Schubert’s Winter Journey. Anatomy of an Obsession by Ian Bostridge

An exploration of the world’s most famous and challenging song cycle, Schubert’s Winter Journey (Winterreise), by a leading interpreter of the work, who teases out the themes—literary, historical, psychological—that weave through the twenty-four songs that make up this legendary masterpiece.

Completed in the last months of the young Schubert’s life, Winterreise has come to be considered the single greatest piece of music in the history of Lieder. Deceptively laconic—these twenty-four short poems set to music for voice and piano are performed uninterrupted in little more than an hour—it nonetheless has an emotional depth and power that no music of its kind has ever equaled.

A young man, rejected by his beloved, leaves the house where he has been living and walks out into snow and darkness. As he wanders away from the village and into the empty countryside, he experiences a cascade of emotions—loss, grief, anger, and acute loneliness, shot through with only fleeting moments of hope—until the landscape he inhabits becomes one of alienation and despair.

Originally intended to be sung to an intimate gathering, performances of Winterreise now pack the greatest concert halls around the world.

Drawing equally on his vast experience performing this work (he has sung it more than one hundred times), on his musical knowledge, and on his training as a scholar, Bostridge teases out the enigmas and subtle meanings of each of the twenty-four lyrics to explore for us the world

Schubert inhabited, his biography and psychological makeup, the historical and political pressures within which he became one of the world’s greatest composers, and the continuing resonances and affinities that our ears still detect today, making Schubert’s wanderer our mirror.

Ian Bostridge performs regularly throughout Europe, North America and the Far East to outstanding critical acclaim. He read Modern History at Oxford and received a D.Phil in 1990. He is the author of Witchcraft and Its Transformations c.1650-c.1750 and A Singer’s Notebook. He is Humanitas Professor of Music at the University of Oxford and a regular contributor to The Guardian and the TLS. He is married to the writer and critic Lucasta Miller. They live in London with their two children.

Bob Dylan compleet. Het verhaal van de 492 songs – 2e druk

Bob Dylan Compleet is een reis van het absolute begin naar het meest recente einde, onderweg stoppend bij albums en outtakes, films en concerten – alles gebaseerd op interviews met de songwriter zelf en de muzikanten, producers en bekenden om hem heen.

Daarbij is het boek rijk geïllustreerd met zowel iconische als onbekendere foto’s van de beste fotografen uit de rockscene. Dit is een bijbel voor alle fans die het waard is om keer op keer uit de kast getrokken te worden bij het beluisteren van de klassieke liedjes.

Het is een uitgebreid en onmisbaar overzicht van een muzikale carrière die dit jaar werd en wordt gevierd met de 75ste verjaardag van Bob Dylan, een nieuw album en een optreden op Coachella (een van de grootste muziekfestivals in Amerika). Daarbij heeft Dylan de Nobelprijs voor de Literatuur in 2016 gewonnen.

704 pagina’s, 492 nummers. Bob Dylan Compleet vertelt chronologisch en zonder een detail over te slaan het verhaal van een songwriter en muzikant die niet alleen in de muziek- maar ook in de wereldgeschiedenis een bijzondere plaats in neemt.

Philippe Margotin en Jean-Michel Guesdon schreven eerder de internationale hit The Beatles Compleet.

Wereldberoemd ballet ‘Romeo en Julia’ van Sergei Prokofiev in Nederlandse Theaters

Romeo en Julia van Prokofiev is zonder twijfel één van de hoogtepunten uit de klassiek-romantische ballettraditie.

Met het beroemde verhaal van Shakespeare als basis, schetst deze voorstelling de geschiedenis van een onmogelijke liefde.

Romeo en Julia hebben hun hart aan elkaar verpand, maar omdat hun families al generaties lang ruzie hebben, kan het niks worden tussen de geliefden. Dus als ze trouwplannen maken, wordt het huwelijk aan alle kanten gedwarsboomd, met tragische gevolgen.

In de fantastische muziek van de beroemde componist Prokofiev weerklinken de hartstocht en dramatiek die deze choreografie verbeeldt.

Met dans van wereldniveau brengt het ballet van de Staatsopera van Tatarstan dit ultieme liefdesverhaal in heel Europa met succes tot leven. Hun weelderige kostuums geven de voorstelling kleur en dynamiek. Ook de decors zijn indrukwekkend: die bieden een betoverende achtergrond voor onder meer de uitbundige feesttaferelen in het verhaal en natuurlijk de beroemde balkonscene, die het symbool werd van de romantiek.

