Sex, betrayal, suicide: is Madama Butterfly too sordid to stage today?

Puccini’s Orientalist story of the sexual exploitation of an Asian woman may seem repulsive in the #metoo era – but we shouldn’t flinch from a masterpiece’s savagery, says the director of Glyndebourne’s latest production.

Finanzplanung, Sponsoren-Akquise, Marketingmaßnahmen und Buchungen von Spielstätten – all das sind Herausforderungen, an denen auch junge Menschen wachsen können.

WildKat PR is excited to introduce our newest client, Marina Baranova, a Ukrainian pianist and composer living in Germany.

“She sat down at the piano and played. With her right hand she held a melody, harmonically supported from the left. She was three and couldn’t read music” remembered Marinas Parents, both piano teachers.

Since her very first contact with a piano at the age of 3, Marina has won a long list of international prizes all over Europe. Her debut album Marina Baranova Plays Schumann was enthusiastically applauded by the press, who hailed her as an “excellent interpreter of Schumann”. She is also active as a composer – her last CD Firebird, recorded together with Murat Coşkun, contains only original compositions for oriental percussion and piano.

Marina is currently working on her next CD Hypersuites. The programme will be based on the graceful music of the Baroque period providing a foundation for the brilliant improvisations and deeply personal reinterpretations which Marina specialises in.

We are very much looking forward to supporting Marina in promoting this new album. Keep checking the WildKat PR blog for updates as well as Marina Baranova’s website.

Last night’s Noted Talk ‘Publishing Across Genres’ was a captivating event hosted by WildKatPR and Sane & Able. The evening featured three animated experts: Janis Susskind, David McGinnis and Martine Halban, who spoke on their knowledge and experience in Publishing. Throughout the evening, the speakers talked on the role of publishing in the worlds of music and the written word. They also contributed top advice in the area of self-publishing, which was applicable in a variety of ways for the eager attendees.

Many perspectives across the topics covered were highly valuable as light was shed on everything from how our speakers select what to publish, to the affect of new technologies on the industry. The importance of understanding the business was emphasised by Janis Susskind who explained the behind the scenes grass roots provisions needed for success: “For a year I typed index cards and memorized names, and learned the business from the ground up.” David McGinnis highlighted the validity of a gradual rise to the top: “Play some gigs, have some fans. Get some people throwing their underwear at you. Don’t go straight to sync”.

Martine Halban commented on the changes that the industry has undergone in the last twenty or so years: “In the 90s, Amazon started and the whole publishing scene changed. Now we are in the era of e-book publishing”. Interestingly, what arose is that it seems advanced technology has not merely removed older formats for accessing and listening to music, but more the emphasis has changed for these tools. Janis Susskind illustrates this: “I see more CDs being sold at classical venues. At the beginning we could never get a record company to agree to this”. David McGinnis took this one step further by explaining the potential value of CDs: “The physical disc might become like a piece of novelty merchandise”.

The entire evening was an eye opener into music publishing from professionals who were able to divulge valuable advice. It was an atmospheric evening full to the brim with young professionals and keen students, and the experience was both stimulating and informative with a good insight into the future of music publishing.

Take at look at our next event which will take place on Wednesday October 23rd ‘Noted Talks…Music Money Matters’. You can find this via the noted Event Bright.
