hallyday

    NPR ^ | December 6, 2017 | Eleanor Beardsley
    The French rock star, who died at 74 of lung cancer at his home outside Paris Wednesday, had a career spanning 57 years. He sold more than 100 million albums, but was little known outside his own country. USA Today once called him "the greatest rock star you never heard of." Retrospectives and tributes have poured in, and France's Prime Minister Edouard Philippe paid tribute to Hallyday in Parliament. "Johnny Hallyday had a special place in our country," he said. "We are all emotional this morning. Every French person has a song that comes to mind when they think of...

    December is here, and, before we get into our cornucopia of Christmas selections, I wanted to mark the anniversary of a non-seasonal song introduced to the world at the Coronet Theatre in New York seventy years ago this month - December 11th 1947. It's still widely known, although allusions to it can be perilous. A couple of years back, making some observations on Britain's "overseas development" budget, Godfrey Bloom, a UKIP member of the European Parliament, found himself in hot water - indeed, a veritable cannibal's cooking pot - when he opined that there's no point wasting taxpayers' money by...

    NY Post ^ | 12/2/2017 | Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein
    Legendary Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine molested an Illinois teenager from the time he was 15 years old, sexual abuse that lasted for years and led the alleged victim to the brink of suicide, according to a police report obtained by The Post. The alleged victim came forward to the Lake Forest, Ill. Police Department in October 2016 to detail the molestation, including times when Levine would masturbate in front of him and kiss his p*n*s, according to the report. The alleged victim informed a former Met Opera board member of the alleged abuse in 2016 and she alerted the...

    107.1 FM - Austin, Texas | 1 December 2017 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    Fellow Freepers, I have posted before and will post again, the music coming over the Spanish-language stations in the United States is largely intolerable in its content. You need to get a fluently bilingual friend to listen to the Norteno-type "country" Mexican music and report what is heard. Just this afternoon, driving home from work, the music coming from a station in Austin, 107.1 FM, was so bad that I wanted to shut the station down immediately. If such music were produced in the English language with the same messaage towards the Spanish-speaking community as they sing out over our...

    The Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons, of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has quickly retracted a remark made to a Telegraph interviewer in which he said that women conductors ‘are not my cup of tea’. In a statement on Friday he said: ‘I come from a generation in which the conducting profession was almost exclusively reserved to men. Even today, many more men than women pursue conducting professionally. ‘But it was undiplomatic, unnecessary and counterproductive for me to point out that I’m not yet accustomed to seeing women on the conducting platform. ‘Every one of my female colleagues and every young...

    Pinegrove have announced that they are “taking some time off” and cancelling their remaining tour dates after frontman Evan Stephens Hall was accused of sexual coercion.

The full details about the accusation are not currently clear. Hall went on to claim that he “absolutely never threatened” the woman in question,...

    The British singer Morrissey defended both Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein in an interview this weekend, claiming their alleged victims knew “exactly” what was going on — and chose to “play along.” “Afterward, they feel embarrassed, or they do not like it,” Morrissey said while speaking to the German news outlet Der Spiegel. SNIP “People know exactly what’s going on,” Morrissey reportedly said after being asked about the movie producer. “And they play along…But if everything went well, and if it had given them a great career, they would not talk about it.” SNIP

    The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) called the concerts "a propaganda gift to Israeli apartheid.” Despite the best efforts of Roger Waters, Brian Eno, Thurston Moore, TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe and other Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) supporters, Nick Cave has played one concert in Tel Aviv and is scheduled to play another tonight. The dates are a continuation of an otherwise-Euro tour, and the Israeli headlines praising Cave are already flooding the internet with joy at the artist’s sanction breakthrough. The prince of darkness appeared at a press conference yesterday to explain...

    Country music singer Mel Tillis, whose six-decade career included hits such as “I Ain’t Never” and “Coca Cola Cowboy” and who never let his stutter get in the way of him becoming a legend, died on Sunday, his publicist confirmed. He was 85. Tillis passed away at Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, Fla., his publicist Don Murry Grubbs said. The music legend is believed to have died from respiratory failure after he never recovered from intestinal issues he has been battling since 2016. He leaves behind his longtime partner, Kathy DeMonaco, his six children and six grandchildren. Tillis recorded...
