    Brilliant Beatles

    There have been many arrangements of Beatles' songs for various kinds of ensembles, so rather than just producing a further medley of Beatles' hits, Peter Kleine Schaars has added a new twist to them with this excellent new work. All You Need Is Love and With a Little Help from my Friends pass by in a swing march, Michelle sounds like a newly composed ballad and When I'm Sixty Four is played in Dixie swing style. A Hard Day's Night is transformed into a funk theme with a samba interlude, Let It Be into a slow march, and Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da in a rock beat. Experience The Beatles as you have never heard them before.

    Renaissance of Wonder - Peter Meechan

    Renaissance of Wonder is a work for solo trumpet and ensemble (consisting of orchestral winds and brass, percussion, piano, 'cello and double bass) commissioned by Ryan Anthony, Gary Ciepluch and the Case Western Reserve University and a consortium of 11 other ensembles and individuals: Gary Ciepluch, OH, Vince DiMartino, KY, Birch Browning, Cleveland State University, OH, Dr. Brendan Caldwell– Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music, OH, William Ciabattari, Lycoming College, Williamsport, PA, John Climer, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, WI, Dr. Jay Gilbert, Doane University: Crete, NE, Galen S. Karriker, University of Akron, OH, Matthew Salvaggio, Hiram College, OH, Frank Tracz, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, David A. Turrill, Muskingum University, OH.Ryan Anthony's battle with Multiple Myeloma has inspired all who have encountered him. The inspiration comes not only from his own, personal, courageous battle with cancer, but through his wider vision of the world he lives in; setting up The Ryan Anthony Foundation that supports his CancerBlows events (which in turn raises money that is donated for improved Cancer treatment and research for all); creating a legacy of music through concerts, recordings and the commissioning of new music for trumpet; or through something as simple, yet strikingly powerful, as his Foundation's tag line "Music = Hope.When first conceiving the composition, I instinctively was drawn to Ryan's ability to make melodic, lyrical, music sing in such a special way, and so the idea of a piece that had its foundation in words, a set of songs based on text, became a natural basis for the work.As we spoke more about the piece, Ryan mentioned the many quotes, words, poems and thoughts that had provided moments of inspiration and solace, which he sent through to me. As I read them certain themes became apparent: steely determination and drive, love of life and family, dreams and hope: no matter what adversity, no matter the pain, there was always a greater goal, a bigger picture. These ideas - especially the idea of a dream - became, almost through necessity, part of the piece.Several of the quotes stood out. Some for me personally, some because they seemed to represent and embody Ryan and all that he is. One such quote (from Merrill Root) became the title:We need a renaissance of Wonder. We need to renew, in our hearts and in our souls, the deathless dream, the eternal poetry, the perennial sense that life is a miracle and magic.From our early conversations, I knew that I wanted the Dylan Thomas poem "Do not go gentle" to be part of this piece. I have always read the poem differently to how it is traditionally interpreted - to me it has always been a lesson about life, and how it should be lived with purpose, making the most of every minute. The work opens up with an unaccompanied setting of the first stanza of the Thomas poem:Do not go gentle into that good night,Old age should burn and rage at close of day;Rage, rage against the dying of the light.As a motor racing fan, another quote Ryan sent me stood out. Mario Andretti's quote "If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough". The music in this second section "you're not going fast enough" strives to use some of that energy, and embody the spirit of Andretti's words – to live on the edge, as that's where life – and music – live also.The third section of the piece, "Hymn: Dreamers of dreams, makers of music" was written (and titled) not only for Ryan, but for his family. Their dream was their family, and of all the families he could have been born in to, it was a family of musicians. Through the Salvation Army Band heritage and church, Ryan would play hymns - and whilst not a traditional hymn, this section pays homage to his beginnings as a trumpet player, and his beginnings in life, as well as his time in Canadian Brass with a setting of the verse for brass quintet.The title has its origins in the Arthur O'Shaughnessy poem "Ode" - but I first came across the opening lines ("We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams") as a child reading the Roald Dahl book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Dahl encompasses everything positive about life, and makes children all over the world believe that anything is possible. Nothing seemed more appropriate for this piece.The fourth passage (Rave at the close of day) recaps the poem and music from the opening, leading to the final section, a dream sequence titled "The deathless dream" (taken from the "renaissance of wonder" quotation). By their very nature dreams are deathless, and in its own way that makes dreams more important than life itself. We all dream, we were all someone's dream, and long after we have all departed this earth, dreams will continue to bring ambition, happiness and - most importantly - hope.Renaissance of Wonder is dedicated to Ryan Anthony, in friendship, inspiration, and wonderment.Pete Meechan, May 2016.

    Requiem Aeternam - Giacomo Puccini - Johan de Meij

    Giacomo Puccini was commissioned to write a second opera after the resounding success of his first, Le Villi. However, the original four-act, grand opera Edgar, to a libretto by Ferdinando Fontana, received a rather lukewarm reception at its premire in La Scala in Milan in 1889 - initially, the work was only performed three times. Of all the planned performances in the subsequent two years, only one took place, in Lucca, Puccini's birthplace. There, the work was well received. Nevertheless, the composer decided to make drastic changes to Edgar the most radical being the reduction of the opera to three acts, as well as altering a few arias, characters and instrumental parts. In its revised form, the work was even less popular than before. The discarded fourth act later provided material for Tosca (the duet Amoro sol' per te), but Puccini never felt the need to defend Edgar - as he did other less fortunate operas, such as La Rondine and Suor Angelica. On a piano excerpt for his female friend Sybil Seligman he even corrupted the title to 'E Dio ti GuARda da quest' opera' (may God preserve you from this opera). This did not prevent Arturo Toscanini performing the Requiem from the third act at Puccini's funeral in Milan Cathedral on 3 December 1924. The Requiem in the third act is being played when the long funeral procession carries the alleged body of Edgar - the confusedyoung man hesitating between the love of the virtuous Fidelia and the exotic Tigrana. The mass hails Edgar as a hero, but a monk claims that he has betrayed his country for a few gold pieces. When the soldiers try to desecrate the body, they discover that the armor contains none. The monk reveals himself as Edgar. He wants to leave with his faithful Fidelia, but the vengeful Tigrana stabs him and kills Fidelia. Edgar grieves over the lifeless body of his beloved, while Tigrana is arrested and the people submerge into prayer.
