MOSTLY THEY DON’T KNOW YOU EXIST - GUNTHER SCHULLER 1925 – 2015

1981 saw the birth of WASBE and the occasion of a famous speech by the late Gunther Schuller, orchestral horn player, author, conductor, jazz man, publisher, historian, educationalist, administrator and composer in every genre. Thirty four years ago he addressed the CBDNA Conference in Ann Arbor thus, spelling out the challenge for WASBE, CBDNA and BASBWE.

There are too many fine and/or famous composers that have eluded your grasp thus far. You need more of that kind of international world caliber amongst the composers in your repertory before that world will begin to take you seriously, before a critic rom the New York Times or The New Yorker will look in on what you're doing and look in on festivals such as this. And you must more aggressively pursue that establishment world, with its critics and taste-makers, its foundations and other benefactors, its managers, and its musical leaders. You must reach out now beyond your own seemingly large but actually small world. For they will not come to you; you must go to them. Mostly they don't know you exist.

SUMMER IN ENGLAND

I hope that you are all having a great summer or winter. As I write, in early July, we are having pretty good weather in UK, but soon the cricket starts in earnest, together with the rain, time to listen to some music and seek out some scores; it takes your mind off another humiliation from Australia! As our transatlantic friends would say – GO POMS!

(With apologies to all those who have not the slightest idea what I am writing about)

USA World premiere of Cornet Concerto by Nigel Clarke

Mysteries of the Horizon for cornet and Wind Orchestra was premiered on 23rd May 2015 at St Catherine’s University, St Paul, Minnesota, by Haren Vanhoorne, cornet, with the University of St. Thomas Wind Ensemble conducted by Matthew George. The soloist writes:

Mysteries of the Horizon is based upon four paintings by the Belgian artist René Margritte. This piece has everything that I was expecting for a Cornet Concerto. First of all it’s totally different than any other cornet music I’ve ever heard before but still it shows off all the qualities a cornet has to offer. It’s a real hard one this is, but I think this piece will be the level of playing for the years to come”.

USA NEW DECTET FOR WIND

Former President of CBDNA Eric Rombach-Kendall writes enthusiastically about a dectet for wind:

As you consider repertoire for next year I want to make you aware of a

recent work for 10 winds (pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons,

horns) by Stephen Gryc titled "Six Romances After Mendelssohn". This

is exceptional music based upon the opening of Mendelssohn`s "Scottish

Symphony". It is in one continuous movement about 12 minutes in duration.

Steve recently retired from the Hartt School and you may know of some

of his other wind music (Masquerade, Variations on a Theme of

Prokofiev, Concerto for Winds and Percussion, Evensong)
