lisa null virtuosity and traditional music (103* d) RE: virtuosity and traditional music 12 Mar 07

From Marje's note:

Points well taken but:

"The same would apply if a folk singer were to sing the Hallelujah Chorus in the style of a shanty, adding shouts or "Hup!" at intervals" -- this sounds so good, I can hardly wait to try it out!

....or a traditional flute player joined an orchestra and insisted on putting traditional slides and slurs into a classical piece.

Actually one of my favorite virtuosi musicians is Don Byron who jams and wails Mahler's Symphonies in a klezmer-like jazz trio. Somehow it works-- maybe better than the orchestral settlings ever did!


if you knew Saul Broudy, you would not put a phonebook singing experiment past him. I've seen him do this sort of thing with zip codes.
