Extractions: On the Aisle On January 9, 2001, Carnegie Hall held its annual press conference to announce the coming 2001-2002 season. The luncheon event was attended by more journalists than usual, since it was the first time the media had access to Carnegie Hall personnel in the wake of the sudden resignation of executive director Franz Xavier Ohnesorg. In a prepared statement, Ohnesorg wrote: "Although it is too early to summarize my experience at Carnegie Hall since my appointment in January 1999, I am proud to say that the upcoming 2001-2002 season reflects the highest calibre of artistic programming." The good news is that next year's musical season (the first and last year that Ohnesorg programmed) is more star-studded than ever, with an abundance of interesting programming. Commissions and world premieres include new works by John Adams, Krzysztof Penderecki, William Bolcom, Marc-André Dalbavie, Francis Thorne, Tod Machover, and Philip Glass, whose Symphony No. 6, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall and the Bruckner Orchestra, Linz in honor of his 65th birthday, will be performed by the American Composers Orchestra.

Extractions: NEW YORK (AP) - He was late for his piano recital at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but Louis Lortie had a good excuse. He just performed on the other side of town at Avery Fisher Hall with the New York Philharmonic, filling in at the last minute for an ailing superstar. West Side, East Side, it was the 45-year-old Canadian pianist's night. And when his nearly two hour doubleheader program was over Thursday night, he still had the strength for two encores, much to the delight of the Met audience. "The hell with his stamina. The beauty," said Susan Rose, an influential classical music patron and newfound Lortie fan. It all began when Martha Argerich informed the Philharmonic that she had bronchitis and would not be able to travel to New York. She cancelled, and Lortie was asked to fill in. "They called me as I just got off a plane from Europe," Lortie said in an interview in Central Park a few hours before Thursday's performances. "I was preparing another concert with a violinist whom I had not met for a long time. So we only had 24 hours. So that meant I had to prepare those violin sonatas with him and the Schumann also, which I had not played for three years." Before committing himself to the San Francisco Symphony, he tracked down the score to make sure he could do it.

Extractions: Some years ago, pianist Maurizio Pollini, known in part for his commitment to the music of our time, brought to New York's Lincoln Center a program of Karlheinz Stockhausens Klavierstücke and Beethovens Diabelli Variations . The hall sold out completely on the strength of the artists name. After Pollini came on stage in his shirtsleeves and proceeded to use arms and elbows, as well as fingers, to produce Stockhausens dissonant sound clusters, fully a third of the audience walked out during the performancemuttering loudly in disgust, not bothering to disguise their contempt for exposure to such sacrilege contrary to the expected concert experience. This past February, pianist Garrick Ohlsson brought to Carnegie Hall a program including two of John Adams's works, China Gates and American Berserk , the latter commissioned by the hall and written specifically for Ohlsson. They were rapturously received, with Adams being called to the stage to share in an extended standing ovation. These two events highlight the dichotomy of much new music currently composed and performed. The late English critic Ernest Newman offered a basic analogy reflecting the polar distance between the various camps of human perception: In all ages there has been an inability on the part of the Aristotelian and Platonian, the cat and the dog, the Brahmsian and the Wagnerian, the slow coach and the fast coach, to see things from the others point of view. Until relatively recently, Philadelphia could not boast of its own stimulating and widely discussed new-music debates, witnessing passionate arguments over the merits of this or that contemporary composition. For its part, Relâche has commissioned six works under this seasons Future Sounds series, featuring performances followed by post-concert Come Throw a Chair sessions refereed by artistic director Thaddeus Squirelively give-and-take sessions untouched by the stiff arm of dogma. Concerts titled City Shimmer with Urban Underbelly may be heard on May 31 and June 1.

Extractions: Maurizio Pollini (born January 5 ) is an Italian pianist and conductor Born in Milan , Pollini studied under Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli among others. In 1960 he won the Warsaw Chopin Competition. He is noted for his performances of modern pieces such as Pierre Boulez Piano Sonata No. 2 as well as more traditional repertoire. He has conducted both opera and orchestral music, sometimes leading the orchestra from the keyboard in concertos One of a handful of students of Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli , Pollini exhibits a precise technique and an emotional restraint that are reminiscent of the master. His early performances of Chopin were widely praised and won for him the Warsaw Chopin Competition in 1960 (where Argerich also competed). Excerpts from the competition are available on a CD from LaserLight 15961 and a second CD on Polskie Nagrania. These are cool, assertive, confident, and somewhat aggressive readings. Pollini also has recorded more Chopin in the studio for DG (for example, the Etudes on 413794, Preludes on 413796, and Sonatas on 415346). The earlier sets, in particular the Etudes and Preludes, are best for their clarity and direct approach. The later recordings are heavily edited and less persuasive. Pollini's late Beethoven Sonatas, on DG 429569 and 429570, are very good. His late Schubert Sonatas, D 958, 959, and 960, on DG 427327 and 427326, are deft and restrained and show great insight.

Extractions: Reading: The Sounds of Home On October 20, 1874, from the large bedroom over the south parlor rose the keening wail of newborn Charles Edward Ives, who would register the myriad sounds of home as few people have, and who would never forget them, in the intimacies of the timbres and in their deeper human resonances. Jan Stafford , Charles Ives: A Life With Music Reading: The Musical Spirit of America "Are my ears on wrong?" asked Charles Ives. "I'm the only one, with the exception of Mrs. Ives (and one or two others), who likes any of my music, except perhaps some of the older and more or less conventional things. Why do I like these things? Why do I like to work in this way and get all set up by it, while others only get upset by it and it just makes everybody else mad?" Charles Ives was not interested in massaging the mind of the weak-eared; he did not produce soft easy entertainment. His father used to say. "You won't get a heroic ride to heaven on pretty little sounds." Whether to heaven or helland Ives went in both directionsthere was no room for pretty sounds. George Diehl

Extractions: KLASSIK TIPPS ARCHIV - Rubriken KLAVIER Empfehlungen Juni - September 2001 Leopold Godowsky , polnischer Pianist und Komponist, war zu seiner Zeit ein gefeierter Klaviervirtuose. Er ist bekannt für seine Bearbeitungen der Werke anderer Komponisten (z.B Studien über Chopin Etüden ), aber auch mit seinen eigenen Klavierwerken konnte er sich Ansehen erwerben. Das komplette " Triakontameron ", einer dreißigteiligen Folge von "Stimmungsbildern und Szenen im 3er Takt", die der weltberühmte Pianist und Komponist im Jahr 1920, als Abgesang auf den Wiener Walzer, komponierte, sind jetzt erstmalig auf CD erschienen. Percy Grainger war Schüler von Busoni, befreundet mit E. Grieg und wirkte als Pianist und Dirigent. Die neue CD mit Klavierstücken aus seiner Jugend zeigt einen Komponisten im Alter zwischen 10 und 20 Jahren, der bereits gekonnt Präludien Bachs adaptierte, eigenständige Stücke und Volksliedbearbeitungen schuf. Das klingt in einer gewissen Weise wie Unterhaltungsmusik ansehen, das dafür aber auf hohen Niveau. Robert Schumann hat wie kein anderer Komponist hat den Geist der Romantik am Klavier zum Ausdruck gebracht. Schumanns
