BBC Radio 1’s Jaguar spearheads FUTURE1000 program offering music biz opportunities for 1000 young women

A new, free national training programme to encourage more young women into the music industry by equipping under-18s with the skills they need to start their careers, has been launched. Future1000 is led and presented by BBC Radio 1 DJ, broadcaster and journalist Jaguar in partnership with in-school music education platform FutureDJs.

The free initiative aims to redress the gender imbalance in professional music. Launching at a time when the pandemic has further restricted opportunities in an industry with already-limited accessibility to women, Future1000 will focus on establishing equity at a grassroots level by providing 1,000 girls and gender minorities in the UK with access to the necessary training, tools and mentorship for success within the industry.

Schubertiade sagt Konzerte bis August ab

Die Schubertiade hat weitere Konzertzyklen abgesagt. Sowohl die Konzerte Ende Mai in Hohenems als auch die Veranstaltungen Ende Juli in Schwarzenberg werden nicht stattfinden. Grund für die Absage sind fehlende Möglichkeiten für eine vernünftig planbare Durchführung, so Geschäftsführer Gerd Nachbauer.

Geplant waren unter anderem Konzerte mit Kit Armstrong, Daniel Müller-Schott, Christian Gerhaher, Dejan Lazic, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Paul Lewis, Matthias Görne und Leif Ove Andsnes.

The Schubertiade has cancelled all of its further concert programmes. Both the concerts at the end of May in Hohenems and the events at the end of July in Schwarzenberg will not take place as planned. The reasons for the cancellation is based on the lack of options available for a reasonably planned performance, said Managing Director Gerd Nachbauer.

Among others, concerts with Kit Armstrong, Daniel Müller-Schott, Christian Gerhaher, Dejan Lazic, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Paul Lewis, Matthias Görne and Leif Ove Andsnes were scheduled and are now cancelled.

L’Opéra de Munich lance son propre label discographique

Sont d’ores et déjà annoncées une Symphonie n° 7 de Mahler et “Die tote Stadt” de Korngold avec Jonas Kaufmann. Alors que l’Opéra de Paris a décidé de lancer sa propre plateforme de vidéo à la demande, le Bayerische Staatsoper (Opéra d’État de Bavière), qui diffuse déjà en streaming sur Staatsoper.tv, fonde quant à lui son propre label discographique, nommé tout simplement Bayerische Staatsoper Recordings — en abrégé : BSORec.

« La création d’un label maison est la suite logique de notre stratégie de longue date d’indépendance vis-à-vis des maisons de disques ou des chaînes de télévision », explique Nikolaus Bachler, directeur général de l’institution.

Munich Opera launches its own record label

Already announced are Mahler’s Symphony No. 7 and Korngold’s “Die tote Stadt” with Jonas Kaufmann. While the Paris Opera has decided to launch its own video-on-demand platform, the Bayerische Staatsoper (Bavarian State Opera), which already streams on Staatsoper.tv, is founding its own record label, simply called Bayerische Staatsoper Recordings – abbreviated as BSORec.

“The creation of an in-house label is the logical continuation of our long-standing strategy of independence from record companies or television channels,” explains Nikolaus Bachler, the institution’s managing director.
