  • Neville Bower Memories of a student
    4 weeks 1 day ago

    I was one of Bower's last music students. I'd like to think that students like Mark Tong and myself inspired him to go back to composing, but I suspect the truth is more like we drove him to it. I was writing minimalist ambient pieces while Mark specialised in Charles Ives style pianistic forearm smashes and idolised Harrison Birtwhistle. Slough (Upton) Grammar was a soul-destroying place to teach and learn music; subsequently I got the benefit of one-on-one musical tuition. Bower had a reputation for purple-faced biblical inventive with which he used to regale the fifth formers, such was his frustration. Another of his catch-phrases was "they'd never have done this to me at Ealing!".
    We performed a now-obligatory high-school rock concert during which we did a punk homage to Bower. Knowing his views on popular music we fully expected him to be outraged; in fact, I caught sight of him standing at the back of the hall with his arms crossed and an uncharacteristic wry grin, so I guess he got the irony.
    "Neville Bower, Neville Bower / He's a one-man super-power!"
    Reading this, I'm aware of how much I absorbed from my time with Bower. I still write in my own interpretation of a tonal-chromatic system and have a deep appreciation for the students of Rimsky-Korsakov. We all experimented with serialism in the '80s and found it limited. I also remember him working on "Evocation" a couple of years before publication; it inspired me to attempt a short serial solo clarinet piece at the time.
    Thank you so much for this biography; lineage is important.

  • Charles Koechlin Part of "Jungle book"
    2 months 4 weeks ago

    This composition is part of Koechlin's "Jungle Book" (Le Livre de la Jungle). I admit that it is a bit hard to find, but it is actually listed near bottom of the page of that composition:
    https://musicalics.com/nl/componist/Charles-Koechlin/Livre-de-la-Jungle-...

    I noticed that a search for the piece on my site gives the correct result, but only further down the list. I maybe should look into the setup of my search.
