AAM Poppea

– briandickie.typepad.com

The Academy of Ancient Music has adorned the London music scene, and more widely around the world, for more than 40 years.  The recent death of its founder Christopher Hogwood reminded us, if necessary, of the huge influence that the AAM has had on the early music movement.  And it was entirely appropriate that Christopher should have been paid tribute at last night's semi-staged performance of Monteverdi's Poppea…

Things Get Crazy In Atlanta

Things Get Crazy In Atlanta

The 10/4/14 edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) published an article by Howard Pousner that includes an exclusive interview with Woodruff Arts Center (WAC) Governing Board Chairman Douglas Hertz. The WAC serves as the 501(c)3 under which the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) conducts business; consequently, even though the ASO maintains its own board of directors and executive committee, it does not ratify labor agreements, does not manage its own budget, and all of the ASO’s executive ranks are WAC employees…

Go, Girl

– davidnice.blogspot.com

Go, GirlPuccini’s La fanciulla del West certainly went for gold on the first night of Richard Jones’s new production for English National Opera. There’s not much I can add to my Arts Desk review, or the BBC Radio 3 Music Matters chat with Tom Service and Alexandra Wilson, about Minnie’s return to the original Americanization of David Belasco’s The Girl of the Golden West…

No such Gluck

– parterre.com

No such GluckMozart tinkered with the Messiah. Mendelssohn adapted choral works by both Handel and Bach. But when Richard Wagner reached into the past and revised Gluck’s Iphigénie en Aulide, he went beyond the accepted boundaries of tinkering and more or less created a new work that’s fomented aesthetic debates ever since…

Cameron’s Berlin organ crash

– www.artsjournal.com/slippeddisc

Cameron’s Berlin organ crashFrom a correspondent at the Philharmonie:
Cameron Carpenter opened the organ season of the Berlin Philharmonie for the third year in a row under the title of “organist in residence”. The hall was nearly full for his all Bach program. At the end of the first work on the second half (Bach’s Fantasia and Fugue in C Minor BWV 537), a very loud note continued to sound in the Philharmonie’s Schuke organ (ostensibly newly refurbished), causing Carpenter to leave the stage after accepting the applause…

Die schweigsame Frau broadcast from the Bayerische StaatsoperContrary to appearances, not a Herheim production This one is short-notice: the Bayerische Staatsoper’s free internet video stream series continues today with Strauss’s Die schweigsame Frau, starting at 6:00 pm Munich time (noon on the US East Coast). This opera, dating from 1935 with a libretto by the currently trendy Stefan Zweig, is rarely produced (I’ve never seen it) and not available on DVD…

MonteverdiL'incoronazione di Poppea, BarbicanRobert Howarth conducted The Academy of Ancient Music in a performance of Monteverdi L’incoronazione di Poppea at the Barbican Hall.  Claire Seymour writes in Opera Today:”Set in the reign of Nero, it depicts the irresistible power and tragic pathos of human love, as the passion of Nero and Poppea ruthlessly sweeps aside all hindrances and finds ultimate fulfilment in the Queen’s coronation…
