    The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960, and one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. From 1962 the group consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals). Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, the group later worked in many genres ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. The nature of their enormous popularity, which first emerged as the Beatlemania fad, transformed as their songwriting grew in sophistication. The group came to be perceived as the embodiment of progressive ideals, seeing their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.

    With an early five-piece line-up of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe (bass) and Pete Best (drums), The Beatles built their reputation in Liverpool and Hamburg clubs over a three-year period from 1960. Sutcliffe left the group in 1961, and Best was replaced by Starr the following year. Moulded into a professional outfit by music store owner Brian Epstein after he offered to act as the group's manager, and with their musical potential enhanced by the hands-on creativity of producer George Martin, The Beatles achieved mainstream success in the United Kingdom in late 1962 with their first single, Love Me Do. Gaining international popularity over the course of the next year, they toured extensively until 1966, then retreated to the recording studio until their break-up in 1970. Each then found success in an independent musical career. Lennon was murdered outside his home in New York City in 1980, and Harrison died of cancer in 2001. McCartney and Starr remain active.

    During their studio years, The Beatles produced what critics consider some of their finest material including the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), widely regarded as a masterpiece. Four decades after their break-up, The Beatles' music continues to be popular. The Beatles have had more number one albums on the UK charts, and held down the top spot longer, than any other musical act. According to RIAA certifications, they have sold more albums in the United States than any other artist. In 2008, Billboard magazine released a list of the all-time top-selling Hot 100 artists to celebrate the US singles chart's fiftieth anniversary, with The Beatles at number one. They have been honoured with 7 Grammy Awards, and they have received 15 Ivor Novello Awards from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. The Beatles were collectively included in Time magazine's compilation of the 20th century's 100 most influential people.

    The Beatles' influence on popular culture was—and remains—immense. Former Rolling Stone associate editor Robert Greenfield said, People are still looking at Picasso ... at artists who broke through the constraints of their time period to come up with something that was unique and original.

  • Happy Birthday in the Styles of 10 Classical Composers

    18:27

    During the past 2 years, I've covered these 10 classical composers in my How to Sound Like series. Each episode was uploaded on or around the composers' birthdays, and I dissected the characteristics of their music to construct versions of Happy Birthday in their styles. This is a fun, celebratory, and educational exercise, and in no way am I claiming that the authenticity of these versions is anything more than sincere attempts at trying to understand the intricacies of each composer. Please keep that in mind, and enjoy!

    ➡ All of the sheet music to these arrangements can be found here:
    (*I am planning to make a compilation of the 10 soon)

He holds a doctorate degree in composition under the mentorship of Toronto Symphony Orchestra Composer-Advisor, Gary Kulesha.

    Let It Bleed (50th Anniversary Edition) is out now:


    Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones
    Composers: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

    Lyrics:
    Please allow me to introduce myself
    I'm a man of wealth and taste
    I've been around for a long, long year
    Stole many a man's soul and faith

    I was 'round when Jesus Christ
    Had his moment of doubt and pain
    Made damn sure that Pilate
    Washed his hands and sealed his fate

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name
    But what's puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game

    I stuck around St. Petersberg
    When I saw it was a time for a change
    Killed the Czar and his ministers
    Anastasia screamed in vain
    I rode a tank
    Held a general's rank
    When the blitzkrieg raged
    And the bodies stank

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
    What's puzzling you is the nature of my game, oh yeah

    I watched with glee as your kings and queens
    Fought for ten decades
    For the Gods they made
    I shouted out
    Who killed the Kennedys?
    When after all
    It was you and me

    Let me please introduce myself
    I'm a man of wealth and taste
    And I lay traps for troubadours
    Who get killed before they reach Bombay

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
    But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game, oh yeah
    Well, get down, hit it

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
    But what's confusin’ you is just the nature of my game

    Just as every cop is a criminal
    And all the sinners saints
    As heads is tails just call me Lucifer
    'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

    So if you meet me
    Have some courtesy
    Have some sympathy, and some taste
    Use all your well-learned politesse
    Or I'll lay your soul to waste, mmm yeah
    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guess my name, mmm yeah
    But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. He composed over 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and his influence on subsequent Western art music is profound. Mozart was a versatile composer, and wrote in every major genre, including symphony, opera, the solo concerto, chamber music including string quartet and string quintet, and the piano sonata.

    Bramwell Tovey, conductor

    Robert Comrie Turner, CM (6 June 1920 – 26 January 2012) was a Canadian composer, radio producer, and music educator. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in music from McGill University in 1943. While there he studied with Douglas Clarke and Claude Champagne. He continued his studies briefly at Colorado College in 1947, where he met his wife, percussionist Sara Scott. They married in 1949. In 1947, Turner transferred to Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee, where he studied with Roy Harris. He graduated in 1950 with a master's degree. During this time, Turner spent two summers studying with Herbert Howells and Gordon Jacob at the Royal College of Music and one summer at the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood studying with Olivier Messiaen. He returned to McGill University in 1951, graduating with a doctorate two years later.

