Borut Krzisnik is a Slovenian composer of contemporary music, based in Ljubljana. He was born in Zagreb in 1961. Born into a family of diplomats, he moved frequently during his childhood, both within former Yugoslavia and abroad, before finally settling in Ljubljana. Living among different nationalities and experiencing different mentalities helped form his understanding of diversity, something which certainly contributed to his broad approach to music. He played piano as a child, eventually ...

Synopsis On today’s date in 1993, the American composer Daniel Asia conducted the Phoenix Symphony in the premiere performance of his Symphony No. 4. The work included a slow movement, written as an orchestral elegy for Asia’s friend and composer colleague, Stephen Albert, who had died in a car crash the previous year. But Asia cast his symphony in…
 
Brian and Caleb Chan bring a high level of emotional intelligence to everything they do, and believe that a focus on that growth is critical to success in both life and creative business. When you understand that their attention to the inner world carries over into the work they do as musicians and storytellers, you realize it’s no accident that th…
 
It is summer 1876. Brahms is vacationing with his friend George Henschel on the Baltic island or Rügen and finishing work on his first symphony in C minor... Works heard in this episode (all by Brahms): Symphony no. 1 in C minor op. 68 Excerpts: performed by Chang Ji, Mrs. the GCP - mvt. 1 mm. 1-2, mm. 41, mm. 42-46 - mvt. 4 mm. 1-3, mm. 12-14 ...b…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1930, “The Age of Gold,” a new ballet by the Soviet composer Dmitri Shostakovich opened in Leningrad. At that time, it was trendy for Soviet Art to extol sporting events, and contrast the wholesome values of the new Soviet society with those of the decadent, bourgeois West. And so, the plot of this new Soviet ballet ran …
 
Synopsis The REAL story behind Richard Strauss’ decision to use a chamber orchestra for his opera “Ariadne on Naxos” – which premiered in Stuttgart on today’s date in 1912 – is complicated and a little mundane. We prefer a more “colorful” version that some in Stuttgart have proffered. When a new opera house was being planned for that city, Strauss …
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1930, Howard Hanson led the premiere performance of the full orchestral version of William Grant Still’s symphonic poem, “Africa” at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. Still had originally conceived “Africa” as a chamber work, dedicated to and premiered by the great French flutist Georges Barrère earlier…
 
Synopsis On today's date in 1959, the Detroit Symphony under the eminent French conductor Paul Paray gave the first performance of some brand-new music by the eminent American composer Walter Piston. Piston had studied in Paris with the famous French composition teacher Nadia Boulanger and the great French composer Paul Dukas, so perhaps this was a…
 
Synopsis Handel is the composer credited with “inventing” the organ concerto back in the 18th century. Handel was a virtuoso performer on the organ, and, as a special added attraction during the London performances of some of his oratorios, one of Handel’s concertos would be featured as a kind of intermission feature. This served to showcase Handel…
 
Synopsis Let’s face it. Brevity and wit are not always qualities one associates with new music. But today we offer a sample: this comic overture is less than 5 minutes long, and opens, as you just heard, with a Fellini-esque duet for piccolo and contrabassoon. The overture is entitled “Quantum Quirks of a Quick Quaint Quark,” and is a rather burles…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1950, the famous oboist Marcel Tabuteau gave the premiere performance of this “Pastorale” for solo oboe, harp, and strings, with his colleagues from the Philadelphia Orchestra. The music was by Howard Hanson, who dedicated the piece to his wife Peggy. Hanson was born in Wahoo, Nebraska in 1896. As a talented teenager, Ha…
 
Synopsis According to Wikipedia, an art song is “a vocal music composition, usually written for one voice with piano accompaniment … often a musical setting of an independent poem or text intended for the concert repertory as part of a recital.” The 600-plus art songs of the Viennese composer Franz Schubert are the most familiar examples of the gen…
 
Synopsis In 1958, the state of Minnesota was celebrating its centennial, and decided to commission a symphony in honor of the occasion. Just about everyone these days knows there are a lot of Norwegians in Minnesota, but even back in 1958, that was still fairly obvious, and so it seemed a good idea to ask a Norwegian composer to write a “Minnesota …
 
