Κείμενο υποδοχής

If I had to choose between music, dance or photography, I would choose all three, for I am enchanted with music, thrilled by dance and redeemed by photography!
Αν έπρεπε να διαλέξω ανάμεσα στη μουσική, το χορό και τη φωτογραφία, θα επέλεγα και τις τρεις τέχνες. Η μουσική με μαγεύει, ο χορός με ενθουσιάζει και η φωτογραφία με λυτρώνει!...

Charles Camilleri (1931-2009)

Charles Camilleri
Maybe the Turkish Admiral Piri Reis or Hairedin Barbarosa, did not find Malta and gave the momorable "Malta yiok", which translates to "Malta not found"..we found and recognized a great man of the arts. The composer Charles Camilleri.
 
(Μπορεί ο τούρκος ναύαρχος Πίρι Ρέις (Τούρκικη εκδοχή) ή ο Χαϊρεντίν Μπαρμπαρόσα (Μαλτέζικη εκδοχή), να μη βρήκε τη Μάλτα και να έδωσε τη μνημειώδη απάντηση  στο Σουλτάνο, «Μάλτα γιοκ», που σημαίνει, δεν βρήκα τη Μάλτα, εμείς τη βρήκαμε και γνωρίσαμε, μάλιστα, έναν σπουδαίο άνθρωπο της τέχνης. Τον συνθέτη Sharles Camilleri).

Charles Camilleri (Malta 7 September 1931- Malta 3 January 2009) was one of the few native Maltese composers to have succeeded in making a significant impression in international musical circles. He was largely self-taught, and his ability to draw on diverse cultural traditions and marry them in an eclectic yet highly individual style proved particularly persuasive.

Camilleri was born in Hamrun, Malta in 1931. Despite early musical promise while at the Lyceum High School, he was initially destined for a career in law. However, in 1950, when the family emigrated to Australia, his somewhat unconventional career began in earnest with a brief period as a school teacher. Later on, a stint as a piano player in an ensemble that performed in Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and San Francisco nurtured the inherent nomadic instincts that were to stay with him for the rest of his life.

For five years, from 1954 to 1959, based for the first time in London, he earned his living as a successful light-music arranger, composer and conductor. Here, in addition to his many distinctive film scores, he also created the incidental music for the Strand Theatre's award-winning show Sailor Beware. His next move was to Toronto, where after working for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, he enrolled at the local university to study music.

In 1965, returning once again to England, Camilleri now felt confident enough to focus exclusively on composition. Growing critical acclaim then allowed him the freedom to undertake many fruitful artistic collaborations with the leading performers of the day.

Particularly pivotal in this regard was the organist Gillian Weir, who during the course of 1970 helped to create Missa Mundi, his first major work for the organ. Cogently argued, highly articulate and inspired by the writings of the Jesuit theologian, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, this difficult and demanding five-movement technical tour de force remains an important contribution to the repertoire. Later essays for organ included Invocation to the Creator (1973), Wine of Peace (1976), Morphogenesis (1978), Toccata Britannica (1978) and a Concerto for Organ, Strings and Percussion, first performed by John Scott at the 1983 Three Choirs Festival.

Camilleri's huge corpus of works comfortably exceeds some 300compositions. Although stylistically diverse, they break down into three main creative periods, each of which produced a piano concerto. The first, dating from 1948, is titled "Mediterranean" and reflects an early and highly productive interest in the indigenous folk music of the Maltese archipelago; the second, premiered as part of Expo in Japan in 1970, is headed "Maqam", an Arabic form of extemporisation; the third, "Leningrad", cyclical, austere and somewhat abstract, was first performed in Russia in 1987.

Four years earlier, in 1983, Camilleri had returned home permanently to his creative roots at Naxxar. Here, alongside his still considerable musical output, in 1988, under the aegis of Unesco, he published a book of writings, suitably entitled Mediterranean Music. In 1992, having been at the forefront of the island's cultural life for over half a century, he proved a most appropriate choice as the first Professor of Music at the University of Malta.

