Alexander Goehr

Composer

Alexander Goehr, composer and teacher, was born in Berlin on 10 August 1932, son of the conductor Walter Goehr, and was brought to England in 1933.

Goehr is a towering cultural figure of the 20th and 21st centuries. His influence is far reaching from the early days in Manchester where, together with Harrison Birtwistle, Peter Maxwell Davies and John Ogdon he formed the New Music Manchester Group, studied with Messiaen, formed the Music Theatre Ensemble, taught at the New England Conservatory Boston, Yale, Leeds and Cambridge. His influence on countless artists and composers across the world is unique and his music is beautifully crafted, deeply wrought, endlessly thought-provoking and a profound reflection on the modern psyche.

“The combination of mystery and transparent musical language compels attention—as did the edgy, controlled performance—even as the core meaning remained a puzzle. This was one of the best kinds of musical experiences, where one wants to hear the music repeated and get closer to the mystery at the center. “

George Grella, New York Classical Review on

~

It’s our responsibility to convey the love we have for music to our audiences. When this music then touches our listeners we know we are travelling along the right path.”

Lea, Sam & Mengjie

~

expected, under the incisive leadership of Thomas Kemp.” The Gramophone

Stevie Wishart

Composer | Improviser

Stevie Wishart is unique amongst today’s truly creative artists.

~

Stevie is a composer with her roots in improvisation and early music.  She is also a performer on the violin, and on the hurdy-gurdy, a stringed keyboard instrument going back to medieval times, its strings sounded by the rim of a wheel.  This instrument gives a unique “old-and-new” sound, which resonates in Stevie’s compositions.

~

Wishart has performed and had her compositions played at major venues from the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Royal Festival Hall at London’s Southbank Centre, to the Sydney Opera House, and to St Peter’s Basilica Rome, and performed by ensembles ranging from The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment to the Hermes Experiment.  Her 2019 BBC Proms commission was described as:

“The most flamboyant and mood-breaking of the pieces was Stevie Wishart’s “The Last Dance?” She juxtaposed string writing with the punch and heft of the “Glorification” scene from Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring with field recordings of the song of the endangered hooded grebe.”

Dive Deeper into Franz Schmidt – The Symphonies

in December 2023, came the release of Jonathan Berman’s debut recording of Franz Schmidt – The Symphonies with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for the Leipzig based record label Accentus.

This has been universally praised and is, arguably, the best cycle of these Symphonies available on disc, all credit to Jonathan Berman for his deep understanding of the music and his technical skills on the podium, his exuberant & enthusiastic musicianship, and his passion for the music.

From the extensive interview in the cd booklet with MDR’s Martin Hoffmeister, Jonathan concludes :

My great friend and mentor, Oliver Knussen, once said to me after we had been listening to Bernstein’s Schumann Symphonies recordings that these performances really made it sound like the music was being composed as it went along. I still to this day find this such an important idea, and I have tried above all else to create performances of these symphonies by Franz Schmidt which sound and feel as though the music is creating itself note by note, bar by bar.

Beyond the score

Alexander Goehr, Composing a Life

Alexander Goehr, Composing a Life
Teachers, Mentors, and Models
Alexander ‘Sandy’ Goehr and Jack Van Zandt
Foreword by Sally Groves

In the late 1950s and early ’60s Alexander Goehr became known as a radical exponent of serial music. Since then, he has composed more than one hundred major works, including operas, orchestral and chamber pieces, and music for film, television, dance and theatre. He is Emeritus Professor of Music at Cambridge University and one of Europe’s most important music educators. He has written and lectured extensively and his music is performed all over the world.

Jack Van Zandt (b. 1954), an American composer and Goehr’s former pupil and assistant, has co-written this first comprehensive account of the life, creative foundations, and teachings of this great composer.

“… a fascinating study of musical transmission… a serious dialogue about musical influence, that mystery driving even a creative radical such as Goehr. Read this book if you care at all about how culture is transmitted and transformed.”
Fiona Sampson, The Spectator