Synopsis By the mid-1940s, the famous American bandleader Paul Whiteman was not as popular as he once was during the 20s and 30s. Even so, his name and orchestra were still a draw, and Whiteman was ever hopeful of introducing new pieces that might prove as popular as Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” and Grofé’s “Grand Canyon Suite” – both commissioned…
 
Synopsis There are some operas which are rarely – if ever – staged, but whose music becomes famous – even wildly popular—in the concert hall. Everyone has heard the overture to Rossini’s “William Tell,” for example, but only a few fortunate (or very determined) opera fans ever get to see the whole opera staged. Zoltán Kodály’s opera “Háry János” fa…
 
Synopsis The expatriate American composer Conlon Nancarrow came to the conclusion that the rhythmically complex, intricate contrapuntal music he wanted to write would be too difficult for mere mortals to tackle, so he composed for a mechanical instrument: the player piano. Despite its complexity, Nancarrow’s music drew some of its inspiration from …
 
Synopsis Imagine the cocktail party bragging rights you’d have if you had attended the first night of “Girl Crazy,” a musical that opened in New York on today’s date in 1930. That show marked the Broadway debut of Ethel Merman, and co-starred Ginger Rogers. But that’s just for starters… The pit orchestra that night included Benny Goodman, Gene Krup…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1944, a 29-year-old American composer named David Diamond had his Second Symphony premiered by the Boston Symphony under the famous Russian conductor Serge Koussevitzky. Diamond says he had written this music for the charismatic Greek maestro Dimitri Mitropoulos, then the music director of the Minneapolis Symphony. “Mitr…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1945, Serge Koussevitzky conducted the Boston Symphony in the premiere performance of the Third Symphony of the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu. Martinu had finished the first two movements of his symphony as the Second World War was rushing to a close and later claimed he had Beethoven’s Third, the “Eroica,” very much o…
 
Synopsis If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then composers must really have a thing about birds. For centuries, composers have imitated bird song. Vivaldi’s “Goldfinch” concerto for flute is one of the best-known examples from the 18th century, and there are a flock of other examples. On today’s date in 1953, at the Donaueschingen Musi…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1903, a baby boy was born in the Russian railroad station of Parfianovka. The proud parents of little Vladimir Dukelsky were both musical, and so lulled him to sleep with Italian opera arias – presumably the SLOW ones! Not surprisingly, little Vladimir grew up to become a composer. After the Russian Revolution, Dukelsky …
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1999, the Lyric Opera of Chicago premiered a new opera by the American composer William Bolcom, based on “A View from the Bridge,” a powerful play by Arthur Miller. Now, not all stage plays “translate” well into opera, as Bolcom was well aware: “In theater, you have the text and then below it you have the subtext,” said …
 
Synopsis The Russian Revolution of 1917 wiped out many family fortunes, and many penniless, Russian émigrés who fled the Bolsheviks had to start from scratch in exile. Natalie Koussevitzky, however, was not one of them. Her family fortune was fairly diversified, which meant that even the loss of her large Russian holdings left her with considerable…
 
Synopsis From 1976 to 1984, the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt kept revising and adjusting a chamber piece he had composed, a piece he had titled: “If Bach had kept bees…” On today’s date in 1983 one version of this piece – for harpsichord, electric bass guitar, tape and small chamber ensemble—received its premiere performance at a new music festival …
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1991, the American Composers Orchestra gave a concert at Carnegie Hall, celebrating the 80th birthday of the Armenian-American composer Alan Hovhaness. Hovhaness himself was on hand, and conducted the world premiere performance of his Symphony No. 65. By the time of this death in the year 2000, Hovhaness had composed 67 …
 
Janal Bechthold’s musical journey started not on the piano playing Mozart, but rather on the organ playing 50’s swing and Tangos. Again sidestepping more well-worn paths, she studied music therapy at Laurier and spent years alternately in that profession, and as a church organist. These activities were, however, both informed by and are now critica…
 
Synopsis If, on today’s date in the year 1930, you happened to be flipping through the pages of the New York Times, you would have seen several ads for radios, including one that argued that purchasing a radio was a good investment. This was only one year after the infamous 1929 stock market crash, so New Yorkers might have been a little leery of i…
