MSO cellist Peter Loran Spurbeck remembered for excellence

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Memphis Symphony Orchestra for 30 years. A highlight of his career was performing with Yo-Yo Ma at a concert celebrating the fifth anniversary of the Germantown Performing Arts Centre in 1998 where they played Vivaldi's "Concerto for Two Cellos." He started with the MSO in 1966 and was widely recognized as a consummate musician who was also well regarded personally by his colleagues. "I always thought of him as a sage," said James Gholson, the recently retired principal clarinetist who joined the symphony in 1972. "He took me under his wing and was a guidepost for me. He was a real mensch." Mr. Spurbeck's son, Sam Spurbeck, said his father had extraordinary concentration and focus. "When he was practicing, he zoned in and never stopped." And he practiced all the time. Ann Spurbeck, his w... (The Commercial Appeal)

Birmingham Conservatoire celebrates composer Claude Debussy - The Birmingham Post

Fri, Feb 17, 2012
Soiree Debussy”, the composer’s songs in performance from students of the Conservatoire’s Vocal and Operatic Department. Just down Broad Street and turn left into Berkley Street to the CBSO Centre, a current Conservatoire Ph.D student (and visiting composition tutor) will be hearing an important premiere of his work given by Birmingham Contemporary Music Group tomorrow evening. ‘Findetotenlieder’ by Sean Clancy comes as the culmination of the young Irish composer’s period as Birmingham Contemporary Music Group/ SAM (Sound and Music) Apprentice Composer in Residence during which he has worked closely with BCMG and the American composer David Lang, as well as studying with Howard Skempton and Joe Cutler at the Conservatoire. There is a huge allusive pun in the title, with resonances of the obvious ‘Kindertotenlieder’, Mahler’s “Songs on the death of children”. But there is more to Clancy’s composition than that, drawn as it is from Gabriel Orozco’s artwork ‘Obit’. Recently exhibited at Tate Modern, ‘Obit’ is an installation based on single lines taken from obituaries published in the New York Times, and hence the multilayers of Clancy’s title as he composes a song which sets these “found objects”. Clancy describes his approach to the creation of ‘Findetotenlieder’: “By intervening upon Orozco’s ‘Obit’ I’m offering an alternative existence for the work, one in which its function moves from a piece of art to be viewed in space, to one which should listened to in time. “A facet of this is that I’ve had to arrange the order of the specific lines that the audience is to hear, so I’ve edited 729 lines of text down to 30 lines and divided them up into six individual sections or verses.” ‘Findetotenlieder’ is also loosely based on th...

Saturday reports of Paterno's death proved premature - Globe and Mail

Tue, Jan 24, 2012
Or those in team sports who will attempt more violent bodychecks and crushing tackles to find their way onto TSN’s SportsCentre or Sportsnet Connected. There is, after all, no need to push the danger zone. Compelling auto races can still be conducted five miles an hour slower. Football tackles can be made with something less than kill-shot kamikaze intensity by simply wrapping up a runner. Hockey checks can simply take the puck from opponents rather that take out their teeth. But in a desensitized society, that safe stuff is so yesterday. From our couches, we demand the adrenalin jolt from a highlight pack – and TV obliges. Burke was a star of ESPN’s X Games and was going to be a TV star as the favourite in her event at the 2014 Winter Olympics. To many, it doesn’t get much better than that. But as Burke discovered, that notoriety comes with a price tag. Moving van Wondering why CBC chose the Anaheim Ducks and Ottawa Senators game on Saturday afternoon over the terrific 4-3 Vancouver Canucks win over the San Jose Sharks played at the same time? Why wouldn’t the Corp. want the game in the larger market and with the Western Conference leaders? Or how about the Boston Canucks-Vancouver instant classic two Saturdays ago? Both were carried on Sportsnet Pacific. Well, Hockey Night in Canada has the rights to 14 Canucks games with the option for one other this season. When the schedule was drawn up, Hockey Night opted for more Saturday night games to fill out its doubleheaders. Why? Probably because you can charge advertisers more for the night games than afternoon games. Canucks general manager Mike Gillis, who’s had his disagreements with Hockey Night in the past, shrugged off the choice. “We have a good partner in Sportsnet,” he told Usual Suspects. “We got a record rating for the Boston game. We have no desire to be Canada’s team. We’ll leave that to Toronto. We belong to Vancouver and B.C.” Nails on blackboard First, why would you have Steven Tyler of Aerosmith butcher the Star-Spangled Banner before the American Football Conference Championship game? Second, why was CBS featuring a guy who’s a star on rival Fox juggernaut, American Idol? And third, see No. 1 above. Just askin’. Finally, bless former NFL referee Mike Pereira, who now works for Fox TV. While everyone covering the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots game for rival CBS missed Pats tight end Rob Gronkowski getting both feet in on an important play in the first half, Pereira immediately jumped on it, saying it should be reviewed. While the video was clear that Gronkowski's catch was good, CBS never said boo even when the replay ran.

