DiCaprio As Lenin?
Major Russian film studio Lenfilm says it`s ready to shoot a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the leader of the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin. Since 1997, it stages the Music Festival of Polish Radio, organised by Programme 2 of PR. 10 editions already took place: Szymanowski and his Europe, Mieczysław Karłowicz - Associations of Choice, Bach of the Millennium, Chopin 1999 - Sources & Contrasts, Witold Lutosławski, Romantic Fatherlands of Stanisław Moniuszko, Parisians, 80 Years on Air, Wieniawski - Prologue to the Grand Contest, and Szymanowski`s Distant and Close Worlds.In 1977, at the height of the disco craze, a club opened at 254 West 54th Street in New York City. One of many rarities among studio recordings edited on records, is the concert of Martha Argerich with Sinfonia Varsovia conducted by Grzegorz Nowak, one of the first phonographic editions of the studio, plus a complete set of works of a 17th-century Polish composer Adam Jarzębski, Canzoni e Concerti performed by musicians of Orchestra of the 18th Century, conducted by violinist Lucy van Dael.As `Bones` and `Walking Dead` talent allege they`re victims of Hollywood`s infamously shady accounting, a producer offers a solution to pay filmmakers fairly and incentivize cost-effective work. No worries, Music Vault has an extensive jazz channel featuring everyone from Miles Davis to Herbie Hancock to Tony Bennet , and including newer artists like vocalist Lizz Wright and trio The Bad Plus (They`ve even got a surprising performance from Orange is the New Black`s Lea DeLaria at the Newport Jazz Festival in 2002) The Music Vault also hosts classic music documentaries and interviews, like the Rolling Stones 1976 European Tour documentary below.Apart from cyclic symphony and chamber concerts, for ten years since 1995, also music mornings for children and young were staged once a month on a regular basis. Grove Music Online is the eighth edition of Grove`s Dictionary of Music and Musicians, and contains articles commissioned specifically for the site as well as articles from New Grove 2001, Grove Opera , and Grove Jazz The recently published second editions of The Grove Dictionary of American Music and The Grove Dictionary of Musical Instruments are still being put online, and new articles are added to GMO with each site update.Anne Rolland Architecte has transformed a ground-floor space in a 17th-century Parisian townhouse into a studio apartment with a secret underground room. Produced by Willie`s friend and musical collaborator Buddy Cannon along with co-producer Matt Rollings, Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin features musicians Matt Rollings (piano, B-3 organ, Wurlitzer), Jay Bellerose (drums), David Piltch (bass), Dean Parks (electric guitar, acoustic guitar), Paul Franklin (steel guitar), Kevin Smith (bass), Bobbie Nelson (B-3 organ, piano), Mickey Raphael (harmonica) and Willie Nelson (Trigger).
In February 2012, Willie Nelson entered into an historic new record deal with Legacy Recordings , the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment , marking a label homecoming for Nelson, who, from 1975-1993, had cut a phenomenal string of top-selling singles and albums for Columbia Records, beginning with 1975`s seminal smash Red Headed Stranger.Def Jam`s first hip-hop superstar was a charismatic 17-year-old from Queens named James Todd Smith, better known as LL Cool J (shorthand for Ladies Love Cool James.) Ladies might have dug his debut album, Radio—it was an instant success, both critically and commercially, eventually selling well over a million copies—but at this stage his music was aimed mostly at a male audience.That blueprint would influence both carbon copy artists like Da Brat and Domino and even subtly affect the music of the Notorious B.I.G. and Jay Z (the future East Coast titans, who had rapped like Mr. Funkee of LOTUG and the Fu-Schnickens, respectively, noticeably decompressed their flows, letting words and lines breathe, in the wake of Doggystyle), among other East Coast artists.The year`s other important jazz book is The Long Shadow of the Little Giant (Equinox), in which Simon Spillett reconstructs the life of the great saxophonist Tubby Hayes, a one-time teenage prodigy who died in 1973, aged 38. The best of a generation of British jazz musicians whose overriding priority was to emulate their American heroes, Hayes was also one of the many who allowed that emulation to extend to an engagement with heroin.It`s a pretty simple setup actually, one that we can see on anyone`s desk, if they wanted it. One monitor in portrait mode makes for easy reading and scrolling through long documents, but right now it`s an awesome way to find and keep track of what`s playing in your Spotify playlists (or whatever other music player/service you prefer.) Think of it as mission control for what`s coming out of those speakers while you work.
Their stories, once out in the open, demonstrated evidence of an open secret” in the music industry: ongoing creepy, abusive behavior of men, from the very powerful (Kesha is in the middle of a lawsuit with her label head, producer Dr. Luke, for alleged sexual assault and battery ) down to moderate levels of influence, such as Life or Death PR, a small but known company that caters primarily to indie music acts.Famous Russian director, screenwriter and producer Vladimir Bortko says he`d be ready to direct such a movie if the actor asked him. The images he photographed there have become legendary, capturing the club`s famed revelers, dancers in costume and general, drunken exhilaration—and yet, incredibly, Studio 54 (published by Max Ström) marks the first time in history that they have seen publication. The studio then makes you wait in a queue for one to four years to begin the audit.When asked about this, the studio always represents that it doesn`t get the credit (even though the company that owns the studio does) so it has nothing to do with the profit the studio pays out. Delaying audits not only allows the studio to use the cash for years but also weakens the participants` resolve to fight for a fuller settlement of their claims because their capital has been tied up for so long. If it legitimately owes an aggregate of, say, $1 billion to participants, and only half audit, and then 95 percent of those people settle their claims at 40 cents on the dollar rather than sue, the studio saves itself $810 million.And the effect of studio productions costing more than they should could exceed, in the aggregate, fairer payments of profits owed to filmmakers because most movies are not profitable — and the price tag of those bombs drops to the studio`s bottom line no matter what, while profits are paid out only on a lucky few. Some of the concerts staged in Witold Lutosławski Concert Studio and transmitted to other foreign radio stations, are Polish Radio`s contribution to the concert season of the European Broadcasting Union.Since 1995, Polish Radio has been co-organising the International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn, therefore, every year in the second half of September the studio features performances of the works of contemporary composers and 20th-century classics. I`d seen the Spiders from Mars show at Radio City in February 1973 before I met Debbie.
