The Artist as Genius

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2015 at 7:00 pm

The notion of the 'artist as genius' has been present in society for many centuries though it remains a challenge to define. What comprises artistic genius? Where did the concept originate? Why do we choose to elevate only certain composers to this status? These and many more questions will be explored in this discussion.

Elegance and Function in Classical Form

TUESDAY, MARCH 8, 2016 at 7:00 pm

The ‘Classical’ period in music occurring in the late 18th century, epitomizes the use of economical means to achieve a range of expression. During this time, a vast amount of music was written with a synthesis of common musical principles of harmonic progression, melody, rhythm, and form. There was rarely extraneous or ‘extra’ musical terms employed to achieve this elegant balance of form and expression. Through a limited process of what I like to call ‘reverse’ engineering, we will explore some musical examples to further our understanding of the Classical period.

Classical Meets Jazz: Third Stream Music

TUESDAY, APRIL 19, 2016 at 7:00 pm

What is Third Stream Music? A term coined by Gunther Schuller at a talk he gave in 1956 at Brandeis University, Third Stream is "a new genre of music located about halfway between jazz and classical music." In Schuller's view, this new genre was created to combat purists in both the jazz world and the classical world. To play Third Stream music, one had to be proficient in both. Schuller created the Third Stream Department at New England Conservatory along with Ran Blake. Our lecturer, Jerry Sabatini, was a graduate of the Third Stream program (now Contemporary Improvisation) and studied with Blake. Jerry will explore some of the myths and misconceptions about Third Stream Music, bringing new understanding to this synthesis of composed and improvised music.
