Voice of equality through music ends Proms season

Yahoo! Music News - Sun, 09/13/2015 - 07:14

US conductor Marin Alsop performs at the last night of the BBC Proms festival of classical music at the Royal Albert Hall in London, BritainAmerican conductor Marin Alsop brought the 120th season of the Proms, the world's biggest and longest running music festival, to a close in London on Saturday, with an acknowledgement of the power of music to help overcome inequality. "It's clear inequality is one of the greatest challenges facing us today," said Alsop, who returned to the podium to lead the BBC Symphony Orchestra through the traditional Last Night of the Proms celebrations two years after becoming the first woman to conduct the concert. In the cavernous, oval-shaped Albert Hall, German tenor Jonas Kaufmann continued the final evening's eclectic musical program with a selection of Puccini arias, including 'Nessun Dorma', while Danielle de Niese, described by the New York Times as "opera's coolest soprano", led an audience sing-along of a medley of songs from The Sound of Music in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary.

Elvis Costello puts his memoir to music

Yahoo! Music News - Sat, 09/12/2015 - 00:08

Artwork for Elvis Costello "Unfaithful Music & Soundtrack Album"The iconic British singer-songwriter and producer who came to prominence as part of the 1970s New Wave is releasing a double album of songs to accompany his forthcoming book. Costello's eagerly awaited memoir "Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink", which will hit bookshops on October 13, looks back on the themes, stories and incidents that have shaped his life in front of and away from the microphone. "Unfaithful Music & Soundtrack Album" contains 38 tracks that the artist claims offer the deepest emotional connection to the themes and stories in the book. And, like his traditional album output, this release will contain alternative takes, demos and two previously unreleased songs: "April 5th," written and recorded with Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson and John Leventhal, and "I Can't Turn It Off," a solo recording from 1975.