De passie van de dansers en de hartverscheurende ontmoetingen tussen de geliefden maken van deze voorstelling een aanrader voor alle generaties met een gevoelig hart.

Romeo en Julia
Nog te zien in theaters door heel Nederland
van december 2017 t/m februari 2018.

Reckless Daughter. A Portrait of Joni Mitchell by David Yaffe

Joni Mitchell is a cultural touchstone for generations of Canadians.

In her heyday she released ten experimental, challenging, and revealing albums; her lyrics captivated people with the beauty of their language and the rawness of their emotions, both deeply personal to Mitchell and universally relatable to her audience. In this intimate biography, composed of dozens of in-person interviews with Mitchell.

David Yaffe reveals the backstory behind the famous songs from her youth on the Canadian prairie, her pre-vaccine bout with polio at age nine, and her early marriage and the child she gave up for adoption, up through the quintessential albums and love affairs, and all the way to the present?and shows us why Mitchell has so enthralled her listeners, her lovers, and her friends.

Yaffe has had unprecedented access both to Mitchell and to those who know her, drawing on interviews with childhood friends and the cast of famous characters (Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Leonard Cohen, David Crosby, and more) with whom she has crossed paths and influenced, as well as insightful analyses of her famous lyrics, their imagery and style, and what they say about the woman herself.

Reckless Daughter tells the story of Mitchell and also of the fertile, exciting musical time of which she was an integral part, one that had a profound effect that can still be felt today on American music and the industry.

David Yaffe was born in Dallas, Texas, in 1973. He has written on numerous subjects (music, film, theater, dance, higher education) forThe Nation, New York, Slate, The New York Times, The New Republic, Harper’s Magazine, and other publications. He is currently a professor of Humanities at Syracuse University, and is the author of Fascinating Rhythm: Reading Jazz in American Writing and Bob Dylan: Like a Complete Unknown.

Clovis Goux: La Disparition de Karen Carpenter

Durant les années 1970, The Carpenters est le groupe le plus populaire aux États-Unis.

Un immense succès (100 millions de disques vendus) qui s’explique par l’alchimie unique entre ses deux membres fondateurs, Richard et Karen Carpenter, un frère et une sœur. Ces deux enfants de la classe moyenne imposent un retour à l’ordre musical après la révolution psychédélique, avec des hits aussi romantiques que réactionnaires, tels Close to you, We’ve Only Just Begun ou Rainy Days and Mondays. Mais derrière cette success story se cache une tragédie.

La Disparition de Karen Carpenter raconte cette histoire, nous amenant à porter un regard de côté sur les grands phénomènes socio-culturels qui marquèrent l’Amérique de l’époque.

Clovis Goux est journaliste indépendant et cofondateur du label Dirty.

Absolutely on Music. Conversations by Haruki Murakami and Seiji Ozawa

A deeply personal, intimate conversation about music and writing between the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author and the former conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

In Absolutely on Music, internationally Haruki Murakami sits down with his friend Seiji Ozawa, the revered former conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, for a series of conversations on their shared passion: music.

Over the course of two years, Murakami and Ozawa discuss everything from Brahms to Beethoven, from Leonard Bernstein to Glenn Gould, from Bartók to Mahler, and from pop-up orchestras to opera. They listen to and dissect recordings of some of their favorite performances, and Murakami questions Ozawa about his career conducting orchestras around the world. Culminating in Murakami’s ten-day visit to the banks of Lake Geneva to observe Ozawa’s retreat for young musicians, the book is interspersed with ruminations on record collecting, jazz clubs, orchestra halls, film scores, and much more. A deep reflection on the essential nature of both music and writing, Absolutely on Music is an unprecedented glimpse into the minds of two maestros.

Haruki Murakami is a best-selling Japanese writer. His works of fiction and non-fiction have garnered critical acclaim and numerous awards, including the Franz Kafka Prize, the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and the Jerusalem Prize, among others. Murakami’s fiction is humorous and surreal, focusing on themes of alienation and loneliness. He is considered an important figure in postmodern literature. The Guardian praised Murakami as “among the world’s greatest living novelists” for his works and achievements. Murakami is the author of 1Q84, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, Men Without Women and many more.

