What the music industry needs to do with the classical renaissance
The Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We're currently seeing a melding of genres and a breaking of boundaries across the music world. This recent trend — listeners moving to the avant garde after they start demanding more from the mainstream — has long been acknowledged within pop. In recent years, mainstream pop artists have even started adopting aspects of the avant garde in their search for fresh output: It's a dialogue that has benefited artists, labels and listeners alike.

Andrew Lloyd Webber on 'Love Never Dies,' 'The Phantom Of The Opera' sequel 20 years in the making
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Andrew Lloyd Webber has been working on a sequel to his iconic show, "The Phantom of the Opera," for more than 20 years. But the process has not been without its challenges. Early work on the production fell apart in the 1990s. After seeing a documentary about Coney Island, Webber decided to move the opera there, picking up the project again in 2006. In 2007, production was delayed further when Lloyd Webber's kitten Otto climbed onto his digital piano and deleted the score. More

More than a haircut
Arts Journal Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As written by Greg Sandow, "After I taught my class about branding — using an Apple-gadget charger and some chocolate — one of my students gave a branding example: Lang Lang's haircut. You know it's him as soon as you see his hair. And a few commenters here decried branding as shallow, surface stuff. But remember that the chocolates — with their varied shapes and varied-color wrapping — look different because they're different inside. And that's what branding ought to be about: what you are inside." More

On May 15, 1946, an unknown singer named Camilla Williams took the stage at City Center in New York City as Cio-Cio-San, the doomed heroine of Puccini's "Madama Butterfly."

From classical to hip-hop: Why Beethoven still inspires me
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As written by Drumma Boy, "Growing up in the urban decay of South Memphis, Tenn., I was always aware that my musical journey was destined to be one of depth and contradictions — and I loved the possibilities. My mother was a professional opera singer and my father was the first chair clarinet for forty years in the Memphis Symphony Orchestra — the first African-American to hold that position. Even my extended family were no strangers to clefs and staffs; my grandmother was a piano teacher and my aunt played the violin and taught music classes at NYU." More