Charles Villiers Stanford

Biography 
Sir Charles Villiers Stanford (30 September 1852 – 29 March 1924) was an Irish composer, teacher and conductor. Born to a well-off and highly musical family in Dublin, Stanford was educated at the University of Cambridge before studying music in Leipzig and Berlin. He was instrumental in raising the status of the Cambridge University Musical Society, attracting international stars to perform with it.
While still an undergraduate, Stanford was appointed organist of Trinity College, Cambridge. In 1882, aged 29, he was one of the founding professors of the Royal College of Music, where he taught composition for the rest of his life. From 1887 he was also the professor of music at Cambridge. As a teacher, Stanford was sceptical about modernism, and based his instruction chiefly on classical principles as exemplified in the music of Brahms. Among his pupils were rising composers whose fame went on to surpass his own, such as Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams. As a conductor, Stanford held posts with the Bach Choir and the Leeds triennial music festival.
Stanford composed a substantial number of concert works, including seven symphonies, but his best-remembered pieces are his choral works for church performance, chiefly composed in the Anglican tradition. He was a dedicated composer of opera, but none of his nine completed operas has endured in the general repertory. Some critics regarded Stanford, together with Hubert Parry and Alexander Mackenzie, as responsible for a renaissance in English music. However, after his conspicuous success as a composer in the last two decades of the 19th century, his music was eclipsed in the 20th century by that of Edward Elgar as well as former pupils.

Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 126
The opening of his Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 126 is surely reminiscent of Rachmaninov's Second Concerto which Stanford had conducted at the Leeds Festival, with Rachmaninov himself as soloist, only a few months before he started work on his own composition. The concerto is dedicated to 'Two friends on either side of the Atlantic: Carl Stoeckel of Norfolk, Conn., USA and Robert Finnie McEwen of Bardrochat'. Although completed in July 1911, the concerto was not performed until June 1915 when it was heard at the Festival of American music at Norfolk, Connecticut, whose president was Carl Stoeckel, musical patron and son of the longstanding Professor of Music at Yale Gustave J. Stoeckel. The soloist on that occasion was the London-born pianist Harold Bauer and the conductor the eminent American Arthur Mees. The British premiere had to wait until a concert in Bournemouth in December 1916, while the London premiere,with the young Benno Moiseiwitsch, took place on 29 April 1919 at Queen's Hall to very considerable acclaim.

Stanford did not write an extended cadenza in either of the large-scale concertante works recorded here. Although 'Cadenza' is marked twice in Down among the Dead Men (at the very opening and at the end of Variation VII), both are brief, and in the concerto there is no cadenza at all. The concerto is one of the most romantic by a British composer, the glorious first movement opening with the soloist at first unaccompanied, but soon joined by the horns whose rising motif proves to be a motto that will recur at the end of the concerto. The first subject group is completed by a rising figure in the strings and an upward leaping dotted idea. After this virile start the sudden contrast of the second subject is perfectly judged: the piano sings out a heart-felt theme with a rocking accompaniment in the left hand.

A particularly effective moment occurs during the development in a Molto tranquillo section where the piano is joined by solo cello and two clarinets. The second movement is characterised by chordal piano writing, marked to be played arpeggiando throughout. The serene melody is shortly contrasted in an equally poised middle section. If there are Irish inflections in this work, they are to be found in the repeated notes of this quiet music, which would seem to evoke some distant folksong. The finale starts loud and brash with a stamping dance tune. Two quieter sections follow, the second revisiting the music of the slow movement. With the opening horn call the stamping tune returns and propels the concerto to a vigorous conclusion.

