In today’s classical news, composer Max Richter calls for a greater appreciation of Britain’s classical music heritage.  Philip Glass, soon to turn 80, discusses his career and his relationship with minimalism.  Design Week explores the story behind the London Symphony Orchestra’s new identity, and London-based start-up, Jukedeck, explains how it composes music without a composer, using artificial intelligence. In Germany the Elbphilharmonie’s soundproofing is put to the test by German rock band Einstürzende Neubauten.

Britain must embrace its classical heritage

Jukedeck – at the cutting edge?

Jukedeck is one of a growing number of companies using artificial intelligence to compose music. Their computers tap tools like artificial neural networks, modeled on the brain, that allow the machines to learn by doing, rather as a child does. So far, at least, these businesses do not seem to be causing much anxiety among musicians.

Auch dieses Jahr konnten Besucher der Frankfurter Buchmesse fünf Tage lang viele neue Ideen, Bücher und Trends kennen lernen. Vom 14. bis zum 18. Oktober konnten Interessierte und Handelnde über Geschichten aus aller Welt staunen und zugleich auch ihr persönliches internationales Netzwerk ausbauen. Besonders die neue Hallenordnung und das erneuerte Konzept – „Internationaler, näher, lebendiger“ – hat der Messe zu mehr Internationalität und Dynamik verholfen.

Auf Konferenzen wie „The Markets“ und „Storydrive“ im Business Club, konnten viele wichtige Köpfe der Branche zusammen gebracht werden und man hatte die Gelegenheit, an vielen spannenden Diskussionen teilzunehmen. Der Business Club bietet eine perfekte Mischung aus Arbeits-, Lern- und Meeting-Plätzen. Dort haben Fachbesucher die Möglichkeit exklusive Meetings zu veranstalten und können zudem auch ruhige Arbeitsbereiche und inspirierende Veranstaltungsformate genießen

Die Messe enttäuschte auch dieses Jahr nicht mit ihrem unendlichen Angebot an Themen. Aus den Bereichen Bildung, Wissenschaft sowie Kunst und Design waren Vertreter aus verschiedenen Ländern anzutreffen. Speziell Asien spielte eine wichtige Rolle, da Indonesien dieses Jahr seine vielfältige und bereichernde Kultur als Ehrengast der Buchmesse vorstellen durfte.
In der wohl publikumsstärksten Halle konnte man auch die Gourmet Gallery finden. Hier konnte der Besucher auf eine Reise rund um die Welt des Essens, Trinkens und Genießens gehen und sich neben Weinbüchern und kulinarischen Reiseführern von interessanten Apps sowie Geschenk- und Dekorationsideen inspirieren lassen.

Besonders spannend war der in Halle 3.1. stattfindende Weltempfang, der auch als Zentrum für Politik, Literatur und Übersetzung bekannt ist. Dies ist traditionell der Ort, an dem Podiumsdiskussionen, Gespräche und Lesungen mit internationalen Autoren und Übersetzern stattfinden.
Dieses Koordinationsprojekt der Frankfurter Buchmesse und dem Auswärtigen Amt der Bundesrepublik Deutschland hatte in diesem Jahr einen besonderen Fokus auf das Thema „Grenzverläufe“ gesetzt.

Zudem war die diesjährige Buchmesse auch Gastgeber eines neuen Weltrekords: das längste Bücher-Domino der Welt ist umgefallen! Nach zwölf langen Stunden Arbeit sind 10 200 Titel umgefallen und werden somit in die nächste Ausgabe der „Guinness World Records“ aufgenommen. Am Mittwoch wurde auch an Ort und Stelle die Urkunde von einer Preisrichterin übergeben.

WildKat PR is extremely excited to be working with the Sacconi Quartet, a string quartet who are consistently recognised for communicating with a fresh and imaginative approach. The quartet aims to create truly immersive chamber music experiences that draw the audience into the music in a way never seen or heard before.

The Sacconi Quartet’s latest project, HEARTFELT, does just this. Audience members will hold robotic, wired hearts and will be able to feel the heartbeat of one of the players and so follow the same highs and lows as the musicians during the performance of Beethoven’s String Quartet in A minor Op, 132. It promises to be a uniquely interactive performance. This information will then be transformed in real time into a lighting display that is exclusive to that performance. The robotics and lighting are all made possible by: Silas Adekunle of Reach Robotics, responsible for the initial robotics concept; robotic and system designers, development and manufacturers, Rusty Squid; and interactive lighting designer, Ziggy Jacobs-Wyburn. It will be premiered at the 2015 Spitalfields Festival before being performed at Lichfield International Arts Festival and the Bristol Proms. The idea came about during the inaugural Bristol Proms in 2013 when the Sacconi Quartet spent two days with leaders in the technology and creative fields exploring how to make chamber music more immersive. With Arts Council funding, the result was HEARTFELT. Moments of darkness and a considered lighting design allow the focus of the performance to be on the music itself, with digital technology providing a way for audiences to engage with the music in a direct, physical way. HEARTFELT moves the concert experience beyond sight and sound, introducing tactility into live performance.

Formed in 2001, the Sacconi Quartet are a firmly established and respected ensemble, passionate about repertoire for string quartet. They are the winners of various awards including the Trondheim International String Quartet Competition and Second Prize at the London International String Quartet Competition, alongside two extra prizes at the same event. The Sacconi are the Quartet in Residence at the Royal College of Music and Associate Artists at the Bristol Old Vic. They are also regulars on the UK and European concert scene and have played at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall and the Musikverein in Vienna, to name but a few. Their 2014/15 season includes residencies at the Lichfield Festival and Salisbury International Arts Festival alongside collaborations with Miloš Karadaglić, Ksenija Sidorova and Vertavo Quartet.

