Rossini’s Petite Messe Solenelle with Vokalsystem

34365169_1908984915818974_3839742234828210176_o Now, I’m not usually in for religious music and neither was Rossini. However, my former teacher in Brussels, my loving Dinah Bryant, told me to never turn down a chance to sing Rossini.

And so here it goes, a very special Rossini Messe -it might have already been played 174 times this year, since it’s 150 years since Rossini’s death, but guess what, OUR ROSSINI IS DIFFERENT, OUR ROSSINI IS SPECIAL.

I’m always happy to be back in Belgium, many dear friends there. This time in order to sing Sciarrino pieces and something I always wanted to sing…the Epitaph of Seikilos, the oldest surviving example of a complete musical composition, including musical notation, from anywhere in the world, dated variously from around 200 BC to around AD 100. This Sunday! Find more about the concert here

BETWEEN THE BARS

—“””It’s not a love song, exactly, and it’s not a song about addiction, exactly. “Between the Bars” is about the ways in which protecting somebody you love turns into the need to control that person.”””

—“it’s really a love song written from alcohol to Elliott”

–“First, and most obviously, they’re the bars within which the speaker/singer is drinking. Second, they are the bars of the musical composition he is dedicating to that endeavor. Finally, they are the bars of the prison he is metaphorically creating for himself, and might, someday, have to face in a literal way.””

and many more interpretations……..