Βιογραφικό
Ο Βεροιώτης πιανίστας γεννήθηκε τον Νοέμβριο του 1982 σε οικογένεια επιστημόνων και πήρε τα πρώτα μαθήματα πιάνου από τον πατέρα του, τον φαρμακοποιό και πιανίστα Γεώργιο Τροχόπουλο, ο οποίος υπήρξε και ο βασικός του καθοδηγητής κατά τα εφηβικά του χρόνια. Από το Σεπτέμβριο του 2000 υπήρξε μαθητής του διάσημου Ρώσου πιανίστα Nikolai Petrov (ο οποίος διέκρινε στον 16-χρονο Παναγιώτη μια “πιανιστική ιδιοφυία”) στο Kρατικό Ωδείο της Μόσχας “Tchaikovsky”, απ’ όπου και αποφοίτησε το 2006.
Με ένα ρεπερτόριο που περιλαμβάνει 15 προγράμματα ρεσιτάλ και 30 κοντσέρτα για πιάνο και ορχήστρα (μεταξύ άλλων και όλα τα κοντσέρτα του Rachmaninov), έχει εμφανιστεί σε διάφορες χώρες όπως Ρωσία, Ιταλία, Γερμανία, Αυστρία, Κροατία, Ρουμανία και ΗΠΑ. Μερικοί από τους μαέστρους με τους οποίους έχει συνεργαστεί, είναι οι Murad Annamamedov, Tomasz Bugaj, Ovidiu Balan, Grigor Palikarov και Octav Calleya.
Κάποιες από τις περασμένες του συμπράξεις με ορχήστρα περιλαμβάνουν το 2ο κοντσέρτο του Brahms με την Φιλαρμονική της πόλης Pazardjik (Βουλγαρία) καθώς και το 3o κοντσέρτο του Prokofiev με τη συμφωνική ορχήστρα του Kissinau (Μολδαβία), το 1ο κοντσέρτο του Liszt με τη δημοτική ορχήστρα Θεσσαλονίκης και το 3o κοντσέρτο του Rachmaninov με τη συμφωνική ορχήστρα της ρωσικής πόλης Yaroslavl. Πιο πρόσφατα εμφανίστηκε ως σολίστ με ορχήστρα στο Ζάγκρεμπ της Κροατίας-μια συναυλία η οποία σήμανε την επίσημη είσοδο της χώρας στο ΝΑΤΟ.
Έχει δώσει ρεσιτάλ σε πολλά διεθνή φεστιβάλ όπως το φεστιβάλ Αθηνών, το φεστιβάλ “Μουσικό Κρεμλίνο” της Μόσχας, το φεστιβάλ Ναυπλίου και το “English Music Festival”, όπου παρουσίασε ένα ρεσιτάλ με έργα του Josef Holbrooke για πρώτη φορά στην πιανιστική ιστορία. Το 2002 επιλέχθηκε να εκπροσωπήσει το 1ο φεστιβάλ Arensky της Μόσχας στο εξωτερικό με συναυλίες στην Ελλάδα και τη Γερμανία, ενώ το 2004, 2005 και 2006 ήταν ένας από τους προσκεκλημένους καλλιτέχνες του διεθνούς φεστιβάλ της Μάλτας.
Η δισκογραφική του δουλειά περιλαμβάνει ήδη 5 CD, το πρώτο από τα οποία περιλαμβάνει την πρώτη παγκόσμια εκτέλεση του κοντσέρτου για πιάνο και ορχήστρα του Pavel Pabst που κυκλοφορεί στην Cameo Classics και έγινε ηχογράφηση του μήνα στο Music Web International.
Το ίδιο περιοδικό χάρισε μια εξαιρετική κριτική στον δίσκο με Ρώσικα έργα για πιάνο που περιλαμβάνουν μεταξύ άλλων τον «Petroushka» του Stravinsky και όλα τα πρελούδια του Rachmaninov (έργο 23), ενώ ο δίσκος του με έργα Holbrooke (αρ.1) έλαβε εξαιρετικές κριτικές ακόμη και από το περιοδικό Gramophone.
Τον Δεκέμβριο του 2011 επιλέχτηκε να πάρει μέρος σε μια συναυλία προς τιμήν του μεγάλου βιρτουόζου Marc-Andre Hamelin -παρουσία του ιδίου στο Μέγαρο Μουσικής της Μόσχας- ως ένα από τα ανερχόμενα αστέρια της “Ρωσικής πιανιστικής σχολής”…

The lost piano concerto of Pavel Pabst
PAVEL PABST: PIANO CONCERTO in B-flat Major (Concert World Premiere Recording). SERGEI RACHMANINOV: PAGANINI RHAPSODY. PETER TCHAIKOVSKY: FANTASY OVERTURE HAMLET. Total playing time:76.24. PANAGIOTIS TROCHOPOULOS (piano) BELARUS STATE ACADEMIC SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA MARIUS STRAVINSKY (conductor). A SUPERB DIGITAL RECORDING. 
In 1885, pianist PAVEL PABST gave the premiere performance of his new Piano Concerto in E-flat major in St Petersburg with the great Anton Rubinstein conducting. The concerto score was lost for 120 years. 
THE LOST CONCERTO was performed in concert, for the first time since its premiere, in April 2005, in Minsk, and in the 150th anniversary year of the birth of PABST, and that public performance is the one presented, unedited, on this CD. PABST's PIANO CONCERTO is a wonderful, romantic three-movement work, lasting 33 minutes. It is full of beautiful tunes. It now takes its rightful place among the great 19th-century concertos on CD with this unique concert recording, and receives stunning debut performances for this digital pure-stereo recording by the brilliant young musicians, pianist PANAGIOTIS TROCHOPOULOS, and British conductor MARIUS STRAVINSKY. Close friends and musical associates of PABST in Moscow, SERGEI RACHMANINOV AND PETER TCHAIKOVSKY, were chosen as the composers for the other works. All the sessions were filmed and a DVD is in the course of preparation. It is planned to be released in April 2009. MUSIC-WEB INTERNATIONAL has graced this CD as RECORD OF THE MONTH with its review of November 22, 2006. "Cameo scores a coup..with this release..it is thoroughly enjoyable and ably played by Panagiotis Trochopoulos..for a live recording, the audience is hardly ever discernable, to the point that the applause at the end comes as a bit of a surprise."

