Julian Nott came to music relatively late. After studying Music and Politics and Economics at Oxford University, he worked for a management consultancy firm in the City for a number of  years. Finding that not entirely to his liking, he enrolled in the UK’s National Film And Television School, funding his studies by simultaneously working freelance for the Economist Publications. After film school, Julian worked as an independent documentary film producer, making films for Channel Four Television, Arte Channel and WGBH Boston. Along the way he qualified as a (non-practising) barrister. At film school, Julian met the animator Nick Park, writing the music for his early Wallace and Gromit films. When these films became such a huge success, the offers starting come in and Julian switched to film scoring full time. His work still includes much animation (“Wallace and Gromit in the The Curse of the Wererabbit”, “Peppa Pig”, “Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom”, “The Hungry Caterpillar”). Feature films credits include “The Decoy Bride”, “My Mother’s Courage”, “Heavy Petting” and “A Man Of No Importance”. On television, credits include all four series of the BBC’s popular “Lark Rise to Candleford”, ITV's "The Vice" and David Jason’s comedy “The Royal Bodyguard”.Julian Nott’s websiteSUPPORT THIS PODCASTPatreonDonorboxORDER SAMUEL ANDREYEV’S NEWEST RELEASEIridescent NotationLINKSYouTube channelOfficial WebsiteTwitterInstagramEdition Impronta, publisher of Samuel Andreyev’s scoresEPISODE CREDITSPodcast artwork photograph © 2019 Philippe StirnweissSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/samuelandreyev)

In 1972, Betsy Jolas (b. 1926) traveled to Indonesia with Iannis Xenakis, Toru Takemitsu, Henri-Louis de la Grange, Maurice Fleuret and several others. While there, she encountered the Topeng dance, which, nearly 50 years later, inspired the composition of her 8th quartet, Topeng. This piece was written for the Arditti Quartet in 2019. In anticipation of her 95th birthday on 5 August 2021, she tells us what happened on that trip, what it was like traveling with Takemitsu and Xenakis, and why it is that Bali left such an indelible imprint on her music.MUSIC HEARD IN THIS EPISODEBetsy Jolas, Topeng for string quartet (2019)Performed live by the Arditti String QuartetSUPPORT THIS PODCASTPatreonDonorboxORDER SAMUEL ANDREYEV’S NEWEST RELEASEIridescent NotationLINKSYouTube channelOfficial WebsiteTwitterInstagramEdition Impronta, publisher of Samuel Andreyev’s scoresEPISODE CREDITSPodcast artwork photograph © 2019 Philippe StirnweissSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/samuelandreyev)

Matthew Ricketts, composer

2021-06-2201:47:16

Matthew Ricketts (b. 1986, British Columbia) is a Canadian composer currently based in New York City. His music moves from extremes of presence and absence, from clamor to quietude, at once reticent and flamboyant. Matthew’s music has been called “lyrical, contrapuntal, rhythmically complex and highly nuanced” (The American Academy of Arts and Letters) and is noted for his “effervescent and at times prickly sounds,” “hypnotically churning exploration of melody” (ICareIfYouListen) as well as its “tart harmonies and perky sputterings” (The New York Times). He is a 2020 Gaudeamus Finalist and a 2019 Guggenheim Fellow.     In 2018 Ricketts’ multilingual opera Chaakapesh: The Trickster’s Quest (written in collaboration with renowned Cree playwright Tomson Highway) opened the Montreal Symphony’s 84th season to great critical acclaim and went on to tour Indigenous communities throughout Québec. Matthew is the recipient of fellowships from Civitella Ranieri (2020/2021), The American Academy of Arts and Letters (2020), MacDowell (2019), the Tanglewood Music Center (2018 Elliott Carter Memorial Fellowship) and the Aspen Music Festival (2017), in addition to the 2016 Lili Boulanger Memorial Fund Prize, the 2016 Jacob Druckman Prize (Aspen Music Festival), the 2016 Mivos/Kanter Prize, the 2015 Salvatore Martirano Memorial Composition Award, a 2013 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award and eight prizes in the SOCAN Foundation’s Awards for Young Composers.Matthew holds degrees in music composition and theory from McGill University’s Schulich School of Music (B.Mus. 2009) and Columbia University (DMA 2017). Matthew’s principal mentors include Brian Cherney, John Rea, Chris Paul Harman, George Lewis and Fred Lerdahl. He was a Core Lecturer at Columbia University from 2017-2020.Musical excerpt:Adrift (2020), concerto for clarinet and orchestraPhilharmonisches Staatsorchester HamburgRupert Wachter, clarinetKent Nagano, conductorMore about Matthew RickettsSUPPORT THIS PODCASTPatreonDonorboxORDER SAMUEL ANDREYEV’S NEWEST RELEASEIridescent NotationLINKSYouTube channelOfficial WebsiteTwitterInstagramEdition Impronta, publisher of Samuel Andreyev’s scoresEPISODE CREDITSPodcast artwork photograph © 2019 Philippe StirnweissSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/samuelandreyev)

