WildKat PR is thrilled to welcome Inclusive Creativity! The project, based in Northern Ireland, was devised by composer Frank Lyons of Ulster University. It aims to level the playing field in performance and composition for disabled musicians by developing innovative instrumental technology and methodologies that allow for side-by-side performance with professional musicians.

In 2015, three partner organisations (Walled City Music, Drake Music and St. Magnus International Festival) received funding from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to develop a pilot participatory project using ‘inclusive creativity’ as its driving principle. The project brought together musicians and composers to research participant-led routes into collaborative music making. Under the direction of professor Lyons, an ensemble of disabled and non-disabled artists met regularly to improvise and compose music together in Derry/Lononderry. They used assistive music technology (AMT) as well as more conventional musical instruments. This ensemble became Acoustronic.

A performance featuring Acoustronic and partner ensemble the Benyounes Quartet will perform Lyons’s specially-commissioned work ‘NonZeroSum’ and George Crumb’s ‘Black Angels’ at Rich Mix on 5th September.

Olivia Brown, Head of Creative Strategy and Marketing, said: “Inclusive Creativity is an incredibly inspiring project that provides essential opportunities for disabled musicians. Especially with disability often being left out of diversity conversations in the classical industry and beyond, it’s vital that projects like this are championed across the sector and WildKat are delighted to support this pioneering and forward-thinking collaboration.”

The concerts in London and Dublin are kindly supported by PRS for Music’s ‘Breaking Borders’, CGF’s ‘Sharing the Stage’ and the British Council

Today, Bachtrack published its classical music statistics for 2015. Immediately striking, is the lack of women at the top of any of the lists. Most remarkably, the busiest composer category features it’s first female at number 72, with only five on the entire list. How many years will it be until a woman is one of the top 50 or the top ten in this category?

Kristiina Poska, busiest female conductor at no. 72 /nordicartistsmanagement.com

Kristiina Poska Busiest female conductor at no. 72
/nordicartistsmanagement.com

Whilst Covent Garden is the busiest opera house, the top three busiest concert orchestras are in the USA; the only British Orchestra, the London Symphony is at number seven.

Classical composers, remain as ever at the top of the list. Accordingly, Romantic/ Classical music is the most performed throughout the countries surveyed. The exceptions are Sweden where 20th/ 21st century comes out top and the USA where 44% of individual works performed are baroque and 44% are Classical/ Romantic. Germany and Austria are the only countries where over 60% of music performed is Classical/ Romantic, presumably something to do with the fact that the top composers are Mozart, Beethoven, Bach and Brahms.

Anniversaries certainly affect the findings. September 2015 was Arvo Pärt’s 80th birthday; he is number one in the ‘top living composer by event’ category.

Arvo Pärt, most performed contemporary composer event / stage and cinema.com

/ stage and cinema.com

Sibelius and Nielson turned 150 in 2015. Sibelius went up in the list of composers from number 26 to number 9 and Carl Nielson went up from 53rd to 37th. Although works by both men were more frequently performed in 2015 than in 2014, one might have imagined that they would be higher up on the list given the huge anniversaries and the fact that Arvo Pärt is at number one in the living composers list.

The use of composer anniversaries to inform concert programming, does seem a little uncreative but perhaps it could mean that the works of some less famous composers will be celebrated this year. Some of the most notable composers whose 50th and 100th birthdays fall in 2016 include:

William Sterndale Bennett (1816 – 1875)

Ferruccio Busoni (1866 – 1924)

Vladimir Rebikov (1866 – 1920)

Erik Satie (1866 – 1925

Vasily Kalinnikov (1866 – 1901)

Milton Babbitt (1916 – 2011)

Henri Dutilleux (1916 – 2013)

Alberto Ginastera (1916 – 1983)

 

Vasily Kalinnikov’s Symphony no. 1

How great an affect will these anniversaries have on 2016’s classical music statistics?

(Written on January 11, 2016 )

In September at a concert in Turin, lead singer of U2, Bono called for “humanitarian leadership” in response to Europe’s refugee crisis. Whilst Europe’s leaders have been discussing solutions; musicians have also made a concerted effort to raise awareness of the plight of refugees and to give them some pleasure through music.

It was unfortunate that in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris this November, Spanish viol player and conductor Jordi Savall had to make the decision to postpone a concert. He was due to perform at the ‘Calais Together’ event with his ensemble Hespèrion XXI on 17th December at the refugee camp in Calais. His safety and the safety of his musicians couldn’t be guaranteed amid fears of unrest, however the event will take place by the Spring.

The Yehudi Menuhin School is also due to perform for refugees in Calais. On 20th January students and staff will work with volunteers at the ‘Jungle’ to distribute food parcels before performing a concert for around 6,000 refugees. The school hopes that it won’t just be a one off event and that they will return to Calais. The project is very much in line with Menuhin’s vision of the relationship the school should have with the outside world.

Yehudi Menuhin/ Yehudi Menuhin School "The violin, through the serene clarity of its song, helps to keep our bearings in the storm, as a light in the night, a compass in the tempest, it shows us a way to a haven of sincerity and respect."

Yehudi Menuhin/ Yehudi Menuhin School
“The violin, through the serene clarity of its song, helps to keep our bearings in the storm, as a light in the night, a compass in the tempest, it shows us a way to a haven of sincerity and respect.”

In October a demonstration and concert took place in Vienna to show solidarity with refugees in Europe, it featured the German punk band ‘Die Toten Hosen’, ‘Conchita Wurst’ and a speech by Austrian President Heinz Fischer. In London this November, Paloma Faith joined forces with Peace for a concert to raise money for Help Refugees; these are just two concerts among many throughout Europe. Rap singer M.I.A. released a track ‘Borders’, which charts the journey of refugees across Europe and criticises governments for not doing enough.

Perhaps the most extraordinary case of music raising awareness of the refugee crisis, is Syrian rock band Khebez Dawle, who made their journey from Lebanon to Germany fun by performing gigs along the way. Syria offered the group no hope of a career in music so they sold their instruments to pay smugglers to get them across the Mediterranean. Through their music, they aim to tell the stories of desperate migrants looking for refuge.

Khebez Dawle/ Yahoo

These musicians are aware of the power of their music and the hope and comfort it can offer to people with nothing else left. Some of these events have political undertones, whilst some aim to raise awareness of the plight of refugees on a purely humanitarian level. With the Yehudi Menuhin school’s concert in Calais in January and Jordi Savall’s soon to follow, the New Year could bring new hope. We often feel helpless in the face of such crises but whilst governments battle with big decisions, musicians are sharing their music and working according to Yehudi Menhin’s ethos of supporting minority communities.