    Turner worked as a CBC Vancouver music producer 1952-68, where his responsibilities included the broadcasts of the CBC Vancouver Chamber Orchestra. He taught at the University of British Columbia 1955-7, at Acadia University 1968-9, and at the University of Manitoba 1969-85. He was appointed professor emeritus at the University of Manitoba upon his retirement in 1985. Several of his students have gone on to have successful careers including Peter Allen, Pat Carrabré, Jim Hiscott, Diana McIntosh and Glenn Buhr.

    Among his numerous works are two operas: The Brideship (1967) and Vile Shadows (1983).
    Turner was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada in 2002.

  • The 2015 SOCAN Awards

    3:00

    A who’s who of the Canadian music industry gathered last night in Toronto to honour Canada's most talented “Born to Be” songwriters, composers, lyricists and music publishers at the 26th SOCAN Awards.

    Sponsored by Gowlings, KPMG, RBC and HMV, and hosted my CMT Canada’s Paul McGuire, the SOCAN Awards recognize the lifetime and more recent achievements of Canada’s music creators, honoured in a host of categories, including Pop/Rock, Dance, Urban, Country, Jazz, Folk/Roots, Classical, and Film & Television.

    Recipients of SOCAN’s major achievement awards this year were the legendary Randy Bachman (Lifetime Achievement), Dallas Green (National Achievement), MAGIC! (International Achievement), music industry pioneer Bernie Finkelstein (Special Achievement), and “Born to be Wild” songwriter Mars Bonfire, who accepted SOCAN’s first-ever Cultural Impact Award. All accepted their honours in person, as did R&B chart-toppers The Weeknd and Belly, rising country stars Brett Kissel and Tim Hicks, and film and TV composers Keith Power and Andrew Lockington, among many others.

    Dallas Green thanked his team for supporting him. They believe in me when I don't believe in myself, he said. Thanks for listening, And if you don't listen, that's okay, too. MAGIC!'s Nasri Atweh proclaimed that SOCAN's always been there for us as he thanked the organization. Randy Bachman said, It feels great to be part of the Canadian music scene for so long... We [songwriters] have the dream; we've got to write the songs. He later added, Remember the eleventh commandment: Thou shalt not steal music!

    Performers included soulful young sensation Francesco Yates, who sang “Better to be Loved”; heavy metal rockers Anvil, who honoured Mars Bonfire with a thundering rendition of “Born to be Wild”; Kristian Alexandrov, Olena Kilchyk, Calvin Beale and Doan Pham, who played a medley of film and TV themes; “doom soul” singer-songwriter Cold Specks, who re-defined Warren Pash’s SOCAN Classic Award-winning song “Private Eyes”; and Randy Bachman, backed by Toronto rockers Big Sugar and a who’s who of Canadian music, who closed the show “Takin’ Care of Business” – accompanied by the audience of approximately 600 guests playing cowbells.

    Canadian-made music is essential to Canada’s culture, pride and economy,” said SOCAN CEO Eric Baptiste. “SOCAN’s members are creating music that reaches millions of people at home, and touches hearts and minds worldwide. And our music publisher members are crucial to bringing those songs to the marketplace to expand the reach of great Canadian music around the country, the continent and the world.

    SOCAN will also recognize outstanding Francophone music creators and publishers at an awards gala in October 2015 at Métropolis in the heart of Montreal.

    40

    For violin and piano.

    The focus of this video is on integration with the piano part.

    Musical phrasing and expressive interpretation are left for the student to explore outside of this context.

    Jean Coulthard was a member of the Order of Canada (1978), holder of honorary doctorates from two universities, and decorated many times in competitions between 1948 and her death in 2000. All through her adult life, Coulthard was staunchly of the view that her legacy was in her family; in her compositions; and in her students, a body of young and highly individualistic Canadian composers who have shaped the national musical arts from the late 1960s onward.

  • Erik Satie - Gymnopédies

    15:46

    Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No.1

    Satie was introduced as a gymnopedist in 1887, shortly before writing his most famous compositions, the Gymnopédies. Later, he also referred to himself as a phonometrograph or phonometrician (meaning someone who measures (and writes down) sounds) preferring this designation to that of musician, after having been called a clumsy but subtle technician in a book on contemporary French composers published in 1911.

    Éric Alfred Leslie Satie (French: [eʁik sati];[1] 17 May 1866 – 1 July 1925), who signed his name Erik Satie after 1884, was a French composer and pianist. Satie was an influential artist in the late 19th- and early 20th-century Parisian avant-garde. His work was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music, and the Theatre of the Absurd

    Satie was a colourful figure in the early 20th century Parisian avant-garde. He was a precursor to later artistic movements such as minimalism, repetitive music and the Theatre of the Absurd.
    The Gymnopédies, published in Paris starting in 1888, are three piano compositions written by French composer and pianist, Erik Satie.