Brian Ferneyhough interview

Brian Ferneyhough interview

2021-02-1901:39:44

Brian Ferneyhough is widely recognized as one of today's foremost living composers. Since the mid-1970s, when he first gained widespread international recognition, his music has earned him an enviable reputation as one of the most influential creative personalities and significant musical thinkers on the contemporary scene. Ferneyhough was born in Coventry, England, in 1943 and received formal musical training at the Birmingham School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, London. In 1968 he was awarded the Mendelssohn Scholarship, which enabled him to continue his studies in Amsterdam with Ton de Leeuw, and the following year obtained a scholarship to study with Klaus Huber at the Basel Conservatoire. Following Ferneyhough’s move to mainland Europe, his music began to receive much wider recognition. The Gaudeamus Composers’ Competition in the Netherlands awarded Ferneyhough prizes in three successive years (1968-70) for his Sonatas for String Quartet, Epicycle and Missa Brevis respectively. The Italian section of the ISCM at its 1972 competition gave Ferneyhough an honourable mention (second place) for Firecycle Beta and two years later a special prize for Time and Motion Study III which was considered the best work submitted in all categories. Recent works have included Inconjunctions (2014), Contraccolpi (2016), and a collection of encounters influenced by Christopher Tye, Umbrations (2001-2017), premiered by the Arditti Quartet and Ensemble Modern at Wittener Tage für Neue Kammermusik. Associated with the most prestigious teaching institutions and international summer schools for contemporary music, from 1984 to 1996 Ferneyhough was Composition Course Co-ordinator at the biennial Darmstädter Ferienkurse für Neue Musik. In 1984 he was made Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres and he has since been named a member of the Berlin Akademie der Künste, the Bayrische Akademie der Schönen Künste and a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music. Most recently, he was awarded the 2007 Ernst von Siemens Music Prize.SUPPORT THIS PODCASTPatreonDonorboxORDER SAMUEL ANDREYEV’S NEWEST RELEASEIridescent NotationLINKSYouTube channelOfficial WebsiteTwitterInstagramEdition Impronta, publisher of Samuel Andreyev’s scoresEPISODE CREDITSPodcast artwork photograph © 2019 Philippe StirnweissSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/samuelandreyev)

In this episode I present a 3-way conversation between English composers Colin Matthews, Julian Anderson and myself.Colin Matthews was born in London in 1946. He studied with Arnold Whittall and Nicholas Maw; in the 1970s he was assistant to Benjamin Britten, and worked for many years with Imogen Holst. His collaboration with Deryck Cooke on the performing version of Mahler’s Tenth Symphony lasted from 1963 until its publication in 1975. Over four decades his music has ranged from solo piano music through five string quartets and many ensemble and orchestral works. He was Associate Composer with the London Symphony Orchestra between 1992 and 1999, and Composer-in-Association with the Hallé from 2001-10, now their Composer Emeritus. Colin Matthews’ music is published by Faber Music. Julian Anderson is one of the most talented composers of his generation. Born in London in 1967, he studied with John Lambert, Alexander Goehr and Tristan Murail and first came to prominence when his orchestral Diptych (1990) won the RPS Composition Prize in 1992.  Anderson has held Composer in Residence positions with the City of Birmingham Symphony, Cleveland and London Philharmonic orchestras, relationships which produced an impressive body of orchestral works including Stations of the Sun (1998, a BBC Proms Commission) and Eden (2005, Cheltenham Festival). Fantasias (2009), written for the Cleveland Orchestra, won a British Composer Award and The Discovery of Heaven (2011), a co-commission by the New York Philharmonic and the London Philharmonic Orchestra was awarded a South Bank Sky Arts Award. Both works were recorded by the LPO live label. Anderson has enjoyed commissions from bodies including the BCMG, London Sinfonietta, Asko-Schönberg Ensemble and Cheltenham Festival. Book of Hours for ensemble and electronics (2004) won the 2006 RPS Award for Large Scale Composition and featured on a NMC portrait disc. This was one of two recordings of his music to be nominated for a 2007 Gramophone Award, the other being the eventual winner, Alhambra Fantasy (Ondine).  Poetry Nearing Silence (1997), originally a commission from the Nash Ensemble, was later arranged to become a successful ballet choreographed by Mark Baldwin. In 2009, Anderson and Baldwin collaborated again on a Darwin-inspired ballet, The Comedy of Change, which toured nationally. Julian Anderson's music is published by Faber Music and by Schott Music.More about Julian AndersonMore about Colin MatthewsSUPPORT THIS PODCASTPatreonDonorboxORDER SAMUEL ANDREYEV’S NEWEST RELEASEIridescent NotationLINKSYouTube channelOfficial WebsiteTwitterInstagramEdition Impronta, publisher of Samuel Andreyev’s scoresEPISODE CREDITSPodcast artwork photograph © 2019 Philippe StirnweissSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/samuelandreyev)
In this episode, I spoke with three composition students about the musical and professional landscape they are about to graduate into: Jonty Watt, of Oxford, England; Ben Schweitzer, of the University of Massachussetts Amherst, and Thomas McGee, of Williams College.  All three have one thing in common: they have all worked with me as private composition students over Skype, and though I have worked with some of them for years, we have never met in person.  They are candid about the challenges they are facing, as well as some of the ways in which the world of composition seems to be evolving.More about Ben SchweitzerMore about Jonty WattMore about Thomas McGeeSUPPORT THIS PODCASTPatreonDonorboxORDER SAMUEL ANDREYEV’S NEWEST RELEASEIridescent NotationLINKSYouTube channelOfficial WebsiteTwitterInstagramEdition Impronta, publisher of Samuel Andreyev’s scoresEPISODE CREDITSPodcast artwork photograph © 2019 Philippe StirnweissSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/samuelandreyev)