Natalie Haynes: London gazes out at the rest of the country – and barely ... - The Independent

Sat, Jan 7, 2012
The gallery has masses of new flats built nearby, which looked completely uninhabited. A London-based art critic asked me if I thought the flats would soon be filled. I said that new-build city-centre blocks seemed to be less popular outside London, and plenty of them stand empty in Birmingham. "Birmingham," she replied. "Is that north or south of Wakefield?" This ignorance is, to my mind, as slappable an offence as not knowing basic mental arithmetic, or how to spell your own name. I half-blame the pernicious rise of satnavs for ensuring that those who can't be bothered need never look at an actual map ever again. It should be a cause of deep shame not to know at least cursory details about where you live, and that extends beyond your own street. Being ignorant of the rest of the country doesn't make you unbearably precious and sophisticated; it just makes you ignorant. And unbearable. The consequence of this map illiteracy is that all too many metropolitans view the country as two places: London, and not-London, as though the 54 million or so people who don't live in the capital are one homogeneous lump who occasionally appear on the news when one of their factories gets closed down. Even the ever-cautious BBC isn't immune to this condition, in spite of its best efforts to deny it. It is a source of occasional mild fury to me that it routinely removes London from the weather forecast. The map will show plenty of valuable and important parts of the country, like Oxford, Coventry, or Ormskirk, but will coyly omit the city where almost eight million people live. I do know where London is, luckily, but the presumption that either everyone does, or that no one needs to know the weather in the capital so long as they know if it's raining in Leamington Spa, is just perverse. But earlier this year, the BBC moved Radio 5 Live to Salford, as part of its strategy to take more programmes to the regions. Instead of being properly grateful for the relocation, licence-fee payers collectively wondered if it was really good value for money to move a rolling news and sport channel 200 miles away from London the year before the Olympics are held in London. And the nation wasn't even appropriately grateful for the jobs in Salford, because not everyone who lives outside London lives in Salford. A few of them live in Birmingham, which has seen most of its BBC output shunted to Bristol. But the arts have been thriving in the regions with new museums and blockbuster exhibitions. So let's hope that Lord Howe and other Mersey-intolerants make it up the M6 in June next year, when Tate Liverpool will be featuring the Turner, Monet, Twombly exhibition, showing beautiful flower paintings which have never been seen in the UK before. No, not even in London. There is a new shrine for bibliophiles The ...

Fitzrovia News 2011 year in review - Fitzrovia News

Wed, Jan 4, 2012
Community groups in Camden and Westminster, we reported, found out how the government’s cuts to local authority funding could affect them. Delegates at conferences were told that fewer community centres will receive funding, and many voluntary organisations will receive no funding at all. Camden will continue to offer annual revenue grants while Westminster have scrapped grants and introduced commissioning. When the Fitzroy river in Queensland, Australia broke its banks and caused huge flooding former Fitzrovia resident Sally Fiber was moved to act. This terrible Australian flood disaster took on new meaning for myself and everyone associated with The Fitzroy Tavern when news came that it was the Fitzroy river in Queensland that had burst its banks. I contacted Peter the manager of The Fitzroy Tavern who straight away agreed to support and help. Connections with Australia and The Fitzroy go back a long way. The News of the World never lets the facts get in the way of a good story While demonstrations against the government’s austerity measures and education cuts continued a group of young people occupied a house in Fitzroy Square, posted a Section 6 notice on the door, and set up a Really Free School. Unknown to the squatters the house belonged to absent owner the film director Guy Ritchie. The media quickly descended on Fitzroy Square and laid siege to the mansion. The News of the World (remember them) got a reporter inside. While some residents joined in the activities of the Really Free School and wrote in support of them, others feared their homes would now be invaded by squatters. Local Liberal Democrat activist Aimery de Malet Roquefort led criticism of the squatters and their supporters: Many hard working and ordinary Fitzrovia residents now fear leaving their properties empty, even to go away at the weekend. Consequently, this sets a very dangerous precedent. Fitzrovia News assistant editor Linus Rees accused Aimery de Malet Roquefort of “hysteria” as the debate crept into the pages of the Camden New Journal. Fitzrovia News editor Mike Pentelow responded by saying that squatting was not unusual in Fitzrovia, and reached for his archives and Apple Mac to deliver two articles on squatting in Fitzrovia: one treatise about a nineteenth-century anarchist school in Fitzroy Square and an historical piece entitled 130 Years of Squatting in Fitzrovia. Later our reputation as Fitzrovia’s newspaper of record was challenged when we forced to publish a retraction and apology after we ran an article about a property developer. Our spring issue w...