Keep up to date with news about the Sacconi Quartet, HEARTFELT and their other upcoming projects through their website, Twitter and Facebook.

Vanessa Benelli Mosell presents a new avant-garde piano which was designed exclusively for Pleyel Piano by the Peugeot Design Lab.
The Peugeot Design Lab launched in 2012 in Paris with the objective to design non-automotive products that change the conceptions of the object. They approached Pleyel Pianos to be their first partners and together they created a piano, which has the potential to revolutionise the world of piano manufacturing. The piano has been designed and built to achieve unprecedented musical quality. Its major innovation is the lowering of the chord mechanism to line up perfectly with the keyboard. The pianist can hear the sound of the instrument with incomparable precision. And, at the same time, the audience can see the pianist playing from every conceivable angle.

Watch the videos of Vanessa playing on the piano below:

The Bamberg Symphony has launched their new corporate design including a new logo, season brochure, website and mission statement ‘extraordinary city. extraordinary orchestra.’ Having redesigned and extended the orchestra’s concert hall in 2008, the Hamburg agency peter schmidt, belliero & zandée were tasked with the development of a new logo for the orchestra.

International orchestras and ensembles are finding new ways to present and re-invent themselves in the fast-changing music industry. The Bamberg Symphony is a prime example for a strong international music brand with a long history and a modern outlook. Working with Peter Schmidt reinforces the orchestra’s profile and brand. The new logo is based on the shape of musical instruments and represents the uniqueness of the extraordinary orchestra that is the Bamberg Symphony.

The Drum magazine selected the logo design to compete in their Creative Showcase. The winner of the competition will be featured in the next issue of the magazine. All contenders will be presented as part of a gallery display at The Drum Live event on Wednesday 9 July 2014 in London, UK.

Bamberg Symphony reveals 2014/15 concert season

On their annual press conference the Bamberg Symphony not only revealed their plans for the next concert season but also the brand-new design of their logo and re-launch of their website. The Hamburg studio Peter Schmidt, Belliero & Zandée, long-standing partners of the orchestra, designed the new logo and season brochure. The top-class orchestra from Bamberg – a town with UNESCO World Heritage status – will now be playing under the adequate slogan ‘extraordinary city. extraordinary orchestra.’ The musical programming, too, has some exciting innovations in store for audiences in Bamberg and abroad.

Three internationally renowned artists will take newly created positions in Bamberg: composer and clarinettist Jörg Widmann will be Composer in Residence at Bamberg for the next two years; Principal Organist Christian Schmitt will showcase the ‘queen of instruments’ in concert performances as well as curating the Organ Series in Bamberg’s Joseph-Keilberth Saal; and pianist Piotr Anderszewski will be featured in Bamberg Symphony’s Artist Portrait, performing in the city several times next season.

Another innovative undertaking is the encore!-project as part of which the Bamberg Symphony commissioned around 40 composers to write encores for the orchestra to serve as a meaningful addition to the orchestral canon. The orchestra aims to not only extend their repertoire – especially when touring – but also to prove that contemporary music can also be entertaining, in the best sense of the term.

The musical theme of the season will be ‘Symphonic Landscapes’, including musical depictions of nature by Claude Debussy, Jean Sibelius, Carl Nielsen, Benjamin Britten, Aaron Copland and Peteris Vasks.

 

Die Bamberger Symphoniker stellen die Konzertsaison 2014/15 vor

Auf ihrer jährlichen Pressekonferenz stellten die Bamberger Symphoniker gestern nicht nur die Konzertsaison 2014/15 vor, sondern enthüllten auch ihren neuen Slogan und ein Neudesign ihres Logos, der Website und der Saisonbroschüre. Das Hamburger Studio Peter Schmidt, Belliero & Zandée, die schon zuvor mit dem Orchester zusammen gebarbeitet haben, ist für das innovative, moderne Design verantwortlich. Außerdem sind die Bamberger nun unter dem Motto ‚extraordinary city. extraordinary orchestra.’ unterwegs – ein passender Leitsatz für das Spitzenorchester aus der Weltkulturerbe-Stadt. Doch auch musikalisch haben die Bamberger Symphoniker einige Neuerungen für ihr Publikum vor Ort und auf Tournee in Planung.

Drei international renommierte Künstlerpersönlichkeiten werden in der Saison 2014/2015 neue Rollen im Orchesterleben der Bamberger übernehmen: Komponist und Klarinettist Jörg Widmann wird das Orchester zwei Jahre lang als Composer in Residence mit seinen bedeutendsten Werken begleiten; Pianist Piotr Anderszewski wird als Portrait-Künstler mehrmals in der kommenden Saison zu erleben sein; und Principal Organist Christian Schmitt, der sich selbst musizierend und als Kurator der Orgelreihe um die „Königin der Instrumente“ im Bamberger Joseph-Keilberth-Saal kümmern wird.

Das encore!-Projekt ist eine weitere Neuheit, für das das Orchester bei rund 40 Komponisten Zugaben in Auftrag gegeben hat. Damit möchten die Bamberger Symphoniker in den nächsten Jahren nicht nur ihr Repertoire – vor allem auch für Tourneen – erweitern, sondern zudem den Beweis antreten, dass zeitgenössische Musik im besten Sinne auch unterhaltend sein kann.

Den programmatischen Schwerpunkt bilden Werke unter dem Motto Symphonische Landschaften: tönende Naturschilderungen u.a. von Claude Debussy, Jean Sibelius, Carl Nielsen, Benjamin Britten, Aaron Copland oder Pēteris Vasks.photo
