music to start saturday

music for late night thursday

(i think we had an idea once, that she’d conduct her own Ariodante show with her orchestra, and sing Polinesso at the same time! She can tour it, with all our fav Ariodantes! and on occasions she can also swap out with Prina for Polinesso! jeah!)

(and we also have candidates for Ginevra and Dalinda!)

Nathalie Stutzmann video stream alert

yaaaaaaay, Nathalie Stutzmann conducted Händel Messiah last night (16/Dec/2017) in Götenborg (with K.Hammarström singing the mezzo part) and it was broadcast live in cinema across entire Sweden! (they really do it right with the broadcast, her Messiah is really something, now i can’t unhear it (the dynamics, am still so sad there was no radio broadcast of it back in 2014 in Paris or in DC in 2015), especially when now listening to other conductors… In any case it is now available for ONE WEEK beginning today here!

relatedly, she also conducted the same piece 2 weeks ago in Oslo, and there will also be a radio broadcast of that on 23/Dec/2017 at 1700GMT here.

Nathalie Stutzmann (and Sara Mingardo) stream alert

Edit: live-stream on youtube here.
Tomorrow, Friday, 1/Dec/2017 , live video stream from Dublin at 1930 GMT, 1430 East coast time, Nathalie Stutzmann conducting the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir and RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra:

(ps- now that i know there is always a stream from Dublin and São Paolo, am hoping soon she’ll also conduct Händel Messiah with Sara Mingardo singing 🙂
and Bach Matthews Passion too!).

background ramblings

It’s been an unsettling time.. One of those moods where one feels realizes (again) being able to go into hiding implies you do have the luxury to do so, while others are being actively oppressed/hurt. On a closer to heart front (i feel a rant coming..), have the patience to see Antonacci portraying this mad woman will you? (time-tag 7m58s). Do you think Antonacci is this woman? is Antonacci mad? Is it that difficult to see an artist’s “realistic” and effective portrayal is a reflection of their craft but not an announcement this is who they are? Isn’t it clear their moving “performance” is not an invitation to freely project and suddenly “identify” with them and think they’re the answer to your life? I find it troublesome some people cannot seem to distinguish between a performance/writing/painting and the artist’s private personal space/life. Actually it must be quite frightening for an artist who has to perform in public, if that is something they suddenly have to worry about, instead of just focussing on their well beings and effective methods to communicate their arts. I think both V.Kasarova and S.Mingardo had in separate interviews (yay, i found S.Mingardo’s insightful Polish interview!!) talking about the needs to “unplug” from the stage, to define the clear line between “online” versus offline. Whatever people “project” on them based on their portrayals… well, it’s fantasy, that is all. there. random rant is over….

Sorry, i’ve been in a mood, blame it on the upcoming (or past already?!) eclipse, and current sad news. The purpose of this post is, actually, to retreat into a little safe place to enjoy this wonderful interview with Nathalie Stutzmann. I think being a female conductor she has through the years, as with E.Haïm, being asked a lot about it… What I like about this one is that it’s much more about her back story. I was hoping it was longer! quite fun to hear about her “incognito” audition for a conductor job 😀 😀 . And she discovered Mozart Mass in C from a cassette tape. Hey, i discovered Beethoven 9th Choral (and my entrance into classical music) from a cassette tape too! 🙂

That was also the time i accidentally found myself in Bergen!! and dragged a whole team to hear the concert :-). There is also this super short interview. What I liked from that was, according to my ears, she puts the “rock” into Bach. Quite fun. At first I wondered if I should check out this interview or not.. and 1 bar into the music, i was hooked! Think i have this whole concert (radio) saved somewhere as well… perhaps it’s time to dig it up while remain a little bit more in hiding away from the real world (as she said). Just a tiny bit more, to recharge.
