Online music licensing venture makes offer to allay EU concerns

Yahoo! Music News - Mon, 03/16/2015 - 19:16
Three of Europe's biggest groups, which collects royalties for songwriters and performers, have offered concessions in a bid to soothe European Union regulatory concerns about their plan to set up an online music licensing venture. The European Commission in January said it was concerned that the planned online venture by Britain's PRS for Music Limited (PRSfM), Sweden's Foreningen Svenska Tonsattares Internationella Musikbyra (STIM) and Germany's Gesellschaft für musikalische Auffuehrungs- und mechanische Vervielfaeltigungsrechte (GEMA) could lead to higher prices. Its preliminary review said that the joint venture would reduce the number of market players from four to two, would increase its bargaining power and could lead to higher prices for online music licences.

Music giant Boulez turns 90 with legacy growing

Yahoo! Music News - Sat, 03/14/2015 - 05:33

French musician Pierre BoulezHailed as one of the greatest living composers, Pierre Boulez is earning worldwide praise as he approaches 90, even as he sometimes suffers in his native France from the idea that he is stern and dogmatic. Ahead of his birthday on March 26, the Philharmonie de Paris -- the brand-new, ultra-modern concert hall that was conceived in no small part by Boulez -- is seeking to dispel that notion with a new exhibition. "The cliche is that his music is severe and that he became a dictator, an ayatollah or even the fuhrer from the moment he moved to Germany," said Laurent Bayle, the director of the Philharmonie de Paris and disciple of Boulez. Boulez emerged as a forceful presence after World War II by championing serialism, a rigid version of Arnold Schoenberg's atonality that defied traditional classical conceptions of setting music in keys.
