Zwilich’s well-known combination of tonal, melodic music with modes and modern harmonies tossed in for flavor are clearly on display here, but so too is Zuill Bailey’s cello. In fact, except for his second recording of the Bach Cello Suites, issued a few months ago, I can’t recall hearing any other recording by him that so perfectly captures his gorgeous, manicured tone. In fact, judging just by those two recordings, I would go out on a limb and say that his tone has actually grown in richness and depth of sound. He used to sound like Emanuel Feuermann; he now sounds like Mstislav Rostropovich.

YAM was opened by lake highlands residents, Jen & Trey Johnson, with the goal to create a community-based space to help highlight amazing local yoga teachers, artists and musicians. The Bernard Osher Foundation Art, Music and Recreation Center offers material about the visual arts, performing arts, music, sports and recreation. The Center features information on artists, architects, musicians, actors, filmmakers, dancers and other arts professionals and athletes — primarily those who have lived and/or worked in the San Francisco Bay Area. Students studying design, art or music at Assumption have numerous opportunities to explore their creativity and showcase their talents. Our faculty are practicing designers, artists, and musicians, who are eager to guide students both professionally and academically towards a fulfilling career in the arts or beyond.
The cello plays undulating, ambient figures to suggest a whale, then high held notes on the edge of its strings. This is as good a performance as the one by flautist Jan Krzeszowiec, pianist Malgorzata Zarębińska and cellist Marcin Misiak on the Dux label, and I think this recording even has more ambience around the instruments. After the 18th century, speculations upon the intrinsic nature of music became more numerous and profound. The elements necessary for a more comprehensive theory of its function and meaning became discernible. But philosophers whose views have been summarized thus far were not speaking as philosophers of music.
Music in Art
Boethius (c. 480–524), was well suited to the needs of the church; the conservative aspects of that philosophy, with its fear of innovation, were conducive to the maintenance of order. The role of music as accessory to words is nowhere more clearly illustrated than in the history of Christianity, where the primacy of the text has always been emphasized and sometimes, as in Roman Catholic doctrine, made an article of faith. In the varieties of plainchant, melody was used for textual illumination; the configurations of sound took their cue from the words.
Popular and folk music is popular because it frequently has a strong, predictable beat, a catchy melody, or both. Frequently, listeners enjoy a piece of popular music because of its predictability. Even when having never heard the song before, after several verses often a listener can complete a portion of the melody and frequently sing the words because it shares the same musical language with other music in the genre. Music, art concerned with combining vocal or instrumental sounds for beauty of form or emotional expression, usually according to cultural standards of rhythm, melody, and, in most Western music, harmony. Both the simple folk song and the complex electronic composition belong to the same activity, music.
We acknowledge that the historical relationship to the land and territories of these peoples continues to this day. When not performing, Gregory is boldly exploring compositional ideas on piano and drums, following world events, running around Mt. Tolmie, taking Arrow and Oblio on walks, and helping Justine in the garden. Scrap Arts Music is a unique Canadian project honoured to receive invitations to perform across North America and around the world for audiences from all walks of life. Having already recorded Mieczysław Weinberg’s symphonies Nos. 2 & 21 three years ago for Deutsche Grammophon, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla here presents the Third and Seventh Symphonies along with the Flute Concerto No. 1. Although all have already been recorded by others, there are clear indications to me that, if finished, this is going to be the Weinberg Symphony set. Although Russian conductor Semyon Bychkov is considered one of the finest Mahler conductors of the post-Klaus Tennstedt era, he has only recently begun recording his symphonies.
