by BWW News Desk - Nov 25, 2016

An orchestral work by the young Igor Stravinsky, assumed lost for over a century, receives its first performance in modern times in St Petersburg on 2 December. Funeral Song (Pogrebal'naya Pesnya) was composed by the 26-year-old composer as a memorial tribute to his beloved teacher Rimsky-Korsakov and, as his op.5, is the missing link between his early Fireworks and Scherzo Fantastique and his ballet The Firebird, written for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, which launched Stravinsky's international career.

Guest Blog: Composer Luke Bateman on MR POPPER'S PENGUINS
by Guest Blog: Luke Bateman - Nov 24, 2016

I like to write tunes. By tunes I mean real hummable melodies. Some people scoff at this as if 'that's easy' or 'not exactly art', but I thoroughly disagree. Lots of songwriters write both music and lyrics, and I've given lyrics a go, but I like to stick to the music. In my opinion, my job is to serve a lyric. A great Melody can carry a poor lyric, but a good lyric sure as hell ain't gonna carry a bad tune. When you combine both a great lyric and a great Melody then you've hit the jackpot. (more...)

New Book and Animation Series for Children is Announced
by BWW News Desk - Nov 23, 2016

Melody's Song is a animated book and video series that was designed to not only encourage reading but develop confidence and hope in young people. Melody's Song can be categorized as both a children's book with musical themes and one that emphasizes black characters in children's literature. The series can be used by schools and parents to teach life lessons and foster a love of music and exploration. The book launches on November 23, 2016 just in time for the holiday gift-giving season. According to studies presented by non-profit research center Child Trends, African American children face educational expectations lower than that of white children. As a result black children often turn these lowered expectations into self-fulfilling prophesies without some type of social encouragement and out-of-school learning opportunities. When presented with creative outlets, positive reinforcements, and other examples of educational expression minority children thrive. The goal of the Melody's Song book series is to help children find their unique voice, gain self-worth, and find confidence in their own abilities. 'Having grown up in Kalamazoo and, of course, visiting family in places like Detroit and Flint, I realized that kids require hope and whimsy as much as food, shelter, and air in order to grow into a self-actualized adult,' says author Lonna Hardin. 'I grew up with music all around me and that music lifted me up and inspired me. As a parent, I want to help my daughter and other children find their song and their whimsy. One of my other goals for this, one I find equally important, is to show black humor in children's literature and present the richness of black culture.' The book and animation series is designed for all children, but specifically targets: ? Culturally Diverse Children ? Special Needs Children ? Children from Single Parent Households ? Economically Disadvantaged. This culturally relevant literature for urban populations aims to bridge the gap between cultural identities and educational outcomes. The first book in the series, 'Melody's Song and the City of the Voice Snatchers' reaches out to children lacking confidence and needing to find their place in the world. Melody's Song and the City of the Voice Snatchers can be shared by parents, grandparents, churches, educators, nonprofits and those looking to increase literacy and learning among African American children between the ages of 5 and 10. These children's music story books can be purchased through bookstores and online retailers for parents and others who see the value in producing books that can inspire children in more difficult situations to keep going and growing, the author has set up a GoFundMe. For more information about the book, author, and concepts being developed for the series check out Melody's Song Facebook page and visit: www.Melodyssong.com www.twitter.com/getMelodyssong www.instagram/getMelodyssong (more...)

BWW Review: THE FLYING DUTCHMAN Vanishes Too Quickly from Austin, TX
by Amy Bradley - Nov 17, 2016

Presented during The Austin's Opera's 30th anniversary season, THE FLYING DUTCHMAN commands the historic Long Center's stage with a diverse, collective cast and belting operatic sequences. The origins of the story of The Flying Dutchman are rather skewed between timelines. The story first appeared in Travels in various parts Europe, Asia, and Africa in 1790 by John MacDonald, and again when Richard Wagner's operatic rendition came to life in 1843, after being adapted from an episode of Heinrich Heine's satirical novel The Memoirs of Mister von Schnabelewopski. More modernly, the story of The Flying Dutchman is told through the highly loved film series, The Pirates of The Carribean. Regardless of the interpretations by creative minds, one fact remains true - The Flying Dutchman refers to a ghostly ship destined to sail the seas for all eternity. Richard Wagner's rendition, sure to please both critics and audiences alike, is bringing this haunted tale to life with the reputation of precision that precedes The Austin Opera. (more...)
