Ep. 55: Alan Theisen

2021-06-0901:17:01

The world of music doesn't always have to be black and white. Genres of music don't always have to remain individualized and separate, and composers are not required to stick to writing a specific genre of music. Alan Theisen, a composer, saxophonist, author, and educator, is a man who appreciates all types of music and uses his background to meld genres of music that would often never be considered together, encouraging the new music community to be the best it can be. Featured piece: Ondes et Ombres for violin, clarinet, and piano Theme music is by Daryl Banner.

When we hear the name George Gershwin, we often associate it with jazz or musical theater, but he didn't see himself that way. He saw himself as a standard composer of his time and influenced by the sounds around him. So what does that mean for his opera Porgy and Bess? Or is it a Broadway musical?

Mother Goose has been a staple in many a child's life. Her tales of magic and adventure inspire wonder, and even in adulthood, her stories touch us. They certainly were of great importance to Maurice Ravel, who wrote a piano suite using several fairytales, and was so touched by them that he orchestrated them and then turned it into a ballet.

When Ralph Vaughan Williams was rummaging through old hymnals, he discovered a tune by a composer of England's past Thomas Tallis. This simple tune would inspire Vaughan Williams to write a work for string quartet and double string orchestra, Fantasia on a Theme  by Thomas Tallis. In creating this piece he melded two worlds together, the modern with the old, clearing the dust from a long forgotten tune and bringing it to new heights.

The music of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, IV: Oblivion, and V: Skyrim turned the tides of video game music composing.

So much of the music of Anton Bruckner was privately dedicated to the God he served, but his final work was publicly dedicated to "the Beloved God." Without a doubt, Bruckner's works are a representation of his devotion and unwavering faith, but there's a dark side to his story that is often hidden behind the blinding brilliance of his symphonies, especially his Symphony No. 9.  Theme music is by Daryl Banner: https://darylbanner.bandcamp.com/  Become a member of The Composer Chronicles on Patreon to get ad-free versions of all the episodes, early access to those ad-free versions, access to the member-only podcast Unscripted, and other things podcast related! https://www.patreon.com/thecomposerchronicles  Join me and an incredible, growing community living healthier lifestyles in a body positive space with Roy Belzer Fitness: https://roybelzerfitness.com/signup and use offer code chronpodcast at checkout!  Alexandrian Media Teespring: https://teespring.com/stores/alexandrianmedia  Music used in this episode: Ascent Classique by Trevor Kowalski A Drop in the Ocean by Jakob Ahlbom Daydream in Silver by Trevor Kowalski Carefully the Water Lilies by Trevor Kowalski This Creed by Johannes Bornlof  Sources used for this episode: Tim Rayborn, Beethoven's Skull: Dark, Strange, and Fascinating Tales from the World of Classical Music and Beyond (New York: Skyhorse Publishing, 2016), 111-113.

Petrushka, Igor Stavinksy's second ballet, is a tragic tale of a living puppet who is treated like a mere toy and brought to the point of madness. Ironically, such a sad tale brought Stravinsky a great deal of success, especially after the triumph that was his previous ballet The Firebird. However, there's more you do not know, hidden behind the curtain.