Seiji Ozawa served as music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra for twenty-nine years, and was music director of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Ravinia Festival, and Wiener Staatsoper. With Kazuyoshi Akiyama, he formed the Saito Kinen Orchestra and is the director of the Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival. Ozawa has been deeply involved in musical education through his work with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, the Ozawa International Chamber Music Academy Okushiga, the Seiji Ozawa International Academy Switzerland, and as founder of the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy Opera Project, organizations which provide opportunities to outstanding students in Asia and Europe. Among his many honors, Ozawa has been awarded France’s Officier de la Légion d’Honneur, the Japanese Order of Culture, a Kennedy Center Honor, and a Grammy for Best Opera Recording.

Litz Pisk: The Actor and His Body

Litz Pisk was widely regarded as the finest and most influential teacher of modern theatre movement.

She was a director of movement at the Old Vic, National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, English National Opera, and in television and films, including directing the movement for Vanessa Redgrave’s film role in Isadora. She was director of Vienna’s School of Art and Movement and a teacher at the Old Vic School, Bath Academy of Art, RADA and the Central School of Speech and Drama. The Actor and His Body, her seminal work, was first published in 1975.

‘Once you start working with someone like Litz you don’t ever want to stop if you can help it’ – Vanessa Redgrave

Pisk’s quest was to find expression for the inner impulse that motivated actors to move. Her teachings, as outlined in this book, offer insight on the specific craft of the actor, and the relationship between movement, imagination and the ‘need’ to move.

The Actor and His Body is also a practical manual for keeping the actor’s body physically and expressively responsive. In addition, there are a range of movement exercises, illuminated by her exquisite line drawings, and complete weekly programme which concentrates on movement practice within different timescales.

This fourth edition features the original foreword by Michael Elliot as well as a new introduction by Ayse Tashkiran, contemporary movement director and Senior Lecturer at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, which contextualises Pisk’s work.

An exploration of nature of creative invention: Devotion by Patti Smith

A work of creative brilliance may seem like magic — its source a mystery, its impact unexpectedly stirring.

How does an artist accomplish such an achievement, connecting deeply with an audience never met? In this groundbreaking book, one of our culture’s beloved artists offers a detailed account of her own creative process, inspirations, and unexpected connections.

Patti Smith first presents an original and beautifully crafted tale of obsession—a young skater who lives for her art, a possessive collector who ruthlessly seeks his prize, a relationship forged of need both craven and exalted.

She then takes us on a second journey, exploring the sources of her story. We travel through the South of France to Camus’s house, and visit the garden of the great publisher Gallimard where the ghosts of Mishima, Nabokov, and Genet mingle.

Smith tracks down Simone Weil’s grave in a lonely cemetery, hours from London, and winds through the nameless Paris streets of Patrick Modiano’s novels. Whether writing in a café or a train, Smith generously opens her notebooks and lets us glimpse the alchemy of her art and craft in this arresting and original book on writing.

The Why I Write series is based on the Windham-Campbell Lectures, delivered annually to commemorate the awarding of the Donald Windham-Sandy M. Campbell Literature Prizes at Yale University.

From the renowned artist and author Patti Smith, an inspired exploration of the nature of creative invention:

Littérature et poésie – Nuit de la Poésie 2017 = 11 – 12 Novembre 2017

 

Pour la deuxième année consécutive, l’IMA et la Maison de la Poésie s’unissent pour convoquer, le temps d’une nuit, la poésie et célébrer la beauté du verbe, en mémoire des attentats de Paris en novembre 2015. Cette deuxième édition est aussi celle d’un nouveau partage : la Nuit 2017 résonnera, en même temps, à travers huit villes du monde arabe.

En mémoire des attentats de Paris du 13 novembre 2015, l’initiative a en 2016 rassemblé près d’une cinquantaine d’artistes de disciplines différentes, parlant l’arabe, le français ou l’hébreu. Plus de 3 000 personnes se sont réunies à l’IMA.

Dans la nuit du 11 au 12 novembre 2017, la deuxième édition de la Nuit de la Poésie offrira une nouvelle fois la possibilité de découvrir et d’apprécier la poésie – cette année en arabe, en français et en persan – à travers la lecture, le slam, le rap, le chant ou encore les arts du cirque.