"Mano’s", Jazz tribute to Manos Hadjidakis (Ο Μάνος συναντά την Jazz)

"Mano’s", Jazz tribute to Manos Hadjidakis
A jazz tribute to Manos Hatzidakis, the Camerata Orchestra and the Dimitris Kalantzis Quintet will perform some of the composer’s best-loved compositions in a new jazz idiom. ‘The project developed quite naturally out of our need to perform music which we had loved since we were young, in our own ordinary language: jazz. The essence of Manos’ music is always there, and we always delight in discovering it’, says the outstanding musical talent Dimitris Kalantzis. The original idea is implemented with the aesthetic quality appropriate to an artist of the standing of Manos Hatzidakis, and has the added advantage of opening up to a Greek audience a combination of jazz and classical sounds, through a repertory of music familiar to Greek audiences. At the same time, the international idiom of jazz is the perfect vehicle for bringing the music of great Greek composers to global audiences.Dimitris Kalantzis Quintet and Camerata In a tribute to Manos Hatzidakis on November 21, 2011 - Pallas Theater.

Ο Μάνος Χατζιδάκις συναντά την Jazz
Δημήτρης Καλαντζής (φωτό: ΑΣΜΑΤΑ ΚΑΙ ΜΙΑΣΜΑΤΑ)
ο album “Mano’s”, a jazz tribute to Manos Hadjidakis, πέντε δεξιοτέχνες jazzmen και μια ορχήστρα κλασικής μουσικής ανακαλύπτουν ξανά την τζαζ εκδοχή τού πιο κοσμοπολίτη έλληνα συνθέτη.
Το κουιντέτο του Δημήτρη Καλαντζή (Πατερέλης, Πολυζωγόπουλος, Γεωργιάδης, Δράκος-Κτιστάκης) και η Καμεράτα – Ορχήστρα των φίλων της μουσικήςυπό την διεύθυνση του Μίλτου Λογιάδη, αυτοσχεδιάζουν πάνω σε συνθέσεις του Μάνου Χατζιδάκι σ΄ ένα album 100% Xατζιδάκις και 100% Jazz!
Το αποτέλεσμα; Μια εναργής μουσική συνάντηση που προκύπτει αυθόρμητα μέσα από την ελεύθερη σκέψη και τον αυτοσχεδιασμό, σε πλήρη αρμονία με τον τρόπο δουλειάς και σκέψης του Μ. Χατζιδάκι. Από την υπερβατική διάθεση, με την οποία ο Δημήτρης Καλαντζής κι ο Γιάννης Αντωνόπουλος έσκυψαν πάνω απ’ τις παρτιτούρες αγαπημένων μελωδιών του Μάνου, ώς τη φυσικότητα με την οποία η ευέλικτη ρυθμική βάση του γκρουπ επικοινωνεί με τους γεμάτους χάρη και αρμονία έγχορδους μουσικούς της Καμεράτας, μεταδίδοντάς μας τη χαρά της μουσικής που συμβαίνει, έτσι, απλά...
Όπως άλλωστε προέκυψε και το album. «Απλά, σαν φυσική διαδικασία», όπως εξηγεί ο πιανίστας Δημήτρης Καλαντζής, ο οποίος έκανε και τις οξυδερκείς διασκευές, τη «μετάφραση» της μουσικής του Μάνου. «Προέκυψε από την ανάγκη μας να τραγουδήσουμε τη μουσική αυτή, που χαράχτηκε στις καρδιές μας από μικρά παιδιά, στη δική μας καθομιλουμένη γλώσσα, τη τζαζ. Η ουσία και η διάθεση των μελωδιών του Μάνου είναι πάντα εκεί... Κι εμείς είμαστε κάθε φορά ευτυχείς να τα ανακαλύπτουμε. Ξανά και ξανά...»
Το έργο “Mano’s”, a jazz tribute to Manos Hadjidakis, παρουσιάστηκε με εξαιρετική επιτυχία και ενθουσιώδεις κριτικές στις 15 Ιανουαρίου και 21 Ιουνίου του 2011, στο Μέγαρο Μουσικής Αθηνών. Κυκλοφορεί, κατόπιν ειδικής άδειας, από την ιστορική ετικέτα της Verve.

Την 1η Μαρτίου, στο βιβλιοπωλείο "Ελευθερουδάκης" έγινε απονομή χρυσού δίσκου, στο κουιντέτο του Δημήτρη Καλαντζή για το "Mano's" Tribute to Manos Hadjidakis.