    Since 1911 he had been on friendly terms with Igor Stravinsky, about whom he would later write articles.Le piège de Méduse (1913) had a unique position in Satie's oeuvre, as it was a stage work conceived and composed seemingly without any collaboration with other artists.Sports et divertissements was a kind of multi-media project, in which Satie provided piano music to drawings made by Charles Martin. The work was composed in 1914, but not published or performed until the early 1920s. The individual pieces are characteristic Satie miniatures: in all, there are twenty pieces - none over two minutes in length, and some as short as 15 seconds.He got in trouble over an insulting postcard he had written to one of his critics shortly after the premiere of Parade; he was condemned to a week of imprisonment, but was finally released as a result of the (financial) intercession of Winnaretta Singer, Princess Edmond de Polignac.Singer, who had learnt Ancient Greek when she was over 50, had commissioned a work on Socrates in October 1916; this would become his Socrate, which he presented early in 1918 to the Princess.

    DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH
    Chamber Symphony Op. 110a
    Arr. by Roudolf Barchaï after Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 8, Op. 110
    Arr. for accordions by Concertino Accordion Band

    ABOUT THE ALBUM

    No century has seen more innovation in musical forms and styles than the XX century. Never before in the history of music had composers and performers defied so many of the previously accepted rules, bringing about radical changes to the definition of music itself.

    This is a concept accordion ensemble Concertino can relate to; for the last 15 years, they have been rewriting rules, breathing new life in both classical and modern compositions and simultaneously elevating the accordion to new heights. “Shostakovich, Rota, Bartók: Our Way” marks the beginning of a new journey for the Moldavian ensemble - one of self-discovery and improvement, learning and exploration, which will take them the roots of modern music. A first immersion in what was perhaps the most prolific century of music history, the albums pays tribute to three pillars of the 1900s, injecting its own heart and artistic quality into each one of them. The instruments paint a soundscape that is equal parts familiar and foreign, known and unknown and, in doing so, perfectly capture the spirit of an age of contrasts, evolution and new horizons.

    ABOUT CONCERTINO

    Concertino is a multi-awarded ensemble whose main goal has been, from the very beginning, the promotion of the accordion in all its forms and versatility. They held their first rehearsal in 2003, and since then they have been relentlessly working together, always pushing their instruments’ limits along with their own. The hallmark of Concertino is the centrality of the accordion, which becomes the main voice of the ensemble, supported by a selection of other instruments that change upon need.

    Their first award came in 2006 at the International Accordion Festival of Castelfidardo, Italy, fueling their passion and hunger for further self-development. With 19 Grand Prix and First Prizes under their belt, Concertino have performed at the world’s most renowned competitions and festivals, mesmerizing audiences from Canada, North Korea, Germany, Russia, Austria and Czech Republic – and the list goes on.

    Soprano Lois Marshall and contralto Maureen Forrester performed together often. Here are some brief comments they made (with pianist Yehudi Wyner) about one of their joint recitals which may be found in its entirety on the playlists below. Their discussion centers around three Canadian composers included in their concert: Dr. Welford Russell, Keith Bissell and John Beckwith. As a final treat, I have included the final French Canadian folk song set by Beckwith, L'habitant de Saint-Roch sung by Maureen Forrester!

    During his brief life Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart produced a staggering number of compositions that touched upon numerous genre. Yet, if one were to ask where his most innovative contributions lie, it would arguably be within the realm of the classical piano concerto. The challenge for the late 18th-century composers was that of reconciling the Baroque concerto form’s strongest features (distinct timbral contrats between a solo instrumentalist and an orchestra, plus brillant solo writing) with the new style of sonata-allegro. An accomplished virtuoso himself, Mozart elevated the piano soloist’s function to new levels of expression, technique, and dramatic momentum. Consequently, the piano and orchestra were not merely equal partners, but distinct characters in their own right.

    Mozart’s concertos, however, were far from concert hall staples in the early 20th century. Yet the tide began to turn. A new generation of classically oriented keyboard luminaries, whose ranks included Wanda Landowska, Walter Gieseking, Edwin Fischer and Arthur Schnabel, helped further the cause, as did Lili Kraus. Kraus likened her affinity with Mozart to a mission : ''When I began to explore Mozart, I discovered the infinite beauty of that music, and somehow it is given to me to give life to that beauty. I find it my God-given duty, privilege, and if you like, cross, to consecrate my life to this music.''

    Certain pianists and composers become inextricably linked in the eyes of the public. Mention Glenn Gould, for instance, and Bach’s Goldberg Variations come to mind. Artur Schnabel and Beethoven were virtually synonymous; so were Walter Gieseking and Debussy, Arthur Rubinstein and Chopin, Alicia de Larrocha and the Spanish Impressionists. When it came to Mozart’s piano music, several generations of listeners and collector considered Lili Kraus’s interpretations to be the last word… From the synopsis by Jed Distler
